Jonathan Van Ness Reveals HIV Positive Status

this book confronts the harmful myth of modern masculinity

Culture
What is masculinity? Dominating the world around us, from Trump's twitter outbursts to deadly gun violence, from male suicide rates to incels on Reddit and 4chan, masculinity is perceived to be 'toxic', 'fragile' and 'in crisis'. In a new book, writer JJ Bola exposes masculinity as a performance that men are socially conditioned into. Using examples of non-Western cultural traditions, music and sport, Mask Off shines light on historical narratives around manhood, debunking popular myths along the way. He explores how LGBTQ men, men of colour, and male refugees experience masculinity in diverse ways, revealing its fluidity, how it's strengthened and weakened by different political contexts, such as the patriarchy or the far-right, and perceived differently by those around them. At the heart of love and sex, the political stage, competitive sports, gang culture, and mental health issues, lies masculinity: Mask Off is an urgent call to unravel masculinity and redefine it.

Angel Olsen Tells the Stories Behind Her Stunning Music Videos

Culture
It was early 2016, and Angel Olsen needed a reinvention. Two dizzying years had elapsed since the singer's breakthrough record, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, yet the world seemed to have the wrong idea. "I was frustrated by being pigeonholed as, like, sad-girl guitarist," Olsen says. "Singer-songwriter, Leonard Cohen-esque. I was like, 'Wow, people really view me as a country musician? I thought I was making rock and roll! I thought I was just making music. I didn't know I was this thing."Olsen had to deconstruct that notion. So she grabbed a silvery wig that made her look like an ageless glam queen and called on an old friend, the cinematographer Ashley Connor. Together, they went to a roller skating rink in Olsen's adopted hometown of Asheville, North Carolina, to make a music video.

daniel lee presents part two of his bottega veneta revolution

Culture
It is a rare moment that a fashion show captures the zeitgeist and really resonates on a wider level, actually shifting the conversation about how we dress and what we want to buy. Bottega Veneta’s show was just that — it was a fashion moment, an agenda-setting event. It was the sophomore show of York-born Daniel Lee, who laid out his blueprint for our wardrobes with a confident, direct collection that was all about clothes (and the bags and the shoes. “It was about solidifying the things that we’ve become known for — and the reality of dressing; clothes to live in,” he explained after the show. “I want it to be quite bold — otherwise what’s the point,” he added. “If you love it or hate it, at least you feel something. I don’t see the point of making fashion that doesn’t say something?” So what does his collection say exactly? Well, you can probably see yourself in these clothes. It wasn’t overwrought or overcomplicated, it was just really desirable with interesting. The menswear was more developed and wearable this time round — the key look was a slinky sweater, boxy blazer, leather Bermuda shorts and loafers worn with pulled-up socks. The womenswear seemed to be lighter, too, centred on sinuous knits, twisted and turned around the body — some with carseat-cover beading, others with asymmetric necklines.

fendi puts the camp in camping

Culture
In an unlikely twist of events in Milan, Barbara Windsor was the muse for Fendi’sSS20 show. No, not her turn as Peggy Mitchell off Eastenders. It was the dame’s scantily-clad character in Carry On Camping that caught the eye of Silvia Venturini Fendi, who referenced the 1969 British film, as well as Bette Davis in The Anniversary, in which the eye-patched actress plays a vicious yet utterly elegant bourgeois mother who torments her adult sons.So Mrs Fendi’s show — the first she had designed independently since the passing of Karl Lagerfeld — was full of delicious contradictions that nodded to the polar-opposite attitudes of cheeky youthful Babs and mean-chic grand dame Bette. There were rainproof coats and luscious suedes; bikinis and suede coats; classic neutrals and vivid colours; flower-power prints and the muted domestic ginghams they rebelled against. There was a sense of humour here, a confident lightness that she seems to be relishing given her newfound independence.

"By then there were a lot of Western influences in the way people dressed in Asia. Growing up we'd see our parents go to work and tweak the Western-style codes in their own way. And just looking at our moms and the way they dressed — the big suits, the shoulder pads, the pants — but adding their own personal flares to the way they styled the clothes, that's what kind of connected us."

The show notes (written by Michele's partner Giovanni Attili, an urban planning professor) quoted Michel Foucault and questioned the purpose of the fashion industry itself."Can [fashion] offer itself as an instrument of resistance?" Attili wrote. "Can it suggest experimental freedom, ability to transgress and disobey, emancipation and self-determination? Or [is] fashion itself [at risk] to become a refined device of neo-liberal government that ends up imposing a new normativity, turning freedom into a commodity and emancipation into a broken promise?"

Mantis Hands Makes Music Meant for Cruising

Culture
New York City-based, Jersey-raised producer Mantis Hands, born Kevin Li, grew up listening to The Beatles, Michael Jackson, and the Bee Gees because of his dad. "I had a pretty colorful childhood," he told PAPER Magazine. He later transitioned and developed a liking for Guns n' Roses, to Guang Liang's Tong Hua, and 50 Cent, and also picked up playing the drums. And listening to such a wide selection, as well as being so in-tune with making beats, definitely influenced his genre-defying sound today — which is heard at the artist's live gigs at different hot spots in the city. Now, the artist premieres his second album Our with PAPER.Our is a series of twelve tracks, combining pop, ambient synths, romantic techno, and melancholic undertones. The albumis narrative, modeled after a film soundtrack, telling stories about love lost and heartbreak, the healing experience of love, and human growth. And though Mantis Hands doesn't lend his voice to his songs, he's collaborated with singer/ songwriter Takkin, and uses samples and voice snippets from the "Sweeties" family, a collective of artists, DJs, and designers based in Brooklyn.

jennifer lopez walks for versace

Culture
On the cusp of a new millennium — twenty years ago to be precise — Jennifer Lopez wore a navel-plunging tropical-print gown from Versace’s SS00 collection at the Grammy’s and broke the baby internet. “At the time, it was the most popular search query we had ever seen,” wrote then-executive chairman of Google Eric Schmidt in 2015. “But we had no surefire way of getting users exactly what they wanted: JLo wearing that dress.” The result was the invention of Google Image Search. It was created because of that very fashion moment. Two decades later, it broke the internet again. Jennifer Lopez closed the Versace show last night in that very dress (remarkably it still fits at 50) and, as if it were an oracular symbol of the culture that would come — of fashion becoming entertainment, of the red-carpet becoming a catwalk — the phone-wielding audience projected it onto timelines and digital platforms everywhere, the image going viral once again. This time, it was in seconds. The pace of communication may have supersonically sped up, but the sentiment remained the same.

He literally bowed down when the pair met at the Billboard Music Awards, fanboyed with his dad, and told her, "I'm like a year away from a Céline tat," while patting his [email protected] on Instagram: “My dad might have walked away from this pic and said "Da Celine Way"”At the time, Celine just mumbled, "Oh, I don't know!" and quickly turned to introduce her son to Drake. Now, in an interview with iHeartRadio, she's had the chance to firmly and decisively ask Drake not to do it: "Please Drake, I love you very much. Can I tell you something? Don't do that."It's not because she dislikes Drake: "You can write me love letters, you can send me autographs for my kids, you can come and visit, I can have you home fro lunch or dinner we can go for a drink, we can sing together. Whatever you wanna do! I can talk to your mother? Whatever you want."

What's the Most Important Thing We Need to Know About Butts?

Culture
We can all agree we live in a generation that is obsessed with butts. Pop culture has conditioned us to celebrate the behind with reality TV icons like the Kardashians and even earlier movements like Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" (famously remixed by Nicki Minaj). With butts holding so much currency in our society, why is there so little information available about how to build and maintain a top-shelf booty? Why are we still so afraid of something that is so outwardly enjoyed? It doesn't make sense that people could be so obsessed with butts and still so weird about its functions. What better way to squash a stigma than with education?Related | Cheers to Exposed Butts at Fashion WeekOn August 21, I attended an event call BUTT-CON, an interactive convention for the "like-behinded" that aimed to educate, celebrate and gyrate everyone's greatest ass-et. Presented by TUSHY, a bidet company that is continuously growing in popularity, the inaugural butt-stuff convention shined a light on "hole" body health. "Butts are simultaneously one of the most coveted sexual objects and our tool for dispensing the most socially-disgusting, but necessary, bodily function. Yet talking about the rear is still taboo," said Miki Agrawal, founder of TUSHY (and former CEO of Thinx). "When we consider the health issues, sky-high bathroom bills and environmental impact associated with the way we clean ourselves down there, it's clear that we need to revolutionize the way we talk about butt health."

But this season, the biggest surprise no doubt comes in the form a brand new Instagram account dubbed @fashionweekfrog. Their first post was uploaded on September 2, right before the start of NYFW, but it's already amassed a cult following for its candid, too-real, and hilarious memes that fashion insiders and fashion adjacent people can relate to.

ambar lucid is fulfilling her pop star destiny

Culture
Ambar Lucid’s Instagram bio is a quote from The Alchemist that reads, “to realize one’s destiny is a person’s only obligation.” In person, the 18-year-old singer-songwriter’s reserved allure (she’s working on overcoming her shyness) pleasantly offsets the spiritual platitude. “I've always known that music was the number one thing that I wanted to do,” she says simply when probed about her decision to pursue a career in music, and fulfill her own destiny, before she’d even finished high school. At home in Little Ferry, New Jersey, Ambar spent a lot of time alone, studying everything she could about music on YouTube and teaching herself to play the guitar while she fulfilled older sister babysitting duties. She learned to play the drums in band class and bonded with other music students who supported her onstage at local shows. In March, while still in high school, Ambar released a sonically rich debut. On Dreaming Lucid, smoky, soulful, heart-wrenching vocals effortlessly oscillate between English and Spanish, signaling her Dominican-Mexican heritage. Her unembellished, moody production situates her amongst a generation of bedroom pop auteurs like Clairo and Jay Som, or Cuco and Omar Apollo, both of whom she’s opened for on tour.

Fast, frenetic, and densely packed with a whole universe's worth of sounds, their collaborative album, XYZ, defies conventional description. It's a bowl of Lucky Charms with Monster Energy poured in rather than milk. It's the shattered shards of a crystal palace raining down through a forest of neon trees. It's a river of lava flowing through the city in Tron: Legacy. It's a hologram floating above a bubbling witch's brew.

Madonna X-periments With 'The Madame X Tour'

Culture
As the 11th tour in her over three decade-long reign as the Queen of Pop, Madame X is entirely unlike any other Madonna tour to date. For one thing, the show is designed for the theater, as opposed to her usual sold-out baseball stadium fare. (The first venue on the trek, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, seats fewer than 3,000.)Given the close quarters, there's no catwalk to consider, nor do fans needs to panic about which side is "better." It's all relatively close ("intimate," as she purred to the crowd), and all front and center. Seeing Madonna in that environment, her first time on a theater stage since her Speed the Plow stint on Broadway in the late '80s, is objectively a special experience.

FaceTiming About Poetry With Bella Thorne

It's nearly midday, but Bella Thorne is still in bed when her assistant hands her the phone. For the first few minutes of our hour-long Facetime session she remains between the sheets, hair mussed and face make-up free. The candidness is an extension of her Instagram persona, which is composed of teary selfies and run-on captions spread over two different accounts, a tell-all style of social media influencing so prevalent now that you can't not call it calculated. By the time she sits up and starts rolling a blunt on camera I know I'm being played, but that's cool. Not many celebrities care enough about magazine interviews to feign apathy so convincingly. Thorne is a hard worker. She's not so much famous for being famous as famous for juggling multiple nebulous projects at any given time: acting, rapping, porn directing. Right now she's an author, and her unkempt appearance matches the frankly deranged aesthetic of the book she's currently promoting, The Life of a Wannabe Mogul Volume One: A Book Written By Bella Thorne. Sounds like self help or memoir, but it's more of a hardcover poetry zine. She wrote it in two weeks on a borrowed typewriter, and there are two planned sequels.

We Did Wrong By Megan Fox

Remember when we decided to dismiss Megan Fox outright, meanwhile elevating her Transformers co-star Shia LeBeouf to the status of enigmatic and talented boy-about-Hollywood? After she committed the terrible sin of (checks notes)... being incredibly hot? The late 2000s were a truly dark time for women in cinema, especially those who were marketed as sex symbols. A career re-evaluation of Fox is definitely in order, especially when it comes to her critically panned cult favorite performance in Jennifer's Body. According to a new interview, she'd tend to agree.Entertainment Tonight interviewed Fox alongside Jennifer's Body writer Diablo Cody to celebrate the movie's tenth anniversary, and Fox went into detail about what sounds like an intensely difficult period. Fox says she experienced a "genuine psychological breakdown" as a result of being consistently objectified and sexualized in her movie roles, and particularly in the ill-conceived Jennifer's Body marketing campaign. She found herself retreating as a result.

His interest in the American Heartland and the subsequent photographic project it birthed didn’t begin until after he left graduate school in his twenties. “I was living in San Francisco, and in something of a funk -- barely employed and barely making work,” he says. “I applied for a handful of artist residencies, to get out and be somewhere new. One of them came through -- the Bemis Center -- which is in Omaha.” Offered a place to live and a small stipend for four months, Gregory left for a city he knew nothing about, and where he knew nobody. “It took me out of my routine, put me in a new environment where I had nothing much else to do other than photograph. It was like a new lease on life, and I just fell in love with being there... I photographed constantly.”

jil sander embraces minimalist maximalism

Culture
If there was ever a case for less being more, for quality over quantity and for forever-clothes over throwaway fashion, Jil Sander could be considered a pioneer. Minimalism, purity and the concept that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line are all central tenets of the brand. For designers Luke and Lucie Meier, who are now in their third year at the house, there needs to be emotion and warmth, too, which they introduced through several touches of craftiness and a meditation on the “harmony of opposites” in their show at the Accademia di Brera, Milan’s most famous art school.The opposite of minimalism is maximalism, of course, which the Meiers also explored. They landed on ‘60s psychedelia and the late 19th century art movement Vienna Secession as launching pads for colourful marbled prints — also bringing to mind the luscious detail of Florentine paper and San Francisco counterculture (the show opened to Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit”). SS20 also showed trailing raffia embroidery, beaded swallows, prints of nudes and panels of intricate paper guipure lace. That may sound like a lot, but the detail came in elegant small doses as accents on pared-back tailoring, clean shirting and silk dresses.

17 things you need to know about mullets

Culture
From the early 70s, the mullet has been (to say the least) a highly controversial hairdo. It either provokes ridicule, or is deemed the pinnacle of cool, depending on your perspective. Short at the front, long at the back, it’s a gender fluid look that’s been rocked by David Bowie, Cher, numerous professional football players, DJs, TV presenters, actors, models, and, probably, your mum or dad at some point.The mullet commands attention, demands commitment and has dramatically flitted in and out of fashion across the decades. And now it seems, we're in the midst of a mullet resurgence. So here's everything you need to know about the dark times ahead.1. There are various historical theories about the origins of the mullet. Some experts claim there’s proof that young Roman men, way back in the 6th Century, grew their hair long all over except for at the front, which was deliberately trimmed short, because they thought it made them look well ‘ard! However, Alan Henderson, who wrote the 2007 book, Mullet Madness!: The Haircut That's Business Up Front and a Party in the Back, reckons ancient civilisations in Syria and Mesopotamia adopted early incarnations of the distinctive hairdo purely for practical reasons -- to keep their necks warm in chilly weather and their eyes free from the obstruction of a fringe.

Blink-182's Tom DeLonge On UFOs, Government Coverups and Why Aliens are Bigger than Jesus

Culture
Tom DeLonge introduced himself to the world by streaking his way through Blink-182's video for "What's My Age Again?" and has since leveraged the multiplatinum success of the pop-punk group to become a clothing magnate (with his companies Macbeth Footwear and Atticus), social media entrepreneur (his network Modlife has been used by Pearl Jam and Kanye West) and children's author (2013's The Lonely Astronaut on Christmas Eve). But before any of that happened, he was a dedicated believer in the idea that life exists on other planets, and that the world's various governments have worked in secret to keep this information from the general populace. He's become a self-styled academic on the subject and launched a website, Strange Times, dedicated to exposing the truth of what he calls "the phenomenon." He's spent more than two decades getting laughed at for his theories, but with both NASA and the Vatican allowing that humanity might soon find evidence of extraterrestrial life, DeLonge is feeling mighty vindicated these days. A few weeks before he publicly clashed with the other members of Blink-182 about his commitment to the band, we called him at his office. We heard about mind control, a camping trip to Area 51 and how to look beyond popular conspiracy theories to the "third story."

Because she embodies today’s liberated, no-compromise, write-your-own-rules YSL woman. Because her fierce brand of freedom and sensuality expresses the fiery legacy of Yves Saint Laurent.”Dua revealed also revealed on Instagram that she had a small role in choosing the final scent. The result is LIBRE. Grown in France and Morocco, the fragrance has notes of orange blossom and lavender, and toes the line between feminine and masculine, according to the brand. Hence the orange blossom and lavender arrangements all over the launch party at London’s Somerset House last night.

5 Things We Learned From Taylor Swift's 'Rolling Stone' Profile

Culture
In Taylor Swift's new Rolling Stoneinterview, she not only discusses her new album Lover but also her tumultuous headlines from the past three years. From the infamous Kanye West phone call to her highly public dispute with her former label's boss Scott Borchetta, and to her oft-criticized apolitical past, she's suddenly willing to go on the record about a bunch of stuff that's puzzled fans for years. Rolling Stone on Instagram: “Taylor Swift returns to Rolling Stone's cover in our new issue, giving one of the most revealing interviews of her career. Click the link…”With Swift addressing the many negative and very public headlines in her career, she's clearly reckoning with her public and private selves, and how they might conflict. On one hand she doesn't like the public perception that she just writes songs about her exes, but on the other she leans into that perception for marketing purposes, as astutely pointed out by the interviewer. So who is she really?

Chester Lockhart Goes Hard for 'The Night' Premiere

Culture
It was almost as if Chester Lockhart couldn't get any fiercer, having recently appeared in Taylor Swift's "Calm Down" music video and landed a role in the CW's Glamorous. With an array of bops like "In Loving Memory" and "Spell On You" already in Lockhart's discography, here comes "The Night" to smash everything you know about the performer to smithereens. Lockhart's newest track is a melodic curse, pulsing with a bass line that only erupts more when tested with the intense instrumental backing its chorus. Lockhart is in total control of the camera and the audience, staring down the lens in each shot in the music video — face painted for the gods, please note — and echoing an anthemic chorus: "I'm taking back the night!"

Chika Oranika’s voice echoes around the sun filled space of Mario Sorrenti’s Brooklyn studio. She’s busy doing her own make-up, mahogany coloured powder melting into her skin, getting ready to be shot. Chika has a fierce tenacity for how she’s represented and a radical and intelligent critique of culture. Right now Chika is in the midst of an unstoppable rise.

we've launched our own chat show! here's how you can watch it 👀

Culture
Let's face it, regular chat shows are dry. From their obsession around creating viral content and memeable moments, to the guests who are there only to sell you something, the format doesn’t usually allow for important or vital conversations. We thought it was time for that to change. Recruiting the talents of model, activist and i-D contributing editor Paloma Elsesser, may we introduce The Squeeze, our new chat show on Instagram. The Squeeze aims to re-write the rules and recalibrate the conversation away from the mundane and into something meaningful, funny and, tbh, watchable as hell. For the first episode, which you can watch right now (!!!), Paloma met up with 22-year-old Alabamian rapper Chika, one of the most honest voices of this generation.

balenciaga’s new mannequins are terrifyingly realistic

Culture
Photo via TwitterBad mannequins with human features -- you know the vibe, beady eyes and dodgy wigs -- are the stuff of nightmares. Mainstays of department stores of the past, they’ve since been relegated to stockrooms and skips in de-limbed form as the high street dies with them. In its place, sleeker statuettes have come forth: chic, often headless bodies that show how the clothes look on without staring into your soul, your darkest, most deeply buried memories rising to the surface and flashing before your eyes.If there’s anything Demna Gvasalia has liked to play with since arriving at Balenciaga, it’s those cultural touchstones of our past that just distant enough for us to start to forget them: the Matrix aesthetic and deliciously tacky tourist garb of our 90s childhood holidays are just two of the many things he’s made cool again. It’s no surprise department store mannequins have been given a clever re-up in his hands too.

brooke davis from 'one tree hill' was one of the best characters on tv

Culture
“What’s underneath the clothes Brooke Davis?” was the cheeky, yet adorable question lobbied by six-year-old Jamie Scott to his godmother Brooke Davis on the hit CW show, One Tree Hill. It’s a memorable scene that reflected the complexities beneath the polished surface of Brooke's character, played by the inimitable Sophia Bush.Brooke Davis was a one-of-a-kind character from the early-aughts who weathered family heartbreak, relationship let-downs, and friendship betrayals with a finesse that was not only aspirational, but so unlike the teen characters at the time. When One Tree Hill premiered in 2003, the television was teeming with shows highlighting angsty, impatient, 15 going on 25 teenagers. Dawson’s Creek, The O.C., and Gilmore Girls are a handful of beloved standouts from the era. Each had an obvious lack of diversity in both racial and sexual identities, but the stories of small town white teens just trying to figure it out defined the times.

christopher kane's ode to ecosexuals

Christopher Kane continued his exploration of sexual fetishes with SS20, billed as an ode to ‘ecosexuals’ — people, who in the designer’s words, “love the planet, who love to make love to the planet, who are naturists, who don’t need clothes, who just want flowers, beauty, nature and wind and magic and spirituality.” You can take from that what you will — the Scottish designer insisted it was not a political statement about the climate crisis — but at a time that Amazon rainforest is burning and environmental activism has ushered in change at even the biggest luxury houses, it’s a prescient notion. We all love the planet and want it to survive — some of us, it seems, really really love it.

Nick Carter Files Restraining Order Against Aaron Carter

Culture
Backstreet Boy Nick Carter has been granted a restraining order against ex-heartthrob and solo star Aaron Carter, reports BBC. Nick — the elder Carter, now 39, alleges that his little brother, 31, has threatened him and his wife Lauren Kitt, who's pregnant. Yikes! What? If like me, the last time you thought about the Carters was when Aaron visited your college town to play a dive bar gig and make out with sorority girls, the fact the brothers are on this bad of terms is news. According to TMZ, the restraining order requires that Aaron stay at least 100 feet away from Nick and "other family members, specifically their residence in Las Vegas." In turn, Aaron's denied his brother's claims that he threatened Nick and in turn, accused Nick of bullying and abusing him as a child, as well as doubling down on his belief that Nick is guilty of rape.
