Scarlett Johansson Takes It Off For Interview Magazine

Scarlett Johansson recently posed topless with Interview Magazine...

Okay, you couldn't see anything but isn't she gorgeous!

The star sat down with the magazine to discuss a plethora of things- including her upcoming films We Bought A Zoo (December) and The Avengers.
If you don't know, Scarlett is my girl crush! Not only is she beautiful and a phenomenal actress; she is also a humanitarian! Last Summer she traveled to Kenya and Somalia with Oxfam to assist with the relief effort in the wake of a severe drought that has plagued East Africa-- Go Scarlett!

This Thanksgiving I spent time with my family in Boston, MA.

The weather was surprisingly decent so I got to take pictures outside on the patio.

Adele Covers Cosmopolitan Magazine

Cosmo is WINNING!
Last month I got my issue and Nicki Minaj was on the cover, I had a moment...
But getting my December 2011 issue and seeing Adele on the cover?!
I had another moment.

After the Vogue Magazine scandal- only her face graced the cover alledgely because of her size- I was happy to see Adele on the cover in a gorgeous leopard D&G dress.

Shoegasm: Crystals & Pearls

Saw these shoes and automatically fell in love... They make me want to put on a see-through white lingerie gown and stand on a balcony.... I obviously have an overactive imagination.

These are custom made shoes by Tess Harriss, you want them? You'll have to pay a pretty penny, but they're HOT! Check out the designer EverlastingLife


Music Monday: Bridget Kelly- Every Girl (VIDEO)

"Didn't you used to date her? What do you mean why do I hate her? I gotta find every girl that ever loved you and kill her dead... right away..."

Today's Music Monday post is by Bridget Kelly.
The Roc Nation artist has toured the world and preformed on live television before she even released an album.
She went on the road with boss and mentor Jay-Z but has branched off and has recently released an mixtape titled "Every Girl" a few weeks ago.

She has been getting some great reviews!

Coincidentally, Bridget attended the same high school as I (she was a sweetheart!).
I bumped into her at a recent ASCAP event and caught up with her, as well as got a chance to see her preform, for the second time in a few weeks, live.

The song "Every Girl" has been on repeat since I downloaded the mixtape.
The semi-eerie track speaks to the female who has ever wanted her boyfriend's ex to just disappear.

"The only reason that their all still alive is cause I don't know where to put them"

If you like what you've heard, download Bridget Kelly's mixtape "Every Girl" here.

OOTD: What I Wore To The WEEN Awards

At yesterday's event I rocked this outfit.
The mandatory all black was a blessing because I've been DYING to wear this dress!

Bandage Dress: Forever 21
Leopard Pumps:
Necklace: ASOS
Bracelets: Thrifted

That was the 1st time I'd ever worn those pumps. I LOVE them but I think I may have to sell them or return them. They are one size TOO BIG! I felt like a clown trying not to slip out of the shoe and fall :-(


Out & About: The 3rd Annual WEEN Awards with Estelle, Keri Hilson, Egypt, and More (PICS)

WEEN Co-founders Sabrina Thompson and Valeisha Butterfield-Jones w/ honoree Estelle

Yesterday I attended the 3rd Annual WEEN Awards at The Samsung Experience in New York City.
If you don't remember, during my summertime hiatus from the blog world, I was attending the 1st ever WEEN academy. WEEN, which stands for Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network, is a non-profit group of women and men that support and promote a positive portrayal of women in entertainment and society.

Last night WEEN awarded Keri Hilson, Estelle, editor of Billboard magazine Danyel Smith, TV and radio personality Egypt Sherrod for their proven commitment in to women in the entertainment industry. They also honored marketing professional Jennifer Yu, and Tracy Mourning.

Among the people that were there: Amanda Diva, Alesha Renee, Mashonda (all three were professors at the academy), Sylvia Rhone, Mona Scott Young, NFL player Ramses Barden, and celebrity publicist BJ Coleman were in the building.

Naomi Campbell Covers 'Soon International'... Bald And Beautiful

My 2nd mommy (in my head) Naomi Campbell is on the cover of Soon International.
The cover, photographed by Seb Janiak, shows Naomi bald and gleaming.

She looks like a mannequin!

Say what you want about Naomi, but one thing you can't say is that she is NOT a BAD BISH! She looks better at 40+ than some of the 20 year old I know.

I love nay nay... Blackberry hurling and all.

Don't Mess With My Girls: Shyane Dejesus Fights Back!

When I got a phone call asking "did you see Shyane on the news?!" I said "No, What happened? Did she finally me Beyonce and act a fool?"
That's Shyane. A sweet, fun loving, charismatic girl with a beautiful and open spirit.

But no. They responded "NO! Shyane was molested in the train station and kicked the guys ass! She also got a picture and went to the cops."
