While in New York I got the opportunity to sit down with one of my favorite fashion bloggers. Her name is Jinna Yang, and she is the mastermind behind Grease & Glamour...
I wrote the piece after listening in on a press call with Jon Bon Jovi. It is titled "Want To Help Homeless Vets? There’s An App For That… Just Ask Jon Bon Jovi," and it is about Project Reach, a contest that Bon Jovi has created with the White House. Here is the first bit...
Chris Brown had not one, but TWO performances at the Grammy’s, and if that wasn’t enough, he also was confirmed to have attended RIHANNA’S, yes, the girl who’s ass he BEAT, 24th birthday party! What is going on in this world?! Didn’t she have a restraining order against him at some point?
It was hard for me to even watch Chris Brown perform, let alone watch all the people (including girls) screaming and cheering him on in the crowd. What he did was, I think, unforgiveable, and for the Grammy’s to accept him back and feature him like that was rather shocking. Like really? Two performances? One would have been a little bit more acceptable, but was two really necessary? Wife beaters should NOT be celebrated.
In addition, I heard from several news sources that Chris Brown was also partying it up this week at Rihanna’s birthday party, however, I did not believe it to be true. That was until I saw this exclusive from Clevver News with evidence confirming the story as well as other details about Rihanna’s soiree…
I don’t know what she is thinking even having him there but I can only hope she is smart enough not to let him into her life again. What do you think?
Beyonce and Jay-Z made the most respectable move in a generally disrespectful world of paparazzi and money-hungry photo-sellers. Rather than sell photos of their new baby girl, Blue Ivy, for millions (I can’t even imagine how much moola they would have gotten) of dollars, they created a blog on Tumblr to showcase the photos themselves. The page has a perfectly sweet and simple message at the top saying,
“We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives. The Carter Family”
Really nice considering I am sure they weren’t really respected? The paparazzi were probably tripping over each other in a mosh pit surrounding the Carter house in hopes of snapping that first lucky shot of the babe. The trio must have not left the house, or they are just extremely sneaky, for this kid not to have been photographed or assaulted by paparazzi yet.
However they did it, I am happy they did, because this is a beautiful way to ease this born celebrity quietly into the public.
Last night I finally got to see one of my good friends, Chris Baker, perform live! He lives in New York but he had his LA debut show at Molly Malones in West Hollywood last night, and let me tell you, he blew me away. I have only seen Chris perform in his music videos (see below), and they are no comparison to seeing him live. Don’t get me wrong, his music videos are amazing, but watching him live you can feel Chris’ stage presence demanding everyone in the audience’s attention with ease. He has the presence and engaging qualities of a natural star. But the best part is that you can tell how much he loves what he is doing. His passion really shines through and that’s what makes him a true artist. When he is performing his energy floods the room and you feel as though you are experiencing all that joy and happiness with him. Not to mention his voice is incredible, even his little serenade of Happy Birthday to one of his friends in the audience during the performance was heart melting.
Chris is like the more relatable male-version of Lady Gaga with his addictive electronic beats and edgy style. He rocked the stage last night in some incredible silver metallic Maison Martin Margiela sneakers, and a silver-studded black leather jacket. Oh and did I mention he went to Harvard?
Overall, I could not be more proud of and happy for Chris. He’s come such a long way. It was only a year or so ago that he was belting out songs and madly typing lyrics on his Blackberry when we were in Croatia together. Now he is performing on both coasts, has his EP out, as well as several music videos, and is more passionate and driven than ever. Go Baker!!
Watch out for Chris, he is definitely going to be a star of the music industry in the near future.

Of course, everyone knows that Beyonce gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and that her and Jay-Z decided on the unique name, Blue Ivy. But only shortly after the little prodigy’s birth, Jay-Z posted a song titled “Glory” onto his website. Although the song is about the joy of fatherhood, there are lyrics that reveal that having a child wasn’t so easy for himself and Beyonce.
“Last time, the miscarriage was so tragic. We was afraid you would disappear. But nah, baby, you magic.”
Check out the full song here
That is a very personal revelation coming from the couple who even hid the fact that they were in a relationship almost until they got married.
Could this have had something to do with the folding-belly incident Beyonce had? Was she trying to cover-up her miscarriage?
Maybe it was just her dress, or she has an abnormal amount of skin over her belly, at this point, who cares! Congratulations to the couple for creating what I am sure will be one of the cutest, most stylish, and talented baby celebritots. Can’t wait to see this little nugget’s face!
