Get On Your Knees ~ Nicki Minaj ft. Ariana Grande

Get On Your Knees has thrown under the bus the art of courtship in favor of primal and animalistic sex performance. As I listened to this track, gushy Zales and Kay’s Jewelers commercials came to mind featuring all of those couples who are so in love that only a diamond ring and/or a heart-shaped pendant can express what they really are feeling about romantic love (what’s that?). Yes, over the years as I have listened to some of the music playing on the airwaves, I have tried hard not to admit this but now I must: Courtship–the “middle wo/man” to getting “it”–and all of its accoutrements (roses, poems, jewelry) has been told s/he no longer is needed. Interested partners just should beg for “it!” … sigh … Romance is dead, and Cupid has been thrown to the wolves!
