'The Voice' coaches John Legend and Kelly Clarkson are giving the 1994 holiday classic,\u00a0"Baby It's Cold Outside"\u00a0a much needed makeover. Given how many controversies the song has had since 2004, it needed a 2019 update!\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=7MFJ7ie_yGU\n Baby it's cold outside.\n\n\n\nThe original "Baby It's Cold Outside" \n\n\n\nBefore we delve into why John and Kelly changed the lyrics, here is what the old lyrics are: \u201cI really can\u2019t stay,\u201d the Mouse sings. \u201cBut, baby, it\u2019s cold outside,\u201d he replies. Every excuse the Mouse offers to say goodnight \u2014 \u201cmy mother will worry,\u201d \u201cmy father will be pacing the floor\u201d yada yada. The Wolf counters them all.\n\n\n\n\u201cI\u2019ll hold your hands they\u2019re just like ice,\u201d he sings, and then later, \u201cListen to the fireplace roar.\u201d At times, the Mouse doesn\u2019t resist his temptations, agreeing to \u201cjust half a drink more,\u201d but for every inch she gives, he takes two. The song never specifies that does she even want to stay? Maybe she is playing hard to get? Or worse of all, is she giving in to her relentlessness persistence because she has no other choice?\n\n\n\nWhich brings back the topic of consent on the table and the song has come into intense scrutiny. The debate got further heated when\u00a0last holiday season a radio station in Cleveland announced that it\u00a0would not play the song anymore. Soon after, many other radio shows follow suit!\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/B4KogwllGrD\/\n\n\n\n\nJohn and Kelly's "Baby It's Cold Outside" \n\n\n\n"Hold on, hold on," Legend said in his Vanity Fair interview, before explaining that he and Kelly will not sing the original words. "Insecure" writer and actress Natasha Rothwell helped him change out some of the more questionable lyrics.\n\n\n\nFor example: \n\n\n\nKelly:\u00a0\u201cWhat will my friends think...\u201d\n\n\n\nJohn:\u00a0\u201cI think they should rejoice"\n\n\n\nKelly:\u00a0\u201c...if I have one more drink?\u201d\n\n\n\nJohn:\u00a0\u201cIt\u2019s your body, and your choice.\u201d\n\n\n\nThere are also lyrics like these that further the message the former song missed.\n\n\n\nKelly: \u201cI really can\u2019t stay." \n\n\n\nJohn: "Baby it\u2019s cold outside"\n\n\n\nKelly: "I\u2019ve gotta go away." \n\n\n\nJohn: "I can call you a ride."\n\n\n\nKelly: "This evening has been"\n\n\n\nJohn: "So glad that you dropped in"\n\n\n\nKelly: "So very nice"\n\n\n\nJohn: "Time spent with you is paradise"\n\n\n\nKelly: "My mother will start to worry" \n\n\n\njohn: "I\u2019ll call a car and tell \u2019em to hurry.\u201d\n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=tRjfq6QUjGM\n John Legend - Bring Me Love (Live from A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy) \n\n\n\nThe three other new tracks include \u201cThis Christmas,\u201d \u201cMy Favorite Things\u201d and \u201cChristmas in New Orleans.\u201d\n\n\n\nDo you think we needed a new song or it is about time somebody switched the lyrics?
