- Fashion does not have to prove that it is serious. It is the proof that intelligent frivolity can be something creative and positive.
I already know that this has been out for a while now, but it can never be too late to give credit where it’s deserved. Lana Del Rey is quickly becoming one of my most all time favorite artists and it should come as no surprise. She’s a breath of fresh air for music where cool is suddenly effortless as soon as her voice intoxicates your ears. She’s beautiful, virtuous in her lyrics and a phenomenal talent. If you don’t have it already, pick up her album Born To Die, I promise it wont disappoint. In the mean time, she recently gave this live performance of Kurt Cobain’s infamous “Heart Shaped Box” in Australia.. and it’s absolutely riveting…
The amazingly beautiful and talented Lana Del Rey has recently been announced as the new face of H&M’s 2012 Autumn/ Winter campaign and here are the first few shots! In a matter of weeks we can even see Lana make her commercial debut for the Swedish fashion house while singing a never before heard release. In the meantime, she’s just released her new video titled “Summertime Sadness” from one of my favorite albums, Born To Die.
If you haven’t heard this new song by Will.i.am titled T.H.E (The Hardest Ever), you must have been living under a pop culture rock. It’s really fun, catchy, and the beat is pretty hypnotic. My only fear is that if you listen to it too much, you might get sick of it, but the video is really captivating and a thrill. I like it a lot! Watch.
I love Lady Gaga, and the fact that she can perform headless on X Factor makes me love her art even more. Amazing.
Duran Duran – Girl Panic!
The band never looked so good in this delightful video directed by one of my favorite people, Jonas Akerlund. He has an incredible eye for glamour in his attempt to capture the essence of one’s music. Other notable works of his include Lady GaGa’s “Paparazzi” video.
