“Girl Crush” Has Lesbian Undertones?
So country music stations are showing some homophobia over a new song by Little Big Town. It’s kind of sad, really. What does it really matter if the song does have a “gay agenda” or something similar? The song could be about a woman who really is looking at herself and finding herself lacking and wanting to be someone else. It is definitely a song about female identity, and apparently when that doesn’t conform to strict societal dictates, slam it!
While the BBMAs crowd seemed to thoroughly appreciate the performance on Sunday, the single “Girl Crush” has incited some controversy from critics saying the lyrics had gay undertones. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the song was pulled by several country music stations due to its “lesbian themes” and “gay agenda.”
