I watched the Super Bowl halftime show yesterday. I was really impressed with your dance moves and just how wonderful of a singer you are! I may not agree with all your songs or lyrics, but I do appreciate that you give your best while performing. My only complaint is, the value of your talent is diminished by the performance outfits that you use.
I know teenage girls that look up to you as an artist, and as a woman. When you wear those outfits I feel like the message you are sending is that it doesn’t matter how much talent you have, it is all about your looks and sex appeal. As you might know, the Super Bowl is the single largest sporting event where human trafficking takes place (see Huffington Post article). I don’t know how much control you have over your wardrobe, but maybe it would be good to consider, for the sake of younger girls, the kind of message you are communicating not only in your songs, but through the clothes you wear.
Lastly, I want to thank you for your work to help people after Hurricane Katrina. The positive impact you have had is exemplary and well-noted. I hope you continue to be able to make good music and continue to use your life and wealth to be a positive role model of service to other artists and musicians, as well as ordinary everyday people.
