Without this Sunday’s Fierce Female, karaoke as we know it would never be the same! How else would angst ridden girls be able to vent their frustrations without a little bit of “Love Is a Battlefield“??
Pat Benatar was (still is in my eyes) the quintessential 80s pop/rock goddess. She burst onto the music scene in the late 70s and was a huge hit with her racy on stage spandex clad outfits which she absolutely despised, but her record label insisted upon. She fought against the overly sexed-up on stage persona and eventually got her say in the way she dressed and her overall image.
This Sunday I raise my leg-warmers and toast Pat, one rocking “Invincible” bad-ass!
“For every day since I was old enough to think, I’ve considered myself a feminist … It’s empowering to watch and to know that, perhaps in some way, I made the hard path [women] have to walk just a little bit easier.” – Pat Benatar
