    There is a Katie Perry/rapper song popular now about he's an alien & captures her & pretty much rapes her.

    Lyrics go. "..what's next? Alien sex. I'll disrobe you, then I'll probe you. Since I captured you, I tell you what to do." Her lyrics tell how he drugs her and she has to obey him. How the hell did this get on the air? They outright say he is thinking about sex & she can't object. So ruffies & rape are OK as long as the raper isn't human?

    Maybe I'm just getting older & don't give modern music a free pass anymore.

    I also think the lyrics about 'a bar out on Mars where they drive space ships instead of cars' is stuid as hell. If they have restaurants there, they probably drive a form of car. Would people call Luke Skywalker's landspeeder a space ship? No. That is the equivalent of a car.


    A side note. My local station started censoring part of the rape lyrics (even they realize what it is). They blank out 'probe' So it goes "I'll disrobe you, then I'll ______ you." Which sort of makes it worse since now you can fill in the gap.

    Serially though, this is Katy Perry. She can pretty much sing about anything & it'll get played if its catchy. For example, I swear that a lot of the Kesha songs are symbolic to the fact that she can sing about whatever the heck comes to mind & that people will listen to & buy it.

    I have to admit that song caught me off guard while I was driving a while ago, because of those lyrics.

    Another station I listen to has the song, but they play the version where all those lyrics have been removed and it's just Katy Perry. The quality of the song goes up as a result in my opinon, although if my hard rock station is playing something better I go over there rather than listen to a love ballad to an alien.

    Songs today... don't get me started on Adell or whatever her face is.

    First, she was "rolling in the deep" - I guess her boat sank?

    Then, I heard one where she was trying to "set fire to the rain" - I guess on her planet it rains gasoline? Retarded.

    Well, the original album version of the song is much better as it doesn't have that moron Kanye and his alien rape nonsense in it. But, yeah, the version with him singing is rather terrible and many of the stations I listen to have started attempting to censor the alien sex part recently. Only time I hear it uncensored now is when I'm at work (work night shift) and we are listening to 93.3 in the backroom.

    This sounds almost as bad as that time I saw that Elvis kid shaking his hips on the television.

    She should've defended herself by shooting fireworks out of her boobs.

    For some reason....I am so glad I rarely ever....if never.....listen to the radio anymore. Sounds like there's too much garbage on.

    Are we talking about her E.T. song? Hasn't that song been out for months now?

    The rapper is Kanye...who is ruining a good song. As if anything Kanye does is good. I like the song itself, and as always hate Kanye. In fact, I think the song itself almost sounds like a more mature song, as compared to the rest of the song she does that sound more...playful in a sense. The video for it is rather interesting, however, the only version of the video(that I know of) is the one with the idiot in it.

    I just listened to the Kanye-less version on YouTube and the song is worlds better without him.

    I'm sure the older generation thought the same thing back in your day.

    What's the big deal here?

    Is it any different than Chuck Berry singing about his dick? Or Jerry Lee Lewis singing about sex in a whole lotta shackin?

    What about Madonna singing about being a virgin, Michael Jackson singing about not being a baby's daddy, or the Rolling Stones singing about sex and rape?

    Oh I know, it's different from 2 Live Crew being so horny and Sir-Mix-A-Lot loving big butts and puttin titties on the glass. That's it.

    On a side note, You'd think that a nice a bunch of people that love alien fiction could appreciate this song. But mainstream, grrr, pop music that isn't what I listened too when I was a youth, mentality dominates once again.
