Suzanne Jongmans Latest

Contemporary Dutch Renaissance, using non-recyclable materials. Perfectly executed. Suzanne Jongmans photo’s are apt, with climate change at the forefront of discussion. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. The most important message being the everything is recyclable.

James Versus James

James Brown versus Rick James, both legends in their own right. Granted the “Godfather Of Soul” is a whole different level of icon, they were both phenomenal entertainers. Still, when drugs were involved they were both equally scary. James Brown having a bad PCP addiction, once stormed into a seminar, he believed was his hotel room, holding all participants at gunpoint, demanding to know “what the hell they were all doing in his bathroom?” All before a police chase, across state lines until the wheel popped off his car and still he kept going. Once the car went kaput, he exited the vehicle to perform for the officers, who cuffed him promptly afterwards. Amongst other things.

Rick James was known to be volatile under the influence of cocaine. A hell of drug, as he stated in his Dave Chappelle episode with Charlie Murphy. Boy isn’t that true. James and his then girlfriend Mary Saugar, held a woman hostage for days, assaulting her with a cocaine pipe and forcing her to give oral sex, amongst other things.

So the question is, which rockstar would you be less afraid to party with? The Godfather Of Soul or Rick James…Bitch? A question that’s plagued my mind for years. Photos: Getty Images and Rick James Official

On The Real Tip

SO I took the plunge and got acrylic nails. My nails don’t look like this, they are purple chrome, almond shaped and slightly shorter. As soon as I got them glued on I felt as my friend Porsche said, that everything in the room was moved over an inch. Usually my nails are cut super short, for cleanliness. I also stopped doing gel, because it destroyed my nails. Literally my nails were so thin it felt like looseleaf paper. I’m so sensitive to stuff like that, because your body is your temple. So I stopped getting my nails done until I could find an alternative (powder gel). This coming from a girl who has been getting her nails done religiously since age 11.

I mastered the art of acrylics a few hours after they were done. Here are my most helpful tips (no pun intended):

  1. Remember you have them on, that was the hardest part! I kept forgetting my nails were longer. This makes you cognizant of all activities from here on out.
  2. Use the side of your finger. Whether it be typing, opening something, picking something up, use the side of your fucking nail. Otherwise you’re going to break it.
  3. Use your knuckles when putting product in your hair, so gunk doesn’t get stuck under your nails. I read this on a website.
  4. Take your time when doing anything, honestly, if you try to rush with these babies on it will lead nowhere good.

These nails are major, worth it and everyone who has acrylic nails deserves an award. Navigating in the world becomes that much harder and still we rise. Photo: Miss Betty Rose

Winnie Monroe

After scouring social media for the best Halloween costume, Winnie Harlow as Marilyn Monroe is the winner. It’s sexy, glamorous and not the typical white dress that lifts up, or the diamonds are a girls best friend pink. Who had your favorite costume? Photos: Winnie Harlow
