Katy Perry Sucks addendum.
I’m pretty amazed at the decoding process, as well as the lack of reading comprehension displayed by some random readers.
Let me break it down into TL:DR for you:
1. Music is more than beat, meter, measure, and vibe kids. The words matter. The meaning behind those words matters. Fun music to dance to does not give it a pass. Music defines society. Check it. Our entire society was, is, and will be changed by the music of our varying generations. Feel free to evaluate the music of the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. I’m sure you can find entire theses built around this particular topic. Further, most of you kiddos just got here, like, on the planet, so calm down. You’re totally entitled to your opinion. But so am I.
2. I actually didn’t tell my daughter to stop listening to anything. I simply gave her a more robust and definable way for her to approach music, or indeed anything else she’ll encounter in her life. It’s called parenting. Also, if you’ve not parented a human before: your argument is invalid. Children have a small view of the world. If you want them to grow into people who can grow into adults who can think for themselves, you may consider exposing them to larger topics earlier (Like swear words OMG??) so that they might learn to use those tools effectively. In this way they may be able to live life to the fullest. Opening doors for your children is half the parents job. Do not think for a second that improved understanding of something somehow diminishes the topic. Knowing all about something is much more fulfilling than simply dancing to the beat.
3. Katy Perry totally sucks. Not just for the aforementioned reasons, but like for all the other corporate rock, plebian appeal bullshit pop music that is out there. She may be a singer, but she is not an artist.
It’s a sale. Feel free to rock out to it.
