Dua Lipa Don't Start Now

Dua Lipa Is Having a Genuinely Exciting Disco Moment

Back in early 2016, I pondered whether a newly debuted singer named Dua Lipa could Be The One. It's nearly 2020, and she's now a Main Pop Girl™. But with great chart moves comes great responsibility. Accordingly, the pressure was on for the 24-year-old star to deliver with "Don't Start Now," the…

Grimes Violence Video

'Violence': Grimes, of All People, Is Giving Us Choreography

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9SGYBHY0qs "Baby, it's violence..." It's, uh, difficult to predict what Grimes is going to do next, especially as of late: one minute she's accompanying a multi-billionaire to the Met Gala wearing a Tesla choker, stanning LOOΠΔ and duking it out with Azealia Banks…

Kelly Osbourne's 'One Word' Is Finally on Streaming

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXctSjshB1M The year was 2005: Mimi was emancipating herself, Gwen Stefani was dressed as a cheerleader teaching the world how to spell "bananas," Kelly Clarkson was leading the pop-rock revolution and so moving on, Lindsay Lohan was feuding with Hilary Duff over…

Alice Chater Tonight

'Tonight': Alice Chater Keeps on Dancing Till the World Ends

About over a year ago, I posed a very simple question: Is Alice Chater going to save pop? I was half-kidding, because the concept of "saving pop" is largely subjective, and there's plenty of good music coming out all the time. But I was also half-not kidding, because there's a very real void in…
