Ask Chin: Do you Djay?

It’s been some time since we’ve asked Chin anything. This time we wanna know if she can spin the decks. She’s not internationally known but I assure you she’s “Big in Herndon.”

Prom dress code divides students, parents

I’m hearing that Prom this year at Freedom High School in Loudoun County is “polarizing” the community. I’m told it all started after the school posted a dance “‘dress code.” Here’s a copy of what the kids got- basically no high slits, cut out bodices, plunging necklines and ultra low open backs.

Shocker.. students are upset. So much so they aren’t going- to THAT prom. In fact, I’ve learned via an anti-dress rule revolution online the students organized an “alternate’ party. One on a boat. One that got more than 60 students out to a local McDonalds within half an hour to sign up for the unofficial “second prom.”

Last night I’m told the principal held a meeting– parents came out swinging on both sides and nothing was decided upon. So come next week.. we’ve got two parties and now parents saddened that their kids who’ve grown up together won’t share one of the biggest moments in high school.

Also, included in the rules that went out: this graphic. Can’t help but find it amusing. I’m not gonna share the bump ‘n’ grind pictures attached to it showing “appropriate” and “inappropriate” dancing.  Just use your imagination.

Caught on Cam: Chris Brown in DC

My intern Yoni texted me yesterday… she was with Chris Brown at Bar 7 in DC!

I said take some pics girl.. and she did that and more. Yoni headed to the downtown hot spot after Chris Brown tweeted the location of his secret listening party for a preview of his upcoming album F.A.M.E.

In less than an hour, adoring fans flocked to Bar 7, packing the venue full of matching “Team Breezy” t-shirts, cameras, high hopes and heavy anticipation. Although the album is unreleased, eager fans hummed along and danced to unknown tunes “She ain’t you”, “Next 2 You”, “Bomb”, and his personal favorite, “Beautiful People”.

A Virginia native himself, Brown expressed his deep gratitude for area fans in between songs and then hit them with the dougie!

The album releases March 22 and is available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon

The National Press Club was rockin’ recently as reporters hit the stage armed with their instruments, musical talent, and rock star finery. At Journopalooza III, “journo-bands” competed to raise money for three charitable media organizations: The Committee to Protect Journalists/Journalist Assistance Program, The Eric Friedheim National Journalism Library, and Reporters Without Borders.

The bands delivered fun and high-energy performances as an enthusiastic crowd—of more than 600 people—danced and cheered on the musicians. In all, seven bands performed, including: Dirty Bomb, Nobody’s Business, NRBK, Rebecca Christie & Peter Fields, Suspicious Package, The Charm Offensive, and The Stepping Stones.

All of the bands were impressive, but one band was ultimately named the evening’s winner, as determined by monetary votes from the crowd. That band, Suspicious Package, comprises Tom Toles (Pulitzer Prize-Winning Editorial Cartoonist at The Washington Post), Dr. Christina Sevilla(Director for Intergovernmental Affairs and Public Liaison of the U.S. Trade Representative), Bryan Greene (General Deputy Assistant Secretary of HUD), Tim Berger (Journalist), and Josh Meyer(Director of Education and Outreach, National Security Journalism Initiative at Medill Northwestern).
