(now baby tell what you wanna do with me)



In this day and age, the words “I DO” seem to just be that, WORDS!

Feelings come and go, and what people feel today they don’t necessarily feel tomorrow. Celebrity relationships/marriages, are under high scrutiny! Merging the two brands together can either make, or break a career. But let’s face it, with everyone trying to hold on to their (15) minutes of fame, we have people marrying for business purposes and not love.

However, it is great to see two celebrities beat the odds, and keep their personal life PERSONAL.
Here are a few celebrity relationships that we admire here at SITYSCAPE, that keep it PERSONAL and sustain a high-profile career.

Mary J. Blige’s relationship have been the blueprint of good and bad. She’s lived it, and sang about her entire career. During the early 1990s, Blige was in a tumultuous relationship with K-Ci from Jodeci. The affair ended in 1997. Blige also briefly dated R&B singer Case. In 2000, Blige met record industry executive Martin Kendu Isaacs (known as “Kendu”) who became her manager. The two were married on December 7, 2003, in a small private ceremony at Blige’s home attended by 50 guests. (8) years later it’s still going strong, and Mary’s career is thriving.


Taking a page from Mary’s relationship book, Keyshia Cole has also been on the tumultuous relationship rollercoaters. She’s dated a few rappers, most noted In 2006 Young Jeezy, but the relationship ended after she declined a marriage proposal from him.
In March 2009, Cole began dating Daniel Gibson of the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers. and became engaged to him on January 1, 2010. On March 2, 2010, Cole gave birth to her first child, a boy, named Daniel Hiram Gibson Jr. On May 21, 2011, Cole and Gibson went to Cleveland for a private wedding ceremony. Cole stated on her Twitter that she is having an official wedding ceremony when she is done with her touring. Cole currently resides in Cleveland, Ohio and Johns Creek, Georgia.


Another R&B songstress has had her share of heartache as well. Monica’s career saw troubles in 1999, during which time she dealt with more personal tribulations including an up-and-down relationship with former fiancé Corey “C-Murder” Miller and the suicide of her boyfriend Jarvis “Knot” Weems, a local drug dealer and her childhood friend. On July 18, 2000, the couple were together at the graveside of Weems’s brother, who had died in an automobile accident at age 25 in 1998, when Weems, without warning, put a gun to his head and shot himself to death. Devastated, Monica spent the first few months after his death in denial and depression, later lessened by spiritual guidance from her parents. “Afterward, I felt, ‘What else could I have done?’ You replay that situation over and over and you switch it around: Maybe if I had said this, or if I would have done that,'” she said in an interview with the Enquirer the following year. “It’s just something that it’s never possible for me to go back and change.”

Arnold met rapper Rodney “Rocko” Hill, a former SWA officer and real estate manager, shortly after Knot’s suicide in 2000, a time which the singer described as her “weakest.” While the couple soon got engaged in fall of the same year, they ended their relationship in 2004 and Monica subsequently started dating G-Unit rapper Young Buck following his guest stint in her music video for “U Should’ve Known Better.” A few months later, Arnold and Hill revived their relationship and the singer became pregnant with their first child. On May 21, 2005, the pair welcomed their first son, Rodney Ramone Hill III, into the world. They became engaged once again on Christmas Eve 2007, just a few days prior to the birth of their second child on January 8, 2008. The son was named Romelo Montez Hill, named after Monica’s younger brother. In March 2010, it was announced that Arnold and Hill had split in October 2009, surrounding rumors that he cheated.

Since 2010, Arnold has been in a relationship with NBA player Shannon Brown. The pair met in June 2010 when Brown was consulted to star as her love interest in the music video for the single “Love All Over Me.” In October 2010, Arnold confirmed her engagement to Brown via Twitter, posting a photo of her massive, rose-cut diamond ring. On November 22, 2010, Arnold and Brown were married in a secret ceremony at their Los Angeles home. The marriage did however not become a matter of public record until January 21, 2011, when Brown told the Hip-Hop Non-Stop TV-Show. On July 9, 2011 the couple then held a second wedding in front of close family.


Now Kimora Lee Simmons relationships, haven’t been so tragic. It’s been FABULOUS for her. On December 20, 1998, Kimora married mogul Russell Simmons. They have two daughters; Ming Lee Simmons (born January 21st 2000) and Aoki Lee Simmons (born August 16th 2002). Kimora and Russell officially separated in March 2006. Although the couple had split some time before, they continued to live together up to this point.

By March 2007, Kimora was dating actor and model Djimon Hounsou, and in March 2008, she filed for divorce from Russell. The divorce was finalized in January 2009.
In the summer of 2008, Kimora and Hounsou participated in a traditional Benin wedding ceremony, and in May 2009, their son, whom they named Kenzo Lee Hounsou was born. She established the Kimora Lee Simmons Scholarship Fund at her high school alma mater in St. Louis to provide college tuition support for academically successful girls with financial needs and is an active member of youth advocacy organizations including Amfar, The G&P Foundation, Keep a Child Alive, Hetrick-Martin Institute and Rush Philanthropic where she is on the Board of Directors. The mayor of St. Louis presented Simmons the key to the city and named March 18, 2008 “Kimora Day” in St. Louis. Now that’s what I mean by living FABULOUS!


Now, Rapper Jay-Z and DIVA’s Beyonce’s relationship is definitely one for the books.
In 2002, Jay-Z and Knowles collaborated for the song “’03 Bonnie & Clyde”. Jay-Z also appeared on Knowles’ hit single “Crazy In Love” and as well as “That’s How You Like It” from her debut Dangerously in Love.

On her second album, B’Day, he made appearances on the 2006 hits, “Déjà Vu” and “Upgrade U”. In the video for the latter song, she comically imitates his appearance. The couple generally avoid discussing their relationship. Knowles has stated that she believes that not publicly discussing their relationship has helped them. Jay-Z said in a People article, “We don’t play with our relationship.” They keep a low public profile despite being photographed at New Jersey Nets home and while on vacation in Cannes in 2007.

On April 4, 2008, it was reported by People that Knowles and Jay-Z had been married at a private ceremony in New York City. It became a matter of public record on April 22, 2008, but Knowles did not publicly debut her $5 million Lorraine Schwartz-designed wedding ring until the Fashion Rocks concert on September 5, 2008 in New York City. Knowles and Jay-Z were listed as the most powerful couple for TIME magazine’s 100 most influential people of 2006. In January 2009, Forbes ranked them as Hollywood’s top-earning couple, with a combined total of $162 million. They also made it to the top of the list the following year, with a combined total of $122 million between June 2008 and June 2009. At the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, Beyoncé revealed that she is pregnant with her and Jay-Z’s first child. Her representative confirmed the news that night.


Now that’s what we call being “crazy in love” and getting a “upgrade.”
Everyone keep hope alive!
There’s love out there for us all, we just have to go through the run of the mill before we find our special someone.


20110906-123757.jpgWould you like to see what’s in my closet? Too late, I’ve been out of that closet for years, but celebrities wouldn’t mind you taking a peek inside theirs. One sides couture, and the others everyday, but still glamorous. Celebrity closets are broken down into designers. Valentino, Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Versache just to name a few. There’s also a break down in seasons, and don’t forget the rows, and rows of shoes. Designer shoes needs their own zip code. There’s colors, seasons, straps, or strapless. Which shoe goes with what, how many times that shoe has been worn. Just think about the stylist who has to maintain that closet. It is a demanding job, and not for the faint of heart. I myself, like most non-celebrities like a big closet, and keep it manicured on a lower scale. I know one day when I am making racks-on-racks-on-racks, I’ll be just as anal about my designer duds in my closet.
