Marvel Wants Beyoncé For Comic Book Movie Role?

celebs 13If Marvel likes Beyoncé, then they should put a ring on it.

The Daily Star is reporting that Marvel Studios wants singer and part-time actress Beyoncé Knowles to join the Avengers.

“We would love to have Beyoncé on board, almost certainly as a newcomer to the screen from Marvel’s existing catalogue of comic book characters,” an unnamed senior executive at Disney told The Daily Star. Continue reading

KD’s Fashion Police: The Met Gala 2015

Hello, guys, it’s John Ocean again, yes that John Ocean, and no thank you, I did not. So, the Met Gala came and went, and I loved every minute of it. I did not want any secondhand stories, so I had to buy black market *sigh* to charge the inverter the day before, and then still filled the generator tank for the day (only Nigerians will understand). I mean, this is the Oscars of Fashion. We cannot leave matters in the hands of PHCN.

The red carpet did not disappoint. These ladies (and gentlemen) brought their A-game. Not minding a few disappointments, I was reminded that our stars on this side of the planet are light years behind on the fashion stakes. Meanwhile, when I saw Kris Jenner, I was positive Kanye had nude photos of Anna Wintour that he is using to blackmail her, because Kris has no place at the Met Gala. Anna had previously said she does not invite reality TV stars to the event, because she does not consider them actors. But then, Kanye blackmailed her into letting Kim attend last year. Now Mama Kris this year. No nau! Kanye is blackmailing Anna. Simple! And I shall find out why.

Anyway, let’s delve into some fashion with my Hits, Misses and the ‘Erm…Okay’. Feel free to disagree where necessary.

Sarah Jessica Parker

She came like a warrior with blazing guns to a pistol fight, which is really not surprising, considering she played Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City. The Philip Treacy headpiece was amazing and I believe this picture was what Alicia Keys had in mind when she did the ‘This Girl Is On Fire’ song.

I think she embodied the theme of the event very well and looked like a Chinese goddess coming down to destroy the Kardashians.

They both wore arty gowns and coordinated their outfits in a sort of Goth-sexy way and I loved it. I especially love Madonna, that woman keeps defying her age! She is the real queen. #NoShade Continue reading

STITCHES AND BRITCHES

stitches and britchesAll my life, I have tried to understand the world of fashion. I have tried to understand why I shouldn’t wear brown and black together (I refuse to use the word ‘can’t’ here), but it seems to be a mortal sin by some people’s standards). I have tried to get the drift of colour blocking, layering and every other fashion trend that has made it to the forefront every year. I have tried to know the importance of why a large buckled belt is more suitable for my jeans than my simple black thin belt. I really have tried, but in the class of fashion and style, I seem to always sit in the dunce corner with my cone-shaped hat steadily on…and that’s just men’s fashion.

So, imagine my absolute incredulity when I woke up on Tuesday morning to see my BBM and Instagram timelines flooded with images from the Met Gala. It has to be said that this annual event is really a fundraiser for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, and it heralds the beginning of the exhibition for that year. So in line with this, there is a running theme every year; and guess what? China was served this year. In spades! No one asked how much was raised o…not at all! It was all about who wore what.

Bradley Cooper Hopes To Direct and Co-Star with Beyoncé in ‘A Star Is Born’ Remake

star_is_beyoncedAh, A Star Is Born — ageless and evergreen. The classic tale of a future has-been eclipsed by the rising stardom of his more talented wife has been remade more times in Hollywood than Kim Kardashian’s changed lovers. Hoping to turn this dream into a reality, noted Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper is in talks with Warner Bros. to make his directorial debut with the film, according to Deadline. But who — who, I ask?! — could possibly fill the shoes immortally inhabited by Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand?

Beyoncé…

Say it softly, and it’s almost like praying. Continue reading

Sam Smith accepts the award for best new artist at the 57th annual Grammy Awards in Los AngelesSam Smith was the toast of the 57th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (08Feb15), walking away with four of the six honours he was nominated for, including the coveted Record of the Year.

The British soul sensation kicked off his celebrations early after claiming the very first award of the televised show for Best New Artist.

He soon followed it up with the Best Pop Vocal Album for In The Lonely Hour, and was back onstage towards the end of the Los Angeles ceremony to wrap up his big night with wins for Song of the Year and Record of the Year for Stay With Me.

Taking to the stage for the fourth time, Smith poked fun at the ex-boyfriend who inspired the album, saying, “This is the best night of my life. I wanna thank the man who this record is about… Thank you so much for breaking my heart because you got me four Grammys!” Continue reading

Sometimes, it’s always about Beyoncé’s hair

1413380810644_Image_galleryImage_Mandatory_Credit_Photo_byOk, so y’all know it won’t be a complete day in this here gaybourhood if we don’t talk about what Beyoncé has done with her hair. Lol.

The superstar singer has only to sneeze loudly to send her millions of fans into a frenzy, but the reaction to her new super-short ‘bangs’ has been intense to say the least.

The 33-year-old singer unveiled the extreme fringe on a trip to London with husband Jay-Z, and while the queen of pop is beautiful enough to pull off many looks, most seem to think that this has been a hair fail for the mega star and mother-of-one.

But while Beyoncé’s undeniable natural beauty means it is difficult for her to put a foot wrong in the fashion stakes, opinion on her new harsh hair cut has been less than complimentary. Check out some of the tweets posted by fans below. Continue reading
