A Gender Performance? Kids Sing “Turn My Swag.”
The blogosphere is buzzing over the gendered nature of the performance of two British kids, singing Keri Hilson’s ‘Turn My Swag’ on Ellen recently.
The performance is heavy on the princess theme, and the kids sing lines like “If you ain’t gettin’ money (boy) / Then you ain’t got nothin for me.”
Do you see anything wrong with it?
Sophia is 8-years old and her dancer Grace is only 5. The girls are previously known for wearing princess dresses and singing Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Bass’. Ellen surprises the girls with a trip to the Grammy’s and back stage passes and presents them with over-sized tiaras, and magenta tutus.
