MEANING

  • In an interview published in Hot Press on January 26, 1994, Dolores says :” You wouldn’t believe how many men there are in the music industry who look at a woman in a sexual sense and just want to try it on, to get you into bed. Even people that you once respected and that you thought valued you because of your mind, your soul, your talent, end up wanting you for only one thing and that really can be disappointing. You know that they’re secretly saying ‘She’s a great head, and a powerful figure, I wonder have I any chance?’ And worse some of them want to possess you, which is even more frightening. One song on the new album ‘Ridiculous Thoughts’, is about people you once thought were people you respected, until you realised their minds were filled with trivia.
