I Love Maroon 5

Maroon 5\'s \

I love me some Maroon 5.  Last summer I was rocking this album on a, seemingly, endless loop, so I was excited to hear about the release of the  Deluxe CD/DVD of “It Won’t Soon Before Long”  I loved this album because of the 80s elements, sexy lyrics and soft ballads.

I love the idea of Maroon 5 and Rihanna partnering in the song, “If I Never See Your Face Again”.  I did not even realize that Maroon 5 did a remix (kinda) with Rihanna. (Sidebar: I have been super, duper busy lately, rendering me unconscious to popular cultural happenings.)  I will say that Rihanna does not sound half-bad and her style and makeup (FLAWLESS!!!)   Adam Levine is definitely a looker, which adds to the mystique of the band.   Dangit, I am still PO’ed I missed them in concert last year.  And the upcoming tour date to my area is not even convenient.  Damn you, somebody! LOL No one to really blame.

I will be picking up the Deluxe CD coming out July 8, 2008.

Hair Today

Rihanna is not apart of my playlists, but I do love the evolution of her hair dos.

When she arrived on the scene, she had classic updos (i.e. chignon), spiral curls, very girl next door. Now, she has morphed into a chic baby Vicky Beckham and I love her 80s-inspired hairdos. I also like the fact that she is looking less Beyonce and more like her own person. (Great job, Team Rihanna!!) Here are some of my favorite looks:

I also love her make-up in most of these shots. I hope she has longevity, so we can all admire her style transformation (on mute though!!) 😉
