It sounds like Miley Cyrus is getting another finger wag! And not a foam one either!
On her Facebook page this weekend, Eurythmics rocker and diva pioneer Annie Lennox had some not-so-thinly veiled words about Mileybird's recent controversy. She 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..
I believe in freedom of speech and expression, but the market forces don't give a toss about the notion of boundaries. As long as there's booty to make money out of, it will be bought and sold. It's depressing to see how these performers are so eager to push this new level of low. Their assumption seems to be that misogyny- utilised and displayed through oneself is totally fine, as long as you are the one creating it. As if it's all justified by how many millions of dollars and U tube hits you get from behaving like pimp and prostitute at the same time. It's a glorified and monetized form of self harm."
Annie may not have said Miley's name, but she's right- we do know the ones she's talking about.
As if Sinead O'Connor warning Miley of prostitution wasn't enough, now she has Annie Lennox saying she's the pimp too??
Well, it's like they say. Some of them want to use you, some of them want to be used by you. Everybody's looking for something.
So who is Annie Lennox to disagree?
