BURCHILL GERTCHA: We never really thought that Julie Burchill was especially bright, but today's think piece in the Guardian takes the prize - she's Too Stupid To Understand Pink Songs. Julie, sit down - she's not beating herself up over "not being conventionally pretty" - the point about the line is that she's saying she isn't, in her opinion, pretty at all, and has more about herself than that, anyway. It's a statement of pride, not shame. Sure, it might be debatable, but really, if top 40 pop songs are beyond your grasp, maybe you should stick to writing hurt letters to the Evening Argus.
