So I’m cruising NB, and I come across these pics of Rihanna and Britney Spears mugging it up at the Billboard music awards. The funny thing is that apparently moralists (ya they exist) thought the Ri Ri & Ms. Spears performance was over sexualized. According to E! Online:
Parents Television Council has once again saddled up its highest horse and decided to protest the Billboard Music Awards after deeming Rihanna and Britney Spears’ opening number particularly scandalous, but that the organization waited nearly two whole days before attempting to get their names back in the headlines.
Oops. We mean, before voicing their outrage in a widely disseminated press release.
“What happened in Vegas should have stayed in Vegas, as the saying goes,” the PTC’s president and resident wit master Tim Winter said in a statement. “It certainly has no place at 8:00 p.m. on the publicly-owned broadcast airwaves.”
“I cannot imagine what would possibly lead the ABC television network to air a profanity-laced, S&M sex show on primetime broadcast television. The overtly sexualized performance by Rihanna and Britney Spears was no accident or mishap, but a deliberate effort to target teens with images and lyrics that glamorize whips, chains and other sexual fantasies.”
Not surprisingly I kind have have the opposite view of the display. I think these chicks need to step their f*cking game up. First off, Britney Spears already did the mug it up with a broad on an award show. Secondly, the first time she did it, Britney was swabbing spit with Madonna the queen of pop. Finally, do these chicks know what’s really Gucci on the streets these days? Waka Flocka definitley has videos with girls eating each others boxes (this is after Waka poured champagne on them obviously). How you going to compete with that with this PG peck on the lips stuff? Step it up ladies! Your #SlutWave is better than this.
