Click here to read the full article on SPIN.

FLETCHER is quite impulsive.

Her new The S(ex) Tapes EP was originally set for a Sept. 18 release, but she couldn’t wait any longer and surprise-dropped it over a week early.

“I just felt like it was pretty on-brand for me to leak my own sex tape,” the pop singer/songwriter tells SPIN on Sept. 9 — the afternoon of the new release — with a cheeky laugh. “I wanted to be able to just share it with people as soon as possible.”

There aren’t any rules when it comes to FLETCHER’s music (born Cari Elise Fletcher), whose career kicked off with 2015’s viral hit “War Paint.” The artist attributes it to giving “way less fucks” in every aspect of her life.

“I used to give way too many and it messes with your mental health,” she says. “I’ve taken on this

Agent Provocateur Marks New Chapter Under CEO Michelle Ryan

Emilee Geist

LONDON — Agent Provocateur is turning a fresh page and tapping into many a growth opportunity under its new chief executive officer Michelle Ryan.

Ryan — who has held executive positions at brands including Saint Laurent, Jimmy Choo, Burberry and most recently Kurt Geiger — joined creative director Sarah Shotton at the helm of the brand in January. Even though the two had a mere few weeks of working together before the U.K. went into lockdown, they’ve been keeping the business going from a distance and identifying growth areas.

“I knew that the brand was much bigger than the actual business today. We have an amazing community of Agent Provocateur women who absolutely love us. Sarah and the team have really started to evolve the communications and the brand, and that was happening in advance of my arrival,” said Ryan.

“I felt really confident about that aspect of the business

Emilee Geist

In the switchover to electric vehicles, governments hand out subsidies to new car buyer to help make the transition a little financially sweeter. In most countries, though, the subsidies only apply for new EVs, but in Scotland that’s no longer the case.

According to Next Green Car, a consumer advice site that helps drivers make the switch to plug-in vehicles, the Scottish government is for the first time extending its Low Carbon Transport Loan to also cover used electric vehicles.

For many, buying a new EV is more expensive than a combustion engine car, particularly at the low-end of the market.

Well, that was a different sort of maternity leave. It’s been 216 days since my last column, and how life has changed! I wish I could say that this was entirely due to our son, Walter, making his way into the world, but the issue of a global pandemic also features. I admit I feel somewhat sheepish about returning to writing about fashion. It all seems a bit irrelevant, doesn’t it?

And yet, as I looked around the shops on my first visit to London last week, I was reminded of what talent we have in this country. I was also reminded of the vast numbers of people employed by the industry, and that’s just the people and products we see. Behind the scenes, at fashion HQs up and down the country (although more likely working from home currently), there are great armies

Emilee Geist

Over the weekend, news surfaced that some Tesla Supercharger locations let non-Tesla drivers charge their electric vehicles (EVs), for free.

Reports over at Electrek and Autoblog say that it’s a bug, on the other hand, CleanTechnica’s analysis of the situation suggests that it might be a hint at things to come thanks to EU legislation. Let’s take a look at what’s going on.

It all seemed to begin when German YouTube channel Nextmove demonstrated charging a VW ID.3 at a new Tesla Supercharger location in Germany. You can watch the video here, but the long and short of it is that they managed to charge a bunch of non-Tesla EVs, without paying a cent, at the new Superchargers.

The “newness” of the Superchargers is an important detail here. Tesla’s most up-to-date units use a CCS charger, which
