    Avril Lavigne’s “Wish You Were Here” Video

    I recently saw Avril Lavigne’s video “Wish You Were Here.” I have to say, I was quite shocked when comparing her contemporary lyrics and music to those back in the days of “Sk8er Boi” and “Keep Holding On.”

    Lavigne is talented, but the music industry is continuously lowering its standards regarding language and messages. It seems there is no concern for the audience except to shock it and profit at the youth’s expense.

    Check out the video for “Wish You Were Here.” Warning: This song contains several curse words!

    It is sad that artists like Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z, and Pitbull are popular on the charts. Record executives are not concerned with the messages songs are sending, and the consumers are tolerating it! The second we stop supporting these artists with negative messages is when things will change.

    With the new infiltration of positive Christian music on the rise and the lowering of secular sales, the music industry is bound to change. If sales go down because we as consumers don’t want to buy poor music, guess what? The music business will notice.

    I am not saying don’t support Lavigne, but pray for the industry and for the people who have the power to change music. In addition, if there ARE musicians or bands that offend you or that send a message you don’t appreciate, don’t support them.

    I believe that with faith, perseverance and a rising up in the next generation with the right mindset, we can impact our world and the people around us.

    Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see (Hebrews 11:1).

    PI girls, what do you think of the lyrics and the music video?
