3.0 out of 5 stars Why use explicit lyrics???, 19 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Who You Are (Audio CD)
I know I'm going to sound like an old fogey but...I was going to buy this album for my 12yr old daughter. Jessie J was on Blue Peter - a children's show, performing Price Tag. "Look at me kids, buy my records, I'm really cool"

I wish these pop acts would realise that a big chunk of their audience are 'teeny boppers'. There is no reason to include explicit versions of their songs, the songs became hits without the swearing (Cee Lo Green take note) and with such a large following of young children surely it is better to remove these lyrics altogether? Like it or not Jessie j, (Katy Perry on Sesame Street) etc etc should have a responsibility as role models to their younger fans. Either that or keep them off children's telly!

Right, I'm off to buy her a JLS album...

Who You Are My son (8 years old) loves Jay-Z but obviously is not allowed the albums. However, we do buy the edited and "clean" versions which usually pop up about a fortnight to eight weeks after the original release. If you trawl the internet, or even HMV on occasion, you may well come across what will be titled the "edited" or "clean" CD album. Amazon are great for this but various US and EU based online stores will also stock 'em. The only downside is they may cost a couple quid more. Hope this helps.

I am in the same position my 9 year old wants this for her birthday again after seeing her on Blue Peter and after reading this I won't be buying it . Maybe aletter to blue peter is in order.

My partner bought this for my 5 year old son as he loved the song 'Price Tag'. The first few times we listened to this my son didn't notice the swearing and we just cringed each time we heard it! Then suddenly he picked up on every swear word and we had to turn it off. What a shame, a girl with such a great voice has to spoil it by swearing. Why is there no warning label on CD for parents? Maybe this is the norm now and people think this is everyday language and ok to use.
