Solange says look Bee I can do it too!!!!! This is a good look for Solange. Armani is a very relevant designer who doesn't normally higher musical artist to promote their brand.

"Armani Jeans expresses my vision of a young, independent, casual lifestyle with a strong and cool, fashion sensibility. Solange epitomises this style perfectly and brings to it that swing so evident in her new single, I Decided," Giorgio Armani commented on his newest muse.
The profile-boosting partnership couldn't come at a better time for Solange, whose second album, SoL-AngeL and the Hadley Street Dreams (from which I Decided is taken), is released on August 26 prior to her embarking on a worldwide tour this autumn.

Set in South Carolina in 1964, the film is the moving tale of Lily Owens (Fanning) a 14 year-old girl who is haunted by the memory of her late mother (Burton). To escape her lonely life and troubled relationship with her father (Bettany), Lily flees with Rosaleen (Hudson), her caregiver and only friend, to a South Carolina town that holds the secret to her mother's past. Taken in by the intelligent and independent Boatwright sisters (Latifah, Okonedo and Keys), Lily finds solace in their mesmerizing world of beekeeping, honey and the Black Madonna. I will be there opening night with my Red Vines and Pink Lemonade!! SAYIT!!!

I'm glad to have the pleasure to introduce a good friend of mine, who is now an columnist for my website, Ms. Joy Hallman. Make sure you check out her column that will be posted here every week and be sure to add some "Joy To Your Life""

Peace & Love,

Living in HollyWEIRD can sometimes take its toll on those of us who work in the wonderful world of Entertainment. How do you handle it when Auditions / Jobs that you seemingly believed you've had "in the pocket" somehow slip out of your range? What about when people that you are sure you can rely on give you the 52 fake out and you suddenly realize you are alone...

People say that we are crazy to stay in a business like this. But we know and live by the old adage, "There's NO Business like Show Business!" Most of us have a calling for this Industry. It chose us, not the other way around.

Artists / Entertainers face more rejection in one year than most human beings do in a lifetime. We are willing to give our lives to the adrenaline of "that" 8 count, to deliver "that" line perfectly, to paint "that" canvas exactly as we choose it to be. In those precious moments, we've entered into our Sacred Space. It is in those moments, we sometimes feel as connected to the world and or as close to God as one could ever feel.

So I am blogging this column, "Add some joy to your life," to let you know that you ARE worthy!!! You are special!!!! Your talent is amazing!!!! ...and more so than anything, I want you to know that you are not alone. Even in your darkest hour, you are not alone. Separation is an illusion! What is for you is for you and you only. No man can close doors that Spirit has opened for you. "You will succeed, 99 and 1/8th's Guaranteed!" - Dr. Suess.

So, go ahead, sort out your thoughts about how those situations made you feel and then release them. Forgive yourself for feeling as though you've done anything wrong and forgive those around you. I know it's not easy but other opportunities and people will come. They will show up as if by magic.

So, maybe we are a little nutty for staying in the business, but even the mighty Oak Tree was once a nut like you.

Miley Cyrus will land her second No. 1 album on The Billboard 200 tomorrow (July 30), as "Breakout" (Hollywood) bows with 371,000 U.S. copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That's the second-biggest sales week of the year for a female artist, following the 463,000 debut of Mariah Carey's "E=MC2" (Island/IDJMG).

Cyrus' last album, the half soundtrack, half studio set "Hannah Montana 2/Meet Miley Cyrus" (Hollywood/Walt Disney), started at No. 1 last summer with 326,000.

The first "Hanna Montana" soundtrack, which launched her recording career, also bowed at No. 1 in 2006, with first-week sales of 281,000. It went on to be the best seller of that year's fourth quarter with less than three months of shelf life.

Alicia Keys and the White Stripes' Jack White will record the theme song to "Quantum of Solace," the 22nd James Bond film, which hits U.S. theaters Nov. 7.

The song, "Another Way To Die," will be the first duet in Bond soundtrack history. White wrote and produced the song, and also will play drums. The soundtrack to the movie will be released Oct. 28.

The score for the film will be composed by David Arnold.

"Quantum of Solace," starring Daniel Craig, will be directed by Marc Forster from a screenplay by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and Paul Haggis.

Amy Winehouse and Leona Lewis had previously been rumored as the vocalists for the latest Bond theme.

Just a note is it me or does the girl in all black in the front remind you of Christina Grady? P.S.

Saint Louis rap star Nelly has been named the first ever spokesmodel for Sean John Underwear, it was announced today (July 28).

Nelly will be featured in the Fall campaign promoting Sean John’s collection of underwear and loungewear.

The campaign, which was shot by Randee St. Nicholas, showcases Nelly in a modern home overlooking Los Angeles, while modeling the underwear.

"I have been a big fan of Diddy and the Sean John clothing line for years,” Nelly told in a statement. “So, when they asked me to work with them, it was a real honor. I hope my fans will enjoy this campaign as much as I did shooting it."

Sean “Diddy” Combs, founder of Sean John, hopes Nelly’s involvement will help boost Sean John’s earnings, which are pegged at about $525 million annually.

"I have known Nelly for many years and I really admire his work. To me, Nelly is the quintessential definition of the Sean John man,” Combs elaborated. “He has the attitude, the swagger, and most of all the physique that our customers can both aspire and relate to. And let's be honest, all of the ladies out there are going to be thanking us for this campaign.”

Styles in the Sean John Underwear line include briefs, boxer-briefs, boxers, undershirts, pajamas and robes.
