Hold your fire. If you thought Adrienne Bailon‘s 30th Birthday Bash would consist only of a four-day-old Publix sheet cake, Cheetah Girls party decorations purchased from the clearance section at Ross, and a game of pin the tail on Rob Kardashian think again. There was a red carpet, too.
The ‘I’m In Love With A Church Girl’ actress (boom!) was joined at Studio XXI in New York City this weekend by Ne-Yo, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, Shaggy, Skylar Diggins, Fabolous and longtime girlfriend Emily B, Victor Cruz, Estelle and more. Check out all of the party people inside.
Fefe Dobson and fiancé Yelawolf walk the red carpet at the Shock The World 2013 event highlighting the 30th anniversary of watch company G-Shock on Wednesday (August 7) in New York City. The couple was joined at the event by Estelle, Fabolous, Rosie Perez, Doug E. Fresh, Adrienne Bailon, Paul Pierce and Melanie Fiona.
Depending on who you talk to — and by that I mean people who are still on active LiveJournal — Rihanna ripped off Fefe’s style when she went through that stage when she viewed life as one long Aerosmith music video and she was Alicia Silverstone.
The Canadian singer and songwriter had the following to say when Honey Magazine quizzed on if she thought Rih Rih jacked her style back in 2009:
I mean, for sure I question that, but who wouldn’t. She is supposedly a fan of mine. I try to take it as a compliment. It gets a little much when she starts getting the same tattoos as me but overall I just want people to separate the image and listen to the music. It’s about the music. Its like Prince and Michael Jackson, totally different artists. Or its like Kanye West and Jay-Z. So what? They are both black men, they sound different. So they both wear jeans, they are different.
Mitch Winehouse, trap alias Mr. Wipe Down, honored the memory of his late daughter with his wardrobe again like any real G would at the 2013 Amy Winehouse Foundation Inspiration Awards and Gala in New York City on Thursday night (March 21). That airbrushed denim suit is happening any day now.
Jennifer Hudson performed three songs at the event, receiving a standing ovation from the crowd of a few hundred. Nas, who was nominated for a Grammy with Winehouse earlier this year for their collaboration “Cherry Wine,” earned an award, accepting in a video.
Check out hot shots from Estelle, Janelle Monae, Tamala Jones, my current girl crush Teyonah Parris (touch this skin, honey!), Chaka Khan and loads of more lovely ladies making moves this week below.
Essence saluted Solange Knowles and Lianne La Havas at its 4th Annual Essence Black Women In Music Event. The Lincoln sponsored invitation-only affair was hosted by Essence magazine editor-at-large Emil Wilbekin and last year’s honoree Kelly Rowland.
“Lianne and Solange are the perfect examples of what’s current in music and having Lincoln sponsor an event celebrating these two young progressive African-American women is an honor,” says Lincoln manager of Multicultural Marketing Shawn Thompson.
On Wednesday night (October 10), everybody’s favorite group of “almost but not quite there” singers came out to celebrate the 8th Annual Paper Magazine Nightlife Awards which was presented by Hennessy V.S. at Webster Hall in New York City.
Roc Nation’s Angelica PicklesRita Ora, Diddy’s current concubine Cassie and Acting president of the Greasy But Nonetheless Beautiful Faces of America club (you know, when Stacey Dash can’t make the meetings) Melanie Fiona were all found in the V.I.P. section sipping complimentary drinks and slipping their albums in women’s unattended purses.
The party was rounded out by HOT 97′s Miss Info, rapper Wale, model Jessica White, and blazing Brit Estelle.
Up until a few years ago Kevin Liles was a platinum card carrying member of Team Chunk. And then he showed up at an event looking like the turtle from that old Tootsie Pop commercial. Whether he shed his pounds through a medical intervention [that's the Star Jones way of putting it] or by maintaining a healthy lifestyle that included diet and exercise is unimportant. He did what he had to do. Applaud that man.
But you know the fat kid inside wants to snatch that cupcake and make tender love to it. More birthday party pictures of C+D friend in the head Estelle under the cut.
