Runway Report: Pretty Plaids

“Cultural patronage is never a priority for companies [oh, hell naw!], but given the wide range of companies Kate’s worked for, from Nikon to Chanel, Virgin Mobil to Dior and the heaps of money each and every one has made off of the supermodel, we’re surprised no one’s stepped up to attach their name to the exhibition."Alright L.A.D.,. I mean come on. It's a tad bit early have anything called the Kate Moss "myth" OR have anyone take a stroll down her ‘long’ career—the bitch is only only 36–so it makes me wonder what the hell they put on display, anyhow?
“Gaga was at the Intercontinental Hotel in Adelaide, Australia, when she walked past the ballroom where the reception was in full swing. Courtney, a big fan, spotted her and screamed: ‘Wow! It’s Lady Gaga.’
A guest said: ‘Gaga looked across at Courtney and put her hands up to her face in a camera-clicking mime, as if to say, ‘Do you want your photo taken with me?’ Of course Courtney said yes and Lady Gaga came in, kissed her on the cheek and happily posed for pictures. She lined up with the bride and her flower girls for an unforgettable photo.’Later that night, Gaga caught up with the wedding party again in the bar. ‘She shouted, ‘everyone, a round of drinks,’ said a friend. And her parting shot for the couple before she finally left was: ‘Have good sex!’”
“No one [in Rihanna's camp] is panicking yet, but there is DEEP concern that Rihanna has peaked, and is on the downside of her music career. Nicki [Minaj] was brought in to sell tickets, but Rihanna did NOT want her on. Nicki is not an opening act, and we would never put her out there like that.”This insider also had this to say about what went down when Nicki Minaj (hey gurrl) PERSONALLY called Rihanna upon receiving news that she was yanked:
“I only heard one side of the conversation, but [there] were a lot of curse words thrown back and forth.”
"It's part of a larger campaign ... to tell our young people and our community as a whole, we are better than this," Adams told CNN, adding that the sagging trend originated from prison culture. According to the former New York police captain, "I policed all over the city. ... The first indicator of whether a young person was in trouble was the way they dressed." (full article here)"A young person"? FUCK. YOU Sen. Adams. I've seen tons of "old people" looking a MESS on the streets, and I don't think I ever once said, "Oh shit, that guy's future is entirely bleak." I mean, I get it, I do. I get it. Your appearance reflects who you are. But what if that's exactly who they are? What if that's their inherit style? You're gonna harass them cause you don't LIKE IT? Gimme a flippin' break. PLUS, you're gonna make a flash judgment on someone based on how they LOOK? Fine line, Senator. Fine line.
Earlier last week, I posted the new slammah-jamnah "Fembot" by Robyn. The first album is it to be titled Body Talk Pt 1, and will feature 8 new tracks from Robyn, including ‘Fembot’ and ‘Dance Hall Queen’, produced by Diplo. Royksopp, Klas Ahlund, long-time collaborator Kleerup and more are also on board.
Says the baddest bitch in pop about her upcoming THREE albums, "I got all these great songs so why not? It’s been 5 years since Robyn and I didn’t want to wait with a release until they are all recorded, so I decided to start putting them out right away. I also can’t wait to play live again and this enables me to tour and record at the same time. I just want to keep making music."Body Talk Pt 1 is set to be released on June 7, 2010 w/ the single 'Dance on my Own' releasing the same day. Beyond excited, it's been waaaaaaaaay too long, Roby-poo! Imma TEAR. IT . UP. WAITFORIT.
