Grow up and get dressed

So you have pushed the boundary, may I ask what you found there?

Now I am no singer, I will belt out the odd carol, and drive my family to despair singing along to ‘Queen’ and ‘Jon Bon Jovi’. These are people who I class to be singers, there are many stretching back decades. My current favourite female singers are, Katie Melua, Adele, Hayley Westenra, Dido. From years gone past, Dusty Springfield, Shirley Bassey.  All are beautiful women, and have amazing voices. They all have or have had massive singing careers and have managed to do so while keeping their clothes on.

Recently Miley Cirus decided to leave her clean-cut Disney image behind her and tried to shock the world with a new look. So here are my two daughters aged 6 and 8 they hear about a person they remember from a kids programme, promoting clean living, honesty, and contentment with ones lot. Next thing they know is when you hit 18-20 you can stuff all that dress like a cheap prostitute, and pretend to have sex on stage while singing . Well done Miley for giving all little girls something to aim for. But don’t worry you’re not alone, the pop world is littered with cheap women who believe showing their flesh is more important than what they sing. Rhiana, Britney, Beyonce the list can go on and on. So this is just going to be a short post as an open letter. When did you decide that playing to the perversions of others became more important than the true art form of singing?
