Singers and Cussing: Completely Lame!
Written by Nicole | March 24, 2011
What’s up with singers and cussing? I heard Avril Lavigne’s song on the radio yesterday called “what the hell” and it was terrible. Add to that Ceelo’s song F you, and Pink’s F*in perfect. Cussing isn’t cool. It doesn’t sound classy, and cheapens the message they’re trying to get across. Another artist: Green Day and the name of their new album : Awesome as ****. You can fill in the rest. It’s so disgusting and it’s polluting our minds with garbage that goes against what’s good.
We need to stand up and speak out against this type of behavior and not reward them by buying their songs. These singers hurt their own reputation when they do this, along with spreading the harmful message that it’s okay to sing the F word over and over knowing people who are fans will copy this type of behavior. All the best artists in history didn’t need to say cuss words in their songs because they were above that. Just look at Frank Sinatra, Elvis, or Michael Jackson. These singers feel like they need to ‘one up’ each other by getting more and more outrageous in order to sell albums and shock people. Never before in history has cussing in songs been accepted, and even thought of as cool. What do you think about this?
