Week Review

Please forgive my tardy week and a half; I've been sooo busy with work, preparing for school, organizing my room...and did I say work? But all the same, I've had some really random and fun adventures.

I'll update you about movie screenings, plays, dinners and...a random encounter with Ashley Olsen. 

Coming Soon! Promise!

Eminem - We Made You (Official Music Video) HQ

One could argue that this video is classic Eminem, but doing a remake of "Without Me" or "The Real Slim Shady" isn't what I've been waiting four or so years for. I'm disappointed.

Topshop Madness

It's top something--model or shop. But I tell ya, this is mayhem I'm totally down for.

Harlem Heights Look Alikes Briana Bigham v. Pam Grier and Brooke Crittendon v. Keri Hilson

Once again I'm saying this is NOT a Harlem Heights blog, but I can't help but talk about these people. These comparisons are about as simple as the show. Tell me what you think:

The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency-- Top Rated

Last night I watched the premiere of The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, not once, but twice. Jill Scott's portrayal of Precious Ramotswe is dead on; she is determined, unapologetic and warm all at once. Anika Noni Rose, however, could tone down secretary Mma Makutsi. She's ambitious, but perhaps overacted. Somehow I think she'll settle perfectly into the character as the season continues. Overall, I'm really proud of Ladies, and HBO for showing Botswana (and Africa) as something majestic, human and likable. Preach on.

Keri Keri Quite Contrary

I calendared in the Keri Hilson album release party for the 27, but really it was last night at the Pink Elephant on 27th street. **Doe**. Renita text me around 11 to ask if I was inside the venue--I was in my bed. According to all accounts, the place was jam packed inside, and if you didn't hold any weight at the door, it was best to step off. be like that sometimes. This is one event I'm glad I did not attempt.

Ms. Shannel (RuPaul's Drag Race) v. Fergie

I think it's the eyes, heavy makeup and arched eyebrows that make Ms. Shannel, drag queen Goddess, look just like Fergie. MAC should do tag-team ads with these two. Fierce and Faboosh.
