American Idol’s Catie Turner Debuts New Song “Pity” (VIDEO)

Catie Turner Pity Music Video

American Idol finalist Catie Turner proves that old adage that bathrooms offer the best acoustics, as she performs an original song “Pity” in her tiny hotel washroom for a Youtube video. “Tour rehearsal life is crazy!” reads the title card before we see a smiling Catie sitting on the floor, acoustic guitar in hand.

And once again, the singer, who finished in the Top 7 on this year’s ABC Idol reboot, proves that she is a songwriting talent to be reckoned with. Although Catie makes sure to mention the lyrics are about ONE guy she knows, and Not All Men, the words serve as a perfect description of toxic masculinity in general.

Catie posted all the lyrics on Youtube, but here’s a snip.

Your masculinity is so fragile I could break you with a tap
The only time ill get on my knees for you is to sweep up your fragments like glass
It’s a pity your mother has to see you like this
And it’s a pity any form of criticism gets you pissed
It’s a pity you have an insufferable god complex
It’s a pity

Not only is Catie a clever lyricist, but she knows her way around a catchy melody. At the VERY LEAST somebody’s gotta serve up a publishing deal for this woman.

The tour of which she speaks is American Idol Live! featuring Catie and her fellow Top 7 contestants, including winner Maddie Poppe, runner-up Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Gabby Barrett, Cade Foehner, Michael J. Woodard and Jurnee. Season 8 winner Kris Allen is also along for the ride. Tour kicks off on July 11.
