She's about keeping her clothes on, not conforming to what people want her to be, representing the working class (represented by the black and white uniforms she wears)... that's more than I can say for the majority of mainstream Black female entertainers

If there are plenty of Black women that do that then shouldn't that be celebrated? Stern Smile

What is it she's about that = massive hate?

Being an artist? There are plenty of black women who do that.


Being "alternative" in style & music vs traditional r&b? Meshell Ndegeocello, Tracy Chapman, Kelis, Fefe Dobson and every other black female non-r&b/pop artist did that first too.

Being able to rap 16-32 bars & sing? Monica did that too.

I don't think people here are hating on her, rather the song being lackluster. Her message isn't hard to follow, it's just not unique.

ETA: And since her message isn't new, (nor is her androgynous style) but she tries to package them as if they are, she comes off as "meh" in my opinion.



It's great that she wants to be different & non-conformist, truly I mean that. But she's on a major label (2 of them: Bad Boy & Atlantic) and wants to try to prove that she won't submit to the record execs? And she's paid the price in terms of her singing career - never really getting the mainstream attention she feels she deserves (which is also referenced in this song). The only time she got the serious mainstream commercial attention (not including nominations from award academies) was when she was featured on fun.'s track "We Are Young".

What she wants professionally and who she projects herself to be as an artist are two concepts that are polar opposites. Hence my "meh" response.

I consider her pop as well, however she categorizes herself as rock. :-/

One could say healing is difficult from a tiger push.

Bye girl... Certain things in the industry is bringing in the fans/money. If she doesn't want to do what sells, then why complain about not selling. Her and Dawn gets on my nerves. They have 100 and 1 reasons why their music doesn't pop to the masses.
