Stop Expecting Pop Stars To Be Role Models For Your Kids

By  | 

Can we save the outrage for songs that actually deserve it? Songs that minimize sexual harassment and advocate drugging women for sex? Outrage there, I understand. But getting outraged by the image of a pop star pretend-scrubbing a floor in a housewife get-up is just ridiculous.

I’ll save the effort of banning my kids from watching harmless videos and concentrate on teaching them the differences between fantasy and reality. The song isn’t sending a message of abuse or inequality, it’s merely singing about how one woman wants to be treated by her man. Let’s all get a grip.
