MG* Spy: Angie Lola Luv!

Angie, Angel, Lola-Luv... Whatever you know her by you can't deny her recent success. She went from 50cent's protege to the Bo$$! Recently MG*caught her on the set of her new film, "Crazy Like A Fox" via her new fan site and RealTalk NY. All we can say is we can't knock her hustle & we hope the D.C. diva does her thing! The movie comes out sometime in 2008, but until then you can keep tabs on Lola-Luv on

She release two sort of official singles Champagne.Chronic Nightcap and White Picket Dreams, both of which will be on her upcoming album Hadley Street Dreams. Since then, Solo remixed Champagne. Chronic Nightcap with Weezy F. Baby! HOT! Recently she also signed a new deal with Geffen Records and plans to drop her album in the 2nd quarter of 2008.

All we can say is 'Can't wait'...we'll keep you updated!

MG* Swag: Hammer Time

STOP! Hammer Time!! At least according to some of the designers featured in Paris' fashion week. Spring 2008 collections were filled with 'flowy-airy' type fabrics that swing away from the silhouette. Nice, gives us room for that second scoop of ice cream! Anyway, one noticeable trend was the reincarnation of the 'Hammer Pants'. So far we're on board with this trend especially if the Nina Ricci's (far right) are available in our size! :) What do YOU think?

At least we know Hammer would be Proud!?!

MG* New Music Review: Ciara

That's riiiiight! (in our southern accent) "Cici" - Ciara's country alter ego has officially dropped her latest video. She definitely has the whole "get me bodied" theme down! Lol. Ciara brings her a-game with her dance moves I bet she gives 50 cent a run for his $$$. Go Cici! But we'll get back to you with those high top Reebok's and that outfit?!?

MG* Product Pick!: Happy Holidays!

You have worked all year and just in case you didn't get that B'Phone, that Amy Winehouse cd, a zune, a Vicky Secret bra or your favorite perfume, Now's your chance! We vote the Amy Winehouse cd. It's something every Material Girl should have on hand! ♥

MG* New Music Review: Ashlee Simpson

It seems like producer Timbaland has the magic touch with music these days. He does it again with Ashlee Simpson giving her a retro-80's type sound. It's kinda cool the video definitely goes with the song. Congrats Ashlee on keeping up the cool style throughout your career.

MG* New Music Review: Britney Spears

Britney Spears recently released her second single off the album "Blackout" and it's just what we wanted to hear from her. We have to admit we lost hope in Ms. Spears, but she definitely proved us wrong with this single. She snaps back at all her critics and hopefully shuts them up for good. Good, now only if she can help her sis Jamie Lynn. What is it with the Spears family?

MG* Product Pick!: Princess!

Vera Wang released her perfume Princess a while ago but we decided it's our choice scent of the year. It's almost the end of the year and 2008 we hear will be great, so smell good for the occasion! You were 'Born to Rule'!

MG* 'Update Ya': The Beyonce Experience

She must be stopped! Just joking, Go "B", take over the world!!! (MG style) We just finished watching the Beyonce Experience and it was amazing! Bey gives her all and doesn't stop there. At first, we were a little weary of watching the "Experience" on the small screen but watching it just makes you wanna sing along, wish you were there. She performed every song from B'Day and then some. Without giving too much away, Beyonce even brings out some all stars to help her take over the world or the stage in this instance; Hint: think of her usual artist collabos. Yes, Bey gives you your money's worth, so go cop you a copy. Lol!

There is also a Beyonce Experience live album releasing, so just in case you Love the live version of "Irreplaceable" like us; get you a copy. Christmas present, maybe?

New Music Review: Cheri Dennis

Well, Miss Dennis is back again with her solo effort(In and Out of Love) and we kinda digg it! We especially love, "Spaced Out" It's our new anthem. It's been a while since we've heard the first lady of Bad Boy (damn that used to be Faith and before her Mary J, this girl got shoes to fill...) Anywho, the sweet-voiced Cheri really makes her mark with this song, and it's almost sad that her album isn't filled with songs like this one. Check her out on iTunes yall, she's got some classic love ballads and a really nice melodic sound. Go Cheri!

Happy Holidays!: Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!

MG* Holidaze: All Souls Day!!

MG* Spy: Rihanna

Ri-Ri recently performed over the weekend for the annual Powerhouse concert and definitely tapped into the dark side. She performed in a bondage out that was of course haute couture tailor made for her shows. Little Miss Sunshine has grown up on us.

MG*: Go Gadget Go!

Well maybe Beyonce is unstoppable, she recently linked up with Samsung and Sprint to release the irreplaceable phone, (HAH!) The B'phone according to Bey' has already pre-loaded Beyonce music and ringtones and pictures from the songstress. So if for some reason you don't get enough Beyonce go get the B'phone.

MG*: Update Ya! Bad Boy Women

It's been a while, we know. But we're back like we left something and this time we're bringing you the latest on the CEO of Bad Boy, Mr. Diddy himself. Diddy has decided to apply his style sense to a women's line. You may already recognize the spokes models; Miss Cassie and Lauren London. Recognize the other face? No not Diddy, but it's the winner and new member of the Pussycat Dolls Asia. (Good choice Diddy!) You can of course find the latest Sean John wear at the website and will be available soon at a store near you.

MG* Girl Spy!

Kelly- Ms. Kelly looked naturally beautiful in this photo we spotted of her in NYC coming from an interview. We hear that her next single is "Work" off of her cd.

Ashanti- Ms. Ashanti was looking great as usual, with her family celebrating her Mother's birthday.

R.I.P. to Liz Claiborne: The Boss of 9-5...

Even though we are super late. How could we be a fashion/life/music/etc, etc. blog if we were not to pay homage to Liz Claiborne?!? The fashion icon of the working woman. Liz was noted for representing for the earlier generation of fashion in the workplace. A writer for the Washington Post dubs her as "The Boss of 9-5". We think she's just the BOSS! She started an empire that is carried on today by brands like Juicy Couture, Enyce, and so many more. Thanks Liz!

Here's to a life well lived!

MG* New Music Review: Rihanna!

Wow, Rihanna has been coming full force lately! Except this time around the good girl gone bad is taking no prisoners with her glam rock style. WE LOVE it! But that's no surprise if she wants to be the next Madonna as she hopes to be. We say she has some big high heel pumps to fill but, she is well on her way to becoming the next 'Material Girl' herself! Go Ri-Ri !

Friday, July 20, 2007

MG* New Music Review: Solange: Solo Star!

It's time for round two of Solange's solo effort. Except, this time Solange is experienced, and it SHOWS on her latest singles. With all the news that's been surrounding her in the past few years, the Solo Star puts it all into perspective in "White Picket Dreams". AND we kinda digg it. It has a cool neo-soul feel to it, but that's no surprise because Solange has been known to like neo soul artists; Q-tip hosted her 21st birthday! how cool is that?

Anyway tell us what you think... We think Solange needs to hook us up with those shoes!

MG* Guy Spy

T.I.- So there is a God. At least we think so, MG* peeped a very bronzed T.I. in south beach at club PRIVE in Miami. We only wish that when we went to Miami it looked as good as this. [sigh]

Mario- The oh-so-cool Mario was spotted at Duvet in NYC last Sunday hosting "Pillow talk Sundays". He looks suave as usual. This event also featured the 'oh-so-cool rapper' Cam'ron.

Jim Jones- HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! We heard it was a celebration for Jim Jones and by the looks of the pictures, (Baaaallllliinnnn-Sorry, had to say it.) the place was HOT! Anyway, we wish the Capo an even hotter year! sweat looks kinda good on you Jim. :)

It's a cross between GAP & H&M at Target prices. And speaking of prices...drumroll please...everything in this line is under $20! Yup, you read right, $20. WE AGREE SJP Fashion shouldn't be a luxury.

MG* Designer of the Week: Calvin Klein!

I've always had a clear design philosophy and point of view about being modern, sophisticated, sexy, clean and minimal. They all apply to my design esthetic. -- Calvin Klein in Women's Wear Daily.

Material G! Spy!

Kelly Rowland- Kelly we see you taggin' the wall! Kelly looks nice as usual in the pic. MG* spotted her in her Hometown of Houston, TX coming from an interview with the Mad Hatta. She was there promotin her new album which MG* thinks is gonna be hot. Watch out Bee, Kelly's comin for the number 1 spot!

Lil Kim- MG* recently spotted Kim in NYC the other night at club Reign. She looks like she's hangin' out with her bee hive, just tryna have fun. Go Kim!

Beyonce- When you see that girl comin back up! Bee was spotted on stage in Sydney earlier this week, and by the looks of things she was rockin a Tina Knowles original. ;) She was shakin' her jelly as usual and will soon be in a town near you. So we can re-live B'day all over again!

"What's the worst that can happen? If it doesn't do well I can put on my big girl panties, deal with it and move on."
-Halle Berry

Also, CONGRATULATIONS! Halle, on your new Hollywood star!

MG* New Music Review: Eve!

Just in case you don't watch TV One daily and you actually miss Eve, the pitbull in a skirt is back! In the words of Tyra, her new single cover is fierce. As for the actual song, it's a certified club song. But, it's definitely not what we're use to from Eve. Swizz Beatz produced this track and he delivers as usual, but, Eve seems like she has come a long way from her Philly roots.

MG* needs a second opinion, what do you think?

Dear MG!,

LADIES, NEED ADVICE?

Welcome to Trinidad and Tobago, a unique Caribbean paradise.There is no place in the world quite like this tiny twin island republic of 1.3 million ethnically diverse people. Bursting with spirit and a heady mix of cultural activities, beautiful people, eco adventure and culinary delights, Trinidad and Tobago has something for everyone. Located just off the tip of Venezuela, Trinidad, the larger and livelier of the islands, is an industrial giant boasting exciting nightlife, a robust energy sector and growing manufacturing industry. (


Play in the waves, relax under a swaying palm: one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, the lovely Punta Cana shoreline is protected by law, ensuring that no manmade structure can detract from this natural beauty. These calm tranquil beaches are perfect for those who love to enjoy their favourite watersport, sample the great diving. Punta Cana is famous for its European style hotels and shopping for traditional local arts and crafts. Punta Cana's golf courses are second to none. (


Being the Second City in Jamaica is not easy; it is like being the second child in a family, not always first, not really last, but you get to wear the hand-me-down's from your older brothers or sisters. So not everything gets fixed in time, roads and other infrastructure need repair. HOWEVER we have always been the Tourism Capital of JAMAICA and nobody can take that away from us. Because the Montegonians are proud people, always different from the Kingstonians, the Big City people; we call ourselves "The Republic" and "The Friendly City" and that's what we are. (


A Cancun vacation means long stretches of white beaches leading to the bluest waters of the Caribbean Sea making it a top destination for beach lovers. The Cancun 'Hotel Zone' offers luxurious hotels that provide a great base for daytime activities such as snorkeling by the reef or lazing on the beach to an unsurpassed night of fun with some of the best nightlife in the world. Downtown Cancun is the place to go for authentic Mexican food and to see the life and culture of 'real' Mexico. Plenty of tours, nightclubs, restaurants, water sports and ancient Mayan ruins in near proximity mean there is something for everyone. (


There’s no doubt that Florida makes a fun vacation destination for travelers of all disposition, but a certain type of person probably isn’t satisfied with common scenes of golf courses, beachcombing and quiet strolls along nearly-empty sidewalks. These kinds of areas are perfect for those looking to escape the madness of the world, but sometimes a different kind of madness does the job just as well. South Beach is famously filled with energy, nightlife options, celebrity sightings and beautiful people. If these are the things that would best take you away from your current situation, providing you with the kind of vacation you need to calm you down and loosen you up, there’s no place like South Beach. (

MG* Trend-a-licious!

If you've been living under a rock and you missed the I Love New York Finale, then 'let MG* Update Ya!' Well, Tango be the block and New York's the light that keeps the streets on...LOL. Yup, Ms. NY picked Tango and told Chance "to the left, to the left!" Of course New York's mom was Happy and to our surprise Tango asked NY to marry him! Yup they're engaged. It was an interesting show to say the least, but MG* is definitely waiting on the reunion show on April 15.
