"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.

She isn't but you could be forgiven for thinking that. She does sound a bit like a shrew here. I think Michele should stick to politics. Calling people names is not becoming of her.

Well I wonder what we can expect, when girls from the age of 8-10 on walk around with text printed across the butts of their shorts... I mean what is up with that? And more often than not, its something sports/school or team related, that just blows my mind. Teenage boys are gonna look at teenage girls butts, no matter what, there is no need to draw attention to it like that.. its not cute, and I'll be damned if my daughter ever goes out in public like that.

So what are you doing looking? Are you a pervert?

"A trivial babe on a trivial magazine is not a subject of Ms. Malkin!"
____________________

I don't think she's concerned about this particular skank. I think she's pointing out the influences on our children and our culture--that's a subject worthy of her writing talents.

I haven't heard it put any better: "The era of radical feminist sexual liberation has produced a generation of shameless skanks."

Keep saying it like it is!

And whether I am a pervert or not, depends on which ex girlfriend you talk to.

Riiiiight, don't look from the perspective of the one wearing the shorts having any responsibility for the slutty look, or the parents (maybe absentee parents is more like it), or the degradation caused by liberalization of our societal norms. Riiiight, don't hold the wearer responsible.

Sarah Michelle Gellar who plays Buffy on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" did a skit of her on SNL recently. The satire was she was shooting a music video and see kept having it reshot because she just wasn't nasty enough.

I don't care if she has a good voice or not. She is prostituting herself trying to morph like Madonna into what she thinks is every man's fantasy woman just to survive in the music business. Only Madonna, despite her minimal talent, is shrewd enough to know when the party's over.
When Mariah Carey first appeared on the scene, she was intriguing. She was attractive and incredibly talented. She, too, has become a second-rate diva who finds it necessary to flaunt it when all she has to do is simply sing to sell records...CD's (I'm aging myself.)
This gangsta craze is what turns teens on. So, I guess Aguilera still has a little mileage, but her time is limited unless she steps back and takes a good look in the mirror. Britney's already toast. And so is this Shakira who has one ability if she fails as a diva, she can sell hula hoops.

"There's not enough money in that, and there are too many other singers who do already do it better. "

Who? If that were true I think I would have heard of them. She could have the best voice I have ever heard. Not only quality, but expressiveness. She has real talent. To say I was surprised is an understatement. If you get a chance listen to 'Impossible' from her latest album. It blew me away.

Christina is probably being heavily influenced by her record label. They apparently think that they need to package (market) her this way to differentiate her from others. I think they're making a terrible mistake. If she didn't have the voice, maybe she needs all the fake packaging to have a chance. But she does have the voice. For heaven's sake, having the voice with no "edge" certainly hasn't hurt Celine Dion any.
I think just because Madonna has been so successful at selling records by reinventing herself so many times and by shocking people, others think they can do the same. Only thing is, Madonna actually had great songs too.

Here's the point: Real musical talent is a rare gift. Undressing for the boys is common, cheap and easy. Do stars really elevate themselves in their careers when they reduce themselves to the lowest common denominator? No... as history shows abundantly, it's the beginning of the end.

In this instance...good riddance.

I dunno, you have to listen to Agulara's songs that don't get airplay on the radio, if you want to hear her true range and ability, it is incredible. Of course those songs don't get airplay, just the pop ones make the radio.

Malkin is a wonderful writer who pulls no punches. There is a writer named James Woodhill who uses the term "thong feminism" to describe this phenomenom. Getting off topic a bit, Woodhill's idea is that we should deliberately export what he describes as our "degenerate popular culture" to the Islamic world to poison them completely from within. He wants to take over Iraq, force "family planning" services (abortion on demand. contraception, no-fault divorce, etc.) broadcast MTV plus reruns of "Ally McBeal", "Sex in the City" and, to use his term "let sex, drugs, and rock n' roll do their work." He contends that we (the West) will have won when the Muslim men are faced with "their 14-year old daughters screwing their boyfriends in the hot tub" and being able to do absolutely nothing about it.

LOL! Another one I've heard of but never seen (the TV series that is- I think SM Gellar is a blonde is she not?).

I don't have a TV and live in another country. Until recently I didn't even know what Rush Limbaugh looked like! From most of the things I hear- I'm not missing much.

I take it this Aguilera person is supposed to be raunchy?

You can be excused for thinking all young girls grow up to be sluts. You are from jersey after all. ; )

But if you leave the coast for a while you will find out most young ladies are just that, young ladies.

The entertainment media has never accurately protrayed American values or beliefs. That's why when wholsome films or artist do well, it's a shock to the entertainment media. The entertainment media is out of touch with America.

No. That is NOW. It goes this way: conservative women have no problem with attractiveness and having men like them. They do have a problem with skanky HOs. NOW, however, is a bunch of bitter hags who go out of their way to look like a man and hate that men would even dare think of sex and females at the same time.

The problem with going "all out" to get attention, is it works to get attention at first, but once its been out there, its passe. Oh, so that's what her boobs look like...

I am depressed that Agulara has decided to take such an overt path, she's from generally conservative part of PA.. Her mother does not come across as absentee, she knows deep down what she is doing is not right, I am pretty sure of that. She's either on a campaign to raise her awareness to improve sales, or she has started down the drug/hedonist path... either way its disappointing.

She does have talent, for crying out loud, she could belt out a song sounding like a 20 year old at age 10... there are people out there with no talent and have to make it up with spectacle... Agulara is not one of these, its disappointing to say the least...
