I Ain't Talking Poultry....Lyric Day

"I ain't talkin' poultry when I say this chicken's fried." 

So as the first lyric day in um, ages, I thought I'd start with a cracker of a line. In case you didn't know - and I'm not sure how many Britney fans read *this* blog - the above lyric is taken from her recent song Til The World Ends. Except this is the Nicki Minaj + Ke$ha version. Yes, and they talk about poultry in it. As well as various other interesting lyrical references that seem utterly meaningless to me, but make me giggle on the way to work.

One of the best things (!) about being hard of hearing is that quite often you get the words wrong with songs - they can't possibly be saying what you think they're saying....can they? In this case, Nicki Minaj definitely is talking about chickens. F**k knows why. And what it's got to do with Britney. Unless she's saying she's no spring chicken. (Fact fans you'll be interested to know that Britters and I are the same age. Oh yes. Look how similar we are....)

The actual remix itself, IMO, is fab. It was written by Ke$ha for Britney and I love the production and the chorus -it's got a great mix of sounds and just generally is a lot of fun. I've always been a bit of a Britney fan to be fair (I know, how does that sit with RATM + Muse, I don't know) and there is just *something* about her. It's kind of that car crash thing with her. You never know what she'll do next - from very public breakdowns, spur of the moment marriages, to shagging Justin Timberlake and asking her fans to f*ck her (cf: "If You Seek Amy" - say it very fast...took me about 6 months to get the fuss about this one).

So here's a bit of fun for your saturday afternoon (because it's saturday afternoon here whilst I'm writing it - but you can read this anytime!):


[Nicki Minaj]

Chimpanzee's is hatin' but I take it all in stride
