The creative minds behind Heatherette [Richie Rich and Traver Rains] have hooked up with MAC to create a special line of cosmetics. Snap for the kids! For quality insurance the products were probably tested on 1,000 wee-wees before they made the cut, but I’m not complaining.
Star Trak artist and Heatherette muse Teyana Taylor hit the stage at the launch party for the line in New York City on Tuesday night. Guest also included: Vanessa + Angela Simmons, Nina Sky, the walking WTF that is Amanda Lepore and Julissa Bermudez.
So this is what the hype was all about? Well now . . .
Plain and simple, Teyana needs more people and ringtones for me to give my seal of approval. I’m almost tempted to call this fuckery, but I won’t since its Good Friday and I’m feeling Christ-like.
Don’t get me wrong, I think she has a magnetic personality and plenty of charm [not to mention she can dance her little ass off - - I youtubed her!]. Its just that I’m not sure if all of that translates well in the video. I blame Pharrell.
How did you get so happy?
Hard work. No longer living by anyone else’s demands. I’m grown, I’m evolved, I can accept all that comes with being an individual.
What comes with being an individual?
In my case, trust, faith, hope, optimism, courage, wisdom, enthusiasm, and pizzazz.
What do you do?
I lip-synch, but I’m more of an example, an icon in my own right, a muse. I want people to look at me and feel inspired, to feel hope, to smile. I want to surge positive energy in your body, confirm that you too can be yourself.
Does it happen that way?
Oh, sure. I get some “Wow, oh my goodness, what the hell, you look fantastic, holla brotha” when I’m walking down the street, but my favorite thing I ever got was, “I am just so glad you’re alive.” I’ve had so many people say that to me, and that’s what assists me on continuing my journey. I was put on this earth to be a bodhisattva, to just glow, emanate love, respect, peace, pizzazz. It’s powerful.
Find out who had these beautiful words of wisdom after the jump!
I can’t imagine PigPen pulling a child over to the side and saying “you’re future is so bright you’re going to need sunglasses, ya smell me?” but maybe he does care. More flicks from the 2nd Annual Entertainers 4 Education Alliance Stay In School Event below.

You can always expect a unique blend of eccentric characters to show up at Heatherette’s fashion show. Lil’ Marlon opened the show with a enthusiastic performance of “Lip Gloss” but it was porn queen Jenna Jameson who snatched the crowd’s attention with her gaunt appearance.
