The Morning’s Top 5 Pop Culture Stories


1. This morning Radiohead released a video for “Lotus Flower” — the first single off the band’s latest studio album The King of Limbs — and it’s directed by Garth Jennings.

2. To honor the tenth anniversary of Apple’s first brick-and-mortar location, the company is planning to open its largest location ever — in the balcony of Grand Central. The store will open sometime in the fall, most likely in early September. [via Wired]

3. A comprehensive Cindy Sherman retrospective is in the works at the MoMA, where it is scheduled to open next year; this is really exciting news, as it has been nearly 14 years since the public has had a chance to check out her work all in one place. [via NYT]

4. It looks like Frank Gehry’s Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation project might be back on track. The government is pushing to have last week’s decision made by a Parisian judge to block the construction overturned because it considers the building “a public good.” [via UnBeige]

5. Ryan Murphy is headed back to FX with a new pilot called American Horror Story that could debut as early as this fall. We’re wondering if he still remembers how to do the Nip/Tuck thing after spending so long working on Glee. [via The AV Club]
