Do you think 8-year-olds need to be introduced to the subject of plastic surgery, even as a precautionary warning? Well, Dance Moms envelope pusher Abby Lee Miller thinks so. Lifetime recently aired an episode where Miller had the girls do a risque routine based on “topless dancing” and old school burlesque, which was shockingly inappropriate. And now she’s back with another shocking, albeit less racy and sexy, routine. What is the dance entitled “Nip and Tuck” all about?
In the dance Miller tried to convey “a message about our body image … about people who have work done.” She added, “I feel very strongly about going under the knife,” Abby says. “You should not go under that knife unless it is absolutely necessary.” In the piece she had the girls wear flesh toned costumes giving the illusion of nudity (again) and had surgical marks drawn on their faces. Miller called the piece “eerie” and “dark.”
What happened to little girls dancing to “Singing in the Rain” or “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”? Do you think these kids are too young doing a piece on an adult topic like plastic surgery?
