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...

Diana Ross Says She Felt “Violated” After Being Groped by TSA Agent at New Orleans Airport: “I Still Feel Her Hands Between My Legs…”

Diana Ross says that she was treated like a queen while spending time in New Orleans recently. But when she got to the airport, it was a totally different story.Ms. Ross performed at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival Saturday (May 4).

Ariana Grande Reshaped Coachella In The Image Of Her Generation

It was not a random choice for Ariana Grande to open up her headlining show at Coachella with “God is a woman;” it was a resounding shot fired. The festival has long been a place where rock music dominated, only recently shifting to some pop and hip-hop programming. It’s also long been a festival that has relegated women down the bill and into the DJ tents. Grande was the fifth woman headliner and the youngest ever, and it was a power move to start the song in a capella; it told audience that w...

Virgil Abloh Speaks Out About Louis Vuitton Michael Jackson-Inspired Collection

Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton's artistic director of menswear, has not been shy about the impact Michael Jackson has had on his life and his designs. In a new profile for The New Yorker, after writer Doreen St. Felix points out the poor timing of Abloh's adulation. Now Abloh has spoken out to belatedly condemn the widespread allegations that Jackson sexually abused young boys — including Wade Robson and James Safechuck, the subjects of HBO's shocking, talked-about new documentary Leaving Neverla...

KFRG 95.1/FM’s Vicki Pepper talks women in country music, who to look out for at Stagecoach and the station’s All-Girl Power Hour

Last month’s 61st Annual Grammy Awards ceremony didn’t just end up serving mostly as a celebration of women in music, but more specifically a celebration of women in country music. Singer-songwriter Kacey Musgraves was a big winner that night, taking home all four trophies for which she was nominated including best country album and album of the year for “Golden Hour.” Folk, Americana and alternative country artist Brandi Carlile also had a spectacular evening, picking up three awards for her al...

Earlier this year, Ross performed “Best Years of My Life” and “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)” during the 61st Annual Grammy Awards ceremony held at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 10 and her career was quickly recapped in a video narrated by Grammy host Alicia Keys.

Soul Serenade: Teddy Pendergrass, “Love T.K.O.”

Have you seen the new Showtime documentary Teddy Pendergrass: If You Don’t Know Me? I recommend it with a bit of reservation related to some rather dubious accusations that are thrown around by people who may, or may not, be reliable. The documentary tells the tragic story of a star who rose from humble beginnings to the verge of superstardom only to be disabled in a terrible automobile accident. But the film’s most important message and the one that makes it worthwhile viewing is that Pendergra...

Kathy Sledge on the 40th Anniversary of the Joyful Song, 'We Are Family'

None Four decades after it unfairly became a casualty of the "Disco Sucks" movement, maligned as a cheesy artifact of the era like high platform soled shoes and white polyester suits, Sister Sledge's 1979 album We Are Family remains one of the most solid soul collections ever put on wax. It arrived at a pivotal moment in the career of Debbie, Joni, Kim and Kathy Sledge, the four sisters from Philadelphia: after two albums (Circle of Love and Together) and one top 40 R&B single ("Love Don't Go ...

50 years ago, these were the No. 1 albums and music singles of 1969

In 1969 you either bought your music on black plastic circles and used a needle to scratch sounds out of the vinyl, heard it on the airwaves, most likely on a lo-fi AM radio, or, if you were lucky, saw your favorite bands and musicians live in concert. The best-selling album of the year, Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” plateaued at No. 4 on the charts, but that’s probably because the 10 albums that made it to the top were more uniformly solid, nearly all of them still considered classics....

Aretha Franklin: Context, Intersectionality, and the Rock Canon

None Let's face it, the established canon of popular music, especially from the mid-20th century on, is dominated by rock and white male artists: the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, and the Rolling Stones. How does Aretha Franklin fit into this canon, and what challenges can she pose to it, as one of the few women of color whom it has unequivocally embraced? Franklin fits within a prescribed framework of artists of color and female artists, as tied to specific contexts, including social mov...

How Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” Video Changed Pop Culture Forever: Revisit the 13-Minute Short Film Directed by John Landis

Michael Jackson's Thriller, the album, had spent the previous year at the top of the charts before the John Landis-directed video for the title track debuted in 1983. Two previous videos, for massive hits “Billie Jean” and “Beat It,” kept him on constant rotation on the fledgling MTV and other networks. It seemed that the “naïve, preternaturally gifted 25-year-old” couldn’t get any more internationally famous, but then, as Nancy Griffin writes at Vanity Fair, “it was the ‘Thriller’ video...

50 fabulous acts that have played The Forum in Inglewood over 50 years

To kick off its 50th anniversary celebration, The Forum had soul and funk band Earth, Wind & Fire perform atop a float that looked like a mini version of the iconic venue this year during the 129th Annual Rose Parade in Pasadena on New Year’s Day. Though the indoor arena officially opened on Dec. 30, 1967 in Inglewood, it was a multi-use facility and one-time home to the Lakers and the Kings, and didn’t host its first concert until Jan. 22, 1968. The venue has undergone several renovations and h...

Chic Were the Zenith of Disco

None One of the greatest losses I experienced as a result of sustaining injuries in 2012 was dancing. Spinal and feet damage have made it if not quite impossible then certainly much harder to graze a rug, never mind cut it. Listening to the glorious first three years of the Chic Organization's output, as presented in this box, forced me to confront that loss head-on. The best disco, and Chic were sometimes disco even though they transcended it, was highly sensual and absolutely thrilling to...
