Riff: Bridgit Mendler – “Ready or Not”

Jan 9, 2013

Hello my name is, nice to meet you/I think you’re famous, where have I seen you?/You’ll be my William, I’ll be your Kate/Livin’ like a fairy tale

from Ready or Not lyrics by Bridgit Mendler

It couldn’t be more obvious who Bridgit’s target audience is. But even adolescent, suburban teens can’t be dumb enough to buy into this. She’s a constructed pop star from top-to-bottom, and all that really exists here is an average voice auto-tuned to the point of no return.
