Top 10 Songs of 2018

The Top 60 Songs of 2018

The year is almost over, and I still loathe lists. In fact, I sat down to do this about seven times and simply couldn't do it. So...I won't. And you can't make me! Instead, I'm choosing to take you through a very cool, urban and interesting journey through my favorite songs of the year in no real…

Janet - Miss Jackson, if you're nasty - is back...right...now. Three years after the release of Unbreakable, a mature collection of songs rooted in faith, family, politics and a healthy heaping of introspection - with some insomnia-inducing fun in between, of course - the 52-year-old Icon™ has…

Madonna Britney Spears Janet Jackson New Music 2018

Madonna, Britney & Janet Confirm New Music Is Coming

Bonjour from gorgeous, sunny Montreal. Normally, I wouldn't be updating whilst on an escapade (REFERENCE), but when not one, not two, but three Queens of Pop™ decide to provide an update on their upcoming music all at the same time, exceptions are made. Yes, that's right: Britney, Janet and…


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.")……


Janet Jackson I Get Lonely Velvet Rope

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

MuuMuse Reasons To Live 2018

Pop Goes The Future: The Many Reasons to Live for 2018

2017 might have been a tough one for many of us, but just as a wise woman once said after filming Evita: nothing takes the past away like the future. And so, as opposed to adding to the noise of the endless lists recapping the best parts of the past twelve months or dwelling on the…


Janet Jackson State of the World Tour 2017

Must Listen: 'Janet, Jam & Lewis: Deconstructing 30 Years of Music'

Janet — Miss Jackson, if you're nasty — is, deservedly, back on top of pop culture yet again in 2017. Following the kick-off of her State of the World Tour earlier this month, a continuation of her postponed Unbreakable World Tour with a socially conscious rebranding for Trump's America and a set…


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…


'Unbreakable': Janet Jackson Finds Freedom in Faith, Family and The Great Forever (Album Review)

Plush. It's rare to see a pop icon return, still thriving, thirty years deep into their career — let alone two in the same year. And yet, here we are in 2015, with two records by both Madonna and Janet Jackson, inarguably two of the most culture-shaking, game-changing entertainers of the '80s and…


"BURNITUP! (feat. Missy Elliott)": Janet Jackson's Arson Attack on the Dance Floor

Miss Janet's comeback has been a rather understated affair — the album is out in a week, after all — but each new song from Unbreakable proves that the music will speak for itself. While the legendary icon is busy tearing up stages across the country on her Unbreakable World Tour, she was kind…


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…
