I watched my first episode of Glam God last week and must say it is a great show, I was pleasantly surprised! Now, guess how tickled I was when I heard Tiger Lily speak and detected the sweet melody of a Caribbean accent. I could not figure out which Island but I had to find out. It turns out that Tiger Lily is from the Cayman Islands with Jamaican roots that also extend to the UK. Talk about International flavor!

 

I love Tiger Lily’s style and confidence! She’s a fierce stylist who could easily be a model!

 

All contestants compete to win a chance to style an A-List celebrity and win a $100,000 grand prize. Good Luck!

WaMu Seized & Sold

Seized & Sold

 

 

 

 

Many from the Caribbean come to America with dreams of financial success and economic stability.All of the restaurants, auto mechanic shops, clothing stores, just to name a few are a testament to the realization of those dreams.  We often believe in the stability of the American banking system and use it as the primary place to store our wealth but it may be time to reevaluate that.

 

Yesterday, Washington Mutual was closed by the U.S Government making it the largest U.S Bank failure.  JP Morgan will now own WaMu, so we have one more monopoly to deal with, which is never a good thing for the end customer. However, it’s the Stock holders who are hardest hit as the stock dropped to .45 last night in after hours trading. So check you portfolio thoroughly.

 

You know that the insiders always know what’s coming before the public do, so if this stock is part of your portfolio please consult your advisers FAST and look at all of your options, read, read, read! It may be time to invest in something else, like gold or silver that doesn’t lose it’s value.

Usain Bolt: World’s Fastest Man on Letterman Show

 

On September 24, 2008 Usain “Lightning” Bolt appeared on the David Letterman Show in New York City.  The 3 time Olympic Gold medal winner was charismatic, funny and natural in front of the camera.  David Letterman asked many questions about the Track Star’s training regiment; his reception upon going home to Jamaica and “Were you born this fast?” This interview will make you proud to be Caribbean!

I have also included the Usain Bold Victory Lap Documentary put out by PUMA International below because it does a good job of highlighting Jamaica’s pride in their 22 year old “golden son.” In it we see his father and the community talking about what these wins mean. Enjoy!

Celebrity Caribbean Lineage: Naomi Campbell

Naomi Campbell was born May 22, 1970,  in Streatham London, England to Valerie Campbell (born Morris) of Jamaica. Naomi never met her father at her mother’s request as he left the then 18 yr old and Naomi at 2 months old.

 

Naomi’s first public appearance was in February 1978 when she was cast as on of the children in Bob Marley’s video for “Is This Love?” (First one below- can you spot her?)

She also appeared in Culture Club’s “I’ll Tumble 4 Ya” (Second one below- check at 0.47 sec and 1.28 sec to see if you can pick her out) as a tap dancer and also on The Cosby Show as Theo’s love interest Julia.

 

 

Here are pictures of her vacationing with her Billionaire Boyfriend Vladislav Doronin on his yacht off St-Tropez.

New York City: Hot 97’s On Da Reggae Tip

As a kick-off to the Labour Day Caribbean festivities in Brooklyn this year. Hot 97 and Massive B’s own Bobby Konders and Jabba hosted and annual Reggae star studded event called Hot 97’s On Da Reggae Tip. The event was held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan. Here’s a sample video of what was missed. Jr Reid, Serani, Wyclef Jean, Geisha, Marchal Montano, & Movado to name a few performed. I used to live in NYC for a few years and never heard about this event. I plan to be there next year ‘God willing!’

KEVON CARTER: Smooth Soca Sounds

Vodpod videos no longer available.
                                                                                                                                                                  Kevon Carter has a smooth soulful sound that blends well with his style of Soca and it just makes you feel good. He is definitely one to watch! If this video is any indication, I predict a lot of good things coming from Kevon Carter in the near future. I am trying to get my hands on what is now my favorite song- “Can’t Forget” as soon as I do I’ll post it for your listening pleasure. I hope he makes a video soon but in the mean time check it out on his myspace page:   http://www.myspace.com/simplymusic
