ON THE GO W/NERVO: OLIVIA + MIRIAM
CoverGirl got it right when they signed the DJ and production duo NERVO ‘to fit the brand’s “beauty with an edge” motto!’ The girls are gorgeous AND very talented having produced tracks for major talent such as Armin van Buuren & Ke$ha to name a couple. I got a chance to see them rock out at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival; what an experience! I spotted an article on Huffpost where the girls spoke in depth about their love for social media: Instagram, Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr. Check out a statement below and be sure to follow them; they love their fans! xo @rozOonTheGo
We’re going through a healthy obsession with our social media lately, particularlyInstagram. Pictures can say so many words in just a few seconds. We love interacting with our fans. Even if they can’t be at our gigs they can still share in the craziness via our [social media profiles]. Our fans tell us what they want to hear us play, what they’re going to wear to the gig, who they’re going to the gigs with. Their excitement is infectious and makes us want to be better for them. #truestory
The singer, 31, who is already schedule to perform at the Super Bowl in February, posted some personal photos online this week, including one from the studio – in which she’s seen rocking black-and-white leather pants and a matching top.
She shows off the outfit in more detail in another group of photos: the Rag & Bone pants and the abstract Nicholas Kirkwood shoes with what look like two faces staring at each other.
In another photo, she tries out a long-sleeve, collared silk shift dress with a colorful baroque print.
She has returned to performing sporadically this year, including a few shows over Memorial Day weekend and an appearance with husband Jay-Z in October. But the Super Bowl show will mark her grand return to the stage.

Our partners at Tumblr have brought six of their youngest, most successful and stylish bloggers to MADE fashion week. In this, the first of our daily series of profiles we speak to Rachel Schwartzmann a 19-year-old New York City based FIT student and the personality behind The Style Line
Milk Made: So what were you doing before you started The Style Line?
Rachel Schwartzmann: I was always doing something creative and come to think of it I was always blogging. I had Xanga, Livejournal and Blogger accounts (I’m still currently on blogger too) and I was writing about my exciting endeavors as a tween… Note the humor. But in high school I was primarily focused on becoming a dancer. I went to a performing arts high school for dance, and for a long period of time, performance was my world.
MM:Is the blog your day job now?
RS: Yeah you could say that, but I still have responsibilities as a student. Despite the juggling act, I’ve made it a priority to make The Style Line the best it can be and over the last year it’s really gained an incredible amount of traffic. I don’t mean to brag but it just broke 100k followers. It’s insane… I always hope to emulate a sense of integrity and personality in my content - I think that’s generally attractive to anyone.
This comes as no surprise to me because the Superstar DJ spoke similar words just a few months ago on his twitter and facebook pages. This time he reveals the below words via a post on his Tumblr. I know personally how crazy this business can get and pulling back a bit is needed at times. I wish him the best! xo @RozOonTheGo
So heres whats happening. im going to unplug for a wee bit. which doesnt mean im cancelling any upcoming shows or anything, im just gunna slam on the breaks for a bit and force myself to endure some quiet time. in that time, obviously the gears will still be moving, ill still be writing, and the releases will still come out (heads up for something crazy real soon like) and yeah.
i got a lot of work to do on some stuff. so, best i just chill the fuck out a bit and just get it done, and get it done RIGHT, until im 100% satisfied with it. Then our regularily scheduled program shall continue. but yeah, im basicly pretty miserable right now and need to pull the fuck back and figure out whatever the fuck it is i do.
Due to popular demand I’ll be conducting a Music Business Q&A periodically via UStream and/or here on Tumblr. I get tons of messages here on Tumblr, Facebook and on Twitter regarding my career in the Music Business. Some would like to know how to break into it, what it’s like working in it etcetera! Well, the Q&A’s will be your chance to receive a response from a respected Music Business Professional who’s been in the game over 10 years! Check out my ‘who is Roz-O’section for a little background and my Business Blog as well! Oh and Follow me on Twitter! I’ll post the date and time of the Q&A’s soon and whether it will be via Ustream or Tumblr! The Q&A’s will definitely be helpful to aspiring Rappers, Singers, Song writers, Producers and people wanting to work behind the scenes at Record Labels and Music TV Networks such as my former job MTV Networks!
I can’t wait to speak with you guys! xo @RozOonTheGo

Azealia Banks is making more waves on social media, this time taking to Tumblr to make a few career-altering announcements.
In a post titled “No Longer Wishing To Be a Rapper,” Banks explained that she would be considering herself a “vocalist” from now on, and that she deleted her Twitter account because it “makes [her] too accessible.”
“No longer wishing to be a rapper,” she wrote. “i never was…. and as soon as i started paying attention to bulls—- urban media, i started getting myself in trouble. From now on i’m a vocalist, and will not be associating myself with the “rap game”… or whatever the f—- that means… no more twitter for me… it makes me entirely too accessible. Catch me on tumblr… it’ll be more interesting.”
Banks created a stir on Twitter last week after news broke that she was splitting from Lady Gaga manager Troy Carter, whom she had signed with in April. Carter, for his part, told Billboard.biz “I can confirm that I ended the business relationship with Azealia last month on very amicable terms. She’s incredibly talented and I wish her nothing short of an amazing career.”

Surprising enough, Cassie loves to get style inspiration and ideas from sites like Tumblr. She recently revealed to She So Major: […] I’m just inspired by anything that I see, other people. I think a really cool tool that people are using now is Tumblr and you can search anything on Tumblr. You can follow somebody that just has a great eye. So, I just get inspiration from all over. I’ll sit on my computer for hours and just go online and make huge files of just pictures. I think it’s good to just keep your creative juices flowing, especially as an artist. So that’s something that I really enjoying doing because it keeps me calm.
