The Flash Forward: Kevin Durant — He's the NBA's most unstoppable scorer, But the knock on Him so far is that he's too nice to be like Mike, too quiet to dethrone King James. Don't Believe it. Yes, Kevin Durant might kill you with kindness-but he's as deadly as any superstar alive

Why You Hate Drake, and Why You're Wrong About Hating Drake — By now it's clear that Drake's Thank Me Later, which comes out today, is pretty much the most polarizing record in rap since Kanye West's 808s & Heartbreaks--more so, even, since Kanye was a well-established and loved artist making his fourth record, where Drake, at 23, is a relative newcomer...

Why Shane Black's — In this month's Shot Callers, we talk a filmmaker who got his early Hollywood breakout with hits like 1987's 'Lethal Weapon,' then spent a decade trying to break back in. This is The Shot Callers, a new series in which GQ goes long with our favorite filmmaker of the month.

Robert Downey Jr. on Iron Man's "Second-Tier" Status — He's always described as either the world's highest-paid actor or one of the greatest actors of his generation. So which one is it? Robert Downey Jr. keeps a couple of offices out in Venice Beach, near the water, in which he and his wife, Susan, and a handful of other people manage his affairs.

Inside 'Green Room,' the Hyper-Violent Punk Comedy-Thriller You Should See This Spring — This is Shot Callers, a series in which GQ goes long with our favorite emerging filmmakers. This month we talk to director Jeremy Saulnier. Before Jeremy Saulnier's Green Room becomes a wildly tense and bloody siege film, it's a near-idyllic portrait of a punk band-on the road, siphoning gas, falling asleep behind the wheel, playing bad shows to uninterested or entirely absent crowds.

The Misguided Nostalgia of HBO's — The first season of the Mick Jagger-Martin Scorsese collaboration didn't look back wistfully at the 1970s so much as it looked back wistfully at an earlier age of television. First off, we will miss you this offseason, Ray Romano-sad sack and lone completely unexpected vector of Vinyl, prone to saying the wrong thing and almost totally oblivious to the worshipful boomer iconography that crowds almost every frame of this show.

The Emancipation of Selena Gomez — Once known more for her relationships with Barney the dinosaur and Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez has broken free of all of that prehistoric shit with a sexy, smash-hit album and new films with Seth Rogen and James Franco (not to mention a planet-Earth-leading 74 million Instagram followers).

See Selena Gomez's Sexy GQ Photo Shoot Photos — Selena Gomez is technically 23, but really she's older than anyone knows. She's been working for more than half her life-most recently, that meant improvising with Seth Rogen on the set of Neighbors 2. ("I was cussing a lot and being dramatic," she says.)

'Serial' Season 2 Wasn't a Phenomenon-But It Was Still Pretty Phenomenal — So Serial Season Two ended yesterday, as it began, with a kind of reporting coup. In the first episode, that coup was the voice of Sgt.

Why 'Midnight Special' Director Jeff Nichols Moved On from 'Aquaman' — The director of Shotgun Stories and Mud talks about the intimate, primal inspirations for his films, why movie stars don't look like movie stars in his movies, and why he moved on from talks about directing Aquaman. This is The Shot Callers, a new series in which GQ goes long with our favorite emerging filmmaker of the month.
