Sady and I were talking last week about the song Hollaback Girl. I’m a big fan of Gwen Stefani and No Doubt and I’ve blogged a couple of times inspired by her songs. One of my favourites is Spiderwebs. Anyway, Sady and I were talking about the meaning of the song Hollaback Girl which sent me off to good ole Google to dig some more.
Urban Dictionary quotes it as:
A “hollaback girl” is a girl who responds only with these verbal insults, without ever actually taking it to the next level and kicking some ass. In other words, a hollaback girl is all talk and no walk.
That definition seems to work with the lyrics of the song for sure:
I heard that you were talking shit
And you didn’t think that I would hear it
People hear you talking like that, getting everybody fired up
So I’m ready to attack, gonna lead the pack
Gonna get a touchdown, gonna take you out
That’s right, put your pom-poms down, getting everybody fired up
However, as always with urban dictionary there is a difference of opinions with another person citing the definition as:
Regardless of which is true, and while I’m absolutely 100% confident, based on experience, that some women can be both of these things, I love the song and always have. I’m definitely with Gwen on this one though…I ain’t no hollaback girl…either way.
