We now know a bit more about Beyoncé‘s forthcoming new album, Renaissance.

The superstar singer posted an ethereal photo of herself upon a see-through horse on her Instagram account on Thursday (Friday morning AEST), captioned with some insight.

“Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world,” Beyoncé wrote.

“It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom.

“It was a beautiful journey of exploration.”

She released her first single, Break My Soul, from the new album last week and it became a quick hit.

The dance track was co-produced by the same team who brought us Single Ladies – Tricky Stewart and The-Dream. Jay-Z is also on the writing credits, as are the writers of Robin S’s 1993 hit Show Me Love, which is prominently sampled in the song.

In an apparent slight to major streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music, the song initially appeared only on Tidal – the streaming service co-owned by Beyoncé’s husband, Jay-Z – three hours before its announced release time of midnight in the US, and on Vevo/YouTube an hour or so later.

Beyoncé has a history of this: her 2016 Lemonade album was available only on Tidal for three years.

Renaissance, the singer’s long-expected seventh album, is set to come out on July 29.

Beyoncé’s last full-length album was Lemonade in 2016 – the singer has actually released four albums since this blockbuster outing, although none of them are full Beyoncé solo albums.

“I hope you find joy in this music,” she said on Instagram.

“I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”

Fans have already sleuthed information suggesting the album will contain 16 tracks, and signs of a multi-part release are clear from the billing as “Act 1”.

Sources told Variety the album will feature both dance and country-leaning tracks, with contributions from hit songwriter Ryan Tedder, who co-wrote Beyoncé’s 2008 hit Halo as well as hits for Adele, Taylor Swift, the Jonas Brothers and Tedder’s own group, OneRepublic.

Also said to be involved is Raphael Saadiq, who has crafted hits for Mary J Blige, D’Angelo, Stevie Wonder, John Legend and Andra Day as well as his own excellent solo albums, and executive-produced A Seat at the Table, Beyoncé’s sister Solange’s widely praised 2016 album.

Jared Kushner Memoir Reviewed Less Favorably Than an Anesthesia-Free Colonoscopy

#Jared #Kushner #Memoir #Reviewed #Favorably #AnesthesiaFree #Colonoscopy

Jared Kushner’s memoir, Breaking History, will be released on August 23. If you’ve been hemming and hawing over clicking that preorder button, and wondering if it’s possible the former first son-in-law actually wrote something worth reading, The New York Times is here to tell you: HE MOST CERTAINLY DID NOT.

In a historically savage review published on Wednesday, book critic Dwight Garner writes that, essentially, Breaking History is one of the worst things he’s ever read. Of course, The New York Times isn‘t in the business of simply telling its audience, “This book sucks, don’t buy it unless you plan to use the pages to line your bird cage,” and so, Garner elaborated. Here are a few of the things he has to say about the memoir and the guy who—with the help of a ghostwriter—put it out into the world:

  • “Kushner looks like a mannequin, and he writes like one”
  • “This book reminded me of watching a cat lick a dog’s eye goo”
  • “The tone is college admissions essay”
  • “Queasy-making”
  • It includes cringeworthy praise for its subject, such as: “Jared did an amazing job,” “Jared’s a genius,” and “You deserve an award for all you’ve done”

Unsurprisingly, as Garner notes, Kushner seems to be entirely unaware that he landed the gig in the White House for one reason only—and it’s not because he’s a boy genius. Garner says that Kushner “writes as if he believes foreign dignitaries (and less-than dignitaries) prized him in the White House because he was the fresh ideas guy, the starting point guard, the dimpled go-getter,” and “betrays little cognizance that he was in demand because, as a landslide of other reporting has demonstrated, he was in over his head, unable to curb his avarice, a cocky young real estate heir who happened to unwrap a lot of Big Macs beside his father-in-law.” He appears to be totally oblivious as to why people who were actually qualified for their jobs—or, y’know, sort of qualified, with this being the Trump administration, after all—couldn’t stand him. To boot, he “almost entirely ignores the chaos, the alienation of allies, the breaking of laws and norms, the flirtations with dictators, the comprehensive loss of America’s moral leadership, and so on, ad infinitum.” And despite the fact that the former first son-in-law and Ivanka Trump are reportedly distancing themselves from the former president, Garner reports that “Kushner’s fealty to Trump remains absolute.”

According to young Kush, the matter of him being denied a top secret security clearance, until his father-in-law reportedly intervened, was no big deal. (Perhaps the concerns of the intelligence officials who reportedly didn’t think he could be trusted should be reviewed again, given recent events.) He also still apparently believes that it was totally unfair for his father, Charles Kushner, to be prosecuted so harshly by then U.S. attorney Chris Christie for (1) tax fraud and (2) hiring a prostitute to sleep with his brother-in-law, filming the encounter, and then mailing it to his sister as retaliation against his brother-in-law for cooperating with federal investigators. (Kushner the Younger previously insisted, according to Christie’s 2019 memoir, that such things were “family matter[s],” and not something for the government to stick its nose in.) And if that doesn’t upset you, in reflecting on his relationship with Mohammed bin Salman, Kushner at one point tells readers that he wasn’t willing to turn his back on the Saudi crown prince over one measly kidnapping and dismemberment.

Of that pesky little insurrection business? According to Garner, the 492-page book “ends with Kushner suggesting he was unaware of the events of January 6 until late in the day. He mostly sidesteps talking about spurious claims of election fraud,” Garner adds. “He seems to have no beliefs beyond carefully managed appearances and the art of the deal. He wants to stay on top of things, this manager, but doesn’t want to get to the bottom of anything.”

Found! The Lip Plumper in Jennifer Aniston’s ‘The Morning Show’ Routine

#Lip #Plumper #Jennifer #Anistons #Morning #Show #Routine

Us Weekly has affiliate partnerships so we may receive compensation for some links to products and services.

We plan on doing a lot of smiling this summer. That means we’re stocking up on some new lip products during Prime Day!

We’re definitely all about that glossy, soft and supple lip look right now. We want a plumping effect, but maybe without the extreme commitment — and the expensive cost. With fillers, you also run the risk of not liking the results or finding them too unnatural. That’s why we love a product like this gloss, which may plump lips both instantly and over time!

So, how do we know this plumping gloss is worth a Prime Day purchase? Obviously the deal is great, but we would’ve added it to our cart even at full price. Why? Because it was spotted as part of Jennifer Aniston’s makeup routine for The Morning Show! The actress shared a photo of her glam team, Chris McMillan and Angela Levin, posing in front of a batch of top-notch products they use on the star for filming the award-winning show on her Instagram back in January 2020. This gloss made the cut!

This gloss comes in five sheer colors, including clear, and has a high-shine finish. It’s infused with Volulip and hyaluronic acid for hydrating and plumping effects. Within three to five minutes of application, you may notice plumper lips, and if you apply twice per day for 30 days, you may start to notice your lips looking plumper even without any product on!

Another very cool thing about this product is its unique silicone applicator. This gloss was made to be worn over other lip products if you want, which is why we love that the applicator can very easily be wiped clean. It won’t be left permanently stained like typical cushions or brushes just because you want a little extra pigmentation!

When the brand ran a consumer study on 30 participants, 97% said their lips felt hydrated and looked plumper from using this cruelty-free product. Want to check out those results for yourself? Order today, before the price goes up again!
