Decades of hits, influence in style, fashion meets music in early celebrity ad campaigns, high profile editorial features, the first artist to introduce the rap/sung formula Pop/R and B, Dance with Hip Hop Rap on the groundbreaking multi format Crossover hot “Friends” featuring Eric B & Rakim – a formula that continues to dominate commercial music and ended up with a category of its own at The Grammys by The Recording Academy in the 90’s to being ranked by Billboard Magazine as one of the Greatest Dance Club Artists Of All Time in 2016 and still going strong – Jody Watley is not only one of the music s most enduring and versatile stars as well she is one of Grammys Best New Artist success stories.
As a former Best New Artist recipient and nominee in 1988, here I am at The Grammy Awards in 1993 to present Best New Artist. The winner that year was Toni Braxton.
I’m wearing a Jody Watley designed original as most of you know I’ve been primarily self styled over the years and designed many of my outfits.
With the phenomenal and incomparable Eartha Kitt – respect and honor today on her born day and always.
Definitely was incredible to meet her in the 90’s on VH1’s The Rupaul Show.
