I don't know what music you're listen to, but I sure don't have anything like that on my iPod. Sorry, but I'd be bored to tears working out to Mozart or Christian hymns. If that means I have bad taste, so be it. I'd rather have bad taste than listen to Disney music all day.
Seriously, I'd love to know what world everyone else is living in, because it sure ain't mine. I never hear any of this sexed-up music people say is all over the radio. Maybe I just have a good station. My friend's don't listen to it, I never hear it on TV. Been listening to the radio in the background all day for years while I work, yet I never hear any of the music so many Christians seem to fear for their lives about.
OP, let your kid listen to Taylor Swift. Trust me; she's not going to be humping and grinding at a school dance from that, and it's not some slippery slope to mortal sin either.
Are you sure you listen to all the lyrics? I ask not to be rude, but because my husband and I are both REALLY bad about this. We like a beat and we buy/listen to a song or band. Then someone else is listening to the music and they're like 'do you HEAR what the person is saying?!?' and we have to listen closer.
Anyway, I think that Taylor Swift is OK, but I'm not a fan of the poppy-country genre in general. But I do think it's clean music. I have to agree with the person that said it could be a slippery slope, however I think if you approach every band/song like you're approaching Taylor Swift then it'll be OK. Personally, I know a lot of parents that let their kids listen to The Blackeyed Peas and Beyonce, and I'm in shock. It's usually because they've listened to a couple songs and they're OK, then they don't continually check on what people are putting out these days. It's scary what's mainstream these days.
