Adele Keeps On Soaring High

Adele continues to dominate thee entire musique industry airwaves performing a never before heard tune off 2011's album of the year "21". Might I add, the first time I listened to the first single 'Rolling In The Deep' last November of 2010 (yes it was officially released that long ago in the UK), I instantly dubbed the soulful pop tune a classic and saw nothing but multiple if not earth shattering Grammy awards in her future.

Unfortunately, she didn't make the cut for the deadline at this year's award show but come 2012, it will be a win-win situaion for Adele. Now my one thought is, will she sweep the awards and equal or even surpass the record holding title of 5 Grammy wins in one night for any female artist in history?

The likes of Tina Turner, Beyonce, Sheryl Crow, Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys, Norah Jones, Alanis Morissette, Bonnie Raitt, Whitney Houston and Lauryn Hill are all women who deserved their share of accolades and recognition but I think it's time to break that record and Adele seems to be the perfect songbird to do so! It will indeed take 'Someone Like Adele' to accomplish such a feat. I of course, am rooting for her all the way to the Grammy stage.

Never Before Sung On The Tele: Take It All


Tune: Rolling In The Deep

Tommy Hilfiger's Pop-Up Fantasy Has Finally Landed

Complete with Ducks, Tote bag's, and M&M's...Tommy Hilfiger finally unleashed his "Preppy world pop-up house tour" we told you about a few months back. Landing in NYC's Meat Packing district, you can scope out the Americana style which reflects the American identity according to the likes of Mister Hillfiger of course.

Inside the pop-up house, you'll discover a tiny exhibition with items associated to designer's repertoire. In partnership with author Lisa Birnbach, whom is responsible for writing the book "The Prep World", you'll find things for both women and men to desire.

The collection includes 60 pieces and if you find yourself wandering around the NYC area, you may wanna swing by "Little West on 12th Street" to scope out all the astonishment for yourself. Heaven knows I would. Whether it's your cup of tea or not, how can you resist in the name of appreciation for art and fashion this stellar pop-up shop? But than again, there are true lovers of fashion and then there are the casual followers.

The exhibition ends in New York on May 8, and will continue on in L.A., London, and plenty more other cities.
