Chart-topping K-Pop girl group BLACKPINK has broken a world video record, is an international hit, and has most recently achieved another major career milestone by being the first female K-Pop group to perform at Coachella. Jennie, Lisa, Rosé, and Jisoo were easily a crowd favorite for both hardcore fans and curious listeners, as people in the crowd danced to bops like “Ddu-du Ddu-du," and “Kill This Love."

None


The crowd spilled over the stage limits, and couldn’t get enough of the electrifying performance. The girls donned their blindingly glittery dresses and two-piece outfits, danced in perfect unison, and worked their audience. And despite the fact that most of the words in their songs are Korean, the band encouraged everyone to sing along.




None


Jennie also became the first K-Pop solo artist to grace the Coachella stage when she performed her solo single, the appropriately-named “Solo.”

None


?“Kill This Love" also got one of the biggest responses of the night, with the sound of horns echoing throughout the Coachella desert as the chorus played. As the stage turned red, and backup dancers in military-like uniforms appeared, the crowd yelled "BLACKPINK in your area!" in unison, and it was amazing.


None


?Towards the end of their set, Rosé said, "Us coming all the way from South Korea, we didn't know what to expect, and obviously we — you guys and us — we're from totally different worlds. But tonight I think we've learned so deeply that music brings us as one. So I want to thank you guys tonight for sticking by to the end of the show." She added, "You guys are awesome. And those of you who will be joining us at the concert next week, we'll see you soon."

?Their Coachella concert marks the first of their many performances in the U.S. The group kicks off their tour on Wednesday night, headlining a show at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

The Best On-Stage Cameos from Coachella Day Onehttp://www.mmkwk.tw/coachella-surprise-cameos-2634535781.html

Coachella's only begun, and we've already had plenty of great performances from day one. Friday's headlining act was Childish Gambino, we also witnessed greatness from Janelle Monaé, The 1975, Kacey Musgraves, and worldwide K-Pop sensation BLACKPINK. Of course, while festival goers were fully expecting their minds to be blown by these artists' performances alone, the acts did not disappoint in adding something a little *extra* while they were onstage.

None


A number of surprise cameos happened were brought along with Friday night's acts. Here are the best guest appearances that kicked off the festival:

Baddie Winkle?


Ninety-year-old Internet sensation Baddie Winkle danced onstage with Kacey Musgrave as the country singer performed her hit "High Horse." The iconic social media influencer donned as bold a look as usual, wearing a colorful floral-patterned, dominantly pink dress with a pink belt.


Cardi B and Selena Gomez


DJ Snake could not complete his set without performing "Taki Taki." And while audio of Cardi B and Selena Gomez would've sufficed for any other concert, this was Coachella, so naturally he had to bring out his two collaborators out onstage with him.

None


Lizzo and Tierra Whack


None


Janelle Monaé brought out Lizzo and Tierra Whack to perform her Dirty Computer track, “I Got the Juice." And, yes, it's safe to say everyone got a healthy does of Black Girl Magic at Coachella.

None


Jennie Kim


Okay. So *technically* this isn't a cameo, given that Jennie Kim's already part of BLACKPINK, but the singer as a solo artist came out onstage as well. Jennie performed her single "Solo," and apparently also made history as the first K-Pop soloist to perform at Coachella.

None


Tzef Montana


Non-binary fashion model Tzef Montana, who is also singer-songwriter SOPHIE's girlfriend, made a cameo and twerked the night away during the artist's finale song, and PAPER's #1 bop of 2018,"Immaterial Girls."

Here's How to Watch Childish Gambino and Rihanna's Moviehttp://www.mmkwk.tw/guava-island-watch-full-movie-2634532235.html

As it turns out, Childish Gambino (a.k.a. Donald Glover) and Rihanna's film Guava Island ahead of Coachella 2019 weekend. The movie, which runs 54 minutes long, and stars not only the two artists but also Black Panther's Letitia Wright, debuted on Thursday night with about 100 guests invited to the exclusive event.

None


The premiere was set in a special domed theater on the Coachella grounds, decorated with faux grass, and of course tie-dyed cushions and fleece blankets so that everyone was comfortable.


None


The film is centered on an aspiring musician, Deni (Glover), whose only dream is to write a song that unites the people. He's somewhat of a local celebrity, but also works at Red Cargo, a manufacturing warehouse run by his boss Red Cargo (Nonso Anozie). Meanwhile, his ever-supportive girlfriend Kofi (Rihanna) — who is also the narrator of the story — works at a sewing factory with Yara (Wright).

None


The main conflict comes when Cargo threatens Deni not to perform at the upcoming music festival, because the rest of the employees will arrive late to work the next day. Cargo smashes Deni's guitar to prove his point, and gives him $10,000 to run away. The protagonist then has to decide whether he'll allow himself to be silenced in order to protect himself, or air his music despite the adversities that will come his way.

None


The movie features Childish Gambino's hits "This is America," "Summertime Magic" and "Feels Like Summer." Rihanna, however, does not sing in the entire film. It looks like she might be saving that for her upcoming album. Still we get to see both artists flex their acting skills, and as boyfriend and girlfriend — so, if you totally ship this, then this movie is a must-watch.

None


Guava Island is an Amazon Studios project, and is now available for viewing on Prime Video. Watch a short clip from the film below.

A Fire Breaks Out at Coachella 2019http://www.mmkwk.tw/fire-coachella-2019-2634529751.html

It looks like Coachella weekend 2019 started with a bang, literally. After Friday night's performances featuring Janelle Monáe, headliner Childish Gambino, and guest appearances by Cardi B and Selena Gomez during DJ Snake's "Taki Taki," a fire broke out at the campground.

None


Apparently, according to several witnesses who were dozing off on the campsite, it was an explosion that caused the fire which began to blaze at around 2:00 AM. The specific spot that the fire burned down were the mobile showers provided by the festival organizers.

None


None


None


None


According to the CAL FIRE and Riverside Fire Department, the shower unit that exploded was located near the center of the venue. And while two trailers have been affected (one damaged, and one totally destroyed) by the fire, by around 2:28 AM the fire crews were able to contain the flames, and no guests were harmed by the accident.

None


None


It looks like the curse of Fyre Fest continues to haunt other music festivals. Just last month, in addition to logistical problems with transportation, a fire had also broken out at the 2019 Ultra Music Festival. Attendees of the EDM fest dubbed it "Fyre Fest Lite."

None


So far, this literal fire is the only blip that's happened this first weekend of Coachella. Hopefully no more surprises come the attendees' way — except, you know, major surprise guest appearances. Saturday's headliner is Australian psychedelic music band Tame Impala, while Ariana Grande is set to headline Sunday's show.

Chelsea Manning Documentary 'XY Chelsea' Releases First-Look Trailerhttp://www.mmkwk.tw/chelsea-manning-xy-chelsea-2634486750.html

Showtime has finally released a first-look trailer for the highly-anticipated Chelsea Manning documentary, XY Chelsea — and, needless to say, it's a poignant, deeply personal look into the post-prison life of Manning.

None


Directed by Tim Travers Hawkins and executive produced by Laura Poitras, XY Chelsea begins on the day she leaves prison and chronicles the next two years, in which she deals with amplified discussions about trans visibility and national security, all while grappling with the fact that she "[lost] seven years of my life."

Manning, who was convicted of handing over state secrets to Wikileaks and sentenced to 35 years in a maximum security prison in 2013, had her sentence commuted by President Obama in 2017. Given that Manning was arrested again last month and is reportedly being held in solitary confinement for refusing to testify against recently-arrested WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, XY Chelsea is an important testament to her bravery and conviction — and should definitely be at the top of your watch list when it comes out.

None


XY Chelsea is set to premiere on May 1 at the Tribeca Film Festival. The documentary will premiere on Showtime Friday, June 7 at 9 p.m. ET.

Janelle Monae Opens Up About Her Coming Out Experiencehttp://www.mmkwk.tw/janelle-monae-coming-out-2634482575.html

Last year, Janelle Monae came out as pansexual in an interview with Rolling Stone. Now, Monae is opening up about the coming out experience itself via a conversation with Lizzo for them.

None


Though she said she was "terrified" and anticipated people thinking it was a "publicity stunt," Monae says she was pleasantly surprised by the positive response she received.

None


"I thought I wasn't gonna be able to go back home and be at all the barbecues," she said. "I had anxiety. And a lot of it was just untrue. It was my fear of what people were gonna say. And I'm thankful that I didn't allow that fear to get in the way of my freedom."

None


None


Not only that, but Monae also took a moment to outline her philosophy on sexual identity, describing it as a "journey" that has led her to discover, evolve, and grow over the years.

None



"That's the exciting thing — always finding out new things about who you are," she continues. "And that's what I love about life. It takes us on journeys that not even we ourselves sometimes are prepared for. You just adapt to where you are and how you've evolved as a free thinking person."

Monae also goes on to talk about how making Dirty Computer helped her talk about her sexuality.

"There were just conversations that I had to have with myself and my family about my sexuality and the impact that speaking honestly and truthfully about it through my art would have," Monae said before explaining that she grew up going to a Baptist church in a very small, Midwestern town. "To be anything other than heterosexual is a sin in that community, and growing up, I was always told I'd go to hell if I was. There was a part of me that had to deal with what that meant."

None


That said, Monae ended up seeing a therapist and was able to figure out how to "have conversations with myself and the folks that love and care about me." And though they may not get what exactly it means to be queer, the artist said that she "had to" share her truth — especially if her speaking up helped others.

None


None


"I'll also add that it wasn't like I wanted to even make it a declaration," she continued. "I knew that by being truthful through my art, people were gonna have questions, and I had to figure out a way to talk about it."

Carly Rae Jepsen Updated the 'Your Brain on Drugs' PSAhttp://www.mmkwk.tw/carly-rae-jepsen-your-brain-on-drugs-2634478357.html

Carly Rae Jepsen has a public service announcement: good pop is addictive, and it can fry your brain. She wants people to be careful while listening to her new love-as-narcotic motif single "No Drug Like Me," off her recently announced album Dedicated. In order to spread awareness about the pop epidemic plaguing the nation, she parodied the iconic and extremely scientifically inaccurate "Your Brain on Drugs" War on Drugs-era government PSA campaign.

"And this is what your body goes through" she goes on to say, as the yolk slides off. She proceeds to destroy the entire kitchen with the pan, screaming warnings about her addictive bop.

Lana Del Rey Releases New Poemhttp://www.mmkwk.tw/lana-del-rey-poem-2634482035.html

As fans are anxiously aware, Lana Del Rey's follow up to her 2017 album, Lust for Life is pretty much finished and ready for a release this year. Having already shared a handful of singles like "Mariners Apartment Complex" and the psychedelic dreamscape that is "Venice Bitch," the singer has even revealed the album's name: Norman Fucking Rockwell.

None


While the upcoming project named after the American author, painter and illustrator is generating plenty of excitement for Del Rey's new music, the artist is releasing several poems alongside new tracks like "hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have." She revealed earlier this year they were part of a short collection of poems she's written and bound in books to be sold each for a single dollar in California bookstores. The book is to be called Violet Bent Backwards Over the Grass and it contains some really beautiful prose.

None


Take the latest buzz poem, "Never to Heaven," for example. The queen of recreational sadness paints a vivid picture and asks the big questions saying, "the whys in this lifetime I've found are inconsequential compared to the magic of the nowness." Combatting the existential dread with wisdom, the poet goes onto dismiss the worry, opting instead to," be sitting on the lawn reading something unsubstantial with the television on."


None


Coinciding with the upcoming release of her fifth studio album, Lana Del Rey's latest work is presenting in her truest form. While most fans responded in the comments with "Where's the album!," something tells me Norman Fucking Rockwell has several parts. Expanding on the style of her music's sweeping, filmic quality and instrumentation, the poetry is a welcome supplement to the music that fans adore.

Gypsy Rose Blanchard Is Engagedhttp://www.mmkwk.tw/gypsy-rose-blanchard-engaged-2634480194.html

Gypsy Rose Blanchard — the 27-year-old whose life story served as the inspiration for Hulu's The Act and the HBO documentary, Mommy Dead and Dearest — is reportedly engaged.

None


People reports that Gypsy told family and friends earlier this year that she was planning on getting married to her boyfriend — though she apparently wants to keep his identity private. "They are very happy," family friend Fancy Micelli told the publication. "You can hear excitement in her voice."

None


According to the report, the two have known each other for a year-and-a-half and plan to get married once Gypsy is released from prison. They began dating when her fiancé wrote to her in prison after watching Mommy Dead and Dearest. And though Micelli says that Gypsy's family hasn't met her fiancé yet, they're apparently happy with the engagement and plan to meet next month.

None

"[This relationship] is a good thing for her," Micelli continued. "And whether it ends up being that way in the end no one knows, but for her right now it's a very positive and happy time."

None


Gypsy is currently serving a 10 year prison sentence for the second-degree murder for her mother, Dee Dee, who was convinced that Gypsy was suffering from multiple illnesses as a part of a rare form of abuse known as Munchausen-by-proxy. In 2015, Gypsy murdered her mother with the help of then-boyfriend Nicholas Godejohn — who is in prison for life without parole, per People.

None


That said, Micelli tells the publication that Gypsy's new relationship is much healthier than the one of "desperation" she had with Godejohn. "She's 27-years-old, she deserves to be in love and she deserves to have somebody who cares about her," Micelli concluded. "He's just there for her."

Billie Eilish Talks Teen Substance Abuse and Griefhttp://www.mmkwk.tw/billie-eilish-xanny-2634481923.html

"She was throwing up everywhere, and nobody was phased. It was just so weird, I was like, 'What?' This is normal? That's normal for you," Billie Eilish says as she dejectedly contemplates the details of a party that inspired her track, "xanny.


None


Eilish has been in the news a lot recently, mostly for her commercial strides with her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, a feat that was accompanied by the setting of numerous other records, like being the first artist born in the 2000s to secure the chart position. It's no wonder why, either; the album is a fantastical nightmare, conceived by the mind of a teenager born in the wake of the millenium. Song titles like "wish you were gay" and "my strange addiction" demonstrate a genuine experience with the cultural phenomena of the past two decade, in the same way that imported audio clips ripped from "The Office" show off an unmediated awareness of binge-watch culture. Eilish has become something of a mastermind in this department, pairing raw talent with a direct line to all things "now."

None


In a clip from her new series about the making of the album, "A Snippet into Billie's Mind," Eilish delves more deeply into the track that most Top 40 pop listeners probably dread the most when it inevitably plays with the album on shuffle, and rightfully so.

None


"Xanny" is dark and distinct, whereas most of the other songs on the record have a certain pop palatability. An extremely distorted bassline erupts upon the end of the first verse, which is comparatively gentle. The bass gurgles beneath Eilish's words, sending some syllables peaking into an untapped vibrational territory. The result is an extremely jarring and tone-oscillating track that evokes all of the influences of a "modern pop," defined by pioneers like SOPHIE and Lana Del Rey. It's slow and soft, and then suddenly, it's fast and hard.

None


The clip about "xanny" shows Eilish and her brother, known by his artist name FINNEAS, discussing the inspirations behind both the sounds and the themes. "We had a very jazzy, Frank Sinatra view on the whole song," Eilish begins, speaking to the more lulling portions of the song. After they imported a sparse drum kit to accompany the jazz-inspired loop, the instrumental for verses was complete. The sounds that came next were inspired by a girl blowing cigarette smoke into Eilish's face at a party. "We wanted it to sort of sound like what it feels like to be in secondhand smoke," she says of the violent drops in the chorus.


None


Experiencing a party "secondhand" was actually the exigence for the lyrics and theming of the track itself. Eilish states that she was shocked at the numbness that has begun to characterize and encourage unhealthy activities, like binge-drinking, in young people. At one specific party, she says her friends were super messed up after drinking. "They were Juuling, throwing up, drinking. Kept throwing up, kept drinking more," she says of the night that inspired the track. "What was really weird to me was that nobody cared." The apathy of these teenage years is what bothered Eilish the most. "Just watching my friends become completely not who they were, watching their personalities crumple up and fall."

None


Events like these frustrate and affect Eilish, especially when the harmful behavior comes from her friends. "Drugs and, you know, cigarettes are you killing yourself," she says, hitting at the core of "xanny."

None


The ultimate cap on a song that seems to have no hope is that Eilish recorded the final verse, a melancholy blow to listeners, only two days after a friend of hers had passed. While she doesn't indicate that this particular death was a result of substance use, its meaning and significance still pained at her realization about the mortality of loved ones. It forced her to confront her concerns about other friends, whom she only wants "dying by mistake."

Ariana Grande Shared a Brain Scan Showing Her PTSDhttp://www.mmkwk.tw/ariana-grande-brain-scan-trauma-2634477612.html

Ariana Grande is busy. Between smashing records with her latest back-to-back musical projects, Sweetner and thank u, next, the accomplished pop star has been managing a personal life with twists and turns that have played out pretty publicly over the years.

None


Channeling all the strife into a growing list of undeniable pop anthems like "no tears left to cry" and "breathin," Grande has opened up about her struggles while creating a balm to soothe them. As the singer prepares to headline this weekend's Coachella with a set that's rumored to include (gasp!) *NSYNC, she took to her Instagram stories to release something that's got fans pouring out support.

None


Uploading photos of side by side comparisons showing a "healthy brain" on the left next to a brain affected with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder on the right, the singer followed up with the results of her own brain scan. The photo of Grande's brain scan, like the PTSD brain, was lit up in similar regions and showed the effects of some serious hardships the artist has endured.

None


None


Having spoken out about working towards maintaining mental health after the tragic 2017 bombing of her Manchester concert, the singer's revelation is a testament to the very real effects of trauma. Grande's recent success has widened her platform for discussing this with the public and destigmatizing mental illness. Last year, she told British Vogue her PTSD was a "real thing," adding that concert-goers and fans had "a tremendous amount of it as well."

None


Always finding humor in the madness, the singer called the scans "hilarious and terrifying" and insisted she's "trying her muthafukin best." It goes without saying that Grande's strength is something to take note of and her openness demonstrates the very real impact that trauma has on people universally beyond entertainment.

None


None


While Grande's in the middle of the US leg of her Sweetner tour, the singer is also getting ready to headline on the Coachella stage this weekend, becoming the youngest female artist to have the honor.

Charli XCX’s ‘True Romance’ Turns 6: Here’s How We’re Celebratinghttp://www.mmkwk.tw/charli-xcx-true-romance-2634474375.html

Before she opened for Taylor Swift on the Reputation Stadium Tour, before she filmed the best music video of 2018 with Troye Sivan for "1999," and way before she started releasing mixtapes full of SOPHIE and A.G. Cook-produced hits, Charli XCX dropped True Romance.

None


True Romance, released on April 12, 2013, was Charli XCX's debut album, and it cemented the singer-writer-producer as name to know in electro-pop. A generous smattering of synths fill the silent spaces between her verses on every track, and with only one feature from fellow innovator Brooke Candy, it's an album that stands strong with Charli's vocal and lyrical capabilities at the forefront.

None


RELATED | Charli XCX Is Pop's Cult Leader

None


Fans are always quick to congratulate Charli on the anniversaries of her bodies of work, sending her a treasure trove of memes and pulling her into their arguments about the top songs from each respective work. The sixth anniversary of the release of True Romance feels a little different for some reason; perhaps it's because Charli's been in the studio, publicly revealing to fans that she's working on her first studio album since 2014's Sucker. It's an exciting time to be an Angel, with the success of "1999" and the revival of her label, Vroom Vroom Recordings, and with the band Nasty Cherry.

None


While there isn't a single bad track on True Romance — and that's a fact — in honor of the occasion, here are our top 5 tracks from the revolutionary record.

5. Nuclear Seasons


None


The album opener is so grand and so unequivocally True Romance. Almost immediately, Charli's inherent talent for writing radio-level infectious pop comes through. "We survived nuclear seasons," she repeats over and over, broken up only by "oh ah" ad-libs, popularized by the dance-pop trailblazers of the 2010s. It's a song that, even upon hearing it for the first time, echoes like an old lullaby in your head.

4. Cloud Aura?(feat. Brooke Candy)


None


"Cloud Aura" contains the first and only feature on the album, delivered in the form of a bumping verse from Brooke Candy. It's got the same elements as the other 12 songs on the album in terms of drum kit styling and electronic fills, but what sets it apart is the unique instrumentation behind the repetition of the chorus. Each pluck grinds harmoniously against Charli's steamy vocals, enchanting listeners upon the completion of each bar.

3. Grins


None


"Grins" isn't as intense and direct as the other songs on this list. The track provides Charli with a full range of motion to sing and show off the poetic lyricism that defined her first era. It's spacey and grand, but where it lacks in straightforward, more structured tones, it makes up for in its message and impressive finale.

2. Take My Hand


None


Perhaps "Take My Hand" made this list because of it foreshadowing Charli's sickly-sweet bubblegum pop future with PC Music royalty. While it may have been fans' first inkling of her futuristic take on '90s-style instrumentation and vocal production, it's now a clear middle ground between her rock-inspired sophomore album Sucker and her mixtapes, Number 1 Angel and Pop 2. Dazzling blips and pops back-up acoustic claps and kicks while Charli does what she does best: deliver earworm after earworm-verse.

1. What I Like


None


"What I Like" is an example of the type of magic that can be conjured when a multi-talented lyricist finds a production style that cushions and encourages their rhymes and melodies. Speeding synths accelerate a narrative told by Charli about a hedonistic love, one that she wants to be "on some husband and wife shit" with. Each line of the chorus almost runs into the next, already pressed up against a bopping beat lined with rings and quick runs of hi-hats. It's a song that encapsulates everything that Charli has stood for since the very beginning: uninhibited style, sex, and sound exploration.

The BTS x Halsey Video Is Herehttp://www.mmkwk.tw/bts-halsey-video-album-drop-2634468104.html

Happy BTS week! The K-pop icons dropped their seven-track new album Map of the Soul: Persona, today which includes a surprise Ed Sheeran feature (he wrote "Make It Right") — as well as the full version of their extremely anticipated Halsey collab "Boy With Luv." Their week of glory commences on Saturday night, when perform "Boy With Luv" for their SNL debut, with Emma Stone (who stans) hosting.


None


The band has also finally shared the visual for "Boy With Luv," which is cotton candy in music video form. It's fluffy, sugary and extremely pink: replete with every shade of the color from flamingo to magenta, fun choreography (karate kicks, the Fortnite move, I think?) and fabulous 'fits, as always (matching pink robes, feathery white silk suits, shout out to a blue-haired V's huge floral ring). There's also a confusing but endearing storyline that follows the boys and Halsey teaming up to save a struggling local theatre: turning a dumpy hall and turning it into a Times Square-worthy venue full of screaming fans.

Halsey, pink-haired like Jimin for the occasion, begins the journey as a bored ticket-booth attendant while the band gyrates, each in a different shade of pink outside the theatre. The seven band-members prance through the theatre, their outfits chameleon-ing as they go from room to room and outside into a cartoonish green-screened dreamscape of candy clouds. Halsey and BTS eventually unite on a sofa for a round of the soon-to-be ubiquitous chorus "oh my my my!" like the cast of Friends. Don't worry, Halsey joins the guys for a group dance number.

Halsey and BTS are an undeniably infectious combo: the video already has 43 million views on YouTube and climbing (possible they'll break the record their peers BLACKPINK set last week for for the biggest music video debut?). According to Halsey, the video was as fun to make as it looks.

Britney Spears Spotted Getting Her Hair Donehttp://www.mmkwk.tw/britney-spears-visits-hair-salon-2634465475.html

Earlier last month, Britney Spears checked herself into a mental health facility spurred by the stress from her father, Jamie Spears' deteriorating health.

None


The pop star is reportedly slated to spend 30 days at the center and, according to reports, has been doing really well. Fans and paparazzi got a glimpse of that Thursday morning as she stepped out to visit a hair salon in Los Angeles, E! News reports.

According to eyewitnesses, Spears supposedly "arrived with three people from team....to get her blonde roots and extensions retouched." They additionally noted that singer appeared in "good spirits."

"She seemed fine and content… [She] was definitely excited to get her hair done," the source told E! News. "Several people worked on Britney's hair and were very quick and efficient to get her out of there as fast as possible."

None


The singer has been under a lot of pressure since her father took ill following a colon rupture earlier this year. She has since announced she's going on an indefinite break, canceling her highly anticipated Britney: Domination show at the Park MGM resort in Las Vegas.

None


"I don't even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say," Spears wrote in an emotional tweet, earlier this year. "I will not be performing my new show Domination. I've been looking forward to this show and seeing all of you this year, so doing this breaks my heart." Explaining her decision, she added that it has always been important for her to put her family first. "A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We're all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him."


None




Her father remains in recovery and PEOPLE reports that Spears has since decided to take time off to focus on herself.

"Her dad being sick has taken a toll on her," a source told the outlet. "He nearly died and actually had another surgery a few weeks ago. He's not doing well. They're so close and it has been a lot. There is nothing dramatic going on with her — she just realized she needs to make sure to take time to care for herself."

None


After a prolonged hiatus from social media, the singer also posted a picture on Instagram hinting at her decision to take some time off. "Fall in love with taking care of yourself, mind, body, spirit," the picture read along with a caption, that said. "We all need to take time for a little "me time." :) "

Is Ariana Grande Reuniting *NSYNC at Coachella?http://www.mmkwk.tw/ariana-grande-nsync-coachella-2634468121.html

What, if anything, will be Coachella 2019's big iconic moment? Beyoncé is definitely a hard act to follow, but our money's on Ariana Grande's Sunday night performance blowing collective minds. Especially as she might be bringing some special guests out on stage, if internet rumors are to be believed.

None


After sampling their 2000s deep cut "It Makes Me Ill" on Thank U, Next track "Break Up With Your Girlfriend," fans are speculating Ariana is going to collaborate with the nostalgic boy band IRL. Evidence is compelling: Grande posted two *NSYNC-themed videos on social media this week. First, incredible vintage footage of her attending one of their concerts as a child. Then one of her trademark filtered videos, where she's dancing to "Tearin' Up My Heart" in a dressing room.

None


But that's not all. Grande's manager Scooter Braun — the man who gave the world Justin Bieber — retweeted that first video, and then tweeted again hyping up her upcoming Coachella set. He hinted there were surprises in store, saying that audiences had "no idea what's coming."


None


If *NSYNC do reunite on the Coachella stage, that's a huge deal for their stans. While their rivals the Backstreet Boys are still touring, the group hasn't performed together since the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, as part of a Justin Timberlake medley. The members were most recently photographed together when receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in April of last year.

None


Grande's first weekend Coachella performance begins Sunday, April 14 at 10.30PM PT.

Christine and the Queens Drops Shakespearean 'Comme Si' Videohttp://www.mmkwk.tw/christine-and-the-queens-comme-si-2634467091.html

Since making an impressive 2014 debut with some of the most infectious pop music around, Christine and The Queens is still rewriting the rules in an industry obsessed with the binary.

None


The ever-evolving singer, songwriter and producer behind the bops, Hélo?se Letissier, is gearing up for a Broadway-style set at Coachella this coming weekend, and has just dropped a visual for "Comme Si" that's taking the drama to Shakespearean levels.

None


In another single from Chris, the deliciously bass-heavy record named after the singer's gender-fluid moniker, the artist reimagines Hamlet in the most badass way. The David Wilson-directed video was filmed in Thailand and subverts the plot with a clever twist.

None

None


Letissier broke it down in a statement saying, "in Hamlet, Ophelia is, of course, the unlucky lover, the rejected one; but her madness and the suicide that ensues is also symptomatic of a whole era: the young girl, unwanted, unloved, simply cannot live. She's doomed, she disappears, she melts with nature."

None


The gorgeous video sees the artist shedding a white dress in the meadow to perform a visceral interpretive dance splashing through a river. Spinning the story of unrequited love with a triumphant expression of all the frustration, sexuality and humor this character could contain, the clip ends with the singer gazing at the sky before a waterfall. Reclaiming the self-love and empowerment that's rare to any literary damsel, Letissier creates an "erotic reverie of subverting rejection with self-empowerment."

None

This Beauty Blogger Is Dragging Us For Our Nineties Makeup Routineshttp://www.mmkwk.tw/jaime-french-beauty-youtube-90s-2634443217.html

Nineties nostalgia has been part of the zeitgeist and a major theme across runways for a while now. But what about makeup? Let's be real, the late nineties weren't exactly on point when it came to the art of contouring. Our foundations were a shade lighter, blending was nonexistent, and glitter was a must. Dark times.

None


Beauty blogger Jaime French remembers it well. In a hilarious five minute clip inspired by a tweet wondering what would have happened had there been beauty bloggers back then, the Youtuber breaks down what a makeup tutorial would've looked like in 1999. "I'm going to get you glam for all occasions, whether it's homeroom or hanging out," she says in the beginning of the video.



None


To start, French recommends finding the "cakiest" foundation available — and don't worry about brushes or beauty blenders. "Just apply it with this piece of crap from your mom's bathroom," she says while holding what looks like a spongy ball. "Now what you're gonna do when you get to your jawline is leave a nice little line of demarcation. Don't even worry about blending it."

None


Skipping concealer and setting powders altogether (because what even are those?) French moves on to adding some blush. "Just tap it on with your fingers. It doesn't even need to be blended. Honestly, don't worry about it," she notes while rubbing on a deep pink and red all across her cheeks.

None



For the 'statement eye,' "you really want sticky eyelids. Just get the frostiest color that you have, and go all the way up to your eyebrow," she recommends, reminding her viewers to "resist the urge to blend" their makeup. "Like you want harsh lines." Wow, okay, painfully real.

None


Because apparently no one had any idea what they were doing, French then dabs on a questionable white makeup product that she says to use as a "powder." "It'll really make it stick, and will even make it last through PE. Get it up there, girls. like don't stop at the lids."

None


For the mascara, the blogger throws some serious shade to our ultimate favorite product from then. "We all know Maybelline Great Lash is the best," she says advising to pick a mascara that'll "last a week."

None


Next up: eyebrows.Sure, feathered and thick eyebrows are all the rage now, but if you were following makeup trends back then, you know that plucking them out till they basically disappeared was the real shit. "Eyebrows are not important at all," she says while drawing a thin brown line across her barely visible brows.

None


For the ultimate pre-millennium lip, French recommends "lining them with a dark color" and then filling them in with a lighter shade. "Just like, try to make it frosty, you know."

And the magnum opus of the look? Roll on body glitter. "Just shake it and cover your body with it. You really want to get it so it gets crusted to your arm hair. You add some to your eyes, add some to your cheeks," she instructs. Done.

Why Celebrities Are Posting Silent Instagram Videos Todayhttp://www.mmkwk.tw/day-of-silence-lgbtq-2634462697.html

A few days ago, legendary actress and perennial hair goals Julia Roberts uploaded a black and white video onto her Instagram, saying nothing. Gazing off with just the sound of the breeze in the background, Roberts' post, while completely silent, speaks to her support of the LGBTQ students who face daily harassment for their orientation or gender expression.

None


The actress is just one of many public figures supporting the nearly 8 out of every 10 students experiencing verbal harassment in schools nationwide. She joins the ranks of people like Ellen Degeneres, Rosario Dawson, Kerry Washington and the ladies at The View posting their silent videos to raise awareness, the cause is one that GLSEN has been sponsoring since 2001.

None


While #DayOfSilence is now a hashtag and an initiative that over 10,000 students register for in schools annually, it was started at the University of Virginia in 1996 in response to a class assignment on non-violent protesting. In the following year, it drew participation from 100 institutions and has since become the largest student-led national protest in support of safe and inclusive schools.

Taking a vow of silence commemorates the erasure of LGBTQ people in schools and lack of representation in curriculums while raising awareness for the organization that combats these issues year-round.

None


You can show your support for the cause and keep schools safe for LGBTQ youth by going to glsen.org/silence or raise awareness by uploading your own silence in solidarity with the official #DayOfSilence tag on social media.

17 Acts to See at Coachella That Aren’t Ariana Grande (With All Due Respect)http://www.mmkwk.tw/17-acts-to-see-at-coachella-2634259548.html

Right now, around 100,000 people are streaming into the Indio desert for two consecutive weekends of drug and Instagram-fueled musical hedonism at Coachella, which kicks off the 2019 festival season. Here are the rules: be nice, drink water and do your part to make 2018 the last year that white people show up in bindis and feather headdresses.

None


It might have plenty of other sparkly toys and corporate pop-up enchantments to play with, but Coachella's main attraction will always be its unrivaled expansive and expensive line-up, which brags over 150 acts (who'll play both weekends' identical line-ups).

None


It's a daunting poster this year. Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande are headlining, but there are so many major acts every night that Album of the Year Grammy-winner Kacey Musgraves is billed as a third-line act for Friday. Lizzo as fourth-line for Sunday?! World-renowned DJ Idris Elba is hidden all the way down in the fifth line for Saturday?

None


You guys know better than to skip BLACKPINK's historic performance — or Rosalía, Bad Bunny, SOPHIE, King Princess, Maggie Rogers, Tierra Whack, Christine and the Queens, Blood Orange or (one more time for the people in the back) Lizzo's, right? Cool. With those faves accounted for, to help you navigate the line-up, we've rounded up 17 of the finer-print acts whose names might be... well, anonymous entries on a festival poster to you, but who you shouldn't miss.

1. 070 Shake


The New Jersey rapper has a sticky voice like syrup (always glazed with just the right touch of autotune), hypnotic hooks and an aggressive moodiness rare in songs that also move your body around the dancefloor. She broke out last year with a show-stealing vocal on Kanye's "Ghost Town" off of Ye (that she first learned about at the campfire) and since released a killer debut EP Glitter. Maybe she'll even bring Yeezy out for a duet?

None


See her:

Weekend 1: Sunday, April 14 - 7:15 pm-7:50 pm at Gobi

Weekend 2: Sunday, April 21 - 7:15 pm-7:50 pm at Gobi

None


2. Khruangbin


Khruangbin is an East Texas-based trio of rock and roll iconoclasts who draw inspiration from Thai funk, Middle Eastern soul and Indian instrumentals: the result is a woozy, feel-good psychedelic sound rooted in the blues that sounds like absolutely no one else.

None

Weekend 2: Friday, April 19 - 9:20 pm-10:10 pm at Gobi

3. Smino


Chicago-by-way-of-St. Louis rapper Smino (a close collaborator of Noname and Saba)'s delightfully funky, soulful, introspective raps waft through air like a hybrid of Ravyn Lenae (a member of his Chicago crew) and Chance The Rapper.

None


See him:

Weekend 1: Saturday, April 13 - 8:35 pm-9:20 pm at Gobi

Weekend 2: Saturday, April 20 - 8:35 pm-9:20 pm at Gobi

None


4. Let's Eat Grandma


Amorphous, vocal fry heavy, experimental synth pop is in full bloom right now: Let's Eat Grandma are among its most creative contributors. The music of Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingsworth is raw and colorful with a wonderful taut quality, like a bunch of floating balloons that might pop into an explosion of glitter and tears at any time.

None

Weekend 2: Friday, April 19 - 5:00 pm-5:40 pm at Outdoor Theatre

Frances Quinlan, frontwoman of the Philadelphia quartet, has a voice like a drawer of silverware being hurled at the ground, and paints intricate moments in the band's throbbing, jagged and huge-hearted indie rock.

None


See them:

Weekend 1: Saturday, April 13 - 4:35 pm-5:10 pm at Sonora

Weekend 2: Saturday, April 20 - 4:35 pm-5:10 pm at Sonora

7. Serpentwithfeet


Show up for the queer neo-R&B visionary who sings in angelic whispers about wanting to die over orchestral strings and a gospel choir. He told us last year that he wants to be known as a "stage queen," so don't miss him performing tracks off his most recent album soil.

None


See him:

Weekend 1: Saturday, April 13 - 2:40 pm-3:25 pm at Mojave

Weekend 2: Saturday, April 20 - 2:40 pm-3:25 pm at Mojave

None


8. Mon Laferte


Take a break from fist-pumping and moshing to check out Mon Laferte: the most listened to Chilean musician in the world. There's a reason for it: her emotive crooning and impressive belting over a hybrid of pop and traditional bolero music is the possibly the sound of angels.


See her:

Weekend 1: Friday, April 12 - 4:35 pm-5:20 pm at Coachella Stage

Weekend 2: Friday, April 19 - 4:35 pm-5:20 pm at Coachella Stage

9. Clairo


Allow this extremely online, 20-year-old Charli XCX-endorsed bedroom DIY pop genius, who blew up last year with a woozy bop called "Flaming Hot Cheetos" to lull you into a dreamy, sweet-sad stupor.

None

Weekend 1: Sunday, April 14 - 6:55 pm-7:40 pm at Mojave

Weekend 2: Sunday, April 21 - 6:55 pm-7:40 pm at Mojave

None


10. Rico Nasty


I've said it, I'll say it again: Rico Nasty is the most punk rock artist working in 2019. Her sugar-trap beats are electric, her flow is vicious sandpaper, and her lyrics are overflowing with rage and refusal. If you don't want your pussy hats and "nasty woman" t-shirts put to shame, definitely skip her sets.

None


See her:

Weekend 1: Sunday, April 14 - 3:30 pm-4:10 pm at Mojave

Weekend 2: Sunday, April 21 - 3:30 pm-4:10 pm at Mojave

None


11. Charlotte Gainsbourg


A French music — and film — icon, Charlotte Gainsbourg's synth-pop is an hypnotic disco frenzy, filled with ghostly dark matter vocals is one huge mood that you'll need as an antidote the overload of fist-pumping techno and sunny pop. If you turn out, maybe you'll get to hear her whispered cover of Kanye's "Runaway."

None


See her:

Weekend 1: Friday, April 12 - 10:45 pm-11:30 pm at Gobi

Weekend 2: Friday, April 19 - 10:45 pm-11:30 pm at Gobi

None


12. Yves Tumor


Yves Tumor's searing, ghoulish and genreless music defies expectation emotionally, sonically and politically. His sound has transformed wildly over time, but his latest, gorgeous and unsettling record Safe in the Hands of Love was one of the best of the year and his performance promises to be as transcendent.

None


See him:

Weekend 1: Saturday, April 13 - 12:00 am-12:50 am at Gobi

Weekend 2: Friday, April 19 - 12:00 am-12:50 am (Night of Fri. to Sat.) at Gobi

None


13. Perfume


The Japanese trio has been in the game for 10 years, but America is just catching on: they're the first J-pop group to ever play Coachella (another historic feat alongside BLACKPINK's appearance as the first k-pop girl group to grace the desert stages). Their retro-futuristic, dubstep-reminiscent synth-pop bops are premised on dreamy melodies, and their famous choreography and sets at shows are all about exploring the future and technology.

None


See them:

Weekend 1: Sunday, April 14 - 8:20 pm-9:10 pm at Gobi

Weekend 2: Sunday, April 21 - 8:20 pm-9:10 pm at Gobi

None


14. Sabrina Claudio


Sabrina Claudio serves emotional jazz-infused R&B-pop, good vibrations and extremely seductive vocals. The Miami-born, Puerto Rican-Cuban singer's 2018 No Rain, No Flowers is eight tracks of hypnosis, arriving after killer collabs with 6LACK and Khalid.

None


See her:

Weekend 1: Saturday, April 13 - 4:55 pm-5:40 pm at Coachella Stage

Weekend 2: Saturday, April 20 - 4:55 pm-5:40 pm at Coachella Stage

None


15. Ross From Friends


The British producer's (who's been called the Mac Demarco of house) gooey lo-fi house music, full of chimes, deliciously corny saxophone blurts and lovelorn spectral vocals, feels effortless and welcoming.

None

Weekend 1: Friday, April 12 - 1:45 pm-3:00 pm at Yuma

Weekend 2: Friday, April 19 - 1:45 pm-3:00 pm at Yuma

16. Kero Kero Bonito


London weirdos Kero Kero Bonito make glitchy, fluorescent, whimsical electro-pop, with nursery-rhyme cadence lyrics (sometimes in Japanese courtesy of frontwoman Sarah Midori Perry). Some of their songs sound like a high school cheer squad went wild with a synthesizer, but it's a good thing.

17. Burna Boy


Nigerian Afro-fusion rapper Burna Boy accidentally gained an audience when people confused his grooving single 2019 "Ye" with the iconic album of the same name, and it's been a happy accident: the biggest Nigerian artist of 2018 (Virgil Abloh and Nicki Minaj are fans) draws on dancehall and Afro-pop for his addictive and kaleidoscopic bangers.

Jacob Anderson Talks Diversity on 'Game of Thrones'http://www.mmkwk.tw/diversity-casting-game-of-thrones-2634459805.html

Game of Thrones is very white. That's the truth! Like most mainstream fantasy movies and TV shows, it features few Black actors in leading roles — and for no basically no reason that makes any clear sense. You can't exactly make "medieval historical accuracy" arguments when there are actual dragons breathing fire on screen, right?

None


Crucially, GoT does have some non-white cast members, and life is awkward for them when angry think pieces about the show's lack of PoC circulate every season. In a thoughtful interview with BuzzFeed's AM2DM host Saeed Jones, Jacob Anderson, who plays Grey Worm, said as much.

None


When asked whether he was pleased to see that the Game of Thrones prequel series will feature more diverse casting, Anderson said he was "really excited." Although he added that he was still "very proud" to have been part of the original show. "It's a weird thing," he said. "I think there are things that are touched on with Grey Worm... that speak on something to do with being othered in that kind of world. But yeah, it could have been better, you know?"

He went on to say that he and Natalie Emmanuel, who plays Missandei, are very aware of the show's diversity issues but also feel neglected when the conversation comes up: "I saw an article that was like, 'There are no Black people on Game of Thrones.' I can understand that impulse, but Natalie and I get erased from the conversation a lot. We get erased to strengthen an argument that doesn't need strengthening."

None


Something to keep in mind! Game of Thrones season six premieres next Wednesday.

Fashion FanFic: 5 Looks Kim Kardashian West, Esq. Should Wearhttp://www.mmkwk.tw/kim-kardashian-west-lawyer-outfits-2634453093.html

Kim Kardashian West's May Vogue cover story brought us several news items: firstly, the reality icon's garage is basically a Yeezy Boost closet, and secondly, she's studying to become a lawyer.

None


Kim has been studying nonstop for the bar, she told Vogue, and is currently apprenticing with attorneys Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney. Both mentors supervise her studies for 18 hours per week, preparing her to take the California bar in 2022. Kim said that while criminal law comes naturally to her, the reading load is intense and that "torts is the most confusing." She'll end up taking a mandatory California pre-bar test in summer 2019, which is intended to signal that a first year law student is on track to sit for the bar exam.

None


Confident that the fashion, TV, beauty — and lest we forget, music — mogul will pass the baby bar and go on to continue her studies for the next three years, we've taken the liberty of picking out a handful of sleek, uniquely KKW outfits for when the lawyer-to-be is ready to battle it out in the courtroom. While she could opt for a traditional pant suit, we know Kim's brand would ultimately suffer. A Ready-to-Wear S/S 2019 wardrobe that rivals even Elle Woods' is the only way to go at this point — anything else would just be libelous.

Off-white


Kim Kardashian West, Esq., the highest profile celebrity lawyer in Hidden Hills, struts into a buzzing courtroom. She passes shouting photogs and inquisitive reporters in this pale yellow-green ensemble from Off-White. She's prosecuting to the fullest extent of the law — and she keeps her legal pad in her chic fanny pack. Slay!

Max Mara


After an inevitable loss, Kim K can let those nosy paparazzo have it in this slinking, beige Max Mara trench coat and dress combo that says, "We'll be appealing. No further questions."

Balmain


This lacy, baby blue Balmain suit with a matching sheer top is perfect for days pouring over documents and meeting with clients. The hood also makes it easy to discreetly avoid the nagging fans on the street asking for selfies, because let's face it, you're a lawyer now. The only social media you have is LinkedIn!

Chanel


The logos on this Chanel getup are subtle enough that you'll still be able to secure that RTW S/S 2020 campaign, and bold enough to tell the opposing lawyer that you make a lot more money than them. It's got lots of pockets too, perfect for emergency snacks for last minute all-nighters.

Alexander McQueen


McQueen in the courtroom? Revolutionary. The cutouts on this pantsuit are so quintessentially Kim K. It's very much the daytime sister of the vintage Mugler gown she rocked earlier in February 2019. The summary judgment on this outfit? Case dismissed.

Mark Ronson's New Album Looks Legendaryhttp://www.mmkwk.tw/mark-ronson-late-night-feelings-2634451213.html

The Academy Award-winning — yes, that's right — producer and writer Mark Ronson just dropped the latest single from his upcoming album Late Night Feelings, and it's the big one. The title track, "Late Night Feelings," features dream-pop frontier Lykke Li and is a subdued, seductive bop.


None


Ronson has been hard at work post-Oscars, where he rightfully took home the award for Best Original Song, along with Lady Gaga, for the undeniable ballad of the year, "Shallow" from A Star Is Born. After the ceremony, and of course after snapping a pic with Mother Monster herself, Ronson returned to the studio to finish up his album post-success of its lead single "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" with vocals from Miley Cyrus.

The song explored disco motifs and packed less of a straightforward punch as Ronson's other famous pop hits. "Late Night Feelings" is equally as subdued as "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart," with each pluck and drum being quieted by a low-pass-like filter, making ample room for Li's vocals and production that follows her pace. Ronson wrote in his Editors' Notes on Apple Music that the track was the first song he really felt was "'pointing the way for the record.'" It's an exciting route for Ronson's production to take, after rising to fame from such production-heavy tracks like Amy Winehouse's "Rehab" and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk." While there is still an emphasis on some modern pop production techniques, the intrinsic rhythm within disco and decades-old iterations of pop is leading the way for Late Night Feelings.


None


Along with the new single comes the tracklist announcement for Ronson's new record. With collaborators like Camila Cabello, King Princess, and Alicia Keys, Late Night Feelings looks like it'll be an album to beat on the charts. Collaboration from artists creating outside of the radio airways are also notable, including a feature from vocal powerhouse YEBBA.

None


Late Night Feelings will drop in full on June 21, 2019, and will likely deliver several summer anthems to carry us through until the fall. You can pre-order the album now.

What's KJ Apa Listening To?http://www.mmkwk.tw/kj-apa-interview-fossil-crosley-2634435117.html

Riverdale's KJ Apa might technically be from New Zealand, but he's still an all-American classic. The 21-year-old actor plays quintessential comic book hero Archie on The CW's smash hit show, as the letter jacket-wearing good boy who gets tempted over to the dark side every now and then, but usually prevails. He's the perfect ambassador for Fossil's heritage style watches, and has been representing the brand for the past year.

None


In honor of National Record Store Day and Apa's new vinyl-themed campaign with Crosley x Fossil, PAPER asked him to take a break from filming the new season in Vancouver and tell us all about his favorite tunes.

None


What's the first music you remember listening to as a kid?

My dad drove me to school, and we listened to a lot of Santana and Steely Dan.

None


What were you listening to in high school?

The same music, but with Satriani and Van Halen added in, and probably whatever was popular at the time.

None


What do you listen to while driving these days?

Led Zeppelin, Steve Vai.

None


What do you listen to while working out?

Usually instrumental only, just a strong beat and very loud.

None

Best song to get a dance floor started?

That depends on the dance floor!

None


Best song to end the night?

Anything by Nick Drake or Dire Straits.

None


Do you tend to pick albums and make playlists, or trust algorithms?

I love listening to new sounds and am always open to friends' suggestions and being surprised by a random song on a playlist. I try not to have rules, that way I keep expanding my musical tastes.

None


Are you a vinyl collector? What do you look for when browsing?

Yes. I look for music I want to listen to and if the cover art is amazing, that's a bonus for the wall.

None


Any musical guilty pleasures?

Music can't be guilty, can it?

FEE LION Stuns With 'Blood Sisters'http://www.mmkwk.tw/fee-lion-blood-sisters-2634442489.html

The first beats of each song on FEE LION's new EP, Blood Sisters, are distinct thumps — generously caressed, pulsating beeps and clinks are linked together by deepened synths' sine waves and made new by her lingering lyricism. Her voice is echoing, just as demanding of listeners' attention as her spectacle-like performances where she dresses in intricately crafted latex ensembles and moves confidently to each beat.

None


FEE LION, also known as Justina Kairyte, has managed to develop a sound that is anything but comforting. Blood Sisters is a spiky, prickly, and haunting EP that alerts rather than comforts. Listeners might enter a trance-like state at parties where she performs, like "Bound" in NYC: the sounds explored on the EP are akin to that of some kind of active meditation; the songs employ sounds that excite, but rhythms that sedate.

None


There's a villainous quality to FEE LION's softened blows of techno pop. It manages to slip through the cracks of each word she utters, crafting difficult parse narrative that's best experienced yourself. Her futuristic take on a darkly omnipotent aesthetic makes FEE LION a standout in a genre that has been quickly increasing in popularity.

What was the concept behind the title of your EP, Blood Sisters?

I wrote the tracks on Blood Sisters over the span of almost two years. Initially, I wasn't focused on a motive or theme but as I spent more time with the tracks, a narrative started to form. I wrote "Blood Sisters" first, then months later was in the studio and came up with what is now the chorus of "My Man." "When I get the chance, I'll take it slowly...wash my hands...leave you on the ground." And instantly I was like, "Oh my god, this is slasher film material." The vision of the EP became this dark fantasy: the story of a mysterious murderess slaughtering her lover in order to step back into her own light. I wanted to emphasize the importance of getting rid of people that pull you down and finding your Blood Sisters — your family, your chosen family, the Judy's that have had your back since day one and would gladly help you bury the body.

None


How would you characterize your production techniques?

Figuring it all out as I go.

The instrumentation of each track is highly specific and dark. Personally, I can hear influences like Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' work for The Social Network. Does that happen to be one of the inspirations behind this EP?

I love Trent Reznor! Depeche Mode, Tzusing, TR/ST, D.A.F, Beta Evers, Ministry are always in heavy rotation.

None


There's a twisted romanticism to some of the themes of the EP. Where do you see these themes stemming from?

Throughout the entirety of the project I was struggling with my mental health and that had a large impact on the EP. To me, the EP is about self-love, because that's what I was searching for. I was experiencing a deep disconnect with myself and had to begin the journey of re-learning how to love myself, which can be so daunting! There were many, many days where I just didn't leave my bed, didn't leave the house and most definitely did not work on music. This wouldn't be the first time; I am actively working on finding the balance in my process.

None


"The EP is about self-love, because that's what I was searching for."

None


Is your writing process different from your producing process?

It all bleeds together and into my everyday life — sometimes the magic happens in my home studio but I've written full choruses in my voice memos while stuck in traffic. I'm working all the time, if not in the studio, in my head. "My Man" was the hardest track to finish in terms of production because I didn't feel the mood was right in one section. Even now i listen to that section and I'm like, "Hmm….I don't know about that." Definitely my own harshest critic!

None


What was your favorite part about constructing this EP over the two-year period since you began the project?

It's been a crazy ride. I have to say, although there were countless fun moments and discoveries behind the scenes of Blood Sisters, I think my favorite part is right now- being done. Being able to finally share everything is a giant weight off my shoulders. Feels amazing! Next.

Sonically, do you have a personal favorite moment on the EP?

My favorite track was "Blood Sisters" for a long time. Now though, "Heaven" is hands down my favorite song start to finish and the spooky mid-section of "My Man" is my favorite mood on the EP. I've spent a lot of time with each of these tracks from inception to birth and they mean everything to me. Some days though, I hate my entire body of work and want to scrap everything, shave my head and start a new life but that's all part of the process. Who knows, maybe my 2007 Britney moment is just around the corner.

4 Women Shaking Up the Beauty Industryhttp://www.mmkwk.tw/amanda-steele-siya-nour-tagouri-beautycon-nyc-2634141478.html

Beautycon NYC, the annual beauty convention that attracts thousands of beauty fanatics from across the country, opened last week to a large crowd at the Javits Centre. Amidst the numerous brands showcasing their products, were star appearances by the likes of Regina Hall, Issa Rae, Rick Ross, and Amanda Steele.

None


The biggest highlight of the two-day event, however, was an appearance by Cardi B. Although the rapper arrived a few hours later than her scheduled time (much to the dismay of the eagerly waiting fans), she quickly made up for it with an incredible performance, followed by a fireside chat moderated by Beautycon CEO Moj Mahdara.

None

While candidly dishing financial advice about managing money and equal pay for women, Cardi B said, "Do you know how many people's bills I pay? Like 10. Always take a business class because what you go to college for might not be what you end up pursuing. I get paid equally because as I came up I've seen male rappers and we would do shows together and I asked, 'Why is this man making more money than me?'"

None


Over the past five years, Beautycon has evolved into an integral platform for not just beauty brands looking to expand their reach, but also to address issues including diversity and inclusivity in the industry. This season of the convention was no different in that sense, and included a number of panels focused on conversations about toxic masculinity, representation, and activism.

None


PAPER caught up with four dynamic women at Beautycon, who reflect on the rapidly evolving industry, the current state of representation, and rigid beauty standards.

?Amanda Steele (Actress, Blogger, and Model)


None


On Beautycon:

I always loved connecting with people online who did what I did, and had the same passions as me, so I wanted to be a part of any conversation that included that. Everything was so great. I've had great times with the event.

None


On inclusivity and representation:

I think we're going in the right direction, and whenever brands aren't as inclusive, we have millions of people that will call them out for it. That's a good spot to be in. A lot times there's just an older white guy at the top that makes the final decisions about everything, so there is always going to be that problem of addressing these issues and telling that person at the top that this is what we need to focus on. In that respect, the industry is not as good as we're hoping for it to be. But we're definitely moving in the right direction and this whole audience will not be silenced. People can't avoid it, it's only going to keep getting better.

None


On dismantling beauty standards:

Shade ranges are really big right now. It's not acceptable to only have certain colors available for people because that's not real life. What's great about makeup is that anyone can do it, and it makes people — who maybe don't fit in normally — feel like they belong to a certain place. So we should be able to have access to a range of shades and products for different types of skin. And I mean that in terms of the people we see in the ads promoting the foundations too. We should be able to see girls, boys, and non-binary people from all backgrounds wearing makeup. The same girl can't represent everyone that wears makeup. That's the farthest thing from the truth.

None


"What's great about makeup is that anyone can do it, and it makes people — who maybe don't fit in normally — feel like they belong to a certain place."

None


On being held back:

Definitely, women are suppressed. I don't have a normal job or a normal life as most other women might, so I don't have those kind of issues. As women, we can never get it right for other people. Either we're wearing too much makeup or look tired, or you're not presentable. People don't even know what they want from us.

None


On pushing for change:

I could be suppressed as well and people can make me feel that type of way, but I really do walk into every situation with confidence. I'm just going to demand respect in every situation and sure, everyone is going to judge you but just trust in yourself and love who you are. When you have that energy, no one is going to take that away from you.

None


Favorite brands and products:

I love the Charlotte Tilbury bronzer and the Tarte Shape Tape concealer. Aside from that, I've also been using Dior foundation, Laura Mercier setting powder and concealers.

None

Siya (Singer and Songwriter)


None


On Beautycon:

When Moj [Mahdara] came to me I was like, of course, why not? It's all about female empowerment. I love what she does as part of Beautycon; I love coming here seeing a bunch of women unite. I think it's dope, even if it is makeup and all this stuff that I don't use. It's still cool.

None


On inclusivity and representation:

I feel like it's kind of half-marketing and half-actual effort, but I think now a lot more women are being vocal. So it's pushing the needle in the right direction. So yeah, I feel like it's changing.

None


On dismantling beauty standards:

I feel like it shouldn't even boil down to beauty or your appearance, especially in the workplace. It should be about what you do, and how well you can do your job. A lot of women don't even get paid the way they should get paid, in such a male dominated industry. Male domination is all over the world and it's time to change that.

None


"Male domination is all over the world and it's time to change that."

None


On pushing for change:

We're doing it right now. Women are stepping forward, women are talking about it, they are not backing down. It's happening in front of everyone's eyes so they can't ignore it.

None


Favorite brands and products:

I love skincare. I mean, like the good stuff for your face and body. I like tea tree oil. But I think today I'm going to find a lot of brands and start trying stuff. I guess I have to find a new brand to fall in love with today. I need to find some hair products - that's what I'm gonna go look for.

None

Noor Tagouri (Activist, Journalist, and Motivational Speaker)


None


On Beautycon:

I think what Moj [Mahdara] is doing is really incredible. She's truly redefining beauty and helping to be a part of that movement, and I never would've dreamed of seeing something like this before. I just love her message so much and I think her work is so incredible. I was honored to be a part of it.

None


On inclusivity and representation:

I think that parallels how I feel about about diversity and inclusion, There's a difference between the two. There's diversity across campaigns, but inclusion is about having a seat at the table. There are some brands where women do have a seat at the table and then there's some people who're doing it for marketing. At the end of the day we want to be able to see ourselves represented properly, and I think that people can tell when it's authentic and genuine and when it's not.

None


"There's a difference between [diversity and inclusion]: There's diversity across campaigns, but inclusion is about having a seat at the table."

None


On dismantling beauty standards:

What bothered me the most were really just the original beauty standards from when I was growing up. I think it was always that you had to be tall, skinny, blonde, and blue eyed and that's what I grew up seeing. Not saying that that's not beautiful, of course but that was the standard that I saw because of what was represented in the media. Now I think we're changing that, and the spaces where that still exists, you can just choose not to partake, watch, or spend your money there.

None


On pushing for change:

We can bring about change by getting into those rooms and at the those tables. I think change happens when we're truly being inclusive by prioritizing it, being vocal about what we want and thinking about how we spend our dollars.

None

Nabela Noor (Influencer and Beauty Activist)


None


On Beautycon:

Whenever anybody wants to have important conversations about representation, diversity, or things that I'm passionate about, I want to be there and lend my voice in the best way possible. When Beautycon, and Dove asked for me to join their panel and talk about those things, to me it seemed like a no-brainer.

None


On inclusivity and representation:

I think that there are brands out there that are actually trying, and we have to applaud them for trying. Fenty Beauty is a brand that in its core believes in the power of representation and believes that we all deserve access. That's an example of how to do it right. There are, of course, a lot of beauty and fashion brands, where [representation] is a buzzword; It's a word to sell more things, it's not a word they actually believe in. I can tell when the imagery is still alienating people like me and bodies like mine. You can always tell when a brand or company is actually for you or if they're for the dollar. You'll feel it, you'll see it; it's going to be in the marketing; it's going to be in the approach and language; and it's going to be in the supply. There are a lot of brands out there — fashion brands particularly — that don't have my size. They don't want to welcome people like me, yet they'll use words like inclusive and diverse. You're using those words to serve you, not to serve the people.

None


On dismantling beauty standards:

In the world of body confidence, even in the plus size space, there's still a specific look that you're supposed to meet. So you're supposed to have a small face, but wide thighs, wider hips, and that hourglass figure. Even in the plus-size world, it's not truly reflective of everyone. It's still this curated, aesthetics-driven space. That can be really tough because when you're watching for plus-size people in imagery and campaigns, you notice that they're still cherry picking how they want plus-size figures to appear. That's still sending a harmful message to people. My biggest wish is that brands, companies, the entertainment industry, and anyone that has the opportunity to, can give people an accurate depiction of what the world looks like today. The average American woman is about a size 14, so where is she in our magazines, where is she in our movies, where is she on our runways, where is she? I don't feel like I see her anywhere. If anything, I feel like whenever I see a girl like me in the media they're represented as the butt of a joke, with their weight or their eating as the punchline. It's still very rare to see somebody like me in the fashion space and when I do, I try to support them and lend my voice but it's very tough. There's still a lot to do.

None


"Even in the plus-size world, it's still this curated, aesthetics-driven space."

None


On pushing for change:

Support individuals that you admire and that you feel are representative of the world we live in today; someone that is diverse, and that you want to put your dollar behind. We have the opportunity to uplift people and put our money in what we believe in. When your favorite person that you follow online launches something, support it. You have the opportunity to really shift the industry. That is how the industry will then follow and be like, 'Wait a second, this is what the people want and this is what we're giving them.' There's a difference here.

None


Favorite brands and products:

There are so many brands that I know and love that are doing it right and making effort and strides. I love both Fenty Beauty and Too Faced. In terms of fashion and clothing, I love Eloquii; they actually partnered with Beautycon this year so they have a really amazing line and collaboration. I feel like I have access with a brand like that, which is amazing. It's really nice when I can go shopping and have something that's trendy and cute and not just a piece of cloth because I'm a bigger size.

Lily Collins: Hollywood's Angelhttp://www.mmkwk.tw/lily-collins-les-miserables-bbc-2634129324.html

Ahead of playing one of the biggest parts of her career — Fantine in BBC's upcoming Les Misérables — we cast Lily Collins in a new role as a mythical angel of Hollywood, flitting unseen through the streets of Los Angeles while giving young, starry-eyed hopefuls some divine inspiration.

None


Lily Collins isn't the type of person who relishes downtime. So in 2016, when the actress saw an unusually blank stretch in front of her work-wise, she decided to fill it by writing her first memoir. She set up six months of intense deadlines, but "of course, as luck would have it, the second that I got these deadlines and a publisher and editor, I booked three [acting] projects back to back," Collins says. "So, what was going to be my Sex in the City / Carrie Bradshaw / move to New York and write a book moment then [became] writing in and out of LA on sets. It turned out to be one of the proudest accomplishments, but also one of the hardest things I've ever done."

The end result was last year's Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me, a well-received collection of honest, introspective essays reflecting on life as the daughter of a megastar father (Phil Collins of Genesis and solo fame); growing up in LA after moving from England following her parents' divorce; dating and her longtime struggle with an eating disorder. The book's release was timed with her starring turn in To the Bone, a Netflix film about a woman battling anorexia that earned Collins rave reviews but also had her preparing for the physically and emotionally daunting role while digging into her own past. "I felt like I needed to unload some baggage in order to move forward on a clean slate," she says. "It just so happened to be before I turned 30, which was wonderful to go into that next phase of my life, but it was also something I knew personally and also professionally needed to happen."

None


None


Writing a soul-searching memoir while starring in a wrenching drama is pretty indicative of Collins's overachiever nature. Her famous last name might have opened some doors — which she's been candid about her whole career — but it's clear there's a gritty determination that's never allowed the diminutive brunette to rest on her laurels. Take, for example, when she was aiming to launch a career as a TV host and reporter while a student at the University of Southern California. She was sent to cover President Obama's 2009 inauguration on one of the coldest days on record in Washington D.C. — and got actual frostbite in the process. "I was literally freezing," she says. "I was under 10 of those silver blankets that make you warm and my feet got so cold I had minor frostbite and the next day on the flight home I was in so much pain... I had to wear flip flops because I couldn't fit into my shoes because they were so swollen."

None


"People are going to have opinions on who these characters should be [...] you're never going to be everyone's perfect version."

None


Her toes stayed intact after that frigid day, but the Golden Globe Award-nominated actress (for 2016's Rules Don't Apply) found herself freezing again in the streets of Brussels this past winter for one of the biggest roles of her career. Collins takes on the iconic part of downtrodden Fantine in the upcoming BBC adaptation of Les Misérables, also starring Olivia Colman, David Oyelowo and Dominic West, which will reach American audiences this spring. "It was mental," she says of the five-month shoot in Belgium. "It was, at one point, I think minus 13 [degrees]. I was out in the streets. They filmed the end of [Fantine's] life first because it had to go chronologically in terms of weather — from winter to summer — and the end of Fantine's life happens in the winter. My second day of filming I had to die. And I worked my way back — literally raised her from the dead."

Taking on one of the most coveted roles in the world for a young actress was a feat not lost on Collins, especially given the intense emotional attachment Les Mis fans feel to the story. But when asked if she felt any nerves on how superfans might receive the six-part non-musical, she appears pretty even-keeled. "People are going to have opinions on who these characters should be and how they should act," she says, "and you're never going to be everyone's perfect version of these things. [Les Mis director] Tom [Shankland] was a huge advocate for me of bringing me."

None


That blend of Collins's personal journey and the willingness to deep-dive into the lives of the characters she plays continues to serve her well as her career thrives. Shortly after Les Mis premieres, fans will see Collins in Tolkien, the much-anticipated biopic about the legendary author that sees the actress playing J.R.R. Tolkien's wife. In the meantime, though, she's already laying the groundwork for another memoir. "I'm constantly taking notes and adding to the file for number two," she says. "[I'm] having conversations with friends where I go, 'Oh my god, this is amazing. Wait a second. Please hold. Don't think I'm being rude. I just need to make this note because I don't want to forget anything.'"

Nikita Dragun Wants You to Live Your Fantasyhttp://www.mmkwk.tw/nikita-dragun-beauty-interview-2632977679.html

Nikta Dragun has built a reputation off her transformative makeup tutorials and relatable life advice. But when the influencer posted a video in response to transphobic remarks by Victoria's Secret's then Chief Marketing Officer Ed Razek, it went viral, making her an integral voice for the transgender community.

None


The YouTuber and beauty expert, who has been candid about her experience of being a trans woman, routinely talks about the lack of representation in the beauty industry at large — a discourse that resonates and reflects within her millions of engaged followers (2.1 million on YouTube and 4.1 million on Instagram, to be exact).

None


So it's no surprise that when the influencer debuted Dragun Beauty, one of the first beauty brands owned by and made for trans people, the full line ended up selling out within a single night. "Brb, gonna go lay some more Dragun Eggs," she wrote on Instagram to celebrate the massive success.

None


None


Dragun Beauty is currently limited to a color corrector and a face powder, both of which are truly "transformative," she says. This fantasy comes wrapped in a purple dragon egg — her signature packaging — and includes both the DragunFire Skin Perfecting Potion and The DragunHeart Transformation Powder. All items are vegan and cruelty-free, which is also part of the reason the influencer chose to launch her brand independently.

None


The "fantasy" Dragun consistently refers to has been a vital part of her platform since coming out online as trans three years ago. Once simply a beauty-focused YouTube channel, Dragun's authentic approach to addressing the lack of diversity in her industry has quickly pushed her to global ubiquity.

None


Today, Nikita Dragun announces she's restocking Dragun Beauty products, much to her fans' delight. The burgeoning entrepreneur recently sat down with PAPER to talk about manifesting her fantasy into a beauty brand, the idea behind all her products and the lack of representation within beauty.

None


None


Where did the idea for Dragun Beauty come from?

Starting a beauty brand was never my super fantasy because I had seen such a saturated market. We see so many Instagram gurus doing beauty collaborations and coming out with a lipstick or a basic ass eyeshadow. And I've been approached by every brand you can think of to just slap my name onto something, but I never really stood behind the product itself. I wanted to be passionate about it and I felt like I wanted to do something different. So I decided to put my big girl panties on and have a boss up moment. I knew that these big conglomerate brands coming to me would never approve of this idea that I had about being a trans-owned brand for trans people and for all people. I can't for sure say I'm the first, but I'd like to think I'm one of the pioneers right now in terms of the beauty space.

None


Were there any products you were particularly excited about creating?

I wanted to create a color corrector, which was very important to me in my transition... correcting my five 'o' clock shadow, my under eye bags and my hyper-pigmentation because I'm ethnic. It also corrects hickeys and bruises and all sorts of crazies from a night out.

None


It's a step that's a primer to the primer — the step that a lot of people are missing in their makeup routine and so it's not really replacing anything; it's not a new product, for sure. But at the same time, have I mastered and perfected this product? Have I formulated it to its best possible quality with amazing ingredients like Shea Butter, vitamin A, vitamin E, and all sorts of ingredients? Is it the top of the line? Have I done the work to educate people? Absolutely.

None


So I encapsulated this into a transformation egg — the tongue-in-cheek is TRANSformation. Because this is something that I wanted as a kid that I could have given myself three years ago or to a friend, or to someone who was transitioning. These are products that are truly transformative, and on that same token, my transformation face powders are very hammer and nail of the beauty routine. I use makeup not only for artistry, but for the transformation aspect.

None


"I just want people to have the opportunity to live their fantasy."

None


What sort of research did you need to do to perfect these looks?

I've spent so long studying the male and female faces, and how they differed. I would look at human anatomy books and see how the light hits a man's face versus a woman's face, and that's really what it all came down to. So I wanted a product that could cheat that in terms of feminizing my face. I was able to create these brightening powders that basically create these face filters on the skin. It's not a highlighter, there's no sort of iridescence to it at all. It's a truly transformation face powder that you apply under your eyes, down your nose, center of your forehead, your chin, and that just gives you this instant spotlight effect. Anywhere you are, any lighting you're in, it always looks like you're glowing. But it's not a shimmery product. So I guess I had this crazy idea and no one fucking stopped me. Anyone can live their life, but not anyone can live their fantasy and I just want people to have the opportunity to live their fantasy.

None


Have you had this idea for a while?

I had the idea for a very long time in terms of the products that I've always wanted to see in the beauty industry. I never thought that I would be the person to create that. I feel like I'm a part of this group of people that is not necessarily being served to. I felt like there were certain products that I needed in terms of feminizing my face and there wasn't anything like that. So I had to step up and have that moment. It was obviously a vision of mine and a far-fetched thing of living this dream of having my own brand. But I never thought I'd have the opportunity to do this 100 percent on my own, or have this be 100 percent my vision, from the packaging to the formulas to the label to the text that's on the back of the sticker. It's a lot of pressure, especially at this young age.


None


After the Victoria's Secret viral moment that I had, I realized that the world hasn't seen a trans person in this light. It's not my job to be going crazy for my community, but at the same time I feel like I do owe it to do something with my platform other than take selfies and do nothing with five million followers.

None


None


Clearly, there's a big market out there for the products you've created, but why do you think other mega brands have failed to cater to it?

Because it is a niche market, people are always weary. We're just getting into the age now in the beauty world where we're starting to be inclusive of skin tones and skin colors, which is outrageous. In terms of the beauty industry, things are dated. My brand and the vision behind it was to create something different that the world has seen — to create a beacon of hope, but also to create really great products for my community. These are products for an everyday girl, these are products for a boy, these are products for literally everyone. I do want to address my community because it is under served, and we constantly get a door slammed in our face. The Victoria's Secret moment was just one instance.

None


To have people stand up and to have such a movement behind it just really shows that the world is changing. It's so foolish for brands not to come up to the times and to think that, This is not a mass market that we can sell to or this is not going to make our sales. It's ridiculous. I'm hopefully changing that. I'm like, You guys have been on the snooze for too long.

None


"Anyone who's behind the times is going to be left behind, so get with the future."

None


The beauty industry is starting to make diversity and inclusivity a big part of the conversation. But it often feels inauthentic. Do you think a lot of it is just marketing or is it genuine?

I do think sometimes they try to get a token in terms of like, We need an ethnic girl or we need a plus-size girl, we need a trans model. So in some cases, it's about checking the box. We see that in every industry. Is it maybe for the right or wrong reasons? We can't necessarily say that. But I'm excited to be a trans-owned brand serving to my people and to everyone.

None


Maybe these brands are doing it just to check the box, but at the same time at least something is being done — at least they do feel the pressure. And in this day and age, my generation can sniff bullshit and we can sniff authenticity in a second. That's what's so hard for these bigger brands to understand. They're constantly like, Why can't we get sales from this market, why are they not buying anything, why are they not owning cars, why are they not owning houses? It's a constant new age versus old age debate, what we always see with technology and social media. Anyone who's behind the times is going to be left behind, so get with the future.

None


None


Over the years, in what way have you felt marginalized by the beauty industry?

Well, in a couple different ways. Experiencing two different lives growing up as a little boy in Springfield, Virginia, I always wanted to become more of myself and I've always been a woman on the inside. Even walking into major makeup departments I felt like I was marginalized by being a male at the time trying to buy makeup.


None


Having that thing of, Makeup is only for women... that was the biggest thing for the longest time. There was also the part about being from an ethnic background. I'm not super pale, so sometimes not having my right undertones, not having my skin tones, not having things that cater to my specific needs was an issue. Even today, I do feel marginalized in terms of being a trans person, and a woman in general, just feeling like I don't have these products that I definitely need.

None


Have you seen improvements?

Over the years, things have gotten so much better. I'm excited for the beauty industry and I'm obviously just a big fan. At the end of the day, I don't think it's a competition at all. I'm a beauty connoisseur and I'm a beauty lover, so I'm hopeful for this space. Ultimately the idea of beauty is this idea that beauty comes from within and all sorts of cliché stuff. But at the end of the day, it's makeup. It comes off. It wipes off your face. With all the craziness in the world, beauty should be the one space that shouldn't have any type of marginalization or any kind of status quo. it's a space that's supposed to be beautiful, and what makes everyone beautiful is their unique qualities. So everyone should be celebrated for their own unique individual beauty.

None


"My generation can sniff bullshit and we can sniff authenticity in a second."

None


Do you have any beauty icons that you look up to?

Yes, Selena QuintanillaBidi bidi bom bom — hit the floor with that red lipstick,and purple jumpsuit! I'm from a Mexican heritage, so obviously being biracial is a whole different topic but I think she represented being such a powerful woman in the industry. I also always loved my classic beauties like Marilyn Monroe, because she was able to create this Norma Jean fantasy. I feel like that's what I've created over the years with Nikita Dragun: this dragon energy. Also I've had so many important women in my life. Obviously my mother and my grandmother were glamazons and taught me beauty in different ways. I think a woman looks beautiful when she comes back home to her kids after a 10-hour shift at her job. I truly find beauty in so many different ways.

None


Why was the line limited to four products?

It was limited because, first of all it's 100 percent me and I don't have that crazy amount of budget to just drop 20 million products, but also I really felt it was important to keep it very singular and focused to what I wanted to do. This is a transformation kit. By having those other basic products — which eventually I will get into — I just wanted to focus on one key thing for my first launch. I wanted to have people die over the egg moment.

None


None


What are your favorite beauty brands or products?

I love everything that Fenty beauty has done in terms of their inclusivity and Rihanna's idea of wanting to be inclusive of all skin tones — creating that loud noise in the beauty industry. I also appreciate Kylie Cosmetics for her entrepreneurship in terms of how she was able to market her brand. I think she has set up a great business model in the way she is now considered a self-made billionaire. Having these strong women and seeing something disruptive and different in the beauty space is what's amazing.

None


Do you have a skincare routine?

I think skincare is the fundamental of everything. I keep it very basic. It's all about taking care of my skin after the makeup; I feel like that's important for me. I learned this new two-step system from Asia where you do a cleansing oil or cleansing balm and then you do a real cleanser, so I've been trying to be good about moisturizing — moisturizing my neck, my ass, my hands, all about it. That's my biggest thing.

None


"Having these strong women and seeing something disruptive and different in the beauty space is what's amazing."

None


So you don't have like a 17-step intensive routine?

No I don't. I wish I did. I'm jealous and envious of people like that. My skincare is very simple. It's like two cleansers, one to take off makeup and one to really wash my face. I obviously do my serums, essences, and eye creams and my moisturizers, but nothing too extraneous.

None


Outside of Dragun Beauty, do you have a go-to product?

I love African Black Soap. I think it's really great in terms of its cleaning properties if you're able to find the right kind. I really appreciate it especially because I get a lot of body acne. I also really like witch hazel. As much as I can, I try to stick to more natural things.

None


None


You also mentioned that you'll probably be adding more products to your line. Is that true?

100 percent I'm adding more. I want a full line eventually, but for now I'm focusing on a diverse range of things that we hadn't seen in the beauty industry and that are gonna go in line with my idea of transformation. I'm like, Girl, I've got plenty of eggs in the works, it's crazy. I'm actually so excited — not that I'm more excited for the egg, but it goes with the whole theme so I'm excited it's coming back.

None


Were you expecting the collection to sell out so quickly?

It's something that you hope for. But I ordered a lot of units because I hate when people go on sold out just to say they sold out. I feel like customers get so annoyed. I just wanted to have enough, but obviously still didn't. I've never put my name on a makeup product so I didn't know what I could sell or how I could sell it. It was very surprising but I'm super excited about it.

None


Would you be open to a collaboration in the future?

Yes! Now that I have my own brand, some of my friends have come out of the woodwork being like, I would love to do a collab.

None

Kylie Jenner: Get Rich or Die Followinghttp://www.mmkwk.tw/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.
