Loreen, Eurovision Queen, Returns to Make a Mighty 'Statement(s)' at Melodifestivalen

As campy and absurd as Eurovision so often is, every now and then, the competition provides the platform necessary to launch an incredibly crucial act into the pop stratosphere. (Perhaps you've heard of ABBA.) Loreen, better known 'round these parts as Lorqueen, is one of those acts. The vocal…

MuuMuse Presents: The Top 20 Albums of 2012

Earlier this week, I posted my favorite singles from 2012. And now, it's time for the albums. Unlike last year, 2012 was not a very strong year for mainstream pop acts--at all. Most of the releases from pop's biggest players, including P!nk, Nicki Minaj, One Direction, Christina Aguilera, Ke$ha…


Amazing Things I'm Listening to From Sweden, Vol. 5

Fact: Everything Swedish is better than you. As Sweden’s pop ambassador to the interwebz (a title I made up for myself just now), it’s my job to highlight the very best pop music coming out of Sweden. (This is an easy job, given that Swedish pop music is always good.) In my ongoing series, Amazing…
