At last a pop diva who isn’t channelling hookers and porn


I heard this song for the first time this evening. No doubt I’m one of the last to hear it – I certainly come after nearly 30 million YouTube plays. Anyway, it’s a great song. What’s nice is that it seems like a throwback to the time when women pop stars didn’t take virtually all their repertoire of moves and clothes from pole dancers, hookers and porn stars up there in their fuck me platform shoes. Strange that this is the post-feminist world. (That’s not a dig at feminism by the way, and offered in sorrow rather than anger.)

I wonder why it is that wonderful singers like Beyonce most particularly, singers who despite their extraordinary talents seem quite modest nevertheless, feel compelled to the most exaggerated kind of erotic pornographic carry on. Even in the case of really wholesome girls like Jessica Mauboy one can feel the gravitational pull of the genre even though she does a good job of resisting it.

In any event amidst the formulaic music and pouting of today, I really loved pretty much everything about this video.  Great song, great beat, and some actual levity, rather than pouting.

And paradoxically, it’s sexy as hell (IMO anyway). Puts me in mind of why I like the Beatles as I explained in this post a long long time ago, I can still remember how, That music used to make me smile – or something like that.

She’s washing a car in a fucking tanktop, and this is supposed to be an example of a non-whorey video?

This entire post is just the grumblings of an old man who doesn’t get it. FYI female entertainers have taken their cues from whores for thousands of years, it didn’t start with Madonna or Britney.

Totally agree – it’s well known after all that the tank top was the temple uniform of the priestesses of Astarte in Babylon. Personally, I’ve always thought that women who take off their burqas to wash cars are clearly harlots.

It’s still a worry that it is endorsing stupid wordy tatts as fashion statement for young men…
