These days, we’re not running short on girl power anthems. Our favorite pop starts from Katy Perry to Beyoncé are proclaiming the power of women, and bringing feminism to pop music in exciting new ways. However, it’s not all girl love in the world of pop. Competitiveness, arguments over men, jealousy and slut shaming are still sneaking their way into music… and the music of women. For a generation of females who claim to be liberated, there’s still a lot of girl-on-girl resentment going on, and we’ve put together a list of 20 songs, sung by women, that express blatantly anti-feminist sentiment.
From pre-”Flawless” Bey in Desitiny’s Child slagging off women for the way they dress, to Taylor Swift trying to steal someone else’s boyfriend, these ladies are getting very snarky about other women. Name calling abounds as everyone from Nicki Minaj to P!nk enter the war of words, putting down women for being too provocative, not pretty enough, or for simply dating the man they have a crush on. We’re glad many of these women also have more positive songs in their back catalogs — we’d prefer it if the sisterhood could just stick together!
