Iggy Azalea may be the newest larger than life female on the rap scene, but her videos tend to favor the pint-sized. She went viral for her video for her song "PU$$Y," in which what loos like a six-year-old kid clings to her neck. If he hung around the set long enough, he could hear lines like "pussy illy, wetter than the Amazon, taste this kitty" or "taste the rainbow, here's my Skittles." Not exactly age appropriate, but more like a premature lesson in sex-ed. Her latest video has less pussy and way more pageantry. Read More
Three members of Pussy Riot, the radical, neon balaclava-wearing group of Russian feminist activists that challenged the Kremlin with their electrified feminist performance protests, went on trial in Moscow on Monday in a case that will set the tone for Vladimir Putin's new presidency. Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, Yekaterina Samutsevich, 29, and Maria Alekhina, 24, face up to seven years in jail, simply for performing a protest song in a cathedral. They felt that the church was a representation of the "nexus of corruption" that  takes place between Putin and some officials of the church. Read More
British singer Paloma Faith showed that even if you're not an athlete, you can win a gold medal for style on Saturday when she carried the Olympic torch through East London.

Talk about going for the gold. Read More
I'm a pretty big list maker. Post-its have become a part of my room decor and scribbled on notes are forever falling out of my backpack pockets. I'm also always on the lookout for some new inspiration, so an inspiring inventory is pretty much the cream of the crop in my book. These four are particularly special--each collection of words provides inspirational thoughts and ideas that are applicable to living a creative, inquisitive, and fulfilling life in general. You don't have to be an artist, musician, or writer to appreciate these mini-manifestos. Read More
    Purity Ring, the Canadian electronic duo of Corin Roddick and Megan James, sounds like water so freezing cold it shocks your skin—it’s surprising, uncomfortable, and disorienting. Icy-blue notes appear throughout their debut full-length album, Shrines, as James’ aloof-but-assertive vocals go in and out of focus, trading places moment to moment with spastic synthesizers. Roddick handles that instrument, turning delicate melodies and bottomed-out bass—so low it verges on electrical current—into a haunted soundscape. Read More
