Charlotte Church thinks Miley Cyrus has a 'skewed perspective': 'All she knows is to be sold'
Singer Charlotte Church has given her opinion on the current female pop scene and admitted that she doesn't think Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry are particularly good figures for fans to look up to.
Speaking to Stylist about Cyrus, she explained that growing up as a Disney cast member and trying to make the transition from child star to adult artist must be really hard because all she knows "is to sell and be sold":
"It's so obvious this young lady has a skewed perspective because of what she's been through. All she knows is to sell and be sold. This sounds patronising but in a couple of years she'll change her tune. I went through a similar-ish thing, not to the depths she is taking it to. But it's exhibitionism. As a teenager, you're really egocentric. Why would you give a f**k about the rest of society."
Church, who is a mother to six-year-old Ruby and five-year-old Dexter, added that she also doesn't like the thought of young impressionable girls looking up to pop superstar Katy Perry as a role model because she often leaves very little to the imagination where clothing is concerned:
"I try to let my kids make their own way and be free, but trying to protect them and let them make their own choices at the same time [is hard]. For instance, I don't want my little girl to see a Katy Perry video. I like Katy Perry; she's funny - I'm not fussed on her music - but I don't want my little girl to hold her up as an ideal."
"I think a lot of what she does is marketed to children. All that candy stuff [in her 'California Gurls' video]. If [Ruby] had seen that she would have loved it, sweets everywhere and then there she is - this naked chick!"
