    'Toddlers' mom sues media for sexualizing daughter

    She's not sexy and she doesn't know it!


    That's what "Toddlers & Tiaras" pageant mom Susanna Barrett insists about her 5-year-old glam princess Isabella. Barrett claims that after a video of her little girl singing LMFAO's "I'm Sexy and I Know It" at a night spot surfaced, several media outlets tried to turn the non-sexual performance into something inappropriate, and she's suing mad.


    According to the New York Daily News, Barrett filed a $30 million libel lawsuit on Tuesday in Manhattan. She claims that TMZ, The Huffington Post and the Daily Mail described the little girl's act as "gyrating in a nightclub and singing about her sex appeal" when in fact Isabella was sitting during the song.


    "(Isabella) did not understand the concept of sex, let alone 'sex appeal' and could not have been singing about her own sex appeal," Barrett said in her lawsuit. Instead, "it is the defendants who, through their articles, have thrust these false and vulgar characteristics on to Isabella," according to the suit. "As a result, Isabella is now perceived sexually, erotically and pornographically, and (the stories) have placed Isabella in serious physical danger, attracting the attention of others who would seek to sexualize a child."


    Not long after the video surfaced, Barrett defended Isabella's videotaped performance to TMZ. She explained that the little girl was at New York's Libation for a pet charity event and started singing when the DJ invited her up, but that they left at the reasonable hour of 9 p.m.


    As for how the 5-year-old knows the lyrics to the LMFAO tune? "We just listen to the radio, and that's a real catchy song," she told TMZ at the time.

    What a ridiculous lawsuit. She's the one who started the sexualization of her daugher.

    This idiot woman was on Dr. Phil recently for competing against her 17 year old daughter in pageants. She is an attention whore.

    So it'd also be ok for her daughter to goose-step while chanting 'Heil Hitler' because, you know, she doesn't know what it means, right? Dumb bitch.

    I get the distinct feeling that she just might say yes to that.

    Why not let her sing something she does understand? Like twinkle twinkle little star or something.

    No she does not understand the concept of sexuality, but her mother does. Don't put your daughter in a situation where others could perceive her as sexualized.

    You might just have given her ideas for the kid's next pageant. I can see it now. A sequin encrusted, belly baring, pint sized Nazi uniform with the red bits swapped out for hot pink.

    What the HELL is wrong with these parents????? I'm just sick over how out of control this has become!

    It is no secret that I was a pageant mom, but we always kept it in moderation. This shit it totally out of control.

    When my daughter was 5, she did NOT do pageants, and watched Disney movies, she didn't know any "sexy" songs or sexy moves.
