Anais Mali

African Model, Anais Mali struts in a Jason Wu Fall 2011 dress. 
Heart the lace mask!

Nothing Like Quiet Strength

I love this track. It is right UP my alley. Very sentimental. It has a Hippie 60's vibe to it . And this song represents multicolored flower petals I toss for every disappointment, I have ever known. Life is good.

Brahim Zaibat

I am suffering from a bout of  Madonna fever. In an effort to destroy Gaga's hallucinations that she is just like Our Royal Highness, Madonna. It is only fair to make mention of Madonna's 24 year old French-Algerian, her break dancer  boyfriend, BRAHIM ZAIBAT. Goodness he is hot. hot. The acrobatics darling is just out of this world. yes. you Brahim. The Islamic Abraham. Just poifect for our madge.

Brahim Zaibat
And the shot you see is real!!!! He is a break-dancer!
As we salivate !
Madonna and Brahim 
Did I mention? He is a devout Muslim ? 
Yes, Madonna, break the rules....that is how we love it. 
That is why I am a fan. 

As a woman, I am grateful for noble souls like Madonna. 
Her ex-bestie, Gwyneth Paltrow recently had this to say regarding extra-marital affairs ,

It's like we're flawed — we're human beings and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge." -Mrs. Martin

Push the envelope much ? lol 

Press Play to see this Brahma as in Brahim ZaaaaZaibat! at work

Madonna is just amazing. If you hate this video, or cannot appreciate ALL of it. Then, I am not sorry for your loss. Glad I was not born a hater. I don't hate, NEVER, I take notes or 'was that what YOU were doing ? sit down jare.' lol

The Truth about Madonna

" I hate fags who hate women "--Madonna " truth or dare "

Madonna bug bit me at the age of 7!!!!. so , please Gaga and her over-the-top costumes is an insult to true connoisseurs of timeless good music.

Bow Tie Sexy. And she sizzles

Kourtney and beau, Scott Disick 

Kourtney is hands-down a sexy woman .

Golden Squabs!

Golden Globes took place this past weekend at the Bevely Hilton in Beverly Hills, Kahliphorniayay!! lol   and one would think , the drama subsides when the director yells " Scene!", but never, ever, ever is that the case. Most "actors", okay, the politically correct term would be , "performers", never ever tone it down. They are always performing. So, Madonna, one of my icons happened to nab the award for Best Original Song,  " Masterpiece" , and god forbid according to  Queen Elton John's husband, David Furnish would not have it. Talk about being a sore loser. Dude, ok, we get it, you are gay , but please remember that we women have the periods and deal with menopause, so you still need to be a gentleman in the presence of our madge. ....madgilicious!!!!

 "And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is."--David Furnish on the Madonna.

If many of you remember the interview Madonna recently gave to ABC's 20/20, she was asked about her feelings towards Gaga and Madonna's response was , " Gaga is reductive" .  Madonna hit the nail on the head, because Gaga is a copycat. As in unoriginal. How is it that Gaga's " Born this Way" sounds eerily familiar to Madonna's " Express Yourself "?

Madonna's Blonde Ambition Tour , " Express Yourself "

As Madonna told NY Times,  "I certainly think she references me a lot in her work. Sometimes I think it's amusing and flattering." --Madonna.

At the end of the day, there is an undeniable rythm to Madonna's " Express Yourself " versus  the confusing Gaga's " Born this Way " ..see? copying is ill-advised.

However, Gaga's psycho comment on the whole matter is quite annoying. At what point do people realize that flattery is really not really a form a of compliment? "

" I genuinely love her so much. I think she is so amazing. She could never be replicated and, yes, I’m Italian, I’m from New York, and not for nothing, it’s not my fault that I kind of look like her, right?" --Gaga on Madonna's comment. No Gaga, you look nothing like Madonna.

Lady Gaga's "Born This Way."

Gaga is a nightmare.

Some people stay up working their little minds over time just trying to find a link to their idol and Gaga took it too far, just like annoying family members, can . oops, did I say that ?

Every individual is uniquely and perfectly made. Find what makes you unique and stop negating self by wanting to be like someone else.  

Back to the David Furnish's comment on Madonna's take on copycat Gaga

"Madonna. Best song???? F--k off!!!" "--David Furnish

Clearly David needs a glass of champagne , because his comments make no sense at all. Gaga copied Madonna. And Madonna won the Golden Globe for her song. get over it.

Madonna's Golden Globe worthy "Masterpiece"

A Photograph Worth Posting

I love this Kristin Bell photograph. It's quite beautiful . 
Don't mind the haters, just live .

4 + 4 = Ivy Blue

Money talks and unfortunately healthcare providers should care very little about money, especially when their medical code of ethics does not allow for the type of red carpet which was rolled out for Beyonce and Jay-Z as they prepared for the birth of their new bundle of joy, Ivy Blue Carter. Don't get me wrong, it is a blessing when two people are able to welcome their new bundle of joy into the world, but, however renting an entire floor of hospital to give birth to a child is a bit extreme and Lenox Hill Hospital in New York, allegedly broke the code of ethics because $1.3 million is just too much cheddah to pass up .

 Beyonce ( pictured in Marc Jacobs dress)  and hubby, Jay-Z pictured in the streets of Paris, last year.
Allegedly, Ivy Blue was conceived in Paris.
Was this picture taken the morning after ?

According to reports via E!News , " According to several news outlets, Beyoncé gave birth in her own section of the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York. Per our own crack news team, Mr. and Mrs. Carter restricted the movements of other parents and patients during their stay. One new father told The New York Post he made four attempts to visit his baby twins in the neonatal intensive care unit, only to be turned away because of Beyoncé's unspecified VIP needs."

That's not even the half of the alleged reports, allegedly another new father, Neil Coulon,  was stopped from going to see his wife, who just gave birth to their premature twin girls.

Coulon said, "Three times they stopped me from entering or exiting the NICU and it happened once on Friday - just because they wanted to use the hallway," even going so far as to kick his relatives out of the waiting room since it was too close to Beyoncé's wing. Additionally, he added, "These are children with problems in intensive care and you're just going to take over the hospital like you own it? All I want is an apology … Nobody cares if you're a celebrity. Nobody is star-gazing. They just want to see their children." - NYDN

Basically, this type of rubbish should not happen at a health facility. Blocking out a whole wing was unnecessary.Meanwhile, in a typical artist fashion, oops, meant, scion of a Hip-Hop royalty, Jay-Z just released a new single in honor of  his little princess, Ivy Carter, aptly titled , "Glory ".

Subtle Sensuality

Quite hot. What I find too hot and quite  " origi " as in original is her footwear. They are not stilettos, they are low-heeled boots, but she poses in such a way, one would think she is wearing stilettos. Rih-Rih, darls, you rocketh. Let me get a " Yeseth!".lol

Reem Acra : Lights, Camera, Action!

Oh la .LA! This is an impressive, painstakingly embellished top. And we cannot forget the skirt. This is a Reem Acra production . So who or what is Reem Acra? Reem Acra is a bridal fashion label. It is also the name of the head designer and founder, a talented Lebanese by the name of Reem Acra.

Love the sleeveless embellished top, but what of the floor length, pleated turquoise skirt? Love!!! The gold belt certainly adds a regal flair to the entire outfit.  And kudos to the stylist. Love the minimalist approach of this photoshoot. If luck is on your side, you  may just be able to pick up the top or the skirt at Neiman Marcus or Saks Fifth Avenue.
