Naaz Mohammed is a 19-year-old Kurdish musician living in Holland. Today she premiered her latest single “Up to Something”—a celebration of her breakthrough into what she calls “outside life.” Like all her songs it is immediate and hooky, rare qualities in a musical climate rife with overproduced ambience and meandering top-lines.
For 20-year-old actor @JackoRowan, it's clear that his breakout film "Born to Kill" is just the beginning: earlier this month, Rowan wrapped "Benjamin," Simon Amstell’s debut narrative feature as a director and writer. Next up, he will appear in the fourth season of hit UK series "Peaky Blinders" alongside Aiden Gillen, Cillian Murphy, Paul Anderson, and Adrian Brody. 📸 @mattholyoak
Congratulations to American novelist George Saunders on his #manbookerprize victory for Lincoln in the Bardo. "As the writer of this book, what I loved was the feeling of having so many surprises come at the end that I hadn’t really planned or planted. Just through the process of trying to make the living and the dead feel real, all these little benefits came out. And these benefits turned out to be much more articulate statements of what I really believe."
So far @Jessica_Rothe has tackled parts ranging from an enterprising pot dealer in MTV’s comedy series "Mary+Jane" to a supporting, singing role in last year’s "La La Land," and is set to star in next year’s remake of the 1983 cult classic "Valley Girl," but @HappyDeathDaymovie, out now, marks the actress's first foray into the horror genre. "The film is a horror-comedy-coming-of-age-action-thriller-love-story: 'Groundhog Day' meets 'Scream' meets John Hughes,” she explains.
This past July, professional and amateur motocross racers converged to compete against one another at the Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, New York. What follows is a portrait of the motorheads and their madness.
The Walking Dead's @laurencohan described the "Death Dinners" hosted for each character as they're killed off the show. According to the British-American actress, Steven Yeun's goodbye party (he played fan-favorite Glenn Rhee) was the first to feature a karaoke machine. "We finished the night singing Backstreet Boys karaoke and everything else cheesy you can imagine."
As the new creative director at Saint Laurent, one of fashion’s most storied and influential houses, @AnthonyVaccarello is once again reinventing Parisian cool.
Cloud of Petals, Sarah Meyohas’s latest project, is as ethereal and delightfully obscure as it sounds. Opening at Red Bull Arts on October 12, the 26-year-old artist's show features a film, vitrines made by wall panels from Bell Labs fitted with two-way mirrors, six virtual reality simulations depicting digitized and pixelated rose petals, and two wall displays of 3,200 individually pressed and preserved petals.
