Jessie J - Do It Like A Dude

Recommended Posts

I really liked that song, and that girl has a great crazy face.

 

Don't have the artistic lingo to describe my response to it like some people.

 

The black lipstick thing was cool.

I find her voice a bit annoying after the first minute. I like the beat but her voice is annoying with all the technology and autotune on it.

It's a white rihanna.

 

It's strange how feminism is still "we can do it like a man! Except we're female, which means we're sexier, and we can't help but flout this, so I think I'll wiggle a bit."

 

Thumbs down for the blandness of sound and emptiness of lyrics. Alright for the clubs.

Madonna said it years ago (presumably stolen from someone more intellectual than herself :p):

 

"Girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short, wear shirts and boots, because it's OK to be a boy. But for a boy to look like a girl, it's degrading -- because you think being a girl is degrading."

 

I think the conclusion is not necessarily true, but the quote serves so well to bear in mind. There's so much there to think about.

 

It's a primitive form of feminism -- but its a hurdle we still haven't properly got over in mainstream culture.

I mostly agree with Jayseven - sure it's cool that girls can act/dress etc as boys, but we get it already you can be what you want.

 

Shut up.

The style of video reminded me very much of Marilyn Manson, especially with all the close ups of licking her black lips.

It's a direct quote from Charlotte Gainsbourg's character in The Cement Garden.

I have no idea whether the quote is altered, left intact, or completely made up for the film, so no.

 

:santa:

I love how the idea of being equal is to do things like men, implying that the masculine way is the better/default option.

 

Quite why women want to do things like men is beyond me. Women/femininity are/is awesome. Sure, people can do what they want, but to me feminism is celebrating femininity, not becoming masculine.

She's being played quite a bit on Radio 1 atm as record of the week (etc etc)... I don't get it, I don't get what's so great about her sound and personally not a fan, from this song at least.

 

I'd sooner whip my hair.

I've done a slight U-turn on this song if I'm honest, I actually don't mind it at all now and often find myself singing the odd line occasionally, which I'd rather wasn't the case, but it's catchy!

 

However, quite why she ever thought the song would work acoustically I don't know...

 

 

I can see her next song being quite catchy after a while as well!

She makes such ugly/mad faces. It's possible to "do things like men" while still having grace, i.e. keep it classy. As for the music, it sounds like generic ~edgy~ pop music in the vein of Lady Gaga, with a dash of grime, nothing remarkable. But that's just my opinion.

Yeah when I first saw her video I wasn't a fan of the attitude/ugly faces at all, but that's all just for show and doesn't have any of this/is completely different when she's being interviewed.

 

Yeah the music as yet is nothing remarkable imo also, but she does have a great voice live as I heard on the radio the other day, if you hadn't known you'd have thought it was a recorded vocal... can't remember what song it was though, but I did prefer it.

I know, right? I've been trying to figure out when it became okay to like this kind of crap.
