Holy Batman, PROBLEMS. I don’t know if you recall this girl, Jenna Rose, from her earlier single My Jeans which might be worse than Friday (yeah I went there), but this is not the point. The point is that she has this lovely new video called OMG. Let’s preface this by the fact that SHE’S TWELVE. TWELVE. 12. TWELVE. And if you drop the autotune, probably not a bad singer. This song musically definitely a better effort than My Jeans, but this is not the issue.

The issue would be the sexualization of a TWELVE YEAR OLD. TWELVE. NO I WILL NOT DROP THE CAPS CAUSE THIS IS RIDICULOUS. TWELVE. Really, where are her parents? “Oh, our daughter will be head of the Preteen Boom Boom Squad wearing Victoria’s Secret lingerie while asking men to look at her and how good she looks? EXCELLENT, WHERE DO I HER SIGN UP?!”

And, obvious though it may be, it has to be said that this is not Jenna’s fault, she’s (if you didn’t catch it earlier) twelve and isn’t going to know any better. Which is why it should be our job to keep this kind of stuff from happening in the commercial music world and aiming it to a younger audience. Jenna and her friends are still kids, they can’t own their sexuality yet, they shouldn’t have one. So let’s leave the discussions of “boom booms” to an older crowd (unless you’re referring to percussive instruments, but I’m pretty sure you’re not).
