A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Positive Messages

"It's All About Me" discusses dreams and aspirations. All these ideas of success however involve being a star in some way ("Who will walk the red carpet/will be a star with her name in lights...set all the style trends/be the runway queen"). "Is My Dream Worth the Price?" is a song about having to sacrifice love for success ("Is it worth having a dream/with no one there to share it?...I don't want to be a lonely star") which may give young girls the impression that being popular and having boyfriends should be more of a priority than academic success.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

The song "Something So Right" is about a romantic relationship: "I never knew someone could make me feel something so right...I'm looking in your eyes/you're looking in mine."

Language
Consumerism

This soundtrack is for the new Bratz movie Bratz: Girlz Really Rock; a related video game is also being released. Additionally, the Bratz line of merchandise includes the Bratz dolls as well as a full line of accessories.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this soundtrack to the movie Bratz: Girlz Really Rock is a safe compilation of light and fun dance songs that are primarily about friendship, although a few of the tracks go a bit beyond innocent friendships. There's a love song duet, a song about the Bratz girls future successes (namely being on fashion magazine covers and living the celebrity lifestyle), and another that laments that success is nothing without someone to share it with.

What's the story?

Trying to capitalize on the success of tween hits Camp Rock and High School Musical, the Bratz have released a similar direct-to-DVD movie about a performance art camp. The soundtrack is a set of eight upbeat, girly songs that can be found in the musical, as well as their related instrumentals -- probably included for karaoke sessions.

Is it any good?

Surprisingly fun, this soundtrack is ripe with hip-hop beats and diva-inspired vocals and has a production level similar to popular mainstream acts like Miley Cyrus. Some of the best songs on the album include the fun "Everything We Do" and "We're Gonna Shine" (which sounds a lot like "What Time Is It?" from High School Musical 2). "Friends Are Everything" has a great jazz piano accompaniment and "Summertime Fun" is as enjoyable as it sounds. With these songs, the Bratz do a good job of bringing the trend of tween musicals down to the elementary school level. It's only when the girls digress into being self-absorbed (like on "It's All About Me") that the album falls short of the Disney standard.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the Bratz girls' priorities. Do you think they take school and work seriously, or are they more about partying, dancing, and socializing? How do you think the girls show friendship? With songs like "Friendship is Everything" and "It's All About Me," do you think the they might make some girls feel insecure about themselves, especially if they're not popular in school or into fashion?
