Cardi B. Album Artist Launches Brand Calling Out Virgil Abloh’s Silence on Diversity

Nicky Chulo is a graphic designer who has helped create album covers for household names including Cardi B. However, he views his art as more than just work; it’s a vessel he uses to engage with contemporaries and create dialogue through creativity. For instance, his opinion about the lack of inclusion in the fashion industry and criticism about Virgil Abloh inspired him to create his own fashion brand.

As creative director at Louis Vuitton, Abloh has a high-ranking position in fashion. Last month, Abloh shared a behind-the-scenes look at a party for his brand Off-White. The footage sparked a firestorm of backlash on social media from critics who called the Off-White team too white and noted that there appeared to be no black art directors for a brand owned by a black man.

Chulo created his own apparel line called “Off-Black” in what he says is to call Abloh to task while using the proceeds to empower black creatives.

In an interview with BLACK ENTERPRISE, Chulo explained how art can be a conduit for purposeful dialogue.

Nicky Chulo

Nicky Chulo

 

BLACK ENTERPRISE: Describe your background as a designer and your progression into your current role.
Nicky Chulo: I’m currently an art director at Atlantic Records with a background in graphic design and typography. I’ve been a graphic designer for almost 10 years now and it’s been a very wild ride. To keep it short, I came up in Northern Virginia, went to college in Atlanta (SCAD), and jumped into the corporate side of my career in New York circa 2013.

 

What are some of your other most impactful projects to date?
 
I have two. I would have to say hands down Trap Karaoke is the most impactful project I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of. Trap Karaoke is a very black, very safe, and very wholesome place where everyone can have a good time. A quick sum up for those who don’t know: Trap Karaoke is an event where you can sign up to perform your favorite song on stage in front of a crowd whose sole purpose is to sing along with and encourage you. On a few occasions, we’ve had people performing their song and the musician who created said song would join them on stage and perform. It’s a really beautiful thing.

 

The second most impactful project to me was working with Sylvan LaCue on his Apologies In Advance album. I had the pleasure of working with Sylvan and his team to develop the concept and visuals. Apologies In Advance is about growth, acceptance, how to deal with hardships, and the list goes on. It’s about healing and becoming the best person you can be and as a millennial, I can say it’s a priceless project. Jay Z gives us free game in the form of witty classy lyricism and Sylvan gives us free band-aids in the form of honest, vulnerable words.

 

Off-White

Nicky Chulo’s Off-Black apparel line

 

What inspired you to create your latest t-shirt design “Off-Black”?
What inspired Off-Black is the lack of diversity on Virgil’s “Off-White” team. Even if he’s just the “face” of the brand I believe he has a responsibility to speak up on behalf of diversity. I’m not discrediting the talent at Off-White, but knowing how hard I worked, especially as a designer of color, to get to where I am, it hurt a bit. Blood, sweat, tears, relationships, lack of sleep, and having to be twice if not three times as good to be seen. Having to be ready for anything at all times. We need more people of color in the room. We need more people of color inside the room.

 

 What type of dialogue are you looking to create with the “Off-Black” merchandise?

I remember Virgil once tweeted “Design is the freshest scam” and I thought that was a very very cornball tweet. Design is purposeful always.

Why were you initially hesitant to release the apparel? 

I was definitely hesitant at first. I knew if I was going to do this I had to be all in. In the end, I found out that Virgil was blocking people who reached out to him in his Instagram messages with the #Diversity hashtag, which I think is dismissive and irresponsible. You have a platform and we want answers to a particular question, why not give them to us? Right or wrong, why not be transparent? Lastly, my girl was like “Baby, you know you want to do this” and I was like “Angel, you are 100% right,” and I got busy.

 

How has the culture rallied behind your message?
Man. I mean the culture pulled up with open arms, dollars, and megaphones.

 

What will you do with the proceeds? 
 
One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to The Whlgns for Leaders Amongst Leaders. I think the conversation we’ve started is equally, if not more important, than the money we’re raising. I hope to inspire black creatives with this Hail Mary of a project. I’m grateful I was in a position to take this on.

Seth Meyers Sounds Off on Sarah Huckabee Sanders for Calling Congress Dumb: ‘She’s Trolling Us’

NBC

When President Trump isn’t refusing to release his tax returns because of “a fake audit that definitely does not exist,” as Seth Meyers put it Monday night, he has started to suggest that they will simply be too complicated for members of Congress to comprehend.

Now, the Late Night host added, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has taken that argument “one step further,” telling Fox News host Chris Wallace over the weekend that “this group of congressmen and women” are not “smart enough to look through the thousands of pages that I would assume that President Trump’s taxes will be.”

“OK, now this is what she wants. She’s trolling us,” Meyers said. “She wants us to get all mad and riled up and point out all the ways that Trump is actually the idiot, because that’s their only move, to just take whatever we say about Trump and turn it back on us. And we’re just too dignified for that, we will not stoop to her level, and I’m just kidding, here’s a bunch of dumb shit the president has said and done.”

Why You Can’t Blame the Lakers’ Magic Johnson for Calling it Quits

Magic Johnson quit his gig as president of basketball operations for the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday evening, in unforgettable fashion. Before LA’s last game of its dismal regular season (the team finished 37-45), Johnson told the world of his decision before telling the woman who hired him in the first place: Lakers owner Jeanie Buss. He was afraid Buss was going to talk him out of it.

Next time, just try a text?

Give Johnson some credit, however, for not mincing words as to why he was leaving. “I got a great life. Damn, I got a great life outside of this,” he told the assembled reporters at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. “What the F … what am I doing? I got a beautiful life. I’m going back to that beautiful life. I’m looking forward to it.”

Can you blame Magic Johnson for wanting to return to being Magic Johnson for a living? Why make tough calls about the future of Luke Walton, LA’s embattled coach, when you can instead enjoy walking into any room in America, and feeling the love? The Magic job involves smiles and charm and stories and laughter. The Lakers job involves salary cap stress. Now Johnson can say: take your luxury tax — and Lavar Ball while you’re at it — and shove it.

Magic joins a list of Hall of Famers who’ve tried grinding jobs, only to realize the real work stinks. Earlier Tuesday, Magic’s teammate on the 1992 USA Basketball Olympic “Dream Team,” Chris Mullin, also resigned suddenly. After leading St. John’s to the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, the Hall of Fame St. John’s player-turned-coach quit after his fourth season (and his first winning one) at the helm. Mullin cited a “recent personal loss” as factoring into his decision; his older brother died of cancer in March. Another ’92 Dream Teamer, Clyde Drexler, quit as coach of his alma mater, the University of Houston, in 2000 after two seasons and a 19-37 record. Drexler cited a desire to spend more time with his family, and acknowledged he almost quit immediately upon starting the job.

“Because of the time that it takes in the coaching profession, in the first week I was thinking, ‘Boy, this is going to be a little bit more difficult than I thought,’” Drexler said back then.

Yes, another Dream Teamer, Larry Bird, enjoyed more success as a coach. He led the Indiana Pacers to the NBA finals in 2000, and won NBA Coach of the Year in his first season, in 1998. Bird walked away after Indiana’s Finals appearance, maintaining that NBA coaches had a three-year shelf life. That’s easy to say when you’re Larry Bird, and can ditch a job you don’t need. The Pacers haven’t returned to the Finals since Bird flew the coop.

Meanwhile, Michael Jordan’s commitment to building the Charlotte Hornets, the franchise he’s owned since 2010, into a winner has repeatedly come into question. Since Jordan bought the team, the Hornets (or Bobcats, the franchise nickname through 2014) have reached the playoffs three times, only to lose in the first round in each appearance.

This isn’t to say beware the Dream Team. Legends have flamed out in other sports too. The Great One, Wayne Gretzky, coached the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes for four seasons from 2005-2009; he finished with a not-so-great record of 143-161 before stepping down. Patrick Roy, the legendary goaltender who won four Stanley Cups during his career — two with the Montreal Canadiens, two with the Colorado Avalanche — coached the Avs for three seasons before resigning in 2016. He made the playoffs just once, losing in the first round. Ted Williams, one of baseball’s greatest hitters of all time, was fired after going 54-100 for the 1972 Texas Rangers. He finished his managerial career 273-364.

People like Patrick Ewing, who took over as coach at his alma mater Georgetown in 2017, and Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway, who just finished his first season as coach of alma mater Memphis, may enjoy different results than the other stars. (In three combined seasons so far, Hardaway and Ewing have finished .500 or better each year, but made zero NCAA tournament appearances). And Bill Russell did win back-to-back titles, in 1968 and 1969, as player-coach of the Boston Celtics. Though without Russell the player in the lineup, Russell the coach finished under .500 in four seasons leading the Seattle Sonics in the 1970s, and a dismal 17-41 as coach of the Sacramento Kings for part of the 1987-88 season.

Perhaps these big-name players should take a cue from golf hero Arnold Palmer. People used to say that no one loved being Arnold Palmer more than Arnold Palmer. With his playing days behind him, he didn’t spend his time working as a coach or tour commissioner or anything like that. Instead, he’d order himself to drink at the Masters. In other words, he lived like a legend.

Stevie Nicks and Janet Jackson Enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Calling for More Women Inductees

(NEW YORK) — Stevie Nicks, who became the first woman inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Janet Jackson, the latest member of the Jackson clan to enter the hall, called for other women to join them in music immortality on a night they were honored with five all-male British bands.

Jackson issued her challenge just before leaving the stage of Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” she said, “in 2020, induct more women.”

Neither Jackson or Nicks were around at the end of the evening when another Brit, Ian Hunter, led an all-star jam at the end to “All the Young Dudes.” The Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs was the only woman onstage.

During the five-hour ceremony, Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music thanked multiple bass players and album cover designers, the Cure’s Robert Smith proudly wore his mascara and red lipstick a month shy of his 60th birthday and two of Radiohead’s five members showed up for trophies.

During Def Leppard’s induction, Rick Allen was moved to tears by the audience’s standing ovation when singer Joe Elliott recalled the drummer’s perseverance following a 1985 accident that cost him an arm.

Jackson followed her brothers Michael and the Jackson 5 as inductees. She said she wanted to go to college and become a lawyer growing up, but her late father Joe had other ideas for her.

“As the youngest in my family, I was determined to make it on my own,” she said. “I was determined to stand on my own two feet. But never in a million years did I expect to follow in their footsteps.”

She encouraged Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, producers of her breakthrough “Control” album and most of her vast catalog, to stand in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center for recognition, as well as booster Questlove. She thanked Dick Clark of “American Bandstand” and Don Cornelius of “Soul Train,” along with her choreographers including Paula Abdul.

There was some potential for awkward vibes Friday, since the event was being filmed to air on HBO on April 27. HBO angered the Jackson family this winter for showing the documentary “Leaving Neverland,” about two men who alleged Michael Jackson abused them when they were boys. Jackson never mentioned Michael specifically in her remarks but thanked her brothers, and he was shown on screen with the rest of the family.

Jackson was inducted by an enthusiastic Janelle Monae, whose black hat and black leather recalled some of her hero’s past stage looks. She said Jackson had been her phone’s screen-saver for years as a reminder to be focused and fearless in how she approached art.

Nicks was the night’s first induction. She is already a member of the hall as a member of Fleetwood Mac, but only the first woman to join 22 men — including all four Beatles members — to have been honored twice by the rock hall for the different stages of their career.

Nicks offered women a blueprint for success, telling them her trepidation in first recording a solo album while a member of Fleetwood Mac and encouraging others to match her feat.

“I know there is somebody out there who will be able to do it,” she said, promising to talk often of how she built her solo career. “What I am doing is opening up the door for other women.”

During her four-song set, she brought onstage a cape she bought in 1983 to prove to her “very frugal” late mother that it was still in good shape, and worth its $ 3,000 price tag. Don Henley joined her to sing “Leather and Lace,” while Harry Styles filled in for the late Tom Petty on “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.”

David Byrne inducted Radiohead, noting he was flattered the band named itself after one of his songs. He said their album “Kid A” was the one that really hooked him, and he was impressed Radiohead could be experimental in both their music and how they conduct business.

“They’re creative and smart in both areas, which was kind of a rare combination for artists, not just now but anytime,” he said.

With only drummer Philip Selway and guitarist Ed O’Brien on hand, Radiohead didn’t perform; there was a question of whether any of them would show up given the group’s past ambivalence about the hall. But both men spoke highly of the honor.

“This is such a beautifully surreal evening for us,” said O’Brien. “It’s a big (expletive) deal and it feels like it. … I wish the others could be here because they would be feeling it.”

The Cure’s Smith has been a constant in a band of shifting personnel, and he stood onstage for induction Friday with 11 past and current members. Despite their goth look, the Cure has a legacy of pop hits, and performed three of them at Barclays, “I Will Always Love You,” ”Just Like Heaven” and “Boys Don’t Cry.”

Visibly nervous, Smith called his induction a “very nice surprise” and shyly acknowledged the crowd’s cheers.

“It’s been a fantastic thing, it really has,” he said. “We love you, too.”

His inductee, Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, recalled ridiculing the rock hall in past years because he couldn’t believe the Cure wasn’t in. When he got the call that the band was in, he said “I was never so happy eating my words as I was that day.”

Def Leppard sold tons of records, back when musicians used to do that, with a heavy metal sound sheened to pop perfection on songs like “Photograph” and “Pour Some Sugar on Me.” They performed them in a set that climaxed the annual ceremony.

Singer Joe Elliott stressed the band’s working-class roots, thanking his parents and recalling how his father gave them 150 pounds to make their first recording in 1978.

Besides Allen’s accident, the band survived the 1991 death of guitarist Steve Clark. Elliott said there always seemed to be a looming sense of tragedy around the corner for the band, but “we wouldn’t let it in.”

“If alcoholism, car crashes and cancer couldn’t kill us, the ’90s had no (expletive) chance,” said Elliott, referring to his band mates as the closest thing to brothers that an only child could have.

Roxy Music, led by the stylish Ferry, performed a five-song set that included hits “Love is the Drug,” ”More Than This” and “Avalon.” (Brian Eno didn’t show for the event).

Simon LeBon and John Taylor of Duran Duran inducted them, with Taylor saying that hearing Roxy Music in concert at age 14 showed him what he wanted to do with his life.

“Without Roxy Music, there really would be no Duran Duran,” he said.

The soft-spoken Ferry thanked everyone from a succession of bass players to album cover designers. “We’d like to thank everyone for this unexpected honor,” he said.

The Zombies, from rock ‘n’ roll’s original British invasion, were the veterans of the night. They made it despite being passed over in the past, but were gracious in their thanks of the rock hall. They performed hits “Time of the Season,” ”Tell Her No” and “She’s Not There.”

Zombies lead singer Rod Argent noted that the group had been eligible for the hall for 30 years but the honor had eluded them.

“To have finally passed the winning post this time — fantastic!”

Tom Sandoval Was ‘Pretty Depressed’ After Calling Katie Maloney a ‘Bully’

Tom Sandoval isn’t afraid to admit that he had regrets the morning after he called his Vanderpump Rules costar Katie Maloney a “bully.”

“The next day I woke up I was pretty depressed about that, obviously I love Katie,” the 35-year-old Bravo star told Us Weekly exclusively. “I think that’s one thing about our show … Some people say the opposite of love is hate, that’s not true. I feel like it’s indifference and we all really care about each other and it emotionally charges things.”

While the impassioned exchange between Sandoval and Maloney, 32, has yet to air on the reality series, fans got a glimpse of the argument, in which the TomTom owner called the SUR waitress a “bully” for getting James Kennedy fired, in the midseason trailer.

“I didn’t get him fired, he got himself fired!” Maloney shouted at Sandoval in the clip.

The bartender then clapped back with an imitation of Maloney: “I can say whatever the f—k I want, to anybody. But if somebody calls me fat, I’m getting their ass fired.”

Maloney and Kennedy went at it earlier in the season after the DJ told her to “lose some f—king weight” during the gay pride event at SUR. After the Maloney gave Lisa Vanderpump an ultimatum, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star let Kennedy go from the restaurant.

As for what motivated Sandoval’s insult in the upcoming episode, he simply teased, “You’ll just have to see how that all plays out.”

Calling Out the Caregiving Crisis in the U.S.

According to a recent Harvard Business School study, almost three-quarters of U.S. workers face some kind of caregiving responsibility—and of them, 32 percent left a job because they couldn’t balance work and family duties and more than 80 percent said their responsibilities at home kept them from doing their best at work.

Those are staggering figures—and ones that I’m all too aware of through my work with the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation.

(U.S. Army photo)

I’ve spent over 10 years working in philanthropy, as an executive director for a non-profit and as a critical care nurse. I’ve witnessed firsthand the joys and trials of family caregivers, and in my current position, I support the Foundation’s investments in caregiving, one of the fundamental tenets of our work.

That HBS study zeroed in on one of the biggest obstacles facing caregivers: so much of their work goes on behind the scenes, and even friends or employers may be unaware of their caregiving obligations. While 80 percent of workers said their productivity had been affected by their caregiving responsibilities, just 24 percent of employers said caregiving was affecting the performance of their employees.

That gap is likely taking shape because many employees hide the burden of caregiving responsibilities. They struggle to balance the unexpected and recurring care obligations that require mental, physical and financial resources to address. This sets off a tough cycle: Caregivers struggle to balance their work and family responsibilities, they grow overstressed and their performance at work suffers. Some may even leave the workforce entirely, leaving employers to cover another major cost in the loss of talented, trained employees.

The current caregiving landscape is particularly hard on women, who make up 60 percent of caregivers in the U.S. Women have long carried the responsibility of caring for their families and loved ones, which places a heavy burden on their economic security—they’re more likely to take leave, but tend to have lower retirement savings, in part due to the cumulative impacts of the wage gap over time.

There are many complicated challenges facing caregivers across the country, not the least of which is articulating what it means to be a caregiver. The spectrum of care, from childcare to eldercare, crosses demographics and takes many forms. Many caregivers do not even identify as such. We’re committed to helping to address this trend by investing in initiatives and programs that will make caregiving a respected, and better supported, role for family members. We want to help to identify and share positive stories of caregivers—and in doing so, elevate the role of “caregiver” as something to be not only understood, but celebrated.

Being a caregiver can also be an isolating experience. Many people feel they’re alone in shouldering the burden, even when it comes to caring for immediate family members. A study from the Practica Group, which reinforced the findings of many national studies, revealed that family caregivers are often unaware of existing resources, or find them too daunting to be useful. That’s why it is critical to build networks of organizations, individuals and volunteers that support family caregivers, in ways they find respectful and easy to access—whether that’s expanding volunteer networks to better serve family caregivers or providing support to existing institutions like local hospitals to offer expert support for family caregivers whose loved ones are grappling with serious medical challenges.

The good news is that there are already promising resources and services available to caregivers: The TimeSlips program provides resources and tools for family members to use storytelling to meaningful engage with relatives who have dementia; BonaResonds, based in rural Allegheny County, New York, builds wheelchair ramps for people who would otherwise be unable to leave their homes. But further investment and resources are needed. We’re focusing on supporting existing programs for caregivers to maximize their reach and effectiveness—providing non-profits with marketing and communication support to collect data and information about the caregivers they serve, for example, in order to understand the market for their programs and services.

There’s no denying that we’re facing a crisis around caregiving in the United States, and that it is only going to worsen. As the U.S. population continues to age, more and more Americans will assume caregiving responsibilities. It is imperative that we properly invest in educating, supporting and championing caregivers across the country, and we all have a role to play. It is time for employers, politicians, and business owners alike to recognize the work of caregivers and increase awareness around the issue. 

Caregivers deserve to have access to resources and support from their employers. They deserve to have their work acknowledged—particularly women caregivers, whose economic security is inextricably linked to access to family friendly policies and resources.

Amber Slichta is the Vice President of Programs for the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation.

Home Is Calling for Young Chinese Designers

SHANGHAI — As Champagne glasses clinked and heads of industry assembled at The Woolmark Co.’s gala in October to celebrate 50 years of trade with China, six of the country’s most successful designers presented their capsule collections made with Australian merino wool. During the event, the designers were periodically called for press photos, interviews and business introductions, yet between these obligations, they gravitated back to one another, sharing pats on the back, chats and inside jokes.
Perhaps it isn’t surprising that in the emerging pool of contemporary Chinese designers, there is camaraderie and familiarity among the biggest players. The kinship could also be down to the fact that many of them have studied at the same overseas colleges, shared the same manufacturers and suppliers, and worked in the same studios as their careers advanced.
Although many of these successful young Chinese designers studied their craft overseas — this cohort particularly favoring Central Saint Martins in London, many are now returning home to China to set up or promote their labels as the market in their homeland matures.
There is a mix of reasons why this moment in time offers a unique and exciting opportunity for Chinese designers to return home. As the nation’s economy continues

Amy Schumer Announced Her Pregnancy While Calling on People to Vote for a List of Candidates

Amy Schumer announced Monday night that she is pregnant with her first baby.

The comedian teased the news by posting an image of her and her husband’s Chris Fisher faces photoshopped onto the bodies of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who just announced their own pregnancy last week.

In the caption, Schumer linked to the profile of political reporter Jessica Yellin, and promised “exciting news” ahead. In a video about the upcoming midterm elections in November, Yellin posted a list of Schumer’s 20 recommendations for candidates. The list ended with the words: “I’m pregnant – Amy Schumer”.

 

Schumer, who is well-known for her outspoken political activism, was arrested while protesting Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court earlier this month.

The Trainwreck actress is a staunch advocate for women’s rights and has teamed up with her cousin, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, to push for stricter gun-control laws.
