My latest issue with Ms. Whip Cream Tits is her song "Last Friday Night (TGIF)" which glorifies intoxication and risky sexual behavior. Now, I am against neither, but the song goes to my belief that she is both a hypocrite and an insensitive person.
The problem is that she is married to a drug and sex addict, Russell Brand. Now, while Brand is apparently in recovery, or however that is expressed (clean and sober?), it seems rather tasteless to put out such a song which flies in the face of your spouse's recovery. This song is not Elvis Costello's "Clubland" or even Lady Gaga's "Just Dance" — both of which have a mocking element to hooligan/drunk culture (Costello's song more so).
Frankly, if anyone else had done this song I would like it. I thought originally it was someone ripping of Ke$ha's persona and Perry's musical style. I like that Rebecca Black is in the video, as it is similar to her song in many ways. The take on Eighties nerd-gone-cool movies is appealing, even if the nerd look is a bit heavy handed.
Maybe it is just me? Maybe I should just shut up and listen, and care less what is going on with an artist? That used to be easy. Do I care if Elvis Presley or Britney Spears mean every word they say? Not really, but they were less likely to be vocal about their opinions. I don't care what opinion you express, just be consistent. Also, this song was obviously going to be a hit. Recording a song that should be highly offensive to your spouse just to sell records is just the kind of behavior I dislike in an artist. If the song had a satirical edge to it I would not have an issue.
I'll shut up now. Carry on with what you were doing. Feel free to yell at me in the comments.
PS: The video does actually rock.
