This Week: Kanye's Mouth, Björk's Exhibition, and Mariah Makes an Unexpected Friend

Posted By on Fri, Jun 20, 2014 at 9:07 AM


"When people think celebrity, which is the highest form of communication -- we're like walking networks or TV shows or brands in ourselves -- you don't think good taste. And I believe that bad taste is vulgar. It's like cursing. I think the world can be saved through design. Because what is the most distasteful thing someone can do? Kill someone. So, good taste is the opposite of that."
Kanye West spoke at a conference. As usual, it made little to no sense. By God, we love him. (Adweek)

"I can't work with anyone but Jay Z because he's number one. I can't

be with any girl but Kim because that's the girl whose pictures I look

at the most and get turned on by."
Kanye West at that conference, again. Truly, his mouth is the gift that never stops giving. (Adweek)

"Steve Jobs, as everyone knows, was my biggest influence... After he passed, I made it my life's mission to do what he did inside of that company. I dream to help raise the palate and raise the taste level of a generation."
Guess who? (Adweek)

"Ooooh! She's a sexy character!... Oh, that's gonna be all over television. Well, fuck it -- they're real."
Idina Menzel (a.k.a. Adele Dazim) handling an underboob-related wardrobe malfunction in exactly the manner that all performers should. (YouTube)

"Björk's collaborations with video directors, photographers, fashion designers, and artists will be featured, and the exhibition culminates with a newly commissioned, immersive music and film experience."
New York's MoMA has announced a major Björk exhibit between March 7 and June 7, 2015. Book flights now, Icelandic-pixie fans! (NME)

"The more I think about it, the angrier it makes me. My sister deserves more respect. It hasn't even been three months since she died. I now believe that he was a bigger part of her troubles than we knew about."
L'Wren Scott's sister, Jan Shane, is far from impressed that Mick Jagger is dating a much younger woman so soon after his partner's death. (Daily Mirror)

"According to the source, Kelly plays a doctor in the video, and Gaga plays his patient. This apparently happens: "Gaga asks Kelly, 'Will I ever be able to walk again?' The singer replies, 'Yes, if you let me do whatever I want with your body.' The not-so-good doctor then adds, 'I'm putting you under, and when you wake up, you're going to be pregnant.'" ARE. YOU. KIDDING. ME."
Apparently, the original video for Lady Gaga and R. Kelly's "Do What U Want" video was even more massively offensive than previously imagined. (Jezebel)

"It's not really bad, like her breath doesn't smell."
Beyonce yelled at 50 Cent once, and this is what he took away from it. (Watch What Happens Live)

"I don't look at the outside so much. I'm not an outside, cover person.  I'm more of a essence-of-the-person person. Their soul -- the feeling you get from a person."
Jennifer Lopez explains why none of her exes look anything alike (The Wendy Williams Show)

And, finally... THIS happened:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
