Jessie J covered Rihanna’s We Found Love for the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge 17th Feb 2012.
Thanks for spicing it up with us for our first bollywood night at LAVISH! It was a huge success and we had a blast putting the whole themed event together! Although themed events require much more time, effort and money, it’s so worth it when 12:30 strikes and the ‘stars are aligned’ for a quick 5 minutes:
1. The decor
2. The packed club
3. People dancing to the bollywood jam
4. The bollywood show starts
5. …And then the crowd goes wild!
Most people don’t even recollect this “magical moment” (LOL), but I soak in those 5 minutes like no other and that makes the extra effort worth it! Normally mid-January is when LAVISH does the ‘Garden Of Eden’ party but we wanted to mix it up a bit and I couldn’t resist Bollywood! Saturday started out with a shopping trip to purchase pink and orange fabric. With the help of my good friends Jake & Pablo we managed to put it up in 3 hours – and this time none of the decor got ripped down by the end of the night – SCORE!
During decorating hours I got a text from Cardiff (local drag queen) who wanted to open for Cassandra. I thought why not, this could entertaining…and it sure was! When her Sari (Indian dress) started falling off all I could think was “shit, I hope no one is getting offended”. With that said, Cardiff continues to grow as an drag performer…
In cased you missed (or couldn’t remember) Cassandra Moore’s performance, Ben Clouthier captured the amazing show! The beautiful outfits were custom made especially for ‘Bollywood Nights’, and the Bollywood style performance to Rihanna’s smash hit ‘We Found Love’ got people wild!

I think it is safe to say, Rihanna has taken over TMA for the night! I can’t express how much I’m enjoying her new album ‘Talk That Talk’… every lyric, every hook, every beat … Its all incredibly infectious! Although Rihanna has added ‘We Found Love’ to her current tour set list, this is the first full length, live performance I have seen of the song.
Rihanna is all the rage right now! She can talk that talk and most importantly walk that walk! Check out the mash up by DJ Dumpz. If you listen long enough DJ also “Dumpz” Leona’s Collide into the mix. It’s not bad, check it out!
Drag superstar, Sherry Vine (New York) comes out with yet another outrageous parody! She’s done the likes of Lady Gaga, Adele & JLO never failing to give us a good laugh. She actually just performed in our big sister city, Toronto for Grapefruit. Check out Sherry’s Youtube Channel
