• Before her Super Bowl performance, Beyoncé dropped a surprise new single and video over the weekend—“Formation” already has eight million views (and counting!). [YouTube]

• Also, her dancers during the halftime show wore outfits inspired by the Black Panthers and took a minute to pose with a sign demanding justice for Mario Woods, a San Francisco man shot by police. [SFist]

• In a New Hampshire rally over the weekend, Madeleine Albright came down hard on young women who are voting for Bernie Sanders. So did Gloria Steinem during an interview with Bill Maher. [New York Times]

• Speaking of which, young people are indeed more likely to be voting for Bernie Sanders—in the Iowa caucus, 70 percent of millenials voted for Sanders. [Guardian]

• The new curvier and taller Barbies are certainly not a “revolution,” writes Raina Lipsitz. [AlJazeera]

• An interesting-looking new comedy, Parched, centers on the stories of Indian women who are terrorized by the men in their lives. [PS Mag]

On the Media host Brooke Gladstone talks about her fear of boredom and her approach to editing in this great interview. [Longform]
