Watch Charli XCX Dance With a Lambo in Her High-Gloss 'Vroom Vroom' Video

Charli XCX’s “Vroom Vroom” is a typically delectable pop number, and as always the video delivers. Decked out in a latex bodysuit that resembles a high gloss paint job on a sports car, she sings and semi-raps about how no one can touch her in this pop world—cause baby, she’s much too fast.

Charli XCX Made a Wonderful Documentary About Feminism in Pop

Just two minutes into Charli XCX’s documentary about feminism in pop, The F Word And Me, Charli is seen doing press before her set at the Glastonbury Festival in London . After a female reporter asks her which essential item she’d bring to a festival (“Vodka,” says Charli), it cuts to an off-camera male interviewer…

Euros and Americans Get Fresh on the MTV EMAs Red Carpet

Sunday night marked MTV’s Europe Music Awards, held in Milan and featuring many famous musicians and a few I had to Google. (I do not know how I lived this long without knowing the identity of Stash Fiordispino.) As is typical with pop music awards shows, some attendees went all in, some went all out (too out), and…

Bleachers Released an All-Female Cover Album of Strange Desire and It Rules

Forget Ryan Adams’s 1989, an album whose pleasures should be apparent to only Ryan Adams fans and interesting to a smaller cohort still. In terms of gender-flipped cover collections, what Bleachers just did in Terrible Thrills Vol. 2 is much, much livelier: it’s their debut album Strange Desire with a different woman…

Watch Charli XCX, Tinashe & Ty Dolla $ign Perform With Dancing Kitties

I enjoy how Charli, Tinashe, and Ty's performance of "Drop That Kitty" at the MTV Movie Awards was literal, in that it included a chorus line of dancers booty-popping in pink kitten costumes. But still, it could have gone farther—were real cats unavailable? They are in Hollywood, there are definitely some trained…

Here is Charli XCX Singing 'Boom Clap' in Japanese

How much does pop princesa Charli XCX know and love her fanbase? Definitely enough to try her hand at singing "Boom Clap," one of last year's biggest hits, in Japanese, for special release of Sucker on Warner Music Japan. Unsure how she fared as my Japanese is a little rusty, but at least two people in the always…

Charli XCX and Rita Ora Go Full Thelma & Louise in New Video

Charli XCX and Rita Ora's new "Doing It" video is a spaghetti western of a bank robbery, two high-contrast pop stars bum-rushing a gas station and rolling around the desert in their pink trucks. It's not quite as fatalist or committed as Thelma & Louise, insofar that they do not die in the end. But Charli seems super…

Here's Charli XCX's New Single 'Doing It,' Now With Extra Rita Ora

"Doing It" might be my favorite track off Charli XCX's excellent bubble-punk pop album SUCKER, and Charli just released a new version featuring everyone's favorite Who's That Girl, Oh Yeah, It's Rita Ora. Everything's exactly the same as the star-spangled original—I love the tense, sky-high whip of the chorus—except…
