I just read a post about the sexual and racial politics of the latest videos from Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj. The author saw waaaaay more in these presentations than I did, although I found both songs and videos entertaining.
- "Shake it Off" is pretty much what you would expect from Taylor Swift if you have ever encountered her stuff before EXCEPT it is clearly not a country song.
- "Anaconda" may set a record for most phallic symbols in a video.
- How do they do that with their butts?
- While both tunes are catchy, it is unfortunately the work of Ms. Minaj that has provided today's earworm.
I will be off in a bit to do whatever it takes to get the phrase "My anaconda don't" off of continual replay in my head. I think I pulled a muscle trying to emulate some twerk moves as well.
