Someone call the doctor, we’ve got a case of the love bipolar

So the song that I’ll be obsessed with this week is Katy Perry’s Hot ‘N Cold. This, of course, is from the same artist as this summer’s hit “I Kissed a Girl.” Aside from it being a great song to run to, I think it’s a really fun anthem for any girl/guy who is having a rough patch in a relationship.  However, I think that once you delve into the song, it seems less empowering than it does on the outside.

Below are some of the lyrics:

You’re hot and you’re cold

You’re yes then you’re no

You’re in and you’re out

You’re up and you’re down

Someone call the doctor

Got a case of a love bi-polar

Stuck on the roller coaster

Can’t get off this ride

I think it’s interesting how she notes that he’s “no good for me” and that she “should know that you’re not gonna change” but that she continues to go on this “roller coaster” of emotions with the clearly uncommitted partner.
