Whatever genius they have over at Yandy in charge of translating popular characters into scratchy lingerie for Halloween has really outdone themselves this year. Give that man (or woman! Haha, as if) a raise! For once, instead of just offering up skimpy polyester panties that will give you a yeast infection and leave you shivering all night packaged as “Glamorous Wonderlady”, they’ve offered a poignant musing on sexism and the patriarchy; with an ironic twist! This year, Yandy created the “Brave Red Maiden” costume, inspired by everybody’s favorite dramedy, The Handmaid’s Tale. Unfortunately, too many people hate fun because Yandy has bowed to pressure and taken it off the shelves. Boo!
Nordstrom has the attention of the perpetually outraged today by selling a $530 pair of sneakers which are artfully scuffed and look like they’re being held together with a piece of tape. USA Today claims that shoppers are “outraged” and demanding answers. I get it, glamorizing poverty isn’t a great look, but is that really what’s going on here? Is Nordstrom launching a campaign of terror against poor people by mocking them with unattainable fashion? Or, are they merely scamming wealthy Americans into buying very, very ugly things? Or could there be a third possibility, one with a global reach that cuts to the core of the human condition? We investigate the geopolitical ramifications of the commodification of poverty in this special report titled: Rich Shoe/Poor Shoe.
Balthazar Getty #tooktotwitter To Defend Farrah Abraham Against Vivica A. Fox And Some Lady Named “Scary Mary”
Hold onto your hats folks, I’m about to go drop some proper Dlisted dynamite on that ass. This story features not 1, not 2, but 3 “celebrities” who are out here #inthesestreets punching and scratching their way to the lower-middle. Or upper-bottom. Ok, middle-bottom. Balthazar Getty worked himself into quite a tizzy and #tooktotwitter to rush to the defense of Farrah Abraham who appeared on Vivica A. Fox’s new talk show called Face The Truth. Were drugs involved? Yes they were. Is one of the participants a middle aged DJ/Rapper? Yes they are. Did somebody get called a C-U-NEXTTUESDAY? Abso-fucking-lutely.
Jordan Peele has been on a serious roll since his directorial debut Get Out took off like Jesse Owens at the starting block. Not too long ago he announced his next feature film will be another sociopolitical horror film called Us starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke and, most horrifying of all, active Scientologist Elisabeth Moss. It was also announced that his production company Monkeypaw would be producing a reboot of the mind-fucking classic The Twilight Zone. Now Jordan’s just announced that he’s also going to be stepping into Rod Serling’s loafers and hosting it as well!
Eddie Murphy has got a lot of mouths to feed and tuition to pay so he’s getting back on his grind. His last big movie was 2012’s A Thousand Words and he’s had like 12, 13 kids since then (ok 2, but who’s counting besides his accountant). According to Deadline, Eddie’s next project will be a movie that’s “inspired” by Grumpy Old Men and will be produced and directed by Jim Story who makes money hand over fist with movies like Ride Along and Ride Along 2 (Ride Along 3 is in post). Also Think Like a Man and Think Like a Man Too. Not to mention Fantastic 4 and Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. I don’t know about you, but I’m sensing a pattern.
Nobody’s favorite band, 30 Seconds to Mars, has new merchandise so now you too can look like a middle aged hipster with a penchant for silk and a Jesus complex! Jared Leto seems to be taking his cues from Kanye West and believes he too, has a deeper understanding of the universe and how it has shaped the American psyche and that existence on a higher level of consciousness can only be translated through the mediums of social media and ugly, overpriced “fashion”. Now, if your common Target brand little brain is ready for some real art, please proceed.
