''I think it's better to really make yourself proud of your music and your songs and your voice, and not sensationalise everything,'' she tells MailOnline
US music icon Nancy Sinatra, known as one of the most sultry sex sirens of the 1960s says the performances of female stars in modern videos are excessively sexualized.
The 74-year-old tells MailOnline, ''It's unfortunate that women feel that they have to resort to something sensational. I think it's better to really make yourself proud of your music.''
Nancy, whose 1966 hit 'These Boots Are Made for Walkin' caused controversy for its raunchy imagery, added that: ''I think it's better to really make yourself proud of your music and your songs and your voice, and not sensationalise everything. I think that's disrespectful to yourself.''
Referring to the explicit videos, she said: ''We don't need that stuff and people who are talented and who do good work don't need that. They don't need to resort to that. We are foolish and foolhardy to promote that kind of behavior. All the videos I see now are sexy and raunchy, what's the point? I don't get it.''
Asked if her father, Frank Sinatra, would have approved, the singer and actress - whose signature mini-skirted look turned her into a sex symbol - replied: ''God no, he would have hated this.''
Do you agree with Nancy or is she just being old school?
