Taylor Swift Girl,7,Is Not Sexualised,Father Says!!!
The British father of a seven-year-old girl who has become a worldwide internet sensation with her impression of Taylor Swift today hit back at critics – and revealed his daughter has been offered a Hollywood deal to become the ‘new Shirley Temple’.Civil engineer Alan Vigor hit out at criticism from Piers Morgan that his daughter Xia’s act is being ‘sexualised’ in a ‘creepy’ way by telling MailOnline: ‘He’s wrong … We know the bigger picture over here so we don’t worry about Piers Morgan.’Ms Bernardo told MailOnline: ‘Xia is very into everything. She is a very inquisitive girl and she wants to do a lot of things and I want to give her that chance. Xia’s mother Christy Bernardo, 42, also defended herself, insisting she was not a ‘pushy mum’ after video of her seven-year-old performing Swift’s 2008 hit You Belong With Me in full make-up and with her clothes ripped off went viral.’People may say she’s on TV and I’m exploiting her but she does many things people don’t see. At Christmas we visited a poor village and she gave her toys away to the children there.’ Responding to criticism from Piers Morgan of his daughter’s Taylor Swift impression, property developer Alan said: ‘He’s wrong. He doesn’t understand the context. The culture here is very, very different. People in the Philippines see things differently.’On the show net week, Xia is going to dress up as Axl rose. It’s like a pantomime. It’s been taken out of context. She’s not going a friend’s birthday party in high heels and lipstick. It’s not like that. She would never dress up like that on a normal day.’Dressed in a white marching band uniform matching Swift’s and wearing full make up, Xiamara Vigor sent the audience wild with excitement as her clothes were pulled off to reveal a glittery dress during her perfect version of Swift’s You Belong With Me for the Philippines hit show ‘Your Face Sounds Familiar: Kids’.Xia, a celebrity in the Philippines who also stars as a princess in a family sitcom, has official Twitter and Facebook pages as well as dozens of fan pages packed with photos of the schoolgirl. Her Instagram account has 120,000 followers. Mr Vigor, 50, admitted he was concerned about the effect of stardom on his daughter, who misses classes to appear on a daily TV show in the Philippines where she has rocketed to stardom since appearing in a talent show at the age of five.
