We all heard the saying “birds of the same feather, flock together” this holds true when it comes to success in life. You can’t be around the same people, doing the same things that haven’t shown you any results. If you’re around people who take away from you, rather than add to you, you have to start eliminating people out of your life. One thing is for sure that each interaction you have with someone you have to elevate your mind and start having that successful mind.
When you’re around successful people you can see the drive, confidence, and attitude about them. They own themselves and own everything they do. They are not afraid of being great! Why should you be? Start thinking about the people you surround yourself with! The only way you’ll attract successful people is if you start having a successful mind, confidence, and attitude.
People who are negative and pessimistic. Avoid the dream killers. Once you start making noise a lot of people won’t like it, but by then you’re in a new playing field where everyone is winning!
I absolutely LOVE what Angela Simmons is doing with her new website angelaiam.com!
Basically angelaiam is going to be a one stop shop for music, fashion, hair, beauty and current events. I think angelaiam is super innovative and is going to be a huge success! It’s great to see that Angela is out here doing positive things and being independent instead of piggy backing off of her family’s name and legacy. She is a true inspiration!
Check out a behind the scenes video of Angela doing a shoot for angelaiam and discussing the concept of the site.
I can’t wait until angelaiam launches! Whata bout you?
So last night MySpace had a party at the El Rey Theater in Hollywood and of course it was filled with nothing but celebrities.
One person’s ensemble that caught my attention was none other than Miley Cyrus. I loved EVERYTHING about her outfit but I’m a little confused by her pants. The pants are half and half, boyfriend jeans/sweat pants. I really don’t know how to feel about these pants. Part of me likes them on her and part of me thinks they are tacky. I wish she would have just went with one or the other. But overall Miley looked great and she can pretty much pull off any look so I guess it really doesn’t matter at the end of the day.
Tell me what you guys think about Miley’s pants from last night’s MySpace event, dope or nope?
H&M has done it AGAIN!
This time they are teaming up with parisian high fashion designer Isabel Marant for their latest couture collaboration!
Of course the collection is going to feature women’s wear and accessories but it will also be featuring children’s clothing and for the first time ever Isabel Marant will be designing menswear for the H&M collab.
I’m honestly looking forward to this collection! Isabel Marant NEVER disappoints! I haven’t been impressed with a high fashion H&M collab since the Versace collaboration so I hope Isabel Marant can help H&M step it up!
There’s no pictures of the full collection yet or price points but stay tuned here for updates! Also be prepared to hit those H&M lines when the collection hits stores November 14, 2013.
It’s pretty evident that singer Ciara is in love. All her current songs have been about how in love she is.
Her newest love song (about her boyfriend Future) just premiered and is titled “Super Turnt Up”. “Super Turnt Up” is a love song but is pretty upbeat. Ciara is even rapping on the end. *Stale Face*
Honestly, this song is less than amazing. I’m tired of Ciara making these high school sounding songs. Her sound hasn’t evolved since “Goodies”. Ciara has a sexy new look and an amazing voice and I really wish she would start utilizing it to the fullest instead of making these pointless bubblegum songs. But I’ll let you guys be the judge.
Check out “Super Turnt Up” from Ciara and be on the lookout for her upcoming album which should be hitting stores July 9th.
Rihanna lived every fashionista’s fantasy this past week when she was personally given the keys to legendary designer CoCo Chanel’s Parisan apartment.
In true Rihanna fashion, she Instagramed the entire ordeal
Must be nice!
Check out some pictures of Rihanna decked in all white and gold, exploring CoCo Chanel’s apartment!
Yesterday, music extraordinaire, Pharrell Williams celebrated the ten year anniversary of his clothing line, Billionaire Boys Club.
10 years ago Pharrell teamed up with Nigo, the founder of the street brand A Bathing Ape, to create his Billionaire Boys Club brand. 10 years later the brand is still around and flourishing!
If you’re not familiar with Billionaire Boys Club, it’s a street wear brand that is highly influenced by the skateboard culture.
The ten year celebration took place at Tribeca Canvas in New York City last night with an intimate dinner and celebration. The likes of Jay-Z, Beyonce, Terry Richardson and much more attended the celebration.
Man, I wish I was there!
Check out some pictures from Pharrell’s ten year Billionaire Boys Club celebration! And congrats to Pharrell on his success!
No one can dispute the fact that Kanye West is a musical genius!
Last night Kanye debuted the visual for his new song “New Slaves” on the sides of 66 buildings in 6 countries around the world including the U.S, Canada and France just to name a few. Yes, that’s right. This man projected his new video on these buildings around the world and it definitely made people stop and pay attention. Marketing at it’s finest!
First of all I’d just like to say despite all the hoopla Kanye has going on with the media and Kim Kardashian, “New Slaves” is on point and definitely a song that the industry needs and that the world needs. Kanye isn’t trying to sugar coat anything in this song but people need that realness in a day and age like this.
In a nut shell “New Slaves” talks about how black people are still slaves just new slaves to jewelry, corporations, cars and other material things. He also touches on racism as well. The song is very real and unapologetic. The video is straight forward, simple and in your face. I love the fact that it’s kind of gritty and in black and white. This video gave me goosebumps at one point!
Kanye is ALWAYS innovative and taking his career and music to the next level. He always sets himself apart from what everyone else is doing and goes left field and that’s why I admire him so much as an artist. He takes risks and is not afraid to say what other people are afraid to say.
“New Slaves” is super dope and I can’t wait to hear the mastered version and whatever else Mr. West has up his sleeve. He NEVER disappoints.
Hopefully this song will heighten people’s awareness of what’s going on in our generation and create conversation and dialect and spark change.
This man is a genius. It is undeniable whether you like him or not.
Check out a viewing from Ontario, Canada last night of the “New Slaves” visual and tell me what you think!
Dope or nope.
Kelly Rowland’s new song “Dirty Laundry” has everyone talking!
On the new track Kelly Rowland gets super personal while singing about being envious of Beyonce’s success and being abused in a past relationship.
The track is pretty bland as most Kelly Rowland songs usually are but I think people’s fascination with the song is the fact that Kelly is actually giving us a small dose of what life has been like for her. Kelly is usually very private so this shakes things up a bit.
It’s refreshing to finally hear a song from Kelly that doesn’t involve sex.
Check out Kelly’s new song “Dirty Laundry” which will be featured on her upcoming album, “Talk A Good Game”.
Speaking of Solange, Kendrick Lamar recently hopped on her song “Looks Good With Trouble” off her “True” EP.
In the song Solange sings a sweet, soft song about someone who she is feeling and wants to get into some trouble with. Kendrick added a decent little verse at the end where he talks about being on tour and thinking about a woman he’s feeling.
Check out “Looks Good With Trouble” by Solange featuring Kendrick Lamar and tell me what you think!
Dope or nope?
