Rihanna covers the November 2012 issue of Vogue Magazine (again).
The talented songstress is featured in a 7 page photo spread shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz and Vogue contributing author Jason Gay interviews her in a piece called “Rihanna: Unstoppable Artist.”
In the article, Rihanna discusses her career and how she feels that while she’s finally achieved the proper balance between her personal life vs. her professional life, the world just can’t get over that infamous “Chris Brown” beating incident.
“To the world, I feel like there’s no closure,” she says.
“There’s some obsession that’s continued even throughout when we weren’t friends or couldn’t be friends at all. Hated each other. The world hasn’t let go.
They haven’t seen any progress in our friendship, because they don’t see anything, really, besides the song.”
Controversially, she collaborated with Brown on a remix of a raunchy track from her last album called “Birthday Cake” (LISTEN).
Rihanna sat down with Oprah Winfrey a few months ago and confessed she still loved Brown and hoped he “finds peace.” Since that time, the pair has “reunited.”

‘s hair was layed like Kandi Burruss
(circa 2012) at T.I.’s private birthday bash
Saturday night (September 29, 2012).
The hilarious comedian (best known around the site for his Chateau Sheree Progress Report & his LIVE cover of the Tyler Perry fire) donned a short cropped ‘doo, similar to the real “housewife” of Atlanta‘s kool-aid colored cut of the past.

Sparkle, this Summer’s most anticipated film, highlights the glamourous and colorful fashions of the 60′s.
That “retro chic” style is incredible and we continue to see influences of the time period even in today’s fashions.
The classic film about three teenagers from Harlem who set their sights on making musical history in Motown has been brought back to life and it’s remake will be significant in more ways than one.
a.) Sparkle is Whitney Houston‘s last film. The actress/singer passed away only three months after production ended on the Salim Akil-directed project.
b.) Sparkle marks the acting debut of American Idol Jordin Sparks.
Houston and Sparks star in the film alongside Derek Luke, Mike Epps, Cee Lo Green, Carmen Ejogo, Tika Sumpter, Tamela Mann and Omari Hardwick.
Check out a few photos of the cast rocking retro fashions from the highly anticipated film + watch the SPARKLE official movie trailer below… Continue Reading…

shared the photo above of her weave-less tresses yesterday (July 24, 2012).
I noticed her photo as I was sitting in the chair taking on my own “weave-free” challenge.
As a certified member of the weave queen club, I’ve always felt that the versatility of fake hair far exceeds the time and effort it takes to take care of my own. But that’s just me.
Then again… do y’all emember the F*ck Natural Hair chick I posted last year?

While her sentiments are valid, there comes a time when it’s 105 degrees outside to just let it go.
So while I’m sure there are many other (including Beyonce), who have opted to shed the weaves & wigs because of the weather), I’m calling this Weave Free Wednesday (cause we never know how many inches of brazilian hair tomorrow may bring).
