Is this the end for Johnny Depp? Christian Dior is still paying the embattled actor millions, but insiders say it will take a miracle, or a new Tim Burton movie, for him to work in Hollywood again.

Johnny Depp leaving the High Court in London in February. Reuters In November Johnny Depp lost his libel case against a British tabloid that had labeled him a "wife beater" in an article about his ex-wife Amber Heard. Christian Dior has kept Depp as the face of its men's fragrance but is not airing ads in conservative markets, a perfume insider said. In May, Depp is set to go to trial again in a defamation case against Heard over an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post suggesting Depp a...

How Rusty Eye made COVID-safe music videos at LA’s legendary Jumbo’s Clown Room

When the pandemic hit back in March, many musical artists pivoted to some sort of livestreaming outlet to perform, chat or release fresh content. Los Angeles-based heavy metal trio Rusty Eye hasn’t gotten in the livestreaming game yet, but the band has been ferociously promoting its new album, “Dissecting Shadows,” which dropped on Oct. 23. It’s a fun and horror-filled record that plays out like a script from a slasher film with cuts like “Mrs. Baylock,” which pays homage to the character from t...

Take a Digital Drive Along Ed Ruscha’s Sunset Boulevard, the Famous Strip That the Artist Photographed from 1965 to 2007

Ed Ruscha has lived nearly 65 years in Los Angeles, but he insists that he has no particular fascination with the place. Not everyone believes him: is disinterest among the many possible feelings that could motivate a painting like The Los Angeles County Museum on Fire? Nevertheless, the plainspoken Oklahoma-born artist has long stuck to his story, perhaps in order to let his often cryptic work speak for itself. Originally trained in commercial art, Ruscha has painted, printed, drawn, an...

Rashes are Easy, Part 1 - The Life of a Hotel Doctor | By Mike Oppenheim

A woman at a Sunset Strip hotel had seen a doctor for an allergic rash, and now she wasn't feeling right. Rashes are easy, and her symptoms were probably medication side-effects, so I expected no problem. That seemed to be the case, and she agreed to stop the medicine.

Ella Fitzgerald’s Lost Interview about Racism & Segregation: Recorded in 1963, It’s Never Been Heard Until Now

When Ella Fitzgerald took the stage for the first time at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, “we heard a sound so perfect” that the entire theater went silent, says dancer and choreographer Norma Miller. “You could hear a rat piss on cotton.” Fitzgerald was 17 years old, and she had already faced severe racial discrimination. “Everything was race,” says Miller, describing the de facto segregation in Harlem in the 20s and 30s. “You couldn’t go out of your zone… slavery is over, but you don’t h...
