Morning Song – Nasty
The internet did not disappoint after last night’s presidential debate. Within minutes of Donald Trump’s bitter, sullen interjection, “Such a nasty woman“, in reference to his rival, Hillary Clinton, remixes of Janet Jackson’s 1986 hit, “Nasty” started appearing.
And appropriately so. Jackson wrote “Nasty” as a response to being cat-called and harassed by a couple of men while walking down the street in Minneapolis one day. It’s one of the great dis tracks; and now its dismissive lyrics (“Nasty boys don’t mean a thing; Oh, you nasty boys”) and funky, propulsive beat are forever yoked to Donald Trump’s public image.
It’s probably better than he deserves.
