High, positive energy to deliver the very best he can in the year ahead. That’s what’s on the agenda for the artiste formerly known as Menace. Now under the alias, M1, the entertainer who has given the world songs like, ‘Tizick’,’Naughty’ and ‘Action’, celebrates another year of life today and as one of the most easy going entertainers who also happens to be very consistent in the Soca game, we wanted to have a quick chat with the Sangre Grande native about his ups and downs in the biz. You’ll never guess what he revealed.

M1 is working on a brand new album. He says he plans on releasing it mid-2018. As it stands, the name of the album will be ‘New Chapter, New Character’, but he admits that he’s still playing around with the title. “There’ll be some new songs on it as well as songs that people would be familiar with,” he explained, adding that one of the first songs he believes will capture the attention of the masses heading into C2K18 in Trinidad and Tobago, is a track produced by Chain Links production, called,”Wining Ruler.” M1 told us the production unit has been at his side for a long time, having produced some of his major tracks over the years. “I do a release from them, every year, so this is my first release with them and that’s my main contribution, from my team.”

The journey to this point in his music career has not been easy, he admits. He says there’ve been challenges, but to him, one of the biggest battles is ensuring that he’s consistent. “The main challenge is to keep consistent – keep coming with the material and holding my head high really, because some people could really bring you down in the industry. There are those who support you, but then there are those who really don’t want to see you make it,” he said. M1 added that the people refers to come from both within his personal life and outside, in the music industry. Amid it all though, M1 says his focus remains positively set on his music, ensuring that his styles are current and enjoyable.

“I really love this. Most of the time when I get that doubting vibes, I tend to push myself a little more.” –  M1

Rihanna with her cousin who became a victim to gun violence on Boxing Day in Barbados.

Gun violence and the effectiveness of Caribbean policing may be making the international spotlight, this on the heels of the murder of 21-year-old Tavon Kaiseen Alleyne, Barbadian superstar, Rihana’s cousin. The young man was shot and killed on Boxing Night in Barbados while walking through a track near his home. He had been shot multiple times.

Rihanna who had been home for the holidays, expressed grief via her social media pages, writing:

“RIP cousin… can’t believe it was just last night that I held you in my arms! Never thought that would be the last time I felt the warmth in your body!!! Love you always man.”

Back in February, the young man had cited the internationally acclaimed singer as his source of happiness. He had posted a message beneath a photo of them together, in celebration of Rihanna’s 29th birthday. “Your presence in my life is a source of joy and happiness,” he wrote.

Police are now on the hunt for the killer. Rihanna has since called for gun violence to cease.

Rihanna Does Christmas in Barbados But The Worst Thing Happened.

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.
