Tim Burton, the king of spooky cool and curator of '90s kids’ favorite movies from childhood, is coming out with a new lady-centered movie, Big Eyes.  The film is a true story about Margaret Keane, an artist from the 1950s played by Amy Adams, who specialized in painting images of children with freakishly huge eyes. But her husband Walter, played by the charming Christoph Waltz, is not such a charming character. In fact, he’s kind of a ... Read More

After receiving less than favorable reviews of her new single "Go" from her loyal fan base, Canadian singer-songwriter Grimes (or Claire Elise Boucher) has decided to scrap her entire new album and start from square one.  The song was originally written for Rihanna, according to The New York Times, so it has more of a pop/mainstream feel than Grimes' previous work. Overall, it’s a huge departure from her underground electronic sound fans have grown to ... Read More

All that being said, it’s hard to deny that Nicki Minaj embraces some form of feminism. But is her brand of ... Read More
