Billie Eilish says she wears baggy clothes because she never felt ‘desired’

There’s a dark reason for Billie Eilish’s signature look. The Grammy-winning 18-year-old says she often doesn’t feel attractive to the people she dates, and as a result, dresses in baggy clothes. “Here’s a bomb for you: I have never felt desired,” Eilish tells GQ in an interview published Thursday. “My past boyfriends never made me...

You Are an Influencer

When I first started blogging in 2004, it surprised me how much people actually applied and tested the ideas I wrote about. I wasn’t sure how much traction there would be on the action side, so at first I was pleased to see that. However, this also gave me a weightier feeling of responsibility, especially as more years went by. Being labeled an “influencer” is an accurate title because it was clear that I was influencing people to make real changes and consider different frames. I took thi...

Lehrreiche Dokumentationen, Filme & Serien über Rassismus

Dieser geschichtsträchtige Moment war längst überfällig. Seit fast einer Woche gehen die Demonstrant*innen Tag für Tag auf die Straße, um gegen Rassismus und Polizeigewalt zu protestieren. Doch auch, wenn der Ruf nach Gerechtigkeit gerade besonders laut ist, gibt es ihn nicht erst seit ein paar Tagen. Der Tod von George Floyd mag das Fass zum Überlaufen gebracht haben, doch gefüllt wurde es durch Jahrhunderte institutionellen Rassismus. In den letzten Jahren haben die sozialen Medien dazu beiget...

Would You Try Edible Fragrance? The New Era of Multifunctional Beauty

Multipurpose products and multifunctional materials within products are making a huge comeback on the back of today’s less-is-more, up-cycling subculture.

Overcast Twilight in May: DIOR HOMME

When I was 8 years, old I realized that I loved rain. I was standing in my school corridor one day looking through the window at the murky, flooded and dripping, heavy, overgrown garden. Someone nearby was complaining about "the bad weather yet again," while I was thinking that no weather could be better. I still think that way. I remember one June in London - it was raining every day. Light s... Read full article: Overcast Twilight in May: DIOR HOMME from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes Maga...

What does your job have in common with playing for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL?

Yesterday we mentioned our grim office job at a company that was dying on its arse. It later occurred to us that Cricket Fever, the Netflix documentary about the Mumbai Indians, might be the reason why this particular slice of our working life had resurfaced uninvited in the ooze of our consciousness. You wouldn’t think that over-pressured underpaid work in a tinpot digital marketing firm would have much in common with being a cricketing superstar, but let us assure you right now, it absolu...

He waltzes around the dance floor, moving smoothly, impressing his audience with his performance.

A successful makeup artist, a great conversationalist and a fabulous dancer, Urzaan Patel is a lot of things. Unfortunately, the one label that sticks the longest and is the most prominent, is his sexual orientation and he ...

Steve Priest: the outrageous Sweet bassist who presaged heavy metal

There was what’s come to be known as “high glam”, the genre’s originators and most artful practitioners: Bowie and his acolytes, Roxy Music, T Rex – album artists who could expect serious critical consideration and the space in interviews to expound...
