DL3_1024x1024.jpg
David Lynch continues to foray into the fashion world by collaborating with Live The Process on some pretty, limited edition, floral yoga gear to put on your sitbones and send intention in.

David Lynch Corset Bra
$105.00
The ballet-inspired Corset Bra provides generous coverage with princess seam details and spaghetti straps.
This style is part of the David Lynch Collection, an exclusive collaboration between The David Lynch Foundation and Live The Process.

I actually don’t mind the outfit — it could double as a cute club look! And big-ups to David‘s Foundation for donating a bunch of the proceeds to support victims of abuse! Properly keeping in the true spirit of yoga!

!! OMG, when little turds do GOOD things: Justin Bieber “quietly donates” $545K to an AIDS research at Cannes !!

Screen-Shot-2014-05-27-at-10.14.19-AM-360x359.png
You have to give credit where credit is due, and obviously Justin Bieber has a LOT of money — but this is a good start for him: The popstar just donated $545,000 at the amfAR gala this week in Cannes where:

He “quietly and without fanfare” matched a generous donation of $545,000. The annual event is hosted by one of the most internationally recognized and well-respected AIDS-related organizations in the world raising money for AIDS research — each year, the formal amfAR gala raises millions of dollars through wealthy donors and celebrity endorsements like this.

$WAG! Hopefully this is the start of more charitable donations from him. He’d do well to spend less time on terrible tattoos, grooming bad teenstaches and sizzurp and more time on doing good!

!! OMG, shake a fist: ANNIE debuts Putin protest video with track “RUSSIAN KISS” !!

6a00d8341c730253ef01a3fcb72639970b-800wi.jpg
Norwegian pop singer Annie may sometimes present herself like a tiny mouse with a soft delivery, but her new track and video protesting Vladimir Putin‘s anti-gay laws in Russia — are anything but placid!
Annie and producer Richard X took a cue from producer Lil’ Louis‘ classic house track “French Kiss” on this, then rinsed her protest in ACID, and shot a video for it all featuring a big homo kiss-up! A little about the video from Annie’s Official Site:

The Winter Olympics are not just skating styles, waxing techniques and jump lengths. The Winter Olympics are also deep emotions: interpersonal, national, and global. Millions of TV-viewers are witness to these emotions. Usually, they find their expression in embraces and kisses. You can observe this at the finishing area and during the medal ceremony — teammates embracing each other, winners kissing their partners.
This may be difficult when the Olympic Games take place in Sochi in February. As we know, Vladimir Putin has introduced laws prohibiting gays and lesbians to show their love in public in Russia. Furthermore, it is prohibited to talk positively about homosexuality in public. This is the reason why an increasing number of leaders worldwide have decided to boycott this year’s Olympics. In Norway, the political leadership has rejected calls to remain at home. As a great power in winter sports Norway is in a unique position to flex its muscles in a situation like this. This could have been an occasion for Norway to stand up for the fundamental right to express your feelings towards the one you love.
In Norway, many gays and lesbians — and not only gays and lesbians — have reacted against this. One of them is one of Norway’s best-known elite artists: The New York-based artist Bjarne Melgaard (http://stabfrenzy.com/). Therefore, at the beginning of December, together with the Norwegian songwriter and performer Annie (http://anniemelody.com/), he took the initiative to Russian Kiss: a short movie about the right to kiss one’s beloved — regardless of sexual orientation — wherever one likes.

Check out the video below, (which also happens to feature Toronto photographer Petra Collins, the woman behind American Apparel’s controversial “Period Power” t-shirt). RUSSIAN KISS is available for purchase today, and a portion of the iTune proceeds go to gay rights advocacy non-profit AllOut.org!
