Former Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm has called on female pop stars such as Rihanna to have “more dignity” and stop being so overtly sexual.
Mel C, widely known as Sporty Spice, says she has banned her 5-year-old daughter, Scarlet, from seeing images of Rihanna because of their provocative nature.
“There is little footage of Rihanna that I’m happy for her to see. It’s a shame that a talented, successful woman expresses herself in such an overtly sexual way,” she said.
Speaking to the Radio Times, the singer raised concerns about “society’s obsession with celebrity.”
“It’s vulgar and narcissistic, and I worry about how it affects young girls,” Chisholm commented. “There are some great artists out there, but sometimes we could just do with a bit more dignity.”
The former Spice Girl urged female pop stars to be mindful of their responsibility to young fans.
The singer’s comments come in the wake of the prime minister’s announcement in August that online music videos will be given age ratings in order to protect children.
