Country's Hall of Shame
I'd like to check you for a sense of humor. If you don't think this song is funny There's something wrong with you. Get a sense if humor then listen to this song again.
Great article! Seriously messed up song. I'd like to check the radio for real country music but it hasn't happened yet.
If you really are a 'guy' and not 'metro man' - it's true. Some guy 'cops a feel' when my girl walks by and he's going to pick himself up off the ground. And yes, there's a gun in my truck (legally).
Kayla, the fact that you can’t even see the comedy and Innocence of that song, really dis-credits you as a writer. Either you are just trying to create drama so you sound like an interesting writer, or you really are just pathetic, just reaching for something to write about. Either way, as a journalist you should be able to see that he was just making a fun song, poking fun at things some guys do and how they think. My question is, as a journalist aren’t you able to see the same attributes in people that he is singing about, assuming as a journalist you are a keen observer of human nature. As a journalist you should have been able to clue into that rather than launching an attack on a guy you have probably never met. If you really wanted to put someone on “blast” for their music and anti-feminist remarks, there are about 100 rap artist that you could have picked from. Go do some actual research, get some facts, and be a REAL columnist. At least then you won’t look like a person “grasping at straws” and creating an unintelligent critique of a song. Then again, if your writing is a true reflection of your understanding, reasoning and, compression, I doubt you will even understand half of my reply. As all critiques, they only matter if they come from a creditable source, you have proven by this writing you are not creditable, and thus warrant no actual consideration when you write something. So here are my credits, I started a local magazine in 1 city and have grown it to 4 states. I hire writers across the country every week, we have been covered and broken stories for USAToday, FOX News, STAR magazine, and other major networks. And I could go on and on with my credits that make my critiques substantial. However I will end with a piece of advice, there is enough real drama in the world, don’t be a columnist that needs to create fake critiques in hopes of stirring the pot. Go be a real journalist and find a story that will not make you look like a junior high school columnist that just could not find a story.
As a side note, your comment “But in “I’m Still a Guy” Brad Paisley is the worst kind of dude. The kind that will throw a macho-guy-pride fit if you ask him to hold your purse when your hands are full.” Was way off. Did you even listen to the song? He says he WILL hold your purse! Let me explain what he was talking about, he will hold a purse( never mentioned complaining about it”, but still fight for your honor if a “guy copps a feel as he walks by”.
Seriously , really bad critique
When you spend most of your post talking about yourself you show that, no you aren't a professional journalist! She was likening him to a guy that would have a problem with holding a purse, not misquoting the song. I love Brad Paisley's music and lyrics but he is making fun of the "other" type of men, not the macho types. It appeals to many of his fans but is not just a "fun song". Don't we all know that it was aimed at the gay as well as metro types when he takes about still having a pair. I guess that is ok as long as you disquise it as a cute little song, NOT!
