Dawn Richard Rocks Preppy Photoshoot For Aritzia + Emeli Sande Rocks Out On "Today"

With her Goldenheart album debuting at the #1 spot on iTunes R&B/Soul Charts, the album also charted at #10 on Billboard's R&B Album Charts.  So Dawn Richard has a lot to celebrate these days.  Check out her new photoshoot with Aritzia inside, plus Emeli Sande rocking out on "The Today Show"...

The fiery and solo chick put aside her armour to channel her cute preppy side for the Aritzia clothing brand.  And about her successful solo debut, she said:

“To see these reviews and charts were overwhelming.  My team knows how hard I am on myself because I want us to be great. I'm always thinking if we are going too far, stretching ourselves too thin. Will they understand it? They did. Both the 'hearts' and critics. We created a project that was not conventional R&B yet it met both critics and the 'hearts' expectations.”

The N.O. native snapped a few cute pics for the brand, and she revealed the tattoo she got when she decided to go solo: three wings merged together which cover her whole back in deep, dark ink, the result of three 10-hour sessions.

“I wanted something that exemplified extreme flight,” she explains. Underneath the wings and stamped down her spine is old Sanskrit message, which translates as “mastered, blessed, saved, beautiful, a force.” She smiles. “And if those things are in alignment, then I am perfect.”

Check out the pics below:

Nice. 

 

 

And speaking of R&B chicks we're loving these days, UK singer Emeli Sande has been making her mark here in the states.  The 25-year-old blonde cutie performed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London and also helped Alicia Keys write her newest hit "Brand New Me."  And she's got a few hit songs of her own that she performed on "The Today Show" this morning:

Well I'm happy for her.

Well I'm happy for her. However I don't like the pigeon toed, no hips look. Also, who is buying her album? I don't buy albums until I've heard some good music off of it,,,,,unless the artist is a reputable artist. None theless, I am happy for her and maybe her songs will get some radio play.

WTF? Why would you get on a

WTF? Why would you get on a blog just to bash Dawn? How did an interview about her music turn into comments about how she looks, dress, body shape etc.. Not one of you who said something negative is even known... FOH! And to the person who said her music is booty, you clearly don't know real talent. Her EP Armor On went #1 on Itunes and her latest album #Goldenheart went #1 as well. Take a listen before you start bashing her talent. She more talented than majority of the crap that we hear on the radio but because the media can brainwash people, some actually believe the ish they listening to is fire!!!She happens to be one of the realest and humble celebrities out there right now. She connects with her fans(hearts). Beautiful inside and out. Y'all make me sick going in on her like that. Give her props for going #1 with no label behind her.
