FIVE minutes and 40 seconds.

That’s how long it takes former ONE DIRECTION heart-throb HARRY STYLES to establish himself as the world’s most exciting new music star.

His debut single Sign of the Times is a soaring, epic rock ballad that sounds like a cross between DAVID BOWIE and LANA DEL REY (as weird as that sounds).

It goes against the current trend of non-distinguishable dance tracks — the length alone would make it commercial suicide for any other artist.

Its main instrument is the piano, which Harry has been studiously playing in private for years.

For large portions of the track he sings in falsetto, showing off a quality voice with much more range than we ever saw during his five years in 1D. This song has the potential to become a timeless classic.

Harry co-wrote it with the brilliant, highly regarded Grammy-winning producer JEFF BHASKER, best known for his work with KANYE WEST and JAY Z.

Whether anyone in the industry will take young Harry seriously as the “next Bowie” remains to be seen, but the 23-year-old is certainly putting his best foot forward.

The lyrics are “deeply personal”, sources close to Harry tell me, but they’re also open to any form of interpretation.

Sign of the Times begins with him singing over the piano: “Just stop your crying, it’s a sign of the times. Welcome to the final show, hope you’re wearing your best clothes.”

Could it be about a break-up? Possibly. Or maybe about death? More likely.

The refrain throughout the song is his need to “gotta get away from here”. From what exactly isn’t clear.

We could meet again somewhere, somewhere far away from here,” he sings, poignantly.

Many people think Harry has disappeared up his own backside with an arty promotional campaign designed to distance himself as far as possible from the 1D heritage that has given him this opportunity.

That said, I give him huge credit for releasing the most daring and well-delivered debut single of the decade.

And you won’t get it out of your head once you’ve heard it . . .  - THE SUN

HARRY is eyeing up another big role – godfather to LIAM PAYNE and CHERYL’s baby boy.

He has revealed he has been in touch with his 1D bandmate since Cheryl gave birth to their child last month and says he would love to be involved in the lad’s life.

He said: “I spoke to Liam and he’s loving it. He said it’s going really well and everyone’s great. So I’m very happy for him.”

Asked about becoming godfather, he added: “I think it’s a roll of the dice, there are a lot of people Liam has in mind.

“I’m not going to add any extra pressure. If it came my way I would be honoured.”

Harry also spoke about his mum and stepdad’s reaction to hearing his debut album.

He told DARRYL MORRIS on Manchester radio station Key 103: “I had one piece of feedback from my stepdad, one of the songs on the album has a vocal effect in the background. And it finished and he went, ‘How did you get a duck in the studio?’ ”

On the other hand, Harry’s mum had a slightly different reaction.

He added: “She cried a couple of times which was good, I think that was good.”

For his sake I hope so.

The star-wrangling DJ takes Kanye’s meltdown and Bieber’s moods in his stylish stride at Luca

Is Nick Grimshaw still cool? This is, after all, precisely the reason why he was hired by the BBC in 2012 to host The Radio 1 Breakfast Show, taking over from the old, unfathomably uncool Chris Moyles. He certainly looks pretty cool as he hops from the back of a cab outside our lunch destination, all teeth and sports luxe.

Navy suede bomber, blue tailored trousers, black Vans and dark shades. He’s trendy yet clean, sort of Shoreditch via a bath, if you will; a hipster who’s made some decent wedge. The idea that authenticity (what young people think of as cool nowadays) can be upgraded for Joe Public via a little luxury befits our location, Luca, on St John Street in Clerkenwell. It’s run by the same team who run The Clove Club, a restaurant that brought sophisticated food - rather than just triple-cooked chips with aioli - to Shoreditch several years ago. This is their attempt at a posh Italian.

We begin by talking about Justin Bieber. Grimshaw and I - only school kids call him “Grimmy” - have something in common in that we both adore gossiping about famous people we’ve interviewed. Bieber, Beyoncé, Beckham, he’s done the lot. I tell him my worst interviewee by far was Christina Aguilera during her Stripped period. She was wearing so much fake tan that she left a trail of brown radioactive sludge wherever she perched. At the time, I remember thinking she resembled an enormous melted orange crayon.

“I’ve done Bieber every year since he was 14, so I’ve probably had deeper conversations with him than I’ve had with my own family,” he chuckles. Is he a terrible brat? “He used to be. But then every teenager is a dickhead, aren’t they? This year he came into the studio for a prerecord and he was monosyllabic and disinterested. I stopped the interview and asked him what the problem was. He told me he was hungover. So I got him a pint and a Nando’s. Celebrities are just dogs who need petting. Show them some love and they’ll be humping your leg before lunch.”

Speaking of which, we’ve ordered already: shaved fennel with pear salad and carpaccio of Hereford beef with oyster emulsion to start; for mains we choose pasta entrées: garganelli with pork sausage, tomato and anchovy (for him) and tiny pheasant milanese swimming in a peppery, sepia-coloured broth (for me). We drink lager and pale ale and agree the food is, although refined, broadly unexceptional.

Getting back to the gossip, I want his take on Kanye West - meltdown or precision press strategy? “Kanye might be having a nervous breakdown or he might just be really bored.” He’s bleached his hair, I say. Like with Britney Spears, extreme grooming is always a cultural cipher that indicates a celeb is one sad-face emoji short of self-immolation. “I like Kanye, or I like his music. I asked him once if he got lots of free stuff sent to him and he took it as an insult. ‘Do you think I’m cheap?’ he shouted. 'I drink champagne all day. Do you?’ No thanks, Kanye. It gives me dog breath.”

You can see why stars like Grimshaw. He’s brilliant fun, smart and utterly self-deprecating. “What I do isn’t work - it’s talking to myself in a room really early in the morning.” He doesn’t take talent, or himself, too seriously, thus he’s able to sweetly pop celebrities’ ego bubbles and talk to them like a normal person, something the swarming teams around megastars all too often are unable to do.

“I hate a kiss-ass,” he agrees. “Any celebrity that comes into the studio at 7am in the morning to be grilled by me and tells me how happy they are to be here is lying.” His realness has meant he’s been able to make friends with some of those he’s encountered along the way, Harry Styles, for one. Has he heard from Harry recently? “Sure, we texted this morning. He’s worried I won’t like his new solo record. He recorded it in Jamaica so I am praying it’s some awful white-man reggae.”

Cool? Yes, Nick Grimshaw will always be cooler than his employers -always has been, always will be. That’s why he didn’t fit in with Simon Cowell on The X Factor: “Everyone told me not to do it as it was so naff. Simon had weird energy: very Machiavellian.” So what happens when he eventually leaves The Radio 1 Breakfast Show? Where do DJs go to die? The pub? “I’m doing an internship,” he confesses proudly. “With Es Devlin, who designs huge stage sets for Adele and Beyoncé. I’ve been using a glue gun! I’ve always liked three things: music, nice shoes and good lighting. I’ve ticked two of those boxes, so why not the last?

"I’ve reached a point in my life where I know all that celebrity stuff is, ultimately, nonsense. What I need to think about is this: am I happy, am I healthy and am I being nice to my family? I guess it’s about being present.” Which is the least cool, but most honest thing Nick Grimshaw says all afternoon. GQ

i-do-as-i-want  asked:

I like doomfist as a villain (I also see the problem with him being the bad guy. The same way i see how they used stereotypical dj black boy to be a hero.) But i think I would have a bigger problem if he was depicted as he is now. Like if he was just some black ignorant dude, saggyin his pants and speaking kanye west lyrics. I would have had to send jeff a fucking email like- brah one fucking job tho? Like doomfist gives off villain from black panther vibes. But i also wanted a black!fem!healer

(I’m gonna do this as an open response for now, also my message are always open if you want a private response)

I’m not sure if you read my letter to Jeff Kaplan and then his response (if not, I link you to it), but I expressed my concerns about there not being enough black women (in general) in video games and he seemed receptive to it. I also made it clear that Orisa is NOT a black HUMAN woman so she doesn’t count. I think we’ll get a black female playable character down the line but as usual, us black women are always farther down the checklist (I aim to change that when I get into the game industry).

As for Doomfist he definitely doesn’t give off the scary black mindless thug that we usually get in media and not too much of an African drug lord (covered in conflict diamonds) either. I showed a picture to my mom (whose in the tv industry) and by looking at his clothing (aka the cloth belt and the billowy pants) she thought he could be a monk. Which definitely fits since he’s a martial artist and lots of people have been noticing that his quotes are very similar to Zenyatta’s. In my mind, Doomfist is very much a philosopher, warrior, and leader in the same vein of Sun Tzu, Shaka Zulu, and Napolean.

And it’s not like Black monks are uncommon:

We’re just not used to seeing them. Unfortunately, because a majority of the world’s media is influenced by white supremacy, seeing pictures like those above and characters like Doomfist challenge the idea that Black people cannot be philosophical or disciplined, and if they are a villain, their morals cannot be ambiguous or similar to the heroes or intelligent. 

Also, Doomfist is a pretty TOP TIER villain, we’ve known about Doomfist since the FIRST trailer of overwatch. And the hype of Doomfist was created by the COMMUNITY, not Blizzard, unlike Sombra. So I think the idea what Blizzard was thinking of when they made Doomfist is summed up in the quote: “ A Hero is only as great as his villain…”  And if that’s the case, the heroes need to step their f**king game up.

Jay-Z new album 4:44: Snoop Dogg downloaded a bootleg because he doesn't have Tidal

The release strategy for Jay-Z’s new album, 4:44, was so confusing that even Snoop Dogg - who could presumably get Hov to hook him up with one phone call - turned to piracy.

“I wanna shoot a shout out to Jay-Z, just dropped another motherfuckin’ hot album, 4:44,” he said.

“But you know what, I don’t got Tidal so my nigga had to bootleg it to me. I’m on iTunes and shit coz I don’t understand it y'all gotta explain it to me. I went to iTunes looking for his album and I couldn’t find it. But my homie sent it to me you understand me.”

Released on Friday, 4:44 is only available to Tidal customers who subscribed before 26 June, unless they’re on the Sprint network.

Snoop went on to big up Jay, and perhaps reference the recent backlash against his Young Thug-targeting music video.

“But shout out to Jay Z my nigga, he did it again,” he said, “See I ain’t no hater, I love the game - for what it’s worth - the young niggas and the old niggas.

"Practice that, practice showing love, practise supporting other motherfuckers other than yourself.”

Jay’s new album was a personal one, referencing his infidelities, his mother’s sexuality and taking shots at his friend Kanye West.
