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.

The vicious custody battle between Usher Raymond
and his ex-wife Tameka Foster-Raymond
continues but rest assured, it’s ALMOST over.
As you know, Usher is seeking sole custody of the couples two young sons, Usher Raymond V, 5, and Naviyd Ely Raymond, 3, and the statements heard inside that Fulton County courtroom would make for a hellavu great movie.
The storyline would go something like this:
a superstar R&B singer marries a woman who his family doesn’t like. He makes a few babies, but realizes his fans don’t like the “married” version of himself. Instead of riding for his family, he decides to ride for his career. Divorces his ex (but only on paper) and then proceeds to “pretend” to be single… but all the while he’s dipping in and out of his now “ex” wife’s bed. ?Fast forward a few years and his star has risen significantly and he’s chosen to move on… but wait… there’s one problem. His “ex” wife who has custody of his kids, wants to move on too and his ego won’t allow it, especially if she chooses to move on to another high-profile entertainer.?
But I digress… that’s merely my imagination… this is “real” life. ?Add in the fact that Tameka just buried one of her sons a few weeks ago and we get a story that would melt even the most heartless among us.

Gabby caused a stir not only for her Olympic medal wins in London but for her hair, while she dismissed it with the maturity of someone twice her 16 years of age,?her team swooped into action and enlisted Hollywood hairstylist Ted Gibson to tame her mane prior to a few public appearances.
