Telfar/Guess controversy: an ode to Black creativity

In the midst of Covid-19 struggles and civil rights injustices, there has been a push from the black community to put money back into black businesses and black creatives. In fact, reputable business magazines such as Forbes have published lists of black-owned businesses to shop with in 2021.

Demi Lovato shows true vulnerability with ‘Dancing With The Devil… The Art Of Starting Over’

One of my favorite songs on the album is “ICU (Madison’s Lullaby),” which is dedicated to her younger sister Madison De La Garza. The story of the song is what makes the track truly beautiful to me.
