Just when you thought music videos couldn’t sink much lower, someone finds a way. Now it’s a 6-year-old aspiring star out of South Florida who performs in a clip that’s just…..beyond.
Take a look at this:
According to news reports:
In “Booty Pop,” 6-year-old rapper Albert Roundtree Jr. repeats the refrain “I can make your booty pop, booty pop, booty pop,” as his face is sandwiched between two bikini-clad butts bouncing to the track’s beat. Watch the video above.
Later as he alludes to a night of intimacy with one of the gyrating women, “We can have some fun tonight because we both feeling right,” he takes out a water gun, holds it at crotch level, and hoses a nearby dancer down.
The clip’s director, Tyler Council says he was commissioned to do the video by Albert’s parents, who hope their son becomes a rap star from it. They paid “peanuts”, he says but he did the video because he needed a quick gig.
“He’s just trying to imitate his idols that he hears on the radio,” says Council of Albert. “There’s no touching going on, there’s no drug abuse.”
Well, phew. Because so long as he didn’t have actual sex WITH THE ADULTS, it’s OK……
Except it’s not. Some people are calling for his parents to be charged with child sex abuse. Others are wondering why child services haven’t removed the boy from his parents.
US psychiatrist Dr Keith Ablow writes:
Carla and K Roundtree, parents of a 6-year-old rapper and Tyler Council, producer of the boy’s “Booty Pop” music video should be legally charged with child sexual abuse, convicted and made to register as sexual offenders. The parental rights of his parents should be suspended, pending an investigation by child protective services.
They conspired to put a 6-year-old boy in a music video in which he raps about having sex with an adult woman and shoots a long, tubular and very phallic water pistol into the air—mimicking orgasm—while sandwiched between two bikini-clad woman who dance erotically within inches of him.
The six-year-old is clearly exposed to erotic behavior from adults who appear in the video and is portrayed as a sexual conquerer himself.
Erin Gillespie, a spokeswoman for Florida’s Department of Children and Families, told FoxNews.com that she could not confirm or deny that an investigation had been launched into the video.
Meanwhile, the director of the video is defending it. “It’s supposed to be a joke, but I’d say [only] about 30 percent of the people watching it find it funny,” Tyler Council, president of the Florida-based Froze-N-Time Productions, told the Miami New Times. “But I still don’t regret it.”
