I’d changed clothes after performing my first solo #1 single “Looking For A New Love” to perform “Still a Thrill.” I loved that funky top hat which I’d purchased in Japan – my style always represents what I’m feeling. I still rock denim and ankle boots but wear them differently..the bra tops, not so much!
I have so many favorite traditions that my daughter and son have over the years, from baking and decorating cookies, watching a “Charlie Brown Christmas” together and playing the CD which to us really kicks off the spirit of the season. One of our other traditions was the tree trimming party – in the spirit of “Nightlife” that’s the one I shared with Hip Hop Weekly. Christmas and the holiday season isn’t as hectic as it used to be now that my children are young adults. That said, it’s still a time for family, giving and remembering what’s most important in life — it’s really not about the gifts, although I miss Christmas mornings when my kids were little and waking up to see the presents under the tree and that half eaten cookie left for ‘Santa.’
“One of my favorite holiday traditions is to have a tree trimming party. It starts with a great music playlist which is the key to any party, along with good food. Everyone brings an ornament and hangs it on the tree. Over the years I’ve ended up with some amazing ornaments that always evoke a special feeling and a reminder of that person.”
There are two lyric videos for “Nightlife” the first for the single edit, and then the Moto Blanco Remix, currently #14 Pop in The UK and one of the remixes propelling the single upward on the Billboard Hit Dance Club Play Chart.
Make-up artist Billy B and I collaborated on a first of it’s kind music video make-up tutorial, beauty photo session , watch the MakeUpMusitorial preview here
There are also quite a few fan made “Nightlife” videos to be found as well from various parts of the world.
At last we filmed the official video yesterday on the Sunset Strip and inside my favorite club on earth Bryan Rabin and Adam Xll present Giorgio’s – A Modern Discotheque. I’ve been writing about Girogio’s here on sharing on Facebook and Twitter for months now and so it seem fitting and authentic to film there. Much like my classic “Friends” video it’s eclectic, stylish and full of friends and real people having a fabulous time – and of course there was a lot of ‘waacking’ going on and a special touch of classic iconography by the the attendance of actor and Andy Warhol star Joe Dallesando and renowned hair stylist Teddy Antolin, pictured in black and white photo below.
“Nightlife” the official video is directed by Steven Willis with make-up by Billy B. More details soon! Most everyone has graciously donated their time for this out of love.
“NIGHTLIFE” is available at iTunes, Amazon, Beatport, Traxsource and other select outlets: Original single edit, Extended Glamour EP and Nightlife Remixed.
It was a gorgeous New York day and appropriate to sit down with Editor and Chief of Uptown Magazine and host of the new “ICONIC” Uptown Unplugged Isoul Harris.

A bit of LA Nightlife at Instyle and The Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s “Miss Golden Globes” Party. This year’s choice was the daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgewick Sosie.
I was giddy as a school girl seeing many from the Scandal cast (Casper Smart aka “Harrison”, Scott Foley aka “Jake”, Jeff Perry aka “Cyrus” and Darby “Stanchfield aka “Abby.” Mark Wahlberg was also in the house, along with actress and comedian Mindy Kaling from “The Office” and “The Mindy project.” In these situations, I’m like anyone other person who gets excited when you see people you recognize and like. Not wanting to be a bother, I only asked for one photo.
For my #TBT #ThrowbackThursday #Classic as well as #FashionFriday – 1 page of a 16 page layout for Saks Fifth Avenue Catalog from ’96. The photo’s and style from these sessions are all very timeless – which always appeals to me. Working with legendary photographer Skrebneski made me nervous, but he put me at ease making it a memorable and fun experience.
