The A to Z of Pop - M is for...Meh.

Well, that one was a bit too easy, wasn't it? Meh.

The A to Z of Pop
by Jo Michelmore

Let me tell you something, whether you're interested or not. I've had a shit week. Like, uber shit. I mean, I've had worse, but some weeks, you know, you just want to grab that week (and all those involved) and give them a giant punch in the face. Then, after the anger goes, I get to the next stage of emotion, which I can only describe one way....meh. It's gotten so bad, I don't even care anymore. It's not even like 'throw my hands in the air like I just don't care' because I don't even care that much. Throw what you want at me world, I've nothing but utter indifference, I'm so over it all I've only got one thing to say....MEH.

Like the career of Mandy Moore. She had that one average song a decade ago and then what? Um, does she have something to do with fashion? I am NOT missing you like candy, Mandy. MEH.

About the same time there was Macy Gray and for maybe fifteen minutes I really liked her. But then what? Nothing. Nothing worth remembering. I try? You might have tried Macy, but you should have tried harder. MEH.

And while I'm at it, in more recent times, I'm over Miley Cyrus. She nudes it up, she twerks, she smokes some weed, she swears a lot, she dances really badly and she's tried to sing a Nirvana song. I could have been offended, but who hasn't done all those things at 21? MEH.

Mackelmore and his friend (does anyone remember what his friend's name was anymore?) are just like old Mandy and Macy, they were famous for a good five minutes there. Thankfully, those minutes are over. The fact they existed in the first place? MEH.

Let me end on the oldest meh I've got. Madonna's that old and had that many moments I'm not sure there's anything she could do to make me bother with her anymore. Except maybe release a good pop song. Until then? MEH.
