I don't like Tori, but some of those quotes were really good.

OK Speaking of which, yesterday I received in the mail the new issue of Rollingstone. The concept of this issue was "Women in Rock". Unfortunately, this was only a concept in theory, because only 1 of the 6 women featured on the cover actually rock. The 1 woman is Alanis Morrisette, the 5 unworthies are Shakira, Britney Spears, Mary J Blige, Avril Lavigne, & Ashanti (Ashanti is also responsible for the boringest music I've ever heard).
Now the reason this pisses me off so much is because, imagine if Rollingstone did a Men in Rock issue. You'd see Aaron Lewis, Bruce Springsteen, Chris Carraba, Eddie Vedder, etc on the cover. You would NOT see Justin Timberlake or Jay-Z on the cover. And why the hell wouldn't you? because they don't rock.
Now that we figured that out. Why are those 5 girlies on the cover? They will never be played on modern rock radio. I'm insulted as hell that "girl rock" is considered as being sultry r&b singers, booty shakers, & adult cheerleaders.
Girls That Rock: Brody Armstrong, Tori Amos, Chrissie Hynde, Pat Benatar, Courtney Love, Gwen Stefani, Exene Cervenka, Joan Jett, Janis Joplin, Melissa Etheridge, Kathleen Hanna, Sheryl Crow, etc and so forth. ahh.. fuck you Rollingstone.
