Umm, can I just say this? OH MY GOD!


When I saw that Confusion posted this last night, I thought I would die. No one should mess with "Are You That Somebody?" — especially not some shameless feminist punk rocking lesbian. But then I said that out loud (the "shameless feminist punk rocking lesbian" part), and decided that it was fuckin' brilliant idea!

I'm glad Beth Ditto toned it down for her rendition of what has to be my favorite R&B song of all time. We didn't need her flexing the golden pipes over this one. To be honest, I'd think Beth would be out of her element here, but the shameless feminist punk rocking lesbian sounds right at home making some smooth Rock&B tunes. It's a good look.
