Bridget Everett, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. You wear fabulously revealing get-ups for all your sets, you're a lady whose size can rival the guys, you look hot all the time, you make some of the bluest jokes I've ever heard, you have "the voice of an angel," you guest regularly on Inside Amy Schumer, and Time Out named you one of the "funniest New Yorkers."  If you aren't acquainted with all that, Bridget's brand-spankin'-new NSFW video is ...

Marnie Stern is mad. "I can't get one f***ing drink," she complains in the documentary I am Marnie Stern. Why can't one of the best metal guitarists have a beer at SXSW? Because she doesn't have a wristband, and nobody recognizes her. I've typed every variation of the phrase, "female guests sit in with 8G Band on Late Night with Seth Meyers," into search engines, but no cigar. This only proves what we all already know: it's not that there aren't women doing stuff ... Read More
On June 22, Frances Bean Cobain spoke out about Lana Del Rey’s recent comments regarding the glamorization of musicians that die young, specifically her now infamous statement: “I wish I was dead already.”In a series of tweets that tagged @LanaDelRey, Cobain reached out to the singer, saying “The death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticize…I’ll never know my father because he died young & it becomes ...

Searching for a summer jam to make you feel AWESOME? Girl, have I got something for you. I’ve been listening to Meghan Trainor’s new single, “All About That Bass,” nonstop for about an hour and my mood has significantly improved. The best part of Trainor’s single is that it’s all about loving yourself, no matter what you look like. Trainor starts off her retro pop jam singing about how she “ain't no size two”but how ...

Heartsrevolution has been a known name in the club scene both here in the states and across the pond since 2008, so it may be a bit surprising to discover that their first full-length album is only now coming out. Over the past few years, the duo went far to promote an image that made their name one to be remembered. Lead singer Leyla  “Lo” Safai dons a pink stripe across her eyes, they travel across the country in a Swarovski crystal-covered ice ... Read More
In the Disney Channel factory, they manufacture young actor-singer-hyrbids faster and with more precision than one of Will.I.Am’s crazy new 3-D printers -- creating perfectly adorable, multitalented camera-ready creatures that can not only cry on cue, but can also sing, dance and hype the crowd in a rhinestone-encrusted ensemble accompanied with a matching wireless headset microphone. However, not all celebrities were created with these duel ... Read More
Next March, no other than the world’s favorite Icelandic singer/film star/artist/Renaissance woman will be featured in a full-scale retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art.  As the MoMa announced today, Björk’s career will be the focus of this exhibit, which will take place from March 7, 2015 until June 7, 2015 - mark your calendars now! Since 1993, Björk has been defying industry standards - most notably with her second studio album, ... 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 ...

“The best film music is not heard,” quotes Claudia Gorban in her essay Music as Salvation: Notes on Fellini and Rota. She tastefully disagrees with this quote, asking why is that people focus so much on the “background” music in Fellini’s films? I ask myself the same question. Why is that I focus so much on the background music? Our non-diegetic friend that is lurking behind what is going on on-screen stands out further to me than any ... Read More
Blond wigs and surreal dance solos seem to be a trend in pop music this spring. None have used these elements as symbolically, however, as Lena Dunham performing an interpretive dance to Sia's new single "Chandelier" on Late Night with Seth Meyers. The wig mirrors Sia's own blond bob, which facelessly adorns the cover of her new album 1000 Forms of Fear.In the feminist community especially, we're all aware of the controversy surrounding Dunham, star ...
