Like whatever! She told them to fuck off and made a big deal of it. And it's the kind of lame male control thing for a singer - as she says,
my favorite quote from that meeting:
“i’m a guy, amanda. i understand what people like.”
to which i reply: where have you been for the last five years?
do you have any idea who i am, what band i’ve been in, what kind of music i write, who my fans are….who didn’t send you the memo that i’m not britney spears? i’m not TRYING to look hungry. i’m trying to look HOT. there’s a difference.
Anyway - this is the biggest amazing female singer thing since last year when I fell for Regina Spektor.
But right now, it's Amanda. Dayum. Someone in one of the comment threads came up with just the right term - fierce. Wow.
