YouTube, Google Music Services Have Just 16M Subscribers [REPORT]

YouTube Music and Google Play Music have a total of just 15-16 million subscribers, according to two new reports; and growth has plateaued. The number includes customers who are on promotional trials. The company added 5 million music subscribers since YouTube introduced the new service last May, sources tell Bloomberg. Compared to the 1.9 billion people who use YouTube monthly or even the 100 million that subscribe to Spotify, 15-16 million paid subscribers must be a disappointment to...

Beth Carvalho (1946-2019)

Beth Carvalho, one of Brazil's most beloved samba singers whose zesty alto voice floated airily above the booming churn of the samba drum and driving samba guitar, died in Rio de Janeiro on April 30. She was 72. On her many albums dating back to 1969, Carvalho's lilting vocals contrasted neatly with the heavy samba, making it seem as if she were sailing speedily across a wind-chopped surface. Carvalho's passionate feel and festive delivery transformed the pulsating Carnival parade beat into th...

I Chopped Off 10 Inches Of My Hair To Reclaim My Curls

It was the day before a big job interview, and I checked everything off my to-do list: buy an outfit, print out copies of my resume, and stop by DryBar to get my natural hair "blow-dried straight with extra attention at the roots, please." Blowouts were a biweekly part of my hair routine — anything to keep my naturally curly hair "tamed" and "professional," as my Dominican family would say.But, of course, the day of my interview was one of the most humid days of the summer. My hair began to f...

Civilization's Oldest Shoe Gets A Stylish Update — Again

You may know by now that we really like to shop vintage. If it’s something that we could envision in grainy, sepia-toned photos and worn by fashionistas of yore, we’re here for it. We especially love shoes: the clean lines and quaint design of historical footwear is something we’re always on the hunt for. And when it comes to throwback kicks, it doesn’t get much more OG than the rope sandal — according to the Oregon Historical Society, the oldest dated “fiber footwear” is a pair of 9,000-year o...

Nicki Minaj Doesn’t Understand Camp But It’s Not Her Fault

The first Monday in May has come and gone but the internet is still critiquing the outfits our favorite celebrities wore on the Met Gala's pink carpet. While the curators of this year's exhibit arguably ignored black camp and centered whiteness, we were still eager to see what our favorite rappers would wear to honor the theme. Because as Essence magazine editor-in-chief Constance White told Refinery29 earlier this month, rappers love camp. “Rappers are interesting," White said at the time. "I ...

18 Times Celebrities Made The Ponytail Cool For Summer

Blame Gretchen Wieners' circa-2004 mandate, but for a long time, we treated wearing a ponytail like sporting our favorite pair of ratty sweatpants in public: lazy, low-effort, and only to be done once a week max. But, much like the Plastics' other style guidelines of only wearing jeans on Fridays and never rocking a tank top two days in a row, Gretchen's unflattering opinion of the humble ponytail was sorely misguided — and Hollywood's biggest stars are here to prove it.From Gabrielle Union and...

16 Pore Strips That Actually Work

If you had told us 15 years ago that we'd be sticking the equivalent of duct tape to our nostrils, forehead, and chin, then ripping them off and furtively examining the remains, we might have mistaken you for someone who was a little too into The X-Files.Yet, what we once thought of as beauty sci-fi, we now look to as a skin-care necessity: Pore strips are one of those inventions we didn't really know we needed, but now that we've experienced them, we don't think we can live without them.Once e...
