Another company that’s kickin ass: Target. They have the likes of many high fashion labels already gracing their inexpensive store’s racks. Now they are introducing Zac Posen in the mix. Because Target likes to keep everything top secret and most likely thinks that their fierce competitors, i.e. Wal-Mart, will steal it, there aren’t many details about the price point our style of the line (even though Wal-Mart could more than likely steal it because they rule the world). However, we do know the line will be available April 25-30. Yayy for Target!

Fat Raps- Chip the Ripper(ft. Curren$y & Big Sean)
I love me some Amber Rose, yet again another one of my girl crushes. And obviously the city of Atlanta has a crush on her too. She made her first Atlanta appearance and club promoters and groupies alike were clawing to get a piece of her. People were paying up to $50 to see her. And supposedly her appearance fee is 20-30 grand. Wow. For an ex-stripper turned Kanye’s girlfriend from south Philly, she’s not doing too bad. One Atlanta Dj, however, was kind of disturbed of how people were reacting to her appearance:
"3 promoters in Atlanta paid an ex-stripper who now dates a extra sensitive rapper to host a party. And you dummies paid extra money to party with her,stupid! We make strippers more important than teachers in our society. This girl was unknown to us and now shes a paid celeb. I can understand athletes and rappers, but a stripper who dates a rapper…and y’all wonder why the club scene in Atlanta is wack nowadays. We idolize the wrong sh*t. I know some are gonna think I’m wack but come on…they paid a stripper who didn’t strip."
Lol he’s mad.

The next video Mr. Songz will be releasing is “Yo Side of the Bed.” I don’t know about you, but that’s one of my favorite songs on his CD. And guess whose the lucky bitch playing his boo thang he’s missing? Miss Keri baby. There are so many reasons why I would love to hate her right now. Click here for footage from the shooting of the video.
Now, I love Trey Songz as much as the next sexually frustrated girl, but what the hell is going on with his hair?? This was a picture taken at one of his million birthday parties, specifically 501 Lounge in Jersey. He is truly trippin. Did anyone go to Love in D.C. for his bday bash? (I know Mr. Crushed Pearls himself was there) Did you see this debauchery of a hairstyle? Just wondering.

Robin Thicke collaborated with Nicki Minaj for a new track titled “Shakin It For Daddy.” Supposedly it was Jay Z’s idea to get her on the track.
It was Jay’s idea,” Thicke said about how Nicki Minaj came to be on “Shakin’ It 4 Daddy.” “We were in the studio, and I played him the whole album. He was like, ‘You should get Nicki Minaj on that. She’s got that voice. She’s got that swag.’ So I leaned over and was like, ‘Somebody get Nicki Minaj on the phone! Jay-Z said so!’ Next thing you know, we called Nicki. She was excited. But once we told her it was Jay-Z’s idea to get her on the track, she started screaming on the phone. She was all excited. She’s a super, super talent. I can’t wait to do a video with Nicki. There’s a power in her. It’s not just that she’s sexy and that’s the only way she can get you to like her. She’s got charm — not just sex. Some women may use sex to get what they want; others have charm. She’s got charm. – MTV“Click her to listen and download. What yall think?
Nicki Minaj definitely jocked Gaga’s style in this photo shoot for Right On! Magazine. I dig Nicki and like her music, but what happened to the Barbie movement? No offense but her stylist needs to get a little more creative with the outfit choices. Anyways the issue hits stands January 2010.
Now I hear a lot of new artists daily(literally new artist are like new tweets, popping up all the time) But these young boys really have what it takes to make it. Take a listen to the new masterpiece from the supercrew!
Look here man something has got to shake, this is getting rediculous. Any time we as the audience really start backing an artist they are senselessly put behind bars. Now in all honesty boosie was wrong for what he did, HOWEVER it seems that the law will use any small thing to bring down someone the people love. Keep your head up boosie, we ovr here at Crushed Pearls support you!

On November 30, Diddy will be on Home Shopping Network promoting his fragrances. At 11 p.m. he will be attempting to sell $400,000 of his Unforgivable and I am King. We will officially find out if Diddy really does have as much power as I think he does because if he sells $400,000 of fragrances on TV, meaning people cannot smell them, wow.
He won’t be doing the corny, spray it on models and tell us how good it smells. Instead he’s going to be interviewed in a talk show format with a built set. HSN hopes Diddy will bring in a whole new audience. If I’m not still drunk and stuffed from Thanksgiving and not half dead from all the traveling I’ll have to do, maybe I’ll watch. Diddy is always entertainment.
Guccio Gucci and Alessandro Gucci, grandsons of Gucci who founded the house 90 years ago, are starting their own handbag line called To Be G. The two brothers definitely have the creative flow in their blood, as well as the blessing of the Gucci name, but don’t plan on using said blessing. They want to make their own mark in the fashion world. Guccio, the creative force of To Be G stated, “we are not doing this because our name is Gucci, nor do we want to replicate what the Gucci brand is doing. We have our own vision.”
The line is suppose to drop next spring which will consist of “a collection of classic European designs which feature a signature lily motif on every piece across patent, cracked, woven and butter-soft leathers,” according to myfashionlife.com. I honestly hate the name “To Be G” but I understand where they are going with not trying to use their grandfather’s name. Excited to see what the entire line looks like and what the prices are. I wonder if their line is dropping the same time as the Gucci movie comes out? Any publicity is good publicity...

Rihanna and Justin Timberlake made a bonus song for her album Rated R called “Hole In My Head.” (pause) Rihanna, enough. We get it. You’re depressed. Press on. Sike the song does have an upbeat tempo and isn't too bad but she does admit “I got a couple screws loose.” Oh C Breezy, what have you done to the poor child? Click here to download and listen.
H&M is getting ready for the holidays by launching their Holiday 2009 ad campaign featuring models Sasha Pivovarova, Missy Rayder, Malgosia Bela, Ben Hill and Ryan Thomas, as well as little kids. I’m loving H&M these days, first Jimmy Choo, now great holiday attire for me to splurge on. They’re kickin’ ass.

Alexander Wangs football inspired shoes and bags have popped up on the Internet, and I’ll say, football never looked so good (for women at least). His spring 2010 runway show had mad shoulder pads, lace up booties, leather football inspired bags, the whole football appeal. Here are pictures of some of the accessories. My favorite are the brown lace up/zipper heels.
