They should change the name of the show to AWKWARD! With Kelly and Michael!

Charlotte Church is not done slamming pop stars.
Now the Welsh singer is gunning for Katy Perry!
"I don't want my little girl to see a Katy Perry video. I like Katy Perry; she's funny—I'm not fussed on her music—but I don't want my little girl to hold her up as an ideal. I think a lot of what she does is marketed to children. All that candy stuff [in California Gurls]. If [my daughter] had seen that she would have loved it, sweets everywhere and then there she is—this naked chick!"
Just because kids would be attracted to certain aspects of something doesn't mean it's marketed to them. Katy Perry is healthy and successful- but is she really too sexy to be a good role model?
Unlike Katy, Charlotte thinks Miley is actually too young to know any better. She says:
"It's so obvious this young lady has a skewed perspective because of what she's been through. All she knows is to sell and be sold. This sounds patronizing but in a couple of years she'll change her tune. I went through a similar-ish thing; not to the depths she is taking it to. But it's exhibitionism. As a teenager, you're really egocentric. Why would you give a f**k about the rest of society?"
Well, she's right about one thing. Miley certainly doesn't seem to give a f**k- at least not about what people think.
But Miley isn't a teenager. She's a grown woman making her own decisions about what to do with her body. Is it really fair for Charlotte to judge what's going on inside her head?
