- What About Us

The Saturdays - What About Us (Remix Lyric Video)

what about us doing what we did and not expecting to get caught?
what about the nights we started making love but in the end we just fought?
what about the times i asked too much of you
it seems as if they leave everything up to me
is that the case? is it true?
am i all on my own now?
even though i'm supposed to be with you?
it's time that everything around us
comes crumbling down...
we can't continue doing all the shit we used to do
it makes a mockery of the times when i say
"i love you"

it's time to move on from doing things 
as we always do.
there's signs out there
yet we neglect them and turn away.
but from the warnings i've  detected
there's no more time,
it's gone way beyond decay.


Outback with…Joe Oppedisano

Our first interview for 2013 comes from from one of the most infamous photographers who has taken some of the hottest images known to mankind. Joe Oppedisano started off in fashion but is perhaps best known for his images of gay stars from Erik Rhodes and Buck Angel to shooting Channing Tatum before he was People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive.


What made you want to get into photography?

I had no interest in it. I was a fashion editor/stylist, I was working with Vogue, L’Uomo Vogue, Ricky Martin, whatever, lol. I was so consumed doing that, I didn’t realize I was working with legends, being taught what a real master is like to work with, what supermodels are really like out of make-up and how to deal with people who the world considered fabulous.
But it was really a shoot with Arthur Elgort for L’Uomo Vogue, a denim/fall story, and I suggested we recreate Tom of Finland drawings with Abercrombie & Fitch boys. He said ‘No’, well, I think he laughed and told me I was crazy. It made me want to shoot it even more, so I bought a camera and taught myself how to shoot. Then a year later, I shot that very story…
