The surprising history of the bold red lip

  The surprising history of the bold red lip Red lipstick is without a doubt one of the most iconic looks in makeup. From Marilyn Monroe's famous ruby pout to Kylie Jenner's beauty market takeover, making a bold statement with lip color is a fashion trend rooted in history. But it hasn't always been sex appeal and good looks. The history of red lipstick is a complex tale of power, rebellion, and tragedy. The simple act we take for granted today was once wildly offensive and even punishable by death. Based on information from In The Know, check out the timeline of the bold red lip.

  Dripping wet dramas: movies with iconic rain scenes Rain can be a nuisance. Wet weather can dampen any occasion, and when the heavens open all you can do is pop open umbrellas or dash indoors. But there's no denying a heavy downpour can work wonders in cinema, which is why filmmakers often rely upon a deluge to create heightened drama, a sense of foreboding, and impending disaster. Click through and take a look at these soaking wet movie stars.

J Balvin's return to the stage promises to be "fiery," performing "Nivel de Perrero" with Ryan Castro. The Colombian superstar has his sights set on becoming the most awarded Latin artist in VMAs history, should he take home his sixth Moon Person in the Best Latin category for "In Da Getto" with Skrillex this year.

Last but not least, Panic! returns to the VMAs for the first time since 2018 to world premiere their new single, "Middle of a Breakup." The nine-times nominated band is also up for Alternative Video.

Last week, MTV announced the complete list of nominees for its 2022 show, which pegs Jack Harlow, Kendrick Lamar and Lil Nas X in the lead with seven nominations a piece, while 2021 MTV VMAs host, Doja Cat, and Harry Styles aren't far behind, each scoring six nominations for their music magic.
