Last night, the New York Chapter of The Recording Academy paid tribute to Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys at a dinner held at Cipriani's:
Over the years Alicia's fashion sense have been quite questionable but this outfit right here will leave you completely bamboozled as you try to understand it. The gloves could have stayed at home but those shoes, um no Alicia. She needed to be arrested by the fashion police for those alone. I've always hated high-waisted pants on big boned women. I notice how this look has become a popular trend this year especially with the R&B diva's. It certainly isn't a look I can see myself adopting any time soon. I guess pro-active is not working again either because the HQ close-ups show her face has been PLASTERED with foundation like how you'd heavily plaster icing on a cake. Overall, this is Alicia not looking her greatest. She looked lovely on 106 but here, not so much.
Alicia's mama (2nd left), J Records boss Clive Davis (far right) and LA Reid (2nd far right) were on offer to give their congrats. Other honorees included Bon Jovi, Donnie McClurkin and the Creators of West Side Story.
Last night, hottie Chris Brown attended the US Weekly Hot Hollywood Party at the Opera nightclub Hollywood, California:
Hot he looked in deed. His official site ChrisBrownWorld wants you to help them pick the cover for his new album Exclusive but BOTH covers suck to me. They could have at least given us more variation. Meh.
Mary J Blige also attended the event:
Mary and Keyshia Cole are rocking similar hair styles now. Who OWNS it?
Last night, Will.I.Am had an album release party at the W Hotel on September 26, 2007 in Westwood, California. Here's who attended:
Mel B was there looking absolutely fab, and she brought along her hubby Stephen Belafonte for the ride.
Who else was there?
Will.i.am of course, as well as Melody Thornton, Ne-yo and Will.i.am's Black Eyed Peas bandmate Fergie.
Keyshia Cole hosted like the billionth album release after party for "Just Like You" in New York City earlier this week:
A mic and some hot music and Keyshia's there. As I keep saying if you still haven't picked up her hot CD, go get it!
And here is her 106 performance featuring Missy and Lil Kim:
She sang her smash hit Let It Go. Thanks Rap-Up Playa.
A host of celebs came out to celebrate with Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton at her private surprise birthday bash at Les Deux September 25, 2007 in Hollywood, California:
Everybody had fun. Mel turned 23. The birthday girl had a lotta laughs as she chilled out with singers Adrienne Bailon, Omarion, her bandmate Jessica amongst others. Is it me or is her bandmate the spitting image of The Joker? She can pass for the villain's daughter.
Spice Girl Mel B was spotted leaving restaurant "Little Door" - Sept. 25:
I see Mariah and Mel stay popularizing that look. Not a very flattering look. Mel loves her some spandex pants. Don't see the fascination at all. Stay tuned for more.
