Mick Jagger Mourns L’Wren Scott

As reported in yesterday’s article, L’Wren Scott, famed fashion designer and longtime girlfriend of Mick Jagger, was found dead in her Manhattan apartment of apparent suicide. According to his spokesperson yesterday, Jagger was devastated, and has since cancelled this Wednesday nights show for the Rolling Stones 14 ON FIRE tour in Perth. In addition to this, all tour dates will be postponed.

Dating since 2001, the power couple attended many events together always looking very fashionable and, even more so, in love. Shortly after learning of Scott’s death, Jagger was asked if they were still in a relationship, to which he replied, “Of course.” Mick Jagger took to Facebook to release a personal statement regarding his feelings during this difficult time. He explained, “I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way. We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me. I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received. I will never forget her.”

Our thoughts go out to him as well as Scott’s family and loved ones.

Who doesn’t love a multi-tasking man? Silly question, we know everyone does! And Pharrell Williams is definitely topping our list of sexy multi-taskers right now.

Pharrell is not only the rapper we know and love, but he’s also a singer, songwriter, producer, musician, and fashion designer. Apparently it’s all in a days work for him.

Since his Grammy’s stunt with the Arby’s hat, it seems like Pharrell is just popping up everywhere. –And he’s looking super fine while doing it! This weekend he flashed his perfect abs on stage at the Future Music Festival in Sydney.

His new album “G I R L” just nabbed the #1 spot in the UK, and it’s doing damn well in the United States too. (Check it out here)

We can’t wait to see what the rest of 2014 has in store for this hottie.

Pharrell Williams Talks to ‘Girls’ in His New Album

pharrell-williams-auctions-off-vivienne-westwood-girl album annexmag

Pharrell Williams is making headlines for something other than his Arby’s hat this week. The producer/artist has dropped his first album in eight years, and it’s creating quite a stir. The album, entitled “Girls,” features cameos by artist such as Daft Punk, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, and even Miss Miley. The tracks on this album are catchy, funky, and sure to get stuck in your head and make you dance for days!

Some speculate that Pharrell’s outrageous hat, worn at the Grammy’s, was a ploy to generate buzz before the release of his album. If this is true, he really didn’t need it. The promising album is sure to have some no. 1 hits and get attention in its own right.

Nicely done, Pharrell.

Man Crush Monday: The Neighbourhood

We couldn’t bring ourselves to pick just one man to be crushing on this Monday, so we picked a whole band!

The boys of The Neighbourhood have more to offer than hit songs like last year’s Sweater Weather–they’re also icons in the world of street style. Just looking at them kind of makes you want to go out and buy your boyfriend a whole new, hipster wardrobe. They’re definitely the coolest boys in the, um, neighborhood.

The band is made up of frontman Jesse Rutherford on vocals, Jeremy Freedman and Zach Abels on guitar, and Mikey Margott playing bass. Last month, the band announced that their drummer, Bryan Sammis, left the band to pursue a solo career.

Bryan, honey, how could you not want to spend time with these hotties? We’ll gladly take your place!

Lorde and HAIM on the Cover of V Magazine

Lorde and Haim grace the cover of W Magazine‘s March issue with edgy black and white photos that we can’t take our eyes off of. Lorde’s hit song “Royals” has been one of our favorites, she’s incredibly unique with her gothic style and that odd Grammy performance that somehow made us like her even more. The songstress explains how she wants to give people a break from her music before she comes back with something she claims is going to be very different.

Willow and Jaden’s New Song ’5′ Takes Over

Willow Smith seems to have put aside hair whipping for a moment while she releases her new music, which has attracted all kinds of attention. Willow pairs up with her brother, After Earth actor Jaden Smith, to sing what people are calling an “ethereal” and “mesmerizing” song. The song seems to follow suit with a previous song released, ‘Sugar and Spice’, which shows a softer, deeper side of the Smith babe. Truth is, ’5′ has a good beat and a uniquely dreamy underlying sound, kind of makes you sleepy, but in a good way.

The 13-year-old’s song and lyrics takes you back to the days of your first crush when she sings, “Can you see the words rollin’ off my tongue? You’ve got the touch baby ’cause you’re the one.” The sweet song has a cool edge when Jaden comes in mid-song and raps, which balances out the whole song beautifully.

Will this be the summer song for 2014? Just give me a chair next to the pool and a refreshing drink in hand with this playing in the background and I’m set for the summer.

Vuitton ft. Bowie and Muse

It´s finally out! After a few weeks waiting, our dreams came true and Louis Vuitton decided to surprise us all again with their most recent campaign: L´invitation au Voyage. The French Fashion House wanted us all get obsessed with their newest baby  and has definitely achieved it!
Drama and fantasy mix with each other to create an environment full of excitement, mystery and beauty. Filmed in Venice, the second chapter of this amazing campaign, shows model Arizona Muse arriving to an incredible palace. After opening the doors of the place, she realizes there´s a party  going on. Then, she encounters David Bowie, who is singing a unique version of “I rather be high.” 
Arizona falls in love with every single detail of that moment: the clothes, the music, David singing. She has found freedom, perfection, destiny; everything she has looked for her entire life in one place.
She closes her eyes for a second and when she opens them, everything has faded away. The music has stopped. People aren´t dancing anymore. David is gone. She´s got only one thing that proves everything was real: a paper with the music Bowie played, hidden in her Vivienne purse. Arizona realizes that she was dreaming while being awake. Then, she decides to leave the place, searching her own destiny once again.
