And yeah I really do think....

I find it frustrating that a pop singer who's been around for about a decade and a half figures prominently in 90% of the conversation about a word that has been part of the English language for 500 years, the proper usage of which she never understood in the first place. It's just so... oh, what's the word I'm looking for...?

She's still unique in her approach to music. I appreciate that.

I use words that I think I know the meaning of and don't all the time. My wife laughs at me.

Oh, but this goes beyond using the wrong word in conversation.

Don't get me started on this song. I yell at it all the time, "No, it's not ironic, it just sucks!" And then I proceed to sing over all of the "Isn't it ironic"s with "Doesn't it just suck."
