Gwen Stefani is Bananas

This Shit Is Bananas - A probing analysis of Gwen Stefani’s ‘Hollaback Girl’
Gonna get a touchdown, gonna take you out
Gwen is going to beat up the person who wronged her, after she completes the cheerleading routine that will inspire the football team to score a touchdown. Gwen has interesting priorities.

a) that song makes me cringe. Sorry, Loftus.
b)
All the girls stomp your feet like this
This talk of shit and stomping has nothing to do with actually stepping on feces. But what does it mean?
hee.
c) why in the heck are you looking at a website called ocweekly.com, Jake?

I don't care if she's overexposed. What's wrong with ridiculosity in pop music - what kind of name is "Sloopy" for a girl, anyway? Yet everyone agrees that's a pop song for the ages. No one here is saying LAMB is a classic. (Yet.) But don't fault the lady for having some gibberish fun.

I stand by my girl:

Gwen has been the victim of some slanderous high school gossip, and she doesn’t appreciate it. Gwen is 35 years old sliding into MILF status at this point, but we’ll grant her some poetic license
Hah!
But really, I think Kelis' "Milkshake" has been edged out as worst song ever. We now have a tie thanks to Ms. Stefani.

I think OC Weekly is actually the slightly southern cousin of LA Weekly, a venerable alt-weekly. The OC version is pretty good by my judgement, but my judgement uses the absolutely abysmal SD Reader as a reference point.

One of the best paragraphs in the history of GLONO:
No Doubt are important in the grand marginal scheme of traffic-jam guilty pleasure radio lullaby rock. Sure, Nelly Furtado's "I'm Like a Bird" was pleasant enough the first 450 times. But jeez, release another single, would you? And now that Jewel's dishwater new material has her thinking of spending a promotional year in the trunk of an Anchorage, AK Grand Turino, Stupid Radio needs something that the average dope can hum along listlessly to while waiting in line at McDonald's. And if that brain-evacuating slush happens to feature Sly & Robbie cutting up some primo instrumental juju, or Ric Ocasek moving in stereo, then super size it Pilar, because radio just got better for the next two and a half minutes.
Ha, remember when Jewel was famous?

I hate you Gwen Stefani. This song was stuck in my head, and I had to listen to the new Spoon Cd for hours to put that traumatic experience behind me.

Was Jewel really ever famous Jake? (I mean outside of her yuppie soccer mom fans)
