At work
By some ignorant jerk
Tell the dirtbags, to put away their chimneys tonight.”

This year the lyrics to Christmas classics like “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” have been called into question. Thursday night on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Miley Cyrus made some changes of her own to “Santa Baby.”

The original, released by Eartha Kitt in 1953, was a little racy, as Cyrus points out to Fallon before they go on stage to perform. “I think I might need to change some of these lyrics,” she decided. “Am I saying I’m going to hook up with Santa if he buys me all this stuff?”

The pop singer decided to take matters into her own hands and altered the lyrics for the #MeToo era. What made the skit more hilarious, however, was that Fallon and pal Mark Ronson didn’t get the memo. They continued to perform planned movements to the original lyrics and tried to keep up with the numerous changes Cyrus made.

Her revised version, though, is much more empowered. Miley doesn’t need Santa to buy her these things because she makes her own money! “Don’t want diamonds, cash, or stuff,” she sings midway through her version. “Nothing that comes in a box. No more fluff. I’ve had enough. And I can buy my own damn stuff.”

She also adds in some lyrics about the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. “A girl’s best friend is equal pay,” she says, before addressing workplace harassment. “Santa Baby, I’d love to know my ass won’t get grabbed at work by some ignorant jerk.”

These are lyrics we can get behind. Watch Cyrus perform her version of “Santa Baby” for yourself, below.

This song is one of a few holiday tunes our culture is revisiting from a post-MeToo lens. Another example is “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” which is about a man who tries to stop a woman from leaving his house even though it seems that she wants to.

In consensual surprise release news, JoJo has re-recorded some of her biggest hits. The mononamed singer beefed with her old record label for seven years, finally freeing herself from Blackground’s grasp in 2014. Since then, JoJo has been recording and touring, and becoming a gay icon. But Blackground wasn’t done with her, removing her eponymous album from streaming services. On Thursday afternoon, JoJo began blasting her Twitter with re-recordings of songs like “Leave (Get Out)” and “Never Say Goodbye.”

Earlier this year, producer Bryan-Michael Cox posted a picture of him, Jo and Jermaine Dupri in the studio. Producers Nash B, Forte Bowie and Supa were also reportedly working with the musician. We’re hoping they’re somehow involved in this exciting news.

Jojo’s debut album was released in 2004, and spawned the hits “Baby, It’s You” and “Leave (Get Out).” The Massachusetts native became the youngest artist to have a top 40 song with the latter, which peaked at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Fans are sure to be thrilled with the re-release, as her first album is unavailable on streaming services. Her former label Blackground, which kept her locked in a seven-year contractual bind, is the reason.

In 2017, she tweeted “My former label removed my music, I unfortunately have absolutely no control over what they do or don’t do…I want to let bygones be bygones. I pray one day they put my music back up.”

However, Jo always wants to make sure her longtime fans are taken care of. In a 2016 interview with VIBE, she stated “I’m really fortunate who’ve grown with me and have stayed committed and interested, and I don’t take it for granted.” This one is for you!

Over the past few years, JoJo managed to release a few mixtapes and EPs, and eventually dropped her third album, Mad Love, via Atlantic Records in 2016. Just as she used those projects to work around Blackground’s road blocks, she’s doing the same thing by rerecording JoJo and The High Road. And our nostalgia-loving hearts are forever grateful.

GRLwood Serves Up Kentucky Fried Queer Punk

 

“I was like, this song isn’t lyrically discussing a queer or trans issue. But it is, because it’s coming from my perspective, whether I’m talking about being trans or not.”

 

Transgression

When I met with Lynn Rose and bass player Raven Blessinger at Spinelli’s, it was at a show. The spacious basement restaurant often doubles as an underground indie venue.

When I arrived, the female-fronted TraumaxQueen was finishing up. Rose is up on the floor moving, jumping and bouncing. She’s not quite slam dancing, but her energy definitely screams hardcore.

At 20 years old, Rose has spent four years in Louisville’s hardcore scene. She started Transgression to address a very specific absence she saw.

“I didn’t really see a huge presence of queer people in the scene,” Rose said. “At least, it wasn’t something that was vocally discussed in music.

So in the time-honored tradition of hardcore, she started a band with her friends, several of whom didn’t initially play instruments. In addition to Rose and Blessinger, Transgression is rounded out by Blake Herbert, Seth Lewis and Kamal Ali.

On their website, they call themselves “a collective of queers, screaming, yelling, and refusing to be silenced.”

Making the scene queer-friendly is a goal for Transgression, and that includes trying to make sure that the under-21 crowd is able to see queer people on stage. That underage crowd is a big part of the hardcore scene, according to Blessinger: “I feel like they are a pretty considerable part of the scene — more than half are under 21.”

The hardcore scene is doubly important for queer kids. It’s a place to get away from heteronormativity.

Blessinger’s initial interest in the hardcore scene was just as much about finding a place to get away from abuse at home as it was about the music. Rose admits there is so much more work to be done, but says the collective feels like they are making progress.

The ancient rivalry between New York femcees Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj dates back to the early stages of Nicki’s career. In spite of the perpetual denial on both sides, fans have peeped and are keeping score. Years ago, there were diss tracks flooding fans’ ears and Barbie channeling Queen Bee’s energy, but towards the end of this summer, the “Crush on You” femcee swore to end her beef under one condition.

It’s no secret that Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim are enemies, so fans were absolutely shook at how much Nicki looked JUST like her nemesis on a new magazine cover! In the pic, Nicki rocks lighter brown hair and dramatic cat eye makeup, and is staring into the camera with a sultry glare. She even had a prominent mole on the left side of her upper lip, the comments section blew up with people pointing out how much she looked like Kim. “Giving me throwback lil kim vibes,” someone wrote, while another added, “OOO you say Cardi B’s copying your style, gulll see this picture you copying [Lil Kim]’s style!”

Did Nicki Minaj use her Vogue Japan cover story as an excuse to throw some shade at her rap enemies Lil’ Kim and Cardi B? According to the Daily Mail, fans are accusing the emcee of dressing up as a young Lil Kim, as well as Cardi B’s little sister, Hennessy in the upcoming February issue.

Nicki Minaj certainly knows how to attract both attention and drama, sometimes even in the same second. That being said, nothing is too small to go by unnoticed by her ever-engaged fanbase, not even a minuscule detail on a magazine cover.

The 2019 Super Bowl halftime show lineup is finally here. The NFL on Sunday officially announcedthat Maroon 5 will be joined by Travis Scott and Big Boi at the upcoming championship game.

Scott’s involvement with the halftime show was officially announced last month in the wake of TMZ’s report. The move drew criticism from celebrities like Michael B. Jordan and Reverend Al Sharpton, who believed Scott shouldn’t support the NFL after their treatment of activist quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Cardi B later said that she wouldn’t perform at the halftime show in solidarity with Kaepernick. Maroon 5 were confirmed to play the halftime show in September. Super Bowl LIII takes place on Sunday, February 3 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

In a statement, Scott confirmed the donation, saying: “I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in. I know being an artist that it’s in my power to inspire. So before confirming the Super Bowl Halftime performance, I made sure to partner with the NFL on this important donation. I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change.”

It was previously reported that Maroon 5 were struggling to find anyone to agree to perform with them during the Super Bowl halftime show.

Sources claimed last year that the band had asked over half a dozen acts to play, including Cardi B, who featured on their single ‘Girls Like You’. A representative for the Bronx rapper later said she was “not particularly interested in participating because of how she feels about Colin Kaepernick and the whole movement.”
