Posted in media, music, Uncategorized on August 29, 2010 by kayiancouture

MAN IT HAS BEEN A WHILE SINCE MY LAST POST ON WORDPRESS.. WELL YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENED WAS…I WAS ADDICTED TO THIS OTHER BLOG SITE BUT SINCE IT’S DOWN WHY NOT POST ON HERE…..SO HERE I AM.. SO TODAYS TOPIC IS ABOUT POP CULTURE WITH A LITTLE SCANDAL IN THE MIX….BUT FIRST LETS TALK ABOUT RECENT RELEASES IN MUSIC….

SO YESTERDAY MARKED THE RELEASE OF LOCAL ARTIST TONE C’S NEWEST MUSIC VIDEO “MY EVERYTHING” AND HONESTLY IT WAS REALLY GOOD. HONESTLY IT LOOKED VERY PROFESSIONAL AND WELL BUDGETED. NOW YOUR PROBABLY ASKING YOURSELF WHAT DOES THE TERM “WELL BUDGETED” MEAN, WELL TO PUT IT LIGHTLY IT MEANS THAT THERE WASN’T ANYTHING TOO EXTRAVAGANT  IN THE MUSIC VIDEO PRODUCTION TO PUT IT IN SMALLER WORDS STUFF THAT THEY CANNOT AFFORD IN REALITY.  THE SONG IS BASICALLY ABOUT BOY MEETS GIRL THE HAVE THIS LITTLE MONTAGE AT THE FABULOUS FOUNTAIN BLEAU  *THUMBS UP* THEN BOY REALIZES THAT SHE REALLY IS HIS EVERYTHING… HENCE THE SONG TITLE… ANOTHER THING I LIKED ABOUT THE VIDEO WAS THAT IT CAPTURED THE EVERYDAY LIFESTYLE OF A “FLORIDIAN”  BUT AT THE SAME TIME EXPOSED THE LIFESTYLES OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS IN THE BACKGROUND. ONE MORE THING I HAD TO NOTE ABOUT THE SONG AND HIM AS AN ARTIST IS THAT HE WENT OUT OF HIS ELEMENT AND MADE IT TO A “SONG” FOR EXAMPLE JASON DERULO’S “RIDING SOLO” IT HAS THAT FEEL TO IT WHICH IS A HUGE PLUS IN MY OPINION…. HERE IS THE VIDEO

THE NEXT SONG ON MY LIST IS TREY SONGZ FEAT NICKI MINAJ  “BOTTOMS UP” TO BE HONEST, I DIDN’T LIKE IT AT ALL I MEAN THE WHOLE SONG WAS JUST AWFUL. AND HAVE YOU EVERY LISTENED CLOSELY TO HIM SAYING “CHEERS TO THE GIRLS AND DEUCE TO THE GUYS”  I SWEAR HE SAID IT LIKE TEN TIMES OK TREY WE GET IT YOUR STRAIGHT. I GUESS THIS IS HIS WAY OF CONFIRMING HIS ORIENTATION LIKE ANYONE REALLY CARES BUT WHATEVER.  I DON’T EVEN KNOW THAT THE MEANING OF THAT SONG WAS BECAUSE IT WAS A COMPLETE TRAIN WRECK  NICKI SAVED WHAT LITTLE LIFE THE SONG HAD WITH HER “OVER THE TOP DRAMATIC” RAPPING STYLE.

AND ITS TIME FOR THE WORST MOVIE OF THE WEEK….AND THE WINNER IS PIRANHA 3-D OMG IT WAS TOTALLY GRAPHIC AND DISGUSTING LIKE SERIOUSLY WHATTHEHELLZ….I CAN’T DESCRIBE HOW BAD THIS MOVIE WAS BUT MY BUDDY KINGSLEY CAN

WHATTHEHELLZ LADY GAGA!!!!???

Today marks the sixth day since the Avant Garde Lady Gaga and Sasha Fierce Beyonce  premiered their latest smash hit telephone. Prior to the video being exposed to the public, there were rumors swarming that Gaga was a hermaphrodite and before that they said she was a devil worshiping star due to Gaga’s Bad Romance video. Now there are new rumors taking flight that suggests that Beyonce is a Lesbian.

Opinion: First off, all the Beyonce stands can tell you she is not a Lesbian. Sadly she is dating Rap Mogul Jay-Z, but it doesn’t mean that she is gay. I always had a feeling that the media would try some stupid stunt like this especially the time where they both partnered on Beyonce’s “Video Phone”. It seems like no one of the same-sex cannot collaborate on a video without the media questioning their sexuality. Alot of celebrities have collaborated to create smash hits. For example, R-Kelly and Jay-Z, Cassius and Ghostface Killah and Beyonce and Missy Elliott but does that mean they are homosexual???? no the HELLZ it doesn’t… Come on music industry and Lady Gaga stands WHATTHEHELLZ???!!!!

BON VOYAGE LIL WAYNE…..

Posted in media, music, whatthehellz with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 9, 2010 by kayiancouture

So Lil Wayne was sentenced yesterday to a year in jail for having a loaded gun on his tour bus. The Grammy-winning rapper bowed to supporters as he was led out of a courtroom in handcuffs to start his sentence. Arrested in July 2007, he pleaded guilty in October to attempted criminal possession of a weapon. He admitted he had the loaded .40-caliber semiautomatic gun on his bus. Gurl let me tell you, when his lawyer was with him and he heard his sentence, he look scared as HELLZ but look on the bright side Lil Wayne, D’Angelo can be your cell mate….Lil Wayne prepare to be bottomed by hard convicts hahahahaha….

This isn’t the true WHATTHEHELLZ, what’s really WHATTHEHELLZ is this stranger bitch groupie is rocking pretty much the same amount of tattoos as him. Honestly they look like sharpie marker drawings but you decide…

Opinion: Honestly Lil Wayne needs to be in jail surrounded by his “many” adoring convict fans because he committed a crime. Whether your rich and famous or piss poor, you need to pay the price. As for this stranger crazy groupie she needs to get “BOOM BOOM POWED” one good time because just looking at her is a nightmare. Celebrities today are going to jail for things they know damn well they cannot get away with, but they continue to do. I think it’s a cry for attention but I guarantee you one thing….there will be a lot of Lil Wayne stands at the prison until he gets out….OOOOOOO but you know what would be really funny??? if Lil Wayne came out of jail a little “sweeter”  mmmmmm “How you dew-in” Lil Wayne

WHATTHEHELLZ D’ANGELO

Posted in media, music, whatthehellz with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 9, 2010 by kayiancouture

Grammy Winner and R&B singer D’angelo did a huge no no…Last week on the Wendy Williams Show, she reported that he was arrested in the Village for allegedly offering $40.00 for oral sex…..translation, he wanted his peen-tis sucked OMG.!!!!!!!! here is the gotcha, the prostitute he offered the money to was an undercover cop!!! O NO!!!!! I guess he is not getting no more “Brown Sugar.” It was said he stashed $1200.00 dollars in his diva status range rover but let me get this straight,  you offered 40.00 for the undercover cop hoe and you had $1200.00 that night???? she aint gonna put out with $40.00, maybe $60.00 LMAO. As a result, he was sent to the clink and his biggest challenge now is trying not to get raped by inmates, but he will be fine because according to People, “He lost all his Deliciousness” so D’Angelo you’re in good shape by not getting raped. D’angelo after you get out and for some reason you do get raped in jail,  the media is going to ask you one question… “How Does It Feel”

Here is a serious WHATTHEHELLZ moment doesn’t his mug shot look exactly like Old Dirty Bastard?? ??? what do you think???

America’s Best Dance Crew Recap Lady Gaga Challenge

Posted in America's Best Dance Crew, music, whatthehellz with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 6, 2010 by kayiancouture

Last week on America’s Best Dance Crew, Jungle Boogie, Static Noyze and Hype 5-0 made it fierce, Heavy Impact gave sensuality but, Blueprint Cru and Saltare bombed their performance. Luckily week six was considered a savior week because no one was eliminated however next week the crews will face a double elimination. The challenge for this week was the long awaited Lady Gaga challenge. Crews showed their dance skills to such songs as “Beautiful Dirty Rich”, “Paparatzi”, “Pokerface”, “Bad Romance” and more.  Up first to experience and conquer the challenge was one of my personal favorites, Static Noyze

Static Noyze- Static Noyze infused their theatrical style with their outrageous sense of fashion to Lady Gaga’s “Beautiful Dirty Rich.” Their challenge was to best incorporate the table in their routine which I think they did a good job with. Peter from this crew played Lady Gaga and I think he did a hell-of-a good job…He killed that vogue dip and I think he demanded the crowd’s attention with this performance. I thought the tutting section with their legs was very new and fresh to the competition. From begging to end, their dance was very clean and it kept us guessing for a short time, but I did enjoy this crew’s performance

Blueprint Cru- OMG!!! They needed this scapegoat seriously, but it wasn’t their fault because the song selection was quite difficult and they chose to do the hardest piece last week. Their song for the Gaga challenge was “Bad Romance”. Let me tell you it was very Avant-Garde and mysterious. It was very original and signature to their crews name. Their wardrobe however was very brave…the females wore this blood red sheer outfit and the men almost resembled Hannibal. JC stated that this was the best performance of season five. Honestly I agree with him; it was very memorable not just for their look, but their whole routine was just flawless….I guess they have that mentality that “we aint gonna be in the bottom again” The B-boy section was very daring and it really required a lot of physical strength and I was super impressed.

Jungle boogie- Honestly I didn’t like this performance at all… Their song was “Telephone” featuring Ms. Sasha Fierce…Jungle boogie was one of my personal favorites, but this week may cost them to be in the bottom two next week. Two of the crew members were lost and confused and it was noticeable let me tell you…The performance as a whole was very “safe” and “sloppy”

Heavy Impact- Their performance was very “hype man ish” I did however like that they tried to interpret the subway railing into their routine. Overall the performance to “Love Game” was very plain. It had it points where you were like “OMG” but it was just nice to look at I guess. One of the crew members tired to get the audience hype and dismounted off the subway seat to a back flip which was sloppy and noticeable but I did however enjoy the attempt.

Hype 5-0- Hype 5-0’s routine song was one of my favorites, “Pokerface” they tried to incorporate the hand performance in the Gaga’s music video. Honestly they had a little bit of difficulty doing it but I honestly didn’t see the difficulty at all. It was nothing more than basic vogueing. The performance started off very Avant-Garde but it was very displeasing and disappointing. Honestly they do better when they are in the bottom two, under pressure than being safe to see another week.

Poreotics- Poreotics is another one of my favorite crews because they incorporate humor into their routines. They decided to use crutches to their interpretation of “paparazzi” which I think resembled something Saltare would do. But the performance was very interesting and humorous.  Poreotics took their tutting to the next level by having their hands to their backs, which I thought required a lot of practice and precision to get it just right. The middle of the performance was quite dull but I can’t throw shade at them because they are just that interesting.  The crew as a whole, were very precise, together and on point and I think they would make it to see another week.

Saltare- Saltare….Saltare…Saltare, you was touched by an angel let me tell you….last week’s performance was like WHATTHEHELLZ but due to the voting issues, they praised God. Had this not would’ve happened GUARENTEE you they would’ve gone home. Their song selection I thought was quite ironic because they don’t dance….that’s right their song was “Just Dance” I thought the dancing was very “1 and 2 and…” but in the middle of the performance they decided to stick to their strengths by using the jump ropes. Overall it was a decent recovery and the judges continued to admire Saltare once again.

At the end of the only one crew was granted immunity from elimination for next week’s challenge and it was…..BLUEPRINT CRU’S very Avant-Garde performance….Next week they are going back in time to the retro and nostalgic 1970’s who will be eliminated??? Maybe Hype 5-0 and Jungle Boogie or Heavy Impact and Jungle Boogie.

WHERETHEHELLZ IS J-KWON???

Posted in media, music, whatthehellz with tags , , , , , , on March 4, 2010 by kayiancouture

According to mediatakeout.com St.Louis rapper J-kwon has been pronounced missing for a little over a month now… In case you lived under a rock lately, he is known for his smash club hit Everybody In The Club Get Tipsy and Hood Hop which didn’t do so good. In the music game, I believe its been about ten years since we heard form him but he wasn’t all that great. However he was often compared to New-York Rapper Cassidy so that’s something to keep in mind. According to J-kwon label, he has completely dropped from the face of the earth…Now it’s time to worry fans (if he still has some that is). Here is J-Kwon’s record label statement…

J-Kwon is a big part of the Gracie family, and we are obviously increasingly worried and want to make sure he is ok. We’ve already received thousands of emails from fans and supporters who are worried about J-Kwon, and we want everyone to know how much we appreciate the love and support.

If anyone has seen J-Kwon or has access to him, please let him know we are worried about him, and to please let us know everything is ok.

When it rains it pours, Mediatakeout.com just revealed that  J-Kwon may have gotten into the WRONG BUSINESS . . . and may have gotten CAUGHT UP!!! so you know what that means…..someone probably “Hood-Hop’ed” all over his behind lol but did someone really snatch J-kwon or is this all a stunt???  WHO KNOWS…..

What ever happened to……

Posted in fashion, media, music, whatthehellz with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 4, 2010 by kayiancouture

What ever happened to designer brands like Ed Hardy, Affliction and Pastelle???  As we know the first two designer brands were popular before the recession and a bit during the recession, but it seems to have vanished off the face of the fashion industry. Personally, Ed Hardy was bound to vanish into the darkness because their designs were “out there” and not alot of people could the comprehend Christian Audigier’s vision but honestly his vision was left to question. Affliction however was more higher end and more popular but it was more expensive also. You don’t really see people our age wearing Affliction now-a-days but your couldn’t turn a corner without seeing Affliction back in 2008- early 2009. In comparison to Abercrombie, there really isn’t a demand for higher end clothing anymore, instead consumers are looking for more bargains i.e. Forever 21 and Plato’s Closet.

Ed Hardy is still hanging in there even though they are outrageously priced it still doesn’t stop consumers from passing a store model and looking in admiration hoping that one day it could be them……A WORK OF ART

Affliction to me was like the more snob-ish cousin of Ed Hardy serving a little more customers than its cousin but Affliction has an edge on the competion. Why did I just say that?? well Affliction often takes their merchandise to the UFC and allowing them to model their collections along with celebrities. Speaking of celebrities their “meal ticket” in my opinion would have to be Mindfreak’s  own Chris Angel. I mean in every episode he is constantly rocking something new from their line but it would be a good idea for them to merge if they haven’t already.  Despite their celebrity support,  Affliction will never be the same again thanks to the recession.

Pastelle….Pastelle…Pastelle… tisk tisk tisk

For those of you who don’t know Pastelle, it was suppose to be Rap Artist’s Kanye West’s line but Unfortunately, it won’t be released EVER!!!  According to New York Fashion, they saw West as a meticulous designer even after working on Pastelle for over a year, he only produced four Pastelle pieces, including three articles of clothing and a belt. But if he eventually created enough clothing to shoot what appeared to be a look book, why all of a sudden take it all back?

Perhaps Kanye is the kind of creator who is never satisfied. The kind of creator who never sees the genius in his own work. Karl Lagerfeld may dash off sketch after sketch and produce outfit after outfit, but maybe Kanye torments himself over every detail, never able to reconcile his vision with the resulting physical product. And so he has scrapped that which will never be good enough  in his eyes. Either that, or this is just some elaborate hoax to drum up more press and excitement for the line Kanye’s reps say he will eventually launch.

Sadly we shall never see Pastelle but it was said that he was working on another line that should be released very soon so keep us posted Kanye…

Pastelle in my opinion was like the male equalivalent of Hellz-Bellz. Hellz was considered Punk-Retro and Pastelle is considered new age Street-Retro, you decide… Anywho here is some of his works or art provided by Pastelleclothing.com.
