Ruthless Lantern is gossip magazine with the style of 90s Hong Kong star system. Created by Xiaoshi Vivian Vivian Qin, it features contributions from 23 artists working with the contemporary art discourse of rumour mill. A publication of Miss Ruthless International, Ruthless Lantern draws on the depths of diasporic souls and takes pageantry as method.

The girl opened the door to the new world. facial mist, onion tiger, corn Phoenix. Dragon sweat, immoral details. I feel so much comfort wearing this makeup. Hard up. Cheering in the valley of darkness. There are many kinds of injuries and different ways to die. Big eye gal, Dapeng wings. Big discussion. We taste it. The end of the meeting. In fact, I think I’m holding so much empathy that I can explode any second. They pushed the trolley, in and out, in and out. They never invited me to bubble tea party after school. Kale blueberry smoothie. Hormones. Wow! No Way! Strong eggs! Raise up, don’t be a slave, Beauty! I caught a bus and went home. New Woman. She is a dream girl with superpower, she can transform into anyone she wants. In the star-studded stage, she debuts as a dog whose eyes are glued to the dog cookies. 2047. Dancing at work, dancing in the kitchen. Intensive. The spirit of independence and the will of freedom. Straightforward adventure. Automatic beauty exercises practice save time and effort. Do you really want to kill it? Flushing. Big Brother Big Papaya, Marriage Problem. Through the maze of the same cage distance.The time to never reclaim foot-blinding is now. As long as you are willing to battle, the sea is heaven, the field is yours. A 30 years old female, happier than ever, can’t wait to go home after work. Your presence will deter all the human beings around you. Super Asia. Beauty, best wishes. Because Fatfat is the only person who is allowed to be obese on television but also respected and loved. A bad girl fell from the sky to create a beautiful shining golden world.

— excerpts rearranged in the style of Dutch Schultz’s last words.
