Um, wow. JP Eichmiller stated in his column last week that he believes that "naked breasts and gangster rap are more reflective of our culture than Paul McCartney will ever be?!"
I understand that Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake may have a youthful, energetic, teenage following, but Paul has staying power! The minute the Beatles hit our soil the culture began to change. Everything from hairstyles to bell-bottoms to electric guitar to love-song lyrics were influenced by the Fab Four and as their songs became darker and more complex, so did American culture and the styles associated with it (think the hippie movement).
While it seems like it's boobs over Beatles, think again. Breasts define our culture? If we were a culture more accepting of sexuality, like Europe, her boob would have never even made headlines!
