We're excited to premiere the single "Sistersong 2018"...

Since Selina Kyle and her alter ego Catwoman were first introduced by DC Comics in 1940, her character has been portrayed onscreen by Eartha Kitt, Halle Berry, and Anne Hathaway. As a teenage Selina on FOX’s Gotham, though, Camren Bicondova brings something new to the role, and it isn’t just her age: She understands her. “I think a lot of people see her as this very closed-off, very selfish person,” Bicondova tells BUST. “I don’t think she’s selfish. I think her self-awareness makes her think of...
