Whitney Houston, "It's Not Right, But It's Okay" (Borneland Remix): MuuMuse Premiere

Remember Borneland, the Copenhagen-based duo that brought us that unbelievably fierce reworking of Destiny's Child's "Bug A Boo" at the start of 2014? They're at it once again...and this time, they're taking on the ultimate icon: Whitney Houston. The remix puts the late legendary diva's vocals at…


Jessie Ware: Devotion (Album Review)

While Adele continues to conquer the world with her record-breaking 21, an honest collection of bluesy, rollicking odes to heartbreak and sorrow (which is still the best-selling record of 2012, despite being released last year), England may well have just found themselves their next humble…


Thank You, Whitney

Earlier this evening, the Associated Press confirmed that Whitney Houston died at age 48. Whitney's death is no more or less tragic than that of any one person's struggle with addiction, but the fact that she was and forever will be a musical icon made her own inner demons as universally known as…


Now Streaming: Listen to The Official Remixes of Beyonce's "End of Time"

As we all know by now, Beyonce's been churning out singles from 4 in radio, remix and video form for the entire year. It's been a bit exhausting, and at this point, I'm fairly certain that the entire album's been released in one way or another. Well, except for MY FAVORITE SONG ON THE ALBUM…


Beyoncé: 4 (Album Review)

If you're looking for Sasha Fierce, don't bother: She's gone. Well, not entirely--she's certainly still there twerking her hips above the militant beat of "Run The World (Girls)" and the frenzied horn-filled club bounce of "Countdown," but for the most part, the divalicious alter ego of one of the…


Lady Gaga: Born This Way (Album Review)

On Saturday night, Lady Gaga sat spread eagle atop a delivery table on the stage of Saturday Night Live, belting out "Born This Way" while grasping her very pregnant prosthetic belly before flooding the delivery table with goo and glitter. "My water just broke," the 25-year-old superstar tweeted…


Lady Gaga Launches GagaVille with Release of 'Born This Way' Track, "Marry the Night"

Earlier today, Lady Gaga launched GagaVille, the much-hyped extension to Zynga's life-ruining, Facebook feed-spamming time killer, FarmVille. Featuring all new Gaga-licious items and exclusive giveaways, the launch kicked off with the release of upcoming Born This Way track, "Marry the Night." To…


Sky Ferreira Releases "Sex Rules" as Debut Single off of Upcoming EP, 'As If'

It's been a minute since we last heard from indie-pop teen darling Sky Ferreira, whose debut album was left hopelessly hanging in the lurch after the tepid response to lead US single, "Obsession." Luckily the burgeoning songstress is still giving it a go with the release of one of my all time…


Leave U: Getting Kandi Koated with Kandi Burruss

So since I've been bumping Real Housewives of Atlanta star/former Xscape member Kandi Burruss' new record Kandi Koated for some time now, I'm thinking it's high time for a Muusing. Although I admittedly fell asleep listening to the album for the first time during a train ride into New York last…


Nadine Coyle: Insatiable (Album Review)

Nadine Coyle has an insatiable ego. After rejecting a major label bid war in favor of an exclusive distribution deal at Tesco, reportedly declining an X Factor performance invite, and forgoing all contact with her (former) Girls Aloud band members for almost a year, Nadine Coyle has made it a…


She Can Do It Better: Interview with Matisse!

A few weeks ago, I introduuced Matisse to MuuMuse, the up-and-coming dance floor vixen (and former member of sister act Brit & Alex) responsible for the summer smash, "Better Than Her." (LISTEN) The singer is currently busy cooking up the contents of her debut album due out in Spring 2011,…


Guest Muuse: Sam Lansky's "Fame Fatale: The Rise of Sky Ferreira"

So, this is something new and interesting. The night before my interview with Sky Ferreira, I received a vaguely mysterious e-mail from MuuMuse reader Sam Lansky with an attachment entitled "Fame Fatale." The e-mail suggested that the attached may assist me in preparing for my interview. As soon…
