Our Mother Lana Del Rey is back! #SadGirlSummer

I was wondering why this summer didn't have the same reckless self-importance and melancholic feel as our usual summers. We were missing Lana Del Rey's usual #sadgirlsummer bop.

Watch the Doin' Time music video here:
We love our seasonally depressed queen!

Lana Del Rey and the Language of the Violent Image
This month has been a slew of sexual assault cases, with Eminem threatening Iggy Azalea and now a mysterious film project starring Lana Del Rey being brutally raped. The project was directed by notoriously nasty Eli Roth and stars both Lana Del Rey and clips of old videos from Marilyn Manson - who was originally accused of directing the film himself! The bizarre video shows these Manson videos mixed a disturbing scene of Roth physically attacking and sexually assaulting Del Rey. Manson's team has since confirmed that Manson wasn't involved and that it was "likely a fan tinkering with his music video scenes." Like anything taken out of context, it is hard to judge the message of Eli Roth's film based on these few clips (which have since been removed from the internet) but based on his previous work, this project will be inching towards the 'Hollywood torture porn' genre as Jessica Hopper of Pitchfork puts it. Lana Del Rey's entire persona is based off of playing on the traditional American idea of women - being glamorous, vulnerable, and meek. Her music and art so clearly ties back to and plays with all of these ideals (If you haven't seen her video for National Anthem, check it out now) so to have her be raped on film - evening if she was acting - is especially disturbing. Roth is just another man portraying the sexual abuse of women through a man's eyes. Why he chose to use a leading symbol of traditional femininity is something I think the entire music community is waiting for. So far, Roth and Del Rey haven't commented on the situation.
Makeup Artist Draws Kim Kardashian On Her Chin
If you think Michael Jordan crying meme is hilarious, the Kim Kardashian one is twice as funny. As much as we love Kim K, she will never get out of this one -- ever. Let's be honest, her cry was monumental and quite hideous -- then again, who really has a lovely looking smile anyway? While Michael Jordan has been getting the most shine lately for his crying meme, it didn't take long before someone came along and put the infamous Kim Kardashian meme on the map. You've seen it on blogs, you've seen it on cellphones, and you've even seen it on shirts, but have you ever seen it on someone's chin? If not, today happens to be your lucky day. A talented makeup artist decided it would be cool if she drew cry baby Kim on her chin and believe it or not, it actually came out looking rather amazing. You cannot tell me that makeup is not a form of art. Laura Jenkinson is a makeup artist known for recreating images on her chin using her ever so amazing makeup skills and if you thought this was pretty awesome, just wait until you see her Donald Trump drawing -- yikes. In the meantime, keep scrolling and check out the images below. How epic is this? Looks just like Kim. Seriously. Of course, you can't have Kim without Kylie and her new lips. Amazing! Looks just like Jay-Z. Big lips and all. He has that same sinister look he always has on his face. Donald Gump. Ooops, I mean't Trump. Hey Everyone, look it's Finn from Adventure Time! And of course, I had to save the best for last and for @alywoah. Tacos! How amazingly odd are these works of art?
