“Why is it that more and more women in the media are often becoming and embracing the idiot-piece-of-meat role? I’m sorry, but I find that unacceptable. If that’s what a particular artist wants for their life, fine, but don’t influence young impressionable minds.””
Why is it that more and more women in the media are often becoming and embracing the idiot-piece-of-meat role?
I’m sorry, but I find that unacceptable. If that’s what a particular artist wants for their life, fine, but don’t influence young impressionable minds.
As I was in the store the other day, Katy Perry’s I Kissed a Girl was pumping through the speakers.
If that wasn’t bad enough, there was a mother in front of me with her young daughter singing along.
I mean my gosh, first if I had a kid, I wouldn’t let them listen to crap like that, and second I wouldn’t encourage it by singing along.
What is this song teaching girls? That kissing another girl just for experimental gain is a good thing to do?
Yeah, that’s a nice philosophy…not.
Whatever happened to good music that was more than just about girl on girl action?
Oh, wait, there are other songs out there that are about more than that… they’re about showing people that being famous is the best way to go.
The Pussy Cat Dolls song When I Grow Up is an example of this.
With lyrics like When I grow up I want to be famous, I want to be a star, I want to be in movies, shows shallow fame is the ideal. That’s a sad thing.
Songs like these are glamorizing a life style that these kids aren’t going to be able to achieve, but they idolize these women and their shallow lives.
When kids are young they should have hopes and dreams for their futures like being firefighters, doctors and teachers. Not being famous.
Now, I’m not suggesting that all songs should turn into School House Rock songs. Quite frankly, no kid wants to hear about conjunctions and their functions. Trust me, been there, done that.
All I’m saying, is the music industry needs to watch the message they’re pushing upon the younger generations.
These kids are future leaders and quite frankly I don’t feel like being led by a bunch of Paris Hilton wannabes when I’m 60.
