A Chat with Anna Rose Holmer, Director of The Summer's Best Film The Fits

The Fits is a beautiful and true film that analogizes the emotional heft of girls growing up with a real-life physical tug of war between the act of boxing and competitive drill dance. It is the best film I’ve seen all year, and perhaps one of the best I’ve ever seen. Technically a coming of age film as well as a…

FKA twigs Performs 'Good to Love' on The Tonight Show, Is an Angelic Vision

FKA twigs debuted “Good to Love” live on The Tonight Show Wednesday, where she last fully cowed host Jimmy Fallon in 2014 with an artful performance of “Two Weeks” and a giant swathe of silk emanating from the heavens. For this performance, though, she went minimal to match the song, using light and gleaming white…

FKA twigs Writhes Around In Bed For Gorgeous New Single 'Good to Love'

One tool that fka twigs has always used effectively in her (usually self-directed) music videos is the concept of autonomy. Barring a few clips, like the powerfully choreographed “Glass & Patron,” she is often the only focal point in her videos, which invokes a multitude of themes that also seem to reflect in her…

Dancing Dog: Watch David Bowie Putting Down the Best Moves

Our sorrowfully gone alien-icon David Bowie has been eulogized for many things today—for his music, obviously, and for his fashion, and for the particular transcendent way he put the world forward with his imagination and lack of concern for convention, including gender. But we’d also like to note Bowie for his…

Flesh and Bone Is Another Starz Show About Dark, Complex Women

For a certain generation, it might be difficult to watch Starz’s Flesh and Bone without thinking of the 2000 film Center Stage. Yet the former quickly makes it very clear that this is not a fun, light-hearted romp where the underdog rises through the ranks, but a rough journey filled with abuse, drug use and potential…

Here's 'KYBM,' a Gritty, Grooving Introduction to Your New Fave Tunde Olaniran

One of the most unnervingly multi-talented, interesting new artists working right now lives in Flint, Michigan, and works a day job at Planned Parenthood. If you’ve ever listened to Tunde Olaniran, you know what I’m saying—it sounds like you’re listening to 15 different artists flex their particular gifts at once.…

How FKA twigs' Wild 'Congregata' Subverts the Conventional Pop Concert

In 2015, audiences have a fairly fixed idea of what constitutes a “pop” performance. In stadiums and arenas, we expect to be dazzled for the price of our often very expensive tickets, moved from our seats not just with excellent music but with magnificent light shows, elaborate choreography, otherworldly costuming.

Watch FKA twigs Do a Legendary Magic Trick From Her Womb in New Video

For brand-new single "Glass & Patron," House Mother-in-training FKA twigs brings some real-deal voguing into her zone, perhaps the first instance of real-deal voguing in a mainstream video since Madonna's "Vogue." (The occasional suicide dip in the odd Lady Gaga or Christina Milian video doesn't quite grapple up to…

Have ​FKA twigs Teach You How to Dance

Just five short years ago, before FKA twigs was a rising outré-pop star and trendsetter worldwide, she was working with the British government, teaching young people to dance, sing, and write poetry. She was just a young person herself—22 at the time—but she'd already been dancing professionally for nine years by that…

Sia's New Video With Shia LeBeouf & Maddie Ziegler Is Bananas


Shia LeBeouf's performance art dreams are totally fulfilled in this clip for Sia's emotional street banger "Elastic Heart," which sees him running around in a flesh colored leotard, in a cage, with Maddie Ziegler of reality TV show Dance Moms, who is 12. Ziegler is a better dancer than your mans, of course, but…
