Finally, the video release of Supernova. The project the two kept so secretive actually looks great. So what Kanye needs or chooses to use auto-tune, its a great song either way. This is a classic music video to portray a song like this. The single will be available July 20th, the first single of the forthcoming album 'Straight No Chaser' set to release October 5th.

But, (Flash! Flash!) saturday Evan was down at the Apollo in Harlem NY. Here is respect to the King of Pop through one artist's eyes.

Neff Michael Jackson Tribute Tee

Neff has produced a Michael Jackson Tee titled “Long Live the King” in two colorways. Unlike some of the tackier R.I.P. MJ shirts we’ve seen, this one does some justice to the King of Pop’s legendary career.

Sounds Like PAPER Concert - Chester French x Kid Cudi



Great high energy concert. After Rain delays it kicked off with performances from Chester French who happened to bring along Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes to perform Life in NY (Video Above). Chester French performed songs such as Jimmy Choos, Bebee Buell, Neal and Cmon, She Loves everybody. A smooth and quick transition led to Kid Cudi's performance around 8:45 p.m. Performing Man on the Moon, Down and out, Day and Nite, Make her say, and Dat New New. Great Concert and performances to top it off it was free. Glad to meet up with D.A. lead singer of Chester French, and Drummer Manny . More photos to come of the performance. Check back soon.

Johnny Depp is The Mad Hatter

Johnny Depp playing the Madd Hatter seems perfect. Depp will be working along side Helena Bonham Carter for the forth time under Tim Burton. Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have already worked together on movies such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Corpse Bride (2005), Sleepy Hollow (1999), Ed Wood (1994) and Edward Scissorhands (1990). Johnny Depp is also rumored to play in Dark Shadows directed by Tim Burton and scheduled for 2010. A relative unknown Mia Wasikowska who is only 19 years of age, from Australia, will be playing Alice. Seventeen-year-old Alice struggles to fit into Victorian society and is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of people at a garden party. She flees the party and spots the White Rabbit (Michael Sheen) and follows him down a hole and into Wonderland. While film fans will have to wait until March 2010 to see the film it's safe to say in my Jack Nicholson voice "heres Johnnnyyyyyy."

Van Halen Sues Nike ? You Be The Judge

Via: Highsnobiety
“ELVH alleges that the design of certain Nike Dunk Low styles infringe on the copyright the company holds for the red-white-and-black-striped pattern Van Halen made famous on his “Frankenstein” guitar — and for which the musician has held the copyright since 2001.

Citing “irreparable harm and damage,” ELVH is asking for the impoundment and destruction of all the shoes in question, as well as all profits from the sale of the shoes and damages.

In a statement provided to FN by a brand spokesperson, Nike said it was aware of the lawsuit but did not believe it to have merit. “Based on the information provided to us, we have not infringed on any rights held by Mr. Van Halen,” it said. “Nike’s Dunk shoe design is not substantially similar to any of the Van Halen designs, and Nike has not referenced the ‘Van Halen’ name or image as part of any marketing campaign or promotional material associated with the shoe.”
