Hot Trend Alert: Boyfriend Jeans


Thank God for boyfriend jeans. Finally we can stop struggling to pour ourselves into skinny jean, and slip on denims that are comfortable, and don’t make us suck our  tummies in to the point of passing out. In a nutshell, it’s either literally a pair of guy’s jeans, or a pair of jeans that looks and fits like it was borrowed from a guy – loose fit, low rise, cuffed hems.

If the look is executed correctly, you can even come off looking sexier than you would in skinnies. All you have to do is pick a pair that fits and flatters you and match it with a variety of cute tops. For the desired sexy vibe, boyfriend jeans should be loose but fitted across the hips, and narrow and tapered in the leg. If your jeans are short enough, you won’t need to roll up the cuffs. But if they’re super long, you’ll need to cuff the bottoms. Roll them above your ankles if you’re wearing heels, or just below if you’re wearing flat sandals. Having your jeans drag along the ground is never a good look. (more…)

Rihanna Curses Out Fan On Twitter

Twitter is the devil. I said it before and I’ll say it again. Twitter is the devil. Rihanna unveiled the cover art for her next single “Man Down” via her twitter yesterday. Upon viewing the pic, @NinyaBella,  a pseudo fan, was more focused on her hair in the photo than her actual choice for the next single and had this to tweet:

Well, little Miss Rih Rih was having none of that and promptly fired off her reply: (more…)

Rihanna Covers Rolling Stone

I had all but written off Rolling Stone magazine after their last issue featured Jersey Shore’s Snooki on the cover. This time around they feature Rihanna who manages to look sizzling hot as usual. My only problem is she seems to be trying too hard with this good girl gone bad routine. I miss the Pon De Replay Riri…

On the cover of this week’s Rolling Stone (on newsstands Friday (April 1st), Rihanna looks disapprovingly over her shoulder at photographer Mark Seliger’s camera. She wears delicately tattered, barely there shorts made of a fragile material called chainmail — tiny metal squares linked together to form clothing that looks almost painted on. She told her 4 million followers on Twitter that before she put the shorts on she had to heat up the cold metal links with a blow dryer.

She definitely kept it spicy during her cover story while dishing on her sexual fantasies…can someone say TMI??? She likes to be spanked and dominated in the sheets which she contributes to childhood abuse. She also discussed her dysfunctional relationship with her father, as well as why she had the restraining order against Chris Brown lifted: (more…)

Rihanna Covers Vogue April 2011

Rihanna is featured on the cover of the April 2011 issue of Vogue. Shot by Annie Leibovitz, Rihanna looks unsurprisingly gorgeous. The only issue I have with her is the red hair. It just refuses to grow on me. I think it makes her look a bit cartoonish. I hated Angeline Jolie’s December cover but loved the shoot itself. In Rihanna’s case, I love the cover but feel Leibovitz could have done more with the shoot itself because, let’s face it, Rihanna is a very photogenic girl. They could have pushed the envelope a bit more.

In the issue, she talks about how fame has shaped her for better or worse. The surprising part is that she really tears into her dad:

“It really makes me question what I have become to my father. Like, what do I even mean to him?” “It’s really strange. That’s the only word I can think of to describe it, because you grow up with your father, you know him, you are part of him for goodness’ sakes! (more…)

A Chat With Rihanna’s Dad

It’s interesting when we’re able to get a peek into the life of a celebrity before they got famous. The Sun has an interesting interview with Rihanna’s dad, Ronald Fenty, who still sells clothes out of  his car. He spoke about Rihanna’s talent, her sales skills, how he currently feels about Chris Brown and his drug addiction. He also reveals that she didn’t have to get anything surgically enhanced because she was already the “complete package”. You can’t say he’s not proud of his girl…

On Rihanna’s singing ability
The first time I heard her sing she was three years old, lying on her bed with a hairbrush for a microphone. Then, when she was seven, I heard her singing with our neighbor and I was amazed. She was doing the Aladdin song A Whole New World – it was so pretty I couldn’t believe it. I made sure she went to school and did well. She liked to dance and had natural rhythm but she wasn’t doing all the school productions and stuff. So her success came a bit out of the blue. She was the youngest girl to take part in a talent pageant at her high school. All the other girls were 17, but she won. Shortly afterwards she was discovered and the rest is history. (more…)

Whistle Blower For Peace

Ciara was spotted at the airport as she headed home from her vacation in Miami. She wore a Falling Whistle around her neck in support of a nonprofit campaign for peace and aid for children in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo, Falling Whistles. The child soldiers who are too small to hold guns are given whistles and are put on the front lines. Their job is to blow a whistle to let everyone know when the enemy is coming, so they are the first ones killed.

Falling Whistles is a small window into our world’s largest war.

Over a year ago, laying in Titu Prison, 5 boy-prisoners spoke of the whistleblowers.

Abducted in Congo and too small to carry a gun, boys were given merely a whistle and sent to the front lines of battle.

The sound of their whistles calling together was meant to frighten the enemy away. Failing that, their sole duty was to receive the bullets with their bodies. (more…)
