Chrissie Hynde brands pop stars as ‘SEX WORKERS’, days after sparking outrage with rape row

Has Chrissie gone too far?

Chrissie Hynde has sparked outrage once again by branding today’s pop stars as “sex workers”.

It comes just days after the former Pretenders star faced an online storm afterclaiming women who get drunk and dress immodestly may be inviting rape .

Now she’s hit out at scantily-clad singers, claiming they have created a “pornography culture” by “bumping and grinding” on stage.

The star spoke out during an interview with BBC’s Woman’s Hour yesterday, saying: “I don’t think sexual assault is a gender issue as such, I think it’s very much all around us now.

“It’s provoked by this pornography culture, it’s provoked by pop stars who call themselves feminists.

Has she gone too far?

“Maybe they’re feminists on behalf of prostitutes – but they are no feminists on behalf of music, if they are selling their music by bumping and grinding and wearing their underwear in videos.

“That’s a kind of feminism – but, you know, you’re a sex worker is what you are.

“I think it’s provocative in a way that has nothing to do with music. I would say those women are responsible for a great deal of damage.”
