Fashion, Supermodels, Celebs, and Collectors Love Jeff Koons

He’s made a name for himself becoming one of the most successful living American artist, selling his shiny works for millions of dollars, and is a discussion for bitter art students and fashion lovers alike. Jeff Koons has had collaboration with H&M — something that is regularly reserved for fashion houses like Alexander Wang or superstars like David Beckham. Jeff sealed the deal when he caught the attention of Lady Gaga’s lil’ monsters after designing her album cover for ArtPop.

The artist’s name is becoming omnipresent in pop culture, so it only makes sense that Koons is nearly a celeb himself. See below to further explore the phenomenon.

Too dreary for you today?

When the clouds hang this low and icy rain threatens, the best retreat is one into complete and utter denial. Take a page from Drew and close your eyes… imagine the sun… relax… There, is that better? Stay as long as you like.

New Music Tuesdays: The Best Videos for This Week’s New Releases

Share Button

Music is generally released on Tuesdays, but these days, by the time an album drops, we’ve generally heard the singles, streamed the album and downloaded a rough mix. Still, what better way to decide if you want to part with your $10 or however long it takes you to download an album than to look at the videos that have come out, giving each artist a chance to share a new track and show off some weird vision or live performance that goes along with it.

Baltimore native and M.I.A. sidekick Rye Rye has been talked about for years, but it’s only today that she is releasing her debut album, Go! Pop! Bang! The lead single, “Boom Boom” is infectious, exciting and proves that good things are indeed sometimes worth the wait.

While official videos for tracks off of In The Belly of the Brazen Bull, out today, are scarce, here’s a video of British buzz punks The Cribs band playing two songs with the Smiths’ Johnny Marr. Not a bad way to be.

Poster girl for summer Bethany Cosentino and her band Best Coast are releasing The Only Place, the second Best Coast full-length today. And while no videos (especially none directed by Drew Barrymore) have been released just yet, here’s a clip of Beth & Co. performing the track ‘Why I Cry.” 

It’s not a traditional music video, but this intro to Philly-based mewithoutYou’s new album, Ten Stories, gives us a listen to the music and some behind-the-scenes looks at what went into making the record.

In The Red: The New Hair Color Is Everywhere

Flipping through May’s newest glossies, I had a thought: Is red hair the new bang? I had just noticed Kate Moss in Vogue Paris looking punky in (temporary) red locks, and was flipping through Lara Stone’s editorial “Wild!!!!” in Vogue China, where the gap-toothed one is also sporting a new red ‘do. Days later, Blake Lively washed away her Cali blond in favor of rouge. Then the redhead floodgates really opened up. Have a look:
