Too Grown For That

Nicole Richie joined her father, the one and only Lionel Richie, this past week on CNN’s ‘Larry King Live’. I just watched the entire interview on, and I’m quite impressed by how much Nicole seems to have grown in the past few years.

Give It To Me Right

I was really into Melanie Fiona‘s first single, “Give It To Me Right”, when it dropped a few months ago – but they waited quite some time to release this official video (below). Not for nothing, it’s a cute video – and she’s a gorgeous girl with a great set of pipes. I’ve since moved … Continue reading
