A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

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 & Representations

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.


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."


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

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

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

What 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.

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 hook... Continue reading

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?

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.

Talk to your kids 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?
