What the ffffffff??

There is a song called Crush from a singer called Taryn Southern that bugs the crap out of me.  She is saying she has a crush on someone in the song, but the rest of the lyrics basically point to a sick obsession.  I can’t figure out why any radio station would play this garbage.  This is exactly the behavior we don’t want kids thinking is okay. Here are the lyrics (apologies in advance for the poor grammar..it’s copied from a lyrics site):

I screen saved all the photos from your family vacations
I checked out all your Spotify recommendations
Followed you on Twitter and Instagram too
is there anywhere else I can find you….

Every 15 minutes
I’m refreshing your page
refreshing your page…..

It was love at first sight except you tried to ignore /me, you were playin’ hard to get
Now I want to be your girlfriend But now you can’t ignore me ‘cuz I found you on the/ internet.

Now I always know who you’re with, where you are. and what you’re doing
I just wish it was me that you were pursuing
The funny thing is you haven’t got a clue
That i’ve got a crush on you.

I get notified you’ve posted on Facebook
sure enough, there’s a new photo on your wall
Within a few minutes, i see some blonde chick liked it (yeah some blonde chick liked it)
I bet that she’s your late night booty call

you send out a tweet that today was the great day
but how it could be without me there
i bet it’s because you’re sleeping with that blonde chick on Facebook
the one with the bleached peroxide hair

CHORUS

Every 15 minutes
I’m refreshing your page
refreshing your page…..

It was love at first sight
but you tried to ignore me
yoyu were playing hard to get
Now I wanna be your girlfriend
but you can’t ignore me
cuz I found you on the internet
Now I always know who you’re with, where you are and what you’re doing
I just wish it was me that you were pursuing
and the funny thing is, you haven’t got a clue
that i’ve got a crush you.

BRIDGE
You’ll never know the pain I feel
as I watch you from afar
I can’t deny that my love is real
I even know who your friends of friends of friends are…

I never knew how bad love could hurt
until I put you on my google alert
every post every tweet it’s so hard to see
that it’s not about me, not about me…

CHORUS

Every 15 minutes
I’m refreshing your page
refreshing your page…..

It was love at first sight
but you tried to ignore me
yoyu were playing hard to get
Now I wanna be your girlfriend
but you can’t ignore me
cuz I found you on the internet
Now I always know who you’re with, where you are and what you’re doing
I just wish it was me that you were pursuing
and the funny thing is, you haven’t got a clue
that i’ve got a crush you.

oh crap. you just blocked me
from viewing your Facebook crap
you just blocked me from your twitter too
you sent me an email to leave you alone
but guess what, i still like you.

Yikes. Scary.

(And I probably sound like my parents.)
