I read the grantland article on this and was pretty intrigued. Also have suddenly been interested in reading critical interpretations of "Prism," Miley Cyrus, and was also really stimulated by the Steven Hyden review of the new Head and the Heart album where he delved into his problems w/ the modern folk wave (and seemed pleased at The Head and The Heart's non-participation in said problems) Apparently I'm interested in popular culture or something?

Have you heard "I Kissed a Girl"? It completely disregards bisexuality as a legitimate sexuality.
I'm bothered by what you said for some reason...
First, the way you phrased that criticism makes it sound like unless a POP HIT song is going to mention each and every recognized legitimate sexuality, it better not mention one at all. Second, I think it's a mistake to assume Perry is sharing a true tale of sexual experimentation in I Kissed A Girl. Her music is formulated for the purpose of making huge amounts of money and getting buttloads of radio play, not to be her personal memoirs of her misspent youth(in that she did not have one). Am i the only one who thinks coming down on a pop superstar for not being politically correct to the absolute max is a waste of time? I think that IF ANYTHING we ought to be absolutely overjoyed that a team like Tegan and Sara, who do write honest and true songs that ARE intended to tell the tale of their lives, to which all legitimate sexualities are talked about and encouraged, have become an entity capable of receiving this type of exposure. Congrats to them, no shame on Katy.

she also has a song called "Ur So Gay" which is incredibly homophobic

That was really cool. That song was made with a lot of doubled tracks and hearing different octaves sing the hook live maxes that climax out.

No, I don't expect her to address every possible sexuality. She very clearly makes bisexuality seem more as a fun thing and not something where you could actually love another person of the same sex. "Doesn't mean I'm in love tonight."

"No, I don't even know your name, it doesn't matter.
You're my experimental game, just human nature.
It's not what good girls do, not how they should behave."

Sorry, but the lyrics do say it all. I'm not hating a pop superstar "just because." I'm hating on her, because the songs she sings are fucking dumb and homophobic.
