ALMA is ready to be the queer female popstar she always wanted to see / Amplify by Gay Times
ALMA first came to prominence in her home country when she was 17, competing in the seventh season of Finland’s edition of Idol. By 2016 she’d released two Top 10 singles with Karma and Dye My Hair, but it was third cut Chasing Highs that saw her bag Top 20 placings in the UK and Germany in 2017. From there, plans for a full-length debut album were put into motion.
“It was very hard to know which direction I wanted to go in,” ALMA admits when it came to writing a full collection of music. “I didn’t know what it was two years ago.” She retreated to writing sessions in Helsinki and Los Angeles, chopping and changing ideas until she struck upon the track that would inform the rest of her debut. “Cowboy was the song when I understood what I want to do and who I am,” she explains. “After that it was clear.”
The key, she discovered, was to start being totally honest to who she is. Cowboy centres on trying to fit into new social circles and discovering yourself as you come out of your teen years, something she had to deal with in more intense circumstances than most young people. “When I first moved to Los Angeles I felt so small and so emo,” she smiles. “Everybody was so energetic and positive, and I felt like I was just not fitting in at all. I needed to create an alter ego or something, to be like ‘I’m going to survive, I’m gonna make it through, I’m a motherfucking cowboy!’ It was a line that was in my head all the time.”

Meet trans pop star and style icon Kim Petras
“I just love to stunt!” Kim Petras exclaimed during her appearance at Saks Fifth Avenue on Thursday — an understatement to anyone who witnessed her parade of colorful outfits during New York Fashion Week.
It’s hard to believe that the 26-year-old pop star, who sat front row at Marc Jacobs, Christian Siriano, Jeremy Scott and more last month, was a runway-show newbie. But she insists that the experience was “surreal,” and a long time coming at that.
Sony Music Has Not Conceded That Vocals on Michael Jackson Album Are Fake
Articles published on Thursday claimed that Sony Music had “admitted” in a court hearing earlier this week that three tracks on “Michael,” the 2010 Michael Jackson album released posthumously by Sony’s Epic Records, contained lead vocals that were not actually by Michael Jackson — an assertion that the company denied in a statement released late Friday morning.
An Opera Expert on Why Aretha Franklin Was the Ultimate Diva
In the world of opera, the term “diva” is reserved for a select few. It has nothing to do with outlandish offstage behavior and everything to do with a true gift for communicating in song. It’s the Italian word for “goddess,” but when used for a performer, it’s more like someone touched by the divine for the general betterment of the rest of us.
At first, Aretha Franklin embodied that description literally, as the gospel-singing daughter of the most famous preacher of the day. But then she took it further -- to the blues, R&B, pop and even opera itself.
Lupe Fiasco Says He Will No Longer Consume 'Excessively Violent' Content
Lupe Fiasco is making a big life change in the upcoming months: Starting Jan. 1, 2019, he will no longer consume violent content.
“I will no longer support or engage with gratuitously senseless and or [sic] purposeless + excessively violent music, tv, cartoons, content and film,” he wrote on Instagram. “This includes all of the violent music, media and movies I grew up listening to and watching.”
The Chicago rapper’s love for martial arts and fighting video games has been well documented throughout the years; however, Lupe now suggests he will spend more time enjoying “peaceful” forms of entertainment: “There are so many other narratives in this world that involve peaceful means of cohabitation and expression with humanity and the world at large that deserves attention, absorption and contemplation,” he wrote.

Jason Mraz Opens Up About His 'Two Spirit' Sexuality: 'I've Had Experiences With Men'
Jason Mraz is opening up about his sexuality.
The “I’m Yours” singer, 41, revealed in an interview with Billboard that his wife of three years, Christina Carano, helped him embrace his sexual identity, which he explored during their relationship.
“I’ve had experiences with men, even while I was dating the woman who became my wife,” he said.
How a Netflix Series Revived the Career of Latin Pop Icon Luis Miguel
Three questions have dominated the summer in Mexico:
Who will be the country’s next president?
How far will the Mexican soccer team advance in the World Cup?
And: ¿Dónde está Marcela, la mamá de Luis Miguel? (Where is Marcela, Luis Miguel’s mom?)
The first two questions have answers. Mexico elected its next president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, on July 1, and hours later the national soccer team was eliminated in the World Cup's second round on July 2.
Question three, however, remains unanswered, and may never be. But thanks to a hit TV show, anticipation for a possible reveal of what happened to Marcela Basteri, the missing mother of pop icon Luis Miguel, has become a pervasive topic of conversation on social media, radio, and news outlets throughout Mexico and much of Latin America.
Years & Years' Olly Alexander Talks 'Casual Homophobia' in The Music Industry: It 'Exists in the Fabric of Everything'
Yesterday (July 9), Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander became a cover boy -- and a provocative one, at that -- when he graced PAPER magazine in a silken Versace shirt while sensually resting his head on a model’s bare thigh.
In the interview, the singer gets serious, firing shots at the passive homophobia that he still sees lingering around the music industry.
"In many ways, this is the very best time to be a gay artist ever," he says. "We wouldn't be where we are today without all the gay artists that have come before us and broken down so many barriers. But barriers aren't gone. Particularly for less privileged members of the queer community. There is this very insidious casual homophobia that exists in the fabric of everything including the music industry.”
Missy Elliott's originality showed me it was cool to be a nerdy Black girl
In 1997, I missed the bus to school because I absolutely had to see the entire music video for Missy Elliott’s “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly).” I, of course, had no way of knowing that I was witnessing an artist — a future icon, really — who was going to completely shift how the world viewed music as an art form. At the time, I was enraptured by something I’d never seen before, and I was simply unwilling to pry my eyes away.
The fish-eyed lens. The cartoonish special effects. Costuming that appeared to be plucked from a delightfully fun future. Lyrics that exuded a bold confidence. With her first solo, career-solidifying music video, Missy Elliott became a certified force in an industry where women had to claw for the barest hint of recognition. Every hit record — “Sock It 2 Me,” “Hot Boyz,” “Get Ur Freak On,” “Gossip Folks,” “WTF (Where They From),” the list goes on — made it harder to relegate her to a single box.
To simply call Missy Elliott a rapper, even a devastatingly skilled one, ignores the fact that she is also a razor-sharp lyricist, singer, producer, dancer, and visionary. For over two decades, she’s built a legacy so rock solid that the name Missy Elliott has become synonymous with originality and brilliance.
