Watch: Controversial ‘Single Ladies’ dance number by 7 year olds
There’s a bedlam actuating over a group of 7-year-olds who danced provocatively to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” at the World of Dance competition last month. The video — which is now burning up the web — shows a troupe of young girls in midriff-baring tops, short skirts, and black stockings gyrating to the Grammy-winning tune at the competition in Pomona, California on April 10.
Parents who are upset about the video are claiming that the outfits cross the line and that the leotards in the original video by Beyonce are less revealing that the outfits that these girls are wearing.
One commenter said “The girls are very talented, but? pelvic thrusts at their age looks ridiculous. Other dance moves could have been used.”
Another had this to say. “The problem I see is the thrusting and grinding moves. Those are sexualized moves…on prepubescent girls. That’s just inappropriate. Don’t get? me wrong, they’re talented. But outfits that accentuate sexual body language is just wrong on a seven year old. Any seven year old.”
