I don't watch music vids at home (we don't have foxtel either), so it's a no simply because of that.
However music is a big part of our lives, I play drums and my family all play instruments or sing. Eventually DD is going to warm to one particular genre and (hopefully) find some form of self expression through music. And in that, I really don't want to be the mother that stifles her expression.
My personal opinion is most of the music today is rubbish. I also think its my job as a parent to let her know that she doesn't have to gyrate, or get around in a state of undress to be beautiful/popular/talented. The plan is to not have to face this until she is much older (ie a teenager!!).

Having a two year old bounce on your lap can be distracting and lead to inarticulate responses

THEN my dd gets pitied for having a mum that encourages such grotesque behaviour....
Can't win really hey!
FWIW, thanks OP for "not saying I'm a bad mum", even though the tone of your post made it blatantly obvious that I am one in your eyes I know I'm a great mum - my dd tells me all the time! And If that 'shocks' you, I really wonder whether you actually live on this planet?? What shocks me is the parents who beat and abuse their kids but whatevs!
Gosh I'm glad I didn't mention the Lady Gaga "I wanna take a ride on your disco stick" incident then

I'm sure you are a wonderful mum. Assuming one's tone on the internet can be very misleading. I'd just stick to reading their words. Because you'll notice that I've never said that you or anyone who let's their child watch music clips were a bad mother. It's an issue very close to my heart because of my past.
Read back over some of my previous posts if you like. You will then see that I don't need a 'tone'. I actually say what I think!

I thought girls on film was banned when it first came out?

And yep, letting your little girl sing about rising on a disco stick makes me feel sad.

But DD1 started watching music video clips at 17yo. I felt that was beyond my reach to disallow.

So I doubt my kids would! They LOVE Lady Gaga and PINK and beg me to put them on in the car,which I happily oblige.<3 them!
