“It’s been a power-player year.”

And how about being named the tenth-most-powerful man in hip-hop by The Source?

TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D Promotion & YoDonBleekRaps!

Picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace.  The townspeople long suspected the Sawyer family,  owners of a local barbeque pit, were somehow responsible.  Their suspicions were finally confirmed one hot summer day when a young woman escaped the Sawyer house following the brutal murders of her four friends.  Word around the small town quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family – or so they thought.

Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had.  After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars…

Fashion Designer Jeremy Scott Speaks On Being Inspired By The Music Industry & His Friendship With Kanye West

American fashion designer Jeremy Scott is the man behind the Adidas wing sneakers. Music artists including Lil Wayne, Ciara, Kanye West, Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry have all been seen wearing designs and pieces from his collection. Jeremy Scott has been labeled “the King of bright color”. In a recent interview with Jay-Z’s Life & Time, he talked about being inspired by the music industry, being misunderstood, wanting to become a creative director for a huge fashion house, his friendship with Kanye West and career highlight. Below are some excerpts:

You obviously receive a lot of love from the music world. How does music inspire your collections?

 I do get a lot of love from musicians and I feel blessed about that as many of the people that have been so supportive are also artists that I respect, admire and whose music and art influence me and the culture at large that we live in. It’s a very symbiotic relationship. When I’m working on costumes for Madonna or say Nicki Minaj or Rihanna, I will play their music to evoke their energy around me and like a muse should, their music helps me create and feel their essence. But then with someone like Katy Perry who I know so well and have such a bond with, I don’t even need to play her music because we are so in-sync that it’s second nature to create for her. The artists I dress are muses and friends and ultimately I want to inspire and please them with my designs. I’m not always 100 percent with my visions and daydreams for them, but I feel like I’m always hitting close to target.

Many people say that you need to have a certain confidence to rock a Jeremy Scott design? Would you agree?
I just think that if you wear it then you love it. For me it’s so effortless. I don’t think much about it and that’s the same for most of my friends, so it’s hard for me to imagine that it’s challenging for some people. Too many people live worrying what others will think of them and in effect don’t live. It’s my job to push boundaries, I believe that goes with out saying. And I take my job very seriously.

Do you ever feel your work is misunderstood?
Yes it has been sometimes. It’s fine as it’s just another view of it and art is open to interpretation. I would hate to box in the viewer and to not let them bring their own feelings, emotions, memories and dreams to the surface when they see my work. But then it has also happened in negative ways, bringing links to subjects I deplore.

Karl Lagerfeld paid you the ultimate compliment by saying you would be the most suitable successor for Chanel. Is being a creative director for a huge fashion house the ultimate goal?
Well yes that is a great compliment coming from the master himself. Like any red- blooded fashion fan, I love Chanel and that would be a dream job but I hope we have many more years of Karl because I adore him.

You and Kanye West seem to share a great friendship… When will we finally see you guys working together creatively?
Ah, yes. He’s a real friend, that Kanye. He is so genuine and so passionate and so creative. We have eight hour phone calls talking about everything in the world. When he is in town, he comes to my house as we live down the road from each other and he plays me music and we brainstorm about all kinds of things. We have of course spoken about working together. When the time is right.

Do you have a career highlight ?
I always cherish my cover of i-D Magazine with Devon as she has been my muse since she was 13 and i-D was the magazine who’s pages I dreamt about. They represented another world of fashion, music and culture, so to get the cover was a childhood dream come true.
