WTF? New ‘Hot Problems’ Song Is Incredibly Bad
For the record, I’d like to blame Samantha Brick (the British chick who suffers unbearable treatment from being insanely attractive according to… herself) and Twitter with all of its problem-based hashtag topics (e.g. #prettygirlproblems, #firstworldproblems, etc.) for what you’re about to see.
Remember last year, when Rebecca Black cursed us all with her horrible song about the best day of the week? In a thinly veiled copycat attempt, Drew and Lauren, who collectively form the group Double Take, have made an even worse song. Entitled ‘Hot Problems’ the song includes such well thought out and intricately arranged lyrics as the following:
“Hot girls have problems too
We’re just like you
Except we’re hot”
Unfortunately, as noted by Scav, we place far too much value on celebrity these days. We bestow celebrity, fame, influence, and income on people who do not have the talent to warrant any of the above reality TV, anyone?. This pair of 17 year-olds were obviously looking for their 15 minutes of fame. Like many others, they seem to have found it – for making a horrible song. Don’t take our word for it, though. See for yourselves.
The video is nearing 3 million views on YouTube and is getting mainly negative reviews. That doesn’t seem to be stopping the young ladies, however, who have done a press tour of sorts within the past few days. Here’s a recent interview of them with MTV.
If people are wondering why the music industry is dying, it’s because it’s hard to separate music and we use that term loosely made for fun from true, moving works of art. Everyone has access to the airwaves these days, and while that is – in many ways – a beautiful thing, it is not without its disadvantages. Here’s hoping these ladies stay in school.
