  • I don't know the song but if the question is should parents teach kids that music is just music and not a refection of real life... yeah I agree. While not all music is age appropriate we can't shelter them from it so it's best we teach them right from wrong and that songs are in fact just songs. Not always the best place to get advice or consider when making choices.

  • i'd tell her if thats the kind of attitude she's gonna give she can be grounded from her radio and FB til she can see that the whole song is disrespectful.. and that katy perry started her whole career on the basis that she was direspecting her (very religious) parents when her single, i kissed a girl, came out..

  • yeah your DD's friend is a little dim. none of Katy Perry's songs are "just songs"...they are they way they are for a reason, to get a reaction, & most of her songs use sex to sell them. while imo your DD is plenty old enough to listen to them & not be "corrupted" your other kids arent. i dont see how singing it is teaching disrespect for adults, but its just way too sexual for younger kids' ears.

    your DD's friend isnt a parent (i assume) so what does she know about parents not doing their jobs anyway!
