First Kim Kardashian, then Amber Rose, followed by Blac Chyna and now, jumping on board the emoji craze, reggae legend Ziggy Marley.
On Thursday morning, Marley officially released a reggae-themed emoji line titled Zigg Emojis.
The artist partnered up with EmojiFame to develop “two series of the popular communication icons inspired by and reflective of the reggae culture and lifestyle, as well as Ziggy’s own particular interests.”
The singer said in a statement, “Emojis offer a way to communicate without words. I am very blessed to introduce my own way of expression which I have personally created along with Emoji Fame. I know everyone will enjoy using these emojis as much as I will. One love.”
The exciting new line includes a series of “symbolic nods to Jamaica, soccer and music.” Our guess is that the line also includes some images of ganja as well.
“While working on these emojis, we strove to harness the infectious positivity that Ziggy Marley brings to the world via his music,” Gavin Rhodes, co-founder of Emoji Fame said. “Fans can now share that energy in emoji form with Ziggy’s Rasta Mojis.”
This is just one of several projects the star has recently launched. Back in October, Marley released his Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook: Delicious Meals Made With Whole, Organic Ingredients from the Marley Kitchen.
TimesUp! Tracee Ellis Ross Wants More Money For ‘Blackish’
Tracee Ellis Ross is reportedly the latest star tackling gender wage gap in Hollywood head on.
As the #MeTooMovement continues to stay relevant around the world and the TimesUp campaign continues to grow, women are starting to speak out about making less money than their male co-stars.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ross makes significantly less money than her black-ish co-star, Anthony Anderson, and now is fighting for equal pay. Per the report, “Ellis Ross feels that if she isn’t brought up to Anderson’s level, she may opt to appear in fewer episodes to make up the disparity by guesting on another show.”
A source at ABC also suggested that a “new deal will significantly increase her compensation and cautioned that Anderson and Ellis Ross’ roles aren’t equal given that he has been attached to Black-ish from the start and is an executive producer.”
SIDE NOTE: That was also the argument when E! News host, Catt Sadler stepped down due to making less than Jason Kennedy. At the time, the network claimed Jason had other duties, which also included his contributions to the Today show.
Ross has yet to comment on the report, but if she does take a step back, this means the show will be more male dominated; after all, Zoe, played by Yara Shahidi, is now in college and has her own spinoff show, Grownish.
