Yesterday & Today

Yesterday & Today is a SWAGGER podcast series in which founder and editor, Sian-Pierre Regis, and resident shade queen Cassandra Alcide discuss all things pop-culture podcast with a #TBT twist.

YOYOYOYO! This week we're talking about...

1. Remembering Prince's music, influence and shade.

2. Beyoncé's "Lemonade" movie...or musical?
Then we discuss MIA's most recent comments on the Black Lives Matter movement. Via The Evening Standard:
"It’s interesting that in America the problem you’re allowed to talk about is Black Lives Matter. It’s not a new thing to me—it’s what Lauryn Hill was saying in the 1990s, or Public Enemy in the 1980s. Is Beyoncé or Kendrick Lamar going to say Muslim Lives Matter? Or Syrian Lives Matter? Or this kid in Pakistan matters? That’s a more interesting question. And you cannot ask it on a song that’s on Apple, you cannot ask it on an American TV programme, you cannot create that tag on Twitter, Michelle Obama is not going to hump you back."

3. Recapping NY's very sloppy primary and what went wrong.

4. All the tea we know about Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan.

5. #TBT: We look back on the moment when Prince kicked Kim Kardashian off his stage in 2011 LOLOLOL.
