Redfoo, an inexplicably famous Sideshow Bob impersonator possessing a weave so dense it has been known to attract objects with its gravitational pull, has released the worst song of this year (or any), an inadvertent ode to being The Worst Dude Ever, “Literally I Can’t”. As in the fact this guy’s a semi-famous Grammy nominee who can’t stop wearing shutter shades literally can’t be dealt with.
But why so terrible? Let us count the ways.
Foremost is Redfoo’s verse, which includes the following lines of sophomoric misogyny: “You got a big ol’ butt. I can tell by the way you walkin’. But, you annoying me, because you’re talking,” “shut the fuck up” and “Girl I’m sipping on this drink, trying to see what you got, not hear what you think.”
Second, the accompanying music video also featuring Play-N-Skillz, Lil Jon and Enertia McFly, is a shrine to rape culture in which the chorus – annoying variations of “literally”, “I” and “can’t” – are framed as puritanical rebukes to persistent offers of alcohol. The sorority sisters providing the resistance/chorus depicted as prudish, snobby and joyless when in fact they’re just protecting themselves from alcohol poisoning. Who knows? Chill guys, maybe they’re just not that #thirsty?
Thirdly, anything that perpetuates sidechained car alarms as pop music needs to be burnt alive immediately.
What say you, Redfoo?
Another example of critics victimizing an artist by purposely misinterpreting his/her work to support a pre-existing agenda. #LiterallyICant
