Annie Lennox Throws Shade At Miley Cyrus: “Behaving Like Pimp & Prostitute At The Same Time”

“I have to say that I’m disturbed and dismayed by the recent spate of overtly sexualized performances and videos. You know the ones I’m talking about. It seems obvious that certain record companies are peddling highly styled pornography with musical accompaniment. As if the tidal wave of sexualized imagery wasn’t already bombarding impressionable young girls enough. I believe in freedom of speech and expression, but the market forces don’t give a toss about the notion of boundaries. As long as there’s booty to make money out of, it will be bought and sold. It’s depressing to see how these performers are so eager to push this new level of low.Their assumption seems to be that misogyny — utilized and displayed through oneself is totally fine, as long as you are the one creating it. As if it’s all justified by how many millions of dollars and YouTube hits you get from behaving like pimp and prostitute at the same time. It’s a glorified and monetized form of self harm.”

’80s British singer Annie Lennox from The Eurythmics wrote a post on Facebook this Saturday clearly directed at Miley Cyrus (“You know the ones I’m talking about”). A skeptical Lennox hopped aboard the same bandwagon as Sinead O’Connor, who last week alleged that Cyrus is being exploited by the record industry and needs to have better handlers. Cyrus was rudely dismissive of O’Connor’s open letter last week, comparing the singer who has struggled with mental illness to Amanda Bynes.

It was classy of Lennox to write these comments without calling out the twerking singer directly — but nevertheless, she found herself adding more commentary on Sunday:

Gwyneth Paltrow Blasted For Selling Little Girls’ Bikinis Over GOOP

gwyneth paltrow kids bikinis

To tell you the truth, I don’t really give a shit that Gwyneth Paltrow is selling bikinis for little girls through her website, GOOP. Gwyneth Paltrow is also the person who suggested your spring wardrobe could use a $1,615 black skirt. She’s not really the arbiter of sensibility or good taste, no matter how many thousand-dollar clothing items she convinces you that you just have to have. The bikini in question is a $45 miniature version for girls (pictured at right) that matches an adult design, all of which were created by designer Melissa Obadash for GOOP. I do think that bikinis are too grown up for five-year-olds; I also think that this battle against the sexualization of young girls has already been lost. Bikinis for little girls aren’t going to go anywhere.  I wouldn’t buy a bikini for my own hypothetical kid because I just think one-pieces are more appropriate, but Gwynnie and her GOOPies can do what they want — and expect the rest of us to laugh at them.
