Photos of the Day: Athletes Mimics Classic Album Covers

In ESPN The Magazine’s “Music Issue,” there is a fun feature on athletes impersonating popular album covers. We could not help but chuckle at a few of the photos because they imitated the poses almost perfectly. Take a look at gold medalists, Allyson Felix (track and field) as Beyoncé’s “Dangerously in Love” and Alex Morgan (soccer)as Katy Perry’s “One of the Boys”:

The perfect hairstyle coupled with an impeccable outfit is like lighting the candles on a beautifully crafted birthday cake. I don’t know about you, but when my hairdo isn’t right, my outfit just doesn’t seem complete. In order to avoid bad hair days,  I constantly search for hairstyles to try. Upon my recent online expedition, I discovered inspiration from some of my favorite songsTRESSES. These hairstyles are perfect all year-round, and will complete any look:

Stacy Barthe Sprinkles A Likkle Reggae Flavor in “Like It Is” {Video}

Stacy Barthe, the gifted songwriter behind the hits of Rihanna, Katy Perry and Britney Spears, knows how to create break-up songs that sound so good; danceable even. Her current single “Like It Is” from In the Inbetween EP, an ode to a steamy relationship that lost its fizzle, is not just another boring love song, and the visual matches the premise. Set on a beautiful island as Stacy portrays a carefree woman over the break-up, she joyrides on a speedboat, frolics in the sun, and smiles all while a photo of her and her lover (which is singer/songwriter Luke James) slowly burns.

In The Inbetween is now on iTunes.
