Warner Bros Pimping The Kids

Warner Bros Tried To Make A 14 Year Old Girl Sing Sexually Explicit Song To Increase Sales

14 Year Old KeKe Palmer

There is a shocking, but believable article on the What About Our Daughters web site regarding 14 year old “Akeelah and the Bee” star KeKe Palmer. After the success of the film she was signed to a recording contract with Atlantic/Warner Bros.

But then they did the unthinkable. To drum up sales, they wanted a 14-year-old girl to sing the salacious song, “Freak Like Me” by Adina Howard. The song is borderline pornographic. Here’s a sample of the lyrics Warner Bros wanted a 14 YEAR OLD TO SING:

“Freak Like Me”

let me lay it on the line
i got a little freakiness inside
and you know that the man
has got to deal with it…

i want to freak in the morning
a freak in the evening just like me
i need a roughneck nig*a
that can satisfy me just for me
if you are the kind of man
cuz i’m that kind of girl
i got a freaky secret, everybody sing
cuz we don’t give a damn about a thing

cuz i will be a freak
until the day until the dawn
and we can pump, pump
all through the day to the early morn
come on and i will take you
around the hood on a gangsta lean
cuz we can pump, pump
any time of day it’s all good for me

Boy, you’re moving kind of slow
you got to keep it up
now there you go
there’s just one thing that a man must know
i’m packing all the flavor you need
i got you shook up on your knees
cuz it’s all about the dog in me

Somebody at Warner needs to get kicked in the teeth. Show of hands, how many of you would want your 14 year old daughter singing inappropriate music like that?

Imagine if Warner CEO Edgar Bronfman jr had a daughter and someone offered her a record deal at 14, dressed her up provocatively and made her sing “Freak Like Me.”

Oh that wouldn’t be acceptable at all, now would it. Well, don’t do to other people’s children the things you wouldn’t want done to yours.

Edgar and his wife Clarissa. Why don’t you make your wife sing “Freak Like Me.” She looks young enough to be your daughter

Yet another reason to boycott Warner Bros. It is vile that they would seek to exploit a child like this. It’s just disgusting:

Did Atlantic Records Attempt to Engage in Musical Child Porn? – Keke (“Akeelah and the Bee”) Palmer’s Story

I was contacted by Paul Porter from Industry Ears about a month ago about how Atlantic Records tried to get Keke Palmer of the “Akeelah and the Bee” to rerecord Adina Howard’s “Freak Like Me”.

I did not post about this at the time because I suggested that Paul offer Keke’s story to one of the major Black entertainment blogs such as Concrete Loop, Sandra Rose, Bossip or Crunk& Disorderly. I specifically told Paul to contact Natasha over at Young Black & Fabulous because I can remember several times when Natasha has said nice things about Keke’s red carpet pics.

So I held off writing about it so they could shop it around as a web exclusive to one of the blogs that can get as many hits as I get in an entire day, in one hour. The story has now been posted on so I am assuming they didn’t take my advice so I am free to post about it here. I want you to read this letter Paul sent me from Keke and her mother, Sharon and then y’all know moi will have some candid reflections to offer. I hope Paul forwards this post to Keke.

Here is a letter that was forwarded to me on October 4, 2007. http://whataboutourdaughters.blogspot.com
