I remember when this song came out and I disliked it from the moment I heard it. I have no idea why though. Listening to it now, it’s really not that bad!
Maneater: Well, if you look at one of my most recent posts, you’ll realise that this ‘title’ does not apply to me. I am in no way a ‘maneater’. In all honesty, I’m pretty much invisible to the opposite sex.
It’s not Nelly Furtado that I have a problem with, I don’t actually know that much about her, I think it’s the lyrics that wind me up.
“Maneater, make you work hard
Make you spend hard
Make you want all, of her love”
To me this implies that you can only have this ‘maneaters’ love if you buy her nice, expensive things. I am the complete opposite to this. I hate it when people buy stuff for me! If you want my love, money doesn’t come into it. Just show me affection and laugh at my terrible sense of humour, and we’ll get on fine.
Somehow this song managed to stay at number 1 for 3 weeks!?! I’ll be back with a new number 1 single and a new story about me in a couple of weeks time. See you then!
