The “Force” Might Finally “Awaken” this Weekend : Links You Need to See

With our American palate becoming desensitized by all forms of devilishly good and taste-masking hot-sauces, it’s become hard to enjoy simple gastronomic pleasures without excessive amounts of added flavor. Any kind of sauce, really. It’s actually emotionally trying to not put a sauce on something. Therefore, I understand that it might be necessary to also accompany this post with a nice onion fig glaze. And who better to make your onion fig glaze, or at least to to teach you how to make your own onion fig glaze, than singer-turned-chef, Kelis? After all, her milkshake brought quite a few men to an outdoor space some years ago, so I’m hoping her onion fig glaze does something similar now. … Read More

25 of Music’s Most Misandrist Anthems

Yesterday, we brought you a playlist of 25 of the most misogynistic songs in music’s long history of misogynistic songs. It seems only fair that we pair it with a playlist of 25 misandrist anthems, but the truth is, the tone is totally different. When men bash women (intentionally or inadvertently), it can easily seem like an unnecessary declaration of further disrespect to womankind. When women hate men, it often feels like they’re fighting the patriarchy following thousands of years of oppression. Sometimes the language is extreme, and that’s part of what qualifies these songs as misandrist anthems instead of mere female empowerment tracks — a line Beyoncé walks from time to time.… Read More

Why Sisterhood in Pop Music Is the 1990s Trend We Need to Resurrect

I don’t want to shock anybody here, but the ’90 are back. Or, at the very least, our tendency to over-romanticize the ’90s has led to the return of the certain staples of the decade: plaid, crop tops, and an energetic re-appreciation for Beverly Hills: 90210. But there’s a particular ’90s trend that we’re missing: sisterhood in music. And not in a clichéd, shared-pants sense of the word. … Read More

The Word “Feminist” Isn’t Overused — It’s Winning

Time is asking its readers to vote one overplayed word or phrase from 2014 off the island (“voting off the island” should definitely have been voted off the island back in 2006), and is conducting a poll to that end. Along with such currently-ubiquitous slang as “bae,” “basic,” “obvi,” and “I can’t even,” Time included as an option the slightly older word “feminist,” which indeed got a brisk workout in 2014. … Read More

You’re Tearing Me Apart, Beyoncé Rumors

From the On The Run Tour to Elevatorgate to Jay and Bey’s divorce (which somehow segued into their pregnancy) to the supposed second surprise coming of her self-titled 2013 album2014 been a banner year for Beyoncé rumors. As the music editor of Flavorwire, I am required to pay attention to these rumblings and at times, parse them. As a Beyoncé fan, I am mostly unhappy about this job requirement. … Read More
