English term or phrase: tit turnstile/put-down
The CD was alternately co-produced by George Drakoulias (The Black Crowes, Kula Shaker, Maria McKee), Mickey Petralia (Beck, Luscious Jackson), Clif Magness, Ron Aniello, and Jude himself. Everyone contributing to No One Is Really Beautiful -- Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ keyboardist Benmont Tench, Grant Lee Buffalo’s Paul Kimble, and Michael Ward and Rami Jaffe from the Wallflowers -- shared a common objective. "The idea was to serve the songs through the arrangements," says Jude. So whether it’s a raw-boned track about an aging "TIT TURNSTILE" starlet ("Prophet"), a tribute tune to his mother ("You Mama You"), a sardonic, hip-hoppy tour de force ("Brad & Suzy"), or an armor-piercing PUT-DOWN ("Rick James"), Jude’s razor-sharp points of view are heard loud and clear.

puerta giratoria de las tetas, insulto


Explanation:
I'm imagining that the turnstile is the revolving door of a casting agency or movie studio that has a constant stream of women flowing in and out. A "put-down" is an insult.

armor-piercing putdown = un dicho muy agudo y humillante


Explanation:
Tit turnstile: literally means torniquete en una teta, but as in the other term it should be translated freely. Posibility (among many!):
- Un viejo e hiriente puntillazo
