Gracing Pages: Ginuwine Graces J’Adore Magazine

https://i2.wp.com/jadoremag.com/mag/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/ginuwine3.jpg

There are several stars in the music world who consistently radiate light. They become the envy of the men and rule the hearts of women. Multi-platinum R&B crooner Elgin Baylor aka Ginuwine is one such individual. The 33-year-old heartthrob is an absolute personification of his name and has returned to win over the hearts of fans once again. His sultry sex appeal is best remembered on Billboard hits such as “Pony,” “Differences,” and “In Those Jeans.”

Four years have passed since Ginuwine released his last full length project, 2005’s Back II Da Basics. His latest single “Last Chance” from his recently released new album, A Man’s Thoughts, marks the return to the familiar sound his fans have grown to love. As he confidently relays on the stellar new track, “If I only got one shot to win you, then call me Jordan, 4th quarter in ‘92,” he re-asserts that his persuasive vocals are indeed still on point. On a picturesque afternoon in Los Angeles, Ginuwine shares thoughts on his new album, the state of music today and why he needed to take a hiatus from the industry.

“Music is the key to everything,” Ginuwine says with a smile. “I saw Michael Jackson on the Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever Special in 1983 and the reaction he received inspired me to move people in the same way.” The Washington D.C. native would use that motivation to later become an impressionist of the King of Pop and perform in local talent shows with a group by the name Physical Wonder. After graduating from Forestville High School in 1993, he went on to earn a paralegal associate’s degree from Prince George’s Community College just in case his pursuits in music did not work out. However, Ginuwine was never worried; he knew he had a special gift. “I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t try,” he explains.

Farrah‘s cover was photograped by Bruce McBroom taken in 1976 on the same day she was photographed in her famous red bathing suit.

All On The Cover: Lindsay Lohan Covers Vogue España

Lindsay Lohan as Marylin Monroe for Spanish Vogue August 2009…

Vogue is always hot and when it comes to summer Vogue is always promises a number of surprises. As to me there is the only one interesting Vogue August 2009 cover that presents one of the most exciting photoshoots of this month. I am talking about Lindsay Lohan as Marilyn Monroe for Spanish Vogue. These shots can be named everything but boring!

From reenacting Marilyn Monroe’s 1962 nude photo shoot for New York Magazine to inking herself with a famous Monroe quote, it’s no secret that Lindsay Lohan idolizes the iconic blonde bombshell. And she’s at it again! The starlet recently channeled Marilyn Monroe for a Spanish Vogue pictorial shot by photographer Alix Malka in the Hollywood Hills to run in the magazine’s August issue.

Andy LeCompte, who styled Lohan’s blonde wig for the shoot, told PEOPLE at the time, “Putting on a character is very inspiring for her. She loved it. She was putting on such a character. She’s always game to experiment with that.”

Lindsay Lohan Sparkles in Photoshoot with Stolen Diamonds…

Lindsay Lohan graces the cover of UK ELLE magazine’s September 2009 issue. The photo shoot took place in London and received a huge amount of media attention when it was discovered that some of the designer jewels from the shoot went missing.

Lindsay is looking sexy in this photosession for Elle. However, her sexuality doesn’t bedazzled the thieves and they managed to steal the Dior diamond jewelery. The only gems left for Lindsay were a couple of bracelets.

It sounds amazing and unbelievable, but police is still investigating the case. Elle magazine has no intention of blaming Lohan for this theft. Lindsay in her turn is furious since she is fed up of being a scapegoat.

The magazine hits newsstands in Britain on Wednesday and in addition to photos, carries a story about the chaotic few days that it took to get the shoot and story completed.

So they say….Lohan IS known to be high maintenance. The ELLE design team gave her high praise for her work on the project.

She was shot by none other than Karl Lagerfeld for their new campaign and brings a more playful factor to the classic French couture brand. The ad features an exceptional assortment of Chanel accessories from Fall/Winter 2009/2010 collection – “Coco Cocoon”.

For now only a couple of images of the Lily Allen for Chanel campaign have surfaced, but look out for more as we get closer to Fall.

All On The Cover: Usher Covers Vegas

Usher covers Vegas Magazine and from the looks of it, it seems like he’s back to the way his fans love him.

The magazine quoted him saying, In time I’m going to grow older, but I hope that I can be remembered for being a great father to my sons, a gentleman, and a renaissance man.”

Trying to pin down what Usher has been up to lately could take hours of interviews and a river of ink. At the moment, he’s set to release his sixth studio album, “Monster”, as well as the third fragrance in his collection, VIP. Then there’s his philanthropy work and his eponymous foundation (through which 20 teens will get to direct the first video off Monster). On top of all that, he’s the father of two young sons, one-and-a-half-year-old Usher Raymond V and seven-month-old Naviyd Ely Raymond. (“That’s all I need, a daughter to make me superweak,” he jokes about adding to his brood.) In June, he announced his separation from his wife of two years, Tameka Foster.

With this much going on in his life, it’s no wonder that Usher sequestered himself and his crew in Las Vegas to produce Monster. Usher and his team, including music superstars Pharrell, Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox, rented out the third floor of the Palms Resort Casino, then made a daily commute to the resort’s in-house recording studio, where everyone from Elton John to Mary J Blige to Axl Rose has laid down tracks. “Vegas is good livin’, a product of positive energy, upward thinking,” Usher says. “Every time we’d go out to a club, there would be motivation there. [Recording in Vegas] allowed me to open my mind and just be creative and think outside the box.”

He even discusses how he plans on being back real lovemaking music for the masses:

“The sex in music, the good sex in music, the lovemaking in music, we’ve begun to depart from it. Right now it’s all about hitting it and quitting it. I think there are a ton of women out there who want to be made love to and want to have that song going that they really want to make love to.”

Check out more photos and a video of the photoshoot below.
