Friday NEWSRUSH Featuring Grammy Awards Axing ‘Urban’ Term.
It’s CULTED with your Friday NEWSRUSH.
First, following Anna Wintour’s apology regarding Vogue’s racial issues, former Editor-At-Large André Leon Talley has said her apology “came out of the space of white privilege”. Speaking on Samira Nasr’s appointment as Editor-In-Chief of Harper’s Bazaar, Talley said:
“clearly [Wintour’s] statement comes because this girl is going to run competition rings around her. Her power base has been somewhat affected by the competition of this young African American presence who is going to be historically the first Black female editor of a great, great magazine.”
In other news, Leandra Medine Cohen has stepped back from Man Repeller after being called out by readers for a lack of diverse, and “tone deaf” content. The backlash started after she published a piece called “Where We Go From Here: A Message for the MR Community,” after the murder of George Floyd.
Next, The Grammy Awards has dropped the term ‘urban’ from its awards categories to ensure the awards are “inclusive and [reflective of] the current state of the music industry”.
And to round off today, Christopher Raeburn has unveiled a new collection made out of old clothes. The designer is repurposing unused military stock from Europe for a new ‘Raefound’ collection.
That’s all for this morning it’s Sam with CULTED.
