You talk about a woman you can’t take your eyes off of when she’s dancing, this is usually the sign of a great performer. Is there a female performer who you think fits the bill?


Beyoncé can do no wrong in my eyes. You know what it is about Beyoncé that people just can’t put their finger on? It’s that when Beyoncé’s on stage, she has so much confidence in herself. She knows so very much that she’s amazing that she’s not afraid to get ugly. You know what I mean? Not afraid to do something that looks kind of silly. She’s not spending her whole time up there trying to be gorgeous. That gets old. Okay, you’re a woman and you have on this outfit, you’re pretty. We’ve got that already, so stop trying to sell me pretty and perform. That was the thing that was so amazing about Tina Turner. People used to say Tina Turner performs like a guy. And that’s because a guy that’s in it, he does not care about what he looks like, it’s about the passion and energy of the record and that’s the way that Beyoncé performs. The sexy is a given, we got that already. What else you got? And Beyoncé gives you the rest of it. Okay, sexy’s out of the way, so now I’m gonna give you this power, give you this raw energy, you know? So that’s the reason why Beyoncé is who she is. It’s not a lot of women who have the guts to be that cause that’s a very gutsy move like, ‘I’m gonna get ugly on stage? Oh God, no. How’s my hair?’ Can’t show any cracks. Beyoncé doesn’t care. And I love that about her.

Hollaback Girl” was inspired and written in response to Courtney Love referring to Gwen as a “cheerleader” in an interview with Seventeen magazine saying, “Being famous is just like being in high school. But I’m not interested in being the cheerleader. I’m not interested in being Gwen Stefani. She’s the cheerleader, and I’m out in the smoker shed.” Gwen responded in an interview with UK’s NME saying, “You know, someone one time called me a cheerleader, negatively, and I’ve never been a cheerleader. So I was, like, “OK, fuck you. You want me to be a cheerleader? Well, I will be one then. And I’ll rule the whole world, just you watch me.” Gwen reached inside and wanted to write an attitude song regarding her intentions of making a solo record. She also believed that some No Doubt fans would be upset about her making albums on her own. After the writing and recording process, Gwen called “Hollaback Girl” the most “freshest attitude song [she had] heard in a long time.” In interviews following the song’s release, Gwen never disclosed what the exact meaning was behind the smash single. Media, critics and fans alike all had their own take on the song. “Hollaback Girl” debuted at #82 on April 2, 2005 on the Billboard Hot 100 and skyrocketed to #1 six weeks after it’s release, making it the the fastest-rising single to reach the top of the year. It remained at #1 for a month straight and introduced Gwen to huge demographics including urban radio. “Hollaback Girl” also came in at #2 on the year end chart, only coming behind Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together”. Not only did the single make history as being the first to sell over a million digital downloads, “Hollaback Girl” also went 5x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Huge!

People think feminism means that there’s a group of women somewhere that want to take trousers with pockets away from men and give them to women, and give men trousers with fake pockets, while in reality feminism is the general idea that everyone should have trousers with pockets, because pockets are awesome.

"That’s how I write. I’ve got a purple yoga mat, and I have a little table. I hoover; I find odd places to polish. Places that I haven’t seen in a long time; sometimes parts of my own body. And there’s a lot of crying in fetal positions.”- Emma Thompson
