The U.K. singer recently slammed Miley and Rihanna's explicit twerking and dancing ways and their effect on children. She thinks the ladies are setting a bad example to young fans.
"Being sexual and in your face is not great for girls who are quite young. It depends what environment you're brought up in, but personally I've got a god-daughter and little nieces and I don't want them to see me acting crazy and naked in my music videos," the singer recently told the U.K's Mirror.
"But then when my little god-daughter is watching videos and doing all these moves, I say to my best friend 'you need to turn that off...she shouldn't be watching that," she continued.
Leona doesn't put all of the problem in Miley and Ri-Ri's hands though.
"It's up to the parents as well to be able to control what their children are watching. It's like, 'don't twerk, you're a six year old. Stop it," Leona added.
"You can't blame those girls, who are being young and sometimes dumb. They're just expressing themselves how they want to."
"Girls are not perfect, we all make mistakes."
What do you think about her anti-twerking statements? Leona tends to stay out of the music world drama so we don't think she said all of that to start a fight or for attention. She probably learned her lesson with that one when she was rumored to be dating One Direction's Liam Payne last year! Read about that here.
