Donny Osmond Shooting Down Lady GaGa and Beyonce Knowles
Donny Osmond is not a fan of "Telephone" music video which features two big stars Lady GaGa and Beyonce Knowles. Instead, he is "upset as a parent" because the clip encourages "profanity, sexual exploitation, nudity, and graphic violence."
"I'm all for freedom of speech and against any form of censorship, but all I know is that I'm a parent and I'm upset about this," he said on his "Donny Osmond Show" on radio recently. "Unlike 20 years ago, in today's modern, viral world in which content becomes instantaneously available irrespective of age, I wonder whether the music industry might need to rethink its marketing policies with regard to making an explicit music video containing profanity, sexual exploitation, nudity, and graphic violence available to anyone with Internet access."
"I wouldn't want my child to watch this video. Would you? What do you think? Should these two extremely gifted female role models for millions of young girls, maybe, have given a little more thought to the effect it might have on their core audience?"
Directed by Jonas Akerlund, "Telephone" music video features Lady GaGa stripped down to her stockings by two female prison guards, dancing in a thong and doing other outrageous scenes. Despite the backlash, the video has received million views on YouTube.
