Has Kelis Lost Her Style At Data Awards? Fashion Forward Or Please Fall Back

Posted by on Jan 29, 2010 in Celebrity Awards, Celebrity Fashion, Celebrity Humor, Celebrity Red Carpet | 11 comments

If this is the route Kelis is taking to maintain her uniqueness and style, then I believe she’s won. I don’t know what happened since the baby and the divorce filings against husband Nas, but I’m thinking she has lost something.  If her goal is to prevent them young cats from her jacking her style, then I believe she has won this battle, and if she keeps dressing like this, I think she may have won the war, as well.

So is this pressing the fashion envelope, or is this just hot mess? Too each his own, but don’t expect me not to have an opinion. In all fairness to Kelis, this outfit is what sh wore to the Data Awards, so maybe that explains it. I hope!

When A woman Brings Out The Best In You: Brad Pitt & Swizz Beatz

Posted by on Jan 29, 2010 in Celebrity Charity, Celebrity Couples, Celebrity Exes | 3 comments

Perhaps I have been too hard on Brad Pitt and Swizz Beatz over their extra marital affairs, and leaving their marriages to pursue a relationship with their “soul mates”.  Although, I don’t like how the relationship started, I will say their is a noticeable change in both men, for the better. Brad Pitt donated $1 Million to Haiti relief fund, and we can’t forget the fact that he he moved to New Orleans to aid in the rebuilding efforts, after Hurricane Katrina. When I see Brad with Zahara and his other children, I get all teary-eyed…

Before his relationship with Alicia Keys, I’ve never really heard of Swizz Beatz being the first in the line to help with a crisis. In fact, there was little to no press regarding Swizz Beatz and his philanthropic work. Not saying that he didn’t do any (I heard he sells his painting for charity);  just saying it wasn’t publicized or as visible.

One of the unsung heroes behind the Haiti Telethon Collaboration of Jay-Z, Bono, Rihanna, and The Edge, was song writer/producer  Swizz Beatz; who created the song Stranded.

Now that he’s with Alicia Keys, perhaps we will see more of this side of him, as well as some his art work:

Alicia Keys Denies Engagement To Swizz Beatz; Denies Their Buying Condo Together

Posted by on Jan 29, 2010 in Celebrity Couples, Celebrity Sightings | 1 comment

I think stars like to deny rumors for the extra publicity, and not so they can protect their private lives. The more a celebrity says no, the more persistent tabloids will be to prove them wrong. Anyway, Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz have been seen several times shopping together for a New York condo, and now reports are in that they plan to buy a $14.5 Million condo that once housed the likes of Lenny Kravitz, Denzel Washington, and Nicole Kidman. Rumors also suggest that Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys are secretly engaged. Rumors that the reps also deny.

Just days ago we saw the couple holding hands on the beach. Everyone couldn’t help but notice a ring on the engagement finger. Yet, today Alicia Keys rides solo to distract the tabloids. Check out pictures below in the gallery:

Alicia Keys and her secret fiancé, hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz, are said to be buying Lenny Kravitz‘s penthouse duplex at 30 Crosby St. for $14.5 million, reports The Post’s Jennifer Gould Keil. Briefly home to Nicole Kidman, Kravitz’s ex, and Denzel Washington, the penthouse has been on the market for eight years at various prices. The couple’s rep, Katrina Boswell, denies they’re buying the apartment. Meanwhile, Hollywood producer Joe Roth is listing his One Beacon Court penthouse pad for $21.7 million with Corcoran Group. {Source}

According to US Magazine, Swizz Beatz proposed to Alicia Keys on her birthday. I guess  just couldn’t wait to make an “honest” woman out of her:

A pal tells UsMagazine.com that Beatz, 31 (who is currently divorcing wife Mashonda), proposed with a 7-carat sparkler right before her big day; the happy couple were photographed strolling on a Hawaii beach the day of the proposal, Jan. 24.
