Beyonce- Why Don't You Love Me

June 15, 2010

Beyonce plays the role of a desperate housewife better than Eva Longoria in her latest video- Why Don’t You Love Me. Written by sister Solange, Beyonce shows she’s a better actor in her vids.  Deciding to go 50’s all the way- (Which is totally ironic; due to the fact Hank Williams had his own rendition of “Why Don’t You Love Me” in the 50’s) from the narrator and music in the opening scene, the car choice, and obviously the fashion.

Her stylist got it completely right with choosing trends and looks of the upcoming fall season.  Top four things to look for:

  • tailoring
  • volume
  • sculpture
  • restraint

And you can believe they covered all of them.  New shapes and lady-like volumes were the basis of the video and the look of the season.  You knew Beyonce wasn’t going anywhere without that unitard one-piece! Restraint and sculpture: check.  High waisted hot-pants crept in; they been around since 2007 when Chanel  and D&G decided to hit us hard with ’em.  (Remember Gwen on the cover of InStyle with the sequent pair?  Then Beyonce shortly followed on her own cover the same year)  But any-who, on to the other important pieces I spotted.

  • Chunky, embellished jewels- focus on rings ( See nOir Jewelry post)
  • Sky-high platforms- new lavender Christian Louboutin’s
  • Cat-eye lenses
  • Striped sweater
  • Tiffany blue nail polish (get the color from: Quirius- Jamaican Dream)
  • Red/Nude, plump lips
  • Chanel accessories
  • Lace, lace, LACE- big Fall 2010 trend

I loved her interlude, the mascara running down her face, and the dusting off of her, Destiny’s Child, and Jay-Z’s grammys; it gave us that bitchy Beyonce we love oh-so-much.  Other ironic fact?  Mens-wear inspired garments are the biggest focus for designers at the moment; what are the odds she’d be fixing a car in the opening scene? Hmmmmm…  This is probably my favorite video from Bey, hands down.  I’m sure you’ve seen it, but who cares.  I can watch it over and over.  And now that you know what to look for, enjoy. ~ C.M.

Eminem's Album to Drop Sooner Than Expected

June 15, 2010

According to rapbasement.com and Eminem himself, the album will be released next Monday (yes people the album has indded been pushed up…that’s rare). I’m sure the hip hop heads are very much excited about this, and for some reason, iAm 2. It’d time to see a rapper take the number one spot on the Billboard 200 Album Sales charts for at least a week. Pop has been taking over. Guests for the album include Lil’ Wayne, Kobe, P!nk, and Rihanna.

Eye candy of the day ladies. Little Sammie has grown up! While he may not look all that hot in the face (iKnow some 1 out there is thinking that…but it isn’t me), his body looks great! He’s been hitting the gym and eating his Wheaties.

June 15, 2010

Prince (the most beautiful man alive) is to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the BET Awards this year. The 51 year old superstar (yes 51…he doesn’t look a day over 40 iSwear) joins Whitney Houston, James Brown, and Al Green who have all been honored for the award. BET says the Prince tribute will stand out. Stephan G. Hill, the president of programming, music and specials for the network, said BET will celebrate the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s “unique style.” He also called the performer dynamic, genius, and that he IS music. iKnow 4 a fact that Cie Cie will be watching, and so will I. iLove Prince and iCan’t wait to see what he’s wearing to the event!

Fantasia's Album Cover

June 15, 2010

This is the album cover for Fantasia’s upcoming 3rd album Back To Me, which is due out on July 27th (the day b4 my step fathers birthday). The album was originally scheduled to be released on July 13th (my birthday), but as we can see, it has been pushed back. The cover to me shows a young, soulful artist who has found peace within herself and her family life. Her two singles Even Angles and Bittersweet have yet to chart on any of the Billboard Charts (that’s right, not even the RnB Charts), but iDon’t think that will stop her. She has a pretty committed fanbase, and with the help of her reality TV show, I’m sure the album will reach gold status at least and debut well. The album will have 12 songs (which is great a RnB album in my opinion), and only has 1 feature appearance which is Cee-Lo Green. Go head Fanny!

1. I’m Doin’ Me
2. Bittersweet
3. Man of the House
4. Who’s Been Lovin’ You
5. Collard Greens & Cornbread
6. Teach Me
7. Move On Me
8. Trust Him
9. The Thrill Is Gone featuring Cee-Lo
10. Falling In Love Tonight
11. Even Angels
12. I’m Here

Drake Thank Me Later Album Review

June 15, 2010

iFinally jumped on Drakes fan wagon…well kind of. iLiked over (why wouldn’t I…it wuz played everywhere iWent) and iReally like his new song Find Your Love. While his album leaked 2 weeks ago, it was officially released in stores today. As we know, Drake doesn’t only rap, but he sings 2. I 4 one prefer him singin over rapping. The album starts off with the mellow yet aggressive song Fireworks, which features Alicia Keys. It then goes to the slow reggae vibe song Karaoke where Drake is singing through and iLove it! Drake picks back up with the next few songs by rapping but slows it back down with Show Me A Good Time and the popular Up All Night featuring Nicki Minaj. This song should definitely be a single, it already has over 1 million hits on YouTube. The album is basically a collection of hip hop songs and nice rnb songs. The album works for the hip-hop heads who want to hear a nice emcee u can say, but it really caters to the rnb people who just wanna sit back and relax with their significant other. The album will definitely get girls into their birthday suit for sure so guys iSuggest u get a copy of this. My predictions of 1st week sales is around the 200-300,000 mark. I’m not a big hip-hop and rap fan so the album doesn’t really do it for me, but with Drakes singing that iLove so much, and the great production igive the album 6.5/10

Kelly Rowland in Elle Magazine

June 15, 2010

Rihanna’s cover issue of Elle magazine features a spread of  Kelly Rowland. Kelly has always been my favorite member of  Destiny’s Child. Even though I’m not a big supporter of her like iShould be, iStill care 4 her! Kelly has never been the stand-out member of Destiny’s Child as we know, nor has she ever been a dare to be different type of star. She always tends to play things safe and go with the flow. Even though Beyonce is more popular than Kelly and Michelle, Kelly has something that Beyonce doesn’t have…a big over seas fan base. Kelly may not be able to get a hit here in the states, she has plenty in Europe, Japan, and South America.  Work Kelly! Make yourself relevant in the United States of the America, by being relevant in The United Kingdom of the seas !
