Judge Rules: Pink Concert Didn't Harm Girl, 11

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An 11-year-old girl was not harmed by going to a Pink concert and her attendance there isn`t evidence of bad parenting, a family court judge in Ocean County said.


Superior Court Judge Lawrence R. Jones said singer-songwriter Pink may have some suggestive moves and lyrics, but she`s an artist whose works aren`t necessarily inappropriate for pre-teens.

In the complaint, girl`s father sought to have Jones declare that the girl`s mother abused her parental discretion by taking their daughter to the concert."


In a divorce trial often one or both parties will throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. A divorce court judge has no business deciding if a young girl should attend a Pink concert.

Pink is a serious artist and in 2013 she was named Billboard`s "Woman of the Year" for her female empowering songs.

If the mother had taken her 11-year-old impressionable daughter to a Miley Cyrus concert, and in the days following the young girl started humping beach balls and twerking during recess, maybe then the judge would be entitled to have a say in the matter.

Pink`s music is timeless and it transcends generations, everybody from tweens to graying adults enjoys her well-crafted songs.

If Pink is on your young daughter`s iPod you`ve done a terrific job of parenting.
