HIV/AIDS is a serious issue in many communities across the states, especially the younger communities. I strongly encourage all of my readers to get tested and practice safe sex.

Of course, Chris Brown, Ashanti, Rick Ross, Amber Rose & Wiz Khalifa, Rocsi Diaz and Jennifer Lopez & Casper had heads turning when they walked the carpet in their fashionable outfits.

Drake attended Cash Money/YMCMB’s Pre-Grammy party in West Hollywood. For the event, the newly Grammy Award winning rapper wore red En Noir Leather Sweatpants paired with a denim shirt and Nike Air Force 1’s sneakers. These Italian lambskin leather sweatpants feature gold zippers, soft and supple leather, and asymmetrical blind seams on the lower legs. En Noir is becoming a major trend in the fashion industry. I like this brand because it is high-end mixed with street wear. I also like their leather pieces. Do you like these leather sweatpants and do you like how Drake put his outfit together?
