I’m for sure old and uncool…even as ‘meh’ as the composition is…that a 14yo is rapping about sex. Is it time for us to wake up yet? We want our future entertainment, starting as oversexed, older than their age (in a sense) teens singin bout gold bitches n bling? I know we’ve done young entertainers forever. I know sex happens (rape, statutory if nothing else) at that age and younger…But can anyone look their parent’s or kid’s in the eye and express pride in ourselves? Before we’re overwhelmed, it’s time to pull our fat from the fire, or say forget it, and dive in to the growing disconnect and madness. Harsh, strong, plain uncool of me, w/e. But I don’t wanna see 11yo’s next in gold, with gold caps, ‘strapped’ and their ‘honey’s’ hanging on their arms on a cd cover.
Maybe, I’d simply like ‘our’ kids to be kids, until they’re prepared to not be kids. Cuz we’ve all made the world tough enough. Whether a passing whimsy or obsession, we’ve wished life could be simpler, freer, like our kids deserve to have. We should work for their sake, since we seem uninterested in doing it for ourselves.
