The girls in this video are 7 years old dancing to Beyonce’s “Single Lady”. These little girls are dancing provocatively in bootie shorts and little tops. Miley Cyrus also recently came out with a new video for her song “I can’t be Tamed” and many people believe this is inappropriate for the Disney star. There’s no doubt that these young girls are talented and great dancers, but I don’t think this is the kind of dance they should be doing. I think what makes it bad is that they are wearing such provocative outfits, and if their costumes were different, it wouldn’t have been so bad.
In interviews, the parents knew what was going on, but they are proud of their children because the dance was difficult and they spent around 12 hours a week learning the routine. The parents also think that the dance was harmless and they said the children were inspired by the female chipmunks in “Alvin and the Chipmunks”. Miley Cyrus has also been criticized for her video, but in my opinion I don’t think her video is bad, and I think she is talented. She is a Disney star but she’s trying to transition out of that and I think this is a good way for her to start.
Is this the result of influence from the media and other stars? Is this the kind of things that influenced the little girls? What is your opinion on these little girls and other young stars? Are they influenced by media too much?
