Lavish Movies: The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete

I have to be really compelled to spend money to see a movie nowadays. Everything seems so overblown, overdone and just plain unrealistic. But when I saw the trailer for this one, I was truly moved. Mister and Pete tells the story of two children brought together by a common mission to find out what happened to their mothers, who seem to have unfortunately gotten wrapped up with the same criminal group as a means to make money. The interesting twist is that the boys, one Black and one East Asian, share this commonality in the environment of the city projects.

The movie stars Jennifer Hudson and Jeffrey Wright, with newcomers Skylan Brooks (playing Mister) and Ethan Dizon (as Pete). Alicia Keys co-produced.

The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete debuts in theaters October 11, 2013.

Lavish Music Picks: Maimouna Youssef

What rock have I been under that I’ve never heard of Maimouna Youssef? Oh yes, I know. The pop music and mainstream radio rock that rarely plays any new gems. I caught Ms. Youssef’s video for I Got A Man on VH1 Soul the other day, and I just loved it. Sweet, soulful, real, and feel good music that I’ve been missing. If you haven’t heard her, check this song out, released in 2011… You can here her music here.

Weekday Flyness: Emelie Sandé

I’ll be honest. It’s been a while since I flipped through a fashion magazine. I’ve been spending summer doing what I love to do: going to outdoor concerts, traveling (more on that soon) , and hanging out on the beach. Basically trying my best to avoid media outside of the office and get the maximum dose of sunshine. But I had to post this spread of singer Emeli Sandé, from the July issue of Essence Magazine, because she just looked amazing!
