    MUSE NEWS February 8, 2015     Beyoncé releases a remix for her iconic hit “Crazy In Love”. As a part of the 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack, Beyoncé released a more sinister, and sexier, version of the 2003 single. The track is a much slower and darker version of the original upbeat song that we all once strutted to back in the day. The soundtrack also features Bey’s own remix of her more recent song “Haunted”. Both tracks are a must hear and will be the perfect addition to your Valentine’s day playlist—after all, who could cover Beyoncé better than Beyoncé?

  • Theatre: On the Brink

    Theatre: On the Brink The Facebook event page for the second instalment of the all-student-run Drama Studio Series, Drama Studio Series on the Brink, states that “these shows are sure to spark some conversation”, and this is definitely the truth. As I entered the Rotunda Theatre to find a seat, I was pleasantly taken aback by the theatre’s daring stage configuration. It provoked strong feelings of intrigue, and I imagine the Directors had to work extremely hard to make it all work (I’ll leave it to you to see said challenge for yourself). If the stage configuration alone didn’t scream “defying conventions”, the wonderful pre-show soundtrack, compiled by sound designer…

    MUSE NEWS JANUARY 25 Kim Kardashian releases the official cover of her selfie book, “Selfish”. The idea for the book was (naturally) thought of by Kanye West, Kim’s number one fan. The cover shows Kardashian with wet, slicked back hair, perfect make up, and a pout, of course.       Rick Owens has freed the penis in his F/W 2015 show, earning him the unofficial name of #dickowens. The fashion world may have become desensitized to the occasional breast on the runway- such styling is just another part of fashion week. However, when Rick Owens recently sent four of his models out onto the runway with subtle peepholes cut…

  • Misogyny Takes The Internet

    Much has been buzzing around recently about the situation involving 13 fourth year Dalhousie Dentistry students who had been suspended from the university after inappropriate comments were posted in a group on Facebook. The comments, which have been deemed “misogynistic” and “sexually harassing”, were posted in the Class of 2015 Dalhousie Dentistry School Gentleman’s Club group on Facebook in December of 2014. The material, including sexually explicit comments towards female members in the Dentistry program and jokes about using chloroform to drug and rape classmates, have since been removed, and the students involved have been confronted. The university had initially restricted the students from attending clinical activities, and it was…

  • Êtes vous Charlie?

    Êtes vous Charlie? I don’t really have a witty way to begin this article because it’s about something that isn’t very funny, so as much as I’d like to use this as an opportunity to show you all that I’m a hilarious writer who you totally want to befriend and take out on a date and bestow a large pizza upon, I think it would be best for me to just stick to what I’m supposed to be writing about – Charlie Hebdo. At this point, you may be thinking, “Hey Nikki, you’re a privileged-as-hell white girl from the suburbs! What, exactly, do you have to contribute to the controversial…
