editor’s letter

The Hollywood death has always had a grim, global allure, the death that feels so much bigger than life. To die in Hollywood is not just to reinforce the understanding that the Faustian pact is sometimes too much of a burden, but it also somehow reinforces just how famous you are. To die unnaturally in the 90210, 90068 or 90069 area codes is to have your death included in the pantheon of Hollywood Babylon, an example of the celebrity trade-off. In the 21st century, one would have thought social media would have diminished this feeling, but in a very real sense it’s actually done the opposite, by exacerbating the distance between the famous and those mediating that fame. Just because you have the ability to mediate someone’s death doesn’t mean you have…

Oliver FRANKLIN-WALLIS Art dealer Inigo Philbrick allegedly conned gallerists and collectors out of millions – then vanished. GQ contributor Oliver Franklin-Wallis investigated: “Art’s latest mega fraud is a caper taking in notorious dealers, auction houses, TV stars, even Saudi royalty. Every day turned up a new twist.” Flora GILL GQ contributor Flora Gill continues her “Date Night Feelings” column at GQ.co.uk this month, with subject matter surveying the perilous landscape of modern dating. From classes in kinky mouse taxidermy to trips to the vagina museum, Gill will sample Britain’s most extreme first-date locations so you don’t have to. Arthur BELEBEAU Arthur Belebeau shot pages for this month’s Details and House Rules sections, highlighting trends in everything from snakeskin loafers to men’s nail polish. “What does it mean to be a man in 2020?” asks Belebeau.…

we need to talk about dababy

‘Shut Up’ showed DaBaby rubbing shoulders with Kanye West and Diddy It has been a bizarre few months in the world of DaBaby. On the one hand, he has become fêted as America’s hottest rapper. That’s the upshot of the two albums he released last year: the first, Baby On Baby, hit the top of the Apple Music albums chart; the second, Kirk, went straight in at No1 in the Billboard 200. His single “Suge” was nominated for two Grammys, he made his Saturday Night Live debut alongside Jennifer Lopez and his list of collaborators now includes Chance The Rapper, Post Malone and Nicki Minaj. On the other, the 28-year-old North Carolinian – real name Jonathan Lyndale Kirk – has been overshadowed by controversy. In January, he was detained, but not charged, by…

the 21 most objectionable tribes on the internet right now

1 THE #LUXURYLIFESTYLER They bought a watch and a car and now that is their personality. 2 Twitter bio: ‘Classical liberal. Crypto trader. MMA’ Ready thyself to hear the worst take ever. 3 The Greta hater A middle-aged man fixated on a 17-year-old girl. Nothing weird about that… 4 The ‘originator’ Just because you’re no longer calling yourself an “influencer” doesn’t mean you’ve got a proper job. 5 The man-threader His thoughts are so brilliant he can’t possibly be expected to fit them into a single tweet… (1/14). 6 The Labour-rose-in-bio bore You are now entering a reason-free zone. 7 The motivational mum Loves: posting inspirational quotes on Facebook.

He wants to “provoke their thinking”. He…

london’s hottest new district is inside a building

The area around Temple Tube station in London is a strange place. Sure, there are landmarks such as Somerset House, but as a living organ of the metropolis it has always been underserved. (If you work there, what’s your best everyday lunch option – Pret?) Enter 180 The Strand, a brutalist building that is transforming into a cultural hive. It is home to Dazed Media, The Vinyl Factory and Soho House, which opens 180 House this summer. The latest outpost will offer a restaurant, a bar, a workspace and the best rooftop pool in the West End. Roll on the warmer weather. 180 THE STRAND, LONDON WC2. 180THESTRAND.COM…

As a line I love it: “I’ll see half of you next week.” Miguel Gallardo could deploy it brilliantly in the next series of Narcos: Mexico. It sounds even more sinister in Spanish: “Veré a la mitad de ustedes la proxima semana.” Such menace – a promise that many won’t make it through the next few days with no shred of remorse nor regret at that prospect. The real Gallardo, of course, is in prison, serving a 37-year sentence for murder, kidnapping, racketeering and drug smuggling. He holds the dubious distinction of being the jefe de jefes (boss of bosses) of the Mexican drug trade in the 1970s and 1980s. But this was Dominic Cummings, the son of a sweet family, raised in Durham, educated at one of the poshest private schools…
