2008 MTV Europe Music Awards + Fatima's "Modelville" Ep. 3 Recap

Lemar and Estelle were just some of the UK-based artists that attended the 2008 Europe Music Awards in Liverpool, England last night. Lemar was there in support of his new single, "If She Only Knew" while Estelle hit the stage with Kanye West to perform her hit single, "American Boy."

On her feet are Jimmy Choos - the same stylish pair Melody Thornton and Alicia Keys previously wore. As for Estelle's furtistic dresses, be sure to visit NSC Fashion Network for the scoop!

Hence a new shoe crush is born... sigh!

UK-based publication The Guardian posted up ten highlights from the 2008 EMA's and Lemar made the list. Check it out.
4) Lemar tells us that it would have been a great idea for Barack Obama to have declared his victory speech over a backing track of Dizzee's Fix Up, Look Sharp. His suggested lyrics?

"I stay sweet as a nut, sweet like Tropicana,
You better get out that house because I'm Barack Obama,
You're not ready for this Bush,
You better send your best boys, cos you can't stand the push!
More democratic and saving the Yankee dollar
Republicans don't stand a chance, not now, not ever" [GUARDIAN]

The November 24th album release date for his new album, "The Reason" is far too long...or maybe that's just me.

Fatima Siad kept her competitive drive going for the third episode of "Modelville" (Life After Top Model).

My random thoughts:
So I took a brief break from my shoe obsessions thanks to this bronze Gucci "Hysteria" clutch spotted on Beth Ostrosky, Cameron Diaz, and Sanaa Lathan.

It's official - I need therapy for my growing shoe/bag addiction!

Anyone else bothered by the title of the new animated film, "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa"??! Okay let me explain why. I say this because Madagascar is off the southeast coast of Africa. The trailer goes into further detail...

Yeah I'm still taking my little brothers out to see this film. Anyhow it's just a film meant to be funny. To be fair the first one had the cast in New York before they landed in Madagascar. No offense taken but that's just my opinion.
