Armando Iannucci’s black comedy about the aftermath of Joseph Stalin's death is facing a complete ban in Russia. An advisor to the culture ministry is labelling the film a “planned provocation”.

This music video celebrates sexual identity & urban romance

Tafari - EIIR video

“I wanted to be a part of something which inspires unity in people,” says model Reece King of Tafari Hinds’ “EIIR” video in which he co-stars. He sees the project as “something that supports anyone and everyone and encourages us to connects despite or beliefs.” What’s striking about the London-based singer’s new video, though, is that all of this energy – this desire for unity and emotional collaboration – is channeled through a single couple, who find each other in a limitless urban…

Avril Lavigne most ‘dangerous’ celebrity to search online

Avril Lavigne

A study has found that searching for Avril Lavigne online could prove pretty risky: not because you’ll fall into the deep dark abyss of Twitter conspiracy threads and body double plots, or that you’ll start substituting numbers for l3tt3rs in a bid to make it 2004 again. A Cybersecurity company has revealed that searching for the “Sk8r Boi” singer leads fans to viruses and malware.

In the report from McAfee that “reveals which…

Sex please, we’re British! Fashion week’s kinky inspirations

Atomage magazine

Christopher Kane’s SS18 collection aired the dirty laundry of suburban Britain: the filthy, kinky or emotionally chaotic goings-on beneath the pristine veneer of domestic life. You know, white net curtains with a group of swingers going at it in the living room behind them; a housewife sobbing silently while piping the icing onto a perfect cake – that kind of thing.

And it wasn’t just Kane. Over at Burberry, read more »

Pepe the Frog creator takes legal action against alt-right

pepe

Matt Furie, the creator of Pepe the Frog, has been involved in an increasingly tense battle with the ‘alt-right’. In several bids to reclaim his character from the man baby fascists, Furie has killed off his character in his comic book and relaunched him as a cool, non-racist frog; he’s also gone after an Islamophobic children’s book that used Pepe and infringed on his copyright, forcing the book's creator to donate his profits to the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Now, Furie…

Gossip Girl is just The O.C. without the heart

The OC vs Gossip Girl

Back in February, we mourned the 10-year anniversary of the end of teen TV’s most game-changing show: The O.C. Just seven months after The O.C.’s ridiculous finale, then-31-year-old creator Josh Schwartz had a crack at dominating the landscape of teen TV once again with Gossip Girl.

Beyoncé’s Lemonade vinyl accidentally filled with punk songs

Beyonce Lemonade Zex

A striking lemon-yellow vinyl press of Beyoncé’s Lemonade is a must-have for any superfan of the Houston-born singer, but a mix-up at Columbia Records meant that a small minority of listeners awaiting the 2016 album’s A-side were left wondering why five thrashing punk tracks had been etched into the wax.

Instead of hearing “Pray You Catch Me”, “Hold Up”, and “Don’t Hurt Yourself”, fans got half of Canadian band Zex’s 2017 album Uphill…

Daria meets Black Mirror in this surreal animated short film

Margot Bowman’s Summer of Hate

Sex and politics aren’t the most attractive of bedfellows, but, in Margot Bowman’s world, their impact on one another is undeniable.

In an animated short film commissioned by Channel 4’s Random Acts initiative, titled Summer of Hate, Bowman takes us back to Summer 2016 (I know, frightening – stay with us). It follows a woman named Summer and her dog Ego as they leave their homeland in the midst of a Brexit-like crisis. Feeling…
