Alex Pall on Closer, Fans, and Halsey

In an interview with Mathias Rosenzweig, DJs Alex Pall and Andrew Taggert of the band Chainsmokers give some perspective on the direction of the band.

Chainsmokers is constantly looking for ways to bring something new to the fans around the world. Pall credits the singing element incorporated in “Closer” with forcing the band to up the level of their stage performances. The duo are planning festivals as things continue to move forward and have already sold out their first one’s tickets several months in advance.

Already the band performs their songs live, however, they are still pushing the boundaries of their performances any way they can. Pall states that the worst thing that an artist can do is become complacent. He feels that constant progress, change, and creativity are the keys to staying at the top of the game.

Working with Halsey on the song “Closer” was an incredible experience, says Pall. He listed her as the top artist he wanted to work with. He feels that Halsey is unapologetically unique and those are the kinds of artists Chainsmokers want to work with. He also said that working with Halsey, along with having Taggert’s vocals on the song, is taking a big step in a good direction both in terms of the band’s identity and in the overall way the band is handling their music.

Instagram is receiving the credit for helping Pall to understand and connect with the growing audience of the band. Receiving messages from his fans worldwide detailing how different members of their families are affected emotionally by their music really drives him to continue honing his craft. For Pall, nothing is more important than the way music makes you feel.

Even with pressure from both fans and their label to pump out new material, Pall and Taggert want to wait until they have a solid, cohesive, album before they release something new. With their hands deep in the process of the songwriting as well as in producing, Chainsmokers is looking to have their next album be one that is both unified and heartfelt.

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Gives Variety to People of All Sizes

Not everyone gets to experience the great diversity that is in fashion. Fashion is known to leave a few people out. Among the people are men, especially the big and tall, and plus sized women. It is the group of smaller and average sized people that get to enjoy all of the fun that comes with fashion. Fortunately, there are efforts to change that with Fabletics being an all inclusive brand. This means more people get to explore what fashion has to offer them. It’s one thing to have to deal with the shame of being larger, but to also be left out of most of the trends because of size can add another layer of pain and frustration.


Fabletics is doing everything it can to put an end to the days where larger people can do nothing more than to stare at the trendy items because they don’t come in their sizes. Another common occurrence is the fight against envy as these people get to watch other smaller women enjoy these trends. One of the major problems with the old approach to fashion is that a large demographic is alienated. Larger women also have money to spend on fashion.


Fortunately with Fabletics, women have a much better opportunity to take advantage of. People of all sizes get to show off their sense of style with Fabletics. They get to enjoy all of the different cuts, colors and fits. They will also get to be the center of attention because of the styles they have put together. The best part of this is that they get to feel good about themselves and their sense of style.


Larger women have been given long due attention. Now, it is getting to the point where designers for men’s fashion are going to have to step it up because there are new items that are making their appearance. This is especially a good time to be involved in men’s fashion because a lot of changes are occurring in the dynamics as men are taking an interest in what is available for them and some retailers are offering new designs.
