Over the weekend, we learned that Essence magazine’s Constance C.R. White, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, is leaving the women’s publication. Also leaving Essence are Corynne L. Corbett, the magazine’s beauty editor, and Greg Monfries, the magazine’s creative director. Madame Noire reports that Time Inc, which owns Essence, is eliminated 500 jobs (yikes). We wish Constance and Essence the best.
And in other news, we sorta saw this next big tour coming. Rumor has it, Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z will launch a 10-city stadium tour together. This comes as no surprise, as fans loved seeing the two perform together Super Bowl weekend and during the GRAMMYs. While on the GRAMMY red carpet, Justin hinted during an interview:
“We’re definitely going to go on tour . . . I don’t know how much I should say . . . It’s going to be a lot of fun, I know that.”
Page Six suggests that the ‘we’ is referring to, is Jay-Z. We shall see! But would you go to a Justin Timberlake-Jay-Z show?
