Watch Out Miley Cyrus! Annie Lennox Hits Out At 'Pornographic' Pop Videos

Annie Lennox is the latest big name in music to hit out at risque pop videos with the singer blasting modern videos as "pornographic".

The 58-year-old was taking part in an interview with BBC Radio 5 live when she slammed today's crop of popstars for their barely there clothes and raunchy dance moves.

"I'm all for freedom of expression," she told listeners, "but this is clearly one step beyond, and it's clearly into the realm of porn."

Whilst Annie didn't name any one individual performer she did hint that she was making reference to the likes of Miley Cyrus and Rihanna with the comment, "how do you stop your kids being exposed to it? It's so powerful. You don't want to see your seven-year-old girls twerking all over the place."

The star did go on to insist though that she does admire her younger counterparts, adding in reference to her recent blog post on the subject: "I have nothing against these artists. I was never bashing them. There's nothing wrong with sexuality and sensuality and I think these artists are beautiful. And, in many ways, what they do is fantastic, but it needs to be age-appropriate.

The Eurythemic singer also recently called for music videos to be rated in the same way as films. She previously wrote on her Facebook page that if a singer created "a soft porn video or highly sexualised live performance, then it needs to qualify as such and be X-rated for adults only".

"I don't think there's one parent of young boys and girls in this country that would honestly, comfortably say they were fine with seeing their kids being exposed to that kind of thing," she explained to Radio 5 live. "I think this debate is about getting the voice of reason back there to say 'look, we want to protect our kids.'"

Lennox isn't the only star to hit out at the raunchy acts of today's pop stars with Sinead O'Connor hitting the headlines recently for her war of words with Miley Cyrus, who's now infamous MTV VMAs performance has had everyone talking.

The Irish songstress wrote open letters to the Disney star warning her not to be "prostituted" by the music industry. But despite their feud - and Miley's response that mocked Sinead's former mental health problems - Miley revealed to the Today show this week that Sinead inspired her 'Wrecking Ball' video, and that she actually does respect the Nothing Compares 2U star.

"I think she's an incredible artist," Miley said. "I don't know how anyone can start with someone who's like, 'Hey, I really respect you and I really respect you and I really like you - you know what, you suck!' That was kinda crazy." But the 20-year-old admitted that she's used to endless criticism, saying: "You can write as many open letters as you want. It's nothing new for me."
