If you didn’t here are some photos from the event… some were tragedies others were just wonderful.. Check ’em out.

First let’s start with Heidi Klum and husbad Seal. Nice pair, but I wasn’t too thrilled with her dress. It’s a beautiful design but the bottom of it was a bit much for me.

Here we are with Christina Hendricks wearing a Christian Siriano design. Apparently the wave ruffle design is a hot fashion in Paris. Sorry to any fashion fanatics reading this.. I don’t know the exact name or style of this pattern.

Next we have Mr. Gerard Butler… us ladies love this man.

I love this woman.. Sandra Bullock.. but this Bottega Veneta mess of a dress did not compliment her talent at all. Maybe next year Sandra…

One of my favorite looks however…. Halle Berry wearing a Kaufman Franco beauty. Guys what do you think??

Another one of my favorite looks that night… Olivia Wilde, wearing a Gucci dress with Tiffany & Co. jewelry and a Judith Leiber clutch…. caliente!! Supposedly she will be auctioning this dress for Haiti relief.. how nice.

Here we have Emily Blunt in a pink chiffon Dolce & Gabbana dress and her fiance John Krasinski who made his own statement by wearing a navy tux.

Next is Neil Patrick Harris and his boyfriend David Burtka… first of all, I didn’t know that Neil was homosexual.. that’s pretty cool though. I like him. Kudos dude!

A music powerhouse, Beyonce and Jay-Z looked very nice at the Golden Globe Awards.

Finally, Marion Cotillard, whose wearing a lingerie-inspired Christian Dior dress… very beautiful.

Nice collabo!

Jay-Z No Longer Signed to Def Jam

By Kim Osorio

In an exclusive interview with Rapradar.com, Jay-Z confirmed that he is a free agent. The rapper/mogul cleared up the rumors that have been lurking on the internet, implying that Def Jam had bought him out.

“Doug [Morris] and I spoke directly and had one of the most unique ‘negotiations’ ever. Doug won the toss, but we both won in the end,” said Jay. “I thank him for allowing me to be a completely independent artist. Not every artist can say they own or are given the opportunity to own all of their music.”

Jay-Z stepped down from his post as President of Def Jam in December of 2007, after having served in the position for three years. When Jay-Z signed to the label as a solo artist back in the mid-90s, he was contractually bound to record ten albums for the label. Jay-Z has released nine albums on Def Jam, and was scheduled to release The Blueprint 3 later this year. No word as of yet where his next album will be released.

Jay summed up his relationship with Def Jam on a positive note. “I can honestly say, working with Doug Morris and L.A. Reid has been a unique and fulfilling experience and I respect them immensely. I’ve been in the family for almost my entire career.”
