I'm embarrassed to ask, but what's a "Hollaback Girl" (that which Gwen Stefani ain't)?

Urban Dictionary has two definitions, one of which seems directly related to the Gwen Stafani song.

One who "hollers back", that is, returns a phone call or makes a phone call in response to an in-person request; a woman who is receptive to a man's (romantic or sexual) advances; not a "stuck-up boogee (bourgeois: in this context meaning both middle-class or given to faux middle-class air; not "street") bitch (in this context, meaning any female considered of an age to be sexual active, with only minor pejorative connotation attaching to it).

Response by poster: So, since she ain't no hollaback girl, then she's a bitch. A fighting bitch. How attractive. Glad I asked.
