From ‘Dancing with the Stars’ to award shows and her own private concerts, Tinashe’s proven time and time again that the stage is like a second home to her.  That point may have seen its strongest reiteration Sunday night (January 27th) when the pop star took to FOX’s ‘Rent: Live!’ to belt out the songs of ‘Mimi‘ (the character she portrays in the production).

Seemingly a girl gone wild as she rocked a sexy leather black top with sparkly blue booty shorts, fishnet stockings, and knee-high leopard-print boots, the 25-year-old got cheers from live audience members and Twitter users alike as she rocked out to the cuts ‘Out Tonight’ and more.

Vocal bible Brandy had been all set to take to the stage at the Kennedy Center yesterday, following months of anticipation. However, illness struck and forced the songbird to cancel the hotly anticipated shows – which had been billed as her most ambitious in years.

Beyond issuing a heartfelt (and hard-hitting) statement about the matter, B-Rocka also – perhaps as a consolation to supporters – shared a rehearsal clip of a new song that was to feature in her set named ‘Meant To Be.’

While the concert sadly wasn’t, it at least provides insights into the music the 39-year-old has been working on for her first body of work since 2012’s ‘Two Eleven.’

Check it out below, where Brandy’s statement also awaits…

When R&B songstress Tweet burst onto the scene this month 17 years ago with her now signature hit, ‘Oops (Oh My),’ many assumed she was an overnight success.  That assumption, as she recently detailed in BET’s hit web series, ‘Finding BET,’ couldn’t be further from the truth.

Between years of working with the group Sugah before it disbanded to doing background vocals for Missy Elliott and other artists before her breakthrough, Tweet’s (born Charlene Keys) rise to fame was far from swift.  That point made the velocity of her fall from the public eye that much more surprising.

Ever the eternal optimist, Keys recently took to BET to dish on life post the success of her debut album, ‘Southern Hummingbird,’ which included a battle with depression, alcohol abuse, and more before she re-emerged with 2016’s ‘Charlene.’  Also thrilling with news of the set’s soon-to-come follow-up project, look inside to hear the 48-year-old talk on this and more:

When analysing tropes and themes covered by Beyonce‘s immersive videography, there is one motif which takes centre stage in almost all of her art.

The past…and its presence in present.

Examples? ‘Naughty Girl’ (see 1953’s ‘The Band Wagon’), ‘Formation‘ and its wink at the Reconstruction era, ‘Why Don’t You Love Me’ (set in the 1950s) and ‘Flawless‘ (see Punk subculture of the 1980s).

What isn’t as obvious, is the artist’s exploration of the future via magical realism, science fiction..and Afro-futurism.

 

Afrofuturism addresses themes and concerns of the African diaspora through technoculture and science fiction, encompassing a range of media and artists with a shared interest in envisioning black futures that stem from Afrodiasporic experiences.

 

Meet us for a look into the other-wordly worlds of Beyonce below…
