Jennifer Hudson Is The First New Judge For Season 13 Of American Idol


Jennifer Hudson has been confirmed as the first NEW Judge on Season 13 of American Idol.  Although the American Idol Alum did not win the competition. I do think it is a good idea to have her as a judge. I can’t lie I haven’t watched the show since her season so… This will definitely bring me back!

Check out her new single “Gone, Gone, Gone“…


Nas brought Lauryn Hill out on stage last night at Summer Jam 2012. Ms. Hill blessed the crowd with a few selections one of which included “If I Ruled The World“… Lauryn was in rare form, she looked healthy and her voice even sounds like its back to normal at this point. Many people are saying that Nas & Ms. Hill saved the concert due to controversy caused by Hot 97‘s DJ/Personality Rosenberg  and the comments that he made about Young Money‘s Nicki Minaj which led to Lil Wayne pulling the artist from the shows lineup while the concert was in progress….



Lauryn Hill tweets…

No disrespect to Nicki, but I need to clear up an inaccuracy. I was not scheduled to be a special guest on her set at Summer Jam, I was invited by Nas to perform with him. I don’t have details on exactly what transpired between the station and the artists, but I do support artists standing by their beliefs, and walking with integrity. We have to find a better way to commercially exploit music, while giving artists their proper respect. This cannot be done while taking their contributions for granted, or trying to control the scope of their growth and power through threats and fear tactics. We can do better than this, there is a better way, or else ‘we’ (the proverbial we) find ourselves in danger of being hypocrites!!!

Ms. Lauryn Hill

Take a look at Ms. Hill & Nas performance…


Hello again ladies! It’s me once again from and I’m here with another Fabulous Fashion Friday Post! Today’s trend is The Body Con Dress. This dress looks good on any curvy woman. The body con dress shows your curves, makes you look sexy and can be worn either dressed up or dressed down. Let’s take this simple pink bodycon dress from and dress it up and down.


Ok so you can dress down a bodycon dress by adding a cropped denim jacket and combat boots. The denim jacket will cover your arms and bring your shape in, and the black combat boots will give your just a splash of punk-rock chic. If the rocker edge isn’t your style, pair the dress with a floral printed cardigan and cream colored ballerina flats to give it a romantic soft chic look.


Ok so for a dressier look let’s remove the rocker boots and jean Jacket and add some black pumps and a clutch for a classy night out on the town. For a bolder look, try adding a different color pair of pumps. A nice yellow pair could add a Nicki Minaj feel to the pink dress and make you look bright, flirty and fun. If it gets to chilly, throw on a cardigan or a light jacket to keep your arms warm. Also add a pair of opaque tights if you don’t want too much leg to be shown.

Ok ladies so this completes this week’s fashion Friday post. Check me out over at for all things fashion and beauty and check in next Friday for another fabulous Friday post. Follow me on twitter at @vintageblondie
