Ani DiFranco is one of those middling talents who, with 17 or so albums, can point to maybe eight or nine solid songs.
For years, Ani was a do-it-yourself-er and insisting that all good people must support her. So I bought Living In A Clip (or Living In Clip -- blame here, not me, the cover was ruined and I bought the CD new and when it came out -- I thought that was how the cover was supposed to look) and grimaced at her bad, bad attempts at jokes.
That double disc album is the perfect example of Ani's sad career. "Both Hands," "Napolean" and the gravel road song. That's all that's worth it.
"32 Flavors," for example, is so precious it can make your teeth ache.
Ani wanted everyone to support her even though she was a real bitch when someone called her a folkie or expected her to have some sort of a feminist art since she was forever calling herself a feminist.
Of course, she was a fraud. She presented herself as the punk-feminist-lesbian. If you missed it, the 'lesbian' is married to a man, has a child and spent the last years playing home maker. (Which was probably for the best art wise since she messed herself up so bad that she can no longer play guitar the way she used to.)
Now the little fraud who pretended to be against wars and wanted you to vote for Ralph Nader in 2000 but honestly cried in 2004 after a radio interview because she was afraid she was going to lose her career if she didn't support John Kerry whored herself.
Now that's all she is, a cheap little whore.
POLITICO reports the whore has a 'political' album coming out. Don't waste your money on the fraud. Little Bitch needs to buy some goodies for her spoiled brat daughter. That's all it is.
Make Little Bitch work a real job. We've 'patronized the arts' long enough when it comes to her.hobby passed off as a career.
Cheap trash wants you to know Barack is the answer.
I think I liked her better when she was pretending to be a lesbian and pretending to be against wars and Wall Street and singing songs like about how there was no difference between the two major parties ("Fuel"). She's become a Desperate Housewife. Just another victim of the patriarchy.
Don't waste your money on her illness.
