Lorde’s Style Icons Are David Bowie & Grace Jones, Of Course

“The kind of clothes that I’ve found I like to wear over the past year and six months have all been things that make me feel powerful and strong. I wear a lot of pants. I wear a lot of long, structured dresses.”

In a chat with Vogue for their March 2014 issue, Lorde shared some of her fashion philosophies. The singer looks up to people “who have such a sense of themselves” within their style, like Grace Jones and David Bowie. Lorde is about the most self-actualized high schooler I know of, and that certainly comes across in her sartorial choices. She’s mentioned that her favorite designers are Comme des Garcons, Miu Miu, Moschino and Simone Rocha, but the singer also has a dog named Jimmy Choo — another favorite brand perhaps? In the past, she’s explained to Vogue how important clothes are to her musicality: Keep reading »

Does watching David Bowie sit, strum a guitar, and stare menacingly into the camera for the better part of 3 minutes and 9 seconds sound like your idea of a good time? Well, it better, because I don’t want to know the person who answers no to that question. In stark contrast to the macabre religiously-themed visuals from the second music video off his new album, “Valentine’s Day” is pretty much just a video, rife with gun imagery, of a casually dressed David singing in a dungeon looking creepy as hell. It’s an appropriate and tasteful tribute to the song’s sensitive subject matter — the lyrics were inspired by the February 14, 2008 massacre at Northern Illinois University.

Watch This: “Space Oddity” Is Even Better In Space

Chris Hadfield Space Oddity
"Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing left to do."

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has been entertaining and educating all of us here on Earth with awesome YouTube videos and tweets during his five-month stay aboard the International Space Station. He returns to Earth today, but he made sure to leave us with a bittersweet farewell that is also the first music video ever recorded in space. As he tweeted yesterday: “With deference to the genius of David Bowie, here’s Space Oddity, recorded on Station. A last glimpse of the World.” [YouTube]

David Bowie gets what David Bowie wants, and if that means having Marion Cotillard and Gary Oldman star in his latest music video, then by God, that’s what’s going to happen. The Thin White Duke is at it again with this impressive video for the titular track from The Next Day, which you probably shouldn’t watch at work. There’s a couple of boobs in there. Also, Marion as church whore is my new style muse. [Vulture]
