Gary Barlow criticises Black Eyed Peas' lyrics

Gary Barlow has revealed that he doesn't like his children listening to Black Eyed Peas - because their lyrics are too unsuitable.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, the Take That singer and X Factor judge admitted that he reckons the band's lyrics aren't suitable for kids' ears, choosing to bring up his children in an environment free of swear words. He said:

"Luckily, lyrics go over their heads for the most part, but I have had five nine year olds in my back seat singing along to Black Eyed Peas songs with 'F' this 'F' that and I'm like, 'Right, I'm stopping the car!"

Barlow also took time to criticise today's music videos, calling them overly "sexual" and "rude" for younger audiences. He added:

"Music videos these days are so sexual. The other day, I wanted some music in the kitchen and put on one of the music TV channels and a video came on which as so rude that I had to turn it off because my nine year old was with me. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a prude but I don't think I really want my children seeing those kind of videos at that age."
