Ga Ga: G-Star Raw’s Runway Show With Benicio Del Toro And Wendell Lissimore

Blindie was front and center at G-Star Raw's Fall/Winter 2009 runway show on Tuesday at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom along with Star Trek's Zoe Saldana, 90210's Shenae Grimes, and Make Me A Supermodel's Tyson Beckford. We were pleasantly surprised to see Ga Ga-worthy model Wendell Lissimore walk the runway and cheered with everyone when G-star's new "Icon" Benicio Del Toro came out to read Joy Division's "Candidate" before the finale. The show began with black and white formal attire reminiscent of the 1930s and 40s--we even spied a women's variation of a bowler hat. The bygone era then seamlessly gave way to G-Star's quintessential military stylings--early aviator and sailor inspired ensembles adorned with dramatic collars, and straps and buckles that would make Edward Scissorhands proud. Two live pianists played a dramatic classical score throughout that evoked the beauty and gravity of both the silent film era and the future. Blindie is ga ga for G-Star Raw and we are making it our new religion!

Tyler Perry Writes Movie For Jennifer Hudson: ‘It’d be Really Cathartic For Her’

Jennifer Hudson's resilience and strength through her family murder tragedy has inspired art--at least in the form of an upcoming Tyler Perry movie. "I just wrote a movie for her that I'm really excited about," the 39-year-old media mogul told People magazine at the premiere of Madea Goes to Jail. "I'm hoping she'll be able to do it." "Looking and talking to [Jennifer], there's sadness in her eyes, but my thoughts and prayers are always with her," Perry added. "That's one of the reasons why I want her to do this role, because I think it'd be really cathartic for her to take it on and work through some things." Of the prospective project, Perry says, "[Jennifer] says that she's been wanting to work with me for a a very long time and I definitely want to work with her. We just have to find the right time."

Color on the Cover: Rihanna’s Domestic Violence Drama with Chris Brown on People Mag

rihanna-people-magazine-cover-chris-brown "Rihanna's Nightmare" is the tag line to a haunting image of the R&B/Pop singer on the cover of People magazine's latest issue. The tabloid of record takes readers inside the "arguments, jealousy and hotel-room trashing" between Rihanna and Chris Brown that "led to the violence"! While Star magazine wins the sensation headline contest ("I Still Love Him!"), Blindie can't help but to believe People's credibility on the leak-proof case! rihanna-star-i-still-love-himrihanna-us-weekly-cover

Color on the Cover: Kanye West’s Quote-Driven Interview in Details

kanye-west-details-magazine-cover Producer turned rapper turned fashion designer turned (insert what's to come) Kanye West is covering the March 2009 issue of men's style magazine Details--and as always, he's not holding his tongue. Here's some of Blindie's favorite quotes from Mr. West: "Put this in the magazine: There's nothing more to be said about music. I'm the f--king end-all, be-all of music.” "People ask me a lot about my drive. I think it comes from, like, having a sexual addiction at a really young age. Look at the drive that people have to get sex—to dress like this and get a haircut and be in the club in the freezing cold at 3 a.m., the places they go to pick up a girl. If you can focus the energy into something valuable, put that into work ethic..." "Oh my God, I'm one of the greatest rappers in the world. I'll get on a track and completely ee-nihilate that track, I'll eat it and rip it in half. I wouldn't have to think of it.” "I have, like, nuclear power, like a superhero, like Cyclops when he puts his glasses on."

ObamaNation: New York Post Likens President Obama to Chimpanzee in Cartoon

obama-chimp-cartoon-ny-post Politically-incorrect new ragThe New York Post is adamantly standing behind a cartoon that compares President Barack Obama to the violent chimpanzee that was shot dead by police after mauling a woman on Tuesday. The cartoon, which was featured in Wednesday's paper by Sean Delonas, shows two officers standing over the a dead chimp with bullet holes in his body. One of the officers says, "They'll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill." Being that African Americans have long been ridiculed and compared to monkeys, Blindie finds the cartoon completely insensitive.
