Every time I see a little kid singing a pop radio hit on the internet, I have to stop and ask myself… should that child really know that song?
Then today across my Facebook feed came this cute, little girl, equipped with a sidekick, play microphones, and tiaras, singing the pop hit Super Bass by Nicki Minaj. A song all about looking for men to hook up with, even if they are drug dealers. Huh? FOR REAL!
Now of course I know these kids aren’t going to know what most of the lyrics mean. I mean… I hope they don’t know what a drug dealer is, or even what the phrase panties coming off means.
Sure I am all for music in kids lives… music education, as well as a great sense of music is awesome. And this little girl has a hell of a voice on her. But couldn’t Mom have picked a slightly more appropriate song?
Just a couple of the concerning lyrics include:
And he ill, he real, he might got a deal
He pop bottles and he got the right kind of build
He cold, he dope, he might sell coke
He always in the air, but he never fly coach
And I think I like him better with the fitted cap on
He ain’t even gotta try to put the mac on
He just gotta give me that look, when he give me that look
Then the panties comin’ off, off, uh
I guess it comes down to different folks for different strokes, but that little girl looks to be the same age as my oldest toddler, who is almost four, and out of the toddler phase… but I would keel over and have a heart attack if he ever said half the words in that song, let alone memorized it. For sure not something I would broadcast across the internet! The internet is forever!
On Facebook, Christine chimed in and said:
aww how sad…she actually has a really good voice but how trashy of her parents to let her sing this adult song and post it online.
