Kim Gordon Weighs In On The Challenges Of “Having It All”

Trying to maintain two careers, visual art and music, and to be a mother at the same time, always felt kind of impossible. When you’re feeling that you can and should do everything, then you never feel like you’re going to achieve anything. I think what kept me going was this deep understanding that it…

Thurston Moore Admits To Cheating On Kim Gordon, Slams Jezebel For Calling Him A Dick

A few months ago, in an interview with ELLE, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon discussed, amongst other things, the breakup of her 30-year-long marriage to bandmate Thurston Moore, after she discovered he was carrying on “a double life” with a “starstruck woman.” That woman, Eva Prinz, is still Moore’s girlfriend, and he addressed their relationship in an interview

Kim Gordon Generously Shares Her “Traumatized Good Times Tunes” Rap Playlist

In my experience, breakup music can go two ways: there’s the soft, sad, slow, wallowing type, and then there’s the upbeat and/or aggressive type that makes you feel like you’ve got the world by the balls, and fuck him, anyway.

Kim Gordon Thinks Women Make Good Revolutionaries

“Women make natural anarchists and revolutionaries, because they’ve always been second-class citizens, kinda having had to claw their way up. I mean, who made up all the rules in the culture? Men—white male corporate society. So why wouldn’t a woman want to rebel against that?”

Kim Gordon Debuts Fashion Collaboration With Surface To Air

Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon is pretty much the godmother of post-punk, and one of the coolest and most stylish women around. So when we heard that she’d be collaborating on a fashion collection with chic French retailer Surface to Air, we couldn’t wait to see it. Kim’s designs don’t disappoint. What does: their outrageous prices.

From What We Can Tell, Kim Gordon’s Sportmax Collab Is Disappointing (Sniff)

We just don’t get it. Kim Gordon plus anything fashion should equal awesomeness. In the past, the Sonic Youth punk songstress has dabbled in the industry, producing outstanding results with cult ’90s brand X-Girl (gone for years now, sadly) and more recently, a sleek, military-inspired line called Mirror/Dash, which faded into oblivion. Gordon is now…

Taste The Nostalgia: 1994 X-Girl Fashion Show

Here’s a reminder of the days when indie fashion was fun, lighthearted, and embracing of all different body types. Remember the label X-Girl? (If it was before your time, it’s a definite must-know just to increase your cultural cred.) The line of sporty tees and A-line dresses was developed in the ’90s by rock…
