Little Big Town explains ‘Girl Crush’ meaning, no ‘gay agenda’

Country music stations are reportedly pulling the popular new song “Girl Crush” from the airwaves after some listeners have complained that the lyrics, noting that the femle singer appears to promote a “gay agenda.” In response, Little Big Town is speaking out to explain the “true” meaning behind the song.

The song, “Girl Crush,” includes the following word-play, said to be about a woman’s jealousy over her ex-boyfriend’s new relationship and not an endorsement of homosexuality, as the band states.

“I got a girl crush, hate to admit it, but I got a hard rush. It’s slowing down, I got it real bad, want everything she has,” the lyrics read. “That smile and that midnight laugh she’s giving you now. I want to taste her lips. Yeah, ’cause they taste like you.”

While the song has remained popular on radio charts, as some stations have responded to angry listeners who viewed the lyrics as pushing a same-sex agenda by limiting its airplay or removing it entirely.

The Washington Post reported that 104.3 FM’s morning show in Boise, Idaho received emails and phone calls alleging just that, causing her to shelve the song.,m,

A music director at a station in Texas also penned a blog post with similar claims, noting that his station was accused by listeners of “promoting the gay agenda” by playing the song — an argument he pushed back against, despite eventually limiting the song’s play.

Rare Country recently affirmed that the lyrics center on jealousy and not homosexuality and that they amount to the “most brilliant word play ever in a country song.”
