Jamie Lynn Spears Criticized For Letting Daughter Dance to "Fancy": Fair or Foul?

by at . Comments

Britney Spears' less famous little sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, still grew up too fast as well. Now she's under fire for putting her daughter in that same position.

After getting pregnant at 16, Jamie Lynn's adorable daughter Maddie Briann is now five, and already following in the Spears family footsteps.

Case in point? Jamie Lynn Spears posted this video of Maddie dancing to "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea, shaking her hips and pumping her chest:

What Spears felt was harmless fun may not be, some people say.

On the hit track, the Australian rapper brags about being a “bad bItch” who “takes all the liquor straight” and has men “just wishing they could bite it.”

“This video is totally inappropriate,” said one expert in such matters, clinical psychologist and Columbia University professor Dr. Judy Kuriansky.

“Maddie is way too young to be exposed to that type of music.”

According to the psychologist, the danger is real: “Maddie could start repeating those words and dancing suggestively around her schoolmates."

“Five-year-old children simply don’t have the cognitive development to know what is socially appropriate. She will think this behavior is normal.”

Jamie Lynn, who watched Britney Spears writhe around performing “I’m a Slave 4 U” as a young girl, may be subconsciously repeating unhealthy patterns.

Jamie Lynn, who recently married Jamie Watson, "grew up with a superstar sister and a world of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll,” the expert explains.

“Some young mothers say, ‘I acted this way because of what I was exposed to, and I will not do this to my child.’ It’s very sad she’s not breaking the cycle.”
