"Look, Mama, she's naked!"
JewishWorld Review ^ | Nov. 15, 2002 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 11/15/2002 11:55:10 AM PST by Coeur de Lion

I'm waiting in line at the newsstand with my very observant two-year-old daughter, and she is pointing to Rolling Stone magazine.

On the cover is 21-year-old singer Christina Aguilera, sprawled on a red velvet blanket. She is wearing black leather boots, black nail polish, one studded bracelet, ratty hair extensions, and as my child has so innocently noted, nothing else. Aguilera's privates are strategically hidden behind a guitar; her backside is tastelessly, tritely, exposed.

The article lays bare all the silly, sordid details of Aguilera's new album (appropriately titled "Stripped"), her new hardcore music video (titled "Dirrty," with an extra "r" thrown in for, you know, edge) and her transformation from bubble-gum, Mickey Mouse Club member to foul-mouthed vixen. The young woman who once sweetly warbled the theme song to the Disney movie, "Mulan," now grunts and writhes in a thong and kneepads, thrusting herself onto every moving object in her way, while "singing" the following "lyrics:"

Ah, dirrty (dirrty) Filthy (filthy) Nasty, you nasty (yeah) Too dirrty to clean my act up If you ain't dirrty You ain't here to party (woo!)"

DJ's spinning (show your hands) Let's get dirrty (that's my jam) I need that, uh, to get me off Sweat until my clothes come off

In a pathetic attempt to prove that this is not just a made-for-TV act, Aguilera has been spotted around New York City reenacting her "Dirrty" video in popular nightclubs. The New York Post's gossip page even launched a "Christina Aguilera Skank Watch," which tracked her recent visits to local stripclubs, where she "got lap dances" "fondled the breasts of a buxom stripper," and "was spotted cuddling with some sexy female friends at a "Drunk Love" party.

"F*** the pretty," Aguilera retorts when asked by the Rolling Stone reporter about her tamer, younger years as a teen idol.

"F*** the dessert -- where's the tequila?" she exclaims apropros of nothing.

Aguilera's other favorite f-word is "flava." As in: "I want the boys with the flava." Explaining why she doesn't usually date "white boys," Aguilera expounds with faux ghetto flair: "He's got to have some flava and edge to him. I don't discriminate because of color. I actually dated my first one recently. I put some cream in my coffee." Flava lover Aguilera herself is paler than vanilla ice cream when not slathered in coffee-colored, self-tanning lotion.

"I don't see anything wrong with being comfortable with my own skin," Aguilera snaps defensively, as she strikes another gangsta pose and shows off her ridiculous body piercings-which Rolling Stone has painstakingly diagrammed for the masses.

As I am returning the trashy magazine to the newsstand rack, my toddler chirps in again: "Mama, where's her shirt?" I answer: "Her mama forgot to tell her to put one on." My daughter, naturally, has a follow-up question:

"Well, where's her mama?!"

That's exactly the question I ask myself whenever we encounter some young Aguilera look-a-like and her friends hanging out at the mall with their thong straps glittering out in the open, their hip-huggers succumbing perilously to the forces of gravity, their noses and eyebrows and tongues marred with metal, and their faces plastered with red light district makeup.

Where were their mamas-and dadas-to teach them that slutty is not sexy? Gutter talk is for vagrants, not for young ladies who want respect from the world. Promiscuity isn't a sign of maturity. It's a sign of self-loathing. Being "comfortable in your own skin" doesn't require having to bare every last inch of it in public.

From Madonna, to Britney and Christina, to the under-dressed teens at the mall, legions of girls have been raised to believe that letting it all hang out is the only true path to womanhood. Christina Aguilera is a sad symptom of this cultural zeitgeist. Stripped of her inhibitions and sense of self-restraint, it's much too late for mama to put her peep-show-profiteering daughter's shirt back on.

This naked truth cannot be disguised: The era of radical feminist sexual liberation has produced a generation of shameless skanks.

You can pretty much tell how much talent a female singer really has by how many of their clothes they can leave on. You can't really tell one pop singer's voice from another's, they all sound the same so it's who shows the most skin and wiggles the most provocatively. They're basically all strippers who sing a bit.

Will there be any young men who are worthy of a decent girl by the time she's ready for marriage, or will they all be looking for skanks?

My husband and I are trying very hard to make sure that there are at least two of them (mine are 6 and 5, though, so your daughters will just have to wait...)

If you don't mind the expense, Land's End, LL Bean and Talbot's Kids all carry very nice clothing for girls. Shoes, too.


PS: I know how you feel about trying to buy decent clothes; it's just as hard for the boys.

I shop for my girls at the secondhand store, with surprising success. (I also sew, less successfully ...).

My 4yo is gorgeous, and my 2yo has amazing blond curls. Maybe we can set something up ...

My boys are like bookends: Billy (6) is tall and lean with dark hair and eyes the color of fresh-baked gingersnaps. He has two speeds: 100 mph and comatose.

John (5) is going to be our strong, silent type. Blonde, he has eyes so light blue they appear silver (like moi). He is nowhere near as fast as his brother, but I advise Billy to be nice to him anyway, as if John ever catches him, Billy's a dead man. LOL

We should make a date (in 15 years or so...)

They sound like wonderful boys! We have a Billy, too, 8 years old, faster than fast and twice as skinny. He wants to be a farmer when he grows up. Tom, age 6, will be seeking early admission to the Marines, if he survives that long. Last week he decided he was a plant-eating dinosaur and ate some shrubbery in the back yard; made himself sick for a whole day.

Keep us in mind when your guys graduate from college!

Christina has a good voice, she has a Grammy and really doesn't need to do this..same with Leann. But in order to sell millions upon millions of records you need 'buzz,' hype and controversy. If this was Britney or Shania I could understand but for singers who are actually talented to start doing this is a bad sign.

Yeah, it's pretty sad. At the risk of sounding like a NAG, you don't see male singers having to do this in order to create buzz. Can you imagine, say, Alan Jackson wearing nothing but a hat, or Bono talking about how much he likes sex? And God help us if Keith Richards decides to pose nude!

Actually I kind of agree. Sharika, Michelle Branch, Pink and the new up and coming 'fake rock' chicks are dimwits but at least they can play instruments and write songs

I think Leann can come back from this, the country music world is pretty forgiving.

It seems like the men are following the ladies trend with the fake rock vibe..all of the new bands like Puddle of Mudd sound like they are doing Karoke versions of NIrvana

Gad, I hope you're right. But I have my doubts. I've read interviews with her where she states that when she was younger and her career was being run by her father, she "felt like she was going insane".

I've also seen her in videos on MTV where she is wearing these very revealing outfits. Now there's nothing really wrong with that per sé, but it seems to me, an outside observer, that she is making a move to cross over or move away from her country music roots and is being led astray by those that are controlling her career these days.

This girl captured my heart the very second I heard her sing a cover of Patsy Cline's "Blue". She has amazing talent and doesn't need all these other trappings. I hope you're right and she keeps her head while she grows out of it.
