Magic Shake-Ball


Dear Magic Shake-Ball,

Should I be concerned that my fourth-grader kept singing the line "boys tryin' to touch my junk, junk" at breakfast this morning?

Yours faithfully,

An Old-Fashioned Mom

Well, let's see. This scene is about a maid helping her lady pick a suitor. "Tic Tok" is also about potential suitors. And also about girls helping other girls, if I trust that Ke$ha is really a good person with the right intentions. I like to assume that about everyone. I also like that Ke$ha isn't a snob. She's not singing about rich people and their maids. Maybe that's what these lines are all about:

Ain't got a care in world, but got plenty of beer
Ain't got no money in my pocket, but I'm already here.

That's kind of cool and public school of her. Alright . . . I think I'm down with it!
