Band from Los Angeles called MXMS





It's that time of year where we start to wind down and simultaneously look forward -
One of the artists for 2017 I'm looking forward to is a band from Los Angeles called MXMS....
Fronted by the ever lovely, Ariel Levitan.

They've just started making some waves on those now all important Spotify Playlists (ElectroNOW, indietronic, Young & Free, etc...) with a song called simply "LIKE A SONG" - a collaboration with DJ Tommie Sunshine.
Link to song here

And, today the super cool girls' newsletter, CLOVER, shared a song called RX, written about Ariel and her battles with depression via prescription drugs.
For song and more - go here

MXMS will be releasing their full length debut in the new year. You can also expect to see, at least Ariel, on the runway at some upcoming Fashion shows this February in NYC.

Enjoy!

E! News Exclusive: Irina Shayk Is Pregnant! Victoria’s Secret Model Expecting First Child With Bradley Cooper

http://www.eonline.com/news/812766/irina-shayk-is-pregnant-victoria-s-secret-model-expecting-first-child-with-bradley-cooper

It looks like this Victoria's Secret model just let the cat out of the bag!

Multiple sources tell E! News that Irina Shayk is expecting her first child with Bradley Cooper. According to one insider, the pregnant star is in her second trimester and is "so excited" about becoming a mother for the very first time. Bradley's rep did not respond to requests for comment on the happy news, however, Irina's rep had no comment.

The 30-year-old Russian model strut her stuff at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Paris earlier this evening, where she made her runway debut for the lingerie giant in a range of barely-there bras and see-through panties. The mama-to-be also donned a trench coat with one of her runway looks and a red fringe robe with another one of her sexy ensembles. Backstage, she kept her midriff covered up while in a signature pink Victoria's Secret silk robe while she got runway ready.

Even though Irina was joined by a bevy of angels for the actual show today, she was noticeably absent from the plane ride to the City of Light with the other famous ladies earlier this week.

However, just one day later, Irina was seen leaving a Paris airport en route to her hotel solo.

The Oscar nominee and model were first romantically linked back in May of 2015 when they were spotted strolling around New York City kissing and holding hands.

And while the two have managed to keep most of their personal lives out of the public eye, with neither side speaking about their romance to the press, these two have made no secret of their love for one another.

E! News reported back in July 2015 that the two were going strong and that "everyone that is close to the couple really thinks this is it for the two of them."

Our insider further dished that the two "just work really well together and want to spend every minute they have free together. Both families love seeing them so happy."

The source also shared that starting a family together was already something that they were seriously considering, saying, "They both want kids one day and that's been discussed between them. They have a huge attraction to each other between them and their personalities and their sexual energies.

"You see them in a room and you immediately are in love with them as a couple."

Congratulations to both Irina and Bradley on their exciting baby news!

DADDY DON'T GO ---- Premiering on Vimeo this Father's Day, June 19th



   
Daddy Don't Go from Pureland Pictures on Vimeo.

DADDY DON'T GO
A Film by Emily Abt

Executive Produced by Omar Epps (Resurrection) & Malik Yoba (Empire)


DADDY DON'T GO follows the lives of four young fathers - Alex, Nelson, Roy and Omar - as they struggle to navigate parenthood.  For disadvantaged men, parenting is a daily decision.  Filmed over the course of two years by acclaimed filmmaker Emily Abt, DADDY DON'T GO illuminates the various socioeconomic pressures low-income fathers face and provides compelling portraits of men who persevere.  Epic in scale but intimate in focus, the film shows viewers how men can still be present fathers despite having limited means and facing certain obstacles.  By allowing the viewer extraordinary access into the daily lives of its subjects, DADDY DON'T GO removes the negative lens through which underprivileged fathers are currently viewed and offer audiences a new image of the American family.  

Filmmaker Emily Abt was one of Variety Magazine's "Top 10 Directors to Watch," and has produced and directed documentaries for PBS, OWN, MTV, Showtime and the Sundance Channel.  Abt earned her MFA from Columbia University, receiving a Fulbright fellowship for her thesis film.  Her documentary features include TAKE IT FROM ME (2001 POV) and ALL OF US (Showtime's 2008 World AIDS Day film).  Abt's first narrative feature, TOE TO TOE, premiered at Sundance 2009 and was released in 2010 by Strand Releasing.  AUDREY'S RUN, Abt's most recent narrative feature which she wrote and will direct, is currently in development with Paula Patton (Duncan Jones' WARCRAFT), Mike Epps (Lee Daniels' RICHARD PRIOR: IS IT SOMETHING I SAID?) and Pablo Schreiber (ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK) starring.  Abt's latest documentary DADDY DON'T GO will have its world premiere at the 2015 DOC NYC.

In New York City more than half of African-American children and over 40 percent of Latino children are growing up without fathers.

Fatherlessness is one of the most urgent social issues currently facing American families and is linked to alarming rates of child poverty and incarceration.

Fatherless children are more than twice as likely to drop out of high school and nine times more likely to break the law than their peers raised in two-parent homes.
