Alicia Gutiérrez – A Model’s Guide

“Life is a path,” – Alicia Gutiérrez

Alicia Gutiérrez, Madrid-native,
is a college graduate with a degree in journalism. At 5’5 with brown hair and hazel eyes, this magnificent belle already has her life’s blueprint. Yesterday, we spoke about her success in modeling and moving from Spain to New York City.

Upon booking a major campaign in her homeland, Alicia decided to contact agencies abroad. Making extensive use of her media training, she compiled a spreadsheet of industry professionals, from model agencies to photographers. On Instagram, she searched for make-up artists and fell into a rabbit hole. It was there, she discovered websites like Models.com, validating as well as authenticating all the talents of the industry.

With good posture and immense confidence, regardless of measurements and shortcomings, this body positive person recognizes her manifestations. And dreams, in bringing them forth, will eventually come true. In fact, as a Miley Cyrus fanatic, she recounts a case where she stumbled into the singer’s camp while waiting in line for an activation. Thinking about how she was feeling, she entered into an awareness while she was near them. This occupation of space helped to reveal her fate.

From time to time we’re in contact with somebody who has something we can’t put our finger on, I don’t know what. The same ‘it’ factor led her to be signed by One Management and to work with different brands like Calvin Klein, SKIMS and Milk Makeup.

Inevitably, her star will align with entertainment giants such as Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum and Ashley Graham. In other words, her mind exudes inner compassion, balance and grace. Traits that a lot of people can’t learn or teach – it’s innate. As our conversation continued, it began to shine brighter and brighter, appearing dowey, “Like a glaze donut,” said Alicia.

It’s only a matter of minutes, this infectious energy will quickly burst into the entertainment. After all, she’s already adorned the pages of Vogue España, Elle Mexico, L’Officiel Mexico and covered Glamour Spain.

SURRENDER album art via Capitol Music Group for use by 360 Magazine

MAGGIE ROGERS – SURRENDER

On July 29, 2022, Capitol Records released Maggie Rogers new album, Surrender – the follow-up to 2019’s Heard It in a Past Life, which entered Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart at No. 1, landed her a GRAMMY nomination for Best New Artist and went on to amass over one billion combined global streams. Raw and revelatory, Surrender finds the acclaimed producer/songwriter/performer examining the most complex emotions with fierce, unflinching vulnerability and alchemizing that heightened feeling into her most joyful output yet. Download / stream Surrender.

Earlier this week, Rogers returned to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and performed her new single, Want Want. Praising the song’s “intensity and crunchy guitar tones,” The New York Times said, “this tale of long-sublimated desire-finally finds an explosive expression in its chorus: ‘And I want you.'” V Magazine said, “‘Want Want’ is a booming track, backed by a groovy drumline and Roger’s own powerful vocals.” View the official video for Want Want,” which Rogers shot in a NYC karaoke bar with director Warren FuHERE.

Hailing Rogers as a “pop music prodigy- an artist who’s in it for the long haul,” Rolling Stone said, “She’s someone who can command banjo-strummed roots music, streaming-friendly synth-pop, and anthemic arena rock.” In this feature, The New York Times praised Surrender as “a hypnotically danceable ode to ecstatic abandon, making leaps and navigating worry.” The Associated Press declares, “the new album only solidifies Rogers as one of the most interesting singer-songwriters out there-brash, confident, compelling and occasionally profane.” Consequence observed, “Surrender is a wholly open and vulnerable turn from Maggie Rogers- her writing has gotten all the more sharp and incisive.” SPIN declared, “(Surrender is) a vibrant and provocative studio album-(Rogers) proved herself as an impassion performer ‘with songs designed to blow people away.'”

The album’s first single, That’s Where I Am,” was included on Former President Barack Obama‘s 2022 Summer Playlist and “Best Songs of 2022 (So Far)” lists from Esquire, SPIN and Paste The video features cameos by David ByrneQuil Lemons and Hamilton Leithauser. Watch the clip for new track “Horses” which Rogers co-directed with Michael Scanlon HERE.

In the days leading up to the album’s release, Metrograph in New York City gave fans the opportunity to preview the album – and view three of the films that inspired it – with the “Surrender Film Club,” a three-night series of screening and listening sessions at the independent movie theatre. American Express Card Members had early access to purchase tickets before the general public to last night’s “Maggie Rogers, The Surrender Release Show – Presented by American Express,” a celebratory concert at Webster Hall on the evening of Surrender‘s debut.

After multiple sold-out headline tours and major festival performances in support of Heard It in a Past Life, Rogers retreated to the coast of Maine in early 2020 and completely cut herself off from the noise of the outside world. For months on end, she spent most of her time reading and resting and walking along the jagged cliffs, compelled by the fierce and unforgiving nature of the North Atlantic Ocean. Channeling the ocean’s unruly energy, she soon arrived at the controlled chaos and ecstatic physicality that would come to define Surrender. The album was co-produced by Kid Harpoon and Rogers and recorded in three distinct locations (her parents’ garage in Maine, Electric Lady Studios in New York City, Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios near Bath, England). Over the course of 12 unfettered yet exactingly crafted tracks, Rogers fully captures the frenetic intensity of the last two years of her life, bringing her bracing honesty to stories of anger and peace and self-salvation, transcendence through sex and freedom through letting go.

MARVEL – THUNDERBOLTS

THE THUNDERBOLTS STRIKE DOWN ON THE MARVEL UNIVERSE WITH A NEW MISSION, A NEW LINEUP, AND A NEW COMIC SERIES!

Check out all the covers and a first look of THUNDERBOLTS #1, the new series by Jib Zub and Sean Izaakse hitting stands August 31

In the wake of DEVIL’S REIGN, super heroes have been outlawed in New York City but starting next month, a new team of authorized super heroes will assemble in THUNDERBOLTS #1! The five-issue limited series will be written by former THUNDERBOLTS scribe Jim Zub and drawn by artist Sean Izaakse, known for his recent work on Fantastic Four: Life Story. In the classic Thunderbolts tradition, Zub and Izaakse will introduce an unexpected lineup that mixes together iconic Marvel super heroes, fan-favorite breakout stars, conflicted anti-heroes, and exciting newcomers. Carefully selected by Mayor Luke Cage to bring justice like lightning throughout his city, the new team will led by Hawkeye and include Spectrum, America Chavez, Power Man, and Kara Killgrave, AKA Persuasion. Also joining this ragtag squad be new two new recruits: mystery man and experienced supersoldier Gutsen Glory, and debuting in issue #2, a strange creature known as Eegro the Unbreakable. The team’s first mission will be taking down Kingpin’s own corrupt Thunderbolts that wreaked havoc throughout the DEVIL’S REIGN saga and restoring the team’s name in an action-packed brawl you won’t want to miss!

“A lot of times people will look at a cast of characters and say, ‘This team lineup is different so this isn’t the team I want,’ but, it’s like you said, the Thunderbolts have gone through so many iterations. There have been incarnations where they’re purely criminal, others where they’re criminals trying to be heroes, and everything in between, but I’ve always felt like, at their heart, the Thunderbolts are a team struggling for redemption,” Zub said about the new roster in an interview with CBR. “Individual members and the team as a whole struggled to dig themselves out of their worst selves or resist the natural pull of who they’ve been in the past. So, for me, redemption is the heart of the Thunderbolts concept.”

Be there for the all-new era of THUNDERBOLTS on August 31! For more information, visit HERE.

Retailers, don’t forget to order your copies of THUNDERBOLTS #1 by Monday, August 1!

DURAN DURAN – ALL OF YOU

With their highly anticipated North American tour starting next month, on July 14, Duran Duran have announced the limited 12” vinyl release of ‘ALL OF YOU’ (EROL ALKAN EXTENDED REWORK), out October 14th and available to pre-order HERE via Phantasy Sound.

Having co-produced Duran Duran’s acclaimed fifteenth studio album, ‘FUTURE PAST’, Erol Alkan returns to deliver a very special Extended Rework. Paying tribute to the band’s pioneering ‘Night Version’ remixes that tipped their earliest material towards the dance floor, this grandiose reimagining equally recalls Alkan’s beloved reworks from over the years.

Recorded with founding members Simon Le BonNick RhodesJohn Taylor, and Roger Taylor, ‘ALL OF YOU’ also features lead guitar from Graham Coxon and backing vocals by Barli. Blessed with the raw material, Alkan distills each element into a glorious disco odyssey totaling nearly ten minutes, an epic but sensual dance floor trip that already ranks amongst his finest work.

Phantasy is proud to release ALL OF YOU’ (EROL ALKAN EXTENDED REWORK) (backed with an instrumental version) on a limited run of 12” vinyl, with an exclusive red vinyl edition of only 300, available only at Rough Trade stores.

Originally debuted by Erol Alkan in Ibiza at the band’s three night ‘Duran Duran: Touch The Sunrise’ immersive weekend experience that lifted the curtain on the island’s summer season, the extended rework is a hypnotic, expansive ode to the FUTURE PAST album highlight. Duran Duran‘s instantly recognizable sound is complemented with new accents and flourishes – John Taylor‘s head-nodding bass line entwines with Graham Coxon‘s guitar lead, both shot through with instant hooks and punctuated by Nick Rhodes’ cinematic keys.

The extended rework arrives as Duran Duran look ahead to their long-awaited North American headlining tour this summer, celebrating the band’s spectacular four-decade career and in continued support of their critically acclaimed 15th studio album, FUTURE PAST.

Starting August 19, the 14-date tour will see the multi-platinum, award-winning legends play iconic venues such as Madison Square Garden in New York City, the Wynn Las Vegas, and The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, amongst others. Tickets for the band’s North American tour are on sale now.

With a career that has seen more than 100 million record sales worldwide, 21 UK Top 20 tunes and 18 American hit singles, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction truly cements the multi-GRAMMY, BRIT Award and Ivor Novello winners as one of the most successful and influential bands of all time.

Duran Duran’s current album, ‘FUTURE PAST’ is available digitally as well as in a variety of physical formats: standard CD, cassette, a limited edition deluxe hardback book CD featuring three additional tracks, and colored vinyl here.  It is also available in immersive Sony 360 Reality Audio on Amazon Music HD, TIDAL HiFi, and Deezer HiFi.

Enlisting the help of some of the most exciting names of the last 50 years, with ‘FUTURE PAST,’ Duran Duran have delivered another incredible genre-spanning piece of work that once again sets them apart from the pack. Working alongside DJ / producer Erol Alkan and pioneering Italian composer / producer Giorgio Moroder, who added his magic to create two instant future classics (‘BEAUTIFUL LIES,’ ‘TONIGHT UNITED’), as well as some of the most unexpected and inspiring names in pop – including Swedish hitmaker, Tove Lo on ‘GIVE IT ALL UP,’ ‘Queen of Drill’ Ivorian Doll on ‘HAMMERHEAD’ and Japan’s CHAI on ‘MORE JOY!’.  In addition, Blur’s Graham Coxon co-wrote and lends his guitar to several tracks on the record and David Bowie’s former pianist Mike Garson adds an exquisite sonic layer to album closer ‘FALLING’. The record, which was recorded across studios in London and LA over lockdown, also features long-time collaborator Mark Ronson who co-wrote and played on ‘WING,’ and was mixed by Mark ‘Spike’ Stent.

Jay Shells w/ Bun B for "Rap Quotes" project/ Rock The Bells Festival via Metra PR for use by 360 Magazine

Rock The Bells Festival

Rock The Bells, the global lifestyle brand and preeminent voce for classic and timeless Hip-Hop founded by LL COOL J, announces it has partnered with New York native street artist, Jay Shells, for a special Rock The Bells Festival themed edition of his viral “rap quotes” project.  

The project first launched in 2013, where multi-disciplinary artist, Jay Shells, began installing over thirty street signs with lyrical references to Hip-Hop songs at their appropriate NYC location. The project helped highlight Hip-Hop’s deep rooted connection to the streets, places and neighborhoods that fueled the creativity and lyrics behind the music. Over the past 9 years, the Rap Quotes project has expanded to other Hip-Hop hotbeds featuring iconic quotes from rap legends across Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Houston and Atlanta.

Last week, Jay Shells brought the “Rap Quotes” project back to New York City, in celebration of Black Music Month and the forthcoming Rock The Bells Festival, where he will post iconic quotes from the full Rock The Bells lineup which includes MC’s LL COOL J, Ice Cube, Rick Ross, Lil’ Kim, Cam’ron, Jim Jones and Juelz Santana from The Diplomats, Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Jadakiss, Scarface, Trina, N.O.R.E, Ladybug Mecca & Butterfly  Digable Planets and Roxanne Shanté. The Rap Quote street signs can be found across New York City, while they last. 

“The Rap Quotes campaign has become a creative journey that’s allowed me to discover a deeper understanding and connection to some of my favorite Hip Hop artists by providing additional context to their lyrics,” says artist Jay Shells. “I’m excited to be working with Rock The Bells during Black Music Month to celebrate the festival lineup and showcase their lyrics around New York City. As long as Hip Hop artists keep making new music, this public art campaign will never be done, and I’m excited to bring it to life in new and unique ways with partners that share the same vision.”

Rock The Bells Festival is a day-long celebration of Hip-Hop culture taking place Saturday, August 6, 2022, in Queens, New York – the week of Hip-Hop’s anniversary (August 11th). The experience will feature live performances, interactive experiences, art exhibits, food, fashion and much more.  

Tickets for the ROCK THE BELLS FESTIVAL are available for purchase  at HERE. For every ticket sale, Rock The Bells will donate partial proceeds to the Universal Hip-Hop Museum in the Bronx whose mission is to celebrate and preserve the people, artifacts, and stories that echo from 1973 to the present.

Cookie Pop Candy Pop

The Summer Fancy Foods extravaganza drew in a surplus of foodies this summer at the Javits Center in New York City. Everyone’s favorite food-connoisseur, the one and only Foodgod, made appearances at the Cookie Pop and Candy Pop booth where he indulged in an array of irresistible delicacies.

Foodgod gained his notoriety while being featured as a regular on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. He continued to grow his online presence as an esteemed food lover as time went on, making him now one of the most renowned foodies internationally in the world. His passion for food even led him to change his legal name to Foodgod. 

SNAX-Sational Brands generated three days full of sweet treats at the Sweets and Snacks Expo from June 12-14. Making a special appearance on June 13, fans were able to meet Foodgod himself while indulging in the delicious treats showcased at the Cookie Pop and Candy Pop booth. 

Commemorating the all-new launch of the Nutter Butter flavor, attendees were treated with the exclusive new taste and comforted with Foodgod’s very own favorite flavor, Sour Patch Kids.

“I have eaten at least 17 bags of Candy Pop Sour Patch Kids popcorn this year. When the first case arrived at my house, I went through them so quickly. It tastes like a delicious sweet and savory party in your mouth. It is beyond,” said Foodgod regarding the flavor.

Director Karam Gill and Lil Baby discuss film Untrapped at Tribeca Film Festival via 360 Magazine

LIL BABY’S UNTRAPPED

Untrapped: The Story of Lil Baby” is the chronological narrative of Dominique Armani Jones, a black horse’s right of passage. Re-invents the American dream for the next generation, operate outside the rule of the general public. Lately, director Karam Gill has been christened by Forbes’ 30 Under 30 and indexed by Variety’s 10 Top Documentary Filmmakers to Watch. He has created a psychological yet visual anthology of the socioeconomic fate of a young black man in America. Recalling the days when Jay-Z moved dope in Marcy, this tale hits a hard chord with the less fortunate – making ends meet with whatever means necessary.

In 2016 the prosperous Quality Control Music imprint catapulted City Girls into the realm of Salt-N-Pepa and the Migos into a stratospheric N.W.A-ish enclave. With their managerial mastery, they signed Cardi B and enlisted him into their brigade. Shortly thereafter, Lil Baby burst into hip-hop celebrity after releasing My Dawg, peaking at 71 on Billboard Hot 100. Widely respected by peers in Atlanta’s West End, the film re-confirmed Lil Baby as one of the most influential in his set.

In short, this tabulated transmission, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, portrays a successful drug dealer who has become an endearing father that amassed immeasurable success. Further, 2020 was his breakthrough to become a global star. Lil Baby was the first and only recording artist to achieve double platinum status and tied Prince as well as Paul McCartney for Billboard Hot 100 hits.

Gloomily, the film did not fully explain his rap culture and his flair for fashion, thus taking away the viewer’s affinity for the protagonist of nonfiction. Looks like a series on the verge of whistling out of the kettle.

Lastly, the ceremony ended with a public Q&A and a special performance by Lil Baby.

AMANDA LEPORE × BURGEROLOGY

In celebration for PRIDE month, Burgerology NYC has partnered with the nightlife queen and LGBTQ+ icon, Amanda Lepore to launch “The Amanda Lepore Milkshake.”   The customer with a sweet tooth will love the vanilla shake with raspberry puree with fresh rainbow cookie crumbs.  With the outside being coated with vanilla icing and confetti sprinkles, the milkshake is topped with candy bracelets, cotton candy, Pixie Stixs, giant lollipops, a slice of rainbow cookie cake, whip cream and Amanda inspired candy lips all topped with Pop Rocks.

“Our family atmosphere is a testament to the fact that every member of our family is apart of Burgerology and we wanted to do something to embrace our LGBTQ+ family,” says John Galatoulas, co- owner of the successful burger chain.  “Amanda was a pleasure to work with and definitely worked with us to bring her iconic spirit to this Milkshake and we hope her fans and our customers will love this exclusive month-long menu item as much as we loved creating it!”  Amanda Lepore purrs,  “I hope everyone has as much fun drinking the drop dead gorgeous The Amanda Lepore Milkshake as I did making it with Burgerology and red lipstick kisses! Happy Pride!”

About BurgerologyThe Galatoulas Family has spent decades mastering the art of creating a restaurant experience that is not only fueled by good food, but by a family atmosphere. With their current venture Burgerology, the family provides a unique feel—with a menu that is both personal and diverse—and a testament to their love of bringing people of all ages together for a meal.

The family atmosphere is a testament to the fact that every member of the Galatoulas Family is a part of Burgerology. Eddie Galatoulas is the CEO, while his business partner and wife Georgia runs HR. Their son John Galatoulas is the head of the kitchen and runs the back of the house, while his sister Maria runs the front of the house. “It’s a chance for my husband and I to spend more time with our kids and operate the business together,” Georgia explains. 

Burgerology offers a distinct menu with a B.Y.O.B. (Build Your Own Burger) that includes everything from Dry Age to Maple Aioli. There are gourmet burgers as well, including Eddie The Greek which includes lamb and feta cheese to the Einstein Burger with braised short ribs and the Saratoga BBQ which is a traditional barbecue dish in burger form. In addition to burgers, there are fried chicken sandwiches, assorted mac ‘n cheese, as well as tacos, salads, and small plates. There are even dessert “burgers” of sorts, known as Doughwiches, along with specialty shakes. For the grown-ups, there are signature cocktails and craft beers. Visually, each item is a work of art in and of itself, with over the top designs that range from gigantic burgers and elaborate desserts, to potion-like cocktails with dry ice and stunning blinking LED ice cubes.

With eight locations across Long Island, Queens, and Manhattan, Burgerology is growing and growing, catching the taste buds of even celebrity patrons like the cast of Power and rapper FivioForeign. At the heart of it, however, Burgerology is a place where memories are made for family members of all ages. Every time they experience Burgerology, they are experiencing a part of the GalatoulasFamily.
