Michelle Chubb, Indigenous Activist, Challenges White-Centric History
In the vast landscape of social media, Michelle Chubb, renowned as the Indigenous Baddie, emerges as a multifaceted force challenging narratives about Indigenous communities. Beyond the realms of modeling and influencing, Michelle is a dedicated activist and public speaker who not only highlights the captivating beauty of Indigenous cultures but passionately addresses the intricate challenges faced by these communities. As a member of the Swampy Cree from Bunibonibee Cree Nation, Michelle serves as a bridge between worlds, sharing her unique experiences and shedding light on the historical distortions that have long plagued Indigenous representation.
As Thanksgiving approached, Michelle took center stage, not to partake in the conventional festivities but to articulate a poignant perspective often overlooked by mainstream media. For her and many in Indigenous communities, Thanksgiving is not a cause for celebration, given its historical baggage. Michelle emphasized that the commonly propagated narrative of the 1621 Thanksgiving feast is rife with omissions and distortions, predominantly narrated by white voices. She drew attention to the fleeting cooperation between European colonists and Indigenous communities, giving way to a painful legacy of violence and massacres. Michelle’s stance prompts a crucial examination of historical accuracy and the imperative to acknowledge the multifaceted history behind seemingly innocuous holidays.
Growing Up Indigenous
Michelle’s narrative unfolds against the backdrop of two contrasting worlds – the bustling city life and the quieter, often overlooked reservation. Visiting the reservation during summers and winters, she keenly observed the divergent care available to people in these two settings. Disparities in healthcare, the exorbitant cost of food in remote areas, and the necessity for hunting and fishing as means of survival became vivid markers of the challenges faced by Indigenous communities. These observations fueled Michelle’s determination to make a difference, to bridge the gap, and to advocate for the marginalized voices of her people.
Using TikTok for Change
The advent of TikTok provided Michelle with a powerful platform to voice the struggles of Indigenous communities. It became a medium through which she could amplify the issues that too often remained hidden from the mainstream gaze. With a fervent desire to bring about change, Michelle used her influence to spotlight critical problems, such as the exploitation of Indigenous resources by major corporations when communities were at their most vulnerable. Her advocacy extended beyond the reservations to the city life, dismantling the myth that urban living offered an inherent advantage for Indigenous individuals. Moreover, she fearlessly tackled the harrowing issue of missing Indigenous women, a deeply personal concern that resonated with her own fears during her formative years.
Michelle boldly confronted the pervasive misrepresentation of Indigenous people in the media, a misrepresentation that had deeply affected her perception growing up. The incomplete and often skewed historical narratives perpetuated by mainstream media fueled a longing for accurate representation. Her educational journey included discovering the untold stories of residential schools and the buffalo massacre – critical chapters omitted from standard curricula. Michelle’s commitment to dispelling misconceptions and educating others underscores the importance of accurately portraying Indigenous history to foster understanding and unity.
Cultural Respect and Boundaries
Woven into Michelle’s narrative are personal anecdotes that exemplify the cultural insensitivity faced by Indigenous individuals. From being asked to dress as Pocahontas during Halloween to people touching her hair without permission, these instances underscore the need for greater cultural respect and awareness. Michelle stressed the importance of education as a tool for societal transformation, urging people to become more informed about Indigenous cultures. Her plea for respecting boundaries echoed the cultural nuances observed during powwows, where asking before touching regalia is a sign of respect.
In the ever-evolving landscape of social media activism, Michelle Chubb, the Indigenous Baddie, stands as a beacon of change, reshaping narratives, challenging stereotypes, and advocating for a more inclusive and respectful society. With a unique blend of personal experiences, historical insights, and a commitment to education, Michelle inspires us to question conventional narratives, celebrate diversity, and embark on a collective journey toward understanding and unity. Her story not only highlights the power of individual voices but also underscores the transformative potential of social media when harnessed for positive change. Michelle Chubb, through her activism, encourages us all to be active participants in creating a world that embraces the richness and complexity of Indigenous cultures.

Sartorial Excellence and Genre-Bending Nominees:

Notable nominees such as boygenius, SZA, Victoria Monet, Brandy Clark, and Janelle Monáe are celebrated not just for their musical prowess but also for their unique fashion statements.
The absence of male dominance in major nominations signals a shift towards recognizing and acknowledging the influence of music loved by young women. The nominations list challenges traditional norms, emphasizing diversity and inclusivity, especially in genres historically dominated by men.
Notable Nominees and Surprising Omissions:
Billie Eilish leads the pack with six nominations, showcasing her versatile talent and significant contributions to the soundtrack of the film “Barbie.” The nomination of songs from the Greta Gerwig blockbuster’s soundtrack, collectively earning eleven nominations, points towards a potential sweep by the avatar of change/no change: Barbie.
However, the article questions the inexplicable omission of Latin music from the top categories, highlighting a nearsightedness that seems uncharacteristic of the year. The focus on gender equity is lauded, but the piece wonders whether this shift will be a lasting change or a temporary deviation from the norm.
Album of the Year Predictions:
The Album of the Year category boasts an eclectic mix of nominees, including Jon Batiste, boygenius, Miley Cyrus, Lana Del Rey, Janelle Monáe, Olivia Rodrigo, Taylor Swift, and SZA.

Ice Spice emerges as a strong contender, embodying the year’s musical vibe.
Rock, R&B, and Rap Categories:
The analysis of the Best Rock Song category reflects on the identity crisis facing the rock genre, with nominations spanning established veterans to artists whose relationship with traditional rock and roll is less clear-cut. The R&B categories face scrutiny for their confusing distinctions between “traditional,” “progressive,” and “straight-up” R&B, raising questions about the purpose of these designations.
The rap categories showcase a mix of predictable perennials and underappreciated but deserving artists. However, the absence of women in the Best Rap Album category and the oversight of notable independent artists underscore the industry’s challenges in recognizing diverse talents fully.
Alternative Jazz, Country, and Global Music Categories:
The introduction of the Alternative Jazz category highlights a canny and confounding addition, with nominees like Louis Cole and Kurt Elling pushing the boundaries of the genre. The Best Country Song category reflects the changing landscape of country music, with artists like Brandy Clark challenging traditional norms.
The new Música Mexicana Album category acknowledges the rise of corridos tumbados but raises eyebrows with the omission of artists who have collaborated and innovated in the genre. The Best African Music Performance category marks a positive step towards recognizing the continent’s diverse sonic reverberations, aligning with the global influence of African rhythms.
Classical Music Evolution:
The classical music categories showcase a surprisingly progressive trend, with a majority of nominations featuring 20th and 21st-century compositions. The increased inclusion of artists and composers of color reflects a positive shift in the classical field, moving towards greater diversity and representation.
The 2024 Grammy Nominations promise an exciting and diverse lineup, challenging industry norms and celebrating a wide range of musical talents. As we eagerly await the awards ceremony on February 4th in Los Angeles, the music world is poised for a night that may mark a turning point in recognizing and embracing the evolving landscape of music.
“Now and Then Beatles” Release Their Final Melodic Ode to Lost Love
In a bittersweet postscript to their illustrious career, the legendary Beatles have unveiled “Now and Then,” a song that resurfaces from the depths of time to tug at our heartstrings. This melancholic masterpiece serves as the group’s swan song, marking the end of an era and celebrating the enduring legacy of their music.
The latest addition to the Beatles’ catalog, “Now and Then,” is not just another song. It’s a sonic time capsule that transcends the boundaries of time and artistry. This remarkable piece of music is the result of a creative endeavor that started back in the 1970s, long after the Fab Four disbanded. John Lennon, one of the band’s iconic members, initially recorded a piano-and-vocal demo, which eventually found its way to the surviving Beatles in 1994 through the efforts of Yoko Ono.
The song’s evolution continued in 1995, when Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr embarked on a journey to weave a new musical tapestry around Lennon’s original recording. Their efforts were not without obstacles, as Harrison initially expressed frustration, dismissing the project as “rubbish.” The primary challenge was the quality of the audio, with Lennon’s voice entangled in a muddied piano accompaniment. However, technology in the 2020s came to the rescue. Using cutting-edge software, Peter Jackson successfully isolated Lennon’s vocals from the mono track, offering newfound clarity and precision.
In the studio, McCartney and Starr breathed new life into “Now and Then.” They fused the original 1995 tracks with fresh recordings from 2022, introduced a compelling string-orchestra arrangement, and drew upon the Beatles’ archives for harmonious backing vocals from timeless classics like “Here, There and Everywhere,” “Eleanor Rigby,” and “Because.” The result is a compelling auditory journey that touches the soul.
Lennon’s emotive and poignant vocals lead the charge in “Now and Then,” as he sings, “If I make it through, it’s all because of you,” invoking a sense of longing and yearning for a departed lover or friend. The melody, set in a minor key, begins simply with piano, guitar, and drums, reminiscent of the iconic “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” The composition gradually unfurls, expanding into a lush soundscape with orchestral strings and McCartney’s nuanced piano play, evoking the essence of their timeless classics like “I Am the Walrus” and “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”
In its final form, “Now and Then Beatles” simplifies Lennon’s emotional exchange, omitting self-doubt and concerns. Instead, it conveys a more hopeful message, with the concluding vocal stating, “If I make it through, it’s all because of you.” The song culminates with a surprising and syncopated string phrase, followed by a subtle voice that quietly affirms, “Good one!”
“Now and Then Beatles” is, at its core, a testament to nostalgia, capturing the essence of a bygone era. Its significance transcends mere musical quality; it serves as a poignant reminder of the band’s unparalleled synergy, both musically and personally, which has now been irrevocably lost to time.
Unlike the Beatles’ groundbreaking work of the 1960s, “Now and Then” explores themes of separation and the finality brought about by mortality. While it may not rival the band’s previous masterpieces, it offers a glimpse into the enduring impact of their music. The Beatles’ legacy lives on, and “Now and Then” stands as a testament to the timelessness of their artistry.
In conclusion, “Now and Then Beatles” delivers a powerful and emotionally charged final chapter, honoring the band’s iconic journey and the indelible mark they left on the world of music. This release encapsulates the essence of the Beatles – a band that will forever be cherished for their contribution to the world of music.

The song’s brilliance lies in Swift’s unique perspective—she sees the media’s obsession as a sign that she’s on the right path to finding “the one.” It’s an anthem of empowerment, turning the tables on those who seek to tarnish her reputation.
This track delves into the complexities of love, portraying both the highs and lows as invaluable experiences. Swift ingeniously plays with the term “lovesick,” emphasizing the depth of her love to the point of physical illness. “Slut!” paints a vivid picture of an unforgettable love symbolized by “Handprints in wet cement.” These words carry the profound desire for a love that leaves an indelible mark, whether in reality or cherished memories. It’s a whimsical, carefree outlook on love, setting it apart from the rest of the album.
Is “Slut!” About Harry Styles?
It wouldn’t be a Taylor Swift song without fans dissecting every lyric for potential references to her ex-lovers. “Slut!” presents a unique challenge in this regard, as it alludes to her past relationships while maintaining a broader focus on love and fame.
In the line, “Everyone wants him, that was my crime,” Swift poignantly addresses the media’s relentless scrutiny of her love life, which resembles a crime itself. This phrase might remind fans of her relationship with Harry Styles, as a significant portion of “1989” is thought to be about him. When they dated in 2012, Styles was a member of the world’s most popular boy band, One Direction, and their high-profile romance made headlines.
Yet, “Slut!” transcends any specific individual and taps into Swift’s personal experiences and her complex relationship with the media. It’s a powerful commentary on love, fame, and resilience that speaks to the artist’s journey and her ability to rise above the noise.
Unlocking the Genius of “Slut!”
“Flamingo pink, Sunrise Boulevard. Clink, clink, being this young is art.”
“Half asleep, takin’ your time. In the tangerine, neon light, this is luxury.”
These are not just lyrics; they are brushstrokes on a canvas, painting a vivid picture of Swift’s world and emotions. “Slut!” explores the multifaceted nature of love, fame, and personal strength, revealing an artist at the height of her storytelling prowess.
As the world continues to dissect every verse, every note, and every beat of “Slut!” one thing is clear: Taylor Swift has once again left an indelible mark on the music industry, challenging norms and redefining her narrative in a way that only she can. With this empowering anthem, Swift invites us all to rise above societal expectations and embrace our true selves, making “Slut!” not just a song but a movement.
In Conclusion: “Slut!” – A Triumph of Love and Resilience
Taylor Swift’s “Slut!” is not just a song—it’s a powerful declaration of self-empowerment and an ode to the complexities of love and fame. While the world may speculate about its references, the true genius of “Slut!” lies in its ability to captivate, inspire, and empower listeners of all backgrounds.
As Swifties and music enthusiasts worldwide continue to dissect the lyrics and delve into the enigma of “Slut!”, one thing is certain: Taylor Swift’s legacy as a trailblazer in the music industry remains firmly intact. In this anthem of resilience, she challenges societal norms, redefines her narrative, and invites us all to embrace our true selves.
Taylor Swift’s “Slut!” is not just a song; it’s a triumph of love and resilience that will echo for generations to come.

Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift: The Chiefs’ Winning ‘Good Luck Charm
In a world where celebrity news and sports often collide, the recent public fixation on the budding connection between Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end Travis Kelce and pop superstar Taylor Swift has captured the imagination of fans and media alike. Eager to capitalize on the phenomenon, the National Football League (NFL) and its TV partners are keen to make the most of what has come to be known as “Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift.” This article explores the unexpected synergy between the world of football and the global music sensation, delving into the implications for both parties and the broader cultural impact.
The Unorchestrated Connection:
The NFL has been quick to clarify that it played no role in orchestrating the connection between Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift. It’s a storyline that has taken on a life of its own, drawing the attention of both avid football fans and Swift’s dedicated followers, affectionately known as Swifties. The couple has been relatively quiet about their actual status, but the intrigue around their budding relationship continues to grow.
Travis Kelce’s Perspective:
Travis Kelce, the star tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, acknowledged the fascination with their connection, stating that “everybody is having fun with it.” While he didn’t delve into the details of their relationship, he acknowledged the genuine interest people have in Taylor Swift.
The NFL’s Attempt to Capitalize:
The NFL, recognizing the potential of this unique situation, is eager to be a part of the excitement. Social media monitoring teams within the league have been actively engaging with fans and tracking memes and trends related to the “Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift” phenomenon. This collaboration between two passionate fan bases, Taylor Swift’s Swifties and NFL enthusiasts, presents an exciting opportunity for the league to expand its reach, particularly among Gen Z and women.
Marketing experts, however, are divided on whether this connection will result in a long-term boost for the NFL. Some believe that while it may generate interest initially, it’s unlikely to fundamentally change perceptions of the sport.
The NFL’s Commitment to Inclusivity:
The NFL has been making efforts to become more inclusive and appeal to a broader audience. These efforts include promoting flag football and increasing the representation of women in coaching staff positions. While the league has faced negative publicity in the past, it remains committed to its values and ongoing improvement.
Taylor Swift’s Star Power:
Taylor Swift’s influence cannot be underestimated. She has achieved remarkable success as a pop artist, becoming the first artist to hold all the top 10 spots on the Billboard 100 chart. With over 270 million Instagram followers, her social media presence dwarfs that of the NFL. Travis Kelce has also seen a boost in his online following thanks to the recent attention.
A Powerful Celebrity-Athlete Pairing:
The connection between Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift stands out among celebrity-athlete pairings. Swift’s global appeal and Kelce’s status as one of the NFL’s best players have created a unique dynamic. In an era of constant media coverage via smartphones, this relationship has garnered more attention than many previous pairings in the world of sports and entertainment.
Courting the Gen Z Audience:
One challenge the NFL faces in capitalizing on this trend is the authenticity factor among Gen Z audiences. This generation values authenticity and may perceive the NFL’s efforts as self-serving. The league must tread carefully to avoid appearing inauthentic or cringeworthy to this demographic.
Some observers have raised concerns about overexposure. The NFL’s social media accounts have incorporated Swift lyrics and highlighted the Chiefs’ success when she attended games. Even Travis Kelce himself questioned whether the NFL was overdoing it.
The connection between Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift, while initially generating significant buzz, may ultimately be a fleeting fascination rather than a game-changer for the NFL. Nonetheless, it serves as a testament to the power of celebrity and the NFL’s ongoing efforts to engage with diverse audiences. Whether it leads to a lasting boost in NFL viewership remains to be seen, but for now, “Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift” continue to capture the public’s imagination, reminding us of the intriguing ways in which sports and entertainment can intersect in the modern age.

Remake Release of Music Icon Greenfield’s Hit Song “EITM (Feat. LISO)” Becomes The Jam Of The Year For Anticipating Fans
LOS ANGELES, CA – Frank Deville Greenfield & LISO Release “EITM (feat. LISO),” a reboot of Greenfield’s original “Early In The Morning” hit song that was originally produced by Greenfield, a 3-time award-winning music icon who was also the lead guitar player for The Gap Band and currently The Family of Funk. This dance track remake also features rap interludes by LISO (Thuliso Dingwall) from HBO’s “The Wire.”
Fans are raving about this latest drop that’s quickly making waves on all streaming platforms, radio, and music blogs. Tune in to see what the hype is about and what’s next.
“Early in the Morning” is a scintillating song with a captivating start that reminds me of the R&B era. It’s a future jam that is both soothing and upbeat, which is an unbeatable combo! The meaningful lyrics. “I was foolish when I was younger, I didn’t know I lost you, till you’re gone,” depicts how the values of things skyrocket, once we take them for granted. It’s a song that both makes you groove and indulge in some self-introspection.
AN UNMATCHED COLLAB
The Family of Funk (FOF) and Iconic Guitarist/Producer Frank Greenfield was the Creative Producer for “The DentMakers,” and Conjunction Entertainment, whose career launched with the release of Timbalands’ “Shock Value,” which went six times Platinum and reached #3 on Billboard R&B. From there, Grammy nominations for “Tri-ni-tee 5:7” and a GMA/DOVE Award for Best Urban Recorded Song of the Year for “Listen,” that peaked #9 on Billboard Gospel. Greenfield continued to collaborate with top-charting albums and top Pop R&B artists such as:Beyonce, Usher, Kelly Rowland, Timbaland, Mindless Behavior, Keri Hilson, The Pussycat Dolls, Celine Dion, Demi Lovato, Onyx.
His impressive list of credits quickly caught the attention of Universal Music Group who signed Greenfield, also landing a publishing deal with Missing Link Music. To date, Greenfield continues to not only work with the industry’s most notable talent, but also on highly successful television and film projects, some of which include: The Primetime Emmy Awards, Dateline NBC, Our Big Wedding, Drillbit Taylor, Secret Life of an American Teenager, The Good Wife, Shameless, New Girl, Lincoln Heights, Night Rider, Entourage, Community, Bad Girls Club, Ben and Kate, and The Reluctant Fundamentalist.
In fact, he recently wrote the theme song for the hit television series, Brooklyn 99 that earned Beyond his musical gift. Greenfield also has written music for a wide-range of music artists and genres, such as: Samantha Mumba, Kelly Rowland and Michele Williams of Destiny’s Child, Rihanna, Usher, Beyonce, Toni Braxton, and Onyx.
Greenfield previously worked on music for Mindless Behavior and Leona Lewis, as well as recording and preparing to tour with several new artists. Overall, having received Gold and
Platinum Records for his work with Interscope, Blackground, Universal Music, and Musicworld, and most recently the recipient of The Las Vegas Film Awards “Best Music Video” for FOF’s latest hit song “Early in the Morning,” there’s certainly no slowing Greenfield down.
“LISO” is the stage name of singer, songwriter, and Actor (HBO The Wire “Kenard”) Thuliso Dingwall. He got recognition after posting many of his songs on YouTube under the username LISO and winning the “Music For Water” song contest in 2020. Inspired by legendary Michael Jackson to become a singer, he was later influenced by R&B stars like The Weekend, Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake, and Neo. He started his career as an actor on the popular HBO series “The Wire” playing “Kennard.”
LISO will be releasing his first single in the summer of 2023. LISO is currently working with vocal coach/producer and worship leader Teresa “Tess” Escoto. He is currently in the studio with DC Rappers TRU and Shooda on a few projects which will also be released in fall 2022. His next release will be a collaboration with Shooda.
