Exclusive: Emeli Sande, SWV, Kelis And More At Essence Women In Music Soiree



On Wednesday night, Essence kicked off Grammy week with an exclusive showcase of the artistry and achievement of singer, Emile Sandé. HipHollywood was on the red carpet where we caught up with Sandé to talk about being the night’s honoree.

“It feels amazing. Essence has really showed me so much support from the beginning, so to have this acknowledgement just feels great, really fantastic,” the English recording artist shared with HH.

The night brought out some of the most incredible, talented women in music, including the recently reunited group, SWV.

The popular 90’s R&B group is currently starring in a reality show titled SWV Reunited, which follows the group as they figure out how to trust each other again on and off stage … And with just one episode in, the WE show has already become a fan favorite.

During tonight’s episode, viewers will see group members Coko and Leelee undergo serious plastic surgery. So while on the red carpet , HipHollywood caught up with the ladies to talk about their decision to go under the knife.

“I turned 40, wanted to do something crazy and different. So that’s what I chose, I wanted the butt lift, the Brazilian butt lift,” Leelee said about going under the knife. “I had no complications, I would do it again … I wasn’t too flat before, I just got it lifted.”

Coko, who received a tummy tuck, revealed to us it was simply just time. “I was 43, had a big ol’ kangaroo pouch that wasn’t going anywhere after two babies, I didn’t want to work out for it,” the singer said. “I took the easy route out, so I got a tummy tuck and got some fat taken out the back, I’m good.”

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
