Bella Thorne Goes Hip-Hop On “Bitch I’m Bella Thorne” & “GOAT”
I love it when a Disney alum raises their middle finger to the mouse. The current measuring stick for ex-act rebellion is Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz era, but Bella Thorne well and truly has her beat with her new singles. Yes, plural. The 20-year-old blesses New Music Friday with two new songs, “GOAT” and “Bitch I’m Bella Thorne.” From the preview, it was clear that the singer/actress was experimenting with rap and she comes through with a couple of bratty bops that play up to her bad girl image.
Not that the lyrics are too over the top. Sure, there are lines about her pussy and nipples, but that’s pretty tame by hip-hop standards. I’m not sure if these constitute a guilty pleasure, because I’m experiencing no guilt. Nicki Minaj probably isn’t shaking in her boots, but I’ve heard a hell of a lot worse. Bella has been focussing a lot more attention on music of late. She recently contributed five songs to the soundtrack of Midnight Sun including the lead single, “Burn So Bright.” Listen to her new rap anthems below.
