OP’s Watching: T.I. Named In Fed Cryptocurrency Investigation, Settles For $75K

The Feds have their eye on a cryptocurrency scheme that T.I. got inadvertently wrapped up in, allegedly. The Atlanta rapper has been fined $ 75,000 for his involvement.

Reuters reports that on Friday (Sept. 11), T.I., born Clifford Harris, agreed to pay $ 75,000 to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to settle charges that he broke securities laws by selling fraudulent crypto-currency investments.

The “You Don’t Know Me” rapper and four associates who were involved in companies called FLiK and CoinSpark, which offered up cryptocurrency that Tip promoted. According to the SEC, back in 2017, T.I. was pushing “FLiK tokens” on his social media accounts while claiming he was FLiK co-owner—when he actually was not.

Per the settlement, T.I. didn’t confirm nor deny being involved in any sort of scam. Per his lawyer, T.I. expressed remorse at doing business with film producer Ryan Felton, who reportedly has a controlling stake in the aforementioned companies, and is the alleged ringleader.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Felton allegedly made some lavish purchases, included $ 1 million home and a Ferrari, with the money he finessed out of investors. While the others involved have agreed to settle the charges, Felton is reportedly still fighting the case, for now.

Eyebrows may raise because Tip’s lawyer, Henry E. Mazurek, says his client “fully cooperated” with the SEC after he claims to have discovered that Felton’s plot was suspect and stating that he never received a dime from him.

But hey, T.I. is a civilian, you think he’s going he can just ignore the Feds?

Lizzo continues to stack the W’s. Last night (Feb. 22), the “Truth Hurts” singer won Entertainer of the Year at the 51st NAACP Image Awards.

Aired live on BET from Pasadena, CA, ABC’s black-ish won a gang of awards as did the feature film Just Mercy—which won for Outstanding Motion Picture. Also, numerous entertainers came through and represented including Michael B. Jordan, Tracey Ellis Ross (who won for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series), Tiffany Haddish, Janelle Monae and even Rihanna.

Other notable winners included U.S. Congressman John Lewis, who was recognized with the NAACP Chairman’s Award, and Rihanna, who earned the President’s Award which is granted in honor of special achievement and distinguished public service.

Said Rihanna after accepting her award, “Thank you to the NAACP for all of your efforts to ensure equality for our communities. Thank you for celebrating our strength and tenacity. We’ve been denied opportunities since the beginning of time. Still, we prevail. so I’m honored. Imagine what we can do together. Thank you for this honor.”

But just before that moment, keep in mind that Rih Rih kept it very woke. Speaking of those of us with friends from other backgrounds, she said “when we’re marching and protesting and posting about the Michael Brown Jr and Atatiana Jeffersons of the world, tell your friends to pull up…” to applause.

Zoe Turner Named Creative Director at St. John

Zoe Turner, a British designer who cut her teeth at Christian Dior Couture, Alberta Ferretti and Max Mara, has become the creative director of St. John, the Irvine, Calif.-based ready-to-wear firm.
Turner is responsible for St. John’s collections, retail environments and the 57-year-old firm’s multimedia presence.
Turner had been freelancing for St. John for about eight months then switched to full-time status. She is in the process of relocating to Los Angeles from her homes in Paris and outside Milan.
Turner’s first collection for St. John will be fall 2020.
“I thought to start off the collection, it would be important for me to identify the brand’s icons and the codes of St. John. I’ve been going through a  lot of the archive, the old magazines and old clothing from the brand, to identify the icons of St. John through silhouettes, print, proportion, color and technique,” said Turner.
She said some of the icons had either been forgotten about or watered down through the years.
Founded in 1962 by Robert and Marie Gray, St. John became a powerhouse brand synonymous with power women who lived in the tightly knit suits and gowns known for traveling well and always looking polished. Devotees of the brand were such

The Broad Museum Celebrates the Opening of Soul Of A Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983 Art Exhibition - Arrivals

Jay-Z just got onboard with the legal weed hustle. Today (July 9), cannabis company Caliva announced it has named the Brooklyn multi-hyphenate its Chief Brand Strategist.

Reportedly it’s a multiyear deal and Jigga is tasked with “driving creative direction, outreach efforts and strategy” for the brand. We’re going to say he has experience in such matters.

Part of Mr. Carter’s duties includes the participation of individuals who were incarcerated for their illegal marijuana activities. The goal is giving the aforementioned a fair shot at getting in the game post-legalization.

“Anything I do, I want to do correctly and at the highest level,” said Jay-Z via a press statement. “With all the potential in the cannabis industry, Caliva’s expertise and ethos makes them the best partner for this endeavor. We want to create something amazing, have fun in the process, do good and bring people along the way.”

Caliva is a cannabis consumer products company that was founded in 2015. The brand boasts a first-place finish in the 2019 High Times Cannabis Cup thanks to the “Z-Cube” in the Best Hybrid category. Other products it sells include vapes, tinctures and beverages.

Jay-Z wins, again.

A number of fires in Lousiana that occurred at churches with a sizeable Black congregation sparked an investigation that eventually moved towards the involvement of federal authorities. An arrest has been made in the fires and the lone suspect is said to be the son of a deputy sheriff.

KATC reports:

Sources confirm the suspect in the church arsons is Holden Matthews, 21. He is the son of a St. Landry Parish Deputy.

St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz tells KATC that, despite rumors, Matthews’ father did not turn his son in to deputies.

Matthews was booked at around 5:30 this evening into the St. Landry Parish jail.

We’re told that the Louisiana State Fire Marshal’s Office will be holding a press conference tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. Governor John Bel Edwards is expected to be there along with officials from St. Landry Parish, The FBI, and ATF.

“I’m very proud of the investigative effort that has lead to this arrest. I’m prayerful that we can close this horrific chapter and begin to heal. I’m especially uplifted by the Christian Community right now. God bless us one and all,” Congressman Clay Higgins said in a statement to KATC.

Charges for Matthews have not yet been announced.

Snoop Dogg Offers Home To Abandoned Dog Named Snoop

Snoop Dogg In Concert - Hollywood, FL

Source: Johnny Louis / Getty

One of the worst things dog owners can do is abandoned their pet to the outside world, especially after they’ve been domesticated and used to the comforts of home. A man was caught on video in England doing just that to a dog that rescue workers named “Snoop,” prompting a huge rally of support including an offer to adopt from the dog’s namesake, Snoop Dogg.

The Daily Star reports:

The rapper was among those horrified by CCTV footage of a couple dumping the pooch at the side of a road.

A clip, watched by millions online, shows the Staffordshire Bull Terrier desperately trying to get back in the car as the pair drove off in Stoke-on-Trent.

Now Snoop Dogg says he wants to re-home the pet at his Los Angeles mansion.

He told the Daily Star: “It is heartbreaking.

“There is always room for another dog in Casa de Snoop.

“If he really needed a home then he has one with us.

As Uncle Snoop said to the outlet, the footage has since spread across news networks in the region and beyond with other dog lovers offering Snoop the same as far as housing goes. Hopefully, the pooch will land on all four paws safe and sound before too long.

There are so many programs and so much to love about your local branch, and I’m excited to become a New York Public Library Ambassador to explore that with you.”

In a statement, NYPL President Anthony W. Marx applauded her continued commitment to the community. “Angela Yee is a remarkable person whose success as a radio personality, entrepreneur, and writer is equaled by her insatiable desire to give back to her city and its people.”

Mayor Bill de Blasio and Chirlane McCray inducted the Brooklyn native at their annual West Indian-American and Caribbean-American Heritage celebration at Gracie Mansion on Tuesday, August 28.

A Robot Named Clunk (Book 1 in the Hal Spacejock series) – Simon Haynes

Simon Haynes - A Robot Named Clunk (Book 1 in the Hal Spacejock series)  artwork

A Robot Named Clunk (Book 1 in the Hal Spacejock series)

Hal Spacejock, no. 1 · Hal Spacejock Universe

Simon Haynes

Genre: Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Publish Date: August 19, 2011

Publisher: Simon Haynes

Seller: Smashwords, Inc.


Strap in for the ride of your life! Witty, fast, funny and moving. What more could you ask for? Clunk's grateful when his boss sends him for a refit, because old robots are usually junked. Being old and wise, he knows there's a catch, but at first it doesn't seem too bad. The workshop performing the refit is located on a nearby planet, and Clunk's boss wants him to carry out a trivial task while he's there: help a freelancer pick up some cargo. It's a simple job, straight in and out … but don't be late. How can Clunk refuse? He's a certified co-pilot, so landing in a deserted field under cover of darkness, avoiding customs ships, orbital lasers and trigger-happy warships along the way, is not a problem. Plus Clunk's a robot, so he has no choice but to obey. Unfortunately the freelance pilot is a much bigger challenge, because Hal Spacejock is obstinate, cocky, over-confident, and woefully under-skilled, and yet he refuses to cede control of his ship to a mere robot. Worse, Hal's only got 24 hours to pay off his debts, or he'll lose his ship … and his life. Can the two of them sort out their differences and deliver the cargo, or will they still be wrestling over the controls when both deadlines expire? A Robot Named Clunk is one part buddy movie, two parts laughter and three parts madcap adventure.

Martha Hunt Named Face of Ramy Brook

RAMY BROOK TAPS MARTHA HUNT: Martha Hunt has been named the face of Ramy Brook, the contemporary women’s sportswear brand. The IMG model will appear in the brand’s first national ad campaign, which will be photographed today by Sebastian Faena.
The shoot takes place at Pier 59  in New York, and the ads are slated to break digitally around Feb. 14.
Best known as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, the 28-year-old Hunt has fronted campaigns for Hugo Boss, Y-3, Max & Co. and Albion Cosmetics. She has also been the spokesmodel for Free People and has walked in more than 180 fashion shows for numerous designers.
“Brand awareness is something we’re working on,” said Cory Cole, head of marketing at Ramy Brook, who said the company is looking to raise its profile. The ads will feature the classic pieces. “It’s the first step to a bigger program for the year,” Cole added.
Hunt is also working on a capsule collection with Ramy Brook Sharp, founder and creative director of Ramy Brook, which will launch exclusively at Bloomingdale’s in March. Hunt will be involved in designing it, and making personal appearances on the capsule’s behalf. “She’ll get behind it in a big way,” Cole said.

Aly Raisman, Yara Shahidi and Rachel Platten Named #AerieReal Role Models

Aerie is bolstering its #AerieReal Role Model initiative.
Actress Yara Shahidi, gold medal gymnast Aly Raisman and award-winning singer-songwriter Rachel Platten will join curvy model and body activist Iskra Lawrence as ambassadors for the intimate apparel, swim and activewear brand, which is owned by American Eagle Outfitters and targets Millennials.
This announcement comes on the heels of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, which are centering conversations about society’s treatment of women. But Aerie has circled in the women’s empowerment space for a few years now. In 2014, it made the decision to stop retouching images and hired Lawrence to model its swimwear and intimate apparel.
“The time is right,” said Jen Foyle, Aerie’s global brand president. “We looked for representatives that could stand for positivity and women’s strength. I would like to say that Aerie is a big part of this movement and we could not be more excited.”
Raisman is known for being the resolute gymnast and U.S. Olympic team captain, but recently gained attention off the mat when she testified against Larry Nassar, the former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics doctor who was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison on sexual assault and abuse charges.

EXCLUSIVE: Winona Ryder Named L’Oréal Paris Brand Ambassador

L’Oréal Paris has tapped Winona Ryder to appear in a campaign tied to a massive rebrand of its U.S. hair business, WWD has exclusively learned.
A “robust, 360-campaign” comprising digital, social, TV and print advertising is set to launch Sunday during the Golden Globes with a TV commercial featuring Ryder, said Anne Marie Nelson-Bogle, senior vice president of marketing at L’Oréal Paris.
Titled “The Comeback,” the campaign is tied to the repositioning of the majority of the L’Oréal Paris hair-care products, including shampoos, conditioners and treatments, plus a few new products, under a new franchise called Elvive.
The Elvive platform focuses on damage prevention, a message L’Oréal is hoping U.S. consumers — fond of curling irons, blowouts, dry shampoo and bleach — will relate to. L’Oréal research found that eight in 10 women in the U.S. have damaged hair — and 18- to 34-year-olds in particular overindex in hot-tool-related damage.
“Everyone does love a comeback, and we will be communicating that damaged hair deserves one, too,” said Nelson-Bogle of the new campaign. “For Winona, we know that from TV sets to the red carpet, her hair has gone through many transformations — her hair is dry and damaged.”
In a commercial airing during the Golden Globes,

James Harden Named Stance Brand Ambassador For Socks and Underwear

James Harden has added another cushy sponsorship to his resume. The Houston Rockets’ high scoring guard has been named Stance’s first Punk & Poet brand ambassador for socks and underwear.

“I’ve been a fan of Stance for as long as I’ve known about them,” said Harden via a press relased. “I’m excited to officially kick this thing off.”

Harden will release a signature line of Stance socks, along with Stance underwear—a new venture for the fast-growing company, too.  

It seems like Stance underwear will help keep the funk at bay thanks a Butter Blend fabric that’s being touted as super soft and “nourishing” to the skin since it’s made from milk protein.

Stance is the official on court sock of the NBA. Harden joins a roster that already includes Klay Thompson and Allen Iverson, amongst others.

Emilia Clarke Named Esquire’s ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’

GQ named her the “Woman of the Year,” and now Emilia Clarke has earned another title to flaunt: Esquire’s “Sexiest Woman Alive.”

The magazine made the announcement on Tuesday at midnight Eastern time after teasing readers with a titillating clip featuring shots of the “Game of Thrones” actress.  

In an accompanying article about the 28-year-old Briton, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, a.k.a. Khaleesi, on the HBO series “Game of Thrones,” Esquire describes the “gorgeous balance of Emilia Clarke.”

“She manages to bring together a number of opposites, to make them natural: sweetness and toughness, emotionalism with a kind of cold-blooded determination. Something in these contrasts explains her sex appeal, too. She can play queen and kid sister, dominatrix and pal,” writes the magazine. 

Esquire’s editorial projects director, Lisa Hintelmann, told The Associated Press that Clarke, who starred in this summer’s “Terminator: Genisys,” was an obvious choice for the “Sexiest Woman” title.

“[She] is unforgettable in ‘Game of Thrones’ and was hands down the number one choice of Esquire’s staff, friends and family,” Hintelmann said.

Dame Helen Mirren Named Special Ambassador of Giorgio Armani’s Films of City Frames

A REAL SPECTACLE: Giorgio Armani has named Dame Helen Mirren special ambassador of the second edition of his Films of City Frames short-movie project, developed in collaboration with Luxottica and Rai.
On Oct. 12, four short movies directed by four international cinema students, who filmed real-life situations featuring Giorgio Armani’s Frames of Life eyewear pieces as protagonists, will be screened at the BFI London Film Festival, running Oct. 7-18.
“The success of the first edition, presented in 2014 at the Toronto International Film Festival, pushed me to continue this initiative and offer another great opportunity to young talents,” Armani said. “Considering the great attention that the British Film Institute has always paid to the research and support of new talents, I thought that the BFI London Film Festival was the right context to present the short movies. I’m also very happy that Dame Helen Mirren joined this year’s project as mentor and special ambassador. For young directors, it’s extremely important to have a point person, and Dame Helen Mirren, with her personality and experience, is the right person to give them precious tips.”
“Being a guide and supporting cinema students is very important for me,” Mirren said. “Thanks to the inspiration and guide of our great friend

A Streetcar Named Desire

Tennessee Williams

Genre: Theater

Publish Date: August 10, 2015

Publisher: PI Media Group

Seller: Persisting Illusion Media Group


The Pulitzer Prize and Drama Critics Circle Award winning play—reissued with an introduction by Arthur Miller ( Death of a Salesman and The Crucible ), and Williams’ essay “The World I Live In.” It is a very short list of 20th-century American plays that continue to have the same power and impact as when they first appeared—57 years after its Broadway premiere, Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire is one of those plays. The story famously recounts how the faded and promiscuous Blanche DuBois is pushed over the edge by her sexy and brutal brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Streetcar launched the careers of Marlon Brando, Jessica Tandy, Kim Hunter, and Karl Malden, and solidified the position of Tennessee Williams as one of the most important young playwrights of his generation, as well as that of Elia Kazan as the greatest American stage director of the ’40s and ’50s.

Ben Higgins Named The Next ‘Bachelor’

Ladies, line up, because there’s a new Bachelor in town … and he’s a fan favorite.  

Ben Higgins, who was “Bachelorette” star Kaitlyn Bristowe’s third choice, was named the new star of “The Bachelor” on Monday night’s episode of “After Paradise.”

The 26-year-old was pretty much a shoo-in to star on the upcoming season after Bachelor Nation supported his campaign following his exit from “The Bachelorette” on July 13. Although, Season 11’s Nick Viall did give Higgins a run for his money. 

“I think he would be a great choice […] I have a lot of respect for Ben H. He is as sweet as everyone thinks he is,” Viall told HuffPost’s “Here to Make Friends” podcast earlier this month. “I might be giving myself too much credit, but Ben kind of reminds me of when I was 26.” 

Higgins seemed to be everyone’s No. 1 choice. Even Amy Schumer called into “After Paradise” to wish him luck. “Find love, and then send some my way, OK?” she said.

The software salesman is excited to begin his journey on the show. “It’s incredible. People like me don’t get opportunities like this,” Higgins told Harrison. “I never thought that this opportunity would be something I could have.” 

Higgins will be on “Good Morning America” to chat more about his upcoming season on Tuesday morning.

Struggle Rapper Named Thot King Busted For Child Porn [Photos]

A 23-year-old terrible rapper has been outed as an equally terrible human being after authorities say he recruited a minor for his Worldstar-ready music videos.

Columbus, Ohio police raided the home of Eric Chavis (also known by his amateur rap moniker Thot King) earlier today, August 20, and charged him with two counts of distribution of child pornography, 10TV reports. The Central Ohio Human Trafficking Task Force interviewed a 16-year who was involved in an April 2015 prostitution sting and she was allegedly promised an opportunity to be the Thot King’s trap queen.

According to federal sources, she arrived at Chavis’ apartment located on 2996 Barclay Square in Columbus and was given alcohol and marijuana to loosen up. The teen then engaged in the explicit videos that were subsequently distributed on social media, porn site and were even available on DVD for sale. Investigators say the victim appeared both nude and partially nude in the videos.

When the girl allegedly asked Thot King to take the XXX material out of circulation, he demanded sexual favors in exchange for his troubles. [Editor’s Note: WTF?!?]

Across town, the home of Chavis’ ex-girlfriend, Casey Casto, was also raided but she told the news that she feels Thot King’s separate seedy content (drugs, guns, etc.) was the motivation for that pillage. Castro’s father tells 10TV that their upstairs bedroom has been used as a porn shoot sight in the past. Chavis isn’t shy about the basis of his rap caricature, either. Music videos titled “Getting Head From a Thot”, “Lesbian World” and “Throw That Booty Back” have been polluting YouTube over the past year.

If convicted on the charges, the Thot King will have a prison throne for up to 20 years.

Take a look at some of the images of Chavis in action in the gallery below. Needless to say, most of these pictures are not workplace friendly.

Dallas Cowboys Rookie Exposed For Salad-Tossing Nonpayment By Hooker Named Throatzilla [PHOTOS]

Former LSU standout and current Dallas Cowboys rookie La’el Collins is already seeing his reputation ruined before the season even gets underway.

He is being accused by a seemingly popular escort in the Dallas, Texas area by the name of Throatzilla for not paying for his Jhené Aiko services.

throatzilla-lael-collins-twitter

Reports BlackSportsOnline:

She is from Dallas and from her IG page likes to show her skill set and point out when guys are flying her out.

I guess Collins got tired of her harassing him on Twitter and got her account suspended, so she released this statement.

I’m an escort & lael Collins hired me to eat his a** & give him head last Sunday but when it came time to pay, he said he meant he would take me out to eat. After us arguing for 20 minutes he agreed to pay me Thursday.

So when Thursday came, he made me delete his number & all of our text messages, but I requested them from Sprint he has now changed his number but I blasted him on Twitter & him & his agent got my Twitter deleted.

She didn’t say how much she is allegedly owed.

Still, it appears that Collins had her Twitter blocked from causing further trouble.

According to the woman’s bio, she’s a true professional and don’t sh*t everybody d!ck because she’s picky. Watch the video below to see what she’s working with.

Zac Posen Named Patron of Designer for Tomorrow Competition

AN AMERICAN IN BERLIN: Picking up where Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney and most recently Tommy Hilfiger left off, Zac Posen has now picked up the baton as patron of Designer for Tomorrow. Now in its seventh year, the Europe-wide competition for emerging fashion talent is sponsored by the German specialty store chain Peek & Cloppenburg and its online fashion shop Fashion ID.
Together with the Designer for Tomorrow jury board, Posen will select the top five designers who will then present capsule looks at a runway show on July 9 during the upcoming Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin. The winner is to receive mentoring from Posen, the members of the Designer for Tomorrow advisory board and the Peek & Cloppenburg team, as well as the opportunity to stage a runway show in Berlin the following July.
At age 34, Posen is the award’s youngest patron to date. “It is an incredible thing to be able to actively support up-and-coming talent in the fashion industry and pass on my experiences and perspectives,” he commented.

Get ready for the next season of “The Bachelorette.” No seriously, get ready.

ABC announced that they are switching up the rules and named TWO new stars of Season 11 during “The Bachelor: After the Final Rose” special on Monday night. Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe will both try to find love … with the same 25 men.

“I think what went through my mind [was], ‘Well, that’s not ideal.’ But if that’s what it takes to find someone …” Bristowe said of being one of two “Bachelorettes.” According to Us Magazine, the ultimate “Bachelorette” will be chosen by the men, and the other will head home.

The 29-year-old dance instructor was a fan favorite during Chris Soules’ season, capturing the adoration of famous “Bachelor” viewers such as Anna Kendrick and former “Bachelorette” star Jillian Harris.

Just a few things in common. @kaitlynbristowe ✌️

Kim Kardashian Named One Of Time Magazine’s 30 Most Influential People On The Internet

Just yesterday, news outlets including The New York Times deemed Kim Kardashian’s hair makeover newsworthy, and now she’s been named one of the 30 Most Influential People on the Internet, according to Time magazine.

The 34-year-old reality star, who the magazine previously named the second most-influential fictional character of 2014 for her “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” avatar, influences the masses along with Taylor Swift, President Obama, Janet Mock, Beyoncé, J.K. Rowling, Jimmy Fallon and Caitlin McNeill, the woman who launched a debate surrounding “blue and black or white and gold.”

What makes Kardashian so influential? According to Time:

She may tout millions of fans in real life, but Kardashian, 34, truly stands out on Instagram. There, she has perfected the art of the selfie: some with famous friends, some in luxurious bathrooms, and all to the delight of her 27 million followers. Long a performer in a reality TV show produced and edited by others, Kardashian also deftly uses Twitter to define and defend her own narrative (“Her eyes were closed and I was feeling my look! Can I live?!?” she sniped after being criticized for cropping her daughter out of a selfie), and of course to promote her various business ventures.

Anyone who writes Kardashian off as empty-headed may be underestimating her influence. She has developed a new kind of star with a deft understanding of how to package and leverage her brand. And Kim Kardashian knows that without the Internet, there would be no Kim Kardashian.

In her Paper magazine interview (which was paired with a nude photo shoot in an attempt to break the Internet), Kardashian admitted that her cultural relevance would be greatly diminished without the help of social media. “I don’t think social media was that heavy when we started our show,” she said, “but I think we really evolved with social media.”

Similarly, in an interview with Adweek, released Sunday, Kardashian said, “Social media plays a huge role in my life and my career. I came at the right time when people just started to get into reality shows. Social media works when you’re open, when you’re honest and people want to feel like they’re getting a little glimpse into your life. It’s not that I brand myself like I’m a celebrity. It’s just I’m living my life and sharing a part of my life with the world.”

While her last statement is up for debate, it doesn’t really matter. Given that the Internet basically created Kim Kardashian (a statement Paris Hilton might dispute), it’s no wonder she’s mastered it.

For the full list of the 30 Most Influential People on the Internet, head over to Time.

The Pinkprint Debuts At No.2 As Nicki Minaj Is Named “Rapper Of The Year”

She’s also been crowned by Complex as the “Best Rapper of 2014,” in a recent interview she explains, “There is no ‘mixtape Nicki,’ I’ve never stopped rapping; I’ve never stopped doing freestyles; I’ve never stopped doing remixes and features; I’ve never stopped raising the bar lyrically.”

Angelina Jolie Named Honorary Dame, Daniel Day-Lewis Receives Knighthood

LONDON (AP) — Angelina Jolie can add royal recognition to Hollywood stardom. The Oscar-winning actress has been named an honorary dame — the female version of a knight — by Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II.

Jolie, a United Nations special envoy, received the honor on Friday for her work combating sexual violence in war zones. Jolie, who won a supporting actress Academy Award in 2000 for “Girl, Interrupted,” has spoken of scaling back her movie roles to focus on humanitarian work. She said that “to receive an honor related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to.”

Because she is not a British or Commonwealth citizen, Jolie won’t be entitled to use the title “dame” before her name. Previous U.S recipients of honorary knighthoods include director Steven Spielberg, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and former President Ronald Reagan.

Jolie, who was in London this week to co-host an international summit on sexual violence, was among hundreds of people recognized in the queen’s annual Birthday Honors List for services to their community or national life.

Most of the honors go to people who are not in the limelight — from soldiers and civil servants to academics and entrepreneurs — but there is always a sprinkling of famous names.

Three-time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis was made a knight “for services to drama” and can now call himself Sir Daniel. The actor, who won Academy Awards for “My Left Foot,” ”There Will Be Blood” and “Lincoln,” said he was “entirely amazed and utterly delighted in equal measure.”There were damehoods for novelist Hilary Mantel, author of the prize-winning Tudor page-turners “Wolf Hall” and “Bring Up the Bodies,” and for fashion designer Zandra Rhodes.

Actress Maggie Smith, who plays the imperious Dowager Countess of Grantham on TV’s “Downton Abbey,” was made a Companion of Honor, an award limited to 65 people “of distinction.”

“Homeland” star Damian Lewis was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire, or OBE.

The British actor said he was “very surprised but very happy” with the honor.

“I decided to do the very un-British thing of accepting the compliment,” Lewis said.

OBEs also went to Beatles expert and author Hunter Davies, musician Talvin Singh, and John Simpson, longtime editor of the Oxford English Dictionary.

In the field of science, there was a knighthood for physicist Thomas Kibble, whose work contributed to the discovery of the Higgs boson — the so-called “God particle.”

Among those honored for charity work was the late Stephen Sutton, a teenager who raised 4 million pounds ($ 6.8 million) while battling terminal cancer. Sutton, who died in May at age 19, was named a Member of the Order of the British Empire, or MBE.

Sylvia Lancaster, who founded a campaign against hate crime after her daughter, Sophie, was attacked and killed by a gang of youths in 2007 because of her Goth appearance, received an OBE.

Recipients covered a wide range of achievements, from confectioner Chantal Coady, honored “for services to chocolate making,” to civil service debt manager Barry Cox — “for services to debt” — and Arthur Dean, president of the Dwarf Sports Association. He was recognized for services to people with restricted growth and to disabled sport.

Britain’s honors are bestowed by the monarch, but recipients are selected by committees of civil servants from nominations made by the government and the public.

In descending order, the honors are knighthoods; Commander of the Order of the British Empire or CBE; OBE; and MBE. Knights are addressed as “sir” or “dame.” Recipients of the other honors have no title, but can put the letters after their names.
