Full disclosure: We're pretty major Madonna fans around these parts, and often find Rihanna to be a bit disappointing (that has not, however, stopped us from jamming out to her music from time to time). So when we came across this RiRi cover of "Vogue," we were prepared to have mixed feelings about it.  No surprises here: We're on the fence—but what do you think? Image c/o Instagram & Sire ...

Blistering musical auteur and former BUST cover girl PJ Harvey is all set to lay down her new album—over the course of a month-long exhibit entitled Recording in Progress, and in front of a live audience. After a nearly four-year recording hiatus following the release of 2011’s Let England Shake (which also won her a second Mercury Prize, nbd), Harvey’s newest endeavor and tenth record will waver between a studio LP and a live album. The 3,000 ... Read More
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from powerhouse rapper Remy Ma. After all, for the last six and a half years, she’s been serving time at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for assault. But even the youngest hip-hop heads will recognize the 34-year-old’s smooth lyrical delivery from the 2004 Terror Squad track “Lean Back” with Fat Joe, which earned her a Grammy nod and a place on every “best of hip-hop” list. ...

  A Christmas carol to put all other Christmas carols to shame - "White Privilege" written by the team at Lady Parts Justice to the tune of "White Christmas" is the perfect holiday reflection on everything that has been happening in our country during the past few months (and for a solid portion of our entire history). Set on the streets of Brooklyn, five women of color slowly sway past brownstones singing their revised rendition of the holiday classic, as ... Read More
Check out this new video for Maya Angelou’s track “Pickin’ ‘Em Up,” off the recently released album, Caged Bird Songs. Named after her 1969 autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, the album combines Angelou’s vocal performances with rad hip-hop and funk beats.

In 2001, American grunge punk band L7 went on an indefinite hiatus. That hiatus is on its way to a close. That’s right, folks, On December 10th L7 took to their Facebook fan page to announce this: ATTENTION! A personal message from the band: Greetings People! We want you to know that the love and support you have shown us here on Facebook this year has taken us all a bit by surprise. What started as a simple band page for us to post some archival photos we ... Read More
Maybe we wish it wasn’t so groundbreaking at this point, but the truth is Hanna Brewer is a badass for doing what she’s doing: playing drums. The world of performing musicians is still largely made up of men, and though women have been dominating Billboard charts this year, the backlash against the upcoming Women in Music Awards reminds us that female success in the music industry is not yet entirely expected (for example, like this FDRMX article asks, ...

Ah, pizza. The great universal uniter of peoples. No matter if you're a deep dish devotee or a fold-em-in-half thin crust lover, we can all agree that there is nothing wrong with sitting down, or standing up, for a terrific slice of pizza. You know who else digs pizza? Macaulay Culkin. He of the Home Alone face slap and child-star growing pains is such a fan that he is a member of the comedy rock band The Pizza Underground, and they have finally released a new ... Read More
