Black Barbie: Appeal or Substance?

Over the years, Barbie has taken quite a change. Yester years vision of Barbie was a fun, beach running, blonde haired beauty whose only care in the world was what she was going to wear and how to accessorize herself. Today's image of Barbie shows us a rather different side of her; she's career driven, mother of two, married to her high school sweetheart.

Badu Bares It All: Act of Liberation or PR Stunt?



In her new video, Erykah Badu stirs controversy by getting both fully naked and shot in the head by a sniper in a little over 5 minutes. While Ms. Badu describes the piece as an act of liberation, it has caused quite a turmoil: from Dallas officials saying the the video was shot without a filming permit and that Badu got naked in broad daylight in front of stunned tourists and children, to JFK fans upset that it all took place at almost the exact spot where the late president… Continue

Belikos Undressed and Inked Up

So we found this dope band from Ann Arbor, Michigan who recently moved to New York to show off their music skills and fancy talents to the music junkies that tend to flock to the city. A five-piece dance rock band, they sound like Andre 3000 on a good day fused with pure instrumental creativity- sometimes letting brother duo, drummer (Justin),…

Bad Rabbits Make a Joyful, Funk/Punk Noise



Bad Rabbits is a new band coming straight out of Boston with a very familiar sound. The group has been around for two years and if you miss (or remember) 80’s era Prince and Morris Day, then Bad Rabbits is just what the doctor ordered. The band combines 80’s funk/r&b with a rock attitude that can and will, literally jump out of your speakers.…

WTF Interview with Belikos' guitarist, Keith Reed

So, is Belikos a flower or a drug of some sort? Honestly, I think mo picked it randomly out of a rarely used words book, fucking random right? but the name has evolved in meaning for all of us. at first it was our own spin on the english word bellicose, and we chose it because we felt that that word aptly described our state of mind when on stage. a take no prisoners attitude and a willingness to fight for our music. recently we learned from a fan that Belikos also,…

Dorm Room Diaries: The Woman's Bible

In this edition of Dorm Room Diaries of a Fem Nerd, Twyla gives a book review on, "The Woman's Bible," the first female-written theological study of women in the bible. Pulling out a quote from this 19th century book, she recaps a little on how women are viewed in The Good Book. But whoops, Twyla also accidentally leaves the camera rolling and we catch her when she thinks no one is listening! Darn that roommate and her food-thieving ways!…

A Review of our Monae at The Black Cat

It had been a year and a half since the last time I saw Janelle Monae live, and even for the tiny poetry club/café setting, you wouldn’t have known it from the show she put on. So I could only imagine what she had planned for The Black Cat, a concert venue in downtown DC. Of course I had to get in first, ‘cause dammit if that line outside the club wasn’t long as hell when I got there around 8:30 p.m. (doors “allegedly”…

Erykah Badu “New Amerykah Part Two: Return Of The Ankh”/review

Even before the release of her first record Baduizm in the winter of 1997, Erykah Badu was considered something special. Signed by Kedar Massenburg, who two years prior had a hand in presenting

D’Angelo’s groundbreaking Brown Sugar to an appreciative public, Erykah was introduced as the second coming of Billie Holiday.

While that kind of hyperbole might be impossible for even the most seasoned singers to live up to, Badu was ready to tackle the record…
