Lady Gaga's Lover Jo Calderone Models For Vogue Hommes Japan



With a shoot photographed by Nick Knight and styled by Nicola Formichetti, Lady Gaga's Male Lover Jo Calderone returns in a shoot for Vogue Hommes Japan.

Gaga's 'other half' had this to say about his new work and gal -


Where are you from?
Palermo, Sicily

How would you describe what you do / your occupation?
Mechanic for my dad’s business. This is the first time I’ve had my picture taken.

When did you discover you wanted to do this?
Well, I always helped my dad at work, since I was a kid. I thought it would be fun to have my picture taken.

What are your ambitions?
I’d love to own my own car shop, I have a bunch of my own ‘muscle’ cars. Maybe if I take some more pictures I can afford it.




What is your relationship with Lady Gaga?
I met her at a shoot Nick Knight was doing. She’s fuckin beautiful, and funny, and interesting. I was a little nervous for Nick to start shooting. She said, “Don’t be baby, you were “born this way.” I took her out after. The rest is private ;)

Sean Penn Tells It Like It Is To Wyclef Jean


Do you want the truth or something beautiful? Unfortunately we live in a society where some folks claim to wanna hear the truth but that's not always the realistic truth. Over at 'Urban Mogul-Life', they're debating whether or not Sean Penn's recent thoughts on Wyclef and his recent bid to run for the presidential election are justifiable. Wyclef was denied to run as president due to his failure of meeting residency requirements. They've been saying, some feel that " Sean has no right speaking on Haitian issues, while others feel that he has put in work and his opinion is just as valid as anyone else." How do we kiddas feel about this divided bridge? "Should Sean speak his mind or keep his thoughts silent?"

I say walk the walk rather than talk the talk. Put your money where your mouth is. It's quite obvious. Their should be no debate. What does, 'he has no right' mean. Um, excuse me, if anyone's bare hands are responsible in some way, even if what little fraction, for re-building and looking out for The Haitian people's well-being than say all you want Mister Penn! Wyclef is a perfect example of what singer-songwriter Paloma Faith was speaking about in her song "Do you want the truth or something beautiful?" The following lyrics state, " Secrets, lying, falling veils, I can be who you want me to be, Sacred, lies in, telling tales, I can be who you want me to be,But do you want me? Do you want the truth or something beautiful? Just close your eyes and make believe. Do you want the truth or something beautiful? I am happy to deceive you." Weirdly enough I can picture Wyclef singing these exact lyrics to the Haitian people. Go figure. I'm sure he would be quite happy to do so ;)



Either way, thee only persons opinion that matters in this case is that of Sean Penns. The following are only a few but critical analysis Sean wrote for the Huffington Post..."I have never met Wyclef Jean, and all I really know of him on any personal level has come through the fond comments of a few mutual friends. Hence, nothing I might say, was in ANY way personal, or intended to be lambasting to anyone. My comments were critical observations of a political candidate and a leader of an organization in Haiti."

"I was there for those 6 months after the earthquake and so many of us on the ground wondered where he was when that kind of attention was so necessary and absent, and why he was NOT helping to keep this desperate situation in the news."

"When he chose to attempt to discredit me, claiming on the Gayle King Show on August 9 that my time in Haiti had been restricted to ‘one particular area’, that area he was referring to is the 55,000 person IDP Camp that I and my organization were tasked to manage by the International Office of Migration. Indeed it is at that camp where we are based, but in fact, I and those I work with have operated 24-7 throughout the city of Port Au Prince and the country at large for all these months, distributing thousands of water filters, food, medicine, medical supplies and volunteers throughout the days and nights from the back of pick-up trucks and helicopters."

How do you feel Ladies and Gents???

Summer In The City



Here we have French singers France Gall & Julien Clerc visiting one of Morroco's most important cities, Marrakech in the Summer of 1967. While visiting this fine "Red City", the couple strutted in matching Morrocan outfits made up of "embroided tunics and kaftans."

Although it was the 60s, these kind of threads can still be found and worn nowadays. Apparently I just learned that most of these styles have been worn for centuries. It's all a matter of your own personal style and OF COURSE, thee occassion for which your dressing for. Some folks always seem to forget that last part.




The following is German song recorded by France Gall with lyrics translated in English and French which is rare to find.

Tout le monde parle d'amour
Malheureusement, pas toi
Toujours, toujours et encore de l'amour
Malheureusement, pas toi

Everybody talks about love
Unfortunatly not you
Always, always about love
Unfortunatly not you

Tout, tout le monde parle d'amour
Comme on parle du temps qu'il fait
Toujours, toujours et encore de l'amour
Mais toi, tu ne le fais pas

Everybody talks about love
As we talks about what the weather like
Everybody talks about love
But you, you don't.

Ce que l'on dit dans mille chansons
Je l'imagine venant de toi
Ce par quoi un jour le monde a commencé
Dis-le moi donc

What one says in thousand songs
I imagine it coming from you
It by what one day the world started
Say me this finally

Tout le monde parle d'amour
Malheureusement, pas toi
Toujours, toujours et encore de l'amour
Malheureusement, pas toi

Everybody talks about love
As we talks about what the weather like
Everybody talks about love
But you, you don't.

La chance et le cristal se brisent facilement
Si tu oublies qu'ils sont fragiles,
Car qu'arrivera-t-il
Si l'on s'embrasse sans être honnêtes ?

The chance and glass break easily
If you forget that they are fragile
Because what will happend
If we kiss each other without being honest?


Brise donc ton silence
Ne reste pas toujours muet
En amour, il faut justifier le bonheur
Renseigne-toi encore une fois

Thus break your silence
Do not remain always dumb
In love, it is necessary to justify the hapiness
Please learn more about it once again


Tout le monde parle d'amour
Malheureusement, pas toi
Toujours, toujours et encore de l'amour
Malheureusement, pas toi

Everybody talks about love
As we talks about what the weather like
Everybody talks about love
But you, you don't.

Martin Scorsese Directs New Chanel Cologne

Via PopEater



Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese lends his talents to Chanel to create a commercial for their new men's cologne, Bleu de Chanel.

Following the classic Scorsese model, a rebellious young actor, played by French actor Gaspard Ulliel (of 'Hannibal Rising'), refuses to conform to expectations and falls in love with a woman who fuels his work with passion and turmoil.




Scorsese's Bleu de Chanel commercial is the latest example of the fashion world tapping famous names to direct their commercials or "short films," as the companies say nowadays. Gucci recently released a preview of the 3-D ad for their new fragrance Gucci Guilty starring Evan Rachel Wood and directed by Frank Miller of 'Sin City' fame. The full "film" will make its debut on the MTV Video Music Awards on September 12 featuring our Mother Chelsea Handler!!!

Louis Vuitton tapped director Zoé Cassavetes for a short called 'Hide and Seek,' for which she took Vuitton's summer designs on a romp through London. And Sofia Coppola directed an ad for Dior's fragrance Miss Dior Cherie, and is rumored to have recently shot yet another for the luxury fashion house with Natalie Portman, a company spokesmodel.

Interestingly, this isn't Scorsese's first short: He shot Michael Jackson's 'Bad' video in 1987. The full-length clip runs 16 minutes, but was edited down substantially for television.

Considering that he's directed 17 actors to Oscar-nominated performances, a role in a Scorcese film is coveted in Hollywood, and Ulliel feels similarly. "Martin Scorsese is a director whom I've admired for a long time," he says. "I see him as one of the great masters of contemporary filmmaking. Throughout the five days of work, he overflowed with energy and enthusiasm and achieved something that truly stands out from other fragrance commercials."
