Grammys

Kim Porter, Estelle, Marvet BritoI had so many productive meetings in LA. My side passion as a film producer is really beginning to blossom. Being a visionary allows me to apply my skill set to a plethora of offerings and I take full advantage of each blessing. So I had my usual whirlwind of meetings as I octopus my way through life as what I call a talented slash publicist/brand strategist/film producer! Met with one of the most influencial men in Hollywood and took mental notes as I always do. Less talking more digesting the food I was being fed.

While in LA we designed a lunch in anticipation of Estelle’s highly anticipated follow-up album “All of Me “at Philippe Chow hosted by Kim Porter and attended by some fab media, tastemakers and influencers. We previewed tracks. We had a fun and festive time celebrating an artist who is emerging and ready to bring her cutting edge swagger to a whole new level.

Whenever I am in LA I visit Kim and the girls at her beautiful new estate which her friends have dubbed “Pretty Peach Palace”. So during my first jaunt to LA for the new year I stayed at the palace and really enjoyed spending quite time with the girls. I read them their favorite book the “Doobies” which was created by my friend NV Magazine owner Kyle Donovan. The Doobee’s uses bees to teach kids that they can be whatever they want to bee!

I attended the Lionsgate party at the Beverly Hills hotel for the movie Precious which is a film that I support and was very much apart of that was produced and directed by Lee Daniels who I produced my first 2 films “The Woodsman” and “Shadowboxer” with. Precious is a adapation from the book “Push” written by Sapphire. After she saw the movie Shadowboxer she decided to allow Lee who had previously expressed interest in the book the right to turn the book into a film trusting him after many others had approached her over the years for the rights to do the same only for her to refuse.
