Of Course Art Can Change The World, If Only The Art World Wanted It To

VICE wrote up a cool panel discussion at Bard on the subject of politically engaged art today, but it was lacking an answer to the question it posed: Can art be a form of political activism? The obvious answer is, well, yes, of course. I mean, look at Jacques-Louis David’s “The Death…

James Franco Publishes Short Story In VICE About Lindsay Lohan

James Franco published a short story in VICE, which may or may not be fictional, about Lindsay Lohan coming to his hotel room at the Chateau Marmont one night and him reading her some short stories by J.D. Salinger. This is a very long-winded and pretentious way of denying (again) that you fucked her,…

Vice Presents Fashion Merkins (NSFW)

Leave it to Vice to attempt to make the merkin a high fashion accessory. Because, it's not about what's going on over your pants, it's about what's going on under them. Lounging around the house, flipping through a magazine is fun, especially when your vagina is growing a rainbow. Click through to see more from Vice's "Merkin' Around" fashion spread complete…

Vice Makes A Lil Bub Documentary, Of Course

If you're anything like me, you think Lil Bub is maybe the finest cat thing on the planet. The perma-kitten with stunted legs, bug eyes and a perpetually limp tongue has become an insta-celeb in influential cat video circles. Which is why Vice up and decided to make a documentary following Lil Bub's provocative exploits.

A Response To Vice’s Anti-Anal Sex Manifesto (From A Girl Who’s Done It)

Vice's Mary-Ann Banal (that must be a pen name) presents her case as to why women should never shove "sticks of meat up their poomakers." I'm all for talking openly about the pros and cons of anal sex. The only problem is, I can't tell whether Mary-Ann has actually taken it up the…

The Dark Side Of Playing Doggie Dress Up

Sure, you could dress your pooch up in a fluffy pink coat or a sweater, but the folks at Vice went to a much more sinister place: goggie S&M gear. Enter the chains, whips and leather -- these pups are ready for a biker fight. Or a Depeche Mode concert, whatever your pleasure. […

Fashion Week Internationale Visits Nigeria

Vice's "Fashion Week Internationale" has been a fascinating series and its final installment -- in Nigeria -- is perhaps the most striking. The episode conflates the country's fashion week with Nigeria's recent anti-gay legislation and history of anti-gay sentiment. Even the country's First Lady shows up, and notes that "I remember my hot pants used…

Full-Figured Fashion Week Tips The Scales

This year, as in every year, there was an absence of plus-sized women at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, which gave the organizers of Full-Figured Fashion two options: either lie down and take it, or fight back. They decided to fight back, and organized their own incredible Full-Figured Fashion Week, featuring a slew of fashion shows,…

A Shoe Habit To Put Ours To Shame

Women often get a bad rap for being shoe obsessed, but most women I know have nothing on the men of the Mexican town of Matehuala. The men and boys in Matehuala have been busy trying to outdo themselves with more elaborate and outlandish shoes--like the oversized elfish cowboy boots shown above. Styles and trend…

Chicks Apply Makeup With No Mirror, But Why Are They Topless?

Vice magazine recently ran a rather clever beauty story in their March issue (one that I missed because my ridic hipster days are long over, God bless 'em). They asked several American Apparel models "real girls" to apply their makeup without mirrors -- like, ZOMG! -- and had well-respected photographer Richard Kern snap the…

Karl Lagerfeld On Burqas, Celebrity Status, & Adoption

Here's the thing about fashion. Sometimes dreams do come true. Just yesterday, blogger Bryan Boy was invited to visit Vogue, and in the newest issue of Vice magazine, Canadian writer Bruce LaBruce was invited by the glossy to fly out to Paris to spend an hour and a half with the sunglassed designer, Karl…

Crushing, Vice-Style

Everyone thinks I'm an a-hole right now. Not because I'm trying to get everybody at Grandpa's funeral to play Rock Band. No, I'm in love—and I can't stop talking about it. Butterflies in my stomach, stars in my eyes, I arrive at the office every morning with a new story about something adorable he's done.
