Should 12 Year Olds Be Singing About "Summer Flings"?
I don't think I even knew what a "summer fling" was when I was twelve. Things have obviously changed since I was a kid. Ten year olds are walking around with iPhones these days it blows my mind!
Willow Smith is 12 years old and her song (and especially music video) Summer Fling has caused a bit of controversy. There are preteen elements in the video- Water gun fights, jumping on trampolines, swimming.. all fun, appropriate activities for the age group. The lyrics: "It's only for the summer but we do it anyway.." eh not so much. I'm not old fashioned by any means, but this video was a bit awkward to watch.
What do you think? Is Willow too young to be singing on the topic of summer flings?
