The 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1' Soundtrack: Track-By-Track

You've got to hand it to Lorde: She's a killer curator. (Then again, as a member of the Tumblr generation, this should come as no surprise.) When it was first revealed earlier this summer that the newly 18-year-old Pure Heroine darkling would be single-handedly assembling the entirety of the…


Kim Kardashian Got Her Butt Out For 'Paper', But It's All About The Photographer, Jean-Paul Goude

Tonight, Kim Kardashian got her butt out for Paper Magazine. That's super Kool for Kim and the rest of the Kardashian Klan, but the most interesting part about the cover photo isn't her or her oily, enhanced buttocks (to me, anyways) — it's the fact that prolific French photographer Jean-Paul Goude…


The Lorde-Curated Soundtrack for 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Looks Like Fan Fiction, But It's Real

So, okay: Lorde gets it. Over the summer, the Pure Heroine alt-pop princess was enlisted to singlehandedly curate the Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 soundtrack. A tough task for any teen! But, as it turns out, she did a fucking bang-up job. In fact, the list of performers that made the cut is…

Grace Jones Is Recording New Music, Nothing Else Matters

This is truly a "LITERALLY SHUT THE FUCK UP, SIT DOWN AND STOP YOUR ENTIRE LIFE" moment. Yesterday (19 hours ago, to be exact!), British producer Ivor Guest created a Tumblr account (#trendy) and posted two photos — one of a bunch of lyric sheets scattered around on a couch, and one of none other…


Grace Jones Brings the Hurricane Back to NYC for One-Off Show in October

Ladies and gentlemen, heeeeeere's GRACE! She's back. Three years ago, the legendary Miss Grace Jones brought down the house at the Hammerstein Ballroom on her Hurricane Tour in 2009 (which I still refer to as one of the greatest concert experiences, if not the greatest, of my entire life.) Now,…


That One Time Kylie Minogue, Cheryl Cole and Grace Jones Met The Queen At The Same Time

And now, a video that more or less captures the very essence of my being. Yesterday, dozens of performers took to the stage at Buckingham Palace for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert, where the royal family and the British people came together to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Queen of…
