X Factor's Rachel Crow Decides to Comb Mean Girls Out of Her Curls

Fourteen-year-old Rachel Crow, who wowed Simon Cowell (and TV viewers) with her X Factor audition last year, has just debuted a new song and video from her upcoming album, and it deals with bullying. Crow sings:

Who do you think you are
Loud mouth cafeteria star
Maybe somebody was cruel to you
So you think that's what you're supposed to do


And continues:

I won't let it get to me no more
I don't wanna feel this way
I can't believe I let it go so far
No no, it's not okay
What do you know about me?
Do you wanna know what I think?
Mean girls, mean girls
I'm a just comb you out of my curls
Mean girls, mean girls,
You no longer run my world


The song is kind of meh, but at least Crow, who has a small part on a Nickelodeon show called Fred, is singing positive, age-appropriate stuff to her young fans?

Yeah, the lyrics are definitely a little... campy and bland, but I can respect the message, and I guess just saying "Girls, fuck the haters 'cause y'all are FABULOUS and anyone who doesn't think so and tries to make you think otherwise shouldn't matter" doesn't make for a number one hit.

It is kind of disappointing that this sort of thing needs its own song, though, and to think that the sort of chicks who ARE doing this type of nasty bullying just grow up into... well, no, they just get older, they never grow up. In addition to teaching girls how to deal with bullies, we should also be on examining WHY girls bully other girls, and more willing to deal with that than just teaching our daughters to brush it off. I remember finding out once that my baby (ten years my junior) sister was being a nasty, rude, bullying little witch in junior high to some girl in her year. I was HORRIFIED, both because my otherwise sweet and meek sister, who had everything she ever wanted and seemed perfectly well adjusted, was doing it, and that it was bad enough for the other kid's sister to come find me at work at tell me about it. My sister cut it off abruptly when I confronted her, but she never could explain why she was doing it to begin with other than "it's funny" and "I was bored". That sort of mentality tied to making other girls feel bad about themselves makes me deeply concerned for women in general.
