You know, music is special to people, so they hold it really tight to themselves. A lot of times when it becomes popular they feel like its not theirs anymore, they feel like its not just a part of their little group. But I feel like music is for everyone.

Kanye West, regarding the 2008 release of 808s & Heartbreak. Read the whole article here.

"They asked me what genre to put it under. I was like, Put it under pop, because I’ll wear that. I love wearing a label that people think is uncool. Because it’s like, is it not good music now? You know, music is special to people, so they hold it really tight to themselves. A lot of times when it becomes popular they feel like its not theirs anymore, they feel like its not just a part of their little group. But I feel like music is for everyone. Like when you were a little kid, did you really think about how many kids sang “Frere Jacques”? I make music that is good, and it should be the biggest."

Summer was all about stacks n’ stacks of thin, bright bracelets, but now we’re Fall-ing for all things bigger and bolder.  Take it from icons like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc and Wonder Woman, powerful arm armor packs a stylish punch. Our crush of the moment is jewelry designer  Jennifer Fisher, whose pieces prove that cuffs always contain the right stuff…so get inspired and create a next-level look that screams confidence.  We dipped into our arm-candy jar and grabbed some lightweight pony beads to create a look that’s j’amazing.
To create:  start with a colored  bead and tie to one end of elastic thread as a “stopper”.  String on an even number of gold and silver pony beads that measure to the circumference of your wrist.  Start the 2nd row by adding another bead and stringing it through the second-to-last bead in the 1st row. Add another bead and string through every other bead of the previous row as you create your 3rd row.  Continue this process until the cuff meets desired length, pulling tight as you go.  Once you’re  finished- connect by sewing the two ends to each other and tie the string to the “stopper” bead with a knot and then trim off the “stopper” bead.
