Music: Worse Than Ever

What’s going on with music? Is it just me or does it all suck? Aside from maybe one song, I think Taylor Swift is corny, and that song is borderline corny too. However, I do give her credit for writing some of her own songs, though she’s definitely not writing all of it. Nicki Minaj? Her lyrics are pathetic.A fifth grader could write them, apart from the overtly sexual lyrics. But she’s all over the radio. Miley Cyrus? Is she a joke? Because I can’t stop laughing at how ridiculous she looks…

Speaking of Nicki Minaj, she recently made an appearance on SNL. The Weeknd performed and she came out as a surprise guest. At the risk of sounding older than dirt, her lyrics were particularly terrible that night. She flat out talks about popping pills and doing lines of coke. I get the fact that she wants to be over the top, but there are hundreds of 12 year-olds listening to her music and taking it to heart. I never thought I would be saying this, but take any child psychology class where doctors have reported on studies of what affects the brain and I think most people would agree with me. I know the counter argument to this is that parents are suppose to be responsible for what their child’s listening to, but unless your kid is living under a rock, their probably going to hear it anyway, if not on the radio, then from some kid at school. I’m all for artist’s expression but instead of outright saying “pills” and “coke” can’t she (or whoever writes those lyrics) be a little bit creative and use words that allude to that, instead of directly saying it? There’s nothing cute about doing coke and popping pills.
