As 2018 draws to a close, we here at Fiction’s Mistress encounter at least one person a day talking about the whole Baby, It’s Cold Outside fiasco. And while we agree that the song getting banned was more than a little bit of an overreaction, we also can’t deny that certain lyrics of the song are unquestionably outdated. And if the same song was released today…yeah. There would be major backlash.
But as it turns out, that isn’t the only holiday song that could use a little update! And thanks to Miley Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon, and Mark Ronson, we have a new, modernized version of the classic Christmas song, Santa Baby. And before anyone gets offended, give the song a listen. It’s pretty. Damn. Awesome. Just take a look at one of the verses.
“Listen Santa to what I say
A girl’s best friend is equal pay
Stop interrupting me when i talk
And don’t text me pictures of your– “
Miley, we’re with you on this!! And no, we aren’t about to say that the original song should be banned. And neither is Miley! So let’s just enjoy this new addition to our annual holiday playlist.
Watch the fantastic spoof of Santa Baby down below.
