Charice Pays Tribute To Whitney Houston [VIDEO]

February 15th, 2012 | 2 comments | Posted by Jen

Never been a big fan of Charice. Those big pipes just didn’t fit such a little dimply pipsqueak and the whole package gave me a certain vertigo. But she’s grown up a lot, as you can see here:

There’s something chilling about this. Not because it’s so damn good–though that it is–but because Charice is 19 going on 20, the same age as Whitney when she signed with Clive Davis and Arista Records. When I chewed on that fact a little, the phrase “ships passing in the night” popped in my head. I didn’t remember that the phrase originated in a Longfellow poem until I looked it up, but it’s eerily appropriate:

Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing,
Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness;
So on the ocean of life we pass and speak one another,
Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence.

RIP Whitney. Without your voice, there’s darkness, and then silence.

Thank you, @BasseyworldLive

Did Aretha’s Inauguration Hat Have More Diva Attitude Than The Queen of Soul Herself?

May 12th, 2010 | 5 comments | Posted by Jen

Luke Song, the hatmaker who designed Aretha Franklin’s infamous Inauguration Day hat, is suing several firms he’d previously done business with who’ve copied and sold the hat without his permission. In the federal lawsuit he filed last week, Song alleged:

Moza’s hat worn by Aretha Franklin (hereinafter the “Original Inauguration Hat”) gained instantaneous fame and notoriety, attracting much more media attention than even Aretha Franklin’s performance itself. The Original Inauguration Hat has generated, and continues to generate, worldwide attention. In fact, following President Obama’s inauguration, Luke Song and Moza were featured in prominent newspapers such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Los Angeles Times (Exh. D) The Original Inaugural Hat had immediately become such a cultural icon that it was soon parodied by entertainers such as Ellen DeGeneres because of its lavish and ornate design was so distinctive.

Wonder what Aretha thinks about The Hat upstaging her performance. What do you think? Continue reading Did Aretha’s Inauguration Hat Have More Diva Attitude Than The Queen of Soul Herself?

2 Divas, 1 Dress

December 20th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Recently, while shooting a music video at the Great Wall, C-pop singer CoCo Lee wore the same one-of-a-kind, $200,000, crystal-encrusted divabot dress that Beyoncé worked at the BET Awards in June. CoCo reportedly said that she didn’t mind wearing Beyoncé’s hand-me-downs. Not sure if I believe that.

So which diva is rocking the gown harder?

Saucy, sassy, pretty South Korean “diva of the streets” Lim Jeong-hee, a 26-year old known for staging mini street concerts and blessed with both a woman’s voice and a studious child’s dexterous fingertips, is teaming up with everybody’s favorite hip hop duo OutKast for her first American release this year. This announcement was made only a year after Lim made the initial leap to New York to learn English.
