“Weapons” by Ava Max

You don’t have to be famous to know that celebrities deal with a lot of negative criticism, and that’s especially true in the age of social media. And whereas the lyrics of Ava Max’s “Weapons” do not center on that reality, one can’t help but to think that they were at least inspired by it. 

What Ava is speaking to is how words can be used “as weapons”. Owing to this, she has accordingly developed a thick skin in the name of counteracting such attacks.

But it isn’t such that she’s presenting herself as being invulnerable. Rather, it’s more along the lines of the vocalist being an artist whose mission it is to promote love. So as far as the haters go, they only have two choices really. Either they’re going to utilize weaponized words in the name of starting a fight or take the more peaceful approach, as in opting to dance as the tune encourages. 

If they are to choose the former, Ava is also letting them know that at the end of the day even though their attacks may be painful, it isn’t such that they are going to knock her off course.
