Diaspoura Speaks Her Mind On "Glisten"


She'll "go off like Lily on 'Shut Up And Listen'"

Anjali Naik, aka electronic artist Diaspoura, is not one to mince words—in her music or otherwise. Today, she goes off in the visuals for her track "Glisten," premiering today exclusively on NYLON, and explains to us what it means to be a real ally.

She tells NYLON, "Liberals on the sidelines do not deserve the satisfaction of even knowing about black, brown, queer, trans, working-class, and femme resilience—they should be earning that by providing financial and emotional support."

She continues, "They can see our tears and our sweat and how we gloss ourselves up and move forward again—it's free for a follow, and it's even tracked and sold back to us. This was my realization when I wrote and produced 'Glisten.' And for the video, my friends and I—a crew of entirely femme, trans, and non-binary people of color, on- and off-screen—rally up and move on with or without them. Buy a ticket or get left behind."

In case "Glisten" leaves you eager to dig into the rest of her catalogue (it will), today she also releases her new Traumaporn EP. After that, dig into her older tracks to uncover "GTF," released just after Trump's inauguration with absolute lyrical gems like: "Yea, you're so full of it/ watch me take a bullet/ and you give me shit/ got some tea to sip."

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
