Carey sets feminism, femininity back another 100 years

Oh, god. It sounds like Mariah Carey's new album is like those old Friends break bumpers for cheap white wine, only with more pink giggling:

"I sat in the hot tub the other night playing some songs for some friends and one of them felt that is was a very pro-woman thing.

"It's not that the songs are male-bashing. It's a fun record."

Now, we could be wrong. Perhaps the record is pro-woman in calling for equal rights, access to education, an end to female circumcision and suttee practices.

But we suspect it isn't.
