Snow Patrol singer Gary Lightbody has urged Jonas Brothers to start sleeping with women. He thinks they are giving out the wrong message to fans, because teen always want to break taboos.
He told Daily Record:
‘When a band takes a stand so vehemently and so opposite of my own views I have to speak up, simply as a concerned citizen. This is not about their music, that I won’t comment on. Two words – promise rings? From all our teenage years onwards, we think of sex a lot. You think abstinence is going to cut the mustard?
I may know very little, but one thing I’m sure of is that this simply will not
work. The things we make taboo are the things kids naturally gravitate towards. Swearing, sex, drugs, tattoos, guns, violent games and movies, dark rock music, all these things are in the ‘Do Not Touch’ pile and that is way too tantalizing..
..for kids, who are only trying to find out for themselves about life’s adult mysteries. When they are only taught abstinence they are really taught nothing at all. We all have a primal, almost ceaseless urge to mate and a bit of silver on one finger isn’t going to stop millions of years of animal evolution.’
