Kerry Washington wore this gorgeous Gucci dress to Mary J. Blige's 2nd Annual Honors Concert. The concert is held annually to help raise money for Blige's charity FFAWN which provides young women financial assistance so that they can attend college. I absolutely love this look on Kerry! What do you guys think?

I have to admit, back in '99 and the early 2000s I was one Jennifer Lopez's biggest fans. Old habits die hard so it's still hard for me to be too critical of J.Lo even though I haven't really been into her music for the past 5+ years. But I have to admit I absolutely hated the gold Zuhair Murad jumpsuit that she recently wore to a release party for her upcoming album Love?. Apparently a lot of people loved the look so I have to ask, was it a hit or a miss?

Amber Riley will be featured on the May 2011 cover of Marie Claire. I am not a huge fan of Glee but I like Amber Riley. She looks absolutely gorge on both covers! I hope we see Amber Riley in more roles in the future where she does more than play the background to her costars.

Anyone who reads my blog knows how much I love Kerry Washington's style! Here she is at a pre-oscars event wearing a floral dress from designer Dolce & Gabbana. I'm not going to even ask if it is hot or not because it is, without question, HOT.

I saw this story today on Sandra Rose and it really upset me! A young 20 year old British woman died on Tuesday after going to Philadelphia to get butt injections. Her friends say she thought she needed the injections so that she could become a famous video model. I am all about women and self esteem and things like this are so preventable. Ladies learn to love yourselves. Anything that requires that you become something you are not to be successful is not worth it. People who truly love you don't care what package you come in. I'm so tired of these thirsty dudes going on and on about a female's hip to waist ratio and demanding that their girls look like dimes when they are a hot mess!
You can read the rest of her story here. R.I.P. Claudia...

Ne-Yo will be guest starring on next Friday's episode of CSI New York on CBS and I really don't know why. I guess anyone can be an actor these days. Hopefully his acting has really improved from what it was in his Beautiful Monster video. Here is the full version of the video in case you've never seen it.

Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner recently revealed that the start of the 5th season of the award winning series is up in the air due to, of course, money issues. Apparently Lionsgate and AMC are still arguing about the financial terms of new contracts and everything is on hold until a deal is reached. It's crazy how you can have one of the most successful shows on TV in recent years and try to screw it up over money disputes. Newsflash AMC and Lionsgate, if there's no show, then there will be no money, period. It's already bad enough that we have to wait a whole year to see each season. Get it together AMC!
On a side note, I know a lot of ladies love Jon Hamm but am I the only one that thinks Mr. John Slattery is hot? Ok granted he's a little on the old side (and his blackface episode was insulting) but I still think he's really attractive. Check him out in his new commercial.

A week or so ago I was on theybf.com and while I was reading through the posts, I spotted a pic of Tameka Raymond as the fab photo of the day. I am not a Tameka fan (because really I have no idea what she does) but I have to admit she is looking really good these days. You can check out more pics here.

A little while ago I did a post about R&B singer Amerie after she went blonde. Now Angela Simmons (daughter of Rev Run of Run DMC) has also lightened her locks and I'm not quite sure what I think about it. A lot of celebs have tried to rock blonde hair (remember when Kim K. did it after she broke up with Reggie Bush?). Some wear it well, others don't. I used to want to dye my hair (not blonde though) but I chickened out. I admire girls who have the guts to at least try something different even if it doesn't work out. Have any of you ever made a drastic change to your hair color? If so I would love to hear about it.

16 year old Phylicia Barnes has been missing since December 28. I did not read anything about it until yesterday. It is terribly sad that the media for whatever reason has chosen not to cover this story. To all of you with blogs (especially ones that are heavily trafficked) I encourage you to spread the word about this young lady and post her picture. I am praying that this young lady be returned to her family safe and sound.

Recently actress Gwyneth Paltrow admitted that after her role in Country Strong, she believes that music is "definitely in her future". Granted I haven't seen Country Strong (and I have no desire to spend a single cent trying to) but Gwyneth a singer?
There must be something in the water in Hollywood because Gwyneth is not the only star thinking of venturing into music. Meagan Good is apparently in a girl group and Kim Kardashian is, well, being Kim. This got me to thinking about some celebrities who have tried to venture into music and failed, miserably. Here are some of the worst actors/models/socialites turned singers that I could think of (in no particular order).
Who would you add to the list?
5. Lindsay Lohan
I'm rooting for Lindsay...I really am and I hope that she is able to make a great comeback. But I really hope she left the singing alone.
4. Paris Hilton
No explanation needed...
3. Jada Pinkett Smith
Yeah, no comment.
2. Hayden Panettiere
1. Tyra Banks
Tyra can do many things. This is not one of them.
