Excuse Me? Whatchu Said To Me?***

Look here.

I loves me some Goldfrapp. I'm even digging on the whole 80's Branigan realness of Head First. But you just don't go messing with La Reine.

Back in 2006, Miss Alison tsk-tsked her fans when they started referring to Madonna as "Oldfrapp."

From an article:

The NUMBER ONE hit-maker was thrilled when the 47-year-old superstar named the second Goldfrapp album SUPERNATURE as her favourite disc of 2005, but her delight quickly turned sour when fans pilloried the aging singer.

She says, "It's nasty and unfair. It's great to see a woman of her age still performing and producing such fantastic work."

Of the queen of pop's comments, Goldfrapp says, "I take that as a real compliment."

What a difference a few years make.

AbsoluteMadonna posted the following from a 2010 interview with Alison Goldfrapp:

Q: Have you ever heard Madonna’s ‘Like It Or Not’ from ‘Confessions on A Dancefloor’? It was her attempt at making a Goldfrapp record. ‘Black Cherry’ to be specific.

Alison Goldfrapp : ‘Never heard it, that song. I couldn’t care less what she or whoever does. Madonna is always copying other people’s work. yuck.’

Q: Well you guys are quite good at it yourself : ‘Ooh La La’ was a T-Rex rip-off. ‘Cologne Cerrone Houdini’ could have been any Gainsbourg song on ‘Historie de Melody Nelson’. And those are just two examples.

Alison Goldfrapp : ‘We have a perfectly legitimate post-modern explanation for that. Those songs are an Hommage! We steal like magpies but we pay tribute to our heroes at any chance we get, in interviews etc.. . Everyone should know by now that Marc Bolan was my idol growing up. But we’ll never be caught following the latest trend or collaborating with the hottest DJs and producers just to get their names on our record sleeves. That’s not our style.

Alison, darling, I love you like Amy loves Blake, but we will CUT a bitch.

  4. lol an hommage? sure....does she have a perfectly legitimate post modern explanation for being a disrespectful bitch? real classy, she can say all she wants, i guess while people are kinda paying attention to her cause I can guarantee people won't care or be hearing music from Goldfrapp 20 years from now like Madonna has lasted.

  5. She can say whatever she wants but I'm less and less into Goldfrapp. And she better start looking for ''hot DJ & producers'' because in less than a year ''Head First'' will be chewed up and spat out.

  6. Wow, this bitch is becoming more obnoxious by the day. I want to like them--five years ago I thought they were sh*t hot. But now? Eh.

    But M? All hail.
