Madonna is starting to look something like a creepy uncle who doesn’t know when to quit with the pinching, kissing and too-long hugs. Over the weekend, the iconic singer launched a reportedly impromptu smooch on Drake during a performance at Coachella. During his song “Madonna,” she appeared onstage to cheers and launched into a medley of her hits. So clearly, she was invited, as Drake sat on a chair in the middle of the stage to enjoy the show.
When Emily Witt turned 30, she faced the realization that marriage and kids might not be in the cards. Instead of falling into a Bridget Jones-inspired single-girl funk, the Brooklyn-based writer headed to San Francisco in search of her own adult sexual identity. On the west coast, Witt explored the worlds of webcamming and orgasmic meditation, partied with polyamorists, attended live sex shows and hooked up with a stranger at Burning Man. The self-proclaimed good girl went wildish.
If there’s one thing that Sarain Fox wants you to know about #NODAPL, it’s this: the fight to protect Standing Rock’s water supply has ramifications for everyone. “Indigenous people are fighting for water for millions of people and they’re doing so regardless of any of the wrongs that have been committed,” says Fox, the Anishinaabekwe host of Viceland’s Rise—a new documentary series about indigenous resistance and resilience that premieres on January 27.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
