In preparation for my trip, I bought a new video iPod and gave my old mini to my friend J. On inspecting my music, J. said that I had a lot of "chick music." (Which . . . don't even get me started. Suffice it to say that this is from a person who owns a copy of Rick Springfield's Greatest Hits.) When I asked for an example he cited Aretha Franklin.
I ask you, dear readers, is Aretha Franklin chick music? I say no.
