Have you seen the Robin Thicke video for Blurred Lines? All those girls being so submissive and all over him?? Yuch!!!!! Girl Power, NOT.

Good for you Miley Cyrus - you took control and whooped his ass. You were no 'good girl' - that's for sure. And after watching that original Robin Thicke video again - THAT's A GOOD THING!!!

AIBU??

Yes, YABU.

Is this the performance at the VMA's?

YouTheCat Mon 02-Sep-13 00:08:33

It's all a load of pre-arranged, badly managed shite.

Good for none of them. They need to all bugger off and learn to play, write songs and sing without being auto-tuned to hell.

I know so many very talented young people doing small gigs, writing their own material and they are 100 times better than this crap.

That was the absolute complete opposite of girl power. YABVU

she did kinda humiliate him so in a way....

NotYoMomma Mon 02-Sep-13 00:11:01

he makes me feel sick

she makes me feel sick. put your tongue away!

No she didn't humiliate him. She humiliated herself for dancing for her corporate masters, the ones actually in control of both of their careers.

how? I think she made a knob of herself.

It's a foul song and her performance was horrible.

The only thing about it that made me smile was a mumsnetter saying he looked like a humbug

LittleBearPad Mon 02-Sep-13 00:16:07

Also girl power??

The spice girls were a long time ago

LeoandBoosmum Mon 02-Sep-13 00:17:23

One girl behaving in a slutty way as opposed to several... What did I miss exactly?
Miley was objectionable as is Thicke, the song and the girls in his video!

Emmeline Pankhurst would have been very proud.

It's this sort of thing suffragettes went under racehorses for. Probably.

TylerHopkins - yes, performance at VMAs.

I did think 'Oh God' when I watched it first.
But I'm just after watching the original Robin Thicke video on MTV.

And I thought - I prefer Miley giving him the finger than all those simpering women...

BTW - I'm not saying Miley's performance IS Girl Power - but that the simpering women in the video is so NOT Girl Power. And for that, I appreciate Miley giving the finger. (Even it not in the usual sense of the word!)

YouTheCat Mon 02-Sep-13 00:20:45

But she isn't giving anyone the finger.

The only people getting the finger are the idiots that buy this shite.

MCos Mon 02-Sep-13 00:23:18

LittleBearPad - I'm old... But sentiment is still valid. What is a more up to date term?

noobieteacher Mon 02-Sep-13 00:23:58

This sounds like wishful thinking.

There are a million and one better ways to make a feminist statement.

MCos Mon 02-Sep-13 00:24:35

YouTheCat - she most definitely gave Robin Thicke the finger! A very large foam finger...

YouTheCat Mon 02-Sep-13 00:25:37

Yes but it was all orchestrated by their record label.

They're the one giving the finger.

noobieteacher Mon 02-Sep-13 00:25:39

Hmm I would have to watch the video again to check. But I can't bear to.

LittleBearPad Mon 02-Sep-13 00:26:04

I'm not sure there is one - how about feminism? At least that stands for something. Girl power was marketing crap.

MCos Mon 02-Sep-13 00:28:21

noobieteacher - I don't think it was a feminist statement. And not a real FU either.

But I appreciated how he was not so comfortable with an in-your-face female.

Montybojangles Mon 02-Sep-13 00:29:28

I prefer the finger this lot give him in the you tube clicky link in this AIBU conversation.

Miley is a sad, public train wreck happening in slo mo sad

YouTheCat Mon 02-Sep-13 00:29:33

You do know this isn't real?

It's like wrestling. hmm

Someone once told me that the Baader Meinhoff had some theory about "KonsumerTerror", where consumers would rise up, as consumers, and violently react against the crap they were being sold. As consumers, the way proles would rise up as proles, etc.

I find that this Thicke stuff, the next installment of the PR "story" (the Cyrus) stuff, really gives me the rage, as a consumer.

And, reading mumsnet, I realise I am not alone.

Obviously, some people think: "Oooh ... cool." but a lot of us are just really fucking enraged by the cynical shit that is being pumped in our direction.
