https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oo0P2rGBgOQ&ab_channel=thequeenpriyanka Few drag queens have managed to crack the popstar code like superstar Priyanka.

INTERVIEW: ACTOR KIT CONNOR BRINGS MUCH NEEDED AUTHENTICITY TO CHARACTERS QUESTIONING SEXUALITY ON NETFLIX’S BREAKOUT HIT “HEARTSTOPPER”

Despite growing media representation for LGBTQ+ people over the last decade or so, it is still increasingly rare to find a robust representation of bisexuality or questioning sexuality on television. What’s even rarer is representation that is not only healthy and poignant, but also not particularly interested in the trend of queer trauma porn, as…

ACTOR NATHAN KRESS ON SEASON 2 OF “iCARLY,” FATHERHOOD, AND HIS NEW OUTLOOK ON LIFE

Watching Nathan Kress as Freddie Benson all grown up on iCarly, the Paramount+ revival of the Nickelodeon sitcom of the same name from a decade earlier, should be a somewhat surreal experience for someone who grew up watching the show. But in all honesty, watching Freddie, along with the familiar faces of Miranda Cosgrove as…

KATHRYN DRYSDALE CHATS ABOUT HER ROLE ON NETFLIX’S “BRIDGERTON” FOR UNTITLED’S INNOVATE ISSUE

British actress Kathryn Drysdale is a quintessentially well-rounded performer. With acclaimed roles on the stage and screen in comedy and drama, Drysdale knows how vital it is to be versatile. Aside from her work opposite James McAvoy in the West End’s The Ruling Class and the hilarious royal family satire The Windsors, Drysdale is perhaps…

“JUMP, DARLING” SHOWS HOW FAR QUEER NARRATIVES HAVE COME, BUT DOESN’T QUITE STICK THE LANDING

I’ll say one thing for Phill Connell's indie film Jump, Darling straight away: it is frankly refreshing to see a gay-boy-in-a-small-town storyline that doesn’t take the To Wong Foo or Pricilla approach. That is to say, despite taking place in a small Canadian country town east of nowhere, the film’s flamboyantly queer protagonist does not…

STUART MARTIN HAS STORMED BIG AND SMALL SCREENS WITH HIS STARRING ROLES IN “ARMY OF THIEVES” AND “MISS SCARLET AND THE DUKE”

Many actors who start out working on television or the stage take the leap into film, but few do it in as big a way as Stuart Martin. After starring regularly on TV dramas like Medici and Jamestown, Martin made a huge splash in the wildly popular Zack Snyder comedy heist caper Army of Thieves,…

HIGHTOWN’S MONICA RAYMUND TALKS SEASON 2 AND HER PROLIFIC WORK BEHIND THE CAMERA

Having just finished out her role of Gabby Dawson on NBC’s Chicago Fire, actress Monica Raymund was looking for a change. That change would come soon than later with the lead role in the Starz original series Hightown, created and produced by Rebecca Cutter. Raymund stars as Jackie Quiñones, a National Marine Fisheries Service Agent…

INTERVIEW: RISING BRITISH ARTIST CODY FROST INTRODUCES HER CHEEKY AND GRUNGY STYLE TO THE WORLD WITH DEBUT EP “IT’S NOT REAL”

It’s a fairly difficult task to introduce yourself as an artist in just four songs, but rising British artist Cody Frost has accomplished just that with her debut EP It’s Not Real. Inspired by a host of personal experiences like mental demons, her upbringing and loneliness, the EP serves as a clear and concise introduction…

MICHAEL JUDSON BERRY MAKES HIS FEATURE FILM DEBUT FOLLOWING THE TIKTOK SUCCESS OF “QUARANTEATIME WITH MOIRA ROSE”

It’s been a tough year for us all, and like an overwhelming many of us, actor Michael Judson Berry took solace in the ray of light and positivity that is Pop Network’s Schitt’s Creek. So after popping on a cheap wig from a Halloween costume for an improvised video impersonating the ever iconic Moira Rose,…

ST. VINCENT’S “DADDY’S HOME” IS POIGNANT, UNCOMFORTABLE, AND ABSOLUTELY SUBLIME

If pop sensations like Miley Cyrus, Madonna, and more recently Billie Eilish are the mothers of mainstream creative reinvention, then St. Vincent is their indie equivalent. An unfair statement perhaps, since the genre-bending but always guitar-heavy music of Annie Clark has broken far more into the mainstream than many of her contemporaries. But the point…

PREMIERE: WILLA AMAI’S NEWEST SINGLE “NOT A SOLDIER” RE-EXAMINES THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LOVE AND CONTROL

At 17, you’d be hard-pressed to find an artist as young as Willa Amai with as much high profile experience. After being introduced to multi-platinum songwriter and producer Linda Perry at only 12 years old, Amai has spent the last five years under her wing, honing her already natural talent into the dynamic performing force evident…

CODY FROST EXUDES A POLISHED PUNK SPIRIT WITH NEW SINGLE “HIGH/BYE”

Fans of The Voice UK will surely recognize (and likely already follow) the pop talent that is Cody Frost. Since the now-17 year old made her blind audition debut on the program in 2016 and subsequently cemented herself as a fan favorite, she has honed her image as a bona fide electropop and punk artist.…

THE HITS (AND A FEW MISSES) FROM THE 2021 GRAMMY AWARDS

Let’s address the elephant in the room first, and for once we aren’t talking about the pandemic. The Grammys have always, and particularly in the last few years, been riddled with issues relating to racism, bribery, an out-of-touch academy, and an unspoken pay-to-play structure that deeply disadvantages many artists without the proper connections. Complaints and…

AUSTRALIAN ELECTRONIC TRIO CROOKED COLOURS KEEP US DANCING THROUGH LOCKDOWN WITH NEW SINGLE “NO SLEEP”

It's not often you hear a track that you seamlessly picture at either a crowded nightclub or your morning coffee shop, but for Australian dance trio Crooked Colors, that's just another track in their discography. The indie band, consisting of Phil Slabber on vocals and guitar, Leon Debaughn on keys and Liam Merrett-Park on Drums,…

LAUREN PATEL EMPHASIZES SOUTH ASIAN REPRESENTATION WITH HER FILM DEBUT IN “EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE”

When Lauren Patel attended an open call for Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, she thought she was just going for some early career audition experience. Little did she realize she had just walked into the room that would award her with her screen acting debut, and on the big screen no less. With limited acting experience…
