70s Rocker Chrissie Hynde Slams Today’s Pop Music Tarts as ‘Sex Workers’ Pushing Pornography

Looks like 70s rocker Chrissie Hynde has little respect for today’s female pop stars. In fact, she is calling them “sex workers” who are selling porn, not music.

Hynde has made a few statements that have upset liberals lately, but, come on, she is 100% right about the poptarts in music today.

And now Chrissie Hynde has waded into another contentious area – the overly sexualised nature of modern pop music.

In an obvious reference to scantily-clad stars such as Miley Cyrus and Rihanna, the former Pretenders lead singer branded them ‘sex workers’ for selling music by ‘bumping and grinding’ in their underwear. The 64-year-old also accused them of doing ‘a great deal of damage’ to women with their risque performances.

Miss Hynde launched the scathing attack during a tense interview on BBC’s Woman’s Hour yesterday. She suggested that today’s provocatively-dressed stars are sending the wrong message about how people should view sex.

Miss Hynde added: ‘I don’t think sexual assault is a gender issue as such, I think it’s very much it’s all around us now.

‘It’s provoked by this pornography culture, it’s provoked by pop stars who call themselves feminists. Maybe they’re feminists on behalf of prostitutes – but they are no feminists on behalf of music, if they are selling their music by bumping and grinding and wearing their underwear in videos.

‘That’s a kind of feminism – but, you know, you’re a sex worker is what you are.

‘I think it’s provocative in a way that has nothing to do with music. I would say those women are responsible for a great deal of damage.’

Exactly right, Chrissie!
