Bruno Mars stopped by VH1 studios to do acoustic versions of his EP "Somewhere in Brooklyn,” “Nothin’ on You (Remix)” with his producing partner Phil of The Smeezingtons, and “Dr. Feel Good” with Travie McCoy. I really like his style. He has such a beautiful voice.

Janelle Monáe has impeccable style. Always menswear inspired but still has the elements of femininity. In her latest video "Tightrope" featuring Lupe Fiasco and B.O.B. they all team up for the (Wondamix) remix. This song is from her debut album, The ArchAndroid: Suites II and III, which is in stores now. This video has a combination of style, class, and mama is working those dance moves. I'm all over this.

This year's BET Awards, Prince will recieve top honor. He will follow in the likes of James Brown, Whitney Houston and Diana Ross and will recieve a Lifetime Acheivement Award. The show will air on June 27th and will be in its 10th year. The award is well deserved as Prince has had a long standing career with numerous hits. "Dove's Cry" is still my favorite song.
The BET Awards will be hosted by Queen Latifah and scheduled performances will include Kanye West.

Here at Fashionistaz Life, we are huge fans of D.C. MC Wale. His latest song "Prescription" is jazzed infused hip-hop with slick lyrics on how he's the remedy for hip-hop. Wale's music is a breath of fresh air. I had previously blogged about his video "Pretty Girls" which gives a shout out to the fly ladies. Check out the song below and lemme know if you're feeling his flow :-)
Here is the latest single "Everything To Me" from Monica's upcoming album Still Standing. Monica sounds great and looks incredible. I'm loving the red Alexander McQueen dress. All of her outfits are on point.
Here's how to get Monica's look:
Ever hear a song on the radio for the first time and instantly love it?! That's how I felt about this B.o.B aka Bobby Ray's song "Nothin' On You" featuring Bruno Mars. His style kinda reminds me of Lupe Fiasco. #imjustsayin'. It has such a easy going cruising around with your honey type of flow *wink*. The song talks about a guy letting a girl know she's the sh*t and there's no other. The is B.o.B.'s first single from his anticipated debut album B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray which hits stores April 27. The video will be released the first week of March.
In the March issue of GQ magazine, Drake puts down the mic and picks up a suit and fedora to show off a few looks for the Spring/Summer. I'm feeling his looks and he looked like he was having alot of fun on this shoot.
Ugly girls be quiet, quiet...pretty girls..clap, clap like this...
This video has been long awaited. Wale is giving a shoutout to all the pretty chicas in this "Pretty Girls" joint. Just a lil dissappointed Gucci Mane wasn't in the video, but still a hot concept.
