Despite a 5.30am alarm for a flight to Palm Springs Tuesday morning to see Nicolas Ghesquiere’s latest Louis Vuitton Cruise show (at the Bob and Dolores Hope Estate and inspired, in part, by The Hunger, apparently), I spent most of Monday late night engrossed in documenting and dissecting the fashion of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala. As with many things, the primary arena for this is Twitter – a pithy 140 character rant about a like or, more often, a dislike, accompanied by a picture. Then onto the next. It’s become something of a yearly tradition in the fashion fraternity.
Rihanna, who is better known for posting near-nude photographs of herself on Twitter, has dyed her hair grey. It’s a bold move for an artist who prefers to tweet #Slutz #ratedR #BornSinner, but grey may be here to stay as Kelly Osbourne, Lady Gaga, Pink and Pixie Geldoff have also experimented with the hair colour.
Does Twitter’s Vine app have what it takes to become the Instagram of video? Or is six seconds just far too short?
Anyone who’s been up with the escapades of Rihanna’s recent promo campaign would get the impression that the pop industry continues to tower financially over us all.
‘Push me and then just touch me ’till I can get my, satisfaction.’ Back in 2002, Benny Benassi rose to fame with the lyrics that now echo through clubs across the world. Over the years he’s won a Grammy Award and collaborated with the likes of Kelis, Jean Baptiste and Chris Brown but his biggest success was creating one of the initial tracks that brought ‘Electro’ to the mainstream market.
In the past six years, as well as selling 23 million of his own singles, hit maker Ne-Yo has written songs for artists including Beyonce, Celine Dion, Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey and Rihanna. With the release of his fifth album R.E.D today, Ne-Yo gives Anna Nathanson an insight into his music-making processes and mindset.
Rihanna’s protectiveness towards Chris Brown, whose fists styled her for the most disturbing celebrity headshot in recent years, places her in the company of countless beaten wives and girlfriends.
It seems the world of celebrity has experienced some strange moral epiphany all of a sudden. With the news that Kristen Stewart could lose her part in the new Snow White film because of her affair with Rupert Sanders comes a new implication about stardom: that having any kind of morality lapse could actually damage your career.
