Just Stand Up- Various Artists

It’s beautiful when women come together for a good cause. We need to come together more often for things like this. I Love it! Good song, good concept and the best artists to carry it out.

Rihanna first wore her Balenciaga gladiator boots when she dropped off her “Take A Bow” video at 106 & Park back in June, then again while shopping in West Hollywood yesterday:

Some may find this a little surprising but I like the way she rocked it yesterday. Although the shoe takes center stage and the top had it’s own print going on, it worked. The all black worked as well but I like the mixed prints. But… 

When did she wear it best?

Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones died just yesterday from a brain hemorrhage caused by an aneurysm. Check out the report:

Representative Stephanie Tubbs Jones, a longtime member of Congress and most recently a stalwart supporter of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, died yesterday just after 6 p.m. Her hometown paper, The Cleveland Plain Dealer, reported earlier that the police found her unconscious in her car on Tuesday night, after seeing it weave erratically. She was seeking her sixth term in Congress. And she was a prominent member of the Congressional Black Caucus as well as a recent co-chairwoman of the Ethics Committee, which she helped to rebuild after a stormy period when the Foley page scandal rocked the House of Representatives.

She was 58 years old. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
