The ‘hungover-pop’ pioneer pays homage to pop music legend and queer icon Madonna in her latest self-directed music video for dreamy new single Desperately Seeking Susan, titled after the Queen of Pop’s hit 1985 movie. “I’ve been up all night, and all you’ve done is break my heart, by leaving me here all alone, staring at my phone,” she sings on the track, which deals with the intense longing to be loved that many queer people feel.

Leaving an audience standing for 90 minutes is a tough ask, but when the material is an emotive, thrilling and frankly darn-right funky as this, time means nothing.

It’s easy to see why this show was such a success across the pond – Gloria Estefan is a huge star there, and the music will play well to their market, where her story is also much better known. In the UK the concept of this musical seems a bit more niche, but the narrative – a classic rags to riches tale, which touches on topical themes including immigration – will resonate more universally. In a nutshell, On Your Feet!...

Tyler the Creator stopped by Funk Master Flex’s Hot 97 the other day where he participated in a freestyle segment that left his host unsure how to respond. “I don’t have anything prepared,” Tyler said when Flex first asked if he wanted to do some freestyling during the almost two-hour broadcast.

DETROIT (Reuters) - Moderate candidates forced their way into the debate conversation on Tuesday night by assailing as “political suicide” the agenda championed by liberal front-runners who have dominated the 2020 Democratic presidential primary race.

That’s the concept here; a bard who decides to add a little West End sparkle to some of his most celebrated works. We’re treated to Richard III belting out jaunty show tunes while dropping into the splits; the history plays are recounted as a Hamilton-style rap; and the witches from Macbeth appear as you’ve never seen them before. It’s a cute idea that’s here backed up by some serious skill and talent. Guy Hughes is an entertainingly Shakespeare – all...
