J. Lo And Women In Music Videos; Kelis Plays SXSW; Nina Simone's Civil Rights Legacy

Friday, March 21, 2014

In this episode: Jennifer Lopez has a new album on the way in June, and the pop star and actress recently dropped her first music video for her new song, “I Luh Ya Papi.” It’s the latest example of a music video that’s got a point to make about gender stereotypes in the music industry, says writer Daisy Buchanan, who recently wrote about the video for the British publication The Telegraph.

Then: With this year's South By Southwest in the rearview mirror, some may be still getting back into a normal rhythm, or fighting off that lingering South By cold.

And, we revisit a favorite segment about the lasting legacy of Nina Simone herself, both in music and the Civil Rights Movement.
