What is a "badass look at me" song?

I don't have the ass to pull it off.

That's the common denominator here.

You gotta have a great ass.

Have you ever listened to Pink?

She's a rock star.

She's got her rock moves.

And she's gonna show all you tonight.

She's alright.

And you're a tool.

Blow Me (One Last Kiss)- I think that qualifies.

Who said anything about her continuing to have hits? I just said to stop knocking her. Cyndi Lauper is awesome and is held up as being awesome, despite not having umpteen zillion hits.

And Darling HBK, it's perhaps just time to admit that Avril's career decline is one of life's great mysteries that can't be explained. It might just have been due to the fickleness of pop music. Sometimes people get famous for inexplicable reasons, and sometimes people fade away for inexplicable reasons.

I know you really want to know, but you may just never know.

And don't let anyone give you shit for your love of her.

Maybe this man brought Avril to the music scene. The music industry is done with her. It got what it needed.

Sounds like she wasn't one of the people personally touched by Jacob.

Wait, what?

Now - Alanis Morissette. There is a mystery of diminishing returns. 30+ million sales of Jagged Little Pill - then less than a third of that for her next 5 or so albums combined.

AND she doesn't sell out arenas in Hong Kong - despite the Nazis opening for her...

She's like the Alana of pop music. Or maybe the Naomi.


Cindy the stewardess?

Say what?

If I'm posting gifs to accompany my scolding, I'm not to be really taken seriously. Sorry if you took all of that the wrong way.

I just thought it was kind of a weird comparison to introduce here.

Honestly, I find it weird that he's brought it up several times recently.

Well something caused it because it did go downhill. Sometimes artists simply get cycled out. Fair or unfair

Debbie Gibson. Tiffany. Toni Braxton. Hillary Duff. Alanis. Jewel. They were all pretty big stars for a few years and then just dropped away. Avril extended it for almost a decade. I doubt she is personally too upset at low album sales. Bitch be rich.

I'm not sure if this the time or place to make mention of this, but I did want to clear something up -

I'm 100% definitely NOT a covert agent for a shadowy, secretive, unacknowledged arm of the government, ok? I mean, the very idea that such an organization would exist is absurd, let alone my potential participation. LOL, right? Crazy.

But, if I were such an agent, my code name would be SCUBA.

I'm not, though.

But still.

It's always the time and place to mention that.
