Charli XCX's ‘Miss U’ Puts a Dreamy Spin on Heartbreak

Culture
Charli XCX is back again and has blessed us with another one of her new singles, "Miss U," a melancholic, addictive bop about a relationship's death rattle. "Miss U" is a rare Charli XCX ballad, with bittersweet lyrics like "some nights, I go back there/ right back where we used to love/ think I messed up somewhere/ don't know what I keep running from" spilling out over a synth-heavy beat. The somber track dives right into heartbreak, Charli lets herself reminisce about the good memories too.

Taylor Swift Shades Leonardo DiCaprio on 'The Man'

Track four of Taylor Swift's new album Lover is "The Man," a catchy feminist-ish bop that, respectfully, treads what's well-worn pop girl ground at this point. If Swift were male, her lyrics suggest, "I would be complex, I would be cool… If I was a man, I'd be the man."

After sampling over 150 million individuals in the US, researchers found an association between pollution exposure and diagnosis of bipolar disorder and depression. Scientists looked at health insurance data over a period of 11 years, comparing claims of bipolar, depression, personality disorder, schizophrenia, Parkinson’s, and epilepsy, with air, water, and land quality throughout the country.

Custody Battle Over Miley and Liam's Pets Begins

Liam and Miley are over for good, with Hemsworth having lawyered up and filed for divorce earlier this week. So now comes the hard part: who gets to keep their shared pets? Luckily, there's no contest. TMZ reports Miley will get full custody of the seven dogs, two horses, two miniature horses, three cats, and single pig that the couple cared for during their ten years together. California law actually says Hemsworth has a right to contest ownership of the animals, most of which were originally adopted by Miley, but TMZ thinks he won't. This makes sense: Miley is known as the bigger animal lover (remember the Dead Petz?), although it was Liam who famously rescued their brood from the Woolsey Fire in 2018.

With her hazy, R&B-infused music, Hong Kong-born singer-songwriter cehryl creates a zero-gravity atmosphere deliberately designed to get lost within. Her vocals are delicate but front and center, reflecting the lyric-driven artists who shaped her craft growing up: early Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, John Mayer, and James Morrison. Of course, 2000s punk icon Avril Lavigne made her mark on a young cehryl, who released her latest album Slow Motion in June. “Avril Lavigne was my first CD,” cehryl tells i-D. “She’s the reason I got into writing my own music.” Today, 23-year-old cehryl is an independent artist who writes, records, produces, mixes, and engineers everything on her own after studying at Boston’s Berklee School of Music.

Greyson Chance's 'White Roses' Is a Broken Love Story

Culture
"I am sure many will take the main character as being shameful of who he is, but that is not the case at all. The character isn't shameful, but rather he is broken," Greyson Chance says of the music video for his song "White Roses," the midpoint of his 2019 studio album, Portraits. It's an important distinction to make when discussing a video concept that revolves around a character concealing all or some parts of their sexuality — a tale that was once a reality for Chance.Directed by Bobby Hanaford and Chance himself, the music video tackles the loss and hurt involved with bursts of free expression, still limited by the confines of current relationships. Rather than have moments of abandon, like the one that occurs at the climax of the video for "White Roses," be laced with shame, Chance is painting a picture of truly intimate rupture. "Just like the world around them, each character in the video is likewise broken," Chance explains, leaving no question as to the radius of impact caused by one hiding their identity from loved ones. "I am portrayed by the boy in the trailer."...

You Have the Right to Be Safe: Tarana Burke

Culture
All Introductions by: Know Your Rights Camp members Miabelle Bocicault, Dr. Ameer Hasan Loggins, Dr. Christopher Petrella As the founder of the #MeToo movement, Tarana Burke has given a voice to the underrepresented and started a global conversation on sexual abuse, harassment and assault against women that has increased the world's awareness of these issues and justice for its victims. And, as a survivor of sexual assault, Burke has used her own experiences to address tragedies that are typically buried in shame and humiliation and created a safe haven for women all over the world to come forward and do the same. But her fight for the lives of those who have suffered sexual violence did not begin with a hashtag in 2017 nor the Me Too mantra she first coined in 2006. Her activism and advocacy are rooted in the decades she has spent fighting systemic and structural forces that have contributed to racial and gender inequality and the creation of broken communities. It is work focused on bulldozing the building blocks of sexual terrorism: power and privilege. With each speech, each tweet, each personal interaction, Tarana Burke is fighting to let them know that you have a right to be safe. ...

Taylor Swift Responds to the 'Drunk Taylor' Memes

Culture
Taylor Swift sure knows how to throw a party. Over the weekend, the star set off a new meme craze amongst fans via the hashtag #DrunkTaylor and, turns out, Swift herself is very into the trend. On Saturday, Swift threw a champagne-filled party in LA to celebrate her 10 VMA nominations. Amongst the attendees were co-stars from the music videos for "ME!" and "You Need to Calm Down" — including Laverne Cox, Hayley Kiyoko, and Chester Lockhart — and, needless to say, it looked like a blast from all the IG stories. But what really sent the internet spiraling were a few photos and videos of Swift dancing, head-banging, and lip-syncing to "You Need to Calm Down." And though we can't confirm whether or not she was actually tipsy at the event, Swifties were quick to rally on Twitter....

'Old Town Road' Street Signs Keep Getting Stolen

Culture
Lil Nas X's record-breaking hit "Old Town Road" has apparently inspired a rash of street sign thefts in the town of Wellesley, Massachusetts. That's right. According to CNN, local officials say that signs for Old Town Road have been taken "at least three times in recent months."

Breaking the Silence Around Abortion

Culture
This article is a collaboration between HBO and PAPER Magazine, bringing together premium entertainment such as the new HBO series Euphoria and Paper's 'Break the Internet' sensibility.American discourse has changed radically in the past decade around a number of social issues. The Supreme Court's landmark ruling on same-sex marriage and the mainstreamification of LGBTQ culture have led to greater awareness of individuals not confined to the gender and sexual attraction binaries. Nationwide conversations around police brutality and the institutionalized racism people face everyday are common (if not entirely effective). Mass shootings have put gun control at the top of our agendas. Thanks to many colliding forces but especially the boundary-breaking reach of the internet, we talk about things like mental health and chronic illness far more than we used to. The pain of late stage capitalism have made discussing practical matters like money more commonplace. And of course the #MeToo movement broke the dam that led to the global outpouring of stories about sexual abuse in its many forms....

Why the 'Ideal' Influencer Looks Like…That

Culture
Recently, PAPERpublished a visual composite of what the ideal influencer would look like, based on images from Instagram's top 100 influencer accounts. The image is haunting for how familiar it is: almond eyes, heart-shaped face, button nose, white. If you have ventured onto Instagram, this isn't all that surprising — this is what all the top influencers do look like. Perhaps an interesting question then is: Why? Instagram's glut of cookie-cutter influencers seems a far cry from the original promise of the Internet. In the 2000's, scholars and enthusiasts were optimistically predicting the revival of democracy and the public sphere. Entry to online stardom, or "microcelebrity," was seemingly more democratic, too. According to YouTube's original slogan (ditched in 2012), the Internet invites you to "broadcast yourself." It promised virality and legions of fans for simply being yourself. This promise was particularly salient for outsiders. Early success stories like Tay Zonday (for his song "Chocolate Rain") and British YouTuber Charlie McDonnell were known as geeky oddballs. Experts coined phrases like "participatory culture" to capture how the barriers to celebrity appeared to be rapidly disintegrating....
