"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.

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.

Yes, she's very talented; but, I think that she and many of her peers live in dread of being the next Tiffany or the next Debbie Gibson. Most child stars are out of a job once they grow up. Generating that "buzz" can get the over the hump and into a second career. The problem is that the new career could be fatally tied to the buzz producing image. Aguilera risks being sold as a slutty tart and nothing else. The odds are pretty slim that she'll be able to continually re-invent herself as Madonna does. Once she gets to old for the part, she's finished.

These girls; Shakira, Christina, Modana, Lopez, Diaz,.....All are bitches trading on their sexuality.

Shakira is incredibility talented, she writes her own songs in Spanish and English, and she has got a great voice. And say what you will about Madonna, but at least she writes most of her own songs.

Leann is a great looking girl with a great voice, I hope she does not sell out to the Music/Porn industry.

Too late. She has sold her soul. Sad to say that it looks as if she believed what was being whispered in her ear. She is now being "marketed" and she is now "product".

When she is all used up, she'll be tossed aside just like all the others. More's the pity. She looked as if she had the potential to avoid the trap.

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...)

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!

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!

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.

"I still can't believe the lyrics for 'Come on Over' were on a children's sing -a-long CD."

Why?
I cannot understand your saying that, ewing.
Who'd you think *they'd* try to "reach" as they set-out to groom & nurture their future "customers," anyway??
You?
Me?

We'd not just have flashed 'em our middle digit; we'd have done to 'em much worse...kept our dough in our wallets.
No...since 9 of 10 "parents" are doing any & everything but "raising" their offspring?
Those young minds make the *perfect* -- unprotected -- target.

"I am no prude, but who made that decision..."

Well, let us just say the brainiacS behind this harlot & all the others before, during & to come *probably* are manifestations of white, male, Liberals & leave it go at that, shall we?

"I would be aghast as a parent!"

Sure; but, then again??
You'd then BE a, "parent."

...subtle difference, eh?

Puttanesca (Italian for 'ho) skanky sluts like Christina Aguilera do not age well. In 30 years she will look like a fireplug with cellulite. But with an even fouler, more low-life mouth. And a dead space where there is supposed to be a soul.

Your call.

I totally agree with you. We have 5 children who range in age from 20 to 9. I am having a bear of a time finding age appropriate clothing for my 9 year old daughter. It is really hard to find shoes that aren't platforms or don't have high heels. I just want a basic pair of little girl maryjanes for her. I have complained to various store managers about this. I think that these stores should just rename themselves "Sluts R Us." There is no way I am going to let my daughter dress as a pedophile's fantasy. I guess it is time to pull out the sewing machine. Thank goodness I have kept the old patterns. What is really nice is that my daughter has a great fashion sense in which she is very concerned about dressing modestly. I really hope she stays that way. Thanks for listening to my rant. Take care and God bless.

I've been developing, over the years, my own list of Hollywierd skanks. In no particular order of dishonor, those young (or not-so-young) ladies who do not, shall we say, bring great respect unto the female of the speciies includes, but is not limited to:

Pamela Anderson
Carmen Electra
Elizabeth Hurley
Madonna Ciccone (Everyone has a last name, dammit!)
Jennifer Lopez
Liz Taylor
The Gabor Sisters
Jane Fonda
The Barbie Twins
Melanie Griffith
Meg Ryan
Cher (and what the hell IS her last name, anyway?)
Cameron Diaz
Whitney Houston
LaToya Jackson
Anna Nicole Smith
Marylin Monroe
Christina Aguilera
Joan Crawford
Susan Sarandon
Drew Barrymore
Ingrid Bergman
Roseanne Barr Arnold
Barbara Streisand
Feel free to add as necessary, and to debate the entries. I was planning to post a thread on this, but this is as good a time as any.

Some ways that a young(or not) lady might make the list: Have a personal life which COMPLETELY overshadows her professional life; Have little measurable talent; Have few marriages last longer than one year; Have a LOT of marriages; Continue to have children despite having nothing but chaos in her personal life; Choose men who complement them( a relationship with either Dennis Rodman or Tommy Lee is a sure ride to the Skank List); Have several, highly publicized, drug binges; use plastic surgery to enhance her laughable self-esteem; and FINALLY, act like it's HER who is the "victim" of all of the above.

Note, there are no (admitted) porn stars on the Skank List...this is because whatever their faults, porn starlets lack the insane hipocrasy of the typical Skank. They ADMIT to being exactly what they are. Furthermore, one former wife of Tommy Lee has evaded the list: Heather Locklear. This is because she actually has built a career without continually mentioning her ex-husband.

Some of these women DO have talent, no doubt. However, that talent is eclipsed by their VERY public "private" lives. As such, part of their celebrity, FOREVER, will be their legacy as Skanks. Seriously, how many on the above list would have become famous, save for their association with famous men? One? Two at the most?

I make absolutely NO judgement about these women's good or evil, or whether or not they are bad people(their legions of exes are far better qualified for that work than I), this is only for the fun of it. The ludicrous way these women have conducted their lives, free from consequences that those of us who work for a living face, is itself worthy of some fun, is it not? After all, it is THEY, not us, who continually place their private(s) into the public sphere. The least we can do is ridicule them unmercifully. Besides, many of them are simply annoying no matter what they do.

And ladies, worry not. There are MORE than enough MALE Skanks to fill a few lists...we'll get to them soon, okay? Anyhoo, there it is. Have at it, FReepers!
