Chill Out!

As soon as I arrived at my Amanyara villa, I kicked back and relaxed

As soon as I arrived at Amanyara I kicked back. It's the first time in many years that I've not been writing my book. I posted some pics to remind me of how lucky I am and to take this opportunity to Chill Out!

This is me the last time I was in Turks & Caicos - I was fiercely editing my memoir Le Freak

Judgement Day came and went last May. Oops! How did I miss that?

You will hear a Nile Rodgers song today. It will make you happy.

Today's pop music—genre-crossing, gender-bending, racially mixed, visually stylish, and dominated by dance music with global appeal—is the world that Nile Rodgers created. In the 1970s and 1980s, he wrote and produced the songs that defined that era and everything that came after: "Le Freak," "Good Times," "We Are Family," "Like a Virgin," "Modern Love," "I'm Coming Out," "The Reflex," "Rapper's Delight." Aside from his own band, Chic, he worked with everyone from Diana Ross and Madonna to David Bowie and Duran Duran (not to mention Mick Jagger, Debbie Harry, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, Prince, Rod Stewart, Robert Plant, Depeche Mode, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Grace Jones, Bryan Ferry, INXS, and the B-52's), transforming their music, selling millions of records, and redefining what a pop song could be.
