Singer Catey Shaw's "Brooklyn Girls" Song Goes Viral: Brooklynites Are Not Impressed

Pin It
Aspiring singer Catey Shaw was probably super excited when her song "Brooklyn Girls" went viral. That is, until she started getting a lot of hate over it.

Catey lives in Brooklyn, but she's actually not originally from the popular NYC borough. Given that she's from Virginia, we get how moving to Brooklyn would have been a bit of a culture shock for her, but does that give her the right to release a song that kind of slams it? Brooklyn natives don't think so.

"Brooklyn girls, when they walk in, they rule the world. Brooklyn girls, tough and pretty, break the rules," she sings in front of some less-than-appealing backdrops like graffiti-ridden walls, angry-looking women with shaved heads and piercings everywhere. It doesn't paint a very glamorous picture of the city, let's just put it that way.

Despite the backlash from Brooklynites, Catey is ignoring the naysayers and standing the song and video, tweeting, "This is overwhelming and I love you all so much."
