Street Etiquette: Making Moves

First GQ now Urban Outfitters seems to me these guys are about to make some moves. I think its only a matter of time before these two guys are debuting a clothing line, directing a fashion show, becoming professional stylist for celebrities, etc. If Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs keep it up, Street Etiquette just might become a house hold name.

Check out Street Etiquette in GQ and Urban Outfitters:

Travis: There is no denying that GQ is the magazine for mens style. They have managed to turn a noun into an adjective, something that every lifestyle brand strives for. It’s very fulfilling for us to be given such a momentous opportunity so early in our development. We will continue to build and work hard. Thanks to everyone who showed much love and support when they surprisingly came across us in this magazine. Read more……

Diggy Simmons Signs With Atlantic Records

Rev Runs son Diggy Simmons has inked a deal with Atlantic Records today, a day after his 15th Birthday.

His brother Russy and sister Angela where there to support him, in fact Angela took this twitpic.

He released a mixtape titled “First Flight” a few months ago, which gave him the buzz, but I got to admit I wasn’t expecting any label to pick him up like they usually do, and nt take chances on up and coming artist. I kind of shocked me, but I’m not too surprised cause Diggy’s got  talent.

“Lady Controversial”

Weird, crazy, stupid, outrageous, cool, creative, whatever you want to call Lady Gaga’s latest music video “Telephone” featuring Beyonce  there’s no denying it’s very unique on a whole different level. In the last couple of days this video has been buzz of many blogs and caused a lot of heads to turn. As soon as I saw the video I knew that a people would have a problem with it because it’s very controversial. I personally don’t care for Lady Gaga at all or what she sings about, the point is she did go a little far in this video, and I’m not surprised she did. This video is filled with heavy sexual undertones, lesbianism, and violence just to name a few.  These things have been implemented into all of her previous videos as well; this time she just figured how to put a whole arsenal of controversial things into one video.

The video caused such uproar on the web rumors began surface that MTV had banned the video and deemed it inappropriate for its viewers to watch because of its raunchy content reported by DailyContributor.com and CNN. I came across a post on MissJia.com reporting that MTV executives are denying the rumors.

According to Miss Jia:  It was reported by CNN.com that bosses at MTV had decided to ban the video because of concerns over its sexual content, as they did with the promo for Madonna’s 1990 hit “Justify My Love.”

However, MTV’s manager of programming, Tuma Basa, has hit back at the reports. In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, “The reports are false… the video’s been airing since Friday morning on AMTV.”

Whatever the case is this video has caused a big ruckus, a much deserved ruckus especially with the contents of the video. One has to admit that the video is very bold in what it portrays; it’s just the way that people are receiving it. Some people like it and think it’s a work of art, others think it’s downright disgusting and insane.

People are also shocked a Beyonce’s involvement . . .

People are also shocked a Beyonce’s involvement as well. Beyonce’s says Honey B character from my understanding is supposed to be Lady Gaga’s girlfriend or accompanist throughout the video all the while driving the “Pussy Wagon”. I guess viewers and fans alike where shocked at Beyonce’s lesbian role in the video and from reading several comments on blogs just as many people didn’t care at all. Beyonce’s has been under scrutiny ever since she started her solo career, because she has become more sexual with each album. Her being sexual and wearing the clothes she wears in her music videos seem to contradict with her being of the Christian faith and being brought up in the church. Seeing that many of the things she sings about and the way she dances seem to contradict with the Christian faith and its practices.

But hey, everyone has their own opinion what do you the readers think?
