Jhene Aiko

I haven't done a music blog for a while now. 2 reasons. One, 2013 was an awful year for music and two my iPod is a bit dodgy at the moment with artists such as Diana Vickers, John Newman and Rebecca Ferguson. See! My silence has been for your own good really!
Allow me to introduce you to the sultry, seductive R&B vibes that Jhene Aiko supplies. 

Chill out to her sweetly soulful voice on 'The Worst'

Jhene is 25 and from LA.
Her debut EP 'Sail Out' was released in 2013.
She's collaborated with artists such as Drake, Big Sean and Childish Gambino.
Big Sean's hit Beware was Jhene's first song to chart on Billboard.
Jhene featured on Drake's album last year and supported him on tour.
With another up and coming singer Banks.

With her daughter Namiko.

'Bed Peace' is great.

Jhene's new twist on R&B can be favourably compared with Frank Ocean's and The Weeknd's classy experimentation to update the genre.

You wouldn't guess from these photos but Jhene has a serious love of tattoos to rival Rihanna's!
Jhene's debut album 'Souled Out' is released this May.

How big can she get? Let's wait and see.

Grammys 2014 Fashion

Taylor Swift's chainmail style gown quickly got me thinking that Game of Thrones is back on soon! It's by Gucci and it's wonderful. One of the best of the night.
Katy P's Valentino Couture dress is sweet but not note perfect.
Beyonce's Michael Costello gown may have been better if only the top was see-through. The leg gap is bit off but she really looks in great form.

Ariana turns up the sweetness factor to ten in D&G.

This was great by Foxes. An unusual pattern for Vivienne Westwood. Not so out there as normal.

I thought Rita's dress might me Burberry but it's Lanvin darlings.

Altazurra for a Rihanna determined to flash the flesh at these awards.

Not sure this amount of cleavage is Pitch Perfect Anna.

Very daring and bold by Zendaya in Emanuel Ungaro.

Looking Demure with a capital D Iggy! Elie Saab innocence.

Legs! Legs! Legs! Julia looks well but a bit too much flesh on display in another Elie Saab number.
Ciara does maternity style way better than a certain Kim in Pucci.

Chrissy Teigen wowed in a Johanna Johnson gown. John was the sharpest of the guys in tuxes. Gucci style for the Legend.

Saint Laurent as expected on the robots. Ooo new shoes?!

Well well Miguel! In the mood to party are we?!

Natasha Bedingfield still has that boho vibe going but with a twist. Christian Siriano who designed the dress is the only designer from shows like Project Runway that I hear about on a regular basis.

Gothic Glam for Lorde. Sleeve details would have added interest and hair up for the night would have been intriguing.

Very striking Taylor! Alberta Ferretti master class.

Baby blue especially for you. Katy in Armani Prive.

Jennifer Hudson looks well. This Christopher Kane number is maybe too informal though. More of a party dress than awards show number.
