I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

BITCH


"Bitch" is a song that was released by Meredith Brooks in 1997 from her album Blurring the Edges.


The song was cowritten by Brooks and Peiken. Initially, some radio stations preferred not to mention the name of the song and would instead refer to it as "a song by Meredith Brooks". However, with time, its name became more commonplace to announce on the air. Later on, different remixes of the song became popular in dance clubs.


Brooks has stated in interviews that "Bitch" was almost omitted from the album, reportedly because of the song's strong language (containing the word 'Bitch'), which could have prevented it from becoming a radio hit.


The song steadily rose on the Billboard Charts, eventually peaking at #2. It debuted and peaked at number six on the UK Singles Chart on 27 July 1997 and stayed in the top ten for four weeks. The song was also a big hit in Oceania, where it reached number two in Australia and four in New Zealand. It ranked #79 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s.

A music video was released to promote the single. It features Brooks on guitar with a flower background swirling behind her. As the song plays, different feminine objects float by showing the softer side of womanhood, such as dolls, babies, and dresses—this visually shows a juxtaposition to the common connotations of a bitch. All is shown in a no gravitation room.


Due to its particularly strong language, the song was heavily censored when it's played on the radio. Also, due to the expletive name, the song was given the alternative title "Nothing In Between". This was the title used in various Asian countries, including Malaysia, when it was first released.
