This Is All Yours: alt-J’s Greatest and Worst Album yet?

The music from 2014 doesn’t seem to make much sense for popular rock outfits of that year, with many groups deciding to make quieter, more introspective albums than ever. Coldplay’s Ghost Stories, The Black Keys Turn Blue, and alt-J’s sophomore album This Is All Yours all fit into this category. However, unlike The Black Keys, […]

Metro Station Reunites with Trace Cyrus, New Single and Tour

Get ready to “Shake It” again, because Trace and Mason are back in business. Shortly after announcing that Trace had rejoined the band, Metro Station released a new single, and announced that they would be joining The Ready Set, Against the Current, and The Downtown Fiction on The Outsiders Tour this fall.

‘All About That Bass’: Another Sad Attempt at Faux Body Positivity

So here’s the thing: a woman can be body positive without the approval of a man. It’s true, and sadly, I don’t think pop media quite understands that yet, even in 2014. In Meghan Trainor’s “All about That Bass” music video, she stereotypically aligns body positivity to equating to male approval, and that the image […]

A Feminist on the Men’s Rights Movement

Some of the quotes and claims that have surfaced from the First International Conference on Men’s Issues  are so ridiculous as to be laughable. Upon realizing those speaking are completely serious, the humor fades to a sickening feeling that humanity is doomed. Take Canadian Senator Anne Cools, who apparently believes the patriarchy is some elaborate […]

Are Celebrities Helping or Harming the Feminist Movement?

One of the best indicators of popularity in the teenage girl kingdom is a spot on the “trending” page of Wanelo. For those familiar, it is generally a mecca of pop-culture referencing t-shirts, sexy two piece bathing suits, tribal print sunglasses, and all things TFIOS. The trending page is no stranger to black sleeveless tank […]

Despite the drama, Miley Cyrus is all about the music

The twenty-year old pop star takes to Twitter to let fans know about her upcoming album and dismisses haters all in one fell swoop. While the former Disney princess hasn’t released an album since 2010’s Can’t Be Tamed, a day rarely goes by without a headline highlighting Miley Cyrus. Instagram photos, breakup rumors, and now […]

Short Hair, Don’t Care – Miley’s Big Chop

Even though this may be news that no one cares about, it’s best to get it out of the way now before entertainment shows create segments about it and make montages dedicated to “Miley’s ‘Dos – Then to Now”. Don’t laugh, you know it’ll happen. Hollywood is obsessed with looks, and so are we. We […]

Miley Cyrus Makes Musical Return with Rock Mafia’s “Morning Sun”

Yesterday, the production/songwriting masterminds behind 00s hits such as “Potential Breakup Song” (Aly & AJ, now 78Violet), “Can’t Be Tamed” (Miley Cyrus), and “Naturally” (Selena Gomez & the Scene) dropped their mixtape, “Mixtape Vol. 1”.

The Age of Entitlement

It’s no secret that I want to work in the entertainment industry, at least not to friends, family, and anyone who’s been near me for longer than ten minutes. So it’s only natural that I read, watch, and listen to a lot of interviews to stay up to date on my gossip. After listening to […]
