Okay, I'm not the target demo for this song -- "Come and Get It" -- so I'll just leave the fact that I kind of hate it alone for now.

So there's nothing vaguely ethnographically problematic about that performance, right? WHEW." Gomez's former beau Justin Bieber was in the news today, too, for saying he would hope Anne Frank would be a "Belieber" if she were still with us. Sigh, these kids…
