Catch Up with Kris Fade:
This week I had a chat with Canadian pop star Avril Lavigne. Sadly we couldn’t ask her about her personal life, like her engagement to Chad Kroeger, from Nickelback, but she seemed sweet and cool. She was a bit like one of her songs: you know what you’re gonna get!
Then, after last week’s epic bench-press challenge, which saw me beat producer Big Rossi by bench-pressing co-host Priti, we decided to auction off the bench we used. And we had an amazing response! The winning bid was Dhs13,500 from D.R Kayarda Lowe from Emirates Institute for Banking and Financial Studies. But then we had a guy, Gaurav Bhatia, the managing director of Internal Line Interior Design, who called up and gave us another Dhs10,000, so we raised Dhs23,500 for Dubai Cares. The money will go towards educating disadvantaged kids in the world and help break the cycle of poverty.
We also had fashion designer Lady Fozaza, aka Alanoud Badr, on the show. She makes amazing jackets. Kim Kardashian got one when she was visiting Dubai, and her sister Kourtney has one too. She only makes ladies’ ones, but I told her she needs to make me one!
We also asked her what it takes to become a fashion designer and her top tip was to be original. So there you go!
