Pop Music is Like a Granola Bar

help-make-pop-music-good

Alrighty, this post was inspired by a blog article that popped up on my Facebook newsfeed about Meghan Trainor.

Meghan Trainor has gained a substancial amount of fame, due to her hit song, “All About That Bass”, which embraces her curvaceous figure. Some feminists hate the song, because some of the lyrics include phrases such as, “she says boys like a little more booty to hold at night”, and stating looking a certain way, because boys approve is deemed “anti-feminist”, but whatever some people bitch for the purpose of bitching. I see nothing wrong with the song, because it’s a fucking pop song, and the whole purpose of pop music is to be light hearted, fun and catchy. Trainer is 20, and she probably wrote this song when she was like 18 or 19; this isn’t an experienced 40 year old WOMAN we are talking about, she’s VERY young. I think people need to get off her case, because the girl is talented, adorable and probably did not think her lyrics would offend so many people. These days you cant look at someone without them getting offended.

Which leads me to my next point, pop music is just like a granola bar. It’s a quick fix, its easy to digest, but it doesn’t last very long. It is not good, or bad for you, and it doesn’t really have any value.

Have you ever read any pop lyrics?

Here’s the chorus to Taylor Swift’s new song:

You got that James Dean day dream look in your eye
And I got that red lip classic thing that you like
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time.
Cause we never go out of style
We never go out of style

Music snobs know Swift isn’t a great artist, but guess what? She doesn’t have to be she’s a pop star, she writes catchy lyrics that are aimed at tweens, and teens, and they’re not sitting there analyzing the fucking lyrics. She’s sold millions of records, the girl is doing something right.

Here are some from Katy Perry’s song Roar

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion

They’re pretty fucking ridiculous, but Perry’s job isn’t to write lyrics like John Lennon, because she’s a pop star, she just needs to wear cute costumes, be bubbly, and write lyrics that are simple, and easy to remember. The primary demographic that listens to her spends their days taking selfies and recording themselves doing the Kylie Jenner challenge, they don’t need anything too deep, trust me.

In the end, I fucking hate it when bloggers, feminists, and other people take pop lyrics too seriously. Thoughts?

I Am OVER Facebook

Facebook has become a place for people to snoop, and find out pointless information about one another. It has become a network infested with lies and false personas. It is a way for people to find out what happened to an old fling, or their secret high school crush. It is a place where relationships begin and die. It is a social network that I am sick of. Facebook invades my privacy; it links up people from my phone-book and places them on my “people you may know” list at the top of the screen. There are plenty of people in my phone-book I do not want to be friends with, because I like to keep it friends and family only. I do not want to grant certain people access into my personal life.

I am also over people posting political memes which end up in pointless heated debates. I have seen grown ass people bicker about how horrible Obama is and how he is destroying this country. I simply unfollow the post. In fact, I have become accustomed to unfollowing TONS of people, because they pop up in my news feed too often, or post too many selfies, or annoy me.

I love Twitter, because it allows you interact with people you normally would not. I also believe people appear wittier and do not constantly post obnoxious comments, or whine about their relationships. This goes for the people I follow. Of course there are Twitter idiots, trolls and people tweeting dumb shit. I do not follow them.

Why don’t you just un-friend the annoying folks from Facebook? Because I do not want to make anyone mad and some happen to be friends :/.
