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.

Her last album, 2009′s It’s Not Me, It’s You, gleefully genre-hopped from electro to country & western to pure pop, all the while making sly, sarcastic statements about the fetishization of celebrity (“The Fear”), boys who don’t believe in the concept of equality in the bedroom (“Not Fair”), and her issues with the politics of George Bush (“F*** You”).
