Princess Nokia is unstoppable. As she continues her tour around the country, the New York City rapper recently surprised fans with two new music videos from her latest album 1992: witchy girl-anthem "Brujas" and gamer girl inspired "Kitana." Nokia co-directed and created the concept behind "Brujas." The video is heavily influenced by Yoruba religion — including clips modeled after Yemaya, the female water spirit who represents the mother of all things. With her gang of witches, they cast spells, Nokia co-directed and created the concept behind...
Photo via Instagram Nicki Minaj fans, get your headphones ready. She's back and better than ever.  Hopeful fans were duped last month by Minaj when she tweeted about surprise-dropping a new album (nothing was ever released). The rap superstar hasn't released any new music in a while so we're glad that this new track has broke through Minaj's radio silence. Her latest remix slays to the tune of Rae Sremmurd's viral banger "Black Beatles." Appropriately titled "Black Barbies," Nicki's verses are cool and ruthless. "Island girl, Donald Trump...
The Piano Lesson by Henriëtte Ronner-Knip, 1897 One does not have to be a fan of classical music to be familiar with the works of French composers Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel. The two rivals were part of the Impressionism movement in classical music, a movement inspired by Impressionist painters like Monet, Manet, and Renoir and poets such as Verlaine and Baudelaire. They were also renowned cat lovers who famously allowed their feline muses to prowl at liberty amongst their papers while composing such masterpieces as...
While many of us were studying algebra and going out for the school play at fourteen, Willow, Lena, Dea, and Rihana of the band Harsh Crowd have already played alongside Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill and Mac DeMarco. Not to mention, earlier this year they got a shoutout on Twitter by the one and only Gloria Steinem. That’s right, four 14-year-olds from New York City have already done what many artists work a lifetime to accomplish. The group met in 2013 at the Willie Mae...
Photo Credit: Ken Grand-Pierre With her haunting lyrics and raw, melodic voice, the NYC-based musician Sophie Strauss is a force to be reckoned with and we are so excited to finally debut the official music video for "In The Freezer," one of the tracks off of her debut EP Yeah No Fine. The video, equal parts witchy and wonderful, works perfectly with Strauss's emotional energy. As she sings about her own longing and neuroses, splashes of gold and pink paint and dainty illustrations dance around her. Although...
Beyonce performed at the Country Music Awards Wednesday night and, like everything else she does, it was amazing. Bey teamed up with the Dixie Chicks to perform her country-inspired song "Daddy Lessons" from her revolutionary album Lemonade; and although that seems like a dream come true to a lot of music listeners, not all country fans were thrilled. When it was announced on Wednesday that Beyonce would be performing for the 50th anniversary of the CMAs, fans took to Twitter to voice their concerns. Some of...
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The awful humidity and insects have gone away (for the most part), the leaves are changing, and pumpkins and pumpkin spice have taken over our lives!

In the upcoming documentary L7: Pretend We’re Dead (directed by Sarah Price and produced by Blue Hats Creative), feminists rockers like Joan Jett and Brody Dalle discussed the iconic grunge band. One highlight is Shirley Manson of Garbage, explaining in this clip her love for L7. “I had never seen a band before L7 that was all female fronted, all the members were female, they wrote their own material, and played their own material — I had never really come across that,” says Manson. Manson explains that L7...
Moby has returned and he’s angry as hell! Feeling this way is very understandable, considering the turbulent world we live in. Moby’s issue is that many of our systems — such as government, business, manufacturing industries, and technology — have failed the people on the planet.  Known for his ambient, electro pop sounds since the ‘90s, Moby instead draws from punk, post-punk, new wave, euphoric rave, and yelling on his new album with the Void Pacific Choir, These Systems Are Failing (MUTE Records). Yeah, there’s a lot of yelling,...
The discussion of women's bodies in politics has been more present today, in the midst of the 2016 election, than ever before. Not only are we seeing political parties bash heads over contraceptive rights and access to abortion, individuals such as Donald Trump— who made national headlines a few weeks back for saying that he’d “grab [a woman] by the pussy”— have made it clear that sexism is alive and well in the political circuit. Many have reacted to Trump’s comments, as well as running...
