  1. With so many borrowing ideas across the creative industries, I can see why he would've opt out of sending GuyO anything. I would do the same honestly. I can see how she may be into his stuff ( I mean, she likes Aldo Diaz so no surprises here!). Him posting the conversation on ig is just to get street cred as a true rather than sold artist, so bullshit on that.

    With so many friends in the art world, it is funny how M is still reaching for these douchebag nobodies, really. I mean, what about that photographer in Marrakesh, or Marylin Minter? I am still amazed she hasn't filmed a music video with Klein, who's pretty much been a staple in her life since the RIT. Can't she just skype anyone and then discuss ideas? I really wonder...

  2. Hassan Hajjaj is the 'Warhol' of  Marrakech: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hassan_Hajjajhttp://www.thethirdline.com/artists/hassan-hajjaj/biography/

    I think this is more like a one-off, why-not collaboration. She was there, he's got a unique style, and so their teams made it happen. Maybe a few photos make it to a magazine or a yearly calendar or something, but I doubt these will go for the album's artwork.

  3. People did not rush to buy RH because of her Living for love performance at the grammys. I even dare say general audiences were hardly aware she had a new album out. So no, I am also of the opinion that awards and performances at award ceremonies is futile. Any new fans she gets at this point is welcomed, but marginal, hardly a dent in the bulk of her target audience. Thankfully, as @Martin B. already said, she's still putting new music out there rather than profiting from nostalgia.

  4. ^Interesting @promise to try, and yes, not every Catalan supports this independentist movement, hence why many then did not vote. But as it stands now, or at least how it is seen from the outside, the violence somehow justified the independence movement. If nothing had happened, and the referendum went along as just an exercise of political expression, I wonder if perhaps Rajoy would have had more leverage for negotiation. Only time would tell what follows, but all my support to the Catalans, regardless of what they decide.

    The amount of non-coverage that this is getting re police and government brutality towards people voting is shameful.

    In US/UK/AUS media, maybe, but there is coverage of it in Mexico. Ovbviously, as the relation with Spain is still there, after 5+ centuries. The situation with Catalunya is complicated for sure, and the Spanish gov't won't back off from trying to rerain one of its little goldmines. I remember reading a couple of weeks ago a note on a journal mentioning people were indeed confused and not entirely sure about voting in the referendum. Whether it was because of a sense of fear, I don't know. The response by the Spanish gov't, I beleive (and have been told by friends living in Barcelona), will accekerate the support and desire for an independentist movement that has already kncreasingly garnered both traction and a solid structure. Anyway, these are my two cents on this.
