“I kind of love that I’ve had to go through so many hurdles to get where I am because I feel like I deserve it,” @NickiMinaj says in her #TGreats17 cover story. She is frank about what she has been up against. “I got to prove myself a hundred times, whereas the guys that came in around the same time as I did, they were given the titles so much quicker without anybody second-guessing.” Above all, Minaj has persevered because she is always in control of her craft. She fought her way to the top of the music industry — and never made compromises.

#RoomOfTheDay: A seating area in one of three bars at Palazzo Margherita, Francis Ford Coppola’s luxurious Italian hotel. The nine-room property, set in a 19th-century palazzo 40 minutes’ drive from Matera in the town of Bernalda, his grandfather Agostino’s birthplace, is truly a family affair. Coppola’s children Roman and Sofia each have a suite on which they collaborated with the designer @jacques.grange (Sofia’s features elaborate frescoes, a walk-in marble shower and a leafy private terrace), and the whole tribe comes to stay once a year.

Amy Adams has convinced Hollywood — and herself — that she’s never to be underestimated. Part of the actress’s greatness is that she gives herself to her roles so completely. “I don’t need to relive trauma to empathize with it,” she says. If Adams has evaded the churn of celebrity culture, it’s partly because stardom is something she’s earned role by role. But stardom for women involves constant surveillance; shaking off intrusions is crucial to maintaining and defending a private self. “I had to learn how to shut the door when I walk off the set. It’s hard and it doesn’t always work, but more often than not it does now.” On the topic of the gender wage gap in Hollywood, Adams says, “It’s important to talk about inequality, but for me, where I feel most empowered is in educating myself and being, hopefully, a mentor for younger women. I offer any young actress I work with my phone number. I’ll tell them on set, ‘You don’t have to do that. You can say no.’” Adams speaks up when she wants, how she wants, and she is saying yes — and no — on her own terms.

@NickiMinaj is working on her fourth studio album, the title of which is, for now, a well-kept secret but is “super, super iconic.” “This album is everything in my life coming full circle and me being truly, genuinely happy. It feels almost like a celebration,” she says. “Now, I can tell you guys what happened for the last two years of my life. I know who I am. I am getting Nicki Minaj figured out with this album and I’m loving her.” It took a long time for her to get to a place of confidence and trusting in her instincts, and it hasn’t been without hurdles and challenges along the way. But, ever since she turned her gift into a career, it’s been nothing but a checklist of milestones.

A Tunisian who came to #Paris with his parents in 1962 as a 2-year-old, @Charles_Zana likes to think of himself as a “bohemian sort of collector” — and one of Ettore Sottsass’ most enthusiastic. In one room of his Rue de Grenelle apartment sits a lamp of his own design on a 1962 #Sottsass console, situated next to a Carlo Mollino Lutrario armchair, with stool, from 1957. A 1965 Sottsass totem, one of three Zana owns, stands in the corner. For more of his art-filled living space, click the link in our bio. Photo by @HenryBourne.

Designer of erotic jewelry @betonyvernon and her at-home version of the “theta rig,” hanging from the ceiling of Heaven, the space where she sees clients. A self-described “sexual anthropologist” and the author of the candid yet refined 2013 sex guide, “The Boudoir Bible,” Vernon holds sessions in her private Parisian home studio in which she helps clients find erotic awareness through a combination of talk therapy, movement and occasional treatments in this nine-foot bronze, steel and leather swinglike contraption. A client climbs in and is suspended horizontally four feet above the ground for 25 minutes — Vernon, a certified medical hypnotist, uses this therapy tool, which she designed, to ease the person into a meditative “theta state,” the brain-wave frequency reached during yoga and orgasm.

The artist Billie Zangewa and her work in the @blankprojects booth at London’s @friezeartfair. The booth was devoted to four small hand-sewn tapestries of raw silk by the Malawi-born, Johannesburg-based artist in a presentation entitled “Love and Happiness.” Zangewa is touted as primarily exploring intersectional identity in a contemporary context and challenging the stereotyping, objectification and exploitation of the black female body. But in these works (all made this year), she steered clear of obvious politics in favor of representing quotidian things, such as “Stolen Moments,” depicting a couple lounging in bed, one person working on a laptop while the other reads a book.

British artist Chris Ofili, who has lived in Trinidad since 2005, is the subject of a new show, “Paradise Lost,” at @davidzwirner in New York. The exhibition showcases four oil-and-charcoal paintings and one sculpture: a human puppet, suspended in a bird cage crafted out of wood and gold-plated wire. But, photographic work has recently become an extension of his practice. For a new series — which will be published in a forthcoming book and which debuts exclusively on T — the artist captured scenes around the neighborhoods, hills and coastline of northern Trinidad last summer. “‘Pocket photography’ is a way of gathering and storing information, but also a way of capturing information that the fleeting eye might not capture,” says Ofili of his series. The subject matter of the pictures — sidewalks, palm trees and chain-link fences — speaks to the themes in his show at Zwirner. “There’s an idea, a feeling, that’s triggered by the experience of seeing these settings, and I wouldn’t separate the inspiration from the artwork in the exhibition. They come from the same experience.” Photos by Chris Ofili

Dubbed “the shame of Italy,” the city of Matera remained largely abandoned for decades. Its two cave districts, Sasso Barisano and Sasso Caveoso, which are composed of individual dwellings carved into fossil-stuffed strata and stacked on top of each other like cells in a haphazardly constructed beehive, were inhabited from prehistory until the 1950s, when — overcrowded, poverty-stricken and disease-ridden — they were evacuated by the state. Recently, though, entrepreneurs have returned home after stints in Rome and Milan and given new life to the city, which will be 2019’s European Capital of Culture. One look at Matera today and you’ll wonder why the historic Puglian towns of Ostuni and Lecce get all the attention.

‘‘We’re always being watched,’’ says @trevorpaglen. This morning, the author and artist was named one of the 2017 MacArthur (@macfound) “genius” grant recipients for his work exploring the ways in which humans have transformed the surface of the Earth, and how we, in turn, have been transformed by those changes. Paglen is one of art’s more unusual figures, a kind of adventurer-philosopher whose work is often conceptual and highly technical, but can also be delightfully gonzo: He learned to scuba dive in order to photograph fiber-optic internet cables snaking across the ocean floor. He sent a time capsule into deep space of images etched on a silicon disc chronicling human history. This spring, he plans to send a satellite into low orbit, where it will be visible at night from Earth for eight weeks or so, literally twinkling like a diamond in the sky before it disintegrates in the atmosphere. If all goes according to plan, it will be the world’s first space sculpture. Click the link in our bio to read our story on Trevor Paglen, the visionary making art for a post-surveillance age.

Designer @guopei’s 2010 porcelain gown, inspired by blue and white Chinese ceramics, took 10,000 hours to make and was featured in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s blockbuster exhibition, “China: Through the Looking Glass.” To create the look, her team built up layers, first by drawing patterns directly onto the cloth, then overlaying them with embroidery and finally weaving shiny blue threads throughout to enhance the effect of the color on the eye. Each pattern is constructed by a single artisan to keep the design consistent as embroidery is as individual as handwriting. Then there is the draping of the silk, which fans out in stiff waves down the right side of the body and around the back in a process of construction that “is more like architecture” and is the hardest form of draping to achieve. She used broken fragments of blue and white porcelain to make the headpiece. “I think this piece is iconic,” says Guo of the gown. Guo’s artistry is now on display in her first solo U.S. exhibition at the SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion and Film (@scadfash). Photo by Amanda Greene

Any traveler to Japan knows that its sense of hospitality is unmatched anywhere else. For years, visitors could choose between two kinds of hotels: the Western kind (though often reinterpreted with Japanese materials, textiles and sightlines), or the traditional Japanese inn, the ryokan. Ryokans were originally built in medieval times to keep traveling merchants in comfort, offering ofuro baths, woven tatami floors and simple breakfasts of fish, tofu, rice and pickled vegetables. The new generation of Japanese accommodations, though, are neither ryokan nor hotel: They are restored samurai-era mansions, or refit prehistorical huts or even a Baja-esque beach camp.

For a new capsule collection, @loewe’s Jonathan Anderson (@jonathan.anderson) looked back to 19th-century British designer, poet and socialist William Morris. Morris was known to mix his own dyes from traditional ingredients — roots, flowers, and willow twigs — and is said to have started making wallpaper because he didn’t like any well enough to use in his own home. The collection, out in November, adapts four iconic Morris prints in ways both devout (delicately hand-knit onto wool jumpers and scarves; printed on classic Loewe Hammock and Puzzle bags) and irreverent (a hare, lifted from Morris’s Forest print, is painted onto a black biker jacket). Shot in the garden and against papered walls, illuminated by late afternoon sun, the collection takes on a dreamy, filmic quality. Here, a look-book image features a parka, trousers, messenger bag and and sneakers with William Morris’s Acanthus print. “There’s something magical about Morris,” Anderson says. “You feel like, if you’re wearing the wallpaper, you could just disappear into the house.” Click the link in our bio for a closer look at @loewe’s latest collection.
