Some ‘Voice’ Fans Outraged About The Sexualization Of The Show
Last night on The Voice they had a performance by Janelle Monae, who I personally love. She’s like the second coming of Prince with a sexy female vibe. She sang her song The Way You Make Me Feel and it got pretty sexy. While that kind of performance sells on the coasts, in middle America…not so much and it brought up something some of the fans have been saying for a while: the show has become too sexualized.
Some of the fans took to Twitter to show their disgust. They accuse the show of becoming to sexy and they think that it’s a family show,
@NBCTheVoice Isn’t this supposed to be a family show? That performance by Janelle Monae was anything but. Can’t we have a performance without thrusting sex in our faces. Can’t we at least try? Younger kids watch this show for goodness sakes. Disappointing for sure. Do better!

We can tell you that this is not the first time that the fans have said the show has gotten to sexual and it isn’t just limited to the performances. Many fans objected to Gwen Stefani or Miley Cyrus being on the show at all because of the sexiness of their acts. Many fans were also angry during last season’s finale when Chris Weaver performer in full drag. The pearl clutchers in middle America were also pissed that Blake Shelton left Miranda Lambert for Gwen.
Maybe the show is a family series and some of this stuff is inappropriate. Janelle’s act was definitely really sexy…but on the other hand, get over it. Maybe it’s because I’m an East Coast elite or whatever but I’m a fan of Janelle and I think her performance was outstanding. And remember folks, you can always change the channel to VeggieTales or whatever.
