When Ariana Grande arrived in 2014 with her funky pop-anthem 'Problem', the world got a new face for mainstream music. She was the the young star every girl wanted to be. And plenty of boys, too. Years later, she became on of the biggest names in the business - and learned to break the rules for good.
Following a year of reinvention and enterting a new chapter in her life, NBHAP editor Kai met the charismatic singer right before her Berlin show to talk about female strength, artist imagery and motherhood.
From November the 1st on the historic Rixdorf quarte in Berlin Neukölln will turn into a space for lectures, panels, workshop and performances to support female, trans and non-binary artistry around the globe! We are looking very forward for three days filled with a well curated programme – and as it is always hard to choose between single offers, here are our Top 5 must-see events!
They say better late than never – so when summer calls its last afternoon sunshine to hide and lets autumn take over, we all know: from now on, it is time to hit the closed venues for concerts, parties and thrills. And while I enjoy the last rays of light on my body, a particular weekend in end of August still takes me back sometimes to when the base could be felt all night long – next to cranes and a beautiful lake. The WHOLE United Queer Festival is stuck in a part of my mind and the memories of the event are warm, yet puzzled. Mainly because it showed once more how stiff today’s society is.
Just when you thought festival season comes to an end, we’ve got a 3-day-exprerience to look forward in autumn: the DICE Conference + Festival in Berlin to support female, trans and non-binary artistry in the music field! Here's why you should get excited about this.
We don’t know about you but for us festival season is not over yet. From August 24th to 27th, NBHAP will visit Europe’s first queer festival for electronic music to celebrate uniqueness and individuality.
While many festivals are happening in your homeland or even hometown, this year we got the chance to took the plane and flying east – straight to the beautiful city of Cluj-Napoca into the electronic wilderness of Electric Castle.
The month of June is pride month and we are celebrating diversity, equality and love just like everyday, but now even harder. Although we’ve accomplished more and more goals and are slowly moving towards a more secure place for LGBTQ+ people, there is still a long way to happy. NBHAP editor Kai met with one of pop's key figures of the movement.
Lately things got a bit calm around Ariana Grande. The singer did not only avoid public appeareances after finishing her Dangerous Woman World Tour in September 2017, but shut down most of her social media activity since the beginning of this year as well. Now she is back with her first musical material after the Manchester terror attack in May 2017.
You hate it or love it - but there is no in between when it comes to straight forward bubblegum pop bangers. Sugar candy for your ears and feet, those kind of songs are loud and filled with positive power. Lyrics can explore the wide and mostly difficult world of love, dreams or celebrating yourself.
