but nicki minaj is sort of sexy and cool and this girl seems like council estate scum
i'll let it go
council estates breed some scummy people, not exclusively, but they do. you can be all middle class about it but it doesn't change the facts. i grew up on council estates and she's exactly the kind of tacky vulgar person you'd see drinking strongbow on top a phone box.
go cry into your hummus
if she wasn't releasing shit music she'd probably have three different kids by three different dads. the kids would be called something stupid as well like porcha, miquita and mercede.
My job involves helping disadvantaged people into work and I'm about to start teaching literacy skills to people with no qualifications. Yes, you get obnoxious people on the council estates but to tar everyone on the places with the same brush just keeps the worst off worse off and helps the inequality gap in this country keep going.
There's a media/middle-class trait in recent years of kicking the shit out of the working class and making it clear poor people deserve it and, rightly or wrongly, I read your comment has helping to re-enforce that trend. Which is pretty twattish.
and i was still right to use the term "council estate scum" because council estate scum really is its own breed of scum. for balance, another breed would be slimey canary wharf scum.
It was just the first one read like it was lumping all council estate people together which is what got my goat.
and i think that 'council estate scum' is a fair enough thing to throw at her, tbh.
yeah i'm not arguing with you
but perhaps chery lloyd and her dreadful tunes are also helping to perpetuate the myth of we working-class folk as oikish twats with little in the way of talent to offer society.
Grouchland and guywithnousername being really po-faced and tedious. Who'd have thought it? Also, this song is an absolute abortion.
was below the 'relative poverty' line. Cheers
Anyone, storm in a teacup. If people don't want to be called twattish, they just need to not act like twats. If they act like twats they just need to accept being called twattish and move on. Doesn't really need a conversation.
cheers, that made my day.
I'm WELL sweet on Minaj.
Middle class kids hatin' on the scum.
Complete nonsense. More of this please.
this going to number one is really going to disrupt the quality of music in the top 40 over the last 3 or 4 years.
just... i'm astonished
Blimey, I better give it a listen.
i can't believe anyone thought it might not.
it mentions 'the floor' loads for a start. people love songs about 'the floor'. getting on it. dancing on it. anything on it really. they bloody love that floor.
and we don't deserve any better, quite frankly.
Guaranteed number one.
Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5/Christina Aguilera is on repeat on R2 at work and haunts my very soul. Can't decide which one's worse.
Only one thing for it... http://youtubedoubler.com/1n3Y
it enables them to sell 2 ringtones per song. 2 ! see also "The Time- (dirty bit) "
Also since it's copyright has lapsed you can just steal it and use it to attract that elusive mp3 buying over 115 years old demographic.
Music like this makes me beg for deafness.
Apparently the song is about dem haterz who steal your style. Listening to the Radio1 chart show in the car on Sunday, some guy was criticising her song because she's basically made up a new bit of slang to rhyme with swagger.
Or has she?..... Swagger JAGger perhaps?
Memorably so, and is therefore a perfect piece of pop. Anything other than number 1 would have been a travesty. If they'd carried on the boom-bap from the verse into the chorus so it sounded like 1 song then it would have been damn-near perfect.
"13. swagger jagger 85 up, 113 down
a person who always cramp your style. a form of hating'
You just mad cuz u ain't got no man so stop being a swagger jagger
buy swagger jagger mugs & shirts
hater cockblocker envious person lame jack
by tee and Bri Jan 11, 2008 share this add a video "
sadly enough i checked to see if this 'swagger jagger' (rather than swagger jacker) was on urban dictionary when the song came out. It had like 8 votes at that point. since then it has inevitably been voted up.
promoting the idea that being obnoxious & arrogant is something to aspire to. Horrible.
That said, I really don't get why so many DiSers are slagging this whilst praising Nicola Roberts' equally grating Dance to the Beat of my Drum. I can't hear any noticeable difference in quality. Both horrible records.
and not a little shit.
i don't know what to tell you, you might be eligible for ear implant surgery.
i actually prefer this just because i find nicola roberts so horribly bland but her (diplo's) track itself is obviously, obviously better.
This song's better than loads of other songs, people are silly.
that's a thing that happens, right?
and couldn't help but grin and chuckle.
Every second of the song/video looks like it's designed to irritate people. I kinda like it.
it's not aimed at the DiS demographic, and if I was an 8-yr old girl I'd probably love it. And it's not as if it's the first time a shit record performed by some clueless muppet has ever got to no1.
I'M 15 AND I DON'T LISTEN TO ANY OF THE CRAP ON THE RADIO, THUMBS UP IF YOU LOVE THE CLASSICS HENDRIX BEATLES ETC
you know what my favourite song in the world was when i was 13? i'm blue da ba de. you know what i'm listening to and enjoying right now? cap'n jazz.
calm the fuck down, i'm sure your kids will have plenty of time to be as dead and empty inside as you are, but let them have a few years of fun.
It'll just push his daughter the other way - she'll get to thirteen or fourteen, rebel against his taste in music and listen to the dumbest pop imaginable. He's creating a monster.
Agree with this sentiment, but this doesn't change the fact that this song is beyond fucking god awfully shite
What I meant to say is that maybe you loving that Blue song is related to the fact you've grown up to be a first class tosspot.
My daughter's 4 and as much as I try to play her Smiths/New Order & the like, she has somehow contracted Bieber fever...
She loves Age of Consent and This Charming Man. But you know 4-yr olds, it's all about image, and she would rather look at Bieber than Peter Hook. They're so shallow at that age.
don't call me a prick
I do think parents have some responsibility to show their kids the good stuff in life whether it's food music or whatever.
pretty much agree!
...and will try my damned best not to. With the amount of talk about it though it was always going to do well even though everyone said it was shit so no suprise there. clever work from her twatty label.
Who's buying it? She wasn't popular on the X Factor (the judges kept her in) and she's hardly the credible street artist she thinks she is. It's a horrific song and I'm surprised kids are even buying it.
@antonio12aniello She's a stra and yes you are a? hater get over it

me about this song is that the Black Eyed Peas didn't make it first.
has been in my head for a few days now too.
Ladie and Gentlmen Music has died today.
I love gangsters. Classic Blasmic.
I don't care what anyone says, it is significantly worse than any other song in the top 5 that I've ever heard.
Apart from Tik Tok.
Mastercheck Synesthesia got to number 37!
Ah well, not like i bought it.
Otherwise it's just... words.
I like to think I'm down with the kids, but I was always under the impression that you jack someone's swag, rather than jagging someone's swag.
i'm thinking a female journalist in her mid-to-late 30's talking about how cher lloyd has been through a lot and it's a great song because she doing what she wants and it's got a delightful exuberance and the kids get it.
has that blog post happened yet? i'm on the edge of my seat.
They'd love it.
