What are you currently listening to?

A lot of things. I mean I’m obsessed with the Weeknd right now. I love all of what he’s doing. I love underground hip-hop music, I love trap music, a lot of DJs again.

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.

The time is almost here as Vogue Magazine’s highly-anticipated fall issue is near. The September issue, looked to by many in the fashion world as the biggest one every year, will feature Beyoncé as its cover star. Surfacing online via a fan site on Wednesday evening, Queen Bey is seen posing with wet hair in a lavender dress and purple coat draped over her shoulder.

On the music front, Bey will headline both Budweiser’s Made In America Festival and Global Citizen Festival in September.

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…

MissInfo:
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…
