A Night With Perry Farrell: Alt Icon, Creator of Lollapalooza, Devoted Family Man

At around 8:15 on a Wednesday evening earlier this summer, Perry Farrell—frontman of Jane's Addiction and creator of Lollapalooza—rose from his chair at Tao restaurant in downtown Manhattan, clamped his hands down on this reporter's shoulders and exclaimed, "I want to fuck you, too!" This was not the dinner conversation I was expecting. Farrell, however, had his reasons, and none were related to my innate sex appeal. As it happens, he was reenacting an experience he'd had on stage the night before, when an overly affectionate, toothless girl had announced her fondness for him and he, perhaps too genuinely, see more

The Weeknd Is on Fire—Literally—in the Video for "I Can't Feel My Face"

While reigning Queen of Pop Taylor Swift was all but promised the unofficial title of Song of the Summer, many are shocked at the mind-blowing rise of The Weeknd's toe-tappingly energetic "I Can't Feel My Face." An infectious blend of vocal pyrotechnics and electronic funk, the song is currently No. 1 on the iTunes chart, despite the fact that the LP isn't out for another month. Earlier today, the 25-year-old Canadian artist, né Abel Tesfaye, released the song's official video on Apple Music, and it's the perfect visual accompaniment to his high-voltage hit. Directed by Sky Ferreira's go-to director see more

Calvin Harris Shows Off His Six-Pack in New Emporio Armani Ad

Congrats to Taylor Swift's boyfriend, Calvin Harris, who should treat his pop-star girlfriend to dinner after landing a high-profile gig.

Shot by lensman Lachlan Bailey in Brooklyn, the campaign is a stark black-and-white homage to Armani's tech-infused, hard-edged cool. Harris' campaign includes photos in which he models ready-to-wear, eyewear, timepieces, and, yup, underwear. see more

Kanye West Meets Caitlyn Jenner on the First Episode of I Am Cait

Last night, Cailtyn Jenner's docu-series I Am Cait debuted on E! after tons and tons of promotion. Did the show live up to the hype? Oh yeah. Most notably, the show is incredibly respectful and humane in its treatment of Caitlyn Jenner and her transition and how it affects her family. One of the episode's highlights is when Caitlyn reveals herself to her son-in-law, Kanye West. "I think this is one of the strongest things that have happened in our existence as human beings, that are so controlled by perception," West tells Jenner. "You couldn't have been up against see more

Kanye West's Latest Rant Is About What You Think of His Rants

Never known for censoring himself, Kanye West has made it clear that he doesn't care what people think about his notorious rants. At an event celebrating Steve McQueen With Kanye West: All Day/I Feel Like That, held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art over the weekend, the rapper had some choice words for a crowd filled with A-listers and art patrons, reports Page Six. "I go off on these rants that don't make any sense," he said. "But I don't give a fuck." Noted. The event was to celebrate the four day pop-up installation which featured a nine-minute see more

Michael B. Jordan to Star in Adaptation of Bestselling Memoir Just Mercy

Michael B. Jordan is a serious actor, with serious acting chops, landing serious roles, gaining serious respect. Fruitvale Station got him noticed, Fantastic Four will get him paid, Creed is getting him ripped, and Just Mercy, whenever it hits theaters, could get him awards (if Creed hasn't already landed him some by then). After some healthy competition for the rights to Bryan Stevenson's memoir, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, Broad Green Pictures won the property and just announced that Jordan will star as Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, during his time as a young, see more

Andy Cohen Was "Workin' for the Weekend" on This Week's Lip Sync Challenge

Last night's episode of the highly enjoyable guilty pleasure Lip Sync Battle found two men of TV—Bravo's Andy Cohen and The Today Show's Willie Geist—going toe-to-toe for silent-singing supremacy. Cohen performed stirring renditions of the eighties hit "Working for the Weekend" and Cher's "I Found Someone," while Geist did his best LL Cool J impression with "I Need Love" and channeled country-music legend Dolly Parton (yep) with his cover of her classic song "9 to 5." And while both men were excellent, only one could be crowned winner. Congrats to [SPOILER ALERT!] Geist, who took home the prize for Lip Sync Challenge">see more
