Trash as a word can define many things. Items you’d throw out, trash. An adjective that describes a person or things that are no longer of use to you, trash.
Balenciaga’s $2,000 trash bag, total trash.
Balenciaga creative director, Demna, told Women’s Wear Daily: “I couldn’t miss an opportunity to make the most expensive trash bag in the world, because who doesn’t love a fashion scandal?"
That’s right, in a world of soaring inflation and reckless spending, Balenciaga has found a fresh way for us to feel fussy in our Balenciussies. It’s proof you can throw a big brand name on anything and call it fashion.
Back in March, we caught a glimpse of this bad boy during Paris Fashion Week, when it was gifted to Balenciaga’s muse: Kim Kardashian. I know there are a lot of jokes to be made here, so I’ll give you permission to fill in the blanks.
I struggle to find a way to justify this purchase. If you genuinely buy this and use it to toss out your trash, I judge you. There’s only one positive: Santa can now slide down your chimney sporting a designer sack.
Are they running out of ideas? Should the greater culture been clued in to the meaning of the term “camp?” I’m all for taking risks in the fashion world, but let’s keep household items out of it. What’s next, bubble wrap skirts? (Don’t get any ideas, Balenciaga…)
Allow me to introduce the first Balenciaga bag knockoff: the Glad ForceFlex trash bag. Pick up a pack of 90 for only $20 at your local drugstore. The best thing about these bags is they can hold up to 80 lbs of your favorite purse items!
Has Balenciaga absolutely lost it? I don’t want to see a single person walking around with this glorified trash bag - unless they were gifted one. Spend your money on what you want, but don’t let luxury fashion brands brainwash you into thinking this is trendy.
Singer/songwriter & DJ, Sofi’s a musical triple threat, a triple treat, a triple talent. Her dynamic songs touch on the anxieties of a couple blending their lives and all the humorous and bittersweet journeys we take. Her tunes and vocals are refreshing and effervescent.
"I'm fascinated by the cause and effects of fame.” Sofi said about her latest single Famous. “I was walking down the street one day and thought to myself, what would happen if I became famous? Would people be nicer? Would they like me more? It’s funny because everyone wants to be famous … I knew then it was super relatable and the lyrics and melody just immediately came to me. I’m so excited to finally share this song with everyone.”
You can check out the new single below:
Unlike many pop singers, Vonn writes all of her own material. She’s an audacious talent, someone the music industry hasn’t seen in a long time. A vibrant storyteller, her depth of feeling and love of her craft is evident in every track.
Vonn’s a mentee of famed music executive Charlie Walk - who helped launch the careers of Lorde, Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, among many others. Her powerhouse voice flawlessly conveys her lyrics, which are at once introspective yet universal.
Famous follows on the success of Sofi’s recently released single Songs as well as the stand-alone singles what you started, Ghost, and Best I Can. Her debut EP That Was A Close Call released to much acclaim at the end of 2021.
Vonn is known for her dichotomy of fusing meaningful lyrics with boppy, whimsical beats. A super mixture of pop and electronic flair that inspires you to get up and dance. Fans and those listeners new to Vonn can appreciate her raw approach to music. Famous by Sofi Vonn is no exception.
We’re definitely looking forward to hearing more of Vonn’s original sound … and we don’t have to wait very long.
Famous is Sofi’s second single to release in the build up to her sophomore EP set to drop later this year.
After delivering Lemonade in 2016 - what many believed was Beyoncé's most culturally relevant album in her outstanding body of work - and surviving the constricting world of covid lockdown, Queen Bey has turned to the liberation of the dancefloor. Bey’s inviting the world to shed our stress and sweat it off to her blockbuster seventh studio album, Renaissance.
The 16-track album presents the pop superstar in a way we’ve never seen before: unapologetic and unafraid to shatter her pristine image with songs that flaunt her sexuality, her Blackness, and celebrate the uniqueness of her huge queer fanbase!
If you haven’t taken to the dancefloor while these funky, disco-tinged dance tracks are playing, all I can say is, what are you waiting for?
While you revel in this hypnotizing gift of an album, find out which track aligns with your star sign and get ready to dance the summer away!
Someone call the fire department! Bold, fiery, and charming. Like this Drake-penned track, you’re ready to flaunt what your momma gave you and prove you are the MVP!
“Only a real one can tame me, only the radio can play me!”
Beyoncé - HEATED (Official Lyric Video) youtu.be
Saturated in sensuality - and a bit of materialism. This song - like the bull of the zodiac - is clearly ruled by Venus and not afraid to celebrate their voluptuous figure or ask for the finer things in life!
“This that thick, that’s that real $h!t. That's that jelly, baby, champagne and cherry, baby.”
Beyoncé - THIQUE (Official Lyric Video) youtu.be
Gemini♊️: Cuff It
A playful, disco-tinged song, that - like most Geminis - is witty, lighthearted, and ready to inspire a night of zany, crazy but fun memories that’ll light up the rest of your summer.
“Unapologetic when we fuck up the night, fuck up the night!”
Beyoncé - CUFF IT (Official Lyric Video) youtu.be
Cancer♋️: Chuch Girl
Often seen as a softer, more innocent sign. Like track 7, Cancers are finally coming out of their shells and growing into their sexuality without judgment or shame.
“I'm gonna love on me, Nobody can judge me but me (Ooh). I was born free (Ooh, ooh)”
Beyoncé - CUFF IT (Official Lyric Video) youtu.be
Leo♌️: I’m That Girl
Ruled by the sun, Leos are undoubtedly the leader of the zodiac, and there’s just not another song that sums up kings and queens of the jungle than the opening track of Renaissance!
“It’s not my man, it’s not my stance, I’m that girl (I’m that girl)!"
Beyoncé - I'M THAT GIRL (Official Lyric Video) youtu.be
Virgo♍️: Plastic Off The Sofa
One of the only slow-tempo songs featured on the album, POTS finds the singer (a Virgo) serenading her lover about how she adores his flaws and will take on the world with him.
“Boy, I love that you can't help but be yourself around me”
Beyoncé - PLASTIC OFF THE SOFA (Official Lyric Video) youtu.be
If ‘Can we get a vibe check’ was a song, it would be Beyonce’s Energy. And if there’s anything every Libra is all about, it’s a good time and good vibes.
“We was just chillin', mindin' our business Poppin' our pain and champagne through the ceilin'!"
Beyoncé - ENERGY (Official Lyric Video) youtu.be
Scorpio♏️: America Has A Problem
Dark and - of course - oozing with sexuality, aptly describes this song and all of those Scorpios out there. Whatever your deal is when it comes to Scorpios, get ready to be mesmerized.
“I'm supplying my man, I'm in demand soon as I land!”
Beyoncé - AMERICA HAS A PROBLEM (Official Lyric Video) youtu.be
Get ready to sweat, this track will have you moving and grooving. Just like the fiery centaur, don’t expect this song to settle into one mere groove, it’s got places to go, people to see!
“Four, three, too fucking busy. That's my technique.”
Beyoncé - PURE/HONEY (Official Lyric Video) youtu.be
Capricorns are all about their next business move and Beyonce is ready to push everything and anything out of her way on this infectious Tems & Grace Jones-assisted track.
“Don't make it turn into trouble 'Cause we comin' straight out the jungle!”
Beyoncé - MOVE (Official Lyric Video) youtu.be
Aquarius♒️: Break My Soul
The sister sign to Leo (or opposite), Aquarius is the rebellious, revolutionary. And why they’re paired with this contagious lead single calling for everyone to release the stress!
“I'm lookin' for motivation! I'm lookin' for a new foundation, yeah. And I'm on that new vibration, I'm buildin' my own foundation, yeah!”
Beyoncé - BREAK MY SOUL (Official Lyric Video) youtu.be
Pisces♓️: Alien Superstar
U-N-I-Q-U-E - there’s no better word that describes the final sign of the zodiac. An anthem for anyone who’s ever been called weird or different! Raise your freak flag high and celebrate YOU!
“(Unique)That's what you are…Category: sexy bitch, I'm the bar. Alien superstar!”
Beyoncé - ALIEN SUPERSTAR (Official Lyric Video) youtu.be
