2012 Grammy’s Red Carpet ACTION

Rihanna was among the fabulous celebs who was the red carper for tonight’s 2012 Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in LA.  See fab pics of Alica Keys, Kelly Rowland and others inside…..

Rih brought her daddy and little bro Rajad as her dates for the carpet.

The “Cheers” singer shook things up on the red carpet in this revealing Armani gown that she designed with Mr. Armani himself.  She said on the red carpet that he’s starting to trust her designs more.

Rihanna’s dress is simple but it simply screams sex!

She caught up with the “Super Bass” girls Sophia Grace & Rosie on the red carpet too.  Cute!

Nicki Minaj arrived with a Roman Catholic priest in a daring red Atelier Versace Couture “costume” with the Versace Medusa embellished on it. Bishop Long must have been busy.

I love Taraji P. Henson, but she should have chosen a more flattering dress because she can pull off a hot dress.  Not loving this one though.

Taraji also said she’s working on a music project but wants to make sure it’s authentic so it won’t turn off her fans.

Kelly Rowland and this big hair….which she has been rocking all weekend.  And I love it.  She wore an Alberta Ferreti gown with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.  One of my fave looks of the night.

She posed with DJ Khaled and Rick Ross on the red carpet.

Alicia Keys (who did a tribute to Etta James alongside Bonnie Rait) arrived with her husband Swizz Beatzwho rocked a bold purple bowtie and velvet sportcoat.  Totally underwhelmed by Alicia’s look.

Ice T was with wife CoCo who revealed SHE has a kissing scene coming up on his “Law And Order” show and it’s not with Ice!

John Legend arrive with his fiance Chrissy Teigen.

Common kept it regular with his look…..which is what we love about him.

Young Money is in the building!

LL Cool J, who is handling hosting duties, looked great.

LL Cool J arrived with his wife Simone.

Gospel duo Mary Mary rocked sisterly variations of black and silver.

Adele looked stunning (and fit) in this Armani gown. Another one of my simple yet elegant faves of the night.

Marsha Ambrosius tweeted about Whitney saying, It was a hard day for everyone yesterday. Celebrating and mourning “all at once…” On my way to The Grammys. Surreal. So real!

Wiz Khalifa walked the red carpet with Amber Rose who wore a Versace gown and Christian Louboutin shoes. I want somebody to sneak and check her tag because this looks a but cheap to be Versace. Maybe it’s not the dress itself….

Amber added that she wore black and yellow in honor of Wiz–who rocked Dolce & Gabbana and Louboutin shoes.  He jokingly said wearing those shoes makes him feel like it’s the first day of high school, and that Amber is the baddest chic at the high school.  He also said they will be engaged soon…..sigh.

Melanie Fiona also rocked black and yellow.  She also picked up the Best Traditional R&B Performance award in the pre-show.

Kirk Franklin looked mighty shiny on the red carpet.  He arrived with wife Tammy Collins.

And J. Cole tweeted this uber cute pic of himself with his mom on the red carpet.  I’m not even a huge fan of Mr. Cole but he is looking damn good on this carpet tonight.

Charlie Wilson…..sigh.  He’s a legend so if he want to rock an S-curl, Uncle Charlie can do that.

Corrine Bailey Rae went ALL THE WAY with the ruffles in this dress by Christian Siriano.  It’s actually a cute fun dress.  Kinda loving it.

Ledisi worked a sliver gown with sequins.

Bruno Mars wore Thom Browne.  And his usual bouffant ‘do.

AJ Calloway broke out the white leather loafers.

And Miss Ross walked the red carpet with son Evan.

Shaggy was also there…..we haven’t heard from him in a minute.

Rihanna, J.Cole, Christina Milian, Kelly Rowland & More Party It Up With ROC NATION At Pre-Grammy Brunch

The Roc family was out in full force for the annual Roc Nation pre-Grammy brunch yesterday at the Soho House in L.A.  Peep the pics of Rihanna, Christina Milian, J.Cole, and more inside…

Rihanna rocked a Bottega Veneta Resort 2012 strapless pantsuit ensemble made of a basket-print taupe/olive fabric.  And hit the carpet with her blonde hair for the first time.

And as the brunch took place before Whitney‘s death, celebs were in good spirits in the beautiful setting.  The party was DJ’d by Samantha Ronson.  And the beautiful folks noshed on some yummies–passed smoked salmon on brioche and Kobe short rib sliders, mini parfaits, a crepe station, and two bars — one omelet, one booze.  Nice.

Not loving the dark vampy makeup with such a light hair color.

And Rih showed of her Louboutin Pigalle pumps which she had autographed by Mr. Christian Louboutinhimself.


Christina Milian rocked this green strapless pointed bust dress for the occasion:

She knows how to show off her cute figure.


Kelly Rowland celebrated her b-day on the carpet and with her bestie Michelle Williams before heading out to more parties and a birthday dinner last night:

Kelly knows how to make even jeans look stunning.  She rocked a mustard bluse and kept it simple in skinny jeans and nude Louboutin pumps and cute Dolce & Gabbana leopard purse.

And Michelle rocked her little black dress with black & white striped pumps.

Ne-Yo and his artist Ravaughn stopped by, of course, well before his own annual pre-Grammy midnight brunch.

And Roc Nation kids Wale, Melanie Fiona, and J.Cole all partied it up together at Soho House as well before hitting up the numerous parties of the night.  Fab times.

Kelly Rowland’s “Keep It Between Us” SNEAK PEEK + Ne-Yo Makes BIG EXECUTIVE MOVE To Motown + Bridget Kelly COVERS “Ghubar” Magazine







According to The Ybf:

Kelly Rowland has released a sneak peek at her new “Keep It Between Us” video starring Lance Gross.Watch the snippet inside and find out about Ne-Yo’s new Motown gig and see RocNation star Bridget Kelly on the cover of “Ghubar” Magazine.

She tweeted,

Check out a preview of my new video “Keep It Between Us” featuring @LanceGross as my leading man!

Watch the preview here:


And check out their steamy lip-locking pics from the set HERE.


And Ne-Yo just made a big executive decision:

Big changes are on the way for Mr. Smith (shown above with Barry Weiss and Ethiopia Habtemariam). He just switched teams from Def Jam to Motown Records and was also named senior VP of A&R for Motown.

In his new role, Ne-Yo will serve as a producer and mentor to the label’s artists. Universal Republic and Island Def Jam Motown chairman/CEO Barry Weiss said,

“His track record of success at Def Jam will always be a benchmark…But this move to Motown will provide new and inspiring challenges for Ne-Yo as both an artist and a key member of the new senior management team that is taking form at the label in 2012.”

Ethiopia Habtemariam, Senior Vice President of Motown Records, said of Ne-Yo

“We are committed to discovering, developing and nurturing R&B/soul superstars here at Motown. In Ne-Yo we have both a global superstar and arguably one of the best songwriters in music. His presence on the executive team only strengthens our commitment to be the very best in R&B.”

Ne-Yo added,

“I’m honored that I’ve been given such a prestigious title and trusted with such responsibility; terrified because I know that playing this role in the fashion of one of my career role models, Mr. Smokey Robinson — these are big shoes to fill. But trust, I can handle it.”

Sure he made copping an executive title part of his new contract.  Can’t be mad at that.

And on magazine racks……

RocNation artist Bridget Kelly covers the 3rd anniversary issue of online French magazine “GHUBAR.”  In the photo, the “Thinking About Forever” singer is rocking fitted a Laquan Smith jacket and dress.

Sarah Diouf, Founder & Editor-in-chief, said of Bridget,

“Ghubar has grown in a way none of us were expecting. It’s incredible to believe that we’ve been able to do
so much through this little space on the internet. Today we are partnering with Roc Nation for this issue, it’s
something we would have never thought as possible when we first started.”

Pretty chick…

Kelly Rowland: ‘I’m A Shoe Whore’

Kelly has hella shoes!

According to Necole Bitchie:

Kelly Rowland is looking gorg in her latest photo shoot for ES Magazine. Fresh off of her stint on the UK’s X-Factor, she also sat down with Juicy magazine to talk about her ever growing shoe collection and personal style. Kelly also dished on what qualities she looks for in a man and why she doesn’t see herself ever having more than three kids.

On her ever growing shoe collection
I’m a shoe whore. I own almost over 200 pairs. I don’t know how many red bottoms I own. I’ve recently been able to wear [Christian Louboutins]. My foot didn’t quite fit in ‘em, but now I can. I don’t know if they altered them or what.

On her favorite piece of lingerie
My favorite piece [of lingerie] would be this LA PERLA set… I don’t know if it’s sexy anymore because it has those little buds on it from being in the dryer! [Laughs] It’s like,’ C’mon Kel, let it go.

On her favorite piece of clothing
I do love dresses, but I love to rock pants as well. There’s something very masculine about it that gives me a different energy that I love.

On why she doesn’t want more than three kids
I used to want five [babies]. Now I just want three. I took my god kids to UNIVERSAL STUDIOS and that just completely subtracted two! [Laughs]

On her ideal partner
He has to be supportive. Secure. Have goals and know exactly what he wants to be and knows his place as a man… I’d love for him to want kids and be close to his mother.
