Jennifer Lopez: My Style Is a Mix of Jackie O And Madonna
Jennifer Lopez – who has her own fashion range for Kohl’s – revealed to OK! magazine she takes inspiration from the three very different style icons…

If you mix Jackie O with Madonna in the ’80s and Ava Gardner, that would be kind of like my style.
You just have to decide what you feel most confident in, because confidence is what makes people sexy. You have to be you but don’t get stuck.
I grew up in the Bronx, so my style had a more urban, hip-hop influence.
My fashion for music and the red carpet was influenced as I got into the business and exposed to different designers and travelling. I kind of mesh all that together.

Natalie Cole compares Beyoncé to Madonna
Here’s what Natalie Cole had to say about Beyoncé during an interview with Chris Witherspoon on NBC’s theGrio…

I think that it’s going to be interesting to see where Beyoncé’s career goes.
Because now I would say, she is the new Madonna. Girls want to look like her; they want to dress like her… I think that she could be a great influence. She’s a nice girl, definitely not a “diva” in the sense of what we like to use as that definition.

Greek singer Krystallia impersonates Madonna
On the Greek TV Show “Your Face Sound Familiar”, a greek singer “Krystallia” impersonated Madonna performing Vogue from the 90 MTV awards. After the performance one of the Judges, Katerina Gagaki (@gagakia on twitter) commented:

Your dancing was shockingly same as hers. I don’t think that I heard what she (Madonna) does with her voice, which is not something I like about her, she lacks vocal abilities. On he other side you are vocally a lot forward!

According to Madonna Greece the Greek fans were not very happy with it…

David LaChapelle Still Life
To mark the beginning of his collaboration with the Galerie Templon, American photographer David LaChapelle will be presenting two powerful series in France for the first time: Still Life, and the innovative Last Supper.

The high point in this series is a new photographic fresco reinterpreting Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. In LaChapelle’s interpretation, figureless floating heads and expressive, yet completely detached, hands shown inside cardboard boxes compositionally represent the original masterpiece in an accurate yet startling contemporary way.

What do you think about this?
