Pop Star Fail

Today's Failbook Fail: Rough Night.

Some guy mentions Ke$ha, and then a bunch of men make asshole comments about how 1) she is overrated (okay, I guess that's fair, if you don't dig her style), 2) she is a drunken slut (oh, now, wait just a sec . . .), 3) she is a totally dirty slut (come on, fellas), and 4) she is a fat drug-addicted slut (okay, shut it down, jackasses!)

For some reason we subject female pop stars to the most intense scrutiny and ridicule regarding their sexual lives. Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, Lady Gaga, Madonna -- I'm mixing my eras here, I know, but as soon as a woman has enormous success in the music business, all of a sudden we have a burning desire to critique anything to do with her vagina. It fucking baffles me.

  1. Or, in the case of Lady Gaga, people insist that she's a man. Ke$ha, too. But they really go overboard with Lady Gaga. She writes her own music, dominates the red carpet (and the charts) and demands respect. Obviously she's a man. I don't get it. Also, I've been reading this blog for the past half hour or so. Thank you.
