For Your Entertainment Lyrics

So hot out the box
Can we pick up the pace
Turn it up, heat it up
I need to be entertained
Push the limit, are you with it, baby, don’t be afraid
Imma hurt you real good baby

Let’s go, it’s my show, baby, do what I say
Don’t trip...

    Yes, he's gay; yes it's about BDSM: both are fine in my personal ethics, but the deepest meanings of *most* of the catchiest pop-songs are an omage to satan and the occult.

    I found this page with a Google to see if he'd admitted it somewhere. Some of them do.
    When they say they've sold their souls, they're not kidding, and the worship they share with you is designed (not by them) to lead you down similar path. Not that you're likely to see their worldly benefits of it.

    Compare friggen Doja Cat "Paint the town red",
    Sam Smith's "Unholy" + his black magic ritual at the grammy's, the entire trip-hop genre :(

    I think he is using the sex you all think it is about to say something about the entertainment industry. music is supposed to be art, it is supposed to transport, make us dance, touch our souls.... and yet the entertainment industry is vulgar money making exploitation. So - are you ready for this? Isn't it what you wanted? Are you not entertained?

    There is millions of interpretations to this song. It all depends on the mind set. So all the sex and kink interpretations are very obvious to everyone. I am one who connects the lyrics with sex and kink. I also however seethe meanings two. I have two examples for now.

    "Once I'm in I own Your Heart"
    Commonly interpreted sexually.
    Another way I read it is...

    'Once his music is heard, his music Owns Your Heart'
    When I heard his music, it stuck with me in my heart.

    'Take the Pain take the Pleasure I'm a Master of Both'

    This is definitely kink, but i see another meaning.

    'This could also mean that he has been through Pain and Pleasure, Thick or Thin or even Ups and Downs.
    Just simply Life.

    Just Depends on the Mind Set, and Wjat events happened in the individuals life to create that mind set.

    The song is about BDSM and Kink. The writer of this song did a wonderful job presenting what a dominant does needs and wants.

    Is not JUST about sex. It's about equality within a submissive/dominant relationship. "Let me entertain you." He's asking for consent he's not demanding.

    Try reading about it before making a silly guess or quick judgement.

    I recommend A Different Loving for those who fall over the age of majority.

    If you still don't believe me watch the video. Leather, chains, restraints? Clearly kink.

    like the person said...its obviously about sex...but self-mutilation is another way to look at it... songs can have multiple meanings, whether its on purpose or just something that makes sense

    It's about getting laid and having sex.
    "I told you I'ma hold you down until you're amazed." Which is a clear statment saying, "I won't stop until you like it." Or something similar like that. It has nothing to do with self-mutilation. "Take the pain, Take the pleasure. I'm the master of both." Sex sometimes hurts (I guess) and it's also pleasure. He's making it clear that he's good at it. "I bet you thought I was soft and sweet. You thought an angel swept you off your feet. I'm here for your entertainment." He's mostly saying, "You thought I 'played' the way I act, when really, I'm something that can be dangerous." Also, "Let me entertain you until you scream." Which is also saying, "Let me 'do' ya until you've had enough."

    It's all about sex, he also said it in an interview.

    This song is a clear case of BDSM, and he's expressing his sexuality to the fullest extent and basically saying to his fans and viewers that, like it or not this is me and I'm not going to change and don't care whether you approve or not. I'm here solely for your entertainment and nothing else.

    Aside from its obvious sexual content, this song seems to have strong undertones of self-mutilation. "Push the limit, are you with it, baby don't be afraid" - Refers to what persuades somebody to start cutting as a means of coping; e.g. "The cool kids do it, don't be scared, you won't die," etc. "I'm'a hurt you real good," "Take the pain, take the pleasure" - Definitely could refer to the adrenaline "high" reported by kids who cut. "No escaping when I start, once I'm in I own your heart" - Cutting is an addiction. "There's no way to riing the alarm, so hold on until it's over" - Fear of being stigmatized prevents the cutter from telling, so they have to try to stop on their own. "Do you know what you got into? Can you handle what I'm 'bout to do? 'Cuz it's about to get rough for you" - The cutter is wondering if they got more than they bargained for by starting and whether they should continue. "I'm here for your entertainment" - Cutting is a way for the person to cope with something. "Bet you thought I was soft and sweet, thought an angel swept you off your feet, But I'm about to turn up the heat" - The person thinks self-mutilation will be easy but they realize how addictive and painful it is. "It's all right, you'll be fine, baby I'm in control"- Refers to someone reassuring themselves that it is not unhealthy, but acknowledging that the behavior is starting to control them. "Close your eyes, not your mind / Let me into your soul" - Telling the cutter to ignore when people judge them for doing it, and to continue. "I'm'a work you till you're totally blown" -The person refuses to stop until they go too far and need to see a doctor.

    I know this is not what the song is about; it's just another way to see it.

    Another way of thinking is that it's about him connecting with his audience.

    The entire song is about sex, and that he wants it more intense basically.
