Hey guys!

I went to the Beyonce show at the Staples Center last night here in LA and it was amazing!! Besides the fact that I had pretty amazing seats, she is just an impressive performer, period. I couldn’t help but be inspired after the show :) My friend and one of my managers, Richard Channer, came with me which was great company as always.

Beyonce is definitely on my list of artists to see in concert again. You should go to!!!!

I saw some more footage from the Candy shoot today and it’s looking AMAZING!! I can’t wait for you guys to see it.

The candy video was such a blast to film. We shot three setups for something like 12 hours (that’s basically three different locations).

A long long work day!!! RJ Durell and Nick Florez directed and choreographed the video. RJ and Nick are known as the Goldenboyz and they’ve worked with Madonna, Britney, and a ton of other huge names. Such an honor to work with them. Thanks boyz for such a great shoot!!
