The rapper showed up at the Vuitton show in Paris’ Jardins de Bagatelle on Friday (June 27) and told wwd.com ”I’m here for Louis” before revealing that he is working with the fashion giant on designed a men’s shoe line.
West, who was dressed entirely in his own clothing designs, also told the fashion site that he is working on a women’s wear collection which will debut this fall.
After all that free promo, it’s about time!
A mess. I’m assuming the terrible performance of their joint LP ‘Face Off’ may have been the cause for this break-up rift.
Pharrell Williams plans to use skin grown in a test tube to cover the tattoos on his arms. The N.E.R.D. frontman is bored of his existing designs and hopes to start afresh with the help of a pioneering graft technique. ‘It’s going to be pricey, but f*** it, it’s worth it,’ he says. ‘I got fire on my arms. I don’t need fire on my arms! I’m a grown man.
Good on him. I think some are going a lil’ overboard with the tatts and not really thinking what it’ll look like/or mean to them when they’re older.
Review in a bit…
In the meanwhile…
What do you think of the video?
“To be honest, it was more what she wanted. She was cool and we had a cool friendship. The media made it out to be something crazy. We kicked it. We hung out. Thing is, you can’t be cool with somebody you wanna be cool with [without the media thinking it’s a relationship]…I was grown enough to tell her, Look baby, that isn’t what it is right now.”
Jennifer Hudson – Stand Up
Some of you may remember ‘Stand Up’ from a post earlier this year, which saw Jennifer belting it out in her bathroom. Recorded back in 2006, ‘Stand Up’ was initially made available as a gift to fans via one of her fan-sites, however has since become so popular (among her fan-base) that it’s currently being considered for placement on her upcoming debut album. Indeed, the ‘big ballad’ showcases Jennifer’s powerful vocal ability to the fullest, while also engaging the listener lyrically. Great song.
Listen: Stand Up
Listen: 50/50 Love (ft. Trey Songz)
Your thoughts: Hit(s) or Miss(es)?
Hmm. I’m kinda wishing I didn’t listen to this, as, up until now, every track I’d heard from Solange’s album was a winner. However, the same can’t be said for this largely so-so track….which, for the most part, can be summed up as being kinda ‘blah’. Still, with a array solid cuts under her belt for the record, ‘Sol-Angel & The Hadley Street Dreams’ is definitely still one of the few albums I’m anticipating this year.
In other Solange news, ‘I Decided’ debuted at #44 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart this past week. The charting is her highest to date.
Hit or Miss?
