Devon doesn’t think she’s a black model cause she’s “fair skinned” and has an “international look”
I remember that shit like it was yesterday. She was fuckin’ floored.
Floored…like she wasn’t the best singer that side of the Atlantic.
I still cry when I see this! I miss her so much!

In February HotHouse Club will be experiencing a female takeover with fierce guests SUKI BEDEAUX and DANA JADE. This night will be dedicated to the ladies who have pushed the R&B / hip-hop / pop boundaries.
SUKI BEDEAUX / REAL HOT DJ
Suki Bedeaux is pretty much HotHouse family! She is a DJ, producer & singer from Brixton. Suki created heat in 2012 with her ‘Booom’ mixtape, regular show on Nasty FM and debut solo single ‘Him and Me’. Suki is also a member of electro grime girl group The Real Heat and has been featured in the NME cool list.

Dana was born in Trinidad, grew up in New York and now lives in London – this unique upbringing means she’s not afraid to fuse soca with punk or rock with reggae. Following a stint in female alt-choir Gaggle, Dana released her debut solo album last year to strong critical acclaim: “Attitudinal, bluesy punk ‘n’ roll.” – Time Out; “Fierce new rock siren” – Gaydar Nation. Dana also helps to organise Clit Rock a night to support charity Daughter’s of Eve in their quest to end FGM.

HotHouse resident and one half of Music is My Boyfriend. m.d.g. has been a guest at some of East London’s hottest alternative nights and promoted his own shows featuring acts such as Afrikan Boy, The Death Set, CocknBullKid, Ebony Bones!, Joe and Will Ask, Teeth, Feral is Kinky, Gay Against You and many more. Credited as “defiantly fashionable” by Time Out and “great taste” by the Guardian Guide.

PHOTO OF THE WEEK: Grace Coddington, Creative Director of Vogue and former model releases her memoir, of which she speaks about the “Twiggy” eye makeup:
“There was a craze for ‘panda’ eyes. Each girl had her own individual style when it came to piling on the makeup. My particular thing was to draw an extra-wide stroke emphasizing the crease of the eye socket and add extravagantly long, spidery lines below the eye, a little like doll’s lashes, then paint a dot toward the inner corner for reasons I can’t exactly articulate except that it looked nice and “now.” Later I discovered my crazy new eyelash look being called “twiglets” and credited to the young British model Twiggy. Well, they were very much mine. I was probably doing them before she was born!”

Parks and Recreations’ Aziz Ansari shuts down a microaggression on the Golden Globes’ red carpet.
-Giuliana Rancic: Maybe you can show me [a few dance moves]. I think you have good rhythm.
Aziz Ansari: I have good rhythm? Based on my chocolate skin tone?
Giuliana Rancic: [laughs] No, not based on your very beautiful—
Aziz Ansari: Indian men know how to dance really well. I know it’s a stereotype… This is a move called “What?! That’s racist, don’t say that again.”
