In case you didn’t pick up a copy of VMan Magazine, here’s what you missed in their interview with their cover man Jake Gyllenhaal.
1) He often gets so into character on set that he’ll react to things in a way that wasn’t even scripted.
2) Hollywood is a family business to him: Jake’s dad is a director, his mom is a screenwriter, and his sister is also an actor!
3) He tries not to take on movie roles too often so that viewers don’t view him as an actor. It’s important to him that the viewers can really relate to him as the character he’s playing.
4) Jake uses movie roles to “explore the unfiltered recesses of his mind” and express the many aspects of his own personality.
5) He wants to be considered a “great” actor. “More than rich, and more than famous, and more than happy–I [want] to be great.”
Sevyn Streeter has quite a voice, which is proven in her song “It Won’t Stop,” featuring Chris Brown. She recently released her debut EP “Call Me Crazy.” Not only does she have incredible singing talent she also has written songs for infamous artists like Alicia Keys, Kelly Rowland and Fantasia. Her voice has a delicacy that meshes perfectly with Brown’s. She previously released “It Won’t Stop” and then she remixed it with Chris Brown.
The terms “retro” and “vintage” seem to be used pretty much interchangeably these days. However, there’s actually a huge difference.
When we asked around, everyone had their own way of differentiating between the two words:
“Vintage means from a different century”…
“Retro is if it’s decor and vintage is clothing”…
“It’s only vintage if it comes with a certificate”…
Sounds like everybody is a little confused, so we did the research and got to the bottom of the mystery.
Officially, “vintage” refers to anything made between 20 and 100 years ago. (After 100 years it becomes an “antique.”) So something made in 1995 might be outdated, but it’s not yet vintage. (Sidenote: Most people in the vintage industry aren’t really considering the 90′s a vintage era yet, at all.)
So then what’s “retro”?
“Retro” refers to pieces that are made in the modern era with a vintage flare. So “retro” things aren’t actually old, they just look like it. An example of this would be Ray Ban sunglasses that are manufactured today with vintage inspiration, or Macy’s Material Girl line that has many 80′s inspired pieces. These items weren’t actually made back then–they’re brand new–but they have a vintage look to them.
Glad that’s settled.
Creativity and uniqueness were two key elements that came into play for designer bags this year at Fashion Week. From Fendi to Chanel, we saw take out boxes, shopping baskets, and even a mini Karl Lagerfeld. These accessories added a bold twist to the designer’s collections and was like nothing we’ve seen before.
A huge trend that kicked off in 2014 was women suited up in stylish designer suits and looking fabulous. The simplistic look brought style and grace to the runway. Celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres, Madonna, and Kourtney Kardashian also took in this trend and did it well wearing Saint Laurent. A feminine tuxedo with an oversized tie, or a feminine tuxedo with no under shirt, seemed to be the look most designers went for at the 2014 fashion shows.

Karl Lagerfeld plans on creating a 270-room hotel in Macau, China. With a history of being hired as an interior decorator and, of course, being known for his position as the creative director of Chanel, who wouldn’t want him to design a whole hotel?! The hotel will have a set theme, which Lagerfeld has explained will be, ”kind of 19th-century style, but I want it modern at the same time.”
The hotel is said to be opening in 2017, but everyone is wondering why Karl Lagerfeld would take on such an extensive project when he’s already busy with Fendi and Chanel??? He claims, ”I have more houses than I need, and I don’t want to do any anymore. So I can – how could I say? – get rid of my frustration by doing hotels. You know, Gabrielle Chanel always said, ‘I only make dresses I would wear.’ And I make only rooms where I would like to sleep. It’s as simple as that.”
We just hope every room has an adorable little Karlitos doll in it like the one Cara Delevingne walked down the runway with……
Released on Drake’s album “Nothing Was the Same,” “Too Much” is a collaboration between the Canadian singer and Sampha. While Drake’s album has already received much praise, the song demonstrates Drake’s musical talents as well as Sampha’s. Sampha is from the UK and has insane vocal talent. He often collaborates with SBTRKT, an electronic producer. On this album Sampha sings the chorus while Drake showcases his rapping talents. Sampha’s subtle melody in the background is perfect against Drake’s rapping. The album was released in September 2013.

Whether you love the Kardashian-Jenner klan, or love to hate on them, there’s no denying that 18-year-old Kendal Jenner is making a splash in the fashion industry in her own right.
The argument could be made that designers would book her because of her family’s marketability. However, she’s now walked for Givenchy and Chanel at Paris Fashion Week. These two high-fashion designers would never sell out like that. There’s only one conclusion then: Kendall Jenner is actually a good model!
The quietest of the Kardashian sisters, Kendall is certainly getting herself noticed now.
She has an impossibly perfect body and an equally enviable wardrobe; even on our most dressed-up days, this teen fashionista puts us to shame. She’s modeled for some of the top names in industry, and she’s been linked to One Direction band-member Harry Styles. Does this girl seriously need to have it all? With all this going for her, we are definitely crushing.
Complete with a gospel sample and guest appearance from Kanye West and Big Sean, Rick Ross’s new song “Sanctified” is definitely one of the best off of his album “Mastermind”. Having released earlier this year, “Mastermind” is Ross’s fifth album. “Sanctified” is a beautiful collision of gospel vocals, clever lyrics and unique beats that tie it all together. The song allows Ross, West and Sean to tell their perspectives of how the fast-paced life of fame has impacted their lives.
Australian rapper/singer Iggy Azalea chose to use her “Fancy” new music video to pay tribute to the classic movie, Clueless. In it, almost perfectly mirrored scenes from the movie take place and take us way back to when the movie was our FAVE and most quotable movie of the time (as if!). The music video dropped yesterday and has attracted the younger crowd, as well as those who are hankering for Clueless to be brought back. Director X made sure the video brought back the classic parts of the film, but incorporated today’s gadgets as well to make it a bit more relatable.
Looks like this betty is rocking out and doing music videos right. Congrats Iggy!
