Rihanna’s dad, Ronald Fenty, is voicing his concern about his daughter’s wellbeing and concerns that she may face the same as passed away Whitney Houston…

She used to love Whitney, Rihanna told the Sun. “Robyn would always sing along to I Will Always Love You. She admired Whitney because of her range, her voice, her appearance, her personality and everything about her. She loved Whitney so much she would be honoured to play her. I think she would accept in a heartbeat. Ronald Fenty says he hope that Rihanna will not go down the same path as Whitney, who was using cocaine up until her untimely death in February. “I hope she will be smart enough not to go down that path,” Fenty said. “I think she is smart enough not to.” Last week Rihanna came under fire for smoking something that looks like a white substance at Coachella music festival. However, Rihanna shot back saying: “I’m crazy and I don’t pretend to be anything else.

Most of you all may know the Super Star above, Mr O'Brian Haynes aka the super start of media entertainment. If not likes get to it‌ Mr OB, the EX boom champions managing director is now The Street 91.9FM managing director. We are unsure of what happen but as of the begging of this year, Mr OB moved over to The Street91.9 along with some of his work force. We were unable to get an interview in time for this issue but what we do know is that some of your favourite radio programs like (Mike in the Morning & Chronicles of a Player) can now be heard on the all new urban station, with better sound quality and even more interactive. The best part of it, is that the shows are on the same time as when it was over on the other station. So now you know, I have a question. Will you be supporting The Street 91.9FM the same as when he was the boss over on the other station?

“Possessions make you rich? I don’t have that kind of richness. My richness is life.” These words and others by the late Bob Marley that epitomised the strength of the world’s reggae king, are embodied in a brand new film directed by Kevin MacDonald and executive produced by Bob Marley’s eldest son, Ziggy, in partnership with Tuff Gong Pictures and Island Records founder, Chris Blackwell. The two hour and 15 minutes long film is described as the most authentic on the late singer’s life. Local promoter, Roy Maharaj of Tri Star Promotions was a special guest at the premiere of Marley—The Definitive Story, last Thursday at Emancipation Park, Kingston, Jamaica. He said he felt honoured to have been personally invited to the event.

We trini people ain’t easy, we not easy at all. Films starring cutesy puppets are typically light-hearted, good-natured family themed entertainment. Leave it to Trini puppets to bring nuttin’ but bacchanal to the big screen. Lust, infidelity, and murder-forhire are just a few of the many vices that peppered the plot of Lexo TV’s first full-length feature I Am Santana – The Movie. Despite some very noticeable production shortfalls, the mix-upand-blend-up drama driven plot made the brilliantly scripted I Am Santana – The Movie one hell of a hilarious film! I Am Santana – The Movie is about the epic love story of Janice and Santana…and their nosey neighbor Narine, his abusive wife Patsy, the lecherous Pastor Stewart, man-tiefin’ Kizzy, Sookdeo the ‘bad Indian,’ prickly old Miss Millie, a surprise marriage proposal, a cutlass attack, a shooting, a kidnapping, a faked death, and an unexpected pregnancy. You all got to go see this one on the big screen. Ah Weak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

These are just a few of the online games at facebook we love to play when we are away from work or school. Millionaire City is an honest game, you will build a city and probably become a millionaire. City-builders sometimes feel like an odd fit for Facebook, but a bit of strategy is a welcome change from all the virtual pet games and clickfest sims. Millionaire City is most like Playfish’s My Empire out of anything released lately. .. Army Attack may just be the best military strategy game on Facebook. Army Attack is a game that’s about territory. It’s a military strategy game where you first have to find and conquer new land, before constantly defending it against a seemingly never ending supply of enemy forces.

In her new book, How Georgia Became O'Keeffe, writer Karen Karbo traces the life of a Midwestern farm girl as she becomes a self-assured art world phenomenon and an utter original. Here Karbo shares insights for any woman hoping to follow Georgia's lead. Aim High: At the age of 12, O'Keeffe was already telling people she planned to become an artist, even though, Karbo writes, that was the "equivalent of a modern preteen girl aspiring to be an army fivestar general or an NFL quarterback.“ Let Your Freak Flag Fly: "With her fabulous rawboned frame, straggly brows, and schoolmarm's bun, her black vestments, man's shoes, and odd assortment of hats and turbans, O'Keeffe was out there," Karbo writes. "After people adjusted to her curious look, they accepted it and expected nothing else.“ Play Hard, Work Hard: "Georgia was a proto slacker," writes Karbo. "There were days and weeks when she would read, spend hours tramping around outside, write letters, sew, and play dominoes.... But when Georgia worked, she worked her ass off."

We love the reading. We love the company and conversation. We love the stuffed mushrooms and potluck pinot noir. But every now and then, somebody says something that we really, really wish they hadn't especially, gulp, when that somebody is us. 1. "So, who liked the book and who didn't?" Beginning the night this way divides the group. Instead, have somebody open up with a question about the title or the point of view of the writer. Soon enough, who liked and didn't like the book will become obvious… 2. "Dealing with the kids I couldn't get past the first chapter." Most of us come to book club to escape stress and reality. If somebody didn't have time to finish, that's okay. This isn't high school. It's perfectly acceptable to sit and nibble and listen. Many a beloved member has come, occasionally, just for the cheese and friendship. 3. “Oh, I would never put up with a man who did” Making judgments about a relationship in a book can too easily translate to real life.

Starting your own book club is an endeavor that we applaud! And we've made it easy to do with these tips and resources.

Think about what your intentions are for your book club. Before you start looking for prospective members, sit down for a few minutes and ask yourself the following questions. 1.

Why are you starting a book club? What do you hope to get out of it?

2.

What type of people will make up the club? Are you hoping that all of you will have something in common (beside your love of books), or are you looking to form a diverse group?

3.

What types of books will your club primarily read? Fiction? Non-fiction? One particular genre, such as romance, bestsellers or biographies? Will you rotate through themes each month, like Asian literature, travel books or classics?

4.

Do you want to lead the club? If so, for how long, and how much time can you devote to organizing meetings, refreshments and discussions? If not, will other members be willing to take on these responsibilities?

5.

What are the minimum and maximum number of members your club can accommodate? ( This may be dependent upon where you're meeting location is )
