Visiting a Plague Church during a Pandemic - The Feast of the Madonna della Salute, Venice 2020

Madonna della Salute 2020 - Photo: Cat Bauer (Venice, Italy) No blazing candles. No pontoon bridge. No balloons for the children, or sweets from the South of Italy. We can only imagine the discussions that went on as to how to celebrate the Feast of the Madonna della Salute this November 21st -- the day when Venice gives thanks for deliverance from the plague -- in a year restricted by a global pandemic.    Normally, thousands of Venetians pour across a pontoon bridge that stretche...

The Era of Gap’s Mass Appeal Is Over—But Specialization Could Bring the Brand Back

Twenty-some-odd years ago, few brands loomed larger in American fashion than Gap. Its signature logo hoodies were omnipresent at high schools and on college campuses, and Gap's marketing attracted big names, with stars like Sarah Jessica Parker and Madonna fronting its campaigns. But perhaps nowhere was Gap's influence more evident than at malls across America,...

Everybody Everybody (But One) Dance Now: The Diva Erasure Of Martha Wash Revisited

Beneath the platinum largesse, the ’90s were an ethical turning point for the pop music business. This was the decade where capital-A Authenticity became one of pop’s biggest artistic crises, a long-simmering culmination of the arguments around the distorting tropes of MTV, the legal and artistic arguments around sampling, and the underground scenes battling over the price of selling out. And while the story of Martha Wash and the lawsuits she filed 20 years ago don’t neatly overlap every one of...

Madonna’s ‘Don’t Tell Me’ Turns 20: Co-Writers Mirwais and Joe Henry Tell the Story Behind One of Her Most Underrated Hits

Twenty years ago this month, Madonna released “Don’t Tell Me,” the second single from her triple-platinum, Grammy nominated “Music” album. The song may be less remembered today than the title track from “Music,” but it arguably holds up even better, thanks not only to its minimalist production and forlorn lyrics, but also its fresh melding […]

Worst place, worst time: Trump faces virus spike in Midwest

By THOMAS BEAUMONT | Associated Press OSHKOSH, Wis. — Gabe Loiacono is the kind of voter President Donald Trump can ill afford to lose. He lives in a pivotal county of a swing state that is among a handful that will decide the presidency. A college history professor who last cast a ballot for a Democrat more than 20 years ago, Loiacono is voting for Democrat Joe Biden because he thinks Trump has utterly failed in his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. “President Trump still does not seem to b...

Empowerment pur: Spice Girl Mel C spricht über ihr neues Album „Melanie C“

Jede Epoche hat ihre ganz eigenen Superstars und Pop-Ikonen: Was Madonna oder Cyndi Lauper für die 1980er-Jahre waren, das haben die Spice Girls wohl in den Nineties für die Generation Y verkörpert. Klobige Plateau-Buffalos, Tops in schrillen Neon-Farben und natürlich Singalongs wie „Wannabe“ haben nicht nur damals den Stil eines ganzen Jahrzehnts geprägt; bis heute wird die britische Ur-Girlgroup als wichtiger Einfluss von Sängerinnen wie Billie Eilish, Lizzo oder Charli XCX genannt.

Artemisia Gentileschi, Praised and Reappraised

For the New Yorker, Rebecca Mead writes about the 17th-century Italian painter Artemisia Gentileschi, whose work has been growing in stature and popularity in recent years. Increasingly, Artemisia is celebrated less for her handling of private trauma than for her adept management of her public persona. Throughout her career, she demonstrated a sophisticated comprehension of the way her unusual status as a woman added to the value of her paintings. On a formal level, her representation of hers...
