    Returning to the music scene after a hard-earned hiatus, Eurythmics' Annie Lennox is back with her first album in four years: Nostalgia, a collection of covers, is set to release on October 21st in the US. A longtime beacon for the LGBTQIA community and feminist causes, Lennox's epic contributions to the music world are matched only by her admirable and far-reaching activist efforts. In a candid Q&A with PrideSource, the melodic and humanitarian powerhouse discussed her discomfort with artists, like Beyonce, who may be selling "feminism" short via platforms like her notorious VMA performance.

    "I see a lot of it as them taking the word hostage and using it to promote themselves, but I don't think they necessarily represent wholeheartedly the depths of feminism." Beyonce vocalizing her solidarity with feminist ideals, and proclaiming feminism is what Lennox describes as, "I would call that 'feminist lite.' L-I-T-E. I'm sorry. It's tokenistic to me."

    Labels and tokens and misunderstandings aside, if Lennox's forthcoming album is anything close to as refreshing and honest as her recent comments, it is something that the whole world should hear.
