If you haven't yet watched HBO's "Big Little Lies" featuring Zoe Kravitz, then you are doing yourself a terrible disservice. On the critically acclaimed limited series, Zoe Kravitz plays Bonnie Carlson, the free-spirited second wife of Nathan Carlson— the ex-husband of Monterey, California’s queen bee, Madeline Martha Mackenzie. Kravitz plays the only black woman on the show. Allure magazine writes, "Her character, Bonnie, kind of an alt-left paragon on the surface at least, seems uncannily laid-back and reasonable and generous in the drama’s tense, repressive environment, full of helicopter moms and competitive parenting." Now Zoe is featured on Allure Magazine's June 2017 cover and in light of recent political events, in the article she speaks on identity politics. Zoe states, “Racism is very real, and white supremacy is going strong.” And identity is not something to be mocked or taken lightly. It’s better in her words: “I am definitely mixed. Both my parents are mixed. I have white family on both sides. The older I get, the more I experience life, I am identifying more and more with being black, and what that means — being more and more proud of that and feeling connected to my roots and my history. It’s been a really interesting journey because I was always one of the only black kids in any of my schools. I went to private schools full of white kids. I think a lot of that made me want to blend in or not be looked at as black. The white kids are always talking about your hair and making you feel weird. I had this struggle of accepting myself as black and loving that part of myself. And now I’m so in love with my culture and so proud to be black. It’s still ongoing, but a big shift has occurred. My dad especially has always been very connected to his history, and it’s important to him that I understand where I come from.”

A true Rockstar at heart, RIHANNA graces the pages in the November issue of Vanity Fair Magazine through incredible photography by world-renowned photographer, Annie Leibovitz.

One of the images show Rihanna in the street with fans in Old Havana while posing alongside a 1959 Chevrolet Impala and 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II. I absolutely love it!
We’re starting off the New Year at one of my favorite places on planet Earth and my secret hideaway. It’s a magical place, similar to the fictional land of Oz, with vivid imagery and colors. Every inch of the walls at the abandoned Swim Gym Aquatic Sports Park in Key Biscayne (Miami) is covered with psychedelic street art that will blow your mind. There’s a fence that closes off the park stating, “NO TRESPASSING. This area is a designated construction site. Anyone who trespasses on this property, commits a FELONY…Posted by the City of Miami.” So these photos may be the last pics anyone sees.
Who didn't love iconic rocker, KURT COBAIN?? Even if you weren't a heavy metal fan, his group, NIRVANA, mesmerized music lovers of all genres and continues to have a cult following today. As we all know, 20 years ago this month, at the height of his career, Cobain killed himself, leaving behind the infamous suicide note. According to CBS news, when police arrived to find Cobain dead at his Seattle area home on April 8, 1994, another handwritten note to his wife Courtney Love was found, taken from his wallet, logged into evidence in the Seattle Police Department (SPD) case file, and never made public.

Talk about having one of the best times ever!! “Blurred Lines” &“Get Lucky’s”, Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams graced the stage yesterday at the glamorous Fountainebleu Hilton on world famous Miami Beach…an event that’s part of the hotel’s recurring BleauLive series. It was too hot for clothes and all the sexy people sipped champagne and cocktails by the pool while listening to the inviting vocals of the R&B superstar and the Grammy-winning super-producer, both with the two biggest songs of the summer! My favorite Pharrell performance was ‘Beautiful’ off of Snoop’s album, where he serenaded bikini babes. And Thicke kicked things off with ‘I Wanna Love You Girl’, ending with his hit ‘Blurred Lines’. The pool party and concert were absolutely a great way to celebrate Labor Day Weekend! Check out the pics.
TIME LAPSED - by Lisa Ford Totally unplanned, and against my will, I took an impromptu vacation, the first in about four years. After many months of running a hundred miles a minute, my body gave way and forced me to slow down. I silenced myself, refraining from blogging and social media to gain perspective. And today, I feel much better. Now before you ask, “Where were you, Lisa? I know you were at the best parties. I know you were hanging with all the celebrities getting twisted off the alcohol and all that!!” Naw, not this time... In reality, I didn’t have to go ANYWHERE to have a good time. When you see these pics and the time lapse video of my neighborhood, you’ll know why. I’m going get a little personal on the blog this time, and bring you into my world. I’ve decided to show you where I’ve been the past couple of weeks…home.
