Kylie Drops Her Skirt In New Lyric Video

Kylie Minogue is aiming for the American audience after her much successful Aphrodite album. Now Kylie has signed to Jay Z's Roc Nation label and has released a new track titled "Skirt" where she wants it off!

Kylie's Skirt The Australian Pop Sensation Hikes it Up in Her Smashing New Video

The indomitable antipodean Kylie Minogue explodes into view in a video for new song “Skirt”—a peek at new music as she works on her 12th, as-yet-unfinished album and her debut with Jay-Z’s management company Roc Nation. The synth-heavy and dubstep-influenced track, co-written by The-Dream, who has collaborated on hits with Beyoncé and Britney Spears, was previewed in a set in Ibiza by its Scottish dance producer Nom De Strip, aka Chris Elliott, before being unveiled to the public on the eve of the singer’s recent 45th birthday. Minogue rose to fame as a young actress in Australian soap opera Neighbours, then scored a succession of bubblegum pop hits in the late-80s such as perennial favorite “I Should Be So Lucky”, before turning in a more indie direction in the 90s. The millennium saw Minogue reinvent herself once again, turning back to pop and setting the dance world alight with several hits and the help of some miniscule gold hot pants. Today’s stop-motion video was created from around 1000 stills by fellow Australian photographer and director Will Davidson, whose clients include Calvin Klein and Nike, with work published in V magazine, i-D and AnOther. Davidson shot the singer in her Los Angeles hotel room just last week in only three hours, as she wore clinging black Alexander Wang,Vanessa Bruno and vertiginous Jimmy Choo stilettos. “In 25 years I haven’t done anything like this,” says Minogue. “It was also really last minute and thrown together in a heartbeat. I love how Will’s shots have a rawness to them. They feel real, unprocessed and much like the viewer is there with me.” Read on for the lowdown straight from the performer herself, plus a chance to win an exclusive piece of Kylie memorabilia.

What can we expect from the album? Kylie Minogue: Pop dance but with a few new flavors. Expect the unexpected!

Do you feel that spending more time in Los Angeles has influenced your musical style? KM: Yes, but this is an extension of what I have always done. I love being chameleon-like and putting myself into new and unexpected situations, pushing myself to try different styles and delivery. My goal is to expand my zone of experience and music and not lose myself in the process—you have to keep digging to get to the gold.

How do you feel that being with Roc Nation has helped in shaping this album? KM: Joining the Roc family has been an exciting whirlwind. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some producers who have been on my wish list for a number of years so it’s amazing! Roc Nation is such a dynamic company, combining many years of experience with a hungry young team. It makes for fireworks and I think that will be heard in the music.

You have collaborated with quite a few people on this album—is there anyone you still dream of collaborating with? KM: Always. I’m genuinely curious about the magic of collaboration. For example, I can’t imagine my life without duetting with Nick Cave on “Where The Wild Roses Grow.”

You’ve recently made a few forays back into acting. Anything exciting in the works? KM: Appearing in Holy Motors and screening the film at Cannes last year was just mind-blowing. It was a beautiful yet terrifying challenge to strip myself of Pop Kylie and let the character just be. I also loved my day filming the She-Ra skit for Funny Or Die. I’ve been a fan of their website for a long time and this was a little dream come true. Acting feels so different to music but in a way it is like going home for me, so I love it and hope I can balance acting and music in the future. - ia

Amy Adams And Henry Cavill Are Super Heroes For Interview Magazine

 Lois Lane (Amy Adams) And (Henry Cavill) Superman are a super hero couple on the cover of the June/July 2013 issue of Interview Magazine in promotion of the upcoming summer blockbuster film Man of Steel. 

Check out some of the tid-bits from the cover story below.

Henry on having real chemistry with Amy: “For me, it’s more like I go to work, I do a job, I play a role, and then I go home. I don’t wear a cape at home. I’m not an invulnerable alien at home. I’m not in love with a woman called Lois Lane at home. I know there are a lot of people who get very involved I their characters, but I, personally, find it too involved. I just like to do it as a job— and it’s my job to make it look real.”

Henry on his emotions: “As much as I do love real-life stories they can often make you hurt in a way I’d rather not hurt. But I think that the hurt aspect is just something that exists in a lot of great stories because people can associate with it. If there’s one thing that we’re very good at as humans, it’s remembering the bad stuff. For some reason, it’s always the pain that gets you.”

Amy on filming her latest project in Boston during the bombings: “It was surreal. But I’m not somebody to sort of personalize a tragedy like that, unless it’s something that happened to me personally, so I felt like the important thing at that point was to reach out to the community. The people in Boston— their sense of community is so important to them. So instead of making it about my personal drama, I saw it more as a personal mission to reach out and try to help the people who were affected by it however we could.”


Joan Smalls: Woman of Steel

Puerto Rican super model Joan Smalls is set-a-spin in this fashion video by Barnaby Roper giving Wonder Woman a run for her money.

Puerto Rican supermodel Joan Smalls is transformed into a high-fashion superwoman in today’s exhilarating short by director Barnaby Roper. “I was playing around with the fact that the summer brings blockbusters. This year this includes Man of Steel, which is being released the same week as this film,” explains Roper of the video that employs the New York-based filmmaker’s signature technical wizardry. “I tried to show a strong individual female character and Joan was perfect person—she gives really strong poses.” Stylist Keegan Singh built up Smalls’ heroic look by plundering designers including Balmain, Rodarte and Altuzara for powerful silhouettes and then finished the looks off with piles of tough jewelry from Eddie Borgo.

Smalls, who modeled in New York for three years before her big break walking exclusively for Ricardo Tischi’s Givenchy couture show in 2009, has become an industry favorite featuring in cover stories for W magazine as well as various editions of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, and fronting campaigns for Gucci, Stella McCartney and Estee Lauder who, in 2011, made her their first Latina face. -via
