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?

Honestly I commented on this post a while back saying I liked ATLA but I feel like The Legend of Korra had more depth to it and was definitely meant for older teens, which is why I feel like a lot of you like it better. But the finale put me at a tie. I love both the shows equally.

Usually I see them wear our school uniform. But whenever they get a chance to wear any colored dress to school, they wear jeggings and sleeve-less/half-sleeved tops. And their HAIR, OMG! They do SO MANY STUPID STYLES, even when they wear their school uniform, their hair is just in SO MANY STYLES!!
