Lily Allen Is Hot In June For Glamour Magazine

Lily Allen is no stranger to saying whats on her mind and and the June 2014 Glamour cover girl speaks on betrayal, raising kids and the real reason she got back into the music world.

"I do feel betrayed by my sex… People have got their own agendas these days. It's obvious when it's about ego and them wanting to sound clever. It's sad. Exhausting. Your own sex, in the name of feminism, hitting you back down. But I'm not gonna censor myself. I'm not gonna be beige."

As well, in the issue, Lily talks about her desire to settle down and live a normal life away from fame:

"If you come from a dysfunctional family like I came from, it's pretty straightforward, that kind of dreaming... My parents weren't around much when I was a kid, so that's what you want for your kids, not to have that environment."

On why she needed to return to the music industry: "I wasn't good at staying at home all day, it didn't suit me. I'm creative, it's just who I am… I missed the positive feedback about my music from my fans. I missed the rush of performing. I missed the free clothes and handbags and the good tables in posh restaurants. I did!" via -

Video Premiere Blondie - Sugar On The Side Ft. Systema Solar

Blondie is back! Check out the great video for Blondie's new single "Sugar On The Side" directed by renowned fashion photographer Rankin.   The black and white lyric video features Rock and Roll legend Debbie Harry behind abstract shapes and in a number of ensembles looking amazing for 68!

Directed by Rankin, this striking video shares its concept with front-woman Debbie Harry’s bold Issue 5 cover shoot for Hunger Magazine last year. Shot in monochrome and mixing kaleidoscope and geometric visuals, ‘Sugar On The Side’ sees Harry embody two contrasting looks and personas. The track features Caribbean collective Systema Solar.

‘Sugar On The Side’ is a track from their new collection of songs entitled Ghosts of Download, part of the band’s 40th Anniversary double-disc package, Blondie 4(0) Ever, which also includes an album entitled Deluxe Redux: Greatest Hits featuring brand new studio recordings of the band’s biggest songs

Miley Cyrus Gets Tongue Tied

America's favorite new pop candy, Miley Cyrus is featured in a great creative short film from mixed-media artist and filmmaker Quentin Jones and we like it!

In the USA, any fresh ‘n’ hot star with blonde ambitions is bound to be a sex symbol. Miley Cyrus wears that bondage lightly. And literally. She stretches the definition of kink, making it pop. On stage, riding a giant hot dog, she grins like the girl who yells loudest in the “penis!” game. She could stop, actually, if she wanted to… but she won’t. She wears her latex like she’s dressing up as herself for Halloween: “I’m a Sexy Miley Cyrus! What are you?”

As part of Cyrus’ current Bangerz tour is a two-minute video directed by mixed-media artist and filmmaker Quentin Jones, whose signature soignée graphics and splashes of paint transform a pornoriffic-almost-parody into artsploitation. Stripping the color from our heroine’s cartoonish persona, Jones goes in on popular symbols of sex: the fishnets; the beauty mark made darker like Marilyn’s; the black collar fit for a 'Bunny. To Miley, as to a little kid, even the most dangerous object is a toy. And like a kid’s, her near-nudity is hardly erotic. She’s just happier naked. Her poses are jokes, even that infamous tongue—stuck out—remains firmly in cheek. She holds up the cardboard cut-out and winks. Get it? She’s playing with herself.

It should be clear as ink that Miley Cyrus is no former Disney kid. She’s a forever Disney kid. Sixty years after Walt himself collaborated with Salvador Dali, his phantasmagorical dreams of goofy innocence and erotically charged surrealism have been reanimated.
