It’s been a week since the 57th Annual Grammys and this is just to recap the fashion highlights and music winners, but mostly we want to talk about Rihanna stealing the show that night. The Grammys is a night of music and fashion, a time to show off your new arm candy or the newest designer collection. Rihanna wore two distinctively different looks on the night but my favourite had to be the Giambattista Valli Haute Couture, she looked like a princess from a fairy tale in the layered pink number. To match the outfit she wore diamond clustered earrings and made the look 100x better with a simple pull back hair-do.
After she walked the red carpet the internet was flooded with comments and response on her Giambattista dress, the comments were fairly mixed some made fun of her dress saying it looked like a “loofah” some said she looked like an umbrella.
Later that evening, the “fashion killa” surprised everyone as she appeared in a black Maison Margiela suit when she took the stage with Sir Paul McCartney and Kanye West for her “FourFiveSeconds” performance. RiRi wore a shimmering diamond neckpiece to match the outfit and was not wearing earrings. She wore minimal make up and light lipstick which gave her a sophisticated look. Kanye, Sir McCartney and RiRi set the stage on fire with their mesmerising performance. Rihanna and Kanye faced each other towards the end of the song which ended with a glimpse Jay Z and Kim Kardashian clapping along.
Rihanna has always been a fashion icon for me and seeing her Grammy outfit I was not surprised I only expect the best from RiRi.
Bobbi Kristina, daughter of late legendary star Whitney Houston and the only child for ex husband Bobby Brown, has been in hospital since she was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her suburban Atlanta home on January 31st. This past week marked the three year anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death, unfortunately this time of year is not an easy period for Bobbi Kristina and the Houston family, with the added stress of the situation going on with Bobbi; I can only imagine the pain the families are going through.
Bobbi K spent her whole life in the spotlight generated by Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, for so long she has had the strain of fame following her. She appeared on red carpets and attended award shows alongside them. Bobbi aspired to be a singer and actress like her mother, but her career never took off. She ended up becoming a social media star tweeting more than 11,000 times and attracting 164,000 followers. She also spent a lot of her time claiming she was married to her partner Nick Gordon, the orphan young man she grew up with after Whitney brought him into the family. Bobbi Kristina simply hasn’t been able to handle the seat of her mother, although it’s been three years the wound is still fresh.
Suge Knight is to stay in jail for the next six weeks due to his bail hearing being postponed.
The ex rap music mogul is charged with murder and attempted murder following a disastrous hit-and-run incident outside a fast food restaurant. His lawyer claimed it was an accident as he said it happened as he tried to escape attack.
Prosecutors allegedly said the famous rapper intended to run over a friend and another man after an argument. Suge who founded Death Row Records, which featured Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur as its no 1 artist. Faces four charges under his real name Marion Hugh Knight and will face life in prison if convicted.
It’s also alleged that a truck Suge Knight was driving hit and killed his friend Terry Carter, 55, in the suburbs of Compton on January the 29th. Cle ‘Bone’ Sloan 51, was also injured.
The choice to keep Suge Knight in prison was made by a judge, after his lawyer asked for time to review the evidence before the bail hearing. The hearing was postponed to the 20th March. Deputy District Cynthia Barnes said it may include evidence of a very large stack of uncharged crimes. On Monday Suge replied “yes” when asked if he approves of the delay to the case. The delay came a week after the he was hospitalised due to ‘chest pains’. Knight will have to wait 6 weeks to find about his bail hearing.
