Another day, another scam report related to the ever-unfolding college admissions scandal. And it involves none other than Mossimo Giannulli — the man who is currently on trial for allegedly bribing people to get his two daughters (Olivia Jade and Bella) into USC, alongside wife Lori Loughlin.

None


Yesterday, CNN resurfaced a 2016 interview with the fashion designer, in which he talks about the beginnings of his eponymous clothing company.

None


In the interview, Giannulli says that he went to USC without actually enrolling. But why? He wanted to pocket the tuition money from his parents so that he could start Mossimo. That's right, according to the piece, Giannulli admits to not only falsifying reports cards, but also giving his dad fake tuition bills so that he could use "this seed money to initiate his foray into the T-shirt biz."

"SC was expensive, so that was how I was starting my company. I used all that cash," Giannulli "unapologetically" told the publication. "I used to have hundreds of thousands of cash in my top drawer in my fraternity house. And I was like, 'This is kind of too easy. I need a bigger platform. If I had a bigger account base, I could really kill it.'"

A NXIVM Sex Cult Documentary Is Coming to HBOhttp://www.8617965.com/hbo-nxivm-documentary-2635007254.html

Last year, Smallville actor Allison Mack made headlines after she was arrested for her alleged involvement with a sex cult known as NXIVM. Now, a documentary series about the organization, Mack, and NXIVM founder, Keith Raniere, is on the way.

None


As Variety reports, HBO Documentary Films is currently producing the show, which will be helmed by Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer. The publication reports that the series will profile several people who joined the Albany, NY-based organization under the guise that it was a self-improvement organization.

Per prosecutors, Mack served as a recruiter for a secret sex cult within NXIVM, which drew members in with the promise of working on "women's empowerment." However, "slaves" were allegedly branded with Raniere's initials and coerced into having sex with him at the behest of Mack, who pled guilty to charges of racketeering related to the case. As for Raniere, he is currently awaiting the beginning of his trial.

HBO has yet to announce a tentative release date.

Bells Atlas on Their New Album, Oakland and Science Fictionhttp://www.8617965.com/bells-atlas-the-mystic-premiere-2634994839.html

Bells Atlas is a psychedelic pop band whose sound is located somewhere between heaven's gates and the inside of a video game. This kind of contradiction is their calling card. On the five-piece's new album The Mystic, which PAPER is sharing an early stream of, Bell Atlas strips Afro-pop, jazz, hip-hop, electronic and ambient music for parts, using them to build a softly colored soundscapes that are equal parts angelic and mechanical.

None


Moments on Bells Atlas' new album feel like drifting in space or the sea, but don't make the mistake of thinking their submersive music is watery. Intricate instrumental detail is hidden under a guise of ambience. The band expertly crafts meditative grooves worthy of Solange, but lace them subtly with off-kilter, kaleidoscopic discord, reminiscent of a band like tUnE-yArDs or Dirty Projectors. Woven into the body of each glowing song, is dissonance: glitchy synths and beeping, guitar wails, muscular bass-lines and propulsive drums. The effect doesn't put you to sleep, but rather, dissolves you and transports what's left to new world.

None


This gravity-defying, yet snug, intimate universe is built through vocalist and lyricist Sandra Lawson-Ndu's both deeply personal and expansively philosophical storytelling. Lawson-Ndu is a Nigerian-American woman raised in the Bay Area on Christianity and science fiction. However, her life became increasing shaped by mystical spirituality and discourses of mental illness — particularly at the influence of one friend, whose struggle with mental health inspired much of The Mystic. Lawson-Ndu sings about hurt and hope with remarkable compassion, in an abstract spiritual language that draws on prayer, ghost stories, science fiction and self-care.

None


As far as the style and method of their music, Bells Atlas have much in common with pop experimenters like OSHUN and Ava Luna, but Bells Atlas' irreverent embrace of contradiction — ambience and discord, spirituality and science, one woman's intimate experiences and five people's musical synergy — is all their own.

None


PAPER chatted with Sandra Lawson-Ndu as well as guitarist Derek Barber and bassist Doug Stuart about The Mystic's inspirations and coming up in Oakland.

None


None


What is the story you want to tell on The Mystic? What ideas or experiences were you processing on it?

None


SANDRA LAWSON-NDU: The Mystic is inspired by a connection to the person in my life who sparked my love for storytelling and interest in both the mystical and the fantastical. In my eyes [this person] embraces intangible realities in beautiful ways. When they began to struggle with their mental health, they held that magic as a truth-seer and a storyteller. This narrative exists in some of the songs, but it's really the questions that resulted that are the basis of many of the stories here: what expressions needed a diagnosis? What caused pain versus what was the result of a different way of interpreting life and offering new paths of seeing? What was clinical vs mystical? How do we make space for each other's beliefs and varied lenses of experience?

None


How do you navigate the ideas/visions/experiences of a 5-person group Is there one principal songwriter?

None


DOUG STUART: A lot of the songs on this record started from a drum loop, and the basic framework was built on top of these loops, by 2 or 3 of us in a bedroom studio. From there, we made sure to get everyone's instrumental voice as an overdub on top of the framework that was already there. Often times, there was something added that significantly changed the course of the song. It would either inspire a new section or bring a different mood, or color, to the song. It's a very collaborative process that demands an open mind and makes you look forward to what the song could be, rather than being attached to what it was. Although the instrumental components of this record are very collaborative, the lyrics are written by Sandra. I think this helps make the sound and vision both cohesive and fresh.

None


How did coming up in Oakland influence you as artists?

None


DOUG STUART: One of the things that make the Oakland scene so great, is that it's truly diverse. It's home to so many different types of artists that all play and attend each other's shows, but there's rarely any imitation. So we're constantly being inspired by a lot of different sounds and styles, without the pressure of having "fit in" to any kind of box. It makes for some really unique and inspired work.

None


What are the ingredients of your sound? Technically, and as far as your influences.

None


DOUG STUART: A big part of the sound of this record is in due to the process of writing over drum loops that were recorded on a phone, and that often sounded completely blown out and distorted. These raw drum sounds were a starting point for the palette of each song and inspired us to take chances with the synth, guitar, and vocal tones. A lot of the influences for this process and these sounds are rooted in hip hop production. MF Doom and Knxledge are two artists that I can point to as strong influences on the sounds that we were working with for this album.

None


Tell me about the phrase "Confident. Open. Persistent but Daily," sung over again on "Rogue Dream." Is that a mantra for you?

None


SANDRA LAWSON-NDU: The song is about trying to pull a loved one out of a dark place. You want to acknowledge their strength while you try to somehow help them through, realizing that it's not always in your power to shift things. This is all laid out in a dream like quest that travels between small victories and disappointments. The mantra represents a tool (or spell) for keeping that determination afloat. There's a part of it that can be grounding but there's also a part that's weighted with that hope and expectation of fixing things

None


None


How does spirituality play into the album?

None


SANDRA LAWSON-NDU: I was baptized Methodist, and grew up drifting between Baptist, Non Denominational and Nigerian Anglican churches all the while attending Catholic school. So albeit a very, very Christian lean, I was already in a mix of some contrasting ideas of what was "true" and what was not. Not to mention there was that whole other side that delighted in the possibility that some parts of Philip Pullman's trilogy "His Dark Materials" HAD to be true!

Today, I connect to different ideas of spirituality. Some of these appear in contrast to each other, but in my eyes they also share beautiful common threads that depict very human desires to connect, find grounding, and feel supported. I sometimes find myself praying or sending some hope outward to something that exists beyond me. I use Tarot as a means to organize my thoughts. I refer to things as magic and think that a few people in my life are truth-seers. Who's to say what's right or how truth manifests?

None


The record returns to dreams and sleep a lot, there's sort of a tension between quiet and chaos. How were you navigating that?

None


"As a Nigerian American woman, I wanted to create something in this genre because growing up there were so few reflections of black people in the sci-fi fantasy worlds."

None


SANDRA LAWSON-NDU: When sleep comes up in the songs it's often a symbol of peace of mind, often to say "it's ok to rest from all of this." Dreams and fantasy play different roles throughout, but overall they are not there as a means to escape a daunting reality, instead there's an idea of moving through all of it at the same time, the mystical and fantastical with the recognizable and tangible.

None


Similarly, how do you navigate ambience and dissonance sonically? The record uses both so effectively.

None


DEREK BARBER: There is something really satisfying about consonant melodies/harmonies matched with elements of dissonance — almost as if they create a sound that is far more interesting then if they lacked their counterparts. We strive to create our own sonic worlds with the intention of being inhabited by listeners. I think ambience and dissonance are just two of the tools which help bring about these musical worlds.

None


None


A press release called The Mystic a "sci-fi fantasy." How did and which science fiction influenced this record?

None


SANDRA LAWSON-NDU: I think it's beautiful to use these imaginative genres to observe our own realities. For me, the best [sci-fi] has the potential to create a sense of openness to what is possible, to help us depart from acceptable norms. I wanted to talk about mental health and I felt like this kind of mystical imagery was a way to enter the conversation from a different angle. As a Nigerian American woman, I wanted to create something in this genre because growing up, there were so few reflections of black people in sci-fi and fantasy worlds. That exclusion was in a way saying that black people were neither a part of the magic nor held a place in the future. When you listen to this record, imagine that so many of the folks here are black and brown. This is just one representation of "Our" current state of magic.

None


As far as books, the most memorable were the stories from Garth Nix, Sharon Shinn, and Phillip Pullman. What came later was Octavia Butler, Ursula Le Guin, Ben Okri and Akwaeke Emezi, not all classified as Sci-fi fantasy but presenting stories of alternate ideas of reality.

None


"We want people to feel like they unknowingly took psychedelic drugs, but rather than reacting with fear or stress, they gave in to the experience."

None


What do you want people to experience with and take away from The Mystic?

None


DOUG STUART: We want people to feel like they unknowingly took psychedelic drugs, but rather than reacting with fear or stress, they gave in to the experience, and it turned out to be beautiful, transformative, and opened their mind and heart to new experiences and sounds to come... or something like that.

None

Beyoncé Fans Are Upset Ariana Grande Got Twice as Much For Coachellahttp://www.8617965.com/ariana-grande-beyonce-coachella-fee-2635005147.html

If a new report is to be believed, Ariana Grande made double what Beyoncé was estimated to have made last year as the headliner for Coachella. Needless to say, Beyoncé fans are less than pleased with the implications.

None


According to Variety, Grande's fee to headline this year's festival apparently clocked in at a cool $8 million. However, as Business Insider reported last year, Beyoncé was only paid $3 to $4 million for the same spot.

In case you forgot, Beyoncé's set (aka Beychella) was a history-making production that served as comprehensive encapsulation of her entire career — which was extra significant seeing as how Bey was also the first Black woman to headline the festival — and featured brand new set lists, choreography, and stage designs. Not only that, but Beyoncé also went the extra mile this year and released Homecoming, a new Netflix film chroniciling the singer's eight-month preparation for the 2018 performance.

None


None


And though Grande's appearance this year as the youngest-ever Coachella headliner is notable, many online are upset at the significant pay gap between the stars. That said, as Business Insider reports, it is entirely possible that Beyoncé ended up netting even more than $4 million given the fact that Homecoming is a Netflix exclusive.

None


Still, as many pointed out, it's more about the principle of the matter. Check out what the BeyHive is saying about the matter, below.

Does Kylie Jenner Miss Jordyn Woods?http://www.8617965.com/kylie-jenner-missing-jordyn-woods-2635003170.html

Female friendship is a twisted, delicate thing. Two women can be inseparable for years, then permanently stop speaking over a single perceived slight. Or over an alleged incident involving a playboy basketball player, Khloe Kardashian, and TMZ. Such was the tragic case of Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods, two former BFFs who are now no longer part of each other's lives.

None


Jenner and Woods were reportedly "texting" a while ago, but no real attempt has been made to mend their relationship post-scandal. Perhaps in an attempt to move on, both women have been keeping busy: Woods has been traveling to promote her false eyelash line overseas, while Jenner has been hanging out with her boyfriend Travis Scott and announcing new Kylie Cosmetics products.


None


Then, last night, Jenner gave the first public indication that she missed her ex-best friend. Kylie posted a throwback bathroom bikini pic on Instagram, which wouldn't be unusual for her — except eagle eyed commenters immediately carbon dated the image back to a beach vacation she and Woods took together a few months before the cheating scandal broke.


None


Woods isn't in the photo, but scroll back on both her and Kylie's grids and you'll find a series of mirror selfies they took together in the very same bathroom back in January. They're wearing matching lime green swimsuits; Jenner is cradling Stormi. Simpler times! Better times.

None


Jordyn also posted a swimsuit selfie yesterday, although hers was sponcon. What does it all mean? Hopefully that a reunion is on the horizon. Friendships have been mended after worse betrayals! And we refuse to believe that Peruvian friendship commitment ceremony was all for nothing.

Dave East Thinks Lil Nas X’s 'Old Town Road' Is 'Wack'http://www.8617965.com/dave-east-lil-nas-old-town-road-2635002979.html

While the rest of the world is giddying up to the yeehaw anthem of the century, Lil Nas X's country-rap crossover hit, "Old Town Road," Dave East is trying to get off the horse. In an Instagram story posted on April 18, 2019, the rapper told his followers, "This 'Old Town Road' shit is fucking wack." Don't you think that's a little harsh, Mr. East?


None


"Old Town Road" has seen immense commercial success since gaining popularity through internet memes on social media. It's been a rocky, exciting story to follow: first, Billboard pulled the track from the country charts, and then it went No. 1 on the Hot 100 Chart. Billy Ray Cyrus also lent his vocals to a remix of the track, resulting in Break The Internet-level madness on Twitter. Cyrus can also thank "Old Town Road" for propelling his classic song, "Achy Breaky Heart," back into the streaming game, with outlets citing a 159% increase in on-demand audio streams for the week of April 11.


None


The song is a bop, combining relatively mid tempo drums and claps with a country-tinged plucks. The lyrics are jovial and celebratory of the yeehaw moment sweeping the nation. Clips from the music video for the "Old Town Road" remix support this overwhelmingly — Lil Nas X dances freely, jumps around and has a dance-off with friends in a parking lot. The song is pure fun.

None


Dave East doesn't seem to share the same sentiment, however, as his Instagram stories from Thursday would indicate. "I don't know what the fuck is going on with hip-hop, with rap," East tells his audience. "I ain't no hater, man, but that shit is wack with a cape on it." East is known mostly for his sharp bars and quick wit, like on "Phone Jumpin," so it makes sense that he might not appreciate more relaxed or viral incarnations of classic rap styles.

None


The internet better saddle up, though, since it seems like the memes and clapbacks are only just beginning.

Ellie Goulding’s 'Sixteen' Is an Adolescent Anthemhttp://www.8617965.com/ellie-goulding-sixteen-video-2635002360.html

Contrary to how fans feel, Ellie Goulding's new song, "Sixteen," is not about how many years it's been since she last dropped an album, but rest assured that with a hit like this, we can only hope a new record is on its way.

None


"Sixteen" is a shout out to the fast love of young hearts, with references to MSN and the nearly constant urge to run away at an age ripe with new energy and motivation. Bubbling chords and ambient, spacey pre-choruses fill the song with all of the anxiety and excitement of growing up, growing out of the old, and growing into the new. Goulding sings majestically bar-by-bar, reminiscing and asking "Can I wear your t-shirt/ And sleep on you/ While I dream of all the good times?" The chorus breaks in, delivering a classic dance-pop breakdown of spliced and distorted vocals interspersed with hollow claps and bright keystrokes.

None

None


The song was co-written by Goulding herself, along with Raye and FRED, and is about "her youth as a rebellious teenager." Of the song, she emphasizes the importance and lasting impact her sixteenth year had on her life. "That age was such a pivotal year for me in many ways and this song is so close to my heart," she said in a press release. "It takes me back to the reckless days of being a teenager and I hope it reminds us all about the innocence of youth."

None


The video acts like a time machine as well. Goulding and a friend reflect solemnly in a convertible, while footage of young schoolgirls is spliced between the shots. The story that plays out is one of youthful abandon; the teens steal a bottle of liquor, climb transmission towers, play arcade games, and get tattoos. One might be led to believe that the footage of the young girls is supposed to act as snippets of Goulding's memory, but it's revealed at the end that the girls simply have parallel storylines. The girls pass Goulding's convertible in the end, and she looks on approvingly, nostalgic for the years past.

None


Youthful in not only theming, but production, "Sixteen" is not just about a pivotal moment for Goulding — the song itself is pivotal. Hot off the release of her slow ballad, "Flux," her newest single marks a return to the dance-pop world that she first entered years ago, armed with hits. Not only that, but it's being released the same week as one of her biggest announcements in recent years: she'll have an original track on For The Throne - Music Inspired by the HBO Series in honor of the final season of Game of Thrones.

None


While there's no news yet on any of the song's details, or whether or not both of her singles will be a part of the a new solo album, one thing's for sure: she's back and she's got bops.

The Millionaires Walked So Kesha Could Runhttp://www.8617965.com/millionaires-kesha-myspace-2634994820.html

When Melissa Marie first heard Kesha's debut single "Tik Tok," she thought it was her own voice. The squeaky slur of "wake up in the morning feelin' like P Diddy," the trashy lyrics about brushing her teeth with Jack Daniels, the way Kesha moved between speaking and speak-singing like a hangover prevented her from giving more — it'd all become Melissa's signature as part of her three-girl Myspace band Millionaires. Only now that model was being blasted through Top 40 radio, and would eventually catapult Kesha to global pop star status.

None


"I got messages from people in my high school saying, 'You're on the radio!' And I was like, 'That's fucking not us,'" Melissa says. "I remember being so pissed off. I thought it was myself singing, it was that close."

None


In the context of 2009 Myspace, the biggest social media platform at the time, the Millionaires had become notorious. Melissa, sister Allison Greene and their close friend Dani Artaud were all internet-famous with hundreds of thousands of combined "friends" (this was before followers), and they joined forces to make an electro-pop trio that began as a joke, but became serious by demand. The earnest emo nerds, screamo misogynists, and leftover indie-rock snobs of Myspace all loved to hate the Millionaires, yet the girls' tracks consistently landed in Myspace Music's top charts. Constant criticism fueled epic numbers online, and so the Millionaires became an early product of the same system of polarizing popularity that fueled the careers of stars like Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.

None

None


It was rumored that among the Millionaires' listeners was producer Dr. Luke, who is credited for helping develop Kesha's initial look and sound (and accused of abusing her throughout their professional partnership). "We worked with producers in the [music] industry, so we heard all the gossip," Melissa says, claiming that "Dr. Luke had admitted to someone that he stole our whole persona." It makes sense: mainstream radio of that era was still dominated by the likes of high-fashion auteur Lady Gaga and textbook hitmaker Britney Spears, but the party girl image — messy, low-brow, relatable — had yet to be tapped into. So if the Millionaires could independently cultivate a fanbase for their sex positive, drunken bops, imagine what someone could achieve with a major label's support.

None


"That should've been us," Melissa says, "and they gave it to [Kesha]. Once I saw her doing our thing — and even Katy Perry was doing the same, just a cleaner version — it was like, Damn, why did they choose those other girls and not the Millionaires? Was it because we were scene and sorta goth-y? It was disappointing, definitely, but that made us try harder — it fueled our fire."

---

None


The Millionaires started in late 2007 with a Mac desktop, Garageband, and plenty of Smirnoff Ice (they were all under 21). "We went to a Catholic high school [in California], and my mom had bought us the Mac for Christmas to use for school," Melissa says. "One day we all made a song randomly — drunk, wasted — just screaming and yelling at the computer to record on Garageband." That belligerent recording became "I Like Money," the first official Millionaires demo that they'd later upload to Myspace. Using pre-made Garageband beats, the debut effort knowingly lacked in production value, but the girls' lyrical wit made up for its DIY sound. The verses were biting ("High heels, makeup, fake eyelashes/ Look at you, you're so damn plastic"), and the hook was addictive ("Look over here, and let me see that body rock").

None


None


None


"The lyrics were easy for us," Melissa says. "They came naturally. You didn't want to get in a fight with us because we were all really good with our words. We could've been wrong, but with all the hate, we were so quick to make someone feel stupid for talking shit."

None


The Millionaires' early bedroom sessions continued with a lineup of demos that solidified their smart, raunchy approach to making hilarious electro-pop. "In My Bed" saw the trio demanding a boy hop in their bed: "I know you must be shy because I'm just so hot/ But if you will just try, I know you'll hit the spot." On "Hey Rich Boy," the Millionaires offered a sugar baby anthem before 'sugar baby' was a term: "You can tell he's drippin' dollars, so of course I have to holler." They made a track called "Hoe Down," packed with banjos and drags, but the release of "Alcohol" marked when the Millionaires really hit their stride. It became the band's mission statement, with a chorus that everyone on Myspace knew the words to: "Let's get fucked up! Gimme that Alcohol (A-L-C-O-H-O-L)."

None


When the Millionaires uploaded these rough tracks to Myspace, they quickly caught fire, cultivating millions of streams. "No one realized that Myspace was such a great promotional tool at the time," Melissa says. "This was before people really caught on to social media being free publicity." The group almost immediately shifted from being a silly side project into a pursuit that felt like it could become something big. "It happened really fast," she says. "Because our first song did so well and it was so easy to make, we realized we were able to make a lot of songs. And when we realized people wanted us to perform, that's when we had to get a DJ."


None


They enlisted the help of DJ Hyphy Crunk, who was a friend of Melissa's and a local Los Angeles promoter at the time. "He would let us into clubs, and he was one of the only DJs I knew," Melissa says, recounting their simple, fast solutions to seem more legit to fans. "Hyphy Crunk, spin that shit," became a recognizable sample across Millionaires' early music, and he'd spin their tracks at live shows. "All three of us [in the Millionaires] were classically trained ballet dancers, so that's how we clicked really well [on stage]. A lot of bands, and especially scene kids as you can imagine back then, were super shy but we were the opposite. We loved the stage, and we were drinkers and partiers, so it fit."

None


Performing their songs live meant the Millionaires needed to rerecord everything they'd already created. "We weren't sound engineers," Melissa admits, so all their demos had been compressed without saving any stems. "We redid a bunch of songs because the recordings sounded so bad, and we only had the one tape. We had to, or else we couldn't perform them live. That's when we started taking it really seriously."

---

None


Melissa's high school sweetheart and prom date was Miley Cyrus' older brother Trace. He happened to be a guitarist for the pop-punk band best known for its breakthrough hit "Shake It," Metro Station, which played an indirect role the Millionaires' success. Keyboardist Blake Healy's roommate, Mark Maxwell, was a burgeoning producer and eager to work closely on developing a music project. Having met Melissa through Metro Station, he remixed two of the Millionaires' early demos, and ended up completely transforming their discography.


None


"When Blake took off with Metro Station, Mark had a feeling of being left out of the action," Melissa says, "and I think he saw an opportunity in us to achieve the same." The producer helped develop the Millionaires' sound into a much fuller fusion of wonky electro synths with radio-pop sensibility. This ultimately led to their first proper release, the five-track Bling Bling Bling! EP, released in 2007. The cover art featured all three girls in American Apparel bikini tops and wearing thick, charcoal eyeliner, surrounded by stacks of hundred dollar bills.

None


Metro Station was then working with Crush Management, the team responsible for shaping the success of still-massive bands like Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco. "We sought out legit management because we had this one lady who really fucked us over," Dani says. "[Crush] wanted to work with us, and they flew us out to NYC to record more music." With celebrities like Brendon Urie and Pete Wentz under their wing, Crush had the power and momentum to make Melissa, Allison and Dani superstars.

None


Around this time, the band was invited to perform live on TRL's "On the Radar" — easily their biggest opportunity to date, and a chance to get their music legitimized outside of Myspace. "We randomly got an email [from TRL], and started freaking out," Melissa says. "They made us fly ourselves out, and my mom went into her savings to send all three of us. It was during our first week of tour; I remember we had to play two shows in LA, and then go to NYC three days later. We flew overnight, got to New York at 6 AM, and had to go straight to filming. I'd lost my voice."

None


None


The girls decided to perform a track called "I Move It," which was their safest lyrically but still overflowing with profanities. "[MTV was] so upset about the song, because they give you one time to practice and we all cussed," Melissa laughs, remembering that producers threatened to cut the performance altogether if they didn't clean it up. "We had to change the lyrics, and we were so stressed," Dani says. "Because if you accidentally slip up, there's hell to pay." Somehow they all managed, and made their mainstream TV debut "looking trashy in tour clothes," with teased jet-black hair and bracelets stacked up their arms, all gifted by fans at different shows. "The minute we did TRL, I think that made [the band] seem really real to us and a lot of people," Dani says.

It also opened up them to a whole new avenue of music-making; the Millionaires were tapped to create theme songs for MTV's hit shows A Double Shot at Love with the Ikki twins and Teen Cribs, and later invited to cover Chic's 1978 hit "Le Freak" for the MTV film Turn the Beat Around. Many of the the girls' existing tracks were also used for the network's shows, including "Alcohol" on Skins. Their quick, rebellious wit was perfect for reality TV's debauchery, and the lyrics immediate enough to have impact in only a few, short seconds of play.

Building upon this organic momentum, their Just Got Paid, Let's Get Laid EP (off Decaydance Records), showed signs that the Millionaires could become America's next big girl group. They strategically included their biggest tracks, "Alcohol" and "I Like Money," and unveiled several new songs written after that first boozy but brilliant recording session. "Talk Shit" was an aggressive message to the haters, staking their ground with fists ready to fight: "Money, diamonds, gold and ice/ Yeah, talk shit you'll pay the price/ Shut up cunt, I'll cut your tongue/ Back down, bitch, you're fucking done." On "I Move It," the Millionaires continued carving out space as DGAF sex symbols, while the title track was a massive party bus banger that poked fun at the criticism they received online: "We live the life you wish, bitch don't say shit/ No talent, just lucky, but they still wanna fuck me."


None


In their "Just Got Paid, Let's Get Laid" video, the Millionaires featured a girl dressed up as fellow Myspace scene queen Audrey Kitching, who'd previously insulted the bands' music online. Twirling her pastel pink hair with a septum piercing and matching moles, Kitching's look-alike said the Millionaires were "like totally ruining music." The real Kitching eventually addressed the mockery on Twitter: "I'm embarrassed for you guys," she wrote. "Getting '****** up'? Degrading to all girls" — a criticism that would erupt in backlash today. Ever ahead of their time, the Millionaires couldn't care less as they walked men on leashes, feeding them bowls of champagne like thirsty kittens and tossing cash at half-naked strippers in the video. "You think you'll get famous taking pictures for free? Think again, bitch, maybe you should do it like me," growled Dani on the track.

Being an A-List Myspace group and working with Crush Management, the Millionaires became closely associated with all the emo bands dominating music at the time. They were the Paris, Nicky and Nicole of scene culture, and therefore joining Warped Tour seemed unavoidable to keep the band's momentum going. Consistent with punk's historic misogyny, the summer-long festival was always stacked with male musicians, putting the Millionaires in front of rockist crowds that vocally — and sometimes violently — hated their music.

None


They shared a tour bus with a group called Brokencyde, which incorporated hip-hop beats with screamo vocals and was similarly loathed by the Warped Tour audience for the ways they modernized punk music. On the first day of tour, Melissa says someone threw an entire water bottle of cum on Brokencyde's brand new stage backdrop, completely destroying it. "I remember joking that Target should sponsor us and put their logo on our bus, so people could throw stuff at that instead," she says. "No one else would tour with us, it was so dangerous. Jeffree [Star] had his own bus for that reason too, because he didn't trust anybody. It was like lunchtime in high school: [the Millionaires], Brokencyde and Jeffree all sitting at a table. It got to a point where no one would talk to us."

None


"Looking back now, what we were doing was really feminist and badass."

None


Throughout the summer, the Millionaires were forced to move stages several times because the bands before them would rile up the audience by openly insulting the trio. "We were always sandwiched between the two hardest, heavy metal bands because of the layouts of the stages," Melissa says. "That was really dangerous cause people in the audience would throw stuff." Dani remembers being hit in the head with shoes, water bottles and full bags of fruit; Melissa says she was once sexually violated. "People couldn't handle us, especially men," Dani says. "Our sets would infuriate them." As the Millionaires rapped about hooking up and downing shots, they did full choreography, sometimes simulating sex acts with each other. It was a completely different vibe and message from the ferocious, guitar-driven bands that they performed alongside.

None


At one Tennessee Warped Tour date, the Millionaires were booked to perform with A Day To Remember, a band whose sound was critically referred to as "pop-mosh." The girls begged not to do it ("They're going to eat us alive"), but were forced into playing the show by management. As expected, the response to their music was riotous: dollar bills were tossed about as if they were strippers, girlfriends in the crowd didn't like that their boyfriends were watching ("that was always a big issue for us"), and insults were freely flung at the stage. "They had to stop our set because it was getting so crazy," Dani says. "Even the sound guy was talking shit to us. I remember yelling at this guy, who was calling us 'sluts.' It was really intense, and we were always just trying to have fun and make fun songs. Looking back now, what we were doing was really feminist and badass."

None


None


The musical landscape at the time was overwhelmingly patriarchal, with all-male (and usually all-white) bands taking up the most space: All Time Low, Forever the Sickest Kids, We The Kings, The Maine, Cartel, Mayday Parade, The Cab, Cute Is What We Aim For, Boys Like Girls... the list is endless, meaning the majority of lyrics were penned through a male gaze: melodramatic love songs written about women, by men. While A Day To Remember, for example, was singing earnestly about romance and, in many cases, monogamy ("I just feel complete when you're by my side"), the Millionaires were destroying the standard by independently owning their sexuality, batting men around like toys, and setting it all to trashy club beats: "In the Millionaire world shit's turned around/ It's the boys that drop their knees to the ground," they declare on "Just Got Paid, Let's Get Laid" — a much-needed role reversal in the age of emo masculinity.

When the Millionaires got offered to sign to UK record label B-Unique in 2009, it was both the height of the band's career and the final nail in its coffin. They were slated to release a debut, full-length studio album, complete with new material that would push them further into the world of more accessible dance-pop. In a feature on The Guardian's "New Band of the Week," the UK publication profiled the Millionaires and asked the question, "Trash-pop or pop that's trash?" The hate the group experienced on and offline was reaching new, unbearable extremes — especially for Dani, who remembers battling an ongoing cocktail of depression, mental breakdowns and frequent panic attacks.

"It was hard on me in particular," Dani says. "I didn't realize at the time how much it was affecting me. I didn't know what the term 'empath' was, but now I do and I realize I'm totally one. Negative energies affect me in a crazy way, so it was really difficult being on stage." She also didn't want to stay in the UK, arguing that the people who booked the group's shows consistently put them in "weird situations where the audience wasn't receptive. They didn't know exactly where to put us or what to do with us."

None


So Dani decided to quit the band for good and return to the US. "It was so hard being away from home," she admits. This, however, meant the Millionaires lost their UK record deal and had to scrap their full-length project as the original trio. "I was happy to come back to the US, because things were not going well [overseas]," Dani says. "We were all trying to make it work, but I was like, I can't go back on stage. It was too much for me; I was relieved to not go back, but at the same time it was sad. There were a lot of fun times, and [Melissa and Allison] were like sisters to me. It took a while to come to terms with everything, but I think it was best for me at the time."


None


Shortly after Dani's announcement in 2010, Melissa and Allison released their Cash Only EP as the Millionaires, which featured some of the group's strongest, most sexual work to date. It offered five new songs, many of which the girls recorded in New York City while they were still together. All three sang more than ever on the project, attempting to compete with their peers in a post-Kesha pop landscape.

None


"Middle finger in the air if you're pussy's tight," Melissa and Allison demanded on track one, "Party Like a Millionaire" — the first Millionaires track without Dani's involvement. On "Prom Dress," recorded before her departure, the girls took on the challenge of writing a high school party bop, complete with cheerleader cries and an explosive power-pop chorus: "Get me off like a prom dress/ I can feel you deep inside," they sang in unison. "Take Your Shirt Off" continued in this playfully erotic vein, while "Microphone" was their attempt at reclaiming the groupie narrative: "After the show/ No one will ever know/ I want to touch your microphone."

None


Nothing was as promising as "Stay the Night," a single that had just enough sex appeal to feel like they weren't selling out, while still leaning into a safer, more radio-friendly lane. With retro guitar-pop production, the Millionaires' lyrics were PG-13, if not intentionally innocent: "Let's get naughty, cause I want you to stay the night," they sang on the chorus — a bright, bubbly climax that could've easily passed the standards of TRL's buttoned-up producers a few years prior. In the music video, the girls choose three lovers from a house full of men, handing the chosen ones a message in a bottle that read, "Stay the night with me."


None


"I love 'Stay the Night,'" Melissa says. "That one was kind of cleaner for us, but we really wanted to go that route. We recorded it in Europe, and it was going to do really well there."

None


The scrapped full-length album from Melissa, Allison and Dani meant losing a sea of impeccable, unreleased tracks that'd been circulating online. "Up in My Bubble" was a perfectly bitchy bop, featuring vocals by hitmaker Sarah Hudson (of Ultraviolet Sound); "Painted Whore" took shots at girls in too much makeup ("put more on you fuckin' clown"); Belinda Carlisle's "Heaven Is a Place on Earth" got sampled on "The One" — a tender track about true love and dependency, much like another slept-on standout, "Martinis and Mixed Feelings." While they never saw a proper release, all these songs exist today as lo-fi rips on YouTube and Soundcloud pages curated by dedicated fans who recognize the Millionaires as internet relics demanding preservation.

None


Once Dani left, Melissa says she and Allison were able to focus more on their potential as sisters, and continued forward with the Millionaires, now a two-person band. "We just decided to move on," she says, admittedly writing a Dani takedown called "Not Everyone Is a Millionaire," and then shelving it ("It was too mean.") The pair worked hard to keep up with music trends in order to be taken seriously. "The 'Kesha thing' was so popular, and we felt we could still compete with that as a duo. We were trying to find our own way in, and started to pull from our Asian [heritage]. Still to this day, the only [Asian-American] group that ever made it to Billboard was Far East Movement [of 'Like a G6' fame]."

Their 2012 single, "Drinks On Me," attempted to build upon the success of "Alcohol" by adding trendy, EDM motifs and sounds to their original party animal formula: "Give me that Andre/ 4 Loko erday / Give me that UV/ Cheap alcohol, please." This led to Melissa and Allison's debut mixtape Your Girl Does Party the same year — a 16-track effort stacked with cameos from hip-hop artists including Kreayshawn,Trina and Shanell — as well as their official full-length album, Tonight, in 2013.

While their tipsy, carefree attitude was disruptive in 2007, it'd become commonplace five years later. Between "Crazy Kids" and "C'Mon," any song off Kesha's Warrior could've easily been a Millionaires track; "Bass Down Low," DEV's The Cataracts-assisted hit sounded like a major label version of anything off Just Got Paid, Let's Get Laid. The Guardian had previously referred to the Millionaires as "Kesha to the max," when at least chronologically, it was the other way around.


None


Meanwhile, Dani began slowly stepping back into music through a collaborative project with Asia Whiteacre, who's now signed to Warner Chappell and notably co-wrote Hailee Steinfeld's Zedd-produced smash "Starving." Dani and Asia's indie band, Mr. Downstairs, was starkly different from the Millionaires, with completely sung-through, self-serious songs, more personal subject matter and guitar-led, bedroom-pop production. The duo acquired a small but engaged following and created a few music videos to cultish acclaim. They even dropped a 2012 EP called Superhero Heart, but the timing wasn't right for them to keep things going.

None


"I didn't have the resources," Dani says. "At the time, I was moving out on my own. We were paying for a practice space, but neither of us could afford it. We didn't have a manager anymore, so I was like, Shit, I don't know what to do."

None


She adds, "People still ask me, 'What ever happened to Mr. Downstairs?'" But all that is in the past, as now she's focused on an entirely new project she created with a clear head, fresh sound and newfound independence. SnowBlood is Dani's first solo effort, which she's been quietly developing for years in California. She released her self-titled album as SnowBlood in 2017, and dropped a spacey, electro-pop cover of Bananarama's "Venus" last year. This summer, she'll be going on tour in support of Mystery Skulls — her first time ever performing a full set alone. "Somebody the other day was sending me videos of Millionaires on Warped Tour," Dani says, "And that was literally 10 years ago. So 10 years later, I'm finally playing as a solo artist. I'm so stoked."

Capitalizing on her understanding of the internet, Melissa — now based in Arizona — has become something of a social media expert in the cannabis industry. "I know what works and I know what sells," she says. "Even if don't know what the product is, I know how to sell it. I already know how to sell a band, because [the Millionaires] always toured with excellent musicians. That's where a lot of the hate came from — the fact that were were screaming at computers, and still able to be successful."

None


She and Allison have continued to work together, starring briefly on the Oxygen network's unscripted Bad Girls Club and making appearances at nostalgia-fueled emo-themed parties. Melissa's been married (and divorced), while Allison is settling into life as a newlywed with her partner of 10 years. Their lives have slowed down, but their legacies live on: "Still to this day, if I go into a Hot Topic or a grocery store, people will still see me as a Millionaire," Melissa says — a testament to the cultural impact of a band whose star shined bright, despite never reaching supernova.

Notre Dame and the Racial Bias of Charitable Givinghttp://www.8617965.com/notre-dame-donations-louisiana-churches-2634993089.html

800-year-old Notre Dame Cathedral fell amidst large and uncontrollable flames, the entire world mourned. No one could believe that one of the most famous sites in the world would be in jeopardy of being burned to ashes on an otherwise regular Tuesday afternoon. We weren't sure if the descriptions of Notre Dame would now be confined to those of Victor Hugo, Sigmund Freud, or our personal and collective memories. What would happen to the artwork, the artifacts, or the iconic stained glass rose window? Would Paris, still reeling from the 2015 terror attacks that killed 130 people — the deadliest since World War II — be the same again?

None


Miraculously, Parisian firefighters saved many of the prized artifacts artworks and relics housed in the church, including what some believe to be the Crown of Thorns worn by Jesus — and they only had 66 minutes to do so. But nevertheless, Notre Dame needed to be restored as soon as possible. Approximately thirteen million people a year visit Notre Dame, and therefore its damage is both a cultural and financial blow to French tourism. In less than 72 hours, France's three richest families, including the Pinaults, the Arnaults and the Bettencourt Meyers pledged $650 million for its restoration.

None


This goodwill of international outpouring would have been astounding, if the news had not been embittered by the fact that three historically Black churches were burned in a southern Louisiana parish in a suspected hate crime over a 10 day period in March, to which initially very little mainstream media attention was paid. The overlap in burning churches—one grown out of racial hatred and the other an accident — and the quick attention and giving to the latter reopened a deeply entrenched colonial wound, reminding us once again the world is less sympathetic to Black people and our institutions.

Yes, Notre Dame is a world famous site and it generates millions for France. No, millions of people do not travel to Opelousas in St. Landry Parish to snap selfies and attend the services at Greater Union Baptist, St. Mary Baptist, and Mount Pleasant. But these churches are still sacred. Even as donations pour in to Notre Dame, the French government body created a fundraising campaign to accrue more money for its restoration. According to Krupali Krusche, Associate Dean at the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture and expert on historical preservation, the nearly $800 million from donations would provide for a "good" preservation while an expert one could potentially demand a billion dollars.

None


Just yesterday, April 17, the New York Post reported that the pledges from companies such as Apple and magnates from L'Oreal, Chanel, and Dior, alongside Catholics and those around the world have led to the amount of money rising to $995 million. Why then does the French government still have their fundraising campaign live? France is one of the world's largest economies with a nominal GDP of over 2.5 trillion dollars. The Vatican, which bankers estimate to be worth somewhere between 10 to 15 billion dollars, also agreed to help with the efforts.

Online, many pointed out that France received compensation for the Haitian revolution: in order for Haiti, a former French colony, to maintain its independence and freedom from slavery, its people had to pay France what would be worth $21 billion back in 1825. No standing French president has opened up the possibility to repay Haiti for this injustice. While France remains wealthy, Haiti remains the poorest country in the Western hemisphere.

None


The three historically Black churches that burned in Louisiana (another formerly French territory) were almost eclipsed by the news of Notre Dame. President Trump gave his condolences to Macron and offered help to restore Notre Dame yet has not made one public announcement about the hate crimes brewing in Opelousas. Given that he rose to power by capitalizing on the fears and racial animus of white Americans, his silence is unsurprising, but the optics are still damning and painful.

President Macron also hasn't given any condolences to the historic churches that burned in Louisiana. Like Notre Dame, those three churches were also sacred places full of collective memory. Much of their history was lost, including a sixty-year-old Bible and "handwritten sermons, financial records, and documents" that are well over 100 years old. Much African American history has been passed down from generation to generation through oral histories and storytelling; any documentation of such a vulnerable yet surviving people of our society is important to maintain. Right there in Opelousas, those archives have been scorched — a void in our historical memory is now in its place.

None


Fortunately, donations of well over a million dollars have been reached for the historic Black churches. Many outlets have reported that the Notre Dame Cathedral burning inspired the spike in fundraising. However, these church burnings happened several days prior to Notre Dame, the last one on April 4. France was able to receive close to a billion within three days. St. Landry Parish received a .001% of that in two weeks. The disparity between who and what gets the most sympathy, media attention, and charitable giving is glaring.

None


Compounded with the lack of parallels between how one religious site takes precedence over another when its very existence is in jeopardy, the quickness with which a billion dollars can be raised sheds light on other issues: world hunger, insurmountable student loan debt, homelessness, food deserts. Currently in France, members of the Yellow Vest Movement are protesting against rising social and economic inequality. No one can tell any person who or where to spend their money, but the pattern of prioritizing Western art and architecture in predominantly white spaces with capital and sympathy is consistent.

None


Though the three Black churches in Louisiana are nowhere near as large as Notre Dame and therefore won't demand as much money for its restorative processes, the immediate worldwide response to support Notre Dame cathedral from laymen to heads of state, was like a roar against a whisper of the Louisiana church burnings. The cumulative benevolence carries a dark side, that Black history in public landscapes can be destroyed and close to forgotten. There needs to be a constant awareness of the racial bias towards who and what deserves our time, energy, and mourning and why these elements maintain a hierarchy in which white people and their institutions remain at top of the caste system.

Why Jason Momoa Shaved Off His Khal Drogo Beardhttp://www.8617965.com/jason-momoa-beard-climate-change-2634976715.html

Fans watched in shock as Jason Momoa shaved off his iconic beard in an Instagram video yesterday. Since 2012, the actor has sported his long facial tresses, which became his definitive look after playing Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones.

None


Momoa said he was inspired to take the step for purely environmental reasons: "It's time to make a change. A change for the better... for my kids, your kids, the world. Let's make a positive change for the health of our planet. Let's clean up our oceans, our land. Join me on this journey. Let's make the switch to infinitely recyclable aluminum. Water in cans, not plastic."

The video is promotion for a new line of recyclable canned water and sees the actor using a razor to shave while in the middle of a polluted desert in Jordan. He's later seen holding a small plastic bottle while confessing that he "hates going on planes," and that there's only one thing that can "really help our planet and save our planet, as long as we recycle... that's aluminum."


None


He further revealed he has created his own brand of aluminum cans filled with flat, sparkling and alkaline water. Although there's no confirmation of his exact role at the brand, the clip was produced by Ball Corporation.

According to National Geographic, if plastic consumption and pollution continues at its current pace, there will be 12 billion metric tons of plastic in landfills by 2050. United Nations cites that over one million marine birds and 100,000 marine animals are killed every year because of ingestion of plastic.

Rihanna Speaks on 'Guava Island' For the First Timehttp://www.8617965.com/rihanna-speaks-on-guava-island-2634983480.html

As you probably know, Donald Glover casually dropped his and Rihanna's mystery-shrouded mini-movie Guava Island right into the middle of the Coachella Chapchella frenzy this weekend.

None


In the Amazon Prime original (which was not a visual album, as some speculated), Rihanna plays across from Glover as the pragmatist to his idealist: they're a couple living on the fictional Guava Island, which Glover tries to save from capitalism by throwing a music festival. More or less. The reviews have been mixed, but nearly all cite Rihanna's contributions (or her limited opportunities reveal them).

Both artists were completely silent about the project right up until it dropped. Glover eventually announced last week his inaugural tweet (despite his silence, he has 2.4 million followers).

Apparently, the film was as fun to make as it looked. Rihanna spoke about Guava Island for the first time today, calling the response to the film "overwhelming" and thanking Glover (who she calls "a true gem to the culture") for "trusting" her with the role.

Guava Island is Rihanna's second major film, following her (also underutilized) performance Nine Ball in Ocean's Eight. As such, her fans have proposed she star in just about every upcoming film. But really, would it be so much to ask for a Game of Thrones cameo? Ed Sheeran got one.

Watch Ciara Teach Lisa Rinna How to Twerkhttp://www.8617965.com/ciara-lisa-rinna-wwhl-2634982630.html

On Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Ciara and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Lisa Rinna sat down to kiki about everything from Ciara's abstinence before her marriage to Seahawks player, Russell Wilson, to pure catty Vanderpump drama. The capstone of the episode and its after show, however, had nothing to do with the he-said-she-said chit-chat about the housewives franchise. The climax came when Rinna requested a one-on-one twerk sesh with Ciara.

Now, it is a known fact that Ciara has been popping it like a pro for well over a decade, all the way back to the "Goodies" days. Her level of movement mastery isn't something you can learn overnight, or in a minute-long segment in front of a live TV audience. Rinna's a determined professional, though, and was ready to put it all on the line to find out the secret to Ciara's legendary moves.


None


"We got to keep it cute," Ciara remarks about twerking in a dress before obliging to the free dance lesson. An ominous, royalty-free breathy beat plays on cue as the women stand up. It appears Rinna doesn't need much instruction, though; she's making it pop like she's ready to dance back-up in the "Level Up" video! Ciara just repeats "make it pop," over and over, and magically, Rinna does! "You can't move too much in the front area, you've got to isolate the booty," Ciara instructs.

None


Then, it was Rinna's turn to teach Ciara some moves. That's a tall order, considering Ciara is just about the most revered dancer in the industry, but Rinna wasn't about to back down from this challenge. She's survived a RHOBH reunion, after all. "I'm really into Fosse right now," Rinna says slyly, slinking back and forth through the clubhouse set.

None


"I don't know what we're doing right now, but I'm doing it!" Ciara says. Neither do we, but we love it nonetheless!

The Mueller Report Redactions Look Like Album Arthttp://www.8617965.com/mueller-report-redactions-band-art-2634985685.html

As of today, we're all free to read the Mueller report's findings about possible Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election. Well, parts of it, at least.

None


You will recall that special counsel Robert Mueller handed in his 400-page report detailing Trump's alleged collusion with Russia to sway the 2016 presidential election about a month ago, disappointing many by proclaiming that President Trump did not collude with Russia — or at least, that there exists insufficient evidence to legally suggest so. In the weeks since then, Justice Department officials have been combing through the lengthy document to redact any information too sensitive to be made public.

None


The redactions seem stupid, but I regret to announce that they also… look kind of cool. The blocks of gray are suitably gloomy for this particular political moment, and the text "Harm to Ongoing Matter" wouldn't look out of place on the cover of an independently released noise band EP. (Another good EP name would be "Obstruction of Justice," but Mueller apparently doesn't agree.)

None


Twitter is all over this, naturally. On an otherwise frustrating day, please enjoy our favorite reactions, below.

Kim Kardashian Explains Her and Kanye's Extremely Minimalist Sinkshttp://www.8617965.com/kim-kardashian-sinks-2634973947.html

One of the biggest revelations of Kim Kardashian's Vogue 73 Questions ft. Kanye (aside from her new legal career — congrats on the job offer!) were her and Kanye's intensely minimalist taste in architecture and home furnishings, in contrast to their maximalist personas.

None


Their all-beige and cream $60 million, 15,000-square-foot home was designed by Belgian architect Axel Vervoordt (which Kim nailed pronouncing in the interview, you go girl!) and contains about six pieces of beige furniture and four other possessions (the garage is filled with Yeezy sneaks, however).

Turns out, the sinks have a hidden slit for water and ever-so-slightly, slope down. "You can put it on as high-pressure as you want and no back-splash will come up" Kim demos.

None


They're also Kanye's special design (with help from Vervoordt's team). It took eight prototypes to figure out how to rid the pieces of those unsightly basins and obscure the drain. Also, the whole ceiling is a light-box, the bathtub fits all the kids (implying entire-family Kardashian-West baths take place? I don't have kids, is that a thing?) and the bathroom has its own patio deck in case you need to take a sunbath in between brushing your teeth and the shower.

None


Okay, we get the sinks. Can we get the backstory on the the headless greek sculpture in the living room?

In a three-way match made in heaven, Church is applying his punky, queer sensibility to the classic Repetto ballet flat in collaboration with Opening Ceremony. Launching today, the new shoe marries the designer's world of fine art with Opening Ceremony's eclectic spirit and Repetto's classic cool.

The Weeknd, SZA and Travis Scott Take on 'Game of Thrones'http://www.8617965.com/listen-weeknd-game-of-thrones-2634977608.html

Move over, Ed Sheeran. The Weeknd is the latest musician to pay musical tribute to Westeros, releasing a new track with SZA and Travis Scott that will feature on the upcoming album For the Throne: Music Inspired by 'Game of Thrones.' "Power is Power" combines fire, ice, and autotune. We love it!

None


HBO producers reportedly approached The Weeknd about recording a song for the tribute album, and he then roped in SZA and Scott. For the Throne is set to feature a bunch of obvious but also unexpected names. You've got The National, Mumford & Sons, and Muse's Matt Bellamy — very standard mountain scenery music — but also A$AP Rocky, Joey BadA$, Ty Dolla $ign, Ellie Goulding, and Maren Morris. Why not?

Happy Hoeing: It's National Send Nudes Dayhttp://www.8617965.com/nsfw-national-send-nudes-day-2634969772.html

There's been much dispute over which day is actually National Send Nudes Day. Is it in May? October? Realistically, every day is National Send Nudes Day in the age of the Internet. But according to trusted resource Urban Dictionary, today is the official one: April 18 — an annual hoe-liday that's been active since at least 2016, judging by Twitter search results. Seriously, though, who creates these holidays? Not that we mind.

None


National Send Nudes Day is quite beautifully defined by Urban Dictionary contributor Franco Aurelio as "the day you send nudes to someone you feel comfortable with," going on to mention the people can send nudes to "boyfriend, girlfriend, best friend, side hoe, or even someone you have a thing with." The example sentence shows that sending nudes can, in fact, "make someone's day." Cute!

Just remember one thing: consent and respect are the sexiest things of all.

None


So if you're sending and receiving nudes today, we hope you're doing so responsibly (Don't you dare use AirDrop). Here's what the internet is saying about this special day. Happy Hoeing!

The Cannes Lineup Includes 13 Female Filmmakershttp://www.8617965.com/cannes-2019-lineup-announce-2634973531.html

The 2019 Cannes Film Festival announced most of its lineup at a Paris press conference today, and dynamics have changed since last year. Twelve out of the 47 films announced are helmed by women, and four of those are up for the Palme d'Or. This meets a festival record set in 2011.

None


The press conference began with a tribute to pioneering feminist director Agnès Varda, so the effort to include more women was fitting — especially as Cannes received plenty of criticism last year for a male-dominated lineup. Only one woman — Jane Campion, for The Piano in 1993 — has ever picked up the Palme d'Or.

None

Also noticeable is the presence of more American directors than usual, although Quentin Tarantino won't be one of them. His upcoming feature Once Upon a Time in Hollywood likely won't be ready on time to premiere at Cannes, although it could be added at the last minute. It was also speculated that Greta Gerwig's Little Women would appear on the lineup, but that doesn't seem to be happening either. Jim Jarmusch's The Dead Don't Die will open the festival.


None


Other important news: Elton John will be there! He'll make an appearance to help promote the biopic Rocketman. It's also notable that Netflix won't show any films at Cannes, for the second year in a row. Which is a shame, because they've got some cool-sounding stuff in the works: Martin Scorsese's The Irishman, Steven Soderbergh's The Laundromat, Noah Baumbach's The King (a period drama starring Timothée Chalamet!?).

Childish Gambino's Coachella Pants Were Made in 5 Hourshttp://www.8617965.com/childish-gambino-christian-joy-coachella-2634871043.html

Weekend one of Coachella was huge for Childish Gambino, who finally unveiled his new 55-minute film, Guava Island, starring Rihanna, and later headlined the festival's opening night.

None


Related | 5 Performances That Won Coachella

None


Filmed in Cuba and inspired by the Brazilian movie City of God, Gambino's set carried a similarly tropical, breezy energy as his much-anticipated film. He had a full choir, rhythmic drummers, and performed the entire thing shirtless a la "This Is America." Fan favorites like "Late Night in Kauai" were included, as well as a cover of Gnarls Barkley's 2006 hit "Crazy," and Gambino reflected on his experience with death: "I lost my dad this year, we lost Nipsey, we lost Mac," he said.


None


Designer Christian Joy, who's created iconic Coachella looks for everyone from Karen O to Alabama Shake's Brittany Howard, was behind Gambino's simple pants. His minimal stage look was constructed in only 5 hours using materials from a nearby JOANN Fabric; the original pair she created was too stiff to move in, and Gambino's team last-minute requested an update after Coachella rehearsals.

None


Whether it's hand-cutting dozens of petals to create a bodysuit or using battery-operated fans from Amazon to inflate a dress, there's clearly no rule book for Coachella fashion. Below, Joy explains how Gambino's look came to fruition.

On Her Point-of-View:?


"My job is mainly to give the performer something they feel defines their performance and that they feel comfortable wearing. I always try to present looks that are graphic or colorful — something that feels joyful for both the performer and the audience. I try to keep the energy of the look upbeat, but also very defined. The look should become a part of the artist."

On Connecting With Childish Gambino:?


"I connected to Childish Gambino through my friend Ibra Ake. He brought me on to create the looks for the Pharos event in Joshua Tree a few years ago. Ibra already knew my work and I think he just felt that the energy and graphic nature of it would work"

None


On Creating the Coachella Pants:?


"The look ended up being very paired down. Originally, he and his management had asked for a look using 'anti-paparazzi' fabric, so I created a robe and trousers using material that was very bold and graphic. The pants ended up being a little difficult to move in, so they asked for a pair that were a bit more flexible because he dances a lot. We were in rehearsals in San Bernardino when I got the request so I had to run to a JOANN Fabric, buy a sewing machine and supplies and I ended up making a more simplified version of the pant in my hotel room in 5 hours. Fortunately, I had brought his pant pattern with me, so I was able to create them pretty quickly."

On Outfitting Childish Gambino's Entire Choir:?


"The choir's look had to reflect Donald's look as well as the stage itself, so we went for choir robes and then I made sashes using the same retro reflective material I had used on his pant in similar shapes"

These Australian Siblings Are Taking Over Electronichttp://www.8617965.com/lastlings-ive-got-you-2634902465.html

Australian brother-sister duo Josh and Amy Dowdle, aka Lastlings, may be relative newcomers to the indie electronic scene but they're already making waves. From supporting RüFüS DU SOL on tour to subsequently signing to the band's newly formed label, the duo's atmospheric brand of electro-pop has already begun to put them on everyone's radar.

None


Their new single, "I've Got You," is by far their most robust and polished to date. Featuring massive synths, growling basslines, and siren-like vocals, the song feels absolutely massive and paradoxically intimate at the same time. This track is evidence that the duo is continuing to grow more confident in their artistic voice with each subsequent release as they experiment with sound and lyrics.

None


Related | 5 Performances That Won Coachella

None


Meeting the duo in person at Coachella, it's hard to ignore their impeccably chiseled features that have landed them numerous modeling campaigns with the likes of Reebok, Black Milk, and Valley eyewear. But in passing around a bag of cookies and extolling the virtues of Nicolas Jaar, it becomes readily apparent that the young 19 and 25-year-old twosome is incredibly genuine with a bright-eyed enthusiasm for everything the musical world has to offer.

None


PAPER sat down with Lastlings ahead of the release of their new single "I've Got You," out now, to discuss the song's inspiration and what's next for them.


None


What was the inspiration behind the song?

Josh: It was very inspired by this song called "Bad Kingdom" [by Moderat], and it has a really big driving bass in it. We took a lot of elements from that and then adapted it to our sound. It was really hard but really cool, and Cassian then really brought that driving bass to come through. Cassian helped us produce on it, and then Amy came in and took the lead on vocals and the lyrics.

None


Amy: It's about caring for your loved ones, and making sure they're ok. I wrote it in school, and it's about this person that was in my grade, as well. I wanted to reach out to them and help them, but they kind of kept pushing me away.

None


J: We had the verses finished before, but not the chorus. We were in the studio with Cassian the first time we came to LA, and were trying to figure out a chorus so we hummed it instead. I think that's what happened. We were in another room just trying to figure out... how long were we in there for?

None


A: I don't know [Laughs]. I just remember sitting in this dark room.

None


J: We were so sick when we got to LA because we hadn't done a long flight like that in awhile. When we got here, we were just destroyed. It made all the sections difficult, but we pushed to finish the song.

None


How did Lastlings come to be?

A: It kind of just happened. When Josh was in high school his friends had a band. They would always play in the shed together and jam out. Usually I would play piano and sing to myself in my room. Josh was always really good at guitar; he always would be stuck in his room playing guitar.

None


J: Not anymore though, it's really just one of those things where you need to keep playing to get good. I forgot so much guitar. Amy is a classically trained pianist, and then I also started with piano and kind of quit halfway through. It was only in high school that I started to get back into music and guitar again. Then I was into Led Zepplin, Jimi Hendrix, and moved on to electronic and started producing. The first song we did together was this one we wrote on guitar, which is cool to see because it's really different to what we're doing now — just very drowned out, reverb-y, lo-fi kind of stuff. The new stuff sounds a bit cleaner.

None


A: Yeah, I think we've changed a bit musically. We're still learning.

None


J: Definitely had a lot of help, from friends around us, like the RüFüS [DU SOL] guys. Their feedback has been very important.

None


None


You're actually signed to their label, Rose Ave Records, how did you all initially link up?

J: We did a regional tour in Australia with them a long time ago, maybe like two years ago? Our managers were friends already and they were having chats; I think the music resonated with the guys. We became really good friends with them over the tour. There was talks of the label a long time ago, which we thought would be really cool, but we were not sure if it would actually happen. We all have a sound we're kind of striving for, which is really good.

None


You mentioned Moderat's "Bad Kingdom" earlier as an inspiration. What other artists do you draw inspiration from musically?

A: Yeah, Moderat, they're one of our favorites. RüFüS DU SOL is another one of the big ones.

None


J: It was really cool playing in their studio when we came for the first time. A lot of the stuff we were using is the same equipment they use on their record, as well. So we got to use the Prophet-5 [analogy synth] for the first time and were like, "Oh yeah! That's the secret!" Everyone's going to start buying a Prophet now. Cassian has one now, as well.

None


Outside of music you both do a fair bit of modeling too. How did you get into that?

J: We started modeling when we were a bit younger; we got scouted. It really goes hand in hand with our music now; we always direct our own shoots and press shots. I think the last kpress shots we did were Blade Runner-themed. We were working closely with this brand called Song for The Mute that's based in Sydney. We became really close with them, and they always dress us for our shows — just handmade and well sourced fabrics, really nice stuff.

None


What does the future look like for Lastlings?

J: I think what we're really excited about is pushing a different sound.

None


A: And releasing the album...

None


J: Yeah, we really want to release the album. We're working so hard on it. It just keeps changing and changing, so I feel like we're almost getting stuck in this loop where we're getting technically better and always want to go back and fix something. It's got like really big tracks on it, like "Deja Vu," and "I've Got You." We're really excited about it.

Future Lawyer Kim Kardashian Receives Her First Job Offerhttp://www.8617965.com/kim-kardashian-lawyer-job-2634966968.html

After acing her recent torts exam, Kim Kardashian has been offered a job with Robert Shapiro's law firm. Yes — Shapiro is the man portrayed, not exactly flatteringly, by John Travolta in 2016's American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson. He worked closely with Kardashian's father as part of Simpson's defense team, although arguably neither of them contributed all that much.

None


Shapiro told TMZ that the "door was open" at his firm if and when Kim passes the bar — she's planning to sit the notoriously tricky entrance exam in 2020. "I think she'll be a sensational lawyer," he told a reporter. "Look what she did with the President, she got someone right out of jail." Shapiro was referring to Kardashian's successful campaign to free non-violent offender Alice Marie Johnson — the 63-year-old had been put behind bars in 1996 for a drug crime.

TMZ asked Shapiro whether he thought Kardashian would be taken seriously by the legal community given her celebrity status, and he admitted she'd chosen a "difficult" path, especially as she's studying via correspondence instead of going to law school. As her many haters will be quick to point out, Kim never finished college, but it turns out this isn't technically a prerequisite. The state of California allows students to attain legal qualifications by apprenticing to practicing attorneys — she's enlisted two mentors, Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney, who supervise her studies for 18 hours each week.

None


"It's gonna be a very difficult and long process for her doing it the way she's doing it, I wish her the best of luck," Shapiro said. "She told me a year ago she was planning on doing this, so she's serious about it, and I hope she's successful." He then added that her dad's genes won't help her much, because "he didn't really practice law." Shady!

A Decade Later, The Jonas Brothers Will Return to SNLhttp://www.8617965.com/jonas-brothers-snl-2634964387.html

Ten seasons and ten years after their debut on Saturday Night Live, the Jonas Brothers announced yesterday that they will perform on the penultimate episode of the show's 44th season, with acting legend Emma Thompson hosting.

None


The band will follow up Shawn Mendes' May 4 performance, but hopefully strike boy band viral gold again, a la BTS' performance from the April 13 episode. The boy band craze is certainly coming back with a vengeance after a brief departure in a post-One Direction era of solo stars. It seems that BTS breaks records almost daily, and old band reunions are happening left and right. Thanks, Ariana!


None


If the Jonas Brothers' resurgence in popularity tells us anything, though, it's that fandemonium never really left us. The music video for their comeback single, "Sucker," has broken well over 100 million views since its late February debut, and their newest video for "Cool" is on track to do the same. While neither of the songs have exactly given us the feels over the days of "S.O.S" and "When You Look Me In The Eyes," the new bops have been foot-tapping anthems, more in line with their later work on "Lines, Vines, and Trying Times."

None


Fans are already demanding that the Joe, Kevin, and Nick appear in sketches as well, following their appearance in sketches from their 2009 guest spot and the appearance of One Direction in sketches years later.


None


There's no telling whether or not they'll actually appear in any bits, but all is usually revealed concerning these types of appearances come showtime. The band has two songs out currently, post-reunion, which sets them up for a perfect two-song set on SNL. Previously, in the show's 34th season, the brothers performed two songs off of their breakout album A Little Bit Longer, "Tonight" and "Video Girl." There's no announcement about plans to release a new song to gain pre-show buzz, but who knows? The Jonas' work in mysterious ways.

None


Before their big SNL return, you'll be able to catch them on May 1, performing at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

The Coachella Ferris Wheel Is the Hottest Hook-Up Spothttp://www.8617965.com/coachella-ferris-wheel-sex-2634912936.html

Coachella Weekend One may be over, but thanks to the ubiquity of smartphones, we're able to relive every goddamn moment — including the ones that weren't on the main bill.

None


First, came (lol, sorry) that viral video of two illicit dick-suckers having at it on the iconic Coachella ferris wheel — a remarkable event akin to spotting a shooting star. Albeit, in the middle of the day and something that probably won't get picked up by Nat Geo.

None


Naturally, amusement colored with slight concern was the predominant reaction to the video. But it also made for great retweet fodder, as evidenced by the dozens of viral jokes about ferris wheel blow jobs.

And for a while, that appeared to be the extreme extent of brazen, public sex acts on festival grounds. Well, until YourEDM managed to spot another video of a couple getting it on. Yep, on the ferris wheel.

Needless to say, we wouldn't advise trying out Coachella's hottest, new hook-up spot — despite the, uh, romantic views. After all, as Out's Rose Dommu points out, Coachella may be beefing up ferris wheel security for Weekend Two, and we wouldn't blame them.

Gypsy Rose Blanchard Is Asking Her Supporters For Helphttp://www.8617965.com/gypsy-rose-blanchard-letters-2634910907.html

Gypsy Rose Blanchard's story has touched many viewers and garnered her a contingent of vocal supporters — and now, she's asking them to help reduce her prison sentence.

The 27-year-old — whose mother, Dee Dee, believed Gypsy was terminally ill due to a rare disorder known as Munchausen-by-proxy — is in the process of serving a 10-year sentence for the second-degree murder of Dee Dee. As such, Gypsy's now asking people to write letters on her behalf petitioning for an early release.

None


Explaining that supporters can send letters to either the Missouri State Governor, Michael L. Parson and/or the Division of the Missouri State Board of Probation and Parole, Gypsy also provided an address to send them to. She is currently scheduled for a parole hearing in December 2021. Gypsy plans to marry her fiancé once she is released from prison.

Listen to Jasmine Infiniti's Exclusive Mix For Weed Rave 420http://www.8617965.com/weed-rave-420-mix-2634908479.html

Michelle Lhooq is, without a doubt, one of the best weed writers out there. In fact, girl has a weed bible (illustrated by the fabulous Thu Tran) on the way, and it's filled to brim with tips, tricks, and insights from some of the cannabis industry's top minds. But in addition to being an expert on all things weed, Michelle's also a pro-party thrower, so you better believe she's throwing a giant weed rave this weekend in NYC to celebrate the book's launch.

A follow-up to her LA Weed Rave, Michelle's inaugural NYC edition of the party will feature readings from herweed book, a bong-making competition, cannabis cooking class, as well as a panel on cannabis legalization in NYC (with a focus on criminal justice) moderated by Merry Jane's Zach Sokol. Not only that, but she's also managed to assemble a line-up of some of the city's best DJS, including Joey LaBeija, Gooddroid, Quest?onmarc, and Jasmine Infiniti — who also made us an exclusive warm-up mix for the function!

After all, it's 2019 and I still think about Michelle's legendary chicken shop rave — so you know this girl knows how to throw a stupidly fun party.

Boy George Interviews Jamie Hannah, His New Pop Prodigyhttp://www.8617965.com/boy-george-jamie-hannah-2634900340.html

As the brain behind some of music's biggest hits, it's fitting for Boy George to help groom the next generation of pop vocalists. Jamie Hannah, a 22-year-old UK singer-songwriter, is the newest signee to George's namesake label, and debuted this February with his opera-infused single "Sound of My Youth."

None


Laced with homages to classical music, Hannah's breakout track is still radio-ready, with fresh, electronic beats and impeccable vocals. "This is the sound of my youth," his voice flutters above production by Benny D, who's worked with everyone from Kylie Minogue to Stormzy.

None


Today, PAPER premieres Hannah's official "Sound of My Youth" music video, alongside a conversation between him and his iconic mentor. Check it out, below.


None


Boy George: As a young British singer-songwriter, you are a unique blend of pop and classical music. How do you fuse the two genres together?

Jamie Hannah: You know, it's not so strange. Classical music was the popular music of its time. Classical music forms my roots — that's how I was trained, but pop is my love. Instrumentally, I am drawn to the beauty of orchestral instruments, but then I pair it with a distinct electro-synth pop sound. For example, having suspensions creates dissonance in the strings to portray pain. I also try and incorporate intricate vocal trills and ornamentation — associated with one of my favorite composers, G.F. Handel, in some of the arias in his operas.

None


My most-liked time in the studio is when I can play around with harmonies; having studied traditional Bach's Chorales, this comes naturally. Frequently I have to tell myself that "less is sometimes more."

None


Both genres have been integral in my musical studies and having the foundation of a classical background has given me the knowledge to delve into new ways of finding a unique pop sound, merging what I think are the best bits from both genres.

Boy George: Benny (your producer) and I are old friends. We had been working together and he suggested you would work well on some of the tracks we wrote. What did you think about that?

Jamie Hannah: Thank you. Working on music that you and Benny had put together was such an honor. I was so excited, but also apprehensive that I could do your compositions justice. I immediately connected with your work and would like to think I'd put my own touches to it.

None


Boy George: How do you feel your music is connecting with your age group?

Jamie Hannah: I've only just released one of my songs so far. However, already I am overwhelmed with the positive response it has received across all age groups. I did not initially target a specific demographic and I certainly don't want to pigeonhole myself. My music is where I am at the moment — it is the real me. I'm excited to get my next single out and continue to connect some more with my fans. I am on tour at the moment and it is great to meet people and hear firsthand what they think of my music.

None


None


Boy George: Tell us about your experience of the "Sound of My Youth" video. What was the process of filming?

Jamie Hannah: The process of planning, filming, and editing was all very surreal, as it was the first time for me. I did two videos for "Sound of My Youth," both completely different with juxtaposing colors, as they had different intentions. For the acoustic video I wanted to keep it very organic and naked, keeping the visual spacious and ethereal to match the vocals. It was filmed with one camera, with my classically trained friends accompanying. It was kind of you to post it on your socials.

None


The official music, however, was a significantly bigger project. I collaborated with a whole bunch of creatives — friends, colleagues, dancers, stylists — throwing myself in the deep end alongside great people at the top of their game, which in turn led to a warm and friendly energy on set. It's a video produced by millennials, for millennials. A special thank you to the director Modu Sesay who, despite my 393 edits allowed me to create a visual, my perfectionist self is so proud of. Also Jade Adeyemi, the artistic director and Lizzie and Richard of Hause of Hip Hop choreography team. It was my first time doing choreography, so I was a bit dubious but hey I got there in the end.

None


"Instrumentally, I am drawn to the beauty of orchestral instruments, but then I pair it with a distinct electro-synth pop sound."

None


Boy George: What do you think about releasing "House of Truth" as the next single?

Jamie Hannah: It's great, I think we both feel it is a hit song and I am so thrilled that it is coming out on your label. I loved the message in your song: truth. It is ambiguous — about being honest with yourself, coming out — with no elephant in the room, however it is also about the truth within yourself and truth within a relationship. It also has the most phenomenal gospel singers doing backing vocals.

None


Boy George: What's next for Jamie Hannah?

Jamie Hannah: So busy at the moment, I barely have time to sleep! We've been in the studio putting finishing touches to a few tracks for an EP. I'm currently on tour with Heather Small of M People around the UK. I have a few other tours in the pipeline to hit the US and UK later in the year. Maybe a few other secrets too...

The Designer Behind Tierra Whack's Inflatable Coachella Dresshttp://www.8617965.com/la-roxx-tierra-whack-jaden-smith-rosalia-2634827480.html

Coachella has become as much a celebration of fashion as music, from all the unruly festival-goer style to performers' custom stage outfits.

None


Beyond the sea of Louis Vuitton, this year saw a significant crop of artists wearing designs by Sharon Rahim of the family business LA Roxx. What began as a mid-eighties leather brand, outfitting everyone from Michael Jackson to Guns N' Roses, has transformed into the go-to source of custom performance looks for today's stars like Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga and Beyoncé. And at Coachella 2019, LA Roxx's legacy continued strong.

LA Roxx was behind rapper Tierra Whack's inflatable highlighter yellow dress, which blew up mid-performance like Violet Beauregard. This was easily Coachella's strangest look, and one that continued strongly in the vein of Whack World. The brand also outfitted Jaden Smith, who danced on top of a floating Tesla Model X in black, patchwork-printed joggers and a matching military vest. Rosalía's custom red PVC look by LA Roxx was a perfect pairing for the Spanish pop star, as well as Anderson .Paak's tropical shirt-shorts set.

None


"I believe that clothes have power. It allows you to express yourself in a way that you otherwise couldn't."

None


"I believe that clothes have power," Rahim told PAPER. "It allows you to express yourself in a way that you otherwise couldn't. My point of view as a designer consists of a couple things: The first is for the person wearing that specific look to feel like they are the center of the universe and to know that nobody else has anything like what they have. I want to instill a sense of confidence where they feel like they can take over the world. The second is for the person who is seeing this creation. I want them to discover something new the more they look at the piece. I want them to be confused, yet intrigued. My goal is to add depth and complexity, but in a very subtle way."

None


Below, Rahim breaks down all the LA Roxx looks worn at weekend one of Coachella 2019:

On Tierra Whack:


None


"We worked with Shirley Kurata who is Tierra Whack's stylist. Shirley came to me and had this idea of doing this piece that was inspired by a Japanese construction workwear vest that had an internal cooling fan. She wanted an element where the piece would inflate and create sculptural silhouettes throughout [Tierra's] performance. We brainstormed and discussed what would look the best in terms of fabric and color — how we could achieve this in a practical way and tested out some methods, and just went for it. It turned out so fucking rad. [It's powered by] battery-operated mini fans found on Amazon."

On Jaden Smith:


None


"Working with Jaden [Smith] and his team were great. We wanted the piece to look deconstructed — an homage to punk. I thought it was fitting since I think Jaden represents this new generation of young creatives where genres are blending. Hip-hop is maturing into a punk phase. It's akin to what we do here at LA Roxx in fusing and remixing elements from varied subcultures. I thought Jaden looked great on stage. [I'm] very proud of that moment."

On Rosalía:


None


"Rosalía's pieces were a result of a trip I took back with my wife in Kyoto. We came across these vintage painter pants, which provided us the inspiration to redesign the silhouette and apply PVC material which created a new holistic take on the silhouette. The volume of the pant leg really brings out the shape. It's great to see my travel inspiration on stage — a surreal feeling."

On?Anderson .Paak:


None


"With AP we worked closely with his stylist Jasmine Benjamin, and took AP's vibe and aesthetic and just built on it. He has such a big personality and presence on stage, so we wanted to create some custom prints for him that was complementary to his vibe."

5 Performances That Won Coachellahttp://www.8617965.com/blackpink-jbalvin-janelle-monae-coachella-2634716271.html

A rockist I had brunch with this weekend in Palm Springs took a sip of his double Jameson — arms crossed — and declared, "The year Coachella died is the year Paris Hilton first attended the festival."

None


The hotel heiress, who's an icon of unapologetic materialism, certainly embodies the larger-than-life, branded experience that is Coachella today. But I'd argue that she, along with the hundreds of A-listers who now annually descend on Indio, California, has helped transform the festival into a modern destination that breathes life into a struggling industry.

None


A music festival of this scale is nearly impossible without all the corporate sponsorships, the media frenzy, the aspirational parties, and selfies by the likes of Ms. Hilton. They're what make it manageable for hundreds of global artists spanning genres, from reggaeton to K-pop, to convene for three days in the desert. While it's not romantic, this is what allows fans to still indulge in the romance of music.

So if weekend one was any indicator of the state of Coachella in 2019, the decades-old fest is more alive than ever, putting music first with support from all the celebrity spectacle. Below are five acts that destroyed the rockist's cynicism with their weekend one sets.

BLACKPINK


None


After shattering a YouTube record with their "Kill This Love" music video, BLACKPINK continued to break records during Coachella 2019 as the first K-Pop girl group to perform at the festival. Jennie Kim, one fourth of the band, also performed her track "Solo," casually locking in her title as the first solo K-Pop artist to descend on the Cali fest. With all this hype, BLACKPINK inevitably attracted a massive crowd, and delivered spot on choreo to relentless bangers like "Ddu-Du Ddu-Du" and "Boombayah."

J Balvin


None


Colombian superstar J Balvin returned this year to Coachella after performing alongside Beyoncé during her iconic headlining set in 2018. With technicolor leopard-printed hair and a full stage created in collaboration with arts collective FriendsWithYou, the golden hour performance was a surreal, playful celebration of Reggaeton — and his fans loved every minute. Balvin brought out Rosalía and Sean Paul to perform, underlining the biggest year for Latin music at Coachella (S/O Bad Bunny).

Christine & the Queens


None


Next to some of her peers' massive sets, Christine & the Queens' stage was unassuming, which allowed her raw talent to shine alongside a troupe of modern dancers. "This is Chris," the French singer said, introducing a character that delivered a masculine, sexually charged performance against relentless smoke machines and dramatic fireworks. From "Comme Si" to "Doesn't Matter," Chris' songs are emotional and gleaming, and her interpretation of the tracks at Coachella — physical and earnest — proved she's one of contemporary pop's most arousing storytellers.

Gesaffelstein


None


From hitmaker Zedd to queer cult icon SOPHIE, electronic music had a major presence at Coachella 2019, but few acts managed to make as big of an impact as Gesaffelstein. The French producer, who wore a Tron-looking metal bodysuit to conceal his face, opened with his new Pharrell collaboration, "Blast Off," before breaking into a techno lineup that seemed to fill every inch of the Indio, California desert. The sounds were massive and monumental — especially those from 2013's Aleph — like alien machinery descending on (and destroying) Planet Earth.

Janelle Monáe


None


Now 10 years into her career, it's sometimes easy to forget Janelle Monáe's robust musical theater education. But the queer performer's Coachella set, which deserved to have a headlining slot, showcased every facet of her unmatched talent: the vocals, the dancing, the vision, the passion. Monáe delivered on all the fan favorites, including her Duran Lantink-designed vagina pants, and dropped in a few surprise guests (Lizzo, Tierra Whack). The finale song, "Tightrope" off 2010's The ArchAndroid, was stretched out for nearly 10 minutes with multiple endings and epic, powerhouse belts.

Kylie Jenner: Get Rich or Die Followinghttp://www.8617965.com/kylie-jenner-transformation-2629088275.html

Kylie Jenner knows we've all wondered out loud who her plastic surgeon is. She just doesn't care. Once one of the more unassuming members of America's most famous family, these days her arched eyebrows and permanently pouted lips — sculpted and painted according to the impossible ratios of beauty YouTube and augmented reality apps — transfix hundreds of millions of eager fans and are ubiquitous on every feed. The 21-year-old makeup mogul says her dramatic transformation (from private teenager to public businesswoman, from demure girl-next-door to bombshell) was a conscious one, and more considered than you might assume. She's happy to talk about it.

"People think I fully went under the knife and completely reconstructed my face, which is completely false," she explains to me over the phone, casually and with little prompting. "I'm terrified! I would never. They don't understand what good hair and makeup and, like, fillers, can really do." I'm eager to indulge in the fantasy that anyone can look like Kylie Jenner if they just watch enough tutorials about crease application, and tell her as much. She gently interrupts. "I mean, no," she says with a conspiratorial laugh. "It's fillers. I'm not denying that."

None


None


On Instagram, where she reigns supreme, Jenner comes across as coy. Her captions are minimal, her grid curated, her selfies serious. In conversation, though, she's surprisingly relaxed and generous and upfront. A cool girl with fillers in her face who is down for whatever. She's genuinely excited to discuss her formerly secret daughter Stormi, and says young motherhood has changed life entirely for the better. "It's genuinely what I wanted... to be a young mom," she says. "I thought, This I what I want to do, and if people accept it or don't accept it then I'm okay with every outcome."

None


Two days before our interview, she recalls, the 11-month-old took her first steps — with father Travis Scott present. Jenner gushes about him, too. He's a great dad, a "big kid," a fantastic partner. To put rumors to rest, they aren't married yet, or even engaged. Don't expect her to keep something like that a secret. When it happens, and she seems certain it will soon, "I'll let everybody know." With Kylie, you can usually expect fanfare. A few weeks after we speak, she throws an overtly aesthetic Astroworld-themed birthday celebration for Stormi, involving elaborate Instagrammable neon photo backdrops and custom merch in pop up stalls. Guests enter through the mouth of a giant balloon in the shape of her daughter's face. They eat fries from pink cartons covered in Louis Vuitton-Stormi monograms. DJ Khaled, in attendance, gifts one-year-old Stormi her very first Chanel bag.

None


"What I'm trying to say is I did have a platform, but none of my money is inherited."

None


Now that we've got the plastic surgery slash secret pregnancy talk out of the way, what Jenner really wants to discuss, with the authority of the eldest girl at the slumber party, is makeup. Its mysterious power. Makeup has made her unfathomably wealthy, and has given her purpose and identity outside of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians sphere. She's in awe of the famous makeup artists she is privileged to regularly work with and laments the fact she'll never be as good as they are, exuding way more modesty than is necessary — watch any of her "getting ready" tutorials and feel something at least proximate to awe. Even before it became her business, she explains, lipstick was her almost singular hobby, an "obsession" she didn't necessarily intend to monetize at first. Of the now-iconic lip kits that started it all, Jenner says she never did any consumer research, "wasn't educated on what the beauty business really was," and never even stopped to observe what the big brands were putting in drugstores. She simply "followed her heart" and invented the exact product she wanted to buy.

"I just knew for myself as a customer, like, why am I buying a lip liner and a different lipstick? I wanted it the same color, I wanted it to be easy," she recalls. "And I really spent every last dime that I had starting it, not even knowing if it would be successful."

None


In 2018, when Forbes predicted Jenner would be crowned America's youngest self-made billionaire within a year, the Internet understandably bristled. But while Jenner definitely exhibits the blithe financial attitude her detractors would expect ("I don't define myself by how much I have. I honestly don't wake up even thinking about it") she is able to acknowledge how certain Kardashian-related privileges gave Kylie Cosmetics an edge other fledgling beauty brands would kill for. "I had such a huge platform, I had so many followers already and I had so many people watching me," she admits. Still, she's eager to assert that "the self-made thing is true." Her parents "cut her off at the age of 15" and told her to start making her own way, and Jenner says that since then she hasn't received a single cent.

None


"My parents told me I needed to make my own money, it's time to learn how to save and spend your own money, stuff like that," she explains, taking her time to think through the statement. "What I'm trying to say is I did have a platform, but none of my money is inherited."

None


"Makeup is something that makes me feel empowered, makes me feel good, and I think it's such a positive thing."

None


Jenner has been trying to curb her social media use, lately. Her screen time has "been going down 20 percent" each week, according to an app on her phone. But she also knows that social media is her "advertisement, the way I show my products." She doesn't feel guilty about exposing her young followers to a filtered vision of beauty that apparently requires millions, close to billions, of dollars to achieve; isn't losing sleep over the occasional piece of diet pill sponcon. Just hopes fans know that she's "trying to set a good example." The pursuit of prettiness has enriched her life, and she believes it can help others, too. When a woman's reflection matches the mental image she holds of herself, Jenner's transfixing, selfie-laden success story seems to imply, she is free to go forth and conquer.

None


"Makeup is something that makes me feel empowered, makes me feel good, and I think it's such a positive thing," she says, with an earnestness that's nothing if not compelling. "There's no harm in playing around with it and feeling good about yourself." Maybe the fillers are optional, after all.
