  Princess Nokia performed three songs at a charity fashion show for Cambridge University earlier this week after experiencing an act of sexism. The New York born and raised rapper has been building a career for herself as an artist and as an ambassador for empowering young women of color in New York City. Her recent hit album, 1992, released in 2016 has made her a coveted act for festivals and the like.  As Cambridge Universty's forum for women and non-binary people of color reports, the singer "is...
Emily Bell channels Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction, in her new album. She evokes rising up and taking names in her new video "Can't Talk Back," directed by Bryan Poyser. The video features all-female tackle football team the Austin Raiders taking over a male football game to show these guys a thing or two about talking back (catch Boyhood actor Bill Wise as the coach) as Emily sings, "I'm the tremor of your earthquake/the sugar in you milkshake."   Emily was awarded Best New Artist by the Austin...
Time of Nick The Strokes’ Nick Valensi Steps Up 
to the Mic With His New Band CRX Nick Valensi has been the Strokes’ resident shredder for almost 20 years, but until recently, he’d never fronted a band himself. As all the other members of the Strokes embarked on various side projects and solo albums, Valensi remained silent. But that all changed this fall with the release of New Skin, the Josh Homme–produced debut album by his new band CRX. “Being on stage and going on tour and...

The 59th Annual Grammy Awards took place last night in 2017's dystopian America, and while there were plenty of deserving (and less-deserving) winners, there was one clear loser: President Agent Orange — I mean, Trump. 1. James Corden’s not-totally-cringe-inducing opening monologue rap called out Trump and called for unity with the lines "With President Trump we don't know what comes next / We sit here tonight, don't matter our race, where we were born or color of face / using this art, remember forever, we can...

    Today, multi-media recording artist and producer Grimes released the official video for "Venus Fly," from her acclaimed 2016 album Art Angels, with Janelle Monae. The video comes as the latest in a series of incredible, tonally diverse performances from Monae, including major roles in the Oscar-nominated films Moonlight and Hidden Figures, her latest album The Electric Lady, and an inspiring speech with the mothers of the Black Lives Matter movement at the Women's March on Washington. Along with making the music in the video, Grimes also wrote...
Pop star Janelle Monáe is at once retro and futuristic, disarmingly down-to-earth and freakishly abstract. Here, she reveals the strategy behind her trendsetting look, the origins of her “divinely inspired” alter ego, and what it’s like to hang out with the president                                                By Eliza C. ThompsonJanelle Monáe may have been born to sing, dance, and write some of the most creative pop albums...
Kesha’s legal battle to free herself from a contract that requires her to work with her alleged rapist, Dr. Luke, has been going on for more than two years — and there’s still no end in sight. To catch up: In October 2014, Kesha sued Dr. Luke, saying that he had drugged and raped her as well as abused her verbally, physically and emotionally. Dr. Luke countersued for defamation and breach of contract. In February 2016, a New York judge denied Kesha’s request for an injunction...
  Since 2015's "WTF (Where They From?)" music video, Missy Elliott hasn't done much... till now! "I'm Better," Missy Elliott's new single featuring Lamb, is a stripped-down sound, different from what we've heard from her in the past. The artsy music video seems Lady Gaga-esque, with elaborate and whimsical costumes. At the beginning of the video, dancers are wearing what seem to be SWAT helmets, which is likely a reference to the police brutality issue the United States continues to face. Here's hoping this single leads up to a...
San Francisco/Paris France based singer-songwriter, Rykarda Parasol, unveils a new video from her fourth album The Color of Destruction (Interbang Records 2016). “The Loneliest Girl in the World” captures both the longing and defeat of love’s limbo and is performed entirely by Ms. Parasol herself. Keeping with the starkness of the song, Krystal Kenney used a hand-held camera to capture the honesty and sparseness.
