When I heard on Twitter I turned on the TV and searched the net right away. I was confused. I believed MJ died and then I didn't until CNN confirmed . They were the last to confirm. I felt weak, broke out in cold sweat and cried a few tears. My sister'swho are 4 and 5 years younger than me didn't understand why I reacted that way. I honestly did not think I would've reacted the way I did. Our generation experienced something really special. Unlike my sisters I was a Michael Jackson fan since I could remember. My dad would buy me stickers, books, magazines, records, anything that had to do with MJ, my dad would bring it home for me. My favorite song was BAD. Everytime I hear it , I am taken back to my 4th bday party . When that was all I wanted to hear. That was all my parents would play for me ,on a reg day at home, I was an addict for BAD.

This kind of grievance has also been an experience. We are grieving and celebrating his life with the world. It's not just with our family and close friends. While others are over it. There are other's out there like myself who are still in disbelief. Who woke up this morning and asked themselves "did that really happen? Is he really gone?" It's ok for us to feel this way and it's ok for others to not. We all loved and appreciated MJ on all different levels. I know someone who's even a bigger fan than I am, and I know for sure that she must be feeling it more than I am. For some he was just Michael Jackson and for others he was an Idol, a Legend, an inspiration, someone we would turn to , to make us feel good. MJ's music always made me feel good. and it still will. My mind goes blank and I just enjoy the moment without thinking of anything but the song and taking in that moment. I am asking that you respect the feelings of others. You may have not felt the same about him but to the majority of us he will always be kept close to our hearts.

Dear Diary:

A couple of nights ago I was at work speaking to one of my co-workers. She was telling me about The Secret . She had just finished watching the movie and felt like her life was changing already. The next morning as I was searching for a book to buy my dad the first thing that popped under the search was The Secret. I did a little research. I ordered the movie through Netflix and dragged my family to Barnes and Nobles with me before Father's day dinner. I started reading it as soon as I got into the car and started applying some of "the secret" to my life right away. One thing I decided to do was to not sympathize or agree with complaints. The truth is that The more complaining you do and the more you surround yourself with people who complain, you will attract more things to complain about. I really feel great and a lot of good has been coming my way. Here is a 20 minute clip from The Secret:

Just now I started reading my 2009 horoscope book which I used to read every morning. I need to get back into that habit. My horoscope for last Friday reads:
Although you may appear to be a big time party animal, at heart you may actually be a workaholic, which could be running your life right now. If you have allowed negative habits to become all-consuming, acting now to discard unhealthy practices can be rewarding. Your willpower and motivation to stick with a plan are strong.

Sunday's Horoscope reads:
The resources of other people , financial security , and romantic encounters are emphasized throughout the next four weeks, with forward progress being made in these areas.

Today's horoscope reads:

Positve cosmic patterns outnumber unhelpful influences as this new working week begins.

I'll keep you posted on how my life is going living by "the secret".

Putting you on to some Dominican Music

As I was walking to the door of our apartment I was listening to the loud music my upstairs neighbor had on. I swore it was an old playero song because of the beat. Then my sister started chanting " PEPE PEPE." I was like "WTF is that ?" "You don't know about 'PEPE?'" She tuned me in by showing me this You tube video:

This took place in DR. (yes this is how some of us get down in DR. Parties in the streets all day everyday) I couldn't believe the reaction to this song. The truth is that it is not saying much, but yet it's a hit and it makes you want to do the "PEPE" dance. I didn't even know there was a "PEPE" dance. I just started dancing to it and it just happened that I started moving to the beat the same way everyone else was. It just came naturally to me. So i started clicking around You tube and found the video:

I still don't understand what the song is about, but I still want to dance to it. Like I said earlier the beat reminds me of Playero music I would dance to at high school hookie parties or the usual house parties. I have realized that this beat is coming back again with a different name: Dembow. Two more songs that are hot right now are :

Free Bicycle riding !

On the sunny days that we do get in NYC , I always wish I had a bike to ride around in. The problem is that there is no space in the apartment. My prayers have been answered. Top Shop is offering free bike rentals from 12 to 9pm daily this summer. Rentals can be an hour long or a whole day long . How cool is that . I can't wait to grab my girls to go bike riding! Can the sun come out first though ?

My freewill horoscope for this week :

Metaphorically speaking, Sagittarius, you have unearthed or are about to unearth a rare fossil. I think it's a pretty sensational discovery. It's a missing link that could help you make sense out of episodes in your past that have always mystified or frustrated you. I urge you to learn all you can about this fossil. Follow every lead it points to. And ask your intuition to run wild and free as it dreams up possible interpretations to its multiple meanings.

Toby Love's Tu y Yo video shoot featuring Girlz Talk

Yesterday I had the pleasure of working with Girlz Talk on the set of Toby Love's Tu y Yo Video. The video is based on a very interesting theme that I will not disclose. All I have to say is that I can not wait to check out the video.

Motivated and Inspired

All these rainy and cloudy days have put me in a rut. Once again I was feeling stuck and uninspired. The sun came out a little last Friday afternoon . All of a sudden all these ideas were flowing through my mind . I have been busy trying to turn these ideas into reality. It's a lot of hard work but when you want something, no work is too hard and everything else can wait . I am having so much fun with all my projects these days it's like I don't need anything else to make me happy right now. Work , work , and work is on my mind .

"All up 2 U" Aventura featuring Akon and Wisin y Yandel

" The Last"

I have been an Aventura fan from the beginning. I am a fan of great music, especially music I can relate to and feel in my heart. From the beginning I have fallen head over heels for all of Aventura's songs. Sometimes I sing at the top of my lungs and other times I just sit back and take it all in while reminising on my past and thinking about my present, as I am doing now. "The Last" is a great album. With words like "Dile al amor que no toque mi puerta" and "me fui de vacaciones lejos de los amores" I can't resist playing it over and over. I mean , that is not how I feel at the moment , but I there was a time when I did feel like that and the song Dile Al Amor expressed exactly how I once felt. These guys did it to me again. They've kept it how it has been from the beginning but with a little bit of spice, for example the merengue song and Henry's voice :o). Here I am @ 2:13am hooked , I might even fall asleep listening to "The Last". There hasn't been a song from these guys that I've ever skipped. I want front seat tickets for their concert! This Album is a must . Go get that shit today!

FYI: Album signing Today @ 4pm @ the Best Buy in Soho.

No Vogue cover for Rihanna ...

So apparently Anna Wintour came across the naked Rihanna pics and has stopped answering her calls. Wintour was very fond of Rihanna before her knowledge of the leaked pictures. This is why I have always promised myself to never have tasteless pics of myself. You never know what hands they will fall in and you never know if it will affect a future opportunity. Sad to say, but Rihanna ... You blew it.

Oh these slump times...

According to an article I just read in the New York Magazine Fashion section , the recession has now caused cutbacks in plus size clothing. Many stores have stopped offering or have been selling a limited amount of plus sized pieces. The reason for this being that it costs twice as much to produce clothing over a size twelve. Ladies don't freak out now.Though you may not be able to purchase the ussual amount of plus size designer pieces, Forever 21 has launched their own plus size line a couple of weeks back . They have cute pieces for reasonable prices. Go check it out now.
