  1. It's scary to see the danger that some of our favourite stars are in, and it's even sadder to realise that the severity of this situation could have been lessened by so much if we'd started taking climate change more seriously years ago. I'm keeping everyone in my thoughts and hoping that everyone stays safe!
  2. News of Australian rapper Iggy Azalea's new album Digital Distortion dropped about two years ago, yet still she struggles to release it. After her first "comeback" single 'Team', released in March 2016, flopped miserably on charts, things have only gotten messier. After a year of fans waiting for news about the album, Iggy released a mess of a single called 'Mo Bounce' which disappeared from charts even faster than 'Team'. The girl tried to sell the song by making a tragic music video of her twerking like crazy (Like girl, Miley invented twerking in 2013! Get the fuck over it!). However, 'Mo Bounce' wasn't the end of this downward spiral. We got another single called 'Switch'. The song itself was good. She aimed it towards her BRAZEELian fanbase by featuring Brazilian singing sensation Anitta. However, the messiest part of the single release was the promo. She recorded a good music video for the song, but due to the leak of the video's unedited version, she was forced to scrap it. Now Iggy has turned to Twitter to make things concerning her album even worse, stating that her label doesn't want to release another single from the album. She is still positive about releasing the album (probably, according to her, within the next month or so). Personally, this latest development just makes me feel even worse for Iggy. How do you feel about it?
  3. It's a new year in pop music, and already artists are gearing up for their 2017 releases. While we can never be 100% sure what's around the corner nowadays (we can thank Beyoncé and her surprise release strategy for that), we do already have some idea of how the next twelve months in music will play out if all goes according to plan - and from what we can tell, this year will be an even bigger year than the last when it comes to amazing new releases. Check out all you have to look forward to down below! Allie X - CollXtion II The release of Allie X's second EP, CollXtion II, has been a long and convoluted one thanks largely to an ill-advised plan to get fans involved in the creative process. Taking to Spotify, Allie announced her ɄNSOLVED initiative, in which she would post early demos and acoustic versions of her songs so that her fans to vote on which would make the ultimate album cut: we got singles 'Too Much To Dream', 'All The Rage', 'Casanova', 'Old Habits Die Hard' and 'That's So Us' that way. But fans preferred to be involved in other capacities, leaking dozens of songs that potentially have a place on the album in the radio silence that followed each single release. There's definitely enough material out there to make this EP an LP, but it remains to be seen if the project will ever be completed at all. Charli XCX - TBA Charli XCX had ambitious plans for 2016, hoping to release an EP, an album and a mixtape all in the same calendar year; although at the end of the day we only got the EP, the genre-defying Vroom Vroom project. The EP debuted a new sound XCX had masterminded with Tumblr It Girl and PC Music producer SOPHIE, a clash of 90s pop, J-Pop and trip-hop beats which was further showcased in her live performances for tracks like 'Girls Night Out', 'No Angel' and 'Bounce'. So far, though, the only sound we have of the album is the lead single 'After the Afterparty', which stepped away from the alternative sound she had been exploring for a pure bubblegum pop fantasy. Hopefully XCX will manage to tread the line between label desire and personal creativity successfully. Dua Lipa - Dua Lipa Since the release of her debut single ‘New Love’ back in August of last year and the blow up of her breakthrough track 'Be The One', Dua Lipa has captured the hearts of pop fans who prefer a little more substance from their tunes. Although she’s released six more singles and several collaborations since then, Dua’s album has been pushed back majorly from September of last year to February of this year as she focuses on breaking into the US market, so we’re still not sure if she has the chops to pull off a full-length album. Time will tell if she has what it takes! Fergie - Double Dutchess Fergie's second album has been a long time coming since the release of her first solo album, The Dutchess, back in 2006. We've had several false starts so far - from 2014's moderate R&B hit 'L.A. Love (La La)' to last year's hard-hitting hip-hop hit 'M.I.L.F. $' to the recently released reggae-inspired 'Life Goes On' - but from what we can tell Fergie has more than enough tracks for the album and photoshoots and music videos already handled, so a release seems imminent. Her first album was marked by it's variety, and we can expect more of the same here, with a range of collaborators from will.i.am to Mike Will Made It to Dr. Luke to Nicki Minaj all expected to contribute. Iggy Azalea - Digital Distortion Iggy Azalea may not be the most popular girl on the Internet these days, but if nothing else the girl knows how to write a fun tune. Her second album, the interestingly named Digital Distortion, was due for release last year but has been retuned since the commercial failure of the lead single ‘Team’, which only managed a position of #42 on the Billboard Hot 100. Despite that, other tracks (including the promo single 'Azillion' and leaked tracks 'Sexy' and 'Savior') have been confirmed for the album, along with registered titles such as 'Middle Man' and 'I Got That Boom Boom'. Since then, she's headed back into the studio to work with the likes of Zedd and Verse Simmonds on new tracks which are apparently inspired by her newfound sense of freedom and fun as a single woman. Hopefully she'll be able to recapture the magic of 'Fancy'. Katy Perry - TBA Katy Perry’s fourth studio album has been teased mercilessly, with multiple leaks of snippets, the stellar leaked song ‘Witness’ and stand-alone single ‘Rise’ all hinting at possible directions the project might take. If ‘Rise’ and her new nose ring are anything to go by, Katy might be aiming for a more dark-pop sound this time around; although with Max Martin, Savan Kotecha and Shellback all still in the mix for her recording sessions you can expect some more radio-friendly hits like ‘California Girls’ on the way as well. Kesha - TBA Kesha’s long-awaited third studio album was also on last years list of the most anticipated albums of the year, which should be some indication of how long fans have longed for this album. Back then, there was a single called 'Lover' released with Spookey Ruben, along with rumours of a lead single called 'Child of the Moon' which had a "Stevie Nicks-witchy vibe"; although lately Kesha's been working with a country music band called Yeast Infection. Thanks to the lawsuit between her and her accused rapist Dr. Luke which has been dominating most of her life in recent years, the album has been continuously delayed; but Kesha has apparently submitted over twenty two songs to her label for consideration and Sony itself has issued a statement saying that they “hope to share exciting new music with Kesha’s fans soon”. Take that with a grain of salt. Major Lazer - Music Is the Weapon Aside from a few bops that were released in the form of singles, Major Lazer's last album Peace Is the Mission was a bit disappointing in terms of tracklisting, featuring only eight tracks of which about four of them were listenable. Thankfully, the supergroup seems to be taking their time for their sophomore release, and they've already lined up a veritable whos who of pop music for collaborators. The album is set to feature vocals from Justin Bieber, MØ, Ariana Grande, Sia, Nicki Minaj, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Gwen Stefani, Iggy Azalea, Konshens, Benny Blanco, Tinashe, The Weeknd, Travis $cott, Bonnie McKee and Camila Cabello, just to name the works that have already been announced. Do we sense the album of the year coming soon? Rihanna - TBA (#R9) Rihanna’s #R9, the unofficial title fans have already given her upcoming album, seems to have been in the works since at least when the Bajan popstar dashed fans hopes for an ANTI re-relase by confirming she was instead working on something new. Despite this, Rih’s gone uncharacteristically quiet about the release and her planned collaborators, which suggests it might be further away than we originally thought. With upcoming roles in Bates Motel and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, however, we know Rihanna will still manage to keep herself busy in 2017. Tove Lo - TBA (Lady Wood Part 2) Tove Lo’s latest album, the inventively titled Lady Wood, was released this year to positive reception - its lead single ‘Cool Girl’ made it to our list of the top ten best songs of 2016, and the album itself made the cut as well - so it’s no surprise that she’ll be moving forward with plans to release a sequel to the album, which according to her has already been finished. Lady Wood was split into two parts - ‘Fairy Dust’ and ‘Fire Fade’ - and we can expect more of the same with this one, which will apparently be split into 'Light Beams' and 'Pitch Black'. Our only concern is one of variety - Tove’s already covered the highs and lows of love and drug addiction with her last album, and we’re not really sure where she’s going to go with this one. Still, given how talented of a songwriter she is (Tove has written songs for stars like Hilary Duff, Ellie Goulding and Girls Aloud), we’re pretty positive she’ll make it work somehow. Nelly Furtado - The Ride Nelly Furtado's been almost completely absent from the popular charts since the release of 2007's groundbreaking Loose, the album which spawned singles such as 'Maneater' and 'Promiscuous' and which made her a household name. Despite that, she's still been quietly releasing songs which range from the Spanish-language 'Manos Al Aire' to the hip-hop inspired 'Big Hoops' to last years collaboration with Blood Orange, 'Hadron Collider'. She's set to make a comeback this March with her album The Ride, which seems to harness a new experimental sound thanks to a partnership with producer John Congleton. The lead single 'Pipe Dreams' is already out: check it out here for a sample of the project. Zara Larsson - TBA When she's not talking about how much she hates men, Zara Larsson can occasionally release some pretty good pop songs: and hard as it is to believe given her age, she's released plenty of them, with a debut album and several EPs already under her belt. She's set to make her international debut this year with her new album, which already has the hits 'Lush Life', 'Never Forget You' 'Ain't My Fault' and 'I Would Like' to back it up. Apparently there's only one more single to go before the albums released, so you can expect this one to pop up on our radars pretty soon. And there's more... Also coming this year are albums from Bonnie McKee (the project may or may not be connected to her recent 'Stars In Your Heart' single, which was recorded several years ago), Kanye West (Turbo Grafx 16, which was announced as soon as work on his last album wrapped up but which has been put on pause as he recovers from his well publicised mental breakdown last year), Kiiara (her first full length album, led by single 'Dopamine'), Melanie Martinez (her yet to be titled second album which has already been completed), Rita Ora (her long-awaited second album) and Terror Jr (their first, which may feature songs 'Trippin' and 'heartbreaks'. Plus, they may not have been officially confirmed yet, but we've been dropped hints by artists like Aly & AJ, Kylie Minogue, Lana Del Rey and Nicki Minaj that new music from them is imminent. Which album are you most looking forward to in 2017? Let us know your thoughts down below?
  4. Music producer itstherascals posted a pic with Iggy in the studio via IG and tagged Dinah. they've also posted one with lauren before. Could this mean she's collabing with them on 5h3's lead single/album track or is it just Dinah collabing with Iggy for her upcoming album digital distortion?
  5. This is fucking rude tbh. Regardless of what you think of her music, I do think that she's a nice (if somewhat annoying) person and she's apologised for any of the bad shit she's said. This was uncalled for. Although, I was talking to @Dayfid about this yesterday and we decided that the guy was actually probably hired by Iggy to help her career. Seriously, all this girl needs is an Oprah interview or something where she can cry her eyes out and then the general public will love and support her again.
  6. It's a sad fact that cultural appropriation is everywhere in our society today. From everyday people on the streets copying the clothing of other cultures with no understanding of their true meaning (such as the white male chauvinist racist pigs who wear native American headdresses) to musicians stealing the styles, genres and techniques developed by minority groups (such as Paris Hilton making a mockery of the traditional European genre EDM), this disgusting form of racism has pervaded every aspect of our corrupt western culture so neatly that it's sometimes hard to even realise when it's happening! In case you blinked and missed these disgusting microaggressions towards POC's (that's People Of Colour for those uncultured Facebook users among you), we've set up this list so that you can stop protesting the legalised murdering of homosexuals in Nigeria and direct your rage towards the people who really deserve it - celebrities! Check below for the six most shocking cultural appropriations ever in the history of our world, but be warned - this material may be triggering to some. 6. Lady Gaga's Sinful 'Alejandro' The first entry on our shocking list is a three in one song and video combo. 'Alejandro', released in 2009 by Lady Gaga (or Lady Racist as we like to call her) immediately appropriates several cultures in the lyrics alone. "You know that I love you boy/Hot like Mexico, rejoice," Gaga says, perpetuating the stereotype of all Mexicans as attractive. Disgusting! The worst part of this is that she is not only stereotypes our Hispanic allies in Trump-like fashion, but she does so through an attempt at rap music, the traditional music of the African American diaspora born out of tribal influences and the pain and suffering of slavery. Yes, you heard right - yet another privileged cis straight white woman is appropriating from the black community in an attempt to look "cool". Gross! To top it all off, the music video even appropriates the clothing of other cultures. While it's okay that Gaga as a white person is making clearly mocking nuns clothing and the symbols of the privileged religion Christianity, the appropriation of Nazism, a strong culture with its own values and traditions, is frankly horrible. We can't wait to see the downfall of Lady GrossGross! 5. Emma Watson Wears Jeans Because her name is often mentioned in the same sentence as the UN, you might have been fooled into thinking that Harry Potter star Emma Watson was a good person. But if anything, the UN should really be placing a ban on Emma Watson and all her other magical friends! Not only does she flaunt her magic-wielding abilities in everyone's faces, but she's also contributing to one of the worst cultural appropriation trends in recent history by wearing jeans again and again and again! As everyone knows, Watson is an English actress who now lives in America - but as is common knowledge, jeans are not an English creation, meaning Watson has no right to appropriate them. Those intelligent enough to actually research culture know that jeans were created in Genoa, Italy, which is where their name comes from! By the seventeenth century, jeans were basically the public uniform of the people all over northern Italy. Emma Watson, who judging by her nose has no Italian heritage, clearly has no right to wear jeans and profit off the hard work of many hard working designers. Next we'll see her eating pizza! 4. Beyoncé Stars in Carmen: A Hip Hopera While we all know it's absolutely impossible for black people to be racist against white people, and that to criticise Beyoncé even in a minor way is to criticise the entire feminist movement, we have new proof that Beyoncé is racist that will likely shock you! The reason for this? Beyoncé isn't actually black! Just look in the above commercial for her feature film debut, Carmen: A Hip Hopera, which was made in 2001 when Beyoncé was still starting out in her career and which her team has tried to hide the existence of! You'll see a huge difference between the true Bey in this video and the Queen B we all know today. In the commercial, you'll see that Beyoncé has natural blonde hair and speaks perfect American - even though now she has black hair and speaks only in African American Vernacular and French. Shockingly, Beyoncé is actually a white woman who is trying her best to pass as African American! She dyed her hair black in order to fit in with the true Queens of Colored People, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. Poor Kelly and Michelle! 3. Katy Perry Tries Transracialism Katy Perry's appropriation is so innocuous that we didn't even realize how disgustingly racist she was for years. Our first tip off should have come from the fact that this rich white Christian lady chooses to dye her naturally brown hair black to mimic African American people, and that she changed her last name from 'Hudson' to 'Perry' to copy the amazing African American film auteur Tyler Perry! But we didn't put the dots together until Perry appeared in this clip for 'Part of Me', which is an exercise in pro-American propaganda and the suppression of people of colour. As you can see, Perry is clearly using the camoflauge look in this video, which to her may be a fashion trend but which to it's traditional users was a sign of resistance! Camoflauge was started by the French military in 1915 as they fought the evils of America: and as all French people are black, Perry is clearly copying their style for her own materialistic benefits. I, personally, am disgusted, and I have no idea why Perry hasn't been sent to prison yet. 2. Angelina Jolie Is the Spokeswoman for White Privilege Just the sight of privileged scum like Angelina Jolie looking so scornfully on poor disabled Syrian refugees makes me absolutely sick. I'm sure I don't have to point out the ridiculous hypocrisy in Jolie appropriating the traditional Syrian headscarf for her own fashion choice - culture is not an outfit, people! But the worst part is the rumours we heard of Jolie blatantly stealing culture while in Syria by actually attempting to speak Syrianese. I'm horrified. The idea that a privileged white woman would swoop into another persons country and actually try to communicate with them using a language that they created sickens me. I bet she didn't even give credit to the original creators of the language, the Syrianese people! The cherry on top is that even Jolie's first name is racist - Angelina is actually a Greek name! Rise up, Greek brothers and sisters, and let's take back what's ours! Let's ban Jolie from America and show her what it's like to really be a refugee! 1. Iggy Azalea's 'Fancy' Music Video Iggy Azalea is a rapper well-known for her hits like 'Fancy', 'Black Widow' and 'Flexin' & Finessin' (Feat. Juicy J)', but there's a dark side to every blonde Australian who spells her name out letter by letter. While Azeala's rapping skills cannot be matched even by blacks like Tupac, her videos are a different matter. Take the above clip for 'Fancy', in which Iggy struts around a high school setting wearing a series of provocative outfits. Sounds innocent enough, right? Wrong! Open your eyes, sheeple. Azalea has confirmed that 'Fancy' is a tribute to the 1995 teen drama film Clueless, which in itself is an adaptation of Jane Austen's novel Emma. The problem here is that Jane Austen is from England, a country historically discriminated against by both Australian and American people! Azalea is clearly appropriating her story from the downcast British and silencing the voices of her paler, tea-drinking brothers and sisters. The fact that British star Charli XCX is willing to collaborate on this song and has clearly internalized racism against her own country makes the entire situation even more saddening. What is the worst cultural appropriation you have seen lately? Do the people on this list deserve to rot in hell like we believe, or is it enough to simply strip them of their entire careers and livelihoods and send them back to where they came from? Let us know in the comments section down below!
  7. My favourite part is she says he's gonna lose a quarter of his dick, and then she says he's gonna lose half an inch... That lowkey shade tho!
  8. NBA player and Iggy Azalea's fiancée Nick Young is in hot water today after a video has leaked of him professing his love for a nineteen year old woman. The problem? Iggy is 25 years old. The video has made waves throughout the NBA fanbase today, after being filmed by Young's teammate D'Angelo Russell. It features Young, who doesn't seem to know that he's on camera, discussing his romantic involvement with a nineteen year old. It's currently unknown how the video was leaked, but Bleacher Report is suggesting that it spread through Twitter like wildfire after Russell shared it accidentally on Snapchat. Allegedly, the scandal has lead to a major feud in the locker room, with Russell's teammates isolating the player. Teammates are refusing to speak to him, and at a recent team meeting, no one would sit at Russell's table. Since the video's leak, Russell has publicly apologised to Young, saying in a pre-game interview, "I'm as sick as possible. I wish I could make things better right away but I can't". On the other hand, Young seems open to a reunion, stating "Me and D'Angelo handled the situation we have in a private matter. I think it's something we really do need to sit down and talk about." For her part, Iggy has publicly taken to Twitter to (perhaps sarcastically) thank the player for posting his video. Maybe it's just our cynical side, but the timing of this video release seems less than coincidental. Iggy appears to be on an apology tour after her negative publicity last year, taking to the airwaves last week to admit to her suicidal thoughts following the copious amounts of hate comments posted online, and there's nothing more redemptive than a scorned girlfriend. As so often happens on the Internet, public perception of Iggy has seemingly changed overnight since the video's leak, with the sympathetic comments flooding in a far cry from the hate she was receiving just a few weeks ago when 'Team' was released. What do you think of the video? Is the evidence damning enough for Iggy to call it quits, or should she try and hear Nick out? Let us know in the comments down below!
  9. Iggy got real during a Power 106 interview about contemplating suicide due to all the negative comments she heard from both the general public and the industry following her debut album. Later, on an Instagram post regarding the interview, Azealia encouraged Iggy to commit suicide. So I guess the real question here is: how can her fans justify their support of her? This is a sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic basket case and at this point I don't really think it matters how good or bad her music is. How does she still have fans?
  10. We're dangerously close to the end of the year, and as most normal people start to consider Christmas presents and family vacations, pop music lovers are getting ready for another big event in their calendars: mash-up season. First triggered by DJ Earworm way back in 2009 with his hit-filled track 'United States of Pop', epic end of year mash-ups have basically become a tradition in the pop world and are now something fans can look forward to every year, with the biggest recieving millions of views and extensive radio play. First started in 2010 by Daniel Kim, 'Pop Danthology' is one such mashup which often jams in dozens of your favourite pop songs to make a cohesive, danceable track. For the first time, 2015's 'Pop Danthology' is split into two parts a decision Kim says was dictated by the fact that "it has become increasingly more challenging to satisfy my fans and fit in all of their many favourite songs in my year-end mashup". Part one is just over four minutes long and features an impressive 45 songs, ranging from tracks by pop starlets such as Demi Lovato's 'Cool For The Summer', Hilary Duff's 'Sparks', Kelly Clarkson's 'Heartbeat Song' to sleeper hits like 'Fetty Wap's 'Trap Queen', Skrillex, Diplo and Justin Bieber's 'Where Are U Now', Maroon 5's 'Sugar', and Zedd and Selena Gomez's 'I Want You To Know'. Meanwhile, part two clocks in at just over five minutes, featuring a grand total of 37 songs including Adele's 'Hello', Ariana Grande's 'Focus', Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea's 'Pretty Girls', Ellie Goulding's 'Love Me Like You Do', Major Lazer, DJ Snake, and MO's 'Lean On', Rihanna's 'Bitch Better Have My Money', Selena Gomez and A$AP Rocky's 'Good For You', Silento's 'Watch Me', Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar's 'Bad Blood' and The Weeknd's 'Can’t Feel My Face'. What do you guys think? Will you be playing this track at your Thanksgiving dinners, or are the originals always the best? Let us know in the comments down below!
  11. It's been a bad year for Iggy Azalea, and judging by comments made by her label-runner and friend T.I., things aren't going to get better any time soon. Months after a poorly-recieved collaborative single with pop icon Britney Spears ('Pretty Girs' was promised to be a hit but ended up only making it to #29 on the charts), a cancelled headlining tour and ongoing accusations of racism and homophobia, Azalea has now been shunned by former mentor and inspiration T.I. In a recent interview with radio station Hot 97, the 'Live Your Life' rapper stated that his relationship with Azalea "took a bit of a rest stop", with the nucleus of the argument being shady comments she posted on Twitter about hip-hop icon Q-Tip. “After the Q-Tip thing… After I kind of had smoothed it over, like okay, ‘What is really meant to be said here is…’ After it was cool, everything was cool, and then they kind of came back and undid what I had just [accomplished],” the rapper said. “Imma be all the way real, I’m a loyal partner. If I rock with you I’m gon’ rock with you". T.I. isn't completely dismissive of Iggy's struggles though, explaining that many of her troubles were the result of bearing the brunt of people's "pent-up aggression" regarding her cultural outsiderness. "Any human being anywhere is going to have a hard time...It's very difficult to be the new kid and to be the butt of the jokes and to be the direction of all the negativity. I really do feel that they [Iggy’s team] just needed a little more time to adjust, which I feel they can do. They have the talent, they have the charisma." What are your thoughts on T.I.'s comments? Was it professional for him to call out Iggy live on air, or should he have discussed it privately with her? Check out the full interview below and let us know what you think after the jump!
  12. This is fucking embarrassing. I can't believe that this human being has worked with Britney.
  13. She has a point, but she should be grateful that Brit even knows her name to begin with. I also find it funny that she promoed the single as a true collaboration when it came out and yet now she's claiming it's a feature. Bitch needs to sit down.
