Earlier this month, Solange hinted at plans to team up with Puma.

Even though Adidas has been dominating the athletic wear collab game this year—working with everyone from Kanye to Pharrell and Rita Ora—it seems like Puma will be finishing 2014 strong. Shortly after a rumor spread that Rihanna may be teaming up with the sports brand, Solange, who’s just coming off the best week ever, took to Instagram to announce she has another two collaborations with them on the way.

Officer Darren Wilson addressed whether his run in law enforcement may have come to a sudden end in light of the Brown shooting this week.

“I’m not sure it’s possible. I mean, you think they would accept me? You think it’d be safe for me?” Wilson asked. He said his notoriety could also put his fellow officers in jeopardy. “Can I put them in that situation?” he asked. Wilson said a final decision on returning to the force has not been made.

Music stars Pharrell, Killer Mike and Big K.R.I.T. revealed how upset they were over Officer Wilson not being charged for the shooting a few days ago.
