About time she stopped singing cheesy junk (no offence)
Amazing CD, I love the songs, and "How do you Love someone" is my favorite. These songs have actual meanings, not some mindless teenage crud. Sure some of it is... well, kids won't notice. Just skip the dirty songs (there aren't that many) and you'll be all set.
Overall, the CD is a wonder. However, some things you might want to look out for is the sexual references in the song "Hot Mess," and the hinted reference in the song "Hair." Ages eleven and up will enjoy this CD, and probably will understand any mild content on this CD.

Catchy tunes, but mature content
I bought this for my daughters who are 5 1/2 & 7 1/2 and for the most part the CD is fine and the girls love the songs, even though I don't think they understand much of it. There is one song where she sings about a "friend with benefits" and "you wake up in your bra & your make-up" and I think I'll skip over that song in the future. It reminded me that I need to preview their music before just letting them listen to the CD. I may just remove that one from their play list or burn them a CD with the songs that are ok and leave the others off the CD.
I kind of like it, the songs are catchy and some can relate to a situation. Like "How do you love someone" is really relatible. Some songs are horrible, some are awesome. And at least she waited till she was older to sing songs like this and blow it all up as a teenager.
OMG! The sexual content is barely there and most kids won't even notice it. So what if a guy is playing with her hair? It's not explict. It's not too sexy. The only thing I would worry about is Ashley TRYING to be too adult. She really wants to break free from Disney and she needs to realize that it will take time. She's still a Disney star no matter what, unless she gets covered up in a sheet and poses for Vanity Fair...sound familiar?
