Fay Ann Lyons’ name is often caught up in some bit of controversy or another, whether it’s on social media or otherwise. The carnival entertainer who killed it in the year 2009 when she became the first female to win both the International Power and Groovy Soca Monarch titles, has been classified by some as bossy and controlling, but to her husband, Bunji Garlin, her strength is what keeps him motivated.

In the hours leading up to this feature, Lyons-Alvarez became the most sought after Soca artist in Trinidad and Tobago as the local media scrambled to get a soundbite or two of her reaction to the scandal of Yvonne Clarke’s disqualification from the Miss Universe pageant- a title she had only two weeks earlier, attained.

The franchise holder for the local arm of Miss Universe, Jenny Douglas, had written to the young woman on Tuesday morning indicating that she had breached her contractual agreement and would no longer be heading to Las Vegas as the T&T representative. Instead, Martrecia Alleyne, the competition’s first runner up, would be representing T&T at the globally viewed competition. The country was up in arms over the news. Lyons-Alvarez called a press conference. She had stepped in to help Clarke as a sponsor- having agreed to purchase her airline tickets to head to Las Vegas in November. When she eventually met Clarke, Lyons-Alvarez and her team at MIME Limited, decided to assist the T&T representative as much as they could, having been told that sponsorship was not as forthcoming as hoped. From photoshoots, to clothing, public appearances, a hair appointment with world renowned hair stylist, Neal Farrinah (hairstylist to Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Monica, and other important areas of requirement as outlined by the international Miss Universe organization, Lyons-Alvarez and her team had jumped in to help. The effort would soon be in vain however, as Clarke’s position as the representative was revoked.

Fay Ann, on Tuesday, speaking at the press conference held at her Viking House office, in Mucurapo, Trinidad, said she had no interest at all in being a part of any Miss Universe organization. She said she had no previous affiliation with Clarke, despite allegations by Jenny Douglas that Lyons-Alvarez had been a sponsor for the past five months. Fay Ann roared loudly and made it clear on Tuesday afternoon that her name would not be dragged through the mud by Douglas, especially since, all she wanted to do was assist the Trinidad and Tobago delegate who had approached her for help.

Nicki released new music today.

It takes very little to spark interest on the Net. A few days ago, Cardi B’s pregnancy reveal sent news agencies globally, off the deep end. After that, Nicki Minaj paraded her sexy-self across the floor at the Los Angeles  Lakers vs. Houston Rockets game on Tuesday, leaving tongues dangling as she reemerged on the social scene. She’s been off the radar for a bit, laying low in anticipation of the release of her upcoming album. Before that however, the Trinidad and Tobago born rapper, released two new tracks today.

On Tuesday, Minaj pretty much channeled a dominatrix at the NBA game in LA, donning a black patent leather and fishnet ensemble, uniquely pulled together by a pair of spike-covered knife pumps from Balenciaga’s Spring 2018 collection. Minaj definitely scored points at the game for making a public appearance that would certainly be on everyone’s lips in the lead up to her double track release today. The singles, “Chun Li” and “Barbie Tingz,” will make up Minaj’s fourth full-length album. Her previously released album was 2014’s ‘The PinkPrint.’

Take a look at Nicki’s hot-gal ensemble and let us know whether you think she created the desired effect.

The Caribbean superstars came out in full force as Jamaica’s Carnival excitement climaxed on Sunday with road revelry quite similar to what’s experienced in Trinidad and Tobago and other parts of the world where carnival is a staple. Jamaican dancehall sensation, Shenseea however, kept the internet lit with videos and photos all giving the world a glimpse of the carnival euphoria, this time, on her island.

Shenseea was on fire yesterday, in Jamaica.

The dancehall beauty, who’s managed to steal the hearts of global audiences in less than five years, maintains her social media engagement like no other. That, we believe, is what may be the defining tool in this young artist’s powerful marketing and promotion strategy. In Jamaica yesterday, Shenseea partied like a true Caribbean fetter. She wore an amazing fuchsia feathered costume delivered by Xodus Carnival and rubbed shoulders with the likes of T&T’s Bunji Garlin and fellow Jamaican artist, Aidonia on the road.

Other Caribbean celebs like Aidonia and T&T’s Bunji Garlin were a part of the road revelry in Jamaica on Sunday.

A number of Trinidad and Tobago carnival thrills made their way over to JA this year, among them, JAM Nation- an event that draws thousands annually in T&T. Caesar’s Army was there again with their AMBush event as well. The Caribbean is undoubtedly proving to be the essence of global fun and excitement. From carnival revelry to cruises like Soca on the Seas that provide carnival entertainment and Caribbean cultural thrills on  board, there’s no denying that the Caribbean’s where it’s at!
