LISTEN: John Legend New WOKE "Baby It's Cold Outside" Remake

Baby it’s woke outside.

John Legend and Kelly Clarkson released a remake of the classic Christmas tune “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” with new “consent-friendly” lyrics Friday — andt he remake is already receiving a chilly reception.

 

Monday on "The Talk" host Sharon Osbourne sounds off on John Legend and Kelly Clarkson releasing a new version of Dean Martin's 1953 hit "Baby It's Cold Outside." Although the melody will remain the same, Legend altered some of the lyrics due to controversy associated with the #metoo movement.

"What would John Legend do, if in 40 years, if somebody wanted to... re-record one of his songs, and there was some group that found it offensive, and somebody just went, 'Oh, I can change the lyrics on that. It's, to me, like a master painting," says Osbourne and continues, "It's a piece of art... to change an innocent lyric, to what is it, 'your mind and your body?' What the hell are you on? That's ridiculous. I have to tell you, I love John Legend. I love John Legend's wife, his family. He's an amazing artist that I really respect. Why do you do this? That's not right. The thing is, if you don't like the song, don't record it."
