THIS PRUDE Cameron wants to stop our pop stars be­ing sexy

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE - By NEIL GOOD­WIN

PRIME Min­is­ter David Cameron is call­ing for the world’s pop stars to stop be­ing so sexy!

The Tory boss reck­ons babes like Bey­once and Katy Perry flash­ing a bit of cleav­age in their mu­sic videos is well out of or­der.

So he’s ask­ing for all pro­mos that he deems raunchy to be given an 18 rat­ing to pre­vent a flash of Avril Lavinge’s bum cor­rupt­ing the na­tion.

He’s now plan­ning cri­sis talks with mu­sic bosses to force them to act vol­un­tar­ily – or he will bring in leg­is­la­tion next year.


The move comes af­ter a re­port by Chris­tian group the Mother’s Union, who are un­happy at the con­tent of videos like Ri­hanna’s S&M.

MU Chief ex­ec­u­tive, and Cameron ad­viser Reg Bai­ley, wants any web­site play­ing pop videos to have an age ver­i­fi­ca­tion sys­tem to stop un­der-18’s watch­ing them.

He said: “Par­ents are re­ally con­cerned about the in­flu­ence of mu­sic videos on chil­dren. A lot of them are very raunchy.”

But not ev­ery­one agrees, R&B singer and X fac­tor judge Kelly Row­land blames par­ents if kids watch raunchy vids. She said: “God gave us par­ents for a rea­son.”

While Rio Cara­eff, of mu­sic video web­site Vevo, said rat­ings would be ‘ bad for busi­ness’ and dif­fi­cult to en­force.
