The Popdose Interview: A Cherry Red Records Roundtable

As the sun rises in London, Cherry Red Records releases C90 , a three disc compilation rounding up 63 indie rock gems that captures a pivotal moment in underground British music: 1990, the dawn of a new decade, where the Indie scene steadily gave way to Madchester (Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses), Shoegaze (Lush, Slowdive), and the fertile seeds that would later on bloom into BritPop (Pulp, Oasis, Blur). Now, most of the aforementioned big names don’t appear on this compilation, and that’s p...

BTS Tests Out a TikTok Release and Viral Challenge Combo for ‘On’ to Get the Fan ARMY Assembled

Leave it to BTS to keep challenging expectations of how the music industry works. On Thursday, the K-pop septet released a 30-second clip of their new single, “ON,” on TikTok, the social video platform that has helped launch and popularize songs like Lil Nas X‘s “Old Town Road.” BTS’s strategy here is novel: a representative for TikTok shared with TIME that this is the first time an artist has introduced a single using the short-form video app as the initial platform. It was also very savvy...

9 Curly Haircuts For When You Want To Go Short

One wrong clip can completely throw off the shape, or worse, leave your ends an inch shorter than you'd hoped to go.Bringing photo inspiration along to your salon appointment is always a good idea, but where do you begin with the countless images on Google Search and endless options hidden under hashtags? Start here, with all the visual inspira...

Is Milan Fashion Week Street Style The Hidden Gem Of Fashion Month?

In the marathon that is fashion month, Milan Fashion Week can often be dismissed as the water break between London’s lineup of indie darlings and Paris’s grand finale. In reality, though, with Gucci, Prada, Fendi, and Bottega Veneta finding themselves at the top of the fashion food chain these days, the Italian fashion capital has never been so influential. Last season, Milan’s schedule gave rise to some of the year’s biggest trends and must-have pieces, from a goth-grunge comeback à la Prada to...

All Of The Internet’s Best Beauty Sales Can Be Found Right Here

I’m going to be totally, completely honest with you: As a beauty editor, I haven’t paid full price for shampoo, moisturizer, or body wash in what could easily be four years. Heck, I get a lot of it for free. However, that doesn’t mean that I haven’t snapped up some on-sale Pat McGrath lipstick from Sephora's Black Friday promo, or a good nail polish shade while visiting the Target near my parents’ house.What exactly am I getting at?

The Whitney Houston Hologram In Concert Is… Kinda Creepy

The result, at least in what producers were careful to call a dress rehearsal, is intermittently convincing. The hologram gets some of Houston’s physical tics right, and the lip-syncing — if that’s the right word for it — looks pretty real; detailed visual touches like that rippling fringe aid in the suspension of your disbelief. It certainly helps too that the live band cooks. But… – Los Angeles Times

Police Believe Pop Smoke Murder Was a Targeted Hit, Not a Robbery As Initially Reported

The murder of up and coming rapper Pop Smoke may not have been a robbery gone wrong as initially believed, but in fact, a targeted hit.

These Topless Protestors Interrupted Bernie Sanders’ Nevada Rally With A Message About Milk

Sen. Bernie Sanders has been arrested in his share of protests over the years. The Senator from Vermont and current presidential candidate has been a vocal proponent of non-violent direct action in pursuit of justice — he even hired one of the activists protesting rival candidate Vice President Joe Biden as an Iowa caucus organizer. But on Sunday, Sanders found himself on the receiving end when a group of topless women activists with the Direct Action Everywhere (DxE), a group who objects ...

America Has As Many Victoria’s Secrets As It Has Malls. So — Now What?

Today, private equity firm Sycamore Partners bought a 55% stake in Victoria’s Secret in a deal that took the lingerie giant from a public company under L Brands to a privately held one. The deal comes after years of negative press surrounding the brand, including an inability to respond to what modern women want from their lingerie, advertisements and events that promoted unrealistic and male-set standards of beauty, a culture of misogyny and harassment, the dismal performance and problema...

Raven-Symone Addresses Rumors That She’s Transgender After Instagram Post Sparks Speculation

Raven-Symone wants everyone to know that she is NOT transgender, nor is she transitioning to become male. Speculation that the actress was transgender began last week for the most asinine reason: She posted photos wearing baggy clothes. And for those of you struggling to keep up, that’s not how it works. Raven shared photos over herself wearing an oversized sweatshirt and sweatpants on Instagram. And known for her eccentric hairstyles, her hair happened to braided in cornrows in the photos. ...

He Was One Of Sudan’s Most Beloved Musicians — Then He Went Silent For Decades And Was Even Thought Dead

In the 1970s and ’80s, Abu Obaida Hassan’s singing and skill on the Nubian tambour thrilled Sudanese listeners and even gained attention overseas. Then the imposition of a stern version of Sharia law and the 30-year dictatorship of Omar al-Bashir squashed the country’s music scene, and Abu Obaida withdrew from public view. In 2016, a Western record producer went looking for him and found him by sheer dumb luck, and with Bashir now ousted, fans are rediscovering Abu Obaida’s sound. – The Guardia...

Madonna's "Justify My Love" with only Lenny Kravitz's backing vocals is excellent mutant pop

"Justify My Love" is a 1990 trip-hop tune by Lenny Kravitz and Ingrid Chavez with spoken vocals by Madonna and soulful humming and moaning by Kravitz. Someone mixed a version of the track sans Madonna and with Kravitz's vocals brought to the forefront and the result is a compelling piece of "outsider pop," as described by bil-sabab on r/ObscureMedia. image: transformation of chrisweger's original photo (CC BY-SA 2.0)
