Read Three Poems From Sarah Blake’s “Unauthorized Lyric Biography of Kanye West”

Sarah Blake‘s new book of poetry, Mr. West, is an “unauthorized lyric biography of Kayne West,” where the rapper serves as the muse for Blake’s poetry.

The Steep Inclines, and Ultimate Decline, in Most Celebrity Journeys: Links You Need to See

This was a weird year. In a way, every year is weird — taking 365 days, grouping them all together, and analyzing them collectively will always result in weird, outlier-ridden statistics. And yet, the fact of the matter is that public figures as fundamentally different as Scott Stapp, Kim Kardashian, and Meghan Trainor all had some cultural weight this year. … Read More

Poppy Fields, North West’s Wardrobe, and Twin Baby Elephants: Links You Need to See

Even by the standards of a year that’s been singularly depressing, this has been a dismal day for news — between the horrors of the CIA torture report, the ongoing UVA/Rolling Stone debacle and the fact that New Found Glory are releasing a Christmas song, there’s been nothing but misery on the web.
