The subject of pop star's skimpy wardrobe seems to be a favourite theme for the singer currently, on her Facebook page Lennox wrote: "I have to say that I'm disturbed and dismayed by the recent spate of overtly sexualised performances and videos. You know the ones I'm talking about. It seems obvious that certain record companies are peddling highly styled pornography with musical accompaniment. As if the tidal wave of sexualised imagery wasn't already bombarding impressionable young girls enough."
Listen we all have regrets and I think we all go through a phase where we're so concerned about getting adult experiences in our lives that we try to indicate all our maturity in the snap of a bra strap. Which of course in turn denotes immaturity because those of us what are mature (or maturer) have done it before. Worn the unflattering corset top with bootleg jeans, shared the packet of cigarettes and vomited the cheap vodka.
nobody ever died from cracking out a tit.
I know we allegedly and apparently far more worthily worry because these young stars really have the money to screw themselves up. But nobody ever died from cracking out a tit.
Miley Cyrus was a child star, a child that portrayed unattainable (unless you are Miley Cyrus) childhood of clear skin and endless wardrobe. It's not as though she whapped a bap out: MILLIONAIRE. It's plausible that to Cyrus this is simply another personna.
Rather than the pleas for women such as Rihanna and Miley to 'respect themselves', I wonder if it wouldn't be more helpful if we respected them?
