Re: A budding young singer
David, I can appreciate some of what you're saying, but I think you're taking all this a bit too seriously. I don't see anything inappropriate about a young girl like Emi singing benign lyrics like "my baby". What's the big deal? It's just a song. I liked the older Donny Osmond and Michael Jackson better too, although I was never a big fan of either one. I did like a few of their records though. Still, I thought Michael had a great voice for a child singer, and most of his records probably had far more "grown up" lyrics in them than anything that Emi is singing - and yet, no one seemed to find anything offensive in his recordings. In fact, they were all huge hits.
