TLC’S CHILLI IS 44 AND ABTASTIC.

She will be turning 45 on February 27 and Rozondo “Chilli” Thomas(a member of RnB group TLC) is letting us know that gone are the days when getting older meant getting flabbier.

VANITY FAIR ADVOCATES FOR WOMEN IN THEIR 2016 HOLLYWOOD ISSUE.

They’ve spoken about equality, diversity, sexism, equal pay and many other issues affecting women in Hollywood so it’s only right for Vanity Fair to feature Viola Davis, Kate Blanchett, Jane Fonda, Jennifer Lawrence and nine other finest and fiercest ladies in Hollywood for their 2016 annual Hollywood Issue, making it an all-women cover. In addition to these powerful ladies who appear infront of the Vanity Fair sign, Lupita Nyong’o(making her 2nd appearance for the annual issue), Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Diane Keaton, Helen Mirren, Brie Larson, Charlotte Rampling, Rachael Weisz, Alicia Vikander and Saoirse Ronan all dazzle in black on the annual editorial photographed by the renowned Annie Leibovitz. The photographer who has covered the Hollywood Issue for several years, also for the first time did portraits of the actresses, capturing them in their raw beauty. Here are some shots. Ok Jennifer Lawrence, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Jane Fonda, do you ladies wake up like this every morning? I thought raw beauty meant exactly that and not natural makeup beauty(still love you ladies). Anyway, I applaud Viola and Lupita for embracing their raw beauty and sharing it to the world.And bravo to Diane Keating for staying true to her chic androgynous bad mama jama self. All round beautiful cover. The ladies also spoke to the VF team about their legacies in the video...

PICTURE OF THE MONTH:AMBER ROSE AND KIM KARDASHIAN.

They say picture say a thousand words, this says gazillion.Now this is some finger-licking juicy plot twist. It feels like it was only two seconds ago that Kim’s husband Kanye West queened out on Amber’s ex-husband Wiz Khalifa on twitter and spouses and ex-spouses and children and ancestors got dragged into the online shirt-shredding squabble…you get my drift and many unmentionable adjectives were used. So I was just doing my usual morning ritual, scrolling on Instagram and then I saw this picture on Amber Rose’s page with the caption ‘swingers’ and instantly thought it was a joke then went to dig more and realised Kim Kardashian also posted it on her page…wowcha…peace in the Middleeast. She even captioned it ‘Tea anyone?‘ Tea?…it’s dripping all over my onesie love. Once again the queens of the net who happen to share the same birthday, have schooled us on how to break the internet. Many thanks to momager Kris, she teaches well, her students are excellent, she deserves a Hollywood star. Meanwhile Kanye is in a studio somewhere screaming ‘ma chicks baad, ma chicks hood, ma chicks do shit that your chicks wouldn’t do…dum…tudum…tudum…tududududum…’   Now that this is ‘sorted’, what’s gonna happen to Amber’s bestie Chyna and the other K situation? We know that tea is brewing. If that gets sorted, I’d personally cement the Hollywood star for Kris...

MOVIE TRAILER:HAPPINESS IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD.

I stumbled upon this movie trailer while doing my usual research for the blog and I must say I’m happy I did. Any movie about love(and its complexities) is my thing. Then throw in some couture pieces and some hawt guys…woo Happiness Is A Four-Letter Word is based on the novel of the same name by South African author,Cynthia Jele, a winner of the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize 2011 and a 2011 M-Net Literary Award winner. The movie is set in Johannesburg, South Africa and centres around three friends who on the outside, seem to be living the fabulous life. Nandi, the lawyer, Zaza, the trophy wife and Princes, the art gallery owner seem seem to have it all but why ain’t they happy? The friends will have to untangle the true meaning of happiness and will do everything in their power to find it. I follow the Khanyi Mbau on Instagram, the actress who plays Zaza. She used to be married to a wealthy older man and at that time some people branded her a gold-digger. In playing the role of Zaza, Khanyi said; “Zaza is married to a wealthy older man to sustain her expensive lifestyle. She’s not married for love but for the money,”… “When I was younger, I lived such a life as I didn’t know what love was. I thought it was being bought a sports car, living in a mansion and buying designer clothes.” That’s like reliving the past, isn’t it? I’m sure it must have been hard for her but at the same time very powerful knowing that she left that life behind....

It takes a ginormous amount of courage to bare it all but when living in a world where it becomes clear that positivity is the only energy one must spread, we then come together in all shapes, sizes, races, genders and pose in our “birthday suits”…that’s exactly what thirteen courageous Torontonians did for NOW magazine, a free alternative newspaper in Toronto, Canada. To kick off 2016, Now Mag Toronto put body shaming in its rightful place( the naughty corner) by releasing a Love Your Body issue.

NEW MUSIC VIDEO: YOURS BY STANLEY ENOW FT ICE PRINCE.

I remember William Takor teasing us on twitter with Stanley Enow’s pictures, posting sneak peaks of his videos, talking about this major star about to hit the music scene. I remember getting really excited to see what the hype was all about and BOOM!!! Hien Pere was released and the whole nation exploded. The single was well-received and became an instant hit. Cameroonians clearly put their differences aside(which rarely happens) and embraced a song that everyone could easily identify with. With melidious beats and interesting slangs, Hein Pere quickly became a feel-good anthem of hope especially among youths. With an undeniable energy,the rap song, like a whirlwind, spread across Africa and with that brought about international recognition including an award for Best New Act at the 2014 MTV MAMA. It’s not just about the song for me, it’s more about the video and Stanley delivered everytime. Where he lacked in lyrics, he made up bigtime with a cleancut modern visuals…and features from top African stars.I’m totally impressed Yours is the 12th track from his debut Soldier Like Ma Papa, which was released on July 25, 2015 and worldwide on September 11, 2015. Stanley Enow is a strategist, he’s a boss, he is the bizniz…man. The world is Yours, go for...
