"Blah Blah Blah" (single featuring 3OH!3)

Song about casual hookups is iffy for teens.

What parents need to know

Positive messages

The message about hooking up in the back of a car or a club is too mature for young kids.

Positive role models

Though she hasn't demonstrated questionable behavior in her real life, Ke$ha can hardly be considered a role model by singing songs about casual hook-ups.

Violence
Not applicable
Sex

Several allusions to sex; for example, "Boy come on get your rocks off / Come put a little love in my glove box / I wanna dance with no pants on."

Language

Uses the words "bitch" and "d--k."

Consumerism
Not applicable
Drinking, drugs, & smoking

Talks about drinking whiskey: "Meet me in the back with the Jack and the jukebox."

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the single "BLAH BLAH BLAH" revolves around casual sex. On top of several references to hooking up, the song includes mild profanity ("bitch" and "d--k") and discussion of drinking whiskey.

What's the story?

Riding the wave of success generated by her debut album, Animal, pop singing sensation Ke$ha has released another single from the record titled "Blah Blah Blah." Getting a vocal hand from krunk kings 3OH!3, Ke$ha spends the duration of this track talking about how a guy can't do a lot of blabbing (hence the "blah blah blah") if he wants to hook up with her. While this initially seems like a good commentary on people who talk a lot of smack, it's actually more about cutting out the small talk and getting to the casual sex. With swearing, references to drinking, and plenty of sexual references, "Blah Blah Blah" is definitely not for young kids.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

Ke$ha's signature sound -- heavy synth beats backing a vocal style that's part talk, part singing -- is generally a love-it or hate-it proposition. Those on the former side of the fence will fall head over heels for "Blah Blah Blah," which combines Ke$ha's style with that of her male alter egos, the krunk duo 3OH!3. Though the high pitch and auto tune can be slightly grating sometimes, the overall result is an eminently danceable tune that will receive plenty of spins in the clubs.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the risks involved in casual hookups. What might happen if you're out with friends, decide to take a drink, and end up having a casual sexual encounter?

  • How can you resist the temptation to be reckless when you're having a good time at a party or club?

Mature adult behaviors are in full force

This song should have a parental advisory. This is all about casual sexual activity, and drinking excessively. Lyrics include " Let me see where your d**k's at"; "Meet me in the back with the jack and the jukebox"; "Wanna dance with no pants on/ be naked, but your wasted". Theres a fair bit of profanity too. Inappropriate even for Ke$ha. Teens only ( 14 or 15).

Too Sexual for Kids

This song is super catchy and I've danced to it several times. However, it is definitely not for kids. Like most Ke$ha songs, it involves drinking and hooking up. In the song the two parties don't want to get to know each other and just want to sleep together. Sex: The song is about hookups so there are lots of sexual references: "Just turn around, boy, let me hit that", "Just show me where your d-ck's at", "Think you'll be getting this?/Nah, nah, nah/not in the back of my car", "Come put a little love in my glove box/wanna dance with no pants on", "I'm gonna be naked". Drinking: Some references ("You're wasted"). Language: "D-ck" is used twice, and b-tch is used once ("Don't be a little b-tch with your chitchat").
