Melanie Fiona has won two Grammy awards, sits courtside at basketball games with Beyonce and Jay-Z, sings with Cee Lo on his “Fool for You,” and just released her second album, “The MF Life” (which we’re loving, by the way). And lucky for us, she’ll be live chatting today on our Facebook page from 12-12:30 pm ET. But first, check out what she’s totally obsessed with!
My current obsession is: Usher’s song “Climax.” A song hasn’t pulled on my heart strings like this in a long time.
The movie I’m so obsessed with I know every word: 550 Days of Summer is definitely one of my all time favorites.
The album I’m listening to non-stop is: “King of Limbs” by Radiohead. It totally takes me away from the chaos of the world.
The book I’m obsessed with is: The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho. It’s one of those books I could read over and over and is so applicable to life at every stage.
The meal I’m obsessed with is: My mom’s home cooking! I miss it so badly. She cooks traditionally Caribbean food, and I would love some shrimp curry right about now! (more…)
