As her fans patiently await the arrival of her serially delayed Bravehart album, ASHANTI continues to simply make red carpet appearances at all of the celebrity packed events. Last week Ashanti showed up to the Grammy festivities, and this weekend she walked the carpet at several Pre Super bowl events.
Ashanti looked great, in my opinion, as she attended parties hosted by ESPN, as well as DirecTV. I’m not one to ever defend Ashanti’s vocals, performances or chart success. However, I have always been one of the first amongst my friends and associates to state the fact that Ashanti is ALWAYS done.
Whenever you see Ashanti at an event, awards show, premiere or red carpet affair, she is put together flawlessly. Her hair, makeup, shoes, bags and ensembles always flatter her toned body. Ashanti just seems to take great pride in how she presents herself, publicly. That’s more than we can say for many urban and pop, female artists.
Im just hoping that Ashanti attaches herself to a concrete record company and/or reputable management team. Though she claims to be releasing a music video to accompany her ‘I Got It’ single, Im not so sure that visual will see the light of day. It must be difficult for her at this point in time as she is controlling every aspect of her music career.
Last night in New York City, DRAKE joined the slew of other celebrities who are in town for the Super Bowl XLVIII festivities. Drake was invited to headline the Revolt/Time Warner Cable Super Bowl Party. The exclusive event was held in the cities famed Meat Packing District.
Drake had the crowd amped as he performed his latest cuts, ‘Tropies‘, as well as, ‘We Made It‘. The video footage isn’t spectacular, but the professional visuals obviously haven’t been released as of yet. I will try to add anything of high quality that turns up in the news feeds.
As celebrities are piled in New York City this weekend to partake in Super Bowl festivities, the weekend could not be sealed without a surprise appearance from Mr. and Mrs. Carter. Last night, BEYONCE and JAY Z took center stage at the DirecTV Super Saturday Night showcase. The event was held at NYC’s Pier 40.
I must say that I absolutely LOVE Beyonce’s look from last night. She was adorned in Loraine Schwartz jewelry, a chic, Tom Ford dress and the classic go to for women nowadays, Louboutin shoes.
The power couple performed their latest smash hit single, Drunk In Love. The performance appears to be a lot more energetic and lively than last weekend’s Grammy opener. It may be the fact that the crowd is so excited and thrilled to see Beyonce grace the stage. Whatever the reason, it looks as if patrons were treated to the perfect Super Bowl Weekend surprise.
As celebrities have piled into New York City to celebrate Super Bowl XLVIII, DirecTV decided to host their very own festivities at Pier 40.
This year, DirecTV organized a celebrity Beach Bowl where stars were divided into teams to compete against one another.
Handsome actor, Michael B. Jordan and R&B crooner, John Legend, were both on board to toss the ball around on the beach. John Legend was joined by his wife, Chrissy Teigen. The two were snapped being silly alongside one another, as they played with super enlarged photos of their heads. Chrissy and John have been married since September, 2013 and spent their honeymoon in Italy.
Today, the couple were paired alongside Michael and others for a little friendly, football fun.
Last night, 39 year old rapper NELLY made an appearance at the 2014 Playboy Super Bowl Party. The event was held at the Bud Light Hotel Lounge in New York City.
Nelly not only walked the red carpet and posed with quite a few of the Playboy bunnies, but he also took center stage. The veteran rap star is in New York City to partake in all of the festivities that surround tomorrow’s big, Super Bowl game.
The few things that I can honestly say about Nelly is first, he never seems to age. The man is 39 years old and still looks as chiseled and youthful as he did when he first hit the music scene with Country Grammar in 2014. Secondly, if you think about it, Nelly is one of the few male, rap artists who has never had his name or brand ruined by a huge, public scandal. You’ve never seen Nelly’s name or image plastered across negative, damaging headlines. Additionally, he has made a few lucrative business decisions. Though Nelly isn’t the chart-topper he once was, the man has sold millions upon millions of single records. Blending his sound with country music truly solidified his brand within the industry.
It looks as if Nelly is still celebrating life and enjoying the moments..
Those of you following me via Twitter and Facebook are well aware that MICHAEL B. JORDAN has been on my radar as of lately. For the past few weeks, Ive been sharing photos of him on all of my social media networks. The young man is extremely handsome, without being intimidatingly attractive. You know?…
In the photos I posted of him last weekend via Twitpic.com, I assumed that he was romantically linked to the woman he was walking with on Miami Beach. However, in the interview he granted to BlackTree TV a few days ago at the Hollywood premiere of ‘That Awkward Moment’, Michael declares that he has been SINGLE for a little over one month now.
he seems to be so humble and approachable…
As all of the celebrities are partying in East Rutherford, New Jersey for tomorrow’s match up between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, Michael B. Jordan attended the GQ/SHAPE/MEN’S FITNESS Super Bowl Bash. Posing playfully for the cameras, Michael was joined by the likes of John Legend, Mary J. Blige, Chanel Iman, Bridget Kelly and a slew of other industry folks.
