Redemption Song Sung For Haiti

Redemption song was originally sung by Bob Marley and was sung again later on by Lauryn Hill and his son Ziggy Marley. Rihanna chose the song to sing for the Hope for Haiti Benefit Concert. Here, she performs it on Oprah. We disliked the way she sang this but it is for a good cause and we give you another option just in case you felt the same.

Enjoy and Watch the concert tonight on Youtube.

That Was NOT Making-Out

The media’s attempt to scandalize our favourites has failed again.

They just don’t know when to stop, do they! It’s obvious it was a friendly kiss, NOT a Britney/Madonna moment.

Real dumb World Media, real dumb.

Jessica Simpson Finally Doing Something Kinda Great

We try not to talk about individuals who don’t illustrate what we envision as ‘positive role ideals’ for women’s self-esteem and self-image, issues that are very important to us. However, now and again there are those who surprise us, for example Jessica Simpson who in a surprising turn of events went off into the sunset and around the world to explore the definition of beauty as her weight gain became a point of interest for the media.

She left with friends Ken Paves and CaCee Cobb and met everyday women to understand views, traditions and practices of beauty in their countries. They travelled to Japan, Thailand, France, Brazil, Uganda, Morocco and India to examine these. Their journey will begin airing March 15 at 10pm in a VH1’s series called “The Price of Beauty.”

Jessica says, “Outward beauty is an easy thing to become obsessed with in our society, I haven’t always had an inner confidence. I haven’t always looked at my reflection and loved it, because there was always something I wanted to fix, because someone always looked better. This journey was about finding something that was beautiful inside of me and knowing that I own it. And it’s unique and rare.”

However, she did cite Paris as the most intimidating place to be as ”[she] had to walk a runway with all of these tall, skinny models.” The experience seems to have been quite scarring as she says “I almost puked, I was so nervous to walk out there and be judged, especially standing next to people who eat just salad.”

Interesting Jessica, most French women we know and we know A LOT love le food and cheese (for an odd but understandable reason). Models though…probably. Despite that little statement, we think this kinda inspiring even if it is coming from the person who said, ”is chicken salad tuna, tuna? or chicken?”

Meryl Streep And Sandra Bullock Making Out At The Critics Choice Awards 2010

Our favourite actresses gone to bat for the other side? What is going on?

Bradley Cooper seems to be enjoying himself thoroughly.It turns out the both of them TIED for the Best Actress Award and this was them kissing and making-up due to their apparent feud. There was never any feud, please.

Personally, we think the both of them can kiss til’ the Sun comes down. They can do NO wrong.

Lady Gaga Performs On Oprah After Fainting Incident At Concert

It is so inspiring that she works so hard. Before her concert at Purdue University, Lady Gaga collapsed and was confined to the walls of her dressing room as paramedics told her she had an irregular heartbeat originating from exhaustion and dehydration.

She wrote on her Twitter, “I’ve been crying for hours, I feel like I let my fans down 2nite. An hour before the show, I was feeling dizzy and having trouble breathing. I can’t apologize enough for how sorry I am. I could hear my fans cheering from my dressing room, I begged everyone to let me go on stage.”

It makes sense since her “stage has complicated mechanical elements, everyone was concerned [she’d] be in danger during the 2hr show, since [she] had passed out earlier.” She continued, ”I am so devastated. I have performed with the flu, a cold, strep throat: I would never cancel a show just based on discomfort. I hope you can forgive me. I love my little monsters more than anything, you are everything to me. I will make-up the performance on Jan 26.”

That’s so sweet and dedicated. She even got her chance to perform on Oprah the day after.

Friends Of Kathy

Sailor swearing on CNN to sailor swearing with refined company.

Whether it’s playing in Suze Orman‘s closet or showing off her Emmys with Anderson Cooper, Kathy maintains her hilarious. Surprised pictures of Larry didn’t show up on her twitter.

Wish WE had friends like that!

Matt LeBlanc Goes Blanc

Well, more a dusty grey with a tiny bit of poundage. Still good in our book.

How U doin?

Documentary of Loca Lohan In India

The documentary from BBC that documented Lindsay Lohan contending with the serious issue of child trafficking in India from a few months back hit the web yesterday. We know it’s a serious issue but given Lohan’s record of mental breakdowns and drunkenness, it’s hard to see if she’s actually serious about it.

Chanel Proclaims Throw Away Your Lipgloss For Lipstick!

Chanel is confident that 2010 is the year that lipstick will prevail over lipgloss as they launch their new lipstick line Rouge Coco de Chanel, which advertises a hydrating and long-lasting formulation, a quality lipgloss does not possess. The woman chosen as face of this campaign is none other than Vanessa Paradis, Johnny Depp’s love.

Chanel’s global cosmetic creative director Peter Philips complained “Women seem to have forgotten how to apply lipstick, we have a whole generation of lip-gloss girls. Now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with lip gloss — but there is something so feminine about the act of applying lipstick. I want to make lipstick as easy to apply as lip gloss, and for a long-lasting formula to feel comfortable on the lips.”

We are not foreign to the shiny allure of the convenient lipgloss but we would not say its effect of making moist, kissable lips is unfeminine. Peter Philips also forgot to mention one thing, not everyone can pull off lipstick. It has the ability to make one look sexy and confident but can also be garish and more lady of the night than lady.

We would say that lipgloss is slightly tinted and has about the same colour as other lipglosses. We also would say that it is quickest little piece of magic to apply though it lasts only about a half-hour and you can feel just as sexy wearing it.  Lipstick however, bursts with versatility in its variation of colours and finishes (matter, lustre, whatever) it comes in. Even though it is a bit more time-consuming to put on, it can be a sophisticated statement highlighting a woman’s ‘coming of age’ or a bright, bold statement expressing confidence and certainty.

We have worn lipgloss more often than lipstick but before Chanel’s announcement, we were thinking along the same lines in that it is nice to wear. We think that from the act of applying it to the way in which we are perceived while wearing it can lend someone a sophisticated air they may not have had before and the comfortable contentment that they have come to terms with who they are as women.

We can’t forget lipgloss our dear saviour but lipstick is lovely

Karen Elson Replaces Angelina Jolie in St. John Ad Campaign

Angelina Jolie is now the former spokesmodel for St John, the fashion knitwear giant, and has been replaced with firey red-head model Karen Elson, who took a ”nose dive off the stage at the British Fashion Awards, WWD reports.”

St. John CEO Glenn McMahon told WWD “We wanted to make a clean break from actresses and steer away from blondes and cleanse the palette.”

“We needed to show a modern point of view of St. John. We have evolved.”

Evolved or over it?

Interesting as McMahon himself told the source that Angelina was not all too content with dresses she was given to wear at red carpet events and ”overshadowed the brand.” Guess that means they weren’t too happy with each other in the end.

Elson does light up the page though, doesn’t she? Love the red
