Yesterday I posted pics of troubled singer chris brown wearing a hawt pair of Winter boots. Allen over at Upscale Hype identified the boots as Dolce & Gabbana leather heavy duty boots (approx. $688). These black heavy duty boots are from the Fall/Winter 2010 Collection and feature lace fastening with a round cap toe.
Pop legend Janet Jackson appeared on BET’s 106 & Park yesterday to promote Tyler Perry’s new movie ‘Colored Girls’. Janet talks about a new book she has coming out in which she admits having low self esteem. She also talks about being an early developer and having her breasts bound on ‘Good Times’ because she was too mature looking for an 11-year-old.
The audience went crazy when Janet walked out wearing her favorite butt pads. Co-host Terrence J couldn’t contain his excitement. Too bad Janet still can’t act to save her life. And don’t you wish Janet could be genuine and drop that fake voice and just be herself?
In case you missed it: the entire cast of the classic 60s musical ‘The Sound of Music’ reunited for the first time in 45 years on Oprah yesterday.
The reason the cast never reunited before was due to the narcissism of actor Christopher Plummer who famously hated on the movie and assumed it was great only because he was in it.
Plummer, 80, stubbornly refused to reunite with the cast in 45 years. So it’s a testament to the respect that Oprah commands that she was able to convince him to participate.
You couldn’t be a child growing up in London and not be familiar this movie. We learned the words to every song in school a few years after the movie came out. ‘The Sound of Music’ earned 5 Oscar Awards and a slew of Oscar nominations.
‘The Sound of Music’ merged the beautiful sounds of the Von Trapp children singers (a real family) with the horrors of Hitler’s World War II. It remains the greatest musical ever.
Rapper Jay Z was sported arriving at London’s Heathrow airport in London, England today where he’s promoting his new book “Decoded”. The book was written 2 years ago by former VIBE magazine writer Dream Hampton. It’s about his life and the lyrics in his rap songs translated through footnotes, poetry and prose.
Jay Z teamed up with Bing.com search engine to formulate an ingenious marketing plan disguised as a scavenger hunt. They took all 300+ pages of his book and plastered them on common items all over NYC, such as bus benches, pool tables and walls. Fans who log onto Bing are given clues to the locations of the pages. So far, 87 pages of Jay’s book have been found. The book is set for release on November 16.
Rihanna signed copies of her coffee table photo book “Rihanna: Rihanna” at Barnes & Noble in NYC yesterday. The book contains photos taken by a photographer who accompanied the pop star on tour last year.
Rap mogul Ludacris hugged an exciting fan while signing bottles of his “Conjure Cognac” at a Wine and Sprits Store in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania yesterday.
Earlier this month, teen singing sensation Justin Bieber announced his new line of nail polish — presumably for girls. And now he’s on the cover of a Brazilian magazine sporting eyeliner and pink lip gloss.
Naturally, Bieber’s feverishly loyal Stans are up in arms accusing the editors of TodaTeen Star magazine of Photoshopping Justin’s picture. But the magazine denies airbrushing the Bieb’s face to make him look more effeminate.
The Internet is buzzing about the gay guy in rapper Nicki Minaj’s new music video for “Right Thru Me”. His name is Willi Monfret and he’s a French model.
I have nothing else to say about this guy or Nicki’s video since I’m not a fan of hers. But I’m posting these pics of Willi since you ladies seem to prefer men who look like they’re light on their toes.
Pop star Rihanna got back into the same outfit to shoot more scenes for the “Whats My Name” video with her BFF, rapper Drake in Lower Manhattan yesterday. Obviously the director wasn’t happy with the scenes from the first shoot earlier this month.
