10 Best Dressed: 2014 American Music Awards


The 2014 American Music Awards happened on Sunday, and there were many stars gracing the red carpet. There were lots of black, some bright colors and, as usual, a lot of skin. With so many looks to choose from, these are ten of my faves. Take a look at who wore what and by whom.

Jordin Sparks also showed some leg in a sparkly halter neck Halston Fall 2014 dress.

Tracee Ellis Ross killed this look. I love how the turtleneck and her high bun look perfect together. But she turned around and boom she’s backless.

This color should be banned, but Rita Ora pulled off the look in this bright yellow Zac Posen gown.

I don’t know what it is that I like most about Zendaya Coleman‘s Georgine gold ensemble. Paired with the blue bra and her curly hair makes her look like a disco princess. Together, it just works.

New Video: Beyonce Snatches Wigs In “7/11” Video Release



The queen of everything, Beyonce, released the video for “7/11” and she just might break the internet. The video shows her dancing and twerking on a balcony and in a hotel suite. The song isn’t about much except she swings her hands from side to side then throw them in the air. She also kicks her legs side to side also kicks them in the air while spinning around on a chair. Oh, and she likes to smack it.

As usual, Bey’s beats are very catchy and “7/11” does not disappoint. And neither does her dance skills. Beyonce Platinum Edition drops on 11/24/14, but two new songs leaked on Friday. Also check out the audio of the single “Ring Off” which is about her parents’ marriage. It is a new sound, and the words are so touching.

Jaden and Willow Smith Are Far From Your Average Teenagers

From left: Willow and Jaden Smith.The offspring of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, Jaden 16, and Willow 14, opened up to  T Magazine recently to discuss Prana energy (meditation), school being overrated and how Willow possesses the ability to control time. Suffice it to say, these are not your run-of-the-mill teens. They read about Quantum physics and ancient text, and they think conventional education is a waste of time.

The siblings are self-confident, self-conscious and have a deep sense of who they are. After reading this interview, we can’t wait to see what they will grow up to become. Willow’s “3″ is available now on iTunes. Jaden’s “Cool Tapes Vol. 2″ will be available beginning at 12 a.m. with the download of his new app called Jaden Experience.


What have you been reading?


WILLOW: Quantum physics. Osho.

JADEN: “The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life” and ancient texts; things that can’t be pre-dated.

I’m curious about your experience of time. Do you feel like life is moving really quickly? Is your music one way to sort of turn it over and reflect on it?

WILLOW: I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that’s how I know it doesn’t exist.

JADEN: It’s proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe. It’s relative to beings and other places. But on the level of being here on earth, if you are aware in a moment, one second can last a year. And if you are unaware, your whole childhood, your whole life can pass by in six seconds. But it’s also such a thing that you can get lost in.

WILLOW: Because living.

JADEN: Right, because you have to live. There’s a theoretical physicist inside all of our minds, and you can talk and talk, but it’s living.

WILLOW: It’s the action of it.

What are some of the themes that recur in your work?

JADEN: The P.C.H. being one of them; the melancholiness of the ocean; the melancholiness of everything else.

WILLOW: And the feeling of being like, this is a fragment of a holographic reality that a higher consciousness made.

JADEN: [bursts into laughter] As soon as me and Willow started releasing music, that’s one thing that the whole world took away is, okay, they unlocked another step of honesty. If these guys can be honest about everything, then we can be more honest.

Do you think of your new music as a continuation of your past work?

JADEN: I think Willow’s had a huge evolution.

WILLOW: I mean, “Whip My Hair” was a great thing. When I look back I think, “Wow, I did so much for young black girls and girls around the world. Telling them that they can be themselves and to not be afraid to be themselves.” And I’m doing that now but in a whole different way, coming from source energy and universal truths. People will be, like, “Oh, I’m not going to make a song about exactly how I feel, all the bad ways that I feel, and put it out in the world so everyone can judge me.” But for me, it’s a part of me, it’s my artistic journey.

JADEN: That’s another thing: What’s your job, what’s your career? Nah, I am. I’m going to imprint myself on everything in this world.

This month, Jaden (left) and Willow Smith both released new abums.

How do you write? What’s your process?

JADEN: She gets in the booth and just starts singing.

WILLOW: I mean, the beat is usually what moves me. Or I think of concepts. Then when I hear a beat that is, like, elaborating on that concept, I just go off.

JADEN: She freestyles and finds out what she likes. Same thing with me.

WILLOW: You piece it together. You piece together those little moments of inspiration.

How does fashion relate to what you do?

JADEN: Willow just dropped a song (“Cares”), let me quote the lyrics: “I do not care what people say.” We both don’t really care. I like to wear things that I make, but I throw it on as though I was throwing on anything. It looks cool, sometimes.

WILLOW: I like to go to places with my high-fashion things where there are a lot of cameras. So I can just go there and be like, “Yep, yep, I’m looking so sick.” But in my regular life, I put on clothes that I can climb trees in.

You mentioned breathing earlier, and it’s also an idea that recurs in your songs.

WILLOW: Breathing is meditation; life is a meditation. You have to breathe in order to live, so breathing is how you get in touch with the sacred space of your heart.

JADEN: When babies are born, their soft spots bump: It has, like, a heartbeat in it. That’s because energy is coming through their body, up and down.

WILLOW: Prana energy.

JADEN: It’s prana energy because they still breathe through their stomach. They remember. Babies remember.

WILLOW: When they’re in the stomach, they’re so aware, putting all their bones together, putting all their ligaments together. But they’re shocked by this harsh world.

JADEN: By the chemicals and things, and then slowly…

WILLOW: As they grow up, they start losing.

JADEN: You know, they become just like us.

So is the hardest education the unlearning of things?

WILLOW: Yes, basically, but the crazy thing is it doesn’t have to be like that.

JADEN: Here’s the deal: School is not authentic because it ends. It’s not true, it’s not real. Our learning will never end. The school that we go to every single morning, we will continue to go to.

WILLOW: Forever, ‘til the day that we’re in our bed.

JADEN: Kids who go to normal school are so teenagery, so angsty.

WILLOW: They never want to do anything, they’re so tired.

JADEN: You never learn anything in school. Think about how many car accidents happen every day. Driver’s ed? What’s up? I still haven’t been to driver’s ed because if everybody I know has been in an accident, I can’t see how driver’s ed is really helping them out.

WILLOW: I went to school for one year. It was the best experience but the worst experience. The best experience because I was, like, “Oh, now I know why kids are so depressed.” But it was the worst experience because I was depressed.

So what’s next?

JADEN: I have a goal to be just the most craziest person of all time. And when I say craziest, I mean, like, I want to do like Olympic-level things. I want to be the most durable person on the planet.

WILLOW: I think by the time we’re 30 or 20, we’re going to be climbing as many mountains as we can possibly climb.

Just Married: Solange Knowles and Alan Ferguson in New Orleans

It was a glorious day for the Knowles family on Sunday when 28-year-old Solange Knowles married longtime boyfriend, 51-year-old Alan Ferguson in New Orleans. Solange almost broke Instagram with her wedding pics. The couple arrived at their wedding on white bicycles true to Solange’s original style.

The caped dress is by her friend Humberton Leon who designed the gown via Kenzo. Solange also wore a white backless jumpsuit by Stephane Rolland and we are drooling over it, Alan wore a white Lanvin suit with black, gold tipped shoes. Everyone wore white and it was beautiful. Solange is truly a class act.

The happy couple walked down the aisle to Donny Hathaway’s, “I Love The Lord, He Heard My Cry.” The night also included performances by musician friends Kelela, Questlove, and Kindness—and a dance off between Solange and her son Julez to “No Flex Zone.” Check out the wedding portraits.
