With Paris Fashion Week still in full force, this June has been a busy month. Admittedly, we love the bustle of fashion week in all its glory. But it’s easy to get swept up in the excitement, so GRAZIA Singapore is back with another roundup of the best pop culture moments from the week. From major updates from the girls of Blackpink to the Billkin’s adventures in Milan with Gucci for Milan Fashion Week, here are the must-see moments that you may have missed out on.

Exciting Updates From All The Blackpink Girls

It seems that all the members of Blackpink have been booked and busy lately. Though group activities are still at a standstill, the girls have individually been on many adventures. Jennie just launched her personal Tiktok account, dancing to her song Solo, no less, and appeared in a Beats By Dre campaign for the company’s Solo Buds. Lisa announced that she will finally be releasing new music next week. The teaser for the upcoming track, titled Rockstar, already has us in a chokehold, with the stunning visuals that the megastar dropped last night. Rockstar will be released next Friday, 28 June, at 8AM (Singapore time).

Dressed in an elegant floral gown that is true to Dior’s style, Jisoo was spotted last week at the Miss Dior Exhibition in Tokyo last week. She even snapped a photo with Natalie Portman, the face of the Miss Dior fragrance. On the Rosé front, the singer has just announced that she is the newest face of Puma, joining the brand as its latest global brand ambassador. To commemorate this announcement, the sportswear brand posted its first video with the Blackpink star—safe to say we’re excited for their journey together. This announcement indicates that Rosé has parted with Adidas. All four girls had previously been partnered with Adidas, appearing in countless brand campaigns over the years. 

Billie Eilish’s Album Listening Party In Seoul (With A Very Special Guest!)

If you haven’t heard Billie Eilish’s new album Hit Me Hard And Soft, you need to listen to it now. The singer’s new studio album is a true masterpiece (this author has yet to meet someone who doesn’t appreciate the mastery of each track), and to make things even better, Eilish herself was in Seoul earlier this week to talk about the album. Spotify Korea arranged a listening party with press and fans who got to see the star in person, while she chatted with none other than Jennie Kim—yes, you read that right. Kim took on the role of an interviewer, discussing Eilish’s inspirations and processes before asking fan questions from the event.

Stars At Gucci Men’s Spring/Summer 2025 Show

Gucci recently presented its menswear Spring/Summer 2025 collection for Milan Fashion Week, courtesy of creative director Sabato De Sarno. In attendance, of course, were some major stars who flew in from all over the world. From newly appointed brand ambassador Billkin to Filipino singer and actor James Reid, the front row was bursting with star power. Billkin even unveiled a special behind-the-scenes video with Gucci of his time in Milan. Oh, how we wish we could have been exploring Italy’s fashion capital with Billkin!

Laufey with Yara Shahidi on Cartier’s Women’s Perspectives Podcast

Worlds collided in the latest episode of the Women’s Perspectives podcast by Cartier. Hosted by actress Yara Shahidi, the fourth episode of the podcast featured guest Icelandic-Chinese jazz singer-songwriter Laufey. The duo sit and chat about the singer’s foray into the music industry, finding her personal passions away from her family’s classical music influence and the discovery of her identity during her schooling days in Boston. While only 25 minutes long, the episode dives into deeper topics of representation and community-building, so we recommend that you watch the whole episode.

Previous episodes of the podcast have included guests such as Liya Kebede, Jeremy Pope and Meena Harris. Catch the Laufey episode of Women’s Perspectives below.

The Release Of NewJeans’s Supernatural Music Video

NewJeans just dropped the first part of their music video for the track Supernatural. While the K-pop group has long been recognised for their Y2K style and girl-next-door, bubblegum pop songs, Supernatural promises a slightly different side of NewJeans. Both sonically and visually, the song weaves in influences from citypop and Japanese culture—the girls even sing a couple of lines in Japanese. Maybe this is the start of a new joint genre that marries K-pop and J-pop together.
