President Obama ‘sings’ Rihanna’s Work :) Too much fun

Why does the Internet stay winning? It’s because of clips like this. President Barack Obama is one of the most engaging and informative live speakers out there, but can he sing? There are a lot of montage clips of him on the web, but this one is probably my favourite. It sees POTUS ‘taking on’ Rihanna’s Work. Watch it – you’ll love it:

Man I’m going to miss this President!

Rihanna leaves nothing to the imagination at CFDA Awards

10256454_10154260562245235_3285952317559231219_n

Rihanna might’ve been banned from Instagram for baring too much flesh, but that hasn’t and wont stop the star from pushing the boundaries whenever or wherever she can. Case in point at last night’s CFDA Fashion Awards. She was wearing a custom-made Adam Selman fishnet dress with over 216,000 Swarovski crystals. The Umbrella hitmaker was honored with the Fashion Icon Award at the ceremony, which saw some of the biggest names in the game attending.

While the others looked aait, it was Rihanna who stole the show… Obviously! It’s getting a lot of mixed reactions though. Some love it, some question the need for her to reveal so much of herself. I think she looks stunning, but I have to wonder how comfortable she actually feels. I mean come on, surely you’d feel somewhat awkward? What do you think?

Not only did they win big at this year’s SAMAs, they’re also multiple nominees for this year’s MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs), they’re being booked for gigs all over the continent and now they’ve cracked a nomination for this year’s BET Awards!! Big up to them. They were nominated alongside Davido (Nigeria), Sarkodie (Ghana), Tiwa Savage (Nigeria), Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania) and Toofan (Togo) in the Best International Act category.

Drake releases Days in the East

Is Drake’s latest song dedicated to his rumoured to be lover, Rihanna? I like them as a couple. They make sweet music together, so maybe they’ll be a sweet couple too. This is Drake’s new track called ‘Days in the East’. It is produced by PartyNextDoor.

Watch: Shakira ft Rihanna – Can’t Remember To Forget You

It is finally here… Shakira and Rihanna’s Can’t Remember To Forget You video has arrived. It’s hot and now I love the song even more. Your thoughts?

By the way, the song is taken of Shakira’s forthcoming, self titled  album on the 25th of March.

Grammys 2014 – red carpet

Music’s biggest night is upon us. This year’s Grammy awards go down from the Staples Center in Los Angeles and the stars are doing their thang on the red carpet. Some of my favourite’s tonight so far include Rita Ora, Paris Hilton (yes, true story), P!nk and the hot mamma to be, Ciara. If you haven’t had enough of Jared Leto this awards season, he’s put aside the acting for the night in favour of his musical talent. He, together with the rest of the 30 Seconds To Mars crew, rocked the red carpet. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis looked stylish tonight. At the Oscars, Golden Globes you’ll see the gents keeping it pretty generic in their black suits and bow ties, but the Grammys are different and thankfully so. The bow ties are there, only this time they’re matched with some colour. That’s what makes this one of the better red carpets to watch.

How do we feel about Madonna’s outfit tonight? I saw a tweet saying is that Madonna’s new boyfriend? I died a little right there… It’s her son by the way.

Aaah Katy and her musical notes and Ciara and her baby bump… The Grammys.

Biggest WTF moment belongs to Slipknot… I have no words:

Taylor Swift is elegant and wise beyond her years. She’s looking great in her “chainmail” Gucci gown.

[Audio] Shakira – Can’t Remember To Forget You ft Rihanna

Here it is ladies and gents… It’s the highly anticipated single by Shakira and Rihanna called Can’t Remember To Forget You:

I’m on a second listen and it’s definitely catchy. It is one of those pop singles that will definitely grow on one. Will it breaks records? Well let’s wait and see what the video is like before we place our bets 😉

Sidebar, I hope Rihanna goes back to her Barbados roots for her new album. I feel like something different and I dig material like Man Down, Pon de Replay etc. Patiently waiting.

Eminem releases The Monster

Watch: Rihanna – What Now official video

One of my favourite tracks off Rihanna‘s Unapologetic album is this one. It’s called What Now and the video is officially here. I got to see her perform this one live in concert last month, when she was here as part of her Diamonds World Tour. The way the crowd sang it with and then back to her was just too awesome. Rihanna is too gorgeous for words, love the video.
