    Poor girl... her clothes are torn, and she obviously can't afford a bra

    I've never really thought about it TBH. But DD is only 22 months and we don't ever watch music clips here, only ever if we go to my sisters place and Channel V is on. And I've found 6 or 7 out of 10 are ok. E.g. Carly Rae Jepson, Delta Goodrem, The Black Keys, Labyrinth even, Justin Bieber, One Direction. All VERY popular songs and all appropriate (minus 2 lines at the end of the Labyrinth song). We are VERY musical in our family, I grew up watching Rage and Channel 10 Top 40 or whatever it is, and I'm fine. I watched Xtina - Dirrty, Britney - Hit Me Baby One More Time, I'm A Slave For You... And I turned out fine...

    Nope. I don't listen to radio either if he's in the car, just our ipod music.

    I face an uphill battle though, he learned 'sexy and I know it' and 'your sex is on fire' from his so-called father. Yuck. The man disgusts me.

    He also does learn some of the lyrics from kids at school, although I would be HORRIFIED if they showed the clips there.

    Don't worry most people are ok with it.
    Its Russia. She isn't dressed inappropriate for Russia. Women there dress very different to here.
    I know, my dad is Russian and lives in the Ukraine. I have been to the country in question.
    My husband is Finnish and grew up in Finland and Russia for a little while. Im am well aware how different it is over there and my husband obviously more aware than me as he spent his childhood there.
    He was gob smacked at this woman and that it was on a children's show.

    The way I actually came across this video was when I was watching Foxtel with DD and we were flicking through Chanel's and noticed the start of this kids show, dd seemed quite intrigued by it (even though it was in Russian) and the next second I see this lady on with her boobs hanging out.. The YouTube video doesn't do much justice to what I seen after she had done her performance she was sitting down with the host and you could pretty much see her genitals
    She was wearing white see-through panties and yes.. I don't need to say much more.

    Yes it's Russian.. But music clips aired in Australia can be worse than that.

    My husband knows a little bit of Russian and was able to pick up on what she was saying in her lyrics...
    Not something I would want my children listening to even if we lived in a different country and it was "acceptable"

    I don't even let DD listen to popular music cos it's terrible, overseas noise that isn't really music. There is no way I would let her WATCH that rubbish.

    There are so many amazing artists and bands from Australia. DD and I listen to triple J in the car and we download our favourite songs and listen to them on the ipod at home. If we want to see a clip we look it up on youtube.

    I am very much against the sexualisation of children and am trying very hard to counteract her dad's side of the family who think it's cute.

    To those saying they turned out fine... are you unaware of how these overly sexualised messages can affect children? Can we please define "turned out fine"? I don't think there's any suggestion that watching music videos will automatically turn our daughters into drug addicted prostitutes lying in the gutter nor our sons into gun wielding pimps, however if it in any way influences their notion of sexuality or of their inherent worth... can you say they've "turned out fine"?

    ETA I actually YouTubed that LMFAO song to show my children because I knew they'd think it was hilarious... My six-year-old smashes it out in the back of the car! Like I said, I'm not a prude... but IMO that song doesn't reinforce any destructive gender stereotypes. Instead it makes a mockery of them.

    I think its important to listen to lyrics and then decide if thats what u want filling ur childs head. What messages is it sending them?
