A couple of music videos

I know this video is about a month and a half old, but I've just now come across the video to "Stupid Girls" by P!nk and it's, conservatively speaking, a hoot. Here she skewers bimbos who are rewarded for being idiots, just like Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton are. Pop-culture feminism lives! Now what this culture needs next IMHO is a male version of that song/video, where the male singer (I don't care if that guy is gay or straight) attacks the hyper-macho attitudes of the likes of Eminem, 50 Cent and Limp Bizkit, and the way they are made to some sort of twisted ideal that young boys are supposed to grow up to be. "Where, oh where, have the smart people gone? Oh where, oh where could they be?" indeed.

Also here's Public Image Ltd. performing on the May 17, 1980 edition of American Bandstand. This is likely the most bizarre moment of the show's history. And the way those kids ends up plasticly grooving to John Lydon and Company as if they were some disco band is kind of creepy.
