Many acts passed with flying colors, while others lagged way behind.

Now everyone wasn’t fashion forward in our eyes when it came to the Grammys. Here are our picks for worst dressed…

1. Joy Villa

57th GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Girl!…*Blank Stare Emoji*

2. Zendaya

grammys-2015-zendaya

This girl is breathtakingly beautiful, but this dress looks like a frock it’s doing nothing for her natural silhouette, the cut makes her look much older and the lipstick choice is not the best. I believe with the right stylist she can really make a solid name for herself in Hollywood! Hey Zandaya girl!! Let us help you, you will absolutely LOVE your new looks!

3.Charli XCX

grammys-2015-charli-xcx

We really see where Charli was trying to take this look, we get it…it’s the Grammys….it’s the only time to show off creativity through fashion and not be bashed, but this look was not it. The satin tuxedo with the hot pink bow tie would have really been nice without her choice of shoe and the fur. I personally would have styled her with a brighter colored fur , or got rid of the fur all together and paired this look with a rocker style clutch covered in gems. The pink satin peep toe heels would have been replaced immediately with something neutral or even white.

Honorable Mention: Rihanna

grammys-2015-rihanna

When we see Rihanna we think of as little clothing as possible, that’s why when she showed up on the carpet this year in this dress everyone was a bit shocked because it was so much fabric. I will say I am down with the #RihNavy, but I am not feeling this dress, what I do feel is the way Rihanna carried herself in it. The dress was very playful and risky just like her personality! I’m not giving her Best or Worst dressed, I feel she walks in her own lane when it comes down to fashion.

“Hit The Floor” Star Stephanie Moseley and “TMT” Member Dead In Apparent Murder Suicide

What a tragedy all around…sending love and prayers to all involved

Fans of VH1’s Hit The Floor are mourning the tragic loss of one of the show’s actresses, Stephanie Moseley aka Hasel Star.

Stephanie_Moseley_Arelly_Hit_the_Floor

According to TMZ, the dancer, who’s worked with Beyoncé, Ne-Yo, Chris Brown and more, was found dead inside an apartment in a high-end residential complex near The Grove in Los Angeles early Monday morning.

Police say they were called in to the Palazzo East around 7:30am by a person who claimed they heard a woman screaming and as many as 10 gunshots. When officers arrived to the apartment, they heard two more gunshots as they were making their way to a closed bedroom. Inside, they found Stephanie and her husband rapper Earl Hayes, dead. Police believe Hayes shot and killed Stephanie before turning the gun on himself.

Stephanie-Moseley-Earl-Hayes-and-Floyd-Mayweather

Hayes was a very close friend of Floyd Mayweather’s and was once signed to his record label. Floyd Mayweather unfortunately witnessed the gruesome murder-suicide as Hayes Face timed the boxer during his rage. It is alleged that Hayes accused Mosely of infidelity with a famous singer and went into a jealous rage selfishly ending both of their lives.

According to TMZ’s  sources, Earl Hayes had said he was going to kill his wife and the boxing champ was pleading with him to get a grip. Floyd will not say how much he saw, but he acknowledges he was a witness and heard everything. He is currently in shock and is having extreme difficulty dealing with the fact that he witnessed a horrifying murder/suicide.

Stephanie-Moseley

Stephanie Mosely was a promising actress, dancer, singer and all around entertainer who was adored by many. A number of celebrities took to their twitter and instagram accounts to share their condolences including “Hit The Floor” cast mates Taylour Paige, Kimberly Elise, Lance Gross, Chris Brown, Trey Songz, 50 Cent, Rihanna and many more.  Her light of a spirit touched so many and we hope that she will be remembered by her beautiful light and vibrant life than her unfortunate and untimely death.

Now this tragedy has brought a wider awareness to depression, domestic violence and gun control. Unfortunately in the black community depression and suicide is not addressed properly in many cases.

a 2008 study revealed:

Among Blacks who were already mental health consumers, over a third felt that mild depression or anxiety would be considered “crazy” in their social circles. Talking about problems with an outsider (i.e., therapist) may be viewed as airing one’s “dirty laundry,” and even more telling is the fact that over a quarter of those consumers felt that discussions about mental illness would not be appropriate even among family.

It’s time to help those in need of mental counseling and not shame them. Many people go through depression without realizing they are suffering from the illness. Depression can lead to suicide and other tragic events. This murder-suicide is a form of domestic violence and with the right tools it is possible to seperate from an abusive partner unharmed.

Solange Knowles Marries Alan Ferguson In New Orleans!

Congratulations to the Ferguson’s!

Image by Rog Walker

Solange wed 51-year-old music-video director Alan Ferguson in New Orleans over the weekend. The wedding seemed to be a culmination of a weekend celebration that included  a “movie night” Friday — a screening of Mahogany — the movie Solange and Ferfuson saw on their first date. The couples’ wedding celebrations did not only stop at a ceremony but a full parade in the city’s center.

The beautiful bride went with a non traditional ceremony as she wore a caped Kenzo gown down the aisle and ordered a dress code of all white to her guests. This decision made for great aesthetics as her first wedding photos nearly #broketheinternet. Solange also ditched the traditional limo or horse and carriage to arrive at her wedding. She opted for a white-painted bicycle decorated with cream roses and wearing an ivory-toned look by Stephane Rolland. She walked down the aisle to one of the couple’s favorite songs, a symphonic instrumental of Donny Hathaway’s, “I Love the Lord, He Heard My Cry.” With performances by musician friends Kelela, Questlove, and Kindness—and an adorable dance-off between Knowles and her ten-year-old son Daniel Julez to “No Flex Zone,”

Once the ceremony was over the wedding party and guests headed to the beautiful parade held in honor of the couple’s nuptials. Jay Z and Beyonce were captured on video dancing in the street looking like royalty!

Your Guide To Getting The Ring!

Don’t Be a Fling Get the Ring!

wedding-pic (2)

There are many women who are single or in a “relationship” wondering why they havent been proposed to yet. There are the women who are serial trophies ( women who men only like showing off), doormats (women who continually allow themselves to be abused), and just plain crazy women. Just joking, just joking in the mix of single unmarried women there are regular good girls who just may be doing a few things wrong while on the path to meeting their soul mate. I know there are so  many of us hurting your heads over the question “does he not see ALL this, what do i need to do?”

Well we’ve got some help from John T. Malloy with his book “Why men marry some women and not others”.

download (10)

This book is based on over 3,000 interviews conducted by Molloy and his researchers. They interviewed couples coming out of marriage license bureaus, and then a control group. The results reflect the statistical tendencies of marriage. Many of the lessons are common sense, but what sets this book apart is its specificity and the statistical backup for its assertions.

Editor’s note: One interesting fact is that this book got positive but mixed reviews on Amazon. It seems that the statistical truths that women who are A) over 35, and B) overweight are much less likely to marry were not well-received by those women who fell into those categories.

The Six Basic Guidelines For Women To Get Married

  1. Insist on it.
  2. If you find yourself in a dead-end relationship, move on.
  3. Love yourself first.
  4. Commit yourself to the idea of getting married
  5. Keep in shape, watch your weight, and take care of your appearance
  6. Time is running out—use time wisely in your search for the marrying man

To maximize your chances of marrying, only date the marrying kind:

  • Most men will not consider marriage before they reach the age of commitment
    • For 80% of high school graduates, 23
    • For 80% of college graduates, 26
    • For college men, the high-commitment period is 28-33
    • For men who go to graduate school, 30-36
    • After the age of 37-38, the chances that he’ll commit drops dramatically. After 43, it drops even more
    • A 40+ man who has been married before is more likely to remarry than an equivalent bachelor is to marry
  • Most men will not contemplate marriage until they have been working and living as independent adults for several years (hence the high-commitment periods)
  • Men become likely to marry after they become uncomfortable with the singles scene
    • E.g. They realize that they’ve become the sleazy old guys who hang out at the bars and hit on younger girls
  • Men do have a biological clock, based on their desire to be an active father (especially to their sons)
  • Misc. negative traits and warning signs
    • Men who see marriage as a financial arrangement in which women have the most to gain
    • Men whose parents divorced when they were young
    • Men who live with their parents
  •  Other key facts
    • Men often marry women whose religion, politics, values, and socioeconomic status match theirs
    • Men whose friends and siblings are married are more likely to marry
      • 60% of the newly married men reported that they had a friend who had married within the last year.
      • Those men who didn’t have any married male friends were 2-3 times as likely to say that they weren’t ready to marry.
      • The majority of men who had seen their friends get married said that if they met the right woman, they’d think seriously about getting married.
  • Avoid stringers, men who string along women but never commit. To filter them out, insist that he commit after six months. Then stick to it, no matter what excuses he gives.
  • Consider unpolished jewels, men who are just as nice, intelligent, hard-working, and successful, but lack looks, height, or social skills.

a. 88% of men over 50 who were marrying for the first time were marrying divorced women. The women told the researchers that they had already tried the tall, suave, type, and he didn’t make a very good husband.

First impressions are important

  • 1. Men are attracted by the physical, but marry character
    • a. Newly engaged men said that what attracted them to their fiancées was how classy, positive, energetic, enthusiastic, and upbeat their future wives were.
      • i. While 68% gave a physical description of their fiancée, only 20% said that what attracted them was how gorgeous and sexy their fiancée was. Over 60% described their personalities, even if the women in question were very beautiful.
    • b. Therefore, be positive!
  • 2. All wives are trophy wives—men marry women whom they admire and like to show off (but not for their physical appearance)
  • 3. Dressing appropriately sends the message, “I am wife material.” Men marry women they perceive as “situational virgins” who move easily in their world.
    • a. Editor’s note: In other words, don’t dress like a ho. Men see a sexy outfit as an invitation to have sex.
    • b. Most men decide within 10 minutes of meeting a woman if she’s appropriate for marriage, or just for a casual affair.
    • c. Over 80% of men said or bragged that their fiancée was the kind of woman they were proud to introduce to friends and family
    • d. Over 70% of men said that they knew that their future bride was a “nice girl” the minute they met
    • e. Only 7 out of 2,000 men interviewed said that their fiancée was dressed in a very sexy outfit when they met.
  • 4. If you want to marry a man who is more attractive than you, go for a very good-looking man because he will actually place less emphasis on looks. Women see their own looks as a gift of nature equal to or superior to brains and talent. In contrast, 67% of very good-looking men think of their looks as a minor asset, and say they would rather be smart, rich, or talented. Do the following:
    • a. Approach him. Very attractive men don’t make passes at women because they don’t have to.
    • b. Let him put you on a pedestal. Don’t treat him any differently than you would another man, just because he’s good-looking.
    • c. Let him see your talents and accomplishments. Very good-looking men often marry women who have qualities they lack—education, professional accomplishment, social standing, and ambition.
    • d. Make demands on him. Advise him to go back to school or get a better job.
  • 5. Making a good impression on his family is almost as important as making a good impression on him.
    • a. 5% said that it was their family that had convinced them that the woman was something special

b. 30% said that their family’s positive opinion had influenced them

What kind of women get married?

  • 1. Women with a large number of female friends are more likely to marry than women with a large number of male friends
    • a. Men don’t go out of their way to introduce their female friends to other men
  • 2. If you reach 30 and want to get married, you have to make finding a husband a primary goal. Once your friends start getting married, they are less likely to have an active social life with you. Don’t be the last one off the bus!
  • 3. Women who get married, even those with high-powered careers, make getting married a priority that they work at.
  • 4. The larger the number of single men and women you work with, the better your chances of marrying
  • a. If you work in an industry with few eligible men (e.g. the fashion industry, where most male colleagues are gay), or have other disadvantages, you’ll have to work harder outside of work to overcome them. It’s unfair, but suck it up.
  • 5. Women with unrealistic expectations often remain single
    • a. Much of the time, these expectations are imposed by others, who think that the men she brings home aren’t “good enough for her.”
    • b. Give men a second chance—20% of brides to be said that they didn’t like their husband when they first met him.
  • 6. Self-confident men are attracted to accomplished, self-assured, and talented women
  • 7. Women who waste their time with stringers or men who don’t care for them hurt their chances of marrying
    • a. Women who marry refer to the men who broke up with them as losers. Women who don’t marry often make men who don’t reciprocate their feelings the center of their universe and still speak well of them.
  • b. Don’t date married or gay men.
  • 8. Women who live with their parents are less likely to marry
  • 9. Being slender attracts more men, therefore increasing your chances to marry
  • 10. Women who put effort into looking their best are more likely to marry than those who don’t
  • 11. However, men find women who are active and don’t spend all of their time primping more attractive
  • 12. Women who make an effort to seek out the company of single men are more likely to marry
    • a. Women who marry date more frequently than those who don’t, even it’s Mr. Wrong.
    • b. Women who marry are three times as likely to participate in masculine activities in which they had no real interest.
    • c. Women who marry are twice as likely to have made lifestyle sacrifices (changing jobs or moving) to meet eligible men.
  • 13. Women who have active social lives are more likely to marry
  • a. Go out on Friday and Saturday, when other single people go out

The stages in a relationship

  • 1: Living up to expectations
    • Men believe that they can size up a woman in 5 minutes. They’re usually wrong. If a man doesn’t call, it’s because he realizes that he made a mistake.
  • 2: Getting to know you. The following types of women are more like to get asked out on additional dates
    • a. Women who date more extensively
    • b. Women who have male friends or brothers (and thus have a better understanding of men)
    • c. Women who worry less about impressing their dates and more about having fun
    • d. Women who don’t have sex on the first date
    • e. Women who object when they don’t approve of the man’s plans
    • f. Women who are friendly and positive
    • g. Women who are a good audience and show interest and/or a concern for his welfare
    • Sidebar: Why men don’t call
      • As men see it, they don’t need a reason not to call. They do need a reason to call.
      • The woman gets too serious too soon
      • The woman is not as positive as they had thought.
        • 90% of men find catty remarks a turnoff
  • 3: Needs and lifestyles
    • This stage is about separating attraction from compatibility.
    • If your lifestyles aren’t compatible, end the relationship as quickly and painlessly as possible
  • 4: Steady dating (range: 3 weeks to 3 months)
    • Men don’t typically think of themselves as dating until after 4-6 dates
    • Women typically think of themselves as dating after 2-3 dates, hence the problem
    • The primary reason men drop women during the first month or two is that the women come on too strong, too soon.
      • 50% of men have broken up with a woman because she got serious prematurely
      • Never speak of marriage, children, or your future together for the first 6 dates.
  • 5: Romancing the woman
    • Men are always trying to please the women they like. Just relax and enjoy your stay on the pedestal (because it’s likely to be brief).
  • 6: Getting comfortable (3 months+). This is the stage where the couple stop feeling they have to be on their best behavior and start being themselves.
    • The fact that your man doesn’t bring you roses, but instead plops on your couch to watch TV and takes you for granted is actually a natural stage and the hallmark of almost all serious relationships—not a deal-killer.
    • But, don’t be a doormat. If you don’t complain, or, even worse, try to do everything for him, it will make him think you are just there for his convenience.
      • Women who withhold doing household chores usually get more respect from men
      • The women who insist on being treated well are 2x as likely to end up marrying their man. No one marries a servant.
    • Insist on being monogamous
  • 7: Committed couplehood (range: 6 months to 1 year; 73% said that within 9 months, their partner had become the center of their lives).
    • Successful couples:
      • Are monogamous
      • Put their partners interests above their friends and family
        • If his family member makes a negative comment about you, he should defend you. 79% of marrying men said that they came to their financees’ defense.
      • Hang out together without any particular plans. When just being together, you are a successful couple.
  • 8: Premarital couplehood.
    • Committed couples are:
      • Openly affectionate, and make sacrifices for each other
      • Become confidants. More than 90% of couples who get married are.
    • But remember that men are sensitive to criticisms of their family, and men don’t share their feelings easily
  • 9: The proposal stage
    • Most men propose after going out with a woman for 18 months.
    • If at the end of 22 months, a man has not proposed, the chances that he will start to diminish.
    • For 3.5 years, the chances diminish gradually. After that, it plunges. After 7 years, your chances are virtually zero.
  • 83a26532d992e0b871281df9148a3da2

    • e. The best response is, “Maybe it’s time for you to think about it.”
    • f. Statistically, this is actually one of the most encouraging answers a woman can receive; many of these men proposed within 4 months.
  • 6. Men don’t get subtle hints—a woman has to discuss marriage directly and, to make sure he gets the point, ask follow-up questions.
  • 7. When a man says he isn’t ready, it usually doesn’t mean he will never marry.
    • Often, it’s because they don’t have enough money.
  • 8. Men rarely respond positively when challenged.
    • a. Over 50% of men say that when presented with a choice, “Marry me or get lost,” they chose to get lost.
    • b. Over 50% of men say that when a woman walks out, they let her go.

      • ii. “The reason I’m so hurt is that I love you.”
