How To Look As Cool As Justin Timberlake in Mirrors #2 - The Hairstyle
GQ asked master hair stylist Jordan Blackmore for opinions on how to create the awesome new hair-do of Justin Timberlake and this is his answer. Follow closely, folks. To get this baller hairstyle, you need some mad blow drying skills. That sort of wizardry is best left to the pros—JT's got enough cheddar to pay a stylist daily. That said, this is hair worth fighting for. If he can bring sexy back, you can learn to operate a blow dryer. Tools: Twin Turbo Blow dryer Denman Round Brush Oribe Maximista Thickening Hair Spray Murray's Original Pomade Directions: 1. Get Dirty: "Start with wet, unshampooed hair—sometimes dirtier can be better for styling." 2. Max Out: "Towel dry your hair, pump on about six sprays of Maximista, and comb through to distribute evenly." 3. Blow On It: "For the sides and the back, blow dry it forwards and down. For the top, start at the hairline, pull the hair straight towards the ceiling using a round brush, and blow dry it north. You want to make your hair big like Albert Einstein, because you can always get it to be small through gravity and product." 4. Comb On Over: "If you're going to part on the left side, pull the hair right with the round brush and blow dry. Creating tension with the comb is the most important thing—you're removing moisture and teaching your hair to be straight." 5. Shape Up: "After your hair's thoroughly dry, use Murray's to fatten your follicle up and shape everything together. If you've got a good hairline like Justin, you want a lot of lift in the front—it'll give you that really polished Gatsby look."—Jordan Blackmore Additional Material: Your hairline determines the shape of your 'do. Here, Blackmore's holy trinity of the side part. Find your type and get to work. Source: http://www.gq.com/style/blogs/the-gq-eye/2013/03/steal-justin-timberlakes-new-haircut.html#ixzz2O8ywsx9v
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.
6 John Lennon Quotes To Honor A True Revolutionary
Today marks the day that legendary John Lennon was murdered and @tessstevens wrote an amazing card honoring him that you can read here! John Lennon has been a staple in my house since I can remember. In fact, my Dad told me that on the day Lennon died he cried hysterically and since then has hated the book Catcher In The Rye (which was held by the shooter). It was very awkward when I had to read it in high school. But in honor of John Lennon, here are some of his most famous (yet still amazingly revenant) quotes that will live in infamy. This is my all time favorite quote. Because it really shouldn't matter what you are doing or where you are in life. As long as you are happy, then everything really is okay. "All you need is love" right? It might not work out, it might not be your only love, and it might not be the right love, but at any point in your life love is always a blessing. Speaking of love, they only way to find perfect, lasting love is to first find a way to be happy by yourself. Looking for happiness in another person will only leave you feeling empty. Bombs, beheadings, and blood are scattered across the screens. We look refugees fleeing war in the face and turn our backs. Yet god forbid someone posts a nipple on social media. Thank you John Lennon, for validating my existence and reminding everyone that being weird is what makes you special. And the words that will get me through any hard time, if I am not happy, it is not the end.
5 Lyrics That'll Make You Think Twice About Giving Up On Love
Music is often a direct link to the soul, and I know of a lot of lyrics that have made me think twice about giving up on love. I've been so disheartened by people, and situations in the past, that I have strongly considered just living a life of solitude. But you know what, that's a childish way to deal with your emotions. As I get older, I'm starting to realize that human interaction is way more important than I used to think it was. Life isn't about the things you have, it's about the people you share it with. It's about the love you cultivate. Yes things get hard, and the road can be long to finding happiness, but you know what, if it's worth it...the right person will come. So sit back and read some of my favorite lyrics. They inspire me every day to try and keep going. 1. “Stand up beside the fireplace/ take that look from off your face/ You ain’t ever gonna burn my heart out.” - Oasis / Don't Look Back In Anger If we can admit to ourselves that we can stay strong despite the things that happen to us in love, or otherwise, we can open ourselves up to new, better relationships right? We can't let anyone take our power. Love isn't about that, it's about sharing the power, and growing together. 2. "You say your heart ain't ever been broken / you think you know where you're going. You say this life hasn't given you nothin'/ you've got another thing coming." - The Killers / Tidal Wave If you haven't been in a relationship, and you don't think you know anything about love, and don't want to...it's easy to get jaded, but don't give up. Because somewhere out there is the perfect person to teach you all you need to know. 3. "Darkness comes and I will/ Sing you a song / I will love you forever / Or at least till morning comes." - Lady Don't You Fall Backwards / Peter Doherty Sometimes love is temporary, but that's what makes it exciting. There is finite time for some of us with others. It's just a part of the exquisite pain of being in love and dealing with falling out of it. 4. "I'm in love for the first time/ Don't you know it's gonna last?/ It's a love that lasts forever/ It's a love that had no past." - Don't Let Me Down / The Beatles We often put a lot of pressure on our relationships, we think they'll end in marriage or commitment of another kind, but you know what, that's not always the case. But that's no reason to give up on love. The nature of it is wonderful because for the moment, if we're in love, we have that feeling forever, whether the person leaves or not. There's something eternal about it. 5. "You are what you love / not who loves you." Fall Out Boy - Save Rock and Roll We all must remember though, that love isn't always about people. Sometimes it's about the things we love, our passions and hobbies. Sometimes it's about our families. Remember: Love does not have a definition or an expectation. It merely exists in the people we spend time with and the interests we hold dear.
Lana Del Rey for New Tim Burton Movie!
I am such a Tim Burton fangirl, guys. If he makes it, I'll watch it! His trademark kooky-creepy-lovely aesthetic is definitely a big reason, along with the inevitable casting of Helen Bonham Carter and/or Johnny Depp. I'll never get tired of them doing Tim Burton! But I have to say, one of my favorite aspects of Tim Burton movies is the music. Burton is known (as with the casting) for having favorite collaborations, and one of his most perennially successful partnerships is with composer Danny Elfman. I don't know if anyone can harness "magical," "whimsical" and "creepy" quite as beautifully and inventively as he can. I was pretty psyched to hear that he's also doing the soundtrack for Burton's latest movie, "Big Eyes." This one is a little different than his usual, it looks like - it is the true story of artist Margaret Keane and her struggles against her husband, who claimed her works portraying big-eyed girls were his own. What I found a little strange is that the title song is written not by Elfman, it seems - but by Lana Del Rey, who is also performing the song. I like the song, which was just released in a lyric video preview (attached here). I'm not sure, however, that it has quite the impact of some of my favorite Elfman pieces. People are already asking whether it will be big enough for an Oscar nomination. I have to say I'm not completely blown away - but I did enjoy it. What do you think? Do you like the song on its own? Is it worthy to stand beside Elfman's music?
