Women have always been pushed through the paparazzi wringer. Since the ‘50s with such cultural icons as Marilyn Monroe, tabloids and the media at large have pumped out salacious headlines to sell papers. In the ‘90s, figures like Britney Spears and Monica Lewinsky were treated much the same way. It seems appropriate that UPSAHL’s new single, aptly titled “Monica Lewinsky,” serves as an ode to those women who rose above it all, even though the world would rather push them down. “I wanna, wanna make history like Britney, like Lindsay, stunna like Monica Lewinsky / No really / That stone cold hot girl feelin’,” sings UPSAHL.
