    Not a bad effort by someone so young, but I can't help but to think that a 45 year old man probably wrote that song.

    We shouldn't teach our children that songs like this are good. When this generation comes into adulthood, we're gonna have songs with lyrics like:

    I got my bread, a slice without a hole,
    Put it in the toaster, 'cause toastin' is my goal,
    It was really hot, when I took it out,
    Burnt my fingers, man what's that about?
    Put some butter on, but not too much,
    You know I gotta watch, my trans-fats and such,
    I thought I'd have some juice, just to mix it up,
    But it was sour, not fit for my cup.

    Breakfast!
    You know I'm havin'
    Breakfast!
    Most important meal is
    Breakfast!
    You can try but you can't stop the
    BREAKFAST!!


    Do y'all really want that to be our future? DO YOU?

    the worst thing to come out of this is the endless stream of Facebook posts reading "It's Friday, Friday lol, get it, like in that song" that occurs every single friday

    I wonder how many fridays that will last

    Every generation produces more music than the generation before it. The complexity of the music produced also increases by each successive generation. Your claim is silly, but there might be some truth to it. For just as complexity entails the profound, so to does it include the mediocre. Luckily, we all have our musical tastes, so we never have to settle for mediocrity. Would you presume that we would, in the future, fill our playlists with something we abhor? Of course we wouldn't.

    Let me get this straight: You're extrapolating her parents' entire moral fiber from a mindless low-quality bubble-gum song and then personalizing it enough to get pissy about it on the Internetz to people you don't even know?

    (Just askin'... cuz it looks like that is what you're doing.)

    I'd be more worried about all the PG-13 movies kids go to, featuring implied sex and hot steamy make-out sessions.

    @Gloriana: You should listen to popular music from the 60's and early 70's, and then see if lyrical content has actually become more mediocre. (Don't MAKE me start researching and posting it in here.)

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    When does she tell your niece that she should go to parties with 16 year-olds? I think you are interpreting the lyrics very liberally, perhaps missing the message within the words.

    Guess this kinda makes you a e-dildo then.

    Seriously technology can make the world better or worse. Change is inevitable. Unfortunately substantial positive change typically doesn’t happen without some underlying scrutiny.

Many adults can't even deal with that.

    I actually think that sort of thing is more indicative of potential success than actually having all the kinks worked out; there's a lot of talented people who never get anywhere due to a lack of vision and ability to self-promote. My life might have been very different now if I had had that degree of moxie at that age.

    So... you go, girl!
    (And I'll just stop listening to the radio, in the meanwhile.)
    Exactly! Look at how poised she is with Leno, knowing literal millions are watching nvm the hundreds or thousands in the studio audience. Impressive!

    That song's perfect as the theme song for Twitter! And yes, I avoid Twitter like the plague.

    I'm not nearly as upset as I probably sound, just expressing mild annoyance.
