19 Jun 2017 There’s this thing that’s been damaging my perception of myself, has nearly wrecked my self-esteem, and has made me feel like an unwanted outsider: a feeling of disconnection
24 Apr 2017 When I arrived in Britain, I became aware that favouritism takes place in a very disgusting form: racism. I’m not trying to say that only people of my race experience racism here. However, as a Chinese person – “one of the Chinese” as they say – I can see first-hand how differently we are treated.

06 Nov 2016 The Mother Monster is back with Joanne, a rock, folk-charged album that sounds nothing like her previous works.

04 Sep 2016 Britney Spears' highly anticipated new album Glory lives up to the hype. It may be the best piece of work the pop princess has ever put together.

24 Jul 2016 Grace is one of the few soul artists to have emerged this year. Considering how much this genre tends to be overlooked by mainstream charts, the Australian’s album has done remarkably well.
