T-Swift is always making headlines. Among other things, she's recently seen the light and is a self-proclaimed feminist, Diplo has been calling her out on Twitter for not having an ass (with none other than Lorde quickly coming to her defense), and have you guys seen her ridiculously gorgeous cover for Wonderland Magazine??
But we can’t forget why she’s here in the first place—she’s an amazingly talented artist. Her highly ... Read More
LaJune Grant is the first female to have seven straight wins on BET’s “Freestyle Friday Competition,” retiring to the Freestyle Friday Hall of Fame in 2003, and making it into the hearts of everyone who has ever experienced her talent. Grant regularly performed when she first moved to New York (at The Apollo Theater, Arlene’s Grocery, The Delancy, and so much more) to pursue a music career, and she finally stepping up to the mic again ...

Ever since Taylor Swift entered the music industry, there has been a running joke in the media about her being a serial dater, emotional and, of course, if a boy breaks up with her, she will write a song about it, dammit.
In her new video for “Blank Space,” directed by Joseph Kahn, Swift appropriates the persona created by the media and personifies her lyrics, “Darling, I’m a nightmare/dressed like a ... Read More

Okay, tabloids are annoying enough to begin with but the amount of shade they throw at women trying to complete simple tasks is totally ridiculous. Can’t they stop dramatizing every little move celebs make?! Vagenda Magazines twitter recently asked followers to ‘normalize’ hypercritical tabloid headlines and boy oh boy did they come through. Retorts vary from complimenting celebs for being normal human-beings, to simply acknowledging how good ... Read More

Lorde learned a lesson last year after criticizing some of her fellow pop stars Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez for having “unfeminist lyrics” or for being too “unobtainable and flawless.” It's safe to say that Lorde wasn’t trying to be catty or harsh, and seems more like the kind of girl who was more interested in holding people accountable and reminding us that celebrities aren’t perfect. We know she has definitely changed her ... Read More

While I may not agree with Miley Cyrus's every move (that was not a twerking pun, for the record), she's finally spouting some truth I can get behind: feminism. In an interview with BBC's radio program Newsbeat, Miley declared: "I feel like I'm one of the biggest feminists in the world because I tell women to not be scared of anything. I'm for anybody and everything. I don't care what you want to do in your life, or who you want to be with, who you want to love or ... Read More

(Of all time!)
When the web gives us wonders like Feminist Ryan Gosling, Feminist Harry Potter, and now the ultra-viral Feminist Taylor Swift account, it seems like the whole cyberverse explodes—and for good reason. Feminist Taylor Swift is probably my favorite parody to come out this year, and it’s all thanks to Brown University student Clara Beyer, whose quest for lyrical justice began like most movements: out of frustration.
As both a fan and ... Read More

Feminist icon and punk legend Kathleen Hanna is one of my many heroes. Defiant activist, outspoken pro-choicer, amazing songwriter, skilled musician, and prolific zine author, my friends and all kind of wish we were her. Her ground-breaking riot grrrl band Bikini Kill changed punk forever but Hanna wasn’t going to stop there. After Bikini Kill broke up in 1997, she went on to start electronic-dance-punk band Le Tigre, which is now sadly on ... Read More
