Jessie J

Comic Relief was last night, which meant people with the kindness of their hearts did something funny to raise money for charity. Lets just say, not everyone went to the extreme that UK singer Jessie J did which, was shaving her hair completely off for comic relief (WOW).

The price Tag singer said that having no hair was the ‘Weirdest feeling’ and proudly owned the shaven look with no regrets on BBC live show. The singer had previously visited some of the charities that Comic relief helped which clearly hit home. This was apparently one of the reasons to why she gladly wanted to shave her hair.

Jessie J

 

Personally i think Jessie J rocks the shaven look rather well…

Last week was the launch of Ri Ri’s new River island clothing line, therefore loads of fans were excited to try on the urban gear in London. Luckily for one fan, who was whisked away to a dressing room, where she was encouraged to try on a few pieces of the Rihanna’s line, Rihanna arrived and surprisingly waited outside her changing room ? Imagine your favourite designer waiting outside your changing room ?

Lets just say the fan named Maneira opened her dressing room with Rihanna instantly greeting her saying ‘Oh my god, your wearing the same as me’. Rihanna definitely made a dream come true that day.

I was hoping for a come back from the bad bitch female rapper, Lil Kim, but i reckon the whole plastic surgery antics has without a doubt drawn, so much more attention away from her music and towards her new look. The rapper who previously made a public beef with ‘Nicki Minaj’, was spotted in New York City wearing a huge fur coat over her black leather dress. The rapper was spotted heading to MTV studios to film Rap Fix Live.

Lil Kim

 

The rapper had her hair loose, with her makeup properly done with her red lipstick and her usual fake eyelashes. I’t seems like the rapper isn’t to confident about her plastic surgery ways – when being asked about the subject by Power 105.1’s breakfast she responded : ”Why would you ask me that?’  (AWKWARD)

In fact we’ve had so many rumours on Kim’s plastic surgery and what people think about the huge change – if anything we’ve had a lot of mixed feelings with her fans about the way she looks (As long as she likes it thats all that matters) – But my question is, seriously what do you think of Lil Kim’s new face, are her ride or die fans still ride or die ?

Bajan singer, Rihanna who recently flew over to London to launch her River Island collection plus partied it up in DSTRKT till 2am, gave her fans an eye full, when the star decided to continue her usual saucy antics by uploading an image via Instagram, in her bathroom wearing her CUSTOM made boots held by suspender-type belt, wearing ONLY her white thong.

Riri

 

The singer showed of her figure whilst also thanking Prada’s boss lady Miuccia Prada herself, for the boots.

The singer wrote on twitter:

‘Gotcha b***h tip toeing on my marble flo’!!! Sick a** custom Prada boots! Miuccia you RULE!!! Thanks you’

Not only did Rihanna do a sexy photo shoot for Elle UK magazine, but she also opened up about her debut single ‘ stay’, talked about Chris brown and also discussed her mothers reaction after her best friend Melissa posted a few nude pictures of Rihanna on Instagram ! (Awkward)

The Bajan singer clearly followed the monochrome trend this year, with the singer wearing either white or black within the shoots.

On ‘Stay’ being very personal to her:
Stay [new single] is a story about having love that close and wanting it to last forever. You don’t have that feeling with everybody so when you have it you don’t want to let go of it. I would definitely say that he [Chris Brown] is the one I have that kind of relationship with.

On what made her forgive Chris:
I have my own reasons, very very private reasons. Very personal. A lot of things. Bottom line is, I know him. I had a lot to think about and I had a lot of time to think about it.

On having a fresh start with Chris:
Right now that’s just what we want, a great friendship that’s unbreakable. Now that we’re adults we can do this right. We got a fresh start and I’m thankful for that.

On her gun tattoo:
Everybody wanted to know what was happening in my life. Is she a drug addict? No. Is she an alcoholic? No. Is she a victim? No. That’s when I got the gun. It was a symbol of strength. I’ll never be a victim.

On wanting fans to know her truth:
That’s why I’m posting pictures of myself smoking pot, to tell the truth about myself. I’ve got so much to think about, why bring all this extra sh-t by being dishonest?’

On where she’d like to be in five years:
I will probably have a kid. And I’m praying I can go on vacation for a good month. And I’ll have set some things up so I don’t have to tour for the rest of my life, even though I love touring. I want health and happiness in five years. I want to be healthy and happy.

On Instagram
Well I instagram everything about my life, whether it’s smoking pot, in a strip club, reading a Bible verse – how crazy, I know! – or hanging out with my best friend, who happens to be Chris.

On her mom’s reaction to her naked pics on Instagram
I’m not afraid of any person in this world but her. I’m terrified of her! She called me two days ago and reeled me in about two naked pictures Melissa [her best friend] put up on Instagram – a sneak-peek from a photo book she’s making about me. My mom, she went crazy on me. I was like embarrassed. I felt like I got my ass whupped in front of my class in school! She said, ‘This was like a private moment and you’re just parading this around. She humbled the f*** out of me.

FEATURE : TWITTER FASHION

February 27, 2013

Ask yourself this; are you making money from Twitter? (Thought not) Do you have a working profession with Twitter? (Doubt it) then why do people feel the need to allow a social network to have such a huge impact towards their life? With twitter you have groups….

We have twitter gangsters – who think typing through a keyboard tweeting gang signs and cussing people they don’t know, will gain them respect … No. The truth is, those people are probably so quiet and timid in person, that not being able to express how they really feel in human form (Because they are so weak) has influenced them emotionally, by TYPING their anger through a keyboard, relieving them on getting excited by looking at a screen furthermore being ‘bad’ … Mate, who cares get a Councilor.

Online gangster

Two we have Racism, – Black, white, mixed race, Asian; I’m sick and tired of reading and seeing all these ‘On screen gangster’s’ cussing different races. In fact there was one example I saw which I found hilarious, a topic to do with black girls (of course), the joke of it was, the topic started of because of black guys, (LOL). I am not a preacher so I’m not even going to get into this subject because of how sensitive the topic is, but for the guys who think its okay to cuss thier own colour, sorry to bring up slavery but if you was put into a category (yes I’m talking about the light skin guys to) you would be put in the ‘Black group’ so god knows, how this anger towards black girls even started but anyway pets please inform your sisters, mothers and fathers on how exactly you feel towards black girls – No ones forcing you to be with a black girl, everyone has their own type so don’t get it twisted, but cussing a black girl and making it a trending topic is to be honest WEAK, I think its pretty funny how people feel the need to cuss a certain race to look good because of a ‘social network’.  (You look dumb) By the way this was the first example that come to my head so don’t get too emotional.

Racism

Three we have fake friendships/relationships – Think about it this way, if you needed someone at three o clock on a rainy morning, I doubt the people you beg friend via twitter and claim are your best friends, will leave their nice warm bed at that time, in the rain to come and see if your okay… In fact expect a no reply.

friendship

Four we have twitter celebs – The majority of people hilariously think that, if they have more than 5,000 followers that their more relevant, fact is delete your twitter and see how many people remember you then J

twitter

Five we have suicidal tweets and the recycled tweets – We all go through things, and yes, twitter you can tweet what ever you like, but sometimes certain things SHOULD NOT, I repeat should not be tweeted, I know its twitter and everything but not every little thing needs to be tweeted, I’m sure there is a life outside of twitter were you can break down and act suicidal without the whole world knowing… Oh yeah, people repeating the SAME TOPIC OVER ND OVER AGAIN *YAWN

suicidal

But yeah, I’m rumbling on and getting a tad bored, however it’s just funny how people impact their whole lives because of twitter … the funniest thing is … you aren’t even getting money from it (LOOOOOL). But yeah team GANGSTER!! WOOP WOOP.

If thats you .. lol oopsie but thats sad mate.

Our currently most talked about couple Kanye and Kim, decided to give their fans a little more insight than what they should have – when the couple posed it up in the cover of French magazine L’Officiel Hommes. The couple. who weren’t really wearing any clothes, looked like they were practically having sex on the cover .. cute or tacky ? You tell me.

Cover shoot

 

The couple, who are both expecting a baby girl this year, have without a doubt been full of surprises this year. This cover only just shows us that the item are TBH (to be honest), stronger than ever – So the public gossips and Ex husband issue Kim is dealing with, is clearly not affecting either of them… Awww.

Everyones got some sort of role model or person they look up to – I thought today i should give the bitching and gossiping ( Only for today) a rest and maybe look at how someone as big as Necole made it big especially with her blogging and everything. How hard work ALWAYS does pay off.

The celebrity blogger recently updated a personal blog about her life… Lets read…

Necole bitchie

” It’s been exactly five years since I started my website NecoleBitchie.com and I have been taking a lot of time to reflect on, not only how far I’ve come on this journey, but where I want to go. Sometimes when you are on the brink of thinking that you’ve made it, you have to take a step back and realize that there is so much more work to do and that your purpose may be far bigger than what you originally imagined.

Those of you who have been reading this site since the beginning have seen it go through so many changes and that has been a direct reflection of my growth as well as the transitions I was going through in my life. I’ve grown a lot as a person in these last five years, but I’ve also struggled a lot behind the scenes, while trying to maintain a blog and a business that was growing faster than I was. In the midst of that, I was working on fixing things in my own life, however, no matter what I was going through, I was dedicated to continue to get up every day, keep the site updated, and finish what I started.

Looking back, the biggest struggle I believe I have had to deal with over the past two years was choosing what content to put on the site — being aware of what I am feeding my audience. Is it always negative? How do I balance all of the negativity that’s on the Internet with more positive posts that provoke discussion? How are younger girls who visit the site being influenced by what they read? Am I part of the problem or am I going to be a part of the solution? It’s difficult to write about fighting, cheating, lying, beefing, and a lot of the drama that goes on in the entertainment and reality TV world every single day and expect to live a positive well-balanced life when you walk away from your computer screen.  There have been times I’ve clocked out completely and didn’t want to do this anymore but at some point I realized that you have to be the change you seek.  It has to start somewhere.

I am still finding my voice.  I’m also still finding my place in this online space as it continues to change and I appreciate your patience during this time. My hope is that as time goes by, when you log on to the site, there will be a few posts on the homepage, whether it’s on relationships, friendships, music etc., that makes you think about something that you may be going through at the time and it may bring some sort of clarity.

Although the site is celebrity-driven, my overall goal has always been to push the story behind the site.  I felt like I had absolutely nothing when I started this: no money, I had lost my parents, I didn’t have a permanent place to live and I felt like I was at the end of my road. I didn’t have an extraordinary talent: I couldn’t dance, I couldn’t sing or rap, but I had access to what every person who is reading this today has access to, and that’s a computer and the Internet. And with those two tools and my perseverance and a vision, I made a better life for myself.  If I can make my dreams happen, just know that no matter what you are going through in your life at this very moment, you can too!

With that being said, I sat down with Bryan Cain-Jackson a few weeks ago over at the Huffington Post, and in the midst of talking to him about this amazing book “The Dream Giver” that I chose for my new book club, we began a really good conversation regarding life and the sacrifices that you have to make in order for your dreams to come true. ”

Interview below :

Bryan: What are some of your most important childhood memories that led you to being the woman that you are today?

Necole: My mother worked so hard, so I spend a lot of time with my grandmother. She was the first business owner that I ever knew. My grandmother owned a barber shop and she cut men’s hair all day. I felt some type of power in that. She was sitting there and she’d laugh a thunderous laugh all day and they admired her. They’d come in everyday and pile into her shop and talk about the latest. She really guided my steps. I was 16 when she passed away — I was lost after that.

When a tragedy takes place, we’re lost. Tragedy places a person at a position of needing to decide what their next move is going to be. Who was Necole Bitchie at that time of being at a crossroad?
You know how a stage play has three acts? I feel like in my life right now, I’m on the fourth act. Right after my mom had passed I had lost everything that I felt was important in my life. I was going to a job everyday and I was in school, which was when I was at a crossroad. That’s when I had an epiphany. I received an email from a lady that was basically saying that we shouldn’t be held down by material things. We want to achieve certain goals, but we have a car payment or we have to make the rent — we have all of these material things that really don’t matter and are holding us down to going into that job every day. I started to think about how true this was. I don’t have any kids, I’m still young, so why am I working so hard every day and who am I working hard for? I’m definitely not working this hard to pay a car payment. Two weeks later, I started selling all of my furniture. I left school in my last semester, I quit my job and I was headed to Detroit.

Why Detroit? What was there?
I chose Detroit, not because I had a plan — it was a place where I didn’t know anybody. I felt like that was the best place to get to know myself and really find out who I was.

What did you do once you were there?
Initially, I was in the entertainment industry — I found an internship opportunity. My drive is pretty intense; so once I was out there I was moving pretty quickly.

You were meant to be a free spirit, not held down to commitments that don’t seem as pivotal to the direction your life is going in.
Exactly. I’ve spoken to a woman who didn’t go after her dreams because she was worried about what she was going to do with her house full of furniture. Really? You’re going to let a house full of furniture stop you from following your dreams? If you said a husband and a child then I get it — but, you’re not sure what to do with your furniture? I sold everything for $700 and just kept it moving, I couldn’t let that hold me back from achieving what’s right for me in my life.

Wow, Necole. You have redefined the meaning of the word fearless in a few different respects.
I do have to say this though — there are going to be moments of discomfort in your life because there is going to be a struggle. There will be times where you have to sleep on other people’s couches and that will take away your pride. You’ll be asking those friends to use their couches while they are doing their routine of going to and from work and they’re moving up, all the while you’re struggling.

You swallowed your pride and made sacrifices to achieve what you wanted. That’s truly inspiring.
I did the sleeping on couches; I was always in a different state whenever someone called me. I didn’t have a place. They all looked at me as though I didn’t have myself together. But, look at me now because of that sense of sacrifice. I say that because when people don’t see a return on their going out on a limb and going for their dreams immediately — like if they don’t see results in three months, they’re ready to stop trying and go back to the land of familiar. It takes time to get that breakthrough.
