A new mother once again finds herself being thrust into a world of celebrity pampering. Her breastfeeding relationship with her infant son has been rekindled by an unexpected celebrity presence-hers famous mother Ena Fays. How did Ena Fays gain the attention of the media and the public while breastfeeding her son in the most public setting? She obviously used the baby shower as a venue.
Ena Fays is an entertainer who specializes in stage, television, and video appearances. She became famous when the popular television show The Oprah Winfrey Show launched her into stardom. Her television appearances on shows like The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Oprah Magazine made her an instant celebrity. Once she had been named one of the “Masters of Rock and Roll” along with her former bandmate, Layla and Liza. Then, she was invited to perform at the 1995 Academy Awards.
Ena Fays is known for her over-the-top extravagant fashions. Her clothing line boasts handbags, shoes, dresses, lingerie, hats, and jewelry. Her clothing line even featured an entire line of infant wear. She frequently visits her many Los Angeles-based modeling agencies to appear in print ads and photographs. Although her clothes are expensive and eye-catching, they have not been successful in establishing any recognizable image. One reason for this is that most people are unable to identify the woman seen in the advertisements or photographs.
How did Ena Fays gain the attention of the media and the public while breastfeeding her infant son on the Oprah Winfrey show? Some sources suggest that Ena may have used the baby shower as a platform to promote her own motherhood/childcare center. There are several services that offer baby care services for low or no costs. However, it appears that Ena was using the baby shower to launch her new line of clothing. According to one source, Ena was shopping with her mother in California when she was discovered at a department store in the Los Angeles area by the television camera operator. The television station captured Ena Fays wearing one of her new designs, which consisted of a long black dress with embroidery on the side.
In early May, the world learned that Ena Fays was the mother of rap artist En Vogue’s singer, Jay Z. The world waited for the mother’s reaction to the news that she was being linked to the hip-hop icon. While some mothers were upset and had strong opinions about the tie-in, others were excited that Ena was being featured on a mother’s day celebration. A quick search of En Vogue’s website revealed that Ena was indeed a mother to Z, and the two had been co-producing songs together.
Another source indicated that Ena was spotted at the Busch Gardens Theme Park in Tampa Bay Florida during the height of the month of May. A photo of Ena was also posted on the company’s official Facebook page, as well as a clip from the “Famous Mothers Day” movie. Many people speculated that Ena was either trying to co-host or promote the event since her son Zara is also an active participant in the company. She has not formally released any details regarding her pregnancy, though she did share a snap of herself and Zara with the caption, “Cute!. Mommy to be!”
The “Famous Mothers Day” party was another success for Ena Fays. This party was hosted by her mother’s friend, Zia Fields, and featured music from several artists. This included Rihanna, Akon, J.Lo, Usher, Lenny Kravitz, Nelly, and more. The party also featured appearances by Cash-A-Ion, Akon, and Cash. Though Ena was unable to make it to the actual “celebration”, she did share pictures from her various social media sites, including ones that she posts on her MySpace and Facebook.
Ena was not the only celebrity to attend the “Famous Mothers Day” party. Other notable guests included Kaylee and Layla. Layla is Ena’s daughter, whom she had introduced to the world via YouTube. Kaylee is Ena’s mother, whom she had helped get set up with her record label. These two women are said to have great chemistry, making it a safe bet that they will also be co-hosting the mother’s day bash.
