Yara Shahidi Wants in on the Rihanna & Lupita Nyong'o Movie

Something iconic is happening: Twitter pitched a movie with Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o (based on an incredible photo of the two at Paris Fashion Week), and both women have agreed to the proposal… and now actress Yara Shahidi wants in!

Let’s back up a minute. The photo that inspired it all is this one of Rihanna and Lupita sitting side by side, Rihanna looking posh as ever and Lupita looking prim and put-together in the classiest way. The picture began going viral, but what really got the Internet going was the tweet that came after, which was a movie proposal.

Here is the shot:

Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and Lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scams,” Twitter user @1800SADGAL tweeted, to nearly 100,000 retweets.

What happened next between these power celebrities is amazing…

Dove Cameron Shares Her Biggest Hair Mistake Ever

Dove Cameron Shares Her Biggest Hair Mistake Ever

Dove Cameron has perfect hair — you know it, we know it, the world knows it.

So, when the Descendants 2 star shared this story about her biggest hair mistake ever, we were literally shocked!

“My biggest hair mishap was definitely when I got bored one night and decided to dye my naturally blonde locks espresso brown,” she revealed to ManeAddicts. “And cut my own bangs, way too far back.”

But that’s not all! It was “complete with a self tanner on my body AND face. You guys. There’s a reason I’m an actress and not literally anything else.”

While we wouldn’t mind seeing Dove with brunette hair (we bet it’s gorgeous), we’re glad she got everything fixed!

Dove is pictured below at the H&M Loves Coachella Tent with Yara Shahidi and Ariel Winter. Ariel is also seen out with boyfriend Levi Meaden at the festival.

When is Yara Shahidi Going to Make Her College Selection?

When is Yara Shahidi Going to Make Her College Selection?

Black-ish actress Yara Shahidi isn’t like most 17-year-olds. She’s the star of a huge network comedy, she’s a political activist, and former First Lady Michelle Obama wrote her college recommendation letter, which, you know. Casual.

Oh, and Yara also has a 4.6 GPA and got into every school she applied to, which doesn’t seem even humanly possible.

“I feel like, in my head, ‘This is 12 years in the making, guys,’” she told E! News. “This was 12 academic years. We’re finally here!”

She is also making the choice to not make a choice — at least, not right away.

“I will be submitting May 1 at midnight,” Yara said.

Trevor Jackson Joins Yara Shahidi's 'black-ish' Spinoff!

Trevor Jackson Joins Yara Shahidi's 'black-ish' Spinoff!

News about a black-ish spinoff with Yara Shahidi just got even more exciting!

It’s reported that Trevor Jackson will join the potential spin-off, as a college freshman at the same college that Zoey (Yara‘s character) will be attending.

Not much else is known about his character at all, but we’re dying to know more!

“[Filming on] a college campus and having Zoey experience life as an independent would a perfect place to discuss [those issues],” Yara shared about the spin-off recently.

Yara is also pictured below with co-stars Miles Brown and Marsai Martin at the For Your Consideration black-ish event in Los Angeles.

Yara Shahidi Dishes Details On 'Black-ish' Spinoff

By now, you’ve probably already heard the exciting news that Black-ish star Yara Shahidi may be getting her own spinoff show.

The 17-year-old actress is opening up about what Zoey’s adventures might look like.

“Well, that is up to the heads of ABC, but yeah, we want to explore and see where Zoey is going,” Yara told Seventeen.com. “And the fact that Zoey is college-aged [makes it] important to address that, because on a college campus – given the socio-political landscape of our society at the moment – we’re not only dealing with race policy that we got from Blackish, [but also] the intersectionality of race, gender, sexuality and political views and ideals.”

Yara added, “And so [filming on] a college campus and having Zoey experience life as an independent would a perfect place to discuss that.”
