Machel Montano and Bunji Garlin’s Buss Head tour has been causing a scene around the world. In London, just about two weeks ago, the energy of the dynamic Soca duo whose hatchet burial has subliminally promoted unity, could be felt all the way in the Caribbean. Behind the scenes in what Bunji has described as her instrumental involvement, his wife, Soca beauty, Fay Ann Lyons, has kept the business of things, in check. Last night, with much promotion by the team and anticipation among fans, the New York City leg of the tour took place to a sold out crowd at the Brooklyn Mirage. By all accounts, the event was EPIC.

The Buss Head event started at 3pm and by all social media accounts, the venue was filled to capacity. Merch on sale, fans had the opportunity to get their Buss Head hats and tees at the venue. The business of Buss Head is definitely thriving.

The show saw appearances by Platinum selling recording artist, Jamaica’s Kreesha Turner, Grenada’s Mr. Killa, St. Lucia’s, Teddyson John, Barbados’s King Bubba,

Fay Ann Lyons, Bunji Garlin, Machel Montano and in a surprise entrance, NYC rapper, Busta Rhymes. Of course, Busta turned it up, delivering his hit single, “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See” to kick it off. He went on to call out his Trini fans, screaming “Trinidad, Trinidad!”

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.
