Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy has landed the cover story of the August 2008 issue of OUT Magazine. In the interview, he talks about sexuality, his childhood and Andy Warhol:
“Warhol impacted you in the ’80s whether you wanted or not,” he says, but after seeing Piero Manzoni’s Merda d’artista (literally, cans allegedly filled with “artist’s shit”) as a kid, he followed the theme to Warhol. Tributes to his hero fittingly run the gamut, from T-shirts — one has Warhol’s name across the chest of a baseball-style jersey; another is a set of cartoon monster portraits with “Warholier than thou” as tagline — to a new bar with an underground space modeled after Warhol’s less glamorous hangout, Max’s Kansas City.”
Not surprisingly, you would still find this year’s collection of the forever prince of geometric prints is synonymous with geometric prints in a kaleidoscope of colours. Pucci is still selling the boho look with starbursts of colours. The prints this season are a little more linear and clean compared to previous seasons where crazy colours were thrown on the clothes. It sure makes this season a little bit more fresh.
My complain? It is all very eighties and if boho-chic is not your thing, don’t go for it. Otherwise you would only spending huge bucks on something that you hate. There are many other fashionable brands to choose from.
This may not come as a surprise, but Michael Stipe, the lead vocal of R.E.M. is indeed gay. He talked to Spin Magazine about his coming out story.
“It was super complicated for me in the ’80s. I was totally open with the band and my family and my friends and certainly the people I was sleeping with. I thought it was pretty obvious. Now I recognize that to have public figures be very open about their sexuality helps some kid somewhere out there.”
