Think of the Children (and I don’t even have kids)

23 Apr

I try not to hold celebrities up to a higher standard than I do other people. Still, I think there should be some awareness of how their product affects their audience.

The chorus of Katy Perry’s latest hit includes the lines “wanna be a victim/ ready for abduction”. How is this a good message for kids? Who wants their preteen (girl or boy) singing along to this as they walk down the street?

Not every song can be “Firework”; I get that, but when your audience is mostly kids, would it hurt much to think about the message you’re sending?
