There is nothing new about the debate
over rampant commercialism and Sex and the City
. So, I'm not even going to go into whether empowerment can be achieved through shopping. But, Fergie
's new theme song
for the big-screen SATC
has hit the web, and she has no qualms about making an ode to designer labels. Titled Labels or Love
, the track sounds like a My Humps
redux, and frankly, it's pretty awful. For starters, throughout most of the song I had a hard time understanding what she was even saying. But when you can make out the lyrics, they include such philosophical statements as: "Love is a like a runway," "Stop chasing those boys and shop some more," and "No emotional baggage, just replace it with Dior."
Fans of the show have been awaiting the feature film version with bated breath since the news first hit, and the fever pitch has only risen now that Kim Cattrall
and Sarah Jessica Parker
have been letting the spoilers
fly. Unfortunately, SATC
was never really my thing, so I only have a passing curiosity to see how they translate Carrie and the gang on the screen. One thing is for sure, if this theme song is an indication of the music for the movie, I definitely won't be buying the soundtrack.
Take a listen and tell me what you think: Did Fergie improve upon the original? Or is this track best reserved for the closing credits?
