“She’s is looking super sexy!”
Chanel Iman to Appear on “Gossip Girl”
It is rumored that Chanel Iman, busy catwalking this week, will appear on an upcoming episode of Gossip Girl but there is no word on whether it will be an ongoing role, or just a breeze-through.
Also, we’re still waiting for confirmation of her post as the new host of MTV’s revised House of Style, a position that Leo DiCaprio’s lady, Bar Rafaeli, is supposedly up for as well.
Looks like Chanel Iman is preparing to invade the small screen in a big way…

Kanye’s Ego Still Refuses to Land
Kanye West and his rumored new model chick Amber Rose at the Narciso Rodriguez Fall 2009 fashion show
Something odd happens with celebrities when they get too famous. It’s like they lose whatever was holding them together as regular people. Kanye West has always showed symptoms of perplexity ever since College Dropout but lately, well, were starting to lose your boy completely. His ego is becoming uncontainable. I don’t know weather to blame it on the 808s, the heartbreak or both. He’s become addicted to Auto-Tune and we can’t get him off and now, the Chi-town rap star may have just found his female equivalent with model Amber Rose, his rumored new love interest, who looks to be just as eccentric as he’s become. Hopefully she’s not the reason for his new flamboyant fashion direction.
In an interview with Details magazine, ‘Yeezy boosts his own ego, yet again, to new unscalable heights, tries to make “gay” the new buzz word and lets us know that maybe we need to add him to the nuclear watchdog list with North Korea and Iran.
GIANT Magazine’s, Pharoh Martin says, After reading these quotes, I have to admit, if I were doing this interview I’d probably be tempted to just turn the recorder off and walk away baffled.
Here’s what he said:
“Put this in the magazine: There’s nothing more to be said about music. I’m the f–king end-all, be-all of music.”
“Oh my God, I’m one of the greatest rappers in the world. I’ll get on a track and completely ee-nihilate that track, I’ll eat it and rip it in half. I wouldn’t have to think of it.”
“I have, like, nuclear power, like a superhero, like Cyclops when he puts his glasses on.”
“People ask me a lot about my drive. I think it comes from, like, having a sexual addiction at a really young age.”
“I think ‘gay’ should be said as a compliment. Like, ‘Dude, that’s so good it’s almost…gay.’”

Model Falls to Her Death in England
Sahar Daftary, 23, who was crowned the Face of Asia last year, fell from a 12th floor flat in Manchester at the weekend.
Her 33-year-old former lover was arrested on suspicion of murder but was released on bail without charge.
Initial findings suggested Miss Daftary’s death appeared to be either a tragic accident or suicide, police sources said.
At the family home in Brentford, west London, her mother said: “I don’t believe my daughter would have done this herself. She had booked a holiday to Dubai and also it is against her religion.
“We don’t know exactly what happened to Sahar. We are just waiting for news from Manchester when we should know more. The truth will come out.”
Her brother-in-law Joe Karim said: “She would never commit suicide. It was against everything she believed in. She had everything to live for. She was a beautiful, intelligent, religious woman.”
The family said Miss Daftary had given up modelling and had started a course at Thames Valley university studying business and accounting.
She had recently split from Rashid Jamil, a property developer, after discovering he had already been married, the family said.
She was also upset that a sexually explicit video of her had appeared on the internet.
Her family, who are Sunni Muslims originally from Afghanistan, said Miss Daftary and Mr Jamil went through an Islamic ceremony declaring their love for each other at the Holiday Inn in Brentford in December last year.
After the split she had gone to his £200,000 flat in Manchester to remove her possessions. During the visit she fell from the window.
Police have confirmed that her former boyfriend rang 999 saying he needed help. He later rang police to say she was dead.
According to her family Miss Daftary had been looking forward to celebrating her birthday on Christmas Day in Dubai.
Their solicitor Brian Koffman said: “The family are devastated at the tragic loss of Sahar. She had pre-booked a flight to Dubai to celebrate her 24th birthday on Christmas Day with five friends.
“We firmly believe there is no way she would have committed suicide. It would be contrary to her religious beliefs.”
One of her friends Fatima Raddani, 30, already in Dubai, said: “She was beautiful, very friendly and very happy. She was loved by all.
“Sahar would not dream of doing anything like this. She was a very straight girl. It is not like Sahar. She was not even in that mindset.”
Tributes also poured in to the model on a social networking website.
Her cousin Zareen Qadri, 20, said: “She was the best. She was the most beautiful person both inside and out that you could have met.”
Friend Diwa Zai said : “I can’t live without you Sahar, why did you leave me?”
The couple had declared their love in an Islamic ceremony last year.
