I Traded My Box Braids For A Frank Ocean-Inspired Buzz Cut

There are two types of people when it comes to haircuts: There are those who squint at the sight of shears for a two-inch trim, and those who walk in the salon with box braids and walk out with a buzz cut. Monica Ananonu, a freelance illustrator, falls into the latter category.In the latest episode of Hair Me Out, Ananonu crops her hair down to a fade and dyes it platinum blonde for a look inspired by Frank Ocean’s Blonde album art. “I guess I’m nervous because my hair grows really slowly, so...

Twitter Has A Lot To Say About Frank Ocean's Skin-Care Routine

Many people know Frank Ocean for his lyrical genius and his entertaining Instagram page. (I mean, clips of Brad Pitt breaking it down on the dance floor? Epic!) But apparently Ocean has a whole other area of expertise: skin care. For GQ's latest cover story, the music artist spilled the details on his skin regimen and explained how men need to do better when it comes to their nighttime routines. Sure, he also touched on politics and music in his interview, but there's something extra special ab...

Hollywood's Bleach-Blonde Bro Club Just Gained Another Member

We're talking about dudes. Yep, the streets of L.A. are starting to resemble Eminem's performance of The Real Slim Shady at the 2000 MTV VMAs.

The 30 Best New Musical Artists of 2018

Amnesia Scanner Amnesia Scanner is the experimental electronic duo of Ville Haimala and Martti Kalliala. Created in late 2013, the group is not exactly new, but they have remained somewhat unrecognizable and wholly inaccessible until this year. As they used to refuse interviews and released several unannounced, unexplained EP's and mixtapes, Amnesia Scanner floated around as illegible codes for devoted listeners to decipher. Every track title was prefaced by "AS", and each music video reg...

These Self-Help Books Will Fix Your Life

As great as self-help books can be, they sometimes have a reputation for being cheesy, overly earnest, or unrealistically optimistic.While they may not contain the "key to happiness " or fulfill any particularly lofty promises, they can, at the very least, help to normalize what you're feeling or experiencing, says Marcia Norman, PsyD, a clinical psychologist in Winter Park, FL. In the same way that you might listen to a sad song or watch a tearjerker movie when you're feeling down, reading a s...

Col3trane – “Tyler” Video

Col3trane is a London teen making pop-leaning R&B. His recent single "Tyler," the closing track on his EP-length Boot mixtape, reminds me of early Frank Ocean, which is apparently a comparison he gets a lot.

Frank Ocean Reportedly Takes Legal Action Against Travis Scott Over Astroworld

Travis Scott's massively popular Astroworld is a strange, gooey soup of an album. Individual songs switch up multiple times, as if every track is really two or three tracks mashed together. Voices, some of them belonging to very famous people, drop in and out without a whole lot of observable logic. Sounds mutate. More »
