Having written a song called Smack a Bitch, is it any wonder Macy Gray would be outrageous enough to record a song about her vibrator?
Well that is exactly what the 90’s hit-maker did with B.O.B, a catchy tune that pays tribute to the singer’s Battery Operated Better: an uncomplicated mechanical fellow that Macy says “fits like a glove and is always ready for love.”
The market for plus size clothing and models to wear them has really taken off over the last few years. Curvy models are now gracing catwalks ((Marc Jacobs showcased plus size models during his Spring/Summer fashion show. )) and being showcased in major fashion magazines. Even music artists have gotten in on the act. Jill Scott has a collection of bras ((The Butterfly Bra )) for curvy girls that are sold exclusively through Ashley Stewart and now singer Macy Gray is also looking to enter the field. Macy first attempted to launch a curvy girl line back in 2008 but it didn’t really take off. Now the singer is ready to try and re-launch her “Humps” line with a new head designer and new inspiration. Macy said her recent performance at the opening of the new Esprit store in New York City was what motivated her to once again try her hand at fashion. Macy says she plans to be more hands on this time and that the public should look for “Humps” to officially re-launch in the spring of 2011.
Macy Gray is set to release her “The Sellout” album on May 17th and with a new album comes new promo shots- which you all know I live for. These pics were sent in to me by a fan and they are pretty typical of Macy- not too over the top. Look for the singer’s video for her first single, Beauty In The World, to be out soon, as Billboard Magazine reports having already gotten a glimpse of it. You can also catch Macy in the Tyler Perry’s film adaption of “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Was Enuf.”
