Throwback Thursday: Outkast feat. Killer Mike – “The Whole World”

The Coachella crowd may not have been enthused about Outkast’s reunion, but who cares? The die-hard fans like me were more than pleased to stream the performance and hold mini concerts in our living rooms. (Everyone did that, right?).

Andre, Big Boi and Killer Mike weren’t able to perform “The Whole World,” so here it is, folks.

Be sure to check out Outkast if they come to a festival near you.

Throwback Thursday: The Evolution of Mad Men’s Peggy Olsen

In honor of the final season of Mad Men premiering this Sunday, AMC started it’s Then and Now series detailing the evolution of the show’s most popular characters.

Here’s the Then and Now for my favorite character Peggy Olsen, who went from Don Draper’s “girl” to… Well, I’ll keep that to myself for those of you who are still binge watching the series on Netflix.

You can also check out Then and Now videos for other Mad Men characters, including everyone’s favorite red head Joan Harris, on AMC’s YouTube page.

Throwback Thursday: Amerie – “Why Don’t We Fall In Love”

It’s hot. I know I was begging for warm weather last week, but I live in the South and when it warms up down here… It WARMS up.

It already feels like summer, so I figured I celebrate with huge sunglasses and a song that sounds like sunshine. Can’t you just picture yourself in a monokini as Amerie sings this?

Throwback Thursday: St. Vincent – “Cheerleader”

Twenty-somethings use the word “obsessed” too much. We’re obsessed with this, obsessed with that. I try to fight it, but I’m one of those omg-absolutely-obsessed women.

So of course, I’m obsessed with St. Vincent’s latest self-titled album. Take a listen on Spotify if you haven’t heard it. While you’re there, check out her entire catalog, which includes one of my favorite albums Strange Mercy. It’s hard to choose the best song from that LP, but “Cheerleader” is definitely a standout.

Enjoy and become obsessed.

Music: Girl Power Playlist

It’s Women’s History Month, which is a time to celebrate the accomplishments and contributions of women. While ladies throughout time have done some amazing things like lead countries, help to bring about social change and umm, give birth to every human being ever created, they’ve also made some awesome music. In celebration of womankind, here is a little playlist to commemorate this important month. Consider it my contribution to the world (hey, I have to make it into the history books somehow).

Outskirt’s Week in Review: April 26

Well, I’ve been extremely busy lately, which is why I have been slacking. Forgive me, but you know life happens.

  • Once again it’s Beyonce Knowles-Carter’s week. I’m slightly annoyed that we have yet to hear or see a single, but The King surprised her French Beyhive with a performance of “Grown Woman.” Go ahead a press play if you haven’t seen it before Sony takes it off the interwebs.

  • Blue Ivy’s mother also released a beautiful and sunny H&M commercial featuring a new song titled “Standing on the Sun.” Get into that dark mane…

  • Janelle Monae shared a dream collaboration with the often imitated, but never duplicated Erykah Badu. Listen to “Q.U.E.E.N.”, which will appear on Monae’s sophomore LP The Electric Lady.

  • Vogue Brazil unveiled the May 2013 cover featuring Naomi Campbell. Minus the hideous wig, Ms. Campbell is giving it to you like it’s the 90’s. Iconic.
