Australian News defends Barbados Youth Ambassador while Barbadian Magistrate hating on Rihanna’s new hit, “Rude Boy”
Listening to the radio these days is a challenge, all radio stations of Barbados here seem to play pure dreck, so when ‘Rude Boy’ come along it’s a bit of fresh air to me… It is one of the Flashing Cockatoo’s (Flashing Cockatoo? I mean the ecdysiast with pasties and a wild hairdo, Rihanna) best songs in a while, I like the island beat and even the crazy video… Barbados Free Press and myself are in accord over her other crazy habits and why they do not mesh in being a Youth Ambassador or Role Model – it’s even been noticed in Australia; as for Magistrate Ian Weekes objecting to the lyrics for Rihanna’s current song?
SOS Band’s “Take Your Time (And Do It Right)” or Captain & Tennille’s “Do That to Me One More Time”; even Mtume’s “Juicy” (that one did nearly have a global ban for its lasciviousness, but it didn’t, point being) are a trio of a multiplicity of tunes which have “double entendres”….
This is not even aiming at the Caribbean and looking at Sparrow’s ‘Congo Man’ (Allegedly cannibalism, more on inter-racial cunnilingus – “…never eat a white meat yet…”) or Foreuigner Frank’s ‘Lawn ‘Um Down’ (“…too much grass ’round the doghouse…” an Antiguan tune made popular in Barbados in 1988, which contained a veiled reference for a woman to shave her pubes closely if she expects action of a sexual nature) – among so many others here too!
