#NoMakeUpSelfie; Charity Campaigns Should Not Be Immune From Criticism

(0) Comments | Posted 26 March 2014 | (12:21)

Last week I penned an article on the 'No make up selfie' craze that split opinions so remarkably, you could have spread it on your bread in lieu of Marmite. Essentially, I stated that as it stood then, the so-called 'campaign' was no more than vanity disguised as...

Resurrecting UK Reggae: Stylo G Interview

(0) Comments | Posted 24 October 2013 | (17:34)

For the generation that know Channel AKA as Channel U, Stylo G is a household name. Bursting onto the scene in 2004 with what was the anthem of many a bus journey, 'My Yout', he was the mascot of the mid-2000 urban music scene. Now he's back and ready to...

Fuse ODG: A Musician On A Mission

A few years ago, Afrobeats was the well-kept secret of a few lucky listeners. The idea of hearing it anywhere other than your parents car or an aunts 50th birthday was unheard of. But a new wave of African artists have arrived on the UK music scene, bringing the sounds...

As I was led to my interview with pop sensation VV Brown, a waitress ushered me behind the counter and proceeded to open a fridge that led down to a flight of stairs. "Wrong door" she giggled. As it turns out, Hoxton hot spot...

It's been long overdue but VV Brown is back and sounding better than ever. I went down to her single launch party to witness her comeback for Live Magazine.

"This is the single launch party!" VV Brown roared in response to rapturous applause "I've missed you." And by the...

A Rose By Any Other Name May Leave You Unemployed

(8) Comments | Posted 27 July 2013 | (15:31)

I recently considered embarking on a social experiment both career enhancing and bubble bursting in equal measure. Apparently, people (especially women. You've foiled me yet again, labia) are being encouraged to 'white up' their names in pursuit of employment. With a name like 'Rebecca Johnson' you're likely to receive a...

The Age Of Awkward

(0) Comments | Posted 28 June 2013 | (13:36)

We Millennials, children of the Nintendo/Atomic Kitten dance routines at lunchtime/Alien babies in the fridge generation, have one thing in common; we are all awkward as fuck. Let's face it, the majority of us make Screech from Saved By The Bell look like a regular Don Lothario due to our...

Hipster Racism: The Bane of Higher Education

(3) Comments | Posted 14 May 2013 | (23:23)

Hipsters are generally quite moronic. Not bathing and googling 'Ska', then telling anybody with ears and an Ipad that you love Ska, doesn't make you interesting in anyway.

Who's More Out of Touch: 'EastEnders' or 'Youngers'?

(9) Comments | Posted 5 April 2013 | (00:00)

The depiction of teenagers on British television isn't offensive; it's hilarious. Its intended demographic spend their nights tweeting in hysterics about just how little these scriptwriters must actually know in regards to life as a young adult in East London or Peckham. No matter how many 'youf' dramas are created,...
