Annie Lennox slams music industry's 'highly styled pornography'

London, Oct. 6 (ANI): British singer-songwriter Annie Lennox has blasted the music industry for advocating "highly styled pornography".

The former Eurthymics star's claims emerged after Miley Cyrus and Irish singer Sinead O'Connor were recently involved in an online war, after O'Connor urged the 20-year-old singer to resist music industry's pressure to "prostitute" herself, the Mirror reported.

The 'Why' hit maker claimed on her Facebook page that she was disturbed and dismayed by the recent spate of overtly sexualized performances and videos.

The mum-of-three asserted that certain record companies are peddling highly styled pornography with musical accompaniment, "as if the tidal wave of sexualized imagery wasn't already bombarding impressionable young girls enough." (ANI)
