What is the deal with music lyrics these days?
For example, Usher has a hit song (with will.i.am) called OMG. What’s the chorus?
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh my god…
That has me saying “Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho-lee crap does this song lyric suck.”
What about Travie McCoy’s Billionaire with Bruno Mars’ hook:
I wanna be a millionaire so f–king bad…
Who doesn’t want that? Well, maybe not the part about hanging out with Oprah and Queen Elizabeth, since one is allegedly busy rigging her own contest against a kid with cerebral palsy, and the other had her budget slashed.
How could I miss mentioning Black Eyed Peas getting-ready-to-party-and-then-actually-party anthem, I Gotta Feeling. Who hasn’t said previously and into infinity:

When I get finally get home, I can think like Ice Cube:
Um… where was I going with this post anydadada?
