New Video: "One Night Stand" - Keri Hilson ft. Chris Brown

Keri Hilson and Chris Brown released a new video for their single "One Night Stand".

I am LOVING this video.
When I heard the track, I was like "ehh..." But the visual has DEFINITELY made me a fan.
 I love the whole dance sequence at the end. That side split on the pole... BABY!
 It made me flash back to Aaliyah's "Are You That Somebody" mixed with "If Your Girl Only Knew".
Two thumbs up Chris and Keri!

Ne-Yo Performs In Japan And Does Charity Work For Quake Victims

I haven't blogged about it but if you follow me on Twitter, you'd know how I felt about the devastating earthquakes and tsunami that hit Japan. I followed coverage on CNN, NBC, BBC, and ABC that whole night!
It was overwhelming to say the least. The one thing that I thanked God for was the Japanese ability to remain calm during the madeness and the level of preparation the earthquake victims at least had.
I was worried about nuclear leaks before anyone was even mentioning them because I know about Japan's history with nuc facilities and they are extremely delicate. When the initial reports came in about there being now "reason to worry about nuclear leaks" I said it was a lie. A few hours later, they confirmed my suspicions.

While many artists are now afraid to go to the country because of all the aftershocks and leaks, Ne-Yo decided that he's not. He continued with his tour in Japan and played a show in Nagoya last Saturday.
He did some charity work with his motto, ‘Spread Love Through Music’ and greeted his fans backstage. 

Lol the :30 second mark is by far the most hilarious thing. She's so cute with her squealing!

In other news, apparently some of his backup dancers were less than enthused about going on with the tour because of the aftershocks.
They decided they would not participate in the Japan leg of the tour and were, unfortunately, dropped from the rest of the tour... Womp womp.
*Cue Irreplaceable*
"Dont you ever for a second get to thinkin, you're IRREPLACEABLE!!!! To the left to the left!"

In Dire Need Of Some H.E.L.P

A while ago I asked you all what you wanted to see of me.
Most people said “outfit posts!”
I’d love to but the problem is… I HATE MY DIGITAL CAMERA! It’s so bitchy, and not in a good way.
I decided that if I wanted to take my blogging more seriously, I’d have to buy a new camera.
Soo… I’m on the hunt for a new one.

The only problem is… I have NO IDEA which one to buy.

I am not tech savvy at all so I am in an odd predicament.
Can one of my lovely readers HELP A SISTER OUT?!

Any suggestions?

Rihanna Covers American Vogue's 10th Annual Shape Issue This April

Strangely, this is Rihanna’s first American Vogue cover.
I find it rather amazing because she's a phenomenal canvas for designers because of her unique look. 
I could have sworn she covered Vogue when she was Gucci's spokesperson...
Anyway,  Riri is covering the magazine's10th Annual Shape issue.
Shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, Rihanna put down her whips, chains, lollipos, and latex dresses.
Instead, she gave us vintage beauty with classic nudes and, my fovorite, Chanel.
She's looking GREAT!

Alexander McQueen Pre-fall 2011 Shoes

The Alexander McQueen pre-fall 2011 line is definietly SHOEGASM worthy.
I'mglad that the that new creative head, Sarah Burton, is fitting in perfectly.
The shoe designs definitely remind me of the late designer.
The stacked platforms with A-symmetrical shapes are sweet yet edgy. 


Throwback Thursday: "New Attitude"- Patti Labelle

This week's Throwback Thursday goes to none other than Aunty Patti!
I LOVE this song. It's definitely an anthem in my book.

Lol now aunty Patti... Why did you let them put on that 2nd wig and Asian inspired chef top?
No ma'am. I was with you up until that point lol.

However, the black hat... LOVE IT! I thought it was hair...
"I'm feeling good from my head to my shoes! I got a new attitude!"

WTF Wednesday: Waka Flocka Flame Is PETA's Newest Spokesperson... Why?

"Animals should be treated the same as you would a kid. Would you want someone just to walk up and skin your kid? Hell no!” -Waka Flocka Flame
So is PETA mad that the urban community still goes to Kennedy Fried Chicken every Friday and Saturday night for a 2 piece and fries?
I don't comprehend the purpose of having Waka Flocka Flame promote for PETA.
This is the same man who is singing about "doing it with no hands" and thinks "voting is aight"...
Can I be a spokesperson too?

No seriously... Who in their urban division decided this was a good idea?
Fire them.

There are SO MANY other young urban entertainers that could represent their company.
Why Waka Flocka?
Part of me feels like this is a subtle jab at the community.
Is this how this era is going to be remembered? By Waka Flocka's and Snooki's?

And let me make another point. As a marketing major, I know that their target market was the hood but PETA, NEWSFLASH! Nobody in the hood can AFFORD real fur fool!
So don't you think putting your time and money into something else would have been smarter?
I'm not mad at Waka at all, i'd do the ad to... then i'd go home and make some stew chicken, rice and peas, salad, and plantains!

Waka Flocka can barely tweet properly much less be the spokesperson for an ad campaign... I can see his tweets now:
"Yeh! I possed nakid for PETA. Animuls is people too. I dun wan nobodi trin to wear ma skin an shit. WAKA!"
Lol, pure comedy it will be...

New Video: Willow Smith "21st Century Girl"

Willow Smith is still on the grind.
Willow turns desert sands into civilization in the video for her new single “21st Century Girl.”
The little wonderwoman her crew of girls pull buildings and cars out of the sand to create a modern world. 
After the HUGE success of "Whip My Hair", I was a bit aprehensive about whether or not she could keep the momentum going with her second single.
I heard "21st Century Girl" and I do like it. While it doesn't have as much age crossover as the first single, I am all for positive role models for these young girls. Seeing a little one such as Willow doing it may give another little girl encouragement.

Throwback Thursday: "Juicy"- Biggie Smalls

"Fu*k all you hoes... Get a grip!"

Lol how do you start a song like this?
Anywho I LOVE this song by Biggie. I'ts beyond a classic.
Being from Brooklyn, and a late 80's baby, this song forever has a special place in my heart.
Everytime I hear it I smile. I know just about every word.
"Super Nintendo, Sega genesis, when I was dead broke man I couldn't picture this!"
It motivates me.
I can't wait to make it so I can say
"We use to fuss when the lanlord dissed us. No heat. Wonder why christmas missed us! Birthdays was the worst days, now we sip champagne when we thirsty! Damn right I like the life I live cause I went from negative to positive and it's alllll goood!"

WTF Wednesday: Charlie Sheen Has Lost His Damn Mind

Charlie Sheen has gone BONKERS.
He decided to go on a 48-hour media tour spewing all kinds of madness into the Universe.
Charlie was interviewed early Monday on "Good Morning America" and "Today" and later on TMZ's live webcast, talk radio program "Loose Cannons" and CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." The next day, he chatted on Howard Stern's radio show.
What prompted this?
Who knows! But whatever drugs Charlie is on, I need to be on it because CLEARLY it's some GOOD STUFF.

Sheen has not only been having trouble landing roles, the actor has been going through very public family family drama. These two things may have been the straw that broke this camels back.

I've combined some of his best interview statements... BTW, His publicist has officially resigned.
