(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.

More choice…seems like a good thing, right?


I’m fascinated and terrified by the cult of Scientology and it’s relationship with Hollywood’s heavyhitters, like Tom Cruise and John Travolta. And the critics have been raving about Alex Gibney’s Scientology exposé “Going Clear,” which finally airs on HBO on March 29th. Can’t wait. In the meantime, you should check out the 2012 Maureen Orth Vanity Fair article that had Tom Cruise and the Scientology Church flipping out.

Check out the trailer…
As well as a interview with “Going Clear” author Lawrence Wright and the South Park Scientology episode…

Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney

Miss Info:
Lady Gaga is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Taylor Kinney. And…I mean, it’s not news to anyone who has seen these two together, or watched Kinney on the TV series Chicago Fire or Vampire Diaries…um, Gaga’s man is super hot, lol. And doesn’t exactly have similarly extreme fashion tastes like his beloved. He looks more of an Aeropostale type than a meat-suit wearer. Which just goes to show you that love isn’t just about matching Givenchy cleavage blazers.

According to Gaga’s IG announcement, her man proposed on Valentine’s Day…and honestly, out of all the oversized, glacial engagement rocks that we’ve seen paraded around on social media from couples who end up split up and bitter months later…
This ring is probably the most beautiful one I’ve ever seen. Good job, hunky actor…

House of Cards Season 3 Netflix

‘House of Cards’ highly anticipated Season 3 wasn’t supposed to hit your Netflix lineup until February 27th. But like an tantalizing invitation to cancel all your NYFW and All-Star Weekend work duties…this just happened on your boob tube.

And it’s not just Episode 1…


Ummm. This is not O.K. This is not a “lituation.” This is a disaster.
According to Comedy Central… Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show.

morris day and HAIM "Jungle Love"

Well this is a bizarre combination that I never thought I’d see…The Grammy-nominated sisters of alt-pop group HAIM played ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ last night. And instead of performing their usual Urban Outfitters mood hits like “Forever”…they served as backup singers for conk legend Morris Day and the Time on that ‘Purple Rain’-soundtrack classic “Jungle Love.”
HAIM aren’t exactly the Apollonia 6 but they kinda killed it.

missy elliott super bowl

Yes, Katy Perry’s Super Bowl halftime show looked like an even scarier version of Channing Tatum’s hallucination in 22 Jump Street, but credit where credit’s due: she broke off a slice of the biggest show on Earth to let one of hip-hop’s true legends, Missy Elliott, rock out (and subsequently steal the show with a medley of decade-old hits that clearly still ring out today).

Miss Info: Hold up! Before you bow down to Missy’s freshly-reinstated greatness…here’s a little #MissInfoExclusive ; ) We heard an unreleased remix from Diplo and Skrillex (aka Jack U) of their massive pop/dance hit “Take U There” but this one featured two incredible verses from our girl Missy Elliott, not just spittin’ in high heeheeheeheehaw form, but also giving up a little buttery “Hot Boys” melody too. We’re as ready for this Missy renaissance as the rest of the world…and even though this collabo was recorded before all the Super Bowl hype, it would just in time to catch the wave. Hope to be able to share the remix with you guys soon!

Game of Thrones Season 5 Tyrion Lannister
(Varys and Tyrion: The last two people you want on your bad side.)

Miss Info: I’m flying blind here and it feels good. What I mean is that I no longer have any clue what will happen on the upcoming season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. A few years ago, I made the mistake of getting hooked on the actual Game of Thrones books by George R.R. Martin. It was a mistake on multiple levels. Mainly because they’re over thousand pages each. What a monumental time suck! How many hours was that, sitting on my ass, eating Pirate’s Booty, hunched over my Kindle, not interacting with humans? If I hadn’t quit these books, would I even be settled down and expecting my first baby today? *mind blown*

But my point is that, the HBO series has finally outpaced my brain’s stash of spoilers. Which makes me even more excited for the start of Game of Thrones Season 5 on April 12, 2015. And judging from this leaked trailer, we will get to see the world of the throne-less wandering Mother of Dragons (Daenerys Targaryen) collide with the conniving incestuous shaky kingdom of the Lannister Lions (Cersei and Jaime Lannister, Margaery Tyrell, and Tommen Baratheon) all thanks to the ultimate backdoor puppet-master Varys the eunuch and the teflon-don Tyrion Lannister….

rihanna kanye west paul mccartney

Hi Rihanna….
Out the blue, RiRi tweeted a link to her website with the first song off her upcoming album. “FourFiveSeconds” is an acoustic pop-rock ballad featuring the heaviest of hitters…Kanye West and the legendary Paul McCartney (who? lol.)

Here’s a line from Kanye’s verse:

“Woke up an optimist, sun was shining I’m positive, then I heard you was talkin’ trash, hold me back I’m bout to spazz…I’m four, five seconds from wilding and we got 3, 4 days ’til Friday…If I go to jail tonight, promise you’ll pay my bail…”

Hahaa…this is like the happiest theme for anger management therapy ever.

Listen to Rihanna, Ye and Paul rock out below….



Miss Info: This was one of my favorite events of 2014…I hung out with dance songstress Kiesza (“Hideaway”, “Teach Me” Feat. Joey Badass, “Take You There” with Diplo and Skrillex) all day in New York City, touring some of her favorite low-key hangouts. We ate some healthy hummus on the Upper West Side, shivered in the snow under Riverside Drive in Washington Heights, visited her dance crew in Midtown, and ended up vintage fashion shopping down in the East Village. Solid field trip all the way around. You can watch all the hilarity and $300 Hee Haw-branded overalls here.

To cap off the fun, Kiesza got down to what she does best…rocking Reebok Classics and the fader’s NYC celebration of music and fashion, “Coast To Coast.” And she even wore the sparkly number we bought together. Takes a real diva to pull off a turquoise satin blouson bomber;)

Watch the beautifully edited concert clip (from our buddies at the fader and Treeboy Pictures)…
