Rihanna Does 80's Punk Rock Look in London

Rihanna spotted leaving her hotel in London yesterday and check out her outfit. I don't know about you, but I love it.  Rihanna does sort of an 80's punk rock look mixing two jean shirts, wearing one and putting the other around her waist, bedazzled stonewashed jean shorts, thigh high Louboutin boots, and a baseball cap.  What do you think about this look?

OMG FACT - Scratch your Throat by Massaging Your Ear

Ever had an itch in your throat that you just couldn't scratch? There's actually a little trick that will get rid of that annoying scratch! If you pull on your earlobe and massage it between your thumb and index finger the itch will go away. As crazy as it sounds, it actually works.  Why does touching your ear impact your throat? Massaging the earlobe will stimulate the nerves in the ear, which will trigger a reflex in the throat. As this reflex occurs, it causes a tiny muscle to spasm in your throat, removing that annoying itch!

Wiz Khalifa Kissing his Mom

Wiz Khalifa really loves his mother, so much they kiss each other on the lips. Wiz tweeted this photo yesterday, while the two celebrated his mother's birthday. I think it is a great thing when a man really loves his mother and I also think it is nothing wrong with them kissing on the lips. A bond between a mother and her child is a great thing and if that bond stays strong when they become an adult that is even a greater thing.

SWV - Co-Sign

90's girl group SWV is making a comeback with their new single, "Co-Sign". I am a fan of SWV, but my question is, do they still have what it takes to make a come back ? I guess I have to just wait and see. As of right now I know that  I am definitely loving their single , " Co-Sign". This song reminds me of 90's music, but I really think we need some good 90's inspired music out right now.

Big Ang as Marilyn Monroe

VH1's Mob Wives star Big Ang as Marilyn Monroe. So Big Ang dresses up as Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe  for a photo shoot with Next Magazine and I am almost positive it wasn't a good thing to do, but what do you think? 
I actually do like Big Ang's character on Mob Wives, but this photoshoot is really a joke to me.

Ashanti at NYC Fashion Week

So Ashanti may have been laying low for a while, but look what she shows up in at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City. The multi colored sheer Falguni & Shane Peacock  dress was definitely a head turner, especially matched up with her Christian Louboutin Sex Pumps. 
Ashanti has a lot of sex appeal and she really knows how to use it.

Nicki Minaj on the Cover of Vibe Magazine

Even though Nicki Minaj's sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded has been pushed back until April, she is still making moves and one of those moves is gracing the cover of Feb/March issue of Vibe Magazine. 
In this issue Nicki Minaj talks about things such as; not having fun recording her first album Pink Friday, being a woman in the industry, and being accepted in the fashion world.  Check out some excerpts from her interview below.
You’ve said before that you didn’t really have fun recording Pink Friday. I felt like I had something to prove to everyone who said a female rapper could not make an album unless she was talking about her pussy. And so I went above and beyond to prove that I could not talk about sex and not talk about my genitalia and still have a successful album. And I proved that. And now my time for proving things to my critics is over. I don’t really need to prove anything to anyone else anymore.
Is it still hard to get your way as a woman in this industry? It’s …

PATH train service suspended due to jump attempt at Grove Street in Jersey City M.G. De Guzman / The Jersey Journal

The morning commute was laden with delays due to a jump attempt made by a young woman at the Grove Street PATH Station, Port Authority officials say.
Confirmed by surveillance video footage, at around 6:20 A.M. a distressed young woman leaped in front of an incoming train.
Fortunately, the timing of the jump afforded the engineer time to apply the breaks. The woman also landed in a location that provided her with good clearance from the third rail, officials also report.
The woman was extricated from under the train conscious and with no major injuries, and accompanied by the conductor and another Port Authority employee to Jersey City Medical Center. An EMS on scene described her as "lucky to be alive."
She is currently undergoing treatment and psychiatric evaluations.
Service at the Grove Street station was suspended, then delayed to 20-minute intervals during the h…
