So living overseas means I'm not as exposed to pop culture that's hot right now in the States, but through iTunes and various other sources, I can get the drift of what's going on.
I'm about to the point where I'm going to start boycotting Top 40 radio. I hear a song sometimes and have to wonder two things:
1. What in the heck is the person who wrote this song thinking?
2. Can anybody get a record contract these days?
I have two songs to prove my point.
We R Who We R by Kesha
Have you heard the lyrics for this? Here are a few of my favorite snippets.
"We’re dancing like we’re dumb
Our bodies go numb
We’ll be forever young
You know we’re superstars
We are who we are!"
"I’m just talkin’ truth
I’m telling you ’bout the s— we do
We’re sellin’ our clothes, sleepin’ in cars
Dressin’ it down, hittin’ on dudes (HARD!)"
Um...selling' our clothes, sleepin' in cars? Sounds like a great life...
"I Whip My Hair" Willow Smith
Although Will Smith's daughter is adorable, I don't want to hear on constant repeat the words, "I Whip my Hair back and forth"
