Watch: Controversial ‘Single Ladies’ dance number by 7 year olds

May 15, 2010 by · 5 Comments 

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.”

    Our children are being sexualized at earlier and earlier ages. This is just more of the same. What were the parents thinking?

    It’s terrible. The saddest part is that they are good dancers, but you can’t see talent when all you’re looking at is skin and sexual moves. It only gets worse as they get older because they have more to shake. After hearing the justification from the parents, these poor girls are doomed!!!

    OMG Where is Chris Hansen (To catch a Preditor),
    Ok parents of these kids and parents who enter thier children in to these dances and allow them to wear these outfits I want you to burn this image in to your head.
    Pull up a map of all the child sexual offenders in your area, now knowing some if not all these offenders are watching this video at their computer with a bottle of KY. Pretty sick image, well you just helped these child preditors get off by offering them a powerful visual aid. I hear Woody Allen is looking for a new wife.
