Come Backs and Send Offs

So, the night of the Grammy’s we spent with our usual group of friends, who are all musicians to have “family” dinner and support some of the other people we know who were performing on the Grammy’s on Sunday.
 First, let me just say best performances was the Tribute to Bob Marley (because I love the energy of Bruno Mars’ band) and of course, my white boy crush Justin JT Timberlake’s come back performance!!!! 

See the tall black guy back there on Bass, thats our good friend Adam Blackstone – husband to one of my homegirls as well. He is the Music Director who is literally taking EVERY gig in the business.

On backgrounds, closest black male to JT is Aaron Camper, used to sing with Gospel Artist Tye Tribbett, now performing with JT and Chris Brown and some others and an Artist in his own right.

See this guy on horns, Dontae Winslow – we went to the same high school, just different times and have been around the same people for a good while. Awesome trumpeter I might add. His wife is an AMAZING singer.

And I can’t lie – THEY WERE AWESOME!  

Other folk we knew perfoming on Sunday: my good buddy and fellow Bishop’s Kid there in the center, PJ Morton, member of Maroon 5.
It warms my heart seeing folk I know doing BIG things!
Keep up the GREAT work.
Now to this Red Carpet for just a bit:
Well, one this dress code issued was clearly a publicity stunt that would have us peeled to the T.V. to see who would break the rules – it failed. Ratings were still down.
I remember seeing a lot of Green, Black, White and Red on the Red Carpet.
Green happens to be my favorite color so every green dress I was drooling over…

except one. 

C’mon Florence – Givenchy or not – you absolutely look like a character from The Land Before Time.
Also in the Worst Category –
I do not know why Ashanti being such a short girl would wear so much fabric on her bottom. The dress itself just looks a mess on her… and sadly, I give worst dressed to Faith Hill’s teeth. Poor thing couldn’t get invisiline’s and she looked like it hurt to smile when I watched her on the Red Carpet. She tried to smile for one shot and gave up and then tried to just close her mouth over those things… hopefully they come off soon because they look they are working in the opposite direction. Spaces galore.
Now BEST Dressed:
This bad chick named Kelly Rowland, two weeks in a row has stunted on people!
She looks amazing!
Rihanna’s subtly sheer number was in good taste because usually I hate what she wears to the Grammy’s but this one was a great choice.
And I just have to mention the men’s fashion – first John Mayer, I love that look and I love the two of them together. Katy also looked amazing…
And Ellen thought so too – heck we were all thinking it. She can just get away with doing that… LOL
She even switched things up and went for a shorter number post Grammy’s – looks like its by the same designer with the applique’s on top. I guess if John stayed in his Tux all night, she can look like she is dressed to go to the White House versus After Parties.
Now, Katy take care of my boo- you know don’t forget he wanted me first, ok?
Anywho – the Men of the Evening.
Kudos for different looks and pulling them off quite nicely.
She may not be on your radar, but we ALL felt like Amber Rose was pregnant for a REALLY long time. I mean almost seemed like she was pregnant at last years Grammy’s. But what I can’t take from her is that she does look absolutly beautiful pregnant. Just wish she had better taste in who to procreate with.
Award For: I try to hard even if I don’t have to – goes to J.Lo
Ma’am. You look great, but stop trying so hard.
I have seen her up close and personal and she looks so flawless it does kind of make you pause. And as flawless as her legs are – she really didn’t have to even go there.
Guess she is trying to prove a little something to the latest boy toy.
(one day she will convince me she is a singer).
Most true to self: Estelle and Janelle Monae
Its that look you see and say “only her”

And now to the Send OFFS!

Do you watch the Bachelor?
THANK MY LUCKY STARS, Sean has finally seen the light!
That girl Tierra was working my nerves ALL season long.
Last night she went from this with Sean-

To this – scary meltdown lady!
Screaming at the women in the house saying stuff like “I HAVE A SPARKLE!” and “I CAN’T CONTROL MY EYEBROW!”
Ma’am have a seat!
and in true hilarious form, this dramatic chicks eyebrow has a Twitter account that has over 17,000 followers?! WHY!? LOL
Sean saw the aftermath and sent her home packing with a quickness – funny thing is the other girls had no idea that he even sent her home. Awww so close Miss “I can get any guy to marry me!” Not after they watch this show.
Rumor has it that Sean ends up with this quiet lovely young lady named Catherine.
Guess we shall soon see.

    Great grammy's re cap. I don't watch them. Too long. So it's nice to read about it in blogs. Poor Faith with her braces! Katy Perry's dress is awful. So is Ashanti's. Do they just have bad taste or bad stylists? So cool that you know some of the performers.

    I agree about J.Lo and Kelly two best dressed of the night! J.Lo does seem like she was trying to prove something but she is flawless so just let it be! Amber Rose has been pregnant for a LONG time…LOL!!! I know she is very pregnant, but I hated the dress I think she could've done better! She shouldve had on something long and flowy…or a fitted dress that looked better (just my opinion)! LOL! She is so pretty but the dress didnt work for me. The men of the night did a good job!! Oh and I loved Katy Perry's dress and Rihanna's too!!!

    Hi Jasmine!

    JT's performance solidified that the hubby and I will definitely be checking him out when he tours. And after reading your post and thinking about it a bit, you're right – JLO did THE most when she really didn't have to. Angelina Jolie already did that.
