Archived: You’ll Never Guess What Patsy Pulled Off! She’s Definitely A Big Girl Now!



From Nadia Batson to Blaxx, Kernal Roberts and Zan, Soca hottie, Patrice Roberts entertained fans and friends on Sunday evening on board the less heard of Ocean Pelican in what was her first official birthday bash. The Soca mom who turned 31 on April 11th had explained that over the years, she’d made performing her first priority and had never before, been able to celebrate as she would have a chance to on this special sailing.

Though delayed due to traffic en route to the Anchorage, Chaguaramas dock, the ride turned out to be the perfect end to the weekend for most who’d attended. Radio personalities like Jahmoun Mendoza, Dancing Jade, DJ Karey, Hollywood Sachy, DJ Keron and Beats By Robin of Boomchampions 94.1FM as well as Kimberly and Trevlyn of 96.1WEFM, were all a part of the fun. Also on board were Kernal Roberts, Dev, Blaxx, Zan, Nadia Batson and Ghetto Flex- each delivering their musical renditions as the boat sailed to shore. Roberts partied the night away before taking the microphone to sing her hits, “Always Be” with Zan, among others. She had a few choice words for her detractors, telling those who’d had the slightest thought that she would not have succeeded beyond her departure from Machel Montano’s HD band that she had proven them wrong.

Roberts’ ride was by all accounts- pretty awesome. The DJs and personalities delivered well- giving patrons just what was required on a Sunday sailing fit for a Soca celeb. The music of the Caribbean’s favourite entertainers, Machel Montano, Vybz Kartel, Buju Banton, Bob Marley, Popcaan and Alkaline, were in abundance but the balance was perfect- giving every music lover a little of what they wanted to hear at some point during the ride.

Now, with fans given a tease of what’s to come from her camp as she develops in her career, Patrice Roberts must show the world that she’s more than just a big girl now, but rather, she’s a true professional in everything she does. We look forward to what’s to come from the new Soca mom.

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.
