Kia Rio Zip and Dash to LA with Christina Milian

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kia Rio. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

Kia Rio 2013 New Model

 

 

Check out the Kia Rio Zip and Dash to LA with Christina Milian. A super fun scavenger hunt between two teams competing  to meet singer Christina Milian in a geocache challenge across Los Angeles in the 2012 Kia Rio 5-Door! The Bluetooth system and USB input jack help them to discover clues and unlock codes to find their way from The Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round, Amoeba Records, Rodeo Drive, Pink's Hot Dogs, and to the final destination - The Roosevelt Hotel!

The first challenge was to answer L.A questions using cubes. The second challenge was to find a hidden Christina Milian cd in Amoeba Records.I found that challenge to be extremly hard I would have lost my mind searching. The third challenge was to count the number of palm trees on Rodeo Drive. The fourth and last challenge was for the two teams to clean their plate at Pinky's hot dogs. 

The teams had a blast and had the opportunity to use the Kia Rio  decked out  super cool features including a navigation system, bluetooth system, USB jack, and a rear camera which is my ultimate favorite feature. To learn more technology in the Kia Rio for your driving experience check out Kio Uvo!

Would you take on the challenge throughout L.A to meet your favorite superstar?  Who wouuld it be? Check out the video and tell me what you think.

has given the first taste of her upcoming studio album by releasing new single "New Day". Sharing a link to the audio, the R&B singer/songwriter wrote on her Twitter Thursday, June 28, "It's almost time... I can't even contain my excitement!!! Here we go..." ""There's no limitation, no/ Fill up your life/ Let me see your hands up," she sings in the drum-heavy song, which is produced by her husband Swizz Beatz. Still, she does not say if the track is the lead single off her yet-to-be-titled fifth effort. 


Keys recently reached out to her fans by taping a short video in which she talked about a different person she has become now and how it affects her next album. "I've come to this place that the album is about to be ready and I feel just so crazy excited. It's like I'm a different person. I'm a new person. Everything is new, from being married and having a baby," she shared. 


"I've become so much more intelligent and I survey the landscape more and try to come up with what's the best thing for me, what's the best thing for [son] Egypt, what's the best thing for our family," the mother of one added. "I've gone through so much growth and so much realisation and realising that in life different things come and different things change. I've learned that I have to trust myself and trust my instincts. I had to and I have to be braver than I've ever had to be before." 


The 31-year-old further gushed about the new LP that would serve as a follow-up to her 2009 set "The Element of Freedom", "So much of the music that you're going to hear is talking about what that feels like, what we're all going through, all of us... That empowerment, that freedom is definitely something that's reflected in this album.

Katy Perry goes posh glam in Vogue Italia and looks hot while she poses in various futuristic garments. 

The "E.T." singer looks fundamentally futuristic wearing a blonde and pink bob with intense eye make-up.

Katy is normally very bubbly with her attire, but still looks gorgeous in the alien-like spread. In one photo, she has a leather casing around her neck with black and silver eyeliner paired with pale pink lips.

This editorial is very different from her red carpet look at the premiere of her documentary Katy Perry: Part of Me. The 27-year-old looked glamorous in a strapless velvet red dress with matching pumps.

[Photos] Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Tour In Amsterdam


Nicki Minaj hit Amsterdam’s Heineken Music Hall as part of her ‘Pink Friday Tour’ last night.

Sporting a series of ‘unique’ get ups, the chart topping Rapper’s stop at the venue follows sold out performances in Japan and Sweden, but comes before she arrives in the UK this week for the tour’s British leg.




Her upbeat set comes two months after she became the 8th Black female artist to score two US #1 albums.

Beating efforts by fellow Islander Rihanna, it also makes her the first Female Rapper to do so- surpassing feats by Missy Elliott, Lauryn Hill and ‘Black Friday‘ darling Lil Kim.



I love the neon trend and hip hop 80s look Nicki Minaj and her show stopping dancers rocked on the stage.

New Music: Chris Brown "Calypso"


Check out Chris Brown new music "Calypso" produced by Polow Da Don. The track was dropped for Breezy fans and can be downloaded on iTunes. 

The Michael Jackson inspired gives me chills at the end of the track. This song would have been hot if M.J was still here. Breezy also just revealed in an interview with FuseTV just how close he came to collaborating with the late, great King of Pop.


The two singers started working on music together soon after Michael Jackson watched Breezy perform his hit single “Thriller” at the World Music Awards over in London town.


Breezy, still new to the industry at the time, killed it, leaving Michael highly impressed.

Justin Bieber Surprise Performance At Stratford Intermission



“You’re A Good Man, Justin Bieber,” commented the Peanuts gang. That’s what the audience at Saturday’s matinee of the Stratford Shakespeare Festival production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown must have thought when they walked onto Downie Street, outside the Avon Theatre, at intermission.

Justin Bieber made a surprise performance during the intermission of “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown” on Saturday afternoon on the steps of Avon Theater in Stratford, Ontario. Bieber sang his hit song, Baby.

Pretty awesome of the Justin Bieber!

Hot Look! Justin Bieber In Sons of Heroes Leopard Jacket and Supra Sneakers

 

Hot Look! Justin Bieber stopped by Sirius XM Radio Studios in NYC to promote his new album “Believe”. The award winning teen singer was rocking a Son of Heroes Leopard Silk & Leather Bomber Jacket ($663) from the Spring/Summer 2012 Collection and a pair of Supra Skytop 2 sneakers ($150)


 


New Video: T.I "Love This Life"

T.I.
 As T.I. preps the release of his long-awaited eighth album ‘Trouble Man,’ he offers his latest visual for the LP’s lead single, ‘Love This Life.’ Directed by Ryan Hope, the Atlanta rhyme-slinger is looking stylish in his video as he promises his lover the finer things in life.

In the simple clip, Tip is rapping his song and smoking a cigar intermix with shots of various models walking and posing in lingerie. T.I. raps, “In V-I-P them bottles be popping, do it B-I-G / Come get with T-I-P and be ballin’ till you D-I-E.”

We also have to note that T.I. is looking fly in the video with olive-colored military shirt, denim jeans and dark shades. Like ZZ Top says, every girl likes a sharp dressed man. Despite T.I. calling his ladylove a “b—-” (much to our chagrin), this is a heartwarming rap ballad. The song will make even the toughest street dude buy candy and flowers for his girlfriend.

T.I.’s ‘Trouble Man’ album will hit stores on Sept. 4.
