RIHANNA BARES HER BREASTS
Rihanna left little to imagination on her way to dinner in N.Y. the other night, wearing a mesh top with no bra, that clearly exposed her breasts. At first when she saw the paps, she covered her breasts then smiled and let them take pics. Maybe this is not a huge deal, but something about this is starting to feel like Britney Spears-at-the-Barber to me. This isn’t a photo shoot or artistic endeavour or even a huge media event. Who exposes themselves on the way to dinner? Rihanna has said it was the photographer’s fault for taking her pic with flash, but I’m thinking this isn’t her first day being Rihanna or knowing camera’s have flash so….. I can’t call it.
Her bajan pastor, bishop Vibert Lowe is putting it to prayer, saying “A lot of people have been praying for her and hoping that she will drop these bad habits. As a young lady she’s not setting a good example. Young people look to her as a mentor, they regard her as an idol and copy her lifestyle,”….Rihanna recently attributed her racy image and behaviour to her bajan background saying that basically embracing her sexuality is a cultural thing.
BETTY WHITE GETS SOME THUG MOTIVATION
Young Jeezy has a fan that might surprise you… He opened up to VIBE Magazine about his newest fan Betty White. The two met earlier this year and he told VIBE “We were just chopping it up and she was saying she’s a fan …. Then, we were talking about the Golden Girls and how much of a fan I was of the show when I was growing up. It was her birthday at the time, and she just turned 90. You know, she just cool and she been through a lot, and she still here. A lot of her co-stars are gone but she still going strong. I was trying to see if she is taking anything some kind of herb diet I mean I need to know I want to be around when I am 90, too.”
(I’m sorry, this is the cutest thing ever…)
REALITY TV FOR A CAUSE
Reality TV is filled with JUNK. In fact, cable is even packed with reality shows like “American Pickers”, “Pawn Stars”, “Auction Hunters” and “Storage Wars” that are literally all about junk. That’s why a show like this is so needed. Someone is pitching a reality show about two kids: Seven-year-old cancer patient Luis Danvers and his six-year-old friend Jack Szablewski.
Luis was diagnosed with leukemia in 2009, and is still awaiting a match for a bone marrow transplant. Jack doesn’t have cancer . . . but even at just six years old, he’s a hardcore supporter of the fight against cancer. They met at a bone marrow drive. The show hasn’t been picked up yet . . . but theoretically, it would be about the kids’ efforts to encourage as many people as possible to register as donors. Jack says, quote, “People need to get swabbed because we want to save Luis’ life.” Two years ago, Jack was expelled from school for growing his hair too long. But he was doing it so he could donate it to a chemo patient.
Just …. Adorable.. JEEZE. Get these kids a show already!
SANCHEZ STAYS BUSY
REGGAE singer Sanchez has not appeared on a Jamaican stage in quite a while, and is spending more time as a producer. Sanchez, whose given name is Kevin Jackson, rose to prominence in 1988 with his cover of Jermaine Jackson’s Lonely Won’t Leave Me Alone, and says he is currently working on two albums. The first, Nuh Kotch, has already been completed with five tracks. The second is a gospel set, which is yet to be titled. Sanchez says he has some upcoming international engagements in Canada, Europe, the United States and the Caribbean.
ICONIC CHURCH FIRE
A three-storey church which reggae icon Bob Marley filmed the video of Is This Love was destroyed in London on Thursday night. According to BBC reports, the fire started on the ground floor and spread to the roof of the Christ Apostolic Church in King’s Cross. It took 40 firefighters to tackle the blaze which severely damaged the building. There was no reports of fatalities.
No cause was given for the blaze. Is This Love, from Bob Marley’s 1978 Kaya album, was filmed at the building that same year and features British model Naomi Campbell, who was seven years old at the time. The song peaked at number 9 in the United Kingdom charts.
