Over the weekend, The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) hosted its 25th Annual Rhythm & Soul Music Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. The star-studded event, which was attended by hundreds of songwriters, recording artists and music industry leaders, paid special tribute to Quincy Jones and Pharrell Williams, and honored the songwriters and publishers of the most performed ASCAP songs on the 2011 R&B/Hip-Hop, Rap and Gospel charts.
Over the BET Awards weekend, Lala Vasquez celebrated her birthday with a private brunch at Los Angeles’ Bagatelle. Sponsored by X-Rated Fusion Liqueor, attendees included celebrity friends (Travis London, Eva Marcille, Kalenna Harper, Tami and actress Nadine Ellis), media personalities (folks from TheYBF, Necole Bitchie, Global Grind), close friends (Po) and socialites. In addition to food and drinks, the event included an intense cake-decorating contest. From the looks of things (and the release form that we signed), Lala was filming for an upcoming episode of her VH1 reality show, “Lala’s Full-Court Life”. As guests departed, they were treated to gift bags filled with makeup from Motives for La La, Kimberly Kimble hair products, and goodies from X-Rated Fusion Liqueur. Peep some of the
