There’s been some controversy over multi-award winning country group Little Big Town‘s hit ‘Girl Crush‘. Apparently country music radio stations have been finding the lyrics too inappropriate for listeners and have been pulling it from the airwaves.
The supposed ‘racy’ lyrics are–
“I want to taste her lips, yeah ’cause they taste like you/ I want to drown myself in a bottle of her perfume/ I want her long blond hair, I want her magic touch/ Yeah ’cause maybe then, you’d want me just as much/ I got a girl crush.“
Fans (and former fans) of the band have been saying the lyrics ‘promote a gay agenda‘, according to radio host Alana Lynn of Boise, Idaho.
Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Town explains that the song isn’t even about a woman loving another woman.
“This woman is just looking at the woman her man left her for and wondering, ‘What does she have that I don’t have? What am I missing? What is it that she’s giving you that I can’t give you?’“
“Country music was built on songs about heartache and jealousy,”” Little Big Town’s Phillip Sweet added.
Other country musicians have started coming to Little Big Town’s defense as well. Country singer-songwriter Charlie Worsham expressed his view on Twitter recently, saying–
‘Girl Crush‘ was an instant hit, which makes the controversy sort of ironic. It opened at #4 on the country charts and was downloaded by millions its first day on iTunes. It certainly raises the issue of how far modern country music has progressed, and maybe what country music is today.
