Gwen Stefani "Hollaback Girl"

This has been around for a bit and lord knows it's all over TV. Still, if a boring Jessica Simpson video can inspire 58 posts, surely this can inspire a little. Topics may include:
a 35-year-old woman who pretends she's still in high school her gang of subservient Asian women
predictable use of a marching band she says "shit" over and over again

... still, it is an effective clip.

wow! gwen is totally down with black people AND asian b-grls. she is like totally cool like that you know?

i think it's amazing how cash dollas buys legitimacy in music. got a few million for a fat neptunes beat? okay! now you're totally hip hop! we'll even throw in a pharrell cameo fo free.

Oh crap, this is where all the Grad students deconstruct this thing like its James Joyce. Fresh video.

dickensian_hero, July 12, 2005 6:12:37 PM CEST

who's deconstructing the video? i was talking about the economic and social forces informing it.

vijay, July 12, 2005 8:07:53 PM CEST

I'll deconstruct it! This crap is gonna look so cheesy five years from now, but do "hard earned dollars" deserve more? Wardrobe change, Pose!

The video for Holla Back Girl is a poetic meditation on our collective lost innocence, which artfully uses a ghostly high school setting to explore the bankrupted soul of Gwen, a disillusioned 35 year old slave owner. Like the tragic march of Death in Bergman's 7th Seal or the ghostly parade in Fellini's 8 1/2, Gwen leads a troupe of high schoolers to what we can only assume is their ultimate death and eternal damnation.

Also, It's funny how she sticks her butt out when she says "It's my shit." As if the song and the video are literally being pooped out onto my screen and into my ears.

Remember a few years ago when she was rocking the Bindi?

this is the best video to come out of the LAMB album, there is no point in posting anything here that isnt on that earnest, white people, indie rock, look at me Im so different tip. (Im really sick of that tip, its played out). And regarding dickensian-hero's comment re the neptunes, anyone making a pop album who can afford certainly should use them, they are the best producers available, they make the hottest shit, period.

dickensian_hero, July 12, 2005 10:28:00 PM CEST

i dunno shut up, that lachapelle video on the pirate ship set is pretty phat n fresh.

hijed, July 12, 2005 10:33:00 PM CEST

Yeah, and I'm Korean so whatever.

dickensian_hero, July 12, 2005 10:36:14 PM CEST

wait, shut up, did you mean to write that anyone making a "poop" album should use the neptunes? because sometimes i forget the extra "o" too.

Shes Hot Anything this girl does Stings!
U wanna see and discuss Leonardo type genius, I suggest u buy a ticket n head for the Louvre

Sum of the comments 'ere sound like they've escaped from Mark's Jentina page on
What that poor girl did to be attacked like that I don't know
Oh yes I do, now I come to think of it
She made a couple of records
Wotta crime worse than Bush, Blair and Saddam all rolled into one
