Brian McFadden Pulls New Single Over Date Rape Promotion Claims

Brian McFadden 'Wall of Soundz'

checked in with his Twitter followers (@BrianMcFadden) moments ago, horrified by the reaction to his new single ‘Just The Way You Are (Drunk At The Bar)’, with many suggesting that the track promotes date rape. The song includes the lyrics, “I like you just the way you are, drunk as sh**, dancing at the bar” and “can’t wait to get you home so I can do some damage, can’t wait to get you home and take advantage.”

The former Westlife star Tweeted yesterday:

My new song is a tongue in cheek song about how I find it cute when my girl gets drunk… I am not promoting date-rape.

What’s the next thing I am going to be labeled as from things I say. Super intelligent reaction to my song. Wish I was as clever as them

And yes it is dumb lyrics and a dumb beat…. that was the point!!!! When did I ever claim to be John Lennon?

And earlier this morning:

Feel sick that my single is getting so much attention for the wrong reason. I love making music but I do not want this song played on radio or being sold to profit myself if people think it’s about “date rape”. It’s not about date rape. I’m gonna give all my profits from the song to victims of rape. Because it disgusts me. Sorry people misunderstood my lyrics. Someone let me know a worthy charity who supports victims.

and finally…. my song is supposed to be fun… not offensive……. guess not everyone has the same sense of humor

This is not a publicity stunt… so don’t think I’m backing down and agreeing. I just wouldn’t give the haters the pleasure. x
