Scandalous outfits…provocative dancing...
No, I’m not talking about the recent Miss USA Pageant. You know, the one with the “tasteful’ lingerie photo shoots and (surprise, surprise) subsequent pole-dancing debacle. I mean, come on. When’s the last time a Miss USA was caught up in a sexy photo scandal? Oh, that’s right. LAST year.
Now I don’t mean to scare you. Scratch that. I do. But I do it with love. I don’t want you to be sitting in an office somewhere, gunning for your first ‘real’ job, only to have some interviewer pull out a picture of you straddling a mechanical bull suggestively in cut-off jeans and a ‘Grab ME by the Horns’ t-shirt. That would be bad.
So be cautious, my dears. Be very cautious. I’m not saying don’t have fun, just don’t have too much fun when a camera’s pointed your way. Which leads me back to the beginning of this post. Remember? Scandalous outfits and provocative dancing?
The place: Pomona, California
The date: April 10, 2010
The event: The World Dance competition
Originally posted on YouTube and pulled, I was able to find this video at the Huffington Post. To view it, click here.
And here’s what really gets me: The girls danced well -- incredibly well. Dare I say they rocked? Only I didn’t see that. All I saw were a bunch of little girls shaking their boom booms in sexy costumes. Their value as dancers? Suddenly devalued. Devalued like the girl who busted her butt in college to get a 3.5 GPA, only to be told she wasn’t qualified to work for Acme, Inc. due to…ahem, unbecoming photos taken during Spring Break ‘09.
So be careful out there, girls. Be very careful. Trust me, #1 on the Top Ten Things That Have Never Been Said list is: “I’m so glad I made that ‘Girls Gone Wild’ video!” Plus, if I ever see you in one, you’re going to get a SERIOUS time out.
Big Brother’s out there and he’s armed with an ITouch.
