NYC December 2011
Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, happy Kwanzaa to you. Thank - you for visiting my blog during the busy holidays season. I hope you will take the time to chill. Holiday preparation can be exhausting both physically and mentally. My previous blog was about "Smiling" as a way to self heal our souls and improve our own lives whatever the hardship or the condition of the moment. Today is a time for cheers; spending time with love ones a great time for soul food and hugs. In short the most simple things in life are free and during the holidays I remember this when I get on the phone and call all my close friends and family around the world. I hope and wish you a great one to you and yours. If you would like to receive any of these song I uploaded bellow; Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org let me know what song you like and I will email them to you. With all my love.
D-blog certified 2011 best
As the year come to an end I compiled a list of best of 2011. Fell free to add in a comment anyone you may think I have overlooked for their achievement this year. My wish for 2012 is more understanding so to prevent conflict in our inner circles and to resolve any remaining wars in the world. The hopeful always win and the hopeless will always benefit from hope. Djamee
It's Friday, and on D-Blog this means that I have a new selection of the latest must have looks ready to ship today at my store on Styleowner. Make sure to check the Fashion Friday section. I also suggest you use the holiday season to show and bring the best of yourself wherever you go; whatever you do. This will help you reconnect with yourself and the people you may have lost touch with during the year. A simple makeover might be just the right trick needed to accomplish that. You will love yourself more and you will feel better as a result. This is called dress the part; dress for success. When you look the part, this bring your all being to another level of vibration.
I found a pictures of myself that I took the day of my birthday 2 years ago. I wanted to send a nice picture of myself to my parents who live in Gabon back in Africa. So I asked my friend Stylist Andrew Felton to come and make some magic happen by getting rid of the athletic urban clothes. He pulled a cream GUCCI suit with thin 2 tone stripes and fitted pants; a fitted Versace shirt and a hand made in Italy 2 tone slik tie. To finish the look or start it he brought me a pair of Prada black leather moccasin. He was going for the Spring Summer Italian classic look; I was born in late April.

Lady Gaga takes us into the realm of her mind. A trip that include women nurse's ass and Quantum Physics in no order. I encourage you to watch the video... Again on Staged.
Uniqlo made to be classy
Uniqlo - Winter 2011 / 2012
I love this European look from Uniqlo's 2011/2012 Winter collection. I am growing into this expensive but affordable look this winter. I want to keep warm so the Japan Heattech heat generating technology with their long sleeve shirts and johns will help me look sophisticated yet I will stay warm in style. I will update my store with more looks that picked my eye later on today. -DR
Nobody looks like that at 53 and is really upset.
Madonna, may claim to be "Very upset," about the leak on the internet of her forthcoming song "Give Me All Your Love," But believing that she has nothing to do with it (The leak), is a hard candy to swallow. No one, not even a die hard fan can't help but think this is rather a compliment Madame at your age to have your music floating on the world wide web. Huhh? What*@%$????. Hargh!!! Oh non... Mon Dieu" lol "Sacre Bleu"[ lmao] In my French accent " FUCK! I kill you"...Hahah and Miss Ciconne you are a master at manipulating the media.
Well, hold yout fire. I love Madonna; I always did. Once upon a time I heard "Holiday" (Celebrate) her break trough funky song. "Holiday," was all the rage on the radio in the early/mid 80's and for some stereotypical reasons I assumed the singer was black. To be fair about my ignorance; at the time most of us did, and as a viral video would catch fire today on Youtube; Maddona's, "Holiday" started playing all over the world and into the clubs and on the FM. Simultaneously a movie co-starring her "Seeking Desperately Susan," hit the theater. This was an instant blockbuster it had been filmed prior to Madonna's new found fame and at the time she got paid a mere $4000 the equivalent of $7000 today. A star was born and thus I grew up loving Madge.

Rihanna is one of today's stars inspired by Madonna
In 1994, I tried desesperately to get in the Roseland, where Madonna, was performing. No luck then. In early 2000, I designed a hat for her, I delivered it backstage at the Roseland. At the time I had a little store front in The village within"Tattoo Seen" selling hats; belt buckles with names and scarves with rhinestones. I had made hats for Prince's website so I thought let me design something for her too. But this is only in 2008 that my dream came true. I got to see the Queen of Pop up close and personal, at her intimate concert she was throwing for her fans kicking off her for Hard Candies tour for her last studio album "Candy Shop," with former label Time Warner.
Madonna is a true star! I will never forget how stunning she was. Such a pro; focused and shining trough. Madonna, has mastered the art of entrance. So far in her career she has made a point to collaborate with anyone in the moment. Looking at her music and videos is like looking at the history of music since the mid 80's. I remember Timberlake; Pharell; performing with her with a strong of break dancers coming out of a train on stage. #Insider Madonna is currently dating a French Break dancer. She has been famous and center stage for over 25 years. Married twice;infamously with Sean penn, she has children from different parts of the world and a teen daughter designer!. She was booed often when her "Sex" book was published and was seen as a new low in pop culture; mainly by critics who did not even take the time to read it. The book is a collector item now. She survived the storm; actually it made her an even bigger star. She is vindicated by new comer like Lady Gaga and Rihanna who have both been influenced by her either they acknowledge it or not. Long are gone the day Britney Spears was prematurately crown the new Princess of pop. To answer that Madonna, gave Britney the "kiss of Death," live at the VMA. Seriously tough, Madonna has proved to be a master of survival for her relevance for both her image and music trough the last 2 decades. How she does it? She had to survive on the streets of NYC when she first arrived from Michigan Detroit. Later she flew to Paris and became a back up dancer for Patrick Hernandez. She found herself on TV, for the first time for his Disco hit "Born to be Alive." As a dancer she follows a strict discipline and stay in great shape by eating healthy and marrying and now dating younger guys. Madonna, is Street wise and in her movie "In Bed With Madonna," one gets a chance to see what it takes to be her touring the world. She kissed girls long before katy Perry; dated her dancers long before J-Lo. She is the epitome of Diva in show biz today with a majority of gay fans. Lady Gaga is the direct product of Madonna; for better or worse (depending who you ask). She would arrive at events and the paparazzi would wait religiously. Once she arrived they would scream "Madonna!! over here, over here!" and if she did not stop for pictures she would be called a whore. I always thought this was sexist because Prince would not stop for pictures either and no one called him a whore. #Fact Michael Jackson (R.I.P), Prince, and Madonna all became famous at the same time and age. Madonna had a song produced by Prince in her first album. This was probably facilitated by the fact that they were label mates. Still she hooked up with Michael Jackson for a very well documented entrance to the Oscars. Ironically MJ and Prince always competed; or at least the media made it look that way. Madonna, staying power has been her abilitiy to live in the present and to be able to interpret the new trends with her new look(s) and her music. A mogul, Madonna has a real estate empire a music catalog, fashion holdings trough her daughter Lourdes'clothing line Material Girls a line of Eyewear in collaboration with her friends Dolce & Gabbana, A $130 Millon deal with Live Nation. This is her first album with Live Nation who surprisingly paid more Lil Wayne, Jay Z and 50 Cent, to follow suit. Under Time Warner she even was given her own label Maverick in a multi million deal over $10 million; that was a record then. Madonna true love is acting even though she never was recognized as a major force in that industry. she notoriously fought for the lead role for Evita, to portray the Argentina, legend; she got it and nailed it. Today she is also a movie director. "She has penned a "beautiful ballad" for her movie "W.E."The picture, Madonna's second feature film as director, follows the life of Wallis Simpson, the American divorcee whose relationship with King Edward VIII sparked a constitutional crisis in Britain and led to his abdication.The film, which had its world premiere at the Venice film festival, hits U.S. theaters in December and British cinemas in January."[quote from Reuters article] 2012 will be Madonna year. She has made million people around the world happy with her music ;videos and films. She deserves it.
Welcome back Queen of Pop and for the memories bellow arguably the song from Patrick Hernandez, that made it all possible for you - DR
patrick hernandez born to be alive
Lady Gaga GMA concert Central Park
So how is this possible? How can the Born This Way superstar have sold so much?
By Winning in Trending! Lady Gaga is #1 in anything social media: Over 10 million followers on Twitter; 32 million fans on Facebook; a pulverizing 1 million downloads in a record 5 days this past week; a #1 spot on the Forbes 100 Most Influential entertainers list; ahead of Oprah!
Early this year I met with Lady Gaga's video producer from Factory Films to collect a check in payment for services by our model for Born This Way video. The video had not been released yet and there I was, at the loading dock at Madison Square Garden, in a scene out of a movie; looking at that check with the ink on it not even dry. The next minute, I went to a Kinko's nearby to make a color copy of it; later I had it framed. Sometimes you can feel you are witnessing and observing history as it unfolds before your eyes. I knew this was one of this defining moment in time. I could feel the excitement and ever growing energy Lady Gaga, was sending to the Universe in particular to her fans.
Now each day, I look at the numbers on that check. With today's breaking record numbers of sales for her new album Born This Way; without sounding to cliche and with confidence I can say: Men lie, women lie, but Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson's numbers don't."
The King Of pop wanted to have Lady Gaga perform at his This Is It tour. He thought she was "Extremely talented!"
Michael Jackson, has a smile this morning looking from beyond and above on us as his business savvy continues to be proved almost 2 years after he took his place in paradise with the brightest stars to ever walk on earth. LADY GAGA is #1 and he had predicted it. Before Michael Jackson passing he had re-hired the team who helped him with the then secret negotiation for the Beatles catalog aquisition. The same business partners helped him aquire Lady Gaga's and Justin Bieber's catalogs among others.
Happy 18 birthday Steven Vega June 2nd, your brother LUKE, is a talented MC! I just found an MP4, files of Fireworks featuring Drake, in my crate this morning. I thought you would be happy that I shared it on D-Blog, on your Special day so I made an MP3, file for it and everyone can check it out bellow.
Talking of great new MC's I have been telling you about Young Rahda, since he started recording in 2005. Today I am posting Superfly, a song he wrote and made the beat for in 2009. Young Rahda, has been making surprise performances at the weekly Thursday, open mic hosted by Ford, at 9 Blecker St. YR, is also the subject of a secret TV, pilot in production in addition to modeling for European magazines. Y Rahda's mixtape will be released this Summer, and is co produced by FORD4D, with whom he has recorded more than 50 songs this past 2 months.
Observation: At the time of his untimely death Michael Jackson, in a 50% joint ventures with Sony"ATV" owned Lady Gaga's publishing catalog. When the "The NewYork Times," or "The Post," used to claim that Michael Jackson was "Broke,"it was a FABRICATED lie planted to the media by MJ's adversaries to undermine MJ's affairs and ruin his reputation.
A response to Forbes article (Jan. 2011) article:“Michael Jackson: Secret Business Genius?” Michael’s debt to the Bank of America was not actually a debt at all, but a business loan made for a big purchase, the profit of which would go to the bank to repay the loan itself!"
