In what can only be described as a giant step backward for all women everywhere, “Vampire Diaries” actress Katerina Graham has released a video for her upcoming single, “Put Your Graffiti on Me.” The video is just as classy as the song title suggests.
Not since the days of “Hit Me Baby One More Time” have we seen such blatant sexuality wrapped up in bubble gum packing. As Katerina bumps and grinds against a cement wall with a gaggle of girls, she sings out such charming lyrics as “Cotton candy, lollipop, stick me like a Post-it” and “Real bad habits, throw me up against a wall first.”
No doubt it’s destined to be a hit. And, apparently, it’s going to spread a great message to young fans in the process.
"The song is basically about owning yourself sexually and allowing yourself to be owned too,” Katerina told reporters. “And having empowerment in that. I'm all about female empowerment and having a song that has this kind of reference."
Yes, we’re all basking in the empowerment. Maybe her next song should be called “Things That Make Gloria Steinem Cry.”
J-Connection: Katerina Graham’s mother is a Russian-Polish Jew. Our apologies to the universe.
