September 4 [13:00 EDT] -- Meredith Brooks is finding what the downside is to creating a largely successful anthem with your first single... people just can't seem to get around it.
Even though "Bitch" [800k QuickTime] has been a hit for Brooks, she insists there are other songs on her "Blurring The Edges" album that reveal other aspects of her personality: for instance, being a nonconformist, in the tune "Shatter."
"There's a line there that says 'I stumble hard, but I'm not sleeping in your bag,' and a lot of people think that's a sexual meaning, but it's not." Brooks told MTV News. "It really means that I stood up for what I believed in with my music, and didn't join in a particular trend in any way shape or form. That I was asked to do many times, to do other records in other ways, and I chose to wait it out, until I could do the record I wanted to do."
Brooks will play a cozy gig for 200 fans this Thursday night
at Manhattan's Guild Theater, but even if you can't make it to New York you can still catch the show.
Before heading next door to Radio City Music Hall to see how her two Video Music Award nominations pan out, Brooks will see her concert carried live right here at MTV.com beginning at 6 p.m. Eastern time.
Forget what you know about lame-ass one-webcam cybercasts. Brooks' set will be the first ever multi-camera webcast, and the first foray into streaming audio and video for MTV Interactive.
