American Dream


X-Factor creator Simon Cowell calls singer Olly Murs “very, very, very cool,” but most Americans missed his X-Factor journey to stardom, as the show was aired for a British audience across the pond.

Genesis P-Orridge & Marie Losier

Genesis P-Orridge and Marie Losier met purely by chance in a crowded Soho art gallery in 2006.

Particulièrement en écoutant et en observant Adam Cohen qui me reçoit en toute simplicité dans la maison de son célèbre père au cœur du Mile-End à Montréal. [article in French] Continue reading
