Run For Cover: Temi DollFace – Teenage Dirtbag

June 7, 2011

Sorry for lull in posts lately, I am currently finishing off an essay for my course at university and reading about Luce Irigaray’s feminist theory, phallogocentrism and confronting patriarchal society. Oh the joys.

On that note, here is a female performer challenging the dominance of male expression ín music by reinterpreting it with a woman’s voice and therefore removing the phallogocentrism (and perhaps even the phallus itself) from the original meaning.  In other words, Nigerian singer Temi DollFace has covered Wheatus’ ‘Teenage Dirtbag’, essentially cutting the pubescent balls off the track and making it a lot better.

Right, let me get back to work.
