While rehearsing her song “Break the Rules” for the American Music Awards (AMAs)–which air Sunday, November 23 at 8pm on ABC–British pop singer Charli XCX was told that her dancing was too “phallic.” She’s taking the criticism in stride. She tweeted the reaction to all her 505,000 followers on Twitter. And followed it with “…make sure u tune in on Sunday !!!”
Here is the chorus to “Break the Rules“: “I don’t wanna go to school, I just wanna break the rules, Boys and girls across the world, Putting on our dancing shoes, Going to the discotheque, Getting high and getting wrecked, I don’t wanna go to school, I just wanna break the rules.” “Break the Rules” is on her new, second album Sucker. Which doesn’t necessarily refer to people who buy it.
