Monday was officially MDNA Monday all over the world to debut her 12th studio album. Yes, she's back. And looking smashing! Her latest video "Girl Gone Wild" is very nostalgic of early 90s aesthetics and ethics. What's old is new again and in full force for 2012! Here's to 50 years more to the one and only (and a fellow Leo) Queen of Pop!
In an attempt to distract myself from the book prison, I started watching Beverly Hills 90210 all over again, from the very first episode of the very first season. It conjured up fond memories of being a teenager, coming home from school and plopping myself down in front of the TV every evening around 5pm, one eye on my homework and one eye on the screen, eager to find out more about the adventures of the Walsh family. I even made a zine about it back in the days, that's how obsessed I was. Later on, when my best friend and I created "Les Echos de la SPBG (Société Protectrice des Beaux Gosses)" - translates as The Babes Gazette, essentially the ancestor of Babe Time - we proudly put Brandon Walsh as a cover star. When I first started using the internet, circa 1994, I used to spend hours reading spoilers for 90210. The show truly was my teenage companion.
I woke up this morning and thought "I haven't gushed about Swedish Hasbeens for a while" so I feel like I need to fix this - not so coincidentally, yesterday saw the launch of their pop-up store in Selfridges Shoe Galleries. I didn't attend because of a lethal combination of illness, tiredness and mega deadline, but when it comes to clogs, I am most definitely all seeing and all knowing.
