Have you listened to popular music lately? Any Katy Perry or the likes? It's pretty catchy, right?
Well, that's the problem. It's super catchy. It's fun. Draws you in, makes you want to dance, makes you want to be carefree. And then tells you things on an album entitled Teenage Dream like, "Let's go all the way tonight, no regrets, just love" or brags that "I kissed a girl and I liked it." Or has a beautiful song like "Firework" with a music video that features two boys kissing. I could go on, but I don't really enjoy putting obscene things on my blog.
This is the music that is everywhere these days, everyone hears it, it's exploding in your ears. Katy Perry was even on Sesame Street in a princess dress, chasing Elmo around. If you were a kid, or a teenager, how hard would it be to stay virtuous with these messages being hurled at you? How would you escape them?
Katy Perry and Lady Gaga and so many more singers are targeting teenagers and TRYING to make them mess up.
It's disgusting. Leave my kids alone.
P.S. I just have to say that when Scotty McCreery was on American Idol, I couldn't believe people ever voted for his music. BUT the faces he made when Lady Gaga tried to talk dirty were priceless. Way to go, Scotty. Your music is awful, but you stand up for what you believe in. Now let's get some talented people with morals, and then we'll have a good thing.
