Tweet It wasn’t on my bucket list but, in hindsight, it feels like it should have been: “I want to irk Gloria Steinem and cheer Miley Cyrus in one day!” Imagine telling someone that! I’m sure the response would be “Not a chance.” Despite the odds, on Saturday, I managed to achieve both of these […]

Tweet Fashion at the Grammys is so much more interesting than at the acting-oriented awards shows. Personal style is part of the package for musicians. They don’t have to be “pretty” or “appropriate.” They only need to make a statement about themselves — the more distinctive, the better. This means, naturally, that my Best Dressed/Wear […]

Tweet Yesterday, when I wrote (again!) about my enduring fondness for ’80s-style single earrings, I mentioned that I am sometimes more subtly influenced by my love of ’80s fashion. For instance, I was unexpectedly taken down an ’80s path by the floral-printed Givenchy handbag that hyp-mo-tized me during Thanksgiving window-shopping. This weekend, my gorgeous mother, […]

Tweet Over the years, I — like a lot of people — have rolled my eyes over Kanye West‘s antics and outbursts. But, as I always say, “Never Is the Next New Thing™.” In other words, things that are turn-offs at first can become appealing after repeated exposure.  Kanye started winning me over in ways […]

Tweet After years of taking shiteous concert photos followed by some sporadic but significant improvement (see Eminem, Skylar Grey, Beyonce and Rihanna … but not Depeche Mode), I now go into full-on photojournalist mode at concerts. On one hand, I want to just enjoy the concert. On the other hand, I feel compelled to make […]

Tweet A few hours before the Nine Inch Nails concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Monday, I was at the gym thinking, “I guess I’ll just wear my Damien Hirst skull t-shirt and jeans AGAIN.” I wear that combination a lot. Then Madonna’s 1984 “Lucky Star” video came on the music-video station I was […]

Tweet In 2008, I got a pair of white wedge gladiator sandals by Jil Sander, inspired by my fond memories of the flat white gladiators I wore in 1985. I searched for photos of the original sandals but didn’t find any … until now! Here are the sandals sitting next to me on the beach. […]

Tweet Clicking around the Interwebs, as one does, I came across an old Rolling Stone magazine slideshow of its “pop diva” covers. The 29 images include the iconic Britney Spears and Janet Jackson covers, of course. Mariah Carey’s cover might be the best she’s ever looked. One of my favorites is this playful 1989 Herb […]

Tweet The uproar over Miley Cyrus‘s twerk-tastic MTV Video Music Awards performance caused me to seek psychological help. Not for me, bitches! I was looking for assistance for the many traumatized viewers, including the ones who play it cool(er) by saying it wasn’t the sex-ay-ness of the performance that was a problem for them: Their […]

Tweet I came across this description of social-media attitudes on MetaFilter recently, and I thought it was high!larious! “OTHER PEOPLE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENJOY THINGS THAT I DO NOT ENJOY.” That line sums up a vast number of conversations on Twitter. I’m always amazed that people have the time and energy to aggressively tell […]
