Video: Michael Jackson’s Nephew Makes Musical Debut

This weekend, Austin Brown debuted the trailer to his debut album at KIIS-FM’s Wango Tango Concert in Los Angeles. The 25-year old newcomer is the daughter of Rebbie Jackson and nephew to the late, great Michael Jackson.  According to Ryan Seacrest, Austin’s influences include Prince, George Michael, and of course, his uncle.  He is being described as a cross between MJ and Justin Timberlake- that’s quite a compliment.

The video trailer displays all of Austin’s qualities: he can sing, dance, and is extremely charming.  He comes from a long line of entertainers, but I can see him making his own mark.

Sidebar: Is that America’s Next Top Model winner Saliesha as the lead girl?? I’m good at spotting these things.  Check out the video and more promo pics below.  What do you think of Austin?

Tyra Banks is a Harvard Scholar

 

Tyra’s been low on the media radar since cancelling her successful talk show, but she is still hard at work.  She recently revealed that she has been enrolled in Harvard Business School since last year.  She is currently about mid-way through the Owner/President Management Program; the program allows busy entrepreneurs to spend just three weeks on campus per year for three years.  Tuition is around $31,000 a year.  Tyra tells CBS News:

“In order for my company to grow and be the best, and to reach these women, and to serve them, I needed the best. So I went to the best…”It’s pretty exclusive,” Banks said. “It’s quite expensive. But, I feel like it is worth it. I feel like it is so, so worth it…”The day I put college on hold because I got discovered … was one of the most difficult decisions of my entire life.”

Tyra is also set to unveil a new website: TypeF.com, which will be a beauty and fashion advice website.

I think this is fantastic news.  Tyra Banks is the epitome of beauty and brains.  It was clever of her to wait awhile to reveal this news.  People will always be skeptical, but they would’ve been even more had she made a big announcement in the beginning.  We here at divaMissioN are all about getting your education, sooooo divaMissioN APPROVED!


Flo Rida Gives the Deets on Eva Diva

 

As you all know, Florida rapper Flo Rida and ANTM alum Eva Marcille have been dating for some time now.  Flo recently revealed to Global Grind (love them) how he met this diva:

“I’ve always been a fan of her doing her modeling thing. She’s a beautiful individual. Meeting her I realized she had a beautiful heart. Initially it was seeing her out and about while I was working and she was working. So we got each other’s contact, I pursued and we kept talking to each other. Right now we are talking and I’m definitely feeling her and vice versa.”

I’m sorry Flo, but “we are talking?” That’s high school language right there.  Let’s upgrade to “dating” please.  What do you think of this match?


America’s Next Top Model Is…..

ANN WARD!!!!!

The 6’2 beauty high fashion look, skinny frame, and ability to take great photos is what brought her to the top.  She won best photo a record five times and was a judge favorite for the entire show.  Her only obstacle was her extremely shy demeanor, which she managed to overcome.  Her competitor, Chelsea Hersley, was a great competitor as well, but was too caught up in doing a good job, and honestly, she didn’t stand a chance against Ann.

The two competed in an edgy Covergirl shoot and Roberto Cavalli runway show, and the designer was a guest judge after.  Ann has won many prizes, including a spread in Italian Vogue, a cover and feature in the magazine’s beauty insert, Beauty in Vogue, a year of representation from IMG Models, and of course, $100,000 Covergirl Cosmetics contract.

Congrats, Ann!!

Tyra Banks Has A Stalker

This is just not Tyra’s week.  On top of the lawsuit from her talk show, Tyra has been forced to file a temporary restraining order against an alleged stalker named Marten Williams, Jr.  And let me say, this fool truly sounds crazy.

According to the complaint, filed October 12, Tyra calls him a “mentally unstable stalker who believes that Michael Jackson is alive and well and living in Long Beach.”  Whattttt???!!!

She goes on to say that he has sent threatening messages and items to her mother, including their “proposed wedding date” of Jan. 8, 2011 (according to him of course). 

Of course her request was granted for herself, her mother, and brother, and will remain in effect until a hearing on October 28th.

Phew!! Stay safe diva!!!
