Well, this is just awful news. It seems Atlanta bubblegum (w)rapper Soulja Boy and Canadian whozit Justin "The Biebs" Bieber have teamed up to produce a slice of truly terrible tween-baiting mall pop. The offending anthem is entitled "Rich Girl" (it's not a Hall & Oates cover, though I wish it were), and listening to it will hurt your brain. Seriously, this song has zero personality. This is one lazy-ass slice of Pro Tooled nonsense from a couple of the pro-est tools around.
Soulja Boy has never been the most compelling rapper, but, Christ, Ben Stein would have brought more energy to "Rich Girl." Soulja is just pathetic, sleepwalking his way through vague references to young, moneyed women and the cars they drive. He even drops this stinkbomb: "And I know you rich/ And you know I'm rich/ So together we filthy." That sound you just heard was me shuddering uncontrollably.
And now it's stuck in your head. Happy Friday!
This is such a cool idea and the performance is great (I've been twice) but…
Ugliest bunch of girls I've ever seen.
Shuddup ya dumb beatnik
Neko Case has so much to applaud. Hardest-working girl who we're glad to have on…
Hands down, the worst bathroom in Atlanta, but damn, there was some good times there.
