Lauryn Hill Vamped in Woolrich to Kick Off NYFW
A brand that has been serving up a reliable, somewhat utilitarian product for nearly 200 years would be forgiven for sitting out fashion week. But Woolrich, the country’s oldest outerwear manufacturer, is remarkably spry for its age. Last night, the makers of flannel-driven gear kicked off fashion week with a packed performance by Lauryn Hill, star of its much buzzed-about American Soul campaign.
Ms. Hill, who is on tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of her iconic album The Mis-Education…
V Can’t Over Nicki Minaj’s Made In America Performance
This past holiday weekend, Jay Z brought the American people the festival of all music festivals, Made In America, back to Philadelphia. An strong lineup of acts including Janelle Monae, Post Malone, Meek Mill, and many, many more delivered what some may call, the freshest musical performances of the summer.
The obvious standout and deservedly high-anticipated performance is owned by none other than the Queen of Rap herself, Nicki Minaj. Showing up to Philly with a brightly-neon hair style an…
Shakira Shakes Her Way to Victory on ‘El Dorado’ Tour
The past few years haven’t been the easiest for Shakira—or her fans. Several factors, including the birth of her two children and a judging stint on The Voice, prevented her from going on tour even as she was still releasing music (2014’s self-titled album). A bout of writer’s block left the star wondering if she could continue recording at all. And as she put out El Dorado, a Grammy-winning knockout album of renewed Latin trap and reggaeton sounds, and geared up to finally hit the road,…

The Struts and Kesha, “Body Talks”
Kesha always excels when she dabbles in glittery glam rock. This time around, she’s helping rising rock band The Struts give a new take on their rousing and snazzy hit single, her valley girl rasp complimenting lead singer Luke Spiller’s old-school British rock accent and giving the jam a welcome flirty touch.
Lady Gaga Gives Us A Preview of Hedi Slimane’s Celine
This year, there was perhaps no announcement that shook the fashion world to its icy core more than the news of Hedi Slimane succeeding Phoebe Philo as creative director of Celine. Back in 2009, there was perhaps nothing that shook up the entire world more than the arrival of Lady Gaga, a woman that continues to shock and inspire in various ways.
So it made so much sense when Gaga took to The Lourve last night (and Instagram early this morning) proudly donning Slimane’s first design for C…

Michael Jackson’s influence on culture transcends his own self-made artistry. Through his unparalleled talent, he pushed our expectations of what a performer could bring to the recording booth or stage.
