Teens' safe drinking message drowned out by boozy pop songs and videos from Pink, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga

Teens' safe drinking message drowned out by boozy pop songs and videos from Pink, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga | Pop Culture | Scoop.it
HEALTH messages warning of the dangers of children drinking alcohol are being drowned out by the lyrics of chart-topping songs.
Danielle Uskovic's insight:
If a witch hunt is to be had, let's not only burn the female artists. There are plenty of male chart topping artists that have been promoting the idea of being "drunk" eg. Ed Sheeran, Taio Cruz, Flo Rida, LMFAO, Ludacris, Kokane, Kanye West, Eminem, 50 cent, Dr Dre, the list goes on and on. A good article other than wrongly accusing only female artists. This is a widespread problem and gender specific.
