It’s pretty dark. An ominous rallying cry for the citizens of Panem. And Tears for Fears apparently approves. Frontman Curt Smith told MTV Hive, “I think it’s absolutely amazing, but then I love her, I think she’s brilliant…. We love it when other people cover our stuff. Sometimes we steal them and use their version live.” Listen here and tell me what you think.

For anyone who has pulled a muscle or two doing the same old mirror twerk, here is some vintage material to up your game on the dance floor.
Young Mr Bower attends the Mortal Instruments: City of Bones photocall in Madrid, where his hair continues to be more entertaining than the film. It looks like we’re past the Flock of Seagulls stage, and possibly making a quick detour into Martin Fry/Phil Oakley/Howard Jones territory, before hopefully settling into a nice River Phoenix circa Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade ‘do. And that’s definitely a look I can get behind. Rock on, Jamie. (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
Culture Club’s Boy George, Mikey Craig, and Roy Hay (minus Jon Moss, of course), all lookin fab. Posted on Boy’s Facebook page today. (t/y Brett)
Old pal Linda Simpson (or Les Simpson, your call) wrote to me yesterday: “You might be interested in a new photography exhibit that I’ m part of at ClampArt Gallery in Chelsea called ‘New York C. 1985.’ I have about 50 photos included in a slideshow. You can see some here. I was in NYC for practically the entire 1980s, and throughout the decade I randomly took photos for fun with basic point-and-shoot cameras. I was mostly just bouncing around, absorbing and observing the city. The photos are of friends of mine; after-dark events, celebrities that I shot at various encounters, ACT UP protests, Wigstock in Tompkins Square Park, etc (You’ll definitely recognize and remember some of the people and places!). My photo credit in the show is Les Simpson, because I took most of the pix before Linda was born! The exhibit also features work by Larry Clark, Nan Goldin, Amy Arbus and other great photographers — It’s a real honor for me to be included!”
