Cat Power: 'I didn’t know I loved myself when I was younger'

Cat Power, whose real name is meets me in the lobby of her London hotel, and things do not go as expected. First, she is warm and inviting, when her smoky, melancholy records had led me to expect someone much more remote. And second, she is immediately in full swing with her impersonation of my English accent. “Life in the old dog yet, eh!” she says, after we decide to go to her room to avoid the noise and the smoking rules. “Good old Blighty!” she adds, as we get into the lift. I didn’t see this coming – not...

What to expect from President Trump's week at the UN General Assembly

It was at last year’s United Nations General Assembly that President Donald Trump launched a verbal assault on North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, chiding him as a "Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself,” and made a dramatic debut with blunt talk about putting “America first” over multilateral cooperation. But when he attends this year’s United Nations General Assembly this week -- in what will be his second time attending the gathering of heads of state as president -- the president returns as a known quantity. “Last year, there was a tremendous amount of uncertainty about what...

The best magazine covers ever?

As a teenager in 1960s Belfast, I fell in love with magazines. They introduced me to a community beyond family and school. They were seductive and aspirational. I remember seeing for the first time in a Belfast boutique in 1968 while wondering if I could afford a Ben Sherman shirt. It was a revelation, voicing a cultural shift that I only hazily understood but knew I wanted to be part of. I bought the magazine, not the shirt. Little did I know, its co-founder, , would be my boss 24 years later. Read more Like any business, a magazine’s first...

Michael Moore takes on Trump via – Flint, Michigan

‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ incendiary film ‘I hope he never does one on me,’ Donald Trump once said of Michael Moore. It was in 1998, on Roseanne Barr’s syndicated talk show. Trump complimented Moore’s “Roger & Me”, a takedown of General Motors and its then-CEO, Roger Smith. “It’s terrific,” he said, then added he hoped never to be a similar target. Everybody laughed. Well, 20 years later, Moore has done that Trump film, and he includes that strange little scene. Only Moore isn’t laughing much now, and the current president probably isn’t either – especially if he’s heard about the Adolf Hitler...

Saudi Arabia seeks stable, not soaring, oil prices

RIYADH: Oil prices rose this week on continuing market tightness. With the price rise, some Saudi-bashing has begun. Bloomberg reported that increasing prices were due to Saudi Arabia’s comfort with Brent crude above $80 per barrel. Such “analysis” is hogwash. Due to market tightness, Brent rose to nearly $80 per barrel but deteriorated to $78.80 on Friday. WTI rose above $70 per barrel for the first time in three months and settled at $70.78 per barrel by the week closing.The average price for Brent crude per barrel over the past five months has been between $72.11 and $76.98. As may...
