Do you want the truth or something beautiful?

The statement from 2:06 into this YouTube-video:

Rather unexpected the debate between infographic artists whether or not to use circles in your graphics – ie bubble charts – has now got an entry from a popular singer.

Paloma Faith is clearly questioning the use of circles, when you want to show the truth – and wearing a pie chart for a hat is only further evidence, that we have an infographic statement here:

Snippet from her lyrics:

Do you want the truth or something beautiful?
Just close your eyes and make believe
Do you want the truth or something beautiful?
I am happy to deceive you
Sacred lies in, telling tales
I can be who you wants me to be
But do u want me?

So true – I’m going to hear Paloma Faith sing this song, the next time I’m about to make a graphic with circles …
