Taylor Swift could be called America’s sweetheart (as opposed to America’s sweatheart, Tom Arnold). So why in the world would she try to perform a sexy, seductive song about a spoiled gold digger? Take a listen to her version of Santa Baby:
What does the expert on gold diggers have to say about that?
Eartha Kitt played Catwoman, for
Christ’s Santa’s sake!
Some other notable, not-so-wholesome
women artists that have covered this song:
- Macy Gray
- Natalie Merchant
- Faith Evans
- Kylie Minogue
- The Pussycat Dolls
- Kellie Pickler
- LeAnn Rhimes
- Mae West
- Miss Piggy
My favorite, of course, is this version.
Eartha Kidd scared me when I was a kid. Ok, not in person, just in principle. She probably could have scared me in person as an adult, but I’m glad she never found me.
I hearrrrd she’s still been looking forrrr you.
