What songs do you love that would be problematic if released today?


Recommended Posts

It’s clear that things are pretty divided and tense these days when it comes to opinions. Friends ditch friends when they find out they’re in the opposite political party. There’s a new “#___IsCancelledParty” trending on Twitter everyday. Every opinion is now relevant, whether it’s backed up by facts or “alternative facts.”

Today, for some odd reason, Ur So Gay by Katy Perry popped in my head out of nowhere after forgetting about it for a few years. It’s a 2007 song about a man that is so metrosexual and feminine that Katy declares he’s “so gay, but he doesn’t even like boys!” It got me thinking that if the song were released today, only 13 years later, it would probably cause a huge uproar.

I mean, people got mad at Billie Eilish just last year because she wrote a song about wishing a guy that didn’t like her was gay so that she could feel less insecure. Somehow, that was controversial. And then more controversy ensued because that was controversial. Sigh, is anyone else as tired as I am?

Anyways, Katy’s song, Ur So Gay, has me wondering. What are some songs that you love, or that were popular once, that would be “cancelled” if they were released today?0F846A55-9BA5-42FC-96AB-D01CD9C05156.jpeg

...Baby One More Time :imacat:

If it was deemed problematic then for it's lyric "hit me baby one more time" which was interpreted as violent, just think of how the ultra sensitive Gen Z fans and "woke" people will react to that line now:mattafact:

I mean, this week the internet wanted to cancel Lana Del Rey for singing about loving men who hurt her. :tiffdrink:

Weren't they trying to "cancel" her for "calling out other girls" (because people didn't get her message) ?
