Kees Cuts Dreads. Sure Does Look Like Common Now. Don’t You Agree?

Published

Kees has thrilled audiences and the ladies have lapped him up for years as he paraded across stages, with his dreadlocks.

Well, we’re guessing dreadlocks are out now. Sorry Rastas. Kees Dieffenthaller- the man many women could admit to lusting over as he paraded on stages in and out of T&T Carnival, bare chested and oozing of sex appeal, has flown his dreadlocks, opting for a more sophisticated, crisp cut that has definitely knocked off a couple years.

The ‘Wotless’ singer smiled heartily during a LIVE Instagram one on one with fans earlier today, as he told them of plans to deliver more music soon. He sang a bit of a new release and even thanked his barber for the new look.

Kees Dieffenthaller now bears a striking resemblance to Hip Hop artist, Common.

Kees remains one of Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean’s most versatile performers, delivering a cadre of songs that blend pop, reggae and soca to create timeless music. His new look has sparked a lot of reactionary posts on social media, many assessing him closely, saying he looks quite a bit like Hip Hop artist, Common. What do you think? Are you loving the new look or not so much? Leave your comment below. We’d love to hear your thoughts.

Rihanna Does Christmas in Barbados But The Worst Thing Happened.

Published

Rihanna gets the flu in Barbados.

There’s nothing like a Caribbean Christmas. That’s why one of the world’s biggest celebs chose her homeland of Barbados to enjoy the season. Rihanna’s been hard at work all year long so it was only fitting that some R&R at Christmas be accompanied by the warmth of her family and friends back at home. Boy oh boy, the blessing she is to Barbados, if only for tourism. Thing is, while she was excited to be with her mom and the rest of the gang, the singer was struck by the worst luck ever.

No, Rihanna was not robbed. She did not get food poisoning either. Unfortunately, she got the dreaded flu. Imagine leaving the wintery weather in the US only to be struck with the flu bug in the tropics. That sucks! She still managed to get all dressed up in a red sheer gown for a special night it seemed though.

Rihanna has unleashed 14 new lipstick shades.

Rihanna’s been working hard over the past few months. Her FENTY Beauty Makeup line has racked up millions in sales and earlier today, the brand unleashed 14 new shades of lipstick in Rihanna’s Mademoiselle lipstick line. The beauty collection only had two lip products prior to this unveiling- a neutral gloss and a bright red liquid lipstick.

The Mademoiselle collection boasts 14 shades of bold matte lip hues in shades that range from lavender to dark brown and from baby blue to navy. On Twitter, a message issued to fans suggested that everyone give the #trophywife shade a try.  “We got the perfect camera effect for y’all to get into that highlight,” the tweet said. It was explained that those wishing to try it out simply had to add the effect to their Facebook camera on their mobile devices and take a selfie in the Fenty frame. A yellow toned flash of highlight would automatically be added to get the highlight, the brand’s social media rep said.

Rihanna’s Mama Said NO to Makeup in Her Teens. Bajan Superstar Does Not Promote Perfection.

Published

Caribbean mothers aren’t to be messed with. Badgirl Ri Ri knows this oh too well, so when asked by international media recently about her teenage years on the beautiful island of Barbados, she immediately said her mother never allowed her to mess with Makeup as a youth. “Lipstick in Barbados? Not unless I was a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding,”she said. Rih said her mother was not flexible on the topic of her teenage daughter wearing makeup, even though she worked behind a cosmetics counter in Barbados.

Rihanna’s FENTY Beauty was launched in September and hasn’t had a bad day since. She admits that she has an issue when it comes to promoting perfection though, explaining that she believes “everyone is beautiful in their own way.”

Rihanna’s makeup line consists of some 40 shades of velvety matte foundations, which cater to women of all skin tones. She personally loves the Killawatt highlighter , she revealed, saying that the product’s versatility attracts her. “I put it on my eyes, cheeks, and body. It goes on smooth, and the texture is superfine, almost like liquid—plus it’s extremely high-shine. There’s a ton of different colors,” she said.

The “Love on the Brain” singer told InStyle magazine that makeup is therapeutic for her. “Once I start my glam—the makeup, the hair—I’m good. I’ll play music, find the good light in the bathroom, and just have a great time. That’s what gets me motivated,”she said. Rihanna also had some advice for young girls who may be struggling with their identities :

The biggest mistake you can make is to compare yourself with someone else. I hate the pressure that’s being put on us by social media. Young girls don’t know which way to go; they’re still figuring themselves out. And what we’re teaching them through social media is this idea that you have to be perfect. I just reject that at every cost. I only know how to be me, and people thrive when they’re who they’re meant to be. I can only try my best to encourage girls and women to respect their uniqueness and be 100 percent true to themselves. – Rihanna
