How to talk to your kid about a BOP song
Posted On August 9, 2021
When Mariah Carey started rapping, she didn’t know much about rap, and that made her more of a curiosity than a threat.
But over the years, she’s been writing raps about pop culture, even as she’s found herself becoming more vocal about politics and the issues facing the LGBT community.
The result is a collection of songs that range from pop songs about fashion, to songs about her personal struggles with gender identity and self-love, to pop songs that talk about how she thinks about the world.
And the lyrics have changed over time, too.
“You are who you say you are” was originally written in 2007 and has since become a pop song about her transition from male to female.
Now, it’s a more sensitive song, saying she’s more aware of her feelings than she ever was.
“I think there are some really good things in our society, but there are also some really bad things,” she sings on the track “Boys Don’t Cry.”
“And it’s not just the things that are happening, but the ways we are treating each other and the ways that we are exploiting each other.”
Carey says she started to notice the issues with the current culture of transgender people and that there was a “need for some awareness,” and she wanted to share her thoughts with others.
“So I wrote a song about how the world can’t wait to change, that we have to be proactive about making changes in the world, and it’s about how we can be better,” she told Billboard in a recent interview.
Mariah’s lyrics reflect a shift in her outlook, but she also acknowledges that the music she sings isn’t always reflective of the people she’s talking about.
“Sometimes, you don’t see how people are and how they are feeling.
It’s just the way they are,” she said.
“If you see that on a track, that’s just how I feel.
But that’s not necessarily the way I feel.”
The “You Are Who You Say You Are” video, which was released in April, was part of a broader campaign for LGBT equality.
In April, Mariah launched her own video series called “I Am,” in which she talked about her own life and about the struggles that transgender people face.
It has garnered over 1 million views on YouTube, according to Billboard.
And Carey’s song “Bones” is a favorite of pop stars, including Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, and more.
It features a song called “You’re the Real Thing,” which was created for the song “I Feel,” a collaboration with Mariah.
Carey’s video for “You Feel It” has gained over 1.7 million views.
“Bodies” was also featured in a new documentary that aired this past summer on BET called “All Stars: Mariah.”
Carey is also a member of the Boy Meets World cast, which includes TLC’s Billy Ray Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa, and Nicki Minaj.
Carey also wrote the lyrics to a song that was performed by the Boy Scouts of America during a ceremony on April 27.
In a video released by the organization in April that also featured other celebrities, Carey spoke about her relationship with her son, Jake, who is transgender.
She also shared the lyrics for a song from her new album, “I’m Still Here.”
“There are a lot of people who are hurting and trying to figure it out, and I feel like there are people out there who have never had the support or acceptance of me that I have had, and who are going through a lot,” Carey said in the video.
“And I think that’s important for me to be able to tell that story to my son, because there’s a lot out there that isn’t.
I’m not trying to tell my story, I’m just trying to help others.”
