Just in case you thought this picture was taken during Duran Duran days - you're wrong. Here's a hot new "trend" straight off the Dior Homme Spring/Summer 2008 Collection in Paris.

It took me a while to embrace the skinny, and I'm substantially excited by the James Brown trousers (see below)

but I don't know about this flabby-baggy-pleated thingy. It just screams VICTTTTTTTIMMMMMM!


If you were ever asked to pray for something that you never wanted to be in your later years.........THIS IS IT!


So I really wanted to hate the new single from Madonna and Trousersnake. I really wanted to sooooooooooo badly unfortunately, my first encounter with the promotional video came at a lighthearted time of a dull evening where I was susceptible to liking anything with a Timbaland bassline.

I was very shocked to discover that 4 minutes with Madonna and Timberlake wasn't at all bad and quite honestly, I was impressed.

The single titled strangely '4 minutes' is lifted from the upcoming Hard Candy album which is quickly generating buzz in Pop land but then again with A-list producers, Pharrell Williams and Timbaland - are we really surprised?

I'm not sure what to think about Madge's sudden embrace of HIP-POP although I suspect this is another calculated transformation from Mrs. Ritchie. It will be interesting to hear what the entire record sounds like but I must say I really tired to dislike the very concept.

In the meantime, this is 4 minutes of pure good pop madg-ness!
