New WAG Introduction: Amy Macdonald
Amy Macdonald, the Scottish singer, has been reportedly dating Steve Lovell, an English striker who plays for Aberdeen. The irony of it all is that Macdonald has an aptly titled song, “Footballer’s Wife,” on her new album that goes about bashing the obsession of women to hook a footballer to gain celebrity:
But still the footballer's wife tells her troubles and strife
I just don't care in the end
Who is she to pretend
That she's one of them?
I don't think so
And the girl from that show
Yes the one we all know
She thinks she's some kinda star
Yes you know who you are
I don't think so, I don't think so
But she defends her songwriting by making a Cheryl Cole-esque excuse about having her career and Lovell having his. Yadda yadda yadda…
"It is a song about obsession with celebrity and people being famous for no reason and being talentless and getting there simply for who they are with," Amy told the Daily Record. "It's totally not the case with me and has nothing to do with Steve's occupation. I like to think I got where I am because of the amount of hard work I've put in."
"I don't feel bad for writing that song because I believe everything in it," she added. "Just because I might be going out with someone who plays football doesn't mean I've turned into a celebrity-crazed famehungry woman. I'm definitely not a WAG."
Unfortunately love, you have to live with the title, just like the rest of them.
