From the looks of it and according to the young fashion trendsetters, Marcelo Burlon’s tees are one of the hottest trends this summer. His tee-shirts feature geometric patterns, large pixieated prints and contrasting bold/neutral colors. Marcelo’s designs are a nod of his Argentinean roots. So far, we’ve seen celebs such as Chad Ochocinco, Drake, Pusha T, Meek Mill, Fabolous, Tristan Thompson, Waka Flocka and DeAndre Jordan all rock the tee-shirts.

R&B/Soul singer K. Michelle continues to sing her heart out. A week after dropping her single, “V.S.O.P,” the Atlantic Records recording artist releases the visual for “Half Of It” (her version of Rihanna’sHalf of Me“). On the track, K. Michelle reflects on her past, airs out her dirty laundry and admits that she is not proud of how she’s been living. She also shares that she wants to be a role model for young girls, wants little girls to be better than her and the way she acts on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. Her debut solo album, Rebellious Soul arrives July 30th. K. Michelle is very talented and I am rooting for her. Watch the visual below:

Will & His Son Jaden Smith Covers New York Magazine; Don’t Compares The Smiths To Those Kardashians

Will-and-Jaden-Smith

In support of their upcoming movie, After Earth which arrives in theaters this Friday (May 31), successful mogul Will Smith and his teenage son Jaden Smith covers the latest issue of New York Magazine. In their cover story, the two talked about family life, working together, wealth, being educated when it comes to money and much more. Please, don’t try to compare the Smiths to those Kardashians. The interviewer mentioned that the Kardashians have treated their fame as a family business and questioned whether the Smiths saw themselves as similar or different. Jaden didn’t really understand the question, so Will did exactly what a father should do and came to his son’s rescue. Below are some excerpts:

It’s been reported that you might be dating Kylie Jenner. The Kardashians have treated their fame as the family business. Do you guys see yourselves as similar or different? [Will, laughing, holds up his hand for Jaden not to speak.]
Jaden:
 I’m trying to understand.
Will:
 Don’t. You know, he’s never had to, to deal with those kinds of questions.

Well, forget the Kardashians … maybe you could just …
Will:
 [Mimicking] “So how do you think your life is similar or un-similar to people’s names in Calabasas?” For our family, the entire structure of our life, our home, our business relationships—the entire purpose is for everyone to be able to create in a way that makes them happy. Fame is almost an inconsequential by-product of what we’re really trying to accomplish. We are trying to put great things into the world, we’re trying to have fun, and we’re trying to become the greatest versions of ourselves in the process of doing things we love. So the idea of fame or exploitation or orchestrating the media is sometimes even less than desirable for us.

Do you think Jaden could have been a dentist?
Will:
 It may seem like we have pushed our kids into the business, but that is absolutely insane. I would never, ever, push somebody to have their face on a poster that’s going be everywhere in the world. He is making a choice from the informed. It’s less scary to me than if he wanted to be a dentist in that I couldn’t help with what he’d chosen. I have relationships with some of the biggest filmmakers and actors and producers on Earth. So I can be a huge help.

Willow chose singing and then un-chose it. She said, “Daddy, I want to go to school with my friends during the week, and I want to hang out with them on the weekends.” At the peak of “Whip My Hair,” she’s like, “Daddy, I’m done.” I was like, “Wow, wow, wow. No, baby, I got Annie [the upcoming movie remake, co-produced by Jay-Z], you know. It’ll be New York, you’ll be with Beyoncé. You can bring your friends.” And she said, “Daddy, I got a better idea. How about I just be 12?” At the end of the day, it has to be their choice.

In the past, Jada has described the family as transparent. Do you think that’s true?
Jaden:
 Definitely.
Will:
 Let me see. Are we transparent?
Jaden:
 You can argue that we’re extremely un-transparent. Everybody knows where we live, but nobody really knows what our house looks like.
Will:
 That’s true.
Jaden:
 We kind of live in a fortress. 
Will:
 I think for the most part we are transparent in the sense that there’s very few big family secrets. I think that if Jaden or Trey [Will’s son from his first marriage] or Willow were to write a book ten years from now, it will be very similar to what people think. And, the things about our family that are mysteries or seem strange, when they’re explained, it’ll be obvious. You know, the forum of media that we’re in can’t really handle the complexity of things that we say all the time.
