When it comes to pop music today, I’ll admit that “showing more and covering less” seems to be the selling point for young artists like Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and so many more female performers. Even though their music doesn’t even appeal to me, I still pay attention to what’s going on in the entertainment world because I have two young children who are going to soon ask a lot of questions.
You can only shield your children from so much, but eventually they are going to find out that the wholesome girl who used to play Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel is now posting completely naked selfies of herself on her social networking accounts. It’s almost hard to believe that we are talking about the same person here.
I mean, did you see the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night? I only saw a few tidbits, but it literally left me speechless!
With that being said, there are plenty of parents out there who think today’s pop music has gone so extreme that they would rather not have their children listen or watch music videos on television. One of those moms is British television host Myleene Klaas, who says that despite being a bikini model herself, she thinks that children are definitely “oversexualized” in society today. She has two daughters, Ava, 8, and Hero, 4.
According to the Daily Mail she said, “I don’t let them watch pop videos because there is so much in them they shouldn’t see yet. I would rather explain things to them in their own time than have them watch someone on TV with their crutch out, legs akimbo.”
And to be honest with you, I totally agree. I’m sure there will be a time in which my children will learn who Lady Gaga is, but for now I would rather have them watch Peppa Pig or idolize Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony. It’s not that I want to keep my kids in a bubble, but I just want them to be children enjoying their childhood without too many adult-like influences in their world.
