From Bond girls to plutonium rods, Taryn Simon has photographed all things 007 to scrutinise how the blockbuster franchise taps into our fears and fantasies
As any 007 obsessive will tell you, before there was James Bond, secret agent, there was James Bond, ornithologist. When keen bird-watcher Ian Fleming, who lived on a colonial-style estate in Jamaica, was trawling around for a suitable name – "brief, unromantic, Anglo-Saxon, and yet very masculine" – for his fictional hero, he settled on the author of one of his favourite non-fiction works, Birds of the West Indies. Published in 1936 by the other James Bond, it detailed the 400-plus bird species on the islands and soon became a classic work of reference.
Sixty years after the first appearance of Fleming's James Bond, photographer Taryn Simon has created a visual taxonomy of all things 007 – Bond girls, gadgets, cars, weapons – but taken Birds of the West Indies, by the other James Bond, »

Johnny Weir Says Gay Protestors Are “Idiots.” “Referring to the new anti-gay law in Russia, which forbids virtually all public mention of homosexuality as a threat to children, the athlete flippantly characterized it as ‘no anal sex in front of libraries.’”
Johnny tries to explain.

London, Sep 19: Grace Jones, who once vowed she'd never write a memoir, has changed her mind and is all set to tell her life story.
The 65-year-old singer has signed an agreement with Gallery Books to write a book scheduled to come out next year, the BBC reported.
The Jamaican-born model, actress and singer revealed that decided to pen down the memoire because if she didn't do it, someone else would do.
According to Gallery Books, the stories the singer planned to share include rooming with Jerry Hall during her model days, collaborating with Andy Warhol and acting with Arnold Schwarzenegger in Conan the Barbarian.
The memoire is also believed to have stories from her time filming James Bond film A View. »

Music can make a scene come alive. In film (or television) a great soundtrack is capable of amplifying the emotions of the scene, thrilling us with tense action scenes, beautiful romantic moments, terrifying horror sequences or momentous deaths. Not convinced? Listen to Howard Shore’s sweeping epic that was the soundtrack to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The upbeat, heroic fellowship theme as they escape Moria in The Fellowship Of The Ring. The beauty that is the Evenstar from The Two Towers. The frenzied strings that conjure up the dread of Shelob and the majestic choir and thundering orchestral accompaniment to The Battle Of The Pelennor Fields in The Return Of The King. It sweeps you up into the heart of these films.
Its often said that sometimes a trailer is much better than the film itself. It builds up to something thrilling and when we watch the full article, »

Rylan Clark wants Mariah Carey to enter the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house and ''have a breakdown''. The 'Big Brother's Bit on the Side' host thinks it would be great to see how stars including the 43-year-old singer, supermodel Naomi Campbell and Hollywood actress Grace Jones get on in the house without their cosmetics and expensive clothing. He joked: ''Naomi Campbell, Mariah Carey, Grace Jones ... all the divas! Take away their make-up and clothes and watch them have a breakdown. ''Or have people who have f**ked each other's husbands, that kind of thing. Can you imagine?!'' The 24-year-old star won 'Celebrity »
It's hard to pinpoint exactly what has brought Lady Bunny the most fame.
The legendary drag queen, who created the non-defunct annual New York City drag festival Wigstock in the mid-80s, has been performing, DJing, releasing music and appearing in films and on TV shows like "RuPaul's Drag Race" and "RuPaul's Drag U" for nearly three decades.
Known for hilarious -- and filthy -- parody covers of tracks by pop stars like Katy Perry, Bunny released an uncharacteristically straight forward dance single, "Take Me Up High" (see the video above) in July and the track has already climbed to number 29 on the Billboard Dance Chart.
We caught up with Bunny to chat about her new song, her connection to the transgender community, how her life changed after 9/11 and more.

Los Angeles, July 11: Singer-songwriter Nicki Minaj, who describes musicians Cyndi Lauper, Grace Jones and supermodel Naomi Campbell are her fashion icons, suggests people can layer eyelashes to enhance their looks.
"Cyndi Lauper, Grace Jones and Naomi Campbell are my fashion icons. I also really admire Jada Pinkett Smith; she's talented, smart and down-to-earth, plus she manages to juggle family and work, I think that's pretty commendable," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Minaj, 30, as saying.
The "Pound the Alarm" hitmaker, who keeps changing her hairstyle and has impressive collection of wigs, said that her hair takes the longest. »

Today marks day one of the 2013 Wimbledon Tennis Championships and stars are stepping out in London to celebrate the event. At the 2013 Wta Pre-Wimbledon Party—held in Kensington at the Roof Gardens—tennis pros Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova (who recently made headlines over a tiff) along with off-court stars, including Jesse Metcalfe and girlfriend Cara Santana, took to the red carpet to launch the Wimbledon festivities. Downton Abbey actresses (and onscreen sisters) Michelle Dockery and Laura Carmichael hung out at the Evian Live Young VIP suite, where legendary supermodels Naomi Campbell and Grace Jones were also spotted. Meanwhile, soon-to-be-aunt Pippa Middleton (alongside her »
Yeezus marks another twist in Kanye West's sound, away from the hip-hop/prog-rock fusion of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and the chipmunk soul of his early years toward electronic and lyrical brutalism. With typical hyperbole, West recently called himself "a Black New Wave artist," but it's hard to connect Yeezus to other musicians — Dirty Mind–era Prince, Grace Jones, Fishbone, Nona Hendryx, A.R. Kane, etc. — who could be said to fit that label. So what does it sound like? The album is anarchic and raw, stripped of sonic excess and yet also packed full of different musical allusions. Visceral hip-hop, damaged dance-music grooves, splashes of Jamaican dancehall, an industrial sense of menace — it's not exactly summer fun, but it is fascinating. If you find yourself communing with Kanye’s current state of mind, here are 30 albums for further exploration.1. Nina Simone, Pastel Blues (Philips, 1965)Nina Simone’s strange, »

I’ll admit, I’m a little late to the James Bond party. But I’m sure if I had been writing for WhatCulture back in November 2012 I would have jumped in with an article on the most inventive villains, the best one liners or the most shocking moments in the Bond franchise (Its Tracy’s death at the end of Her Majesty’s Secret Service by the way).
Eight months on, Bond fever is still here. The franchise was reborn with style with Casino Royale in 2006. But with the success of last year’s Skyfall, Bond mania exploded and I’m still reading articles over who is going to be the next Bond girl or the merry go round of directors (current plans suggest Sam Mendes Will be back to direct Bond 24).
So with that in mind, I thought I’d jump in with my thoughts on an »

Mother Monster has returned! Lady Gaga tweeted an awesome photo of herself after a lengthy hiatus from the social media site. The "Bad Romance" singer posted the pic on her Little Monsters community website for all her fans to see. Gaga poses in the photo with none other than singing legend Grace Jones and milliner Philip Treacy. What a fabulous combination! Looking as glamorous as always, Gaga appears draped in silk fabric and an adorned headpiece while her two friends pose casually next to her. We're happy to see Gaga back in action and have to wonder, is there a collaboration between her and Jones on her upcoming album Artpop? We sure hope so! »
Legendary producer and guitarist Nile Rodgers is experiencing a grand career renaissance, thanks to his work with Daft Punk. Rodgers plays guitar on multiple tracks on "Random Access Memories" and appears in the video for "Get Lucky" alongside the French electronic duo and Pharrell Williams.
But just like Daft Punk hoped to bring back a touch of the past with their new record (which was almost completely analog), Rogers says he might have a surprise up his sleeve. In an interview with OfficialCharts.com, Rodgers says he's happened upon some previously unreleased material he and his Chic bandmates recorded for his solo album.
Rodgers -- who says he's now working with David Guetta and Avicii -- gushed about the archival material:
"The absolute coolest thing is that I finally retrieved some music that I thought was lost, when I was getting my first solo record deal. Obviously, I had a »

Robin Wright plays “herself” in “The Congress,” a trippy cautionary tale about where society is headed, assuming movie stars license their essence to studios and audiences abandon cinema in favor of chemical cocktails that allow them to experience life as their celebrity of choice. Conceptually speaking, such a satire could only work as animation, but even then, it doesn’t quite come together — though fans of last year’s “Holy Motors” may appreciate a surreal double bill with this live-toon hybrid, ideal for midnight crowds and psychedelic enthusiasts. Meanwhile, admirers of director Ari Folman’s “Waltz With Bashir” should seriously adjust their expectations.
Ironically, Folman limits his audience by abandoning the Israeli-specific context of his earlier work in favor of a more universal cultural critique, returning (somewhat) to the world of live-action here by opening with what could be an hourlong episode of “The Twilight Zone.” The remainder of the »

So You Think You Can Dance is back, and I’m telling you it’s an emotional time of year for me. I’m just getting over the glittery abandoned prom that is American Idol, coping with its (always) shockingly great finale, and now I’m bracing myself as another exhibition of talent and ridiculous camera-hogging begins. Sytycd is also a sign that summer’s here, and the shift from Idol‘s grueling crooner pageant to Sytycd‘s sweaty, sensual stylings feels like a seasonal touchstone. Dancewear is the international symbol for the delicious languor of summer. Sorry to go Vivaldi on everyone, but I’m just taking it all in.
Last night’s tenth season premiere treated us to a zany variety of performers, but only five auditioners (so far) are worth the valuable currency of my poetic description. Here are my five faves.

The New Yorker Stefani Joanna Angelina Germanotta known commonly to the world as Lady Gaga rose to fame (incidentally after which she named her debut album) in 2008 as an artist, a pop and fashion icon and an equal rights activist for the gay/lesbian/transgender community.
She is often described as kooky and odd because of the way she chooses to express herself through fashion. But it’s this unique, non-conformist style which has rocketed her into contemporary popular culture relevance. She not only demands people’s attention and curiosity, she has created an entire following and fan base called ‘Little Monsters’ who collectively embrace being outcast from mainstream society and labelled weirdos.
Lady Gaga sees her audience as a collection of mini versions of her socially and romantically »

Anyone who knows me knows that I have some seriously mad love for the 1986 horror comedy cult classic Vamp, directed by Richard Wenk and starring Chris Makepeace, Robert Rusler, Gedde Watanabe, Sandy Baron, Grace Jones and the delightful Dedee Pfeiffer.
While I'm still unsure of just how I talked my mom into renting Vamp for me in the first place, I can distinctly remember every single moment of the very first time I took this often overlooked gem home from the video store. While there had been several vampire movies in that era of genre filmmaking that I really loved as a kid, I always felt like Vamp was something totally different and weird- and I liked that.
For those of you who've never seen Vamp (last time I checked, it was on Netflix Instant), the movie follows two college kids named Keith (Makepeace) and Aj (Rusler), who have to »
