This weeks video is not what you may think. While the title may put you in shock, or peak your curiosity, it's just one of those songs you'll have to listen to for yourself, to find the actual meaning.
This song is entitled "Sex Yeah", by Marina and the Diamonds.
Upon seeing the track listing for Marina and the Diamonds newest album "Electra Heart", this title jumped out! Automatically my mind jumped to nearly what every other pop star out there is singing about today. I mean we've got pop stars acting like "naughty little girls", who like it hard, and love that bondage. By all means, express yourself, but this is not what I would have expected from Marina. Fortunately when I finally got the chance to listen to this song, and to it's lyrics, I was refreshed. My favorite line in the song?
"Tired image of a star, acting naughtier than we really are."
We've all heard the stories of those super hot girls who walk into a nightclub looking like a prostitute, and go home with random men. What most never expect is that upon bringing the girl home, she turns out to be a prude! Or, just isn't good in the sack because something is holding her back. Maybe it's just me that these stories get back to, but it definitely happens. We as women, often times think we need to be these life-size blow-up dolls to please men. To never say "no", in order to make a guy like us. When in reality, a lot of the women who do this just have low self-esteem, and are trying to find a way to make someone love them.
With many of today's pop stars, it's almost the same thing. They wear barely anything, and will do anything, just to make someone love them. To make fans notice them. To get more money. Whatever the reason may be, to me these stars just look like painted up plastic fantasies created by a group of people telling them what to do. People who want them to just sell sex and get them more money, because that's all that matters, right? (note the sarcasm there)
So this is what I love about Marina. From her last album to now, she's made various comments about this issue. If there was anyone who could really make money off of their....endowments...it'd be Marina, trust me. I have yet to see her flaunting it all about to make a buck. So once again, kudos to you Marina.
Enjoy the video, and Au Revoir!
