Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear. Oh dear. Some country music radio stations are pulling the track "Girl Crush" by Grammy-winning country group Little Big Town because angry listeners are wrongfully claiming the song "promotes a gay agenda."
They think the song's about lesbians because of the following lyrics, "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 blonde hair / I want her magic touch / Yeah, ‘cause maybe then / You’d want me just as much / I got a girl crush."
Except it's not about a girl who's attracted to another girl at all, it's actually about a woman's jealously of her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend.
But people didn't let facts stand in the way of their outrage and the Washington Post reports that Alana Lynn, who's a co-host on country music station 104.3 FM in Boise, Idaho, got lots of phone calls from outraged listeners who were unhappy the station was playing a song about gay people.
Such is the controversy that the band recently made a video (below) where singer Karen Fairchild explains what the song's about.
Regarding the whole ridiculous furore surrounding the song she told the Washington Post, "That’s just shocking to me, the close-mindedness of that, when that’s just not what the song was about. But what if it were? It’s just a greater issue of listening to a song for what it is."
I guess the only advice we can give if this still offends you is never listen to country music again, don't listen to to the radio and definitely DO go to church to pray forgiveness for these evil music makers.
