peaches on miley cyrus, and being the mother of sex-positive pop
In a new interview with Lena Dunham's Lenny Letter, pioneer provocateur Peaches gives us a crash course on sex positivity in pop music. Turns out, all of your favorite stars are students of the teaches of Peaches:
"Ten years ago, all of the "not yet a woman" stars, like P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, and Avril Lavigne — all of them reached out to me when they were "becoming a woman." When Christina Aguilera was writing "Dirrty," she would listen to "Fuck the Pain Away." Later on, we collaborated. P!nk always came to my shows, and Kesha and Lady Gaga came to my shows. I know they are influenced by what I did because they reached out or there are obvious influences."
Then, she shouts out the one person who hasn't slid in her DMs: "I've never heard from Miley. Everyone asks me about her, but someone should ask her about me."
As she drops her sixth super NSFW studio album Rub, controversy veteran Peaches may feel miffed by the new-gen performer-cum-activist, but it's not even close to the blatant disgust she expresses towards "big dick" Donald Trump, rampant sexual harassment in the music industry, and that god awful gender wage gap.
We'd love to see the two artists get together to spread a sex-positive, gender-bending, feminist message and who knows? Maybe together they can figure out the question even professor Peaches doesn't have an answer to: "Why is it easier to get Viagra than birth control?"
Keep us posted, please.
