Benee’s “Supalonely” Was A TikTok Smash Even Before The Pandemic Made It Super Topical

What makes a song go viral on TikTok?

Are Shinedown America’s Most Popular Rock Band?

Filter bubbles are real. Particularly in the social media era, we are all trapped inside a likeminded feedback loop of our own making. I think we all recognize this on an intuitive level, but sometimes a reminder that you inhabit a bespoke cultural silo will come along and smack you in the face. Recently I … More »

The BET Awards celebrate 20th anniversary amid pandemic and protests against systemic racism

Back in April, BET Networks’ president Scott Mills and the producers of the annual BET Awards recognized they’d have to cancel its popular four-day BET Experience and free fan fest at L.A. Live due to the continued spread of coronavirus, but they were adamant that the actual awards ceremony would be presented in some capacity. The crew swiftly pivoted the BET Awards, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, to a virtual broadcast without a live audience. The show will be hosted by comedi...

20 Years Ago, Eminem’s “Stan” Predicted The Dark Side Of Modern Fandom

Eminem must have been trembling. It was 4 o'clock in the morning sometime last month, and he'd been awakened by a blaring alarm in his Detroit-area home.

The Benevolent Celebrity Livestream Parade Is So Bleak

Livestreams suck. Livestreams have always sucked. There are exceptions -- when your favorite artist logs on, when something incredibly charming and unexpected happens -- but in general, watching musicians perform onscreen from home is underwhelming and sometimes depressing. By necessity, the format has become a mainstay of the music industry during the coronavirus pandemic, which … More »
