FNO was busy, busy, busy on my part. On assignment for
New York Magazine, I got to interview Naomi Campbell,
Mary J. Blige, Grace Coddington, and…wait for it!…Smoke & Mirrors fave,

So many surprises! But perhaps the night’s biggest surprise came as a brief
cameo by super-producer-slash-R&B-cult-star, The-Dream, at Gucci’s
Ffawn foundation event. Accompanying guest, Mary J. Blige, to the
flagship store on 5th avenue Friday evening, Terius “The-Dream”
Nash, whose penned such hits as Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” seemed relaxed as could be sans ex, Christina Milian.
The Atlanta native hinted at why he was in New York: “Been working
with Beyonce for the last, um, forty days. Got a lot going on right
now.” The rest? “I’m starring as Sam Cooke in a movie ‘bout him. I’m
putting my own twist on his life and music. I’m redoing ‘Cupid’ and
all that.” Mary is also on bill for the hitmaker’s time, she
explained, “I’ve been working again with The-Dream. He’s definitely
cooking up somethin’ for my album out later this year.” Can’t wait.
