SPAIN – The PSOE, which is Spain’s socialist party, criticizes “SloMo” as a prostitution song with RTVE looking into the matter.
RTVE President José Manuel Pérez Tornero assured that the comments contained in the song were “very carefully considered” and stated that “the lyrics of the song are a form of prostitution”.
This was answered by the head of RTVE, when asked about the issue by the socialist MP Lidia Guinart, during the Joint Committee for Parliamentary Control of RTVE Corporation, which took place this Thursday.
The PSOE MP stated that the choice of the song that represents Spain at Eurovision “is not insignificant”.
“It’s a matter of concern, the message of this song. The normalization of the commercialization of the female body does not seem to be the best message for the representation of public television in which, as we have repeatedly pointed out, it weighs the legal obligation, but also the ethics, to be an example on the path to full equality between women. and men “, the socialist claimed.
“The lyrics of many songs, especially some of the music trends that are flourishing at the moment, offer citizens, but especially the younger ones, messages that go in the exact opposite direction from the fight against violence against women.”
“And prostitution is, more or less, a form of violence against women. “A song that refers to any form of violence does not seem to be the best choice to go to a festival like Eurovision,” said Lidia Guinart.
