Charli XCX - Break The Rules

The iGeneration =

Short attention span / on-the-go click / swipe behaviour

Endless choice

Music as a one night stand

Not giving a f*ck

This is Charli XCX’s ‘not giving a f*ck’ song for the short attention span kids with endless choice who treat music as a one night stand. It’s the kind of song that Britney Spears should have released instead of releasing the truly terrible Britney Jean or the kind of song that David Guetta probably wishes he had released instead of doing all that silly standing in one spot and jumping up and down with his hands in the air stuff. It is basically a banger with stupid (in a good way) old fashioned lyrics about not wanting to go to school, getting wrecked and dancing. 

It is of course inane and mindless, but then sometimes that is all pop needs to be. Break The Rules is from the forthcoming album Sucker – now there’s a title.
