, Los Angeles, CA – 04/9/2015 – Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea film a Music Video
-PHOTO by: Vince Flores/startraksphoto.com

Welcome to the fabulous new release by mostly Britney Spears with a dash of Iggy Azalea to push it into the Top 40 billboard hits. It’s called ‘Pretty Girls’ because really it’s all you hear during this god awful mess. It tried to be some 80s-ish redux of ‘Earth Girls are Easy’ mixed with basic 80s trash style, and turned into a straight train wreck of idiocy. Britney is repetitive more than usual and the itsy-bitsy Iggy part of her rapping is barely hearable. Overall, bad, bad, FAIL.

I know I am scathing and harsh when it comes to stuff like this so I will let you gauge for yourself, how, erm, interesting this video is. Good luck and try not to drop your jaw in disbelief too hard.

In case you’ve been living in a cave, #Beyonce dropped #FlawlessRemix with #NickiMinaj

Beyonce-and-Nicki-Minaj-flawless
In case you have been hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro, or perhaps living in cave, awesome popular music just dropped.

Beyoncé, Queen of Quite A Lot, and Nicki Minaj, girl with Quite A Lot of Booty collaborated. And it was awesome. Addressing the Solange elevator debacle and good ‘ol haters, these two hot hip hop songstress’ brought the best case of illz I have had in a while.

Listen to the original on her site below…

Things to do besides your taxes, May 1st Whisky GoGo @LanceHerbstrong FREE SHOW #Mayday #Free #Music #LA

And you thought braving Coachella was bad.

Today in the US, Millions of Americans will hoof it to the lovely post office and stand in the worst line ever to file their taxes. Or an extension. Or realize they didn’t make enough and are too broke this year to file. Ah, the 21st century blues.

Even though we love being responsible *cough* we love things that are FREE and irresponsible better. I bring you good news and tidings from the awesomeness that is FREE shows.

10157221_10203655604613783_5282917024295906978_n

Lance Herbstrong is putting on a free show at the Whisky go-go Hollywood! Yes, FREE. I love that word because living in Los Angeles is NOT cheap. Plus it makes for a fun show with a great vibe full of fun people.

Added incentive is the uber cool BREALTV is helping host it. BREALTV is like the High Times of television. Oh and the special guests? Well, past friends of Lance Herbstrong include Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers who gave Lance a shout out onstage and George Clinton of Parliament and Atomic Dog. Last but not least, If you haven’t heard or been to the Whisky GoGo, it’s the famed venue where the Doors got their start and became a mega band. Also mega players breeze through for ‘special’ events like this one. It’s historically and musically awesome.

What’s the catch? You have to RSVP ASAP!!

OMG, where’s the link? Right below this;

Ima Change Your Life with Iggy Azalea to Rock Your Day (video) #Explicit #NSFW

Lately I have been mega inspired. I owe some of that to Los Angeles Fashion Week. I owe some of it to my favorite ghetto booty girl Iggy Azalea.

Iggy-Azalea-Acclaim-Magazine-01

First she was signed to Wilhelmina Models. Then she ditched modeling for music. For years she’s been working with some of the hardest music gangsta’ in the industry. Now she’s finally owning it. And I’m loving her ratchet, booty shaking, sick-flowing ways.

Dripped LA Fashion Soiree at SupperClub LA #Fab #Fashion #Elite #Runway

Dripped Show

Being so busy I forgot to do a review on a great fashion show I recently was part of here in the heart of Hollywood at Supperclub. It was smart, well put together and all about the elite.

I might have not gone had it not been for the fact, the talented and tres chic, Adolfo Sanchez, had an installation there. Adolfo has been taking the international fashion market by storm. With several seasons worth of shows at NYFW, national coverage and of course a recent trip to Turkey and Western Europe, Adolfo Sanchez has broadened his lines availability and now works on couture as well.

Check out his line here, because they are soooo very. Adolfo Sanchez Designs

In fact that was the first thing I saw as I walked in the door.

IMAG1863copyleadAS

After a meet, greet and air kisses Adolfo and I looked on while his well-kilted assistant adjusted the installation before opening.

IMAG1862copy

And open it did. The Dripped Soiree was packed and everyone was there from stylist and business entrepreneur Eric Burns, of Prep Jerks, Inc., Marianne Geisha Of GGeisha Productions and the style crew that included my long-lost friend Malakai.

After an hour or so of mingling and drinking the crowd was restless. We were thankfully rescued by being ushered into the main floor. The 5 designers presenting; Madem Black, Staci Sherri, J Loren, Reckor and FROCK LA. Allof the designers were on their game but my personal fave’s that  stood out were Madem Black, J. Loren and Frock.

With a full rubber and latex collection Madem Black kicked off with delicious diva’s in rubber, latex and PVC. Letting the imagination run wild she presented outfits with peek-a-boo latex lattices. One or two pieces even left nothing to the imaginations created from see through PVC and rubber. As it should when bringing the sexy. Between the spikes and latex everyone’s jaw appropriately dropped and Madem Black left us with a sexy taste in our mouth.

J. Loren brought the 60’s kitsch with gorgeous body-con dresses. With angular shoulders, J. Loren created sexy silhouettes bringing to mind Mad Men. Although some dresses were color blocked (and well) most were divided with loud prints and black lined figures, reflecting early 60’s sectional couture. A must have in my wardrobe. It was indeed, perfect skinny girl clothing.

Frock LA, was devastating.

They ended the show with a presentation that rivals most NYFW shows. Classic elegance, embodied in a ethnic chic. Tall, lengthy girls taking the time to not only show off their lengthy gowns but pose in the moment. Sadly I only got the first few models on the runway in video but they ended the show in absolute perfection.

Huge thanks to all involved, especially GGeisha Marianne and crew. I will be covering Frock LA when Dad’s Day is over.

Check out some of the random shots I got over the evening in the gallery below.

Monday Music, ‘Synrise’ by GOOSE #EditorialMusic #Cool #WakeUp

Yesterday I posted a very gorgeous video with very gorgeous supermodel’s in Dior.

Today I give you the band that made it all deliciously possible. I figure we all deserve to wake up with some Monday morning inspiration while we chug down a pitcher of coffee.

Enjoy your Monday Music by easing into the day with ‘Synrise’ by Belgium band GOOSE.

LA Runway at Mansion Hollywood/LA Fashion Week #RunwayReport #Dancers #Singers #HeathyrWolfe

Fashion Week in LA was absolutely well done and gorgeous this year. I did miss some highlights and events, but one must  pick and choose very wisely.

‘LA Runway’, event by Parris Harris Entertainment was an excellent choice especially since hey were doing a food drive for the LA Mission’s.

I brought another part of our Fast Lane Magazine editorial team, Rene Rivers with me to the event. One must always have fashionable friends with you. Rene Rivers (StyledbyRene.com) is a stylist, I knew she would enjoy the runway and clothing.IMAG1312

We checked in early so we got to watch run through’s and set up.

IMAG1295 IMAG1306 IMAG1305 IMAG1296

It’s always nice to know what you are getting into.

In Los Angeles we’ve had our issues with Fashion Week. This year however was organized and brilliant. In LA we aim to achieve more than NYFW by including the strange, unusual and always unexpected. I’m pleased to say Parris Harris Entertainment really went above and beyond with this show. Although it was a lengthy 4 hours it was worth every minute.

HUGE Thanks to Parris Harris. He seated in the front so we got a really clear view.

Front Diva. It’s what being a Fashion Editor is all about.

The place was packed.

IMAG1349

I swear I though people would start swinging from the rafters. It was THAT kind of packed.

We were lucky to here a few kind words from one of the chair of the LA mission who serves over 2,000 meals a day here in Los Angeles to the homeless and needy. This woman is a saint.

After intro’s from the talented Alicia Hardesty & the LA Mission L Runway at Mansion rocked it with sexy Brazilian hitting the runway. Ay Mami!

IMAG1326IMAG1327

If anyone ever says LA is boring again I am hiring these girls to come over. They WRECKED the runway.

Other AMAZING performances were by a high energy girl group called The Dolls

A one woman show who gives Lady Gaga a run for her money (somebody email this girls number to me), Spankie Valentine.

Spankie is not only gorgeous but she knows how to work a stage, an audience and bring the music. She’s got talent and style. Obviously influenced by Diva’s like Beyonce, Janet Jackson with a tiny dash of 80’s glam costuming. She’s got sass and flash and is definitely someone to keep an eye and ear on.

Check out pics from her ferosh stage show;

And one of the most talented violinst’s I have ever seen.

The Musicians were top notch and I will be forever grateful I got to see them perform each of their unique talents.

Six designers were featured on the runway throughout the evening. All the designers were amazing my favorites were Camille Wood, Jewelry Designer Carol Lynn Sweet of Sweet Designs and my friend Shekhar Rahate (you still owe me a drink!). I will be doing a piece on Carol’s jewelry line later this week but for now go check out here pieces at;

For crazy fun and swim/clubwear with some sass look no further than Camille Wood.

Camille has a killer smile, a mass of blond hair and is just all around fun. Her fashion is exactly the same with an addition of fantasy and swimsuits made for killer bodies. She topped them all with elegant and bejeweled headdresses making for a perfect outfit for the modern day Cleopatra. Or ballsy girl who loves to show shes more than the average beach girl.

IMAG1425 IMAG1427 IMAG1428 IMAG1429 IMAG1430 IMAG1431 IMAG1433 IMAG1435

Shekhar Rahate ended the show with classic beauty. His dresses have been seen on stars and celebrities at The Grammys, Helium Magazine, LA Fashion Week and at NY Fashion Week. The man is a master of his trade and produces nothing short of elegance.

Most of the dresses featured in Shekhar (literally meaning sugar) Rahate’s collection were lean, long and full of feminine grace. Gold hues mixed with Indian prints. Flowers printed silks and cottons were topped with elegant headdresses  Definitely the man to go to for a red carpet dress.

Check out his website ShekharRahate.com and the gallery below;

Amanda Bynes has Topped the Britney Spears Episodes #UsWeeklyInterview #Accutane #WeightLoss #Wigs #RedLight #Eviction

Dear Lord. As if we don’t have enough celebrity gossip.

Haaaaay! I'm Craaaay!

Haaaaay! I’m Craaaay!

Amanda Bynes is fueling the fire. Seem’s someone has joined the it’s not drugs its just mental instability train. With a recent move to NYC Bynes crazy that was limited to DUI’s, and club nights in Hollywood have escalated to eviction notices, wig changing and drugs that are illegal in the US.

That’s right. Let’s start at the beginning of some of the erratic behavior. First we had the ‘I’m retired, no I’m not’ stint. Then we moved on to MULTIPLE car crashes and a big fat DUI. Feeling judged Ms. Bynes decided to up and leave the land of LALA to go to NYC. Then she really fell down the rabbit hole.

 Ms. Bynes moved into an Manhattan apartment where she frequently left her door not just unlocked (asking to be murdered in NYC is leaving your door unlocked) but wide open. There, her neighbors saw she had changed all the light bulbs to red. Her apartment was also constantly filled with smoke. If you say just cigarettes I say liar. Hard rugs always make you chain smoke if you are a smoker so my guess is she liked to ‘party’.

An eviction notice was to be served but she moved before the landlord had a chance.

Then, the star had kept mostly to her Twitter posting photos of her in every wig known to drag queens. Unfortunately she recently moved her crazy to a profile with US Weekly listing the 25 things you don’t (want) to know about her.

The 5’8 star says she has a goal to lose weight because gains it quickly. After all she is a HUGE 121 lbs.

I moved to New York City and I love it! I lost 4 lbs. since I moved. I’m 121 lbs — my goal is 100 lbs.Read more: http://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/amanda-bynes-25-things-you-dont-know-about-me-2013152#ixzz2LCzfwQSS 

Wait, what?

Her goal is 100 lbs. Yeah, really. Wigs and car crashes may be ‘funny’, but the rest is out of control.

Ms. Bynes is on the health afflicted ‘Accutane’ for her skin, which is illegal in the US.

Not that many remember but this stuff was so damn bad for you it was YANKED of the shelves for causing birth defects, rectal bleeding, purple spots under the skin, jaundice, bloody stools, bone fracture and in more severe cases Crones Disease and ulcerative colitis.

It also has some side effects that include erratic behavior, depression and suicidal thoughts. You have to wonder if all this is hard drugs or may just be an illegal acne medicine.

Either way, I’ll take blackheads any day over looking like this.

Stay Classy Rihanna- Chris Brown. Oh, Wait, Not Possible. New #Fights #Tattoos #NakedRihanna

Oh my damn.

rihanna-without-panties-in-front-of-fireplace

Rihanna is looking a straight mess in this photo.

As the heated relationship between grade-A douche Chris Brown and hormone driven Rihanna continues, it gets worse. WOW there’s a surprise.

Rihanna made the stupid mistake of getting back together with Brown a couple of months ago. With a combination of tweets and tat’s, Brown and Rihanna continue to defend their ‘heated’ relationship.

After tweeting several pictures to prove their sweet love, Rihanna has taken things a step further. To match Chris Brown atrocious Ri-Ri neck tattoo, Rihanna has gotten ‘Breezy’ tattooed on her neck. ‘Breezy’ is CB’s nickname and her way of showing growing commitment.

Brown showed his deep and undying love to Rihanna, by partying with his MODEL EX-GIRLFRIEND in Paris last week. Uh…what?

According to our favorite newsy website, Huffpost celebrity;

Rihanna is reportedly angry with Brown after he partied with Karrueche Tran, his model ex, after his Paris gig on Friday night, according to The Sun. “She can’t get it into her head that Chris will never change,” a source told the tabloid.

Once a cheating, abusive jerk, always one? Looks like it.

Both of them are young so there’s a good chance this won’t last. Hopefully if Rihanna calls it quits again it will be permanently. Then Chris can take his crazy elsewhere.

Ri-Ri hunny, remember, the ‘Breezy’ tat is small enough we can do what’s called a ‘cover up’. Start planning now sugar-plum.

We need our rockin’ pop diva back, sans Chris Brown.

And the Beat Goes On, This Time With LiLo #Fight #Drunk

Oh Lindsay darling. You are ALWAYS my favorite hot mess. The day you die millions of bloggers will cry for lack of material. In the meantime I still have you so…..

 

Turns out Lilo got her ‘beat down’ on, and went to JAIL for once.

Lindsay went to the Justin Bieber concert with her sister Ali , not to see Bieber, but the up and coming boy band ‘The Wanted’. The lead singer Max George is a hot piece, and English making him extra nom to American Girls. And Lindsay wants him bad.

Sigh, He is just dreamy. Be still my beating groin.

Lindz and met up with him and the and Max’s mates at a hotel bar and then headed to the Avenue nightclub. There, Lindsay started drinking like only a Lohan can. As the night progressed Max was not having it so he ignored her drunk ass.

Max became interested in talking with another girl (duh Lindz!), a married tourist named Tiffany Mitchell. Lindsay got her temper freak on, and she punched the other girl in the face.

Oh, snap. That was the ticket because Lindsay then ended up with the police for a midnight date. Charges were pressed for assault and battery. Max George won and ended up with some OTHER chick and left a groupie and one drunk redheaded groupie at the bar to sort out their drunk bitch fight.

According to Zap2it.com;

Dina Lohan did meet Lindsay immediately after she was released from custody. Lohan has been charged with third-degree assault.

 

Poor kid is a hot mess and needs some 5150 in her life. For my international readers that’s a 72 hour mental health lock down in America. Cuffs and all. Looks like Lohan is headed to jail for real this time. You don’t walk away and have a martini after 3rd degree assault charges.

Here’s hoping she gets it together, OR makes it through the year. I’d be happy with either one.

Dose of Insanity – Die Antwoord “Fatty Boom Boom” (video)

Die Antwoord must be taking the best drugs on the planet. Their music an ass shaking trip, filled with terrifying pitches, south African rap w/ a side of crunk via Ninja and references to tiny, but fab bootie by Yo-Landi Vi$$er.

And their videos…50 times weirder.

Envision a mockery of Lady Gaga in a meat dress on a South Africa on a tour bus. Then add a dash of black face with yellow eyes. Lions, panthers, a KK-almost K man banging on a steel drum, and Lady Gaga giving birth to a bug in side street dentist/gyno shop.

Yeah words cannot describe this video. REALLY. They cannot.

Enjoy your daily dose of liquid acid and Lindsay Lohan blood. This shit is out of control.

Die Antwoord – Fatty Boom Boom;

Lindsay Lohan Assaulted in NYC Hotel Room! The Dirty Details on Christian LaBella.

Poor Lindsay cannot get a break! Whether she is having a hard time, crashing cars, being chased by paparazzi, Lindsay is always under scrutiny and a heck of a mess. This time however it was NOT her fault.

Lindsay had been sadly, caught up as an easy mark by Christian LaBella Republican Congressional Staffer for He works for Rep. John Shimkus and is the nephew of comedian Heather McDonald.

LaBella posted a picture of him and Paul Ryan on his Facebook

Lohan had met up with Christian LaBella at 1OAK. Supposedly Christian LaBella was a little starstruck and started up a conversation. Turns out Miss Lohan invited him up to hang out in her hotel room at the NYC Union Square W Hotel where she was staying to hang out.

Around 6 am she took LaBella’s phone and became upset because he had been secretly taking pictures of her all night and was emailing them to friends.

LaBella got violent when she wouldn’t give back the phone and he escalated things. Lindsay was thrown down on the bed and scratched by LaBella. She got away, locked herself in the bathroom after the assault and waited until she could make a break for it out of her 15th floor sweet with Claus Hjelmbak.

Then it got uglier;

When the “Freaky Friday” star and her hunky pal began walking back up the stairs, they again encountered LaBella, sources said.

She claimed that he choked her from behind and threw her to the floor before Hjelmbak yanked him away, cops said. Lohan pulled the fire alarm for help as he fled, police said.

Cops who responded spoke to Lohan and began looking for LaBella, who was trapped in the stairwell because the alarm had disabled the elevators.

Whoa. I’m going to sway a little here and say Lindsay REALLY did not deserve that insanity and LaBella just got labeled as a full grade asshole. Sadly, the assault charges were ‘dropped’.

Hmmm, I wonder if that has anything to do with being a Congressional staffer? I guess LaBella just dodged his first scandal thanks to ‘connections’. He’ll do fine in politics.

Watch your back Lindsay and stick with your work hunny.

This is the second time the NYPD has been called in to ‘deal’ with a Lohan situation. The first being a minor car accident involving the actress. Let’s hope it’s the LAST time too.

Let’s hope Lindsay is a little more careful while she is in New York filming.

 

Kami Shade Rocks Facade Magazine

I’m focusing on most things fashion this week because of  Spring/Summer 2012/2013 season. Nice excuse to have.

As my readers know I am big on promoting emerging designers and I LOVE then succeed. Unfortunately I never get clothes but I pimp them anyway.

This week I am pleased to say the illustrious diva designer Kami Shade is in the spotlight with a very cool editorial in Facade Magazine.

Not only am I super proud to see miss thing get a great editorial but the clothes, oh the dresses make me want to cry and empty my bank account.

Check it out

Love this look. Super Hollywood glamour.

Think that is all there is to this collection? You are very much mistaken darlings. Go peruse the Kami Shade store below by clicking the hottie in the swimsuit.

She does custom order if you don’t see your size or have something special in mind. Happy shopping!

Kami Shade Fashion Show Presented by W Magazine at Eden Hollywood. Backstage Exclusive.

Diva, Goddess and Fashion Designer Kami Shade. Recently gracing the pages of W Magazine (featuring her black one piece swimsuit) she is an emerging designer with an amazing presence and defining eye. She brings swaths of sequined material to life in a unique way that is both wicked and fun. More importantly totally wearable.

I was recently invited to attend a private and exclusive, invite-only show at Eden Hollywood. Eden Hollywood if you have not been is VERY exclusive. Being an SBE venue gives it an edge that makes an interior designers dream. Add Kami Shade designs and it was an enviable evening.

Eden Hollywood Ceiling Lamps. I was trying to be arty.

Check in was at 9:30 pm. Being media means that you don’t get to waltz in anytime. I did get there early with my roomie and luckily got to see some of the girls pre-show and take a photo or two.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can I just say they are superstar’s. Between fitting the models, getting them all in air and make up and making sure everyone was happy and organized they were a cut above the rest.

We eventually were led back into the back area/VIP lounge where 2 of Kami’s assistants were working with the models.

While they took care of technical issues, i.e. the girls and I got to socialize a bit. The people working with Kami are astounding and generally greatly amusing….in a good way of course.

 

 

 

 

I also got to goof with some of the models.

Not all models are brainless and stuck up. In fact contrary to most of the (jealous) populations belief they are ridiculous and fun like the rest of us. (I hear the echo of a ‘Just Like Us’ article here)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UNLESS, they are working. Hair and make up is a must for runway so sit still….

Because if you move you could lose an eye darlings.

After make-up the back bathroom becomes full of girls trying out fits for best fit and Kami’s assistant were super stars while Kami worked with SBE on getting the runway show ready.

She was also super sweet about letting me take a full Diva picture of her. Talented and sexy!

I have to tell you it is incredibly tempting to jump in and help, or try on the clothes. But being a professional I managed to just hang out and not steal clothes like a backstage thief with the bombshells wearing Kami Shade and enjoy the evening instead.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is interesting to watch the havoc at a runway show. It goes from social hour to run, jump and shake a tail feather. The havoc is amazing and the energy crackles backstage. It is straight 0 to 200 mph and there is no way not to love the chaos. It’s just pure fashion at it’s best.

I have to apologize to Kami for not covering her complete show as there was an issue with SBE club security not letting me out to view what I was covering. However I do have to thank David Bever at for the photos from the runway. They are fabulous.

The best pat of Kami Shade’s fashion show for me though was seeing that she gives back. After the show Kami let the girls take a piece home. A real rarity for a designer and the best way to pay the models back for their hard work. And it was a fray!

Kami Shade deserves major props. Not just for creating a line for women that are gorgeous, sexy with lines that define the body perfectly, but for all her hard work.

Kami Shade is indeed an emerging artist to watch, admire and buy from. Her work is powerful, trendy and grabs the eye. She does make clothing custom, so if you think ‘it won’t fit’, it will. She’s talented like that.

Well played Kami Shade. I look forward to future shows and seeing you rise to the top
