10 years after the Notorious B.I.G's death & his memory still haunts his widow, the once rnb Bad Boy recording artist Faith Evans.
Earlier this week, a lawsuit was filled against FayFay (as Biggie used to call her) because of a contracted agreement between her & Kaushi Entertainment to release home videos of the late rapper. Faith was given 30k for footage of Biggie for a documentary which Kaushi now reports never to have received. How much is she being sued for? 1million dollars! & if you are at ALL familiar with what became of her after Biggie & after Bad Boy - she was recently arrested alongside her current husband for possession of illegal drugs!
The first lady of Young Money, Nicki Minaj has been reviving the hype for female rappers! She's focused so much on doing so that she's in no rush to drop an album :
"I think with an album just like with my mixtapes and all the stuff I do i never
like to rush it,people don't even remember what a female rapper does...we're so
not used to it...its non-existent...I have to work them up to accepting a female
rapper again, accepting the music and my style and then the album will come."
I couldn't had agreed more with the Harajuku raptress - the female rap genre & mc as we know it have been on a major decline.
- Lil' Kim's latest feature efforts at rap just AREN'T the same.
- Remy Ma "Had One hot Song" ok maybe 2 before being arrested (Free Remy!)
- Foxy Brown hasn't done anything new in ages but i hear shes on Luda's upcoming album "Battle of the Sexes"
- Eve - who?
- Trina is releasing an album
but no one has buzz like Nicki! This comment that she's in no rush for a album release contradicts Sean Garett's earlier comment this week claiming that new SOLO material is to soon be expected from her... hmm lets see what happens.
One thing i know this DOES NOT mean is that she wouldn't be doing anymore feature's because Yup, she did it again. Via Twitter both her & Bobby Valentino leaked their latest collabo "Stiletto's & a T-Shirt"
I know a bit about who you are , but let my readers know more about who u are, what you do & where you're from?
We're visionary artists from Boston, MA. We craft our visions into realities. We're actually using our hands for this particular vision, our new collection
How did you get into designing?
Well we're artist, so this is nothing we "got into" per say, you're born with the itch in your palms and vision in your mind to create things. Not much of a choice...
Robot&Brucling - How did the name come up? & why bowties?
Lol, the name was born from friends who gave us nicknames as jokes at different points in time. We were working on our own collections separately, yet always together and in church praying for direction and agreement. We decided to work together. We both love bow-ties and have been wearing them for years, long before they were trendy. So, naturally we wanted to start our label with one of our favorite accessories.
You know I LOVE your bowties designs - what else can we expect from the first of many lines?
Brucling: expect the unexpected!
Robot: originality and passion-
Do you ever plan on branching out into clothing and other accessory design?
How can we not? Vision has no end..., not for us at least...
What do YOU like most about designing?
Brucling:Having freedom of expression and sharing vision with the world
Robot: The unbiased relationship I have with my passion and thoughts through to completion
Celebrity endorsement being a big part of branding now a days, who would you like to see in your bowties?
There are so many we'd love to see wearing them, not even for endorsement, the endorsement comes with the love put into the design and construction of each piece. But! Lol, LeBron James, Sean Combs, Janelle Monae, George Clooney, Ellen DeGeneres, and Gwen Stefani. But plenty more...
Blog sites - a huge up coming form of media. What d you think about them? Any blogs you enjoy? What about Liife&Such :-)
They're important! The new soap-box if you will... Lol. Of course we enjoy Liife&Such! Besides that there are too many to name.
So in all my interviews I like to keep it fun so I add a lil portion of fun questions; here it goes
Dior or Prada? Which one?
Robot: Valentino Couture, Lanvin for Men's RTW & Hermes leather goods
Brucling: Alexander McQueen [rip]
Favorite men's fragrance?
Robot: which ever one makes me feel best for the occasion.
Brucling: I'm addicted to Tom Ford as of right now.
Do you celebrate Valentines?
Brucling: Yes I valentines day is everyday for me
Who inspires you in liife?
Robot: The unknown individual that God wants me to be. And my mommy of course
Brucling: God and my mom inspire me
Twitter or Facebook
Brucling: Facebook, but I love my twitter followers.
I see so much success in these guys future - their style is impecable & their design execution is FANTASTIC! Their clean cut, their new faces, their Robot&Brucling! Below are some sample pictures to their designs!
"It's crazy knowing that the biggest star in the world was inspired by me," says Starlight. The NYC based go-go dancing DJ, who knew GaGa as Stefani & convinced her that trousers were a thing of the past.
If you follow Lady GaGa's career you know that before rising to fame her & Lady Starlight were the best of friends and even performed together. They met via mutual friends in the underground NYC club scene, & teamed up afterwards calling their shows; ''The Lady GaGa & Starlight review."
Thankfully GaGa knows her roots & has always shown her love & appreciation for the now 34 year old DJ. & starlight has this to say about it:
"My style, performance art and DJing inspired her persona. Now she's
gone on to become a global phenomenon and I'm so proud."
“(Matt) really wanted to do something nice for Rihanna this year since she didn’t have much of a 21st
birthday last year,” says one source. According to the insider, Kemp originally
wanted to throw Rihanna a surprise party, but eventually Rihanna caught on and now
knows there will be a small get-together."
Nicki Minaj is the latest covergirl for Fader magazine where she talks about her animated persona, rhyme skills, & new found success!
Super cutie, super model Chanel Iman has BLOWN up in the past year from multiple magazine covers to walking for Victoria Secret!
So it comes to no surprise that she graces the cover of Modelina's 1st edition magazine! Good Job girl!
He Performed a set of songs but had some audience inconvenience during his Acoustic performance of his hit song "What'd ya Want from Me?" Watch:
Yes, Adam had to ask a girl to get off her phone followed by a "ugh wtf bitch" look on his face! Lol Priceless!

The stylish Kardashian sisters took the no brainer decision than to partner up with sexy womens wear line BeBe to create their own line!
The line made its debut at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week here in NYC. This line is def for the chic fashionistas looking to to have that Kard-ASS-hian look. The line seems to consist's of dresses, jackets & shoes all ready to wear pieces for soicalites every where!
PS the models looked washed up...i wouldda prefered seing Kim, Khloe & Kourt walk that runway, im just sayin'
"She's [Lady GaGa] pretty much retired me! She was definitely a
blessing. She came at the right moment. I'm glad I believed in her, boy. That
goes to show you, if you believe in something strong enough, it will pay off."
Homie to Liife&Such, G's to Gent cast member E6 been coming hard on RECORD! Not so long ago another one of the show's cast member had reports on him, but not for anything gentlemanly. Kaysan was arrested for breaking his daughters bones in both her arms & legs.
As a father, E6 aka e60million vented the best way he knows how - recorded a full blown song showing his disgust for Kay's actions. Listen to the song below, what do yall think? hit E6 up on twitter (twitter.com/iame6) and let him know how ya feel about the record - tell him Jadore sent'chall over

While the tents went up for fashion week here in New York & everyone anticipated McQueens newest line, 'Mc-Q' that was sceduled to show yesterday... over in London the 40 year old designer's body was found dead at his apartment.
Police have not released details yet but it was confirmed NOT a homicide...possible suicide? However it was that his life came to an end...he shall be missed. His style, his clothes, his fashion will live on.

The international pop star recently filmed the video to her 3 single; Rude Boy. The video is very colorful & "rasta"-heavy. Think Fresh Prince of Bel-Air hat colors, lions, Jamaica & gyrating hips! Although not the most polished dancer - you can see she probably used to THROW DOWN at house parties!
Although the Single cover is much more sexy than the video, its a diff direction. Good try, but id leave that all to M.I.A
Here's the video brought to you by ONSMASH!
One thing I'm having an issue with RiRi on this album and her overall direction is, its quite forgettable. All of the songs, singles and videos. This Edged out persona she brought about during the end of her Good Girl Gone Bad ride either needs to go away and she needs to reinvent herself... or she needs to be innovative. Its the same thing I'm getting from breakout star KE$HA - cute songs, hot image but how long could YOU keep this up? I feel as though RiRi needs to release a diss record or suttn or imma dub her "BAD GIRL GONE GOOD!" Now we need a ballad off Rated R - bring on the PHOTOGRAPHS
Ray J: “Who you think got all these girls talking bout Kim for?
And I know she with Reggie Bush, But that was Ray J’s bush, She used to blow it,
used to blow it like Ray J’s Kush…”
