Whitney Houston’s life came to a tragic end on February 11 2012 but if she lived, today would have been her 50th birthday. So, rather than dwell on the negative aspects of her short life, let’s measure her influence on the music industry via the many singers that she inspired with her incredible voice.
Eminem may not have made his grand return to the music industry just yet, but he has wet his feet with a performance at the G-Shock 30th Anniversary party. The “Not Afraid” rapper had no fear of being onstage again and thrilled audience members with an hour-long medley. Seeing Eminem perform live these days is […]
Last week, we discussed at great length the effects of ageism and sexism on female artists in the music industry, and highlighted the key relationship between Western patriarchal ideologies and the objectification of female sexuality.

Every time Jason Derulo hits the stage, people instantly put their televisions on mute and just enjoy the dance show. Such was the case on this evening’s episode of America’s Got Talent when the out of breath performed a rendition of his latest surprise hit, “The Other Side”.
Perhaps R. Kelly’s upcoming Black Panties album won’t be a complete embarrassment after all. During an interview with Fuse, the King of R&B, who seems to be weathering a midlife crisis, revealed that the record will feature an appearance by the more mature Alicia Keys.
