Rihanna Loves Vita Coco

Rihanna in Vita Coco ad

The St. Michael, Barbados-born, super-successful pop singer Rihanna’s latest exploit is the popular American-owned, but made from Brazilian coconuts, Vita Coco coconut water.  Vita Coco is advertised as 100% pure and made from only green, handpicked coconuts as opposed to those dry up ones that our iconic coconut vendors sometimes have no choice in selling to a coconut-friendly but agriculturally challenged nation like Trinidad and Tobago.

Rihanna sporting a Vita Coco in Tetra Pak

Apparently the Vita Coco Company has been around for about 4 or 5 years and I like the concept of Vita Coco coconut water having a shelf life of 8 months without refrigeration. The company has sales of around US$ 12 million per year and is said to be worth over US$100 million. The company has been able to attract celebrities like Madonna and Demi Moore to invest in it because they love to hydrate naturally with Vita Coco. Vita Coco comes in that familiar, Swedish Tetra Pak which is also a symbol for clogged drains in Trinidad and Tobago.  Rihanna’s controversial Man Down video has Vita Coco strategically placed for a fee.

Vita Coco is advertised as a way to “Hydrate naturally,” “So good for you it’s nuts,” and “Nuts for life.” Sexy Rihanna says “I love Vita Coco! It’s real coconut water from hand-picked coconuts.” I predict when Rihanna’s Vita Coco ad campaign is formally launched, the ads might say “Rihanna loves her Vita Coco,” or “So goood you will want to suck on it all day” or even “It’s better than two bananas.”

I don’t think Vita Coco is available in Trinidad and Tobago and I never tasted is so I can’t say how good or bad Vita Coco is. What I do know is that I once tasted canned coconut water from Thailand and nearly puked as it tasted more like boiled coconut husk than coconut water.Coconut water in Trinidad and Tobago is available fresh from the nut from many vendors brandishing razor-sharp cutlasses at equally hazardous prices. Recent trends suggest that waiting by coconut vendors with jug in hand is not too fashionable in our wannabe first world country so many have instead opted to fork out large amounts of their disposable incomes for those refrigerated, short-shelf-life bottles of coconut water in the supermarkets. I can’t say if the coconut water sold in supermarkets has no added ingredients or that it is 100% pure or that the nuts are green and handpicked like Vita Coco. What I do know is that the quality of coconuts in Trinidad and Tobago is as inconsistent as the color of WASA’s water or the charges Customs Officers at the courier bonds drop on unsuspecting taxpayers.

Eminem – Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna

Rihanna can be described, according to Wikipedia, as a BarbadianR&B recording artist and songwriter. She can also be described as talented, sexy, infinitely  better than Chris Brown, and able to sell more than 15 million albums and 45 million singles worldwide so far. This latest song with Eminem is strangely addictive despite, or is it because of, Eminem’s foul mouth. For this festive season of good will to all men and especially pretty women, Eminem – Love The Way You Lie ft. Rihanna is stuck in my head like bun-bun at the bottom of a pelau pot. I can be heard humming this song all day even in the bank, while in the shower, or driving through floods of unknown height. The lyrics suggest that Eminem is still a bitter man either because he is bitter or bitterness sells. Based on the lyrics from Love The Way You Lie, Eminem’s world is still not a happy world. Eminem, for those who don’t know him, is a modern-day, depressed poet with lyrical talent that will only be too apparent scores of years from now. Here is a sample of why he will be considered great in the future:

Just gonna stand there
And watch me burn
But that’s alright
Because I like
The way it hurts
Just gonna stand there
And hear me cry
But that’s alright
Because I love
The way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

I can’t tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now there’s a steel knife
In my windpipe
I can’t breathe
But I still fight
While I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right
It’s like I’m in flight
High of a love
Drunk from the hate
It’s like I’m huffing paint
And I love it the more that I suffer
I sufficate
And right before im about to drown
She resuscitates me
She f&*%%$#ing  hates me
And I love it
Where you going
I’m leaving you
No you ain’t
Come back
We’re running right back
Here we go again
It’s so insane…..

Maxim Models

Maxim Maazine CoverMaxim is a magazine for men containing women but not just any women but women who are role models for other women. Maxim models are famous for knowing many things, especially how to bend for the camera. This feat of bending while starving to stay slim has earned them more money in a day than the average male spends on beer in a lifetime. The women who have been lucky enough to have made it to Maxim are a combination of celebrities and those girls in the gym next door.

There is something about being adored by millions of men every month, which attracts attractive women to want to pose for Maxim. Maxim is not like Playboy so it doesn’t encourage magazine nudity in most countries. Maxim magazine is now published in the US, UK, Argentina, Chile, Brazil, India, Germany, Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Indonesia, Israel, Belgium, Romania, the Czech Republic, France, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Serbia, the Philippines, Singapore, Spain, Thailand, Ukraine, and Portugal. The women’s equivalent to Maxim is probably Better Homes and Gardens.

Men all over the world are the same and are attracted to the shape of shapely women. Maxim provides men with all the information they can understand about women in pictures. Maxim speaks the universal male language known as sexy in most countries and hotness in others. Some women consider the male obsession with looking and drooling over nearly nude, sexy women to be disgusting but most men are quite happy with this.

I doubt there will be a Maxim Trinidad and Tobago because local men don’t spend money on women on paper. We prefer the real women though that can also cost paper.

Will Chris Brown Hit Rihanna Again?

brownrihanna_dwgWill Chris Brown hit Rihanna again? Many people think he will.  A cbs5.com report on the Internet said “A Los Angeles police affidavit alleges that on Feb. 8, Brown punched, bit and choked Rihanna until she nearly lost consciousness.” A Yahoo report gave some more details. This was obviously no simple beating.

I am no expert but I think Mr Brown will hit again and he may hit harder and choke longer next time. If Rihanna is back with Chris Brown again it is probably her way of dealing with the embarassment of being beaten by the one she loves or loved. Rihanna probably wants to tell the world she is ok and ko(ed). The message Rihanna is sending to domestic violence victims is that it wasn’t so bad. The message she is sending to abusers like Chris Brown is give her your best shot. The experts, including Oprah, seem to think this is a bad and dangerous  move by Rihanna. I agree.

Beauty or Brains – Why Men Must Matter, I Hope

Freida Pinto

Freida Pinto

Freida Pinto, the Slumdog Millionaire sensation, was recently quoted as saying she wants to be more than just a pretty face. Freida Pinto may have read this blog some weeks ago which could be the reason for her recent statement. (If Rihanna and Sir Allen could read my blog why not Freida). Freida is lucky in that she is already known for more than her beauty and is also recognized for her talent and presence.

This blog recently conducted a survey where several women on the streets, in offices and in washrooms were asked if they would prefer to be beautiful or to be bright. Nearly all the women I approached asked if they could be both while several more called the police. I had to stress to the willing women it was either beauty or brains, since they were not men. The survey results showed 9 out of 10 women choose beauty. This is not surprising since the desire for women to be beautiful and be noticed has generated a multi-billion dollar industry with First World women probably spending more on anti-wrinkle creams than on the elimination of world hunger.

Ugly Betty

Ugly Betty

The modern woman is not like the ancient woman who would rather be admired on a pedestal while being fed grapes than consulted on world affairs or a cure for herpes. The modern woman wants to be sexy, beautiful and a professional. The enrollment of women in tight jeans and short skirts at universities now outweigh the enrollment of both beer-drinking and eligible males combined. The average woman in 2009 is now attractive, intelligent and pompous. The average woman no longer needs a man in her life to buy her grapes or underwear and makes he own decisions like which man to dump and which man to run over with her car in both directions. To the modern man, the modern woman is intimidating but even more attractive because of her aggression. Some men like it rough.

Men are no longer in great demand by women and this has not been easy for men to accept. Men were brought up to believe the King was the boss but the Queen was in charge. Men never fought this amusing role and played along out of fear of being nagged. Men are now no longer even Kings and are merely being used for sex by women when convenient. This sucks. Men were never meant to be used by women and this cannot go on for too much longer. I am writing this blog post in desperation and  hoping all demoralized men would read it and rally together to regain our rightful place in The Universe and in bed. Men, say no to being trampled on but mostly say no to convenient sex at those uhgodly hours.

Chris Brown Charged for Alledgely Assulting Rihanna

chris-brown-rihannaThe Los Angeles Police Department was reported to be investigating a Mr. Chris Brown for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, Robyn Rihanna Fenty( Rihanna) on Sunday. Both Mr. Chris Brown, and Rihanna  did not attend the Grammy awards last night and Rihanna was scheduled to perform. Rihanna has sold over 10 million song downloads for 2008, more than any other artiste. I am not sure how many Chris Brown sold and really don’t care.

Hopefully, this is just a rumor and it never happened. Hopefully this was a piece of mischief propagated by a press desperate for news and nothing more. But suppose it isn’t a lie. I didn’t see the booking sheet for Brown but it is being reported he is out on $50,000 bail.

Wouldn’t this be tragic if it were true. Another man beating a woman and it doesn’t matter if it was a tiny slap or not. I think the world doesn’t need another woman-beating male hero and who can sing and dance and display tattoos on his arm to prove his machismo. I have no idea what either Chris Brown or Rihanna is like in real life but surely violence by a man against a woman, any woman is a sign of male weakenss and a dysfunctional male brain. Surely, the life of celebrities are stressful but excuses are always too easy to find. I also have no doubt the the counseling of the male can work but I feel public shaming, a don’t buy CDs by the prepetrator and a long jail term would be close to appropiate justice. On a more opmistic note, this incident may not be true but I can’t find any evidence it isn’t.

The Most Beautiful Women of 2008

This video was produced by this blog on the 26th, December 2008 at around 9:00 p.m. It was done in association with boredom and it should not be considered complete. I selected only five women to include in this video since five is a manageable number for a video and possibly in life.

Some of the highlights of this video are the music from Kevin MacLeod and  two internationally known beauties from Trinidad and Tobago , Gabrielle Walcott – third place winner in  Miss World 2008 and Anya Ayoung-Chee – a  finalist in Miss Universe 2008.  Also included is Rosario Dawson – star of Seven Pounds and Freida Pinto – star of Slumdog Millionaire.  Rihanna needs no further introduction.


I recommend you look at this video in High Quality Mode at YouTube

Just click on the link at the bottom of the video screen which says watch in high quality. In HQ mode the video is better and the sound is in stereo.

Rihanna – Umbrella – The Song To Change All Songs

Most people would ask why don’t songwriters write good song any more and up to 2007 I was asking the same thing. But out of the blue, without warning, like a bolt of lightning on a cloudless day came the song to change all that. The song was Umbrella sung by the unbelievably gorgeous Rihanna who comes from our not so friendly neighbor, Barbados. I know you might be saying a song that calls itself Umbrella cannot be taken seriously but you only have to listen to it once or, better yet, look at the uncluttered Yahoo and Pepsi video version.

When you think about it, an umbrella is a very romantic device, and like many other romantic devices, it comes in several colors and sizes. Both lovers, and bedfellows can huddle under an umbrella in the rain, or they can use it to sneak a kiss pretending no one is secretly photographing the moment on a cell phone for blog purposes. Umbrellas have also been featured in many romantic movie scenes which I can’t remember the names of right now.

If you remain skeptical about the song just Google umbrella. If you want the lyrics just click this link. If you are in the mood for steamy romance I strongly recommend you try the Step 2 Naturally Playful Umbrella.There is nothing more to say about Umbrella other than just continue singing these infectious lines:

(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)
