Joe Jonas

"For so many years I had a lot of cooks in the kitchen and other members of bands that I was working with. This was the first time that I was really able to say, ‘I want to create something on my own and see what this could be.’”

As rites of passage go, popstar evolution comes with a high casualty rate. Joe Jonas was born in 1989, yet he’s sashaying past “the 27 club” with a litany of chart-tracking hits, a supermodel ex-girlfriend, and a jet-set lifestyle. But it’s the omissions that stand out – no arrests, no drug overdoses, weapons charges, near-fatal accidents involving swimming pools… Yet […]

“The project is super, super personal; I’ve never said these things to people publicly. This is me giving my heart to everyone — my eight ounces.”

“I love my friends,” R&B sensation Justine Skye proclaims. “We’re obsessed with each other.” On first look, the 21-year-old seems intimidating. She is surprisingly tall, striking, and her hair is out of control. Justine Skye burst onto the music scene while she was still a teen. Her music is a refreshing blend of Solange-style real talk and beachy beats, as […]

Debunking the Walk of Shame through Quantum Mechanics and X-Pro II

Have you ever seen Michelangelo’s “David” in person?
 It’s milkier than you’d expect, and also smaller (always smaller) than you believed it to be from art history books. It’s strangely anti-climactic to absorb the sculpture with your own two eyes, similar to the way the Mona Lisa isn’t as thrilling as its omnipresence across the world should confirm. The David […]

“You don’t have to like my music, you don’t have to like me as a person, but you can’t look at what happened to me and not be inspired by it.”

Yup, I know the people they diggin’ me now From a small seed, a mighty tree can grow. This is the quintessential idea that germinates in the American Dream. Consider this formidable sapling: from a SoundCloud release of his first single “Don’t” reaching over sixty million plays, to recognition from Drake, one of his greatest influences, to attention from Timbaland, […]

L.A. Babe

The women of L.A.'s scandalous past as documented by Moshe Brakha in "LA Babe: Crazy, Sexy, Cool Photography 1975-1989"

L.A. Babe. The words evoke an archetype of American femininity, a cultural touchstone that has been embedded via film, television, music and advertising into the global psyche, for better or worse. It is the ne plus ultra of aspirational living, the dominant model of the “ideal woman” for the last fifty years. But the L.A. Babe is not a monolithic […]
