Lady Gaga A Star Is Born

The Lady Is a Star: Going Off The Deep End With Gaga

HAAAAOOOAAAAAWAAAHHAAAAAAAHHHHH. I was #blessed to see an advance screening of A Star Is Born this week. Yes, I wore my The Monster Ball Tour tee out of respect. Yes, I'm fully aware that I've had an occasionally...complicated relationship with Lady Gaga, and I've occasionally been more of a Little…


Casa De Las Flores

True Life: I'm Obsessed With 'La Casa de Las Flores' (And The Music, Too)

I don't really do television, generally speaking. I'm usually too busy taking selfies at the gym or sorting my Britney CDs in reverse chronological order to get too heavily involved in a series, despite this being The Golden Age of Television or whatever...but I can safely say that I am obsessed…


Madonna Gary Heery

Happy 60th Birthday, Madonna, Queen of Pop

I do not know what to say on a day like today, a religious observance, in celebration (REFERENCE) of the 60th anniversary of the birth of Her Madgesty, but I’ll try. Has a day gone by when I DON’T think about Madonna? The reinventions, the fashions, the performances, the fans - speaking of:…


Discipline Part II

Discipline, Drinking & How Janet Jackson Helped Me Get It Together Again: Part II

Note to my readers: this is a little more personal (raw), as Lindsay Lohan would say. "Three months and I'm still sober," the one, true American Idol sang on her middle finger-to-Clive Davis 2007 opus, My December. And, like...same. I still haven't had a drink yet, y'all. Like, at all. If you were…


Madonna Is Disillusioned, Disconnected & (Still) Tired of Waiting on You

Feeling depressed? Stressed? Irritated? Madonna, Queen of Pop™ and #Relatable Content, is too. The "Love Tried to Welcome Me" icon is hard at work juggling her duties as a Portuguese soccer mom, a MDNA Skin peddler alongside a problematic, meme-stealing Fat Jew, and a musician recording her…


Janet Discipline

Discipline, Drinking & How Janet Jackson Helped Me Get It Together Again

Note to my readers: this is a little more personal (raw), as Lindsay Lohan would say. During the last weekend of March, I spent my Saturday night out doing the usual: bar-hopping from Brooklyn to Manhattan, drinking to near blackout excess. Some portions of the night are still hazy. (Very "Blur.")……


Ayumi Hamasaki 2018 Tokyo Rainbow Pride

Ayumi Hamasaki, Gay Icon, Performs at 2018 Tokyo Rainbow Pride

When it comes to Gay Icons™, I count a fair share of the usual suspects as my own: Madonna, Britney Spears, The Sisters Minogue. Perhaps you've heard of a few of them. But I also grew up hovering in the fan forums of pop stars from across the world in Japan and South Korea - something that I've…

'Remember When I Was Allowed to Be A Visionary?': Madonna Has Snapped

Madonna, Queen of Pop® and Portuguese Soccer Mom, has officially had it. As we've known for at least a month now, the emoji-abusing pop icon is working on new music again, resulting in what, presumably, will be her fourteenth studio album - the follow-up to 2015's leak-plagued Rebel Heart. What we…


Janet Jackson I Get Lonely Velvet Rope

Janet Jackson's 'I Get Lonely' Turns 20: A Look Back

"Want no one but you." It's Valentine's Day. Got somebody there? Good. Thinking about somebody who isn't? This one goes out to you. Twenty years ago this month (February 26, to be exact), Janet - Miss Jackson, if you're nasty - released a song called "I Get Lonely," the third single from her 1997…


Dita Von Teese Album

Dita Von Teese Is Releasing Her Very Own Chic, French Pop Inspired Album

Almost exactly five years ago to this day, Dita Von Teese and British electronic duo Monarchy debuted the delicious Pleasantville-meets-"Justify My Love" visual for their thumping dark-electro collaboration, "Disintegration." Given the (drop dead) beautiful burlesque dancing bombshell that Dita…


Kylie Minogue Dancing

Look, Let's Brace Ourselves: Kylie Minogue Is Going 'Dancing,' Cowboy Style

Blame Joanne. And the Miley Cyrus return-to-roots record. And Kesha's rowdy, honky-tonk empowerment rock. And Justin Timberlake's transformation into a #Masc4Masc flannel-wearing woodsman. But it appears the trend is now being tackled by our very own Mighty Aphrodite, too. Kylie Minogue is gearing…


MKS Love Me Hard

Mutya Keisha Siobhan's 'Love Me Hard' Is Another Bittersweet Reminder of What Could Have Been

Mutya Keisha Siobhan - previously known as the originally Sugababes, AKA the Origibabes - kicked off their would-have-been comeback with the best song of 2013 in "Flatline" - and then promptly fell off the face of the Earth in a fit of pushbacks, leaks, copyright battles and babies. We did get an…
