So I guess I’m a little bit slow on the uptake, but …
I finally got around to watching the Black Eyed Peas’ video for “My Humps” and listening to the lyrics. Previously, I’d only heard it in the background on the radio at work and hadn’t paid that much attention to it. I thought it just sounded like your typical pointless Top 40 “R&B” song. I don’t think I even realized it was the Black Eyed Peas.
Now that I’ve checked it out, I think I’m impressed. Am I correct in guessing that the song is poking fun at “bling culture” - mocking the men who think they have to flaunt their money to get a woman, and the women who encourage it? I’ve gotten the impression in the past that the BEP’s lyrics were unusually thoughtful and message-driven.
Did they do that song, “Where Is the Love”?
