Abigail Breslin’s “You Suck” Is The Most Bravely Titled Song of 2014
Abigail Breslin, the little girl who was nominated for an Oscar in 2006 for Little Miss Sunshine, is now 18 and has released a pop single called “You Suck.” I’ll be the first to congratulate Breslin on her bravery, as that song title opens herself up to a TON of easy criticism via Twitter and YouTube commenters.
Now, the reason this might be seen as “childish” is because “You Suck” is ostensibly about Breslin’s ex-boyfriend, 5 Seconds of Summer member Michael Clifford. The song sounds not just a little like Taylor Swift, of whom Breslin is obviously a fan, and features her in a cowboy hat strumming a guitar.
It’s a bit uncomfortable to see a young woman, and someone we remember as a child, dedicating time to chewing out a guy, to say nothing of the other young women singing “SUH-UH-UH-UCK” repeatedly, but if “You Suck” does become the subject of Internet ridicule, I will remind you of the career trajectory of “Chinese Food” singer Alison Gold.
That’s right. We mocked her relentlessly when this song came out, and now look what a big star she is.
