Rihanna and Chris Brown performed a duet together.
Check out some of the lyrics of this track:
Girl I wanna fuck you right now. Been a long time, I been missing your body. Let me- in let me turn the lights down, when I go down, it’s a private party. It’s not even her birthday, but I wanna lick the icing off. Give it to her in the worst way, can’t wait to burn her candles out.”
“Remember how you did it, remember how you did it, if you still want to kiss it, come come and get it”
Am I the only one disturbed by this?
I know abusers can sometimes be rehabilitated - so this post isn’t about that. This is about those lyrics, which are undoubtedly sending a multitude of messages to people.
I recieved a lot of replies which sang the tune of “live your [expletive] life,” or “it’s just a song!”
I find it incredibly sad that nobody seems to care about the greater implications of this song. The lyrics make light of a episode of abuse we know took place. And the fact that people can’t get this, is incredibly disturbing and speaks volumes about how sparingly people glance and consider the topic of abuse and it’s aftershocks. I am amazed that people are implying that I shouldn’t care, and that it shouldn’t bother me.
Songs are fun, movies are fun, film, theatre, dance and art are amazing. These are things I consider my passion. And when I write my short stories, my poetry, my songs, and when I dance I think about the message I’m trying to send people. I think about the things I’ve experienced in my life, and I think about others life experiences too. We are all a part of the human experience. If you can’t see anything outside of yourself, what the hell are you doing here anyway?
