A trippy mellow beat perfect for driving, the single ”Cruisin” marks a change in tempo for Jasmine Solano. Produced by The Raak and Gilbere Forte and directed by The ICU, we love the styling by our own Radio Rose with make up by Camille Thompson. The Pontiac is #fire. Enjoy!

ASAPRockyWAHNails Video: ASAP Rocky Purple Kisses

In ASAP Rocky’s latest video for “Purple Kisses,” London is the backdrop though you’d never know because the theme is high-on-everything, body-on-body, groupie luuuuv with the Buddy Holly sample “It’s So Easy To Fall In Love,” on heavy slow-mo repeat. Listen for name checks on Yves Saint Laurent and Isabel Marant, and be sure and check out the very awesome nail art by WAH Nails (image above). The song is directed by the pretty one himself and the version accompanying the video was produced by Very Rare. It will be part of the ASAP Mob mixtape, Lord$ Never Worry, available on August 28th.

V79LadyGagaMemoNo4 540x532 V Magazine Gaga Memo 7: Manicures

After a quiet period for better or worse Lady Gaga is back on the scene, in this case writing her memos once again for V Magazine. This time she pontificates on the importance of manicures. Here are her six reasons for nail grooming (her caps, not mine):

SIX REASONS YOU SHOULD DO THIS:
1 HAVING A PERFECT MANICURE INSTANTLY MAKES YOU FEEL BEAUTIFUL AND CLEAN.
2 YOU’LL BE READY FOR SEX OR TO PUT A PENIS IN YOUR HAND.
3 IT’S A WAY FOR YOU TO EXPRESS YOURSELF (CAREFUL HOW YOU DO THAT).
4 IT FORCES YOU TO SEE THE IMPORTANCE OF MAKING TIME FOR YOURSELF.
5 IT BOOSTS YOUR SELF-ESTEEM EVERYDAY.
6 IT PROJECTS AN IMAGE OF SUCCESS, WHICH IS GOOD FOR BIZ.

Given her points no doubt Gaga is hoping to generate some conversation, but honestly I just cannot. To see a full-sized version of the image above click here.

Video Ad: Azealia Banks For T By Alexander Wang

27 July 2012, 12.55 | Posted in Music, advertisement, celebrity | No comments »

Following in the footsteps of Santigold, Spank Rock and Die Antwoord, Azealia Banks is the new face of T by Alexander Wang for Autumn 2012, kicked off with a video that includes the Harlem rapper performing her single “Van Vogue” from her leak-all-over-the-place EP 1991. Earlier this year, Banks and Wang attended the Met Gala together. One has to hope this signals a move in a more productive direction for Banks who despite her talent has stumbled quite a bit out of the gate.

Amy Winehouse With Freckles

AmyWinehoouse2009 540x360 Amy Winehouse With Freckles

Today is the one-year anniversary of Amy Winehouse’s death. I posted something earlier on her connection with Mark Ronson. Here’s a very sweet photo of her where she’s lets her freckles show. It was taken sometime in 2009 on her way to or from a court appearance.

Amy Winehouse One Year Later In Memory

22 July 2012, 22.43 | Posted in Music, celebrity | 3 comments »

Winehouse&Ronson

Tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of Amy Winehouse’s death at the age of just 27.  This is one of my favorite videos of her and I’ve been watching it all day today. It’s a live performance featuring Mark Ronson, who backs-up performances by Adele, Daniel Merriweather and finally Winehouse singing “Valerie,” at the Brit Awards in 2008.

The tendency if you’re a Winehouse fan is to skip past the first two performances, but watching the whole video gives insight into the special relationship between Winehouse, Ronson and her fans, which is really fascinating to watch.

If you ever want to experience the living embodiment of chemistry, watch how Ronson, the audience and the orchestra all light up when Winehouse marches on stage at 2:55 and see how Ronson and her connect throughout the performance: her seeking musical direction from him at 3:42, him silently encouraging her along as he mouths the lyrics at 3:56, the way he symbolically shields her and keeps her on track with his guitar and of course the blissful ending when it’s clear they’ve pulled off quite the moment.

Winehouse does that very true artist thing where she just sort of goes to this faraway place when she performs and it seems Ronson knew how to make her feel safe and protected so she could zone out all the more, at least that is on stage. The great ones, after all, possess a certain fragility that is best served by some shepherding though it seems in the end they are destined to walk their paths alone. It’s all very bittersweet and beautiful. Wonderful and a blessing that we are able to witness it at all but sad that we never will again.
