Story Supernova, Breast Size and Modern Hypocrisy

Teen pop stars today are implicitly, and sometimes even explicitly, presented as sex objects. Yet if someone dares to act upon such media suggestions, he is branded as sexist and primitive.

Latest victim of such hypocrisy was Miroslav Škoro (Miroslav Skoro), Croatian folk singer who recently gained enormous popularity by showing great wit while being in jury panel of Story Supernova Music Talents. During the last show he was appraising Ivana Radovniković (Ivana Radovnikovic) and couldn't resist mentioning the size of that young woman's mammary glands. He was immediately criticised in Croatian media for sexism and primitivism.

Talking to a teenager that might not be the most appropriate, but, then again, Radovniković brought that issue herself. She used to flash her sexuality before, first by informing Croatian public about tattoo on her butt and later by not confirming nor denying rumours about her breast being silicon enhanced. That kind of behaviour fits the description of the word "titillating".
