And that's because when you're listening to a song, you don't always catch the lyrics, but the videos tend to act out the lyrics, so there's no escaping them. I'm not always a fan of pop music but I have to say that some of Lady Gaga's songs are pretty catchy, but the lyrics are

I notice how many people in the comments are saying that Camilla doesn't have the right to say anything because of her own morals, and I disagree. If she were criticizing someone for having an affair, that would be one thing, but these videos are a different matter and I think Camilla has a perfect right to speak up about them.

I like Camilla's stance on this one, if what the Daily Mail is reporting is true. I too think some of the music videos today are presenting terrible role models for teenagers.

Other sites have picked up the story, but they all quote they Daily Mail.

I was going to point out the comments on the DM as well. Camilla has every right to make a stance on this. Having an affair and sexual abuse are two completely different things and I cant believe people would put the two in the same bag. This place obviously needs attention and a sponsor and the Duchess would be great for that.

I too, have to agree with the Duchess. Its not just the sexual aspect but the violence too. I am a fan of both Gaga and Beyonce, and there music is very catchy and often have fantastical live performances. But so many videos that become mainstream and available to children are just plain inappropriate. Eveyone wants to push the button and see how far they can go, but when will it be too far?

Camilla Parker Bowles goes shopping, but yellow line rules are forgotten | Mail Online

It can be tricky finding a parking space near the shops at this time of year.

So that's probably why the Duchess of Cornwall - or rather her driver - had to keep pulling up on yellow lines when she stopped off for a bit of Christmas shopping.

In fact, her Land Rover Discovery was illgegally parked for around two hours - but managed somehow to avoid acquiring a ticket.

-----------------

I am sure the usual DM crowd will soon pepper the comments section with the usual nasty insults.

Like it was down to Camilla to choose where her driver chooses to wait for her! Also, lets not forget there mightbe security concerns about having the car to far from where she is. The article does mention that it was her security detective that was driving, indicating that she was unacoompanied when she was not in the car - another reason why they may have wanted to have the car close by.

Very true and valid points Muriel.

But unfortunately for Camila and the BRF, the Daily Mail readers dont really read the article FULLY.

The its one rule for them and another rule for us posts have already started.

That is one well decorated tree.
The girl in the second picture looks a little like Ingrid-Alexandra.

The Duchess looks really at ease with the children and their mums, it must be a wonderful treat for them.
