Why I Love Anastacia
Ever since I wrote for Let's Go in Italy, I've had this semi-private soft spot in my heart for Anastacia, because her voice is terrifyingly good and her lyrics are fabulously terrible, to the point that they sort of circumnavigate terrible and become really catchy. (Sample: "He calls you pretty little dum-dum, he says he loves you but he lies. He says that you're the one one, but that's eleventh in his eyes.") And then today I was idly checking the Guardian and saw this interview with her, where she talks about the fact that she's lied about her age for ten years and is actually 40, she says Botox is great, and she uses phrases like "she was horrible.com." She just got like twice as awesome.
