Divine, Kelis and the psychology of Neon Trees top our pop culture must-list for the month

Going Back to Oz

While Christopher Meloni makes a welcome return to TV with FOX's Surviving Jack, it prompted us to rediscover the actor on GLAAD-nominated series, Oz, on HBO Go. The show introduced viewers to a husky new star who was one-half of TV's most psychotic love affair.

Celebrating Poetry

Celebrate a full month of poetry with celebrations around the country, including at 92Y. The cultural community center is celebrating its 75th anniversary with events dedicated to the oral literary art. So grab a copy of John Ashbery's work and head uptown.

Polling the Stage

It’s time for the most epic lunchtime poll: Is Heathers the Musical the most very thing to happen to Broadway starting April 2? The answer is, quite possibly, yes.

Getting to Know the New Prince

There’s a new man in Westeros and he’s one smoking, sexually open prince with unclear intentions and even more unclear bedroom preferences. But one thing is, Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) going to add a bunch of new sex and drama to the fourth season of Game of Thrones, which premieres April 6.

Living Large on the Small Screen

More than just a drag queen, Divine (along with John Waters) was an entertainer who forged a new genre of comedy that was camp, subversive, and punk. I Am Divine, Jeffrey Schwartz’s true story of the most beautiful woman in the world comes to the small screen on April 8.

Revisiting Uganda

The powerful documentary, God Loves Uganda, from award-winning director Rogers Ross Williams makes its the small screen. The touching yet horrifying story gets an exclusive iTunes release on April 15.  

Cooking with Kelis

The singer is (finally) back with a new studio album, Food (April 18), that has us salvating. With songs like "Jerk Ribs," "Friday Fish Fry" and "Biscuits N’ Gravy," the singer has created a musical feast for fans’ ears.

Going Back to Black

The surprise television hit of last season wasn’t on Netflix it was on BBC America. Orphan Black proved that sci-fi series aren't limited to the world of SyFy. In fact, this one flips the genre (and theories about clones) on its head. The show returns April 19.

The Psychology of Neon Trees

While Tyler Glenn's coming out certainly has garnered the attention of new fans, its his bands mix of new wave, pop and dance music that continues to pique our interest. The band returns to the scene with their new album, Pop Psychology, on April 22. 

Getting Meaner With Age

Turning 10 is the Tina Fey-written high school comedy that propelled four girls into teen stardom and gave America one of the most perplexing stars of our time. While Lindsay Lohan struggles with sobriety, Mean Girls makes its way to Netflix for its 10th anniversary.
