What Pop Music Teaches Us About Rain

Rihanna needs an umbrella-ella-ella in rain

Rihanna needs an umbrella-ella-ella in rain

Pop stars are sometimes not the most ruthlessly literal people in the world. In fact, it could be argued they spend most of their lives in a world that has little to do with reality.

So it should come as no surprise then, that these same pop stars have been attributing various properties to rain that, quite frankly, aren’t true. Professor Sarah Honeydew isn’t a fan of such abuses so she catalogued a number of these infractions for the AOL Music Blog.

You can read about Purple Rain, Black Rain, Fire Rain, November Rain, Dishonest Rain… you name it, there’s a type of rain for it… by clicking here.

How Kidz Bop De-Pervertizes Katy Perry Lyrics

Kidz Bop 21 is free of ANYTHING that would scare your kids

Kidz Bop 21 is free of ANYTHING that would scare your kids

There’s a thing called the Kidz Bop series and it’s a really big deal. Basically, producers get a bunch of next generation Disney kids together and they sing reworked versions of popular Top 40 radio hits with all the sex, drugs, violence, innuendo, negativity, religion, and any other potentially controversial language smoothed out of the songs and usually replaced with the words “dance” or “dance, yeah!”

Sarah spent an unnaturally long time listening to the kidz-ified versions of songs by LMFAO, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Maroon 5, Rihanna and a pile of others on the recently released Kidz Bop 21. She then compared the kidz versions to the originals to find out how youth-friendly they’ve been made.
