BEST OF THE WEEK FT WTT, THE WEEKND, A$AP ROCKY, KNOTORYUS NEWSPAPER COVER,…


Posted on June 15th, by Dominique in music, style. No Comments

I had fun these past couple of weeks! Between seeing “Watch The Throne” live and some of  my work being plastered on the cover of a national newspaper it’s been quite a ride. I wish I could say that summer vacation is beckoning, but alas… Oh well, I really like what I do, I’m not going to complain and I am planning LGF’s birthday present which involves crossing borders. For the both of us.

If you want to see what else we’ve been up to just peep under the hood and don’t forget to follow us on instagram (@dominique_knotoryus and @stefaan_knotoryus) and Twitter!

Hipster queuing and the power of instagram :

I called The Weeknd the Robin Proper Sheppard of hip hop which LGF thought to be a low blow, but I only said that because comparing him to Morrissey would have put me in the doghouse for a while. Plus I’ve seen my fair share of Sophia concerts and I actually meant it as a compliment. Sort of.

I’m sorry, but I found the whole gig a bit depressing and to have this particular crowd shrieking (and by god, these men were shrie-king) “What you bothering me for/There’s a room full of n***as” wasn’t exactly what I would call a moodbooster either.

A$AP Rocky on the other hand was fun. Jumping around. Hyping the crowd. Covering hits. 30 minutes worth.

Haha, that shit was short. But they kept it going for a little while longer by just getting women on stage and dancing to whatever the DJ played.

I heard several people (mostly girls) complain about the concert talking about how stupid it was of them to bring all the chicks on stage.  I can’t be mad at them though, because if I would’ve been a heterosexual male superstar, that is exactly what I’d done. I like this mob.

For all the above reasons.

Ayo @GwynethPaltrow : Coke and Wh*** B****** for real!

(Please forward any mad tweets to @MrTeriusNash. It’s all his fault. Homie was lit.)

Catching up with my friend Baloji is always a good time.

Nobody can touch HOV. If you were there and you didn’t like it then don’t talk to me. And I LOVED Kanye’s solo moments.

Classic Yeezy!

I got to meet Rohan Marley, son of Bob and Lauryn Hills 4/5 baby daddy. He gave us a set of House of Marley headphones. Update soon here.

LGF went to Paris real quick for the Robert Crumb exhibit.

I styled a shoot for DS Magazine, the style annex of Belgian quality newspaper De Standaard.

On to the next one! (favourite WTT moment BTW)
