Reports say they're back together

According to Us Weekly & Chris Brown & Rihanna are back together. Reports say: "The couple is staying together at a house owned by Sean “Diddy” Combs on Star Island near Miami, Florida. Brown has been seen smiling, riding a jet ski, and flexing his arm muscles. Rihanna arrived four days ago, according to a source."

I am deeply saddened by this. If this is true, & sadly it probably is, I am extremely disappointed in Rihanna. I was hoping she was a strong woman. Hopefully she doesn't learn of her mistakes like most domestic violence victims do, with death. He didn't just hit her. He viciously attacked her. And let's not fail to mention his infidelity.
Millions of money, millions of fans, and all the fame in the world can't buy you smarts huh.
I'm interested in what they're going to say. And where their careers will go from here.
God bless them.

I didn't post a picture because the site of them together disturbs me.

*read from concreteloop which has pics of her recently spotted in Mexico
UPDATE: pics of Chris & Rihanna's friends (no Rihanna) at Diddy's crib here

So as I talked to you guys on Thursday about America's Best Dance Crew's final 2 Beat Freaks & Quest Crew & how they ripped the stage! In case you missed it or wanna watch it again, 'cause you should, here are the videos of 2 of the sickest performances ever on MTV's ABDC.

I loved Quest Crew's parts to Ne-Yo's song & their crumping...and everything basically

I love homegirl from Beat Freaks' solo housing. I need to learn that shit. And their tuttin' was on point. These bitches are on fire.

Amanda Blank album coming...

I fucking love Amanda Blank like you would never know!
I picked up the March issue of Nylon Mag (which is super good) and inside Amanda Blank talks about her debut LP dropping this Spring. Hollaaaaz! I'm too hype but hold up, it gets better. She says Lykke Li will be on it! Hollaaaz! That's gonna be a great fucking track. Of course she also has Santogold & M.I.A. on there. I'm assuming Spank Rock as well. I listen to Bump non-stop 'cause Amanda's verse is like my favorite verse ever. If you Youtube her you'll get a gazillion videos of performances that make you wish you were there. I need to see her & Spank live asap, fa real. I couldn't decide on a video to show. But here's her at Rock The Bells '08.
Jump for more videos. There's an interview with her & Spank with Dj A-Cup, what kinda of amazing-ass name is A-Cup? I love it. A-Cups in the house!

Miranda Cosgrove

A-Li$t & I were just talking about how much we love the Nickelodeon show ICarly. It's a really great show. It's mad funny too. Well I been meaning to post this video from Miranda Cosgrove, who is the lead in ICarly. It's for her song About You Now. I like this track a lot

Celtics Sign Stephon Marbury

Congratulations to the Boston Celtics for signing free agent, Stephon Marbury. He is a cutie and I love the star tattoo on his head although I am tired of seeing stars. lol But now that he has joined KG and others, let's hope he can lead the Celtics to the finals for the 18th banner. That would be great for us Boston folks, fingers are crossed. Stephon will wear # 8, so look for him on the court.

Speaking of Rihanna, her tattoos are classy hot. She has 11 in total (that we know of) and they are very well thought out and respectable, and she works every single one! A beautiful woman rocking beautiful tattoos!

I never knew about this one, beautiful though
As you may of heard,

Throwback Friday : Vintage BOW WOW

I know a ton of you guys were bumping to this. HAHA

Lil Bow Wow F/ Jagged Edge- Thank You

VV Brown- LEAVE!

I came across this new artist, VV Brown, as I was reading Solange's blog. VV is from London and has been in this business for 10 years now, writing and producing. She describes her sound as, "do wop indie, whilst traveling on a rocket, all the way up into the deepest part of outer space." It's crazy because she kind of reminds me of Janelle Monae a little bit. This video is crazy cool. Love it!!!

Lindsay Lohan & Lily Allen went to get matching tattoos. A tattoo that Rihanna actually has already. I think it's a cute tat. Lindsay & Lily as friends is what's odd to me.

3 shootings 1 day

I have a lot of pride in being born & bred in East New York. But it's bad out here. Every time we think it's gotten better, it all turns around. All in one day there was 3 shootings. On Wednesday, a 22 year old girl was shot in the head & killed on Jerome & Linden. And a 20 year old, with her, was also shot in the head, but is in critical condition. The 22 year old had a restraining order against these girls who she had problems with in her own building and they jumped her the morning of her death, where her father made a police report and nothing was done. One of the problem girls' boyfriend shot the victims from a car.
On Sutter Avenue a girl shot her ex-boyfriend's new girlfriend (21yrs old) as she walked down the street. She died.
Also on Wednesday, in East NY, a mother and her boyfriend where fighting when he pulled out a gun and started shooting a closed door. He shot that woman's 11 year old daughter in the chest. She is in critical, but stable condition.

This is all so sad. It's scary because they happened right outside on the side walk. And I learned very young, that a bullet has no name on it. Why do people want to kill? I'll never understand.

America's Best Dance Crew 3

Who is watching America's Best Dance Crew right now? They have to do a dance where they have to incorporate diff styles in one dance, like tutting, waving, threading, housing, & crumping. Seriously Beat Freaks is the shit. They are an all female group breaking all the stereotypes of female dancers. Last week shorty spinned on her head for dumb long & put on her shades while spinning. I fucking love them!
Buuut Quest Crew just ripped the stage!!! They got a standing o! Their crumping, tutting, b-boy shit, & smooth moves were off the hook. I really want females to take it home, but I love Quest Crew too. Hok & Dominic are my heart since I watched them on So you Think You Can Dance. And this team is really something else. But so is Beat Freaks. Them girls are bad! They're innovative, fun, and extremely talented. Here's last week's episode...and if you just missed the past performances it comes on again at 11pm.

Betsey Johnson Fall 2009

Betsey Johnson gets better every season. Her household brand turned 30 last year. We wrote an amazing article on the rise of this iconic label, featuring some of her best collections. Check it out in Issue 2
Betsey Johnson has always been known for doing her own thing & switching it up on the fashion world. For her Fall 2009 collection she didn't do a runway show. Instead Betsey invited guests to "Betsey Crocker's Kitchen" in her showroom. The setting was super cute& very Betsey. The collection had 17 looks that included all our girly favorites. There are roses, sequence, lace, cheetah, prints, zippers, corset-like belts, bright tights, full skirts, & lots of fun.
Jump & enjoy

Peep the Louboutins!

let's talk shit


Soooo here's Kanye, Amber Rose, & Kid Cudi during fashion week. I like Amber's style. I like her name. These boots are fya, & so is that America coin purse, who they're by is on the tip of my tongue. I love her pink lipstick, those shades are hot!, but I'm not crazy about the lame' leggings paired with a denim jacket. This outfit does look mad 80s, but it's still simple & yet modern, so I dig it. Kanye in New Balances. I hate New Balances no matter how many pairs Alife drops. Some people, certain styled people can rock 'em & they work though. Some how I think Kanye looks ok in these because he's older & NB are an old school kinda kick. He looks like a regular dude, & I can respect that. Now Cudi. I am so over this skinny jeans & Jordans thing, but hey if you like it, then rock it. But what I'm not feeling is this wallet hanging from his jeans. I commented on it with the 106 post, and I've seen about 3 different pics of him, at 3 different places, rockin' this same LV wallet in the same spot on his jeans. He's obviously trying something, and I sense people will follow soon. Hey, to each it's own right? I still love Cudi's style, minus the chain, but I'm just sayin' though. I'm wide awake, it's 2am, so I'm just talkin' shit right now. Blogs allow this. lol

Y'all remember Dyme-A-Duzin from way back when? Well 21-7 featured him last year but we got more on him. Yup, here's some behind the scene footage from his "She's Sexy", video shoot that he posted on his youtube. How cool is he? He is doing big things and one especially is making this music video for his record. Too legit with his camera crew lol. I am so happy to see his progress. Much love to you Dymez, keep up the good work. Peep our other featured artist Crucial in the video too. holla
