Before Nicki, Lil Kim was controversial (and don't even get Kim started on Nicki). She was on the cover of PAPER back in 1996 and, trust me, we got reactions. She wasn't afraid to tell it like it is. Doubters (and candy lovers) need to watch today's oldie-but-goodie video for "How Many Licks?" The song came out in the summer of 2000 and by Christmas, the dolls featured in this video were sold-out across the country. (Just kidding, but they would have been a great promo item: "Collect all three. Taste the difference.")
Porcelain Black shares "DNA" with Rye Rye, has been on dinner dates with Tom Cruise and hits strip clubs with Lil' Wayne. She sounds like a fun girl! The L.A.-based, Detroit-born pop-rock phenom has been charging full steam ahead with guidance from super-producer RedOne, who not only helped craft her debut album Mannequin Factory (out early Fall) but landed her a cameo as a hair-rocker in this summer's much-anticipated Broadway-to-big-screen-film Rock of Ages, which she shot last summer in Miami. Director Adam Shankman was so impressed with the young singer's energy and performance, he asked her to sing "Rock Angel," one of the film's two original songs. After stripping down and posing with a bevy of scantily-clad hunks, Black chatted with us:
What was the Rock of Ages set like?
Definitely surreal. I mean Katie Holmes was chasing after little Suri who was all over the set, Mary J. Blige is in some crazy-ass wig over in the corner and Tom Cruise's nephew is wailing on a guitar. Not to mention all the punk rock zombie kids. I've never see so much eyeliner.Did you get star struck on set?
Hell no! But, my trailer was next to Russell [Brand]'s and we partied together once a while back, and I wanted to see him again. So I did what any lady would do. I sat with a bottle of whiskey and chain smoked on his steps until he appeared.
Besides Tom Cruise, who would be some dudes you'd like to du-et with? Pun intended.
Easy: Trent Reznor, Eminem and -- what the hell -- Jane's Addiction!
You shot the film in Miami. Do you have a favorite restaurant there?
Yeah, it's called Gloria Estefan's house, bitches! Tom, Russell and I were shuttled over
to Gloria's house for a private dinner, where we met up with some other
co-stars. It was this crazy
beachfront mansion with lots of jet skis.
You recently walked in the Falguni and Shane Peacock show during New York Fashion Week. How was that?
I was just trying to walk as fast as possible down the catwalk. I kept thinking how crazy all those tall skinny bitches are backstage and I was like, 'Is that really Joan Rivers staring up at me?' Seriously though, Falguni and Shane Peacock make the illest clothes and they designed all of my outfits for the tour, so I'm very grateful. Joan caught me backstage and said, 'This outfit isn't for the average girl, but I bet you can clap your ass together for Detroit.'
What are some other crazy things people have said to you about your style?
After my performance on David Letterman, he came out and
said, 'Now open your Bibles everyone.'
Any fashion aspirations of your own?
Actually I'm working on a clothing line that definitely goes back to my Detroit roots. It will be trailer park couture with a flash of stripper flair. I'm sure every daddy will want his little girl to be wearing it.
You must have seen lots of bling when touring with Lil' Wayne. Any extravagance you can share with us?
Lets just say 30,000 one dollar bills doesn't go very far when you go with Wayne, Baby and Drake to a strip club. We
were at King of Diamonds in Miami, and when we left it was literally
raining dollar bills and the strippers were two feet deep in ones.
What's the most flattering thing a fan has done for you?
My friends sent me this YouTube clip of a National Japanese Cheer Team, in full on gear; flipping, dancing and tumbling to "This is What Rock N Roll Looks Like." Not only was I flattered, but also they must have made a lot of men happy.
Oh, and this chick got my face tatted on the back of her neck. So I guess when her boyfriend is doing her doggy style he stares into my eyes. How romantic.
First of all, I fucking hate chocolate! If he brings me any of that shit he gets a negative ten. However, bring me a bottle of Zany and a pair of Alexander McQueen heels -- I might just fall in love.

Yesterday we paired our favorite looks from Snow White & the Huntsman (which opens today!) with styles off the runway and today we learned that one of Charlize Theron's gowns in the movie was actually made with the exoskeletons of dung beetles that costume designer Colleen Atwood stumbled upon in Thailand. Whoa. [via The Hollywood Reporter/Fashionista]
Many have heard by now that the CEO of Urban Outfitters is a conservative who once donated to Rick Santorum's senate campaign so it's not too shocking that the brand is now shilling these pun-ny Mitt Romney tees. It remains to be seen whether they'll be worn ironically by liberal kids or seriously by conservative hipsters, however. [via Refinery 29/The Cut]

billboards have popped up in L.A. in honor of Adam Yauch
(MCA) of the Beastie Boys. Shepard Fairey and photographer Glen E.
Friedman collab'ed on this design by Fairey, with one up around Sunset and Las Palmas and
the other on Fairfax, just south of Santa Monica Boulevard:

Friedman also collab'ed on a billboard with artist Kaves. It features a powerful Yauch lyric from the Ill Communication track "Sure Shot" and is located at Sunset and San Vicente:
The L.A. billboards came to be after Beastie Boys fan Jason May contacted Kaves, who agreed to be a part of the tribute project. Fairey also came on board and Friedman allowed both artists to use his photos. Friedman discusses those photos of the Beasties, which were taken in L.A. in 1985, in this L.A. Weekly piece about the billboards.
And, it should be noted, that we're not sleeping on the public art tribute front out here in NYC. The Entree LS crew did this amazing mural out in Midwood:

Happy National Doughnut Day, everyone! Let's all throw caution and weeks of hot yoga to the wind and indulge in America's favorite fried doughy treat! Doughnuts are near and dear to a lot of people's hearts, but Brooklynites seem to hold them in especially high esteem. It seems like just about every bakery in the borough has its own take on the treat, ranging from haute to down home. In honor of today's deep-fried holiday, here's our guide to our favorite Brooklyn doughnuts.
(P.S. Participating Krispy Kreme locations are giving away doughnuts today for free, no purchase necessary. Run, don't walk! More info here.)
Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop, Greenpoint
727 Manhattan Ave; (718) 389-3676
This little time capsule of a '50s coffee shop can be found on a bustling strip of Manhattan Ave. in Greenpoint between Norman and Meserole Avenues. We highly recommend sitting and ordering at the counter, where there's always a group of elderly men and women whiling away their afternoons with crossword puzzles and visiting over coffee. Peter Pan also makes a damn good doughnut. Dense and actually kinda filling, we love them all but recommend the toasted coconut ones in particular.
Dough, Bed-Stuy/Clinton Hill
305 Franklin Ave.; (347) 533-754
These doughnuts are huge. And fluffy. And deliciously fatty without being greasy. They also come in an array of unusual flavors like Blood Orange and Poppy Seed (which is our personal favorite). And for the summer, Dough has a stand in Smorgasburg, so North Williamsburg residents can get on this magic.
Dun-Well Doughnuts, Bushwick
222 Montrose Ave.; (347) 294-0871
To all you vegan junk-food addicts out there, here's your source: Dun-Well Doughnuts has over 50 flavors (including fun stuff like Rosewater and Mexican Chocolate) and has options for people with every food allergy under the sun. The doughnuts are light and airy, and pack a lot of flavor.
Pies 'n' Thighs, South Williamsburg
166 S.4th St.; 347-529-6090
This picture doesn't do justice to the general uber-crowdidness and uber-hipsteriness of Pies 'n' Thighs, a favorite spot for most of Williamsburg. Their doughnuts, much like their food, are good ol' fashioned Southern-style and made from scratch. Cakey and moist with the fat they're cooked in, they're delicious but not for the faint of heart. We recommend the chocolate cake doughnut -- that is, if you can handle it.
7th Avenue Donut Shop, Park Slope
324 7th Ave.; (718) 768-3410
The biggest draw of the 7th Avenue Donut Shop is that it's open 24/7 and is always stocked. The homemade doughnuts are light and soft, and maybe if you're lucky you can get 'em while they're still warm! A must-know for Slopers with the munchies.
Dunkin' Donuts, Everywhere
Dunkin's doughnuts may not be the fanciest, but there's no homemade, local or organic schtick to be found and their coffee has a cult following. (Just ask Whit Stillman!) DD is also giving away free doughnuts today, but you need to buy a drink. Info here.
1. It's directed by Harmony Korine (who's been working on awesomely weird-looking movie, Spring Breakers, starring Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and a Kevin Federline-looking James Franco).
2. It features bandmates Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney in fuzzy baby onesies being carried by massive-looking people in scary Black Keys masks.
3. There's a weird cameo by the ATL Twins who appear to be eating gold (and, incidentally, also appear in the forthcoming Spreak Breakers).
But, really, don't let us try to over-analyze it for you...check it out for yourself.
Welcome to Trailer Trash, highlighting the best, worst and so-so in new movie trailers.
NYC's bicycle messengers are about to get the action-hero treatment with the August 24th release of Premium Rush, which has a trailer featuring a lot of X-TREME RAWK (so maybe turn down the volume on your computer before you click play). The film was directed by David Koepp (Mission: Impossible, Spider-Man) and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Shannon, Dania Ramirez and Jamie Chung, with Levitt playing a messenger named Wilee with a mysterious package that's wanted by the bad guys. It looks like a cross between Speed and Crank. With bikes.
So... we're hungry. Instead of eating our leftover thai food from lunch that we swore we wouldn't finish today because we have to fit into a tight dress tonight, we spent some time sniffing around for some fun, food-related items for you to buy. PLEASE DO NOT EAT ANY OF THESE ITEMS.

The New York phenomenon of glorifying street food, namely that of the Asian persuasion, isn't terribly new, but it is growing, and along with it, a love for cocktails laden with all sorts of quirky ingredients (Tang, vinegar, chiles and smoked cherry Coke). Loving the heat and the grease, I've made my way around to quite a few of them (and actually worked in one of them as well) bowling through noodles, fried rice, and long beans. No meal at these peppercorn-spiked marathons should be without a cold drink to refresh the palate and reverse the burning magic of Szechuan peppercorns. Here are five favorites:

Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee kicks off tomorrow, which basically means that Britons can get shitfaced for four days in celebration of their monarch's sixty years of rule. While many of us picture a white-haired, kind-looking little old lady who favors hats, pastel suit dresses and sensible shoes, there was a time when the Queen rocked some seriously fashionable dresses -- so fashionable, in fact, that her gowns could rival those of her granddaughter-in-law and perhaps even her former daughter-in-law (that would be the Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Diana, respectively). Whether you plan to celebrate the Jubilee or not, take a look at these 15 High Fashion Photos of a Young Queen Elizabeth.

Like many people who were lucky to know the late, great performance artist, playwright and downtown theater pioneer Tom Murrin, we were heartbroken when he passed away in March. Tom was a lovely, generous and just deeply kind person who wrote regularly for Paper and Papermag over the years, using our publication to support and champion the work of his peers in New York's experimental theater scene. He was beloved by his Paper family (and basically everyone he met) and we really miss him.
This Sunday, June 3rd, Tom's wife Patricia Sullivan is hosting an afternoon of words, images, and performances honoring Tom and his remarkable life from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at La Mama's Ellen Stewart Theater (66-68 East 4th St.) with a reception to follow. We'll be there to celebrate Tom and his amazing work as his alter egos the Alien Comic and Jack Bump, and we hope you will be too.

Fiona Apple's new (and much-discussed!) album, The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do, comes out in two weeks (June 19th, to be exact) and to whet her fans' appetites, the singer-songwriter has released another track, "Werewolf." Apple's wistfully poetic ode to a break-up even includes a sampling of childrens' gleefully insane shouting (starting at 2:09) that the artist recorded at an elementary school playground near her house in L.A.
Listen to "Werewolf" on Pitchfork.
Happy 44th birthday Scott Wolf! To celebrate, we present to you a photo of him in his underwear, from the little-known 1996 film The Evening Star.
Fun fact: Did you know that he is married to Kelley from Real World New Orleans, and they are expecting their second child soon.

8) The Times has an interview with Mad Men's Jared Harris, who plays Lane Pryce, about last night's ultra-depressing episode. Asked how Matthew Weiner broke the news to him about his character's plot twist, Harris said, "He said, "Listen, let's go up to my office." Now that's always bad news. And then when we got into the office he offered me some really expensive brandy -- that was really big trouble. He went, "I've got something I need to speak to you about," and I went, "Uh-oh." [NYT]

The reggae icon kicks off Celebrate Brooklyn's outdoor summer concerts at Prospect Park Bandshell with a free concert.
