On May 25, 2011 Rihanna tweeted: @rihanna: #RihannaNavy BET just cleared #ManDownVideo woooohooooo... Best news of our LIVES!!!! We LOVE you @BET
Now we see why she was so happy, nevertheless we love the video and its authentic West Indian style!! Take a look at the video and see for yourselves!
There has been no known cause of death just yet, however sources are saying he may have passed away in his sleep.
LRG’s ties with the hip hop community are strong, with many prominent names shown modeling their fashion in a series of ads. Alchemist, Smif-N-Wesun, Drake and legends such as Pete Rock, DJ Jazzy Jeff and De La Soul have sported LRG wears in advertisements over the years. The brand also had close ties with star athletes such as Memphis Grizzlies standout player Rudy Gay and New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush. New Young Jeezy signee Freddie Gibbs also joined the fray, modeling some LRG gear for the company’s 2011 summer campaign. - D.L. Chandler of MTV
Überchic's hearts goes out to both him and his family.
One of our favorite girl groups from the 90's is reuniting for a new album. After taking a 13 year hiatus the talented trio has been signed to a deal with Mass Appeal Entertainment and E1 to record their fourth album.
Along with creating a new album the group is currently working on a documentary to show their success, failures, break-up, and inspiration. No word yet when the album will be released but be assured Überchic will definitely keep you posted!!
What: 2011 Billboard Music Awards - Las Vegas, Neveda
Wear: Herve Ledger Cross-Back Bandage Dress and *unknown designer* nude sandals
My opinion: This piece Kelly is wearing definitely deserves a YAY!! The color of the dress pops out and compliments her skin tone very well!! Not only does it compliment her skin tone but it also embraces her figure and compliments her body shape as well!! Kelly definitely looked simply stunning at the award show! Kudos to her!
For a similar look!
However, one truly caught my eye, Melody's Addiction!! Her jewelry are VERY unique ranging from leather, metal, to fabric!! Below is an interview featuring her and her story!
To check out more of her jewelry please go to her website and online store!!
In addition to the posting of the clip he added:
“Sometimes you need perspective. You’ve been right in front of greatness so often that you need to step back and see it again for the first time. This is the dressing room rehearsal for American Idol. NO MICROPHONE. No effects.”
As you all should know the Oprah show had its final episode yesterday. I took a lot away from her inspirational and profound statements.. I'm sure you will too!!! Überchic wishes Oprah all the best and appreciates her for helping to set the tone for all that women can achieve no matter where you came from. So just in case you missed it here's a clip from the final show and if your like me it may still feel a little weird to turn to ABC and there is no Oprah... just the news lol.
Hope you Enjoy!!
She announced each track via facebook during hour intervals. Below you can view the track listing for yourself!!
BTW I don't know how I feel about those heels she's wearing in this picture. I feel as though I have a love hate feeling for it. One thing I can say for sure though it is VERY different!
2) I Care
3) I Miss You
4) Best Thing I Never Had

11) I Was Here
12) Run The World (Girls)
Last night the Billboard Awards aired on ABC. A lot of the chart toppers were present from Bieber to Britney to Rihanna who opened the show last night with a very energetic performance. It was great to see Britney on stage last night with Rihanna and then later performing with Nicki Minaj, although, she received a lot of backlash for lip singing... but at least she looked good on stage doing it. But the show stopper had to be Beyonce performing Run the World (Girls) and accepting the Billboard millennium award. I can't decide which one I liked more her acceptance speech for the award when she acknowledged her old group members Kelly, Michelle, and even the original two LaToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson or her entertaining performance. It was also a good night for other chart toppers, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Eminem were all big winners last night.
If you happened to miss Bey's performance take a look below:
This uproar over the nominees eventually trickled down to BET themselves where Stephen Hill sat down with The Juice of Billboard.com to talk about there decision making process when choosing nominees. For the article click here.

Nicki Minaj is known for a lot of things, crazy outfits, crazy/humorous personalities... but principal?!?! Yesterday she made a surprise visit to Collins Academy High School in Chicago where she helped lead an English class, acted as principal and of course signed autographs for all of her barbz. The school was awarded the rapper's visit due to participating in the "Get MotivatED Challenge," a competition to improve high school attendance.
Besides the hip hop star's presence the best part about her visit had to be that she presented three lucky students with $10,000 college scholarships. I must say its great to see celebs help contribute to the empowerment of education... way to go Nicki Minaj!!
What: amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS - Antibes, France
Wear:*unknown designer* A loose tied green satin top and a plum satin long skirt
My opinion: I have to say this gets a definate YAY!! The colors are suddle but still goes very well together! The satin also gives a suddle but elegant feel to the ensemble! This look is very different might I add but it is definitely a winner in Überchic's eyes!!!
For a similar look!
Take a look and see if you think the video is of Chris Brown's usual quality.
ALSO stay tuned for his next single off his F.A.M.E. Album, "Next to You" ft. Justin Beiber!!
After many weeks of teasers Beyonce finally released her new video, Run the World (Girls). I personally like it, don't really think it was worth that long wait but take a look for yourself... Also take a look at what may be the cover for her album "4".
The final Oprah shows are approaching and rumors have been surfacing who will be the last guest?? Rumor has it that Will & Jada will be the final guests others claimed it will be Tom Cruise.. Well according to her last taping of the final show it will be such a star studded event that it was made into a double episode. Take a look at the pics to see which stars made the cut for Oprah's big farewell show!
Last week the new singing competition show "The Voice" premiered on NBC with 11.8 million viewers, making it the highest-rated premiere on a major network this year. The show already has a pretty good line up as far as judges but joining the cast is R&B superstar Monica. The superstar is set to join Cee-Lo's team after the show wraps up the blind auditions she will be helping him coach his picks. Since she definitely has one of the best voices currently in R&B I think she will be a good fit for the show. To catch a new episode of "The voice" tune in to NBC tonight at 9pm.
