Here at KingstonToLA, even though we love a good old pint of Guinness, we went searching for our own pot of gold. We went deep within the lush green isle of Jamaica (via the internet), and found 5 hidden isle treasures.

Amber Rose has become a figure of empowerment and social justice awareness for women around the world. Yes you read that correctly.
New York Fashion Week is that week-long party you just can’t escape. It’s all over everybody’s timeline as a friendly reminder: you’re not there and missing all the fun. Having never been to NYFW, I feel that tinge of jealousy every time. KingstontoLA is planning for next year, but until then we’ll continue to admire the fashion, the celebrity parties and new models from afar. We’ve got the round up on our top moments from the most recent NYFW.
If you haven’t already heard, Action Bronson’s rap style sounds eerily similar to rap legend’s Ghostface Killah. So much so Killah has mistaken Bronson’s raps for his own. True story. Most recently, Bronson was interviewed on ESPN’s “SportsNation,” when he was asked about this similarity in tone-rap style. Bronson responded with “He’s not rapping like this no more.” Uh oh. Shots fired.
It seems as if America has a new most hated person every week. Some weeks it’s Mike Tyson, another week it’s the police, many weeks it’s Barack Obama, the list goes on. This week America’s most hated goes to Chloe Bartoli. Unfortunately for the French born stylist, pics surfaced of her hanging out with Scott Disick in Monte Carlo this past weekend. The two can be seen stroking each other’s backs, feeding each other pasta and sunbathing together on a lounge chair too close for comfort.
We’ve known Bruce Jenner as the patriarch of the Kardashian brand for years. A former Olympic star that legends were made of. Recently, Bruce Jenner made that legend status larger. The reality TV star got real real in an exclusive interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer. In the much anticipated interview, Bruce revealed that he’s had the soul of a woman ever since he could remember, and will be making a transition to a woman publicly. No longer keeping this a secret from the public eye.
Kylie Jenner & Tyga have finally put the rumors to rest. The 17-year-old posted an animated shot of herself alongside her 25-year-old beau. We’re not judging but we’re thinking it’s official. Kylie will celebrate her 18th birthday this August. She’s all grown up y’all!
She’s all grown up! Pop superstar Rihanna, burst onto the scene in 2005 with her hit single “Pon de Replay.” Remember those daze?! Well the singer turns 27 today! In unison let’s all wish her a BLESSED EARTHSTRONG. She’s doing so well for herself, especially since her split from CB. Just saying. HAPPY BIRTHDAY RI RI!!
Drama! Get your popcorn for the latest round of internet beef. It all started when Amber Rose went on The Breakfast Club morning show, where she was asked what she thought of Kylie Jenner dating Tyga (Rose is good friends with Tyga’s ex and baby mama Blacc Chyna). We think her response was a little too candid but oh well, c’est le vie. Rose flat out stated, “She’s a baby, she needs to go to bed at 7 o’clock and relax yeah … that’s ridiculous he [Tyga] should be ashamed of himself.
Chicken Gunya? Sounds like a dance craze or an exotic meal. Right? Well it’s not. It’s a mosquito born illness that is blowing through the Caribbean. There have been over one million cases of Chikungunya in the Caribbean, with the virus spreading rampantly in countries such as Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and St. Martin. According to Carib Journal, Jamaica declared a national state of emergency in October 2014, when more than two thirds of the population contracted the virus in a very short time. Thankfully for some Caribbeans, Lindsay Lohan has been able to bring attention to the illness after recently contracting the virus while on vacation in the French Polynesian islands.
The Battery Co. in association with Rockwell-LA debuted the smashing first episode of “Los Feliz 90027” this week. The much anticipated new theatre dramedy is the hippest soap opera since … well we’ll get back to you on that. The show written and directed by Jake Wilson is an uber-unique blend of half-filmed, half-live performances and we’re pretty sure that’s never been done before. What’s even more interesting is the show’s hip, young and super attractive cast.
Damnnnnn! TheFatJewish, as he is known to his one million plus followers on Instagram, recently made some scathing remarks about Jay Z and Beyonce’s offspring. Though he is known for his incendiary commentary and no one is ever safe, this one tops the cake. Alongside a pic-stitched photo of the two-year-old and a pretty young “version” of Beyonce, TheFatJewish wrote, “Did anyone else think Blue Ivy was going to look like a caramel skinned princess and not a 32 year old lesbian with a criminal record?”
Pretoria SOUTH AFRICA – Embattled Paralympian Oscar Pistorius has been sentenced to five years in prison following a verdict of culpable homicide on Septemebr 11. The athlete learned his fate early Tuesday, after the conclusion of a lengthy murder trial in the shooting death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
Pretoria SOUTH AFRICA – Onetime South African sports hero Oscar Pistorius, has now seen the conculsion of his very well publicized fall from grace. The paralympic sprinter charged with the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, will finally know his fate when he is sentenced on Tuesday, October 21. The trial eerily mirrors that of American sports celebrity O.J. Simpson. Judge Thokozile Masipa’s not guilty verdict on Septemebr 11, sparked public outcry in the African nation and arguably worldwide. Pistorius was later found guilty on the lesser charge of culpable homicide.
The Emergency USA Org is doing their part to strike out Ebola by debuting their new End Ebola Now campaign. The Emergency USA Org made a name for themselves after recently assisting with the release of two Ebola survivors in Sierra Leone and are currently running one of the ONLY fully-functioning hospitals in the West African nation. Emergency USA can also be credited with opening the first Ebola treatment center near Sierra Leone’s capital, Freetown and are currently building another nearby.
Pretoria, SOUTH AFRICA – After 41 court-days of a trial that has extended several months and many of my own personal pseudo-legal judgments, Oscar Pistorius has been found NOT GUILTY for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp. It was a big day for South Africa as Judge Thokozile Masipa finally delivered her controversial decision. Disappointingly for many, Masipa views Pistorius’ version as true. Yep no “dolus evantualis” in this case. No premeditation for sure. The law is a finicky thing because Pistorius was actually not required to prove his innocence. Instead the burden always falls on the state to prove guilt. Intuition doesn’t matter. Now we wait to see if justice will come in the form of a lengthy prison sentence. And while vengeance wont bring Reeva back I still hope to see Pistorius pay for what he did.
