I am a big Courtney Love fan. However, Her latest song "Skinny Little Bitch" pisses me off. Not the music- it is a good, dark rocking song but the lyrics seem hypocritical because Courtney herself IS SO SKINNY. It is because I am a fan I feel It is okay to sometimes express negative opinions. I read this review, here is just a part: "considering the song's lyrics, which I understand as a tirade against a younger, skinnier woman who's, you know, fucking with her or something, but which also, to be fair, may be a letter from Old Courtney to Young Courtney. Regardless, it doesn't ring true. I imagine some will see this as a sort of bullshit feminist anthem, about being proud of your size" by music critic Mike Conklin It is easy to write a song like this when you are as skinny and underweight as C. Love is. Try writing it if you are actually fat or overweight. I don't think she could have written this song about truly being pissed at or jealous of a skinny rival if she were heavy and okay with it. I don't think she could feel comfortable singing about someone else being skinny if she weren't ultra thin herself. We fans know she has always battled weight, wanted to be skinny etc. It was one o the first goals she wrote in her journals you can see in Dirty Blonde. " MUST lose x amount of wight etc." If I was as skinny as she is I'd have focused on age. I think that may be where her true insecurity is at. I think the song would be truer to Courtney's real self. She herself is a skinny little bitch! :) :)

Those of you fond of 50s polka dot dresses combined with ironic bleached blonde hair and smudged red lipstick will know what a momentous occasion this was. Hole, the epitome of 90s riot grrl feminism, inspire such a wave of nostalgia in me that just writing this makes me feel like I'm sat at the back of an RE class discreetly listening to Violet on my walkman wishing I was anywhere but here... read more.
