Mariah Launches Beauty Line
While there isn’t much territory left for Mariah Carey to conquer, reports say Mimi is set to launch a new Beverly Hills beauty company by the end of the year. It will be a joint effort between Mariah and her manager, Stella Bulochnikov, featuring their own products of makeup, skin care and fragrances.
One source says, “They plan on opening a brick-and-mortar store in Beverly Hills and have been secretly looking at a number of retail spaces with a plan to unveil it this holiday season or next year by the latest.”
Mimi has been down this path before, on a smaller scale, when she launched a glam holiday makeup collection last year with MAC Cosmetics. In true Mariah fashion, it featured her trademark sparkly and champagne nude tones.
John Legend Sends Video Message To Family of Manchester Victim
It was one week ago today that a suicide bomber attacked an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England killing 22 people. Yesterday, John Legend sent a video message to the parents of a 15-year-old girl killed in the attack after they released a recoding of her singing Legend’s song “All of Me.”
Olivia Campell was among the first victims to be named after Monday’s blast. Her parents, Charlotte and Paul, say they want to make her dream come true by getting her song onto the charts in an effort to support all of the victims of the attack.
