48 posts categorized "OK! MAGAZINE"
My title is not meant to imply that the weekly mags are doing too much on Whitney—on the contrary, it's a shocker that Life & Style (February 27, 2012) went with only an inset and I assume OK! (February 27, 2012), with no Whitney coverage, must get printed a day earlier than the others. I mean it more as: Look at all this death! But when you're one of music's biggest stars, you get profiled by the magazines forever—and beyond.
OK! (February 6, 2012) somehow got Madonna's dancer-boyfriend Brahim Zaibat to speak. In the piece, he says he was never a big fan of hers—"It is not the kind of music I [prioritize] in my iPod. But like everyone else, I knew her hit songs." (I wonder what word he said in place of "prioritize?")
About his womanizing past, Zaibat says:
"When I was younger, I had a number of female conquests. The dance helped me a lot. I am a dancer first. I have not yet shown the world the extent of my talent."
I figure Madonna would agree.
As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.
Of whom are you more jealous?
