Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have already blended their families, so blending their brands is of course the next logical step. They started with a line of sunglasses (alongside Quay) and have now moved on to partnering with a company that creates frozen meals, available at Walmart. It’s certainly mass market, but as of today, neither have mentioned it on their main social feed. Meal services are tricky – just ask Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Do you know anyone who uses 22 Days Nutrition? Next steps for JLo and ARod could be anything: a unisex fragrance, a fitness regimen (he is already working with TruFusion out of Vegas), a line of cream sweaters because that is their preferred palette.

The New York Times has anointed Tracee Ellis Ross “The Real Queen of Wellness” not because she has a lifestyle brand (her hair care line, Pattern, just launched), but because she’s embodying what they call a new kind of self-care that goes beyond big business. You don’t get the idea that Tracee is running her life like an “aspirational” business brand or actively trying to influence, which is what makes her so refreshing.
If you follow Tracee, you know she’s like a girlfriend who always tries the newest stuff (i.e.: blue ball face rollers) and is ready to give you a detailed rundown on whether or not it works. She isn’t selling to a passive audience. Instead, there’s a genuine enthusiasm to what she does, whether it’s a new workout or her signature pink outfits or a particularly amazing cat eye, that comes from simply wanting to share.
If you thought Doctor Doolittle couldn’t look any worse, here’s RDJ in an NFL promo. It’s painful.
