It goes on sale tonight!

For anime fans who can't bring themselves to buy merchandise from Hot Topic, Studio Ghibli is providing the perfect thing to fill in the gap in your fall wardrobe. Today, the studio's fashion brand, GBL, is releasing two bomber jackets embroidered with graphics inspired by two of its most iconic films, Ponyo and My Neighbor Totoro. Both jackets are "velveteen" material, perfect for throwing on for layering season. Unlike the brand's previous jacket releases, these will also be available in size small, just in case tinier fans don't want to rock the oversized look. 

The Totoro-inspired jacket is an easy bomber to blend into your neutral-heavy fall wardrobe, coming in a classic black with tan collar and cuffs.

The Ponyo jacket boasts a bright baby blue fabric with red stripes on the collar and cuffs. The embroidery features the original English title of the anime, Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea

With Ponyo celebrating its 10th anniversary and Totoro its 30th, there's no better time to make the fandom part of your daily style. The jackets go on sale at 9pm EST and will set you back approximately $270. 

We talked with the "1950" singer on her new collaboration with Mark Ronson for 'Late Night Feelings'

Today, Mark Ronson releases his debut full-length album Late Night Feelings, and it's packed with stellar female vocalists straddling all genres, from Camilla Cabello to Alicia Keys to Angel Olsen to our favorite star-on-the-rise, King Princess. During this past weekend at Bonnaroo, I had the chance to pick KP's brain about their collab, "Pieces of Us," ahead of its release.

"We're real humans at the end of the day"

Twenty-two-year-old Lauren Jauregui is part of a generation that grew up in a world where social media was a given. But social media platforms would play a particularly significant role in her life once she became a public figure at the age of 16, first as a strong competitor on the televised talent show X-Factor, and then as a member of a little girl group you may have heard of: Fifth Harmony. Jauregui's seen the good side of social media, like building relationships with fans and spreading positivity; but, she's also experienced what happens when cancel culture takes hold, and online bullying becomes a real problem.

"Need" is maybe not the right word, but we want to hear Lana sing all these songs

Today is Lana Del Rey's birthday; it's the Summer Solstice, the start of Cancer season (oh, did you also think Lana was a Gemini?), and the astrological Cusp of Magic. Quite a day, when you think about it. And, like, I think about it a lot, because it's, um, also my birthday.

She's Barbie, and he's Ken

The first day of summer has brought new music from some of my favorite rappers. Gucci Mane and Trina debuted new albums. And my problematic fave, Nicki Minaj, dropped her anticipated single "Megatron." It's a smooth, reggae-inspired track that makes sense of the colorful jungle imagery she used on its cover. It's also a strong, defiant declaration of love for her boyfriend Kenneth Petty.

This is hilarious

Rihanna and Seth Meyers got beautifully, messily drunk for last night's episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, and it's everything you'd hope it is and more. More than a few drinks in, Meyers requested that Rihanna give him a makeover using Fenty Beauty products, and the results are, well... drunk.
