A Lady Gaga outfit can mean a lot of things: an artistic statement, a conversation starter, a fashion faux pas. But it’s also a shield, a way to deflect attention from the person wearing it. For Lady Gaga, who has made headlines by wearing a meat dress, cross-dressing as alter ego Jo Calderone, and “incubating” in an egg for an alleged three days, it was a way to control the conversation. With her fifth album, 2016’s Joanne, that conversation changed.
Rostam Batmanglij is not afraid of a nice, long pause. The 33-year-old former Vampire Weekend member and producer may move fast when it comes to collaborating with others, having worked with an impressive array of artists including Frank Ocean, Solange, HAIM, Hamilton Leithauser, Carly Rae Jepsen and Santigold. But he is deliberate, to say the least, with his own words.
Daily Dose is your daily source for the one song you absolutely, positively need to hear every day. Curated by the Paste Music Team. Brooklyn-via-Seattle garage-psych band Acid Tongue’s debut album, Babies, isn’t out until Oct. 13 on Freakout Records, but today the group released its first single, “If I Really Loved Her.”It’s a catchy, laidback ode to devotion that reminds us to hang on to the ones who’ll stand by us no matter what. “Don’t I know it, I’m hard to love,” frontman Guy Keltner sings.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
