We’re used to seeing Rachel Bloom on TV every week as Rebecca Bunch, the deeply troubled protagonist of Crazy Ex-Griflriend, a show Rachel created with Aline Brosh McKenna (27 Dresses, The Devil Wears Prada).
Now that CEG is on hiatus while it’s genius creators and writers write the 3rd season – Rachel is keeping busy and being a #LadyBoss by bringing her unique songwriting style to many different places.
Bloom wrote a song for the Supergirl/The Flash musical crossover, she contributed TWO songs to Bill Nye’s new Netflix series, and she wrote the ultimate Lady Boss anthem for Vanity Fair’s Founder’s Fair – “a conference celebrating female entrepreneurs!”
The song is a perfect materialization of what goes through every anxious millennial woman’s mind when they have to tell someone at work to do something:
- Do we present it in a nice way?
- Do we care what you think of us?
- HOW MUCH BOOB IS TOO MUCH BOOB?
- Should we let Derrick (who spells his name in the most obnoxious way possible) have a say in any of it?
It also reminds us that *gets up on rooftop* *grabs megaphone*
~ OTHER WOMEN ARE NOT A THREAT TO YOU;
THEIR SUCCESS DOES NOT MEAN YOUR FAILURE ~
The only question the video manages to answer is that literally no one cares what Derrick thinks but it does manage to make us laugh while highlighting a lot of the very real sexism and misogyny women face at work.
