Why, Lily??

Monday, May 12, 2014

I have to talk about something that, first got my attention and second, it disturbed me quite some...
The other day, while driving back home from work, I was listening to the radio. Obviously, nothing interesting, at least to my musical taste, therefore, it was just to keep me company.
Pop songs, one after other and then the well known Lily Allen brakes in.
Never paid much attention to her, but  when you're in a traffic jam, you start listening to something that in most cases it'd just be "background noise". That was the case with the newest single from Lily Allen, called Hard Out Here.

Now the question is: Why?!
Well, please read the lyrics below:

I suppose I should tell you what this bitch is thinking
You'll find me in the studio and not in the kitchen
I won't be bragging 'bout my cars or talking 'bout my chains
Don't need to shake my ass for you 'cause I've got a brain

If I told you 'bout my sex life, you'd call me a slut
When boys be talking about their bitches, no one's making a fuss
There's a glass ceiling to break, uh-huh, there's money to make
And now it's time to speed it up 'cause I can't move at this pace

[Bridge:]
Sometimes it's hard to find the words to say
I'll go ahead and say them anyway
Forget your balls and grow a pair of tits

[Chorus:]
It's hard, it's hard, it's hard out here for a bitch
It's hard for a bitch (for a bitch) for a bitch,
It's hard
It's hard out here for a bitch
It's hard for a bitch (for a bitch) for a bitch,
It's hard
It's hard out here

If you're not a size six, then you're not good looking
Well, you better be rich, or be real good at cooking
You should probably lose some weight 'cause we can't see your bones
You should probably fix your face or you'll end up on your own

Don't you want to have somebody who objectifies you?
Have you thought about your butt? Who's gonna tear it in two?
We've never had it so good, uh-huh, we're out of the woods
And if you can't detect the sarcasm, you've misunderstood

[Bridge]
[Chorus]

A bitch, a bitch, a bitch, bitch, bitch [4x]

Inequality promises that it's here to stay
Always trust the injustice 'cause it's not going away
Inequality promises that it's here to stay
Always trust the injustice 'cause it's not going away

[Bridge]
[Chorus 2x]
Bitch

So, I think it's clear right?!
Is this the point that the music industry got to???
I can imagine how many teens listen to this.....

Lily, this is NOT the way to do it, girl!
