Video: P!nk ‘ Try’

Pink does some serious dancing with hunk Colt Prattes in an emotional and physical choreography that really reminds me of Mia Michaels’, but is actually by RJ Durell and Nick Florez . Enjoy!

Video: Nas ‘Cherry Wine’ Ft. Amy Winehouse

02 October 2012, 21.34 | Posted in Music, collection | No comments »

From Nas’ 2012 album, Life is Good, the single “Cherry Wine,” featuring Amy Winehouse receives the video treatment. The Salaam Remi track had its beginnings in a 2008 studio session that brought the two performers together.  Winehouse’s unique voice dominates the track but the video doesn’t exactly live up to the complexity the two are known for. Rather it seems overly simplistic with the male lead overcoming challengers to eventually win over the smoking hot video vixen. Imagine that.

Video: Solange Knowles ‘Losing You’

02 October 2012, 18.36 | Posted in Music, celebrity, video | 1 comment »

We wrote about the making of the Solange Knowles video for the song “Losing You” and now we have the finished product.  Filmed in South Africa, it is a surprisingly sweet song about lost love. Give a listen and see if it doesnt somehow it reminds of vintage Madonna…and something else which is so darn familiar and yet I cannot name it but it’s 80s new wave, that much I know! [UPDATE: Okay so it's produced by Blood Orange's Devonte Hyndes which explains the 80s synth sound, which also shows up in his song "Champagne Coast."]

As for style, it is of course off-the-charts G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S., the people, the fashion, the lovingly shot local scene shots, it’s a stunner flat out (Note to SGP: you are gonna DIE over the menswear). And then there’s the added fun of watching Solanges dance moves and seeing the connection between her and her older sister. By the end, like me, you may find yourself utterly charmed by La Hermana and rooting for her to win.

T Mag Men’s Issue: Jay-Z Cover Story

JayBlueIvy 540x410 T Mag Mens Issue: Jay Z Cover Story

In a cover story, British author Zadie Smith sits down to eat with Jay-Z and interviews him for T magazine’s men’s issue for autumn. We learn he’s a fan of “chicken parm,” and also that he realizes that for four-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy, growing up in TriBeCa rather than Bed Stuy will create a very different set of demands. According to the article:

At the last minute, I remembered to ask after his family, “Oh, my family’s amazing.” And the baby? “She’s four months.” Marcy raised me, and whether right or wrong/Streets gave me all I write in the song. But what will TriBeCa give Blue? “I actually thought about that more before she was born. Once she got here I’ve been in shock until maybe last week?” Her childhood won’t be like his, and this fact he takes in his stride. “We would fight each other. My brother would beat me up,” he says, but it was all in preparation for the outside. “I was going to have to fight, I was going to have to go through some things, and they were preparing me.” He smiles: “She doesn’t have to be tough. She has to love herself, she has to know who she is, she has to be respectful, and be a moral person.” It’s a new day.

IggyAzaleaFlavor 400x540 Iggy Azalea For Flavor Magazine September 2012

Iggy Azalea is featured on dual covers for Flavor magazine’s issue for September 2012. On the one above, she is declared “Le Nouveau Visage Du Hip-Hop” (translation: the new face of hip hop), and on the second “La Femme Fatale Du Hip-Hop,” (no translation needed!).  Interesting that she’s flashing her “Live, Love ASAP” tattoo. Not sure those two could still be together given how “busy” he seems to be these days.
