Watch: Cody Simpson’s New Single About Breaking Up with Gigi Hadid

We keep trying to push it to the back of our minds, but there was a period last year when Cody Simpson and Gigi Hadid broke up. It was super brief, but that was just enough time for Cody to work on a Gigi-inspired tune, Taylor Swift style.

This week Cody dropped the video for the mid-tempo single “New Problems”. It’s actually quite catchy, mind you, and it’s all about moving on to “new girls, new problems”. We’re not assuming or guessing it’s about Gigi, either. Cody himself has owned up to it himself.

The Australian singer confirmed to MTV News that the track was inspired by “the time that Gigi and I broke up for a couple of months.” You’d think the Sports Illustarted mega-babe would be pretty peeved that boo released a song which takes a dig at her GF skills (count your blessings, mate), but apparently it’s all g-g.

Cody told MTV News Gigi was “OK with it”. Maybe she hadn’t hear the lyrics saying things like “You’d do anything to deflate me” and “I’ll never do that again”? Ah, kids these days.

Vogue Taiwan Continues to Get It All Wrong with Its March Issue (Forum Buzz)

Even the best of the best get it painfully incorrect sometimes, but there’s no excuse for a magazine as rich in fashion photography and history as Vogue to get it this dreadfully wrong. Our forum members have complained from day one about Vogue Taiwan‘s lack of creativity, and the magazine shows no signs of improvement with the release of its March 2015 cover. Vivian Hsu, a Taiwanese singer, actress and model, fronts the title in a rather hideous ensemble that ultimately gives us an eyesore of a cover.

We just know the tone of the thread before the cover is even released, given Vogue Taiwan’s current credibility. Gazebo cried the word, “No!!” inside the thread.

Nevin139 didn’t show much support either and declared the cover “horrible!” 

“Waiting for Vogue Taiwan each month is tense, simply because I know the cover will bring equal amounts of joy and pain each month. This is no exception!” said Fiercification, who agreed that the magazine has become a joke.

“Why don’t they just cancel this edition already?” asked  Gain.

“Actually, a portrait cropping of this shot wouldn’t have been bad, without the hair of course. It’s always the styling that ruins their features,” Benn98 criticized.

Is Vogue Taiwan’s creative team to blame for the dreadful covers? Let us know inside the thread, where you can check out some previews of Vivian Hsu’s feature.

Watch: Justin Bieber Parodies His Own Calvin Klein Commercial

Can’t wait for the Justin Bieber roast on Comedy Central on March 30? Neither can Justin, apparently. The singer, paying homage to the SNL parody of his Calvin Klein ad, decided to do one himself. Yes, a parody of a parody. The video features Justin as himself and comedian Jeffrey Ross in a blond wig as Lara Stone

The video opens with Justin banging away on the drums before slowly revealing Jeffrey as the young singer’s co-star. Jeffrey caresses a visibly repulsed Justin, whispering not-so-sweet nothings into his ear as the fan blows his wig to and fro. And while we understand this is purely for comedy, something about seeing Justin even acting as if he is in distress is just so entertaining. Savor it.

Lara is a professional, but we’ve got to give it up for Jeffrey because he is really working his smize in this clip. And for you Beliebers, yes, Justin is shirtless in this one too, so um, enjoy that, we guess. 

Check out the hilarious spot above.

Farfetch Is Now Worth a Billion Dollars

Farfetch, the online retail destination peddling contemporary and high-end wares from international boutiques, just got a huge cash injection – an $86 million dollar one.

Thanks to the money the e-tailer managed to raise from a smattering of investors including Condé Nast, Farfetch has become a “unicorn,” aka a privately-owned startup worth a billion dollars. Included in the league of unicorns are companies like Air BnB, Uber, Spotify and Pinterest – all of which analysts predict could be poised for public offerings, due to the enormous value of their companies. Farfetch is one of the few fashion-related unicorns out there today.

According to Business of Fashion, Farfetch will be using the money to help grow international versions of its website, as well as new office locations.

Dreams Really Do Come True: Jeremy Meeks Scores a Modeling Contract

It was love at first sight when the world first laid eyes on Jeremy Meeks (aka Prison Bae) in June. Meeks initially garnered Internet-wide attention after the Stockton, California Police Department posted his mugshot to Facebook.

Anyone with two eyes could see: The guy is hot. Like Givenchy campaign hot. As Internet memes of faux campaigns featuring Meeks began to pop up, the question was, how long until he scored the modeling contract he obviously deserves? How long would the world be deprived of that chiseled jawline and ice-blue eyes gazing down at us from billboards?

Folks, the day has finally come. Meeks is still in prison serving time for illegal possession of a firearm, but he’s just been signed to White Cross Management, a Los Angeles and New York City-based firm that manages models, musicians, actors, songwriters, hairstylists and more.

Meeks’ headshot, or rather mugshot because that’s what they used, is already up in the men’s talent section of the website. The 6-foot-1-inch hunk is listed as a model/actor, so we’re guessing that Meeks is also being shopped around for film roles. 

Meeks may be released early from prison in November, so let’s hope he stays on his best behavior because the runway is calling his name, and we are all hoping he will answer.
