Rihanna’s injuries “horrific” Chris Brown wanted by Bajans for an “ass-buss”

New details from Tmz.com, they report that according to law enforcement sources in LA that Rihanna’s injuries are “horrific” including  contusions and at least one bite mark on her arm.

There are further reports of a screaming match before the fateful car ride after Brown was reportedly caught chatting up another woman at the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Party.

Meanwhile back on The Rock (Barbados) Bajans are up in arms over the drama, recalling reports of Brown’s bad behaviour when the pair were here on holiday including the alleged Hilton Hotel room bust up and the alleged garbage can-into -the-Land Rover incident.

Chris Brown and Rihanna in Barbados

Rihanna has had a bit of drama quietly surrounding her for quite some time with reports from sources close to her Bajan posse describing her local liming (hanging out) crew as “wild” and “up for anything.” The same sources say they are unsurprised by the way things with Brown have apparently turned out given the girls reported predilection for bad-boy types and drama.

Hmmm… I guess Ri Ri ain’t no sweet bread but still as the immortal Glamour Girl Sue said “Talk, but doan touch me!”

Barbadians are very upset at the possibility that Chris Brown  may have  been violent with our Ri Ri and conversation buzzed like the low persistent drone of mosquitoes  at last night’s Barbados Model Search finals as the drama surrounding our biggest star Robyn Rihanna Fenty spread like a cane fire via Blackberrys, iphones and whispered comments in the darkened hall. 791125

As reported by the web site TMZ.com

“According to police, Brown and a woman whom cops refuse to identify were arguing inside a vehicle around 12:30 this morning when suddenly things allegedly turned violent.

Cops say they received a 911 call, and when they arrived they noticed the woman had visible injuries. We’re told she then identified Brown as her attacker. Cops say Brown had left the scene by the time police arrived.

Cops say they are looking to speak with Brown and may arrest him when they find him.”  the rest of TMZ’s reporting can be found here


Reports out of  Los Angeles state that Brown turned himself in to the LAPD, was charged with one count of felony criminal threats and subsequently released on $50,000 USD bail.

Reps for Ms Ri Ri have been tight lipped about the entire thing saying only “Rihanna is well”

Oh no! not our Ri Ri!!  Brown better watch out because Bajans real vex about the possibility of anyone harming our girl, I hope he isn’t planning a vacation anywhere near area code 246 in the future.

Oh O!

I have mad love for Mrs O, mad mad love, a lot of women do, and not just because she’s in the White House with her hottie-I-am-the-most-powerful-man-in-the-world hubby and her two bright and precocious daughters, I love Michelle because Michelle makes me feel that I don’t have to either win the lottery or marry Donald Trump and have him bankroll my wardrobe to look as stylish as she does.

First it was jcrew, this sunny yellow was so bright I couldn’t help smiling. Mandi Norwood, a blogger with Access Hollywood made much of the fact that she often wears yellow, writing of her inauguration outfit “As every fashionista knows, yellow can be a difficult color to wear” but here’s a little secret, did she mean every white fashionista? because the black fashionistas know yellow looks good on dark-skinned black folk and we’ve never had much difficulty wearing it.

Rewriting Twilight or how you just cannot make pudding and souse on Saturday with Tuesday’s chicken steppers.

I was all prepared to hate Twilight, it is unashamedly a teen movie and makes no apologies for it’s hormone laden IV directly into the veins of adolescent teen-aged girls. I didn’t hate the movie, it was a little bit of a guilty pleasure, a righteous girly romp that took me back to my teen years, I giggled at the absurdity and I was convinced that I had never acted so silly even when I was sixteen.  I do however stand firm in the knowledge that no self-respecting Caribbean teen was going to walk into a wet spooky wood having just discovered that her man was in fact a member of the genus Nosferatu but that affirmation has nothing to do with the movie. twilight_bigteaserposter

The problems I have with Twilight aren’t actually with the movie, the movie is beautifully filmed and there is even a baseball scene that just wows the photographer in me, Continue reading ‘Rewriting Twilight or how you just cannot make pudding and souse on Saturday with Tuesday’s chicken steppers.’
