I've been into a lot of old school movies lately and the other day I was watching James bond a view to kill, i believe it's called. I was looking up Grace Jones, one of my Idols, and I couldn't believe who she used to date. Anyway have you ever thought to yourself how odd a match some celebrities in the past have been?, slightly cringe worthy, but hey- we are all in titled to fall in love with anyone we choose too, but i just wanted to share in my opinion some of the odd ball couples I've found:

i love to dance and it's a real shame I couldn't become a professional dancer :-( but I did do talent shows, so know permanent damage done :-). Just like music, i'm completed obsessed with dancing too. Whilst browsing through my latest obsession (again) dancing........(I really don't know what i would do without YouTube), I found these great clips of "real dancers" mostly all street dancers, with no professional training at all, you may some of recognise them. I love street dancers because you see raw emotions and passion, something I don't think you can see in a dance studio.
When i watch programmes like Randy Jackson's American Dance Crew, I enjoy it, but their is nothing like an old school dancer. I salute all the lockers, poppers, breakers, wacckers, tappers, freestylers and even the square dancers around the world who keep these art forms alive!!.
Here are some of my favourite dancing quotes: "Dancing: the vertical expression of a horizontal desire legalized by music". ~George Bernard Shaw
"Dancers are instruments, like a piano the choreographer plays". ~George Balanchine
"I see dance being used as communication between body and soul, to express what it too deep to find for words". ~Ruth St. Denis
"Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels". ~Faith Whittlesey
If you enjoy the art of dance like me, here are some great clips, courtesy of YouTube, enjoy :-)

A shot from my window, showing parts of the stunning Dubai skyline, taken by photo booth!- anyways..........
I've been away from the Laptop for two weeks now because I've been living it up in Dubai(pics and video to come soon). I've had a fantastic time, and really didn't want to come back-but London is home for me. It has also been life changing, so watch this space. Moving on......here's a video of the Dubai desert, not edited but I just wanted to share it.
Note: Sorry about the sound quality, that's my best friend looking oblivious ha
