Selena Gomez and the Jailbait Tango

Watch this dance scene from Another Cinderella Story starring Disney teen sensation Selena Gomez:

Granted, there’s probably more provocative dancing than that at the typical high-school prom nowadays, but is this sexy tango really appropriate for Disney TV?

The latest young starlet to roll off the Disney assembly line is 16-year-old Selena Gomez. . . .
Gomez’s career came to my attention in an unexpected way when I walked through my living room where some of my younger children were watching Disney TV’s showing of Another Cinderella Story, the starlet’s 2008 direct-to-DVD feature film debut. . . .
I was stunned by a scene in which Gomez and co-star Drew Seeley danced a decidedly adult-oriented tango. Imagine a father’s reaction (remember, my children were watching this) when Gomez leaped upward and flung herself against Seeley, wrapping her legs around his waist.
Perhaps not since Jennifer Grey shimmied her way into the Dirty Dancing arms of Patrick Swayze–“What Baby wants, Baby gets”–has a film so blatantly blended the sexual symbolism of dance with the jailbait frisson of adolescence. . . .

Read the whole thing. Don’t worry. Chris Hansen won’t bust you for it.
