Hikaru Utada & Shiina Ringo Reunite With 'Roman to Soroban'

The last time Hikaru Utada and Shiina Ringo got together, they were taking a trip into outer space for a brief, but necessary two hour vacation on Fantôme's "Nijikan Dake No Vacance" in 2016. Having returned back down to Earth - or, more likely, arrived at some far-off planet accessible only to…


Lana Del Rey The Greatest Music Video

'Fuck It I Love You' & 'The Greatest' Video: Lana Del Rey Signs Off for Summer (And Maybe Forever)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrSX_OcpeJg&feature=youtu.be And if this is it, she's had a ball. Sorry, #HotGirlSummer: Sad Girl Fall is rapidly approaching. Lana Del Rey might currently inhabit our world, but it doesn't feel like she actually belongs in it, like a depressed…


Miley Cyrus Mother's Daughter Music Video

'Mother's Daughter' Video: Miley Cyrus Femmes the Future

Miley Cyrus is, in my humble and oft-dragged opinion, the closest to being "the Madonna" of the '00s Disney Girls. That's not to start an exhausting Stan War in the comments section, or take away from her own unique brand of artistry. It's just that Miley shares some of the same characteristics as…


Madonna God Control Music Video

'God Control' Video: Madonna's Triggering Statement About American Life

Wake up. Wake up. Wake up. Wake up. Wake up. Madonna's tackled countless points of social contention throughout her over thirty year-long career as the Queen of Pop™ - religion, racial injustice, gender inequality, sexuality, war, power, greed, corruption. You name it, Madonna's probably sung and…


Utada Hikaru Laughter in the Dark Tour

Hikaru Utada's 'Laughter In The Dark' Tour Hits Netflix

And she wrote the English subtitles herself. It's such a surreal feeling to even write this, but it's real: Hikaru Utada's Laughter In The Dark 2018 Tour special is now available on Netflix, globally, as of Wednesday (June 26). This marks her first-ever Japanese concert special to be made available…


Kazaky Push

'Push': Kazaky, the High-Heeled Ukrainian Boy Band, Returns

You hear that? The faint click-clack, click-clack of a troupe of muscly Eastern European men somewhere not so far off in the distance? Yes, that's right: Kazaky is back. The Mortal Kombat-gone-gay dressed, high-heeled Ukrainian hotties have been around for a while now. I first wrote about them all…


Robyn's 'Ever Again' Video Is a Triumph

Want to know how to tell if someone's a real star? Give them a mic stand and see what they do with it...or to it, for that matter. Queen of Swede-Pop™ Robyn's signature video style is, for the most part, an intensely intimate, tightly choreographed affair. What comes to mind first? Her one-take,…


Robyn Honey Video

'Honey' Video: Robyn Keeps Dancing, But Not on Her Own

Honey is one of my favorite albums of the year. If I get around to doing a "Best Albums of 2018" list - which I should do, even though the Blogger's List (and the blogger himself) feels so, so ancient at this point - then Honey will wind up in my Top 10. Easily. I get that the album doesn't have…


Rosalia Bagdad Video

'Bagdad': Rosalía Quite Literally Cries Herself a River

"For all those who were heartbroken and drowned in their sorrow." Rosalía is, without a doubt, one of my favorite discoveries of 2018. I haven't written anything about her until now on MuuMuse, but I did hop in a car with her as she made her way from her record label to a meeting at YouTube…


Kylie Minogue Musics Too Sad Without You

'Music's Too Sad Without You': The Marvelous Melancholy of Kylie Minogue

Silence is all I can listen to now... The Golden era just keeps on truckin'. However, as opposed to delivering yet another glittery, cowboy boot stompin', homosexual line dance-ready burst of energy, Kylie Minogue's opted to bring down the BPM (REFERENCE) with one of the album's most melancholy…


Pabllo Vittar Problema Seu

'Problema Seu': Pabllo Vittar Feels Her Brazilian 'Toxic' Met Gala Fantasy

Pabllo Vittar, Brazil's Premiere Drag Queen-Turned Pop Star, Lover of Diplo and Friend of Anitta, is back for more. And this time, vai passar even mal-er. "Problema Seu" is the latest bop served up by the (currently) neon yellow-haired Brazilian LGBTQ pioneer, just ahead of the forthcoming release…


Bebe Rexha I'm A Mess Music Video

'I'm A Mess': Bebe Rexha Is at Her Best When She's a Mess

As an early adopter Rexhar (I first wrote about her back in early 2014, and we had our first chat later that summer), it's been quite something for me to watch Bebe Rexha's career shape-shift over a half decade or so. From songwriting queen - best known for Eminem and Rihanna's "The Monster," plus…
