Gwen Stefani is NOT a HOLLABACK GIRL
I heard that you were talking shit
And you didn't think that I would hear it
People hear you talking like that, getting everybody fired up
So I'm ready to attack, gonna lead the pack
Gonna get a touchdown, gonna take you out
That's right, put your pom-poms downs, getting everybody fired up
This term was popularized by Gwen Stefani, a female vocalist who once performed lead vocals for a rather good band, No Doubt. Gwen has since gone solo, which people either love or hate, depending on how much they suckle upon the mainstream teet.
In her song "Hollaback Girl", Gwen proclaims, when challenged by another girl (even though Gwen can hardly be described as a girl) through insults, that she "Ain't no hollaback girl". This is because Gwen is not a girl, but a woman, isn't going to stand for this, and is going to settle it physically.
(Note: The song, from this point, degrades into the usual Gwen Stefani lyrics: pointless, annoying, and unbearably catchy).
Me: "Miss, excuse me, may I bother you for a moment of your time?"
Idiotic Stefani Follower: "Tru 'dat, wat you be frontin' dawg?"
Me: "I find your lack of gramatical skills, disrespect for the English language, and horrible taste in music appalling."
Idiot, again: "Awwwww hell naw! I kno' you diddin' jus' diss my ass like 'dat. I'm 'boutta cotton candy 'dat ass, I ain't naw hollaback girl."
VERB: a member of a cheerleading squad who repeats – hollers back - words that the squad leader shouts out to them.
'I heard that u were talking sh!t and you didn't think that i would hear it'...
A hollaback girl is one of the backup, inferior cheerleaders. She was not one of those, but the leader.
'we both wanna be the winner but there can only be one'
Gwen Stefani was merely saying that yes, she was a cheerleader, but she was a damn good one!
In the Gwen Stefani song, she uses the cheerleading terminology as a metaphor, she’s a leader & fighter, not a follower.
