McKenzie going straight


Ledisi Young (her given name meaning "to bring forth" in Nigerian) was born in the Big Easy, where she sang with the New Orleans Symphony Orchestra when she was eight years old and spent many adolescent hours watching her mother perform with a local R&B band, often in a nearby park. After the family relocated to Oakland, California, Ledisi followed her mother's lead and sang in a local band, but left to form her own identity and her own group. She became widely noted for her performances in Beach Blanket Babylon, a long-running San Francisco-based cabaret featuring song parodies, celebrity impersonations, and enormous hats; she got the gig after being nominated for a Shellie Award in 1990 for her role as Dorothy in a local version of The Wiz.
Ledisi grew up in a musical family; her mother sang in a Louisiana R&B band and her stepfather, Joseph Pierce,III, (deceased) was a drummer in the New Orleans area. Her biological father is soul singer &  She studied opera and piano for five years.

Teyana Taylor's Girly Girl TomBoy Style

One thing I like about Teyana Taylor is that she isn’t generic and doesn’t dress like most girls her age.

 She’s ever evolving in her fashion Taste and frankly it’s a refreshment to see.

Teyana is a girl who clearly is embracing her own fashion sense and not going with the mass produced fashion look of today.


This is one girl who clearly doesn’t look as if she took the clothes she’s wearing straight from a mannequin; rather she takes clothes, accessorizes them and gives them her own personality…I must say, it is a commendable effort, just take a look:

Young & Fit~

Fashion Forward~

Teyana She'Nay Taylor (born December 10, 1990) is an American singer, rapper, and dancer. She is signed to Star Trak Entertainment and is most notable for her debut single, "Google Me".

At the intersection of style and music you will find songstress and fashionista, Teyana Taylor.

 The raven-haired beauty recently sat down with Singersroom to discuss what happens when the individuality of style and creativity of music collide.

 When speaking about her own fashion choices, Teyana expressed that her unique style is at best indefinable. "I would say my style is indefinable. It's not something that's planned.

It's about telling a story with your choice of outfits," she goes on to say, "Fashion is a story."

In addition to chatting about fashion no-no's, the most stylish male performers and the motivation behind remixing "Marvin's Room," the Harlem native also pays homage to the place that gave birth to her creativity.

"I give all my thanks to Harlem," says Teyana. "It gave me that style and that swag. Harlem allowed me to be myself and do what I do." Follow us as we delve deeper into the mindset of urban fashion icon Teyana Taylor.

SR: In what ways do fashion and music intertwine?

Teyana Taylor: Oh that's easy! It's so simple. Your appearance brings out what you're singing. It's like if you're singing a jazz song and you match it with an outfit that expresses what you're singing. The music is the most important thing and the look comes with the sound pretty much. But then again, just be you because I wear Jordans with anything and with any song [Laughs].

SR: How would you define your unique style?

Teyana Taylor: Well I love fashion but I would say my style is indefinable. It's not something that's planned. It's about telling a story with your choice of outfits. For me it's natural. I don't wake up and say, “Ok what am I going to wear today?” I kind of just throw on what I feel and keep it moving.

SR: Hair definitely plays a part in fashion. What is your hair regime?

Teyana Taylor: I just try not to play in it and leave it alone [Laughs]. I wash it and I let it be – I don't even comb it. I don't do too much with my hair because I love it just the way it is. And yes I'm natural. My mommy would have a fit otherwise. If I wanted it in a different curl pattern I just flat iron it and then curl it with the curlers to get a different look but no perms!

SR: You recently remixed Drake's 'Marvin's Room' calling it "Her Room." Have you ever had a Marvin's room experience?

Teyana Taylor: Yes! I mean that song is based on a true story. That song is from the heart. That song was tears, pain and hurt. Sometimes people do remixes and it's like whatever. But the whole point in me doing the song is that I felt a connection to it. That was something I sang from my heart – it was raw. Sometimes it's not always about how much bravado someone has or what kind of notes they're hitting. I know a lot of people who can sing and can do a lot of runs, but that doesn't necessarily mean you're singing from the heart. I feel like every girl has been through a ‘Her Room' situation and all I can do is be real about it and not make any stereotypical type shit.

SR: What style do you find most attractive in men and are there any celebrities that epitomize that style to you?

Teyana Taylor: See the Harlem girl in me loves wife-beaters and Tims [Laughs]. I just love the whole Harlem boy swag. I'll pick that any day. But artists like Pharrell and Kanye, I love their fashion sense – these are guys who really know their style, they just get it.

SR: What are some of the biggest fashion faux pas or fashion don'ts you've seen?

Teyana Taylor: I mind my business honestly [Laughs]. I don't get into any of that because when I say how I feel it's a whole big thing.  There are a lot of fashion decisions that upset me and no no's that I would name right now but let's just say I mind my business. As long as I'm doing what I have to do and I'm not walking around looking crazy, I'm fine.

SR: What advice would you give to those who use fashion to express themselves but are often criticized for it?

Teyana Taylor: I would say just be yourself. I've always been in my own little world so I wouldn't really care what others said. A lot of things I wear the blogs either like or they don't like it, but at the end of the day when the right people enjoy your style that's all that should matter. I don't too much care for individuals who are always criticizing what you have on or people who have their opinions and look crazy themselves.

SR: Explain how your Harlem upbringing has had an affect on how you choose to express yourself through music and fashion?

Teyana Taylor: Oh Harlem, I give all my thanks to Harlem. It gave me that style and that swag and allowed me to be myself and do what I do. Before I got signed I've always been in my own world but I mean Harlem is the best.

SR: Finish this sentence: Fashion is…

Teyana Taylor: Fashion is a story.

Google Me Baby~


(Song I made about Rihanna)
HataZ! HataZ! HataZ!

HataZ U (spell it out) L.O.V.E you love to hate me
Hataz you (spell it out)B.L.O.G, with negative energy
Come on U know U like her style~
Although strictly a mans woman, and a woman that loves men,
my girl crush on everything from hair to overall style is on Ri Ri~
Happy & content with what I have;  I would love to come back as this island girl~

Rihanna's Hot~

Robyn Rihanna Fenty ~Born February 20, 1988), known mononymously as Rihanna, is a Barbadian recording artist and actress. Born in Saint Michael, Barbados, Rihanna moved to the United States at age 16 to pursue a recording career under the guidance of record producer Evan Rogers. She subsequently signed a contract with Def Jam Recordings.

This chica lights up this blog page, because her style is so versital & wearable.  I adore how she dares to simply be her & kills em every time.  Now there have been some outfits that I wouldn t wear, however she takes style risks that I can only adore & respect because she has the body to pull it off.

Rihanna possesses a mezzo-soprano vocal range, that spans nearly three octaves. Volume 65 of the Contemporary Black Biography book series notes that "Rihanna is the rare rhythm and blues (R&B) diva to emerge from the Caribbean world."   

 Becoming an international sensation, Rihanna is known for blending R&B with Caribbean music, such as reggae and dancehall.   At the time of her debut, reviewers referred to her as a "bubblegum queen" and her music to "teen pop."

 Even on a dress down day, this island girl is simply a pretty girl.

Rihanna was originally marketed as a reggae singer since she burst into the music scene in 2005, with a styles of pop, R&B and dancehall. Her music include various styles of musical genres, including contemporary R&B, dance-pop and the Caribbean music styles of reggae and dancehall.


With the release of Music of the Sun and its lead single "Pon de Replay", Jason Birchmeier of Allmusic described Rihanna's musical style as "synthesize Caribbean rhythms and beats with standard-issue urban dance-pop: Caribbean-inflected urban, if you will." 

Rihanna is described as utilizing "dancehall-lite beats and a reggae vocal cadence."   NME describes the singer as a "heady mix of dancehall, reggae and contemporary R&B." 

 Barry Walters of Rolling Stone considers Rihanna's A Girl Like Me to be "lightweight dancehall and R&B jams."

After the release of Good Girl Gone Bad, Allmusic's Andy Kellman credits Rihanna to be "as pop as pop gets." 

Ri Ri can act!  She did really well in this movie! 

Kelefa Sanneh of The New York Times described her hit "Umbrella" as a lightweight pop confection with a heavy hip-hop backbeat, a breezy love song enriched by those unexpectedly goth-sounding keyboards and by the incongruous hint of anguish in Rihanna’s girlish voice.

 Giving that island girl flavor~
 Cutest fire red I' ve ever seen~

 Hues of fusia & color~
 Cute short & Chic~

 Rihanna created her Believe Foundation in 2006 to help terminally ill children. Rihanna explained her reasons for starting the foundation saying, "When I was young and I would watch television and I would see all the children suffering, I always said: when I grow up, I want to help."  Rihanna is also heavily involved in the marketing of her native country of Barbados.  She began by including the flag and broken trident in many of her videos, shooting her album packaging for A Girl Like Me there.   In September 2007, she became the official face of tourism for Barbados, being included in many of their ad campaigns. She holds the honorary title of Ambassador for Culture and Youth in Barbados.
 Although Rihanna is heavily involved in the promotion of her country and works with the government in Barbados to do so, she is often criticized by other Barbadians for everything from her music to her successes and for wearing "skimpy clothes".  Rihanna, speaking on one incident, said, "I went to the beach and I had on a one-piece swimsuit with jeans They took the picture and they made it look like a top that was really revealing... There were radio programmes about it. It was a big deal for, like, three weeks straight — talking about I'm not setting a good example."  Rihanna states she was bullied at school. "Having lighter skin wasn’t a problem in my household, but it was when I went to school — which really confused me at first. The harassment continued to my very last day of elementary school."

  1. Rihanna has performed a number of concerts to raise funds for both charities and the Foundation and is a 2008 Cartier Love Charity Bracelet Ambassador.  For all things Rihanna please visit,,,,

Housewives Alert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


HotLanta Style Momma ~ NeNe Leakes
Move over, She by Shereé! Former Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members Shereé Whitfield and Lisa “Closet Freak” Wu-Hartwell aren’t the only ones with eyes on the runway. RHOA breakout-turned-Glee guest star NeNe Leakes is launching her own fashion line, EW has confirmed.
Between readying for a fifth season of Housewives and preparing for her role on Ryan Murphy’s fall sitcom The New Normal, Leakes has a partnership with global licensing agency Beanstalk in the works. Though no papers have been signed yet, the company said Leakes hopes to create pieces “designed to empower women to walk into a room and ‘own it’ — like NeNe herself” at this week’s Licensing Expo 2012 Las Vegas.
Beanstalk president and CEO Michael Stone praised Leakes’ “versatility,” “no-nonsense demeanor and entrepreneurial spirit” and said her “multi-faceted personality and aspirational style will translate well into products that will emotionally connect with her fans.”
Leakes follows in the footsteps of fellow reality stars turned fashion designers, including Nicole Richie, Lauren Conrad, and fellow Housewife (from Orange County) Gretchen Rossi. Then again, for every Lauren Conrad, there’s also a Jenni “J-Woww” Farley, whose Filthy Couture struggled to sell despite Farley’s Jersey Shore fame. Indeed, Conrad’s first time striking out as high-end fashion designer, well, struck out.

Somewhere in the ATL, Sheree Whitfield‘s head is about to explode. After already beating her in the acting department with not one, but two scripted roles, now her nemesis and former Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star NeNe Leakes is getting close to achieving another one of Ms. Whitfield’s dreams — launching a new clothing line!
Yes, it’s true. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NeNe Leakes is about to be even richer.

With checks from Glee and Ryan Murphy‘s upcoming series, The New Normal, already in her bank account (along with those Trump ones), the 44-year-old Bravo reality star is set to ink a deal with global licensing agency, Beanstalk.

The company plans to “leverage NeNe’s position in pop culture to offer consumers fashion-forward, affordable apparel and accessories designed to empower women to walk into a room and own it like NeNe herself.”
So, it would appear that this line is going to get off to a slightly better start than “She by Sheree.”

Add this to her many celebrity correspondent gigs and the $1 million she’s reportedly bringing in for the next season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta (yes, the highest salary of any Housewife), and Ms. NeNe Leakes seems to be doing pretty well for herself.
Maybe she should start looking at those $9 million home now.

It’s no secret that Nene Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has gone through a MAJOR transformation over the past few years. The diva has gone from drab to fab and is constantly making moves in the entertainment industry to further her career.

They say that the best payback is success and Nene is definitely showing her shade throwing former friend, Sheree Whitfield that talk is definitely cheap.

Not only has Nene stolen Sheree’s goals of becoming an actress, she has now dived head first into the fashion industry.

Forget She By Sheree, it’s all about that New-New by NeNe! In yet another stab at her former friend Sheree Whitfield, NeNe Leakes has decided to become a fashion designer!
