Kesha - Tik Tock - Promoting Underage Drinking

Music is a VERY powerful tool that shapes society, especially youth. Through music moods can be brought up, or alternatively moods can be brought down.

In modern 'pop' culture (or rather lack of) music also is used to send out messages that influence the younger generation.

The current politics of record companies and song writers, is to promote 'partying', and that you're cool if you end up drunk in a bath tub or wherever.

Performers like Kesha ( or as she wants to be known as : Ke$ha ) promote the break up / disharmony of the family unit, through a 'partying' lifestyle.

Through this the image of underage drinking is clearly promoted / evident. Even though Kesha's birth year is 1987 according to (wiki) and the legal drinking age in the United States is 21, the teenage lifestyle is evident where alcohol is the dominant party beverage.

Lyrics :

"Before I leave, brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack" (Daniels)

"Trying to get a little bit tipsy"

"Aint got a care in world, but got plenty of beer"

promote alcoholism, and the delusional megalomaniac attitude that:

"No, the party don't start till I walk in"

play a very important part in the shaping of the children of the general populous.

Nothing more nor nothing less than PURE ENTERTAINMENT TRASH.

The politics is to degrade the youth of the canon fodder.
