'Motivation': Normani Provides Hope for the New Generation of Pop Stars

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKXSh14svlQ Finally, the promise of a new pop supreme. Just last week, I was leaning heavy into my Bitter Aging Gay feelings and bemoaning the demise of the Pop Spectacle - apart from a rare handful of standouts and rising stars, obviously. Throw down your swords…

'Dance To This': Troye Sivan & Ariana Grande Sing the Sexy Praises of Staying at Home

In this Pride™ Month, the Gayest of Months, it's hard not to feel an immense amount of Pride™ for Troye Sivan: bb's really living out the whole twink-pop fantasy, just as hoped years ago. Bops about bottoming! Femme-y fashion statements! Explicit, rampant homosexuality! It's all happening. Our…


Ariana Grande No Tears Left To Cry 2018

ʎɹɔ oʇ ʇɟǝl sɹɐǝʇ ou sɐɥ ǝpuɐɹƃ ɐuɐᴉɹɐ

˙ʞɔɐq sᴉ ǝpuɐɹƃ ɐuɐᴉɹɐ Okay, flip back around. (That's what he said.) Ari's back - and right now, she's in a state of mind she wants to be in, like, all of the time. "No Tears Left To Cry" was probably the most anticipated pop single of 2018 thus far, so Gay Twitter™'s expectations were already…


The Top 100 Singles of 2016

Surprise: I didn't feel like dealing with the stress of putting my favorite 50 songs of the year in some arbitrary order as I've done for the past several years — so I put 100 songs in some arbitrary order instead. The ranking is whatever, because I think all these songs equally deserve lots of…

The Top 20 Albums of 2016

2016 is nearly over. I think I can speak of behalf of a majority of the public when I say: thank fucking God. Music was a crucial distraction in a year so frequently dominated by sorrow, anger and faded hopes and crushed dreams. The moodiness of the songs released throughout the year suggests that…


Dua Lipa Hotter Than Hell MuuTunes

MuuTunes - May 2016: Dua Lipa, Ariana Grande & My New Man, Maluma

The May 2016 MuuTunes playlist is here. Bangers™ — 3-ish minute pristine pop productions, just so we're on the same page here — are in short supply. Everyone is supes moody, depressed and Xanaxed out these days: Look at Zayn. Look at Rihanna. Look at Drake. Look at my favorite Kylie Jenner lip…


Dear Frankie Grande, Please Sit Down

NOPE. And your unsanitary, doughnut licking, America hating sister can take several seats, too.


Ariana Grande Does An Incredible Impression Of Celine Dion On 'Jimmy Fallon'

Wait: Did you know that "One Last Time"pint-sized pop princess Ariana Grande has never actually been a guest — like, a speaking guest — on late night TV until last night's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon? Weird, but true. In honor of what is now unofficially Pop Star On Pop Star Impression…


"Adore": Ariana Grande Makes Mumbly Magic With Cashmere Cat

Ariana Grande: Talented vocalist. Mortal enemy of enunciation. Norwegian producer Cashmere Cat already teamed up with everyone's favorite demon-seeing, left side only Kabbalah Kutie in the past with "Be My Baby" on last year's My Everything. And so, to return the favor, Ari's just supplied her…


Ariana Grande Is Pretty Chill About The End Of The World In Apocalyptic "One Last Time" Video

Found-footage isn't a very new concept in horror movies, from The Blair Witch Project to Cloverfield to [Rec] to the endless string of Paranormal Activity sequels. But as far as pop divas employing the tactic? Not quite as common. Ariana Grande's really gone after my horror-lovin' heartstrings…


Ariana Grande Has The Good Sense To Make "One Last Time" A Single

Ariana Grande's My Everything is an uneven kitchen sink full o' radio pop gems, horn-heavy bangers, throwback R&B grooves, bizarre LGBT-oriented kiss-off tracks and soggy bits of balladry. "One Last Time," however, is one of the album's best moments. And thankfully, she's selected it as the next…


The Top 20 Albums of 2014

2014 is nearly over. (Thank God.) Accordingly, it is now that special time of year when we take a look back at some of the best, most #blessed records released in the past eleven and a half-ish months and then proceed to hem and haw over the exact order of their perceived greatness. As always,…
