That "My Humps" song drives my husband crazy

Filed under: Teens, Development/Milestones: Babies, That's Entertainment

You've heard it, right? That ode to the ass "My Humps" by the Black Eyed Peas? The song that opens with the lyrics:

What you gonna do with all that junk?
All that junk inside that trunk?
I’ma get, get, get, get, you drunk,
Get you love drunk off my hump.
My hump...
My lovely little lumps.

Well, it's now featured in a national phone commercial, and everytime my husband hears it he cringes. "It's so disrespectful to women," he'll say, despite the fact that it is sung by a woman. (Fergie, pictured.) Or, he just shakes his head and mutters, "I hate this song. It's so dumb and I don't want our daughters singing it. ...Grumble, grumble."

Tonight the commercial came on and he started in again. "Our girls will probably be singing songs just like this," I told him. I actually shudder to think about what body parts might be celebrated by the time our girls hit tweenhood. I could tell my husband felt a twinge unsupported when I didn't chime right up and agree with him. What do you think? Is singing a song about one's "lady lumps" a rite of passage? Or will you put cotton in your children's ears when songs like this come on the radio?
