Whenever there’s a debate brought up about Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears or Lady Gaga (mainly concerning their wardrobe on stage), there’s quite a bit of feedback about how they dress really slutty and wear things that are much too revealing for their shows.
At first, I didn’t think much of it because people have their opinions and what not.
But then I really thought about it and notice that pop stars seem to always get the most negative attention for what they wear on stage. Why?
I thought maybe it’s because these stars in particular – are performers, show-women. They don’t only sing but they actually dance and move around quite a bit on stage.
In my past experience of going to shows (which mainly consisted of rock music), these musicians pretty much just stand around and play their instruments. The most moving a rock and roller would do is jump up and down frantically and bob their heads wildly. You don’t hear about anyone calling Hayley Williams (from Paramore) a slut or Taylor Swift and all the other country female singers sluts. They all basically cover themselves up for their shows but I believe it mainly has to do with the fact that they don’t intend on doing crazy dance moves like Lady Gaga and such do.
Just think about the wardrobe pop stars wear for their shows. Britney, Lady Gaga, and even Madonna. They are all about the same tightness and length. Isn’t this the point? You don’t see them walking out and about wearing the same similar clothing they wear in their shows. Granted, Britney has her moments in the past and Lady Gaga..well…she’s just outrageously unusual but it’s not like she wears a leotard when she’s out getting Starbucks, right?
What’s your take on this? Do you think pop stars have a legitimate reason for the tight and skimpy clothes they wear on stage? Or do you think there’s nothing stopping them from just wearing simple jeans and a tee?
