If I read one more rave review of Duran Duran's "Girl Panic" music video, I will seriously panic (and I already am on anti-anxiety/panic medication).
I cannot apologize for my following words.
Duran Duran is defined by their extraordinary musical talent and their "extraordinary taste in women." They get a thrill over society-defined beautiful women, a.k.a supermodels. Simon Le Bon is married to a model. Nick Rhodes was married to a model and has since dated society-defined beautiful women. John Taylor is married to the founder of Juicy Couture - the brand speaks for itself. Roger Taylor is married to a society-defined beautiful woman. And for the record all children born into these marriages will grow into society-defined beauty.
I do not consider myself society-defined beautiful. I never have and never will, mostly do to lack of self-esteem and confidence. I am, quite simply, regular. Regular in its meaning is a concept the members of Duran Duran will never know and fully appreciate.
The band's depiction of "regular women" is sorely flawed in the video of "Girl Panic." Therefore, I personally rate this video severely low.
I will always love Duran Duran's music and talent.
I suppose the elite in any form sometimes need to fall below the clouds and live in reality.
