beauty and a beat cd single

Families can talk about the musical chemistry between Bieber and Minaj -- two of the cleanest and raunchiest musicians around, respectively. Does it work? Why would Bieber choose to collaborate with a notoriously risque rapper like Minaj? What would Minaj stand to gain from matching up with a squeaky-clean teen heartthrob like Bieber?

Don’t Miss the Subtleties!

"Beauty and a Beat" (CD Single) as reviewed by Stephanie Bruzzese is lacking in thoroughness on a few points. She indicates that substance use is not mentioned, but a lyric says, "hit 'em with the ether," a clear reference to the recreational drug use of diethyl ether. She also notes only a mildly suggestive lyric under sexual content, but doesn't mention the explicit reference to grinding (a dance move); "Buns out, weiner." As this song is just now reaching its height of play on the radio, it may be beneficial for parents if the review includes some of these details.

Nicki Minaj is again trying to corrupt America as she talks about grinding with a boy 10 years younger then her, and said boy, obviously filthily seduced by her, sings about feeling her "body rock." Not appropriate for children.
