The K-Tizzle Sizzle - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
by Katie Langley

Inspiration can come from the strangest places. Who knew that HTML, a faulty printer and Miley Cyrus would be the inspiration for this post? It all began last week when fellow blogger Jo gave me a lesson in HTML. We found ourselves yelling “slut” at the monitor when the formatting went whack. I’m not willing to accept that it was user error. HTML is a slut. And so is the faulty printer at work.

That brings me to Miley Cyrus and her performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. My favourite part is when the camera pans to the audience and Drake is staring at the floor. That’s exactly how I felt. Cringe! Oh my heart, my achy breaky heart. The twerking, the tongue hanging out… It was so cheap and tacky. I wouldn’t be so bold as to call Miley Cyrus the ‘s’ word, but I’m really not a fan of the image she’s creating for herself.

On the other hand, there are plenty of women out there making a fortune from their less than saintly images…

Lil Kim

Lil Kim has been causing controversy since the mid-90s. This is the woman who released a song titled 'How Many Licks' in which she boasts about her various (read: many) conquests. That’s the politically correct explanation. I’ll let you Google the lyrics at your leisure.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga isn’t afraid to show a little skin. She claims it’s in the name of art, but what’s her excuse when she pops down to the shops without a pair of trousers? Maybe her meat dress turned rotten.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry is hot and she’s cold, she’s yes and she’s no… She also likes to get the ‘girls’ out regularly. But if your body was a wonderland I bet you would too.


Rihanna overhauled her image after years of Beyoncé comparisons. Much like Lady Gaga, Rihanna is frequently snapped sans pants. It's not like she doesn't have the money to spend on electrolysis.


Madonna has been getting her skank on before most of the current poplets were even born. These days the only thing she tries to cover is her hands - she’s still not opposed to showing a bit of T and A.
