The songstress appears on the cover of the March/April issue of Kontrol Magazine and dishes on the epiphany that lead to her taking control of her career.
“My weakest moment in my musical career came when I almost decided to leave the industry completely because I didn’t know that I could say no and do things on my own,” said Chrisette. “I relied on the ‘experts’ to tell me what I needed and I thought maybe I wasn’t strong enough to say no.”
Just when you thought true artistry was a thing of the past, in steps Texasjazz pianistRobert Glasper. You have to hear him to get the jist of what I’m saying. Nevertheless, on this particular night Mr. Glasper brings together his band the Robert Glasper Experiment, with guest vocalists Chrisette Michele, Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def and Bilal to perform some new tracks off of his new album Black Radio. I haven’t heard it yet, but a friend of mine tells me it is phenomenal from beginning to end!!!
In the meantime check out his performance with the lovely Chrisette Michele, this is “Ah Yeah” LUV!!!
Hello again to all my Chunky Chickz out there in Chunky Chickz World, Its Brielle again hailing from the fabulous world of Nominusplus.com and I’m here giving you yet another Fashion Friday segment. Hopefully last week’s introductory segment had you running to the stores to find your own floppy hat. I gushed recently at this cranberry colored floppy hat at Target and I couldn’t bear leaving the store without it.But today’s Fashion Friday trend hails from the fabulous motherland of Africa and has been sweeping the pages of magazines and style blogs this fall and winter season.
Ladies I present to you: The Head Wrap. You may have seen this eclectic style graced upon the heads of Solange, Chrisette Michelle, Erykah Badu and the always fabulous Miss June Ambrose. So this Winter I dare you to be different and try this funky new look. Even I have fallen under fabulous spell of the head wrap, and have been wearing it religiously on rainy days; lazy days and days where I just feel like standing out. The head wrap is a great way to add some flair to any outfit, and a quick way of getting out the door on those days where you roll out of bed and realize you have 20 mins to rush to work and/or school.
The Head Wrap Swag on Yours Truly
Wanna try this look out? Here’s two how to videos on How to wrap it up this winter. The first is a more dramatic turban, while the other is a bit more conservative.
