“That seems sort of harmless but then it kind of gets a little darker and sort of accuses these young pop artists of being part of this cycle where girls read magazines, feel terrible about themselves ‘cause its says “you should be skinnier, you should be prettier”. They feel terrible, and then these pop stars tell them that they’re perfect and that they’re beautiful and they buy the songs and then the popstar’s on the cover of the magazine so they buy a magazine again and it’s sort of this vicious cycle and I sort of implied he’s working for Satan or whatever.”
I’ve been on both sides of this conversation
Making a separate post of this because IT’S NOT TRUE, NOOO, STAWP SPREADING ITTTT.
Don’t mean to hijack a post to say NO U R WRONG but I keep seeing this post and that’s not what the song is about.
It’s calling the MEN the dogs because they’re running around panting and woofing at women.
“I heard a woman shout out—who let the dogs out?”
Then we see women as dog-catchers.
And a dog jumping up trying to get on a lady.
“Get back cruffy, back scruffy,
Get back you flea infested mongrel”
Is meant to be a woman telling a dog (a guy) to leave her alone.
Then there’s “to any girls callin’ them canine”. Clearly the women are calling the men dogs here.
“Say, a doggy is nuttin’ if he don’ have a bone” HE. Doggy is nuttin’ if HE.
“Well, if I am a dog, the party is on
I gotta get my groove ‘cause my mind done gone”
Dude’s acknowledging that he may be one of those guys at parties/clubs.
“Me and my white short shorts
And I can’t see color, any color will do
I’ll stick on you, that’s why they call me ‘Pit bull’”
He can’t see color, HE is the dog.
So don’t be crushed. It’s a song about guys acknowledging that other guys can be brazen and annoying when hitting on women when they just wanna have a ball at the club and dance.
OH THANK GOODNESS
did the baha-men really make a hit song addressing the harassment of women?
well check y’all out
This is not ok.
Tears are streaming down my face. Oh god.
Well fuck you too
THIS STILL HURTS
