Think she might have a point...

"It's almost like we've gone back to the Fifties.  Women are allowed to have a career and children, but they're also expected to balance the two while looking sexy and perfect.  I have a theory that 9/11 changed things dramatically.  We've gone back to a petrified, war-time mentality.  I think that's why music, in particular, has started to reflect this very all-singing, all-dancing, Broadway-like entertainment that we see in the charts at the moment.  Because it's a distraction and nobody - when they're scared - wants to exercise feelings of negativity".
