Kimye Wedding Recap

In case you missed it, the NY Post printed a pretty scathing (some are calling it spot on and even clever) teeny tiny wedding announcement for the newly married Mr. and Mrs. West. While most papers and online mags had full-on sections devoted to the coverage here’s what the Post had the offer:

Kimye Wedding Recap

” Two jackasses got married in Italy Saturday.

Sex tape star Kim Kardashian,33, wed egotist Kanye West, 36, in a wedding opulent enough for

Florence’s Medici dynasty and tacky enough for reality TV.

They were both betrothed at Florence’s 16th Century Forte de Belvedere Castle.

Olympic Athlete Bruce Jenner walked Kim down the aisle.

The republic still stands.”

 Ouch. That’s some pretty serious shade. And while we get that these two and the Kardashians in general are way overexposed, we at least applaud their effort in giving the people what they love to see- beauty and over the top weddings. For us, it’s pure entertainment and we loved seeing some of the preliminary details ( the full scoop will be in this week’s People Magazine.)

So here is what we know and love. The bride wore custom Givenchy as did the groom and little Baby North. The gown was demure enough with it’s hand sewn Italian lace while also paying homage to Kim’s signature figure with it’s curve hugging silhouette and illusion cutouts at the sides. Kim wore her hair simply (our favorite hair look of hers in a long time) and accessorized with tasteful ( yet still huge) solitaire diamond earring which were a gift from her new husband. The bouquet was also super simple and tasteful and the guest list was kept at under 150 for an ultra intimate feel.

And while the circus of her last wedding was just as fun to watch, this one had the actual feeling of two real people (albeit insanely famous people) at the center. We can only imagine the countdown clock that has already begun to see how long this marriage lasts, and call us eternal optimists, but we think this wedding had the right things in mind to ensure that this time it lasts. At least more than 72 days… Okay, that was mean. So we’ll just end in saying love them or hate them, Kim Kardashian was beautiful on her wedding day and certainly these two have some serious high-end yet classic taste that we can all admire. Kim may have been born to be a bride, so we just hope the next time we see her in a wedding gown, it’s for a glamorous and over –the-top vow renewal!

What is a B.O.B.?

What is a B.O.B. ?

Rising R&B/hip-hop artist Bobby Ray Simmons, Jr. better known as B.o.B. bounced onto the music scene earlier this year. B.o.B. first signed onto a record label at the age of 17, but is finally reaching America’s iPods in 2010. His first single titled “Nothing on You” featuring Bruno Mars set the stage for his upcoming album release. “Nothing on You” begins with about 20 seconds of B.o.B’s smooth vocals with a hint of that whispery-sexy tone that reels the listener in, especially the women. Soon after, the hip-hop kicks in, and before you know it, you’ve got a #1 hit. It’s no wonder that the ladies find a particularly heightened interest in B.o.B. with lyrics like:

Beautiful girls all over the world

I could be chasing, but my time would be wasted

They got nothin’ on you baby.

Clearly, this is what every woman wants to hear. But B.o.B.’s musical intelligence and success does not stop there.

Released at the end of April 2010, his album titled B.o.B. Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray quickly topped the charts including the Billboard 200. B.o.B creates a mixture of R&B and hip-hop with a rock influence throughout this album. At a young age of 21, B.o.B.’s musical collaborations include songs on his first album with renowned artists such as Eminem and Lupe Fiasco. Not to mention he is signed on with T.I.’s record label Grand Hustle.

Airplanes, another single featuring Paramore’s Hayley Williams, has garnered much attention and increased his fan base. Airplanes can be heard on the trailer for the upcoming film Charlie St. Cloud starring heartthrob Zac Efron.

Critics compare B.o.B.’s musical stylings to artists like Kanye West. It’s that blending of beats and melodies with a catchy tune that gives B.O.B. mass appeal.
