I don't get it either Ben. I think that version of that pop song doesn't redeem pop culture at all and her family dancing to glee doesn't either. "I don't care that I will never be Royal because I can be that in my dreams"? The nursery rhyme cadence is no more impressive than the contradictory lyrics. I think the writer was just emotional when she wrote this and conveyed her feeling but no reasoning to go along with it. Pop culture is pop culture. It appeals to the masses in part because it is cliche and devoid of any true viewpoint. Pop music is to art what McDonalds is to cuisine in my opinion and this slick video production by some lipsyncing teens doesn't change that.
