Steamy performances from pop sirens such as Miley Cyrus and Rihanna are destroying the self-esteem of young girls, according to a university academic.
The leading Birmingham City fellow claims the use of scantily-clad females in raunchy music videos is also impacting on the lives of women.
Criminology lecturer and researcher Dionne Taylor accused stars like Miley Cyrus - who sparked criticism after her provocative gyrations with Robin Thicke at the MTV music awards - of giving 'mixed messages' to impressionable females.
'She has appropriated the video vixen persona,' said Prof Taylor.
'There was a part where she had black backing dancers and she smacked their bottoms. It was ignorant. The men we see in these videos are fully clothed and women are scantily clad.'
