Macka's US$15,000 Couture dress now cost 1300

macka-diamond-fashion-red-carpet-us%2415000.jpgOn April 2, 2009, OutAroad.com posted an article titled OutAroad Red Carpet with Macka Diamond in which she posed for the feature at the recently held EME Awards. Within that night, two reporters were present at the Awards who took photos along with the prices of several entertainers outfit to be featured on the OutAroad Red Carpet. However one of the members asked Macka Diamond what were her expenses like to be at the EMEs and she told the reporter that her Couture dress cost a total of US15,000, the reporter then asked if it's US or JA$15,000 and she quickly replied, "no man is US that, mi bought inna Atlanta" With that price, the reporter was expecting to hear some more ridiculous prices for her shoes and earrings but it seems as if she got them from a friend.

In an interview on another website, Macka Diamond told reporters that she had no idea how the reporter from OutAroad.com got that pricing, as she cannot recalled talking to any reporter from OutAroad.com. However, in the story on the other website, she finally revealed how she got the dress saying her friend bought the dress for her, which couldn’t have cost any more than 1300. In the story she did not say if it's US$1300 or JA$1300 so at the end of the day it's still not clear as to how much money were spent for her Couture dress - I guess the other website made an error too.

Questions:
Was this a publicity stunt by Macka Diamond that went “six feet under”?

Why didn't Macka Diamond asks OutAroad to take down the feature?

Why Macka went to another website to clear the air - is it because she didn't want everyone to know the truth about her dress?

Why didn't Macka Diamond mention anything to the OutAroad CEO while he was talking to her on Gmail-Chat about submitting her baby photos for the new feature called ‘When I Was Child’.

Who is telling the truth Macka Diamond or the OutAroad reporters?

on any given day I would rather to believe outaroad over macka especially that she decided to tell the so-call truth to a website that only published bias stories and the reason why she could face outaroad it's because she told a lie, put it this way if the jamaican start made a mistake then you wold contact them and ask for them to run a correction but in this case macka nuh duh dat she went for more promotion lol

Mi just read the stories and it's clear as day that Macka a the one that's telling the lie, if she wasn't she would have demanded that Outaroad take down the story, she would have said something on outaroad and not run to The mix-up site... Everybody with common sense and an ounce of knowledge about fashion could have tell that dress was no where near 15,000 us... I notice that most of these never see come see artiste, when them start travel and shop they feel they need to hike up the price to look like them rolling in money.. Well macka it backfire pan you big time and now everybody a laugh afta you!

Cho Outa Road man unu do betta dan dat nuh!!
We dont have to involve inna unnessary Cas Cas like some of the other foreign media and local ones too, the hight road is always the better one to take, these unneccessary distractions about price of outfit is just a waste of on line space and people time.
I just love how Macka have reinvented heself and have been keeping the music at the top of her attention, and kudos must be given to her and her team for always giving her a great and different look for each of her major assignments
Come on cut out this petty foolishness and do some more serious journalistic work on the artiste dem.
The price of the dress have nothing to do with how she look in it,MONY OH!!
We of all people know how fi tun wi han an mek fashion, and at the end of the day is not the most expensive dress that looks the best
I see someone referred to you as MOUTAROAD above, i just hope that you not gettin into di mout ah massey buiness, dat wi kill u outaroad bisness
Just back offa her Royal MOneyness.. Money Oh Macka Di imon

@Mr. Sweetland - on outaroad's behalf, it was not really a gossip article that was being done. It just so happened that Macka stepped on the red carpet and decided to tell folks the prices for her attire. And usually when outaroad does the red carpet event, they lists what the artist tells them. Hence, we the on-line viewers started to say, "no-way'hosey- dat dress cost $15,000"

Macka Diamond. Money? What is this? All is vanity and vexation of spirit says the Holy Bible. After all is said and done the cost of one's clothing determines very little about the content of their character. Dancehall has a golden opportunity to still help to determine the direction we go as a people Macka Diamond. Money? So what?

Peace and love Jamaicans and other peoples of the world who love and support our culture.
