Camille Paglia Has Yet To Write Her "Thunder Kiss '65"

Ann Powers takes on the Camille Paglia/Lady Gaga flap in the Los Angeles Times (as well as the always-present, always-thorny topic of sex in pop music), and here's part of the setup: "[Paglia's] prose style is bloody and lurid and sometimes effectively comical, like a Rob Zombie-directed horror movie; it's hard to turn away."

We can all agree, though, that Paglia is "More Human than Human," right?

Remember when Babs used to blast "Thunderkiss" to scare away the paparazzi? Man, she's lucky none of those guys were sweet hesh-bros. They coulda just whistled while they worked!

Christ, what a bore. '90s feminism is the least interesting social movement of the 20th century, the least sufferable wing of which surely wields electric guitars.

I long ago stopped reading anything BY Paglia, because it was all just too stupid for words. I really should stop reading anything ABOUT Paglia, as well… it only encourages her. But it's rather like watching a train wreck, isn't it? I find it hard to turn away.
