Are woman in mainstream music good role models for young girls?

I am so puzzled why so many young girls seem to think that female pop stars who are plastered on the radio and TV are considered role models in this day in age? I certainly wouldn't look up to them and certainly wouldn't want my children (if I had any) to be following their action.
Although that is just my opinion, do you think that there is any good coming from these so called "role models"

    • Sep 13 2013: It would be nice if music could step outside of human relation dependency (love and/or loss of individuals). I'd like some philosophical music devoid of specific emotion and more emphasizing sensations.

      Sometimes you can't relate to a piece of art and that is perfectly acceptable (visual pieces usually) it would be nice if more music was like that so we could get some differentiation.
