New York City Fashion Designer Terry Singh shows at NYFW announced via 360 MAGAZINE

GURU: TERRY SINGH

Terry Singh exhibited his gender-neutral SS23 collection during NYFW at Daylight Studio on Friday, September 9.

Vaughn Lowery has taken Singh to heart in a two-part series on 360 MAG Amazon | Google | Spotify | Apple podcast. They have a meticulous discussion about the new world order and how it will redefine gender norms.

Native New Yorker, Terry Singh, is reshaping the way the world views masculinity, diminishing society’s view of how a man should look.

After a six-month tour of India as a Yogi, Singh had a revelation. During a morning ritual at the summit of a mountain, his swami changed forever his male state of mind while bathing him while the sun kissed his skin.

After his spiritual journey, Singh defied his Western imposition of love, giving birth to his eponymous mark. He was inspired to recreate this sense of release through a dhoti, an ancient garment worn by leaders and warriors. “I was inspired by the freedom to wear a dhoti because it flows and it also somehow brought me to this space,” the cultural curator said.

In addition, Terry explains that nature is the essential motivation for his capsule. ‘‘I would say that we are always evolving and changing tomorrow, you can watch a documentary, you notice something in nature, and you feel something, and that feeling that comes to you is so intrinsic that it only needs you,’’ states Terry.

Upon his return to New York, he received a new direction: reintroduce the perspective of men’s clothing. This deep movement enabled Singh to proudly wear his dhoti alias the NYC wrap. His vision was to impact world culture. According to the designer, dhoti is a reflection of his transforming experience and the way we enter into ourselves over a period of time.

Terry Singh, a father of four, identified his suits as his signature, pairing them with his elegant salt and pepper hairstyle. While designing the pieces, Singh constantly ensures that he preserves a certain masculinity in the room. Instead of wearing a belt, he added adjustable buttons to the waist strap.

No doubt, Terry Singh, alongside other progressives like Pyer Moss and Telfar break down the barriers in fashion. Lowery continues, “You are saving lives.” After all, the statement of classy masculine figurines on a stage like NYFW will encourage others to do the same, creating a domino effect. And, perhaps put an end to the intimidation which Jaden Smith, Harry Styles and Machine Gun Kelly continually encounter in the mass media rocking skirts.

In the very near future, Terry Singh expects men of all ages to reach for his suit of armor instead of a traditional tuxedo.

Fentanyl Petition

Families Against Fentanyl announced it had surpassed 25,000 signers of its petition asking the United States government to declare illicit fentanyl a Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD). They join a who’s who of bipartisan leaders who are calling for the WMD designation.

The milestone was achieved in the aftermath of CDC data released in 2021 projecting that more than 100,000 people died of drug-related causes in the previous calendar year, and following data unearthed by Families Against Fentanyl in December that found illicit fentanyl to be the #1 cause of death for Americans between the ages of 18 and 45—data that have been independently verified.  The announcement also comes on the heels of three Connecticut middle school students being hospitalized for fentanyl overdose after being exposed at their school. One of those students, a 13-year-old, has died.

Even more alarming: fentanyl’s extreme potency gives it the dark potential to be used by terrorists in a chemical attack on American citizens. Declaring illicit fentanyl a WMD would trigger an all-of-government response to this national threat, activating new resources and manpower to tackle this unprecedented danger.

“Fentanyl deaths doubled in just two years and it’s now the number one cause of death of Americans 18-45. Bold action is needed to reverse this trend,” Families Against Fentanyl founder James Rauh stated. “With more than 25,000 people adding their names to our petition, it’s now crystal clear: Americans are fed up with the status quo. They also see the potential a WMD designation would have to stop this poison from flooding our country and killing our loved ones. Declaring illicit fentanyl a WMD is the innovative answer to this crisis—it would allow us to root out the international manufacturers and traffickers of this poison before it reaches our streets. It would cut the smuggling of illicit fentanyl into the United States, enhance penalties for the cartels trafficking in this poison, and provide new protections to the American people from this threat.

“Almost all illicit fentanyl is manufactured outside of the United States. Designating illegal fentanyl as a Weapon of Mass Destruction will empower the U.S. to shift from a policy of mass incarceration of Americans to an all-of-government approach to cut off the supply chain at its source, effectively stopping the flow of this poison into our country. Meanwhile, we can provide compassionate care to those struggling with addiction by investing in harm reduction, expanding access to affordable rehabilitation programs, mental health counseling, and holistic care options.”

The Families Against Fentanyl petition will ultimately be presented to the Biden Administration and the U.S. Congress.

About Families Against Fentanyl

Families Against Fentanyl was founded in 2019 by Akron, Ohio resident James Rauh and his wife Valorie following the untimely death of their son Tom from fentanyl poisoning.

Lauren Jenkins MILES ON ME PART 1 EP cover from Emily Ginsberg, Big Hassle Media for use by 360 Magazine

LAUREN JENKINS EP – MILES ON ME PART 1

“I will always be proud of my first record,” says Lauren Jenkins, “but MILES ON ME is what I hoped NO SAINT could be from start to finish.” MILES ON ME (told in three parts) picks up where NO SAINT left off, telling the unapologetic, brutally honest next chapter of Jenkins’ story.

In 2020 Jenkins and her then-record label parted ways, giving her an independence that she hadn’t had in nearly seven years. “I finally had the freedom to write, record, produce and tell my story exactly the way I wanted to,” she says. “It’s strange to hear your own voice and realize you’ve been whispering for a long time. With this realization, the sparks ignited. I called on my friends and collaborators to make this record with me, and it’s been one of the most beautiful processes of my life.”

Jenkins has been a touring artist since she was 15 years old. The Texas-born, Carolina-raised artist chose a life that would fit perfectly in the songs she writes: across countless smoky bars, fake IDs, and endless miles on the road, music has been her one constant companion. Named an “Artist to Watch” by the New York Times, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Pandora, and many more, she was also chosen as a member of the “Class of 2019” by influential radio DJ Bobby Bones, and made her TODAY Show debut as Elvis Duran’s Artist of the Month. An accomplished actress and filmmaker, Lauren wrote, produced, and starred in an original short film titled Running Out of Road that accompanied the release of her critically-acclaimed debut album, NO SAINT, on Big Machine Records. In May of 2020, she released “Ain’t That Hard,” her first song as a fully independent artist.

Indianapolis FedEx Mass Shooting

EIGHT KILLED IN INDIANAPOLIS FEDEX FACILITY SHOOTING

What we know so far

  • Brandon Hole, the shooting suspect, opened fire outside and inside of a FedEx facility in Indianapolis, Indiana on Thursday evening.
  • Eight people were shot and killed, while several others were wounded in addition to the gunman.
  • Police believe the gunman killed himself as officers encountered him.
  • The motive for the shooting known at this time.

Law enforcement were notified of a mass casualty situation at the Indianapolis FedEx location late Thursday evening. Timothy Boillat, a FedEx employee, was inside of the building when the gunshots began, according to CNN. He was on break when he heard “two loud metal clangs,” not realizing that it was gun shots. Boillat said his friend saw someone grabbing a gun out of the trunk of their car. It was at that moment that Boillat saw a body on the ground. Levi Miller was interviewed this morning by the Today Show and stated “I saw a man, a hooded figure. The man did have an AR in his hand, and he started shouting and then he started firing. I thought he saw me, so I immediately ducked for cover.”

Deputy Chief of Criminal Investigations for Indianapolis Police, Craig McCartt, stated that four of the victims were found inside of the FedEx facility and four were found outside. The suspect was found deceased, in addition to eight other people. The Indianapolis Police Department said they have an idea of who the suspect was, however, have not formally identified him. The Department believes that the shooter was using a rifle, but they do not yet have any specifics on the weapon. The police are being assisted by the FBI in searching the suspect’s house. Special agent Paul Keenan is in charge.

During a news conference McCartt stated, “This suspect came to the facility. He got out of his car and pretty quickly started some random shooting outside the facility. There was no confrontation with anyone. That began in the parking lot and then he did go into the building.”

Alfarena McGinty, the Chief Deputy Coroner at the Marion County Coroner’s Office, said that the Department is conducting an investigation, but cannot yet enter the crime scene to confirm the victims’ identity until all evidence has been collected. “We are still a number of hours out before we are able to go on to the scene to conduct our investigation, and then after that, we’ll work with the families. Following that process, what we have to do is we will perform our examinations,” she said, adding that extra staff will be called in to complete those examinations in the next 48 to 72 hours, reports CNN.

According to data from the Gun Violence Archive, there have been at least 147 mass shootings incidents in 2021 in the United States. The Gun Violence Archive is an online archive of gun violence incidents collected from various law enforcement, media, government and commercial sources daily in order to provide near-real time data about the results of gun violence. GVA is a non-profit corporation based out of Washington DC, as stated on their website.

UPDATE:

Indianapolis Police has released the names of the deceased victims from Thursday night’s shooting. 

The victims are: 

  • 32-year-old Matthew R Alexander 
  • 19-year-old Samaria Blackwell
  • 66-year-old Amarjeet Johal
  • 64-year-old Jaswinder Kaur
  • 68-year-old Jaswinder Singh
  • 48-year-old Amarjit Sekhon
  • 19-year-old Karlie Smith
  • 74-year-old John Weisert

A statement by IMPD says the next of kin has been notified by the Marion County Coroner’s Office.

The cause of death will be determined after autopsies are complete, according to the statement. 

IMPD said the names of those injured are not being released. 

Brittany Howard × Jimmy Kimmel

“History Repeats,” From Howard’s Debut Solo Album, Jaime, Nominated For Two GRAMMY Awards – Best Rock Performance And Best Rock Song

Howard Will Also Perform On “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah”

On December 4 And “TODAY Show” On December 5

Brittany Howard will celebrate her two new GRAMMY nominations with a trio of television performances. Tune in tonight to see her perform on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” She’ll visit “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” on Wednesday, December 4. On Thursday, December 5, Howard will perform on “TODAY Show” in the 8:00 AM hour and also during “3rd Hour TODAY.”

“History Repeats” – from her debut solo album, Jaime – has been nominated in two GRAMMY categories: Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song, bringing her total career nominations to 11. She has won four GRAMMY Awards in her role as lead vocalist/guitarist for the chart-topping band Alabama Shakes. View Howard performing “History Repeats” on “Later…With Jools Holland” HERE.

The New York Times observed, “‘History Repeats,’ the densely layered funk song that opens the album, links personal neuroses – recurring kinds of self-destructive relationships – and societal patterns.” NPR praised the track as “a swirling, punch-drunk and funk rumination on the ways repeated mistakes can hold us back.” Afropunk hailed it as “an instant anthem….and a metaphor for the human condition.”

Jaime, available HERE, was awarded four stars by Rolling Stone, MOJO and Q. “Stay High,” the album’s first single, spent three weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart. Views of the official video, which stars Terry Crews (“Everybody Hates Chris,” The Expendables films, Deadpool 2), have surpassed seven million.

Howard –who has performed everywhere from the Obama White House to the main stage at Lollapalooza, where she sang with Paul McCartney at his invitation – wrapped up her North American headline tour last week with performances at The Fillmore in San Francisco and the Fox Theater in Oakland. She spoke with the San Francisco Examiner about the genesis of Jaime in this feature. Her confirmed 2020 dates include a trio of UK shows and performances at the Highwater and Shaky Knees festivals. Additional dates will be announced soon.

Sheppard’s ‘On My Way’

Multi-platinum selling recording artist Sheppard is back with a brand-new single “On My Way” – available now via your preferred music platform! Cowritten by John Hume (co-writes with Dean Lewis, Sofi Tukker), the anthemic, uplifting song, which was originally penned as a stand-alone single, earned the band a nod to participate in the show which will select Australia’s next representative at Eurovision 2019! “On My Way” is the ultimate love song as singer George Sheppard explains:

“This song is about someone craving the uncontrollable heat and passion they feel when they are with the one they love. It’s about excitedly making their way to reunite with their lover, wherever that may be in the world.”

“On My Way” is the first new music since last summer’s sophomore effort Watching the Sky (June 8, 2018 via Empire of Song/Decca Records/Republic Records) which rocketed to the top of the charts globally, earning them their first #1 on the ARIA Album Chart in their home country of Australia and hitting Top 10 on the US iTunes Pop Charts. Watching the Sky spawned global smash “Coming Home,” which climbed to #1 on the AIRcharts and went double platinum in Australia while taking over radio charts across Europe and Mexico. The song debuted on US television on the TODAY Show and was featured in American Ninja WarriorAmerican Idol, Champions, and Lionsgate’s hit feature length animated film Early Man.

The band exploded onto the global stage with the massive success of 2015’s “Geronimo” – the RIAA Certified Double Platinum lead single from the band’s debut album Bombs Away. The song rose all the way to #53 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, Top 5 at AAA and landed them on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Today Show, and The Talk. Sheppard have also become mainstays on the festival circuit across the globe, performing at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Summer Sonic, Rock in Rio, Billboard’s Hot 100 Festival, and many more to date.

Sheppard will perform “On My Way” at Eurovision – Australia Decides alongside Australia’s top talents to battle it out to become Australia’s 2019 Eurovision entry on February 9th as they continue their run as Australia’s royal family of pop.

ALESSIA CARA PERFORMS AT THE EMA’s

Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Alessia Cara has once again donned the symbolic, oversized suit she wore in the “Growing Pains” video, the “Trust My Lonely” video, as well as recent appearances on FallonColbert, and the Today Show for her performances at Austin City Limits and the MTV EMA Awards – where she took home the award for Best World Stage. Alessia told the Today crew: “It’s an artistic way of symbolizing the idea of growing up. Sometimes you kind of feel like you’re drowning and you feel like you’re not ready for the roles life throws at you so this was my way of symbolizing it in an artistic way.” Alessia took to her Twitter account to defend her choices for wearing the oversized suit after some online criticism and received support from Kehlani and Ariana Grande.

Sabrina Carpenter Album “Singular: Act I”

Two weeks ahead of its release, singer/songwriter and actress Sabrina Carpenter has revealed additional details surrounding her third studio album Singular: Act I, due out November 9 on Hollywood Records, including the record’s artwork and track listing. Singular: Act I is available now for digital pre-order and pre-save (HERE) and will include an instant download of the song “Paris.” The album will be available on CD exclusively at Target.

Carpenter first revealed the album’s release date during a dramatic performance of the record’s lead single “Almost Love” on The Late Late Show with James Corden earlier this month. The theatrical performance began as a stark affair, with Carpenter clad in all-white among Roman columns and statues. By the end of the song, the set was splattered with neon paint from disembodied hands – its final mark provided by Carpenter herself as she scrawled “November 9” on the walls.

To celebrate the release of Singular: Act I, Sabrina will perform the album’s second single, “Sue Me” on Live with Kelly and Ryan and the TODAY Show on November 9.

Carpenter is on the edge of a new beginning with this album, which has been more than two years in the making for the rising pop powerhouse. This marks her third record in a three-year span since her debut album, and she has grown considerably as an artist and writer between each release – something that especially shines through on Singular: Act I.

“I’m beginning in a different place than I was before,” says Carpenter of the record. Carpenter approached Singular: Act I a little bit older and a little bit wiser than she was when she began writing songs for her first album. She opted to push herself out of her comfort zone in order to be heard, flaunting the confidence of someone who has entered young adulthood and found their own voice. That sense of empowerment is weaved throughout Singular: Act I – a set of eight sonic epiphanies (all of which she co-wrote) blending Carpenter’s R&B-style vocals with the pop sensibility she helmed on her sophomore record EVOLution.

Singular: Act I Track Listing:

1. Almost Love

2. Paris

3. Hold Tight (feat. Uhmeer)

4. Sue Me

5. prfct

6. Bad Time

7. Mona Lisa

“Growing Pains” followed “1-800-273-8255” (National Suicide Prevention Lifeline), Alessia’s landmark 5x-platinum collab­o­­­ration with fellow Def Jam artist Logic; and her double-platinum #1 Pop Song collaboration with Zedd.
