i am not a hollaback girl, either

Heather has so kindly reminded me that I needed to look up the meaning of Gwen Stefani’s latest hit single. I’ve managed to hear it enough that it stuck in my mind, and that’s despite not ever turning on pop radio anymore. I found this useful Wikipedia entry about the song, which then led me to this most excellent analysis of the lyrics. This sh*t is b-a-n-a-n-a-s.
