New Alicia Keys Photo Shoot

Alicia Keys Now I’m sure you guys remember the last photo shoot pics I posted of Alicia and how displeased I was with them. I thought they were dull, boring and totally unimaginative. Well someone heard my cries of unhappiness, went back to the drawing board and came up with something ten times better. New pics of Alicia have surfaced, taken by the same photographer, Thierry Legoues, and they are stunning. It’s obvious a team of hair, make-up and stylists were brought in to pull off this shoot and the results are simply gorgeous.

Your Weekly Dose Of Beyonce

Now I know you guys did not think we were going to go an entire week without posting something on one of our favorite Brown Sistas. Beyonce seems to be keeping a somewhat low profile these days but she was spotted out twice this week in the company of her long time s/o, Jay Z. Posting random pics of Beyonce doing nothing in particular is rather boring to me so I rarely do it anymore. However, these pics of Bey at the press conference to announce the opening of the 40/40 Club in Las Vegas really caught my eye. Beyonce seems to be giving off that stand-by-my-man politician’s wife vibe. Not only is she dressed like a younger version of Nancy Reagan, but the way she so lovingly looks upon Jay Z at the podium is exactly how politician’s wives are taught to look at their husbands when they are speaking in public

New Alicia Keys Photo Shoot

Alicia Keys Several new pics from a recently done photo shoot of singer Alicia Keys have been released to the public. I am always excited when sistas come out with new material because I am curious to see what new image/style they will convey with their new albums. Sadly, very few women think to totally change their image from record to record, as Janet Jackson and Madonna used to do back in their heyday. At best, sistas will get a new hairstyle and call it a day. This bores me. I want to be excited and Alicia is not exciting me. She looks the same here as she did with her last album. Yes, she is a lovely girl and a gifted singer/songwriter- but I still want more.

Candids: Ciara, Rihanna & More

Singer Ciara took time off from headlining the Screamfest tour to promote Rocawear’s I Will Not Lose campaign at Macys Herald Square. I cannot even feign the slightest bit of interest in this story because I really think it’s boring at this point. What are we suppose to be buying, the sob stories in these commercials of the clothes? I want to see a hot fashion spread or something from Ciara, anything except what we are getting now. Rocawear has a beautiful young woman as the face of their women’s line and yet has no idea what to do with her.

Inside Vibe Vixen’s Final Issue

Final Vixen As previously reported, Vibe Vixen has released it’s final issue with Rihanna on the cover, and in true Vibe style, they sent me my digital and print issues weeks late. I am somewhat forgiving though as this issue doesn’t appear to be half as boring as many of the others. Hoping to go out with a bang, Vixen not only featured Rihanna on the cover and in an amazing fashion spread, but also had a great round table discussion with various women in the entertainment field about the representation of Black women in the media and even threw in a little scandal by featuring a very in depth interview with Karrine Steffans. Oh, and did I mention fellow Brown Sista blogger, Natasha Eubanks of YBF, is also featured in the magazine?

Karrine Steffans: Vixen Diaries

Karrine Steffans Video vixen Karrine Steffans has sat down with Essence magazine to talk about her upcoming book, The Vixen Diaries, and as usual she holds nothing back. Among other things, Karrine touches on her relationship with her mother and why she was able to forgive certain men in her life who may have wronged her but not the woman who gave her life. I found the interview to somewhat interesting, not enough to make me buy the book, but interesting nonetheless.
