    Wouldn't have hurt to put on a bit of SLAP. She looked like she'd stayed awake ALL WEEK figuring out how to shoehorn AFRICA into her Scottish family tree.

    I love her and I think she has a unique voice but I obviously wasn't paying much attention to this navel-gazing tour de force so I am not sure if she implied right at the end that she has always cared about social causes because of the rough upbringing of her ancestors which she knew NOTHING ABOUT until this programme? :D She is ONE OF A KIND.

    Oh shit.

    I missed this!

    Can someone please tell me, from whose ancestry Annie splurged forth from?

    I hope there was pain, suffering and redemption (and HIV in Africa).

    Because that's what Our Anne is all about.

    Mungbeans for anyone?

    Just because her music isn't infectious anymore, HIV was the logical next step.

    Christmas Statement 2012: Annie Lennox

    'Listen... the silence...the emptiness... the desolation... the THROB of a female force responding. As a woman I have oft-betides felt adrift. But yestermorn I cried 'no more'.

    Listen to my throb. Understand your menopause. Why am I being overcome by the HIV positive Sahara desert?

    I hope you understand me.

    HIV positively yours

    Annie

    Annie Lennox responds:

    'Though you may laugh, a child also dies.

    As an effervescent force of female fertility, I always distrusted the motives of man.No more I love yous. HIV in Africa bothers me so much that I am wearing this awful t-shirt that my offspring were jailed for.

    I hope you understand me,

    HIV positively yours

    I still am a bit taken aback when I see that I started this thread. The self-righteous bitch hasn't done anything to my interest bar Diva.

    Oh I love it... and Commotion's hateration of her. I also can't forgive her for that "one of these people does not have HIV" shit. I mean is she totally clueless.

    Does anyone follow this pretentious old hag on Facebook? Commotion's posts really are close to the mark.

    does this hag even know how facebook works?

    I bet she uses a volmeter all the time to measure how much energy she's wasting while updating her facebook status

    Annie Lennox responds:

    I thank you for asking.

    The little brown jug represents femaleness, symbolising plenitude and nourishment, a vessel for my breastmilk which will nurture and sustain the starving mouths of Africa. When my children reached the age of 8 years old I decided that it was finally time to wean them from my teat onto solid food. Bereft, I felt - my inner core as a woman and mother violated by the passage of time and the passage of my children from babies to pre-teens in 1 fell swoop. Desolate in my heart I realised that the little brown jug could be a vessel in which to dissolve HIV meds with the nectar of hope - Le Jus d'Annie. Each morn as I massage my mounds of femininity to produce the milk of life to suckle the HIV warrior children I feel fulfilled as a source of hope, a farming visionary, at once both a glittering star and earth mother to Africa.

    The cheese grater is the flipside of the female reverie - jagged, serrated, dangerous, steely, cold and slicing., It represents the male. The plenitude of woman cut and sliced by the corrugated metal and discordant edge of man's lust to rape, suppress and annihilate the essence of woman. To shatter the nirvanic harmony of the communal female experience.

    To put it simply the little brown jug and the cheese grater have NOTHING to say or tell to each other.

    I am woman, hear my call.

    I hope this makes sense to you.

    As a part time observer of Moopy, I can honestly say Moopy is NEVER better than when La Lennox makes an appearance.

    Penelope; did you get to meet the grand dame? Did she have the moulding HIV+ T-shirt underneath the ceremonial gown? Did she attack you, as a male, for the patriarchal rape and violation of womankind?

    I was GUTTED to discover she was only doing Tuesday's graduation ceremonies :( Instead we just got the guy who came up with the John Lewis Christmas advert with the little boy.

    To be fair, Annie is talking about record companies rather than individuals and she has a spotless record when it comes to the whole selling sex/pop music conundrum. I will excuse this ridiculous woman pretty much anything.

    If you hadn't put Moopy in the 2nd sentence, I would totally have fell for that.
