This is why im in love with Kanye West.

MUSIC: AMERIE







I don't think you realise how SICK Amerie is. Every album of hers has always been good. Yesterday I found one of her album's, 'Touch' and blazed it en route to Camden. Tune after TUNEEEE! Oi! If you aint proper listened to Amerie, please jus sit down, fling one of my her albums and digest her music. 


One of the tunes which caught me singing along loud as ever and turning up my speaker on full blast was her tune 'Fallin' on the 'Touch' album. 










Amerie, hunny, please sack your manager (i don't care if its her fiancĂ©), your too talented to not be where your at now. :D

HEADWRAP AND ALL THAT JAZZ








Loving Eva Marceille outfit. Not sure if I really like the whole outfit. It goes for some reason even though the need for the Gucci bag was zilch! The headwrap is SEXAYYY! You know I got a thing for them already.

VIDEO: ERYKAH BADU - OUT MY MIND, JUST IN TIME

The video features Erykah Badu dancing, expressing the words to her song. Apparently she studied dance and she's pretty good at it.

EAR CUFFS 'R' US








EAR CUFFS!!!! I really wanna be seeing everyone rocking these this summer. These babies have been around for ages but as always fashion is recyclable and it looks like their cool again. DO NOT overdo it with ear cuffs on both ears, 1 is enough. Just wear a plain cute stud or a stud with a similar design of the ear cuff if you can find one. Your choice really. 


Where to get one???????


Vintage shops and charity shops  - you could find a real gem in there. 


This snake shape ear cuff by Regalrose is a BEAUT! Really love it and i think i shall be purchase. 


Ive seen some on ASOS.com aswell and in other high street shops. Have a search around and find the one that suits you best!! ooo and check on ebay too!

Now if you don't know already, I love off Kanye West. When I saw this my jealous streak ignited lool, I had to kiss my teeth. He baitly did it to get some sort of media attention. Why the need to go on the balcony to lips up your one night stand? Really Kanye, REALLY? *PREPARES SHOTGUN*


Oh a brighter note, Yeezy performed with Jamie Foxx at the Cannes Festival aswell. Here's the vid.

YOUTUBE TALENT: VANJESS

I randomly came across these two young talented ladies who go by the name 'VanJess' (which is most likely a combo on both their names) on youtube some time ago. I was instantly subscribed to their channel when i heard their cover of 'Alicia Keys - Unthinkable'. Absolutely EPIC!!

Here are some of my fav cover vids:







They will also be releasing their first single on itunes by summer they've said! Good for them. It always good to see young fresh talent getting somewhere in the industry. Wish them all the best.

EVENT ALERT: RICK ROSS @ HMV FORUM




YEP, the boss is back this summer at HMV Forum on June 20th and June 26th. TBH, I will not be attending this time. Don't get it twisted, Rick Ross can perform. The guy owns the stage. The vibe at the concert in nov 2010 was LIVE until LV and Gucci guys got gassed and decided to get excited and beat up some dude in the standing section. If you are a Rick Ross fan or you didn't get a chance to go to his last concert then GO.
