Have you seen the newest Katy Perry video yet? Firework? I’m actually not big on music video’s here in Crazy Town…far too racy nowadays, & not what I want my young kids being exposed to. Hard enough to raise 3 daughters in a society that wants to determine their worth based on their sexuality, simply by virtue of having been born with vaginas…I’ll be damned if I’m going to condone this mentality by having them think I approve of the image put forth by the singers behind their favourite songs. They’d actually be hard pressed to identify most of them by sight, outside of Justin Bieber or Hannah Montana, & I’m okay with that. The one concert I’ve taken them to? Avril Lavigne…kickin’ it on stage in her jeans & her high tops. ‘Cause she rocks. I did, however, catch this particular Katy Perry video myself, when it first came out, flipping around to find tunes for me & my mop. My immediate reaction was OMG, WTF??? I could have sworn, in the opening shots of her on the balcony, her boobs were shooting off fireworks…kinda like the Fem-Bots in Austin Powers, literally armed to the t*ts. As the video progressed, I realized that they were actually supposed to be shooting these fireworks from their hearts. What Ever…point being, it just looked ridiculously silly & inappropriate. When I came across today’s pick, a Key Of Awesome parody of said Firework video, I knew immediately that it’s off-colour theme was likely inspired by those same impressions I had of the original. Which makes it even funnier, despite the off-colour theme…
Happy Friday, & yes my dear Empress, Mr. Linky is back to slut around the blogosphere with us!
