Liz Phair Might Become Relevant Again?

Jesus, we hope so. We were big fans of Liz Phair, but stood along with the rest of you, jaws agape, eyes widened in horror, as she attempted to remake herself as a teen pop princess. Anyway, she gave Billboard an interview -- she's hawking the 15th anniversary re-issue of Exile In Guyville -- and dropped some hints that her next disc might not be so sucktastic.
I was recording demos all winter, after taking a few years off, which I needed. The demos were all super cheap, and my friends all lent me their time and got involved. I'm going to start recording in mid-April and hopefully bang this puppy out. I have a strong vision that I can't quite articulate yet, but I'm hoping it'll be clear on the album.
And what does the "blowjob queen" say about girl-power nowadays?
I see all these young women on porn sites, all these sorority girls posting pictures of themselves giving blowjobs and thinking that it's empowering, and I feel like they really missed the point.
Well said, Liz.
