Especially in Michigan
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


Life is my friend
Rake it up to take it in
Wrap me in your cinnamon
Especially in Michigan
Well I could be your friend

White clouds I'm in
A mitten full of fisherman
C'mon huckleberry finn
Show me how to make her grin
Well I'm in Michigan

Cry me a future
Where the revelations run amok
Ladies and gentlemen
Lions and tigers come running
Just to steal your luck

A rainy Lithuanian
Who's dancing as an Indian
Painted in my tiger skin
Especially in Michigan

Double chins and bowling pins
Unholy Presbyterians
Land is full of medicine
I find it when I'm slipping in

The tainted new librarian (into Michigan)
Who fainted when she tucked you in
Let's float away like zeppelins
On stoic gusts of northern wind

Cry me a future
Where the revelations run amok
Ladies and gentlemen
Lions and tigers come running
Just to steal your luck

Out on the farm we'll be
Swimming with the mother duck
Deep in the mitten where
Lions and tigers come running
Just to steal your luck

Life is my friend
Underwater violins
Order now from ho chi min
A porcelain that comes in twins

Throw me in the looney bin
'Cause I can take it on the chin (when I'm in Michigan)
The cleavage of your pillow skin
Is moving like a violin

Cry me a future
Where the revelations run amok
Ladies and gentlemen
Lions and tigers come running
Just to steal your luck

Out on the farm we'll be
Swimming with the mother duck
Deep in the mitten where
Lions and tigers come running
Just to steal your luck, yeah

Sexual Harassment: Music -- Our report on the state of the music industry

By Melissa Rawlins Updated December 06, 1991 at 05:00 AM EST

There’s a word for it in the music-video business, where male fantasies of young, compliant women are the very heart of commerce. ”That sexy-babe, bimbo kind of stuff that the labels always want,” says a woman who’s made rock videos for years, ”my friends and I in the industry refer to it as ‘babeage.’ It’s part of just an overwhelming predeliction for sleazy male behavior in this business.”

Babeage. What would rock & roll be without it? Just peek into the fantasy world of music videos. What you see isn’t real, but real people produce those videos, and the often graphic, violent sexuality they contain. So it’s no surprise that babeage is a buzzword. Insiders say that in the world of pop and rock-an insular world ruled by six major recording conglomerates, in which only one woman (Sylvia Rhone, chairman of Atco/East West) is at the top-sexual harassment is not just rampant but epidemic, more pervasive than in any other branch of entertainment.



Ugly stories come not just from the lowly but from people at all levels of the business. There’s Mary Cary, guitarist for Rosary, a female hard-rock band, describing a pawing studio owner who demanded sex in exchange for recording time. ”He told us that if we slept with him, he would get us a label deal, and he was just a sleazy little studio guy with no power.” And the notoriously raunchy band the Red Hot Chili Peppers, reversing the roles in an interview for Creem with journalist Nina Malkin, bombarded her with lewd questions about her sex life. (”They were just goofing,” their manager says.) At a radio industry convention last year, top radio consultant Randy Michaels hired a stripper, disguised as a waitress, to have her shirt ripped off during a panel on contemporary hit radio. And an executive at a major label made assignments to employees while playing pornographic tapes on his VCR — ”He did it just to humiliate us,” one woman said.

”The industry promotes the bimbo image very well,” says an ex-label executive, who left the business because of what she characterized as its unacceptably sexist environment. ”The man in music spends his day promoting bimbos on album covers, and the women in the office are viewed as just more of those bimbos. Not all men see it this way, obviously. But the violence is there. In this business, people are reduced to things, and it’s awful.”



That’s an attitude that often starts near the very top — in the offices, say, of an Abbey Konowitch, 40, who in the mid-’80s was vice president for video and artist development for Arista Records. In July 1987, Arista promoted a woman named Joanne Smat into Konowitch’s department, as national manager of artist development. Although several women alleged to Entertainment Weekly reporters that Konowitch verbally abused female coworkers, Smat is the only one willing to go on the record with charges. Because she has since married and left the music business to become an advertising executive, she no longer feels her career is threatened. Other sources, male and female, have confirmed Smat’s story but stressed that if Konowitch found out their names, their careers would be ruined.







“After a very short time it became apparent that there was a certain way Abbey operated, and that I was not going to be able to handle it,” says Smat. His method of operation, she says, included repeatedly asking such questions as ”Can I bite you?” ”Can I touch your thigh?” ”Can I bite your ass?” According to Smat, he predicted that she would sleep with him on a company trip to Maui. She decided to stay home. The day Konowitch began instructing an intern in ”shooting rubber bands at my ass,” Smat says, she was so fed up she walked out of the office.

She says she asked a female executive for advice and was sent to a vice president. He said he’d give her a transfer, effectively a demotion, to a secretarial position. In November 1987, she consulted lawyer Michael Holland.

”He knew of other cases where women had been physically fondled and the lawyers weren’t able to make (the charges) stick because of difficulties of proof,” she says. ”He basically said the law doesn’t work and you don’t have a choice.” ”I advised her that since she was considering other career options anyway, maybe she should just move on,” confirms Holland. Smat resigned in January 1988.

Konowitch declines to comment. His attorney denies Smat’s allegations and claims Arista has no record of any formal complaints or discussions of Smat’s charges. A woman who worked with Smat and Konowitch maintains, however, that there were several formal meetings between Smat and a top Arista manager. ”One of the vice presidents,” she says, ”called up every woman who worked with Abbey and said, ‘Does he really do these kinds of things?’ And all of us said yes. Their solution was to ask us if we wanted to transfer to other departments.”

”On a day-to-day basis Abbey would say gross things,” she says. ”If you asked him for a vacation day, he’d say, ‘Scratch my back and I’ll think about it.’ And he was serious. There were two ways you could handle it. You could just laugh or ignore it or swear at him, or you could really let it get to you. Joanne didn’t want to put up with it — and she shouldn’t have had to — and she complained.”

”Complaints were made by Joanne to me,” says Roy Lott, executive vice president and general manager of Arista Records. ”The situation was analyzed. I, and others, talked to various people. And we found no basis for taking any action against Abbey Konowitch.”

Konowitch’s career apparently has not been affected by any of the complaints. He is now senior vice president for music and talent at MTV, where he decides which bands’ videos get airtime. Last year he was selected as one of Entertainment Weekly‘s Power 101 (he was No. 25).
