So, the night of the Grammy's we spent with our usual group of friends, who are all musicians to have "family" dinner and support some of the other people we know who were performing on the Grammy's on Sunday.
First, let me just say best performances was the Tribute to Bob Marley (because I love the energy of Bruno Mars' band) and of course, my white boy crush Justin JT Timberlake's come back performance!!!!
See the tall black guy back there on Bass, thats our good friend Adam Blackstone - husband to one of my homegirls as well. He is the Music Director who is literally taking EVERY gig in the business.
On backgrounds, closest black male to JT is Aaron Camper, used to sing with Gospel Artist Tye Tribbett, now performing with JT and Chris Brown and some others and an Artist in his own right.
See this guy on horns, Dontae Winslow - we went to the same high school, just different times and have been around the same people for a good while. Awesome trumpeter I might add. His wife is an AMAZING singer.
And I can't lie - THEY WERE AWESOME!
It warms my heart seeing folk I know doing BIG things!
Keep up the GREAT work.
Now to this Red Carpet for just a bit:
Well, one this dress code issued was clearly a publicity stunt that would have us peeled to the T.V. to see who would break the rules - it failed. Ratings were still down.
I remember seeing a lot of Green, Black, White and Red on the Red Carpet.
Green happens to be my favorite color so every green dress I was drooling over...
C'mon Florence - Givenchy or not - you absolutely look like a character from The Land Before Time.
Also in the Worst Category -
Most true to self: Estelle and Janelle Monae
Its that look you see and say "only her"
And now to the Send OFFS!
Do you watch the Bachelor?
THANK MY LUCKY STARS, Sean has finally seen the light!
That girl Tierra was working my nerves ALL season long.
Last night she went from this with Sean-
To this - scary meltdown lady!
Screaming at the women in the house saying stuff like "I HAVE A SPARKLE!" and "I CAN'T CONTROL MY EYEBROW!"
Ma'am have a seat!
and in true hilarious form, this dramatic chicks eyebrow has a Twitter account that has over 17,000 followers?! WHY!? LOL
Sean saw the aftermath and sent her home packing with a quickness - funny thing is the other girls had no idea that he even sent her home. Awww so close Miss "I can get any guy to marry me!" Not after they watch this show.
Rumor has it that Sean ends up with this quiet lovely young lady named Catherine.
Guess we shall soon see.
