T.I. Goes Back To Jail

Just one day after being released from Federal Correctional Center in Forest City, Arkansas, rapper T.I. was removed from the halfway house in which he was to serve the remainder of his sentence and placed back into federal custody due to his choice in transportation. His current sentence is the result of a drug related parole violation that came after initially serving time on weapons charges. According to federal prison officials, T.I. led them into falsely believing that his mode of transportation from prison to the Atlanta, Georgia halfway house would be more discrete than the luxury tour bus in which he ultimately traveled. Apparently this was enough to warrant sending U.S. Marshals to pick him up and move him to another facility. 

Lady Gaga vs Lady Cathy Horyn


Lady Gaga recently took her gloves off to pen a few comments about Cathy Horyn for her column at V magazine, according to an article from Elle magazine. The New York Times fashion critic recently criticized Versace’s excitement over dressing Gaga writing, “Be choosier, Ms. Versace.” While Gaga makes no mention of the incident, she does take the opportunity to attack Horyn’s approach to criticism. “It’s much more challenging to reckon with and analyze a work. It
requires research, but maybe no one does their research anymore.” Gaga goes on to encourage Horyn to “employ a more modern and forward approach to criticism, one that
separates [her] from the average individual at home on their laptop.”

First Lady on the cover of Essence


First Lady Michelle Obama looks flawless on the October issue of Essence. Seriously, we are drooling. In the October issue, she confesses that there is no magic to getting to where she is now. The message is an encouraging one for those who aren’t afraid to dream big.

“My story to young people around this country and around the world
is, Don’t look at me as the First Lady first; look at me as Michelle
Obama, a girl who grew up on the South Side of Chicago. Because I was
there, and this is attainable. There is no magic to this. It is hard

Seeing Stars Worthy or Not?

Nicki Minaj was recently featured in the Ocotber Issue of Glamour magazine. We love all of the looks but we couldn’t help but notice that the Dolce and Gabbana star number that the lyrical artist  wore was worn by Zoe Saldana when she appeared on Le Grand Journal.   
Saldana wore it back in May, but we had to ask can the two be compared? Or did each celeb do a superb job at making it their own?

 Too Cute Right?

Kelly Rowland’s Vibe Cover Too Racy?


Kelly Rolwand is on the cover of Vibe’s Juice Issue baring it all. The interview involves Kelly going more into her new image and discussing coming into her sexuality more with her hit record Motivation. To be honest, we love the cover and we can’t get enough of Kelly. Here is an excerpt from the interview:

VIBE: The last album didn’t do well in the States. It did better overseas, particularly in Europe. Do you feel more appreciated in Europe? 

Kelly Rowland: No, not really. People still compare me to B over there. I said in an interview recently, ‘You know, if you guys would be a little bit more intelligent and ask me about myself we’ll have a much better interview.’ You can’t want a story from me and keep asking me about the past.
VIBE: When you heard the song [“Motivation”], did you think, This may be too racy for my image? 
Not at all. Every woman knows what that feels like—hopefully. But everyone doesn’t expect Kelly to sing about it. This is true. But I just loved the song so much. And yes, I can relate to it. I came into my sexuality while I was recording this album. I can walk into a sex shop now and not worry about what people would say if they saw me in there.
