Orange Is The New Black star Dascha Polanco made a huge splash during New York Fashion Week by showing up to events baring her sexy curves. Some even considered her clothing choices daring, but for Polanco, blending in and succumbing to industry standards isn’t in her vocabulary — Which is why this beauty was proud to land the cover of Urban Ink.

Polanco graces the cover of the magazine’s October issue, donning a fish scale-inspired ensemble while hiding behind what appears to be two light bulbs. The actress shared the cover of the mag on Instagram and opened up about the term “Urban” and how she finally realized it’s not a negative term, as suggested by society.

“Wanted to share my @inkmagazine cover, with this photoshoot there was a sense of freedom when doing this one,” she wrote. “Being Urban has been stigmatized as a negative. Not worthy enough inferior to communities. I have received feedback on the past as being too urban. And, I just did not understand.”

She continued, “I realize now that this Is a part of my culture –Urban is a lifestyle. Many now worship the urban style and want to obtaining via appropriation or any means necessary. #ismellgood #SheIsDash Ty to my stylist @dariusbaptist #Latina. #YESIHAVETATOOS.”

Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
