Leona Lewis has joined Rashida Jones and Jennifer Lawrence in chastising the girls of twerk!
The Christmas, With Love singer has some very specific complaints about Miley Cyrus and Rihanna's oversexualized style.
She says it's bad for little girls, especially the ones she helps to raise! She says:
"Being sexual and in your face is not great for girls who are quite young. It depends what environment you’re brought up in, but personally I've got a god-daughter and little nieces and I don’t want them to see me acting crazy and naked in my music videos.
But then when my little god-daughter is watching videos and doing all these moves, I say to my best friend 'you need to turn that off. She shouldn’t be watching that.'
So it’s up to the parents as well to be able to control what their children are watching. It’s like, 'don’t twerk, you’re a six year old. Stop it.'"
Leona may think they're making some bad choices, but she does want to make it clear she doesn't bear any ill will towards RiRi or Mileybird. She says:
"You can’t blame those girls, who are being young and sometimes dumb. They’re just expressing themselves how they want to.
Girls are not perfect, we all make mistakes."
That seems like a fair position. There's room in the world for all types of expression, including the overtly sexual- as long as the viewer is of proper age?
What do U think? Are Miley and Rihanna too intense for young girls?
