BLUE, Period: An Interview With Ricky Rebel Comments (0)
  Ricky-Rebel Rickey-Rebel-NA Ricky Rebel Blue Album, montage, by Graphics Metropolis, web Ricky-Rebel-surprise Ricky-Rebel-Blue

Ricky Rebel is described as a sort of Adam Lambert/Lady Gaga hybrid, but in spite of his young age, he's been in the industry longer than both of them. I first encountered Ricky when he was in the boy No_authority_shirtless_group_in_underwear1band No Authority (pictured in underwear), a group signed to Madonna's Maverick (RIP!) and mentored by Michael Jackson.

I would've done anything for NA (and gave them crazy amounts of coverage) if only because their manager had once been in an episode of The Golden Girls, but I also really liked the boys themselves.

Ricky was a stand-out in the teen pop scene, a true showman, so it was not surprising to me 10 years later when he re-emerged as a solo artist with a major dance hit (“Geisha Dance”) and a thoughtfully crafted, musically sound point of view.

Now, Ricky is releasing The Blue Album, filled with adventurous dance music that isn't a guilty pleasure but an unqualified pleasure. He is a visual artist who does not overly rely on his admittedly fun razzle and on-stage dazzle, but one whose music you could enjoy with your eyes closed.

I was happy to chat with Ricky all these years after we crossed paths at the teen magazine I ran; I've always wanted to do follow-up interviews with the kids I worked with, so getting to debrief one who's gone on to bigger and better things was a real pleasure...

Greatest Pop Divas: There's No Such Thing As A Definitive List Comments (0)

Madonna

Buzzfeed's latest diva ranking is pretty solid, in that Madonna easily makes #1. The fact that it is a definitive ranking of pop divas makes her the inevitable champeen.

I would rearrange the list a bit...
