Keiynan Lonsdale Performs Hits From Rainbow Boy on Billboard Live at-Home

Next up, Lonsdale switched to white pants and ditched his shirt for “White Noise,” a vintage-soul-inspired number imbued with a positive antiracist message. He was joined by a saxophonist and a tap dancer for the soaring finale. “When we dance, let’s dance together,” he sang.

The mood was even more upbeat on “Chocolate,” a funky psychedelic-soul jam presented with a bright color palette that extended from Lonsdale and company’s clothing to the palm tree set pieces and kaleidoscopic patterns swirling on the screen. “Ain’t life sweet?” Lonsdale sang. “Sweet like chocolate?” As the song came to an end, he reclined on the floor and asked, “Ain’t that the truth?”

As he took a well-deserved breather after 13 nonstop minutes of singing and dancing, Lonsdale thanked Billboard, Live-At-Home sponsor Mercedes-Benz, and Black Youth Project 100, the charity he chose to promote and raise money for with his performance. BYP100 comprises Black

SoulCycle’s At-Home Bike Launches Across The US, With Live Classes And New Variis Fitness App

Starting today, SoulCycle riders in all 50 states can bring the sweaty, high-energy, in-studio experience into their home with the national launch of SoulCycle’s at-home bike. Initially released to a small set of markets in March, this national launch coincides with the co-launch of Variis mobile app. SoulCycle’s live and on-demand classes stream to the at-home bike’s screen via Variis, Equinox Media’s digital fitness media platform. In addition to powering the digital SoulCycle experience, the standalone Variis mobile app also launches today, powering digital access to a variety of Equinox’ other notable digital fitness and mindfulness modalities.

Not surprisingly given the current climate, demand for SoulCycle’s at-home bike skyrocketed after safer-at-home orders were issued earlier this spring, necessitating a change in rollout plans for the greater launch. According to Equinox Media and Variis

Good morning, and welcome to our rolling coverage of the world economy, the financial markets, the eurozone and business.

A swathe of UK companies are reporting today that Covid-19 continues to hurt their businesses, more than six months after the UK first imposed restrictions to battle the pandemic.

High street baker Greggs has warned that staff faced reduced hours, and potentially job cuts, as it tries to cut its employment costs.

Greggs, famous for its steak bakes, sausage rolls and new vegan offerings, reports that like-for-like sales in September are only 76.1% of the 2019 levels (an improvement on a ‘slow’ August).

With the government’s furlough scheme wrapping up in a month (replaced by a less generous wage subsidy package), Greggs says it must make cuts:

Jason Wu Kicks Off NYFW With A Live Rooftop Show Celebrating Escapism

It may be New York Fashion Week, but the lobby of Spring Studios was so empty that you needn’t wear heels to hear the echo of your own footsteps. Gone from the NYFW hub’s grand entrance was the artisan café serving lavender lattes. No pop-up TRESemmé salon for a last-minute blowout, and of course, no VIP lounge. The paparazzi outside outnumbered the handful of guests trickling in, who were greeted by half a dozen security personnel with digital thermometers in hand. Event staff and most attendees were required to present proof of a Covid-19 test taken no more than five days before the show. All guests had to fill out a questionnaire and clear temperature-checks upon entry.  

While the

Lowe’s runway curations now live

CLOSE

Museums and other indoor activities across New York are being allowed to reopen as coronavirus restrictions are cautiously eased. New York City is encouraging New Yorkers and people from the tri-state area to ‘staycation’ and help the city recover. (Aug. 24.)

With many spending more time at home amid COVID-19, home improvement projects have become increasingly popular.

Lowe’s and Home Depot have both seen growth during the pandemic, particularly among consumers tackling do-it-yourself projects. Now, Lowe’s is bringing New York Fashion Week home with curations from fashion designers Jason Wu, Rebecca Minkoff and Christian Siriano.

The North Carolina-based home improvement chain gave USA TODAY an exclusive first look at the “straight-off-the-runway” curations, which were inspired by “each designer’s definition of home” and include chairs, lamps, rugs, tables, pillows and even artificial plants.

The curations, now live at Lowes.com/nyfw, include items previously available at Lowe’s.
