Spoiler Alert: Phil Robertson hates pop music. The Duck Dynasty patriarch agreed to listen and react to today’s top hits on camera, and the result is exactly what you’d expect.
Phil Robertson And Pop Music
Phil Robertson is coming after today’s popular artists, and not even Taylor Swift is safe. The Robertson patriarch agreed to listen to popular music in an Independent Journal Review video. As you probably predicted, he hated it.
“Whatever happened to Creedence Clearwater Revival?” Phil asked. He didn’t want anything to do with the remix of rap and pop that was played for him in front of the camera.
The good people at Independent Journal Review first played Demi Lovato’s Sorry Not Sorry. To make things worse, Phil was also watching the song’s accompanying music video. The video features scantily clad women and men having a pool party. Phil said, “All I saw of that kind of music was basically butts and boobs. Do we have to listen to it that long?”
Phil looked visibly in pain while subjected to what he considers the devil’s music. Next up on the track list was Eminem, to which Phil asked, “As in the candy nuggets?” To many Eminem is thought to be the greatest rapper of all time. However, Phil decided, “That dude did a horrible thing to M&Ms.”
“I stay in the woods, and I’m better off for it.”
Thirdly was Cardi B’s Bodak Yellow, followed by Taylor Swift’s latest massive hit, Look What You Made Me Do. Phil wasn’t totally off base when he said, “What’s that girl’s name? The evil one done got to her too.” Taylor did say the old Taylor is dead…
Things Got Serious
While all of this may seem in good fun, Phil did get pretty serious towards the end of the video. What seemed like a funny video about an out of touch grandpa, turned into a political statement that hit…below the belt.
After hearing Beyonce’s song Blow, Phil proclaimed, “And you wonder why 110 million of us have a sexually transmitted disease at any given time? So according to God, the Center for Disease Control and me, don’t listen to that chick.”
Phil Robertson is certainly strong in his disdain for pop music. It seems like this outdoorsman truly wants nothing to do with the pop-culture world.
