The best K-pop subunits are the ones that do something different by showcasing something that their main group can't do, whether it be a sound, a style, or a skill. Girls' Generation's TaeTiSeo does all three, which makes them K-pop's most perfect subunit. (A title they share with After School's Orange Caramel, if I'm being fair.)
The trio's latest single, "Holler," picks up where 2012's "Twinkle" left off, just with more swag this time around. The candy-coated big band beats (courtesy of a small team of Swedish hitmakers) recall Christina Aguilera's Back To Basics album, while TaeTiSeo's vocal gymnastics are incredibly impressive for a modern day pop group.
It's not that the original Girls' Generation can't sing, but with nine members to contend with, it's impossible to put the focus on powerful vocal performances -- especially when complex dance routines are involved.
So basically, if you're into great singing, beautiful girls, and good pop music, Girls' Generation-TTS have everything you're after and more. Their new EP has already topped iTunes charts across Asia and even hit the top forty in America, so grab a copy now if you haven't already.
The hit musical will drop on Disney+ July 3rd.
Lin Manuel-Miranda's Hamilton has taken the theater world by storm since its 2015 Broadway premiere.
A hip-hop musical about America's founding fathers doesn't sound immediately appealing, but Manuel-Miranda's brilliant song writing and diverse casting not only captured the attention of audiences, but proved that major change is possible within an art form as encumbered by traditions as musical theater.
The white supremacist Trump fan is back in jail—again—a symbol of everything wrong with America's prison system.
"I am a white supremacist. The Aryan Nation will rule the world!"
If you think that sounds like the words of a man who is about to be deservedly choked out, you're partially right. But before 36-year-old Nicholas Arnold Schock got taken down by a group of brave bystanders in Nokomis Florida, he would do a lot more to deserve such aggressive treatment.
The viral video of the incident opens with a belligerent Schock, half-naked, shouting at the staff of Pop's Sunset Grille to "call Donald Trump, he's gonna come get me out of prison." It's not evident what sparked the confrontation—whether Schock was refusing to wear a mask in the popular open-air venue, or simply wanted to strip naked. Whatever the case, Schock was seemingly convinced that Donald Trump would have his back in the ordeal.
