Lil Kim vs Nicki Minaj

. The Brooklyn rapper said there are underlying reasons for the recent attacks on the Young Money rapper. Every female rapper who claims she's the "best" is taking subliminal shots at the other MCs .Nicki may not be the best but she's damn sure the most popular at the moment.  Although its clean Minaj is following in Lil Kim footsteps with the often overt fashion references to Queen Bee and Barbie.  Lil Kim wore colorful wigs, provocative clothing, added bigger breasts and smaller nose.  Lil Kim hung around Biggie and Diddy camp and rapped about sex like a dude.  Nicki following wearing colorful wigs, modernized style sexy clothing, butt injections, rap with Young Money and rap about sex also like a dude.  They are really similar.

Lil Lim performed at Filmore in New York last evening with Ray J on the microphone.  Ray J made an indirect reference to Nicki Minaji stating "its alot of people biting her style". I ant saying no names, but you know who.  Lil Kim follows saying, "We love her! (speaking about Minaj).  We just want to pay homage,so we can rock together.  Basically, Lil Kim isn't doing well in record sells so she wants to rap with the popular Nicki Minaj.  Minaj probably said no to the collaboration.  Now, Lil Kim feels disrespected. Lil Kim says at the concert, It's all about respect. You respect me. I respect you. If you don't respect me then f*ck you.  Wow ! Does Lil’ Kim have a point? Does Nicki Minaj owe Lil’ Kim? Is newcomer’s appropriation of industry veteran’s style really disrespectful? Or could the borrowing of vocal technique and style be a homage within itself?  Lil’ Kim hasn’t had a hit song in five years since ‘Lighter’s up.’ Meanwhile Minaj is a new hip hop phenomenon with collaborations with some the industry’s hottest stars and a highly anticipated album. Not to mention its rumored Diddy is her new manager.  Lil Kim is the baddest rap diva but Nicki Minaj is the hottest rapper right now.  It shouldn't matter who is the best.  Why black people fight over titles.  You can't be the baddest, sexiest rapper forever.  There will be a time to give up the mike.  Lil Kim body is in shape for now but what about 10 or 20yrs from now.  Move on,  I don't see Madonna upset with Lady Gaga or Brittney Spears.  Madonna is honored to have these ladies look up to her .  It like a child wearing their mother's shoes.  Nicki Minaj admired Lil Kim or her manager transformed her into Lil Kim modernized.  I can say, I would like to see them collaborate together.  It should be hottest.  Come come strong black sisters, make history!

What Nicki Minaj tweeted



Influenced by the unpredictable rhymes of Missy Elliot along with the sexually charged attitudes of Lil' Kim and Foxy Brown, Jamaica, Queens, native Nicki Minaj was discovered thanks to her {/MySpace} page. It was there that Dirty Money Entertainment CEO Fendi first heard her ability to freestyle and first laid eyes on her steamy set of promo shots. With killer curves she was obviously proud to flaunt plus a background in the performing arts thanks to the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music.




Jeggings (Denim Leggings)

Jeggings lovers unite. What are jeggings? Jeggings are half jeans and half leggings. This doesn't mean literally half in half but the fabric is stretchy like leggings.  They look like skinny jeans, but  they're much more comfortable. I like wearing my leggings with a top and blazer for a more polished look, and with flip-flops and a tee when on a hot summer day.  You don't have to worry about ironing or dry cleaning denim leggins.  They are quick, easy and stylish trend for this season.

The jegging trend is a popular trend everywhere that is both fashion forward and comfortable. I tried on a few and love the way they fit.  Beauty Within TV favorite jeggings selection is from the Gap, Top Shop, Asos, Bloomingdales ,Nordstrom and If you are looking for premium 'jegging' style jeans one of BW favorites is Superfine scribble leggings is a fabulously soft and stretchy pair in Sienna brown with quilting at front and stitching at back pockets. Another favorite Citizens of Humanity black pair. look for Rayon and Cupro in the fibre content, and you'll find the softest, stretchiest jeans you've ever worn.  Getting ready for fall and winter, you can wear jeggings with boots.

Lady Gaga new video "Alejandro"

This video is a tribute to Madonna in the 90's.  Lady Gaga in platinum blond  bobbed hair style frolicking around in underwear ( soo Madonna), men dancing around reminds me of Express Yourself, Vogue and Erotica. Lady Gaga being a Catholic  also like Madonna wearing a priest robe and putting rosemary beads in her mouth, Madonna in" Like a Prayer" video but instead put rosemary beads on a black man feet.  Remember that was the actor Leon from "Five Heartbeats"


Karate Kid Movie Premiere Red Carpet


Smith's Red Carpet at Karate Kid movie premiere



Will Smith, Jada, Willow, Jaden, Jackie Chan, Trey Smith

At the LA premiere Jada was tanned bronzed and looking ever lovely. Her bronze glow was matched by her Bronze dress by Rafael Cennamo Fall 2010 along with gold shoes.  The strapless pleated short leather dress was also paired with bronze Pierre Hardy Geometric platform sandals.  Jada looked stunning but it was too one- tone and could have another color instead of all gold.  It was very Austin Powers. Jaden was clearly inspired by Michael Jackson, whilst Willow embraced every animal print she could find.  I like Willow look but would have chose a leopard skirt for a more girly look.

Ballerina Inspired Look

This month's Marie Claire reported that tulle is in for spring/summer 2010. To which I say...tulle? I adore them, Its like the tutu we wore at ballerina recitals as little girls. This style is patterned after the full, short gowns worn by prima ballerinas. Ballerina styles are great for accentuating a small waist and well-toned upper body as they have very snugbodies. In addition while wearing a tulle skirt, you’ll feel flirtatious and full of fun in the short, poufy skirt. Some dresses come with tulle overlays that add fanciful style to the look of skirt.  Tulle isn't for everyone, its comes with your personality.  I love them, maybe its the dancer in me as much, a flirty dress that is fun and feminine and makes you feel girly.

Designs by Allison Parris price $375 for tulle skirt in a variety of colors nude, olive. navy and saffron
