Jay-Z & Mary J. Blige Help Carol's Daughter Team Up With Disney's First Black Princess

With the introduction of its first African-American Princess, Tiana, Disney has teamed up with Carol’s Daughter to create a line of products to meet the needs of every princess-in-training around the world. The Magical Beauty Collection, a four piece bath and body line, is a celebration of Princess Tiana, hard work, multiethnic beauty and universal acceptance. Carol's Daughter--founded, owned, and promoted by YBF folks Lisa Price, Steve Stoute, Jay-Z, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Mary J Blige--is the official beauty product brand of Disney's The Princess & The Frog. Gotta love that. We reached out to CEO Steve Stoute about the historic partnership. And he tells TheYBF.com:
It took the team to pull it off and get this license. It could have gone to FRÉDÉRIC FEKKAI or someone else. It's a big deal. Products are being sold at Macy's, Sephora, and CarolsDaughter.com. This partnership is just so important. First black President, now our first black Princess. I have a 4 and a half year old daughter who now has a black princess she can love and think is beautiful. This is big.
More after the cut...

Founder Lisa Price says about the partnership:
“What’s important about this line is that the products are very effective, made with natural ingredients at the same level of integrity as all Carol’s Daughter products,” explains Price. “No more tears in the tub, no more ‘grown up’ conditioners to get the ‘kinks out.’ I can’t believe we’re here!” “This moment has been a long time coming, and I’m so honored to be a part of something with such significant social importance,” says Lisa Price. “I’m thrilled that young African-Americans everywhere will see the movie and see someone to identify with, someone to be proud of, and someone to emulate. Princess Tiana will tell African-American women, young and old, that they can be beautiful and successful by being themselves and working hard—a powerful message that can’t be underestimated.”
Can't wait till this movie comes out by the way. It's set to release this December.

Yardy: lieve that if this

Yardy: lieve that if this movie is a big hit, making tons of $$$$$$$, the studios will be falling all over themselves to make more because the only color they give a damn about is MONEY GREEN!! Look what happened to black shows on TV. Do YOU see (m)any on the major networks ? Growning up, Thursday and Saturday was filled with US, now, nada (The Brothers premiered on Fox last Friday and it was…..meh) Somewhere along the way the felt like we were not worthy of their target demographic. I don’t know how we are ever going to recapture TV of old, our ad dollars are just not being captured (even though we do spend a lot!!) So yeah, I am going to see the movie in the hopes that it will lead to better things. That makes sense! You are the ONLY person that made me see a good reason to support the movie besides it being about Black people. Thank you! I'm not so dead set against it....I may check it out. Though I still think that going to see it is accepting mediocrity. lol

Congrats to CD and it's also

Congrats to CD and it's also exciting that the Princess and the frog will be out soon. I know some on here are saying that the movie wasn't what they'd hoped, however it's definitely a good idea to go out and show support becuase if it does well at the box office more African-American animated and regular films will be made and we need more! I am dominican and I wished Latinos would support their people more. I know a lot of people dont like J.lo but she did the Hector Lavoe biopic and most everyone I know bought it bootlegged or refused to see it so now NO one will greenlight Hispanic themed movied unless the character is a maid or "sassy" so annoying! Anyhoo i know this is YBF not YLF lol but just wanted to share how i think its important to support movies to have more made :-)

nice: Nice!! I never knew

nice: Nice!! I never knew Steve stoute has a daughter. I thought he was gay. oops. pardon me. Girl He is such a jerk. Cocky SOB! I know he's a partner and I get conflicting feelings about purchasing but I do cuz Carol is a sweetheart! She is customer focused..he is sooo far from it!

once again its all a facade!

once again its all a facade! i want ya'll to take a look at the official pic art for the movie...How do they explain the necessity for the skull n bones on the hat of one of the characters!... anyway my point is...when CD's products just came out, it carried a better quality! as with everything...once it goes "mainstream"...quality goes out the door!... LADIES BEWARE OF THEIR HAIR PRODUCTS... all these folks are in co-hoots! all in the face of publicity...blk publicity - i guess *shrugs*

While I appreciate the whole

While I appreciate the whole "Disney's first Black Princess" and all, NEWS FLASH PEOPLE....chances are, judging from the previews, she's gonna be a frog most of the movie!!! After the frog convinces her to kiss him, it turns her to a frog and she spends most of the movie trying to find a way to break the spell to become a princess again. I will support the movie still because it sends something positive to our young Disney Princess lovers, but they always find a way to short change us.

Angeleyes: What you mean

Angeleyes: What you mean next time?? Don’t you know this is it?? They made it to appease Black people so they can quite those that asked for a Black princess I hear ya on the appeasing us part, BUT best believe that if this movie is a big hit, making tons of $$$$$$$, the studios will be falling all over themselves to make more because the only color they give a damn about is MONEY GREEN!! Look what happened to black shows on TV. Do YOU see (m)any on the major networks? Growning up, Thursday and Saturday was filled with US, now, nada (The Brothers premiered on Fox last Friday and it was.....meh) Somewhere along the way the felt like we were not worthy of their target demographic.

What are you doing together in your spare time?Beyonce: (laugh) I dont know if he is.Q: But I thought…Beyonce: (interrupts) Well, I love my nephew to death and he’s my everything.Q: Are you and Jay live togheter? omigosh, shut up--no one is thinking about these 2. and whatever magazine u got this interview out of--u either need mavis beacon to improve ur typing skills or that magazine is trash--this crap doesn't even make sense. girl bye!

never bought carol's daughter

never bought carol's daughter products but good look for her to jump on that wagon. also, i am taking my 2 daughters to see this movie because my oldest is too pressed to go, but she is her own lil princess--always playing dress up and stuff, so i don't mind. i wasn't really worried too much about the non-white prince, but more so the fact that after kissing the frog--SHE turns into a frog. WTH? WHEN has that ever happened? so they will be frogs the majority of the movie...THAT is what has me raising an eyebrow. so my daughter's princess, in the likes of her, is a damn frog? MMmkay!

We have a black prince for

We have a black prince for all the world to see, and that's Barack. Anyway, I am def getting this for the little princesses in my life but also for the little princes. Our little boys need to see black princesses because black women are just as precious, just as beautiful and just as graceful as any other women, though sometimes it seems that that very fact isn't believed to be true by a few black men. I don't want any of the lil men in my life to join that small number. THough I'm not going to leave it up to a movie alone to teach them that and we shouldn't leave it up to a disney movie to teach our young black princesses that there are true black princes all around them.
