former singer of punky/surf band No Doubt. along the line, someone told gwen she was the best thing
about no doubt; she started watching
their own promo
videos (where pop directors concentrated on her- sex sells) and she took all that bullshit seriously. but hey, thats what
cocaine does to you. now, shes living in la la land, has orientalised (see Edward W. Said 'Orientalism') japanese
culture and is more of a softcore porn star
than a musician.
her most recent single (of march25/05) 'rich girl' embodies notions of consumerism and excess. she is the tip on an iceberg of fat, sleaze
