‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ Mom Suing Media For Sexualizing Her Daughter

"Welcome to Raisins, handsome." 

The mom of a Toddlers & Tiaras contestant is suing media outlets for sexualizing her daughter. Susanna Barrett is suing TMZ, the Huffington Post, and London’s Daily Mail over a video posted of her 5-year old daughter, Isabella (whose totally single, guys), performing to LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It.”

The suit reads:

“Isabella Barrett did not act or portray herself sexually, erotically or provocatively; she was not ‘gyrating’ at a ‘nightclub’ or singing ‘about her sex appeal.’ On the contrary, it is the defendants who, through their articles, have thrust these false and vulgar characteristics on to Isabella,”

Those monsters! They took a perfectly harmless video of a tot singing the song which features lyrics, “When I walk in the spot, this is what I see. Everybody stops and they staring at me. I got passion in my pants and I ain’t afraid to show it… I’m sexy and I know it,” and totally made it sexual. How dare they go ahead and write down an exact description of a situation presented to them? And they call themselves reporters. (NY Daily News)
