Genre: Dance-pop, electro Sounds like: Ke$ha, Uffie, Jessie and the Toy Boys Meet Kay, nee Kay Kristin Boutillier, the newest electropop princess on the block who already seems poised for world domination. Kay first popped up on my radar just over a year ago, when her glitchy, ambient…


Disappointment, Televised Live: The Nominations for the 53rd Annual Grammys

It's that magical time again! A time when--year after year--music enthusiasts of all walks of life come together to scratch their heads in complete and utter befuddlement while sifting through bizarrely incomplete, lackluster lists of nominees for the biggest categories of the most coveted award…


MuuMuse Live Tweets (Almost All Of) The 2010 American Music Awards

The 2010 American Music Awards aired live tonight. I live-tweeted the event. Well, most of it. (The Walking Dead came on at 10--I do have my priorities, after all.) So, rather doing a rather drawn-out summary of the affair, I figure I'd just regurgitate what I just said--except with pictures and…


Wynter Wonderland: A Night with Wynter Gordon (The First Dance EP Release Party and Showcase at Splash)

Between the two glasses of complimentary champagne and Wynter Gordon grinding on my lap for a photo, I slowly began to wonder: "What is my life?"

Speaking of Guilty Pleasures: A Very Thorough X Factor Performance Night Review (October 23)

Get your tits out, everyone--it's time for another round-up of the X Factor performances!

MuuMuse Approved Tracks for the Week of August 1, 2010 5. Siobhán Donaghy - Goldfish On the train ride home from the city after having seen Robyn perform live, I needed a musical come-down in the worst of ways. Cue ex-Sugababes crooner Siobhán's second studio effort, Ghosts--an insanely…


Introduucing...Kristine Elezaj!

This is Kristine Elezaj. She is an up-and-coming 24-year-old pop artist. According to her official biography, Elezaj is "fierce, fun, edgy, and brave," which I believe accounts for approximately 74.3% of the total ingredients necessary to concoct the Perfect Pop Star. As far as comparisons are…


MuuMuse Analysis: The 2010 Grammy Awards

It's that time again: The Grammy Awards, a time when pop dreams are crushed by a barrage of country stars winning awards chosen by really old, really privileged record executives that haven't been in touch with the consumer market since 1983. Since I didn't really feel like doing a massive…


Introduucing...Richard Jay!

Kids these days. It seems everywhere you look, there's another teen cropping up on the interwebz poised for global domination: Daisy Dares You, Justin Bieber, Sky Ferriera. Don't they have anything more important to do, like go to prom or start learning to drive or something? No matter. Here comes…
