3. Watchin' Downton. "Wait, all the chauffeurs are cute."
5. A behind the scenes look at Girls, Lena Dunham's new HBO show. "I apologize that you have genital warts."
The duo of OFWGKTA members Syd Tha Kid and Matt Martians, aka The Internet, release yet another single from their Purple Naked Ladies album. They stick with director Matt Alonzo and we're assuming that this is meant to be a prequel to their "Cocaine" clip since it ends at the same "carnival" location. Frank Ocean fans will enjoy the trip-hop vibe, but you'll have to get over the gratuitous violence and WTF plot.
Dear Mr. Mickey,
These days it's an embarrassment of riches when it comes to drunk celebrity videos so we've chosen our five faves
1. Mariah Carey: "Please forgive me because I'm a little bit...yeahh"
Kids these days! Rutgers University is currently offering a course called "Politicizing Beyoncé." Kevin Allred, a post-doc in the department of Women's and Gender studies, explains that he uses the singer's music, on-stage persona and personal life to examine race, gender and politics in Amerca. "She certainly pushes boundaries," Allred explained on the Rutgers news site.
"While other artists are simply
releasing music, she's creating a grand narrative around her life, her
career, and her persona."
We decided to help out the students enrolled in the course, and came up with some foolproof, potential final paper topics:
"Decoding the Heteronormativity of Putting a Ring on It"
"All Black Everything: Race, Ethnicity and the Child from the Child from Destiny's Child"
"The Liminal Negotiation of Dancing in High-Heels"
"Politics, Gender and the Struggle for Being Ready for This Jelly"
"Power, Identity, and Thought in 'If I Were a Boy"
"99 Problems with 99 Problems But a Bitch Ain't One."
Love these new ads from Stella McCartney shot by Mert&Marcus and featuring Natalia Vodianova looking very Charlotte Rampling/Jane Birkin-esque. Be sure to check out the accompanying video below showing Vodianova getting "flower bombed."
In addition to some truly outrageous and amazing clothing, eccentric German fashion designer Bernhard Willhem showed off his latest shoe collaboration with the folks at Camper (as part of their Toðer with Bernhard Willehlm line) over the weekend during Paris Fashion Week. The looks -- models with dip-dyed beards and paint-splattered faces, ripped up shirts and pants, lots of tigers -- were bananas both figuratively, and literally (there were actual bushels of bananas behind the models). The shoes, a combo of collage-y velcro sneakers and military boots, are available on the Camper website.
1. A sex-toy company called Fleshlight is developing an iPad case you can... enjoy privately.
2. UPDATE: Disney has stopped selling their Joy Division "inspired" T-shirt. Of course that means one is already going for $255 on eBay.
3. Uggie, the 10-year-old dog star in the Academy Award-nominated film, The Artist, is retiring.
4. Chose a reason (or make up your own): The New York Post claims Demi Moore was hospitalized because Ashton "acted like a teenage boy." While TMZ claims it was because she "inhaled too many whip-its."
5. Registration is now open for the 2012 Homo Climbtastic Convention. It's the largest LGBT climbing event in the world and takes place July 26 to 29 in Fayetteville, West Virginia. Here's all the details.
6. It's on! The search for the best street caricature artist in New York City kicks off with a call for entries by Mister ArtSee. Judges already on-board include author James Frey, artist Dana Schutz and ArtNet's Walter Robinson (Be sure to read this Observer profile on Mr. Robinson). The finals are scheduled for April, so go here to register.
7. Sheik 'N' Beik celebrates "Fong's Birthday" on Saturday, January 28th at Tammany Hall (152 Orchard Street). Dominican DJs Fong and Mr. O'Neil join Jeffrey Scott, Julio and Xander, upstairs and down.
8. A graffiti artist had some fun with the Mad Men season 5 teaser poster.
It's been pretty mild here in New York City as of late, but there was tons of chic, wintry fun to be had at the Standard ice rink last night for Veuve Clicquot's Midwinter Night's Skate Party, hosted by model Coco Rocha and featuring routines from the dazzling ice-skaters Johnny Weir and Sasha Cohen. Mia Moretti provided tunes, Mr. Standard himself Andre Balazs stopped by to check out the fun, and it looks like it was a super fun time. Check out Zac Sesbastian's shot of all the hot toddies who showed up to watch Weir and Cohen do their thang on the ice.
Check out this Dali-esque picture that combines twenty Internet memes...can you guess them all? (Click here to enlarge) But no, seriously, if you can, tell us in the comments below! We hit a wall after Nyan Cat and Honey Badger.
Too soon? Nah. We think it's pretty cute. [Via Style.com]
Founder Amaryllis Fox explains:
Mulu is a social platform for sharing the things you love while supporting your favorite cause. It's a bit like Twitter for recommendations, so you can curate your own personalized discovery stream by following the people, topics, and questions you find interesting...Every time someone snags one of your picks, a percentage of the purchase goes goes straight to your cause.
After creating an account, users can choose a cause they wish to support before posting pictures of anything they like -- movies, books, clothes, restaurants, vacation destinations -- and, using a Mulu function, link to websites that sell those items. Users can browse Mulu looking at other peoples' picks (including those from celebrities and well-known tastemakers including Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, author Jonathan Franzen, artist Eric Fischl and actresses Busy Phillips and Amber Tamblyn) as well as ask for recommendations. If someone purchases an item via Mulu, a portion of the sale goes back to the site through an affiliate program with participating stores. In turn, the original Mulu member who posted the item receives 50% of that commission for their cause. Ultimately "what's benefitting your cause is your curatorial eye," Fox explains.
Since this might seem confusing (as is often the case with an innovative start-up), here's an example of how it works: Let's say Mr. Mickey decides to create a Mulu page and chooses to support Doctors Without Borders. He then posts a few of his favorite items like sequined pants from AG Jeans. PAPER reader Betty, who's friends on Twitter with Mr. Mickey, sees the recommendation on his Mulu page and decides to buy a pair for herself. After she does, a percentage of the sale (anywhere from 3-15%) goes back to Mulu who, in turn, gives 50% of that amount to Doctors Without Borders.
Though the site debuted Monday, their "official launch" won't be until March when they unveil Mulu and the Mulu iPhone app at SXSW (which was also a launchpad for Twitter and Foursquare). That said, in the spirit of Mulu's tastemakers and early adopters, don't wait until then to share your favorite things...it'll make you feel like Oprah!
Consider today's oldie-but-goodie video an early Valentine from PAPER to you. "The Light" is actually an epic love song from the Grammy-winning hip-hop artist and actor, Common, that was meant for Erykah Badu (yes, that's her in the clip). It's from his album, Like Water For Chocolate, and was nominated for a Grammy in 2000. The chorus is a sample from a song by Bobby Caldwell called "Open You Eyes" that was released in 1980 and, if you've got a box of Kleenex handy, give it a listen here.
1. Last night's 30 Rock featured a fake trailer for a film "from the director of Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve": Martin Luther King Day. "It sounds like you... have a dream." Related: PAPERMAG's Five Suggestions for Garry Marshall's Next Movie.
2. A Unicorn in a Unitard on a Unicycle.
3. Vintage McHale! Here's a funny clip of Joel McHale with Barry-Watson-from-Seventh-Heaven hair giving Christmas gift-giving advice in the '90s. [via Videogum]
4. Eeeek: A man in Sweden withdrew a mouse from an ATM.
5. Jon Daly as "Drunk English Rollerblading Pine Tree" is really really crazy and really really amazing. "I've sipped the finest booze with Penelope Cruz, and I've been huddled in a corner with Malcolm Jamal-Warner."
Jason Wu's hotly anticipated, insanely cute line for Target doesn't hit stores until February 5th, but lucky ducks and celebrities including Chloe Moretz, Emmy Rossum, Blake Lively and French dance-pop star Yelle, who performed at the party, got a chance to get their hands on selected looks from the collection at a private launch party last night at Skylight Studio. The massive SoHo event space was transformed into a romantic Parisian street scene for the evening, with a litte cafe, an amazing fountain made entirely of flowers, and video projections of the line's feline mascot, Milu the Cat, slinking around the room. There was also a little shop, featuring models wearing the looks standing in the windows, which quickly filled up with various stylish young women going boonanas to get their mitts on the goods. (And we include ourselves in that bunch.) It was ah-mazing, and, fill disclosure, our sister company, Extra Extra, produced the event. They did such a fantastic job and we couldn't be prouder of them. Go guys!
