Shelley Darlington gets thrown out of the Playboy Mansion and she has no where to go.She eventually finds herself at a sorority house, Zeta Alpha Zeta. Her new housemates are classified as 'geeks' and on top of this they are being threatened to lose their house, unless they gain popularity. Will Shelley use her magic?

da L.E.S

Da L.E.S also known as Leslie Mampe is a south african Hip-Hop artist. He gained popularity around 2005 and 2006 as a member of "JOZI". Having released his debut album, "Fresh2Def" in June 2008, he has been able to highlight his style and unique sound (some may argue against this) . The leading tracks from his album such as "Tippy Toes" and "Fire", have been blasting on national radio stations and leading television stations such as Channel O and MTV Base Africa.

Da L.E.S is a reflection of his music because when you see him, you see what he is depicting through his tunes...candy, style,colour, commerciality and innovation.

Now sweet and sour 101 would love for y'all to share your opinions on this :

What do you think about Da L.E.S?

Big Brother Africa 3

Twelve housemates under one roof,who would have thought that this concept would create such hysteria and excitement. Big brother Africa has proved to be a phenomenon; this show has allowed africans to unite both indirectly and directly. With the wonderful creation of instant messaging viewers have been given an opporunity to voice their opinions about the show as well as on the housemates.

Africans gather with anticipation in front of their televison screens waiting to see which housemate will take the grand prize of USD 100 000. Will it be Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Uganda, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia or Zimbabwe.

The third season of Big Brother seems to have gained much more support and the housemates are living up to the motto for this year " wicked,wild and wacky". All of their different characters add flavour.

Hooray to D&G spring / summer ' 09 Collection, Milan

Flowing dresses, high waisted shorts, scarves,hats and high wedges are what highlighted Dolce and Gabbana's collection for spring/summer 2009. Their signature stamp of drawing from what inspires them most; 40s and 50s fashion was shown. Classic colours of blue and red seemed to overshadow in what they had to offer.

This collection as a whole was very feminine and suitable for everyday wear,especially for women who want to be both fashionable but comfortable at the same time. High-end fineness at its best, loosened fabrics for the dresses, stripes for most of the pants as well as shapes and patterns.

Another striking feature were the accessories...the colourfully rimmed sunglasses,patent handbags coated in rich cololurs and as mentioned above, the 'scarves'. The scarves seemed to be the most important items when adding the finishing touches to a majority of these outfits; smalls scarves fasted in a little cute bow to the neck!

Truly sweet xoxo

M.I.A - "legend in the making"

British/Sri Lankan singer,producer,songwriter and visual artist M.I.A (Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam) is truely a "legend in the making".Her uniqueness,creativity and political side have led to her making music that is both different and enjoyable. She addresses worldy issues with a flare of humour and M.I.A has the ability to draw attention with her retro multi-coloured clothes.

Her debut album Arular which was released in 2005 recieved a lot attention. The individuality of this album came from the mixture of dancehall,hip-hop,electro and punk music. This cocktail of sound made celebrities such as Nas and Gwen Stefani (who she toured with in 2005) notice her.

Her second album Kala released in 2007 was very much controversial because she came about it with a hard hitting,realistic approach to problems facing the world. In this album she added other genres such as soca and rave.

What makes most people love and appreciate M.I.A is that she is a humanitarian at heart.She has been very outspoken when it comes to talking about the relationship between the first and third world.

M.I.A is what's hot, sweet, hip and happening right now!
