Put Some Clothes On Girlz!

It seems like every time we turn around there's a new girl group in town. My problem isn't that they're a dime a dozen - it's that with the arrival of a new group, means the half tops keep gettin' shorter and shorter and the waistbands keep gettin' lower and lower. The next thing ya know they'll be popping up in skimpy bikinis.

Lots of singers like Janet Jackson and Madonna wear skimpier clothing but they're much older than these girls. I don't have a problem with them but I do have a problem when female singers as young as 12 years old are barely wearing any clothes. What kind of message are they sending to their young fans? Answer: that it's cool to wear no clothing. When Madonna started her music career she was in her early 20s not early teens and even then she wore more clothing than most of the teens do now. And if anyone's ever pushed the envelope from the beginning, it's been Madonna.

When young girls go out and buy the same skimpy outfits as their fave singers we can't put all the blame on the musicians. I think, as role models, they should give their outfits a little more thought but ultimately parents have the final say about the way you dress when you leave the house - and so do you. If you're wearing a half top and butt-crack jeans at 12 you are attracting attention from men. Grown men (like your Dad's age.) That's kinda gross when you think about it.

Although I don't completely blame the music groups for the affect they're having on young girls I do hold them partially responsible. I think they should wear clothing that's less revealing. They can still look great by leaving a little something to the imagination. Mandy Moore is one of the few younger singers who hasn't compromised her morals and hasn't dressed in an inappropriate way - yet she always looks good. A lot of artists could definitely learn a thing or two from Mandy. She's still stylish - she's just not exposing herself like the rest of her peers (or younger.)

Young musicians need to think about the way they project themselves to their fans. They need to realize that everything they do is being watched and copied. I'm not asking that they bundle up from head to toe. I'm just asking that they put SOME clothes on. CDs with explicit lyrics must be slapped with a parental advisory sticker. When are they gonna put some boundaries on the dress code?

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
