"Woman" is the first "Woman" by a woman to hit the Hot 100. Three prior entries titled "Woman" reached the chart, all by male acts: by
 John Lennon (No. 2, 1981); Peter and Gordon (No. 14, 1966); and Raheem DeVaughn (No. 96, 2008).

Woman is one of her lyrically dumbest songs ever. She makes no interesting point in the song. Why would you be proud to be a woman or a man? That's what you were born as, it's not an achievement. I get that it's supposed to be "I'm independant", but the "I'm proud to be a woman" message ruins the first. Being proud or ashamed of your gender is stupid.

 

"Don't buy me a drink, I make my money," is a bad line. Guys aren't allowed to buy Kesha a drink to be nice? What the fuck?

"Don't touch my weave, don't call me honey," another bad line. Men aren't allowed to flirt with Kesha. Again, what the fuck? The music video is literally set in a bar, a typical place of flirtation.

 

Boots & Boys is better. Boots & Boys is also a better woman's empowerment anthem. It's making a statement that woman should be free to objectify men as do to women. 

Blah Blah Blah is also better. In context, it's an anti-female-slut-shaming anthem.

I think you don't understand the context. There is nothing worse that a random creep coming up to someone offering to get you a drink when you're clubbing with your friends. She's saying "don't buy me a drink, I make my money" as - go away, I can get my own drink, I make my money.

I'd just remove the "Kesha is a", there's no point in stating that she's a woman. The song is about Women so it should just be Woman jj3 I like the cover though much better than the original

There's zero context in the song. It doesn't change the fact that the bridge of the song comes off as rude.

This should become a single one day and be performed at on TV. It's one of her best songs to be performed live cry6

I agree. It's a reverse LTLG experience: Woman isn't that good as a song imo (it's good, but not phenomenal), but the live performances are extremely good and make the song far better, while LTLG is a good song, but the live performances are underwhelming (so far).

Agree with all of this! Just look how well she performs Woman: 

 

If she sang this on the EMA's as Independant Woman it would slayyyy!
