Miss Ls recently caught up with the budding crooner Stacy Barthe to talk about her upcoming ventures. The artist has collaborated with Grammy nominated artists, John Legend and Frank Ocean and has a bright future ahead of her. Here are some excerpts from the interview, hit the link below for the full text.
"My dream was never to become a hit songwriter, that just kind of fell into my lap, and it was an easy way in because I was good at it. I got burned out writing songs that I didn’t care about or writing things that I wouldn’t particularly listen to."
"Sincerely Yours was representing a time in my life. I’m working on my next project P.S. I love you, which is where I’m at in life. It’s basically the sequel to Sincerely Yours, the last song on that EP was “Let It Be,” basically saying when it’s over, it’s over, let it be."
This is only the first portion of the interview, stay tuned for Part II.

Grindin in my Cole Haan's kick em off they might be hot. As a subsidiary of the Nike umbrella Cole Haan has gotten the Nike Air treatment to enhance the comfort of a lot of its formal footwear. Now Nike has continued the trend of blending performance with formal and gave the lunar touch to Cole Haan. The project turned out pretty dope as far as appearance of the shoe is concerned and I'm sure that the comfort level is also superb.
