‘Paper’ Magazine Founder David Hershkovits on Kim Kardashian’s Internet-Breaking Cover: “It’s Almost Like Israel and Palestine”

Kim Kardashian has appeared on magazine covers nude before. But this week, when Paper Magazine positioned Kim K ass-first on its Winter 2014 issue under the tagline “Break the Internet,” the world took the command seriously — for better and for worse. For a magazine that routinely places movie and music stars on its covers, the Jean-Paul Goude photographs of Kardashian are some of Paper‘s finest visual work. But for a 30-year-old print publication trying to sell its downtown Manhattan view of the arts to an Internet overloaded with pop culture, the Kim K cover was an inspired jackpot. … Read More

Last Week Was a No-Good, Very Bad Week for Misogyny in the Music Industry

Six months ago, Future was on the top of the world: a son on the way with fiancée Ciara, sophomore album Honest garnering critical praise, and a new song with Kanye in which he brags about both. “I Won (Trophy)” positioned Ciara and Mrs. West herself, Kim Kardashian, as trophy wives to be shown off for their physical assets, rather than their numerous professional or personal accomplishments. It was gross, though the fuckboys I saw praising it on Twitter didn’t seem to think so. Flash forward to last week, when Future emerged with an even grosser ode to female anatomy, “Pussy Overrated.” … Read More

10 Musicians You Never Knew Had Their Own TV Shows

The folk at Dangerous Minds specialize in unearthing fascinating obscurities from the depths of the Internet, but they outdid themselves this week by finding a clip from a pilot for a sitcom Kraftwerk made in the early 1970s, circa The Man-Machine. The spectacle of what must surely be the strangest TV show you’ve seen in quite some time got us thinking about other musicians’ curious TV ventures — so here are ten of the most weird and wonderful, from Snoop’s sketch comedies to New Kids on the Block not playing themselves in their own… Read More

Witty Vintage-Style Ads Starring Contemporary Music Icons

There’s just a week and a half left before the new Mad Men season rolls out, but in case the ’60s-style withdrawal is too much to bear, Ads Libitum has the graphic design beat covered. Run by David Redon, the Tumblr has been posting faux-aged ads starring pop culture figures from the last two decades since July 2013. Redon’s favorite subject is musicians, but the full site has a spot for Breaking Bad‘s Pollos Hermanos as well. Click through for thoroughly retro renditions of OutKast, Missy Elliott, Snoop Dogg, and more. … Read More

Who Is Dâm-Funk? An Introduction to Snoop’s Newest Partner in Rhyme

Today sees the release of Seven Days of Funk, the gloriously funkified album by Snoop Dogg (or Snoopzilla, as he’s calling himself at the moment) and Flavorwire favorite Dâm-Funk. Snoop clearly needs no introduction, but this is definitely the most prominent release of Dâm-Funk’s career, and one that will doubtless be introducing him to a new audience. For all that his career has been on the up-and-up since signing to Stones Throw in 2008, Mr. Funk has been around for a long time — he started making music way back in 1988, which means there’s a whole lot of early material to explore. Join us for a deep dive into his funktastic back catalog. … Read More
