Little Big Town Perform “Girl Crush” on ‘The Tonight Show’

Little Big Town

On Tuesday night, Little Big Town brought their controversial new single, “Girl Crush” to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Check out their performance and then see why people are needlessly causing drama over “Girl Crush here.

Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush” Isn’t About Lesbians… Duh

Apparently country radio stations are being forced to pull Little Big Town‘s latest single “Girl Crush” from the airwaves due to a rush of angry listeners misinterpreting the song as gay propaganda. Um…cool your jets all you closed-minded folks who are rushing to the wrong conclusion…(but even if it were about a girl digging on another girl, change the station, don’t go all nuts clogging up the station lines.) According to The Washington Post, the groups latest single has been a top seller on iTunes but is having trouble breaking the top 30 because people can’t seem to get passed certain lyrics and actually hear the song and what it’s actually saying.

The song is actually a jealous ex-girlfriend’s unique perspective…wishing she were the new girlfriend…wishing she could be with her old flame vicariously through the new girlfriend…Wondering what it is about this new woman that makes her better…

‘I want to taste her lips, yeah cause they taste like you / I want to drown myself in a bottle of her perfume.  I want her long blond hair, I want her magic touch / Yeah cause maybe then, you’d want me just as much. . . I got a girl crush.’

The thing is…if you read the lyrics above… it’s obvious that the woman is singing about wishing she could be this woman just so she could have her man back. If anything, people should be irritated that a woman can get this worked up over a man…not concentrating on the creative use of words to paint a picture.

“It’s a genius lyric, such a beautifully written song about jealousy,” says Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild said in an interview with The Washington Post. “It was like, ‘Why would we not cut this?’”

Though label executives had some reservations about releasing it as a single, “They all agreed it was a moment on the record that everybody needed to hear,” Fairchild said. “Sure, there was a little bit of dialogue about the title and ‘Would people listen to the lyrics?’ But it didn’t stop us.”

What’s even more shocking is that country radio and the angry moms who call the stations saying they don’t want their kids hearing a song about what they think is about girls loving girls have no problem with songs portraying women as eye candy or a piece of meat used for sexual gratification of men. Apparently it’s okay for your daughters to be hood ornaments for pick-up trucks and not find another woman attractive.

“That’s just shocking to me, the close-mindedness of that, when that’s just not what the song was about,” Fairchild said, “But what if it were? It’s just a greater issue of listening to a song for what it is.”

“It’s about a girl saying, you know, ‘Why do you love her and not me?’”

So, I challenge all of you country fans who are willing to actually hear the message the song is ACTUALLY saying to put on your big girl panties and call your radio stations and request Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush”… because this is just silly. This song is a million times better than the cut-off jean wearin’, dixie cup drinkin, truck bed dancin’ in the moonlight crap that’s getting all the air play.
