Stephen Sondheim, 1930–2021

He lived 91 richly productive years, attended a live theater production eleven days before he died, enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner with friends the day before his death. Who can ask, as the Gershwin song goes, for anything more? But we fans are greedy: The death of the composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim, on November 26, after a long life of creative brilliance, leaves us wanting still more. So here’s a little more. A partial list of Sondheim musicals in chronological order, via Teepubli...

We’ve Got A File On You: Melanie C

It’s impossible to overstate just how important the Spice Girls were to pop music in the 1990s. The UK quintet’s 1996 debut album, Spice — which recently turned 25 years old, commemorated with a deluxe reissue called SPICE25 — went multi-platinum in 27 countries and sold 19 million copies in one year, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time. The Spice Girls were so monumental, their collective charisma so magnetic, it’s easy to forget that Melanie Brown (“Scary Spice”), Melanie Chis...

Madonna, drugs and helicopter-trained dogs: the dark, starry life of William Orbit

He was a techno-classical genius loved by pop stars from U2 to Britney. Then he was sectioned in his 60s after a drug-induced breakdown. The superproducer explains how he came back aroundThere was a point in the early 00s when William Orbit was poised to go interstellar. He was one of the great pop architects of the Y2K era, the Mark Ronson or Jack Antonoff of his day. He produced Madonna’s Grammy-sweeping Ray of Light, with its magnetic techno-lite, in 1998; Blur’s 13 a year later; and made hit...

„Like A Virgin“: Wie der Jungfrauen-Mythos Britney Spears & Co. zerstörte

Es war das erste Mal seit 13 Jahren, dass Britney Spears in der Öffentlichkeit über ihre langwährende Vormundschaft sprach. Im Laufe des 24-minütigen Statements erzählte der Popstar klar und leidenschaftlich davon, wie sie seit über einem Jahrzehnt unter diesem Vertrag litt – wie sie von ihrem Vormund, ihrem Vater Jamie Spears, dazu gezwungen worden sei, sieben Tage pro Woche durchzuarbeiten, gegen ihren Willen Lithium einzunehmen und sogar eine Spirale zu tragen, obwohl sie sich weitere Kinder ...

Loving Hillary

She’s never gonna make you love her. In fact, she’d probably be offended if you tried—she has grandchildren for that.     (Samantha Bee) During my brief and bitter foray into post-doctoral academic life more than a decade ago, I had a friend and colleague who swore by the mantra “the best ideas win.” I liked that, though I always worried it was a little naive. Not only did it not come to pass at the institution where we worked, but we were living through the presidency o...

She & Him – “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas”

She & Him, the retro pop project of Monster Of Folk M. Ward and actress Zooey Deschanel, are probably best known for their Christmas albums. A Very She & Him Christmas, their first foray into holiday music, turned 10 years old this week, and to celebrate its birthday, the duo are releasing a 10th anniversary deluxe edition of the LP featuring previously unreleased tracks from the same sessions. They shared a cover of Madonna’s “Holiday” from the reissue last month. And now they’re back with “It’...

Snail Mail – “Madonna”

Snail Mail is releasing her sophomore album, Valentine, next week. We’ve heard two songs from it, the title track and “Ben Franklin,” both of which made our best songs of the week lists, and today Lindsey Jordan is back with a third and final single, “Madonna.” It’s slinking and sensual and rife with religious language used to sort through a breakup. “Body and blood/ Lover’s curse/ Divine intervention was too much work,” Jordan sings in the chorus. “I don’t need absolution/ No, it just hurts/ We...

PJ Harvey, Sonic Youth, Madonna: the unseen archives of rock photographer Tony Mott

He’s partied with Queen. Tom Petty had his email. Now one of Australia’s most accomplished rock photographers has been digging through his negativesRock’n’roll photographer Tony Mott has led the kind of life that for the rest of us seems like a surreal dream. Travelling with Paul McCartney. Partying with Queen. He has photographed everyone from Prince to Rihanna to Marianne Faithfull. But when he talks about his work, what’s clear is his unbridled passion and affection for music and its creators...

Witness The Extreme Cringe-Levels Of Madonna’s Interview With Jimmy Fallon

Madonna has a long history of late-night talk-show hijinks, going back at least to the famous 1994 Letterman interview where she cussed a bunch of times and wouldn’t leave the stage. Last night, Madonna spent a very long time talking to Jimmy Fallon, who is probably the last person that anyone should ask to interview Madonna in front of an audience. She was there to promote her Madame X concert movie on Paramount+, but she was really there for some hijinks.

Warum sehen 30-Jährige heutzutage oft jünger aus?

Ich bin über 30. Die meisten meiner Freund:innen sind in der gleichen Altersgruppe wie ich. Es gibt da einen Kommentar, den wir alle sehr oft zu hören bekommen: „Du siehst nicht so alt aus, wie du bist.“ Oft folgt dann eine Erklärung à la: „Ich wäre nie auf die Idee gekommen, dass du den ‚30er-Meilenstein‘ bereits überschritten hast.“ Diese Bemerkungen sind immer als Kompliment gedacht – und so nehmen wir es auch auf –, aber die meisten von uns fragen sich danach dennoch immer: „Ist das wirklich...

Hear She & Him’s Previously Unreleased Cover Of Madonna’s “Holiday”

She & Him, the fashionably retro pop project of movie and TV star Zooey Deschanel and Monster Of Folk M. Ward, felt pretty central to the indie zeitgeist at their peak. But their most enduring legacy may be their Christmas albums, the first of which turns 10 years old next month. To celebrate the anniversary of A Very She & Him Christmas, the duo is releasing a vinyl reissue featuring previously unreleased tracks from those sessions. One of them is out today.

Britney Spears’ 30 greatest songs – ranked!

As she celebrates her engagement and fights for her autonomy, we celebrate the best of an artist who helped to define 21st-century popSpears previously flirted with dubstep on 2007’s Blackout, but it was Hold It Against Me that dragged the then-underground dance music into the mainstream. A decade later, and its blistering amalgamation of industrial EDM and saccharine pop melodies still feels every bit as audacious and innovative. Continue reading...

In control: why fetish fashion has returned

From Madonna to the Met Gala, the reappearance of bondage clothing suggests a reaction to lockdown, experts sayThis week, 40 plus years after Vivienne Westwood first opened her SEX boutique, Kim Kardashian and Madonna have both shocked with fetish-leaning outfits. Madonna appeared at the MTV VMAs dressed in an Atsuko Kudo latex ensemble, leather gloves and cap, while Kardashian wore a face-obscuring, all-black Balenciaga look at the Met Gala (an intentional nod to Kanye West’s recent style). At ...

Premature Evaluation: Halsey If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power

Halsey has always insisted they are an alternative artist, not a pop star. Maybe those labels are meaningless, but they clearly mean something to Halsey; the singer has argued their case passionately on multiple occasions, sometimes suggesting that gender bias was forcing them into a lane where they did not belong. Still, even as the distinction between “pop” and “alternative” came to feel increasingly moot over the past decade, Halsey kept working with pop professionals, and their music consist...

Gaz Coombes: ‘It felt good that life was speeding up’

As Supergrass return to festival stages, their frontman remembers his younger days, from the majesty of Spacemen 3 to love letters via mixtapesThis was a big thing for me: lots of recording off the radio. I’d wait for the chart show, and I’d know that Madonna’s Into the Groove was currently at No 3. I remember that pressured feeling of trying to hit record at the right time so you don’t get too much of the DJ introducing the track, and I’d build up these compilations. I did my own best-ofs – the...

Mykki Blanco: ‘I’ve helped to push open some closed doors. It’s a cool feeling’

The rapper has worked with Kanye and Madonna and blazed a trail for black queer pop. Their new mini album, they say, feels like the start of a new chapter…Mykki Blanco has just moved to Hollywood, and five minutes into our conversation, the 35-year old rapper’s beloved mother calls. “She needs to chill out. Like, I don’t work?” laughs Blanco. “She’s helping me pick out furniture and she’s gone crazy about the whole thing.” There is something pure about one of hip-hop’s most experimental figures ...
