I had a chance to sit down with Reem Acra in her home and at her design studio, getting to know her fascinating history, and understanding the important parts of her budding atelier and career.
I like teens. If memory serves, I was a teenager myself once upon a slightly more innocent time. So here are some of the greatest tunes of all time that were created by, for or about teengers.
With such enthusiasm on the Upper West Side of New York City last week, and popular artists like Norah Jones, Sheryl Crow and Elvis Costello making trips to Nashville for the Time Jumpers, perhaps it is time Manhattan got into the country western groove.
Here's a loose-lipped playlist for Stan the Man, a dude with a big ego and a very mixed record who finally accomplished the impossible -- actually stealing some of the cultural spotlight away from Lady GaGa.

If all those Grammys weren't enough for you -- Beyonce, Taylor, GaGa -- here's are some songs to honor this moment and to have your head spinning like Pink was last night.
