French Montana Covers Bleu Magazine; Celebrate Release Cover With His Girlfriend Trina


Bad Boy’s recording artist French Montana covers the latest issue of Bleu magazine with a special double cover to celebrate their 25th issue. The publication hosted a private dinner party at Parlor in NYC. Montana’s girlfriend Trina was present. Former Basketball Wives Miami reality star Meeka Claxton and Sassy from Black Ink Crew were also in attendance. Below are some excerpts via The YBF:


On collaborations he would like to pursue:

“I would say my dream collab would probably be something with Tupac . He was my favorite artist and I grew up listening to him. I have a lot of respect for the work he did, and it would be an honor to be on a track with him.”

Where he finds inspiration for his signature rap:

“I get inspiration from everybody: artists like Adele, Cold Play. I would love to work with them and give the fans a little something different. I always wanna outdo myself and change it up. I think collaborations with artists like that would be a great look.”

Describing the types of music he enjoys:

“I listen to everything; all types of music all the time. Not heavy metal though.”

On surviving the industry:

You need to know how to help yourself by yourself because sometimes there won’t be people there to lean on. You have to hold yourself up when nobody else can.”

Describing his debut album Excuse My French:

It’s just a lifestyle. It’s the life that I live every day. One day I might wake up in a bad mood and make a song about that. One day I might be with a lady and make a song on that; I’ll be in a good mood and write about that. The album is just all the different emotions I go through on a daily basis.”

Beachwear Style: Five Of The Hottest Swim Trunks For The Summer Season


Burberry Brit Laguna Checks Swim Trunks

These Burberry trunks are available at Saks for $295. They feature a tie waist and back welt pocket.

In the states, we’re just two weeks away from summer! I love the warm breeze and beach weather. Summer is my favorite season because I love jet-skiing, spending time at the beach, cookouts and driving drop tops. I also love to show off my super cool summer style/fashion. One thing that I really dislike is seeing males at the beach in jeans or sweatpants. Males should always dress in beachwear when they’re at the beach. A lot of designer brands/fashion houses released their Summer 2013 menswear swim collection. Dipping and dappling, I came up with five of the hottest swim trunks for the summer. Do you like my list and what would you add to this list?


Gucci Diamante Boardshorts

These swim trunks are designed in quick-dry nylon with the brand’s signature diamante and web print. They also feature a cinched waist and side splash pockets. You can get them at Neiman Marcus or Saks.


G-Star RS Merckx Swim Shorts

These black and neon yellow swim shorts feature a drawstring waist and a letter “G” on the front left side. They’re available at Zappos for $65.


Tommy Hilfiger Flag Swim Shorts

These navy blue swim shorts features an elasticated waistband with a red drawstring tie, two side pockets, a signature flag print on the front, a rear patch pocket with a flap closure, designer logo embroidery at the rear and designer logo embroidery on the front. Get them at Farfetch for $108.


Lacoste Colorblocked Swim Trunks

Featuring a mesh lining, elastic waist with drawstring tie, on-steam side pockets, logo patch on the leg, and back flap pocket with Velcro closure. You can get them at Lord & Taylor for $95.

These navy/pink sneakers are from the fashion house Spring/Summer 2013 collection and feature a leather trim, metallic Gucci trademark on the back, rubber sole and pink laces. You can purchase them at Saks. I will pair these sneakers with navy drawstring sweatpants from Zara or Balmain biker jeans and a pink tee-shirt. Are you feeling these sneakers and how would you wear them?
