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…

WHAT SHOULD HAVE SCORED 2021 GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATIONS ACCORDING TO GEN-Z AUDIENCES

With the announcement of the 2021 Golden Globes nominations, the largely predictable round of backlash surrounding the Academy’s choices has officially begun. Awards season is all well and good for us pop culture junkies, but over the last couple of years it has become increasingly apparent just how behind the times the committees that select…

SOPHIE WAS A PIONEER IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD

On Saturday morning, groundbreaking experimental pop artist and producer Sophie Xeon, more known mononymously as SOPHIE tragically died in what her publicist described as a “terrible accident.” According to the official statement, “true to her spirituality, [SOPHIE] had climbed up to watch the full moon and accidentally slipped and fell. She will always be here with…

ALL THE HIGHLIGHTS FROM JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS’ INAUGURATION

Wednesday, January 20, 2021 was a historical day for America. The United States government inaugurated our 46th president, Joseph R. Biden, who garnered the most individual votes of any candidate in history, and left behind the voice of a leader who in four years spent more time dividing the nation than progressing it. Kamala Harris,…

THE MOVIES WE ARE MOST EXCITED TO FINALLY SEE IN 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic may not be over yet, but with the vaccine rollout officially underway, we can at least be permitted to feel a quiet creeping hope for the year to come. With the novel coronavirus changing the movie industry as we know it in 2020, the biggest blockbuster films on everyone’s radar have been…

THERE’S STILL A LONG ROAD AHEAD FOR THE SMITHSONIAN’S TWO NEW MUSEUMS DEDICATED TO WOMEN AND LATINX

The two newest upcoming additions to the Smithsonian, The National Museum of the American Latino and the American Museum of Women’s History, will be fantastic strides in the soon-to-be Biden Administration’s slow but assuring work towards widespread cultural education and acceptance. In December 2020, Congress officially approved legislation that will create the two museums, backed…

FOLLOWING THE “WOMB RAIDER” EXECUTION, TWO DEATH ROW IMMATE’S LIVES CAN BE SPARED IF JOE BIDEN ACTS QUICKLY AFTER INAUGURATION

On the morning of Wednesday January 13, 2021, at 1:31am, the first federal execution of a woman took place in the United States since 1953. The woman, Lisa Montgomery, was given a lethal injection in Terre Haute, Indiana, where she was being held in the town’s prison complex. In 2004, Montgomery drove over 170 miles…

THE ART WORLD IS NOT AS PREPARED AS IT SHOULD BE FOR BREXIT

The never-ending story of Brexit is seemingly hitting it’s next significant landmark. Four and a half years since Britain officially voted to leave the European Union in May of 2016, the two parties have reached an agreement, which was subsequently accepted by Parliament, regarding upcoming trade and travel guidelines. On Friday, January 1, 2021, these…

On Tuesday, December 29, 2020, the French Academy of Fine Arts officially confirmed the death of renowned Italian-French designer Pierre Cardin. He was 98 years old.

THE TOP 10 ALBUMS OF 2020

Despite, or perhaps because of, the tumultuous and emotionally taxing behemoth that has been 2020, this year has actually been pretty good for music. In the wake of a global pandemic, a reckoning of racial justice reform, a slogging American presidential election, and a dozen more grievances, musicians found themselves affected by 2020 in multitude…

THE BEST, WORST AND JUST PLAIN MEH NETFLIX ORIGINALS OF 2020

Netflix has a bit of a problem. When the streaming service first entered the world of original content in the early 2010’s with shows like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, they quickly established themselves as synonymous with the notion of “quality television” (we don’t need to talk about Hemlock Grove). Like…

WE ALL KNOW THE GRAMMYS ARE OUT OF TOUCH, SO WHY DO WE STILL RAGE OVER SNUBS?

Another year, another round of ire and backlash over the Grammys. Hardly fertile ground, even for 2020. Last week, the official 2021 Grammy nominations were released, and instead of the usual communal “meh” or “huh?” that has typically followed the announcement in the last half decade or so, this year people are angry. Yet again,…

WITH TRUMP GONE FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, WILL POP MUSIC BRIGHTEN UP AGAIN?

It’s been hard to ignore the explosive 2020 election, even for many non-Americans. Tight races in over a half dozen battleground states, baseless claims of voter fraud by the Trump administration, and slew of weak lawsuits challenging the result that have almost collectively (and gratifyingly) gone nowhere. And that’s just the last week. As for…

THE 2020 ELECTION: WHERE WE ARE, HOW WE GOT HERE, AND THE MANY PLACES WE MAY GO

The 2020 Presidential Election results need no real introduction, but just in case you are one of the many still outstanding apolitical Americans who still bafflingly don’t see the value in your vote, here’s one anyway. On Saturday morning, after what seemed like the longest week of 2020 (and that’s saying something), major news outlets…

EMERGING UK ARTIST BELLE SCAR TAKES US ON A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME AND SPACE ON NEW SINGLE “THE EERINESS”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40qbYuh9SKs&feature=youtu.be&ab_channel=BelleScar If we could briefly describe the philosophy that embodies the work of London-based singer-songwriter and performance artist Belle Scar, it would be the old adage “its not about the destination, but the journey.” The Canadian-born artist, real name Geeta, has just as much of a visual identity as sonic one, crafting elaborate and avant…

BEN CHANDLER ELEVATES THE WORLD OF BEDROOM INDIE ROCK WITH HIS SWEET NEW TRACK “STRAWBERRY CANDY”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0peDrFlTLA It’s not often that the worlds of modern pop mix so tastefully with those of classic rock and contemporary hip-hop, and even less frequently that you hear the results described as “heartwarming” or “low-key.” But with his newest single “Strawberry Candy,” up-and-coming artist Ben Chandler manages to marry all of his varied influences together,…

THE DEFINITIVE LIST OF GEN-Z FASHION FAVS AND HOW THEY ARE INFILTRATING THE WORLD OF HIGH FASHION

With every generation comes a new set of trends, even if that list sometimes includes trends from generations past. But beyond the typical fashion fads like tie-dye and tiny glasses, the young people of Generation Z have expanded their wardrobe’s horizons to include brands and individual garments that take philosophical stands; that represent something beyond…

K-POP HAS NEVER BEEN BIGGER, AND BLACKPINK IS AT THE CENTER OF IT ALL

K-Pop girl group BLACKPINK’s debut Korean-language LP, aptly titled THE ALBUM, broke the record for first week sales by a Korean girl group, selling 590k records in a single day and surpassing 1 million pre-orders. Forbes even projects the album securing it a No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 charts. With four unique deluxe…

THE SHOW WENT ON AT MILAN FASHION WEEK WITH DIVERSITY AND BODY POSITIVITY REFRESHINGLY FRONT AND CENTER

Against the odds of a global pandemic, Milan Fashion Week went predominantly as planned. Italy, one of the biggest initial hotspots for the COVID-19 virus earlier this year, the first European country to impose a lockdown and at one point the country with the most coronavirus-related deaths, certainly demonstrated its ability to recover better than…
