Beyond fabulous: how camp created the Met Gala’s craziest red carpet ever

From Cardi Bs fabulous feathers to Katy Perrys light-up chandelier, the Met Gala more than lived up to this years camp theme. But, for all the silliness, it had a serious point to make Heads up: Jared Leto. Photograph: Raymond Hall/GC Images The bar for party dressing this summer just got pretty high. Billy Porter arrived at the Met Gala in a catsuit with gold wings, reclining on a chaise longue carried by six shirtless men part Icarus, part Cher-by-Bob-Mackie, part Liz Taylor in Cleopatra. Lady Gaga made not one entrance, but four, dressed like a Russian doll in three ballgowns on top of each other for a red-carpet striptease of fuschia and black taffeta. Jared Leto accessorised his look …

Hamas Started a War Over the Song Contest That Gave Us ABBA: Eurovision

ASHKELON, IsraelThree out of the four Israelis killed during the weekend war between Israel and Hamas were hit by rockets that landed in this beach town, which has the sixth-largest population in Israel. It was the heaviest bombardment from Gaza since the 2014 war, with almost 700 rockets launched into Israel in 48 hours, leading to a strange cacophony: the silence of the empty city, the rustle of the breeze coming in from the Mediterranean, the wail of sirens, the tremble and roar of explosions, the whistle of missiles flying overhead and the non-stop muffled booms of Israels internationally brokered ceasefire agreement that neither side acknowledges. About 23 Gazans were killed by Israeli bombardments, which followed an incident Friday when, …

Dutch Bros Coffee hopes to raise $1.5 million for ALS research on Drink One for Dane Day.

When Dutch Bros. Coffee founder Dane Boersma got terribly sick, the family thought he had Lyme disease. It turned out to be ALS. At the time of his dad’s diagnosis, Brant Boersma knew almost nothing about ALS. All he really knew was that Lou Gehrig had it and was forced to retire from baseball because of it. “Now I know more than I wanted to,” says Boersma. “This disease is brutal. It’s evil. To put it simply, you slowly become a prisoner to your body. In my Dad’s case it was slow moving, but when it’s so intimate to your life, time doesn’t matter anymore.” ALS is notoriously difficult to diagnose, especially in the early stages, because it mimics many …

May Day celebrated with fire festival

Image copyright Nathan Goodfriend A procession of fire, drums, and otherworldly characters set off from an opening sequence on the National Monument to the lighting of a huge bonfire, watched by an audience of 7,000. The festival tells the story of the transition from winter to summer, which can only happen when the Green Man, an archetypal figure in folklore all over the UK, dies and is reborn again. Beltane traditionally celebrates human ties with the natural world, and some groups highlighted that environmental message. Parts of the May Queen’s dress were made out of recycled materials and visually represented oil spills and deforestation.
