Chloe Lattanzi's new video creating a big stir around the world


Chloe Lattanzi, Olivia Newton-John's daughter, recently released her first music video on the internet and is receiving a lot of attention for it's graphic imagery.

Some are shocked by the very dark images of the video, while other's find the strong artistic vision to be very powerful.

The Daily Mail in the UK said some groups had a problem with the video for glorifying the themes in order to get 'attention'."

Child psychologist Michael Carr-Gregg told Sunrise this morning in Australia that he is calling on the Federal Minister for Mental Health to ban the music video.

However, the daughter of Olivia Newton-John says that her new music video, featuring suicide, drugs and self-harm, is all about artistic expression.

Chloe says, "The concept is actually quite dark, but not literal in meaning."

While the video does have strong imagery, I personally support artists reaching for their own vision.  That's how artists develop and grow, by finding their own "voice" as artists.

  2. I agree with you here. I support Chloe. With the internet...I can't imagine how you really go about banning on the internet, anyway...As I'm sure you know, Olivia's video "Physical" was once banned in Utah..Some people will always want to censor art, but I think that's rarely the solution. Thanks for another thought-provoking post. I so enjoy your blog.

  3. While I find the vid a bit difficult to watch, I give her credit for following her muse (although I'm not certain if the muse's name is Kira!). 25,000+ views in a week on YouTube is nothing to sneeze at!
