<p>I wonder why these are the MAIN role models that a lot of Y<a class=oung women seem to have a great deal of choices in today’s society. However, the list of women they choose to look up to his indeed a very interesting list!  Of course as well as unfortunately they are mainly music stars! I mean yes they sing, dance and acclaim some sort of fashion sense BUT WHY IS THAT ENOUGH to be considered a role model? A lot of tweens – teens and even adults look up to these women……

Even when I was in high school some of my role modles may have been a few singers BUT they had and SHOWED another sense of educational involvement with their fans as well. I also looked up to people who were “actually making a difference” in the world and for the world. Whatever happened to people wanting to aspire to be astronoauts, fire fighters, police officers, attorney’s doctor’s, chemists or even a school teacher for goodness sake.

No disrespect to the craft of music BUT these mainstream women have NOT shown or proven to be self worthy for world role models! Showing skin is one thing but being naked with tiny cover ups is not good. Also singing about kissing girls to re – dating a boyfriend who brutally beat you, to a singer who talks about worshipping the devil, to a singer having boyfriends while married and tells the media she doesnt care… “So far” Adele seems to be the safest, but she does have a very serious POTTY MOUTH! I understand letting loose sometimes but doesnt “a lady” know when to be one – especially in PUBLIC? Let your bloopers be in private and occur as less as possible when in public.

Nawww, I will take a SERIOUS pass via choosing 80% percent of today’s r and b and pop singers as “first choice” role models! Sorry!

Wait….let me take that back.. I cant say that because what I evidently feel is a role model attached to succes as well as WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY may be different to the people / fans that support these women above! You then would also have to be forced to define what is success to you? If it starts and stops with MONEY….then I can see why these women would be some women’s ONLY role models.

One thought on “role models

  1. great post – I know exactly what you’re saying! I don’t know that anyone has ever declared them role models, but that they become one because they are in the media all the time. Beautiful women are great, but women should be aspiring so much more than just having good looks and it’s sad that the entertainment industry doesn’t thrive on things like that.. which is just terrible for all the little girls out there! Not all stars are just about the money though – thinking about Lady Gaga being a martyr of sorts for the gay community, and Angelina Jolie who is a rep for the United Nations. If only there were more of them!
