I have noticed lately a lot of pop songs are messed up and i can't believe how popular they are when you listen to what the lyrics are saying. I first noticed this with Chase and Status' song Let You Go. This song give me the creeps as it sounded exactly what a wife beater would say to his wife (or husband beater to her husband) lyrics here and this was a very successful song!
today i was on my way to the hospital and was listening to the radio and they played katy perry's new song ET, which included these lovely lyrics sang by Kanye West
Tell me what's next, alien sex I'ma disrobe you, than I'mma probe you See I abducted you, so I tell ya what to do I tell ya what to do, what to do, what to do
This song was being played at 9.20am!! What kind of message is this sending to young girls and boys?? You would think Katy Perry who is popular amongst children would not have such horrible lyrics in her song.
Am i being sensitive or has anyone else noticed lyrics like these?
That KAty Perry one is awful, it made my blood boil. THat and Rhianna's S and M i really despair. I never thought of myself as a feminist but I hate the way that women have become nothing but sex objects over the past few years. We seem to be going backwards, and even worse complicit in it.
