Chanel West Coast attends CLMBR event IN WeHo via 360 MAGAZINE.

CLMBR Fitness

CLMBR is a vertical exercise machine that works on both the upper and lower body, “…the best kind of primal movements that a person can do,” according to founder Avrum Elmakis, who was on hand to host the event.

CLMBR Fitness celebrated its elaborate grand opening in West Hollywood on Thursday. Chanel West Coast dazzled the crowd on the red carpet with her curvaceous baby body. She wasn’t the only head-turner at this immersive activation. Other notable guests were invited: Luke Rockhold, Dom Fenison, Carter Jenkins, Maximilian Acevedo, Brandon Graves, artist James Goldcrown, Bunnie Barbie, CJ Hammond, Hari Tahov, Jules Liesl, B. Thompson, Nick Pfeifer, Shaka Smith, Nicole Steen, Skinner Jones, Lucas Dell, and Logan Noh.

While Team CLMBR demonstrated cutting-edge technology and equipment, many guests indulged in generous servings of libations and vegan bite-sized Mexican tapas, provided by Sugar Taco. A variety of adult beverages were served: Lobos 1707 Tequila, Nue Vodka, and Henderson Whiskey. Caliwater cactus and PATH water were among the non-alcoholic beverages available.

This workout is a low-impact, total-body routine designed by some of the most prominent members of the entertainment industry. And, obviously, it was fabricated for the affluent, high-powered executives who have little time for anything less than results: Jay Z, LeBron James, Pitbull, Ryan Seacrest, Oliver Trevena, and Novak Djokovic.

This cutting-edge facility, located directly above the once-disheveled Ramada Hotel in Santa Monica, will provide group and one-on-one instruction to the health-conscious consumer. With memberships priced just under $3,000, it’s already in direct competition with rival fitness clubs like SoulCycle and Equinox.

Post-pandemic, those clubhouses have been plagued by poor management, daunting customer service, and dwindling amenities, leaving the market wide open for new entrants.

Zara Larsson – Sommer House

Multi-platinum global pop star Zara Larsson has today detailed plans for her own brand new record label, Sommer House. Sommer House will be licensed through Epic USA and distributed by Sony Sweden for all forthcoming Zara Larsson releases.

In a unique agreement made with TEN Music Group CEO Ola Håkansson – who originally signed Zara – Larsson has also today taken control of her entire recording catalogue (which has been streamed over 9 billion times). Having been signed to the Swedish independent in 2011, Zara’s relationship with TEN has resulted in one of her country’s most successful international exports – a story that continues in this new venture…

Commenting on the deal today, Zara states: “ I really want to say thank you to Ola and everyone at TEN for giving me the opportunity to break out as an artist and helping me start my career. You are now also making something happen that is so, so rare for a woman in the music industry – the capability to own my own catalogue. With that, it makes perfect sense that I would start my own record company. I very much look forward to my future and to a continued collaboration with Sony as well.’

“This is a natural and exciting development in Zara’s continuing music career,” Ola Håkansson comments. “We have worked together for more than 10 fantastic, eventful years and Zara is, despite her young age, an established and respected international artist with extensive experience of the international music scene today. It is going to be really exciting to follow Zara’s ongoing music career. I wish her the best of luck, and I am convinced the she is going to achieve all her musical dreams and get to show her amazing artistry on the worlds biggest stages.”

Epic CEO Slvia Rhone, meanwhile, closes:  “Zara has been a cornerstone artist for Epic Records, and we are privileged and excited to be involved in the next chapter in her luscious career.”

 Currently featuring on Alesso’s latest single ‘Words’, Zara Larsson has just dropped her Spotify Singles cover of ‘Lay All Your Love On Me’ in a pulsing rework produced by Mark Ralph (Years & Years, Georgia). Zara was also invited to attend the premiere of ABBA’s ‘Voyage’ residency at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, ahead of Larsson’s European tour this summer and brand new music expected this autumn.

All women have superpowers. Wielding those superpowers, Zara Larsson provokes and pushes pop music and culture forward with empowered, enlightened, and energized anthems that soar and seduce all at once. With every move, she continues to quietly make history and break records. Her RIAA platinum-certified 2017 full-length, ‘So Good‘, notably stands out as the second-most-streamed debut on Spotify by a female artist ever. Zara’s growing catalogue boasts one smash after another, including the triple-platinum ‘Never Forget You‘ with MNEK, the platinum ‘Lush Life‘ and ‘Ain’t My Fault‘, as well as the unstoppable Clean Bandit collaboration ‘Symphony‘. Along the way, she has received various awards and honors at the Swedish Grammy Awards, Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, MTV EMAs, and even graced the stage of the Nobel Peace Prize concert. 2020’s second international album, ‘Poster Girl‘, featured breakout hits ‘Ruin My Life‘, and ‘Wow‘, and saw Zara make further strides towards Pop’s top table working alongside the likes of Max Martin and Young Thug. Launched entirely in lockdown, the project has surpassed 1 billion streams, seen Zara perform virtually for Roblox, and host a spectacular show in partnership with fellow Swedish icons Ikea on International Women’s Day, before playing a sold-out European arena tour“One of pop’s biggest and outspoken stars” (The Guardian). Currently featuring on Alesso’s new single ‘Words’, watch out for more on Zara Larsson coming soon.

LIL YACHTY – MICHIGAN BOY BOAT

LIL YACHTY ANNOUNCES APRIL 23 RELEASE OF MICHIGAN BOY BOAT, REVEALS ARTWORK

WATCH THE TRAILER FOR THE MIXTAPE SPOTLIGHTING MICHIGAN RAPPERS HERE

Today Lil Yachty reveals the artwork and April 23 release date for his highly-anticipated mixtape “Michigan Boy Boat.” Featuring rappers from Detroit and Flint, Yachty unveiled a behind-the-scenes trailer filmed in the Great Lake State.

WATCH HERE.

Lil Yachty has long been collaborating with Michiganders. Since his 2017 Tee Grizzley collaboration “From the D to the A,” Yachty has been featured on songs with Michigan artists Sada BabyYN JayRNC Mike, and Krispylife Kitdd–and these were only primers.

“Yachty’s upcoming mixtape, Michigan Boy Boat, is an ode to the state where a new crop of MCs is currently restitching the fabric of modern hip-hop. It’s also a testament to one of the 23-year-old rapper’s greatest gifts: his ear for talent,” states Rolling Stone.

In February, Lil Yachty released a video for his song, “Royal Rumble,” which features six MCs from Michigan’s vibrant rap scenes. Along with Yachty, the song boasts Krispylife Kid, RMC Mike, Babyface Ray, Rio Da Yung OG and Icewear Vezzo.

Stereogum wrote of the song/video: “For the past few years, the Atlanta rap star Lil Yachty has been making tracks with the best rappers that the thriving Michigan underground has to offer. Yachty was arguably the first mainstream rapper to recognize the talent of people like Sada Baby and Rio Da Yung OG, and when he records tracks with guys like that, it usually brings out the best in him.” Pitchfork stated Yachty “always holds his own and makes everyone around him sound more motivated than usual.”

Lil Yachty has been busy. In between developing a heist movie based on the card game Uno, a series for HBO Max, diving into crypto currency, partnering with Reese’s Puffs cerealremixing the Saved by the Bell theme song, and becoming a favorite on TikTok, “hes a mentor and a mogul…”he’s become an elder statesman of a certain brand of young superstar — and something like the Gen Z answer to Diddy” (Rolling Stone).

Kylie Jenner Appears on Vogue Hong Kong Cover

By Elle Grant

In recent months, the metropole Hong Kong appears almost daily in news feeds: ongoing protests, clashes with Beijing, the impacts of the new security law, and more. This week, however, Hong Kong finds itself in the news with a less then predictable name: Kylie Jenner.

The 22-year-old makeup and reality television mogul graces Hong Kong Vogue’s self-titled “Action Issue.” She poses in cranberry latex with white hot nails with the text “Act Now” printed across her lap. While the imagery of the cover is elegant, many are calling into question the decision to have Jenner fronting the issue, citing the ongoing dynamics currently in Hong Kong. The cover reveal comes just two days after Hong Kong delays its election, in what many are calling an effort to support the growing pro-Beijing presence in the city and cripple pro-democracy candidates. Both revelations follow years of protests in favor of democracy, with heightened tensions over the last few months due to the coronavirus and a new national security law imposed at the end of June.

Vogue Hong Kong cites on Instagram: “At the age of just 22, her beauty brand #KylieCosmetics has achieved far reaching success, and she is also active in charitable causes including funding surgeries for children with cleft lips and palate through Smile Train” as its reasons behind making Jenner the cover star. Similarly, Jenner gushed about her excitement on her own Instagram, but made no reference to the current political situation in the region. The cover appears especially interesting in context of the September issue of Vogue U.K. which features 20 different activists photographed in black and white.

Diet Prada on Instagram, a notorious critic of the fashion community, writes “Y tho?” when questioning the “Kendall for Pepsi move.” The latter statement is in reference to Kylie’s older sister Kendall Jenner’s own brush with controversy. Severe backlash and accusations of political tone deafness followed her now infamous 2017 Pepsi ad. In the ad, Kendall Jenner hands a police officer a Pepsi at a protest, seemingly in reference to the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests.

Comments, especially on social media, have called out Jenner and Vogue Hong Kong for the decision. “$5 she doesn’t even know what’s going on in Hong Kong,” joked one Instagram user. Another argued for criticism to be steered away from Jenner and instead towards the magazine: “How about you actually put an activist on the cover that stands for the message you’re trying to portray?” Currently, neither Vogue Hong Kong nor Kylie Jenner have commented on the criticism.

Conlangio, free web-based application for constructed languages.

There is often a secret ingredient that draws us into powerful performances on our television, captivates us with storytelling in our favorite books and has us hooked on to the latest video game. That secret ingredient is a constructed language and there is a Denver startup focused on creating a platform for language creators around the world and promoting the art, science, and craft of inventing languages.

That company is Conlangio, an innovative language-construction software company with a free web-based constructed language application. This startup – not even a year old and still in its early phases – already has over 400 language creators and over 400 languages created using their software. It has created quite a buzz in this niche community and is planning to expand to content-creation and educational material in the near future.

The founder of Conlangio, Patrick Gaston, is a classically trained linguist, U.S. Army veteran, and software engineer living in Denver, CO.

“Language is my absolute passion. After getting my degree in Linguistics and becoming a software engineer, I really made it a mission to use this unique skill set to create language applications for underrepresented language communities. I started creating my own language in 2016 as a way to deal with some issues transitioning from military to university so this is where I wanted to start my journey,” says Patrick Gaston

One of the most amazing things about this startup is that it was created on nights and weekends as a side project – and still is!

“I’m kind of just riding this wave right now. Conlangio has definitely grown to a point that makes it hard to do part-time but I am loving every minute of it. This whole journey has already been so surreal and if I get to work on Conlangio full-time, it will be amazing,” says Gaston.

In the past year, Conlangio has grown to a diverse team of 4, including 2 military veterans.

What is a constructed language? 
Constructed languages, or conlangs for short, are languages that have been created artificially, by an individual or a group, with the intent of being used for communication by a group of speakers, to enhance art, entertainment and more.

You may be more familiar than you think! If you’re one of the millions that tuned into HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, you’ve heard of Dothraki, which is a fictional language constructed by David J. Peterson – an American language creator. That’s not all. Some other places you can find constructed languages are James Cameron’s Avatar, The 100, and the Lord of the Rings to name a few. That list is only getting bigger.

Why create a language?

People create languages for all kinds of reasons, some of these might include own personal use, video games, films or TV shows.

Stay tuned…
Be sure to keep an eye on this startup, as they may be responsible for your next favorite hit series.
