It’s unfortunate, that in a world of major economic problems, wars being fought on many fronts, oil drilling companies wrecking the Gulf Of Mexico’s ecosystem, pop music’s only agit-pop totem is a woman who is conflicted on many counts. A woman who attempts to reflect the current zeitgeist through her ‘politically’ charged lyrics whilst living in the up-scale Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, engaged to Ben Brewer, aka Benjamin Zachary Bronfman, son of Warner Music Group CEO Edgar Bronfman Jr. and heir to the Seagram fortune. She even claims that the CIA monitors or invented Google! Nice going.
