Madonna’s Madame X (Deluxe)

Now that Madonna explained who Madame X is (she forgot pretentious), this is how I see Madame X. Medellin – Four years since Rebel Heart and I was ready for some new Madonna music. After hearing the first single “Medellin”, I thought “Eh”, but who knew this would be one of the better songs on…

Carly Rae Jepsen’s Dedicated

In my gay opinion, Carly Rae Jepsen’s new album Dedicated is like cotton candy. It’s colorful, light and sweet with Carly Rae singing in her sugary voice without over-producing. The music is pure pop with fun house-like lyrics that are repetitive and able to be sung along to with just a few listens. Although she…

Marina’s Love & Fear

Last week I took a bus trip to Georgia. Not only did I have my sister for company but I  brought along Marina and her new album Love & Fear. When picking music for a trip it has to be light and fun. In my gay opinion, Love & Fear is the perfect road trip…

Taylor Dayne’s Tell It To My Heart

I follow some divas for their greatest hits, personalities and live performances; Taylor Dayne is one such diva. I’ve seen her many times at retro festivals, casinos, gay bars, and town greens. She’s tough and distant with a voice that will knock you on your ass. Last month she did a free concert near by…

John L. Harmon’s Vision Bent

INTRO: Twitter is one of those places where I go to stalk my divas and interact with people from different walks of life. Amazingly, I have only had positive interactions and made quite a few friends, who I refer to as twends. One such twend I have made is author, blogger, and vlogger John L…

Dido’s Still On My Mind

Twenty years after her first album was released, Dido has returned with her fifth album, Still On My Mind. In my gay opinion, from the first note, Still On My Mind is without a doubt a Dido album. Sometimes when a diva releases a new album there’s talk of “evolving” or “branching out” but not…

supposedly.me’s Affirmative

This is going to be the post where I date myself (I don’t mean dinner for one at my favorite vegan restaurant, not having to share my snuck-in Twizzlers at the local family-run movie theater, and dessert back at my place…wink, wink) and take you all the way back to the 80’s. That’s when electronic…

Grace Jones: Bloodlight And Bami

My partner watches all those “Making A Murderer” sort of documentaries where they investigate old crime cases with people who are wrongfully imprisoned. He gets annoyed by the injustices of the judicial system due to one’s socioeconomic status. When he goes off about it I plaster a smile on my face, go to my mental…

Ingrid Michaelson’s Songs For The Season

This time of year I’m always curious to see which divas are releasing Christmas albums. This year only one diva released an album worth buying, at least in my gay opinion, and that’s Ingrid Michaelson. Ingrid did a CD signing in New York City to promote the new album which I went down for. Unfortunately…

Jenifer Lewis’ The Mother Of Black Hollywood

The thing that Jenifer Lewis and I have most in common (besides being funny, strong, beautiful, African American women) is our undying love of New York City. Lucky for me, New York was one of the stops on Jenifer’s book tour to promote her autobiography The Mother Of Black Hollywood. Sure it meant waking up…
