Let’s not compare Ariana Grande’s Coachella performance to Beyoncé’s

Last year on the Coachella stage, Beyoncé, the first woman of color to headline the iconic festival, gave a two-hour performance of a lifetime, complete with a marching band and a Destiny’s Child reunion. It was so incredible, there’s even going to be a Netflix documentary about it.

The Best Performance Socks for Running, Golfing, and Everything in Between

Socks are often an afterthought. But if you think of the foot as one of the most important parts of the human body—it supports your full weight, keeps you upright, and helps you twist, turn, walk, run, jump, and more—socks become a hell of a lot more important, huh? And the more time you spend on the court (or trails or treadmill), the more you realize that skimping on footwear can be a true detriment to performance, increasing your risk of blisters, pain, and even injury. Plus, no one wants to strip off wet, soggy socks post-workout. You need performance socks.


Hit the Gym in the Best New Training Gear of 2019 (So Far)

Fortunately, dressing your dogs doesn’t have to mean scouring department store shelves for the latest sport offerings . There are plenty of high-end brands with affordable options you can shop online. Here are seven of the best performance socks for the most common sports and disciplines. Put your feet first so you can focus on the game.

Best Coolers

1. Balega Blister Resist No Show Running Socks

Best for: running

Runners know cotton socks have no place in a training routine. And once you become a sock snob—i.e. you’ve slipped on Balega’s performance socks—there’s no going back.  Most of their options are made with comfortable mohair fiber, have moisture-wicking tech against blisters, and varying amounts of padding. We like Blister Resist, the company’s anti-blister line, which lives up to its name—even in soaking-wet marathons.

[$ 13; balega.com

Balega

2. Bombas Performance Golf Ankle Sock

Best for: golf

Bombas’ new line of golf socks puts comfort first (think: extra padding at the arch) so you won’t be limping around after a day on the links. The under-toe area—where your dogs tend to sweat and overheat the most (if you use Athlete’s Foot spray, you’re familiar)—is built with mesh, too, to keep you cool and (hopefully) dry, important for those balmy days on the course.

3. Pedestal 4.0 weightlifting socks

Best for: weightlifting

Bad socks slip and slide, show stains, wind up smelling, and hole up after an unacceptably low amount of wear. Pedestal’s socks? They’re designed to be worn sans shoes. They’ve got an open toe box, which means you’ve got room to spread out for stability, plus they’re sticky enough to keep you rooted in your stance during heavy lifts. Better yet, thanks to an antimicrobial silver treatment, you only have to wash them every two to three workouts (and the treatment works against bacteria for at least 50 washes). These bad boys are known to sell out, so invest ASAP.

[$ 29.99; pedestalfootwear.com]

4. Zensah Match Point Tennis Socks

Best for: tennis

Ask a tennis player: The quick stops and starts, lateral movements, and sprint work of the sport call for a special kind of sock—namely one that can stand up to serious sweat and protect your feet from the demand of fast movements. Zensah’s Match Point Tennis Socks are padded where you need shock absorption (the heel and forefront) but tight at the top—a practical requirement for play. You’ll minimize slipping and impact and maximize support at your ankle. Don’t want to go all white? They’ve got a sleek black and neon yellow colorway as well.

[$ 15.99; zensah.com]

5. Swiftwick Aspire Zero cycling socks

Best for: cycling

Cyclists have never gone wrong with Swiftwick’s favorite compression sock, the Aspire. It’s latest version, Zero, a no-show option that sits just above your shoe (so no blisters), delivers what you’ve always loved: just-tight-enough compression that works to alleviate the fatigue of endurance work. They’re especially great on hot days when you don’t want to rock a calf sock.

[$ 13.99; swiftwick.com]

6. SmartWool PhD Outdoor Light Print Crew hiking socks

Best for: hiking

Thru-hikers and day-trippers alike know that wool isn’t just a winter thing when it comes to socks—and that, with a little bit of foresight and research, packing an extra pair of socks for a day in the mountains isn’t always necessary. SmartWool PhD Outdoor Light Print Crew socks are crafted with merino wool, a strong, stink-free  fabric that naturally heats and cools, meaning it stands up to finicky spring weather and long days of work. It’s versatile enough to work with whatever trail shoe you’ve got and the crew length pairs with low trail boots and sneakers alike, protecting your lower legs from sticks and branches. Trippy new patterns help you stand out (in a good way), too.

[$ 22.95; smartwool.com]

7. RDX MMA Grip Socks

Best for: wrestling/MMA

These neoprene socks are part clothes for your feet, part brace support, part performance must. In short, they let you take your footwork to new heights. The underfoot grips for the mat prevent slips and maximize traction, lessening the likelihood of twisted ankles or injured tendons.

Genre: Performing Arts

Publish Date: June 29, 2016

Publisher: APGRD, University of Oxford

Seller: APGRD


Medea, a performance history is a multimedia/interactive guide to the production history of Euripides’ Medea – an ancient Greek tragedy about a mother who, betrayed by her husband, exacts revenge by killing her children. First performed nearly 2,500 years ago, and continually reinvented since, Medea remains the most controversial yet alluring female role in the history of theatre worldwide.    This multimedia/interactive ebook draws on a unique collection of archival material and research at the APGRD (Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama) at the University of Oxford and uses images, film, unique interviews and digital objects to tell the story of a play that has inspired countless interpretations, onstage and onscreen, in dance, drama and opera across the globe from antiquity to the present.

Al Sharpton Calls Out Travis Scott For Upcoming Super Bowl Performance

Al Sharpton Calls Out Travis Scott For Upcoming Super Bowl Performance

Source: Chip Somodevilla / Getty

Travis Scott might seriously want to reconsider his upcoming participation in this year’s Super Bowl halftime show. With Meek Mill and Jay-Z reportedly not fond of the idea, Al Sharpton is the latest big name calling out the Astroworld rapper.

Rev Al didn’t bite his tongue and pretty much called Scott a hypocrite for allegedly accepting the gig while speaking with TMZ.

“I think anyone that goes into the halftime show is in effect directly violating those that want to raise the question that the NFL should come to terms with what they have done and continue to do to Colin Kaepernick and those that protest on criminal justice issues.”

“You can’t tell people to stand for those that take a knee and don’t go to the games and then say ‘but somebody ought to perform there and entertain. You’re drawing TV viewers, you’re bringing supporters, and I think that you can’t have it both ways. You can’t help people market something and then turn around and say you agree with the people protesting.”

 “I think he should do what a lot of other major artists have done: say ‘I’m not going to participate.’ You can’t fight against Jim Crow and then go sit in the back of the bus.

Well, tell him how you really feel Rev.

The Super Bowl halftime show is currently having issues locking down talent. Maroon 5 is reportedly locked in but have not been confirmed yet, Cardi B who is featured on a song with the band was rumored to be joining them, but that looks like it won’t be the case. It’s quite clear nobody wants Scott to do the show, and it would entirely put a stain on what was a stellar year for the rapper.

You can see Sharpton eloquently slam Travis in the clip below.

Performance Driven: The Best Highlights From Apple’s WWDC 2018 Event

Apple CEO Tim Cook Kicks Off Worldwide Developers Conference

Source: Justin Sullivan / Getty

Today (June 4), led by Tim Cook, Apple held their annual WWDC event, and the focus was entirely on improving the performance of their products with iOS 12, watchOS 5, macOS Mojave and Apple TV. We break down the best highlights from the highlights from the event. 

iOS 12

Apple’s software VP, Craig Federighi made it entirely clear to the attendees in the room that “for iOS 12, we are doubling down on performance.” Being that recent iOS updates have been very buggy lately this focus is warranted. There are definitely some new additions, changes, and improvements coming to your iPhone, IPads worth looking forward too.

Screen Time

Google introduced its digital well-being dashboard called Android P which wants to help users limit their phone use. Apple is aiming for the same with its new Screen Time feature which breaks down exactly how much you are using your iPhone and individual apps. Like Android P it will allow you to set a time limit for each app which will warn you when you are about hit your time limit and hit you with a “time’s up” message once the timer runs out.

Group FaceTime

If you always wanted to be able to facetime more than just one friend at one time the good folks at Apple have heard your cry. Thanks to iOS 12, you can now start a Facetime session that will feature up to 32 people. Now why you would want to be a part of a group text but with video is beyond us. We can see this feature being beneficial for conference calls maybe.

Photos

Apple is taking another page out of Google’s book with how iOS 12 will handle and store your photos. iOS 12 will now offer search suggestions, filter and effect suggestions as well as suggesting which friends to share the photo with. Honestly, something you similarly experience if you utilize Google Photo’s app BUT if you don’t want to download a Google on your iPhone (there are people like this) this update is for you.

Siri Gets An Upgrade

Apple is allowing third-party developers more integration with Siri giving them the ability to create shortcuts for the favorite digital assistant.

Lil Wayne Issues An Apology to His Fans For Backing Out of His Rolling Loud Performance

Source: Lil’ Wayne performs during the ‘Pink Friday Tour’ at the James L. Knight Center Miami, Florida – 24.07.12 Where: United States When: 24 Jul 2012 Credit: Aaron Gilbert/ WENN

This past Sunday night (May 13) Lil Wayne was scheduled to take the stage as the headliner for the Rolling Loud festival but much to the dismay of his fans, Weezy was a no show.

Just a few days before Weezy was spotted turning up at LIV with his former “daddy,” Birdman as they continue to repair their personal relationship while trying to get their business end straight.

Instagram Photo

Knowing he’d disappointed a gang of Weezy loyalists, the pint sized rapper took to Twitter to apologize to his fan base who’d attended the event to see his dreds whip around on stage only to go home empty handed.

Well at least he apologized for missing out. These days fans are putting hands on rappers crews for backing out of their contractual duties.

The festival also decided to put out a statement on the situation and reminded fans that even without Wayne, they have a pretty deep lineup scheduled.

Last night, Lil Wayne fell unexpectedly ill ahead of his set time and had to cancel his appearance at Rolling Loud Miami. We apologize to the fans and hope that some of the special guest appearances throughout the weekend, such as Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj, Diddy, A$ AP Rocky, hometown hero DJ Khaled, the Waffle House Hero, and the two baristas fired by Duke made for an enjoyable experience. We have a longstanding and healthy partnership with Lil Wayne and his team, and look forward to continuing to work with him and having him on a Rolling Loud stage in the near future.

But for anyone hoping to catch a Weezy show they should be looking forward to Lil Weezyana Fest this summer in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Wayne’s fan favorite album, Tha Carter III.

Andrea Crews to Stage Fashion Show Process As Performance

PERFORMANCE: Andrea Crews founder Maroussia Rebecq is taking the concept of backstage access to new heights. The Paris-based designer, who launched her label in 2002 as an art project geared around upcycling vintage garments, plans to stage the preparations for her fall 2018 co-ed show as a performance, titled “How to Make a Great Fashion Show.”
From today through Jan. 17, Rebecq, along with the members of her collective, will hold castings and fittings, shoot the brand’s look book and hold the final hair and makeup tests in the Le Cœur gallery in Paris’ Marais district. The actual show will be held on Jan. 20 during Paris Men’s Collections, with the location yet to be confirmed.
“This period, from now through to the show, is a very intense period where we’re building the story of our collection. This year we wanted to make an event out of it,” said Rebecq. “It will also allow for some distance from what I do. Preparing for a show can be both a highly stressful and beautiful experience, and for me gathering everyone together in a performance will make it more of a joyful, playful event.”
The designer, who is 40 but sees herself “very much as a Millennial,”

Bill Murray Tees Up Performance Golf Blazer

Feeling the need to dress up on the golf course? Bill Murray has the answer.
The actor and avid golfer — who carries an enviable 7.2 handicap — has created what is being billed as the first performance blazer to be worn on the links.
On Thursday, William Murray Golf, a company created last fall by Bill Murray and his brothers, will unveil the Serious Business Tartan Blazer in the Murray family tartan pattern along with pants to match. The two-button, single-vent blazer is made from 95 percent polyester and 5 percent spandex in a two-way stretch shell and a four-way stretch lining. The blazer also offers UPF 50+ sun protection, is moisture-wicking and wrinkle-resistant.
It will retail for $ 210 on the William Murray Golf site.
The jacket is just the latest irreverent twist from the William Murray Golf collection, which has attracted high-profile investors such as Andy Roddick, Brooklyn Decker, Kendra Scott and others.
The line features plaid panels on shorts with a golf club pattern, camouflage polos and tropical mum patterns on button-down shirts. The collection was created “on the notion that life and golf don’t have to be so serious. Keep it light, have fun and bring personality onto the course.”

Maria Grazia Chiuri Designs Costumes for Guggenheim Dance Performance

When “Falls the Shadow,” a new dance production commissioned by Works & Process and created by American Ballet Theatre principal Daniil Simkin, debuts in the famous rotunda of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York on Sept. 4, the dancers will be wearing costumes specially designed for the performance by Maria Grazia Chiuri of Dior.
To some extent, the rotunda is where the design process began, nearly a year prior, when Chiuri cochaired the Guggenheim International Gala, hosted by Dior. “Basically, we approached Maria Grazia at the gala,” said Simkin. “Obviously Dior was the primary fashion house we wanted to work with.”
The choreography and staging required special considerations, as “Falls the Shadow” will be performed in the rotunda with the audience standing on the ramps surrounding it for an aerial view. Additionally, the dancers’ movements will be captured in real-time by motion sensors, generating 3-D, mapped projections on the rotunda to connect technology, music, fashion and dance.
Chiuri attended a rehearsal in New York and Simkin and the production team sent her videos of the choreography and 3-D mapping to give her an idea of what the costumes would require. “What’s special about the piece is that it’s going to be

Drake’s Manager Says Apple Did Not Block Performance; Tidal Claims To Have Proof

(AllHipHop News) Lil Wayne’s attempt to show love to his city by hosting the first Lil Weezyana Fest appeared to turn into the latest battle between Apple and Tidal. When Drake hit the stage at the New Orleans event, the live stream on Tidal shut down.

[ALSO READ: Drake’s Performance At ‘Lil Weezyana Fest’ Blocked From Streaming On Tidal Due To Apple Interference]

The Jay Z fronted company accused Apple of blocking Tidal from streaming Drake. According to reports, Apple threatened to sue Tidal for $ 20 million if the Toronto entertainer appeared on the platform.

Drake signed a reported $ 19 million exclusive deal with the tech giant’s new streaming service Apple Music. However, team Drizzy claimed Apple had nothing to do with him not appearing on Tidal’s live broadcast.

“The decision to not have Drake participate in the Tidal stream has nothing to do with Apple or Drake’s deal,” Drake’s manager Future the Prince told BuzzFeed. “I made a business decision. Apple doesn’t have the power to stop us from being part of a live stream. The only people that have the power to do that are Cash Money and Universal, and they’re our partners.”

Tidal then countered Future’s statement by claiming they have proof Apple was involved in the black-out. A representative for Tidal issued a response to Buzzfeed but chose not to provide evidence.

“We have all the email receipts and written correspondence that took place with said, blocked performance. That being said we choose to keep it classy,” stated a Tidal spokesperson.

The Lil Weezyana Fest situation may still be unclear at the moment, but Future the Prince’s statement did confirmed that Drake is still officially signed to Cash Money Records. There had been speculation whether the OVO leader’s latest project If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late was his final album for the label, therefore making him a free agent.

Will Apple Sue Tidal For $20 Million Over Drake Performance?

Drake performed at a charity event for his friend and kinda sorta boss Lil Wayne. It was for the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, an event that decimated Wayne’s native New Orleans.

Well, Drake’s deal with Apple Music prompted a blackout of the Canadians performance, which was being streamed live on Tidal.

Now, there are rumors that Apple may sue Tidal.

The New York Post reports:

Apple Music declared war on rival streaming service, Jay Z’s Tidal, over Drake’s appearance at a charity concert to benefit kids affected by Hurricane Katrina. Tidal faces being sued for $ 20 million if it streamed Apple artist Drake’s brief two-song appearance at the Friday night show.

Apple Music execs were not happy when Drake was confirmed to perform at Lil Wayne’s Lil WeezyAna Fest in New Orleans Friday night, even though the festival benefits Tha Carter Fund, which supports after-school programs in Louisiana.
Lawyers were called in because the event was being streamed live via Tidal — and Drake has an exclusive deal with Apple Music said to be worth up to $ 19 million. Sources say the tech giant threatened to sue for $ 20 million if Drake appeared, or if his music was streamed live, on Tidal.

A source told us, “Legal letters have been sent to Tidal warning that Drake cannot appear on the Tidal stream of the festival, either solo or part of a group, and if the warning was ignored, the liabilities could be up to $ 20 million.
“This event is for charity, Drake is doing two songs. Why does Apple think it can dictate to artists where and when they can perform?”

The Post reported Drake has a $ 19 million deal with Apple as one of the artists who helped them launch their new streaming service.

Drake’s Performance At ‘Lil Weezyana Fest’ Blocked From Streaming On Tidal Due To Apple Interference

(AllHipHop News) The streaming wars just got very messy. Tidal exclusively streamed Lil Wayne’s “Lil Weezyana Fest” in New Orleans last night (August 28), and Tunechi brought out several guests including Juvenile, Turk, Mannie Fresh, and Master P. But when Wayne was ready to bring his Young Money artist Drake to the stage, the live stream cut off.

The screen just included the following message:

Tidal-Apple

Reports began circulating earlier in the evening that Apple threatened to sue Tidal for $ 20 million if the platform streamed Drake performing. The Toronto native sign a reported $ 19 million exclusive deal with Apple. This fight comes after Tidal financier Jay Z suggested Apple was running a smear campaign against his company back in April.

Lil Wayne is a part owner of Tidal along with other artists such as Beyoncé, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, J. Cole, Kanye West, Madonna, Alicia Keys, and Usher. Proceeds from Wayne’s “Lil Weezyana Fest” were to benefit kids affected by Hurricane Katrina.

“This event is for charity, Drake is doing two songs,” a source told Page Six. “Why does Apple think it can dictate to artists where and when they can perform?”

Kanye West Brings Rihanna Onstage For Surprise Performance At FYF Fest

Kanye West just pulled a Taylor Swift. 

During his performance at FYF Fest on Saturday in Los Angeles, the rapper (who filled in for Frank Ocean) surprised the audience when he brought Rihanna onstage with him. The resident bad gal also seemed surprised, as she was just taking in the show from the crowd.

But like the pro she is, RiRi took the mic when West handed it to her during his performance of “FourFiveSeconds,” which she’s featured on. She then turned to the crowd and said, “LA, make some noise for my n***a Kanye!” 

The rapper, who’s married to reality queen Kim Kardashian, also got the Barbadian performer up onstage to sing her part of “All of the Lights.” Naturally, the audience went nuts. 

You can check out some video highlights below:

West was a last-minute addition to the roster, stepping in for Ocean, who dropped out last week, Gossip Cop reported.

 ”We’re really sorry that due to a scheduling conflict beyond our control, Frank Ocean is not going to be able to appear at FYF Festival as planned,” Ocean’s reps said in a statement obtained by Entertainment Weekly.

They added that he “had really been looking forward to the performance and to seeing all of his fans.” But West paid homage to his fellow hip-hop artist by opening his set with the track “No Church in the Wild,” which features Ocean’s vocals. 

Kanye West to the rescue — all day, all day.

Story of Kansas Trans Man Told in “Dance Moms” Performance

2015-07-16-1437086932-5855971-jaypryor.jpg

Jay Pryor was born a girl named “Janet” in a rural Kansas community. Today he is a trans man with a wife and kids who still resides in Kansas. The intervening years were often painful and confusing; they almost became tragic.

Jay shared his story of transition as part of the music/theater project I direct entitled it gets better. It tours across the country and includes a week of outreach to schools and community organizations. Recently we were contacted by the television show Dance Moms because a producer saw our show and was especially interested in Jay’s story. Jay agreed to participate and flew to Los Angeles to record the episode alongside our cast.

The resulting dance piece features a song (also from the stage show) entitled “Run, Run, Run” by the Danish artists Kier and Sascha DuPont. The song is intended to capture the push and pull of forces that Jay experiences as a young trans person, first running away from something and then realizing he was running toward something else.

The episode airs on 7/21 but the producers also put together this special video to offer greater detail about Jay’s story behind the dance. It also captures the gentle curiosity and openness of the young dancers as they meet a trans individual for the first time.

The live production of it gets better will next be staged at the University of Northern Iowa’s Gallagher Bluedorn Center on September 12. Jay Pryor is planning to attend the engagement as a special guest. The show is a co-production of GMCLA, Speak Theater Arts and the It Gets Better Project.

Fondazione Prada to Host Performance Art Project

Fondazione Prada will hold its first performance art project this fall.

Called “Atlas of Gesture,” the performance will be held at the art institution’s Milanese headquarters from Sept. 18 to Oct. 3.

Conceived by dancer and choreographer Virgilio Sieni, who is also the director of Venice Biennale’s dance section, the project will involve both professional and amateur dancers who will perform on the two levels of the site’s Podium area. The dancers will interact with the statues of the “Serial Classic” exhibition, which currently occupies the space, in order to create a contrast between the dynamic dancing bodies and the static nature of the sculptures.

“Atlas of Gesture” will include five different parts, called Origin, Ritual, Announcement, Gravity and Nudity.

Bob Costas Doesn’t Have Time For Your Bulls–t Pitching Performance

Bob Costas has called some games, you know? You could even say he’s called some of the great games in the history of U.S. sports. So when you step up to the mound and you know Bob Costas is on the mic, you better bring it. You better bring it every goddamned time. And if you don’t, well, he sure as hell will bring it for you.

Such was life for Chicago Cubs pitcher Pedro Strop on Friday after he gave up a home run, hit a batter, walked a batter and then got pulled out of the game only to point to the sky, much to Costas’ apparent disapproval.


Chicago Cubs pitcher Pedro Strop apparently did not not play to Bob Costas’ liking.

Bob Costas doesn’t have time for this bullshit. Seriously, does this look like the face of a man who messes around? No, it does not.

Kanye West Pissed Billboard Censored His Performance To Oblivion

It doesn’t take much to throw Kanye West off his mood game but he arguably has a case after the noise-cancelling job the Billboard Music Awards producers did during his performance of “All Day” and “Black Skinhead.”

As we reported earlier, the original live televised version missed a few n-word bombs but by the time it aired for us on the West Coast, the producers just threw in the towel and pushed the mute button.

Now, hell is waiting around the corner for payback.

Reports TMZ:

Kanye West is pissed off at the Billboard Awards for heavily censoring his performance of “All Day” and “Black Skinhead” because he says they cut his audio even when he wasn’t dropping profanities.

Kanye’s mostly-silenced closing act was the talk of the award show — but sources close to the rapper tell us producers knew when he was going to curse because he gave them the lyrics exactly as he performed them … and yet they yanked his audio for up to 15 seconds at a time.

Our sources point out that during “Black Skinhead” a lot of clean lyrics were censored. For instance, the lines — “My leather black jeans on” … and “Middle America” were dropped. In other cases, it appears the censor had an itchy trigger finger, and pulled the audio several seconds early.

As we reported … Kanye did not attend final rehearsal — but we’re told that’s because doctors had him on vocal rest. He even needed a cortisone shot over the weekend. Still, he did 2 rehearsals in L.A. earlier in the week for Billboard.

As for the fact you couldn’t see Kanye — we’re told he gave producers a specific note about changing lighting and camera angles. We’re told Yeezy’s a perfectionist when it comes to his final product, and feels like they screwed him.

His people also released an infuriated statement:

Kanye West was grossly over-censored at the Billboard Music Awards. Non-profane lyrics such as “with my leather black jeans on” were muted for over 30 second intervals. As a result, his voice and performance were seriously misrepresented.

It is ridiculous that in 2015, unwarranted censorship is something that artists still have to fight against.

Although West was clearly set up to face elements beyond his control during the live broadcast, he would like to apologize to the television audience who were unable to enjoy the performance the way he envisioned.

Performance Artist Mad At Jay Z Over “Picasso Baby” Deal

Marina Abramović, the famed performance artist, is angry at Jay Z, alleging that the Hip-Hop mogul used her for his rap video “Picasso Baby.”

The the Serbian artist said that her appearance was contingent on Jay Z donating to her institute when the song premiered two years ago.

The artist told Spike magazine that she was “pissed” at Jay Z for not giving as he allegedly promised. Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film was partially inspired by Abramović’s 2010 performance The Artist is Present. In the “Picasso Baby” video, Jay Z rapped the song for six hours, whereas Abramović didn’t move for 736 hours at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

“He adapted my work under one condition: That he would help my institute, which he didn’t,” the 68-year-old artist said. “In the end it was only a one-way transaction. I will never do it again.”
She maintains she was “completely used” by Jay Z.

Neither Roc Nation of Jay Z has commented on Abramović’s allegations.

Jennifer Lopez Apparently Texted All Through Mariah Carey’s Billboard Awards Performance

Jennifer Lopez didn’t seem super enthralled by Mariah Carey’s performance at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night.

A video clip caught the “Booty” singer texting and scrolling through her phone while Carey sang “Infinity,” which TMZ is interpreting as a “diss.”

Lopez has denied that there is any feud between her and Carey and has insisted that she’s a fan of the singer. And while that might be true, Sunday night, she just seemed to be a bigger fan of her phone. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Politics as Performance: From Obama’s Luther to Huckabee’s Christ

Listen to this companion podcast on SiriusXM POTUS 124.

As the White House Correspondents’ Dinner reliably demonstrates, performance is the new politics. By tapping comedy, drama and other forms of storytelling influencers can access strategies they’d normally never employ.

Consider the recent dinnertime plays that Barack Obama’s ran, all to set the record straight on his presidency, set traps for any GOP successor, and put journalists in their places.  Whether delivered directly or through Luther, Obama’s brilliant comedian-proxy, Keegan-Michael Key, the president did more agenda-setting in one evening than a dozen serious-minded sit-downs.  Here are some examples:

“Six years into my presidency some people still say I’m arrogant, aloof, condescending. Some people are so dumb.”  His play was a counter-intuitive Lantern, the strategy that volunteers a player’s shortcomings and one he’s loath to run in more serious settings.

“Soon, the first presidential contest will take place, and I for one cannot wait to see who the Koch brothers pick. It’s exciting.” His line was delivered as a kidding Ping, but it had all the power of a caustic Call Out on the Kochs’ use of new election laws.

Obama: “We count on the press to shed light on the most important issues of the day.”  Luther: “And we can count on FOX to terrify old white people with some nonsense!”  This was another masked Call Out, made possible by the venue and the expectation for barbs.  But more than the play, its genius was in the proxy who fired shots for Obama.

This is to say that in the Plays for the Presidency 2016, those who seek the oval office will be naturally advantaged if their politics are rooted in performance.  Of this week’s newly-announced candidates, one got it, two didn’t.

When the former Republican Carly Florina sniped in her dour video announcement, “Our founders never envisioned a professional political class,” we were informed of the former tech CEO’s opinion on the Clintons but cooled to Carly personally.

Contrast this to the former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who declared from his Hope, Ark., perch, “I grew up blue-collar, not blue-blood.” We are informed on the pastor-politician’s opinion of Bill and Hillary, but the tone is self-effacing, and it dovetails with the Huckabee slogan, I like Mike.

Fiorina’s might as well be, I hate Hillary.

Here’s more from Huckabee this week, each quote having the impact of a Call Out on progressives but presenting as a more noble Challenge to conservatives.  Note, too, his shrewd use of the framing play we call a Screen, all to invoke the all-American staples of Western genre movies and a Christian God:

“I wonder if [Obama] could watch a Western from the 50s and be able to figure out who the good guys and the bad guys really are. As president…we will deal with jihadis just as we would deal with deadly snakes.”

“As Americans, we ought to get onto our knees every night and thank God we still live in a country that people are trying to break into rather than one they’re trying to break out of.”

The other declared candidate, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, was no better than Fiorina.  Like Clinton, Cruz, Paul, Rubio, Sanders, Walker, Webb and others, Carson’s announcement was an oddly wonky monologue, enabled by framing strategies to invoke the likes of Lincoln and MLK and neatly side-step obvious questions of the good doctor’s qualifications.

Campaigning is serious business. So is the strategy that directs it.  But what was once straight-faced talking points on civics and citizenship is quickly morphing into soaring sermons where dramatics, and particularly comedy, are thriving and where the better actors are sure to hold our attention.

U2 made it a “beautiful day” for some commuters in NYC earlier this week, and now you can experience the fun, too.

“The Tonight Show” finally premiered the full video of U2’s surprise subway show on Friday. News broke that the band was dressing in disguise and filming a segment when cell phone vids of the performance started hitting the Internet — and now it’s easy to see what all the fuss was about.

As you can see in the video, the disguises work a little too well at first, but a big reveal by Jimmy Fallon and a few bars of the band’s 1988 hit “Desire” seemed to get people’s attention.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.

What Happens in Marfa Stays in Marfa: D.S. & Durga’s Sonic Perfume Performance

Marfa perfume

Before David Moltz made it big in the business of base notes with D.S. & Durga, the Brooklyn-based perfume house that he runs with his wife and design-partner, the self-taught nose was something of a serial band-organizer. His first fledgling musical act was formed in the fourth grade. “That one was a two-piece called Satan’s Little Helpers. I banged on a plastic yellow box and sang and my friend played the guitar. Our first album was going to be called, The Rings of Saturn are Plaid!

Following an early-aughts run in Boston with his college band, Moonraker, and another round of touring eight years ago with Brooklyn’s pastoral, heavy-on-the-Americana outfit Salt & Samovar, Moltz traded in his electric guitars for small batches of essential oils and essences. But transitioning from one pursuit to the other came with its advantages. “I was able to start taking my creative ideas and have them come out through perfume.”



D.S. & Durga El Cosmico perfume

That progression was on full display last night at Liz Lambert’s buzz-y El Cosmico hotel in Marfa, Texas, where Moltz and his new band, Copal Opal, were busy setting up his ambitious new scent machine in the middle of the property’s tee-pee. “It’s a centrifugal fan that people sit around,” Moltz explained of the circular apparatus designed by the artist Bruce Johanns. “I have sixteen foot pedals that spray an accord into the fan as I play, and it blows back out to the people.” As intimate groups of 25 filled the canvas structure to take in two different sets of the foursome’s “West African, pseudo-Celtic-Viking, American Delta” stylings, they found themselves at the center of a live music and perfume performance via pulses of notes like radiant ylang ylang, dark amber, and smoke, which permeated the desert air and intermingled with the sonic tones.

The scent installation was organized to celebrate the launch of a new D.S. & Durga fragrance, created for the boutique desert property (and now available for pre-order), that boasts hints of sumac, creosote, pinyon pine, oak, mesquite, sand, and woods. “I’m parlaying the success of the perfume into the music,” explains Moltz, who adds that this is the first show for his imaginative scent system—but definitely not the last. “The band will play without it,” he insists, but should a contained, downtown gallery space materialize, he certainly wouldn’t turn it down.

Root Canal or Annual Performance Review?

I hate the annual performance review. I hate it. I hate it the way I hate cleaning toilets and running in to work people outside of work.

Oh, yeah…hi! Soooo….out shopping? Awesome…wow, that is a LOT of lube, isn’t it? I didn’t know they sold Gummy bears in 50 lb. bags. OK then, I’ll see you on Monday.

I dread getting my annual judgement handed down to me. I am instantly transported back to the age where naps were part of school and when my favorite activity was building walls with big cardboard blocks and knocking them down with my boyfriend, Clarence.

I actually had two boyfriends in kindergarten, Clarence and Greg. I didn’t see the point in wasting time when it came to driving my mother out of her head.

Anyway, I hate the work performance review. First of all, if I am doing something wrong, then tell me that I’m doing something wrong. Don’t hoard them throughout the year and dump them on me all at once.

That has only happened a few times, mostly my reviews are awesome. One boss did ask if I could make an effort to not call him an asshole quite so often. My response was to tell him that was entirely up to him. If he didn’t act like an asshole, then I wouldn’t call him an asshole.

I also loathe the self evaluation forms. One place I worked had a form where they listed a crap ton of either/or scenarios and you and to pick between them. But the either/or scenarios were ridiculous. I don’t remember what they specifically said, by they were kind of like this:

Would you say in the past year you have:

A) Saved the company thousands of dollars telepathically

or

B) Left goat entrails on your neighbors’ doorstep

The other thing I hate about performance reviews is that they are presented by the boss. I have had some good bosses. The boss I have now seems nice and reasonable. He is approachable and pleasant. I can’t complain. I’ve had some bad bosses as well. A few I would say were insane. And that is what we all want, isn’t it? To be evaluated by some fucked up grand poobah on a power trip.

My last boss called me by the wrong name for the first 4 years and loved to bring criticism to performance reviews. He didn’t even know my name, but felt confident he could evaluate my work.

I once had a boss that smelled like boiled cabbage and licked the sores on his arms. He told me in a review that I needed to improve my appearance. He didn’t like the red streaks I had in my hair at the time. He licked his own sores yet felt qualified to judge my hair color choices.

I did have a boss that I got along with. We had a similar sense of humor and worked together well. That didn’t mean that I looked forward to the annual performance review, but did find the experience not quite as painful.

We had to write our own evaluation and turn it in before the actual review. I found one that I wrote for myself and turned in to my boss. This was from 2005.

I find it astounding that I’m expected to evaluate myself. The ways in which I am amazing are apparent and it seems a waste of my time and talent to have to write them down.

Speaking of talent, that is how I want to be referred to from now on. ‘The talent’. Also, and this is something I should have addressed a long time ago, I would like for you to speak to all the other employees and tell them that they are no longer to address me directly. In fact, I would prefer that they avert their eyes when I am in the same room.

As far as my actual talent and contributions go, it would take too long to list all of them and it really grates against my over-developed sense of humility to speak highly of myself. I will just hit the highlights:

Any gains for the company over the last year are entirely due to me. If not my actual effort, then the inspiration that oozes from me like glittery sweat infects those around me and makes them super employees.

My very breath is a cleaning agent. When I exhale, I make the world a better place.

I will agree to continue my employment here, but I do require the following:

I am sure we can both agree that there is no real way to quantify my contribution here. The joy that my presence brings to everyone here cannot be valued. Fortunately, my life is all about helping my fellow humans and I don’t require much. In addition to increasing my paycheck as much as you fucking can, I would also like a helicopter pad built outside my office. I realize this will cut the parking lot down and not everyone will be able to park in front of the building anymore. This shouldn’t pose a problem though, as there is street parking just a few blocks down. I would also like a chocolate milkshake every Thursday afternoon.

Oddly enough, he made me write a second evaluation.

True genius is always under-appreciated.
