Fiona Apple-of-the-month club

noun phrase. A club I'm unlikely to join without a talent infusion and a surgical intervention.

Real citation: "With her singer-songwriter pretensions grounded by trip-hop beats, Taja Sevelle comes off like a charter member of the Fiona Apple-of-the-month club."
(Nov. 21, 2007, Matt Diehl, Entertainment Weekly,,,290387,00.html)

Made-up citation: "There are worse things than joining the Fiona Apple-of-the-month club. I've been in the Celine-Dion-of-the-week club since high school, and it's a terrible burden. Also, that South Park song is very hurtful."
