A lot or a little?

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

Positive Messages

Nothing much of any substance at all.

Violence
Sex

Some sexy innuendo, but nothing explicit. The CD cover art is more graphic than any of the lyrics.

Language

One appearance of "s--t."

Consumerism

A couple of clothing brand names are mentioned.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Brooke Hogan's lyrics are innocuous, and also not very interesting. "S--t" is said once, and a few clothing brand names are mentioned. The rest is nothing new, nothing brilliant, and nothing much.

What's the story?

Brooke Hogan is known to reality show viewers as the daughter of wrestling star Hulk Hogan. Her UNDISCOVERED album is a collection of nicely produced, danceable pop songs performed by a beautiful young woman with a pleasant, little-girl warble and enough sexy attitude to put herself across. There's mention of guys and relationships, of course, and dancing in the clubs, and cute outfits. Lyrics are innocuous but also not especially interesting -- though it's refreshing to hear a young woman step up, without the sexist posturing that so often accompanies the male equivalent, and embrace club/party life with the big boys. There's nothing much else to say about Undiscovered, except that guest appearances by Paul Wall and Beenie Man do manage to add a little spice.

Is it any good?

Hogan sounds like she's having a blast on 14 very similar tracks -- most of which cover the same lyrical territory. It turns out that the most provocative thing about this gentle, pleasant album is the cover -- Hogan is dressed in a skimpy black leather bikini that nearly completely exposes one breast. Despite the fact that she comes off looking like a 30-year-old stripper here, 18-year-old Hogan plays it safe in every other way -- vocally, musically, and in the message of her unmemorable but non-controversial lyrics.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the outfit Brooke is almost wearing on her CD cover. Given the fact that her parents appear to be strict (if her dad's demeanor on their reality show is a true indication) about sexuality and also manage her career, why do you think they chose such a provocative look for their daughter?
