The ”I am but a simple artist, trapped by my ungrateful public” refrain is as old as pop music. Now Lil’ Kim, on the eve of her prison sentence, has a new single, ”Shut Up Bitch” (”Everybody talkin’, all these haters hawkin’/Paparazzi stalkin’ takin’ pictures while I’m walkin’/Damn can’t a bitch breathe?”). A survey of other recent rants.

WAKE UP, HILARY DUFF

SAMPLE LYRICS ”People all around you, they don’t really know you/ Everybody’s watching like it’s some kind of show. . .”

AGGRO FACTOR (1-10) 2. Care Bears are more fierce. And possibly less adorable.

RUMOURS, LINDSAY LOHAN

SAMPLE LYRICS ”I’m tired of rumours starting/I’m sick of being followed/I’m tired of people lying/Saying what they want about me.”

AGGRO FACTOR 5. One angry teenage millionaire — this is Lindsay: Fully Goaded.

I JUST WANNA LIVE, GOOD CHARLOTTE

SAMPLE LYRICS ”These people are freakin’ me out (these days)/It’s getting hectic everywhere that I go. . .”

AGGRO FACTOR 6.5. For the heartfelt cri de coeur of punk rockers with too many Louis Vuitton totes.

U DON’T KNOW ME, T.I.

SAMPLE LYRICS ”Save all that hatin’ and tha poppin’, nigga you don’t know me/Quit tellin’ niggas you my partner, nigga you don’t know me/Don’t be a groupie keep it movin’. . .”

AGGRO FACTOR Definitely at least a 9. He’s mad, yo!
