Kidz Bop Targeted as "Homophobic"

I am not gonna spend my entire career trying to cater to your children. that is your job.”

-Montero Hill

Imagine being so bored that you have the time to get angry at Kidz Bop for the changes they make to the lyrics of songs they cover. Recently, Kidz Bop covered “Monetero (Call Me By Your Name)” by Lil Nas X. During the pre-chorus, Lil Nas X sings, “You live in the dark, boy, I cannot pretend.” Kidz Bop changed the “boy” to “yeah,” and instead sang, “You live in the dark, yeah, I cannot pretend.”

Yahoo News dared to ask whether Kidz Bop is “innocent” or “homophobic.” Kids Bop is known for changing lyrics referring to drugs and sex and replacing them with something cute and obnoxious. Anyone who has heard the song “Monetero” can rightfully assume that a number of the lyrics needed to be changed for the Kidz Bop version. It almost would have made more sense to cover a different song completely.

The woke left argues that Kidz Bop deliberately changed “boy” to “yeah” because the company that covers pop songs for children finds homosexuality offensive. Is it homophobic? I’d have to assume not, Taylor Henderson (author of the Kidz Bop hit piece.) The company clearly covered a song by Lil Nas X, who is an outspoken homosexual. I have to assume that the brand is not afraid or fearful of homosexuals because they could have chose a different artists entirely.

The company’s intentions may never come to light, because the issue isn’t of any importance. Private companies make decisions that benefit their bottom dollar all the time. Decisions made by private corporations to censor content have been applauded by the woke left over the past two years; this decision is no different.

The only reason people are upset by the company's decision is because Kidz Bop doesn't appear to be promoting the national narrative. Children these days are expected to embrace homosexuality, even when they may not understand sexuality at all. Children are constantly being used by the media and politicians to score political points. The left feels like they were stripped from an opportunity by the changed lyrics. However, if you listen to the song in its entirety, it embraces homosexuality--even with the lyrics changed.

Why must we always make mountains out of molehills? Kidz Bop covers popular songs and makes them child-friendly. They have removed and replaced vulgar lyrics for the past two decades. I highly doubt they were taking a shot at the LGBTQ+ community by their actions. Lil Nas X even shared a clip of the children’s cover saying, “they killed it tho [sic].” If the artist who created the content isn’t upset with the changes made, why are you?

By the way, I'm content with there never being another Kidz Bop album.
