Miley, Charlie and more!
January 14th, 2014
We’ve spent the last year denouncing Miley Cyrus and her twerking and licking and nudity and tongue and whatever else she’s been doing, but I will say this for Cyrus; at least she’s out of her teens. Sure, Miley’s got a whackload of life experiences and years ahead of her, but she’s old enough to drive, vote and drink (going on Canadian rules here, hurry up USA).
Willow Smith is only 13, and while she’s usually fully clothed, the suggestive lyrics and sultry sound of her new musical endeavors are almost more concerning than if she was just running around in a bikini on Instagram. Smith has released a new song, titled 5, with her older brother Jaden and it’s really good, which is making me feel really weird.
The song includes lyrics like “Can you see the words rolling off my tongue/ You’ve got the touch baby cuz you’re the one” and “I can taste the smoke rolling off your lips, I inhale, see the stars and then I smell your kiss”. Intense stuff for someone who hasn’t even reached high school.
Smith seems to be intent on showing that she has the maturity to handle an adult relationship, which is dangerous territory. At 13, I was proud that I could babysit three kids without setting the house on fire.
Willow’s father, actor Will Smith, famously rapped ‘Parents just don’t understand’. Maybe the Smiths should be a little less understanding and a little more strict with the ‘don’t upload sexually suggestive songs on SoundCloud’. Or maybe I’m an old fart.Tweet
