Idolator is a music blog. Created by the blog network Gawker Media in August 2006, Idolator was later sold to rival blog network Buzz Media (later titled SpinMedia), which also owns Stereogum[1] and Spin. In September 2016, the website was sold to Hive Media along with Buzznet and PureVolume.[2]

From the 2007 departure of original head writer Brian Raftery until November 2009, the blog's head writer was Maura Johnston,[3] who was the sole remaining original contributor for the blog before her departure.[2] In April 2009, other contributors to the blog were laid off by Buzz Media, with the exception of Chris Molanphy, who offered to continue writing his 100 & Single column on a voluntary basis until Johnston's departure.[4]

Idolator has had several moments of controversy, including one that was initiated by a post made by the blog that claimed that a post made by Wired News made several predictions that Idolator believed were widely inaccurate.[5] The blog also took advantage of controversy surrounding the Pazz & Jop critics' poll by The Village Voice in November 2006.[6]
