Teenagers see their favourite singer as role models, but these artist aren't very good at it. A lot of their songs include references too underage drinking and how much fun it is.

She says how the alcohol turned her violent and bashing up people until she enjoyed it. She always stated she was Lacking in self-esteem as a teenager, she said the alcohol made her feel more 'confident and chatty' and helped her 'fit in' with her friends.

She may not realise this in the present, but alcohol can have many different outcomes on many different people. This article is good in terms of awareness.
