The Real World

LoveReading View on Bling

Set in the world of Hip Hop following the fortunes of a manufactured star with loads of bitching and gossip. We struggled to find a category for it but wanted to feature it anyway!

Bling Synopsis

'Bling' - elaborate jewellery and clothing and the appreciation of it
Oxford English Dictionary 'Bling' -

Bling is all about aspiration: I want that fabulous lifestyle! I want glamour! I want to be rich and I want it to show! Erica Kennedy

Lamont Jackson, the ambitious and larger-than-life head of New York's Triple Large Entertainment, has been racking up multi-platinum hip-hop hits for over a decade. But now he needs to find an R'n'B crossover artist to prove to himself and his paymasters that he should succeed his mentor, Irv Greene, as head of Augusta Music. Marie-Jean Castiglione is the beautiful wannabe from unglamorous and un-street Toledo, Ohio, who impresses Lamont enough at audition to get the chance to make both their dreams become reality.

But it's going to take all of Lamont and his posse's know-how to turn Marie-Jean into a ghetto-fabulous superstar

Bling Press Reviews

"Five hundred pages of ghetto-fabulous glamour, Erica Kennedy's Bling is sure to be a big hit. In this wisecracking, raunchy read, hip-hop mogul Lamont Jackson sets out to transform small-town singer Mimi into a big-league star. Roll on the Miramax movie!"
 In Style

"this label-obsessed excursion into music land would give Ms Collins et al a run for their money."
