Sometimes, younger people want to feel, act and be treated like an older person. It’s common for some older people to want to look and feel younger as well. They want to feel that same excitement and thrill they did in their youth. Celebrities are no different; some older celebs have been criticized for not dressing their age. At the same time, some younger celebs can hear the same thing. It’s difficult sometimes for the public to watch an innocent, young pop sensation transform into a risqué and provocative sex symbol right in front of their eyes.

She then caused a massive amount of controversy when she began to dress sexier and more provocatively.
