The Jonas Brothers always sing from the POV of a puppy-eyed rom-com hero, and now they've gone ahead and made their own movie. Their first (non-Christmas or reality TV-penned) single since Happiness Begins dropped is a zippy, retro-sounding love song, "What A Man Gotta Do." It comes with a Grease-Risky Business-Say Anything mash-up music video a la "Thank U, Next," starring the boys' wives.

Sophie Turner steals the show as both a pouting Sandy Olsson and rival seductress who whisks away Joe's Danny Zucco at the school dance. (She should try out those wigs on the red carpet.)

The other star? Nick's thighs, which can only be described as sturdy. The pasty tree trunks feature prominently, peeking out from under a white button up in his Risky Business bit. Priyanka Chopra, the Rebecca de Mornay to Nick's Tom Cruise, is positively Pantene-ad worthy, twirling around denying Nick's advances until they fall down in a pile. Some have questioned the pair's chemistry, but they're fully in sync for the video.

None


Last but not least, Kevin plays a feckless John Cusack whose boombox malfunctions as he attempts to woo his wife, Danielle Jonas. It's almost a little too on the nose! Kevin and Joe also both, inexplicably, drop trou later in the video, departing from the plots of Say Anything and Grease.

None


If you need a hit of rom-com goofiness before the To All The Boys I've Loved Before sequel drops next month, it's a solid dose.

Eminem Sparks Criticism For Manchester Bombing Lyrichttp://www.wupxae.live/eminem-manchester-bombing-lyrics-2644841809.html

Eminem dropped a surprise project today to follow up his 2018 record Kamikaze, and it's already making headlines for all the wrong reasons. The abrasive 20-track album, titled Music to Be Murdered By, is already rubbing the internet wrong way — starting with its the first full-length song, "Unaccommodating."

None


The song features rapper Young M.A., whose 2016 breakout hit "Ooouuu" topped the Billboard charts, and features a bass-heavy instrumental and long verses. It also contains two lines where Eminem makes a callous pass about the Manchester Arena bombing of an Ariana Grande concert in 2017.

"But I'm contemplating yelling 'Bombs away' on the game/ Like I'm outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting," he raps prior to the first chorus. The comment appears to make light of a tragedy that ultimately took the lives of 23 people.


None


Fans of Grande, and members of the general public as a whole, are rallying to denounce the lyrics and the song as ignorant of the physical and emotional trauma victims experienced as a result of the attack. Eminem has yet to make a statement concerning the outrage, but the surprise rollout of his latest album is certainly not off to a very good start.

Karlie Kloss Reveals How She'll Vote in 2020http://www.wupxae.live/karlie-kloss-trump-kushner-ties-2644842088.html

When a contestant called out Karlie Kloss for her Kushner family affiliation on an episode of this season of Project Runway, the quote wouldn't stop circulating online. "Not even to dinner with the Kushners?" was the question on everyone's lips after Tyler Neasloney read the judge to her face for being associated with the Trump-backing monolith of a family.

None


Finally, Kloss spoke up about her thoughts on the comments in an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.

None


The "open book" supermodel was on the episode of WWHL with Martha Stewart, and initially dodged the question with a few musings about how hideous she thought the Neasloney-made dress was. Cohen didn't allow her to get off easily, though, and pressed her to make a public statement on the Kushner family's notorious political affiliation to President Donald Trump.

"I voted as a democrat in 2016," Kloss stated after describing her politics as different and separate from the family she married into after her wedding to Joshua Kushner in 2018. "I plan to do the same in 2020," she concludes. Concise and not really all that telling of how she processed the comments made on air during the Project Runway episode, it's one of the first times Kloss has made a definitive statement about how she separates her own beliefs from her family's.

Hermès Launches First-Ever Beauty Linehttp://www.wupxae.live/historic-hermes-lipsticks-2644841666.html

For the first time in 183 years, French luxury brand Hermès is launching its own makeup. Its historic first product launch? A line of lipsticks called Rouge Hermès –– resurrecting the same name it used for the brand's perfume collection in 2000.


None


Paying homage to Hermès' luxe heritage products, the texture of the lipsticks will reportedly emulate the bag's soft leather, while the satin finish will celebrate the silk scarves. The lipsticks will come in 24 different shades along with two different finishes –– matte in addition to the signature satin.

None


Crafted using natural ingredients –– like beeswax and white mulberry extract –– at Hermès' laboratory in Normandy, the colors range from a deep purple and neutral rose to a true red and a bright orange.

None

According to the Wall Street Journal, the lipstick has been two years in the making and was carefully crafted to include a delicate custom scent and refillable packaging designed by Pierre Hardy, creative director of jewelry and shoes."We wanted to do refillable so we could use more luxurious materials that had their own value," Hardy told WSJ. "The idea is a form that's both simple and playful enough to allow it to be done and redone ad infinitum. It's rare for an artistic director to think about packaging over a long period of time and not just a one-off. "

None


Although the brand did not reveal if it'll be dropping any other products, it's supposedly a part of its larger expansion into cosmetics, that will eventually span into skincare. Fans can expect to see a new category including foundations and blushes in the next six months.

None


The Parisian label's ascent into cosmetics, echoes a recent pattern within the luxury fashion industry where several brands such as Burberry and Gucci have also launched their own beauty products. With beauty now a $532 billion industry, it's no surprise that everyone wants a piece of the action.

None


The Rouge Hermès lipstick is priced at $67, while a refill will cost $42. The collection is set to launch in March.

My Year With Big Lipshttp://www.wupxae.live/my-year-with-big-lips-2644829935.html

The first time I had my lips injected with Juvederm — better known to the masses as "fillers" — my doctor asked if I wanted something subtle.

None


"Of course not," I told him. "I'm not getting hyaluronic acid pumped into my lips so that people won't notice it."

None


Like anyone with an Instagram account, I'd seen my fair share of influencers tagging their go-to dermatologist in gushing sponsored posts gushing about their fillers. I'd seen actors, musicians and drag queens return from a brief social media hiatus with mysteriously fuller lips. And, most compellingly, I'd seen fellow trans women managing their dysphoria with fillers as an alternative to more permanent surgical enhancement.

None


Juvederm, the most popular filler on the market, is used to fill and plump different areas of the face. Unlike other injectables, its gel consistency can be molded to create a fuller look that both appears and feels natural. Juvederm and other products like it can be used to fill laugh lines and crow's feet, but its most popular use is to plump everything from cheekbones to sunken under eyes... and, most famously, lips.

None


In my case, it wasn't that my lips were too small. I actually think my natural lips are on the plump side. But almost three years into transitioning, I hadn't done anything more dramatic than getting bangs to alter my face. Of course hormone replacement therapy had softened me out, redistributing fat to soften my features, but as more and more girls around me went under the knife, I was starting to feel left out. I wanted some kind of dramatic, visible change. I wanted to look in the mirror and immediately see that something about me was tangibly different.

None


The process of actually getting fillers was both quick and relatively painless. My doctor used a topical numbing agent on my lips, but still he was impressed by how little I flinched when he repeatedly shoved a large syringe into them.

None


"I stick a needle full of estrogen into my thigh every two weeks," I deadpanned. "I'm good, babe."

None


In the days following my appointment, my lips were so swollen that I couldn't rub them together to properly distribute lip balm. I was in love. For the first time in my life, my lips were huge — Angelina Jolie huge, Liv Tyler huge, Amanda Lepore huge. I couldn't stop taking selfies, despite having a black eye from the botox brow lift I'd also gotten. Even after the swelling went down (devastating), I was obsessed with the results. My lips finally looked the way I overdrew and Facetuned them to be: permanently pouty, with a rounded cupid's bow.

None


I'm far from alone in my experience. "I always Facetuned my lips a little bit bigger, and that's what I wanted," says Jordan Stawecki, a New York City club kid and twink about town, now living in Los Angeles. Stawecki first got his lips filled during Pride in 2018; he went directly from his doctor's office to Ladyfag's queer music festival Ladyland. "I always wanted the pursed lips Lana Del Rey has... but bigger... my face is already a little bitchy, but the pout helps," he adds.

None


Biblegirl666, a LA-based drag queen known for her pouty lips, first got fillers in 2016, even though her lips weren't something she'd ever been insecure about. "But after my second or third time doing it, I started to realize that this helps reframe my face and helps everything sit a little better, and makes me feel better about myself and where I focused insecurities with my skin," she says. "I realized with something as minute as a change in my lip size, it was a more positive distraction. You save up your cash and you can obtain a small but worthwhile goal."

None


Dr. Nikhil Dhingra, a dermatologist at Spring Street Dermatology in NYC, has seen a marked increase in requests for lip fillers over the past two years, especially with younger clients.

None


"Younger people either don't have the budget for something like surgery or the downtime [to recover], or are hesitant about doing something more permanent," Dhingra says. "Fillers are very low commitment: if you hate it, it's dissolvable, relatively affordable, and it can be done conservatively rather than overdoing it."

None


Not that everyone is looking for subtlety. For Biblegirl, "the first pump was the deepest, for sure. I had a fat lip... I was juiced." Stawecki also went big his first time, although he says doctors in New York are more inclined to aim for a natural look and will advise smaller amounts of Juvederm.

None


For his most recent touch up, he had a syringe and a half split between his top and bottom lip. (Dr. Dhingra says that on average he'll use half a syringe of Juvederm on a patient.) "I want to look like I just got stung by a bunch of bees," he laughs.

None


In the months following my first injection, my lips became the star of the show. I started to notice that I led with them — that I was always conscious of their perma-pucker. I was now a girl with big lips before anything else. When men slid into my DMs (or my Grindr messages), my lips were the first thing they complimented. For my touch up appointment in May, I decided to go even more dramatic, with a full syringe in each lip — there was a movie premiere involved, and I had to stunt.

None


Even the people I least expected to notice the change started asking questions. At a family BBQ over the summer, my aunt paused from flipping turkey burgers and confronted me. "Have you... done something to your lips?" she asked. "They're huge."

None


Stawecki confirms: "It's a conversation starter, for sure."

None


And not always a positive one. As with any sort of cosmetic enhancement, the advent of fillers has been met with criticism, some of which is grounded in the health risks they present. While side effects like swelling, bruising and infection are common and short-lived enough to be negligible, more serious side-effects do exist. A paper published in 2017 found that around 50 cases of blindness as a result of dermal fillers had been reported — the blood vessels around the nose and eyes are "in continuity" with retinal blood vessels.

None


My most pressing reason to consider not getting juiced was a bit more personal. When I told my mother I planned to get fillers, she absolutely lost it. "What are you, crazy?" she screamed. "You're too young to be injecting shit in your face." While I love being called young, I disagreed. It's my face, my money, and I'll do what I want with it. And for the most part, I've had no regrets.

None


Some days I look in the mirror and think my lips are still tiny. Other days I look in the mirror and think they're too big. But after a year with pumped lips, I can't ever see myself going back. That means that, I'll need a touch up at least once a year for the foreseeable future. Dr. Dhingra says that while dissolution rate varies from person to person — those with higher metabolisms will wear down faster — four months is the normal tune up period.

None


There are also more permanent lip plumping options, like silicone implants, but Dhingra doesn't recommend going down this route. "It's kind of the old school way of doing things," he says. "SIlicone is riskier and can backfire. There are a lot of cases of people reacting badly to the silicone, generating inflammation. It can lead to ulceration and skin breakdown."

None


Fillers are more malleable than implants and can be easily dissolved if you change your mind — last year Jeffree Star fixed his "botch" and "deformed" lips by having silicone injections removed. They also just look better: hyaluronic acid attracts water, meaning lips filled with Juvederm look naturally plump and juicy rather than stiff and unnatural.

None


For Biblegirl, lip fillers helped realize an illusion she'd already been creating with drag makeup. "It brought it to a more heightened level, but it also gave me something to play with," she says. "Now I have this full exterior piece and I can play with dimension, bleeding and smudging my lips. I can pump it up and create depth rather than having to fake the smoke and the mirrors simultaneously."

None


For trans women, fillers can help achieve the kind of feminine fullness that hormone replacement therapy generates, but with more immediate and controlled results. "[HRT] can do so much, but lip shape is a done deal, unfortunately," says Dr. Dhingra. Fillers are "a fantastic option to create that subtle effect that can offer a very feminine shape. There is a very clear gender differences in lip fullness, the same way there are racial differences... fillers are a very low commitment way to get that done that requires regular upkeep, but the tradeoff is significant."

None


Will I keep getting my lips filled twice a year for the rest of my life? Who knows! I may decide that I'd prefer a natural look, or undergo some more permanent cosmetic enhancements that placate or alter my dysphoria enough that lip shape is no longer important to me. But for now, I love having huge lips. To paraphrase Real Housewives star Aviva Drescher, the only thing fake about me are these — and I'm fine with that!

None


"After I started getting them done, I felt more confident," Stawecki confesses. "I've always been confident, but it really boosted that. It's something for yourself, and whether other people like it or not, it's what I want. Doing things for yourself is powerful."

Telfar's Gap Collab Makes So Much Sensehttp://www.wupxae.live/telfar-gap-collab-paris-party-2644841889.html

Telfar just dropped the biggest surprise of men's fashion month yet: The brand is collaborating with Gap on an upcoming collection, slated for sometime in 2020. While more details won't be released until later this year, both brands teased the new collab with a mega blowout in Paris last night.

The Gap store on the Rue Tronchet in Paris was transformed into a multi-level after-hours nightclub, where a slew of creative heavyweights like Honey Dijon, Dev Hynes, Violet Chachki and Stefano Pilati all gathered to celebrate. Surrounding the store facade are images of Telfar's Fall 2020 collection, which debuted in Florence last week.

Featured acts who performed at the bash include SOPHIE, Yves Tumor and Sega Bodega. While to some this may seem like an unlike partnership, Telfar says that he's actually obsessed with Gap, and describes the collab as a dream come true.

None


"What I do is about the idea of 'normal' –– and changing that –– because that is when you change real life," the designer said in a statement. "Gap created the blueprint for my brand because the Gap person is literally everybody: every possible race, gender, rich, poor. I want to take that idea to the year 2020 –– and to take my clothes outside of just fashion capitals and boutiques and actually make them available for everybody."

None


None


Indeed, those who follow Telfar's work know that his designs are all about the idea of universal basics, making luxury garments affordable and wearing them in unorthodox ways. "From the moment we began talking with Telfar about the collaboration, we were captivated by his vision and the parallels between the brands, and we are excited to unveil a partnership built on these shared values," added John Caruso, VP of Adult Design at Gap.

Givenchy has shown just two collections so far under Clare Waight Keller, both of which referenced the brand's rich past with forward-thinking techniques. This season, the first on the Paris runway after showing in Florence last year, Keller was inspired by the 14th Maharajah of Indore, who traveled the world dripping in finery and lavish costumes. He left his home in India to go to LA, which explains the Western references and couture embroidery on evening wear. All of this is juxtaposed by fetish detailing like giant pins and colorful latex, which were done in collaboration with Atsuko Kudo. Here's everything else you need to know about the Fall 2020 collection.

Marti Cummings Could Be New York's First Nonbinary City Councilorhttp://www.wupxae.live/marti-cummings-new-york-councilor-2644833899.html

Marti Cummings is not like other politicians. An accomplished drag queen and queer activist, they are running to be New York City's first nonbinary city councilor. So when they needed to raise money for their race, the party was going to look different to most political fundraisers.

None


Some of the New York queer community's finest lent their talents to the fundraiser, which took place on January 11 at the home of young queer philanthropist Larry Milstein. Makeup artist Will Sullivan gave "a little glam" to attendees. Meanwhile, fashion photographer Hunter Abrams, known for his Met Gala portraits, set up a booth to capture the crowd's various looks.

"The event didn't feel like a traditional fundraiser because it wasn't," says community organizer and writer Adam Eli. "The night felt an intentional community gathering and a high energy queer skill swap. Everyone contributed what they could in service of our greater goal — getting Marti elected. And not all of the contributions were monetary." ?

None


The night kicked off with a speech by Cummings about why queer representation matters in politics. "Movements for queer liberation were started by the most marginalized in the queer community," they said, adding that their candidacy reflects "the diversity of this city."

None


A party for a drag queen would be incomplete without a show. West Dakota, a Brooklyn-based queen and model, gave a gender bending performance to Queen's "Somebody to Love" that had the dollars raining down.

Cummings came to New York to be a Broadway star but, in their words, "I was a little too pitchy." From Broadway they found drag and became one of the Hell's Kitchen drag scene's most beloved fixtures. Their work includes a drag rendition of Baby Shark that went viral in March of last year. Since "all drag is political," they quickly became a queer activist, founding the Hell's Kitchen Democrats, serving on Community Board 9 in Harlem, representing the community on NYC's Nightlife Council and serving on the board of the Ali Forney Center for Homeless LGBTQ Youth.

None


The race is crowded with eight other candidates vying to fill the open seat, but Cummings' campaign is confident their grassroots support will propel them to victory. Cummings is running in City Council District 7, which represents Morningside Heights, West Harlem, Washington Heights, and part of the Upper West Side in Upper Manhattan.

None


Explaining their decision to co-host the event, Milk from RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 3, said Cummings and politics were a natural fit: "Marti allows us to connect with the inherently political roots of drag, and shows us how we can harness our own queer political power to demand what is right and just for marginalized communities."

None

None


Besides the looks served, the event was uniquely accessible — free and open to the public, unlike many political fundraisers where seats can cost thousands of dollars. "It's important to us that we reach out to everyone regardless of ability to pay because the people typically left out are exactly the ones who need representation the most," explained Brian Derrick, Cummings' campaign manager. Given the one-of-a-kind candidate and low barrier to entry, the crowd was made up of a diverse group of young queers, most of whom had never been to a political fundraiser before.

None


Attendees might have been new to the political scene, but they were committed to it. On Thursday, Marti's campaign announced they have double the amount individual contributors out of any other candidate in the race. They raised $215,000 in the first four months of their race with 93% of donations below $100, showing the grassroots strength of this campaign. The next phase will be to use these funds to get out the vote and introduce Cummings to the voters in District 7.

None


Marti's candidacy is about more than one person's political participation — and this early success shows how the queer community can have power in numbers when it comes together. "When I win city council I am taking YOUR voice with me," Cummings wrote on Instagram this week. "To work for you and to fight for you."

Baby Goth Celebrates Bisexual Women at Her 'Afterparty'http://www.wupxae.live/premiere-baby-goth-afterparty-2644841401.html

In a society where bisexual women are frequently targeted and fetishized, Baby Goth's new track and music video, "Afterparty," creates a space for them to safely party and uplift each other. Opening with distorted electric guitars, Baby Goth sings frankly about her identity, while embracing fellow queer women: "Let's make a toast to the bitches getting cozy/ It's a lifestyle I believe in."

None


In the party-themed video, directed by Lillie Wojcik, Baby Goth dances and hangs out with her girlfriends in a car and at a club, illuminated in violet and magenta hues. As it turns out, this was influenced by Baby Goth's synesthesia, her ability to associate music with specific colors. "The song feels pink and purple to me, and kind of dark," the singer says, explaining her lighting choices.

Ultimately, Baby Goth wants "Afterparty" to promote an inclusive message. She says the single "feels like a song you would get ready and go out with your girls to. It's confident, sexy and exciting, so I wanted to capture that in the video as well. Just a fun girls' night out, living raw and in the moment."

She stresses that it was also important to portray her bisexuality through the visuals. "The director I chose to work with had a very similar idea of how to make the song a reality for everyone, as well as compliment my personality and set requests, which made the creative process really easy and fun," Baby Goth says.

At the venue for Jonathan Anderson's Fall 2020 men's show in Paris, rows of black and white chairs featured a mix of industry guests and seated mannequins, the latter of which appear ominously in the background of the brand's runway shots. Each of them wore a mask depicting the late French poet Arthur Rimbaud, which were recreated by artist David Wojnarowicz.

They also each wore sweaters with images of burning houses, another series of artworks by Wojnarowicz. (These went on sale right after the show to support VisualAIDS, a contemporary arts organization that raises awareness and supports HIV+ artists.)

Sevdaliza Speaks Out About the Iran Crisishttp://www.wupxae.live/sevdaliza-iran-crisis-2644833510.html

Following President Trump's drone strikes in Baghdad a few weeks ago, leading Iranian military general Qassem Suleimani was killed, and protests filled the city streets and in Tehran, Iran.

Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has since called for revenge against the U.S. following three days of national mourning, saying, "His departure to God does not end his path or his mission, but a forceful revenge awaits the criminals who have his blood and the blood of the other martyrs last night on their hands." Since this has happened, tensions have further escalated and conditions have only grown more dire: a passenger plane being shot down left 176 casualties; missile attacks destroyed U.S. bases in Iraq and Iran; the U.S. resumed counter-ISIS operations in Iran and Iran lifted all uranium production limits following Trump's recent U.S. withdrawal from former President Obama's landmark nuclear deal.

"As a child born amidst a war, I have worked my way into free expression[...] I feel responsible to share my story in solidarity with all that demand equality, peace and truth."

Iranian-Dutch musician Sevdaliza just released a statement addressing the mounting crisis. At age five, she and her family fled war-torn Iran for refuge in Rotterdam, where she spent the rest of her childhood. On Instagram, she posted a photo of herself as a young child and opens with, "Every human being deserves peace and equality."

None


"People are affected in a way that none of us can imagine," Sevdaliza writes. "I was born amidst a war like millions of other children. We do not choose our past, all I can do is choose my future. I consider myself privileged. I am not a victim."


None


Considering her privilege, Sevdaliza is using her platform to further address the Iranian conflict, releasing a song called "Oh My God" on January 29. "The current political climate, [sic] has brought forward tensions that prohibit me from expanding business and personal endeavors," she writes. "I realize this is not about me, yet it is important to raise our voices and to share our stories." Given Sevdaliza's global following, she also released versions of it in Russian, Chinese and Spanish.

None



"I am deeply affected by the current political climate," Sevdaliza tells PAPER. "As a child born amidst a war, I have worked my way into free expression. Power strokes are being played at the expense of human life. Regimes that are at play, keep wars alive and perpetuate hate and violence against all humanity. I feel responsible to share my story in solidarity with all that demand equality, peace and truth."

Rep. Ayanna Pressley Reveals She Has Alopeciahttp://www.wupxae.live/rep-ayanna-pressley-alopecia-2644836342.html

On Thursday, Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley revealed for the first time that she is living with alopecia.

None


In a new video for The Root, Pressley got personal about her experience dealing with the sudden onset of the autoimmune disorder, which causes "hair loss on the scalp, face and sometimes on other areas of the body," per the National Alopecia Areata Foundation.

None


Explaining that her hair loss "accelerated very quickly" after she first began noticing patches on her scalp last fall, Pressley said that the last of her hair fell out this past December — the day before the House impeachment vote.

"I was completely bald, and in a matter of hours was going to have to walk into the floor," Pressley said. "I didn't have the luxury of mourning what felt like the loss of a limb. It was a moment of transformation not of my choosing."

None


That said, "The Squad" member also spoke about how she tried everything in her power in the interim to stop the hair loss, explaining that she tried everything from wrapping her hair to wearing a bonnet to sleeping on a silk pillowcase at night.

None


"Every night I was employing all the tools that I had been schooled and trained in all my life as a black woman, because I thought that I could stop this," she continued — though that, unfortunately, didn't prevent her from "waking up every morning to sinkfuls of hair."

None


And while she said that she's "making peace" with the condition as she's still "very early in my alopecia journey," the congresswoman explained that she felt ready to share her condition now, as she wants "to be freed from the secret and the shame that that secret carries with it."

None


Additionally, when faced with the reality that as "a Black woman in politics, everything I do is political," Pressley concluded that she's seeking to not just "occupy space," but "create it."

None


"And that's why I'm doing this today. It's about self-agency. It's about power. It's about acceptance," she said. "Right now on this journey, when I feel the most unlike myself is when I am wearing a wig. So I think that means I'm on my way."

Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini Take on a Sexist Radio Station Policyhttp://www.wupxae.live/kacey-musgraves-radio-sexism-2644835531.html

Kacey Musgraves and Kelsea Ballerini are both taking a country radio station to task after its sexist airplay policy came to light.

None


Yesterday, the Twitter account of Michigan's 98 KCQ station decided to advertise a bizarre and downright disgusting rule which apparently bars DJs from playing female artists back-to-back.

None

None


"We cannot play two females back to back. Not even Lady Antebellum or Little Big Town against another female," the station wrote in response to Variety's Chris Willman, who asked if an LA country station could be fined for playing female artists back-to-back. "I applaud their courage."

None


Naturally, Musgraves and Ballerini both had some thoughts on this so-called "policy."

None


"Smells like white male bullshit and why LONG ago I decided they cannot stop me," Musgraves wrote above her retweet, before adding, "And yet, they can play 18 dudes who sound exactly the same back to back. Makes total sense."

None


None


Meanwhile, Ballerini — who was also mentioned in Willman's initial tweet — started by addressing "all the ladies that bust their asses to have half the opportunities that men do" via her Twitter.

None


"I'm really sorry that in 2020, after YEARS of conversation of equal play, there are still some companies that make their stations play by these rules," she wrote. "It's unfair and it's incredibly disappointing."

None


And while the radio station's tweet was eventually deleted, that didn't stop Ballerini from posting a screenshot of it to her Instagram, alongside a lengthy caption about how "there is still inequality in airplay for women" on country radio.

None


"Tweets like this prove it. And it's my job to say it out loud and post about it, because of the girls moving to Nashville (or wherever) that are ready to outrun and outwork and outplay everyone. They deserve to know that they have the same shot as the guys moving here to do the same," Ballerini continued, before asking the industry to take a more proactive stance. "Country music- We have to fix this. For us and for them. How do we do it? Let's talk. "

None

I say this having been one of the few women who have been really embraced by country radio and having watched some of the bigger networks (and some of my friends that are pd’s and high up) make real changes in their programming to make it look more balanced. I am grateful. BUT. there is still inequality in airplay for women. And tweets like this prove it. And it’s my job to say it out loud and post about it, because of the girls moving to Nashville ( or wherever) that are ready to outrun and outwork and outplay everyone. They deserve to know that they have the same shot as the guys moving here to do the same. Country music- We have to fix this. For us and for them. How do we do it? Let’s talk. (Also- don’t lash out at this station, they are playing by rules set for them from their higher ups ??)

None


That said, in the wake of the backlash, the 98 KCQ account ended up responding to Ballerini's tweet. Though it's unclear who is in charge of the account and whether it's a different person tweeting, their latest post read, "The conversation continues, Kelsea."

None


"I am not alone in this. And neither is the music industry. (Oscars)," the account said. "Women deserve their share of the airwaves." See the conversation, below.

Ariana Grande Responds to Fans Criticizing Her Outfitshttp://www.wupxae.live/ariana-grande-clothing-criticism-2644834664.html

Ariana Grande is making it clear that she has no time for the fans hating on her signature look.

None


On Wednesday, Grande took to her Twitter to address the perception that she always wears "the same 2 outfits," in reference to her instantly recognizable high pony, oversized sweater, and thigh-high boots combo.

None


It all started yesterday after a fan went viral for reportedly tweeting out a doctored paparazzi photo in which Grande appeared to be wearing a different outfit. And though the initial tweet has since been deleted, it apparently spurred a number of responses criticizing Grande's outfits, including a comment from a fan who said, "she's been wearing the same boots/ long shirt combo for years."

None

None


"We need the insta baddie," the fan continued, later adding, "she could easily stand out without wearing the same 2 outfits." And while Grande's wardrobe has previously been roasted by fans via a TikTok meme based on her love of long sleeves, this most recent commentary appeared to take things a little too far for her liking.

None


"thank god i'm a singer then gimmeee a break," Grande replied, before explaining that the reason people haven't seen the full extent of her wardrobe is partially thanks to an active avoidance of having her photo taken.

None


"I escape the paparazzi almost every time," Grande said. "I never post photos that aren't on stage but shit i promise i have cute ass clothes."

None


None


That said, Grande didn't stop there. In response to another fan writing, "babe we jus want THEE BEST FOR YOU PERIOD," the star wrote, "i already know but also i'm never even seen like ever."

None


"I promise i look cute over here in my own world," she said. "I haven't even been able to put on a pair of fuckin boots lately because of the traumatic image i have in my head of these uh.... tik tok "performers.""

None


None


At the end of the day though, Grande went on promise fans that she'd try to "serve more" looks via her Instagram. And though it has yet to be seen how extensive her wardrobe actually is, we're mostly hoping that means a lot more Crocs with socks action in the near future.

Spiky Cheeks and Conehead Hair at Walter Van Beirendonckhttp://www.wupxae.live/walter-van-beirendonck-mens-2644822951.html

Absurd shapes and political statements were at the center of Walter Van Beirendonck's Men's Fall 2020 presentation in Paris. The Belgian designer, who was once a part of the famed Antwerp Six (a group of Royal Academy of Fine Arts graduates known for their radical design vision in the 1980s) remains known for his blend of unusual colors and use of strong graphics.

None


For Fall 2020, his runway became stage to spiked suits, bomber jackets, colorful patterns and obscure shapes. Amid the array of weird shapes and medley of prints, however, were sharp spikes embellished on the models' cheeks.


None


Dyed to resemble the color of the skin, the prosthetics was courtesy of makeup artist Inge Grognard. The ultra sculpted cheeks were balanced off with minimal to no makeup.

None



But Beirendonck isn't the type to shy away from the dramatic, as hair stylist Charlie Le Mindu topped off many of the spiked looks with brightly painted and colored hair in fiery shades of bright red, orange and pitch black. In some cases models emerged wearing their hair in giant and long coned shapes.


None


Often bordering an almost cartoon-ish aesthetic, the exaggerated hair and makeup signal a mainstream nod to the recent uptick in a range of Instagram makeup artists who have embraced the weird and eccentric.

None


Elsewhere on the runway, while designers such as Rick Owens have consistently employed the use of prosthetics, just last season Balenciaga sent models down the runway with hollowed cheeks and blown-up lips, also courtesy of Grogard.

None


Related | SOPHIE's Whole New World

None


Celebrities such as Lady Gaga have time and again famously embraced the prosthetics, most notably on her April 2011 cover of Harper's Bazaar where she appeared with horns on her forehead, cheekbones and shoulders. "They're my bones," the pop star said at the time. "They've always been inside of me, but I have been waiting for the right time to reveal to the universe who I truly am. They come out when I'm inspired."

None


None


Likewise, in 2018, musician SOPHIE sported extremely sculpted cheeks on the cover of PAPER and also wore prosthetics in her "It's Okay to Cry" music video, released in 2017.

None


The surge in the trend also alludes to the changing landscape of beauty where non-invasive procedures and plastic surgeries have become disturbingly commonplace. This is most reflected within the innumerable amount of makeup filters that use AI to dramatically enhance facial features.

Kat Von D Is Leaving Her Makeup Brandhttp://www.wupxae.live/kat-von-d-beauty-leaving-2644832296.html

Tattoo artist, reality star and makeup guru Kat Von D is stepping away from her eponymous beauty label. As part of the move, the entrepreneur has sold her ownership shares to Kendo, the LVMH beauty incubator that is also responsible for Marc Jacobs Beauty and Fenty Beauty.

None


Going forward, Kendo will have complete control of all operations and the company will reportedly be rebranded as KVD Vegan Beauty.

None


After more than 12 drama-riddled years at the brand, Von D said her decision was motivated by wanting to spend more time on her vegan shoe line and her singing career.

None


"This past year has been one of great change for me," she said in a statement. "As many of you know, I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy, launched my vegan shoe line and am now busy prepping to release my long-awaited album in the spring, followed by an international tour! As much as I wish I could balance all of this, on top of continuing my makeup line, it has become clear to me that I just can't do everything at the maximum capacity.This was not an easy decision, but after careful consideration, I decided I wanted the makeup line to continue to thrive and grow, and Kendo is primed to do just that."


None


Launched in 2008, Kat Von D Beauty acquired a cult status over the years for its cruelty-free products, most notably liquid eyeliner and long lasting lipsticks.

None


Despite a successful run with products sold across 36 countries, Von D's brand faced a lot of criticism for the makeup artist's widely public beef with Jeffree Star, her controversial stance on vaccines, and accusations of anti-semitism by another tattoo artist during her short reality TV stint on Miami Ink.

None


None


Although she eventually clarified her position on almost all of the above in a lengthy YouTube video, the string of controversies has continued to follow her throughout her career. Her departure signals a fresh start for the brand.

Gigi Hadid Will Not Serve on the Harvey Weinstein Juryhttp://www.wupxae.live/gigi-hadid-weinstein-jury-2644829924.html

It's official: Gigi Hadid will not be a juror for the Harvey Weinstein trial taking place in New York City. The model walked away from the Manhattan court, marking her dismissal on the eighth day of jury selection.

None


As of today, January 16th, 2020, five jurors have been selected for the Weinstein trial. Several more jurors still need to be picked to hear the case, but this morning it was announced that model Gigi Hadid would not be one of them. While the main reason for her dismissal is not clear, several claims were brought about by Weinstein's lawyer, Arthur Aidala, as to why Hadid should not serve on the jury.

None

From stimulating the already high-stakes publicity surrounding the case, to her friendship with Cara Delevingne –– who has publicly made allegations against Weinstein –– it's become clear over the course of the jury selection that Hadid would likely not become a juror in the end. Hadid originally entered the court as one of almost 120 possible jurors brought in for questioning.

'Falling' Finds Beauty in Brokennesshttp://www.wupxae.live/dana-levinson-zen-pace-falling-2644831127.html

Muted hues of blue, black and nude fill the screen, as a trans woman coping with a debilitating opioid addiction faces her younger self.

None


The desire to tell a trans story not fixated on transness, but rather a fuller depiction of humanity, is what fuels "Falling," the raw new music video/ "visual album" directed by filmmaker Zen Pace (they/them) and starring actor, writer and musician Dana Aliya Levinson (they/she). The project premieres today on PAPER.

None


None


"While it's important that aspirational trans narratives exist, it's also important that ones dealing with trans pain exist, too," Levinson says. "There's healing in collective processing through art. True parity is when we can have a trans lead who is messy, complicated and unafraid of the dark. It's an opportunity that cis, straight, white, male characters are afforded without question."

None


Related | NikkieTutorials Comes Out as Trans

None


Levinson's alter ego in "Falling," a character they created named Shira Rose Loewenstein, is searching for a way out of her pain, but is nonetheless trapped by her demons. Dancers intertwine their bodies with Levinson's, visually representing the intense, visceral emotions heard musically.

None


In many ways, "Falling' is a response to a lack of mainstream trans stories told by trans people not preoccupied with trans identity. Levinson's Shira Rose was thus born as a "sliding doors" version of them, and "Falling" is just the first part of a larger story. FRAUD, a pilot Levinson has been writing and producing that begins filming this winter, is partially autobiographical.

None


"Many of the issues in Shira's life are pulled from my own autobiography: financial distress, co-dependence, substance abuse and historical trauma," Levinson says. "She became a place for me to process all of that grief outside the bounds of a script. These issues are rampant within the TGNC [trans and gender nonconforming] community and yet they haven't been significantly addressed in entertainment."

None


None


None


None


To further spotlight this need for representation, in the scenes where Shira Rose faces her childlike self, it was important to cast a young, gender nonconforming actor. Pace and Levinson found an ideal match in Allex Jording, whose pronouns are xe/xir.

None


"I feel like if there's a chance for me to put queer people or any marginalized groups in positions where they will be respectfully represented and not tokenized, then we have to take it and make that space," Pace explains.

None


And where Shira is concerned, it was necessary for the creators to show a complex trans character grappling with her unglamorous present, rather than "showing her in the 'before and after' narrative that cis gender storytellers are often fixated on," Pace says.

None

Pace and Levinson expand Shira's narrative in FRAUD, a story that allows her to fall in love unexpectedly. And trans love is, as Pace says, "something we can all fight for." Support FRAUD's production, which is created by queer, TGNC people and women, by donating here via Seed & Spark.

The 1975 Release New Song and Tour Dateshttp://www.wupxae.live/the-1975-me-and-you-together-song-tour-2644829860.html

"I'm sorry that I'm kinda queer/ It's not as weird as it appears," The 1975 frontman Matty Healy whines over strumming guitar on the band's newest single, "Me & You Together Song." He follows it up with an admission, one that's nearly apologetic, but accepting all the same: "It's 'cause my body doesn't stop me."

None


The new track is the fourth to be released from the Manchester band's forthcoming studio album, Notes On A Conditional Form. Matty Healy recently announced a delay of the album's release, which was originally scheduled for next month but is now April 24, 2020. If "Me & You Together Song" is any indication of the material on the upcoming record, then it will have been well worth the wait upon its full rollout.

None


Related | The 1975's New Music Is A Hard Punk Pivot

None


A departure from the punk-tinted "People" and the UK garage-influenced "Frail State of Mind," the new song is a callback to '90s era dream-pop. Approaching Marcy Playground levels of dreamy melancholy, "Me & You Together Song" is entirely a love song, one filled with longing. In typical Matty Healy fashion, the verses and chorus are revelations about love and lust, while somehow remaining sonically nihilistic. Perhaps it's the enduring soft-rock instrumental track, which captivates the majority of the song's frequencies. Healy's voice is merely supplemental, with the guitar plucks telling the story all the same as the lovelorn lyrics.

None


"Me & You Together Song," while serene to some extent — it's easy to imagine swaying in a lover's arms to the track — is rather unsettling as well. Something about the track is full-blast and full-volume, making love and longing a point of contention rather than celebration.

None


Along with the new song, The 1975 have announced a full spring 2020 North American tour for Notes On A Conditional Form. Phoebe Bridgers is opening! Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 24, at 9AM local time, and pre-sale tickets are available now.

There's Hope For Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butlerhttp://www.wupxae.live/vanessa-hudgens-austin-butler-back-together-2644831098.html

2020 has been a big year for celebrity break ups so far, but hold up on Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler. E! reports that the two actors, who recently and devastatingly split after nine years together, aren't ruling out a romantic reunion once their schedules align again.

None


"They're just shooting on two different continents and it's a matter of distance," says a hopeful source. "There is no bad blood at all, and they have a lot of respect for each other."

None

A second source is even more of a tease. According to this mysterious insider, while Vanessa and Austin are "split for now," they're "going to see what happens. Given their "history and deep connection they could find their way back to one another."

None


Neither Hudgens nor Butler has publicly confirmed the break up, but they're definitely in different places right now, career-wise and geographically. After a turn in Tarantino's Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood, Austin's set to star in Baz Luhrmann's Elvis Presley biopic, after beating off competition from the likes of Harry Styles. Vanessa has also kept busy lately shooting Netflix's Princess Switch sequel. I personally believe she should be cast in a prestige studio role also, @Hollywood.

SONIKKU Toasts All the Crazy Lovershttp://www.wupxae.live/sonikku-chester-lockhart-premiere-2644830651.html

When people fall head-over-heels, some embrace the rush of new romance, while others destroy it. Today, London DJ/producer SONIKKU and pop singer Chester Lockhart share their new synth-filled dance track in praise of the latter tactic.

"Remember to Forget Me," directed by SONIKKU, premieres today on PAPER, and features choreographed scenes by Peter Babbage and Luke Bafico of London-based queer dance collective Pierre & Baby.

SONNIKU calls "Remember to Forget Me" the most personal song on his upcoming album, Joyful Death (out April 17), adding that it is an ode to lovestruck, irrational behavior. Lockhart's lyrics certainly seem hellbent on self-destruction: "I'm selfish, I'm mean/ Nothing is ever as it seems/ I fall away from you/ Remember to forget me," he sings in the rousing chorus. Grimes collaborator HANA, who engineered the song, only adds to its already addictive qualities.

Ezra Furman Is Angry. Aren't You?http://www.wupxae.live/ezra-furman-interview-twelve-nudes-2644830237.html

Protest music in the Trump era has ranged from self-congratulatory gimmicks to moving, heartfelt creations. Regardless, nearly all efforts have felt deeply inert — deluded about the scale of the threats we face, unabashedly cynical, or plainly sanctioned by the powers that be.

None


The white noise makes Ezra Furman's airhorn of a new album Twelve Nudes intensely gratifying. The 33-year-old singer-songwriter, an under-the-radar indie darling for the past decade who recently gained a new audience on the soundtrack of Netlflix's popular Sex Education, rails against the wealthy and powerful with lyrics that could be straight out of the Little Red Songbook and feedback-rich punk riffs straight out of CBGBs.

None


"What makes a man take a hammer in his hand/ Shatter every last window of the company store," she spits on "Trauma," adding later: "The empire's in its autumn, when it's built from the bottom and the bottom won't build."

None


While artists like SOPHIE use futuristic sounds to destabilize the present, Furman's prototypical punk is rooted in anti-authoritarian traditions of the past. Yet it doesn't sound dated. Even when singing in archetypes and marching chants, Furman addresses unmistakably modern dilemmas. Her confessions of complacency on "Evening Prayer aka Justice" ("I wasted my twenties in submission/ I thought I was outside the system/ But I was rollin' over for wealth and power") will sound familiar to any working twentysomething.

None

None


For that reason, her plea to a generation that can't decide whether to revolt tomorrow or just ask for a promotion, feels like one people might actually answer: "If you've got the taste for transcendence/ Translate your love into action/ And participate in the fight now/ For a creed you can truly believe."

Furman didn't set out to make a protest album. Rather, she says she tried to think about "what is concerning me on the deepest level and make an album about that." As a trans woman and observant Jew, Furman's daily anxieties have political implications. When she aches for a boyfriend on her moody slow dance "I Wanna Be Your Girlfriend," and shrieks "TRANS POWA" on interlude "Blown," both moments explode scripts of palatable queerness. When she distills a panic attack into song form on "Calm Down aka I Should Not Be Alone," serenades the void on "Transition from Nowhere to Nowhere," and describes living with a constant low-grade fever of anxiety on "Thermometer," Furman denormalizes the daily struggles of marginalized people living in America. In doing so, she suggests that an alternative is possible.

None


Activists can't be cynical. Behind Furman's wry smile, Twelve Nudes is a deeply earnest album. Both the love songs and the rallying cries are unmistakably hungry for liberation. "I refuse to call this living life," Furman sings on "My Teeth Hurt," "but I refuse to die."

None


PAPER got Furman on the phone to talk Twelve Nudes, the new season of Sex Education, and the unexpected links between punk rock and Judaism.

None


None


It feels like there's two big threads running through this record: a personal struggle with gender and a political struggle with class.

None


Despite the fact that this record is openly political, and despite the fact that it's written with care and attention, it is above all an emotional document. By which I mean, I'm talking mostly about my emotional reaction to politics and social realities. The more I think about it, the more I think I don't have much to say about politics or gender or class or any of it, except the plain, brutal stuff. Maybe it's a political thing to say, "it seems like the rich are killing the poor and getting away with it." I think that it's true and I don't think it's very nuanced. It's not political analysis. It's just the brutal fact.

None


There's something purposely ham-fisted about my writing on this record. Like, the line: "I wanna be your girlfriend." It's not a nuanced comment about gender. It's not a sharp analysis. It's just a naked statement of what I feel. There's a lot to take issue with, in these blunt statements, like me saying I want to be a heterosexual monogamous cliché. There's a lot of footnotes you could give to it. But it feels necessary to just say the simple, blunt thing.

None


Yeah, the footnotes don't tend to make as good rock songs.

None


—don't make as much impact.

None


Or protest songs. Twelve Nudes is some of the best contemporary protest music I've heard, especially given a lot of contemporary political or protest music feels empty or toothless. What do you think is the secret to good protest music?

None


I feel like I don't hear much open protest music, or many people calling their music protest music. I've been calling my music protest music pretty much the whole time I've been writing songs. But yeah, this stuff is more obviously protest music. I really didn't set out to make a protest record, any more than usual. I just did what I usually do, which is to be in touch with my soul, what is concerning me on the deepest level, and trying to make a record about that. That sometimes turns into love songs and sometimes into political songs.

None


None


So, you didn't set out to write a protest record, but you did turn to a distinctly punk sound. I've read you talking about the album, as if "the time had come" for you to make a punk record. Could you explain what you mean? Why did you always know you'd make a punk album?

None


It was the first music that I wanted to make when I was young. I joined a band when I was 14 that was trying to be a punk band. I never ended up playing a show with them, but it was the first music that was mine. I thought that if I managed to be a musician, I would be in a punk band. Probably not the singer. I thought I would be a guitar player in a punk band, maybe contribute some songs. Then I got into all kinds of other music. So it feels like a bedrock thing.

None


If I made the most intuitive thing I could, it would be like a Buzzcocks-type punk tune. It's almost weird that I never made a record that sounded like punk before. I guess the reason is that I worried it would be like karaoke. You know, making something that already existed.

None


"I've been calling my music protest music pretty much the whole time I've been writing songs."

None


What finally fell into place for you?

None


It was brewing a long time. There would always be some punk-y songs, but I'd never think they were my strongest ones. Like the song "Tip of a Match" is an example. But they never coalesced into a group of songs. Our records were scattershot, sonic-wise, until this one. Even this one a little bit. The actual answer is just, rising anxiety and anger. I felt more anxious and angry in the past few years than I have before. Since I got a smartphone, really, cause you just get terrible news. It just comes at you so fast.

None


That went together with a boost in confidence of some kind. Our last record, for me, Transangelic Exodus, proved something to myself. I was able to accomplish a lot of things I wasn't sure I was capable of. I found my voice in a deeper way. And that made me think if I made a punk record, I could make it my own. I would have something to add. Like, I was a strong enough a writer to justify making that loud noise that we've heard for so many decades, that sounds like other bands.

None

None


That's funny that you felt like you needed to prove yourself to make this music that's supposed to be raw and primal and amateur.

None


Yeah, that is how I think of it. Part of me is like, everyone can make a punk record — punk thought everyone deserves to be heard. But I needed the confidence, because the other voice in my head is like, "that record's already been made." Doing something weird and hard to categorize is more obviously worthwhile to me, because you might not have made a perfect album, but you made something that doesn't exist already.

None


None


Once you'd committed to this album, was it exciting to play around with the genre, and draw on the history of punk?

None


It was exciting. A major factor in making a punk record was that I wrote a book about Lou Reed. That was an opportunity to explore a lot of things. At the end of the book, the question I found myself asking was, "What is a punk? Is Lou Reed a punk?" In the final scene in the book, it was when I saw him live at SXSW and all these artists did covers of his songs. [Reed] ended the performance triumphantly saying, "I love punk rock. And I was the first one." I was like, "what?" Something was off about that to me. 'Cause I had never heard him say anything so positive and unambiguous before [laughs]. I'm saying too much there, but it left me wondering, what is this thing, punk, at its deepest root?

None


Lou Reed might be one of the best articulators of the deepest root behind punk. Ending the book on that question felt like it was pointing me towards, "Why are you into punk? And how come you look so different from so many punks?" I've been trying to write lately about why I do a traditional Jewish practice, and why I'm super into punk rock. I've been into both of those things since I was about 15. And why they seem to go together for me. I was in this mode of asking: "Why does it seem so vital?" That pushed me to listen to tons of punk all the time. Then I found myself writing Twelve Nudes.

None


"Doing something weird and hard to categorize is more obviously worthwhile to me, because you might not have made a perfect album, but you made something that doesn't exist already."

None


What do you feel is the thread between punk rock and your Jewish practice?

None


It's hard to say. They are both counter cultures. They were the voices I found at a young age that were saying, "What most people are doing is not the thing you should do. You should do this uncompromising other thing, that is fiercely loyal to certain principles and ways of thinking." Judaism also... on some levels it sounds crazy to say, but Judaism immediately seems anti-authoritarian to me. It just rings that way instantly. I know there's a lot of counter-examples of that from the real world of lived Judaism. But on deep intellectual levels, it's for the underdog, for the minority in a larger culture, for the poor against the rich, the royalty.

None


None


Does that understanding of Jewishness comes from the history of Jewish rebels and activists, or the actual tenor of Jewish spirituality?

None


It comes most of all from the Bible. From the texts and spirituality… how Judaism looked to me when I was a teenager, and how it still looks to me sometimes now. But especially, it comes from when I was a teenager, reaching for a way to be furious and not just talk about television all the time. I knew a few kids who were obsessed with God and justice and transcendent, hard-to-say-things, and I was like, "That feels right." They were also doing it in a culture where nobody wanted me to do that. Nobody wanted me to end every Saturday not using electricity. I sensed that something like [practicing Shabbat] was a kind of declaration of independence from the culture around me, which was leaving me cold at the time.

None


Spiritual Judaism itself becomes resistance, when there's such rigid expectations for how you're supposed to live your life and say, spend your Saturday.

None


And a lot of religious Jews really have a stance of like, "the world is crazy, the world at large is crazy." I think it is too, and I just don't want to be adapted. I don't want to be well-adjusted to a world that's crazy.

None


What is your Jewish practice like today?

None


The most notable and, I guess I'd say, intrusive — the thing that people around me notice — is that I observe Shabbat. From just before sundown on Friday to when the stars come out on Saturday night, I have a day of rest and no work. No writing, no use of electricity, no use of money, no travel, all this stuff. All these observances so that I have this day dedicated to the spirit that is totally different from the rest of my week.

None


Is observing Shabbat, having that day of rest and differentiation, a part of your creative practice?

None


I wouldn't say that's in the top ten things that it does. It means more than it sounds like it means, I've determined that to be true. It's a day of freedom that is quite deep. It's more like the rest of the week is the fuel for it. I want to make the world better and to enjoy the world. Shabbat is the day that I enjoy it, I don't try to change it at all. It satisfies the urge to go be a monk away from all society. It's not solitary at all, but it's solitary from technology and capitalism. It's like touching utopia, weekly. It reminds us of what we want the world to be like.

None


None


On the record, there's a number of references to a period of your life when you "drank the Kool-Aid." You sing that you "wasted your 20's in submission." When and what was that time for you? When did it end?

None


Well. [laughs] It honestly feels like on this record, I'm trying to figure out, "Am I trying to be well-adjusted or not?", "Am I doing well at being a serious fighter, at noticing what's wrong and what needs to be said and what needs to be done?" It's me looking back at my whole adult life, and saying: "I have not been taking what's wrong seriously enough." You could probably say the same of me now. But I'm trying to say, as a citizen, that what I used to think is sufficient is not.

None


"I don't want to be well-adjusted in a world that's crazy."

None


What did you used to think was sufficient? What did you realize was wrong with that?

None


I thought that I was doing the work that I needed to do by being an artist. It seemed like a mighty thing not to get a normal job. I thought it was activism just to not work at a multinational corporation. I thought it was enough to be an artist, like, not getting a 9-5 is my cry of dissent. But it's not. That doesn't do that much. As an artist, I was still part of the hyper-capitalist plan for all of us. Just 'cause like, I never did a Coke ad — I wish I had something smarter to say about this. It's really just saying, "No! More! I need to dissent more! I've been cooperating when I thought I was not cooperating."

None


How do you approach being an anti-capitalist artist? The music industry makes that hard.

None


What I want is for objection to participation in hyper-capitalism to be legitimate and widely seen that way. It's really hard to know how to phrase this, I've been noticing that people don't think it's legitimate to object. People don't think... the word sellout is not used anymore.

None

None


Should we bring back the term "sellout"?

None


I think we should bring back calling people sellouts. [laughs] No... I don't actually think we should bring back "sellout." But I would say we need to recognize that there is a real, urgent impulse beyond just catty elitism behind calling someone a sellout. Bands get their song on a Corona beer commercial and they just don't mind. They sell it for nothing. So many artists are just so delighted to get $5,000 from a billionaire. I was so delighted to get $6,000 from the Billabong corporation when they used my song in 2012 in some ad. But to be honest, I have no idea what I would have done if I didn't get that money. So it's a hard argument to make. That's why "sellout" doesn't seem like a word anyone wants to use anymore when we're all starving and such. I'm babbling, but I want the impulse to be taken seriously. If we must take their money to survive, I would hope we do it with nausea, not with glee.

None


None


I think people feel really helpless. Artists and fans. When you see a band do something you wish they didn't, it does feel empty or useless to criticize them for trying to survive, or because everyone does it.

None


I mean, I buy DP gasoline. Right now, I don't have a good alternative. But I don't, like, use their social media hashtag [laughs]. That's what starts to creep me out, the culture around it. Not that you're keeping your money at Bank of America, but that you'll willingly advertise for companies the way they want you to.

None


It was really cool to see a group of bands drop off of that Amazon music festival and take their music off the streaming service. Obviously it's a drop in the bucket, but it makes you feel a twinge of hope. How do you deal with despair, and with cynicism?

None


You can legitimately say that for Amazon, it's a drop in the bucket. But then you see it five years later, when a bunch of stuff is different and people are spending their money differently and living and voting differently. Our enemies are doing that kind of change in the darkness, too. By the enemy I'm usually thinking of hyper-capitalism and white supremacy.

None


I guess it's just getting older. I used to just think it takes 50 years for the world to be different. Then I saw the world change so much in seven years. The way people talk about change and the kind of people that we support and the ways we spend our money, I mean... it's inarguable that everything looks quite different than it did seven years ago. I don't believe in upwards or downwards change at large. Specific things get worse and better all the time, all at once. This kind of thinking is why I talk a lot about what I care about. It changes the culture in my audience, it changes the culture around my band. That kind of stuff affects people who take in art. And those kinds of cultural changes, change everything.

None


Tell us a bit about working on Sex Education season two. Were you inspired by the show?

None


We just made a bunch of music and let them choose what they liked. They sent us all the scripts, and that did influence us a lot, but I think they hired us because of what we're already like. So we made music that sounds to us, like us.

None


What do you think attracted the creators of this show to your music in particular?

None


I think I've maintained a connection to the angst and honesty of the teenage years, of most people's teenage years. They might see the vulnerability in my music, a kind of sweet vulnerability really comes through, and that resonates with some teenage stuff.

None


I was going to ask if you revisited your own teenage years to write for the show, but I think you answered that.

None


Yeah. The human heart doesn't change that much. We also feel all the feelings that we think of as teenage. They come out like they did in high school, but all that raw stuff is still there.

The 2020 Gov Ball Lineup Is Insanely Goodhttp://www.wupxae.live/gov-ball-2020-lineup-2644830208.html

The New York City Governors Ball music festival is returning for June 2020, and the complete lineup (announced today) is equal parts niche, queer, mainstream and classic. We can't wait.

None


This year's roster is unmatched by competing fests. There is truly a headlining act for everyone, from Tame Impala and Vampire Weekend to Missy Elliott and Stevie Nicks. Superstar producer Jack Antonoff's presence will surely be felt as well, considering that collaborator Carly Rae Jepsen is performing in addition to his Bleachers project making a huge comeback.

It's one of the festival's most curated lineups to date, and rightfully so — 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the festival.

Manchado Has a Big Swordhttp://www.wupxae.live/manchado-asesina-premiere-2644822970.html

Whether he's covering Selena Quintanilla or giving us a sprawling wayward ranchero epic, Brooklyn-based Manchado has always found a way to live out his wildest fantasies through music. In his latest video for single "Asesina," he's looking to conquer his inner demons and master the blade.

None

None


"'Asesina' was one of the first songs I wrote experimenting with reggaeton and latin sounds," Manchado says. "The video expands on the idea of how addiction initiates as this very desirable thing that evolves into something that can kill you." Giving shape to that seductive yet destructive force in the shape of dancer, Gabriella Alexis, Manchado transforms an invisible battle of will into a total face off.

None


None


Following in the footsteps of noted sword enthusiasts like Grimes and Dorian Electra, Manchado adds his own spin to the genre by swapping out broadswords for machetes as he goes toe-to-toe with his foe. Jumping from rooftops to park-side pavilions, the video for "Asesina" sees Manchado lean into his flair for the cinematic with snakes and a darker underbelly than usual.

None


Sparring one minute in a game of chess and being pulled in to an intimate tango the next, Manchado dramatizes the allure of addiction while at the same time exposing it as the double-edged sword it truly is. "Usually in reggaeton music videos, women are seen as a mere sex object and men as a dominant force," he says. "I wanted to create a different dynamic and position the female character as the dominating force who eventually kills me."

Miss Fame Joins Supermodels for a Charity Calendarhttp://www.wupxae.live/cr-calendar-2020-miss-fame-2644823303.html

Miss Fame is in good company. The multi-hyphenate drag queen, entrepreneur and makeup artist is among a stellar group of supermodels chosen to pose for the annual CR calendar by Carine Roitfeld, the renowned French stylist.

None


The biggest names in fashion are all part of the prolific cast, including Cindy Crawford, Alek Wek and Irina Shayk. Miss Fame is, of course, an in-demand model in her own right. Since her memorable appearance as a contestant in RuPaul's Drag Race, where she served high fashion and runway looks each week, Miss Fame has posed in editorials for countless international editions of Vogue, sat front row at Marc Jacobs shows and partied with Naomi Campbell.

"I wanted to model, I wanted to be able to be in front of cameras, I wanted to be able to work with photographers that I respected when I was a kid," Miss Fame previously told PAPER. "I wanted to be able to create the visual that I was looking at in Vogue, these really powerful women that looked like their hair was flying."

None


This year, the prestigious CR calendar takes form in a series of T-shirts — 12 to be exact, one for each month of the year — which is printed with each model and their corresponding zodiac sign. The total proceeds for the shirts go to a charity of the model's choosing, and Miss Fame (a Cancer) chose the Hetrick-Martin Institute, the country's longest-running service organization dedicated to LGBTQ+ youth.

Miss Fame has a long history of work with the non-profit, having mentored its youth members during last year's Pride season with Make Up For Ever. She also donated a portion of sales of the Under My Skin Collection from her beauty brand to HMI. Her history with Carine Roitfeld also goes way back, with the stylist booking Miss Fame for a stunning editorial in CR Fashion Book.

"We're thrilled to create the first ever 't-shirt calendar' for our annual CR Calendar with 12 models who represent beauty in all different forms, captured not only through the lens of astrology and philanthropy, but with Brianna's daring aesthetic," said Roitfeld in a statement, referring to trailblazing feminist photographer Brianna Capozzi, who shot the images.

Take the '2020 Prom Challenge' and Win Money For Promhttp://www.wupxae.live/2020-prom-challenge-enter-comp-2644814016.html

There are... many reasons to register to vote in a presidential election that will determine not only this country's fate but likely that of the entire planet. But here's a cuter one than universal healthcare or climate change policy: you could win $5,000 to put towards your school's prom. Or, if you don't feel much like renting a limousine when the presidency is at stake, that prize money may also be donated towards further voter registration efforts.

None


Thanks to When We All Vote — the non-partisan non-profit chaired by the likes of Michelle Obama and Lin-Manuel Miranda — 20 high schools with "the most creative and impactful voter registration programs" will be selected to win the prize money and throw a lit party slash registration drive.

Megan Thee Stallion Is Bringing Hot Girl Texas Style to Your Wardrobehttp://www.wupxae.live/megan-thee-stallion-depop-shop-2644820455.html

Houston has been a hotbed of creatives since forever. The city has given us everyone from Beyoncé to Tom Ford, proving the popular adage that everything is bigger in Texas. It's also the hometown of none other than Megan Thee Stallion, who some may or may not know has a love for vintage fashion.

The rapper even has her own shop on Depop, the vintage marketplace app that's particularly loved by Gen Z. "My stylist introduced me to Depop a while ago, and he used to always come to me with all of these amazing '90s and early 2000's-inspired clothes which I really loved," she tells PAPER of how she first got involved. "He would always discover some gems, and every time he got something from Depop it caught my eye."

Indeed, since first launching her shop, she's sold everything from Baby Phat bike shorts to Fubu bomber jackets. Recently, Meg connected with a group of Depop's top sellers in Houston, who all curated a Texan-tinged lookbook of 90 pre-worn items for the app called Texas Fever. (It's also the first time they partner with a celebrity.)

Vaquera Model's Angsty Walk Goes Viralhttp://www.wupxae.live/vaquera-viral-runway-2644816548.html

In case you need further proof that moody catwalks make for great memes, the internet is currently obsessed with one Vaquera model's bratty runway stomp — and for good reason.

None


Much like that Margiela model's aggressive walk, a recently resurfaced clip from Vaquera's Fall 2019 ready-to-wear show has gone viral thanks to the model's angsty, overdramatic runway, which gives off some intense "Ugh, MOM" energy.

Rihanna?


None


With the launch of one of the most popular cosmetics labels in the world today, Rihanna became an important voice for an entire community otherwise almost completely ignored by the beauty industry. Offering over 40 shades of foundations accounting for almost every skin color, Fenty Beauty set a standard within the industry that has for decades has only treated diversity as an afterthought. Now with its multiple range of highlighters, bronzers, blush compacts and lip glosses, the singer has also expanded the business to a fashion label under LVMH. Today, Rihanna is one of the best selling music artists, fashion entrepreneur and undoubtedly, the beauty influencer of the year. ––Jeena Sharma

"Euphoria"


None


When HBO's latest teen drama, Euphoria first hit the screens last summer, it bolstered the young demographic of suburban America that otherwise existed outside of the mainstream. Unlike many other Hollywood executives, creator Sam Levinson wasn't interested in token representation or ticking boxes, but an unabashed portrayal of struggles that actually plagued teens across America today including addiction, mental health and identity issues. Of course, that was never an easy task as it no doubt invited the scorn of conservative parents who deemed the show's often explicit content "inappropriate." Regardless, Euphoria hit a chord with a generation that is on the constant outs with boomers and older millennials alike, leading into a swift renewal into the second season. ––Jeena Sharma

Foe Thee Frenchie?


None


Foe Thee Frenchie, leader of Hot Dog Summer and First of his Name truly has the life we all want: Jet setting by day and cuddling up to Megan Thee Stallion by night. With too much personality for mama Meg's Instagram, he finally tired of sharing the spotlight and made his own account in August of 2019. Honestly? It has been a gift to us all. He keeps his paws on these other girls' necks with sponsored posts some human influencers would kill for, takes regular trips on private jets and goes on designer shopping sprees. Hot Boy 4oe truly outsells any other bitch on Instagram and if you're not following I feel bad for you. Real hot dog shit only. ––Taylor Roberts

Greta Thunberg?


None


We shouldn't need Greta Thunberg, and she'd be the first to admit it. The scientific community has been united in its concern over climate change for the past 40 years, issuing dire warning after dire warning. No one listened –– not the boomers, not Gen X, not millennials either. Now Gen Z is fighting to save the planet against worsening odds, with Thunberg as their leader. Over the past 12 months, the 17-year-old has led global school strikes and held her own against Trump on Twitter. It's hard to feel hope right now, but she's a powerful reminder to channel fear into action. ––Kat Gillespie

Lil Nas X


None


Lil Nas X's meteoric rise to Billboard chart domination did not come without some haters — read: racists. As soon as his debut bop, "Old Town Road," started taking off, the song about riding a horse 'til you can't no more was deemed "not country enough" and briefly removed from the country music charts. Thankfully everyone from fans to music critics to Billy Ray Cyrus himself refused to stand for the Nas X erasure and Billboard reversed their dumbass decision. The clapback of it all? Nas X's "Old Town Road" went on to sit on the iron throne that is the music charts for a record breaking 17 weeks. His is arguably the most impressive entry into the music industry. And that's on yeehaw. ––Taylor Roberts

Jonas Brothers?


None


It was the Jonas Brothers' internet in 2019, we were just scrolling through it. Even before the official comeback, their deliciously gossip-worthy parade of nuptials found us unwaveringly invested in Nick, Joe and Kevin's lives and careers, six years after the band broke up. When their blissed out summer bop "Sucker" went No. 1, becoming the biggest hit by a boyband in 15 years, it was clear that the Jonas Brothers reuniting in 2019 wasn't a glitch in the system. Having grown up, gotten laid, chilled out and set their fraternal feuds to rest, the trio was free to become the stars they were always capable of being. ––Jael Goldfine

Savage x Fenty Runway Show


None


To say that Rihanna simply changed the fashion game this year would be a huge understatement. The superstar seemingly touched every corner of the industry, from her historic Fenty luxury brand launch with LVMH to the continued success of her beauty empire. But no one was quite prepared for what Rih had up her sleeve on September 10, when she staged an epic 40-minute fashion-entertainment blowout in Brooklyn for her revolutionary lingerie line Savage x Fenty. The show was held during New York Fashion Week, but spectators had a strong suspicion this would be no ordinary runway. A slew of hitmakers of the moment like Halsey, Migos, DJ Khaled and Big Sean performed with the likes of Normani, Aquaria, Bella Hadid, Laverne Cox and the diverse cast of models that commanded the runway in the brand's inclusive and body-positive lingerie offerings. And best of all, the show was made available to watch via Amazon in over 200 countries, allowing people everywhere to partake in the magic and mystique of one of the most important shows of the year. ––Mario Abad

Cara Delevingne and Ashely Benson?


None


Where were you when Cara and Ashley gleefully carried a big ol' sex bench into their Los Angeles home in full view of the paparazzi? It was the best possible way to confirm a rumored love affair between the models slash actresses, and they've only delighted us more in the months since –– with a rumored proposal in France, a sweet Pride-themed Instagram post and a briefly terrifying Twitter hack moment. The sex bench was supposedly a gag gift for a friend, but that's somehow even cooler. We love love. ––Kat Gillespie

Jennifer Aniston and "Friends"?


None


As the Seinfeld bros will tell you, there exist many more elevated sitcoms than Friends. True fans don't care. Like a Central Perk cappuccino served in an oversized mug, the NBC hit is comfortingly frothy –– a tacky '90s throwback to be enjoyed on your laptop after a hard day under neo-fascism. Jennifer Aniston's nostalgic new Instagram account, which is heavy on the cast reunion photos, extends the escapism onto social media. And thank God, because her breakout show was recently removed from Netflix. ––Kat Gillespie

BLACKPINK


None


When it comes to global sensations, BLACKPINK is one of the biggest. The triumphant horns of "Kill This Love," alone, prove the group won't go down without a fight — and it's clearly resonating. At 265 million streams and counting, the song is a heroic call-to-arms for all to torch their toxic relationships and leap into their power. Not to mention, the "Kill This Love" video beat out Ariana Grande for the biggest-ever music video debut on YouTube at the time, racking up 56.7 million views in its first 24 hours live. Beyond that, the kinetic live performances of BLACKPINK members Jisoo, Jennie, Lisa and Rosé further establish them as a bonafide music force to watch (did you see them historically killing it at Coachella?) Plus, as globally famous Asian women, they bring a refreshing and new kind of supergroup to the table, making more room for others to follow. ––Michael Love Michael

Ok Boomer


None


Peter Kuli and Jed Will's "ok boomer" is Gen Z rock 'n' roll, the antithesis of normative radio-ready trap-pop and a foot-in-the-ass to adults everywhere. A fusion of blown-out bass and punk vocals, "ok boomer" is scrappy and abrasive, but spawned a phrase so much more versatile than just the single. The intergenerational digital war waged by the track was fierce, but more than anything, it gave teens a quick shutdown for their older online opponents. No argument and no politician's Twitter mentions are safe from the wrath of "ok boomer," and honestly, the internet is a better place for it. ––Brendan Wetmore

Billie Eilish


None


Billie Eilish whispered, growled and slurped her way into our hearts last year. She shook up our previously static notion of what a teenage hitmaker can look and sound like, reviving our appetite for good old-fashioned pop weirdness. The rabid internet obsession with her every move is evidence of just how badly Gen Z was craving an alternative woman artist –– their own Avril Lavigne in basketball shorts, amidst a sea of bodysuited, big-haired divas. Based on the kinds of risks she took When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go and how far it brought her from "Ocean Eyes," 2019 is just the beginning of EIlish's disruption. ––Jael Goldfine

Zendaya


None


With a daring approach to evening wear and natural affinity for risk-taking, Zendaya was the indisputable queen of the red carpet in 2019. Her fruitful partnership with longtime stylist Law Roach has paid dividends as she evolved quite rapidly from budding teen star to leading Hollywood actress. While other celebs may have had more outlandish and one-off style moments that went viral, the Euphoria star managed to serve consistently high-fashion looks year-round, always surprising us with how equally comfortable she looks in a striking Berluti pantsuit as she does in a Poison Ivy-esque Vera Wang bustier dress. And how could we forget her playful Cinderella moment at the Met Gala, capturing everyone's hearts with her magic wand and glass slipper? From movie premieres to awards season to talk show appearances, Zendaya proved that celebrities shouldn't have to take themselves too seriously to make a fashion statement. It's that sense of versatility and adaptability that cemented her status as the red carpet's leading lady. ––Mario Abad

@brittany_


None


Even if you don't know her name, you know her story; also known as Kombucha Girl, Brittany Broski took the internet by storm in 2019 with her wit, charm, and of course, distaste for kombucha. Brittany's rise to fame has truly captured the new influencer frontiers of TikTok, demonstrating just how random –– and yet, correct –– virality can be. Now, give her a damn television show, Comedy Central. ––Brendan Wetmore

ContraPoints?


None


It's easy to take a default political position without interrogating why you feel a certain way about whatever hot button topic. Luckily, Natalie Wynn's philosophy YouTube channel ContraPoints is here to help. Rather than repeating the same old hashtags, ContraPoints encourages precise thought about (New York Times podcast voice) the big issues that divide us. Wynn's in-depth explainer videos engage viewers with costumes and quips, interrogating everything from capitalism to cancel culture — a topic she has wide perspective on, having been cancelled numerous times herself. Wynn is a contrarian minus the Pepe memes and tasteless Reddit trolling; she knows her shit, and how to argue it. We needed her in 2019, and we'll keep watching into 2020. ––Kat Gillespie
