    "Million Dollar Man", on the other hand, is gorgeous. So classy, and it is one of her best early live performances (there aren't many).

    Is This Is What Makes Us Girls supposed to be ironic or sexist or both? It was one of my favorites at the time but the lyrics are a bit off. Still a 10 though :disco:

    Everything that LDR does is both ironic and sexist.

    One of the big recurring criticisms of her first album was that she was seen as being a bit unfeminist generally.

    I think Lorde slagged her off on Tumblr :D

    I love how the majority of the album somehow made it as a single in the most random places on the Earth. Her discogs entry is truly ridiculous.

    For some reason 'Without You' never left a big impression with me but it's really clicking tonight. Top notch stuff! Yes the lyrics are somewhat problematic if taken at face value.

    "Summertime Sadness" (remix) does STUFF to me that i can't go out and say the album version is superior (although it is) - but that middle eight in the album version is BEYOND

    I think I'll miss you forever
    Like the stars miss the sun and the morning sky

    Late is better than never
    Even if you're gone I'm gonna drive...
    DRIIIIIIIIIVEEEEE

    I feel like she had BEEF with Selena Gomez somehow too.

    She lightened up when she discovered ROBYN and SADBANGERS.

    It was HIGHWAY ROBBERY

    And to think Radiohead had the GALL to sue Lana over Get Free when Lana is the true victim in all this!

    "This is What Makes Us Girls" is the weakest moment on the album, IMO

    'Lolita' has never been a fave and it is problematic. Like, properly problematic.
