People have talked about relationship abuse, but there’s one thing that is continually missing in the conversation.  I think there are so many music artists out there using misogyny in the industry.  I just wanted to do something to bring it to the surface.  Every time I hear lyrics like “Hey Bitch! Wait till you see my dick”  I am forced to ask myself.. “Do women listen to this?”  I’m not a censorship supporter nor am I saying that it shouldn’t be out there for adults to “enjoy” if they so wish, but it does contribute to a problem.   Kids  are listening to that shyt.  Impressionable minds are prevalent in America.

.

We, no doubt, have a violent culture.. I think we can do better.  Hip hop, Rap and RnB don’t need to continue to subscribe to the same archetypes of masculinity.  Easy to say coming from me.. but it’s none the less true.

.

Personally I felt that the tone of “I’ve TOLD Rihanna countless times .. that I’m truly truly sorry” was very telling.  It’s not mine to forgive, and I do believe in redemption, but that must come with time and trust.  With this song, I wanted to make the point that relationship abuse is a real problem, especially in young people. And the scars don’t heal with a simple (rehearsed) apology.

.

Never before has a generation looked so vigorously for role models in pop culture, and never before has pop culture been so saturated with sex and violence.  We can make a difference as consumers, as voters and as friends..  If you see abuse, report it.  If you or someone you know are being abused, there is help.. and you can start here: www.stoprelationshipabuse.org
