Glamour’s Woman of The Year Awards

 

This year’s Women of the Year Awards, hosted by Glamour at London’s Berkeley Square Gardens is a monumental way of celebrating the achievements of women in showbiz across the globe. It goes without saying then that being voted women of the year will bring not just the glamorous but the flawless fashion from entertainment’s leading ladies.

The award for most stylist most definitely goes to the gorgeous Miss Kelly Rowland. The now American based RnB star hasn’t been caught much on our side of the pond since the fiasco with the xfactor drama last year…however it seems the songstress couldn’t possibly miss receiving her award for ‘TV Personality of the Year. Kelly wore a beautiful silk halter neck dress by Maria Grachvogel to the glamour annual event.

Also at the event, both London and American based celebs were Eva Longoria in a Victoria Beckham dress won an award for Inspiration of the year, Alexandra Burke, Alesha Dixon, Jessica Alba in Alexander McQueen Won Entrepreneur of the year and Jessie J who won Solo Artist for the year. As much as it hurts me to admit Eva Longoria has to be my favourite and look positively gorgeous in her Beckham creation…Magnifique!

Rihanna Releases Teaser Promo Pics For New Nude Perfume+Rihanna Spotted Ravin It Up ‘With’ Chris Brown

Rihanna happily tweeted about her photo shoot for her new perfume taken on Friday. I can’t say I’m especially stunned by the pics considering the controversy the 24-year-Old antagonist RnB singer caused with her last perfume ‘Rebel’. The new perfume, named ‘NUDE’ is apt for her continuous need to flash the flash. Rihanna worked her Blonde ambition for during the promo pics which about the only attractive feature of the photo shoot.

It seems for Rihanna and her peeps (we’ll do good to remember Rihanna didn’t become who she is today all by herself) seems more concerned about the image branding of the the perfume as oppose to the actual scent, this is going by her previous attempts at perfumery…BUT we wait and see to have a sniff and give our verdict.

Rihanna keeps the blonde wig and continues to party hard…it’s a case of working hard and playing hard for the RnB Pop star. On the night in question when these pics were taken, it was another case of coincidence as Rihanna was said to be partying at LA’s Club ‘My Studio’ only yards away from Mr. Breezy who was raving it up over at Supper Club. Gosh they do keep ‘bumping’ into each other, I guess that town aint big enough for the both of em.

Celebs In White: Janet J & Teyana Taylor Do PLUNGING Neck Lines!

Summer can bring out the best and the worst in our sense of fashion, however if you’re a veteran is the business of entertainment, you can pretty much get away with ‘letting it all hang out’. Janet J was snapped posing in this VERY low neck line. Janet attended the annual Aids amFAR event in Cannes in a revealing bright white Pucci gown. Bearing in mind Janet has had a dramatic weight loss can you blame her for wanting to flash a bit of the flesh?

Years apart the 21-year-old RnB singer Teyana Taylor followed the plunging neck line trend and flaunts her goods on the red carpet in another Emilo Pucci gown. Teyana was spotted earlier this week at Kanye’s West Cannes movie premier for cruel summer. Blink and you be forgiven for thinking it’s the same person, says alot about Janet and your slim physique.

After years of talks and legal considerations, Buck has agreed to a deal and has pleaded guilty to possessing firearms and ammunition as a convicted felon.

When will these rappers learn?

Holding a bottle of water in his right hand and rocking a pair of Tims, Nas calmly posses in a chair with his million selling ‘God’s Son’ beside him…

Is Nas still relevant to Hip Hop? Just asking!

Read excerpts of his interview with Complex Magazine below:

On when he knew his relationship with Kelis was over
There was a point where we were trying to hold onto a relationship that was finished. She was pregnant and in the studio while we were recording Distant Relatives, and he would move when the music would come on. That was a great feeling for me, just to have that feeling of family. It ended around the time the record was being done.

There were times when it didn’t bother me, and there were times when it bothered me a lot. There were times when I was thinking, ‘Damn. I had this shit all planned out, and now I’ve failed’. That was hard on me, because I don’t like to fail at anything. Accepting that I failed at this relationship—and it was public—messed me up. You ask yourself, ‘How could that person be so cold’? And I’m sure she felt the same way about me. It was ugly.

On whether he knew they weren’t going to make it as a couple
Yeah, but it was a problem I was attracted to. It was rock and roll. I saw Kelis as Courtney Love—but I also saw her as a mahogany queen. I saw us as a beautiful thing. I saw us as inspiration. People weren’t seeing hip-hop artists get married. A lot of people came at me crazy. But I think overall, we were inspiring people to love.

There was a lot that was thrown at her that she couldn’t handle. Like I was saying earlier, there’s a lot that I could tell my kids, but they’ve got to fish it out for themselves. Every night, she was in bed with Harvard. She was sleeping with Harvard. She had all the answers, but I needed something more from her, that she either wasn’t ready or didn’t know how to provide. Plus, she is younger than me and she hadn’t seen all the things I had seen. She was on her journey, I was on mine. In the beginning, I said, “There’s parts of this that might not work,” but there was a beautiful part of it, too. For the most part, I had a great time being married. It was amazing. She’s an amazing woman.

On  Kelis dissing him publicly
She did. Over Twitter [...] the response was not good. There were bad tweets. She was angry. She was lashing out at anyone—and anyone she would lash out at, people automatically thought she was talking about me. My daughter would be calling me, like, “Dad. I’m on my way to school, and they’re talking about you on the radio.” My daughter wanted to tweet back and sh-t, and I told her to take the high road. It was ugly.

On their relationship now
It’s a lot better.

On whether he gets to see his son
That side is not great yet, but it’s working toward being that way. She’s a new mom. I’m busy and she’s busy. From what I see, she’s being a good mom, and it’s working toward a great place. There was a time when I couldn’t see him at all. It was terrible when the divorce was fresh.

On whether he hated her at any point
No. I got to a point where I was like, “Did she always hate me?” and “Did she ever love me at all?” I’ve got to admit, I did feel like that. But she did love me.

[...] A lot of divorces are bad because a woman is just being vindictive. She’s not after the money, she just wants you to hurt the way she was hurt.

On the money he lost in the divorce
It’s f-cked up when money’s involved in divorce. And I don’t give a f-ck. I can’t take it with me, so someone can take the money. Anyone that I’m married to, if I give you my life, I give you my heart, I love you—my money is nothing. You can have it all. It’s just sad that when you’re dealing with love and life and marriage, that marriage is a contract. It’s a business deal. That messes people up.

On whether he ever sees himself getting married again
Not right now. I’m enjoying life and looking at each day like, “This is beautiful.” I’m having a good time. I’m not going to bring anybody in to mess that up. You come around looking like you’re going to mess this good time up, you’re out of here—fast. [Laughs.] I’m not sacrificing my happiness for nobody and their drama. No way.
On his new track titled ‘Daughter’ and how guilty he feels sometimes
This is the first time I’m dealing with a teenage daughter, and it blows me away. I don’t know that you’re ever prepared to be a parent. Once you become one, that’s your responsibility. It’s more like me talking to myself, about how I could have been there a lot more. I beat myself up for not being the best I could be. I would ask her: “Am I a cool dad?” or “Am I a good dad? Did I f-ck up?” And she would say, “Nah, you’re good.” That’s important to me because I started as a teen. I was around 19 when her mother was pregnant. My daughter means a lot to me. It’s just a record that came from the heart
