See, what she had said early on was that her ode to the wonders of date rape, "Spectacular," is that it was a message song. But in this video Kiely Williams helpfully explains that she's just playing a character and it's "just a song" y'all! Just a little club ditty about getting screwed without a rubber (possibly) by some guy you don't know while in a drunken blackout. Oh. OK, girl. I'll let my girl Denene from My Brown Baby take this one.
From My Brown Baby:
So singing about how "spectacular" it is to have drunk, unprotected sex with a random dude who's name she doesn't know is a public service announcement? For what? The quickest way to get HIV? Raped? Called a ho?
Thanks, girl. Good lookin' out for my girls. Just the message they need.
Um, so look: If this is how we stay relevant these days, Kiely, go for it: Get your edgy Lady Gaga on, do the Beyonce half-naked booty pop, rip out your soul and lay it at the altar of a Timbaland Euro beat—do what you can to keep the cabinets stocked with something other than Ramen Noodles. But really, girl: Leave the babies out of it. At least have the decency to admit the song sucks, the message sucks harder, and you just did it to avoid having to kick rocks for the rest of your life.
And then go kick rocks.
