Nadia Rose is at the forefront of a new wave of young female rappers. Making her voice heard in the UK, and due to hit the US this year, her music is influenced both by her African-Caribbean heritage and her roots in Croydon.

Share this article with Google PlusHaven’t we all at some point spent New Year’s Eve in a traffic jam in the city, unable to get to the party by midnight, having spent a load on dressing up and drinks, only to shuffle back home before 2am pretending to have had the time of our lives? And haven’t we also had some of our most memorable evenings at the turn of the year? Below, names from TV, film and music share their NYE memories, the good and bad, and their wishes for the coming season.
It’s fitting that Mariah Carey has a Christmas tour – because now the world can finally see why she is the Queen of Christmas. Before I met Mariah, my Christmases involved carol singers, crappily wrapped gifts, St Paul’s (if we could be arsed), maybe a random ice rink and the Queen’s speech. But all my Christmases literally came at once when, after meeting Mariah in 1998, she invited me to spend Christmas with her family.
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".
