Catey Shaw’s “Brooklyn Girls” Proves Even Music About Brooklyn is Being Gentrified

Video still via Vevo “Brooklyn girls, when they walk in they rule the world.” That’s the hooky lyric of Catey Shaw’s new song about everyone’s favorite cool borough. The song, which sounds like Katy Perry, Maroon 5, and Carrie Underwood thrown into a blender (plus something a little whinier, maybe Christina Aguilera?) is accompanied by a video highlighting “Brooklyn [...]

Art Star Jeff Koons New H&M Bag Lands On Fifth Avenue

Jeff Koons and Julio Santo Domingo When I first heard Jeff Koons was collaborating with retailer HM I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Maybe some mylar-effect puffer jackets?
