“My photo shoots, album packaging and video shoots are very inspired by 60s and 70s fashion. My mother [Tina Knowles] always had great coffee table books. I looked specifically at The Supremes, Earth, Wind & Fire and Isley Brothers for fashion and it’s very apparent, I think.”

Rapper YO GOTTI is fighting allegations of drug possession after his tour bus was stopped and searched by border authorities in Texas on February 4, 2010.

Shawn Carter, the rap music artist and Rocawear clothing business founder known as Jay-Z, sued the investment firm Highland Capital Management LP in a dispute over loan guarantees.
Carter, in his complaint filed yesterday in federal court in New York, claims Highland and co-defendant NexBank SSB are attempting to “bleed” from him funds in excess of those he and two other men pledged to pay when they guaranteed the non- principal obligations of a company planning to build a hotel in Manhattan’s west side neighborhood of Chelsea.
Highland Capital, based in Dallas, was founded by James Dondero and Mark Okada in 1993. It oversees about $25 billion in assets, chiefly in credit markets. NexBank is based in the same city.
Highland and NexBank acted in bad faith when they declined to clear Carter and his fellow guarantors of their obligations after receiving a deed in lieu of foreclosure on the property, according to the complaint.
The rap star is seeking a declaratory judgment that he has met those obligations. He’s also seeking damages of more than $3.7 million for the additional interest and other costs incurred while still being held liable under the agreements.

Brooklyn-based makeup artist Roxanna Floyd, who made sure celebrities put their best face forward, has died. She was 49.
Her family gave no cause of death. She died in her sleep at her home in Clinton Hill.
Over a three-decade career, Floyd's artistry could be seen in motion pictures, on book jackets and on more than 200 magazine covers. She "worked on every continent, with the exception of Antarctica," her office said.
Her first celebrity client was Yoko Ono, and she went on to do 60 Essence covers, the first featuring Halle Berry.
She is survived by her husband, Rick Ramos; her mother, Alberta (Bertha) Floyd; one niece, and two nephews. A funeral will be held Saturday at Emmanuel Baptist Church, 279 Lafayette Ave. in Brooklyn.
