Grammy-ed out

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Articles, Blog, Music | Leave a comment

The Grammys (or should I say The Sammys as the show was apparently dedicated solely to the wonders of Sam Smith) are behind us. It was too much of a deal for me to write just one article on it, so I did two and also participated in the live-chat with the editor of SVOY.ru Here’s my where are they now-esque piece on the artists who’s won Grammy as a ‘Best New Artist’ for the last 10 years. The answers …

Sleeping in style with Sweetmaybe Dreams

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Style | 1 Comment

Sleeping mask is a rather underrated accessory, isn’t? Well, thanks to my friend Nasty Maybe and her DIY-brand ‘Sweetmaybe Dreams’ you will stay in style both in the real and dream world. Nastya’s got lots of options when it comes to her witty sleeping masks (the prices start at 500 rubles apiece). The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ones have to be my favorites but she also has some sexy pink furry ones. Nastya’s based in Moscow but you can order …

Oh, Kelly

Kelly Clarkson just revealed the cover of her upcoming sixth studio album (8th if you count the Greatest Hits one and the Xmas one) and looks like it was inspired by one of the most enigmatic figures in the contemporary pop world – miss Hilton. Take a look: On a serious note, I hope this new album is at least half as amazing as ‘All I Ever Wanted’ was. But at this point there’s no reason to doubt Kelly’s ability …

10 best moments from E! ‘Christina Milian Turned Up’

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Music | Leave a comment

I was never a fan of reality shows, but being a loyal Christina Milian fan since her 2002 debut made pretty much obligated to check out the premiere of her new E! reality show ‘Christina Milian Turned Up’, that follows Christina, her mom and two sisters as they, well, do anything to distract us from the fact that it’s been 9 years since Christina’s last album. And even though I’d prefer a EP of brand new music instead of that …

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Interviews, Music | Leave a comment

I did mention my intrerview with Juliet Simms from Automatic Loveletter before, but now it’s time to finally show our chat that took place in New York back in summer 2010, when the band was about to release their debut studio album ‘Truth or Dare’. In 2012 Juliet appeared on The Voice and now she’s releasing a solo EP, but let’s take a look back when the things just started heating up for her in the first episode of Talk …

My Girlfriend Is Taylor Swift

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Articles, Music | Leave a comment

It’s hardly a bold move for a pop singer to record an album dedicated to love. But when it’s Taylor Swift we’re talking about, the world goes silent and listens carefully. As by 25 this country-coquette with the looks of young Nicole Kidman managed to write her own list of the love affairs with A-listers, which includes Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal and Harry Styles (and these are only ‘official’ romances we’re talking about). I dissected ‘1989’ …

Even though 2014 didn’t see the comebacks of Rihanna or Kesha or the revival of Lady Gaga’s career, it did have some kickass moments. 35 of them, to be exact. So let’s take a look back and remember the best songs, movies, series, music videos, crossovers, catfights, fashion collections, deers and gorillas of 2014. Beware: the following list is highly subjective, but I did try to explain my choices.

10 reasons why Sia was the pop queen of 2014

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Articles, Music | Leave a comment

The English translation of the piece I did for Svoy.ru for Sia’s Birthday. There are artists who are presented to us just like a new set of the ‘Happy Meal’ toys: all wrapped in the nice packaging and shipped to the music McDonaldses of the world. That’s how we get to know people like Rita Ora and Meghan Trainor. And then there are people like Sia, whose quest to the same tops of the same charts is way more interesting …
