Specifically the new O2 Arena down the docklands (appropriate). She's currently supporting the Pussycat Dolls on their 'Ladies Who Flash Their Vadges for a Living' tour, which hit our shores yesterday. The resulting pictures got me thinking about my preferred barometer when making snap judgements regarding people I've never met; if you had the displeasure of being locked in a lift with either Katy Perry or GaGa, who would it be? I'd have to go with the Perry *ducks*... at least she doesn't take herself as serious as cancer. She has, after all, dressed as a banana and hurled herself into an oversized cake. On the other hand, Donnatella Does Aguilera With a Side of Grace Jones isn't on for tittering at herself, or the rampant idiocy that can be the pop world. Instead, she would prefer to preen herself continuously through interviews, where she says stuff like this about men:
"I don't want to waste my time on a man who doesn't like smart women. My dream man would have to be smarter than me - sadly, I think there's only one or two men out there who qualify. Sean Connery as James Bond, that's a real man... If a guy is intimidated by me, then he can f**k off." So she'd like a man who, when he's not negotiating his way around a fandangled gadget/pen, treats women like expendable frivolities. That's interesting considering she believes herself to be the upgraded embodiment of *shudders* "girl power".
Speaking of warped interpretations of female empowerment, this is what she had to say of her "outfits" (the main component of which appears to be accessorised tights): "A girl's got to use what she's given (her brain?! *jigs up and down expectantly*) and I'm not going to make a guy drool the way a Britney video does. So I take it to extremes. I don't say I dress sexily on stage - what I do is so extreme. It's meant to make guys think: 'I don't know if this is sexy or just weird'."
I'm guessing the two men out there who she considers to be smarter than herself are thinking: "It's neither. It's mundane. It's been done to death". Meanwhile, what are the prepubescent impressionables thinking? *hoists up leg*
