Madonna’s Take On Taylor Swift, Beyonce + Other Pop Culture Happenings In This Parody

 

By “Madonna”

What’s up? It’s me, Madonna. The Ray of Light needed to heal the world….cause you know. The world needs it….or whatever. Anywho, Lola always asks me about things pertaining to reality T.V. and pop culture. I’m happy that she thinks Mommy is the cradle of all things known. So I decided to take a break from recording my new album, hire a filming crew, and answer a few questions about hot topics. I mean, I’m Madonna. I’m the undisputed Queen of Pop and Music, regardless of the outcome from your silly Pop Queen Faceoff poll. Of course you want to know my opinion of the court jesters who entertain me frequently.

Get into my new show, #MadonnaDearest….and if you have any questions for me, hashtag it Instagram. I’ll get to it….after I perfect my downward dog position!

rico_love_art

-By Chris Carpenter 

It’s time to get to know the elusive Rico Love – the man responsible for producing some of pop, hip-hop and R&B’s hottest tracks.  He grabbed our ears a few weeks back with an incredible remix of Disclosure’s “Latch,” but that’s just the latest triumph in a career that goes back over a decade. After catching the attention of the almighty Usher (insert praise hands emoji), Rico was brought on to contribute to the diamond-selling Confessions album in 2004, and he’s been on a roll ever since! From writing, producing and guesting for a slew of popular acts—yes, even Queen Bey!—Rico is skilled at cranking out hit after hit. Heck, he’s won Grammy Awards, people! No wonder he won the heart of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood’s Teairra Mari

So now, let’s show some love to the great Rico Love by taking a look at some of his biggest smashes.

badu_art_8_things

-By Phoebe Robinson

If you were a black girl during the summer of 1997, three things were of importance of to you: finding someone to grease your scalp while you watched Living Single, rooting for Serena and Venus Williams to become the tennis powerhouses they are today, and listening to Erykah Badu‘s debut disc Baduizm. Heck, even if you weren’t a black woman, you were well aware of that classic album. It sold over three million copies, highlighted Badu’s Billie Holiday-esque vocals, and secured her two Grammy awards, but most importantly, it announced her arrival as a force to be reckoned within the music industry. And while her popularity has waned a bit (whose hasn’t after 17 years in the business?), Badu’s legacy can be seen and felt all around us. Read on for 8 reasons why we still adore her.
