Global Grind - Russell Simmons
GlobalGrind.com is the world according to hip-hop. If you haven’t yet stumbled across it while surfing the Web — well, shame on you. And you’re missing out. GlobalGrind, edited by industry legend Russell Simmons, brings together on one site everything that matters to the hip-hop community. Similar, lesser “aggregation sites” have been tried before — 360hiphop.com,...
Fashionable Type - Serge Leblon Mixes Text &...
Serge Leblon is one of those photographers that takes instantly recognizable pictures. I usually find them beautiful and fresh, but particularly like the inclusion of text in these two. Do I spy a new trend in photography?
You know how much we love Michael Bojkowski’s Linefeed videos!
RYAN MCGINLEY IS STAR OF HIS OWN MAGAZINE
Although MYMAG is definitely one-of-a-kind as far as magazine publishing is concerned, we love coming across other magazines with a similar ethos to ours. Mono.cultur is a Berlin-based interview magazine that focuses on one person each issue. You won’t find pages ripped out of their childhood scrapbooks, but you will get to know these celebrities in ways you haven’t before; imagine...
SELF SERVICE LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE AND BLOG!
It’s always been a mystery to me why such a thoughtfully produced magazine as Self Service doesn’t have a killer blog to match. Now it does! Check out the Self Service website & blog, and find out what their Paris-based parent company Petronio Associates is up to. As far as multi-disciplinary strategic and creative agencies go, they are definitely one of the most hip. Cheers,...
NEW EGOISTE ISSUE COMES OUT, IT'S A GOOD DAY.
There are magazines, and then there are magazines. Egoiste falls into the second category. It’s big, it’s heavy, and you would never ever throw it away. Not in a move, not in a storm, you get the picture. Speaking of pictures, Egoiste is practically the bible of fashion photography; Ellen Von Unwerth shot Keira Knightley for the latest cover, and the editorial has already become a...

Beyonce for Dazed & Confused
This month seems, very firmly, to belong to Beyonce. Riding on the success of “Run the World” and ahead of the launch of the new album “4” the singer covers both W Magazine and Dazed & Confused. After such a long hiatus the two magazines seem a perfect reintroduction to the public eye, not least because the shoots featured in both issues are far superior to the...
MIKE MILLS & BEGINNERS AT FAMILY IN LA!
If you haven’t seen Beginners - the latest Mike Mills film - yet, take yourself to the theater immediately! I wasn’t the biggest fan of his last (and first) film Thumbsucker, so I was more than humbled by how moving Beginners is. Like he did for Thumbsucker, Mills has published a book to accompany the film; if it sounds overly esoteric or cheesy, see the movie and you’ll...
Lady Gaga - Madison Square Garden
Sometimes it takes just one video to completely change your perception of an artist - and when it comes to Lady Gaga I can safely say the video above did it for me. The fanfare and hysteria which surrounds her often makes it easy to forget that her voice trumps those belonging to most other successful artists of her genre. When I saw her emerge from an alien style pod at the Grammys, I was...
DIDDY'S MYMAG IS IN BARNES & NOBLE!
Diddy’s MYMAG is at Barnes & Noble locations all over the country, woo! We’re so grateful for all our amazing contributors: Mick Rock, Luis Barajas, NME, Flaunt, The Ring, Jean-Paul Goude, and more! - Lauren Taylor
NIKE - CHOSEN
Over the years you’ve watched some of the most iconic athletes perform in some of the most iconic ads of this generation. Now Nike are giving fans the opportunity to live like the pros they support. All you need to do is send in a video of you and your crew showing off your skills, for the chance to be ‘Chosen’. The video above is the Nike team showing how it’s done,...
GWYNETH-GURU-PALTROW JOINS TWITTER!
I feel kind of guilty writing this. I mean, once I write it, there’s no turning back, right? Okay, let me just say… GWYNETH PALTROW JOINED TWITTER. I get it, this happened days ago. But I can’t be the only one who’s actually going to my followers list, scrolling to find Gwyneth, and clicking on her Tweet history to see her latest 140-character autobiography. And I...
MYMAG IS NOW SOLD AT OTHER MUSIC IN NYC!

Alicia Keys for W Magazine
In the latest issue of W Magazine Alicia Keys (shot by Mario Sorrenti), takes time to reflect on the ten year anniversary of the record which made her career, Songs in A Minor. Below she talks to W about the creative decisions which led to Songs in A Minor. “I just wanted to be who I was, which was like so many other girls I knew. We grew up in the city, had a hard edge and obstacles to...
