Because Simon Cowell recently dissed Bob Dylan -- the American Idol judge said he'd rather listen to Kelly Clarkson than the singing poet, whom he finds to be a "bore" -- I've been listening to Dylan all day in his defense. Specifically, I keep listening to "Like a Rolling Stone" because I also just read somewhere that it's about Edie Sedgwick, who is the subject of the new biopic Factory Girl starring Sienna Miller. I hear the lyrics in a whole different way now that I knew who's behind the song. It's weird.
Speaking of See-See... The fact that she's getting all this Oscar buzz makes me want to poke my eyes out with one of Pete Doherty's syringes. (What? He's not using them at the moment. They're lonely.) And all her interviews are excruciating... I don't know why I even bother skimming them. All she does is talk about the how people are obsessed with her love life. Ummm... her love life is what made her famous -- not her acting. So Jude Law's ex should be grateful we even know who she is... otherwise she wouldn't be pimping Factory Girl right now. She'd be a sales girl at Harrods buying her bizarre fashions with her employee discount.
Anyway, back to Dylan. The lyrics to "Like a Rolling Stone" after the jump.
