‘Louder’ is the latest single from Lea Michele that her P.R. machine and sycophants are declaring a successful triumph just six months after losing Dead Cory Monteith. I’ve listened to far too many crappy over-produced tracks from Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga and this doesn’t even rise to that crappy category. As much as teen girls want to believe in the dream of shrieking in your boyfriend’s ear until he finds a needle full of heroin big enough to make the nails on the chalkboard stop, I don’t see this track joining the teen girl shitty music pantheon. Still, I’m told it’s a triumph of the spirit. I’m sure they’re right.
Here’s Lea Michele hiking in a sports bra. This is also a triumph of her will to overcome adversity and the homeless who routinely line this particular hiking route in L.A. to get in a decent tug.
Still, we can’t overlook it’s triumph of the human spirit.
