​Sinéad O'Connor Says Sexualization Affects 'The Males,' Worries About Justin Bieber


Bald advocate ​Sinéad O'Connor has climbed a top her soap box yet again, this time to save an unwitting Justin Bieber from the moors of sexuality.

She told "Magic FM" about the music industry phenomenon to which "the males" also fall victim:

''I think that people focus an awful lot on the female aspect to this, but it is also the males. The very young male artists who are practically children or look like children are also being sexualised.

Justin Bieber is a great example. When he came along he was only 16 years of age. Obviously he was extraordinarily talented, so I'm not trying to negate that, but he was very much being sold on his sexuality.

... Britney Spears, of course was quite inappropriately young to be sold in that way, dressed up in a school uniform. But I think that really people forget that the guys are going through it as well, and I think that is quite important.''

Of course, this comes after a garden variety attempt at slut-shaming Miley Cyrus, but at least her latest crusade is being conducted without the gratuitous use of open letters.
