MUSIC VIDEO/SONG

"Bitch" by Meredith Brooks - 

Despite starting in the music industry at the age of 15, Meredith was 39 when she recorded this. The song explores the complexities of being a woman, and how one label cannot define her.
 
"Bitch" is one of those borderline offensive words, which created some problems for radio stations playing this song. While Elton John's "The Bitch Is Back" proved that it was possible to have a hit song with "Bitch" in the title, some radio stations still refused to mention this by its name, instead referring to it as "a song by Meredith Brooks."
 
Meredith has since admitted that "Bitch" nearly didn't get recorded until a friend lent her some money to hire a studio.
 
Brooks did all the guitar work on Blurring The Edges, including glass slide, some e-bow and wah-wah. She said: "If I had listed a guy as a guitarist in the liner notes, everyone would've thought that he played all the cool stuff. So I decided to do it all myself just to prove that I could. Now I want all those 13-year-olds - especially the girls who don't have role models - to look at me with confidence and say, 'I can do that,' and go and pick up a guitar. When I was growing up, I didn't have many female guitarists to look up to."
 
"Bitch" featured in the 2000 film What Women Want.

Very, very sad to see someone that attractive sing something that bad!   no

I think this is more of a "chick" song, maybe that's why?
