I am so SICK of the faux cat fights between female musicians. The latest is Lady Gaga vs. Xtina. Ugh. It’s like every time I see a feed about it, I get the visual of some dirty guy going “Oh yea, fight about who dresses weirder girls.” Please! I give props to Xtina for noting that all the media hype about her and Gaga is totally just to separate female musicians and make for raunchy gossip.
As she says ” There is room for all of us on everyone’s iPods. This is not the first time I have been unfairly pitted against another female artist but it will be the last time I comment on the matter. “Can’t hold us down….”” Via E! & Xtina.
RockherMag seems to be posting again! Yeah! Check it out for women in music awesomeness. Much like this blog.
Peaches on her music & women in pop music:
“It’s definitely a response to popular culture and the images of women…that’s how it all started out, you know, trying to find the missing link between the continuation riot grrrl but not just rehashing that sound, but incorporation electronic sounds that I love…I just wanted to fuse that stuff together.”
“The mainstream should move closer to me, I’m not gonna move closer to it.”
