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

Positive Messages

Pretty good. The song "Then I Woke Up" starts off talking about being a loser and wanting to be "fixed" by Dr. Phil, or "living in a dream" as a better alternative to real life, but then resolves to say "it's OK to be me" ("There's a party on down the street/But nobody invited me/…Dr. Phil won't you please fix me?/…Waiting for the phone to ring…/Why doesn't he call?"/It's all just kickin in/And this is where I begin/Just being me/But it's OK to be me").

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

One mention of 50 Cent, Dr. Phil.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that, as with most Disney-sponsored bands, the content on this mini album of three songs is clean and fine for any age. Their song "Alter-Ego" was featured on Bratz: The Movie Soundtrack. Also, they have nothing to do with the popular books and soon-to-be movie The Clique about junior high populites. The Clique Girlz sing about typical teenage ideas, boys, wanting to grow up, fitting in, and being OK with being yourself.

These kids CANNOT sing!

I'm very disappointed in Disney. They really could have done a better job picking their new stars. It's awful to humiliate these girls by telling them... Continue reading

Perfect for tweens


What's the story?

In their major label debut album, sisters Destinee (represented by the Star symbol) and Paris (Princess Crown), and BFF Ariel (Heart), aka The Clique Girlz, are showcasing their undeniable vocal talent and taste for something Disney-fresh, with the help of producers Robert Schwartzman and John Field (Pink, Switchfoot). The pop princesses have already been the opening act for big names like the Backstreet Boys and the Jonas Brothers, and were featured on an episode of MTV's Kimora Lee Simmons: Life in the Fab Lane.

Is it any good?

The album consists of three songs that will knock your socks off and leave you scratching your head at the young age of these girls. Only 12 and 13 years old, the girls met in school and instantly bonded with their love of music and the desire to make it big. The music is a little more rock than your usual Disney brand, with three-part leads and strong harmonies. "The Difference in Me" is a cover of the original by American Idol runner-up Diana DeGarmo, and it lets older sister Destinee show her Ashlee Simpson-like rocker sound. "How Do You Like Me So Far" is a upbeat anthem about being yourself and not what people expect you to be. "Then I Woke Up" is a teen-typical ditty about fitting in and dreaming of something bigger, like being "a hip-hop queen, a rock 'n' roll dream." Those dreams are quickly becoming reality for these Girlz. No question they can sing; but let's hope the fab life doesn't get the best of them before they actually do grow up.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the name of the group and what that means or represents for them. Do you think it is a well-chosen name? Does it imply something negative or positive? Given the popularity of movies like Mean Girls, is it helpful to draw attention to the sometimes hurtful reality of life as a teenage girl?
