It's 2014 and this is officially Nicki Minaj’s year. She rang in the new year with February’s “Lookin Ass” (which literally annihilated the male gaze) and made headlines with her “Baby Got Back”-reclaiming “Anaconda”.

This killer follow-up to Gemma Ray's equally strong Island Fire balances light and dark on a razor's edge, that eerie interplay between the creepy and the mundane that David Lynch has been toiling in for decades.
In fact, much of Milk For Your Motors feels ... Read More

Her attire screams sugar and spice and everything nice, but that smirk, well, that smirk is more in line with the album’s title, Secret ... Read More
