Lily Allen: ripped ball gowns, cigarettes and salty lyrics

There’s something fascinating about music stars who have a love/hate relationship with their career or even treat it with a little bit of disrespect. The big divas who after a couple of successful records, whether we're talking inter- or just nationally, dramatically announce the end of their career. Most of the time, they blame it … Continue reading Lily Allen: ripped ball gowns, cigarettes and salty lyrics

Quarantine playlist: my favourite songs of 2020 so far

It's unbelievable what this coronavirus has done to all of us. We're stuck at home, bombarded by videos of Instagram models working out in their apartments, teaching us how to use pots and pans to increase the effectiveness of push-ups. Stars like Miley Cyrus or Charli XCX do Instagram story live streams daily, interviewing each … Continue reading Quarantine playlist: my favourite songs of 2020 so far

The worst songs I heard in 2019

Coldplay – Everyday Life I try not to listen to Coldplay. Despite hating when people divide artists’ discographies into “good old” and “crappy new” stuff, I have to admit that Coldplay should have ended at its peak with Mylo Xyloto and the viral single Paradise. Or maybe even earlier, sometime around “Fix You”, which is … Continue reading The worst songs I heard in 2019

5 reasons why Norman Fucking Rockwell! should win the Grammy for Album of the year

Lana Del Rey certainly isn't Recording Academy's sweetheart. Despite having released six albums and scoring some iconic career moments such as the success of Young and Beautiful from The Great Gatsby, she still hasn't managed to earn music's most important trophy. Del Rey has always been neglected by the Grammys. She was, in fact, nominated for the … Continue reading 5 reasons why Norman Fucking Rockwell! should win the Grammy for Album of the year

“Fashion doesn’t have to be superficial” Interview with Julia Napoleon Ka

Known all over the world for incredibly high standards, attention … Continue reading “Fashion doesn’t have to be superficial” Interview with Julia Napoleon Ka

Madonna “Madame X” – Review

Madame X is a dog's dinner, but delicious! Annoyingly, Madonna somehow managed to become a joke, at least within my circle of friends. That is not because of her age as many would assume, but her rather desperate efforts to follow the trends and appear "on top of the music world". The last few albums … Continue reading Madonna “Madame X” – Review

A few words about Eurovision 2019

We all know what Eurovision is like - sparkly, camp, colourful, over the top competition in which European countries(well, mostly) compete with each other to win the crystal trophy, which gives the winner nothing but fame. The extravagant contest is responsible for introducing some really good recording artists to the general public (us!), whether it's … Continue reading A few words about Eurovision 2019

Lizzo: “Cuz I love you”

This Detroit-born flute-handling singer-songwriter and her major-label debut "Cuz I love you" cuzed a little stir in the music industry due to the loud, body-positive image and often genreless (technically confusing?) tunes. Her newest album is full of musical influences, energetic beats and obviously confident phrases - sung, rapped, yelled... The record opens with a … Continue reading Lizzo: “Cuz I love you”

The Glasgow School of Art fashion show

The Glasgow School of Art is without a doubt one of the most renowned and respected university-level institutions for future creatives in the country. It seems to be impossible to even read an article or watch a video about the city that wouldn’t include some information about the school. The students usually describe the place … Continue reading The Glasgow School of Art fashion show
