We attended the live show for NBC’s The Voice in Burbank, California tonight and now that we are home, we’re watching it again as it airs for the West Coast viewers. Can you say addicted to The Voice?
First, I have to say that Christina Aguilera looked beyond great. She is starting to look like Christina not so much when she first hit the scene with “Genie in a Bottle”, but more so when Donatella Versace started to take Xtina under her wings. She is starting to become my Latina lady crush. During the commercial break, a fan proclaimed he had traveled from Brazil to see Christina. She wasted no time to walk half way across the stage to his side of the room to give him a hug. There was a collective “DAYUM” in the room when she got up because I don’t think anyone was expecting her to be shaped like a sistah (from the front side) if you know what I mean. She has slimmed down yet still has curves-I want to find her fitness trainer. I’m also loving her style this season. Speaking of style, Cee-Lo continues to keep the show exciting this time channeling Elvis.
Okay, now the show. Being a part of the live audience was amazing. If you love watching The Voice on television, just imagine our
I don’t care who you are. If you were a child of the 70s or 80s, at one point in time in your life, especially if you were a little girl, you liked The Spice Girls. Admittedly, I liked Mel B originally because she was the only black one but I grew to like her Scary Spice attitude, which was more spunk than scare. Throughout the years she’s been making music here and there but Mel B recently announced on her website that she re-signed with EMI Music Australia, after originally signing with them back in 1994.
Currently recording new material to be released in late 2012, Mel B had this to share about the signing, “I’m overly excited to finally announce this amazing global partnership deal back home with EMI Music. I know I have mentioned doing music in the past but for legal reasons I was not in a position to release any new music. For my fans, I am happy and proud to say my music WILL be heard this year and that is for sure a promise I’m over the moon to say the least. Love me or hate me, scary spice is back, hahahaha!!!”
It’s amazing that she even has time to record, with her family, her gig with The X-Factor: Australia, her workout business, her lollipop business and her deal with Weight Watchers Australia! Multi-tasking mom extrodinare! She also managed to fit a photoshoot in for Fabulous Magazine and the pictures are just that. Check them out, when you continue…
Whitney Houston will obviously be the star of this version of Sparkle, unlike the original where the focus was on Sparkle played by Irene Cara, and of course Sister played by the beautiful Lonette McKee. I promised myself that I was going to judge this movie with an open-mind because I am a die-hard fan of the original movie. Judging by the trailer, there are a lot of changes that’s going to be hard for a Sparkle fan like myself to swallow, but at the same time the there are some differences worth embracing, like LIGHT. We all know the original could use a candle or two in the background. And, like hearing Mama Effie, played by Whitney Houston, singing Precious Lord instead of Sparkle. Whitney Houston’s untimely passing, will give this movie a broader spotlight, and I hope it doesn’t disappoint.
The film is not scheduled to hit theaters until August 17th, but in the mean time we have this trailer to watch.
Watch the trailer when you continue, and LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!!!.
Austin, TX, many celebrities, athletes, and businessmen came out in support of the Beverly Kearney’s Sixth Annual Minority Mentorship Symposium during Texas Relays at the University of Texas. Ledisi, Kenny Latimore, LeToya Luckett, Keisha Knight-Pulliam, Michelle Williams, Malinda Williams, Bun B, Beverly Johnson, and India. Arie were all in attendance to at the star-studded symposium, Intimate Conversations with Greatness. The goal of the symposium according to Coach Beverly Kearney, who has been honored by BET and CNN for her excellence in education, is to give students an opportunity to understand the hard work that goes into being successful:
…annual mentorship program, which encourage real-life reality as it relates to our speakers sharing how they transitioned through failure to success. Our students need the truth of struggle to success – not just the glitz and glamor.
Check out a few pics of celebs doing positive things and looking good doing it. I giggled when I saw LeToya Luckett and Michelle Williams on stage, I bet they have a lot in common
