fuck the haters, they make me stronger: Music Monday 13.2.2012

"I'm sorry, Russell who?"

The women worth looking up to are the ones who ignore the naysayers, overcome hardships & go on to be brilliant.

Last night, like most of the world, I was tuned in to the Grammys. I admit I didn't pay full attention to most of the show, but when Katy Perry took the stage, I couldn't look away. Here's why:

Having just broken up with her husband, Katy's presumably been pretty shaken. But not only did she perform, she sang what sounded like a big "fuck you to her ex". Sure, the song was written a year ago, but it has a lot more emotion and relevance now, doesn't it?

Katy is vibrant, not just in spite of her break-up, but maybe because of it: She's stronger and brighter than ever before. Let's be inspired by that today while we dance to her latest single!

Days like this I want to drive away
Pack my bags and watch your shadow fade
You chewed me up and spit me out
Like I was poison in your mouth
You took my light, you drained me down
But that was then and this is now
Now look at me!

This is the part of me that you're never gonna ever take away from me
This is the part of me that you're never gonna ever take away from me
Throw your sticks and your stones,
Throw your bombs and your blows
But you're not gonna break my soul

Here is the video with full lyrics:
