If you have tuned in to your local pop music station lately, you may still not know that 3 out of 10 of today’s top hits feature four-letter-words. That’s because some, like Cee Lo Green’s “F*** You” are re-recorded and a clean version is released for broadcast; in Green’s case, “Forget You” is the song you hear on the radio. While airplay might mask this trend, those purchasing music can get an earful, from Pink’s “F**king Perfect” to Enrique Iglesias’s “Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You)”. Dr. Janice Crouse, Senior Fellow and Director of CWA’s Beverly LaHaye Institute, has more.
