Alicia Keys is the female Bruno Mars. Beautiful voice, great melodies… moronic lyrics. Her new song This Girl is On Fire is a classic example of how to murder a metaphor:
This girl is on fiyaaaaah
Doing fine so far- this girl is clearly doing something awesome or she’s really angry. Here’s where it goes wrong:
She’s walking on fiyaaah
OH SHIT. I thought this was a metaphor, but plainly this woman is in an actual, physical place that is on fire. And it’s spread to whatever she’s wearing. PUT THE FIRE OUT AND SAVE THIS POOR WOMAN.
