The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The 2011 American Music Awards

It seems like the American Music Awards are kind of like the off-brand Grammys. Sure, some of the big stars are there, but, like, Jay-Z and Beyonce aren’t exactly banging down the door to make an appearance. And also, what’s up with Sprint throwing its name up all over everything? Kind of tacky, no? Just…

Girl Talk: Why I’ll Never Play In Another Band With My Husband

When I was 25 years old, I was in a band. It was a dinky little coffeeshop folk-rock band, but MAN it was fun. I had just enough skill to compose but not enough to accompany myself, so I made embarrassing recordings of half-formed songs, brought them to my bandmates, and we workshopped them together.

Britney Spears’ “Criminal”: Product Placement And Domestic Violence All In Video

Britney Spears’ “Criminal” music video is out and if “Mob Wives” hasn’t locked it down as its theme song, they should. The song itself is typical Britney-meh and the video is Britney-awful. There’s not one but two incidents where the cameras linger on her official perfume. (Product placement, y’all!) Brit-Brit and her real-life boo Jaso…

What Your Taste In Music Says About You (On A Date)

It’s one of the quintessential (and sometimes dreaded) first date questions: What kind of music are you into?

There’s a reason that most people tend to side-step this question with a deft, “A little bit of everything.” It’s because your taste in music reveals a lot about you to potential partners. Here’s the breakdow…

“From The Back Of The Room”: New Documentary On Women In Punk Music

It’s been a kickass couple of years for women in music alternative scenes. Last year two books that dealt heavily with the Riot Grrl movement were published — Girls To The Front by Sara Marcus and Girl Power: The ’90s Revolution In Music by Marisa Meltzer — and a tour documentary about the…

Amy Winehouse Bombs Belgrade

Watch Amy Winehouse’s comeback performance in front of 20,000 people in Belgrade. Watch Amy Winehouse, slur, stumble, scratch herself and try to remove her wig. Watch Amy Winehouse cancel her tour. Any questions (besides what’s she on)? So tragic. [The Fix]…

Kathleen Hanna On Being A Feminist Ambassador

“I feel like there’s this weird thing that as a feminist band you get put in this role as ambassadors. Certain people are like ‘Oh, here come the Feminazis!’ You end up acting 10 times nicer than you even need to be, to be the opposite of the stereotype like ‘You’re the man haters!’ We’re…
