Watchdog Group “Focus on Children” has released a report accusing popular music star Rihanna of having “hidden messages” and “themes of sadomasochism” in her recent hit song “S&M.”
Pastor Bibby McFadden said he just heard the song for the first time last month and immediately commissioned a report on it. “We suspected after hearing the opening lyrics ‘Na na na na na Come on’ that something was amiss. Why all the ‘na’s and why the invitation to ‘come on?’ Those things don’t belong in songs, not even pop music.”
Curiously, McFadden and his group had no comment on the lyrics which had gained the attention of other groups:
Sex in the air, I don’t care, I love the smell of it
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But chains and whips excite me
When we showed the video of the song, which features a crawling Rihanna and segments of erotic rope bondage, the Pastor seemed non-plussed. “Well, I am not really sure what all that singing is about, but the na na na part still makes me uncomfortable,” he told us after watching the video.
The committee, who also had not seen the video, requested a copy for more extended analysis.
“We’re going to have to watch this dozens if not hundreds of times to find the hidden messages,” Martha Greenbeck told The Daily Flogger. “What is offensive and dangerous is how they try to hide their sex agenda in catchy tunes and flashy videos. It may not be obvious from the video or lyrics, but I definitely think this is about sex.”
Tim McGee, a member of the board of directors at “Focus on Children,” said that he knew there was something wrong with the song, because “every time I hear it, I get an erection. That’s not normal. And since I know I am normal, there must be a problem with the music.”
