THE BEST VINTAGE JEWELLERY, LIKE, EVERRRR......
Ok, so I have been pointed in the direction of a DEVINE new jewellery designer from Birmingham.... ADRIANNE. She designs and makes (with her own hands....now that's A skill) a beautiful range of vintage inspired jewellery including 'teatime necklaces' and 'retro daze' earrings! My personal favourite is the Kiki Curiosity Charm Bracelet (see pic) which, as with all of Adrianne's jewellery completely bespoke. As it says on the site: no two are the same, SO GO COP THAT UNIQUE BLING LADIES! So cute!

Erykah Badu is hitting Brixton Academy on Sat July 24th to showcase some tracks off her amazing new album 'Amerykah Part 2: Return Of The Ankh'. Now, if you haven't got it yet,what the hell are you waiting for?! It's like a return to her former glory of 'Baduizm' well, almost.
There's plenty of live instrumentation and compared to the political tones in Part 1, it's much more romantically focused….GO GET IT! Personal faves include: 'Gone Baby Don't Be Long', 'Umm Hmm' and 'Window Seat' see the video here:
Tickets to the gig are just £36 each, all in....cop them here: http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/
/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ I-TUNES (/LIMEWIRE IF YOU'RE BAD LOL) RECOMMENDATIONS/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\
KANO ft AIDONIA & WILEY - GET WILD
Produced by BoysNoize.....sick electro beat....one to skank to me thinks!
CHASE & STATUS Vs DIZZEE RASCAL - HEAVY
So I heard this on Mistajam's show a week ago and it is one of THE BADDEST, wickedest (and every other urban superlative you can think of) tune I have heard in AGES! Unfortunately Dirtee Stank (Dizzee's record label) have had it removed from youtube so I can't show you the vid YET! but listen to 1xtra between 7amd 10pm Mon - Thurs, Jam is sure to play it a few times! It's dubstep meets electro meets jungle: IT's SICK!!!!
CHRISTINA AGUILERA ft NICKI MINAJ - WOOHOO
So Xtina is back with a new album 'Bionic' and this is the first single to be leaked. I'm kinda feelin' this tune, but only coz of Nicki really. I get the feeling Christina's going hard to try and compete with the likes of GaGa (who she looks remarkably similar to in this vid) so she's gone FREAKALEAK with the lyrics. See what you think.....(the vid is not made yet, this is just the music)
4,3,2,1 looks set to be a BANGER! Hitting cinema's on June 2nd I canni wait!

WINNIE (no not 'The Pooh') will start filming early June. It's a biopic of the infamous Winnie Mandela, the ex-wife of South African Leader and true freedom fighting icon, Nelson Mandela.
Starring Jennifer Hudson as Winnie and Terrence Howard as Nelson. It's likely to detail the fraud, kidnapping and murder controversies that Winnie has become synonymous with. Revered by some and reviled by others….'Winnie' is bound to cause a polarisation amongst movie goers especially in S Africa.
Now this next bit also falls into the 'holy shit, is that 50?!' category.....
This week, 50 shocked the world by releasing pics of himself looking skeletal and downright crackhead-ish in prep for a new film he is working on. 'Things Fall Apart' is co-written by the (once) big man and details the life of a professional footballer who is daignosed with cancer. He dropped a jaw-dropping, pain-inducing, vom-helping (?) 54lbs for the part!!! (That's like 4 STONE ladies!!)
He survived on a ridiculously low cal liquid diet (euww gross) and pounded the treadmill for 3 hours a DAY, now THAT's dedication. Bad news for 50 is that the film has yet to set a release date, which doesn't bode well for its expected quality! Let's hope it wasn't all in vein eh! Now bring back the 50 we know and love (to hate)!
Ciao for now
