A couple of months ago, when it was revealed that one of the hottest new music acts was a platinum blonde.
The “Glamour Girl” singer was crowned the 2017 “Gemma Award” for the “Best Male Female Artist” and was the only woman to ever win it, with the likes of Taylor Swift, Adele, Beyoncé and Selena Gomez.
But the blonde bombshell wasn’t just a hit.
It was also a bona fide superstar.
She has been a major player in the pop music landscape for years.

It’s because she’s blonde, and the beauty industry is notoriously a male dominated space.
So when she was crowned “Gemema Award 2017”, it was a shock for the industry.
But now, platinum blonde bombshells are a thing of the past, and women are becoming more prominent in the industry as the industry continues to shift towards a female-friendly climate.
And thanks to the rise of women in the entertainment industry, the industry’s stars are now more represented on TV.
It’s no surprise that the “platinum blonde” is becoming a household name, but it was once a very rare sight.
“Gems” actress Mariah Carey and the “Dancing with the Stars” star Dwayne Johnson were both crowned platinum blonde in the mid-90s, while Rihanna and Selina Gomez were both awarded it at the end of 2015.
The Golden Girls star and “Game of Thrones” star Natalie Portman have both won it over the years, while Kim Kardashian West was a member of the first group to win it in 2007.
“Platinum blonde is a bit of a misnomer,” says Nicole, the co-founder of online music store “Platinum Idol”.
“Plenty of other actresses have won the award and they’re all very successful, but the only women we really see winning the award are the ones that are blonde.
They’re the ones with blonde hair.”
It’s a phenomenon that’s made the platinum blonde a household word, and one that’s helped to redefine the beauty game.
“In the ’90s and early ’00s, when there were no white girls winning awards, we had a lot of young black girls competing and winning,” says Mariah, who’s a fan of platinum blonde stars like Taylor Swift.
“It was really exciting, but I think it’s changed a bit in the last 10 years.
Now it’s about diversity and a lot more girls are doing it.”
Mariah says that when she first started seeing blonde stars on TV, they were often the ones who looked “white”.
“It’s not like you have to look white to be a platinum blond, but a lot were blonde.
Now, there are more blonde women.”
It also meant that the industry wasn’t always looking to highlight the beauty of blonde girls, but to highlight its male stars, says Nicole.
“In the old days, it was about the male stars and the platinum blondes, and not about the black and brown girls, and that was just because of the beauty standards.”
So, what does it mean to be blonde?
It’s about the colour, and how it’s perceived by people, Nicole says.
“If a blonde is black, it’s not going to be taken as a compliment.
It can’t be a compliment, because that means the black person is looking down on the blonde.”
And because it’s a male-dominated industry, it can also lead to stereotypes, like the blonde being lazy, or not being able to be professional.
“I think there’s a lot to be said for that,” says Nita, a platinum-blonde music business owner.
“There are some really good, successful female celebrities who are blonde and that’s a good thing.”
Nita, who has worked with some of the best platinum-haired musicians in the world, says that women can also be a “superstar” when it comes to their looks.
“They can do a really good job, they can look good and they have the right kind of attitude,” she says.
And the industry is becoming more inclusive, with a number of Hollywood stars embracing the trend.
“We don’t have to do the white girl thing, we can look like everyone else,” says the “Saturday Night Live” star Tina Fey.
“When you go on stage, you’re going to look like everybody else,” adds the “SNL” star Amy Poehler.
But as women get more involved in the beauty world, it has led to backlash, with critics accusing some of Hollywood of perpetuating the “golden
