Is there an afterlife? You better believe it - just look at Jaden Smith's dreadlocks. The bonafide rap star's beloved, bleached locs were officially sent to the guillotine back in April, but have had quite the posthumous adventure. They've walked the Met Gala red carpet, appeared on James Corden's show, and even scored a Louis Vuitton campaign. Where do the dreads get their beauty sleep when they're not working? At his mom and dad's Calabasas mansion, of course.
Art has always been a powerful force for social change. More recently, institutions themselves have been taking up the activist mantle and becoming sites for progressive dialogue. Sometimes the museum’s role is subtle, and sometimes it’s accidental. Sometimes they decide it’s best to take a backseat and hand the reins to radical young creatives. Scamming the Patriarchy at New York's New Museum falls into that last category.
In September, “a little queer black girl from the South Side of Chicago” became the first African-American woman to win the Emmy for writing in a comedy series. Lena Waithe — who shared the victory with Master of None co-creator Aziz Ansari — clearly still has roots in the city she name-dropped in that powerful Emmy speech. Her next project is a coming-of-age series about kids growing up in her hometown.
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".
