I think what Droga5 is doing with Covergirl is synonymous with what Roxy Music did when everyone was settled on rock music being the real thing. Authentic, dirty, guitar strumming as the natural thing to do, the manly thing, real and nothing but real.

Roxy Music brought the art back into rock music and proved to the world that rock had no boundaries and could very well have an artificial side to it. That of glam rock.

In midst of contemporary tendencies of stripping down, being bare faced as if no make up would be a certificate for authenticity, and a password to heaven. Purity. Photoshop is from the devil. In midst of such sentiments, Droga5 and Covergirl tells you another story, one acknowledging that you or any woman can make up whatever woman she wants to be. Its what females have always been good at and you can make up to fit any occasion.

Either way, I love the ring of the headline and the opportunity to be whatever you want to be with a little help form Covergirl. No?
