King Princess: The New Queen Of Pop

Your new pop obsession has arrived

Impact 89 FM

Hayley Kiyoko might be (rightfully) the talk of the town with her new album Expectations, but watch out: there's a new pop artist on the block, and her name is King Princess.

Never heard of her? Then you must be living under a rock: between having Harry Styles tweet out her lyrics to dropping a new music video just this week, King Princess is gaining stardom the way I'm getting jealous that it's turning to summer in the US and getting colder and colder for me here in Chile--that is, exponentially.

New York raised but singing about universal themes, King Princess is up-and-coming in the music business through the power of her emotional lyrics, dramatic indie pop sound, and incredibly intimate music videos. She's already gained momentum with her first two singles, "1950" and "Talia," and she promises that's there's more good stuff on the way.

Another cool aspect of her music? It's openly queer, providing a successful role model for the LGBT community in a way that hasn't often been seen in the mainstream music scene before. King Princess is aware that she's taking on such a role –– her stage name itself is a play on gender roles, which she openly acknowledges in the previously linked I-D interview –– and such consciousness only makes me more excited to see what she'll do with her rapidly growing platform.

If you are interested in seeing more from King Princess, be sure to check out her official website, where tour dates and more information can be found. I'll see you at her Brooklyn show!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
