”I was dead sick and tired of all of these songs by the R&B girls, the trios and stuff. They were all victimized by love. I was sick of it. I didn’t want to portray myself or women as victims … That was one of the things that was really clear. I think I can take credit for having clarity about that … I don’t think I tried to be an important feminist, I didn’t have that kind of clarity, but I had a stubbornness and an independence and that came across So that was good. I think that it was an idea that was bound to happen, I was just in the right place at the right time.”

Debbie Harry talks to the The Sunday Times Magazine what inspired her music. Damn. She’s so badass it hurts. Excuse me, gonna go listen to Blondie now. [XPose]

I had managed to convince my parents to let me spend the warm months in the city so I could work, which was secret code for “have the best summer of my life with my new boyfriend Travis.” It was an amazing plan—until he broke my heart of glass one week later. “I met someone else,” he told me while I was hanging on the telephone. “She lives across the hall from me in my dorm.”

I’ll rip her to shreds, I thought, but instead I just hung up. There I was, a girl all alone in the city with absolutely no one. So I popped in my new Blondie record “Parallel Lines.” Once I had a love and it was a gas, soon found out, I had a heart of glass. Seemed like the real thing but I was so blind, mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind. Keep reading »

Barbie Goes Back To The ’80s

Barbie collectors, get psyched for December: Mattel is launching their “Ladies of the ’80s” line, complete with mini interpretations of the great Joan Jett, Debbie Harry, and Cyndi Lauper. Joan is dressed in not only leather pants but also hot pink high tops, while Cyndi flashes her fishnets, and Debbie shows off a pink body-conscious strappy dress that could easily be worn today. One thing that would make these dolls even better? They should come with their own personal soundtracks. [Jezebel]
