Madonna Got Whiplash From Her Fall At The Brit Awards

After Madonna fell from a stage riser during a Brit Awards performance earlier this week, the internet had a whole lot of fun with her. But some things are worth considering here.

Madonna – “Iconic” (Feat. Chance The Rapper & Mike Tyson) & “Veni Vidi Vici” (Feat. Nas)

It's impossible to describe the roll-out of Madonna's forthcoming record, Rebel Heart, as anything but completely ridiculous. First the record leaked, then Madonna caught heavy flak on the web for regramming fan-made art that depicted black civil rights leaders' faces in the style of her album cover, and a few weeks ago we learned… More »

Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tracklist Includes A Song With Chance The Rapper And Mike Tyson

Madonna revealed the full tracklist for her new album Rebel Heart on iTunes today, and there's one especially curious inclusion.

The Week In Pop: Forecasting 2015’s Event Albums And Rising Stars

Take it from someone who started a weekly pop column last year: 2014 was a bad year for pop music. I write this knowing that there are still many self-satisfied blowhards in the world -- sometimes even in the comments section of this very website! -- who will tell you that every year is a… More »

Madonna's reportedly been working on a new album for a while now, but she hasn't even announced the album yet. It was probably going to come out next year. But now, who knows.

The Week In Pop: The Cold Hard Facts On The Year In Pop

Now that December is upon us, publications are starting to roll out their year-end lists. In the preface to our own countdown of the year's best albums, we noted how subjective that pursuit is, but there is a more objective way to determine what music ruled 2014: cold hard facts. And what do you… More »

Diplo Made A Song With Madonna, Nicki Minaj, & Sophie

Last week, I was talking with my friends and bet that we'd see the PC Music aesthetic start to drip over into Top 40 music by the end of next year. Looks like it may happen even earlier than that. In a new interview with inthemix, Diplo revealed that he worked on a track… More »

The Week In Pop: Nick Jonas Is On The Verge Of Something Awesome

We needed the expert Miguel impersonation that is "Jealous" this year, if only because Miguel himself seems determined to tantalizingly dangle his own new music just out of reach. (These fleeting seconds were such a maddening tease! I realize this hard-to-get routine is a form of foreplay, but jeez.) Anyway: The biggest solo hit… More »

The Week In Pop: Kiesza’s The Full Package; Her Album, Not So Much

If the house-inflected Canadian pop singer Kiesza seems to have jumped on the post-Disclosure bandwagon a little late, consider that her "Hideaway" video -- in which Kiesza and her posse pull off an epic one-shot dance routine on the streets of Brooklyn -- premiered way back in February. So although "Hideaway" hasn't been simmering toward… More »

Ariel Pink Dissed By Grimes, Dismissed By Madonna

Ariel Pink has been agitating people lately, between his trolly comments on misogyny and the Westboro Baptist Church and his whole "maced by a feminist" story. Just yesterday, Pink said in an interview that he had been asked to work with Madonna and gave a harsh assessment of the pop star's body… More »
