You should already be a learned fan of St. Vincent (a.k.a. Annie Clark), synth-y solo artist extraordinaire – but in case you're not, the singer's new self-titled album is set to hit stores this February 24th.  Already carrying heavy stamps of approval from Robin Hilton and Bob Boilen at NPR, the new set of songs is highly influenced by our current digital culture; there's a dance-y bass line ribboning through singles like below's "Digital ...

If there are two things I love, it’s animals and Ellen DeGeneres. Since it’s Ellen’s birthday this week, she decided to break the rules a little bit and share her very special Super Bowl commercial ahead of time. Ellen stars as Goldilocks—Ellilocks, if you will—except instead of searching for porridge, she really wants to groove out to the perfect tune on the app Beats Music. Always the animal lover, Ellen ends up having a blast with ... Read More
The old-as-time question of the feminist killjoy: Should I be enjoying this? I’ve found the answer is, typically, not really. Unless of course it’s 30 Rock, or Wanda Sykes standup. Girl Code is the MTV show that echoes VH1’s I Love the 80’s/90's in set-up and production. The show provides a litany of interview sound bytes from a variety of funny women, and a couple of dudes for “the male perspective.” *eye roll* What can be ... Read More
Just when we thought we had finally eschewed all reason for live TV, last night's broadcast of the Grammys made us glad we slogged through all those Pepsi commercials and Justin Timberlake sponsorships. Not for the ceremony itself, but for the debut of a brand new trailer for Disney's Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie as the hottest Disney villain since Hades. Angie stuns as the Sleeping Beauty villain in a horned headpiece, green CGI flames, and a collar higher ... Read More
Margaret Cho has been brought on to co-star in Tina Fey's upcoming sitcom about a women's college going co-ed.Cho, the hilarious and brilliant comedian, will play Laura Thibault, the college president responsible for the new inclusivity. Apparently, Thibault is a "divisive figure on campus" (a.k.a probably a badass) struggling with her decision to bring on the men, as she is easily frustrated with their boyish ridiculousness.  I smell a new ...

 Just a quick note: here in Girls Recap Land, we recap the most recent episodes...which means that there will be many, many spoilers. If you have not yet seen the episode and you care about the purity of your experience, we suggest that you don’t read the following, because it will, quite literally, be a play-by-play. K? K. Marnie—poor, long-suffering, couch-crashing Marnie—is running stairs, chugging banana-coconut smoothies, and listening ... Read More
 Image courtesy of Stylenews.com As HBO's Girls kicks its third season into high gear, we've been spotting the show's lead actresses just about everywhere. Lena Dunham, on the cover of Vogue. Allison Williams, spearheading Elle Magazine's annual “Women in TV” issue. Zosia Mamet (or, her doppelganger...) on 23rd and Lexington, hailing a cab... It's nice to hear the actresses speak about their show with a new poise – for despite those ... Read More
   Hey, look: it’s another peaceful morning chez Horvath-Sackler—you know, cutting your lover’s hair and weaving it into a cute little love-rug, like happy couples do. Suddenly, Adam’s sister stumbles in, having barely escaped the clutches of an abusive boyfriend, and lady is clearly mid-psychotic episode. All signs point to changing the locks, but Hannah, for some reason, chooses this moment to be compassionate. Sure, she can ... Read More
It was a simple question posed by an article on clutchmagonline.com that spurred 28-year-old actor/writer/director Issa Rae into action: “Where’s the black version of Liz Lemon?” Rae realized she needed to bring a character she’d been forming in her mind to life before someone else did, so in 2011, she launched a Web series she both wrote and starred in, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl. During its two super popular seasons, Rae’s character J ... Read More
I don’t watch reality television expecting intellectual stimulation. I enjoy the drama and theatrics of women living a lavish lifestyle that I can’t afford (at least right now). I heartily laugh at the witty one-liners the ladies spew in confessionals. I don’t care if most of it is staged; it’s entertaining as hell. With 2.5 million viewers in its first week, Bravo’s latest show “Blood, Sweat, and Heels” proves I’m ... Read More
