LET’S REVISIT THE 1999 INITIATIONS

Posted in Award Shows, It's a Damn Shame, Lil Kim, PINK with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 8, 2010 by Kenya

MTV is the devil’s playground. An evil forum for initiates and grand dames alike. No doubt, Pinks trapeze act was much more than a circus influenced performance, it was her initation.
Here’s pink flying high above the crowd at last years ceremony…

Notice the baring of her left breast.  Since this was on television, they covered the nipple.

Not only is her left breast exposed,

but she has the tell tale masonic checkerboard pattern on her leotard.  Tell me why is it even there, what purpose would it serve if it wasn’t a masonic symbol, and this was a harmless awards show, as they want you to believe.  HIDDEN IN PLAIN VIEW.

Now think back if you can, to 1999.  Lil Kim shows up to the MTV awards in a purple, sequined jumpsuit, with HER LEFT BREAST BARED, AND A PASTY T COVER THE NIPPLE.

Remember how Diana Ross came out onstage and felt her up in front of the world?  Did you see Mary J Blige’s face, like she was not amused!  That was Kim’s initiation ( that is my opinion and I’m sticking to it)  One of the initation requirements is for the initate to be humiliated in public some kind of way.   Rihanna’s “beating”, and Taylors “wtf” moment.  I believe that Diana Ross was also a puppet since I’m positive that Berry Gordy probably took an oath to be as successful as he was, after all she slept with and had children by the man.   You’ll also recall that this was when Kim was still beautiful, before she began to destroy her face.

What’s Wrong With This Gal?

Okay so it wasn’t enough that Lil Mama makes a complete fool of herself by hopping her rabbit behind up on the stage during Jay and Alicia’s VMA performance, but she then goes on the Tyra show to say that she didn’t plan on doing it….it was just a spontaneous moment in which she was overwhelmed by the song “Empire State of Mind”….that she would like to work with both Jay and Alicia…

LO-damnL!  Does she really believe that two hip-hop/r&b heavies would associate themselves with her and her lip gloss?  Big Mama come get your child!  It’s sad that she would crash the stage, and it’s pathetic that she would be inspired by Kanye’s dumb ass to do so in the first place. What a bird-brain!

Loser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Loser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oscar Red Carpet Fashion….Part Deux

Posted in Award Shows, Beyonce Kowles, fashion, Funky Fashion Faux Pas, red carpet with tags , , , , , , on February 23, 2009 by Kenya

For every well dressed red carpet walker, there’s a couple who should have stayed home.  It pains me to say that Jada Pinkett was a definite dissapointment in Roberto Cavalli Resort.  This gown would have been ab-fab if it fit.  Jada is a tiny woman, and this gown just seems to swallow her up.  There is no evidence that Jada has a waist, and she could have used the services of a tailor to have it altered.  As it stands, she should have left it in the closet. 

Jada I know you're in there somewhere!

Am I the only one who’s too through with Beyonce’s obsession with Mermaid Couture?  You can always count on this one to show up on the red carpet in something that sparkles, looks cheap, or has mermaid fins, or in most cases…all three! 

 

Beyonce loves all things metalic, tight, and fishy!

Now I’m not saying the dress is hopeless, like alot of others are,  because I can see the potential, so I’m going to give it a re-mix.  It seemed that every gown on the red carpet was floor length.  Cut the mermaid fins off, and bring the length to just under the knees, and I believe it would have looked alot better.  The pattern seems to be too damn much.  One rule to remember when wearing patterns, is that if your a small woman, keep the pattern small.  This dress could have worked if it were shorter.  I’m also glad she passed up that horrible “Sasha” hair don’t, but some chandelier earrings, and maybe a gold cuff  would have balanced her out nicely.  Oh and lose the robot pose already!

Oscar’s Red Carpet Fashion

Posted in Ab-Fab!, Award Shows, fashion, red carpet, Taraji P. Henson with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 23, 2009 by Kenya

I don’t care about the Oscar’s, or should I say, I don’t care about watching the Oscars.  However, I’m awfully interested in knowing what everyone was wearing.  You know I love to give my two cents on celebrity fashion, so here we go….

Taraji and Viola took my breath away.  I really liked the gold  Reem Acra on Viola, as gold compliments women who wear a darker shade of skin, in my opinion.  Although we just saw Taraji kill in a white red carpet gown, she definitely shook it up with this tiered gown by Roberto Cavali, and I love the luscious color of her clutch.  Although she didn’t get the trophy, she was still a winner!  Both ladies had flawless hair and makeup!

Viola and Taraji...LMAO @ Taraji coveting Oscar!

Alicia Keyes looked chic, and sexy in this gown by Armani Prive.  The color is exquisite on AK, and I even like her Jokeresque smile.

Queen Latifah certainly does know how to work with what she has.  She absolutely sparkles in this navy satin number with Swarovski embroidery by Georges Chakra.  I love Latifah…just because you have a larger frame doesn’t mean that you can’t look like royalty.  A def thumbs up!

Jay Z More Concerned About Rihanna Than His Own Wife.

Posted in Award Shows, Beyonce Kowles, It's a Damn Shame, Jay Z with tags , , , on February 18, 2009 by Kenya

It just occured to me that Jay Z is more concerened with Rihanna’s welfare, than his own wife.  I don’t know if  it’s me or what, but I just don’t think that Jay Z genuinely cares for Beyonce, his wife of  less than a year. 

Jay Z recently asked fans to think of Rihanna as their mother and sister when asked about his reaction to the tragedy that ensued over the Grammy weekend.  Of course sources say he was concerened, as I’m sure he feels very protective of her being that he discovered and mentored her.  What I don’t get is how he could have such concern for Rihanna, but treat his own wife like this

My first question is why he got in ahead of her, and didn’t even scoot over so that she could get in?  Why did she have to get in the car on the street side?  You mark my words, this marriage is a sham, con, fake, etc…

Working the Red Carpet @ the NAACP Image Awards Pre-Show

Posted in Ab-Fab!, Angela Simmons, Award Shows, fashion, red carpet, Taraji P. Henson, Tatyana Ali, Vanessa Simmons with tags , , , , , , , , on February 12, 2009 by Kenya

These lovely ladies continue to put their foots in fashion, well except Angela Simmons, who just can’t seem to find her way through the fashion jungle.  I have hope for her yet, and I think that as she matures, she’s going to find her look, however this just isn’t it.  I’ve alway thought Angela was pretty cute, but all that hair isn’t going to cut it.  I don’t like the jumpsuit’s plunging neckline, and the fact that her bra is showing.  The whole thing just looks ill-fitting.  As her older, and more stylish sister, Vanessa needs to take Angie under her stylish wing.

 

Keep trying, one day you will get it right.

Keep trying, one day you will get it right.

Older sister Vanessa’s look is so 50’s, as evidenced by the skirt, meets rocker chick with the leather jacket.  She looks young, fresh, and fun.  I just wish I had a better look at those shoes, because they look like they may be FEROCIOUS! Anyway, this isn’t surprising, because I can’t remember a time when Vanessa didn’t bring her A-game.

Love the look Vanessa!

Love the look Vanessa!

Taraji killed it in her yellow/orange dress.  She looks like a walking flame, and a definite Oscar caliber actress!  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she will take it home.  She’s most definitely becoming more evolved with her fashion choices, as the dress, hair, and makeup are flawless.  I’m not all that crazy about the shoes, but I’ll overlook them.  Has she been getting style tips from another Oscar winning actress?

The dress is ab-fab, go on Taraji!

Look at Tatyana Ali looking gorgeous.  She doesn’t look that much different from when she played Will’s younger cousin on the Fresh Prince.  I like this dress on her.  It’s very age appropriate for the 30 year old actress/singer.  Once again, the shoes don’t inspire me, but she looks gorgeous.

Love Those Shoes…Solange!

Posted in Award Shows, Diva Wannabes, fashion, Love Those Shoes!, Solange Knowles with tags , , , , on February 10, 2009 by Kenya

Here’s Solange after the Grammy’s at Jay and Bey’s seemingly fave “after awards” hang -out, Katsuya.  Although big fake sis was MIA, Solange went to go hang out with brother-in-law, and friends.  Now what self respecting diva in training would carry her own umbrella?  I don’t know, but look at her booties…aren’t they the bees knees?  Good way to redeem herself  from that whole yellow/black/white thing she was wearing the other night.  I don’t think Solange has a chance in hell at being a bankable singer, but she could definitely model.  Something about her face is different, in a good way, and I just can’t put my finger on it.

Those booties are FEROCIOUS!

Grammy Fashion..The Good, Bad, and What In Hell?

Posted in Award Shows, Diddy, Funky Fashion Faux Pas, Jay Z, Jennifer Hudson, Keyshia Cole, Love Those Shoes!, red carpet, Solange Knowles with tags , , , , , on February 10, 2009 by Kenya

As we all know, The 51st Annual Grammy Awards went down lastnight in Los Angeles, and aside from the drama of the Brown Beatdown, there was some fashion drama on the red carpet.  Let’s take a look at what the best and brightest in the music industry graced the red carpet wearing. 

BTW…Beyonce was a no show, and she didn’t win the
Grammy.  I’m really surprised since she would show up at the opening of a door.  I think the clock is ticking on her popularity.

Chris Brown Knocked Rihanna Upside The Head?

Posted in Award Shows, Rihanna with tags , , , , , on February 9, 2009 by Kenya

I saw this on E! lastnight, but I thought the “Brown” they were referring to was Bobby Brown.  Anyway, the story is that Chris and Rihanna were in the Hancock Park neigborhood, when Chris assaulted her.  She named him as her attacker, and eventually he turned himself in.  Of course, nobody has confirmed that it was Rihanna, but given the jumpoff situation, and the fact that the two haven’t been pictured together lately, it’s safe to assume that the victim was Little Miss Sunshine. 

Well, at least she had enough sense to tell the police that he was the one who hit her.  I have nothing but disgust for a man who would put his hands on a woman, but doesn’t Rihanna look like she has a super slick tongue?  Anyway, both of them pulled out of their scheduled appearances at last night’s Grammy, and her reps haven’t denied it.   I guess both of them were there because she reportedly bit his abusive ass.  This makes me wonder if this is the first time he’s put his hands on her?

Rosario Poopiepants

Posted in Award Shows, fashion, Funky Fashion Faux Pas, red carpet, Rosario Dawson with tags , , , on January 26, 2009 by Kenya

For every Taraji, there’s bound to be a Rosario.  Rosario is one of the most inconsistent celebs out there.  Sometimes she hits the fashion mark, and sometimes she misses…by a mile.  Where do I begin?  The color is boring, and washes out her complexion. 

Check your drawers girl, I think you have a situation.

Check your drawers girl, I think you have a situation.

The fit is grossly unflattering, making her appear chunkier than she is, and it’s sagging below her butt.  Overall, not a good look!  But what’s really bad about it, is she looks as if she KNOWS she looks good!  Try again girl!
