Winner and loser of the week: James Charles is male face of CoverGirl; Beyhive swarms on Betsy McCaughey
James Charles. Not once have I gone to Sephora and asked a consultant at the counter to make me look like a 17-year-old boy. Well, those days are behind me now because James Charles is the most glam being on earth. Charles, whose highlighted cheekbones could pierce through the Arctic, whose eyebrows give new meaning to "on fleek" is now the first ever male face of CoverGirl. Charles, whose fierce makeup skills have garnered him over 400,000 Instagram followers, will star in CoverGirl's new mascara campaign, "So Lashy." Oh, and he gets to be an ambassador alongside Katy-friggin-Perry. "Just wrapped another great CoverGirl shoot," she wrote on her Instagram. "Honored to have the pleasure to announce the very first CoverBoy, James Charles!" Charles took to his own Instagram: "I am so honored and excited to be working with such an iconic brand. I started my Instagram one year ago to inspire others and as an artistic outlet to challenge myself creatively. I truly hope that this shows that anyone and everyone can wear makeup and can do anything if you work hard." Yaaaaasssss. Runner Up winners for this week: Ken Bone, Ken Bone's sweater and Gwyneth Paltrow's late father for telling her she was being a real a--hole at the height of her fame.
Just look at his senior portrait. Legend.
Betsy McCaughey. According to Billboard, Hillary Clinton said in December that she hoped to be "as good a president as Beyoncé is a performer." That's fair. I'd like to do a lot of things as good as Beyoncé. But then former New York Lt. Gov. gave the web the most "what the?" moment with a stretch as big as Sasha Fierce's fanbase when she appeared on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon. McCaughey read lyrics from Beyoncé's anthem Formation in an attempt to compare the lyrics' vulgarities to the leaked 2005 recorded statements made by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. "Hillary Clinton expresses that she finds the language on that bus horrific, but in fact she likes language like this, quote, 'I came to slay b----, when he 'F' me good I take his a-- to Red Lobster,' that happens to be line from Beyoncé, her favorite performer, whom she says she idolizes and says she would like to imitate," McCaughey said while other panelists stared in disbelief, Lemon laughing. Let's break it down. 1. Beyonce isn't running for president and 2. those lyrics are about a consensual relationship with her husband. The clip, for obvious reasons, went viral and McCaughey got absolutely roasted for it. And of course, the Beyhive swarmed to flood McCaughey's social media pages with bee emojis and Red Lobster jokes. You bring Beyoncé into this, you get stung.
