Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - STYLE NOTEBOOK -

Maybe it all started with Mi­ley Cyrus, right, and her re­volt­ing per­for­mance at the MTV VMAs. But it’s sad, and tir­ing, to see com­pet­i­tive out-porning be­com­ing the norm from many of the world’s most suc­cess­ful artists. It’s just not sexy. It’s not even shock­ing in a Madonna-ish sort of way. Bey­once now seems to feel the need to outdo her younger peers in their re­lent­lessly over­sexed pre­sen­ta­tions of them­selves. Take her Par­ti­tion video, in which she pole dances in a G-string for her hus­band, Jay-Z — when did it be­come nor­mal to watch the pri­vate go­ings-on of a mar­ried cou­ple? Not to be out­done, for her New Year’s Eve Las Ve­gas show, Brit­ney pa­raded her boyfriend around on a lead. Ri­hanna porni­fies pretty much any­thing she does; her Pour it Up video was ac­tu­ally banned shortly af­ter it was re­leased. The grind­ing. The nu­dity. The lap-dancer-style chore­og­ra­phy. Turned on? Ac­tu­ally, we're a bit hor­ri­fied. Put it away, ladies.
