    I don't like KidzBop. I think 'they aka music execs' think they are bringing popular music to young kids, but I think it is actually doing them a disservice. Music represents a period of time and a culture and by censoring their songs they are doing nothing but hindering what the songs were set out to teach. Now curse words, should be censored for the KidsBop audience, but when you take non-curse words out to appeal to "political" crowd, it doesnt make sense.

    In the case of the Born this Way song I'm surprised it was allowed given how much was redacted (I didn't actually recognize the changes, but looked them up on wikipedia - basically removing references to race and sexual orientation ... which, I understood, were kind the theme of the song).

    Who makes the choices that the songs be allowed?
