PICS: THE Q AWARDS (LONDON) – AMY WINEHOUSE

Singer Amy Winehouse attended the 2009 Q Awards last night (26th Oct), which took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. Waste Woman Winehouse also showed off her recently surgically enhanced breasts and was accompanied by her protégé/”god-daughter”  13 year old singer Dionne Bromfield. I question the sanity of Dionne’s parents.  They are just asking for trouble and a visit from Social Services (if they can be bothered). I’m sorry but all I see is warning lights up ahead. Amy with her 13 year old “god-daughter” Dionne Bromfield who looks a lot []

UPDATE: PICS – 10TH ANNUAL NEW YORKERS FOR CHILDREN FALL GALA

UPDATE: Last week I posted the photographs below that were taken at the 10th Annual New Yorkers For Children Fall Gala. I then asked out loud if the youth workers, foster children, their carers etc had been invited a long to this event, because all I could see were photographs of grinning celebrities. Anyway a visitor kindly informed me that they did attend and I now have photographs. [Thanks New York Social Diary] Amy McFarland, Susan Burden, Nicholas Scoppetta, Susan Magazine, and NYFC Youth Leaders at NEW YORKERS FOR CHILDREN’S 10th Annual Fall []

BLAST FROM THE PAST: MONTELL JORDAN ATTENDS ‘MADEA GOES TO JAIL’ ATLANTA PREMIERE

90s R&B star Montell Jordan attended Tyler Perry’s ‘Madea Goes To Jail’ film premiere on Monday night (Feb 16th) in Atlanta, Georgia. I was never a Montell Jordan fan. I found his music bland and boring. But I am curious to know what he is doing now. Does he still make music? is he touring? Montell and Adina Howard (remember Miss ‘Freak Like Me’) just disappeared in to obscurity post 1996. The music industry can be so cruel and fickle…… I haven’t watched any of Tyler Perry’s films. Partly because they have never been []

PICS/LIVE RUN DOWN: MOBO AWARDS 2008 (WEMBLEY ARENA – LONDON)

I am sitting here watching the awards ceremony right now. So far…..  Mel B and Rev Run are doing a decent job of hosting the ceremony. They have good chemistry. John Legend opened the show. His performance was surprisingly weak and he was failing to hit the high notes. Estelle won Best UK Female. Congratulations! But her dress looked like it was designed by Tina Knowles and she has now developed an annoying transatlantic twang. Leona Lewis won Best Album (‘Spirit’). She wasn’t there to collect her []
