Tonight, Miss Piggy will be on hand at the Brooklyn Museum to accept a prestigious honor from the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art. The Sackler Center First Awards recognize “women who are first in their fields.”
But wait a minute… Doesn’t this go against Miss Piggy’s stated personal tenets? From a USA Today write-up by Matthew Diebel:
They say that it is a woman’s prerogative to change her mind.
And that certainly seems that is the case with Muppets diva Miss Piggy, who is collecting a coveted feminism award in New York City on Thursday evening.
After all, the porcine puppet has been quoted as saying: “What are awards? Mere baubles, mere bagatelles, mere Brussels sprouts… One does not labor to shape one’s craft just for some tacky statuette that looks like a hood ornament from an old DeSoto.”
The reason Miss Piggy decided to make an exception in this case may well be summed up in two words: Gloria Steinhem. The editor of Ms. magazine will there tonight as well to conduct a Q&A. Kermit will also drop by, but that probably wasn’t a factor. The awards presentation runs tonight from 6 to 7 p.m.

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round has Essence taking on Bicycling.
Essence’s latest features the stars of Orange is The New Black looking relaxed because hell, why shouldn’t they be? That show is great.
We chose Bicycling, meanwhile, because of its updated look. Also, because the creative team somehow made riding a bike with a basket attached look cool. Well done.
So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
If you’ve been paying attention, the Smartphone broadcast revolution is in full swing. Following an initial charge led by Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao, Jimmy Kimmel and The King, it’s the turn of Bono, The Edge, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. With plenty more reinforcements to follow.
One way FishbowlNY recommends using Periscope or Meerkat in these cases, whether it be U2 at the Forum in Los Angeles (just completed) or The Rolling Stones in rainy Minneapolis (also last night), is to find the best audio quality feed and forget about watching the picture. Ultimately, it’s about listening to the live music rather than watching the live show.
Echoing that approach for The Grateful Dead’s historic series of reunion shows in Chicago next month is SiriusXM. Today, the satellite broadcaster announced it will broadcast all three performances July 3-5 live from Soldier’s Field:
The concerts will air at 9:15 pm ET on SiriusXM’s Grateful Dead Channel 23, through the SiriusXM App and online at siriusxm.com. The concerts will also be rebroadcast on SiriusXM’s Grateful Dead Channel the day after each performance as well as over Labor Day Weekend.
\"As generations of Dead fans eagerly anticipate these historic shows, we are thrilled that our subscribers who were not able to get tickets will still be able to experience this iconic band performing together one last time,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM president and chief content officer. “Created with the band and curated by Dead experts, our Grateful Dead Channel is the perfect platform for a whole nation of long-time fans and new ones to hear these shows.\"
Channel hosts David Gans and Gary Lambert will hosts a special edition of their weekly show before and after the concerts. Among the guests will be band archivist David Lemieux. A limited amount single-day tickets for the upcoming Dead Chicago shows are being released online Friday. There’s also a fun contest involving Airbnb and drummer Bill Kreutzmann.

In December 2010, the magazine dubed Clauson a \"Model of the Moment.\" The piece begins as follows:
Discovered by Ford Models in 2009, fifteen-year-old Hailey Clauson is hitting her stride. The All-American girl with a pout to remember caught our attention at the Spring 2011 collections in Milan and Paris, walking in big-name shows like Gucci and Lanvin.
Today, Harper’s Bazaar digital fashion/features director Kerry Pieri is showcasing Clauson through the filter of \"My Life in 3 Looks.\" No surprise that the SoCal native looks equally stunning in Gym Gear, Weekend Brunch and A Night Out on the Town attire. In the accompanying Q&A, Clauson recalls some of her standout career moments:
“I did a Louis Vuitton show in Paris one year and I came out of a elevator and Kate Moss closed the show with a cigarette in her mouth, just amazing. There’s a photo of me that day photobombing Kate Moss, Marc Jacobs, Carmen Kass and I think Anja Rubik and it’s me, a 16-year-old girl in the background [laughs].”
We searched online for that photo, but couldn’t find. If anyone has a link to it, please let us know and we’ll add it below.

Comedian Amy Schumer started her speech at the Glamour Women of The Year Awards speech by noting that she was “not nevrous.” Moments later, that was apparent when she stated, “I’m probably like 160 pounds right now, and I can catch a dick whenever I want; that’s the truth.”
Schumer—who was honored as Trailblazer of the Year—had the audience roaring with laughter. We had the exact same reaction.
Politico’s expansion to Florida and New Jersey has begun. According to Capital New York (soon to be Politico New York) several journalists are transferring to the new setups in Tallahassee and Trenton.
Matt Dixon is joining Politico to over the Tallahassee bureau. Dixon most recently served as Tallahassee bureau chief for the E.W. Scripps Company. Dixon will be joined by Jessica Bakeman and Marc Caputo. Ryan Hutchins, most recently a real estate reporter for Capital, will oversee the Trenton bureau.
Eventually the Tallahassee and Trenton bureaus will have about six staffers each.
In an expected move, Gawker Media staffers have voted to join a union. The votes were overwhelmingly in favor, with 80 for and only 27 against.
Gawker’s staff will now be represented by the Writers Guild of America, East.
“The next steps: determining what we want to bargain for; forming a bargaining committee; and negotiating a contract,” read a post by Gawker staff.
All New York DC Comics employees were offered jobs on the west coast. But as the LA Times’ Jevon Phillips reports, only half the staff at 1700 Broadway decided they could make the trek to Burbank.
And so, to today, the staff working within a stone’s throw of corporate parent Warner Bros. is made up of roughly one-third former NYC employees, one third existing Burbank staff and one-third new hires. From the LA Times feature:
“It’s always sad when you see people you’ve worked with for a while leave,” DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio says. “But it does create opportunity. It brings in new sets of eyes, new blood and allows us to re-examine how we work. It allows us to challenge ourselves to find ways to work better if we can.”
The last big story worked on by the now disbanded New York staff was Convergence, a comic book miniseries roping in characters from across the decades. As Didio and his partner Jim Lee note in the article, it was time as well for some real-world convergence.
Max Nelson comes from Vox Media; Kareem Ahmed was previously helping The New York Times with audience development and growth; and Alexandra Serio served most recently as director of content development at SFX. But before all that, as WWD’s Alexandra Steigrad explains, the trio worked in different capacities for VICE.
Their new site, NYC.TV, will eventually lead with original documentary content. But today, at launch, it’s a mix of aggregated streams and big plans:
NYC.TV is raising a seed round that it hopes to close at the end of July. It will also raise money through a Kickstarter campaign that launches today.
Serio said 70 percent of what the site garners from Kickstarter will go to content creators, with the bulk of what’s left going to marketing the site.
Serio also told Steigrad that the company has targeted Denver and Los Angeles as eventual, additional physical outposts.
Consider the subscriber cover for this week’s Sports Illustrated issue. Pictured, left to right, are Women’s World Cup U.S. team stars Carli Lloyd, Alex Morgan, Abby Wambach and Sydney Leroux. Per the Democrat & Chronicle, all four have a connection to a local Rochester team:
Wambach and Lloyd played for the Western New York Flash in 2013 and 2014. Morgan was on a championship Flash squad as a rookie in 2011 and Leroux was acquired by WNY earlier this spring in a trade for the rights to Wambach, who chose not to play on a pro team this season to focus on the World Cup in Canada.
There are also, for this issue, four individual regional newsstand covers, each featuring one of the four players. In the case of the wonderfully headlined one for Wambach (“Abby’s Road“), four is the additionally magic number:
The 1998 Our Lady of Mercy High School graduate is the fourth Rochester-area native to grace the cover of SI.
Per reporter Jeff DiVeronica, the others are skier AJ Kitt (January 1992), runner Dick Buerkle (February 1970) and one-time college football star Don Holleder (November, 1955).
