Whilst eating lunch yesterday, I looked back at comments I received about the "Dance Immodesty" commentary in regards to a May dance concert for a major dance studio in the region where I live.It did not strike to me about the music as much until a commentary on another board discussed the "worst songs ever".
While reflecting on some of the routines from the teens, with the immodest routines, the song used in one of the "bra-and-panties" routines ("Candyman") came from 26-year old Christina Aguilera, and this artist has been around for much of the teens’ lives, as they have listened to her tunes throughtout their formative years, including the raunchiest pop tunes of the late 1990's-early 2000's. Her raunch is nasty -- I've often said, with apologies to Mike Joy, that she has deserved a trip to the Oval Office for consultation. I'll never forget when the MTV Video Music Awards of 2003 appeared, she was involved in the lip-lock that sent me pleading "Britney Spears, Madonna, and Christina Aguilera have been called to the Big Red Truck."
While the song is from that artist's most recent album, what does it say about these teens when they choose songs and costumes based on the popularity of today's smut peddlers?
