"I am such a big fan of Britney Spears. I love ALL her songs which gave me reason to create a portrait of her in Corn Flakes form," explains artist Sarah Rosado, who clearly wasn't listening when her parents told her not to play with her food.
Rosado is based out of the Bronx, where she creates images of famous female singers using cornflakes and kitchen utensils. Her inspiration? A breakfast playlist that inspires her to get crafty. Not only ... Read More

AMY, created by BAFTA-winner Asif Kapadia, is a beautiful homage to the singer's life, and judging from the trailer it's going to be an ... Read More

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

After receiving less than favorable reviews of her new single "Go" from her loyal fan base, Canadian singer-songwriter Grimes (or Claire Elise Boucher) has decided to scrap her entire new album and start from square one.
The song was originally written for Rihanna, according to The New York Times, so it has more of a pop/mainstream feel than Grimes' previous work. Overall, it’s a huge departure from her underground electronic sound fans have grown to ... Read More

Apart from her amazing performance in her band White Lung, it was Mish Way's unabashed admiration for Courtney Love that first endeared her to me. For all her faults, Courtney taught a generation of girls that women could be wild rock stars too. Sure, there were lots of female-fronted rock groups like Veruca Salt and Garbage around, but none were nearly as in-your-face, smart and unapologetic as Courtney. She always had an articulate and witty reply ... Read More

It's easy to say that guys sometimes don't understand the struggle inherent in the female experience. They haven't had to endure the hardship, live in the carefully negotiated bodies we women occupy, or deal with the unfair boundaries society sets for us. And then I read something that suggests men might not be the only ones who are deluded.
Mariel Loveland, a musician in the band Candy Hearts, recently wrote a piece for Noisey called "How to ... Read More

Ethan Fixell of MTV's Guy-Code won himself a little flack last Wednesday when he published an article decrying the typical lack of hot chicks at metal concerts. The piece, somewhat obtusely titled “Why Are There So Many Cute Girls at Metal & Hardcore Concerts Now?” challenges its readers with funny, true remarks like “Death metal events are known to be...how do I put this...'vaginally challenged.'” ...yup.
But Mr. Fixell is also pretty good at ... Read More
