WHAT? Stereogum’s posting about Nelly Furtado? I know, I wouldn’t have expected it either. I hated her like-a-bird ways, until I heard the infectious “Promiscuous” and “Maneater.” Here are both peformances from SNL:

A) She’s sexy and B) doesn’t use auto tune.
NEKO CASE: I’m not a perfect note hitter either but I’m not going to cover it up with auto tune. Everybody uses it, too. I once asked a studio guy in Toronto, “How many people don’t use auto tune?” and he said, “You and Nelly Furtado are the only two people who’ve never used it in here.” Even though I’m not into Nelly Furtado, it kind of made me respect her. It’s cool that she has some integrity.
I admit there’s something sacrilegious about calling your song “Maneater.” That title BELONGS to Daryl and John, got it Nelly?
I guess this is my guilty pleasure for spring, much like Gwen Stefani was last year. And the back and forth with Timba on “Promiscuous” reminds me of that ’93 Positive K hit “I Got A Man.”
