I think Frank Ocean is horny. First he posts a picture of his crotch, then one of him in the bathtub. Not that I’m complaining. Finally, he just recently posted a pic of the Tenga sex toy (the Opening Ceremony version, to boot!), along with the caption, ‘innovation’.
Apparently he’s working on an upcoming HIV/AIDS prevention project, so some are saying that this is a precursor to that. Because if there’s one way to prevent HIV/AIDS, it’s fucking a piece of rubber. No judgments. We’ve all been there.
Jump in to see the crotch and Tenga pics. OMG. Crotch & Tenga. That’s what I’m calling my new line of handbags.
Spank Rock, ‘Cool S#@!’ from his 2011 album, ‘Everything Is Boring & Everyone Is A Fucking Liar’. Pitchfork hated this record. I haven’t heard the whole thing but I love the single. Jump in to give it a listen.
It’s about goddamn time. I became obsessed with Eleanor Friedberger about a year ago and have been listening to her debut album ‘Last Summer’ ever since. I told myself I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if I didn’t get new Eleanor music soon. Just in the nick of time, my friend Mark said to me, “Don’t worry, Phil, new music is coming”. Well, wouldn’t you know it, he was right!
You can watch the super-cool, lo-fi video for ‘Stare at the Sun’ above.
‘My Mistakes’ from her solo debut album, ‘Last Summer’ is after the jump.
Balenciaga’s new Creative Director, Alexander Wang interviews rapper A$AP Rocky for Interview’s April 2013 issue. There are also some cool shots from photographer Craig McDean. My favorite quote from the interview?
A$AP tells Mr. Wang, “…one big issue in hip-hop is the gay thing. It’s 2013, and it’s a shame that, to this day, that topic still gets people all excited. It’s crazy. And it makes me upset that this topic even matters when it comes to hip-hop, because it makes it seem like everybody in hip-hop is small-minded or stupid—and that’s not the case.”

My spies in PDX have given me the 411 on last night’s drunken debauchery out in Portland. Gossip’s lead singer and all around belle of the ball, Beth Ditto was arrested for disorderly conduct. Now, for those of you not up-to-date with your fancy police jargon, that loosely translates to ‘bitch was having a good ol’ time and the po-po got her’.
All the dirty details are inside.
New York-based performance artist turned musician Zebra Katz has a new cut, ‘Y I Do’. As usual, the video is dark, moody, and cool. He really has his own sound and sounds totally fresh. That I can get behind. BTW, that’s Rick Owens styling Zebra in the pic above.
