Adele "Rolling In The Deep" Video Premiere

When I first read of Adele's description for her first single "Rolling in the Deep" describing it as "gospel disco", I was instantly enthralled. Now, after watching the premiere of the video, I get exactly what she means.

Adele's voice is equally as extraordinary as the brilliant singers that came before her (Dusty Springfield, Christina Aguilera, Peggy Lee, Rudy Bennett-lead singer of 60s group Shocking Blue). And like the first album, "19", the follow-up is something to anticipate based on just the single alone! The record is infectious carrying what I like to call, a soul-binding colossal effect! Dig it kiddas.

Pensive James Dean

James Dean's is caught in a daydream while strutting a black n white striped pull-over. He has his trusty wayfarer shaped glasses in front of him and behind a bodiless Greek statue.

I've personally seen James Dean photographed quite a bit in the same pull over. There's no doubt that this was a favorite piece of his. We all have those garments that we pull out of our own personal archive and feel athome when wearing it. Wouldn't you agree kidddas?

One of James Dean's last interview.

Interview's Faces of 2010

Interview magazine is reflecting on the year that's concluding, and what a year 2010 was for fashion, musique, and film. Some of the faces featured in the year end's mag include itsnotyou darlings, Alexander Wang, Blake Lively, Carey Mulligan, Nick Minaj, Ryan Gosling, and James Franco. The magazine offers a brief bio along with a quote from each entertainer featured in a portfolio type manner . Below are a few descriptions and images featured from the article.

The Transformer: Blake Lively; The Consummate Professional: Ryan Gosling; The Graduate: Emma Watson; The Newly-Minted Icon: Carey Mulligan; The Renaissance Man: James Franco; The Networker: Jesse Eisenberg; The Breakthrough Rapper: Nicki Minaj

After reading every profile, I chose to highlight my favorite quote, selecting designer, mister Alexander Wang! Quotable in 2010...

"The funny thing is there's this impression that everyone in fashion is so glamorous and that they live these tall-tale lives. For me, what I love most about my social life now is that it's exactly the same as it was before: hole-in-the-wall restaurants, bad movies, and a lot of sitting around with friends doing absolutely nothing," Wang declared to Diane von Furstenberg in March."

For the complete issue, dig it here kiddas...

Pope Likes Them Tight

A guess the Pope and his clergy men need a little fun sometimes too.

Russia Today writes:

A usually staid weekly Papal audience was spiced up this week with an acrobatic performance by a troupe of topless men. The four performers dressed in white suits walked across the stage towards the Papal throne and surprised the Pope by whipping off their shirts before beginning an acrobatic performance on Tuesday. The Pope looked on as the men hoisted each other into the air, one on top of the other, three high."
