Lil Kim celebrated her 34th birthday last night by throwing herself a grand party at the Mansion Nightclub in Miami, Florida. Flanked by friends LisaRaye McCoy and fellow rapper, Trina, Kim walked the red carpet wearing a revealing black leather & mesh number that showed off every inch of the rap divas petite frame.
LisaRaye and Trina looked spiffy as well.
Dior Beauty, in conjunction with “Operation Smile”, recently held an event in Santa Monica, California for make-up artists. Each artist was asked to bring along a celebrity client as his or her date and for each couple that showed up “Operation Smile” would donate, or perform, one reconstructive surgery on a needy child. Among those in attendance were rapper Lil Kim and actresses Garcelle Beauvais and Meagan Good.
Rapper Lil Kim was spotted recently shooting a new video in of all places- Japan. These photos were sent to me via e-mail but with very little info. So I have no idea what the single is or why they went all the way to Japan to shoot it. Like Mya, Lil Kim might have a strong Japanese fans base that has missed her and is willing to give her music a chance. Quite a few R n’ B females over the years have found the Japanese to be far more accepting of their music than Americans. Mya just released a new album over there last month, while Eve and Amerie have each had recent hits in the country. So maybe lil Kim is following in their footsteps and releasing music just for the Japanese/overseas fan base. Time will tell.
Singer Kelis and rapper Lil Kim both took to the stage today, on day two of the Way Out West Music Festival. Neither Kim nor Kelis are signed to record labels at the moment or have music to promote, but both ladies have enough of a following, especially overseas, to have landed prime spots on the bill. Gothenburg, Sweeden was the place of this years event and Kelis especially has a huge European fan base. But the Swedes love their rap as well and that’s where Lil Kim comes in.
