Kidz Bop. You either love them or you hate them. And if you love them you better be under the age of 5.
The only time I enjoy a Kidz Bop song is when it's a wildly inappropriate cover. I find the dumb lyric changes highly amusing, especially because they are usually in songs that are full of other innuendo that goes untouched. Here's ten of the dumbest!
Starships- Nicki Minaj
Original lyric- Higher than a motherf*@ker!
Edited Lyric- We’re Kidz Bop and we’re taking over!
Wow, taking out that lyric did absolutely nothing to change the meaning of this song. What genius thought it was a good idea to cover Minaj's ode to getting wasted. I will admit it, however, that this is the one time they improved upon the original. But that's not saying anything at all really.
California Gurls- Katy Perry
Original lyric-The boys, break their necks, (and done) try'na creep a little sneak peek, at us!
Edited Lyric- Boys break their necks, tryn’ to act a little crazy
You know what's bad? Boys sneeking peeks at girls. Instead let's imply that they may now be quadriplegics. I'm also pretty disappointed that the whole Snoop Dogg rap was eliminated. Curious what the would've done with the no weenies line. Also sippin' my juice?? SMH. These kidz probably think Lunchables are badass.
Let It Rock- Kevin Rudolf
Original lyric- But it broke his heart, so he stuck his middle finger to the world, to the world, to the world.
Edited Lyric- But it broke his heart, so he raised his hand and waved it to the world, to the world, to the world.
They waved to the world that broke their heart?? In your face, world!
Call Me Maybe- Carly Rae Jepsen
Original lyric-I beg and borrow and steal
Edited Lyric- I beg and borrow and feel
"Stealing is bad. better change that line. Giving your number to strange guys...we're fine with that." --Kidz Bop Producer
Born This Way- Lady Gaga
Original lyric-A different lover is not a sin
Edited Lyric-A different viewpoint is not a sin
Ummmm....if that's the case Kidz Bop than why did you remove all reference to queens, blacks, whites, beiges, Cholas and Orients? (Lady Gaga's words not mine)
Original lyric-And you're a tool
Edited Lyric- And you're a fool
Starting fights...fine. Death threats...fine. Tool? I don't think so. That's commonly used as a synonym for...fool. Huh?
Never Again-Kelly Clarkson
Original lyric- I hope when you’re in bed with her, you think of me
Edited Lyric- I hope when you’re out with her, you think of me.
So no one saw anything wrong with a little girl singing a song from the perspective of a scorned lover? Glad they changed this lyric. I mean, I'm fine with an 8 year old being bitter and vindictive as long as there's no bed action.
Tik Tok- Ke$ha
Original lyric- Before I leave, brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack 'Cause when I leave for the night, I ain't coming back
Edited Lyric-Before I leave, brush my teeth and then I go and pack 'Cause when I leave for the night, I ain't coming back
Why even bother with this one? I mean where is she going for the night? Also why is fighting acceptable in So What but fighting is out in this Ke$ha classic. Yeah, go ahead and barf, that's a 'thing'.
Not Myself Tonight- Christina Aguilera
Original lyric-And if you don't like it, f*@k you
Edited Lyric-And if you don’t like it boo hoo
Oh Kidz Bop! This is so dumb, I might actually prefer it to the original. There's something kind of Pee Wee Herman about it.
Glad You Came- The Wanted
Original lyric- Hand you another drink / Drink it if you can.
Edited Lyric- Hand you another dance / Dance it if you can
So the drinking was the only thing disturbing about kidz singing this song? The came part is okay? Maybe you wanna change it to "Hey, what's your name?" or 'This song is lame" or something other than anything that involves kidz singing something that involves 'came'?
