Sean John at 20: Sean Combs on Longevity and Making a Difference

While his name may have changed more times than some people change cars, there has been at least one constant for Sean Combs over the past 20 years: The Sean John brand.
The label’s founder, born Sean John Combs, has been known as Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Diddy and now, Love. But for the hip-hop entrepreneur, they’re all just names that reflect different periods in his life. Call him what you will — his success speaks for itself.
His earnings in 2017 alone, according to Forbes, were $ 130 million and his net worth is estimated at $ 820 million, edging out even Jay Z, who is worth a mere $ 810 million.
Not bad for someone who dropped out of business school in his sophomore year. Now, at 48, Combs has a multipronged career that covers not only fashion but music, TV production, athletes’ beverages and vodka. And, of course, he travels with his own entourage – at his WWD shoot, 17 people arrived well ahead of the star. Given all his activities, getting face time with Combs can be a challenge, hence the reason Sean John’s vice president of design arrived with storyboards and line sheets for the holiday 2018 collection, which he

Can You Spot The Difference Between Amy Schumer And Her Boyfriend’s Anniversary Posts?

Nothing is off limits when it comes to Amy Schumer’s comedy, so why would you expect her to share some overly saccharine anniversary post like that rando from middle school you’re still friends with on Facebook?

Schumer and furniture designer boyfriend Ben Hanisch celebrated one year as a couple on Saturday with two very different social media posts that could not complement each other more hilariously. 

“A year ago today I met the love of my life,” Schumer captioned an endearingly unflattering photo of Hanisch mid-bite at a sports game. “Happy anniversary fuckface. #Iwantoseeotherpeople.”

Earlier in the day, Hanisch took a different approach to spreading the love, posting a throwback black-and-white photo from the night he knew he wanted a lifelong relationship with Schumer. 

“A year ago I met the love of my life. We both weren’t looking for a relationship at the time, but something felt right from the very first night we met,” he wrote. “We ended up spending 6 days in a row together. This pic was taken in New Orleans and was the night I knew I wanted to spend my life with her.”

Schumer first met Hanisch on a private social network “aimed at creative people” after she signed up with a little encouragement from her “Trainwreck” co-star, Vanessa Bayer, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The comedian made her main photo a no-makeup selfie taken on a hike. It apparently got the attention of Hanisch, Schumer’s first match on the site, only 40 minutes after she joined. 

“He was dancing with his grandmother in his profile picture at what looked like a wedding. His song was ‘LSD’ by ASAP Rocky, my favorite song on that album. He wasn’t an actor or photographer by trade like all the other guys ― and he didn’t live in L.A. or New York,” Schumer wrote in her new book, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo. “He was a Chicago guy. We sent each other very simple hellos and short, funny messages.”

Schumer to everyone toiling away on dating apps around the world:

11 Small Things You Can Do In A Marriage That Make A Big Difference

Marriages are often thought of and celebrated in milestones – weddings, babies and new houses, to name a few. But it’s really the small, everyday moments of love, support and kindness between two people that define a lasting partnership.

We recently asked HuffPost readers to share the little, unexpected tips and tricks that make a big difference in their relationships. Find out what they had to say below: 

1. A good, long hug makes all the difference.
“At least once a day, especially after work, we just stand and give each other a long hug. No words or kissing or moving. I stand with my arms up and he stands with his arms out, then we fall into our hug. It’s a nice quiet moment in which we can decompress with each other.” – Michelle Gold

2. Go out of your way to do something silly and sweet to make your partner smile. 
“I hide things like his favorite snacks or a reminder of something fun we did recently in his shoes, pockets or cup holders in his car with little notes full of stupid puns to make him laugh.” – Lacey Marie

3. Never stop saying “thank you” — even for the simplest of tasks. 
“Even after 12 years, my guy always says to me after dinner, ‘Thank you for a great dinner’ — even if it’s a TV dinner. Makes me feel appreciated.” - Debbie Wagner

4. Create a quirky nighttime ritual that’s just about the two of you. 
“We snack in bed — a late-night ice cream or a chocolate bar that the kids know nothing about!” - Humi K. 

5. Don’t just say “I love you.” Tell each other why specifically. 
“Every night before we go to sleep we say to each other, ‘I love you today because…’ We do this no matter what happened that day. We even make sure to call or text it to each other when we are apart.” – Jae Russell

6. Kiss each other goodbye no matter what. 
“Every morning when I leave for work, he’s still in bed. And every day I say ‘I’m leaving’ and even in a dead sleep, he kisses me.” – Steffanie Anne

7. Inside jokes are a must. 
“My husband and I quote movies all the time, and even recently during sex.
Me: ‘You keep moving my hands.’
Him: ‘I don’t know what to do with my hands, quoting Ricky Bobby.
Instant humor.” - Lindsey Lipp

8. Think about how you can make your partner’s day easier, and then do that. 
“My husband warms my car up for me and scrapes the ice and snow off of it in the winter time, even though I go to work way earlier than him and am fully capable of warming up my own car. It really means a lot that he gets up early and freezes just so I don’t have to.” – Wendy Griffith

9. Spending some time apart can strengthen your bond. 
“It’s going to seem backwards but it’s important in my relationship for my husband and I to have our own interests and do our own thing. I’ll go to yoga or dinner with friends and he will play cards. The time apart gives us the opportunity to miss each other and gives us more stories to share.” – Sarah Goodier

10. Don’t underestimate the importance of touch.
“We always sleep naked and touch in bed, even if it’s just a toe against a leg or a hand on a thigh.” – Lauren East

11. Even when you’re busy, let your partner know that he or she is always top of mind. 
“I program ‘events’ in my husband’s phone calendar to alert him throughout the year. Sweet things like ‘Thinking of you xoxo’ and memories like the day we met.” – Kasey Christine St. John

The Biggest (And Best) Difference Between Millennials and My Generation

We’re an enigma, those of us born at the tail end of the ’70s and the start of the ’80s. Some of the “generational” experts lazily glob us on to Generation X, and others just shove us over to the Millennials they love to hate. No one really gets us or knows where we belong.

We’ve been called “Generation Catalano”, “Xennials”, and “The Lucky Ones”, but no name has really stuck for this strange micro-generation that has both a healthy portion of Gen X grunge cynicism, and a dash of the unbridled optimism of Millennials.

A big part of what makes us the square peg in the round hole of named generations is our strange relationship with technology and the Internet. We came of age just as the very essence of communication was experiencing a seismic shift, and it’s given us a unique perspective that’s half analog old school and half digital new school.

You Have Died of Dysentery

If you can distinctly recall the excitement of walking into your weekly computer lab session and seeing a room full of Apple 2Es displaying the start screen of Oregon Trail, you’re a member of this nameless generation, my friend.

We were the first group of kids who grew up with household computers, but still novel enough to elicit confusion and wonder. Gen X individuals were already fully-formed teens or young adults when computers became mainstream, and Millennials can’t even remember a time before computers.

But, when we first placed our sticky little fingers on a primitive Mac, we were elementary school kids whose brains were curious sponges. We learned how to use these impressive machines at a time when average middle class families were just starting to be able to afford to buy their own massive desktops.

This made us the first children to grow up figuring it out, as opposed to having an innate understanding of new technology the way Millennials did, or feeling slightly alienated from it the way Gen X did.

2015-05-25-1432593856-4405809-aOREGONTRAILGAME200x150.jpg

An AOL Adolescence

Did you come home from middle school and head straight to AOL, praying all the time that you’d hear those magic words, “You’ve Got Mail” after waiting for the painfully slow dial-up internet to connect? If so, then yes, you are a member of the Oregon Trail Generation. And you are definitely part of this generation if you hopped in and out of sketchy chat rooms asking others their A/S/L (age/sex/location for the uninitiated).

Precisely at the time that you were becoming obsessed with celebrities, music and the opposite sex, you magically had access to “the Internet,” a thing that few normal people even partially grasped the power of at the time.

We were the first group of high school kids to do research for papers both online and in an old-fashioned card catalogue, which many millennials have never even heard of by the way (I know because I asked my 21-year-old intern and he started stuttering about library cards).

Because we had one foot in the traditional ways of yore and one foot in the digital information age, we appreciate both in a way that other generations don’t. We can quickly turn curmudgeonly in the face of teens who’ve never written a letter, but we’re glued to our smartphones just like they are.

Those born in the late ’70s and early ’80s were the last group to have a childhood devoid of all the technology that makes childhood and adolescence today pretty much the worst thing imaginable. We were the last gasp of a time before sexting, Facebook-shaming and constant communication.

We used pay-phones. We showed up at each other’s houses without warning. We often spoke to our friends’ parents before we got to speak to them. And we had to wait at least an hour to see any photos we’d taken. But for the group of kids just a little younger than us, the whole world changed — and that’s not an exaggeration. In fact, it’s possible that you had a completely different childhood experience than a sibling just five years your junior, which is pretty mind-blowing.

Napster U

Thanks to the evil genius of Sean Parker, most of us were in college in the heyday of Napster and spent many a night using the university’s communal Ethernet to pillage our friends’ music libraries at breakneck speeds. With mouths agape at having downloaded the entire OAR album in under five seconds, we built our music libraries faster than any other dorm-dwelling generation in history.

We were the first to experience the beauty of sharing and downloading mass amounts of music faster than you can say, “Third Eye Blind,” which made the adoption of MP3 players and music streaming apps perfectly natural. Yet, we still distinctly remember buying cassette singles, joining those scam-tastic CD clubs and recording songs onto tapes from the radio. The very nature of buying and listening to music changed completely within the first 20 years of our lives.

A Youth Untouched by Social Media

The importance of going through some of life’s toughest years without the toxic intrusion of social media really can’t be overstated. MySpace was born in 2003 and Facebook became available to all college students in 2004. o if you were born in 1981-1982, for example, you were literally the last graduating class to finish college without social media being part of the experience.

When we get together with our fellow Oregon Trail Generation friends, we frequently discuss how insanely glad we are that we escaped the middle school, high school and college years before social media took over and made an already challenging life stage exponentially more hellish.

We all talked crazy amounts of shit about each other, took pictures of ourselves and our friends doing shockingly inappropriate things and spread rumors like it was our jobs, but we just never had to worry about any of it ending up in a place where everyone and their moms (literally) could see it a hot second after it happened.

But unlike our older Gen X siblings, we were still young and dumb enough to get really into MySpace and Facebook in its first few years, so we understand what it feels like to overshare on social media and stalk a new crush’s page.

Time after time, we late ’70s and early ’80s babies were on the cusp of changes that essentially transformed modern life and, for better or worse, it’s shaped who we are and how we relate to the world.

Kendall Jenner And Kourtney Kardashian Have Quite The Height Difference In Hilarious Instagram Photo

There’s definitely a family resemblance among the Kardashian and Jenner sisters. But there’s one major area where they don’t all look alike.

In a new Instagram photo, Kim Kardashian appeared to poke fun at the height difference between Kourtney Kardashian and her sister/supermodel Kendall Jenner.

Both Kardashian and Jenner are clad in only in a white button-down shirt, but Jenner (notably wearing heels) towers over her older sister. The perfect caption for the photo reads simply “Twins.”

Twins

Kourtney Kardashian also recently ruled Instagram with a very different kind of picture. The star channeled 2001 MTV Video Music Awards-era Britney Spears by posing with a giant yellow snake.

It looks like Kardashian may have been the shorter member of that pair, too.

The Cinema Makers: Public Life and the Exhibition of Difference in South-Eastern and Central Europe Since the 1960s


The Cinema Makers” investigates how cinema spectators in southeastern and central European cities became cinema makers through such practices as squatting in existing cinema spaces, organizing cinema “events,” writing about film, and making films themselves. Drawing on a corpus of interviews with cinema activists in Germany, Austria, and the former Yugoslavia, Anna Schober compares the activities and artistic productions they staged in cities such as Vienna, Cologne, Munich, Berlin, Hamburg, Ljubljana, Belgrade, Novi Sad, Subotica, Zagreb, and Sarajevo. The resulting study illuminates the differences and similarities in the development of political culture-and cinema’s role in that development-in European countries with pluralist-democratic, one-party socialist, and post-socialist traditions.

“Lisa Adams: The Difference Between Human Nature And The Human Spirit,” Duke Art Gallery, Azusa Pacific University

Photos courtesy of Lisa Adams and CB1 Gallery.

Everything’s here. A modern art lexicon. Figuration. Audubon birds, the texture of tree trunks, the cotton candy wispiness of cumulus clouds. Things hover in an atmospheric space. Abstraction. Some rectangles are diaphanous. Some are opaque. They occlude land- and cityscapes like geometric smudges on a window. Irregular negative spaces blaze with blues, reds, and greens. They flatten the space and emphasize the picture plane. Gravity-compelled paint blobs whose tendrils winnow down the surface. And both. A flower that looks like a Rothko circle. An eclipsed sun that doubles as a Malevich Suprematist sphere. Arrangements of flowers and clouds that look like Fourth of July fireworks.

2014-09-10-LISAADAMSDrowningOutAllBirdsong_edited1.jpg
Drowning Out All Birdsong

A gamut of emotions. They’re joyous. Titles that allude to birdsong, epiphanies, and paradise. Subject matter that features birds that eat and drink. Flowers that reach for the sun, that drape freeway signage. Sinuous vines that cascade like a waterfall. And they’re melancholy. Smog that smothers trees. A pink cross that negates flowers that emerge from a decapitated tree. The suggestion of freeway noise that drowns out birdsong. Individually and from piece to piece, subjects decompose, they regenerate.

2014-09-10-LISAADAMSPrivilegeEntailsResponsibility.jpg
Privilege Entails Responsibility

The human condition. Sisyphus? He’s joyless, one side of the existential coin. Adams’ work combines three things. The persistence of Sisyphus. The tranquility of a Buddhist monk. And the unacknowledged rainbow exuberance of a flower vendor. It documents a world that generates and entropies, regenerates and re-entropies. Any one point on the continuum is a worldview, a zeitgeist. They’re but the swing of a pendulum. Adams’ work subsumes them all, Edens, dystopias, and everything in between. It’s pre- and postlapsarian. Those birds that seem so innocent? They aren’t. That sky that seems so blue? It isn’t. The flora that suggests regeneration? It can’t. They’re all better for the experience. It’s a world beset by lassitude, fecklessness, and carelessness. The one thing you don’t see in her work is people. That’s because her work is about the difference between human nature and the human spirit. We are the cause and the effect.

2014-09-10-LISAADAMSSecondsToGo.jpg
Seconds To Go

Everything’s here. There’s a unity, taut and prescribed. Though the scenarios aren’t utopian, the colors are bright and hopeful. The compositions are stable. They suggest cycles, constant states of affairs. It’s an aesthetic that’s not so much inchoate as un-choate. Beauty is a perpetual state of blossoming.

2014-09-10-LISAADAMSParadiseNotwithstanding.jpg
Paradise Notwithstanding

These are myths, personal, subjective myths, a breviary, a daybook. They sigh with nostalgia and resignation, common sense and poetic rapture. They’re didactic the way a stained glass window is didactic.

2014-09-10-LISAADAMS_AndTheWorldShallRemainSilent.jpg
And The World Shall Remain Silent

Call them Adams’ Mythology. Each picture, all seven of them, tells a story. It’s the same story, a Joseph Campbell one. It’s not a modern (or postmodern) tale. It’s a timeless one. As Campbell writes, “we are concerned … with problems of symbolism, not of historicity.” It involves a hero, scratch that, a heroine. She leaves home (Separation), endures trials (Initiation), and matures from the trek. It’s the voyage back, the sharing, (Return) that interests us. Her sharing of the wisdom acquired, the lessons learned.

2014-09-10-LISAADAMS_TheMireofEpiphany.jpg
The Mire of Epiphany

This mythology doesn’t just provide emotional ballast. It heralds, time after time, a vivid renewal of life. It’s not about alienation but forgiveness. It’s about the way a personal myth can tap into universal truths of perpetual renewals. She’s managed to step out of the labyrinth of style and contemporary concern. This provides her with a bird’s eye view of the world as it can become, the way it has been, and the way it will continue to alternate between becoming and having-been.

It’s not monumental work but it is heroic. It holds fast to the present while it focuses on the future in the face of grin-and-bear-it doldrums. It shows the episodic nature of the world, a given, behind which lies an unchanging essence of I can. And so, Campbell again: “every one of us shares the supreme ordeal – carries the cross of the redeemer – not in the bright moments of his tribe’s great victories, but in the silences of his personal despair.”

The exhibition runs until September 26. The Gallery is located at Azusa Pacific University, 701 E. Foothill Boulevard, Azusa, CA 91702. For more information, call (626) 387-5726 or write art design@apu.edu.

How To Tell The Difference Between ‘In Like’ And ‘In Love,’ According To Science

We all know there’s a difference between being “in like” with someone and being “in love,” but it’s often hard to tell how the other person feels about you.

A new study about love and lust, recently published in Psychological Science, discovered how to tell if a person is feeling the romantic, long-term will-you-marry-me kind of love or the more common I-just-want-to-have-sex-with-you sexual lust.

It turns out, the answer lies in how they look at you.

Researchers from the University of Chicago conducted two studies on a group of heterosexual undergrads. In the first study, participants looked at a set of 120 photographs of couples and were asked if the photos elicited feelings of romantic love or sexual desire. Sexual desire was defined as an increase in sexual thoughts and fantasies toward a target, whereas love was defined as a sentimental and tender state that made participants long for a union.

Afterwards, the participants were shown the same photographs and asked simply to look at them and think about their feelings. While students were gazing at the photographs, their eye movements were tracked and recorded to determine where on the photo they fixated most and for how long.

In the second study, participants were given 80 photographs of individuals of the opposite sex and asked if they could possibly feel love toward or lust toward them. Again, their eye movements were tracked.

At the end of both studies, the results were pretty clear: “Subjects were more likely to fixate on the face when making decisions about romantic love,” the researchers wrote. “Judgments that involved lust elicited more eye fixations toward the body.”

Indeed, as the authors point out, “Mutual eye gaze is one of the most reliable markers of love between couples.”

So if your S.O. spends more time looking at your face than looking at your butt, odds are good that he or she is in it for the long haul.
