Oh I'd investigate her alright...
The one thing these music producers are good at is developing cults of personality, just like those bogus televangelists who build a facade that can
sway the masses. Media saturation doesn't help either as many young impressionable teens will conform to be accepted, hence the overwhelming
It's like all those young teen girls wearing Ramones shirts, they have no Idea who the Ramones are but since the cool kids wear them then so should
they, the same can apply to the Rachel haircut, some teens might not have seen Friends
but the cool kids have them so...
As for those lyrics, they are harmless and amateurish. Now read some lyric's From Cannibal Corpse's 'sentenced to burn' that may have predicted Donald
Trump and the state of the world when it was written 20 years ago, do you think this song would get any airtime?
'Follow the one, evil masked in pride
Charisma to lead, speeches laced with hate
Leading the dense, the bovine human herd
Inherently stupid, the fools deserve their fate'
'Watching the sheep, gathering to die
Followers in life, follow to the grave'
Do you think a song with lyrics like that would get airtime? It's clearly an allegory for political and religious fanaticism.
However there could be an underlying message, The early rock acts used allegories and double entendre's to mask the real meanings behind songs and
maybe Katy Perry is doing the same.
Or she hired a crap lyricist. I'm betting on the latter.
