HyunA Lip Hip Thanx Single

'Lip & Hip': HyunA Delivers the Horny, Porny & Polarizing Pop Anthem We Deserve

In a world full of cutesy schoolgirl concepts and aegyo-filled choreography, Queen HyunA is a breath of sleazy, sex-starved air. Barring a handful of exceptions, K-Pop exists within a fairly conservative bubble, rarely pushing the envelope in terms of sexuality. HyunA, however, flicks a middle…

Miley Cyrus Younger Now

"Younger Now": Miley Cyrus Just Ain't the Same These Days (Review)

"No one stays the same..." Evolving one's identity gradually over a period of time is a tricky thing to master in the pop world. (Not everyone can be Madonna, after all.) By now, in case "Mailbu" wasn't a strong enough visual and sonic indication, you should know: Miley Cyrus is scaling things…


Justin Bieber Friends

Justin Bieber & BloodPop's "Friends": For When It Is, in Fact, Too Late to Say Sorry (Review)

From "Where Are Ü Now" to "What Do You Mean?" to "Sorry" to "Cold Water" to "Let Me Love You" to "2U,"Justin Bieber is one of the most consistent purveyors of dance-pop in the past few, strange years in pop music. (Someone's got to do it while Robyn's off fucking around somewhere not releasing…


Moon Hyuna EU Erine Doong Doong

Sail Away From the World: Moon Hyuna and EU Erine's "Doong Doong"

This country is filled with anger, ignorance and hatred. And, at least for myself, it's becoming all too easy to fall down into a social media rage spiral for hours every day as of late — with seemingly no end in sight. Consider, if only for a fleeting moment, taking some time out from the world…

Lana Del Rey Love

Lana Del Rey's "Love": Romantic Reassurance in Times of Trouble

"Don't worry, baby..." The last time we heard from our Queen of Coney Island, she was dreaming away her life and lighting up by the sea on 2015's starry-eyed Honeymoon. Things are much different, in a variety of ways, in 2017. Intentional or otherwise, Lana Del Rey's first offering from her…


"Wings": The New Delta Goodrem Is, In Typical Delta Goodrem Style, Huge

Delta Goodrem, Queen of Australia (when the Minogue sisters are off-duty), has done it again. But before we get into all that, I think this is a really opportune time to point out something that's been weighing on my mind for years: There really should be a drag queen on the scene named Delta…


"Heartbeat Song": Kelly Clarkson Doesn't Miss A Beat (Single Review)

Grab your stethoscopes and hang tight to your defibrillator paddles, because Kelly Clarkson, born Kellegendary Clarkslay-Blackstopulent, is bringing our pulses up, up, up, up all night long. It's been one long and painful week o' teasers leading up to this moment (a moment like this, if you will),…
