Can't Get Gou Out of My Head: A Kylie Classic Gets a Remix

You see, when you're an Icon™ in 2022, having your classic pop hits remixed by today's top talent is simply the thing to do. (One remix is enough, though. No need to do the same remix ten times in a row with slightly different tweaks. Not every Queen of Pop seems to be getting the memo.) Kylie…

Alanis Morissette Calm Before the Storm

You Oughta Unwind: Alanis Morissette Announces a Meditation Album

It has recently come to my attention that there is too much going on. A little bit of everything all of the time. Everything everywhere all at once. Too, too much! As if the past two years weren't enough as it is. Too much media to consume. Too many people draining me of my precious energy. (Keri…

FLO Cardboard Box

Can FLO Make Girl Groups Big Again in the West?

Girl groups are nearly on the verge of extinction...in the Western hemisphere, anyway. While there's certainly no shortage of talented troupes hailing from South Korea and Japan entertaining Asia and beyond with sold-out tours and non-stop hits - the Girls (are) On Top, in fact - the same sadly…

'In Real Life': Mandy Moore Is Returning With a New Album

I'm craving me some Che - err, Mandy Moore. You know who you are. She'll be forever yours. And on May 13, the "Candy" folk-pop princess herself returns.

Versace...Dior...Gucci...I'm so sorry, sweeties. This year, it's all about Chanel. Chanel Terrero, that is. It's hard to believe, but Måneskin's sexy Italian reign is already nearly over, as Eurovision Song Contest 2022 rapidly approaches this May in Turin, Italy. And now, a new supreme…
