Mike Stock, the music producer, has criticised modern pop music for over-sexualising its material

Mr Stock, 58, whose work as part of Stock, Aitken and Waterman was part of the success of 80s artists including Kylie Minogue, said modern stars such as Lady Gaga and Britney Spears were too sexual for a two-year-old.
He insisted that he was not behind the times but said it was important to hold onto society's values.
Mr Stock said: "These days you can't watch modern stars - like Britney Spears or Lady Gaga - with a two-year-old.

I personally was thrilled to hear someone on the inside speaking out, especially when you see the way the industry has gone in the last 10 years. It's always been a good tool to program kids and with the power in the wrong hands there's no more Public Enemy, just Lady Gaga with her rubbish. Although i've no doubts this will be forgotten about tomorrow and poor old Mike's career will take a turn for the worse.

As much as i'd love to pretend to not know what you're talking about unfortunately I do, i'm a musician myself trying to break into the industry, it's such a horrible place to be, as much as I love music i'm starting to wonder if it's worth it.

Pot, Kettle, Black...

The guy is a despicable waste of space, talking about the over-sexualisation of the medium that he helped perpetuate himself.

He doesn't seem to have lost any sleep over the mass dumbing-down of the music industry.

with todays technology its becoming easier to release your own music and bypass the labels altogether.

Course he isn't. He's speaking from the generation gap. At 58, it's his duty to complain about 'kids these days.' If he wasn't shaking his head in dismay, he'd be failing his generation. He probably can't watch TV without tutting at how much better it was when he was a kid.

40 years ago, his parents were probably tutting at the crap he was listening to. 50 years ago the same generation were moaning about all this 'rock n roll' and how 'kids these days' were too sexualised in their dancing and how girls wore skirts too short or tops too tight.

True, he did write songs for Kylie Minogue and the like, and with 16 UK No.1s under his belt I doubt he's hardly struggling.

It's definitely not the same, how could it be?

Thing is - yes pop music is more sexualised, is it this old mans fault though? Yes, did he go to any length whilst lining his pockets to make pop music more respectable, less sexual or more "moral"? Of course he didn't.

The main crux of his argument is probably that he's no longer relevant and it's sour grapes to a market that he can't hope to compete in anymore.

I'm certainly not disputing the sexual content of todays pop music, but seemingly it's a tired, desperate attempt to gain sales in a market where children would rather spend their money on XBox games.

Way too sexualized is putting it mildly. I never allowed my kids to watch that crap until they turned 16 years of age.

These types of music videos should be MA rated and not put on TV before 10.30pm at night at least.

What... is this 1985 again? Didn't we already go through this nonsense with the PMRC hearings? You know, the committee that made such a big deal positing that rock music is pornography. The one that made such a stink over it that we ended up with acts operating solely in rebellion against their nonsense like 2 Live Crew. And their success helped to make swearing in music not only the norm but practically a requirement in order to sell a CD.

Is anyone sick to death of the "think of the children" mongoloids who feel it their duty to rescue society from itself? Did it ever occur to this nincompoop that there are other forms of music that you can enjoy with your two year old? Did it ever occur to him that if he finds it unacceptable for his infant child that he could simply ohhh.... not watch or listen to them?

I'm just curious, but why is it that we believe that if children see anything having to do with sex it's somehow a bad thing? People actively thwart their children from witnessing anything sexual, yet will plant them in front of a television where you can watch an entire variety of murders and violence. Death and violence: okay for children! Love and sex: BAD for children!

There is definitely an agenda regarding the early sexualization of children, even if the agenda is simply to make money.

The movie "Kick-Ass" features a 10-year old girl who uses the F and C words, and she also uses a slang term for penis.

I don't watch music videos very often. The one you posted is an example of why. Geesh, if I wanna see nipples, I'll pull up my shirt! Did they actually air this on tv? Must be one of the favorite vids of pre-pubescent boys everywhere.

I'm assuming it's not just Australia that sells bras and matching panties for very small kids in department stores.

Kids need to be kids and enjoy their childhood years. They will be adults soon enough.

How is a girl using words you dislike "sexualizing" children? What does that mean anyway: "sexualizing children"? Also, is it wrong for them to ever reference genitalia? Are we all supposed to pretend they don't exist simply because they're children?
