"Women In Music Pt. III" Proves Haim Are Pop's New Blueprint

On their third album, the sister trio is bolder and better than ever before.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a current indie rock star that has embodied a personal brand as perfectly curated as Haim.

The trio, composed of sisters Danielle, Alana, and Este Haim, broke out in 2013 with Days Are Gone, a soft-rock debut brimming with Los Angeles cool that spread like wildfire. In the years since, Haim's music follows the other essential tenets of being a Haim: leather blazers, great choreography, middle-parted hair, and an obsession with '70s icons from Joni Mitchel to Diana Ross. There's a good reason Vogue once published a how-to on emulating the sisters' collective style.

Kanye West's Presidential Run Is Great News for Donald Trump

"Better late than never" may not apply in this case...

On Saturday, in a strange celebration of Independence Day, rapper, producer, and sneaker mogul Kanye West announced his intention to run for president in 2020.

As in, this year. Right now.

The announcement quickly prompeted messages of support from Kanye's wife, prison reform advocate Kim Kardashian West, as well as from billionaire weirdo/Grimes baby daddy Elon Musk.

Of course, this news comes well past the filing deadline for independent candidates in several major states—which means that unless a political party randomly decides to nominate him, Kanye's name won't appear on those ballots. As deadlines in other states approach—with little apparent effort to gather the petition signatures required—Kanye is officially joining the long, proud history of vanity presidential campaigns. Unfortunately, that's a lot more dangerous than it sounds.
