A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this female group created from the Pussycat Dolls' reality TV show is all about one thing: being sexy. The song is showcases the girls bragging about how good they look, and how some try to imitate them (which they taunt these posers for). In the song's video, they have super sexed-up appearances, with lots of wild hair, tons of make-up, and very, very skimpy "outfits."

What's the story?
You may already be familiar with the girls of Girlicious. For 10 weeks these singers competed on national TV for a spot in the group. The show, Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious, followed over a dozen ladies as they vied for the PC Dolls creator Robin Antin's approval. The final four winners became the group and this single -- exclaiming how sexy they are -- is part of their debut.
Is it any good?
Producer Robin Antin, who several years ago presented us with The Pussycat Dolls, has now set the women's rights movement back many years. After a single viewing of the video and listening to the song, you might begin to wonder if women had actually been granted the right to vote. You see, this single not only portrays the female singers as empty-headed bodies and good for one thing only (sex), it also pits women against each other in a race to the bottom. On a positive note, the single does have a good beat.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about why female groups popularize sexist stereotypes. This song is all about embracing the superficial and being proud of it. With their super-sexy appearance, who do you think the group is marketing itself to: young men or women? Why do you think young girls would listen to a song that might possibly make them feel insecure about their body and appearance?
