What the fuck is a hollaback girl?
Can anyone help me with this?
When my daughter was small, I loved No Doubt. She knew all the lyrics to “I’m just a girl,” only she pronounced it “gwirl.”
I also had her doing backup on “Hit the road Jack.”
The best thing about that is that she remembers.
I kind of lost track of Gwen over the years, so in my ongoing effort to dislodge myself from the 80′s, I took a look around Youtube. I had heard a few of her newer things here and there. I wanted to find the one that talked about banana’s being the shit, because I didn’t agree. Everyone knows that I like strawberries.
They are much more shit like, in my opinion.
Just as I suspected, cute little Gwen turned into a skank.
What is up with the midriff bearing? In my day, girls did not show off that much drift. I know that my daughters school doesn’t allow outfits like that, yet these little tramps are air humping, belly dancing little strumpets.
Ah ha! I love when I answer my own questions!
It doesn’t happen often.
The more of this I see, the more I can understand the pressure my daughter and her friends feel to be “skinny.” I took her clothes shopping at the thrift store, so she could get some shorts for the summer. She couldn’t find anything that fit her that she wouldn’t be made fun in by her friends. She told me she looked like a potato.
My daughter is no potato, and I told her so. I am not sure she believes me, after all I am her mom. But I tell her all the time that she is perfect the way she is. I am overjoyed that the “no ass” gene skipped her. She has a nice body, and someday I hope she can embrace it.
I think my daughter needs to start listening to Adele.
