Lilith Unfair

What happened, Ladies?

Remember when Lilith Fair was all the rage? Girls were singing about empowerment and women's rights.

What about now? Is Lady Gaga the new spokesperson for women everywhere?

Has the spandex unitard replaced unshaven armpits?

Hell, even the Spice Girls had "Girl Power"; now women's rights come down to "If you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it."

I don't know that today's female superstars even know what "Zig-a-zig Ah!" means.

It seems that all that progress has been reversed. In fact, I only see one similarity between the dirty hippie movement of the late 90's and the glammed-up dance music of today -

"I kissed a girl and I liked it."

i just heard about that girl kesha, who appears to be a prostitute. not sure if you've heard the lyrics to her "song" (i use "song" loosely)? it is like a 1980's white rapper wrote it and a 14 year old horny kid produced it while giggling the whole time.

she is everything that is wrong with the american music industry... not because she sings about drinking, sex, and being vacuous, but because she sucks at singing, sucks at writing lyrics, sucks at dancing, and apparently sucks at life given her subject matter.

i like drinking. i like partying. i like bars and nightlife. my wife played me her song last night though on youtube. i started getting odd anger-twitches and felt so closed in that i just walked out of the room, as it was the fastest way to make the weird tones and shrill, whiny voice stop.

holy shit i'm old, because i just wrote a 4 paragraph bitch session about a pop star who will be broke, diseased, and pregnant within 5 months.

I was so disappointed when I first found out that Katy Perry was a tarted-up little fameball! When I first heard the song, I was imagining she was a hot-androgynous singer-songwriter having a genuine lesbian moment!

Technically, it's "if you liked it you should have put a ring on it" - as in, don't get jealous now because Beyonce scored Jay Z when you had your chance.

Have you seen the Bad Romance video? At the end she torches the place and has fire shooting out of her tatas. Zig Zag AHHHH!
