FASHION FATIGUE. The international AW13 MBFW carousel this week hits Stockholm. Highlights include Whyred (tonight) and Tiger (tomorrow’s finale). Last season’s highlight included GAGA visiting the closing party (she felt relevant at the time…).
GOLDEN SHOWER. Model Andrew Cooper showered in yellow liquid? Get your mind out of the gutter – it’s Diet Coke reviving “The Coke Hunk”.
WARDEROBE MALFUNCTION? “Poor Jennifer Lawrence”, people thought, when her Dior gown “ripped” at the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards. It’s all in the design, darling.
HYPOCRITE MUCH? The Boy Scouts of America are lifting the gay ban on scouts. We guess it was always acceptable for leaders?
TRANSTASTIC. Benetton’s Unhate message continues featuring trans supermodel Lea T among others in the colourful SS13 campaign.
EUROVISIONMANIA. The camp phenomenon Eurovision kicks off this week. As Sweden’s Loreen won this guilty pleasure last year, the sequin-filled finale will be held here in May with local, bisexual comedienne Petra Mede as host.
Swedish cult, electro band THE KNIFE goes queer/industrial in the ten minute (!) Marit Östberg-directed Full Of Fire, the first single off the new album.
EXPLORE MEN. HBO’s new series “The Vikings” chronicles the ferocious world of the mighty, medieval Norsemen. Airing in March, it follows the adventures of Ragnar Lothbrok, played by cutie Travis Fimmel with Alex Skarsgård’s…scrawny brother Gustaf as Floki.
IMAGE ISSUES. Perhaps worse than JLo’s shameful Fiat endorsement, Rihanna now “designs” a “casual chic” line for high street brand River Island. In related news, her misogynic on-off boyfriend Chris Brown, still has anger management issues.
