met

If the White House Correspondents Dinner is Nerd Prom, then Anna Wintour’s annual Met Gala is…Fashion Halloween? Well, this year, since the Costume Institute exhibit is honoring Chinese art and how it has influenced fashion…I’m cringing in advance about all the possible ways that celebs might mishandle this theme. If someone wears a kimono I’ll go postal in the nearest Forever 21.

Bud-Light-Last-Week-Tonight-John-Oliver-HBO-Parody

HBO’s ‘Last Week Tonight’, starring ‘Daily Show’-alum John Oliver has quickly become my favorite way of learning about what I should be mad about in the world. It’s actually taken that similar role from ‘The Daily Show,’ and finessed it by making longer rants, with less skits, more context, and all the razor-sharp insight. I urge you to watch Oliver’s breakdown of the Ferguson uprising, his incredible interview with Edward Snowden in Russia (that finally made a real-life comparison of the NSA scandal that I could understand), and his explanation of how ridiculously unfair college sports is to athletes….please cancel your lunch date, and just start watching.

This past Sunday…’Last Week Tonight’ focused on a recent marketing slogan that somehow made it onto bottles of Bud Light beer. Seriously…what the fxck!?!

Did Rick Ross somehow get a copy-writing gig at Bud Light’s ad agency?

Not only did John Oliver take down Bud’s corporate checks and balances system hilariously…but the bonus parody commercial at the end, starring Wyatt Cenac, Alex Karpovsky, etc, was amazing.

Baltimore_mom-Freddie-Gray-riots

The situation in Baltimore, Maryland this week has been a powder keg, or a raisin in the sun. The tweet that floored me was from @Shugah, who quoted a very prophetic James Baldwin Esquire interview from 1968. (Read that for some head crack.) But back to Baltimore, 2015…the complex issues from Freddie Gray’s unexplained spinal injury, his death, the release of his unrelated police record, the days of peaceful protest, and then this week’s explosion of violence, looting, and vandalism…can not be summed up neatly or patched up with a meme. It has to be added to the growing list of issues and incidents that are festering around the country.
But…I just wanted to share an interview that CBS did with Toya Graham, the Baltimore mom who angrily pulled her 16-year-old son off the street when she spotted him throwing rocks at riot police.

Russel-Wilson-Ciara-State-Dinner
(Hair. Laid.)

After first being spotted together earlier in April, Ciara and Russell Wilson made a very public debut on Tuesday night when Ciara accompanied her new Seattle Seahawks football playing beau to the White House State Dinner to honor Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (huh? Why was Wilson even invited to that? By the way, Abe is getting a lot of heat for censoring journalists back in Japan). The couple played coy by instagramming about White House china patterns (Seriously. Both Ciara and Russell)….but looked very handsome together in the photo opps.

Meanwhile…Ciara’s fans have been spamming her ex-fiance/babydaddy Future’s mentions with endless football emoji.
His response?….

amy-schumer-pranks-kim-kanye-time-100

Comedian Amy Schumer is having a particularly no-f*cks-given week and deserves to be saluted for that. On Tuesday night, she managed to both upstage Kanye and Kim Kardashian by fake-falling in front of them on the Time 100 gala red carpet, and simultaneously reveal their total composed lack of consideration for the lesser beings who unfortunately share this planet. GOTCHA, Kimye! I mean just look at the complete lack of reaction.

According to Amy, she asked her publicist if she could pretend to faceplant in from of them, and the publicist said…”well, I can’t stop you.” That’s a green light.

But while Schumer was flopping in front of Yeezy, her Comedy Central sketch comedy series, Inside Amy Schumer, was jumping off season 2…the two highlights being: 1) a catchy music video (co-starring Amber Rose and Method Man) about what America’s butt obsession really ignores. And 2) an incredible parody (co-starring Josh Charles of The Good Wife) of Friday Night Lights which addresses football’s rape culture. Ooof!

obama-bob-marley-museum-2015

President Obama is visiting Kingston, Jamaica this week (the first U.S. President to do so since Ronald Reagan) to participate in a summit of 15 Caribbean leaders. And as an enthusiastic Bob Marley fan, the Prez made an unannounced visit to his idol’s old home, which now houses the Bob Marley Museum.

All the good Kingston vibes got POTUS feeling irie enough to give his best opening statement ever…

jamie-xx

Miss Info: When I need to go to a lonely, quiet, contemplative place…or maybe is it more accurate to say, when I’m already in a lonely place and I need some music that leaves me there and doesn’t try to drag me to a stupid party to make me feel better…I know I can always rely on those moody Brits of The XX. Now this June, frontman Jamie XX (who has hip hop fans like Drake who also knows the pop music value of sadness) is releasing a solo album called In Colour. Can. Not. Wait. And if this new single “Loud Places,” that Jamie debuted on BBC Radio is any indication…the solo material will be very much in keeping with the xx vibes of previous albums like Coexist (it even features Jamie’s bandmate Romy) and I mean that in the best way possible.

Listen to Jamie XX’s “Loud Places” featuring Romy Madley Croft after the jump…

Fritz The Golden Retriever

(Fritz vs. Hard-shell Taco)

Miss Info: Just a brief break from all the rap stuff. I know there’s everything from Rich Homie Quan fleeing the Liv goons on a speedboat like he’s Sonny Crockett from Miami Vice And there Action Bronson cookin’ up with his red-headed doppelganger Mario Batali. And if you haven’t watched Mikey’s sit down with ASAP Rocky in Austin, that will touch anyone with a human heart.

But…for right now…you must watch this silly pet video. Seriously. I know I might have extra-hormone reactions to things these days but this shxt was just friggin’ hilarious to me…

Nikelab x Sacai 2015 outfit

MissInfo: I know all my guys here at MissInfo.TV get all worked up over Yankee hats with Supreme box logos on them, and every glimpse of Kanye’s Adidas Yeezy Boost was click crack on social media. But I’ve heard barely a peep about this Nikelab x Sacai collection from most folks. Maybe it’s because the set of pleat-backed jackets and hoodies are for women? Maybe it’s because Chitose Abe doesn’t have the Kardashians and the Rihannas of the world sitting next to the fashion editors at the Sacai shows? Not sure…but I’ve been a superfan of Sacai for the longest. Think wool baseball jackets with lace flounce backs, or combo wool and silk scarf dresses. Lots of tent shapes and weird colors, but so well done. This collaboration with Nike doesn’t have any of the sex appeal of H&M’s Alexander Wang hype-machine. But I love it. The Spring 2015 pieces will be on Nikelab on March 19th.

Check out NikeLab x Sacai’s great video presentation and their futuristic Air Max 90 interpretation, after the jump…

new iphone emoji OSX
(Just a few of the new emoji coming to your iphone this spring. Photo via The Next Web)

Miss Info: According to the techies, Apple has given app developers an updated beta version of their OS X software…complete with a new expanded set of emoji. New ways to express ourselves cryptically without words?! It’s like when our ancestors got a fork to go along with that fire burning in our caves!
Now we will have an “Apple Watch” emoji, and an updated “iPhone 6″ emoji, and so many more country flag emoji.
But what most folks are happiest about are the new diversity range of pre-existing emoji.
For example…once this new update is available, any time you click on an emoji that looks like a person, you will be able to choose from different racial options. And in the case of the family sets, you can choose between 2 dads, 2 moms, 2 daughters, 2 sons, etc.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 4.13.51 PM

More choice…seems like a good thing, right?
