Leona Lewis told The Mirror: ‘Being sexual and in your face is not great for girls who are quite young. It depends what environment you’re brought up in, but personally I’ve got a god-daughter and little nieces and I don’t want them to see me acting crazy and naked in my music videos.
But then when my little god-daughter is watching videos and doing all these moves, I say to my best friend ‘you need to turn that off. She shouldn’t be watching that’.
So it’s up to the parents as well to be able to control what their children are watching. It’s like, ‘don’t twerk, you’re a six year old. Stop it.’ You can’t blame those girls [Miley and Rihanna], who are being young and sometimes dumb. They’re just expressing themselves how they want to. Girls are not perfect, we all make mistakes.’
