Slow news weekend so far,although Gwen and her sons were seen departing LAX yesterday for NYC,so there should be LOTS of Fashion Week news soon.In the meantime,check out this article from The Vancouver Sun that includes ”Just A Girl” in its list of self-esteem boosting pop songs.
Lady Gaga’s Born This Way debuted Friday morning. And, thanks to the pop star’s generous lyrical sneak-peek, we already know the most important thing about the new track: it’s one all-inclusive selfempowerment anthem that joins a long line of self-esteemboosting pop songs.
Here are some more:
FIREWORK, KATY PERRY (2010)
The song itself is the sort of finely crafted schmaltz engineered to play at high-school graduations for years to come
THE CLIMB, MILEY CYRUS (2009)
Deep down inside all of us, there’s a teeny, tiny Disney starlet. And that wee voice inside all of us is there to remind us we have enough inner strength to make it. No matter what life throws at us -photo scandals, bong scandals.
THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL, WHITNEY HOUSTON (1986)
The titular Greatest Love of All is -wait for it -“learning to love yourself.” That motto has probably produced just as many self-absorbed jerks as its helped pop fans with a bad case of the Mondays.
JUST A GIRL, NO DOUBT (1995)
Ask any teenage girl: Sarcasm feels good. Empowering, even. Add Gwen Stefani’s vocals and some No Doubt pop-punk and it gets even better, as exemplified on this Tragic Kingdom anthem for the ladies.
