2014 VMAs: Song lyric interpretations (VIDEO)
While at the 2014 MTV VMA red carpet, SheKnows caught up with several stars and asked them to interpret the lyrics to some of the hottest hit songs of the moment.
The results were super-amazing and fun.
First up, we asked MTV host and comedian Yassir Lester about the lyric line to Pharrell Williams' "Happy" that says, "Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof."
"To me it means, be open, be free, explore yourself, explore your body and your surroundings," Lester said. "Build that plane that you've been working on and learn to fly."
For Taylor Swift's "Love Story," the line we picked was, "Because you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter and my daddy said stay away from Juliette." MTV's 10 On Top host Lenay Dunn said, "It definitely means that in a past life she was a dinosaur and dinosaurs should never adventure to the end of the word!"
Next was Teen Wolf's Arden Cho, who wasn't quite sure what "but every song is like gold teeth," from Lorde's "Royals," meant.
"I don't know... I never really thought about it," Cho laughed. "I think it's like that extra bling... showing off your, what's that called... your grill! Showing off how much money you got, yeah, maybe..."
What does it mean to "go ahead and go ham sandwich?" Katie Stevens of Faking It said that Jason Derulo and Snoop Dogg's lyrics to "Wiggle Wiggle" just mean to "go and have a ham sandwich..." Simple enough.
Lastly, Faking It's Michael Willett said that Miley Cyrus' words "party ain't nothing but a party, when you party every day, it ain't nothing but a party," from her "Love, Money, Party" single are "really deep and poetic." He added they certainly make him "question" his "morals and sense of reality."
