Garbage singer Shirley Manson has again gotten on her soap box on a female musical peer. Shirley blasts, “Avril Lavigne is a nice change from Britney as a pop star but please… I’ve had enough of the media ramming here down my throat as a bone fide agitator!!!! Em… no I don’t think I’m buying that one! And here’s a little tip for the stylists behind the ‘diva’. For God’s sake, take off the tie. Enough already! For those of you, like me, who never bought into the so called, patriarchally orchestrated ‘girl power’ of the Spice Girls… Or the join the dots, coloring book ‘rock rebellion’ of Avril lavigne; Get your eyes fixed on Karen O from the ‘Yeah Yeah Yeahs’, because let there be no mistake, no misunderstanding, she really is the annointed one!”
