Singer-songwriter Annie Lennox told ITV's Tonight programme that artists should act responsibly as role models to children.
She said: "Liberation always comes with responsibility. There is no such thing as absolute freedom. I just think in a way that you have profited in a way from that young audience and then you are just like 'I will do what I like'. I don't think that's fair. I think it is exploitative."
