The new definition of Nasty Woman:
A woman who is smart, powerful, and a little cunning. She shatters glass ceilings and revels in her victory over those who seek to silence her.
(And rocks a pantsuit like nobody’s business.)
Here is a playlist for all the nasty women out there:
This playlist wouldn’t be badass without Beyonce’s most zero-f***s-given track to date.
Cake: Short Skirt/Long Jacket
This is a song about a nasty woman (with a sense of humor).
Can you imagine a better Nasty Woman theme song?
Pharrell: Lost Queen
Nasty Women deserve to be worshipped.
Nina Simone: Do I Move You?
One of the sexiest song I’ve ever heard. There’s nothing quite like a powerful woman demanding she gets hers.
Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins: Handle With Care
Nasty Women get where they are, breaking glass ceilings and so forth, by overcoming incredible challenges. If you have the pleasure of loving a Nasty Woman, handle her with care. She’ll take no less.
Fiona Apple: Extraordinary Machine
Nasty Women are resilient, constantly learning and adapting to the ever changing world and the problems we face. “Be kind to me or treat me mean, I’ll make the most of it. I’m an extraordinary machine.”
Gillian Welch: Dark Town of Mind
Nasty Women are complex.
Courtney Barnett: Pedestrian at Best
Nasty Women are complex—Part 2
“I think you’re a joke but I don’t find you very funny.”
Janet Jackson: Nasty
You didn’t think I’d forget the most important track of all, did you? Here’s hoping SNL will do a remake of this for Ms. Clinton. Some lyrics we don’t need to change: “Privacy is my middle name. My last name is control.”
