Fly Girls & Dope Homies In Red This Week Featuring Ciara, Dominic Lord, Zendaya Coleman & Big Sean


While in the City of Light for Paris Fashion Week, Ciara was photo’d arriving and exiting her hotel. She changed outfits but kept on the same custom-made Givenchy boots as she attended a few runway shows and fashion events.

A dope pair of sneaks always keeps the cypher complete! Rising Harlem rapper and fashion designer Dominic Lord relaxed on a sofa in  a white tee-shirt and grey jeans paired with Air Jordan 1 sneakers.


Disney’s actress and singer Zendaya Coleman makes her YDBR debut! She struck her fly girl pose in a Karl Largerfeld graphic tee-shirt, Topshop leopard leggings and Air Jordan 9 “Motorboat Jones” sneakers. Zendaya is so adorable! Her style reminds me of Cassie.


Big Sean performed a sold out show in his hometown of Detroit. He was reppin his city by wearing a Detroit Red Wings jersey.

Chris Brown Talks About Losing His Virginity At 8, Growing Up Too Fast In The Music Industry & New Album ‘X’

Chris Brown

R&B/Pop singer Chris Brown recently did an interview with UK-based site the Guardian. The Grammy Award winning multi-platinum artist spoke to writer Decca Aitkenhead at a recording studio in Los Angeles and gave a candid interview. Breezy revealed that he indeed grew up in the public eyes too fast; losing his virginity at 8-year-old and his career plans after he releases his new album, X this November. Below are some highlights:

[Side Note]: I ONLY included the positive highlights because the writer focused too much on the negative side of Chris Brown and tried to agitate him. 

On defining himself, who he is and what he does:

Well, I would say I’m an inspirational guidelines book. You can take my life story or scenarios or songs and relate to them, and apply them to your everyday life. You know, whether it be personal or musical, I just think I’m a walking art piece, just a ball of creativity.”

On losing his virginity at 8 to a 15-year-old girl:

“Yeah, really. Uh-huh.” He grins and chuckles. “It’s different in the country.” Brown grew up with a great gang of boy cousins, and they watched so much porn that he was raring to go. “By that point, we were already kind of like hot to trot, you know what I’m saying? Like, girls, we weren’t afraid to talk to them; I wasn’t afraid. So, at eight, being able to do it, it kind of preps you for the long run, so you can be a beast at it. You can be the best at it.” (Now 24, he doesn’t want to say how many women he’s slept with: “But you know how Prince had a lot of girls back in the day? Prince was, like, the guy. I’m just that, today. But most women won’t have any complaints if they’ve been with me. They can’t really complain. It’s all good.”)

On his image from when he first came out to now:

 “The only thing that’s probably changed for me is just the facial hair a little bit. When I first came out, it was more of a young, warm, clean look. Very clean, very Disney.”

On growing up too fast in the public eyes and does he regret fame coming early:

Honestly, where I’m from, probably not. I think me being able to travel from the small town I was from, me already having a good IQ, and you know being intelligent, and regular stuff, I just had to learn more and more of the street life, you know, how to manoeuvre around a room full of wolves.”

On dealing with the naysayers:

You know, whether it be naysayers, people that won’t say, ‘Hey, I like that.’ But as far as me being young, like, I don’t regret it, I love it, being able to accomplish my dreams at an early age. That’s just showing the kids that’s coming up in sixth or seventh grade, I can do this. If I really stick to it, I can do it. ‘Chris was my age when he did it.'”
