THE M·A·C AIDS FUND announces Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin as its newest spokespersons to represent the 2012 VIVA GLAM campaign! Nicki and Ricky together at last, this is a match made in beauty heaven. The new 2012 VIVA GLAM will launch in February 2012.  VIVA GLAM lip products donating 100 percent of the sale price to fight HIV/AIDS. 
Word has it Nicki and Ricky are in Miami today shooting the campaign visuals with famed photographer David La Chappelle. This campaign is going to be crazy good! I am happy to see  Nicki and Ricky join a cadre of A-list talent representing the fund over the years including Elton John, Mary J. Blige, Cydni Lauper, Lady Gaga, RuPaul and rap artist Eve to name a few. 


Congrats Ricky Martin …

J.Lo and Marc Anthony are no more. Yes the 7 year love story has come to a shocking end. No one knew that there was trouble in paradise. Many are asking why are they breaking up? Marc Anthony and Jennifer have tons of joint projects in the work. They have a merchandise line coming out soon at Kohl's, a reality talent search show called Q'Viva! (The Chosen), and the most important joint venture of all - parents to twin! It seems that this split will mostlikely be quick and hopefully drama free. I wish these guys the best! So Sad!

Beyonce is know as a musical diva but who would have thought that Ms B. would drop $14,000 shopping in London yesterday with her mom, Tina Knowles! That is probably chump change to the multi platinum artist. Go ahead "B" and have yourself a shopping spree, You deserve it! I wonder what she brought? 


So all my fashion divas and gurus, what would you buy if you had a$14,000 but had to spend it in an hour and a half? 




Alexander Wang + Music = Viral Masterpiece





I am loving Alexander's T by Alexander Wang campaign featuring Santigold & Spankrock. The sleek black and white vignette was genius. This was a great viral campaign. I am also loving the T by Alexander Wang collection, very sleek and classic line. Side Note: I can't wait to see Santigold perform at the Afro-Punk Festival in BK!
