Alanis Demolishes "My Humps"


Good job, Alanis. A damned fine parody, even if it is a little long. Granted,
"My Humps" is just a silly, disposable pop song. Unfortunately, the "shake-what-yo-momma-gave-ya take-the-playa's-cash use-your-GIRL-POWER" trope you see in music videos has become as annoying and clich├ęd as gangsta rap, and it needs to be lampooned.

Yes, some women have wider bottoms than the rest of us, and some of us men just love that look. Some of us love it a WHOLE lot. Booties are good. We get it. We got it twenty years ago. It's got. It's done. Move on.

I'll be fair to Fergie, and link to the original: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vj9swNR5-lY

Labels: , , , , ,

I can't tell if it's a condemnation of the pop-rap song, or a condemnation of Fergie being a 'traitor' somehow. If Alanis is involved, I generally smell a decidedly feminist slant, as a rule. Almost as if her music is so far directed at angry "womyn", that it's anti dude.
