Kanye West stand up comedy debut

Screen Shot 2015-09-01 at 4.36.00 PM

And before you clock out of work today…here’s a youtube that turns Kanye West’s Video Music Awards Video Vanguard award acceptance speech (aka “YE Talk”) into Kanye’s stand up comedy debut.

Twitter is synonymous with twisted up panties, in that the twittersphere loves to lock arms and rage en masse when faced with a reason to be mad…sometimes that reason is real, sometimes it’s conflated. Today’s twitter scandal is a bit of both.

CL and Jeremy Scott for Paper

Korean pop-star and overall cool gal CL poses on the cover of the new ‘Paper Magazine’ with her “best friend” Moschino designer Jeremy Scott (he of the stuffed animal and winged sneaker fad of 2013). CL is often spotted in the front row of Jeremy’s Fashion Week shows, and has worn his loud pop-culture-reference pieces in videos and onstage. And in the cover Q&A with the two, Jeremy explains why his designs are worn by pop stars like Katy Perry, Rihanna and Miley rather than the Hollywood actresses that most high-fashion houses court. More interestingly…CL honestly and accurately describes the hivemind of the Asian teen girl.

(Yes. It’s Tom Hardy catching the holy ghost of Wu-Tang’s “C.R.E.A.M.”)

Miss Info: These are the moments when you scream out to the heavens…Thank you, Internets!
I’ve made no secret of my awkward obsession with actor Tom Hardy. I’ve extolled his virtues on this blog (like this Bane fashion analysis). I’ve sat through weak plots and corny dialogue to support his films (for example, The Drop, which was unoriginal. The only good thing about the movie was Tom Hardy with an adorable pitbull puppy. I’m even going to watch the poorly-reviewed, straight-to-ondemand Child 44 just to see Hardy tackle a Russian accent). And I’ve urged all my friends to go see Mad Max:Fury Road, and Peaky Blinders, and Warrior. But I had no idea that all this time, Tom was performing Dubsmash rap videos of Action Bronson, Wu-Tang Clan, 50 Cent, etc. with his friend and stunt double Jacob Tomuri. Thank you, Jacob, and thank you, Vulture, for ending my week with this gift!

MissInfo: People are usually shocked when I tell them that I’m actually kind of shy in real life…but it’s true. Pulling out stories from others is a breeze, but talking about myself is pure struggle. That said, I loved opening up my humble abode to our friends from the FADER and Sonos for their incredible “At Home With” series because I know that there are so many folks out there just like me, cramming family, friends, work, and of course, music into their day.
Watch as I drag MissInfo.TV‘s Mikey Fresh to the farmer’s market, have a brainstorming meeting about our upcoming site redesign (it’s finally coming!), eat bagels and lox with my girls, and listen to some tunes with my 3-month old baby boy, Max. Most importantly…I get to share some thoughts about being a working mom isn’t a sacrifice, it’s a bonus!

Obama Tiger Beat

Miss Info: Of all the interesting investments that Nas has made over the years…from Mass Appeal Magazine to Sweet Chick chicken-and-waffles to the Rock The Bells concerts…this one is one I would have never expected. Nas, along with his tech-investment savvy manager Anthony Saleh, basketball star Kevin Durant, Nick Cannon, Atom Factory founder Troy Carter, Daily Mail (which recently bought EliteDaily), and Steve Tisch (as in the NY Giants’ Tisch Family)…are Fashionista of the teen fan magazine, Tiger Beat.

“It was all a dream, I used to read ‘Word Up’ Magazine…”
Biggie immortalized the practice of poring over teeny-bopper magazines, ripping out the pages, and taping them to our walls…the way many of us who grew up in the pre-iphone era expressed our “likes”, “retweets,” and “faves.” And while Word Up and Right On! spoke to the fans of Another Bad Creation, Wreckx-n-Effect, and later, Aaliyah, the biggest player in the fan-mag business was Tiger Beat (and to a lesser degree, Bop). The formula was simple…


It’s Future in the booth…not the recording booth, the confessional kind in this new clip for “Kno The Meaning,” directed by Vincent Lou. Perhaps Future Hendrix is also praying that no colleagues come out their face saying anything slick about him in this Summer of Wild Flying Beef Patties.

Chicago’s Dreezy signed with Interscope late last year and this week, the 20-year old rapper/vocalist from the South Side dropped her first major-label EP, Call It What You Want. A follow up to Dreezy’s 2014 Schizo mixtape , the new 5-song EP features collaborations with Teyana Taylor on “How I’m Coming,” as well as K-Camp on “Ain’t Rockin’ With You,” Unlike the pure drill sound of other members of Chicago’s new gen of rappers (both male, and female, i.e. Katie Got Bands), Dreezy is aiming for a shared space of coquette lady raps and radio-friendly R&B melodies…and the results are likeable and promising.

Styles P tribute

Miss Info: I don’t know if Styles will ever read this…he doesn’t have to, he knows the friendship and support is always there. But I wanted to share his message about the death of his step-daughter, and a story of my own…

Finally! I’ve been holding my breath waiting for these ever since Todd James tipped me off to his new collaboration with Pharrell
For the first time, Adidas let artists modify the original Superstar shelltoe sneakers…the ones embedded in hip hop’s DNA ever since Run DMC hit that b-boy stance in the 1980’s. And since Pharrell was the original art-connoisseur hip hop artist…his taste in collaborators on this, the latest in his ongoing partnership with Adidas, is impeccable. From our dear friend Todd James aka REAS, to the twisted Japanese manga-mind of Mr., to photographer Cass Bird, to futurism architect Zaha Hadid…they each got to add their own stamp to the shell of the iconic sneaker toes.
I want every single pair! But especially these REAS joints. Start lining up for the drop on August 7th.

Check out more photos and videos of the Pharrell x Adidas Originals Supershells…
