The Last Curious Man: The enormous life of Anthony Bourdain, according to those who knew him best.
Tenaglia: I don't think it was a shock that one day we would get a call. It was like, "Okay. Maybe we should prepare ourselves that one day Tony's either gotten into a plane crash, or flipped on an ATV, had a heart attack."

Collins: Not expecting, but you acknowledge that it could happen.

Tenaglia: But we didn't expect that call. It's like someone's just hit you with a giant fucking frying pan.

Toward a More Radical Selfie
But I don’t mean to bemoan social media (boring, it’s been done, everyone’s worried but no one will change). Really, I want to use that labyrinth to try to find a route back to an entirely different type of self-portraiture, one that offers an alternative (and more positive) interconnection between character, work, and the female subject.

Payless marked up discount shoes to $600 at luxury event 'Palessi'
Troubled discount footwear chain Payless Shoesource may want to change its name.
The privately-held Topeka, Kansas-based shoe seller executed the reverse of a bait-and-switch operation recently with a luxury influencer event held in Santa Monica, California.
Payless took over a former Armani store, renamed the retail location as "Palessi," and stocked the outlet with its discount-priced boots, heels, tennis and leisure shoes. Then, it invited a flock of partygoers and sold them the shoes, typically priced at $20-$40 in Payless stores, at inflated designer price tags of $200 to $600.

Poll Says Beyoncé is Most Politically Divisive Celebrity | Music News | Consequence of Sound
Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh are viewed as less divisive?!?!?
There’s a lot of division in our country right now, as a glance at any daily newspaper will tell you. But if there’s one thing we can all agree on it’s that Beyoncé is Queen, yas? Well, apparently not, according to a new poll that finds Bey is the most politically divisive celebrity in the US.
Conducted by Morning Consult (via The Hill) the poll asked 6,609 Republicans and Democrats their opinions of members on the Forbes 100 list of highest-paid entertainers. While Beyoncé, who vocally supported Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid and gave a politically charged performance of “Formation” at the 2016 Super Bowl halftime show, received a net 63% favorable rating among Dems, Repubs had her at -3%. That 66-point gap was the largest amongst any of the celebs on the list, beating out Sean Hannity (65-point gap) and Rush Limbaugh (61-point gap) to claim the title of Most Politically Polarizing Entertainer
