TREY SONGS VS. JOE????
The streets are on fire!!! Sources claim that on Saturday night two R&B singers, Trey Songz and Joe, came to blows:
“Both Joe and Trey were seated together in the VIP section at a New Jersey club. Everything was fine at first, with the two guys hanging together and drinking. But as the liquor flowed and the night went on, one of Joe’s friends got into an argument with one of Trey’s friends. And before long, all heck broke loose. The entire VIP section started brawling — including Joe and Trey Songz. Trey didn’t get anything too bad, but Joe and his people were beat up pretty badly.”
I’m sure both Trey and Joe will deny playing a part in the melee. But witnesses say those two were definitely throwing bows!!
WHAT HAS THE WORLD COME TO WHEN R&B CATS ARE BEEFING
Much has been said about the state of Dubai since its lightning speed of development almost ground to a halt, thanks to the global financial crisis. What, everyone is wondering, will come of Brand Dubai?
The seemingly unending supply of money sparked an unspoken competition between developers and business leaders to create the most ostentatious – biggest, tallest, widest et al – of absolutely anything, not least the ‘super’ buildings, created by international star-architects, all vying for ‘icon’ status. More than anything, this was the cornerstone of Brand Dubai. Which worked quite well for a while. And then the world changed. The bubble burst and everything that Dubai stood for – overt displays of wealth and conspicuous consumption fell dramatically out of vogue.
So where to now? We wondered, looking around at all of the unfinished skyscrapers on a recent trip.
Like a soft drink brand that has misjudged its market, Dubai needs a ‘re-brand’ to reposition itself – that much is certain. The world doesn’t like the flavor or texture of Dubai anymore, so R&D needs to go back to the drawing board.
Snapping at its heels are other centres in the region, such as Qatar, which appears to have learned from Dubai’s mistakes. It too has dizzyingly deep pockets but appears to be taking the path of relative restraint. Which, in a world still reeling from the GFC, is totally on-brand right now.
The latest release from Jordan Brand consists of its Winterized Spizike Boot, a play off the now popular Spizike fusion sneakers. The shoes are remixed for the Winter season with a rugged, outdoors aesthetic. This new colorway pairs a Flint Grey upper with Cherrywood highlights and Nightshade accents amongst mostly leather and nubuck construction. Available now through Gettry as well as other Jordan retailers worldwide.
