The Top 20 Albums of 2015

Well, here we go. 2015 has been quite a year — personally, professionally and pop culturally speaking. I lived! I loved! I laughed! Actually, I mostly cried, because like a certain Canadian songbird, I have all of these E•MO•TIONs. (FORESHADOWING.) Anyway! We're knee-deep in list season now, and…


Tinashe, Ciara and Jason Derulo Pay Tribute To Janet Jackson

There are few entertainers in this world who have attained icon status legitimate enough to warrant a tribute: Madonna. Cher. Heidi Montag. Arguably, however, no one deserves the honor more — at least right now — than Janet Jackson, the most consistently underrated, overlooked pop legend of them…


MuuTunes: May 2015

Oh, hello. It's been a while...but I'm here now. As promised, even with the whole new editor in chief at PopCrush thing, MuuMuse isn't going anywhere. Promise. It's just getting more personal! And more urban, too. I've really dived in headfirst getting to work bitch with the new gig, so…


"Dance Like We're Making Love": Ciara Gets Sexy With Dr. Luke For 'Jackie' Single Number Two

Ladies and gentlemen, the body party is once again in session. Ciara, B.M.F., is finally done terrorizing the ballerina community with her offensive "I Bet" pointe shoe work and getting the gays gagging with her "I Bet" remixes to move on to her second Jackie single, the Dr. Luke-helmed "Dance…


Ciara Reveals 'Jackie' Album Tracklist, Blesses Us With "I Bet" Remixes Featuring All New Vocals

Ciara is not playing around this era. Unlike the frequent stops and starts of 2013's criminally underrated Ciara, it's full steam ahead toward the release of CiCi's sixth studio album Jackie (out May 4). Last night, the ballerina community's #1 enemy unveiled the tracklist for her forthcoming…

Ciara's "I Bet" Video Is Pissing Off The Ballet Community

Ciara: Host of Body Parties, Lover of Goodies...and now, The New Queen Of Controversy. If you didn't catch it at the beginning of the week, CiCi dropped a gorgeous video for her latest single and/or melodic middle finger raised in the direction of Future, "I Bet," in which she plays a sexy, sad…


"I Bet" Video: Ciara Plays A Sexy, Sad Ballerina As A Fierce Fuck You To Her Ex

"I Bet," Ciara's latest single, is a very personal, very thinly veiled kiss-off dedicated to her ex, Future. (In case you forgot, it's the one that sounds like Usher's "U Got It Bad.") And now, it has a video. The plot is fairly straightforward: You take a ballerina, break her heart a million ways…


"I Bet": Ciara Is Having A 'Britney Jean' Moment With Her Upcoming Personal Album, 'Jackie'

Ciara is coming at us with her most personal album to date. In what is evidently a tribute to the enduring legacy of The Legendary Miss Britney Spears' indie-experimental mixtape Britney Jean, CiCi, creator of one of 2013's best, most overlooked pop records (including the missed hit of the year,…


Ciara And Dr. Luke Are Creating #Moments In The Studio, So Let's Remember Their First: "Tell Me What Your Name Is"

Let it be known now and forever: Ciara's Ciara remains one of the most criminally overlooked pop records of 2013, and "Overdose" remains the best should-have-been-a-single of the year. That being said, the R&B-pop princess (and brand new mommy to baby Future Jr.!) is already back at work in the…

MuuMuse Presents: The Top 20 Albums of 2013

It's the most wonderful time of the year again: A time to bicker, moan and fight about the year's most high profile releases and underrated gems. That's right — it's list season! Looking back, 2013 may very well go down as the Year of the Underdog in pop music. There's no doubt that, across the…
