Tag Your Friends!

March 7, 2009

Yeah so this little pic is going around facebook for people to tag their friends in and is causing quite a stir! Everyone wants to be tagged, but hardly ever are they pleased with how they’re tagged because it represents how they are viewed by their peers. I myself have been tagged a couple times in this and… well… I had to untag and retag myself so it was more fitting 🙂

Chris Brown wanted on alleged assault of a female.

February 9, 2009

Okay so for those of you who already heard the rumors of what went down in Barbados back in 2008, this may sound a little familiar, what with Chris Brown, a female compatriot, a car and an assault, so I’ll just skip that prior scenario and get into this current one.

According to The Insider:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say they’re investigating an alleged domestic violence felony battery report involving Chris Brown.

The police department says in a release the 19-year-old R&B singer and a woman were in a vehicle in the Hancock Park neighborhood early Sunday when they began arguing.

Police say Brown and the woman got out of the car and the argument escalated.

Police say the woman identified Brown as her attacker. Officers say Brown wasn’t at the scene.

A message left for Brown’s representative seeking comment wasn’t immediately returned.

Note the omission of the other party in question, believed to be Rihanna who was missing from the Grammy Awards Show 2009 after being involved in a ‘car accident’.

However The Insider in another article available online states:

In what may or may not be related news, “The Insider” confirms that pop singer Rihanna will not be performing at tonight’s Grammys following sustaining a bruised face in what sources called a car accident.

Coincidentally, Rihanna’s rumored boyfriend Chris Brown is under investigation for alleged domestic violence felony battery related to an alleged attack on a woman who he had been riding in a car with that sustained what police call “visible injuries.”

Sources at the Grammys tell “The Insider” that Rihanna’s face is slightly bruised and no announcement has been made as to who will be taking her place on stage. “We have just been informed that Rihanna will not be attending tonight’s 51st Annual Grammy Awards. We’re sorry she is unable to join us this evening,” The Recording Academy’s statement reads.

Related to the Brown investigation, police say Brown and the woman were in a vehicle in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles when, following an argument, the woman was allegedly injured, naming Brown as her attacker. When police arrived, they only found the woman; Brown had left. The Associated Press reported Sunday afternoon that police were still looking for the male R&B star.

Police say they received a 911 call related to the incident which occurred around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday. The LAPD is investigating the incident.

Rihanna and Brown were just photographed together at a Pre-Grammy party on Saturday night. Keep checking “The Insider” for more on this developing story.

This would be the biggest celebrity pop scandal for 2009 to date. With a new album in the works to promote, it keeps her name buzzing. You know what they say, there’s no such thing as bad publicity.

Of course we hope this is a misunderstanding, however reality being what it is… one never knows the true personalities of one’s celebidols and we really shouldn’t be quick to jump to conclusions until more details become available.

***Update***
So Access Hollywood is speaking definitively on the matter:

LOS ANGELES, Calif. —

Chris Brown has been charged with felony battery after an alleged violent incident on Saturday night, Access Hollywood has learned.

Earlier on Sunday, the LAPD was investigating Brown for assault following an alleged domestic violence felony battery against a woman reported to be the singer’s girlfriend, Rihanna, at 12:30 AM on Sunday in Los Angeles. Both Brown and Rihanna pulled out of Sunday evening’s Grammy Awards before the ceremony.

Brown turned himself in on Sunday evening, the LAPD confirmed to Access.

“At around 6:30 PM on February 8, 2009 R&B entertainer Chris Brown turned himself in to authorities at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Wilshire Division,” the LAPD said in a statement to Access. “Detectives investigating the alleged domestic violence felony battery booked him for criminal threats.”

According to his booking sheet, Brown was being held on a $50,000 bail under a felony charge. He has since been released.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the victim of the alleged assault was Rihanna, though the LAPD would not confirm that report.

“At the time the case is presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, additional charges may be filed. It will be up the LA County DA to review the case and determine which charge or charges will be most appropriate,” the LAPD noted.

Earlier, the LAPD confirmed to Access that the R&B singer and an undisclosed woman were in a vehicle on North June St. in the Hancock Park area of LA, where the victim claims an argument occurred. Brown allegedly stopped the car and the woman suffered “visible injuries” and identified the singer as her attacker.

“Mr. Brown is a suspect that we are looking for… we would definitely like to speak with him,” a spokesperson for the LAPD told Access on Sunday evening.

When contacted by Access on Sunday night, a rep for Rihanna said that the singer was “well.”

“Rihanna is well. Thank you for concern and support,” the rep said.

A rep for Chris Brown did not return calls from Access.

“We have just been informed that Rihanna will not be attending tonight’s 51st Annual Grammy Awards,” a Grammy rep confirmed to Access late Sunday afternoon. “We’re sorry she is unable to join us this evening.”

The rep issued a similar statement regarding Brown later in the evening.

“We have just been informed that Chris Brown will not be attending tonight’s 51st Annual Grammy Awards. We’re sorry he is unable to join us this evening,” the rep told Access.

On Saturday evening, the music couple walked the red carpet separately at the Grammy Salute to Industry Icons honoring Clive Davis at the Beverly Hilton, and they were later spotted smiling together inside the party.

Rihanna was set to perform and was nominated for three Grammys, while Brown was up for two awards at the ceremony.


ACF Fashion Weekend

October 26, 2008

Well I was unable to attend the first day due to unforeseen circumstances but I was able to make it on Sunday, October 26th and had a blast! Here’s what I had to say about the show.  Done on my HTC Wizard during the show.

The second night of the ACF fashion show featured designs from around the Caribbean as well as vocal stylings of local ‘singers’ and was tagged as Caribbean Icons night. The first designer was Millhouse of Trinidad; her designs were men’s casual linen clothes of a pure white nature.
The second designer of the night was a Barbadian designer by the name of Sharon James. Her designs were for the ladies and was a mixture of elegantly casual and cocktail dresses as well as some more formal eveninjg pieces.
Another designer who exhibited both men’s and women’s wear was featured, this time a Barbadian; Ricky  dé Jude whose clothes were also elegantly casual with some business inspired pieces thrown in the mix. The crowd response to the women’s clothes was particularly good.
Carol Cadogan Fox was given the Caribbean Icon Award.
Michelle Cole of Guyana was the fourth and final designer displaying her elegant and flowing gowns as well as some more tailored skirts. This all female collection was the largest, most diverse and best received collection of the evening.
The show was very well attended and the elegant backdrop of Lion Castle Polo Estate created an ambiance that which was simply tasteful and made all the snobs feel right at home lol. It was great, no lie.


The Countdown Is On!

July 17, 2008

Well folks, it’s 4 months until the big birthday bash for Superlative 1. This blog turns 1, and yours truly is celebrating the 2nd anniversary of his 21st Birthday.

For those of you who need a reminder, Click Here for a look at last year’s List of Approved Birthday Gifts. This year the list will be even more exclusive, and more extensive. Start saving kiddies.

Ah… here’s a hint… certain designers have made the list this year that were previously overlooked but the question is, in what category do they appear? Guess you’ll just have to wait to see who made the cut this year, why and how.


Shontelle’s New First Single

April 27, 2008

As things are with the music business, Barbadian beauty Shontelle’s debut single is T-Shirt; you can check it out on her official myspace page (Click here).

As many of you may recall, speculation was that it would be Naughty featuring Beenie Man which both performed earlier this year at the Barbados Music Awards. However, the late entry onto Shontelligence (written by Andrew Frampton who also wrote hits for Kylie Minogue and Natasha Bedingfield) has been gaining interest internationally and has won the hearts of music listeners and radio station execs alike. We wish Shontelle great success with Shontelligence and hope to see her walking down the Grammy red carpet next year. Can anyone say Best New Artist?

Above, pics of Shontelle looking simply stunning at the Red Carpet for R&B Live at Spotlight, NYC. (That’s actually her hair, not weave.)

New Favourite Song Alert!

March 10, 2008

I LOVE this song! Janet Jackson finally came back out with an album worth listening to. I guess JD had less input on this record *cough cough* Anyway, I am really feeling this song for next year’s Grammy for Best Dance Recording… Luckily there is neither the intelligibility nor lyrical depth clause in that category because it’s simply one verse repeated and as far as diction is concerned I present to you what (for a while at least) I thought she was saying.

“Strow bites make everything, sexy hurt! Shadows dancing on the wall… I wanna rock with you, lets and verbs… soft lit your body don’t ssss anything at all.”

Of course this isn’t one of her worst vocal performances to date (a la So Excited) so I shall let her go with a warning… open ya mouth and form them words!

February 11, 2008

Ah, Rihanna won a Grammy! After being nominated as an artist in 4 categories (her songs were nominated 6 times) She managed to win music’s most coveted prize at the 50th airing of the show.
