ART KIDS: Dylan Gebbia Richards saves me from emo-hipster lifestyle

Lately, I have been catching myself wearing all black get-ups and lingering on dark outdoor porches alone for no apparent reason.

American boy doll? Cover-boy? The girl world is finally becoming more inclusive

Every year on Christmas morning, a younger me waited at the top of the stairs. My legs, restless with excitement, were ready to bolt down the stairs to see what Santa left underneath the tree. I always hoped it would be a new American Girl doll. From historic dolls to “girl of the year,” I did...

Art Kids: Beyoncé’s swaggy little secret

Everyone knows Beyoncé is having twins; this is an unavoidable piece of knowledge. If I had stayed in bed all day with my hands over my ears and no contact to the outside world while she announced her big news, I would still know that she is expecting. What people are not aware of is...

“The Young Pope” is actually a Kanye biopic

When Kanye West saw “The Great Beauty,” what many consider Paolo Sorrentino’s magnum opus, he knew that Sorrentino was someone he would work with at some point in his life. “I just felt the main character. What was his name again? I just felt him, man,” Kanye said about the film. “All the extravagant shit,...

The 2016 Hip Hop Superlatives

Superlatives are not just for seniors anymore. The rappers on this list were relevant (or irrelevant) enough this year to land them a spot in the 2016 Hip Hop Superlatives by yours truly.

Sure, they paint their faces and wear big shoes, but the majority of the population see clowns as entertainment,...
The many faces of Mac Miller

The many faces of Mac Miller

The first thing I thought after hearing Mac Miller’s new album was, “How many times does he mention pussy on this album?” (Seven. Well, eight if you include “clitoris.”) “The Divine Feminine” was the furthest from his original sound I have heard from Miller. It has been a long and interesting journey – from the...

*Takes a seat at the table, sips lemonade*

“Bein’ a woman & bein’ colored is a metaphysical dilemma I haven’t conquered yet. Do you see the point, my spirit is too ancient to understand the separation of soul and gender. My love is too delicate to have thrown back on my face.” Poet Ntozake Shange, once said these words in her play (now...
