Singer/songwriter Ne-Yo, 31, was seen shopping in the beautiful South of France over the weekend. Yes, he's wearing black socks with sandals. It must be a French thing.
Rapper Bow Wow, 24, performed during the Sydney Supafest Music Festival at ANZ Stadium in Sydney, Australia yesterday. Word is that Bow Wow signed a TV deal with director Ice Cube to develop a TV series based on the somewhat hit movie 'Lottery Ticket.' Good for Bow Wow. He's successfully finding ways to stay relevant.
Kim Kardashian, 30, was seen outside her home filming scenes for the upcoming season of her reality series "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" today in W. Hollywood.
Former Danity Kane member and MTV 'Making The Band' alum, Aubrey O'Day, 27, posed on the red carpet at Logo's "New Now Next" Awards. That's a beautiful dress she's wearing. After the group was dissolved, Aubrey's stalled career was revived by a new reality TV series that she stars in.
American Idol runner up Adam Lambert, 29, posed with a transvestite lookalike at Logo's "New Now Next" Awards at The Avalon Nightclub in Hollywood, Ca today. I think I see Rihanna in the background.
Cartoon rapper Nicki Minaj continues to build her bubble gum brand by teaming with Casio to roll out the company's new Tryx camera in Times Square and at Best Buy in NYC yesterday. Nicki, 28, wore her trademark bouffant afro puff wig and a skin tight body suit over her industrial size butt pads.
The flip video camera is neon pink and features a hollow flip handle that you can hang on your wrist. Nicki will be honored as NARM’s Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the 2011 NARM Awards dinner in LA in May. Don't ever think mediocracy isn't rewarded.
Aging fashionista Karl Lagerfeld, 77, unveiled his new designs for Diet Coke bottles yesterday. The pink and black Diet Coke bottles are the 2nd collection bearing Karl's name. The new Diet Coke Karl bottles go on sale soon.
Elle magazine gave rapper Nicki Minaj the Beyonce treatment by lightening her skin and eliminating her unsightly butt pads for a photo shoot. If you frequent the strip clubs, then you know that white men are put off by grossly exaggerated, artificial butts on black girls. So when the Elle editors asked Nicki if she could pose without her trademark butt pads, she happily obliged.
The cartoonish 28-year-old MC exploded onto the scene four years ago when she appeared in a viral YouTube video claiming to be rapper Remy Ma's stud lover. Later she signed with Lil Wayne's Young Money Records and released her platinum-selling album, Pink Friday, which solidified her position as the reigning female MC -- for now.
'Celebrity Apprentice' star Nene Leakes and her son Brent, 12, took a wild ride on the back of a mini Hummer in Miami, Florida yesterday. NeNe was later spotted sitting poolside with her Yorkie pup. The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star and her youngest son are vacationing in Miami. She also has another son, Brice, who is 21.
Comedian and radio host Steve Harvey, 54, danced onstage with his lovely wife Marjorie Harvey during his 2nd annual Steve Harvey Foundation Gala at Cipriani's on Wall Street in NYC yesterday (April 4).

'Basketball Wives' stars Jennifer Williams, 34, and Evelyn Lozada, 41, hosted Gold Room Thursdays last night in Atlanta. 'The Game' stars, Wendy Raquel Robinson (Tasha Mack) and Hosea Chanchez (Malik) also showed up to party with the industry elite.
Jennifer wore Christian Louboutin's and a cobalt blue dress that caught everyone's attention.
Evelyn Lozada wasn't happy that Jennifer seemed to be getting all the attention last night
The Game's Wendy Raquel Robinson (Tasha) and Hosea Chanchez (Malik)
R&B singer Keri Hilson wore head to toe GUESS to attend PAPER Magazine’s Beautiful People Party, held at the Standard Hotel in Los Angeles yesterday. Keri's haters normally go in on her blonde weave, so she decided to switch it up a little and give them a head full of bouncing platinum curls. Keri's style is growing on me!
"Celebrity Apprentice" and "Real Housewife of Atlanta" star Nene Leakes tried out her new iPad 2 while sitting at poolside in Miami, Florida yesterday. She was wearing a loud neon green string bikini that got everyone's attention.
Remember when Kanye West's former beard Amber Rose was sexy and hawt? Now she looks like Kanye's sloppy seconds. She at least had a sense of style when she was with Kanye. That's because she could afford the best stylists, including Kanye himself. Now she walks into stores such as Bebe and she's styled on the spot by whoever is working the cash register. I'm not making that up. Amber recently took to her Twitter page to dismiss rumors that she's slept with half of the music industry. "I have never slept with Fabolous, Drake or Chris Brown," she duly noted. Interestingly enough, Amber didn't mention any of the female celebrities that she's been with.
Despite the rumors of infidelity, Wendy Williams and her husband Kevin seemed happy as they arrived at the Helmsley Park Lane hotel to celebrate Aretha Franklin's 69th birthday in New York City last night (Mar 26).
Narcissist Wyclef Jean hosted a party and live performance at Haze Nightclub located inside Aria Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV last night. Wyclef posed with his lovely wife Marie Claudinette. He wore a replica of the Haitian flag on his right wrist where he claims he suffered a gunshot wound.
Former "America's Top Model" contestant Eva Marcille was spotted at The Cotton Club in Los Angeles for R&B Live. According to Allen over at Upscale Hype fashion blog, she was wearing Brian Lichtenberg Black Angular Patchwork Sliver Glitter leggings ($218), which are a combination of glitter, sheer hosiery and fishnet pieces. She was also rocking pair of Gucci “Kills” Peep Toe Platform Booties ($990). Notice the white couple in the background? That is a rare sight in Atlanta's urban nightclubs. For a Metropolis with a population of 6 million that passes itself off as a "City of courageous firsts" -- Atlanta's nightclubs are still segregated. Whites and blacks do not party together in Atlanta where racist attitudes remain stuck in the 50's.
Rev. Run's daughter Angela Simmons attended the Knicks game in New York City on Friday (Mar 25). Angela, who made millions off of her Pastry shoe line, wore a modern day version of the 1920s fringe flapper dress. She accessorized the dress with a black cropped leather jacket, Christian Louboutin pumps and a Chanel tote.
"Celebrity Apprentice" cast member Star Jones and Kim Kardashian's mom, Kris Jenner, both have the same gaudy taste in faux Chinchilla fur. Miss Jones was spotted leaving the Helmsley Park Lane hotel after celebrating Aretha Franklin's 69th birthday in New York City on Saturday (Mar 26).
Rapper Da Brat was spotted out & about shopping in Atlanta with her beautiful mom, Nadine. As you know, Brat was recently released from a Georgia prison where she served 3 years for an assault conviction. Since then she's been busy writing songs and recording music in her home studio.
Thanks to my inside source for sending these exclusive pics for my readers! I'm told Da Brat is on Twitter now.

Remember when Solange Knowles promoted her new line of Hip Hop toys called Baby Jamz, which she said were inspired by her then 4-year-old son, Juelz?
Well, now she's releasing a t-shirt line also inspired by the budding 6-year-old tycoon. Solange says that when Juelz heard about the earthquake in Japan, he was so moved that he was inspired to create a line of t-shirts to raise money for relief efforts...
Reality TV stars, Taylor Armstrong, left, and NeNe Leakes, 44, headed out to dinner at BOA Steakhouse in LA last night. Not many people know that NeNe was once cited for running a fake foundation for victims of domestic abuse in 2009. NeNe's Twisted Hearts Foundation was allegedly involved in money laundering activities. When NeNe failed to file the appropriate paperwork with the state, the foundation's business license was dissolved.
Now that legendary soul singer Aretha Franklin has lost a gazillion pounds, I'm sure she feels better than she's ever felt in years. Miss Franklin, who turned 69 today, sat courtside with former NBA star Patrick Ewing and NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg (not pictured) to watch the NY Knicks at Madison Square Garden in New York City yesterday.
Talk Diva Wendy Williams, 46, was seen on the set of "Dancing With the Stars" studio in West Hollywood earlier this week. Wendy issued a challenge of sorts to disturbed singer Chris Brown. Earlier today she tweeted, "CHRIS BRWN I LUV U TOO. hot album but get help young man. c u @ #DWTS." I'm sure she's hoping he will do something crazy since we know he has issues with black women.
As he flew through the air with the greatest of ease, kids everywhere pointed skyward and asked "Who is that man in the blue Superman tights?"
After blowing away the #1 seed Duke Blue Devils, 93-77, during the 2011 NCAA men's basketball tournament last night, Lamont "Mo Mo" Jones is well on his way to becoming a household name. All he has to do is help his team (Arizona Wildcats) defeat 3rd seeded UConn tomorrow, and soon enough ball players everywhere -- from high school to the NBA -- will pay homage by wearing his tights.
Earlier this week I posted exclusive pics from the set of Swizz Beatz’ new music video for "Coolin" featuring rapper Eve and Sean "Diddy" Combs' 12-year-old son, Christian. One of the other kids in the video is the 11-year-old son of a former male supermodel. Can you guess who the former male supermodel that many of us assumed was Teh Ghey is? No cheating!
Rapper Wiz Khalifa, who makes no secret of his love for kush, covers the smoldering April/May 2011 issue of Complex magazine with actor Danny McBride. RapRadar provides us with this particularly disturbing portrait of lovebirds Wiz and professional beard, Amber Rose.
I had my suspicions about Mr. Shaunie O'Neal but they weren't confirmed until I spotted this cover on that other blog:
On Basketball Wives
“Every season we need to do something different…whether it’s someone leaving [or] someone coming, but I can’t tell you.[...]I didn’t put myself out there and on TV just to be on a reality show. I have a plan and a vision, and as it continues to grow, my vision and my plan get bigger. It’s to build a legacy for my kids and…[to] have something that I’m proud of, outside of being mommy. It’s just [about] trying to be smart. That window is cracked, and I’m trying to open it all the way.”
On Leaving a Legacy For Her Children
“They’re definitely [the] motivation to continue to do what I do. I want them to be proud of me, and [I want to] leave them something. Ours is a generation where our parents were not able to leave us
Our good friend Ciara was spotted strolling in Beverly Hills near her home today. She looked hawt in an oversized white t-shirt printed with huge red lips, and cut off jeans. Nice!
What? Me? Worry?
Socialite LaLa Vazquez was seen leaving Cafe Entourage in Hollywood last night. As you know, one of her husband's former groupies has come forward to talk about her fling with Carmelo Anthony which resulted in his secret love child. So far, Lala has not commented on her Twitter page.
Former stripper E-V-E was spotted leaving Koi restaurant in LA last night. Her style game is always on point!
According to Black Celeb Kids, Lauryn Hill's daughter, Selah Marley, is featured in the latest issue of Teen Vogue magazine. Dad is Rohan Marley, son of reggae great, Bob Marley.
In the issue, the 12-year-old budding star talks about wanting to follow in her parent’s musical footsteps. She tells the magazine, “Singing is my favorite thing to do. One day I hope to get signed to a record label.” Besides looking up to her famous parents Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley, Selah admits that she is a big fan of singer Justin Bieber. “I am a huge fan of Justin’s. I love his personality and his looks just take the cake!”
Hill, an earth sista who prefers to wear her hair natural in order to be closer to God, has instilled the same beliefs in her children. Selah steers clear of weave extensions and lacefronts. Instead, she wears her natural, unprocessed, healthy hair past her shoulders.
Moms, please show these pics to your young daughters so they can see that natural hair is more beautiful than any manufactured weave or lacefront. Your daughter's edges will thank you later.
Jennifer Williams, the 30-something star of TV's Basketball Wives, recently sat down with "Style Stalker TV" to discuss her personal style, meeting Rafer Alston's other woman and finalizing her divorce from former NBA player Eric Williams. Jennifer, who comes across on TV as very self-assured and confident, doesn't seem to have much luck with men. Alston, who currently plays pro ball in China, is known for his cheating ways, and his lengthy criminal record.
Pop singer Ke$ha's sexy bikini pics caused an uproar when they surfaced online yesterday. You can't tell Ke$ha she isn't fine. Well, you can tell her but she won't believe you. The last time the 24-year-old revealed her sexy bod on a beach, her fans screamed "PHOTOSHOP!"
Ke$ha shows how she keeps her malleable curves in tip top shape!
Speaking of top shape: if you are an aging supermodel (or an aging anything) allow Verushcka to give you some hope for your future. The German model, actress, and artist who was extremely popular during the 60s, is still modeling for the italian label OVS - Oviesse. She is 71.
They say everything old is new again, but multi-millionaire actress Mary-Kate Olsen takes those words literally. Mary-Kate raided her grandmother's closet for the fashionable rags she wore while strolling near her home in NYC yesterday. She is 24.
Judging by these pics, 10-year-old singer Willow Smith doesn't have much hair to whip. The pre-teen sensation took down her long braid extensions to allow her real hair to breathe. Judging from her ends, it looks like she could use a good cut and some leave-in conditioner. She's such a stylish kid. LOVE her Chanel shoes! I had no idea those shoes came in kiddie sizes. Willow was seen shopping with her nanny and several burly bodyguards at Hamleys Toy Store in London, England last night. She's in Europe on tour with her pal Justin Bieber and her brother, Jaden.
Justin Bieber, 16, was seen molesting his wax figure at Madame Tussaud's wax museum yesterday in London. There is no doubt that Justin is in love with himself. In some healthy individuals, that level of self-love is cathartic. But in Justin Bieber, it shows up as extreme arrogance. Hopefully he's working on his famous attitude.
R&B singer Jarvis was among the local celebs who came out to support troubled singer Chris Brown at his V-103 sponsored listening party in Atlanta yesterday. Early reviews of his fourth studio album, F.A.M.E., are lukewarm at best. The 21-year-old ex-con has tried everything to promote the CD, from leaking nude pics of himself to dying his hair canary blonde. He'd better hope he doesn't do Soulja Boy numbers.
Actress Paula Patton, 34, arrived back in Vancouver BC today to complete filming her next movie, 'Mission Impossible 4 - Ghost Protocol'. The actress was among other celebrities fleeing Vancouver after a tsunami warning was issued for the area last week. Patton looked pale and thin when she was spotted carrying her own Louis Vuitton luggage and wearing Chanel hightops. Photo: Splash News Online
Troubled singer Chris Brown, 21, was spotted flying out of LAX yesterday, one day after embarrassing pictures of him allegedly smoking weed surfaced on the Internets. I'm told his attorneys are scrambling to send out cease & desist emails to X17Online.com and other blogs, including Bossip.com and Mediatakeout -- all of whom have since snatched the pics down.
But here at Sandrarose.com, I don't believe in censorship in any form. Since Brown was bold enough to (allegedly) smoke weed in public -- while driving, and while still on probation -- then this blogger sees no problem in leaving the pictures up. Not that he will learn his lesson from this or anything smart like that, but maybe Brown will at least think about his surroundings before he lights up next time.
Chanita Foster of TV's "Football Wives" tweeted this pic on her Twitter page moments after the LA Lakers defeated our Atlanta Hawks 101-87 at Philips Arena last night. But the highlight of the game was the sight of R&B Diva Monica, Chanita and her sexy friend, Kimsha Artest (wife of Ron Artest), sitting at courtside with all the other celebrities.
Kimsha's Twitter page is @Msmish37Laker, but her tweets are protected. If you want to follow her you will have to be very creative, or lucky. I requested to follow her but I struck out.
Monica tweeted this pic of her son, Lil Rocko, 5, and Desean Jackson, 24, of the Philadelphia Eagles. Isn't it uncanny how much Desean resembles Mo's husband, Lakers guard Shannon Jackson?
Musicians Kanye West and Katy Perry were among the well-heeled celebrities sitting front and center at the Jean-Charles Castelbajac Fall Winter 2011 2012 fashion show in Paris earlier today. I wish I was rich (and not afraid to fly) so I could jet around the world attending fashion shows at my leisure. It must be nice!
Reality TV stars NeNe Leakes, left, and Hope Hope Dworaczyk (2010 Playmate of the Year), gave former rapper Lil Jon a lift at the "Celebrity Apprentice" Premiere Viewing Party at BLUSH Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas in Las Vegas yesterday.
"Football Wives" star Chanita Foster was also in attendance looking fabulous in Gucci from head to toe. See what a difference a new grade of weave makes?
Former rappers Lil Jon, left, and Flavor Flav bonded at the viewing party last night.
Rapper Young Jeezy, left, posed with Def Jam exec Bu Thiam at the Velvet Room in Tucker, Georgia last night.
Here's a recent photo of rapper Da Brat, center, posing with her "sister" LisaRaye, right, and LisaRaye's lovely daughter Kai outside Da Brat's home this past weekend. As you know, Da Brat, 36, is on house arrest following her recent release from prison where she served 3 years for assaulting a cocktail waitress at Jermaine Dupri's now defunct Studio 72 nightclub in Decatur. If you recall, I asked my inside source to pass on a message to Da Brat asking her to call me. My source responded to my inquiry, saying, and I quote: "To be honest, you're not one of her favorite people..."
I wonder why?
Besties Ciara, La La Vazquez and her son Kiyan Anthony attended the Cleveland Cavaliers vs New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden on Friday, Mar. 4. After years of being dragged, Ciara is now a friend of the blog. She gets all due respect, as does all of our friends. The Cavaliers beat Lala's husband, Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks for the third straight time this season.
Every once in a while LeBron James' beautiful fiancee Savannah Brinson puts her haters in check by revealing just a little bit of her glamorous side. Don't hurt 'em Savannah! You can follow Savannah on her Twitter page.
Singer Chris Brown, 21, showed terrible form as he attempted a slam dunk during the E League Media Day basketball game sponsored by New Era Cap on Sunday (Mar. 6) in Santa Monica, CA. Speaking of terrible form, industry insiders are still scratching their heads wondering why Brown leaked a photo of his pathetic peen just to boost album sales. How pitiful does a man (or in this case, a boy) have to be to disrespect his entire fan base for his own selfish needs? Brown, who dyed his hair blond last week, appeared completely naked in the photo that was leaked to the online video streaming site, Worldstar Hip Hop. Brown's hair was blond in the photo, yet the caption stated an "old girlfriend" of Brown's leaked the graphic image. Brown's current girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, tweeted a one word response to the hoopla surrounding the leaked peen photo: "Wow."
Drake, 24, hosted the Chateau Nightclub & Gardens Grand opening party on Saturday night in Las Vegas. Why is he growing his hair out just because Jay Z is growing his out? Can these rappers do anything on their own?
Rapper Fabolous, 33, was one of the celebs at courtside watching the New York Knicks hand the Atlanta Hawks another win at Philips Arena yesterday. The Hawks can't buy a win against the blazing Knicks, despite the fact that Carmelo and his teammate Chauncey Billups partied the night before at the one year anniversary of Wet Willies in Atlanta on Saturday, Mar. 5.
Former America's Top Model contestant Toccara Jones attended the New York Knicks vs. Atlanta Hawks basketball game at Philips Arena yesterday.
NBA star Carmelo Anthony attended the NBA All-Star Screening of “On the Shoulders Of Giants” in Los Angeles. He was wearing a Gucci striped long sleeve cardigan ($1,015). It features green and white stripes, a gucci crest at the chest, and front slit pockets. Rapper Fabolous hosted parties for Alex Gidewon (AG Entertainment) over the weekend at Compound and Velvet Room in Atlanta. Fab was wearing the same Gucci cardigan at the Compound on Saturday night. Who wore it worse?
Fabolous, 33, is such a pretty thug. I can see why the girls go gaga over him. His style and personal taste in clothes is always impeccable. I love the way he gets his grown man on while wearing his pants pulled up.
I LOVE to see a well-dressed man! You don't have to be ballin' out of control to put together a fresh outfit that doesn't insult the sensibilities of 90% of the general public. All it takes is a basic knowledge of fashion and a higher level of class than the average black man.
Trey Songz was spotted leaving a Zuma restaurant in London wearing a grey Burberry Prorsum trench coat ($1,994) and rocking a pair of slim bootcut RRL denim jeans ($365-$395). The Burberry trench features epaulettes at the shoulders, and belting at the waist and cuffs.
Singer Miguel arrived for the taping of the BET’s 2011 Rip the Runway in New York City sporting a pair of Black Scale “Shades of Black” sunglasses and a pair of high top Android Homme Propulsion sneakers ($220). These grey leather sneakers feature a lace up front, two velcro front straps, with a black suede ribbed ankle, and side eyelet vents on a white rubber sole.
