conan gray is gen z's ascendant king of sad boy pop

Culture
This article originally appeared on i-D UK. “Isn’t he an angel, Dad? The most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?” On the balcony of Bowery Ballroom in New York City, a girl no older than nine is swooning over pop’s brand new heartthrob. She screams along to every one of his songs, gets jealous over the front row as they gaze into his eyes, and throws heart-shaped hand gestures up in the air in the hope that he might see them. She squeals, grabbing her mother’s side: “This is the best night of my LIFE!” The boy on stage is Conan Gray, and this is the life he leads now. Just over 18 months ago, he was a kid growing up in suburban Texas, minding his own business at school, keeping to his small friend group and getting the grades that would help him get out of his town and into a college on the west coast; a distant dream of his. But when he got home, the self-confessed “outsider” was preaching his goofy and intimate internal thoughts to a million-strong crowd of YouTube followers right out of his bedroom. ...

Unpopular Opinion: Eggs Fucking Suck

Culture
Here’s an unpopular opinion: eggs suck.Maybe this opinion is not so unpopular given the contention with which the discussion of their health benefits has been handled. I haven’t consulted a specialist on whether they’re objectively good for you because I am fairly certain the response will command a resounding, “Everything in moderation!” But we are Americans, dammit, and Americans do not wish to understand the concept of moderation, so it’s either all or nothing. Bathe in a sea of yolk, or relinquish it altogether.As far as their reputation goes: They are certainly touted as a beacon of nutritious eating among the coastal city restaurants that maintain a sheen of health courtesy of the turmeric lattes and butters made from varying seeds and nuts that garnish their menus. But I invite you to analyze this recent quote, plucked directly from The New York Times: “No matter how heart-healthy the rest of a person’s diet, the more eggs consumed, the greater the risk for cardiovascular events, coronary heart disease, stroke, heart failure and premature death.”...

But don’t worry, I’ll be back very soon.” Spears had previously canceled her Las Vegas residency to care for her ailing father. She further elaborated on why she was posting now, saying that her family and her team have been receiving death threats, and that there are fake emails floating around that were crafted by her former manager Sam Lufti years ago, though it’s unclear what those emails purportedly say. “Your love and dedication is amazing,” she wrote at the end of her post. “[B]ut what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way.

Britney Spears Breaks Silence Amidst Rumors She's Being Held Against Her Will

Over the last few weeks, concern over perpetually surveilled pop legend Britney Spears' mental health has reach feverish levels since it was reported that she was being held in a mental health facility against her will. #FreeBritney began trending as dubious conspiracy theories sparked fan fears of a repeat of 2007, the year she infamously shaved her head and was taken to UCLA Medical. Early the following year her conservatorship under her father began and has reportedly been in effect since.The 37-year-old's father, Jamie Spears, is legally in charge approving Britney's personal and financial decisions, along with her lawyer Andrew M. Wallet, co-conservator of her estate — that is, until March 4, 2019, when Wallet quit. That, along with Jamie Spears undergoing serious medical issues and a seemingly sudden silence on the part of Britney (she also put her Las Vegas residency on hold in response to her father's illness) added considerable kindling to the conspiracy bonfire.

Can You Guess Gigi Hadid’s Birthday Dress Code?

Culture
Gigi Hadid has made it to 24. In some ways it feels like America’s Sweetheart model would perpetually be 23, but as of today she has evolved to 24. To celebrate, she hosted a party at L’Avenue at Saks. Her famous family attended, including her sister Bella (also a model), as did her closest friends including Taylor Swift, Hailee Steinfeld, and Olivia Culpo. According to People, the party had a strict dress code which “all guests” abided by.

In Conversation: LANY and Julia Michaels on 'Okay'

Culture
"I don't want this to be my last time in this apartment," Julia Michaels and LANY frontman Paul Jason Klein sing eagerly in the first verse of their new song, "okay." Their voices, in carefully offset harmony, are supported by a pulsating vocal sample; acoustic drumstick hits build anticipation, and then allow it to plateau gracefully near the chorus. What starts out as a careworn tune over love lost, arranged with the same tonality of LANY's sophomore album, Malibu Nights, turns into cooled conversation, while an uncertain hope hangs over both singers."Okay" is the type of modern alt-pop groove whose success depends upon the right artistic visions to package the final product in the least trite way possible. Perhaps there are no two better actors to do so than Michaels and Klein. Both of them tour on monstrous individual schedules, delivering what feels like stadium-level energy to crowds in theaters across the United States; Michaels is even currently the opening act on P!nk's Beautiful Trauma World Tour. They've only been able to do so by cultivating unique voices in each of their respective works, voices that can easily reexamine past heartaches and evaluate current emotional tumult. ...

How Wellness Is Shaping the Biggest Spring Fashion Trend

Culture
Is it just me, or is fashion’s trend machine telling us to dress like we just got back from a hike? Ganni’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection featured anoraks and hiking boots in collaboration with technical-wear brand 66 North. Fendi and Hermes’s collections looked like a luxury manifestation of camping attire. Topshop is selling a bungee cord belt. Anna Sui and Sacai sent utility vests down the runway so capacious they could conceivably store multiple iPhones and a protein bar to boot.There are a number of factors contributing to this confluence of clothing that pairs well with carabiner clips. First and foremost, “après-hike,” if I may call it that, is a logical summertime successor to the après-ski style trend that cycled to the top of the trend machine this past winter.

kanye, ariana and bieber and a lemon: coachella weekend two

Culture
Apparently, the unofficial theme of the second weekend of this year’s Coachella was resurrection. Of course, there’s the fact that the Californian festival coincided with one of the holiest dates in the Christian calendar, but from Kanye West’s Sunday Service, held on the prophetically-entitled " The Mountain" to Ariana Grande’s resurrection of Justin Bieber, it seems that this year’s headliners took the weekend’s sentiments of revival, reverence and faith pretty close to heart. Hell, even Beyoncé, (who wasn’t even performing this year) took the opportunity to bring back her much-glorified 2018 show in the guise of a surprise album. Anyway, let’s start with Sunday Service. A few notes for those of little faith: initiated as a church-like gathering at Kim and Kanye’s Calabasas crib, the weekly communions have quickly gained traction thanks to Kim’s frequent broadcasts to her millions of Instagram followers. Featuring a gospel choir and exclusive performances from ‘Ye’s covetable A-list of friends, these non-religious celebrations of faith, have since expanded to invite-only events at undisclosed locations, reportedly attended by guests including Katy Perry, Courtney Love and Orlando Bloom. ...

I like knowing what I’m doing, who I’m doing it with, and what kind of “vibe” it will entail — long before it all takes place. Early in our relationship, my long-distance boyfriend didn’t know this about me, which led to one of our biggest fights to date.One weekend, he was in town and we were visiting mutual friends. We were all having such a good time that afternoon that he thought it would be fun to spontaneously change our private date night at a fancy restaurant to a double-date night-in with two of our friends — friends whom I love and adore, but whom I did not plan to spend additional time with that evening. He did this without consulting me, and before I could say a word, my friend Amber was already deciding how to cook the lamb that night....

In Venezuela, Women Are Selling Their Hair to Survive

Amidst the sharp economic slowdown sweeping the Venezuelan economy, women living in the country are now resorting to selling their hair in order to make enough money to survive. An Associated Press report sheds light to a number of young girls living in poor neighborhoods of Venezuela, who are chopping off and selling their hair to be used in hair and extensions for as little as $100. With average monthly incomes down to often $3, girls then use the money for expenses including food, medicine, and phone bills. Although in most circumstances, the decision stems out of need over comfort, there are many women who find it easier to maintain shorter hair in a time when they often have to wash their hair with dish liquid. Frequent water and electricity shortages have only made the situation more dire. "There are times when you go two or three weeks without washing your hair," one woman told AP....

But because Beyoncé is a generous and benevolent god, there actually is something new. The new streaming editions of the album include loopy dream-pop "Original Demo" version of "Hold Up." We get to hear Bey's vocals up close, backed by aquatic synths and slow, trembling percussion. The originally spitting "Sometimes I regret the day I put this ring on..." is now gentle spoken-word litany. The alt-pop sound makes sense: Ezra Koenig and Father John Misty have writing credits on the song, after all. ...

Chicago-based DJ, producer, and electronic musician Ariel Zetina wants to move you. Not necessarily out of yourself — in an increasingly digital world, unnecessary distractions are all too common — but into the deepest parts of your body, mind, and spirit. Her music asks us to draw closer to what matters most, through washes of ambient sound, an allegiance to upbeat Chicago house, her native Belizean genres punta and brukdow, and intricate vocal samples culled from worldwide queer club scenes. These influences collided in her debut EP, 2017's Cyst,and demand that you, literally (and metaphorically) "Establish Yourself In My Body."Related | Mister Wallace Is the Cool Mom You Never HadThat track comes from Zetina's latest collection, Organism, which arrived last week on Majia.

Office Apropos: 25 Spring Outfits We Wore Last Week

Spring has sprung like a coiled-up Slinky that Jack Frost — or some other nemesis of the winter variety — was sitting on for the last 4-5 months. Needless to say, the victory is sweet, and the corresponding outfits are even sweeter. It’s not that it’s necessarily easier to get dressed, because in many cases of transitional temperatures the quandary over whether to wear a jacket can escalate to mind-numbing proportions (choosing wrong is not only likely but inevitable at some point), but more so that a mental weight has been lifted that makes picking outfits feel…lighter. Freeing. Unencumbered by the heft of purely utilitarian pursuits.It is for precisely this reason, I believe, that this debut of Spring 2019 Office Apropos is chock-full of so much variety. That’s why jean shorts make an appearance on the same day as a floral trench coat. Ditto for a sleeveless dress and combat boots.

But the positive reaction was overwhelming.

Is This the Millennial Parent Book?

Culture
One of the most consistent pieces of advice I’ve gotten while pregnant (I’m writing this now three weeks from my due date, hello) was to read Emily Oster’s 2013 book, Expecting Better. In it, Oster applies her training as a health economist to the science of pregnancy and childbirth, juxtaposing conventional medical advice with interpretation. Not all of Oster’s conclusions align with standard medical advice — her conclusion that light drinking is safe is notably controversial — but all come from analysis of the available data.In her new book, Cribsheet, Oster brings her hybrid methodology to bear on early parenthood, from the first moments after delivery to preschool, helping readers think through decisions including breastfeeding, sleep, screentime, and potty-training. There are fewer firm answers in Cribsheet than in Expecting Better, but what’s consistent is Oster’s style, built on the idea of a cost-benefit assessment of choices in which there’s no right answer for everyone. I spoke to her about how parenting has changed for millennials, how her personal life influences her writing, and how to make good decisions without copious data.

Reading it is still, to my mind, the best way to understand the mentality of anti-vaxxers. And yet over the course of a couple recent conversations with her, I noticed something that surprised me: She never used the term “anti-vaxxer,” not even once. It’s a conscious choice, she told me.“I think it’s misleading,” she said. For one, it’s not an accurate representation of the problem: The number of people who don’t vaccinate at all is smaller than the number of people who undervaccinate or who don’t vaccinate on schedule. For another, she said, “it suggests the presence of a homogenous group of people who are all of the same opinion, and that’s just not the case.” There is no one reason people decide not to vaccinate, Biss said, which suggests that “there is no quintessential anti-vaxxer” or organized anti-vaccination movement....

Hayley Kiyoko Knows What She Needs

The story of 27-year-old pop star Hayley Kiyoko as "Lesbian Jesus" is tempting to focus on. Today's press has naturally had a field day with the nickname, but Kiyoko never initially called herself that, nor does she claim to be a god. For the mega-talented Kiyoko, such a title was born from Millennial stan culture — that marker of fan-led feverish devotion to pop music and social icons of choice. It's a ritual in which musicians are crowned omnipotent deities, destined to reign over the adoring masses, one ubiquitous Top 40 hit at a time.For her part, Kiyoko is flattered by the compliments. And they're not without merit: Kiyoko is currently headlining a national tour with Gavin Turek, in support of her major label debut Expectations, and will be opening as a special guest on Panic! at the Disco's arena tour. She's selling out venues in major cities, and experiencing wild levels of fame, complete with a hugely interactive online fan base of millions of followers and a bevy of self-directed music videos totaling nearly half a billion views and counting.

Valentino’s Latest Capsule Is Inspired by Tokyo

Last fall, Valentino brought its pre-fall collection to Tokyo. The co-ed collection was a graceful melding of deeply rooted traditions with a nod to Japan’s forward-thinking modernity. Featuring romantic red dresses and suits coupled with graphic black-and-white accents, it touched on the show’s choice of location without being overtly referential. And now, Japan’s culture has inspired creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli once again.The Italian brand released a capsule in collaboration with Japanese photographer Izumi Miyazaki called Valentino TKY. The collection offers a playful selection of T-shirts and tote bags featuring Miyazaki’s photos with cheeky sayings like “You never know unless you try” on them. The idea is conversation between Piccioli’s love for the Italian Renaissance and contemporary Japan. But for Asian-Americans, like me, this capsule feels both spirited and empowering (see the print of Miyazaki’s self-portrait holding a Valentino-printed fan with the words “Attractive feature” underneath)....

Dumblonde, the duo comprised of Aubrey O'Day and Shannon Bex, formed in 2014 following their then-final third album as Diddy's made-for-TV girl group, Danity Kane. O'Day and member Dawn Richard, who also has a critically acclaimed solo career, got into a heated physical altercation during recording sessions for that album, something they've both addressed online and in interviews. The fight led to a very public, very messy disbanding of the trio.The formation of Dumblonde's music and image came rather quickly following. After teasing images of the two blondes looking practically identical with clips of the music they were preparing, the group's self-titled album arrived in September 2015. The casual brilliance of that album's 11 tracks merged the Top 40 dance-pop sound that made Bex and O'Day famous with '80s-indebted electronica, intricate harmonies, and left-of-center production. The duo shared writing duties with hitmaker Candice Pillay and production with R8DIO and Dem Jointz.

Elizabeth Warren Proposes Plan to Cancel Student Loan Debt for Millions

Culture
Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts has proposed a plan to tackle one of the most pressing issues facing young Americans: crushing student loan debt. The higher education plan is the latest policy she's unveiled throughout her presidential run, and it's ambitious: $1.25 trillion to change higher education by canceling most student debt and eliminating tuition at every public college in the country. The plan would be paid for with revenue generated by another proposed idea: an increase in taxes on the wealthiest families and corporations in America. Her campaign estimates this tax would create $2.75 trillion in revenue over 10 years that could be used to eliminate up to $50,000 in student loan debt for every person with a household income of less than $100,000 (most student loan debt is held by the federal government). Those who make up to $250,000 would have a portion of their debt forgiven. Were this plan to go into place, Warren's campaign estimates it would affect more than 42 million Americans and eliminate all student loan debt for more than 75 percent of loan borrowers. ...

Usually, it starts with a generic work complaint (think: “I have so much to do lol”) and grows gradually more pointed until both parties realize they are ready and willing to get into it. Then there is the relief and the self-conscious laughter (i.e., “omg I was tiptoeing around that”), and then, finally, the volcanic stream of gossip and complaints.

This oftentimes left writers equally annoyed with him and the round about way he had of never quite getting to the point — or, I should say, of never quite getting to their point.

Brienne of Tarth is one of the only characters in Game of Thrones that I can say with full confidence is definitely good. (Spoilers ahead — you’ve been warned.) She’s been nothing if not loyal to those she pledges to protect — sometimes to her own detriment — and she’s led a life that is unexpectedly chivalrous on a show filled with murder, dragons, rape, incest, an army full of dead people, and generally bad behavior.That’s why it was so powerful and wholesome to see Brienne get what she so rightfully deserved on Sunday night’s (otherwise extremely horny) episode: her knighthood.Brienne — played by the exquisite Gwendoline Christie, who showed up to the show’s season-eight premiere dressed like fire — was born into a noble house, but chose to forgo marriage, children, and other things expected of a woman in her position, to chase her dream of becoming a knight.

The Indefinable Style of New York Bartenders

For those who have never worked as a bartender, the job tends to conjure an image somewhere between the bar-top dancing of Coyote Ugly and the friendly faces of Cheers. Far from the reality of a neighborhood bar, women bartenders in movies and TV are often sorted into two categories: sexed up goddess in leather pants or gruff, apron-clad matron.But standing on one’s feet for 10 hours at a time — often covered in beer and booze — is not always conducive to leather pants, much less silk fabrics or heels. Not all bartenders wear head-to-toe black, but some do, and they put a steampunk, or glam rock, or sixties spin on it. Real bartenders each have their own look, and the way they dress stands at the crux of style and utility. Perhaps nowhere is that truer than in New York City, where personal style is its own form of social cachet—and where a bar can be found on seemingly every street corner of the five boroughs....

keala naihe wants to preserve the oceans for future generations

Culture
Riding waves since the age of three, Kealamakia “Keala” Naihe has developed a deep and long-standing relationship with the water. “Almost as far back as I can remember, I’ve always been surfing, I’ve always been in the ocean,” shares Keala, a pro surfer, model, and multidisciplinary artist from Hawaii now living in LA. Coming from a deeply rooted surfing lineage, his name is historically rich in Hawaiian culture – he is a descendent of Chief Naihe on Kona (the Big Island) who during the time of Hawaii’s first kingdom was an orator and also a surf champion. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Keala was raised with a profound appreciation and respect for nature and our oceans. From the North Shore to the Gold Coast, Keala has won numerous titles. He surfed on the National Hawaiian Junior Surf team until he broke his leg during a competition at age 19. This resulted in time out of the water, so he turned to different outlets of expression including painting and modeling (Dior Homme, Sperry, and RCVA). His expressive and ambitious spirit, along with a deep respect for nature and our oceans, has led Keala to utilize his impact within the surf community to advocate for clean water through his work with Surfrider and Lonely Whale. i-D recently spoke with Keala about growing up in Hawaii, the importance of keeping our oceans clean, and what he’s doing for Earth Day....
