Her Pinkness likely had no idea that the Stooges used Fun House as the moniker for a genius 1970 album — but the fact that this possibility can't be entirely ruled out demonstrates why she's several cuts above the average popster. She's grown increasingly confident with each passing album, and if "So What" and "Bad Influence" aren't all that musically innovative, she sells them on the power of her gimlet-eyed sass alone. Sure, some of the ballads are merely passable, and on "Mean," she not only rhymes "sad," "bad" and "had" — way to go out on a limb, Mrs. Seuss — but she also makes the dubious decision to imitate Kid Rock. And yet her personality is strong enough to overcome every obstacle, including ones she creates herself. Iggy would approve.
