ENTITY’s Visions In Black EP

When recently introduced to ENTITY’s Visions In Black EP, her sound was described as “queer goth electro/pop” so I expected loud, ear-bleeding, musical angst. Instead I met Carly Rae Jepsen’s evil twin sister from another mother. ENTITY’s sound is darker and harder than Carly’s but her pop stylings worked their way into my brain the…

Zuzu’s Queensway Tunnel

New-to-me diva Zuzu’s album Queensway Tunnel doesn’t have the pop sound that I typically seek out, however her style is so unique and honest, there was no way I couldn’t be drawn in. Zuzu is a solid singer-songwriter who can fluctuate between eternal love (“Endlessly Yours”) to storing an ex’s bones in her closet (“Never…

Susanna Hoffs’ Bright Lights

“Walk Like An Egyptian!” “Manic Monday!” “Hazy Shade Of Winter!” “Eternal Flame!” I love me The Bangles. However, in 1991 when I heard Susanna Hoffs’ solo song “My Side Of The Bed” for the first time, I was like “The Bangles who?” Her first solo album When You’re A Boy is one of my favorite…

Alyssa Milano’s Sorry Not Sorry

I’m a huge fan of Japanese pop-music icon Alyssa Milano as well as her work on the TV shows Who’s The Boss, Melrose Place, Charmed (one of the best shows ever created, in my gay opinion), and Insatiable. Back on March 30th, 2009 I went to Borders in New York City for a book signing…

Tori Amos’ Ocean To Ocean

Ocean To Ocean is the prodigal return of the pop-sounding Tori Amos who has been in hiding for far too many years, I was getting ready to file a missing diva report. I feel like her song “29 Years” is speaking to that part of me that’s been longing (for 29 years, I’ve been searching…

Natalie Imbruglia’s Firebird

In my gay opinion, Natalie Imbruglia is pop personified. She knows what she does well, without feeling the need to branch out into other genres, and she brings it on every album. Her new album Firebird is no different, it’s jam-packed with feel-good, finger-snapping, dancing around the living room goodness. For those who only know…

Donna De Lory’s Gone Beyond

The morning one of my divas releases a new album, I buy it and download it to my USB so I can listen to it in my car to and from work. This past Friday was no different when Donna De Lory released her new album, Gone Beyond. I popped it in my car and…

Adam Silvera’s They Both Die At The End

Don’t worry, this post doesn’t have spoilers, how could it when the book’s title says it all, “They Both Die At The End.” That’s the ultimate spoiler alert right there, it’s also the first thing that caught my eye in an email from The Strand Bookstore in New York City. The second thing that got…

Madi Diaz’s History Of A Feeling

Madi Diaz is one of the more diverse divas that I follow, with a varied catalog of musical stylings. Her newest album, History Of A Feeling, is very stripped down and gives a whole new meaning to modern folk. There isn’t any other diva that I follow that has quite the same sound or style…
