Rest In Peace Whitney Houston. The world is mourning the loss of an amazing voice. Whitney Houston in her prime was unstoppable! She was beautiful, graceful, stylish and had one of the best voices in music history.

“It’s not even her birthday.” But it is. Rihanna celebrated her 24th birthday yesterday in a big way by releasing her new single, “Birthday Cake” with former boyfriend Chris Brown on the track. Is she stirring the pot by adding the bad boy Chris Brown on her single? Regardless of the critics who disagree with her decision to add Chris Brown, they can agree that Rihanna is always decked out in the latest threads.
If Rihanna was a Motel girl, I’m sure she would wear a bodycon dress with tons of colour.
And whilst this is going on in Hollywood, Couture Week started in New York on the 17th February,
L-U-V! Madonna! Her amazing Superbowl half-time performance was just the tip of the iceberg. Madonna announced a new album, “MDNA,” and the Material Girl has a world tour to accompany it. She has just posted dates for a six-month jaunt through the Middle East, Europe and North America.
Nicki Minaj has the Internet buzzing. With her new video, ‘Stupid Hoe’ breaking VEVO record for online views, plus joining Madonna at the Superbowl halftime show, she is proving that she is the new Hip-Hop princess.
Her style is so Motel Rocks. She loves to push the limit with her crazy hair and colorful body-con dresses. You might not be able to rock her hairstyles but with Motel, you can certainly rock her style.
