There are some couples who look so good together that they start to look alike. Below are my favorite lovebirds who just couldn't make it last *teardrop*. Either he or she cheated, someone wasn't ready for kids, they just grew apart or cocaine got in the way, lol. No matter how you put it, at the end of the day-they're all dunnzo! Ahhhhh, cue: violins........

"The Jets" were an 80's family singing group who were formally known as "The Polynesian Pearls". They were raised in the Tongan islands in Hawaii and then moved to Minneapolis. The group consisted of 8 brothers and sisters and were discovered by Don Powell. The Jets were popular for songs such as "Make It Real", "Crush On You" and "You Got It All" (which was my FAV)…..
With their unique look, wild bushy hair and infamous "non-matching/pastel color" outfits, lol. This brother and sister group rocked the charts in the 80's with their love struck ballads. Although, it's been years since we heard from them. The Jets are now touring throughout the country and are in the process of recording another album. Let's hope they come back full blast-*crossing fingers*.
*Sidebar-I secretly wanted to be the 9th member when I was a kid. Shhhhhh.....

Last night legend Lena Horne passed away at the age of 92. She was definitely a class act! As a child, I remember my mom playing her music around the house while she cleaned. One of my favorite songs of Lena's was "Stormy Weather", it was just smooth & soothing. She was also the 1st black performer to be signed to a long term contract with a Hollywood studio. I even recall watching "The Cosby Show" when Ms. Horne surprised Cliff for his b-day. I always wanted to get her to sing for my dad ever since watching that episode, lol. Iconic, Regal, Graceful, Beauty and Legend. You will be missed Lena Horne, may you rest in peace......
